4 Beginner Errors Which Are Killing Your Progress

Here I’m going to address some common gym mistakes that I see over and over again with newcomers.

Along with Charlie’s previous article on rookie mistakes in the gym, these are the absolute top tips for when you’re starting out, and hopefully following them will allow you to focus properly on your routine and results instead of faffing around for six months on the spinning hand machine that not even the gym manager knows what’s for.

Mistake 1: Not having the balls to say you’re doing it to look good

I’ll start with the most important of all points here, and one you really don’t hear that often, even from some personal trainers:

Pick a goal and fucking stick to it.

It’s unreal the amount of guys and gals I see in the gym pissing about with all kinds of ridiculous routines that have no bearing on the actual overall goal they are working towards, which 99% of the time is to look better.

There’s absolutely no shame in acknowledging that the sole reason you go to the gym is to look more attractive.

Not admitting this is like saying you frequent ‘Beavers Gentleman’s Club’ for the agreeable decor and engaging conversation (as true as that may be).

It’s literally the vast majority of peoples’ goal, and the single goal that keeps 95% of gyms andsupplement companies in business.

I’m not saying that all beginners should start with this goal, I’m just saying that whatever your goal, admit it to yourself, make it a priority, and stick to it.

Whether you want to get bigger, add strength, compete in the Crossfit Games, become a powerlifter, or just get genitally acquainted with the sexy Bosnian girl on reception, it’s important you have a goal.

Without a goal you are simply training for the sake of training.

I see endless guys doing ‘all-round fitness’ routines where they do a load of cardio one day, Olympic lifting the next, followed by a hungover Saturday of pure bicep curls.

Life is short enough, so stop wasting your fucking time, and get on with a solid routine that’s going to make you look like a Roman statue.

To help you out, try:

For size: Reg Park’s Beginner Routine
For strength: Wendler’s 5/3/1 
For powerlifting: 5×5 Stronglifts

Mistake 2: Too much weight

This point is something I’ll admit I used to be very guilty of myself – hurling 140kg on the bar for squats five months into training.

I’m surprised I didn’t put myself in a wheelchair.

Do not attempt ridiculous weight without first focusing on consistent repetition of the movement itself.

Practice is a very important thing when it comes to weight training, and it’ll make you much stronger in the long run, as well as less likely to injure yourself or create muscle imbalances.

Form is important.

I’m not saying put jack all weight on the bar and do 500 reps per set, but don’t go overboard to impress the local gym wankers.

Just train with integrity, and train properly.

Take it slow.

There’s nothing worse than seeing someone squat with far too much weight while leaning too far forward and doing things to their pelvic floor that should only be performed by a professional Japanese contortionist, made even worse by wearing Nike Air Max.

Practice the movement, get it right, and move on to the next weight once you are comfortable.

A great routine to build strength and make sure you are making progress at the correct weight is the aforementioned 5×5 routine.

Mistake 3: The wrong gear

Closely related to my last point about Nike Air Max, make sure you pick the right gear to wear right from the start.

I’ve seen people training in jeans (seriously – get the fuck out), people using weight belts for bicep curls, wrist wraps for bench press, and god knows what else.

You’re going to want to train in shorts.

There’s almost never a situation where tracksuit bottoms are a better option.

You need the freedom.

And let’s face it, if you can’t hide your legs, you have to train them!

Don’t bother with too much equipment at first.

Chalk can be useful for deadlifts and bench, but try not to rely on wrist wraps, gloves, knee wraps, lifting straps and weight belts until you get into some serious weight.

You want to build up strength before you start relying on too much equipment.

Like I said, shoes are important.

A pair of spongy trainers might be great for running, but when you’re squatting, deadlifting, or even benching, you want a solid shoe with a good sole.

Powerlifting shoes are great, or Olympic lifting shoes, but even something flat like Converse do a better job than your Sports Soccer constantly-on-sale Asics.

Having a stable base for lifting weights is important and will allow you to perform the movement properly and with correct form, as well as ensure you’re not performing any unnecessary leaning which can lead to muscle imbalances.

 

Nothing says “I play for a five-a-side team twice a week, drink cider because I don’t like beer, and have trouble maintaining an erection” like a full Manchester United kit on the leg press.

Just fucking stop.

Mistake 4: Not supplementing

Whatever it is you do in the gym, whether running for an hour or concentrating solely on weights, your body is going to be breaking itself down.

And the way to repair yourself is by getting in plenty of protein and eating correctly.

The thing is, if you’ve just started at the gym it’s highly likely that you’re not eating properly too, or you’re at least in the beginning stages of learning to eat properly.

And this is where supplements can be really useful for recovery.

Spot Reduction and Stubborn Fat Loss

Use whatever label you want, it’s undeniable that everyone has “trouble areas” that oftentimes make weight loss diets and fat loss workouts appear ineffective.

And while myths like “crunches shrink your waist” have been proven inaccurate (or maybe more the result of wishful thinking), it’s hard to deny that fat does seem to melt off certain areas of your body, while stubbornly clinging to other parts.

One of the most difficult aspects of the fitness industry is that the “experts” are divided. One group focuses on what works, and the one that can scientifically prove what’s effective. Ideally, you are able to marry the two. But oftentimes that takes time.

Is It Broscience…Or Results Before Research?

All scientific research needs to be funded. And earning that funding is a long, difficult process. Not to mention, a lot of the cool stuff that you do in the gym would never get funded because most research companies just don’t care about muscle building and fat loss the way the average guy does.

This led to a divide where being pro-research meant accepting an anti-bodybuilding slant on fitness techniques. For example, because it hadn’t been exhaustively concluded that incline pressing worked the clavicular head of your pecs, the very idea was considered foolish; study-dependent coaches maintained that muscles fibers run the entire length from origin to insertion and are activated by single nerves, and, as a result, it was not possible to preferentially recruit specific areas. Of course, that is possible, as every bodybuilder in history has known.

