Fitness Term of the Day

KNOWLEDGE


PERIODIZATION

  • The systematic planning of your training. Studies show the best way to make size and strength gains is to cycle periods of volume (weight/reps) and intensity.

MIX IT UP

Knowing when to up the ante in weight training can be a bit confusing. Many get stuck in the rut of doing the same routines and never seeing any changes. Hypertrophy, or muscle growth, depends on the right stimulation. Having multiple training routines and cycling them in will keep you reps ahead of the others.

Before you set out to conquer the world…..

 RISE & SHINE

The first sips of java juice kick in & you start to feel the surge. Before heading out the door to be the beast of the board room, knock a few sets of these out along with your morning fuel.


Quick At Home Workout  

It’s the privacy of your own home. No need to worry about others watching or judging here. Heck, you don’t even have to change out of your PJ’s. So you may have to move some furniture around. That’s a small inconvience for the returns on this investment. The main goal is to get energized and your blood pumping.

#strength

  • Body Squats
  • Pushups
  • Chair dips

Using body weight is extremely effective for building strength & flexibility. Add variations of these as well.

But wait there’s more….

  • Lunges
  • Pull ups
  • Planks

#goals

There is no magic formula. No complicated rep and set count. Again, the purpose is to get motivated, pumped and a good jump start to the day, so do as many as you can.

 

  • Start with 2 sets and build on that. Track yourself.
  • Focus on form. Nice slow controlled movements.

And don’t forget to stretch.
