Week of May 17th, 2010 – “The Slow Jam”

There is nothing better than slowing it down and pounding our your reps slo…um…ok so let’s agree that this is the one week where I shoud avoid the intro and just move on and keep it clean. We have all seen them at some point and time working out in the gym…the people who alter proper technique to claim that they lift more weight that you do. (It’s truly Darwinism at its finest and Physiotherapists everywhere thank them for their swagger and spastic methods). This week I hope to challenge you to slow it down and relish in the machine that your body truly is. Do not underestimate this one, breathe and “git ‘er done”!

We are going to keep the repititions low here since your entire body will be protesting by your 6th rep…let’s go!

Push Ups x10 – Allow yourself to descend at your normal pace until your nose is about 2 cm off of the ground, then take 10 seconds to ascend back to your starting position.

Crunches x10 – Allow yourself to ascend at your normal pace, then descend by using 10 seconds to return back to your starting position

Squats x10 – Descend at your normal pace, then take 10 seconds to ascend back to your starting position

Hyperextensions (Superman) x10 – Ascend at your normal pace, then descend by using 10 seconds to return back to your starting position
