Game Plan for April
April Workout Game Plan
For the month of April 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 increase the amount of weight under shorter periods of tension, which will result in our overall ability to increase weight from month to month! In April we will decrease from time under tension ( one exercises consecutively per muscle group) so we can have more rest to allow us to go heavier for April.
New April 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 April we will be adding two new workout exercises .
Rubber Band Lat Pull Down
- Lat Pull Down can be extremely beneficial in building upperbody strength and target the upper body muscles, especially the latissimus dorsi, biceps, and deltoids muscles. It is also quite beneficial in keeping the shoulder healthy.
RB High Knees
- Using Rubber Bands during a high knees cardio station requires additional core and energy to keep tension on the bands, making for a great core and anaerobic exercise
