Instant Training Improvement Tips: classic lifts for big gains
While I have often noted that “exercise is simple”, in-truth much of the modern exercise community is a complicated mess for the casual observer.
Unfortunately for the majority of the modern exercise field, a “complicated mess” might be overly complimentary as it is typically drivel that is used only to gain attention in marketing efforts and rarely without a shred of knowledge of physical education and conditioning. From the idiotic notion of performing high repetition Olympic based movements to failure, which will put the individual in a poor postural position when fatigued and thus raising the risk of injuries or simply prescribing basic calisthenics until completely exhausted, large stretches of modern exercise field is laying the foundation to both short and long term injury. Including the type of exercise I witnessed today, where the individual holding a heavy medicine ball, jumped up and off two stabilisation balls before executing a overhead throw, the sector has abandoned its past to garner attention in photos and media players.
Tammy Bravomalo discusses her supplement stack.
All resistance training, whether you are an Olympic athlete or the average individual exercising at home is based upon a Push, Pull, Press and Squat (reach, lunge and extend) but always with proper posture. While intensely simplified, you can either move a heavy weight slowly for low reps, a light weight fast for either high or low reps or a moderate weight for a series of repetitions. Simplifying further a weight can be raised, lowered or kept still and whilst you can write endless books on the “how’s and why’s” within intense analysis, the majority of the population will do well with that guideline along with the reinforcement of always using a proper technique and never allow posture to falter.
Keep exercise simple and ignore the ridiculous marketing initiatives that pull you away for the classic barbell and dumbbell movements.
