What you'll learn:


Welcome to The Training for Life Series! We're going to present some powerful information that is not generally talked about in the greater fitness community. Taken into consideration, you'll find workouts that create way less wear and tear on the body, actually help stimulate and rebuild muscles and joints and create a body built for longevity. Matt discusses what to expect in this series including:  
  • Ensuring you're fit enough to train
  • What's needed for training
  • Building for posture
  • Discussing monthly programming in an overview
  • Exercises and movements we'll be demonstrating
  • and more...

Week 1: Strength Phase

Stimulus rotation is all about changing up the variables of what you're working on. Meaning, repetitive exercises that you use time and time again end up working against you in the long run. Here we dig into how to understand what stimulus rotation is and how to build programming that leverages it for building a healthy training program. We just talked about how and why strength is important in your fitness routine. Now we're going to get into how to program out a routine that is built to apply across your weekly/monthly regimen.

Week 2: Hypertrophy

In this section, we dig into how to program out a week where building muscle is the goal. Strength drives the central nervous system and the muscles into overdrive and maximizes them to the highest potential. Hypertrophy is the method for adding on more muscle mass - in turn that can handle greater loads of strength. We'll get into how to use higher repetitions and tempos for building more muscle mass.

Week 3: Isolateral Programming

Isolateral movements are made for building balance and allowing weaker muscles to catch up. Week 3's programming schedule will dig into how to lighten the weight and hit the muscles with balanced-based exercises.

Week 4: Deloading

You've been working hard for the last 3 weeks! Time to deload. Deloading is exactly as it sounds, we reduce the weight slightly and pull back on the total effort we're pushing through. But we're careful not to stop everything. Find out how to properly deload and what a healthy regimen looks like for allowing the muscles, bones and CNS to restore themselves.

Exercises Explained

Here we get into demonstrating a number of essential exercises you'll want to incorporate into your routine and explain how you can add variation in over time. You'll learn proper technique in both what to do and what NOT to do. Coming out of this segment, you'll have dozens of exercise variations you'll be able to perform from a core set of key essentials here.
