Do you know the four major types of exercises you need to incorporate into your regular fitness routine to get the best results possible in your fitness training?
As you probably have noticed, science continues to evolve as we continue to find more discoveries on how to train for improved health & performance, what are the best methods to train, and what types of exercises you should perform.
Since science has transformed how we train today, these four types of movements that we love to see in our fitness clients training is what’s getting them the best results.
The 4 fitness movements we’ll be teaching you more about are:
- Kettlebell Swing - Hinge
- Front Squat or Back Squat
- Loaded Carry
The kettlebell hinge is where you're going to be hinging at the hips, while keeping your back straight, knees slightly bent, and pushing your butt back. Almost like you’re sitting down in a chair.
The front or back squat is one of the most common exercise movements. This is commonly performed 2-year-old kids when they're playing on the floor.
The next movement is the pull. Pulling motion exercises can be done with rows motions, or pull up type movements. The more our society gets more sedentary, sitting in front of a computer for long hours, the more your shoulders begin to roll forward. Thus, the importance of a pulling exercise.
The final fitness exercise you should incorporate into your training regimen is a loaded carry.
A loaded carry is where you're carrying heavy objects hanging from your side, or held against your chest or above your head.
A great example of a loaded carry whenever you're picking up your kids, grabbing groceries, or lifting a heavy bucket.
Other examples are carrying your suitcase when traveling or moving boxes above your head.
These 4 types of fitness movements are all critical to include in your fitness training.
Over the next 4 weeks, we’ll be demonstrating HOW to perform these movements correctly and how they're going to benefit you.
