Core/ Aerobic “Alligator” Walk

In this video you will see David performing a great core building, upper body strength producing exercise….and he does a great job at the technique of keeping his hips straight & shoulders over his hands.

This is an advanced exercise for working your core (trunk muscles), and will also create a high heart rate response (when you incorporate many muscles used in an exercise, there is great demand for oxygenated blood to all muscles…therefore creating a more aerobic response & burning more calories). This also can be considered an upper body pushing exercise, because of the load placed on the …

Power Plate Bulgarian Split Squat w/ Med Ball

The Power Plate is a wonderful exercise tool. It provides; muscle contraction, circulation, bone density & nervous system activation. Check out- www.powerplate.com

Bulgarian Split Squats are a challenging exercise, that helps with; balance, hip flexor stretching (important for those that spend a lot of time sitting), leg & glute strength, trunk activation, & shoulder mobility…in other words, a lot of great stuff!

If you don’t have access to a Power Plate, or other Whole Body Vibration (WBV) machine, just elevate your back foot on a step, box, or bench.

Give it a try!

Shoulder Mobility Work- Face Pulls

Many people suffer from neck pain. Quite often this is due to tight shoulders and poor posture. This video shows Sue performing an exercise called Face Pulls.

This exercise strengthens the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder, and works on scapular retraction (shoulder blades squeeze). Most people are in head & shoulder forward posture due to lots of reading, computer work & driving. This exercise will help improve your posture & lessen pain.

Give it a try!

Med Ball Work

In this video you will see Bob & Rob performing 2 med ball exercises; wall rotational throws, & vertical granny tosses. Med balls are a great workout tool, that can be used for power, strength, aerobic/ anaerobic conditioning & core work.

You throw the ball in the air, let it bounce, catch it on the way down & let it load you into the next squat throw.

As …

Functional Training Circuit

In this short video you will see Peter performing a challenging, functional circuit.  The three exercises are; bent kettlebell rows, resistance band squat jumps, & a :30 sprint on the Versa Climber.

Take a look at Peter’s technique on the bent row, it’s very good- flat back, head neutral, elbow high.  The resistance band squat jumps are great for activating Type IIB muscle fibers, which are the first to atrophy, or suffer from fibrosis (they become non contractile).  The Versa Climber is a great aerobic/ anaerobic interval tool.  It’s challenging because it’s vertical, it uses all four limbs, and the …

Core & Anaerobic Circuit


In this video you will see Ed performing a 3 exercise core & anaerobic circuit.

The 3 exercise are; “T” pushups (good for shoulder stability & rotational core work), single leg RDL’s (it’s a reach across the opposite foot, so it works hamstring & more rotational core work), & then an 80 yard Prowler bench sprint.

This kind of circuit also causes a high heart rate response, which makes you stronger cardiovascularly, and you burn fat calories AFTER the workout is over. Remember, it’s about the intensity, but goal number 1 is, don’t get hurt.
So have someone teach you …

Concept 2 Rower 1 Minute Challenge

In this short clip you will see Dr. Tom Bilella, of Nutrition Treatment Center (www.nutritiontreatmentcenter.com), performing TEST Fitness’ (Tinton Falls, N.J.) 1 minute rower challenge.
The goal is to cover as much distance as possible in one minute.
So it’s an anaerobic power event.

Take a look a Tom’s technique. You want to think of this move as a powerful lower body push, where the abdominals brace & transfer force to the upper body. Then the upper body pulls to complete the stroke.
This may not seem bad, after all it’s only 1 minute.
But don’t be fooled, this is …
