Good Morning! Today I would like to talk about how to properly incorporate bodyweight training into your workout routine. While weight training IS absolutely essential for your progress, it should NOT be the only way that you are training. You do not have to walk into the gym and put up as much weight as possible every time you work out. If you can move your own body via push-ups, pull-ups, body weight squats, ab wheel rollouts, etc., you are better off than people who lift heavy weights yet cannot do a pull-up.
Whether you're training for an event or just exercising to be healthier and look better, using the 4 basic training principles to plan your workout schedule is extremely helpful. The principles are specificity, progression, overload, and recovery. I'll explain them in general here and discuss each one in detail over the next couple weeks.
There's still room to register for the bootcamp classes. Class one runs Mondays/ Wednesdays at 8 am, class two runs Tuesdays/Fridays at 7pm. Don't miss your chance to join a fun, supportive group and get the exercise you've been putting of to do. It's always more fun to sweat with company.
I would love to extend my passion for all things healthy to you! I love to "walk-the-talk" on fitness and holistic living, research trends, and find solutions for others. I would be crazy to say I figured it out all on my own. I would like to extend an invitation of blog topic requests!
Your mind and thoughts will direct you toward success or failure. Minding your thoughts is fully in your control and one of your most powerful choices you have. Mental training is as important as any physical fitness endeavour you attempt.
I'm always happy to have guest bloggers and have them offer some insightful tips to stay fit and healthy. We put our forces together with Kendra Thornton this time to bring you some helpful solutions to stay healthy while on vacation.
It's hard to be motivated to work out. Getting to the gym, or just hitting the deck and sweating it out. Having someone else there helps with your accountability, help you get through the rough parts and even spark a little competition every now and again. And as it always helps to know you're not suffering alone:)Here is two of my most fun clients, Sarah and Jamie working it:
