🔷How I develop my training programs for my clients and myself🔷
➡️We all want to build muscle and lose body fat, so what is the best way to go about doing your workouts?
☝🏼First off, you can’t out train a bad diet. You can workout 5 hours a day, but if you eat like shit you won’t ever see results.
Ok, now that that’s out of the way let’s talk about optimal training.
1️⃣. Dynamic warm-up: I always always always start with warming up my body, preparing for the intense training that is about to happen. That means jump roping before an upper body day for minimum 20 minutes or before legs I spend a good amount of time doing hip dynamic stretches/drills.
2️⃣. Compound movements are always first in my book. Deadlifts, squats, hip thrusts, barbell bench press, shoulder press, pull-ups; those are the ones I no questions asked start with first. Compound movements require multiple muscles to work in unison to perform a movement. It is crucial you are at your strongest with these lifts. Any sort of fatigue MAY increase likelihood of injury, especially if you are working with heavier loads and rep ranges below 6 reps.
3️⃣. All. Of. The. Accessory. Work. My workouts are 2 hours long and I absolutely love it that way. Some people prefer 45-60 minute workouts and that’s cool, but that’s not me. I will do all the smaller isolation exercises and I’ll pair 2 or 3 together and do them in a superset form. I’m all about efficiency and time so supersets are number one in my book.
4️⃣. I finish all my workouts with either abs and/or calves because no body part goes neglected. I’m all about performance, but aesthetics also play a huge role on how I train and if you’re not hitting the smaller muscle groups, you won’t build a good physique.
I hope this helps you out on building your next training program or workout for the day.
Everyone is different and not everyone likes the same things. It’s really important for you to find out what works best for you, your body, and your mind.
