Insanity vs P90x

9 Answers | Asked by Jason Davis on Sep 03, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Sep 03, 2012

I kind of agree with LaRue's statement. I do promote 'high intensity exercise' to most everyone that trains with me but I also don't think a pre-structured program is the best way to benefit from it. On there own, P90X and Insanity can be utilized by apparently healthy, athletically inclined persons...

Yoga certification

3 Answers | Asked by Christina Montell on Jul 05, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Aug 31, 2012

It really does depend on the focus of yoga you wish to teach. I wanted to instruct yoga to my clientele and classes as a cool down or flexibility session so I wasn't intent on getting a RYT certification, just an instructors certification. Since then I have instructed large classes and am now lookin...

How do I help my clients do push-ups when they complain that it hurts their wrists?

18 Answers | Asked by Susan Fink on Aug 30, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Aug 30, 2012

I would modify the exercise before I deleted it. The push up is such a staple in human movement I wouldn't want to get rid of it completely. Try having them grip dumbells while they do them so their wrists straighten out more, or elevate their torso on a half/squat/full rack and barbell. Squats, pus...

Hi everyone! I have 2 clients that yawn excessively during exercise. What causes this?

8 Answers | Asked by Christy Belsom on Aug 30, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Aug 30, 2012

I find it to be the bodies cry for oxygen. If you have a pulse oximeter, hook it up to them next time they start with the yawns. I frequently notice a drop in SpO2 when this happens. Nothing to be concerned with in most cases; just be aware when its going on. They may just need a different recovery ...

Insanity Workout Program Review

10 Answers | Asked by IDEA FitnessConnect on Aug 28, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Aug 30, 2012

I have tried Insanity, P90X, the original Crossfit series, and a few other DVD based interval training programs and they all seem to work pretty well for an already conditioned athlete. There in't a consistent monitor for proper form in any of them so, it can be outright dangerous to the average nov...

Should I include static stretches in a dynamic workout?

9 Answers | Asked by Ashley Butterfly on Aug 25, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Aug 28, 2012

I wouldn't go so far as to say SHOULD. COULD definitely, but it wouldn't be necessary. If you do, just be sure it is at the end of the workout.

What is the current trend in fitness industry for 2013? Is it one that is growing, or mature with little potential for growth?

7 Answers | Asked by Camila Gill on Aug 27, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Aug 28, 2012

Combat fitness has been developing in popularity a lot over this year and I only see that trend continuing. This year alone I have incorporated training awareness and readiness, should a combative situation arise, for at least 60% more clients than I did in years past. Last year was a heavy rise in ...

Weight Belts ... Friend or Foe ?

11 Answers | Asked by Chloe Mcinnis on Aug 27, 2012

Answered by Stephen Landrum on Aug 28, 2012

Ah, the weight belt debate. I believe a weight belt (like a bench jacket) is a piece of equipment that has a purpose. I hardly ever see it used properly but the purpose is still there. 1) If you've never injured your back, and you don't wish to, then a weight belt is the right tool for lifting a m...
