After almost a week off and tons of Halloween candies, it’s time to get back on the horse. What better way to get back into the swing of things than going full body and functional.
Gas and Said principles
More major joints, more muscle
Increased impact on metabolism
Reduced risk of injury
What do I have planned? Well I’m looking at plyo pushups, chin-ups, box jumps, jumping jacks, burpees, ball slams, battle ropes and much much more.
You hit the gym 3-5 times a week and you’re feeling good about your progress. Girls are starting to notice you more at the grocery store and your grandmother keeps telling you how massive you are. That’s great and all but are you always walking around in a pair of loose track pants or super long shorts? Don’t forget to pump those legs friend, nothing worse than seeing a super huge guy with tiny stilts for legs. (I’m not addressing women here since you gals never neglect the lower half ) To have truly Herculean legs, you need to keep a few things in mind.
train them as often as your upper half
make sure to hit them from every angle
make sure you’re using proper biomechanics to maximize development
Check back soon as I get into the nitty gritty of biomechanics and proper leg training.
Yours in health,
Getting a decent back work out in is all in the scapular protraction/retraction. To isolate the back, keep those elbows following your rib cage, allow your shoulders to travel and keep your wrists extended. Don’t use your lower back to gain momentum in your movements. Last but not least, train like a beast! 😉
Just finished pumping Chest. Lots of drop sets and lots of reps. Can barely steer my car! A Job well done!
Nothing like static lunges to get the legs nice and pumped!
