March Workout Game Plan
For the month of March our muscle group pairings will be Back/legs and Chest/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 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 March we will increase from time under tension ( three exercises per muscle group).
New March Exercise 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 January we will be adding two new workout exercises and one new warmup exercise.
- This exercise targets the Biceps, by holding the dumbbells at the mid level point in the bicep curl, you maximize the time under tension principle.
- Bicep Curls isolate the bicep muscle but also engage the front deltoid and forearm muscles during the movement.
Single Arm Dumbbell Press
- The Single arm dumbbell press helps promote a strong core as any single arm or leg exercise requires the core to maintain balance through the movement. This exercise incorporates the deltoid muscles, triceps and the traps during the movement.
