A Varied Workout gets Results & helps us keep mobile in our older years……
Are you getting the results you are wanting to achieve on the scales or when looking in the mirror?!?!
In order to enjoy all the physical benefits that exercise has to offer, vary your usual routine on a regular basis. Performing the same type of activity at the same level of intensity week after week gives your body nothing new to adapt to, it slows down or stops you from reaching your strength and endurance potential.
As a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor I find that I have the same individuals in my classes week after week. I try and mix up their workouts so that they walk away feeling the burn from working all their body parts.
There are 4 types of body training, these include;
- Upper Body Training
- Core & Trunk Training
- Lower Body Training
- Total Body Training
This type of training covers exercises that call for the body to move on many different planes, at different angles and at different speeds. Enhancing overall strength, stamina, balance and power. Target your core, this involves muscles of the trunk and pelvis involved with supporting the spinal column, including the abdominals and lower back.
If exercises are performed correctly and with consistency, better posture, improved balance and increased joint stability can result, significantly decreasing risk of injury.
As we get older we generally become less mobile. No need!! Simply taking a step onto the bus or up our stairs to bed or the bathroom can become a chore. Functional Training allows us to cover all our body parts, build strength and stamina gradually. DO NOT restrict or keep the same fitness routine day in day out. Ask your gym, class, fitness instructor or Personal Trainer to give you ideas or write you a new programme..
In order to get results, changes need to be made!
