If you’re struggling to see results from your suspension trainer & resistance band workouts…
…struggling to feel the muscle you are targeting…
…and not finishing workouts feeling like it’s been meditation…
Then you’re performing ‘Movement-Centric Exercise’.
This is NOT what we want…
There’s a big difference in the way people exercise to transform their body.
It comes down to two directions:
1. Movement-Centric Exercise (99% of people)
2. Muscle-Centric Exercise (1% of people. This is us!)
Movement-Centric Exercise uses many muscles to move a load (load = your body).
A shared load over many muscles means the stimulus to change, grow, and develop on each muscle is low.
Unless you’re a power / strength lifter using HEAVY weight.
But, if you want to:
- Safe guard your joints by using lighter loads
- Prevent injury
- Build lean muscle and transform your body at home
- Have workouts that are like meditation
Then using a suspension trainer, resistance band, or body weight is perfect. BUT you MUST use it with…
MUSCLE-CENTRIC TECHNIQUE in order to build lean muscle that will transform your body.
Purposefully isolating a muscle and placing it under tension for long periods.
When we isolate a muscle, it is MUCH weaker on its own.
Hence why we can get a greater stimulus and growth from lighter loads. Such as bands and body weight.
Combine that with mindful muscle-connection and BOOM!
It’s always worth taking an honest look at how you workout.
Making the change to learn and apply the right technique will save you a lot of time and energy in the long run…
And could even prevent injury.
Let’s get to it!
I wrote a deeper dive on this and how you can apply muscle-centric technique within your suspension trainer or resistance band workouts…
