Many people say they are just too busy to have time to workout and by the end of the day they are just too tired. Hence we have the sedentary and the obese that dominates the US population.
The truth is you can workout three days a week for thirty minutes or less and be in shape. Let me explain how this Function Fitness Circuit works.
First You Have to Go Slow and Steady
First you must take two months of easy Functional Fitness Training to get in shape so that you can get in shape for a Functional Fitness Circuit. Like I say, “Sometimes you have to get in shape to get in shape.” Many people start out way too hard and fast and all they get is sore, injured and discouraged. Take the time to build up slowly. Do just 10 sets to start, alternating between upper body, lower body and abs. This way you can keep your body moving and begin to lay a healthy foundation for a more intense workout. Each workout, depending on how you feel, add two to four exercises until you are up to 42 to 52 lifts. You will duplicate some of the exercises during the workout when you reach a higher number of lifts. After a couple of months you will be ready for a Functional Fitness Circuit.
Let me give you an example of one of my workouts.
The other day one of my clients came in and said I need a workout but I have to catch a plane in an hour and a half what can we do? I said follow me and we will train together, let’s go! We started out with a sit-up then a dumbbell flat press and we repeated the lifts. We then went to a close grip pulldown which is a rest from a pressing exercise. Followed by a 1 Dumbbell pullover, dumbbell laterals, dumbbell front raises, dumbbell bent-over laterals and then we did a leg run (squats, lunges, squats on balance balls, no weights) for an upper body rest. This type of rotation continued for a total of 46 lifts which worked the whole body and we were done in twenty five minutes. With this pace you heart is beating at 80 to 90 percent of its maximum heart rate, which also makes this a great cardiovascular workout. Do this three times a week every other day and you are fit, trust me. Get a hold of me at the NBAC if you want to learn more.