And now, research is clearly showing that some coaches and scientists owe those bodybuilders an apology. In a review paper written years ago, Dr. Jose Antonio began to dispel the misconceptions and demonstrated clearly that you could target areas of specific muscles.

In the time since that paper was published, much more research has emerged, substantiating Antonio’s position, and this is finally working its way into the public eye of the fitness industry, thanks in no small part to a group of fantastic coaches who are doing their best to get the information out there.

One such coach is Bret Contreras, who regularly produces scientific rationalization that explain the best training methods. In a past presentation, Bret said,

“It is now readily apparent in the literature that all muscle groups…contain functional subdivisions which are preferentially activated during different movements…recent research has showed that altering body position such as foot placement …can target different areas of muscles. Bodybuilders were right all along; it just took research some time to catch up to their wisdom. “

Contreras’s assertion makes clear the fact that part of being a scientist is considering all information with a critical but open mind. Just as importantly, before dismissing ideas as true or false, it’s necessary to first evaluate if certain concepts have been proven inaccurate or simply dismissed for lack of evidence. After all, science and research is the basis of determining what to do for diet and training, but you shouldn’t ignore results or blindly deny the validity of what works just because it hasn’t been tested.

That said, being able to target individual muscle–or even different portions of muscles–is not the same as targeted fat loss. Specifically, doing crunches to shrink your stomach won’t melt belly fat and more than doing neck crunches will remove excess skin on your face.

Why? Sohee Lee, a health coach and founder of Sohee Fit, provides a scientific and practical look at why you lose fat from different body parts, and if there’s anything you can do to help with faster fat loss.

Belly Fat and Big Thighs: The Role of Gender and Genetics

Women, in general, tend to have higher levels of body fat than do men (Nielsen et al., 2004). As well, women tend to store body fat in the lower body in the form of peripheral subcutaneous, whereas men tend to store body fat in the abdominal region in the form of visceral fat (Nielsen et al., 2004). This gives women more of a pear shape and men more of an apple shape.

Additionally, when body fat is lost, women lose more femoral FM (Mauriege et al., 1999) while men lose more abdominal fat (Farnsworth et al., 2003), highlighting a sex discrepancy when it comes to regional fat loss (though this goes against my experience working with hundreds of female clients who typically lose body fat in their upper bodies first and lower bodies last, but I digress). The physiological mechanisms behind this phenomenon are not fully understood at this point.

 

But here’s something that helps clear up the picture: genetics.

I understand that genetics can be a soft spot for many (Okay, I totally did not intend for that to be a pun, but now I see how accidentally clever that was, so I’m sticking with it. Please don’t click away?). I think it’s worth taking some time to at least touch on the topic, though.

Where’d I get my body from?

I got it from my momma.

Kind of. But also from years and years of dedicated strength training and proper nutrition. It doesn’t sound quite as sexy to say that, though, does it?

Bouchard found that the degree of truncal-abdominal subcutaneous fat is determined by a genetic effect of 30% (1993), and Perusse et al. attribute 42% to 56% for subcutaneous fat and abdominal visceral fat, respectively, to heritability.

And of course, there a number of other factors as well that contribute to regional bodyfat distribution, including hormones, exercise, diet, and more.

 

All of this to say that yes, genetics do play a role in where an individual stores fat on his or her body, and it also appears to largely determine where we lose body fat first and last from (and conversely, where we gain body fat). But it should by no means be used as a scapegoat. [After all, there’s plenty of real life evidence that you can overcome bad genetics.]

“My body looks like this because of my genetics, and there’s nothing I can do about it!” is a poor excuse (and an incorrect one, at that). There’s still a lot that can be done via behavioral intervention to change your physique.

The Illusion of Spot Reduction

Spot enhancement, or physique enhancement, is when you change the shape of your body by building muscle in specific areas. Weightlifters should be very familiar with this concept.

Because unlike body fat, muscle is site-specific (Wakahara et al., 2013).

For example, if you want to give off the illusion of having a smaller waist, then build wider lats by performing more lat-specific movements. If you want rounder, firmer, and/or more muscular glutes, then it would be in your best interest to perform exercises that target the glutes, such as hip thrusts, lunges, Bulgarian split squats, seated abductions, and glute kickbacks.

(Please note that I’m not saying that you should stick exclusively to bodypart splits or strictly to isolation movements. I actually tend to prefer full body or upper/lower splits for most people, though there is certainly a time and a place for other kinds of training programs as well.)

The cool thing about building more muscle all over is that having more muscle mass can actually give off the appearance of looking leaner overall. This applies to women as well, so ladies, don’t be afraid to build muscle. As long as you keep your nutrition in check (and we’ll cover that below), you will not look bulky.

Finally, it’s important not to overlook the three main mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy: mechanical stress, metabolic stress, and muscle damage.

Two Squat Cues That Pretty Much Work For Everyone

I guess before we dive into the cues it may be cogent, first, to discuss what the squat is…especially for those reading who may be hearing/learning about this for the first time.

Squat – noun [skwot]

1) A weightlifting exercise in which a person squats and then returns to an erect position while holding a barbell at the back of the shoulders.1

2) A place occupied by squatters. Not to be confused as a place occupied by people literallysquatting – like a gym, or a really cool house filled with squat racks – but rather, a place where a person settles on a land or occupies property without title, right, or payment of rent. Basically, an a-hole.

3) Nautical. The tendency of a vessel to draw more water astern when in motion than when stationary. Huh, I never knew that!

4) Slang. As in, “you don’t know jack squat about squats.”

For the sake of this post, however, we’re going to stick with example #1. I.e., this:

What Is a Squat?

Squats were invented by bears (citation needed), and have long been a staple in weightlifting, strength and conditioning, and powerlifting circles for years and years and years. There’s a reason why most (if not all) successful training programs include squats. They work!

You’d be hard pressed to convince me otherwise that the squat isn’t THE king exercise (definitely top 3) out there that plays a role in helping to increase strength, increase muscle hypertrophy, as well as helping to improve athletic performance. Too, I’d make the case that the squat, when performed correctly to fit one’s unique anatomy, anthropometry, and goals, is one of the best exercises to help “bulletproof” the body and to help offset many of the postural imbalances many people accumulate on a day-t0-day basis from sitting at a desk all day.

