Fountain of youth/muscle magic


myemail.constantcontact.com The proof is in the pudding, in this case the muscle. Strength training is SO important and probably the most underrated aspect of fitness. It doesn’t have the “sweat” appeal of cardio and the instant gratification of drench. Please lift responsibly friends. Keep those muscles under tension on...

[07/13/20]   Our Favorite Strength Training Template! It checks all of the boxes-Total-Body, Functional Training, Complimentary Patterning, It's easy on the joints, etc. 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps/movement and you'll be feeling as good as new :-) Enjoy!
1) Anterior Core ie Rollouts (Hold that posterior pelvic tilt)
2) Posterior Chain ie Trap Bar Deadlift (Keep that spine neutral)
3) Incline Push ie Landmine Press (Brace your abs/elbows in)
4) Incline Pull ie Half-Kneeling Pulldowns (Keep those shoulders out of your ears)
5) Quad Dominant ie Rear Foot Elevated Split Squats (Think quads)
6) Obliques ie One Arm Suitcase Carry (Avoid leaning excessively)


“Cardio” is good and feels great because the sweat faucets turn on instantaneously. However, strength training is by far the best and most efficient use of your time in the gym. Muscles require so much more energy behind the scenes to repair and rebuild themselves. Stay consistent and train with intention and I promise you’ll conquer the world😜💪🏽
