Game Plan for December
December Workout Game Plan
For the month of December 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 December we will decrease from time under tension (two exercises per muscle group) and will be moving down to one exercise per muscle group.
New December 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 December we will be adding two new workout exercises and one new warmup exercise.
RB Squat and leg lift
- This exercise targets the outer hip muscles without neglecting those quads and gluts muscles on leg day!
RB Squat hold kettlebell hold
- This compound exercise hits the gluts, quads and shoulders all while engaging your core muscles.
SA Roller Fly Hold
- Working the chest muscle while getting a deep stretch. This exercise challenges all the stabilizers muscles associated with keeping the arm in a constant state of tension through the chest movement while incorporating all the smaller arm stabilizer muscles, like the bicep, tricep and shoulder.
