In every moment our brain is invaded with loads of information that requires time for processing and in order to be efficient, our brains uses automatic movement patters (like locking the door when you leave home or turning the car engine on) to perform different tasks. When we have to do a new movement, we analyse every aspect of it which make us to be slow in an non-efficient way because we can’t talk about the reflexes yet but reactions.
Five sets of 20 reps for the major muscle groups with compound and isolation exercises like front and back squats, bench press and chest flies, chin ups and bicep curls. This program is design to improve fast-twitch muscle development and increase muscle endurance with extended times under tension. If you want to try something challenging this routine can be what you are looking for.
You don’t need to do tons of exercises or to follow a special and complex training program to see the results that they expect. See what exercises engage the large muscle groups and include them on your training for gaining strength and muscles.
Start by having a high plank position and after one second, perform one press up then rest in the same high plank position. After two seconds perform another two press ups and so on.
Your result is the number of rounds done before you get too tired to hold the plank or to perform a good form press up or the final time.
After a couple of workouts where I used a lot of weights I decided to do a “no-weights workout”.
For warm up I used dynamic stretches and compound exercises using body weight like squats, push ups, chin ups, high jumps.
The opening day of CrossFit Blackfriars was great. Lots of amazing people gathered together to see and check out London’s newest CrossFit box.
