To achieve your fitness goal there is three proven stages.
1 . Conditioning you for exercise 2. Your fitness goal
3. Your Nutrition
How can body conditioning benefit you? Just imagine you cannot build a skyscraper without a good set of foundations. No matter how fit you are, the body still needs to be conditioned from the complete beginner to a trained athlete, exercises need to be carried out correctly to get the most benefit from your training routine. Paul has placed together a personal approach to learning six different movements which will help you in everyday life to feel strong, happy with your image and to push you to your next step.
You will start building your foundations with stage 1, this is the area you will get personal instruction on how to carry out the five different movements (seen below), each exercise is progressed and tailored to each individual. All the exercises have been based on your everyday movements for example; -
Picking an object off the floor
Pushing an object
Pulling an object
Sitting up and twisting
Paul at Infantry Training Centre 2017
A survey was carried out within the British Army Infantry Training Centre from April 2016 to April 2017 (Paul was a part of), to stop new army members being injured throughout basic training. The results were outstanding, by carrying out strength and conditioning exercises for a duration of five weeks before moving onto more robust physical training, there was an 80% drop in injuries from the years before.
Based on these results body conditioning is intricate for you, before jumping straight into high-intensity classes, strength training or endurance activities take on body conditioning first. This will give you a lower chance of being injured, these movements carried out over a set period will make you feel more confident in moving to your next step in exercise.
Picking an object off the floor - compound movements
The beginning stages of picking an object off the floor is starting with the squat exercise. The squat is also used by the military to strengthen and align the body. Seeing above is the progression starting with sitting to standing off a chair. To regress the exercise a supported squat is a fantastic way to start.
Squats are extremely good for toning the legs, bum and activating the body core.
Once you have mastered supported squats, half squats is the next stage and then moving onto full squats with weight. Next you will progress onto other exercises;-
Romanian dead lift
Pushing an object
Pushing an object is common in everyday life for example; - pushing the door, a pram or may be a trolley round the supermarket. A progression is a hand release push-up starting on the knees and slowly straightening out the body over time.
Another great exercise is a shoulder press and tricep extension, starting with a light object to build up and tone up the upperbody.
Pulling an object
The opposite is pulling an object. This is another wonderful way of exercising. Bicep curls and bent over rows are ideal for toning off your arms and back.
Sitting up and twisting
Sitting up is definitely a common movement, we do this every time we get out of bed in the morning, then we twist left or right depending on what side of the bed we are getting out of.
Why not bring this movement into your exercise routine Paul will show you the correct way to carry this out, by bringing in exercises for the whole centre of your body.
Starting from the knee supported plank holding a static position is a great work out for your body core. Once you are ready to progress you can move on to the full plank and the side plank.
