Exercise

Avoid this $4,000 Exercise Mistake!

This is it, you have finally made the commitment to go all out and build that home gym and get a gym membership on the side, you know, for those days you want a change of scenery.

But should you be acting so fast to go out and buy this equipment? The average cost for the most common “heavy duty” piece of home gym equipment will run you about $2,000. I’m talking about an elliptical or a solid treadmill.

When your product arrives you light up like a kid on Christmas morning! Everything is planned out and nothing is going to get in your way, this is the year that new, smaller waistline happens. A couple months in you are rocking your new piece of equipment and feeling good. You start to wonder, what if I start to throw in some weights on top of this???

You purchase a home gym with all the bells and whistles for $1,500 with over 100 exercises on it you can do.  But for some reason you find yourself doing the same 6 exercises over and over, your workouts become boring, motivation is lost and that beautiful elliptical and home gym is now a place for you to hang your clothes on.

It’s okay though, you have a backup plan. You head out to the nearest, cheapest gym and purchase a membership for $40 a month, back in the saddle! The first time you walk in with your headphones in bumping eye of the tiger you feel like freaking Godzilla.

The trainer dude walks up to you and says, what are you working out today? You pause and think, ah, just going to do a little bit of this and that. You walk around like a shotgun blast. The pace stays strong for a month with weekly visits then fades away, that membership is just another monthly charge but not a big deal because of the price and you may use it next month, right?

Exercise is like another area that has those that are an authority. When I need my taxes done or another professional service, I have those that are an authority guide me and take care of it. Why? because that is not my area and I’m not going to spend my money and time trying to figure it out.

Treat your exercise the same way! Stop wasting money on pieces of equipment and memberships that you think you may use again someday. Get with a place that has proven to get it done for others, sure it appear to cost more in your eyes compared to other places but you will get a lot more out of it, free up space in your home and never have to think about what you are going to work on for exercise that day. Do your research and go with that place who has proven to be the authority.

 

 

Overhead Press

Get the most out of your overhead press without wrecking your back.

The overhead press is great for not only strength but also building mass. The overhead press is like any other exercise that can very beneficial or if done incorrectly can cause a problem. I like to use a narrow, false grip with the overhead press.

Overhead Press Compensations.

The main compensations you will see in the overhead press is spinal extension and the head protruding forward.

Yoga Lincoln NE
