Perfect "Gym Bodies" Intimidate Beginners – Avoid Them By Doing Isometric Exercise At Home

Why subject yourself to judgment and ridicule from the "fitness freaks" in a public gym? For them it's almost entirely a matter of vanity and ego. Your dual goal of getting fit and healthy and looking good can be easily accomplished at home, with an isometric exercise DVD.

Oh, those self-proclaimed workout champs! They seem to be everywhere. We see them on TV, selling expensive exercise equipment resembling instruments of torture … we see them in the gym, strutting and posturing in front of the mirrors that line every wall in the place … we see their smirks, or hear them giggling at our lumpy, out-of-shape bodies as we struggle to lose a pound or two and cringe with embarrassment at how we look in the requisite leotards and tights ….

Who needs them? No one, that's who. Certainly not anyone with the admirable (and attainable!) Goal of regaining a healthy level of fitness and energy while simultaneously toning and firming their body to enhance their appearance.

All that's needed is an isometric exercise training DVD, which you can view and follow in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Soon enough, you'll be the one with the last laugh, as you get fit, trim and healthy without subjecting yourself to the pain, exhaustion and embarrassment of painful public workouts in a gym.

It's perplexing, how easily people were persuaded that in order to be fit, trim and healthy they had to wear themselves out with hideously strenuous exercise, suffering pain and limited mobility for days after a trip to the gym – and how they had to repeat that effort many times a week, without giving their muscles a chance to recover and heal from the over exertion. Somehow, someone convinced someone else that such extreme, painful exercise was sexy … and then lots of people were manipulated into believe it was true … and now all the "perfect gym bods" stand around admiring themselves and competing with others for mirror time while beginners feel like hideous losers and try to fade into invisibility.

Feeling (and looking) sweaty, exhausted, worn out and miserable is not sexy. And there's no need for it, either, to achieve the physical results you're after. All it takes is the resolve to establish a daily routine of sliding an isometric exercise DVD into your home player … doing the simple, painless, 10-minute isometric exercises … and letting nature do what it always will do when muscles are used in ways they were designed to be used without being stretched to the point of burning pain – that is, get stronger and more useful to you while the gentle workout starts melting pounds and inches away.

Now that's sexy! And effective, too – and not in any way embarassing or nerve-wracking, since all the work is done in the privacy of your home … when you feel like doing it, dressed however you feel like dressing … with no audience to judge or ridicule … Read More

The Order of Cardio Vs Resistance Work – Which Comes First?

In this article I am going to address an issue that is probably in the top 3 questions I am asked by clients, and that regards: Strength training vs. Aerobic training, specifically the 'order' in which to do them. By now, most of us know that there are 3 main aspects of fitness: strength, cardiovascular fitness and flexibility. You probably also know the little trick to remembering that "FIT" can help you remember the three key factors in your workout: "frequency / intensity / time". But something that seems SO variable among programs and workouts is the old "which comes first" in the session, cardio or strength training. In reality of course, we should always switch these things up anyway, and use periodization when working up our programs, so that we are training our bodies in the most comprehensive way. But beyond that "general" issue, and dealing with a specific workout goal, let's take a look at the body and how one method will produce a different result than the other.

The basics:

Your body stores different types of fuel for different types of 'work'. You have available "quick fuel" in the form of glycogen (sugar) in your muscles and liver. Think of this as 'one' of your body's 'gas tanks'. This is the "main" fuel your body grabs for when you need energy FAST, or need a lot of fuel availability at once, such as intense lifting. You also have that storage tank that we tend to dislike, the all important 'fat cells'. This fat fuel is mostly used for those activities that are low to moderate in nature, as your body needs more time to 'metabolize' this stored substance into 'fuel'. At all times your body uses a mix of fuel (for the purpose of this, and all of my articles, understand that this is somewhat 'simplified' to make the important issues easier to understand). Contrary to many statements made on products, nothing is going to make your body use only your fat OR only the sugar for fuel. However, different intensities most definitely use a different mix of the two.

Aerobic vs. Strength Training:

Note that I am calling this 'aerobic' work, which for this purpose is a bit different from 'cardio', because aerobic, by definition, is 'with oxygen', and involves training at a level at which you can still converse and breathe comfortably, whereas cardio training can be very intense and use mostly glycogen (your quick fuel). You can go on and on when working aerobically, and you will be using a greater percentage of your "fat" fuel during this kind of activity. Anaerobic cardio can only be maintained for a short time, due to the availability of the quick fuel.

For strength training, you need to 'overload' your muscles in order to make them respond and adapt to your work. You need plenty of 'quick' fuel for intense strength training, as your muscle's demand for fuel skyrockets! This is very different from AWT (aerobic weight … Read More
