Week of May 6th, 2013

This week we will be going over a specific exercise geared towards developing your chest muscles(s (pectorals major and minor). While also focusing on developing your gross and fine motor skills. This particular exercise at PT we call the, "incline DB press with variation". This particular movement is great for athletes of all kind, while it is working on its primary mover, the chest. It is also developing the shoulders, biceps, triceps, and most of all the wrists. The wrists are a key muscle group often over looked by most trainers. If you are an athlete in which holding/gripping equipment is a necessity (golf, hockey, tennis, lacrosse, etc.) then this exercise comes highly regarded to you from Performance Training! More details and health/fitness tips brought to you by performance Training.....

This week we will take a look at the core and offer a challenging Ab exercise (located at the bottom of this tip). When we hear the word, “core” for the most part we immediately think of the Ab’s and the beach body types. When in fact Abs are just a portion of the “core” muscle group; the core also includes your: Lower back, oblique’s (love-handles), mid & upper back, Glutes (butt), parts of your quads and parts of your shoulders. The core is the portion of our body around the vertebrae. If you think of it like this, I’m sure you will view your core in a much different way as it is much bigger than just the Abs.  And, it is very important to have a well rounded “core” workout/training regimen.  Just like any other part of your body. This particular exercise at PT we call the, “roly poly”. This particular exercise is fun to do while very challenging as well this movement will challenge most of your, “core” muscles previously discussed. Next time you are going to work-out the core mix this in for your crunches! If you are looking to develop and strengthen your core muscles then this exercise comes highly regarded to you from Performance Training!  More details and health/fitness tips brought to you by performance Training.....

This week we will go over the lower body and offer a specific lower body exercise that will hopefully offer some new ideas and challenge you in your health & fitness endeavors.  The lower body is perhaps the most over looked portion of your body when it comes to training in general. I, have heard every excuse in the world, “my legs are already strong”, “I don’t want to have thunder thighs”, “working out my legs hurt”, etc. The funny thing is, your legs are some of the biggest muscles in your body. Training your lower body on a regular basis only promotes a solid health and fitness lifestyle. By training your legs regularly you are naturally creating more creatine, strengthening bone density, naturally producing testosterone, and promoting a health and fitness type of lifestyle. Besides we have all seen the guy at the gym that looks like an upside down pyramid. Massive upper body with chicken legs….Bottom line if you are looking for a healthier lifestyle, beach bod, sports fitness training, etc. Training your lower body will promote all of the above. This particular exercise is known by Performance Training as the, “lunge twist”. This exercise is a great one with multi-functional uses, and can be done anywhere. Give it a try the next time you decide training your lower body. More health and fitness, sports fitness training, and online personal trainer tips on our health and fitness blog!
