Tips For Better Training

By Jacob Russell

Ever taken a look around your gym to see what the people around you are doing?

Do you question if the workout they are doing will help you reach your own physical goals faster?

Those are a small number of questions to contemplate as you continue to read this, but the fact is there is always a 'better ' lift to do than the majority of the lifts that you see folks performing at your gymnasium.

For instance, today a couple in my gym took it upon themselves to do a selection of exercises working their body from top to bottom, or so they assumed.

Their workout began with some dumbbell shoulder shrugs. That exercise targets the trapezius muscles that, if big enough, might make you look like you have no neck.

On the surface of things that would seem to be a healthy exercise to do, but if you dig slightly deeper you'll find that exercise does little in the way of helping you burn even the most minute of calories.

Let us look at it mathematically. The quantity of work done equals the force times the distance you're moving that force and the quantity of times that you're moving that force. For instance, if one was to use 30-pound dumbbells you may move that weight a total of 3 inches maximum. The trapezius muscles are not that massive therefore don't have the range the larger muscles do.

So that 30-pound weight moved three inches, 10 times, gives us a considerable number of 900. The unit of measure at that point is irrelevant.

Now let's have a look at an alternative exercise, the military press. This exercising is done with an Olympic bar pressing it from about your chin all of the way above your head till your arms about fully extended.

For this exercise we only used the weight of the bar which is 45-pounds. If you make the motion as if you were performing the exercise you may notice the distance that bar is going to go is around 24 inches or even more dependent on your size, and that was done for a sum total of ten repetitions. So 45-pounds, times 24-inches, times ten repetitions gives us a bunch of 10,800- again the unit of measure is unimportant. It only becomes applicable if we were to work out that number into calories burned.

On the surface, doing the military press was 12 times better than doing a dumbbell shrug, and that was with only the 45-pound bar.

This is just one example of a method to see if you're getting the best from your exercise session. Many individuals are oblivious to a few of the exercises that they opt to do and just do anything that suggests itself. You only have so much energy when you hit the gym floor, make it count and put it toward exercises that will give you the bang for you buck.
