Fitness Tip#100 - April 23, 2012

Improve Quickness

For faster foot speed in sports, try this move: Start with your feet hip-width
apart and your hands at your sides. Lift your left foot in front of you, touch
it with your right hand, and lower it to the floor. Lift your right foot, touch it
with your left hand, and lower it. Then touch your left foot behind you with
your right hand, then your right foot behind you with your left hand. Go for
20 seconds at a time, moving as fast as you can, and repeat for a total of three to five sets.

Save Your Shoulders

Decrease the weight by 10 percent when you change your grip.
So if you've been benchpressing 135 pounds for 10 repetitions
with a medium grip, drop to 120 pounds when you switch to a
wide grip. You'll be stressing your joints and muscles in a different
way than they're used to, which can cause injury.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND SPARKERS!

Thank you for reading my tips! I hope some of them help :)

    Thanks. I'm just getting back into barbell bench press after a long stint with just dumbbells. I'll be able to use this advice.

Stretch for Strength

Between sets, take 20 to 30 seconds to stretch the
muscle you just worked. Boston researchers found
that men who did this increased their strength by 20 percent.

  A lady at my Zumba class told me to stretch before and after my class and also at home when I strength train. I never realized how important it is, thanks for the info.

Flatten Your Gut

Work your invisible abdominal muscles. Your transversus abdominis lies beneath your rectus abdominis—the six-pack muscle—and flattens your waistline when you suck in your gut. Work it with the vacuum: Pull your belly button toward your spine and hold for 10 seconds while breathing normally. Repeat five times.

Perform a Daily Positive Conditioning Ritual

Start each day with something positive – read something that inspires
you, listen to uplifting music, or download a fitness podcast. The key
is to consume something that empowers you towards your fitness
and nutrition goals. That way, you’ll put your best foot forward,
and won’t be leaving your outlook to chance.

I relate to this as being the same thing as focusing before your workouts. One of the ways that helps me before I workout is to check in on the "P90X BRING IT" Team to see how everyone is doing. I also do searches on "You Tube" for motivating and inspiring videos to get me focused and pumped. Find what works for you so you can give your workout 110%!