Unless you work at the coolest place ever, like in the pic above. Or in space.

Think about what’s required and “needed” in order to perform an acceptable squat (and hit acceptable depth):

Depth (via Mark Rippetoe in Starting Strength) = anterior (front) surface of the thighs dips below knee level.

To help elucidate my point (regarding depth) lets use the ol’ tried and tested Mike Boyle method of coaching. The this-not this-this method.

Of course many people can hit appropriate depth yet still have all sorts of things go awry.

  • Too much knee valgus (or in some cases, varus).
  • Too much rounding of the upper back (spinal flexion for the snobs out there).
  • Face planting the floor.

Also, we have to be cognizant of any pre-existing injuries or anatomical limitations that may prevent someone from getting to depth in the first place.

Without getting too deep into the biomechanics – if that’s your bag I’d suggest Starting Strengthor heading over to Bret Contreras’ blog – lets just all agree (I hope) that there’s a degree of ample t-spine extension, shoulder external rotation, scapular posterior tilt, core stability, hip/knee flexion, adductor extensibility, ankle dorsiflexion, and attitude required to perform a good or “passable” squat.

Likewise, while this topic could easily spin into a I’m right/you’re wrong/my way of squatting is the only way to squat everyone, ever diatribe….I want to do my best to avoid the mental gymnastics involved with that. But mostly because it’s dumb.

A case can be made for low bar vs. high bar, wide-stance vs. narrow(er) stance, hands wide vs. hands close, arched back vs. “canister” position for the ribs, and zombies vs. vampires. Everybody is different and different shit is different.

Moreover we could also make arguments for foot flare, shin angle relative to the floor, torso angle, head-neck positioning, and where the eyes are pointing.

A good coach will always place what’s best for the athlete/client before defaulting to his or her’s personal biases with any one way of performing a lift.

With that out of the way…..

What Is Not a Squat?

To steal a train of thought from one of my new favorite books, Guys Can Be Cat Ladies Too, I feel it’s important to take things a step further and discuss what is not a squat.

Not a squat – noun [nat] [a] [skwot]

1) Anything that is not a squat.

2) A deadlift, a person, a cheese sandwich, a Ford Focus, a Blu-ray player, a baseball, a picture frame — none of these things is a squat.

3) Anything else that is not a squat.

I think that’s settled.

Lets Get To Those Cues

As much as my job revolves around improving the performance of the athletes and clients I work with (Example: lets squat a shit-ton of weight), it’s equally important that I play the role of educator and extinguisher of bad habits.

Read: I fix stuff and make it look better.

It’s not that hard to look at someone’s squat and think to yourself:

A) Does that look good?

or

B) My eyes! MY EYES! MAKE IT STOP!!!!

Step #1, oftentimes, is to put on the brakes and clean up someone’s technique before we begin to worry about increasing load or hitting some kind of tangible number.

What follows are cues that have worked for ME and the clients/athletes I’ve worked with in the past (and present). I am in no insinuating that they’re cemented as “all encompassing,” (for all I know I may very well change my approach next week), but I do feel they bode well for most people looking to hone their squat technique.

What’s more, I also find that if I’m able to get someone to “buy” into these cues that a lot of other things tend to take care of themselves without me even addressing them. Kinda cool.

1) Point Belt Buckle Towards Chin

Admittedly, this is the one cue I may get the most flack for and one which may make people shit a weight belt and un-friend me on social media…but whatevs.

Paying meticulous attention to the set-up is going to make or break your squat. More to the point, paying meticulous attention to getting and MAINTAINING tension is going to make or break your squat.

Getting people to appreciate the importance of a “canister” position with their torso and relying less on an aggressive lumbar arch is, in my opinion, crucial.

You’ll notice how there’s an aggressive rib flair in tangent with an aggressive lumbar arch. In PRI (Postural Restoration Institute) circles this is called a “scissor position,” where the two are pointing in opposite directions.

This is not a stable position to be in (and, honestly, open’s up a box of other issues that may need to be dealt with down the road with regards to extension based back pain, Spondy, etc).

Ironically, for the majority of trainees/coaches who adopt this approach – and I used to be one of them – when someone inevitably begins to fall forward on the descent or out of the hole the cue always used is to “arch, chest up, arch, chest up, ARCH.”

Which just feeds into the problem. They’re not stable to begin with!

Now, I am not implying not to arch (nor am I implying not to keep the chest up) The lumbar spine has a natural lordotic curve to it, and I’d prefer to maintain that. All I am saying is that it often works in people’s favor to not OVERarch, cue them to posteriorly tilt the pelvis (belt buckle to chin), and then lock the rib cage down to help maintain anatomical neutral throughout their set.

If I can get someone to accomplish this out of the gate, it’ll make a lot of other things fall into place.

 

2) Rip the Floor Apart

Whether you’re a wide-stance squatter or narrow-stance squatter the cue to “rip the floor apart” applies.

Why?

Truth be told: it lends itself to a better and more efficient bracing strategy, which in turn helps with the whole “getting and maintaining” tension thing.

Not only does it help clean up technique for those who are hyper-mobile or lack motor control with their squat2, but it’s also a nice way to address that annoying “butt wink” or tuck under many people exhibit as they go into deep(er) hip flexion.

Cueing someone to “rip the floor apart” and to gain more external rotation torque in the hips is generally a good strategy for most.

Another way to cue people and get the same effect is to say “spread your sit muscles apart,” which is one I stole from Todd Bumgardner. This way people understand that they should be feeling tension in the hips.

Get To Stepping – 2 Stair Set Workouts For Conditioning

You don’t need any expensive equipment, open space, or even great weather to get in an effective conditioning workout. In fact, you can get it done in your own home, apartment, or hotel. All you need is a set of stairs!

