A new month is upon us and hopefully you are finding success with your fitness goals. Last week we covered combination exercises and I hope you found them to be beneficial to you. This week’s focus is on isometric exercises.
Wedding Season Week 5:
“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going!! Pain is temporary, results are forever; why not strive for perfection!!”
Tip: Every “body” is different; you have to find what works for you!!
The human body is very difficult to understand and finding the perfect workout takes time. Something that works for your friends may not work for you. Keep searching until you find the key to your success.
Week 5 Wedding Fitness Plan:
Week five is geared toward isometric exercises. Isometric exercises are a form of exercise that involve a static contraction of specific muscles without movement. In other words, holding or maintaining a specific position for a certain amount of time without moving. Basically using your body weight for the exercise. These exercises are good for building strength, endurance and rehabilitation.
Good luck with the following exercises and remember to get your cardiovascular training done as well (30-60 minutes). I recommend holding each exercise for one minute then immediately move to the next exercise; repeat three to five times (hold the squat and lunge in the isometric position).
Check-out Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, and Week 4 of Matt’s Wedding Fitness Plan.
