>50 TRX Burpees and 50 TRX Body Rows a day keep your fat away

>

Hi Z-BEST FITNESS fans,
Try this workout:
1 round as fast as you can of:
50 x TRX Burpees
50 x TRX Body rows
Although this workout seems simple enough it WILL “sting”.  Great for burning fat and getting your abs ripped.
Few Tips:
TRX Burpee
Think of this as mashing up a TRX suspended lunge with TRX suspended uni push up.  Like most complex movements using your core is very important, it will keep you balanced and steady.  If you are just starting to play around with TRX defiantly give this a crack, however in suspended push up position you might want to keep your foot on the ground to protect your lower back.
TRX Body Row
If possible get your feet as close as possible towards or under the anchor point of the TRX, as this will keep it challenging. Try to keep the space between your chin and shoulders nice and open, do not crunch up through your shoulders and you might want to look up in the sky rather stare at the anchor point of the TRX

>10 Things I learned / observed by going to the big commercial gym

>



1.The guy that sells you a membership is your “best mate” until you commit on the 12     month gym contract…and then he can’t even  remember your name.
2. A Kettlebell is a great door stopper.
3. You must carry your towel around on your shoulder, however you do not need to wipe sweat of the equipment after your use.
4. No one uses Rowing Machines.
5. “TRX?…what is TRX? Olympic rings?…like on the flag?”
6. After each set of bicep curls it seems compulsory to flex in front of the mirror.
7. It seems if there is a female working out it’s compulsory to stare and act as if you’ve never seen a female in your life.
8. You are not allowed to wear Vibram 5 finger shoes because it is an OH&S issue, however any other running shoes are fine.

            “Why?…oh just in case, if you drop the weight on your foot”
9. You do not have to put equipment back after you use it.
10. If you are training with a partner make sure you have a lengthy chat with them in between the sets, even though there could be someone waiting to use the same piece of equipment.
I am sure there are plenty more.  If you’ve got any more please include them on Facebook.

>"Midlife Crisis"

>

Good Afternoon,
Full body “Pure” TRX workout time:
1 round as fast as you can of:
40x TRX Anatomic Push Ups
40x TRX Squat Jumps
40x TRX Body Rows
40x TRX Balance Lunge
Put a stopwatch on and see how long it takes you to complete 1 round.
One thing that you have to think about is that if you want to track your fitness levels and keep a check on how you improving, make sure you set some standards.
Some of the standards that I use for my clients and myself are:
40x TRX Anatomic Push Ups – “chest to the ground and feet starting under the anchor point”
40x TRX Squat Jumps – “ass to the grass”
40x TRX Body Rows – “feet under the anchor point and stay on your heels”
40x TRX Balance Lunge – “Back knee to kiss the floor – not smash the floor”
It is always a good idea to set some sort of standards so when you re-test you have “valid” result.
Also if this choice of exercises is challenging, water it down and choose exercises that you can do.  This is the great thing about TRX.
Just remember to try to include push, pull, lift and core “flavors”.
Contact me with any questions and good luck….

>6 reasons why you should be doing Pull Ups

>




·      Pull up is a compound movement. Which means you are using more then one-muscle group at the time. Doing big compound movements equal big strength gains and large fat loss.

·      For the Girls, Pull-ups will give you a nice back definition.

·      For the Boys, Pull ups will give you nice biceps aka “big guns / pipes”

·      You have to work both ways.  Unless you are master of doing “kipping pull ups”, you will have to control your movement on your eccentric phase (going down), otherwise you will stack it down or start swinging like a monkey.  You will have to use your core to reduce the “Swing”.

·      Pull Ups will assist you with developing of grip strength, which is important for every sport.

·      Pull Ups are a closed kinetic chain exercise. Closed Kinetic chain exercises are much more functional, they usually require more core control then open kinetic chain exercises like the lat pull down. (You will not get good at pull ups by just doing lat pull down)

>Add Them all up

>

Add them all up…
This is a hard one but remember more you put in more you will get out.
This Workout is divided in 2 parts.
1st part With a continuously running clock do one Clean and Press the first minute, two Clean and Press’s the second minute, three Clean and Press’s the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.
Use as many sets each minute as needed.
2nd part, get a clock running and do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.
Use as many sets each minute as needed.
You can use this system with any exercises. I picked those 2 exercises because they pretty much cover our whole body, there is a push, pull and lift…and of course a huge core tension is needed, especially with clean and press’s.
Try to enjoy this one
