We may think we’re doing all the right things, but inconsistencies in workouts, distractions, and just doing workouts that are not fitting our actual goals can all set us back from achieving the benefits of strength-focused training. Welcome to the second part of the 5-part series for building consistency and adding strength gains to your workouts. The part 2 strategy focuses on training with a purpose. TRAINING STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS #2 Train with a Purpose No matter what your training goals, training with a purpose will help prepare your mind and body to gradually progress to a stronger you.

However, having a plan that gives you a base to get your body going and then adding different exercises to confuse your muscles is the recipe for success in this series. So let’s train with a purpose to become stronger, more mobile, and learn a couple of new movement skills by changing up your routine. THE BULLET PROOF PLAN REVIEW The bullet proof plan is designed to train a specific muscle group on separate days (a split routine) to achieve a Stronger YOU!

  • Bullet Proof Plan for a STRONGER YOU – Part 1: Legs
    by Maria Sollon on April 8, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    https://youtu.be/esMFUdtyPlY Strength is one of the most important factors for achieving improved performance in sports or in everyday life. So how do we develop strength in a way that is safe, effective, while also being sustainable in the long run? There’s no doubt it starts with some proper planning and then a commitment to stick with the plan. Although everyone’s plan may differ based on goals, abilities, and availability to train, there are some very basic elements to strength training that can truly work for anyone. So if you are wanting to create muscle strength, definition, and power with simple, easy to follow tips and strategies, then welcome to this first of the 5-part series - Bullet Proof Plan for the Stronger You! TRAINING STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS #1 Keep It Simple Whether you’re a fitness fanatic looking for something new, or dreading the thought of getting started, my advice when taking on a new challenge is to keep it simple. Make small, short-term goals that you know you can achieve, then expand from there. Think of driving a manual transmission. Don’t try to go from 1st gear to 4th gear. Start at first, then focus on gear 2 on so on. These simple commitments will help your mind and body work together in sync while preparing you for more challenging movements later. I’m confident that this mindset will keep you 100% committed for the long haul! The fitness industry has been trending toward developing programs that are designed to combine intense movements within a limited timeframe to condition the whole body. Although very effective for different types of goals, it’s important to be aware that HIIT-style training generally does not focus on strengthening specific areas of your body using high resistance techniques designed to fatigue you muscles and increase strength. So I hope you find this plan as a refreshing, easy to follow, strength training base for you to get inspired, moving, and performing at your best! THE BULLET PROOF PLAN The bullet proof plan is designed to train a specific muscle group on separate days to achieve a Stronger YOU! This plan is laid out in a 5-part blog series that include muscle specific workouts along with helpful strategies to achieve your goals. Here’s the Bullet Proof Plan layout: Part 1: Legs Part 2: Upper Body Part 3: Core Part 4: Total Body Cardio Strength Part 5: Active Stretch Split Routine: These workouts are designed to do on separate days in a split routine. This will allow you to focus on specific areas of the body to develop muscular strength. Feel free to include other exercises into these workouts along with a cardio routine or other activities you enjoy. Frequency / Duration: • Perform each workout on separate days throughout the week. • Commit to a 3-4 week cycle that allows you to improve over time. Reassess after this time frame and make adjustments to progress your program. *Also be sure to adjust the incline as your body gets stronger. Progressions: All of these workouts can be interchanged or pieced together into one big circuit. After doing this split routine for a few weeks (approx. 3-4 weeks), change it up by combining two muscle groups together OR perform all the workouts as one big total body circuit. Your strength is in your hands! STRONGER YOU WORKOUT || LEGS LEGS WORKOUT Get the most out of your workouts to develop your ultimate best and become The Stronger You.

  • Don’t Go It Alone, Work Out as a Couple
    by Dr. Michael Mantell on March 23, 2021 at 3:47 pm

    Don’t Go It Alone, Work Out as a Couple Michael R. Mantell, Ph.D. Work out as a couple? You mean, sweat together?? Only if you want a better relationship, want to improve your sex life, get more oomph out of your workouts, and lose some weight while getting healthier. This is the time when most New Year’s Resolutions have essentially evaporated, including the big three: having a better relationship, exercising more and eating healthier. Data tells us that adherence to exercise and healthy eating improves significantly with a supportive partner. When that partner is our significant other, research says there’s a 90% increase in the likelihood that we’ll stick with our goals, including exercise. Not only does adherence to exercise improve, leading to healthier and happier living but there’s advantages to relationships when couples work out together. You’ll grow more connected when you workout together and that time you’d spend working out alone or with others, now becomes “us” time. Not only does going to the gym together promote quality time with each other, it allows for discussion of mutual goals and fitness levels, creates opportunities for sharing a common commitment to wellbeing, creates mutual motivation, develops deeper bonds with each other and offers many chances to celebrate each other’s progress. You naturally focus on each other in ways that couples often don’t. Further, your workouts will actually be better. You have an accountability partner and it’s likely you’ll push each other, kindly of course, to do more, go further, and press your limits. Perhaps most important to couples who work out together regularly are matters of the heart, that go beyond the gym. Exercise is simply a wonder drug for your libido. With the touching, support, encouragement, sweating, moving, pheromones endorphins, dopamines and other feel-good hormones that are released, you’re more likely to be in the “right frame of mind” for post-workout enjoyment. A survey of 1,000 adults 18 and older who run at least once per week outdoors or on a treadmill, found that 66% believe they have more sex when they run as a couple. Think about it… sweaty hands, a racing pulse, shortness of breath – what’s that sound like to you? Romance! James White, Ph.D., author of “The Best Sex of Your Life” (1997, Barricade Books), professor emeritus at the University of California San Diego and former director of the exercise physiology and human performance center, believes that runners have 15-20% more sex than those who don’t run or exercise. And Theresa E. DiDonato Ph.D. noted, “Lab studies show that after jointly participating in an exciting physical challenge or activity, couples report feeling more satisfied with their relationships and more in love with their partner.” Marital therapist, John Gottman, Ph.D., tells us it’s important to be intimately familiar with each other’s worlds, and working out together sure builds that opportunity. He also teaches that fondness and admiration are two of the most crucial elements in a long-lasting romance, which grows when you cheer each other on during a workout. “Turning toward” each other is the basis of emotional connection, romance, passion, and a great sex life, Gottman advises, and when you are helping each other on the Total Gym or tossing a medicine ball back and forth while doing lunges, that’s exactly what you are doing. So hit the HIIT (high intensity interval training), do planks face to face, crunches on a Swiss ball or Bosu while tossing a ball to each other, leg raises with some manual resistance from your partner, push ups with your partner pushing gently on your back or face-to-face in “missionary form,” single leg lunges helping each other up and down, and sit-ups sitting on your partner’s lap, legs wrapped around his/her waist. You can do these together on your Total Gym equipment in your own bedroom, too! Plan a Total Gym workout date. It’s cheaper than marriage counseling, and it’s an inexpensive way to connect, communicate and celebrate each other. Perhaps most importantly, sweating it out with your sweetheart will add more sweetness to your hearts. Have fun! The post Don’t Go It Alone, Work Out as a Couple appeared first on Total Gym Pulse.
