Lunge Combination for Effective Workout

Social Share Toolbar

The most effective workouts I believe are high intensity using exercises that work multiple joints at the same time, by involving as many muscles in the shortest time possible, you will burn more calories faster and and gain lean muscle as well. The bread and butter of many a fitness program and one of the best, is the lunge. It targets the quadriceps and the glutes most intensely, but also hits the hamstrings, calves and core, improves lower limb function, and even improves running speed. Another great feature is its back-friendly, because of the need to keep your back straight and…

Are you eating enough protein to build muscle?

When it comes to building muscle, all that work you do in the gym is only half of the battle. The other half takes place in the kitchen. Diet is really important when trying to improve your body composition. Without proper nutrients, no matter how much time you spend weight training, you won’t get the results you’re looking for. Your muscles are made up of over 25% protein along with up to 75% water and stored glycogen (carbohydrates). While people generally understand that consuming adequate protein is very important to support muscle growth and maintain lean mass, the amount of…

Vertimax Trainer

Here I have my client doing some resistance training with Vertimax Trainer. Resistance training will build power and explosiveness in your lower body so you can move quickly. The leg muscles work against the resistance of the bands and every part of both the concentric and eccentric part of the exercise has resistance, resulting in better range of motion strength and more complete stimulation. This activates the fast-twitch muscle fibres in the hamstrings, quads, glutes and core muscles to help you increase your speed, explosive power and balance. Resistance training also will boost stamina, flexibility, range of motion and balance. ‪#‎resistancetraining‬ ‪#‎vertimax‬ ‪#‎explosivepower‬ ‪#‎legmuscles‬ ‪#‎resistance‬‪#‎speed‬ ‪#‎instagram‬ ‪#‎fitness‬ ‪#‎stamina‬ ‪#‎balance‬ ‪#‎gymlife‬ ‪#‎gym‬‪#‎mgmmarbella‬ ‪#‎workout‬ ‪#‎PersonalTrainer‬ ‪#‎training‬ ‪#‎fitlife‬ ‪#‎fitspo‬‪#‎eatclean‬ ‪#‎health‬ ‪#‎fit‬ ‪#‎motivation‬ ‪#‎healthy‬ ‪#‎fitspiration‬ ‪#‎marbella‬ ‪#‎getfit‬‪#‎justdoit‬ ‪#‎gains‬ ‪#‎trainhard‬ ‪#‎fitfam‬

Important Fitness Goals for 2015

Social Share Toolbar

Everyone has different fitness goals, ranging from generally trying to stay active to viewing fitness as a lifestyle. With a New Year comes a lot of new plans and goals and plenty of eagerness to get started. Don’t let your enthusiasm be the only thing that carries you through. Levels of motivation fluctuate like the tides, with steady ups and steady downs. If enthusiasm is the only thing keeping you committed then your likelihood to quit is higher. You need a good plan and a process. If you really want to succeed than it’s important to have fitness goals. These goals will keep…