I’m all about a minimalist approach to fitness, and using what’s available in your area to your advantage is a part of that approach. Just about every single home will have a set of stairs, why not use those to your advantage? You’re not always going to have access to a gym, a track, or equipment. By learning how to use the stairs as a conditioning tool, you’ll be eliminating any of those excuses.

I’ve been using stair sets for years with clients to elicit outstanding results, and today I’m going to share two of them with you! The methods I’m going to share with you today are not the only way to use stairs for conditioning, they’re just a few of the ways I have used them.

Yes, I know about stair sprints, and so does everyone else! We’ve all seen Rocky … so I’m not including them in this.

The purpose of this post is to get your mind open to the idea of using your stairs for effective conditioning. This way, you’ll be able to get in a quality conditioning workout anywhere in the world. Let’s take a look at a few different workouts I enjoy.

Fast Feet


It’s called fast feet for a reason! This workout is a simple conditioning workout that only involves the use of one step. It’s easy, and I often use it with new trainees due to the low difficultly level. That doesn’t mean it’s not suitable for the experienced trainee! It’s going to rev your heart rate up no matter who you are. I enjoy using this after a strength training workout as a finisher.

How it’s done …

– Step up on to the first step, then step down.
– Repeat this as quickly as possible for 20 seconds
– Rest for 10 seconds
– Repeat this 8x
– Each round alternate the foot your using to step up

The goal is to step up and down as fast as you can, and I do mean FAST! Then rest for 10 seconds before repeating. If you have a railing to hold onto during this workout DO IT! If you slip while you’re taking a step it will help prevent you from falling on your face!

Variations …

– 30 seconds of work/30 seconds 4-8x



The Pilgrimage To Pai Mei’s

In old Kung Fu movies, and the Kill Bill series, Pai Mei was a cruel kung fu master who lived on the top of a tall mountain. The only way to make it to Pai Mei, was to walk up a massive stair set … only to get your ass kicked at the top. This workout is a much slower form of conditioning, but it’s fantastic and basic. I use a stair well for this workout, but home stairs will due as well! Longer stair sets (10 – 20) are best, but short sets can work as well. It’s going to be a grind, but if done correctly it will have you breathing hard in a short amount of time.

How it’s done …

– You’ll start at the bottom of the stairs
– Walk with purpose, full extension of the knee and hip at the top of each step, squeezing the glutes
– Once you reach the top of the flight of stairs, perform 5-10 face the wall squats (posture squats) at a pace of 4 seconds down, 4 seconds up
– Walk up the next flight of stairs (or if at home, walk down the stairs briskly and then back up them with purpose)
– Reach the top of that flight of stairs and perform 5-10 face the wall squats
– Repeat this sequence over and over for 10-20 mins without stopping

This can be done with a smaller set of steps (5-6 steps) but I would suggest walking up them, back down, then back up, before performing the squats. This could also be done with step as well, step up and then back down on the one step 10 – 20 times before performing your squats. You could also vary the exercises, you don’t need to only perform squats. Push ups, chin ups, and lunges, would also be suitable.

Variations …

– Add a weight vest
– Use a resistance band for added weight during squats

Coconut Explained

Coconut is all the rage right now.  But ever wonder what the difference is between water, milk, oil, the cream????

I’m here to help!  I put together this little guide to help explain all the different parts and names of coconut!

First up. Coconut water.  When you pick up a fresh coconut and shake it around, you can hear the liquid sloshing around?  That is the coconut water my friend.  Get a hammer and a nail, punch a hole in the coconut, and grab a straw!

Coconut milk.  Normally sold in can, stir it into recipes like curries, soups, or stews for richness. You can also find coconut milk refrigerated in a carton, but all that stuff is is watered coconut milk with added flavorings and preservatives.  If you want to drink coconut milk I would suggest buying the canned stuff and watering it down yourself and adding some vanilla and stevia to taste.

Coconut oil.  This oil is a solid at room temperature, unless you live in Southern CA like I do and had a crazy hot summer which kept my coconut oil at liquid at room temp for much of it.  You can substitute it for any kind of oil while cooking and even swap it out for oil or butter when baking.

Fresh coconut.  This is probably the least utilized of the coconut products, because they are so much work to eat.  If you do buy a fresh coconut, be sure to save the water first.  Then separate the white meat from the hard brown shell and eat as is.  Or you can take the meat, add it to a blender with some water and make your own coconut milk.

Shredded coconut. I used to have to hunt down the unsweetened shredded coconut, but now by local grocery store carries it!  Stir into baked goods, homemade granola, or use it to crust fish or chicken instead of bread crumbs.

Last but not least, coconut cream.  Made from simmering coconut milk and scooping the cream that raises to the top off. Use it in baked good, to make pina coladas, and in any curry type dish. Don’t get coconut cream confused with cream of coconut though.  Cream of coconut is like sweetened condensed milk.  Coconut cream thickened up even more with sugar added.

There you have it folks!  Hope this little guide explains some of the different uses of coconut for you!

A better Way To Perform Circuit Training

I have a few rules in life. They range from “never be greedy” to “always take a glance at a dessert menu to make sure you’re not passing on something amazing.”

For the most part, I don’t violate my rules, although sometimes I bend a little. I used to have a rule along the lines of, “don’t trust a trainer who has nicer gym clothes than you have suits.”

That was until I met the sultan of swagger, Rob Sulaver, founder and CEO of Bandana Training. Rob is the kind of guy who might train in a cardigan (rumors that I have yet to confirm), but he’s also built a reputation as one of the better young strength coaches.

It’s rare that you’ll find trainers spending as much time on investing in learning from other trainers as they do building their business. But that’s Rob.

I recently asked him to provide an overview of his approach to metabolic conditioning and strength training, which was a big part of his most recent program, The Super Villain Workout.

Here’s what you can learn about taking your intensity and metabolic workouts to the next level. -AB

A BETTER WAY TO CIRCUIT TRAIN

By: Rob Sulaver of Bandana Training

Most of us have heard of circuit training, which in the simplest sense is a series of exercises done in sequence one-after-the-other with little to no break in between. It’s beautiful. It’s heart-pounding. It’s time-efficient. And it’s incredibly effective.

