Super Effective Workout Programming

April 24, 2017

pushupplanka(1)When people workout on their own, they often have no idea which exercises to incorporate in their program and how to sequence them. They often wander aimlessly through the gym with no real method or rationale to their exercise session. This can lead to poor results and a lot of wasted time. Instead put purpose to your workouts and use a template to assure you address all of the important fitness components.

Here’s a template that is very easy to incorporate and very effective.

Workout Template:

  • Warmup
  • Workout
    • Lower Body Focused Exercise
    • Upper Body Focused Exercise
    • Core Conditioning Exercise
    • 1 minute Cardio Drill
  • Repeat 3-6x
  • Cool Down

Most of us have rode and owned a bike at some point in our life so there’s some muscle memory there and should be easy to get started.

Already Have a Bike?

Great, but if you haven’t rode it for a while, it would be wise to go get it tuned up. Head to http://www.vancouvercyclery.com/ or http://www.camasbikes.com/ locally or https://www.westernbikeworks.com/ in Portland.
