3 trainers share how you can stick to your fitness resolutions in 2019

When trying to stick to your New Year workout goals, it’s best to ask the experts what works. According to three top certified personal trainers, it’s important to have goals as long as they are specific. For example, rather than saying you will join a gym, quantify that you will work out at the gym three to four times a week. Be realistic and choose activities that you enjoy. If you hate running on a treadmill, then don’t say your goal is to do treadmill workouts four times a week. And if you’re joining a gym, choose one that is convenient to your work and/or home so that you actually go.

Key Takeaways:

  • The guidelines for exercising says that Americans should aim for 150 to 300 minutes of moderate-intensity movement weekly but 80 percent of Americans fail to reach this goal.
  • Of the people who said that exercising was their New Year’s resolution, they said they aim to achieve it by working out three to four times per week.
  • About 17 percent of the respondents say that they plan to use some sort of activity tracking device like a Fitbit monitor or an Apple Watch.

“INSIDER recently polled 1,102 people about their New Year’s resolutions for 2019, and 395 said theirs was related to exercise or activity.”

Conditioning and Lifting

 

Improving lifts and techniques in Olympic lifting will be the turning point for many of your clients when it comes to their conditioning and metabolic times. Now, this might sound counter intuitive.

How does lifting help metabolic conditioning. Well, there’s one answer in today’s video that is very helpful. But let us add to that answer by adding that repeated Olympic lifts for strength training is a great way to raise and lower the heart rate repeatedly over a set period of time.

What does this result in? If you guessed a higher and stronger metabolic threshold, then you guessed correctly.

Now for that other, very practical answer to this question, take a look at today’s video discussion.

And more than anything…get your clients lifting.

Technique: Developing That Clean & Jerk

 

The clean and jerk is one of the funnest movements in all of Olympic lifting, and it certainly will benefit your clients. The movement is a combination of core strength, balance, precision, and overall body strength.

With its quick step movements and raw power, it certainly is a feast and spectacle for the eyes.

To teach a movement takes time and practice. One helpful thing to do is to break it down into its core components for your clients so they can build that chain movement.

Of course learning the deadlift is crucial, as well as the bottom out position of the front squat. One aspect of the movement that is sorely forgotten yet crucially needed, is the spring bound before the jerk.

Take a look at what we mean in this short clip and watch how athletes are being prepared for the jerk by getting used to the movement of the weight.

Technique and Safety In Squatting

Squatting is a key component of any program, whether it’s functional fitness, boot camp or personal training. We squat because we are building that raw power in our clients to do more and to lift more. This routine is key to each and every single movement your clients will learn in that gym.

For something so important, we must give a lot of time to technique and safety. Teaching your clients how to plant their feet, keep their backs and chests upright and in proper position, and to sink into the squat as if they are sitting becomes a key concept in this entire movement.

In addition, that bar placement over the back and balanced over and through the heels becomes essential. It’s one thing to talk about it, but an entirely different thing to show it. Take some time to not only review for yourself, but to go over these movements with your clients today.

That Full Body Warm Up

 

The warm up is by far the most important part of your client’s workout. Now, getting them to believe and understand that is a completely different issue. They are probably hard pressed to think that it’s about hitting those Personal Records and getting a great time on that metabolic workout.

What they don’t understand, though, is that those great times and big lifts are all as a result of a well warmed up body. What does the warm up do? It prepares the muscles to receive weight and to expend energy.

Without a proper warmup, the body would rather shrink away from work rather than deliver.

So think about giving your clients a full body warm up that will prepare them overall. It’s not enough to warm up the parts, but rather think about the whole.

For a great example of how easily this can be accomplished, take a look at this full body warmup routine.

Handstand Push-up Progressions

 

We’ve been talking about auxiliary work for the push up early today, and it’s natural to think in that push-pull classic tandem of lifting.

So if we have the pull with the pull up, where is the push for the shoulder movement in functional fitness? It comes in the dreaded handstand pushup.

The handstand pushup is one of those dreaded movements in functional fitness. It’s not only the fact that you are inverted and thus in a very uncomfortable position, but you must also think about your balance, your hand placement, your push, etc.

So many things are going on with this movement.

So how does one go about getting that handstand push-up? Well, for one thing, remember that the progression should start first with the strict handstand pushup work before teaching the kip.

So in order to do this, one must build up shoulder strength. Here’s a helpful way of building to that inverted shoulder strength position. Take a look.

Auxiliary Exercises for Pull-Up Volume

 

Chances are, if you have gotten your clients to that first, seemingly mythical pull-up, the next thing they are going to be concentrating on is 2 pull-ups, and then 3 pull ups, etc. They will want to raise the volume of repetitions almost immediately, and this will pose a problem.

How do you increase the amount of pull-ups you see your clients doing? The simple answer would be volume work. However, anyone who has been training for a while understands that this is simply not the answer.

More volume on the movement itself will not necessarily be the thing to get your clients a higher rep count.

Instead, what you can do is auxiliary work to build up the stabilizer muscles used in the movement itself. This will help with the pull and the volume count.

Specifically for the pull up, one thing you can check into is this double kettlebell swing movement. Enjoy!

Narrated Lifting Videos

 

We have a treat for you today with a video from Catalyst Athletics head coach Gregg Everett narrating videos of his lifters going through their routines.

What’s great about this is that he’s able to point out exactly what they are doing and where they are going wrong.

This is not only good for you to watch, but it’s also a great idea to introduce this into your own training of athletes. Take the time to record them in their lifts and give them real and specific feedback as you watch together.

This way you will see a tremendous amount of improvement as they watch themselves and make specific corrections.
