Are you tough enough?
I am currently training an elite group interested in an intense race this summer, one of those with many physical obstacles and challenges. I decided to that there is a great deal of benefit to be had for people who are interested in challenging their physicality in fun and dynamic ways but who can’t always hit the gym. So I am posting daily workouts that can be done nearly anywhere, nearly any time. They are not meant for beginners or the truly deconditioned but they can certainly be modified (every exercise has safe modifications) for most fitness levels.
I want to keep people (all people) motivated, moving, and active without requiring either the time or additional resources of most fitness centers or training classes. They are also great opportunities to realize strengths and weaknesses which open the door for you to see how I can help you on your goals and challenges, contact me with your questions or to get started on you own personalized program.
So give them a try. They don’t have to be done in any order nor do they need to be completed on a daily basis to gain benefit. Mix them in to your typical routine and watch your performance grow. I am sure many of the exercises will be unfamiliar, certainly by title. So I have launched a YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/romwellness that will feature exercise demonstrations and modifications (we will start posting videos March 8th). So go ahead, expand your range!
The following are general caveats that apply to ALL of the workouts:
- The workouts of the day (WOD) are intended for individuals who are already participating in an active exercise program and who are cleared for moderate/intense exercise by their physician.
- The WOD are suggestions meant to add challenging pieces to your workout routines or act as a supplement to your daily routine.
- They are not meant for private personal training or group activities. Range of Motion Wellness cannot be held accountable for accidents or injuries that may arise as a result of the workout of the day.
- If you are unsure about an exercise, seek a trainer’s assistance or just skip it.
- Do not perform these activities in any way that breaks local laws or ordinances.
- Don’t be stupid, if something hurts, don’t do it. If you need rest, take it. And, as always, drink water before, during and after any intense exercise and have appropriate snacks before and after to ensure your body is getting everything it needs.
- All WOD should be performed with adequate warm-up exercises (5-8 minutes of medium cardio) and active work (active stretches). Range of Motion Wellness does not advocate static stretching prior to any workout and recommends flexibility work as part of your routine to build dynamic mobility and stability throughout the body.
