Stop, just STOP

With Alan away to Australia and Sharon out of action for a few weeks it has been all hands on deck this past while

Thankfully we will be back to business as normal soon enough

But I always like getting back in and taking a few extra sessions now and again as that's what we get into fitness for

actually training people

and sometimes that can be forgotten about with all the day to day business stuff that goes with it

But something that I have noticed the past few weeks

and spoke to the trainers about

is the fact of people belting out reps on an exercise that actually needs to be slowed down

adding weight when they would be better off going even lighter and doing the thing right

​Stop what you are doing

and think about how you are doing it

If you want to make proper results then you want to build muscle


BUILD MUSCLE <<<<<< Name of the game folks

which scares off a lot of ladies

so they go back to doing such light weight they may as well not be doing it

go back to stupid amounts of Cardio

and live off starvation calories which is no craic at all

until they lose the plot

Jack it in

Have a binge of calories

and off we go on on our vicious cycle AGAIN

You want to build muscle tissue so it strips the fat

and gives you that lean and toned look that everyone goes for

and also gets you trimmed down and improves your health overall

And what's a very important factor in building muscle that everyone forgets?

Is getting TENSION on the muscle

Slow things down and hitting FULL RANGE on your reps with a CHALLENGING weight

Challenging in that it's not so heavy you can't even move the bloody thing or if you do your technique goes to shizzle

but not so light that you could sit there all day doing the exercise and not break a sweat

So what we want on these exercises is for people to SLOW DOWN and do them properly and not just focusing on belting them out 100 miles an hour doing half reps

and then adding more weight for their next set

Jesus wept......

of course all exercises arn't created equal

So you're thinking which exercises do I slow down and which do I speed up on

The easiest way to know?

Just simply listen to your trainer

if they say go light and slow

Then go light and slow

If they tell you to load up the weight and go for it

Then load up the weight and go for it

^^^^^ Probably too complicated & Complex for a lot of people


So pay attention and start this TODAY
