EXPLOSIVELYFIT STRENGTH AND POWER TRAINING INFORMATION FOR THE SERIOUS ATHLETE!


Explosivelyfit focuses on the development of superior strength with the intent to help all drug free athletes reach their true strength potential. You will get stronger and more powerful using these strength training methods and tips.


Health tip: Set a goal if you want to lose weight, get stronger, or run farther.

If you are one of the many who is always wanting to lose ten pounds, run faster or get stronger then deciding on how many pounds or how fast or how much more you want to lift is the ticket to success. Once you have decided then write them down in specific terms.

Saying you want to lose ten pounds forever and ever is not the way to lose those ten pounds you've been bitching about for the last ten years is it? In the recent October, issue of the Journal of Consumer Research a series of studies reported that those who set ranges were more likely to stick to their plans when compared to others who did not set ranges. By ranges is meant that saying you will lose ten pounds is not as productive as setting a range of losing 2-4 pounds by the end of this week. Setting a single number is not as effective as an array of numbers that include the one you really want to arrive at in the end.

These range goals improved the individuals motivation to succeed and at the same time brought more engagement or buy in to the process than did the ones who used a single goal.

Probably the reason for the successes of those using the ranges was the built in flexibility. There is some leeway to this method, which seems to fit more people than the hard single number goal. On the one hand, you have the hard lower number for weight loss or the high number for strength gains and on the other hand, you have the easier to attain numbers.


Health tip: Is it possible to stop the arthritis in your knee from progressing?
There is more and more scientific research identifying actions that can help prevent the progression of arthritis in the knees. The one main recommendation that holds steady throughout all the studies is to reduce the weight your knees are carrying by losing excess body fat. This means maintaining an ideal weight or perhaps even a little less to ease the stress on your knees. The other common thread, when it comes to protecting your knees, is to avoid activities that create stress on them and running is a prime culprit when it comes to damaging the knees.

Health tip: Gaining weight as we age

Oftentimes people say they weigh the same now as they did in high school or college. However, they don’t look the same. Somehow, the weight they now weigh and the way it looks on their body is entirely different from their youth. In many cases, weight gain is common in this population but it does not have to be inevitable.

At present, full understanding of why aging causes a downward shift in muscle mass and a corresponding increase in body fat takes place is not understood. But we do know that it happens and in most cases, it is not a good thing.

Read the rest here.


Strength tip: Stretching Strength and flexibility training

Stretching and strength training go hand in hand. Start your workout with a general full body warm up then move to a dynamic upper, mid or lower torso stretch and end up with your movement specific stretch.

If you are unsure of how to make the most of your stretching exercises here is a handy twenty nine page booklet to look at and learn from. Stretching tips was written by my Australian stretching guide cohort, Brad Walker.

Stretching a the end of your strength training session helps prepare your body for the next one.
