The following points (or positions) of flexion workout is designed to stimulate the entire length of the muscle. From a full stretch to a full contraction.
This is an intermediate workout that uses 2 to 3 sets per muscle group.
Here is the training sequence:
Duration: 6 to 8 weeks
Goal: Create muscle size and strength using cominations of exercises and repetitions, stressing thighs and hips.
– 3 to 4 workouts weekly
– Each body part is trained with a neutral position exercise, a stretched position exercise, and a contracted position exercise.
– 2 to 3 exercises per bodypart
– Variety of repetitions to work all apects of fitness
– Short rest periods to keep intensity up
– Medium to light weights used
– Rest periods vary in duration
– Cardio work at the end of each workout for 25 to 30 minutes
– Long walk each day when practicial
– Best scenario: Try performing workout A on Monday and Thrursday and workout B on Tuesday and Friday
– Rest on days 3, 6 and 7.
– You can also alternate workouts A and B three days per week allowing at least 1 day of rest in between workouts
Workout A - Thighs / Back / Biceps
Workout B - Legs / Shoulders / Triceps
Remember to keep each exercise motion fluid and under control. Make sure you follow through with each movement to ensure full stretch and contraction – This is very important.
I suggest using this workout for a period 6 to 8 weeks. However, if the workout is producing positive results try using it for another 3 to 6 weeks.
