Unleash The Beast From Within

Training methods have changed dramatically in the last 10 years & for the better if I might say so myself. We are talking about unconventional training apparatus & routines, like heavy ropes, tyres, prowlers, rocks , kettlebells, sandbags, medicine balls together with body weight exercises. We at The Tough Spot Gym incorporate all the above to give our Tough Spotters a variety not to mention keep them on their toes. You might ask why I keep going on about this ? Because the results are there, research with trial & error have shown our body does not know muscle it knows movement. Unconventional training routines & workouts are usually known as caveman / cavewoman workouts. Let me elaborate a little on this in regards to using compound versus isolation exercises. Compound exercises are exercises that use more than one muscle group & run multiple joints in opposition to isolation exercises that limit one joint & one muscle group. An example of a multiple joint exercise would be the traditional squat, strengthening quadriceps,hamstrings, hip flexors & gluteus & working through the hip & knee-joint at the same time. A typical isolation exercise would be a preacher curl or dumbbell biceps curls that targets biceps & only moves the elbow joint. Even today still in gyms across our great nation we see the same thing day in day out an overweight guy walks on the treadmill for 4 minutes, then hits the chest press for a few sets, then he grabs the curl bar, stares into the mirror , then cranks out 2 sets of bicep curls. When he is done with that he grabs a squishy mat to do a few reps of crunches. If this sounds like you, you’reĀ  in for a rude awakening ….. when you try our KATMA Strength & Conditioning Guide or take one of our group classes. You will learn to UNLEASH THE BEAST FROM WITHIN………
