This day and age it can be very difficult indeed to
go to the gym. Life is very hectic and busy, which
will create a serious challenge for remaining
consistent with exercise each day. Exercise is
however, just what we all need to reduce stress,
and give the body the extra energy it needs to carry
out normal living.
The best results of exercise are achieved through
the use of refined techniques, functional exercises,
cardio, the right nutrition, variety, awareness,
consistency, and motivation over a period of time.
The refined techniques mean correct form to isolate
muscles or to target areas of the body. Efficiency
is need to ensure stimulation of the muscles. With
weight lift training, which is also known as
resistance training, you’ll need to eliminate any
type of momentum.
It is also important to move the weight about using
a full range of motion. Full range of motion causes
the muscle to contract for the right amount of time
and help to ensure the right length of the tendons.
The goal here is to strengthen the joints of your
body by stimulating the muscles.
Cadence is also helpful, as it is a term that refers
to the rate in which the resistance or the weight
moves. The best results with cadence are gained
by slow movements which will cause the muscle
to contract for a longer period of time. You
can mix in a series of fast and slow cadence,
which is very beneficial with sports type
Using the correct angles will achieve muscle
isolation in target areas and help to decrease
the risk of injuries, which is great for those
using heavy weights.
Functional type exercise is a popular technique
that will stimulate the core and torso of your
body while you work on another muscle group at
the same time. As an example, when you perform
a dumbell press while lying on an exercise ball.
Your abdominal muscles and the core muscles will
contract to hold your body into this position,
while your chest and tricep muscles will push the
dumbells up. This type of exercise and challenge
will cause maximum stimulation to your body and
keep the workout interesting and refreshing.
Cardio is another exercise that is great for the
heart and lungs. The total number of calories
you burn is very important along with maintaining
the right heart rate. The formula for your
heart rate is 220 minus your age times 60 for
the lower number, then 220 minus you age and
times 80 for the upper number.
This is also known as fat burning zone. Cardio
will also de-toxify the body and help to strengthen
the immune system along with other benefits. The
muscles will contract and pass the lymph along,
which will allow the immune system to clear away
dead cells and bring new ones in.
Anytime you exercise, warming up is very important,
as it will prepare your body for the more
demanding workout of cardio. You should always
allow 15 – 30 minutes prior to weight lifting and
10 – 15 minutes prior to cardio exercises. You
should also stretch as well, as this will help
get the blood flowing through your musles and
get them limber as well.
An ideal schedule for working out is to warm
up then follow with cardio. You can lift weights
on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday then cardio
only on Tuesday and Thursday.
Even though you may think your schedule is simply
too busy to maintain a schedule for working out,
you’ll find that adding exercise will actually add
more time, as you’ll have a lot more energy in
your normal everyday life. You can think of
exercise as the batteries that will help to give
your life power.
Welcome to Calisthenic Movement. My epithet is Alex. And in this video, I evidence you 10 basic strength practises. Let’s start with the first exercise, the Scapular Raise or Scapular Raise Hold. This exercise focuses on your back. It appears easy on the first position, but were difficult if you perform it correctly. You hang on a table, let your arms directly and draw your shoulder blades down and together. With military exercises, you activate your lats, trapezius and many other muscles in the back. This exercise is very helpful for your straight limb pluck strength. The next exercise is the Push Up Hollow Body Hold. Push your straight arms powerful towards the field and make a hollow mas position. With that you activate your pushing and core muscles, which include the delts, chest, serratus anterior and your abs. This exercise is helpful for your straight limb pushing strength. The next exercise is a Dip Forward Lean Support Hold.
Again you push yourself up to let your mas move slightly out of the vertical position. The more you elevate your mas out of the vertical position, the harder this film get. This exercise is good to civilize the shoulders, lats, and trapezius, and will also help you to develop straight limb strength. Let’s move on with the Reverse Plank Bridge or Crab Hold. Support yourself with your arms and elevate your pelvis until your mas is in horizontal boundary. Now you activate the backside of your shoulders, trapezius and the whole posterior chain, which includes the erector spinae, the hamstrings, and glutes. The next both activity are the Handstand Walk and the Hold on the Wall. The tread instructs your pushing muscles like shoulders, chest, and triceps in the first place, and also requirement reinforcement of your core muscles to stabilize the body. The Hold On the Wall instructs your trapezius and shoulders. In the same day you mobilize your shoulder joints when you place your wrists (?) very near to the wall. These practises could be (?) the basic strength and mobility for the straight handstand. Let’s go on with the Bear Crawl or Gecko Walk.
Start gradually and always move one limb and the opposite leg forward at the same day. This exercise instructs your whole anterior chain which include abs, delts, chest, hip flexor, and the quadruplets. In addition to that, you get a coordinative civilize. The next exercise is the Arch Hold. Lift your arms and draw your chin to your chest. Avoid to look forward and over-stretch your cervix. Lift a bit of your upper-body as well as your legs. This exercise is perfect to civilize your posterior chain. It instructs your trapezius, erector spinae, the hamstrings and glutes. The exercise to civilize the opposite muscles is the Hollow Body Hold. Here you also draw your chin to the chest and keep your thought in a neutral position. Lift the shoulder blades and legs off the field. This exercise is a very good static abdominal exercise. The last but no least exercise is the Deep Squat Hold. Here we have a lot to pay attention to.
Go down late without losing the tension in the lowest position. The whole paw stays on the field. And you move downward in a straight line. Don’t move the knees too far in front of your ankles. And open your legs when you go down, to give your mas some area. Revolve your pelvis backwards. And pull back your shoulder blades. When you execute military exercises correctly, you don’t simply civilize your legs but also parts of the back and core. I hope you gain some information about the basic strength activity with this video. If you have any questions about this video, just leave a comment. Thank you and see you soon.
