Flexibility (Mobility Exercises)

Many people suffer from what I like to call “I slept wrong syndrome”.  If when you went to bed you didn’t have any pain, and when you woke up you did…you’re mobility joints (ankles, hips, thoracic spine or mid back, & shoulders) probably tightened up.  The pain in your neck or low back will get better by loosening up the mobility joint that got tight.  You see, the tight mobility joints cause difficulty for the stability joints above or below them (knees, lumbar spine or low back, & neck).

So check out this short video.  Peter performs 4 mobility exercises, …

Movement Preparation (Dynamic Warmup)

Most people mistakenly believe that reaching for their toes is a good way to get ready for exercise.  Actually, it’s a great way to get the muscles to relax, AFTER a workout.

Check out this short video.  Peter is performing a couple of dynamic warm up exercises to get ready for the workout to follow.  We first started with some mobility exercises.  These are more gentle stretches that help keep the mobile joints…well, mobile.  When the mobility joints (ankles, hips, thoracic or mid back & shoulders) stay mobile, they keep the stability joints (knees, lumbar or low back, & neck) …

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.

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 …

40 yard, 160 lb. Indoor Prowler Bench Challenge

In this clip you will see Champion Powerlifter & former TEST Sports Club (Tinton Falls) Sports Performance Director, Joe McAuliffe, take on the club record in our Indoor Prowler Bench Challenge (40 yards, 160 lbs.).

The Prowler Bench is a great training tool.
It will give you great results, in less time, with relatively safe bio mechanics.
Start with power walking, progress to jogging & then sprinting (over weeks of time).
Then you can add weight.

Watch Joe give his all to try to top the previous record of :11.8 seconds.

live right, Keith…

Functional Rope Training w/ Mike

In this short clip, Mike performed these 3 very challenging (the Indoor Prowler weighed over 200 lbs.) reps, per set, pulling & pushing the bench with a rope attached to it.
I didn’t shoot the cable chops, just the Prowler work.

The goal was to complete the 3 reps in less than :40.
Mike finished in :32!

I had Mike do three functional exercises.
What that means to me, is exercises that use a lot of muscle integrated together, to accomplish the goal, that also help prepare you for everyday life tasks.
The first part, pulling, utilizes the legs in …
