July Workout Game Plan
For the month of July our muscle group pairings will be Chest/Legs and Back/Shoulders. 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 challenge ourselves to not decrease the weight while we increase the amount of time our muscles stay under tension. In July we will Increase time under tension (four exercises consecutively per muscle group) so by trying to stay at the same weight will challenge your muscles getting them to grow stronger and with strength comes shape.
New July Exercise Additions!
Keeping with our monthly tradition, we will again be adding new exercises. 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 July we will be adding two new workout exercises.
Rubber Band Hold with Rubber Band Side Step.
- This is not your normal side to side squat, we could have just added the rubber band but went one more step to work the chest by placing a large rubber band around our upper body then pressing our hands away from us as we continue our side step, making for a highly effective chest and leg contouring exercise.
Bosu Ball Sit Out.
- We continue to challenge the core by placing ourselves on an unstable platform such as the bosu ball while lifting our legs to one side causing our core muscles to have engage in order to hold our selves up during the exercise.
