Functional Training w/ a Barbell & Bodyweight

The goals of this video are; show people that they do have time for exercise (the work in this clip is 8 1/2 minutes long), to let my clients see me work hard (suffer really), and to teach that strength circuits are very time efficient for fat loss/ strength building/ and aerobic-anaerobic conditioning.
People don’t have as much time for anything anymore.
But their health is regressing while they remain sedentary.

I also wanted people to know that they can work AROUND injury issues, not THROUGH them.
I have shoulder problems, and plantar fasciitis in both feet.
This circuit was …

Heavy Rope Work

In this short clip you will see Scott performing a seated row using a heavy rope, our indoor Prowler Bench, and Dan & Carolyn as cargo (along with 2

45 lb. plates).

This exercise is good for;
back musculature, arms, forearms (grip strength), rotational ab strength…..and because it uses so much muscle, it has a profound effect on heart rate (watch Scott’s face at the end of these 3 reps!).

By the way….Scott is using approximately 435 lbs. here….good job Scott….thanks Dan & Carolyn!

live right, Keith

P.S. This footage was shot @ TEST Sports Club in Tinton Falls, N.J.…

Functional Training Circuit

In this clip you’ll see Bryan going through 3 challenging, full body, functional exercises.
The 3 exercises are;
band assisted chin ups (great exercise from the abs and up), plyo box rear barbell lunges (this is great for;
abs on down, balance, stretching the hip flexor which gets tight on people who spend a lot of time sitting, helps running performance because of training for forward propulsion), & med ball power crunches (great for:
shoulder mobility, core muscles, ab work, sports skills like the soccer throw in).
These types of circuits also help with fat burning because of the physiological …

Functional Training Circuit

OK, let me set the scene.
With David Bowie playing in the background, Bryan (soon to be 47 yrs old), training @ 5:30 am before his commute to the City,
performs a very challenging 5 functional, full body exercise circuit.
The circuit will work the whole body for almost 2 minutes straight, causing an anaerobic heart rate response.
That will cause Bryan to burn fat calories for the next 24 hours.
The circuit consists of sprinting 60 yards to 5 different stations;
20 pushups, 10 reaching jump squats (Bryan can jump!), 10 jumping jacks, 10 dumbbell power clean to presses, …

Functional Training

These days many people have a problem finding enough time to exercise.
From 10 years ago most people have less time, less money, but they’re fatter.
What can people do?
Shorter more intense bursts of full body (functional) exercises are very effective.
In this clip you will see Ray & Greg going through 4 very challenging exercises;
Roman Chair (great for abs, supporting your bodyweight and spinal elongation), Chain Squat
Curl & Press (full body move generating a high heart rate response), Smith Pullups (great for back, but also hamstrings), and Squat Thrusts (which hit everything).
Doing exercises that functionally …

New ACSM Exercise Guidelines

This morning I read a PFP digital article from the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine).
It stated that people need 250 minutes of exercise per week to achieve high level goals.
This isn’t true!
Think of what sprinters bodies look like-lean & muscular.
They get that way from performing intense short bursts of exercise.
By doing intense, short duration, functional, full body exercises-you activate the CNS (Central Nervous System), which produces an anaerobic effect.
This will cause you to burn fat calories long after your done exercising.

My big problem with this misleading information is that it will demotivate …

Functional Training

In this clip we watch Mike go through 3 exercises designed to hit;
back, legs & abs.
But listen to the narration.
There’s a lot more functional muscle work going on here.
By using exercises that use a lot of muscle, you not only work on your movement skills better, but you will burn more calories during & after the workout.
Mike is working really hard here, but why do I enjoy that so much?