The biggest problem isn’t with the workouts. It’s trying to adapt them to your gym.

You know the feeling, you try to plan and prepare for your incredible workout, only to roll up to your gym at 6:00pm on a Tuesday and realize that the rest of the universe also decided to crash the party.

Training at 10:30 am? No problem. At high time, good luck trying to commandeer 5 pieces of equipment. Not to mention, most gyms aren’t always designed with circuit training in mind. If the leg press is 2 floors away from the seated row machine, a circuit with the two becomes a vision quest.

Enter complexes.

Complexes are a specific type of circuit training that utilizes one piece of equipment. So simple, right?

So, a dumbbell complex is a series of dumbbell exercises done in sequence, one-after-the-other with little to no break in between.

The best part: you only need one piece of equipment, so you eliminate most of the common hurdles of circuit training. Plus, they’re excellent for a home gym where space is often limited.

Complexes: Why They’re So Effective

The real genius of complexes is trapped in the science. This is an issue of  local vs. systemic fatigue. And understanding the difference could make the game-changer that allows you to start seeing more results from your weekly sweat-fest.

When you do bicep curls, you fatigue your biceps. Even if you push to the extreme, the limiting factor is your bicep.

There are many influences that play into your inability to do another bicep curl, but one of primary concerns is your body’s ability to create energy to keep your muscles working.

[For the science nerds: Lactic acid decreases the pH of our muscle, which inhibits our cells ability to produce energy. Hydrogen ions inhibit calcium binding to troponin (1) and interfere with cross-bridge formation (1).

What the hell does that mean? It means our muscles have less energy and can produce less force which means no more bicep curl. sad face]

Let’s take a breath, put down the physiology studies, and zoom out. To the bench press.

If you were to immediately move on to fatigue your chest, again the limiting factors is your chest.

But once that happens, then you could move on to your lats and glutes, then your quads, and finally your core.

See what’s happening? You end up accumulating all of this local fatigue, from each individual muscle group, which challenges your entire system. While each area becomes fatigued, linked them together builds a systemic process designed for progression and transformation. The workout has become greater than the sum of its parts.

But like anything else, there’s a smart way to program complexes and a dumb way to program them.

How to Design A Workout Complex

Let’s paint in broad strokes, so that you have as much flexibility as needed to build your workout.

  1. Generally speaking, you want the exercises to progress from most neurologically demanding to least. For instance, don’t do biceps curls before squats. As you progress through a complex, you accumulate fatigue. No sense doing the hardest exercise when you’re the most fatigued.
  2. Safety is worth considering. This is the “don’t-be-an-idiot” clause. You probably don’t want to do a heavy overhead squat as the last exercise in your complex.
  3. The workout should flow. What does this mean? Think about movement patterns. Progressing from a deadlift-to-high pull-to front squat-to overhead press not only works different muscles, but also links up the movements without having to drastically change body positions. This reduces your rest time and makes the complex as efficient as possible.
  4. Varying rep ranges is important in complexes. You can adjust to account for the discrepancy in strength for different exercises. For example, if you have a dumbbell reverse lunge, a dumbbell overhead press, a dumbbell bent-over row, a dumbbell chest press, and a dumbbell bicep curl, the bicep curl is probably going to be your most difficult lift if you use the same weight. (Think about it; you can squat much more than you can curl.) Now you can obviously switch out dumbbells if you’d like, but you can help keep the weights heavy by adjusting your reps. For example, you might do 10 reverse lunges per side, but only 5 bicep curls.
  5. Complexes are not an excuse for poor form. Actually, nothing is an excuse for poor form.

When designing complexes, the only other factor to consider is exercise selection. If you’re doing full-body workouts, even if you’re only pushing hard for 20 minutes, you’ll want to be mindful to not train too many days consecutively. The effectiveness of circuits and complexes are linked to the intensity. So if you can’t train at the highest intensity, then even the best workout design won’t be as effective.

Benefits Of pull-ups!

Pull-ups are one of my all-time favorite exercises! A devastating upper-body compound movement which works a number of larger muscle groups at the same time (back, shoulders, & arms), and personally speaking, gets my heart-rate racing! I like to think it’s the torso-equivalent of squats, which are an epic lower-body compound builder! There are a range of options, from ‘Wide Grip’ for more Lat targeting, ‘Narrow Grip’ for greater bicep bias, negatives, ‘reverse grip’, assisted… They’re all tough to do, but don’t require expensive machinery and could well be the ultimate bodyweight exercise! Click MORE for the ‘How To’…
GAPGAP
HOW TO?
Aim to hold the bar with an overhand grip with your arms roughly the distance of your shoulders.

1. Start by hanging from the bar.

2. Then slowly start pulling yourself upwards to the end position which is where your chest almost touches the bar. Your chin is then above the bar itself. Often you’ll hear people say ‘chest up’ or ‘open up your chest’. It’s easy to hunch your shoulders in this position so focus instead on bringing your shoulders down and back, and lead with your chest as you pull yourself up.

3. Also avoid arching or swinging your legs back and forth or side to side. It’s better to perform this exercise slowly and in a controlled manner as opposed to ‘jumping up’ relying on momentum, with technique suffering as a result.

4. Finally, slowly lower yourself to the initial starting position, and repeat to failure.

GAP
FORM NOTES: 
– I tend to bend my knees. It’s a personal comfort thing!
– Also try not to relax or wait at the starting position as your muscles will relax and feel like their getting a stretch as opposed to working out! It’s also tiring for the shoulder.
– I love using the straps pictured below as I feel it relieves some of the strain on my grip. My forearms aren’t super strong and they tend to fatigue quite quickly. By using the straps, it gives my arms a bit of a break, so that I can isolate my back and shoulder more.

 

VARIATIONS ON THE THEME ???

