How To Maximize Your Training

There are so many "coaches" on social media who want to help you achieve your fitness goals by having you join their team or take a supplement. Most often, time and money are wasted on "unlocking the secret" yet you're still trying to learn how it is you're supposed to maximize your training.

There's more to working out than just picking up a weight. In order to maximize your training, the creation of a strength training classification system is needed. This helps to maximize the development of yourself, a client or athlete. Fundamental movement patterns also need to be defined in order to build framework.

This means when it comes to approaching exercise selection and program design, it's important to go through movement pattern archetypes, baseline movements, and progressions to fully understand where to start and how to progress in order to achieve your specific goals.

Proper strength training techniques not only involve being able to see the correct movement, but feel it as well- sensory and motor components are key to maximizing training!
