Form Friday: An extra stretch to help your recovery!

In case you’ve ever wondered how to effectively increase your flexibility without spending an extra hour in some other class.

Before you stretch, make sure you are warmed up! Never stretch a cold muscle. If you include this stretching routine after every workout, it will help!

First off this is active/resistance stretching. This type of stretching is done in a way that allows your body to stretch itself as you push and pull the muscles.

Form Friday: Adding to your Core Work!

We do a lot of core work here at PFT! In fact, even when we aren’t doing a specific core move, we are still working our core for stability during 100% of all the moves at PFT!!! And often times you will hear your trainer saying pull your belly button toward the floor or “tuck it”.

So today I want to talk about two things: The Belly Scoop: how to do it, and how to incorporate it into everything we do at PFT.

Form Friday: Lateral Pushup to Row

Push-ups and rows are a staple in any workout program. Done correctly, both of these exercises can potentially build strength, endurance, and power in the upper body. In the lateral push-up, one side (the working side) performs about 90% of the work, while the other side (the non-working side) really only helps to keep you stable through the movement. When these exercises are combined, the additional challenge of core stability is presented. However, to get the maximum benefit, both of these movements must be performed with Pure Form in a coordinated effort.
