Realm health and fitness tips from Kyle

tank top, kyle, fitness, Are you ready for tank top weather?

As the mercury rises, shirt sleeves get shorter and before you know it, everywhere you look you’ll be seeing guys in tank tops.  Tank tops do more than just expose your arms; chest, shoulders and back are all exposed and for those of you cutting the sleeves sometimes abdominal definition (or lack of it) is visible.  Here’s a few strategies to make sure you are primed to live up to the motto “suns out guns out”.

Big movements – Remember that multi-joint movements typically have more benefits than single joint. (ie. Bench press instead if tricep extension.) The bench press or military overhead press will work your shoulders, pecs, AND triceps at the same same time! Pulls like rows or pull ups work the back and biceps. Note: when you are doing a push or pull activity you will always work your arms.

Slow and Steady – as mentioned in previous posts,  the eccentric or the lengthening phase of the muscle contraction is responsible for break down and building of mass. Practice rep variations by moving slowly through reps or practice having reps to get more time under tension.

“Pre-fatigue” – try doing a single joint movement before multi-joint movement; like bicep curls before pull ups. This will help break down assisting muscles (biceps) while depending more on larger muscles (lats and romboids) to get through the multi-joint part of the set. This results in a huge breakdown and overload of the mirror muscle because they are isolated and broken down, then immediately assisting you through a bigger movement. This activity also works triceps and an upper body push or quads etc…