Wide-Grip Pull-ups
Are as the name suggests it’s a wider variation of the original pull ups. These emphasize working out the latissimus dorsi more. The original narrower ones work your biceps primarily.

Close Grip Pull-ups
This variation of pull-ups will emphasizes your lower lats more. Same as above overhand grip, slow and controlled throughout, but with this one your hands are fairly close together.

Starting off…
If you find that you can’t yet pull your own weight, there are a bunch of different options…
– Lat pulldowns are, in a sense the same exercise, but reversed (and you’re seated). Your pulling the weight down towards you and engaging the same muscle groups. It doesn’t have the same ultimately fatiguing impact, but it’s a great start.
– The variations of Pulldowns are similar to the variations of Pull-ups, with grip width and overhand/underhand positioning.

Negatives
Get a box below. Jump up and work on lowering yourself down as slowly as possible! Amazingly fatiguing stuff…

Partner up!!
Best way to learn to swim? Practice swimming! It’s kinda the same here. You can include elastic bands straps etc or you can practice with a partner. Bend your knees and push against/his her thigh as you pull yourself up. Really focus on lowering yourself slowly. You’ll soon find that you can dispatch one unassisted, then 3, then 5, and maybe even 10! (NB My own pull up is still not perfect – I’m working on it!)

Regular Sleep Helps Us Exercise Better

Research Shows Sleep Has An Immediate And Significant Effect On Exercise

In a very impactful study at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, researchers investigated the bi-directional relationship between sleep and exercise. This study is fascinating because it did not just study the effects of exercise on sleep, but also the effects of sleep on exercise.

It concluded that exercise did not appear to have an immediate impact on sleep but showed that sleep did have an immediate — and significant — effect on exercise. The subjects had shorter exercise sessions after nights when they slept poorly. This relationship of poor sleep to diminished exercise was strongest among subjects whose sleep was the most challenged at the beginning of the study period.

Adaptive Sleep Technology Provides Additional Support

If you don’t do yoga or other stretches to ease the tension that can be absorbed by your body during your exercise routine, adaptive sleep technology can help. It features a firm yet yielding surface that provides the correct degree of support. It also includes a passive-massage layer to provide additional support and a gentle massage effect. It also:

• Eliminates high-stress pressure points.

• Promotes better circulation.

• Reduces tossing and turning.

• Provides a sleep environment more conducive to relaxing, restorative deep sleep.

Optimising Different Factors For Each Individual

An adaptive sleep environment optimizes each of these different factors for each individual, even if they share a bed with a partner who might have significantly different requirements at any one time.

Creating Your Personal Sleep Revolution

Creating a healthier, happier life doesn’t need to be complicated. By simply incorporating an adaptive sleep system, my recommended choice is the Kenko Naturest Sleep System, into our bed and adding the sleep tips suggested in my first and previous articles, we will begin to create our personal revolution that will change our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.

Are You An Athlete Or An Exerciser?

Before you even say it, no, the title isn’t a jab at CrossFitters. This has nothing to do with what sport or activity you choose to pursue, only how you pursue it. It could be CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting or golf.
With the proliferation of information and exposure to different training methodologies on the internet that we’ve seen in the last couple years in particular, the lines between athletes and exercisers is often blurred or forgotten (or not even understood to exist).
So what makes you an athlete, and what makes you an exerciser? If you compete, you must be an athlete, right? But what if you train twice weekly and do a local weightlifting meet or a CrossFit competition in your gym twice a year? I don’t think competing is the defining characteristic of an athlete, although I do think it’s an important element. What matters is how you manage training within life and your mindset and intentions.
Why does it matter which you are? Because even if both athletes and exercisers do many of the same things, HOW they do them is often different, and without knowing which you are, you may be going about your business in a way that’s not ideal. Keep in mind as you read that these labels are not value judgments—exercisers aren’t bad people or inferior to athletes, they simply have different priorities and goals. The point of the article is to help you determine how to do what you’re doing in the best possible way.
Schedule
An athlete builds the rest of his or her life around training and competition; an exerciser fits training in around the rest of his or her life. Obviously there is a gradient here, not just polar opposites. Weightlifting is a good example of this—except the handful at the Olympic training center, weightlifters have to worry about jobs and find ways to balance them with their training, but work is secondary to training and competition for the athlete rather than primary as it is for the exerciser. But if you believe yourself to be an athlete (or want to be), training, recovery and competition need to be your first priorities, not considerations you make after everything else in your life is already settled.
Purpose & Goals
An athlete’s purpose and goals are entirely performance-oriented. Their training is geared toward reaching certain performance goals such as weights, times or scores. There isn’t direct work for appearance or health; this doesn’t mean athletes don’t value these things, but it does mean they’re incidental to the real purpose of training. Exercisers may have performance goals, but there is more of a concern for health, fitness and likely appearance. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course—who thinks being healthy is a stupid goal?—but the mindset is totally different. This will also factor in to other elements, such as expectations for pain and injury and the way those things are managed (see below). Determine what your priorities are—are you willing to set everything else aside in order to achieve a performance goal, or is something like long term health or your appearance important enough to you that you need to modify the performance-oriented parts of your training to accommodate these other goals?
Progress & Ability
An exerciser shouldn’t expect to make progress at the same rate as an athlete, and should expect his or her ultimate ability to never reach the same level as his or her athlete counterpart. This is really just the product of the time and effort differential. An athlete training 20 or more hours/week whose lifestyle is conducive to that training and the recovery there from will be able to accomplish more than the exerciser who squeezes an hour or so of training in a few days each week when work, family and vacation schedules happen to allow. Some of you exercisers may actually have more potential than some of you athletes, but you won’t reach it if it isn’t a priority for you and you don’t do what’s needed to.
Pain, Injuries & Treatment
Anyone who does anything physical at some point will experience pain and at least minor injuries. Generally athletes will experience pain and injury more frequently and of a greater degree, but serious injury among exercisers seems to be more common these days.
Personally, I believe exercisers should expect to stay healthier than athletes, although among a seemingly growing population in the CrossFit community, this mindset is changing—that is, non-competitive individuals who train only for recreation, fun and/or health/fitness are accepting serious and regular injury as part of their training more and more. I don’t think this represents the majority by any means, but it’s definitely more than it was a few years ago.
Athletes are willing to risk injury and cope with pain more in order to reach their performance goals, and this is much more reasonable and rational than an exerciser doing the same. If your goals are to be healthy, fit and reasonably physically attractive, slings, surgeries and limps don’t make a lot of sense. If you’re an athlete, you want to avoid these things also, but not because they’re unhealthy, because they slow you down from reaching your performance goals. And when injuries do occur, athletes will manage them differently than exercisers.
For an exerciser, managing an injury is about truly healing and preventing any further damage—it’s a long-term perspective that includes considerations like whether or not they’ll be able to chase their grandkids around or get on and off the toilet without assistance. For an athlete, managing an injury is more about getting back to training as quickly as possible with as little loss of progress as possible—the perspective is more immediate, with considerations focused more on competition performances and the training leading up to them than how their knees might feel in twenty years if they continue to push this hard.
Things like ice and drugs come into play here. In my opinion, the exerciser should make it a goal to use anti-inflammatories as little as possible. First, as I mentioned earlier, it doesn’t make sense to be driving so hard that you find yourself in need of them on any regular basis. Second, if health is a primary concern, don’t subject your body to the effects of drugs. If something is hurting, take care of the source of the problem, heal it up and don’t repeat it. You have the option to do this in the most thorough way and not have to be in a big rush.
Athletes, on the other hand, often will have to manage pain and injuries in ways that are not the healthiest but can get them back to training faster or keep them training through a problem well enough to get them through an upcoming competition. In these cases, the healing part is deferred in a sense, and coping is the goal. This is where anti-inflammatories in often large doses and icing for inflammation and pain reduction for the purpose of continued training make sense—you do what you need to do to get through the injury temporarily, and then take care of it the right way when your competition and training schedule allows it.
Where Do You Fall on the Spectrum?
Figure out where you fall on the spectrum of athlete to exerciser. Clearly understand your purpose and your priorities. Once you do, you’ll be able to make smart choices and train, recover and think in the way that best supports your goals.

