The speed at which we perform a certain movement or exercise has an influence on the muscles recruited. Obviously sports that prioritize power, acceleration, and speed require a higher degree of muscular control and skill in order to execute efficiently; but for those of you who are just beginning or would like to improve your overall performance, adjusting the tempo of your exercises will help you develop muscular control much faster.
.If we break down all the movements we've covered so far into two components, we can better exercise control over the movement as a whole in order to improve neuromuscular conditioning. The takeaway point we want to emphasize is the importance of the eccentric phase. Since most strength training exercises focus on the concentric contraction; the eccentric portion of an exercise brings many benefits that can be missed if not performed properly.
.The eccentric phase is associated greater hypertrophy in the working muscles, better recruitment of motor units, injury prevention by strengthening the tendons, and improved athletic performance. Spend a little bit of extra time during your training and practice controlling your movements to see noticeable change in your overall strength and performance.
“That’s easy for you to say you’re already fit”
“You’ve always been athletic it’s not the same”
“It’s not as hard for you”
I hope these usually cropped out ends of my videos show you guys that it never gets “easy”. You become stronger. Your form gets better. You become more knowledgeable. But “easy”? Nah it gets harder...but it’s worth it.
Now enjoy these clips of me almost yarfing all over @cityathleticclub
Who is trying to build muscle?
Muscles LOVE plexus! 💪❤️The Tri-plex combo contains 3 products essential for those who are working out and trying to tone up to help with muscle recovery, endurance, and to target fat loss! Check it out... 👇👇👇 1) MAGNESIUM (found in BioCleanse)- plays a number of roles in the body being required for more than 325 enzymatic reactions, including muscular contraction and relaxation and cardiac activity. Even more important is magnesium's role in both aerobic and anaerobic energy production. A deficiency in magnesium reduces metabolic efficiency and increases the oxygen consumption and heart rate required for work-- exactly what an athlete doesn't want!
2) CHROMIUM (found in Slim aka "pink drink")- allows insulin to be used more efficiently. Most people know insulin is needed to regulate our blood sugar but many don't know that it is also a fat storing hormone. By regulating your blood sugar, and therefore insulin levels, you will see more natural sustained energy and allow your body to burn fat and build muscle daily!
3) PROBIOTICS (Plexus ProBio5)- have been shown to both your overall health and athletic performance. Here are just a few of the MANY benefits of a healthy gut: stronger immune system, improved sleep, less sugar cravings, improved mood, less brain fog, and improved blood lipid levels. They also improve muscle recovery by increasing antioxidant absorption!
If you're big into working out or an athlete and haven't given these products a shot yet, let’s talk.
