Further to yesterday’s article, detailing important dietary aspects with weight loss plans, the majority of individuals training regimes, even if they are focused on “weight loss”, are far off track of the goal of being “beach ready”.
To understand the root of this problem you must first realize that the difference between resistance training in a “mass development” phase and “weight reduction” is not as great as it seems. In-fact, when designed properly there are many very broad similarities, yet of-course the important term to realize is a well constructed training regime.
The majority of resistance programs in the market have three very common faults:
- A seemingly endless amount of repetitions with one exercise. It has become fashionable in the last decade to promote long duration sets of one particular exercise, such as with kettlebell or dumbbell swings. Ignoring the fact this radically increases the risk of injury and creates enormous joint integrity issues but who came up with the idea of performing a compound explosive movement in extreme sub-maximal levels? The sheer phrasing should sound like nails grating along chalkboard but in an industry that cares more about SEO script, splash pages and sales conversion, maybe somewhat should re-evaluate that point.
