For each chest press and shoulder press exercise in your upper body routine, include double the number of rowing and pull-down exercises. And do them first. #jointhealth #posture #mytrainersays
Working small back muscles for better posture? Instead of "x sets of y repetitions", try "x sets of y second holds". Greater muscle tension = improved ability to hold postural form. #mytrainersays
After a week of being sick with a congestive cold from too much air travel, this week I'm ratcheting up my spring workout. Back to my #crossfit hybrid program... a MyTrainerSays version that I always find effective, efficient, and (most important to an aging body) safe.
"Rest does a body good." Particularly as the body ages, taking an occasional week off for rest and recovery allows your muscles and connective joint tissues to restore - which does a lot to keep aches and pains at bay. #mobility #vitality
In the gym, use that time between exercise sets not to sit idle checking your phone, but to stretch the muscles you worked *yesterday* (not the one you're exercising now). 30 sec. set / 30 sec. stretch #effective #efficient #fitness #tips #mytrainersays
Lighter weight. Full extension. #correct
Over the next month I'll be reconfiguring MyTrainerSays.com to offer exercise programs tailored especially for you to download and use for your workouts. Watch this space. #legacyproject
I love watching people exercise. No, LOL, not in a "creepy" way... but in such as way that I get a little insight into their purpose for exercising, their motivation for exercising, and the satisfaction that they obtain from exercising. Technique. Discipline. Understanding. Vitality. #keeponforlife
"V" is for vegetable. It's what "January" should start with. #newyear #eatingplan
Great story about the link between cooking classes for kids (fun!) AND establishing patterns for healthy eating. More to come - but sounds like a great program.
I'm happy to see the wider variety of fitness tactics that members are introducing to their workouts. #endurance #hitt #crossfit #circuits #power #strength
When someone says: "Oh, they're just naturally fit.", I remind them that living today's North American lifestyle, nobody is "naturally fit"... it takes a conscious, intentional effort. #heart #body #mind #mytrainersays
My first suggestion to someone on the gym floor? Reduce the weight of each lift by 30%, and focus on the movement instead - the FULL movement, with FULL range of motion. So many I see are strong in only 50% of a muscle's length. And it shows. #mytrainersays
Best question to ask about your current eating and exercise plans?... "So, how's that workin' for you?" #mytrainersays
If you really wanted to, you would.
