CORE TRAINING

. Did you know it takes quater of a million crunches to strip away a pound of fat from your mid section. Wow! Hardly seems worth the effort right? You here so many do and donts when it come to core training. Here are 3 basic guidelines that governs the core work I and my clients do.

1 REASON YOU ARE NOT GETTING STRONGER

 YOU ARE NOT TAKING ANY 'TIME OFF'- Very good strength programs have a 'overeaching period' to push your body to where it has never been before, followed by lowered training stress to allow your body to recover and get stronger. You cannot hit your PR every training session. I used to be guilty of this. Till i figured out this why i was worn out and injured all the time. Dont make the same mistake.   

STUCK IN A RUT?

 Bored with your training? Stalled progress? Take these 3 tips and bust through your plateau. 1. Instead of reps, do exercise for time. Do had many reps for 30 seconds instead of pumping out your usual 12. 2. Change your exercise order. Do bicep curls before your chin up. Or reverse the order of your training. 3. Use a different tool. Do dumbbell presses instead of barbell. Use a medicine ball for your core training. Use the bike instead of the treadmill. Anything to keep your body guessing.
