Fitness Training

 My one hour-session combines:

  1. Weightlifting
  2. Cardio vascular exercises
  3. Stretching 

1. Weightlifting:

My training  principles are based on very basic laws of:

  • Human anatomy
  • Physiology
  • Biochemistry
  • Bio-mechanics. 

The reason why my training is so efficient is because I use the law of over-compensation. It can only be achieved through the overload training principle combined with an adequate diet that will allow metabolism to function with peak efficiency. I also incorporate the High Intensity Training principles:

  • It is a form of strength training popularized in the 1970s by Arthur Jones
  • The training focuses on performing quality weightlifting repetitions to the point of momentary failure. 
  • The training takes into account the number of repetitions
  • The amount of weights
  • The amount of time the muscles are exposed to tension  in order to maximize the amount of muscle fiber recruitment.

 Weightlifting plays a crucial part in your success, because muscle burns fat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Read more interesting facts

Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect from a regular stretching program:

  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Increased range of movement in the joints
  • Enhanced muscular coordination
  • Increased circulation of the blood to various parts of the body
  • Increased energy levels (resulting from increased circulation)

 Weighlifting is beneficial to both men and women and all body types. 

 

2. Cardiovascular exercises:

In my 8 principles program, combining cardio and weightlifting is necessary to achieve optimal results since they coordinate with each other.  Read health benefits:

 
 
 
 

  •  Causes your lungs to process more oxygen with less effort
  •  Promotes weight loss by burning extra calories 
  •  Helps the heart to pump more blood with fewer beats
  •  Improves mental health
  •  Lowers blood pressure
  •  Improves the immune system
  •  Increases stamina
  •  Improves cholesterol levels
  •  May increases life span
  •  

     

    You can also do cardio and stretching on your own, to spend a full hour with me on strength training

    How To Stretch

    After exercise, cool down and hold a given stretch only until you feel a slight pulling in the muscle, but no pain. As you hold the stretch the muscle will relax. As you feel less tension you can increase the stretch again until you feel the same slight pull. Hold this position until you feel no further increase.

    3. Stretching:

    It is a really important part to slow down aging process. After exercise, you should cool down and hold a given stretch only until you feel a slight pulling in the muscle, but no pain.  As you hold the stretch the muscle will relax.  As you feel less tension you can increase the stretch again until you feel the same slight pull. Hold this position until you feel no further increase. We can include stretching in my session.  We will discuss about it.
