Ever heard the saying big things come in small packages? As over-used as that phrase may be, it quite aptly fits today’s workout routine.
Now, before I get into it, I want to give you a quite caveat. I often tell you guys to put the 5-pound dumbbells down and lift some real weights. I say that because far too often, I see (primarily) women lifting these little dumbbells hoping to make muscular progress. They think heavy weights = getting big and bulky. While that’s not really accurate, it’s another story for another day. It’s totally fine to use light dumbbells and higher repetitions if that isn’t the ONLY thing you are doing. Mixing and matching the types of weights you use is the best way to make constant progress. Not only that, this workout routine utilizes an awesome concept for the “iTraining” crowd as you’ll see below….
Pacer Training..The Best Way to Achieve Your Goals
This 30-minute fitness class utilizes our concept of “Pacer Training”. What is pacer training you may be wondering? Unlike other fitness plans and videos which simply demo a few movements then send you off on your own to complete them, pacer training has a real-life personal trainer leading you through the entire class…just like a group fitness class you’d find in an actual gym. By delivering our workouts in this manner, we are able to dictate the speed, intensity, and rest times effectively. Additionally, we are able to push you harder to burn more calories, fatigue your muscles greater, and leave you in better overall shape than if you were doing the same routine on your own. All you have to do is mirror the trainer on your screen and keep “pace”. Want more fitness classes utilizing our Pacer Training concept? We’ve got hundreds more to choose from on our full site, www.shareitfitness.com.
This video workout routine uses extremely light weight. I mean EXTREMELY. You think it’s going to be easy though I bet, huh? Guess again. Opt for a set of dumbbells between 2-5 lbs if you want to make it all the way through. You’ll be doing tons of iso repetitions, pulses, and a little cardio to bump your heart rate. Believe me, you’ve never seen a class like this. And the soreness you’ll feel after…don’t even get me started.
Why It Works
Since 99% of you have never trained in this manner, your body is going to be completely surprised by the hell you’re about to put it through. You’re pushing your muscles to extreme fatigue over the course of this class so be prepared to feel some real soreness in the following days. By breaking your muscles down in this unique way, you cause them to grow back even stronger. Doing iso exercises really helps us focus in on specific muscles, i.e. biceps, triceps, shoulders, etc so you can expect to develop a nice firm, toned appearance from this type of training. And again, by keeping pace with your trainer Casey, you’ll be ensured a sweat-inducing, heart-pounding workout that delivers results.
How Often Should I Do It?
Since this class is intense, I’d recommend no more than 2 (possibly 3) days a week. If you’re already on another one of our workout routines simply substitute this class for a strength training day. As I always say, mixing and matching workouts from various plans is a great way to make sustained progress; never let your body adapt.
