January Workout Game Plan
For the month of January our muscle group pairings will be Back/Shoulders and Chest/Legs. By switching up the muscle group pairings from month to month, we allow ourselves to avoid complacency and plateauing, hence why the first week of each month leaves us so sore! We also place an emphasis on conditioning ourselves to utilize the same amount of weight under longer periods of tension, which will result in quicker we will see our overall ability to increase weight from month to month! In January we will decrease from time under tension ( two exercises per muscle group) and will be moving down to one exercise per muscle group.
New January Exercise/Warmup Additions!
Keeping with our monthly tradition, we will again be adding new exercises and new stretches! Each and every month we will bring something new to our classes, which allows us to add to our extensive library of workout options which means not only do we keep things unique and fresh, but we are able to maximize our workout potential instead of getting caught up in the same thing month in and month out! In the month of January we will be adding two new workout exercises and one new warmup exercise.
Double Dumbbell Arnold Press
- This exercise targets the front and medial delts while also building strength in the core.
RB In / Out plank
- This plyometric exercise engages the chest muscles while also incorporating the medial delts as you press out against the band.
Warm up – Seated inner thigh stretch
- This warm up helps open up those hips and warm up the lower lumber of the back .
