Tom Holland’s Fitness Tips on Strength Training

July 8th, 2012

Fitness Guru Tom Holland, Co-host on Herbalife 24FIT dvds  gives tips on strength training and techniques.  He highlights the most common mistakes people make when working out in the gym.

Choosing the right weight is very important ….. Tom says “Women use weights too light and men use weights too heavy. Men want to become Arnold and women are petrified of becoming Arnold.” as in Arnold Schwarzenegger !!

I enjoyed this short video, hope you do too. Tom demonstrated how to use dumbbells correctly, choosing the right weight for your workout, not to swing arms widely and to engage your muscles.

Will post more of Tom’s tips over the coming weeks and of course will report back on my progress using the Herbalife24FIT dvds.

Herbalife24 FIT vs P90X Insanity

May 19th, 2012

Here is a very recent review I’ve received, as it says don’t compare Herbalife24 FIT to P90X Insanity !

Sheila from Vermont, USA says” I am almost done with Week 7 and can see a difference already in the shape of my arms, back and tush! However, do not compare this to Insanity, P90X or the like. The concept is very different. Bob Forster is a physical therapist to the professional athlete world, including Kobe and Olympic medalists so it is SLOW, safe and scientifically sound for injury prevention. You may think it’s almost too easy at first but it’s based on his theory of “deconstructing the athlete”- training smaller muscle groups that heavy hitting wgt trainers ignore. Great program for every fitness level!”

Facts about the Herbalife24FIT Dvds and Where to Buy

May 11th, 2012

What is Herbalife24FIT –  the facts and where to buy?

Herbalife24FIT is a 24-week program, designed to build your fitness in an effective and sustainable way. This home-fitness system utilizes periodization principles to systematically vary exercises and intensity, helping to achieve maximum physical adaptation

Why should. I choose Herbalife24FIT as my workout routine?

Herbalife24FIT is better than any other home workout program because:

  • You will be less likely to quit Herbalife24FIT once you get started because it follows scientific training principles.

  • Originally created for professional athletes, the program progresses your fitness naturally, so that you not only keep going, but never want to stop!

  • It is designed to protect your body from injury.

  • Herbalife24FIT is a program of handpicked exercises proven to make your body more resilient to injury. It also includes built-in rest days to allow for recovery and make your body stronger.

  • Herbalife24FIT trains your body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates for more efficient energy usage.

  • It makes you a “better butter (fat) burner.”

How long does the Herbalife24FIT program last?

Herbalife24FIT is a 24-week program, divided into three phases, each lasting eight weeks.

Phase 1 – Stability

Phase 2 – Strength

Phase 3 – Power

How is each eight-week phase broken down?

Over the course of each eight-week phase, you will be alternating between two types of workouts:

Strength Training Workouts

will focus on your physical structure, your muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue. These workouts are on discs 1, 2 and 3 in each phase.

Metabolic Workouts

will improve your metabolism (how your body burns calories). These workouts are on disc 4 of each phase.

How long does each workout last?

Each workout will take about 30 minutes.

What are rest days?

Every sixth and seventh day in the schedule, you will be given one day to rest and one day to participate in a recreational activity of your choice.

What are rest weeks?

In addition to rest days each week, every fourth week, you will also get to enjoy a modified, more relaxed schedule.

Why do I need rest days and weeks?

The body gets stronger while resting. That’s why we’ve built a rest day into each week and a rest week into each month. Even the most highly trained athletes in the world take days off. So rest, your body needs it!

What happens when I complete the program?

After you complete all three phases, you can continue the program. Just start over at Phase 1. This prevents overtraining and burnout.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Day 5 Total Body Intergration

April 30th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 3 which is total body integration – My review – day 5

The routine started and finished with stretches.  A few minutes into the routine you’ll need lightweight dumbbells so be prepared.

First moves were squats, then single limb balances, i.e. balances on one leg – here I had megga wobbles ! Best way to get out of wobblying is to focus on one point of the floor.

Next came the squats with weights which I found easy and managed to get positioning right, side step squats where you moved about the floor.  All of these exercises great for strengthening the core muscles, quads and glutes. Then we did an isometric hold (contracting core muscles) and went into lunges.

Final exercises were planks – first the straightforward plank position, working abs and core muscles.  Check out the back muscles of the girl in pink shorts, her back looks amazing !  Then the more difficult side plank position which I’m definitely going to have to work on.

Next 2 days are rest days or recreational activity days – whichever you choose, I’m going walking or swimming.

Weeks 1-3 of Phase 1 Stability is just repeating what we’ve done this week – so my next review will be on week 4.

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 4 which is a metabolic workout – My review – day 4

Now getting into the swing of this routine and concentrating on posture, if you’re used to energetic routines could be tricky keeping it low impact. Worked up a bit of a sweat, great knowing it’s fat burning as this is what week 1 Phase 1 is all about – flexibility, strength and making us better fat burners !

Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD. , consultant for Herbalife speaks about metabolism

Tommorow I will be moving onto dvd – Phase 1 Stability disc 3 – body intergration – sounds good.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability dvd – disc 2 – shoulder stabilization

April 28th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 2 which is for shoulder stabilization – My review – day 3

The Herbalife24FIT workout started off with a quick warm up of stretches closely followed by exercise.  The idea of shoulder stabilization comes from the fact that it is one of the weakest points in the body, is very mobile and everybody should be doing these exercises to strengthen their shoulder joints.  Shoulder stabilization exercises should be done with the neck relaxed, controlled movements and the slower the better.  These exercises will strengthen the shoulder joints and give us balanced healthy bodies. 

We did exercises for triceps, biceps, lower body, core, something called internal and external rotation which was performed on the mat, with light weighted dumbbells, the plank and lastly push-ups.Hope I’ve not missed anything out !  This workout I had to study closely to get the hang of how to use the dumbbells and to make sure my body was in the correct position.  Good thing about the Herbalife24FIT workout (for me) is that exercises are repeated over the coming weeks, so I will have chance to improve.  Practice makes perfect !

Roll on tommorow when I repeat Metabolic dvd – disc 4 low impact aerobic moves for more fat burning.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability on Day 2 Metabolic Workout

April 26th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 4 which is a metabolic workout – My review – day 2

Just finished the day 2 metabolic workout and I must say I enjoyed it – it’s very much like low impact aerobics, but the key thing was it was burning fat !  Maybe a bit tame for all you fit people out there but this is only phase 1 and  I know it will get harder as you go though all the 3 phases.

A few stretching exercises at the start of the Herbalife24FIT dvd metabolic workout, then kept up a steady pace going through “fat burning” moves.  Need a solid floor to do your metabolic workout as there is a bit of walking/jogging on the spot, step tapping, knee raising using arms, kicks, footballer player moves,step pushing, push backs and skipping – think that was it !  total workout 30 minutes.

Felt good at the end of it, looking forward to my next Phase 1 Stability dvd – disc 2 – shoulder stabilization.
