Posted by Tee Major Fitness Store on

When we bodyweight train, the upper and lower body must interact together in constant connection. Kinesthetically we refer to this as successive contraction, or like flicking dominoes to make them fall consecutively. Movement begins in the feet with a sense of being rooted from below the earth. Those who have had a chance to train with me know that when I teach the plank, for example, I always cue from the feet first.

3 Ways To Get More From Your Workout

Posted by Tee Major Fitness Store on

Use the following three tips to bring your routine up to the next level: 1. Be Unstable: Use your entire body, and target your core, by performing exercises that engage stabilizing muscles.

Some ideas for adding resistance include: carrying dumbbells while doing lunges, wearing a weighted vest while walking or jogging, or putting a weight between your feet while doing leg raises....
