Every woman who has survived pregnancy can tell you that pregnancy takes a toll on a mother’s body. The good news is that the change can be temporary. You can bounce back! You’ll have to work harder than you like to get back to where you were before and even harder than that if you want to look even better. But, if you are tough enough to have a child, you are tough enough to do what it takes!
The strength and conditioning, sports and performance industries has been transforming to a paradigm shift. This shift is blending traditional lifting and power techniques with movement variability to load the body systems in a 360 degree environment. I know one of the training tools added to arsenals is the SandBells and the Hyper Vest Pro Best Weight Vest by Hyperwear! In addition to the usual weight training equipment, many types of tools are being used in the program, such as medballs, dumbbells, ViPR, but SandBells add a different dimension than the others.
The traditional model of training often has “blocked” model design, typically characterized as usually low complexity, low skill level single movements in a pre-determined, sequenced design. This often is characteristic of the traditional strength training model. This is not to say it is not a good model, as it is a necessary component for strength gains, hypertrophy, and neuro-control. When performed correctly, there is a learned concept to blocked training and enhances movement patterns, but to a limit, as the repetitiveness does not promote the randomness of movement variability.
As an outdoor training specialist, I recognize our most popular client workout , hands down, is our SandBell® Boot Camp. This cardio busting and calorie scorching session is conducted on the shoreline and majestic dunes of Lake Michigan’s “Sunset Coast” in Southwest Michigan.
We are in the midst of the 2014 NBA playoffs, inching closer and closer to the finals and the heat is on! So far the Indiana Pacers are tied against the Heat—why do I highlight the Indiana Pacers? They are one of the NBA teams that have used our Hyperwear® SandBell® in training, along with the Houston Rockets and the Philadelphia 76ers. The use of our SandBells amongst these notable NBA teams started back around 2010.
