June Workout Game Plan
For the month of June our muscle group pairings will be back/chest and shoulders/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 June we will build on May’s time under tension and will be working specific muscle groups for three straight exercises.
New June Class 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 June we will be adding two new exercises to our warmup routine: the Lying Quad Stretch and the Seated Forward Bend. We will also be adding the following new workout exercise to our leg routine:
Split Squat from Step (Bulgarian Split Squat)
- If traditional split squats weren’t enough, we will be adding an extra element by doing them with our back foot elevated on a step or box. This will create several new challenges, including more focus on our stabilizer muscles, and more room get down into our squat which will create more range of motion for those leg muscles!
