WORKOUT PROGRAM DESIGN
Learning the Basics of Antiaging Exercise
Antiaging exercises focus on building
muscle and maintaining flexibility.
- Building muscle mass – by
sufficient weight training intensity to create that
burn sensation. If you do it right – you should
be sore the next day and ready to work out again the
- Building cardiac fitness –
by using High Intensity Interval Training –
short 30-60 second bursts in amongst your 30 minute
- Stretching – on those non
muscle mass building days to develop the lean muscle
fibres and keep the joints flexible
To enable you to design the most appropriate workout
routine for your body type, exercise personality and
antiaging goals, it pays to understand the basics requirements
and fitness program protocols.
For the purpose of seeing how all the different types
of workout programs fit together I have added paragraphs
from other fitness and antiaging pages. Follow links
to get more details on these topics.
Work Out Equipement
For this program you only need free hand weights.
If you don’t think this is as good as using a
gym, let me share with you how much better hand weights
can be than all that expensive equipment.
Firstly, working out in the gym is how you move your
body for maybe one hour, 4 times a week.
The rest of the time you move your body without them.
So do you want to build strength and fitness based for
the movements you do 4 hours a week or the other 164
Secondly, for example, bicep curls done at the gym
uses a machine to isolate just that muscle, by restricting
the use of other muscles. And you are sitting down –
probably just like you have all day!
Standing up doing bicep curls needs your body to brace
– this brings into play your abdominal muscles
and the muscles of the lower back and spine. Isn’t
this a much more efficient use of your time?
Free-weight exercises mimic athletic moves and generally
activate more muscle mass.
