Game Plan for October
October Workout Game Plan
For the month of October our muscle group pairings will be shoulders/Back 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 October we will increase from time under tension (4 exercises in a row per muscle group) and will be moving up to four exercises in a row per muscle group.
New October 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 September we will be adding two new workout exercises and one new warmup exercise.
Squat Side Step with Band
- For a shapely backside, you actually need to tone the glutes on the sides of your pelvis too. These lateral walks strengthen those very muscles: the glute meds. Plus, strong glute meds help stabilize the pelvis, making this exercise great for runners.
RB Plank Hand Walk
- This is a great exercise to warm-up with before any upper body exercises as it will help stabilize your shoulders. Activating your scapula will keep your shoulders healthy along with improving your posture.
Leg up hip lift
- This helps target lower abdominals muscles while still getting the upper abs involved.
