Fitness Hacks to Transform Your Body
Fitness Hacks to Transform Your Body – Train Unilaterally What is unilateral training? It is simply working one side of your body at a time.
This is not the same as, say, alternate dumbbell curls where you do a rep with the left arm, then a rep with the right, etc.
You do a complete set for one side before moving to the other. For example, do a set of 10 reps on the leg press with your right leg only and then do a set of 10 reps with your left leg only.
Unilateral training allows you to increase your focus on the muscle you are working on by doing a better job of isolating the working muscle.
Your intensity increases because you increase the muscle involvement due to the bilateral deficit.
The bilateral deficit means the total weight you can lift by working one limb at a time is more than the total weight you can lift when working both limbs together.
This increase in focus and intensity will help your muscle building efforts while boosting your strength.
Skip The Ab Exercises
Forget the crunches or the silly circles you sit on and spin, those things will never get you the flat abs you want. The best core exercises are things like the farmer’s walk where you simply hold a heavy weight at your side and walk with it. It could be dumbbells or kettlebells.
An uneven weight works fantastically for engaging the core. Try holding two dumbbells, one heavier than the other. Each set switch hands on the weights.
Exercises like squats burpees, deadlifts and push-ups work the core very well.
Workout At Home
You don’t need a lot of fancy equipment or a lot of space to get a killer effective workout and the results you want.
Working out at home also helps avoid the excuse of getting up off the coach and making the trek to the gym. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the right piece of equipment being used when you need it.
You can listen to the music you want, etc. Some people are motivated by working out in a gym setting and that’s fine, but don’t think you need a fancy gym to get great results.
In fact, a home gym with a few pieces of quality equipment and bodyweight exercises are really are you need. Even if you like to hit a gym, try a home workout now and then for a nice change of pace.
