Exercise Organization/Allocation

Today, I’ll teach you organizational skills and how they will dramatically change how your workout is felt and what outcomes you get from it. We all know that being organized means getting more done, being productive, etc. But what if that also meant getting stronger, leaner, fitter? I watch people come to the gym day and out. I like to observe what they do, in a non-stalker way. Then I see a regular client of mine come to the gym and there is big difference. With them, there is purpose, a plan and execution, ending with desired results. Now this is not only true with my clients that I see 3+ times per week, but also the few that engage in my physical preparation consulting service. Those would be the clients that have a detailed plan with pictures, descriptions, layouts and user friendly plans. And that’s just to start. If you’re not one of those clients, that’s okay. I’m still going to give you the knowledge on how to organize your workouts.

Each workout starts with some warm-up, a stretch (you better be after my last email) and then the workout starts. That’s a great framework to start with. But to be more specific, are you choosing an organization method based on your goals, and are you balancing muscle groups each week to enhance development and avoid injury? No sweat if not, I’ll show you.

We’ll use strength (‘weight training’) to get you started. First, choose your goal: Stability, Strength, Power. Then, lay out your week with all your training sessions. For example, M/W/F are your days for strength. Next, write down all the muscle groups you want to train and divide them among the days (ie. Mon-Chest, Wed-Legs, Fri-Shoulders). Put your weakest areas first in the week and first in the workout. This is for priority sake. Then choose from the following organization methods in which you will go about doing your workout:

STABILITY:

CIRCUIT METHOD: Complete a set with no rest, then go to next exercise. Done with more than 5 exercises

EX. A) Squat 1 set x 10 reps

B) Bench 1 set x 10 reps

C)OH Press 1 set x 10 reps

D)Curl 1 set x 10 reps

E)Sit up 1 set x 10 reps

F)OH Ext. 1 set x 10 reps

Rest 1 min

MINI-CIRCUIT METHOD: Complete a set with no rest, then go to next exercise. Done with 5 or less exercises

EX. A) Squat 1 set x 10 reps

B) Bench 1 set x 10 reps

C)OH Press 1 set x 10 reps

D)Curl 1 set x 10 reps

Rest 1 min

STRENGTH:

PRE-FATIGUE METHOD: Organize the workout from smallest muscles to largest.

EX. A) Calf Press 2 sets x 10 reps

Rest-1min btw

B) Leg Extension 2 sets x 10 reps

Rest-1min btw

C) Knee Extension 2 sets x 10 reps

Rest-1min btw

D) Single Leg Squat 2 sets x 10 reps

Rest-1min btw

E) Squat 2 sets x 10 reps

SUPER-SET METHOD: Pair two opposite muscle groups back to back, without rest.

EX. A1) Chest Press 2 sets x 10 reps

A2) Seated Row 2 sets x 10 reps

Rest-1min btw

POWER:

ALTERNATING SET METHOD: Pair two opposite muscle groups back to back, with rest in between

EX. A1) Chest Press 2 sets x 10 reps

Rest 1 min

A2) Row 2 sets x 10 reps

Rest-1min btw
