How To Use Common Machines In Your Gym

In this video I will be demonstrating some common exercises, as well as another movement that can be performed from the same piece of equipment. In residential and corporate fitness centers, where space and equipment choices can be limited, it's important to be able to get the most out of each piece of equipment. Let me know what you guys think about the exercises demonstrated by commenting in the section below!

Strength Training Plan Made SIMPLE!

When you guys train, do you prefer total body workouts, body part splits, or training an individual muscle? ๐Ÿค” With so many different ways to train, each having their own pros and cons, it's no wonder people get confused on how to workout!
In this video, I'll be demonstrating a favorite method of mine for performing a total body workout, using the pull, push, leg, abdominal template. Feel free to plug in your own exercises, or you can use the ones I suggested for your own training! ๐Ÿ’ช

Nonconventional Treadmill Exercises!

Your treadmill workouts shouldn't have to be the same old boring routine that you've been doing for the past year. Just like resistance training, your body will adapt to the stress which is placed on it, often resulting in a plateau in progress over time. The same rule applies to cardiovascular training. You need to add some variation within your cardio workouts so your body remains challenged, and to also keep your workouts "fresh and fun"! 

Check out these exercises you can perform from the treadmill either as a separate workout, or incorporated within your normal treadmill routine. These exercises will not only add variety, but also aid in your fat loss and cardiovascular goals.  Let me know what you guys think by leaving a comment in the comment section below! Have fun!

Rope Attachment Total Body Workout!

You don't need a TON of equipment to get in a solid total body workout. That's why this week I wanted to demonstrate a total body workout that you can do just by utilizing the rope cable tower attachment. No need to go from handle to handle when you have a rope and an arsenal of exercises to go along with it! This workout would be great for those times when time and space are limited within your residential or corporate fitness center! Give the workout a try and let me know what you thought of it in the comment section below!

Are you looking for more variation within your workouts?  Are you tired of the same old boring routine that you've been doing for the last two years?  Why not incorporate the Swiss Ball into your workouts?  The Swiss Ball is a great way to make some of the more common exercises you may  be familiar with a little more challenging.  Also, for those of you who train out of your community or corporate fitness center, space and equipment options can be limited.  Most fitness centers have a few Swiss Balls, so I hope that you are able to take with you a few of these exercise I'm about to show you! 

TRX Exercises for Beginners

This video is for anyone that is relatively new to the TRX, or would like to make sure their technique is correct. I will be reviewing a few common exercises and demonstrating the correct and incorrect form. The TRX is an amazing piece of equipment which uses your own body weight for resistance. When training in corporate or residential fitness centers, space is always a factor, so I would highly recommend incorporating the TRX into your workouts. It's portable, lightweight and very user friendly.

Total Body RESISTANCE BAND Workout!

Have you ever considered incorporating resistance bands into your workout routine? Not only are bands a great tool to help build muscle and strength, but they can also be incorporated on a recovery day to offer a little less training stimulus for when your body is less than optimal. For beginners, I like incorporating bands into their regular workouts because bands can be less intimidating than regular weights, yet offer enough resistance to build a solid baseline of strength. For the more advanced lifter, incorporating bands can offer some temporary relief to tight muscles and joints as you recover from a previous strenuous workout.

In this week's video I will be showing you 5 hacks to make this possible when it comes to chest exercises. The exercises range from easiest to hardest so make sure you master each hack in order before progressing to the next one. Have fun and leave a comment below if you have any questions.

Squat Progressions Using Minimal Equipment!

Not to worry, Prime Health Management has you covered! In this week's video I will be demonstrating how to progress a basic squat into a more challenging squat.

Exercises For Office Workers

Have you seen the latest video from our sister company, Prime Health Management?  Do you work in a corporate office building and sit at your desk for hours on end? Do you often find yourself with lower back pain and poor posture as a result of all that sitting down? In this weeks video I will be demonstrating a sample workout for people just like you! These exercises will loosen up your tight hips, strengthen your abs and give you more range of motion in the shoulders.

How To Properly Use The Leg Extension Machine

Our sister company Prime Health Management just released a new video on how to properly use the leg extension machine!  Most residential community or corporate office building fitness centers will have some variation of a leg extension machine. Generally, most of us are rather tight in the hip flexors and quads and would probably benefit more from doing hip hinges or squats, rather than doing countless repetitions on this machine.  However, every individual is different with different body types with their own personal goals in mind.  If your goal is to build size and strength (just in the quad) than this exercise could be perfect for you.  However, are you setting up the machine properly and performing the repetitions in the correct manner?  Found out how in this video!

Rotator Cuff Stretches For Better Shoulder Function

What's up Silver Strong Family?  Our new video comes from our sister company, Prime Health Management, and it's all about the rotator cuff muscles and how to properly stretch them to get them functioning properly. There are 4 different rotator cuff muscles. Three of those muscles (Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor) are responsible for externally rotating your arm. The other rotator cuff muscle (Sub Scapularis) is responsible for internally rotating your arm. If you are a regular lifter or athlete, you more than likely have imbalances within these muscles and favor internal rotation. If this is the case stretching your external rotators may give you more problems down the road. You may need to focus on stretching your internal rotator (sub scapularis) while strengthening your external rotators to achieve better balance within your shoulders. If you are unsure which muscles to stretch and which ones to strengthen, consult your physical therapist or personal trainer before attempting these exercises.