How To Fit Exercise Into Your Routine — No Matter How Busy You Are

We all know by now that maintaining an active lifestyle should be one of our top priorities in life. Only by taking care of ourselves do we stand a chance of being the kind of person we strive to be on the job, at home with our loved ones, and in our communities. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

Work, in particular, can get in the way of working out—in fact, there is a big paradox going on, and it becomes more obvious the more challenging (and exciting!) a job gets: On one hand, we struggle to find time to work out; on the other, we can’t afford to not exercise because it is integral to sustained success.

My co-author and I sought to get to the heart of this paradox—and figure out how to beat it—when we wrote Winning Without Losing: 66 Strategies for Building a Wildly Successful Business While Living a Happy and Balanced Life. We interviewed 25 high-powered workers from around the world who somehow manage to exemplify healthy work-life balance. Based on these interviews, we’ve put together six tips for how to fit exercise into your daily routine—no matter how busy you are with work.

How to Stay Fit Despite a Demanding Job

1. Work Out Efficiently
Pick a workout form that you can do almost anywhere, whether you’re traveling or getting home from the office late. Ideally, this will be a form of exercise that doesn’t require much preparation (maybe save the wind surfing for the weekend) and that accomplishes significant physical gains in a short period of time (sorry, golfers). High-intensity interval training, Tabata training, bodyweight exercises, and running are all great choices.

2. Cater to Your Own Likes and Dislikes
By now you might be thinking, “I hate running!” (or Tabata, or what have you)—and that’s okay. We each need to be realistic and to know ourselves. One person’s running is another person’s yoga, weight training, or dance. Flexing your self-discipline muscles is often necessary when it comes to exercise, but make it easier on yourself by choosing a form of exercise that fits your lifestyle, personality, and taste. Not sure what you love to do? Don’t be afraid to experiment with different forms of exercise until you find what works best for you.

3. Use Competitions as Motivation
When it comes to being successful at work, collaboration is key. But when we’re trying to motivate ourselves to exercise on a regular basis (and with enough intensity for it to really matter), competition has its merits. Today, it’s possible to find a competition suitable to your skill level in almost any sport. Whether you’re elite, beginner, or somewhere in between, there’s something for all of us. Sign up, set a goal, and notice what it does to you—odds are good it might be the push you need to keep yourself in the game.

4. Make a Schedule and Commit to It
One of the most cited reasons to skip a workout goes something like this: “I am just too busy at work today; I can’t make my yoga class.” I call BS! If you unexpectedly had to pick up your child from school and had no back-up plan, how would you deal with the situation? Cancel an internal meeting? Take some work home with you? Do some hard prioritizing? The truth is that when we really need to, we get out of the office at the time that is necessary. Make a schedule (write it down if it helps!), stick to it, and remind yourself that working out is a priority worth keeping.

5. Track Your Activity Levels
“If you don’t measure it, it doesn’t exist”. It’s a slight exaggeration, yes, but this old saying really has some truth to it, especially when it comes to exercise. Make a note in your calendar every time you work out, and add up your workout sessions at the end of each week, month, and year so you can monitor your progress and identify areas for improvement. Measuring your activity levels (and ideally keeping notes on your progress) can help you to stay on track and realize when you’re slipping before you’ve completely lost the habit.

6. Choose Something Over Nothing
You don’t need an hour—or even 30 minutes—to get a complete, effective workout. And some exercises is virtually always better than none. Heck, even seven minutes can make a difference! We can always find a few free minutes in our day (yes, we can!). With an effective program, and done frequently enough, short and speedy workouts can do wonders to both the body and mind. Squeeze in fitness wherever you are and no matter how much time you have with bodyweight exercises or with the help of apps with pre-programmed short workouts—you can even do some exercises at your desk!

A starter’s Guide To Cardio Kickboxing Classes.

