Lower Body Training
Posted on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 in Health & Fitness

Having a strong lower body is a very important aspect of health and fitness. A strong lower body stabilizes other parts of the body, especially the back. It also leads to healthier knee and hip health while also giving people a greater ability to maintain balance. All of these are reasons why exercisers should not focus solely on improving upper body strength. As legs are the largest muscles of the body, working the legs provides the exerciser with many metabolic benefits, such as greater ongoing calorie burning. There are many exercises that can be performed to improve lower body strength. These include exercises with and without machines.

Some exercises without machines are squats, Romanian deadlifts, lunges, box jumps, jumping rope, hip raises, and leg raises. Free weights (dumbbells and barbells) can be added to squats and lunges in order to provide extra resistance.

Some exercises with machines are: leg extension (work the quads), leg curls (work the hamstrings), calf raises, and the leg press.

Use a variety of these movements to continue to force your lower body to adapt and improve.

Exercises All Individuals Should Perform
Posted on Thursday, October 9, 2014 in Health & Fitness

Whether you belong to a gym or like to work out at home, certain exercises should be a part of your routine at least three days per week.

1.  Squat.  The squat is considered the best lower body exercise and can be performed with or without weights.  It benefits all areas of the lower body and benefits the heart due to its use of so many auxillary muscles.

2.  Push Ups.  This exercise works multiple body parts in the upper body and forces the core to keep the body steady.

3.  Crunches. Crunches are excellent for the abdominal area assisting in both core strength and improved posture.  Be cautious not to do full sit ups as they can cause stress and potential injury to the lumbar vertabrae.

4.  Mountain Climbers.  This exercise is a great conditioning calisthenic that uses muscles from many areas of the body and is great for heart health and cardiovascular conditioning.

5. Jumping Jacks.  This is another very good conditioning calisthenic that is beneficial to both cardiovascular and heart health.

The primary characteristic of these five movements is that they require no equipment, not too much space, and can be performed by nearly anyone that doesn’t suffer from an ongoing physical limitation.  Modifications can be made in all of these exercises so that individuals of different strength and fitness levels can benefit from these elements of fitness.

Initially, start with 2 sets of 10-12 repetitions with a break of 30-60 seconds between each set.  If you are unsure of your fitness level or physical capability, see a physician prior to starting this workout regiment.  If you are already of a higher fitness level, increase the sets and repetitions, and decrease the rest time to suit a higher intensity workout environment.

MMA’s top athletes are today’s new fitness models
Posted on Thursday, June 25, 2009 in MMA News

 

Being fit- whether we want to admit it or not- we all aspire for it.  Just look around in society.  Fitness is on almost every magazine cover; whether it’s a fitness magazine, a teen magazine promising readers to swimsuit-ready abs or a model on the front cover with a well-defined body. 

 

There are diets that tell us to cut out carbohydrates from our diets, to eat only foods they’ve approved or eat nothing but cottage cheese.  There are diet pills, diet shakes, and of course, diet soda.

 

It’s time to stop emulating the bodies of airbrushed models, and realize that most of the football and baseball players out there have either not gotten their toned bodies naturally, or are simply overweight.

 

As Ultimate Fighting Championship events continue to grow in popularity, many are starting to tune in and take notice of a new level of fitness.

 

The attention brought to the recent World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight championship of Mike Brown vs. Urijah Faber had many take notice of both the fitness and toughness of Mixed Martial Arts fighters.  Not only can these fighters take and receive forceful blows, but their bodies are in top physical condition, even for veteran fighters in their 30s.  Fighters have their bodies ready for anything thrown at them, literally.

 

Fighters get their toned bodies several ways.  First, there’s the physically demanding daily workouts.  The strength and conditioning training is intense and shows fighters rewarding results.  These workouts comply to individual fighters’ specific needs.  Fighters often train for many hours a day, because being fit and ready to fight are their jobs.

 

Their dietary regimen is strict and incorporates a healthy lifestyle.  This is especially true in weeks before a fight, where fighters often have to lose weight.  The fighters have a dedication to complete health and fitness.

 

Faber himself has often said he was raised to be health-conscience and has maintained a lifestyle of healthy dieting and exercise habits.  “I’ve been fed with a great diet from the womb,” Faber told Men’s Fitness magazine last year.

 

In the interview with Men’s Fitness, Faber said he drank no soda, and ate little red meat or processed foods.  For breakfast, he makes a high-calorie shake.  He eats foods rich in protein throughout the day, such as milk and peanut butter.

 

His workouts do not include conventional weight-training exercises, but mostly focuses on boxing, kickboxing, jiu-jitsu and wrestling.

Veteran fighter Jens Pulver has a workout that is equally challenging both mentally and physically.  To get himself ready for his routine, he practices getting mentally tough, which is a skill he needs in fights.  His physical workout, like many fighters, focuses on strength and endurance.

 

WEC fighter Micah Miller’s workout consists of stretching to gain flexibility and doesn’t consider his workout finished until he’s stretched, according to an article from wec.tv.

 

Cole Miller, Micah’s brother and fellow fighter, has been known to train for triathlons to get him into cardiovascular shape.  To get ready for a fight, he increases his sparring and follows a schedule set up by him and his team.  His diet is mostly all organic or natural.

 

Eating healthy and exercising should be incorporated in everyone’s daily lives, both for health reasons and to see results.

 

The web offers many different MMA programs, with focuses and strategies ranging from strength, endurance, improving metabolism, athleticism and conditioning, among others.  YouTube has a selection of videos showing fighters’ secrets to improved fitness.

 

If you prefer a more personal and rewarding atmosphere, Titan Fitness offers several different types of class focusing on MMA, in addition to offerings of full gym facilities.  Their experienced staff will work to meet your individual needs.

 

Even if you’re just a spectator not a fighter, or if you’re more interested in getting a toned body, look no further.  If you’re dedicated to fitness, try one of the country’s fastest growing sports, MMA, and get a complete full body workout.