There isn’t a standard exercise helpful to ready your system for your Kickboxing fight. There’s lots of exercises and combinations that can be used and every one of them serves a particular function. The truth is, it could be slightly a hardship on just starting out to pick a Kickboxing conditioning program which is ideal to his requirements. However to provide a perception, we will be listing examples of the typical Kickboxing conditioning exercises accompanied by popular Kickboxing fighters.

One of several popular body conditioning routine is sprinting. Professionals are convinced that sprinting is probably the simplest way to simulate the Kickboxing training without the need of actually performing it. Sprinting builds fantastic power in the leg concurrently strengthens the cardiovascular. Besides sprinting, you can also execute jumping rope exercises, running, weightlifting, legups, deadlift and power clean.

You progress multiple core groups of muscles as you take part in kickboxing. This provides a complete full workout. Kickboxing also assits you release a endorphins, enhancing your positivity and mood states. If you are interested in a means to enhance your confidence levels and also you want to figure out how to defend yourself, kickboxing is the ideal option. Apart from improved coordination and better reflexes, kickboxing helps as well one to increase your mental concentration and focus. Should you be looking for the way of burning calories and rev up your metabolic process, kickboxing is the best option. Certain research has found that people burns up up to 800 calories in one-hour kickboxing session. Kickboxing also improves your cardiovascular health.

Kickboxing conditioning will not end with building your general bodily fitness. There is also to handle several combat sport conditioning in which you actually simulate those things connected with Kickboxing fights. This could be as shadowboxing, heavy bag and Thai pad exercises. Shadow boxing is often a strongly recommended routine given it practices your striking strategies while building your vigor. So it’s just like a two-in-1 conditioning exercise. An additional routine you may even carry out may be the heavy bag exercise. This specific routine conditions your wrists and fists in showing up in opponent. It also boosts your resistance because you will be striking a bulkier target. Finally, it’s also possible to consider Thai pad exercises. This exercise increases your accuracy in striking. Keep in mind, when you’re in the fight, you wouldn’t just strike in some places. You need to hit the other guy. And that’s what Thai pad exercises are for.

Kickboxing requires a good amount of efforts and self-discipline. Kickboxing is not for idle fighters. While I often say, Kickboxing conditioning is simply as crucial as the battle itself. So if you are really going to bag the title, then you need to get quite a lot on Kickboxing conditioning and training because problem of one’s winning possibility is determined by that thoroughly conditioned physique.

7 Ways Strength Training Makes Your Life More Awesome

Most people strength train, or work out in any form, to change how their body looks (i.e. lose fat or build muscle). Building a “better looking body” and improving health are the main benefits people desire when they train.

While that’s certainly true, it’s also short sighted.

But how in the world can strength training help you live a more awesome life? How can what you do in the gym carryover into every other aspect of your life, and improve it?

Here are seven ways …

1) The strength carryover effect. Being physically strong will have a positive effect on other activities, and your entire life.

No matter what sports or recreational activities you participate in, you’ll experience an improvement in your performance. Likewise, daily tasks will become much easier as will playing with your kids and grand children (or your dog if you’re a canine-parent like me). For older adults (a.k.a. Mature Beautiful Badasses) it keeps them living independently and reduces fall risk.

Bottom line: being stronger can only make your life more awesome.

Note: You can “strength train” in numerous ways: with free weights, kettlebells, and evenbodyweight exercises. There’s more than one way to get strong!

2) Increases self-confidence and body-image. How does this allow you to live a more awesome life? We boldly face the world and embrace its limitless opportunities, or at least will be more willing to do so than before.

I’ve experienced this personally and practically with every client I’ve worked with. They start carrying themselves more confidently and start doing things they once thought weren’t practical. They take more chances and put themselves out there more.

When you’re stronger and feel great, you’ll be more confident in your skin.

3) Demolish self-imposed limitations. Strength training has a way of making you realize, Wow. I didn’t know I could do THAT.

Yes. You are stronger than you realize, and strength training will reveal the amazing things your body is capable of doing. You’ll be left wanting more instead of trying to be less (i.e. simply trying to make the number on the scale shrink, trying to “trick yourself” into eating less food, etc).

4) Enhances the “willpower groove.” Several studies have revealed that willpower is, essentially, contagious. When you successfully increase your willpower in one area (doing three strength training workouts per week consistently, for example) that willpower spills over into other areas of your life.

This can explain why people who start exercising regularly also become motivated to get their finances in order, and vice versa. Willpower has been show in research to be just like muscles: you can increase it and make it stronger. Don’t be surprised when you start making “better for you choices” in other areas of your life once you start consistently strength training.

5) Increases your one-trip max. Admit you – you attempt the one-trip max every time you return from the grocery store.

 

You know dang well it would be easier to transfer the groceries in two trips, but you’re stubborn and do it in one. So what if your arms are shaking uncontrollably as you attempt to put the key in the door to unlock it and take an extra 15 seconds of effort to get it in there. At least you did it in a single trip!

Strength training increases your one-trip max. Carry those groceries proudly in a single trip!

6) Gets you asking the question, What else can I do? Strength training increases, and unleashes, your true potential. Relishing this incredible power you’re more likely to examine other areas of your life and take more risks (in a good way).

I’ve seen dozens of women overcome a lifetime of shyness when they get stronger; they’re more confident in social situations. Others find greater confidence to finally ask for a raise at work. Others finally try an activity they always wanted to do. Some even start doing things they once thought weren’t realistic or assumed they “couldn’t” do previously.

7) Helps you focus on what truly matters in life. Well, maybe not at first, but definitely over time.

I’m willing to bet that no person, at the end of their life, was wishing they had dieted harder or made their abs a bit more defined or their glutes perkier.

Yes, loving your body is important … but it’s not THE most important thing.

Take the time to slow down and think about all of the amazing things your body can do. If you’re following some basic principles you should be strong, feel awesome, and building a body that ultimately serves you. Embrace what truly matters: spending time with loved ones and making incredible memories.
