Functional Body Conditioning Circuits
Maximize the release of fat burning hormones and metabolic rate for the 48 hours following each fat torching Functional Body Conditioning Circuits at the bottom of this article. Excellent performance and accelerated recovery create even greater fat burning opportunities with fresh training venues using short sessions a couple times per week. Most of our clients perform a total of five well planned exercise sessions per week including three compact weight training workouts. Five total metabolic and fat burning hormonal activations each week combined with accelerated recovery create a peak rate of fat burning around the clock.

Functional Body Conditioning Circuits
The resort gym where these videos were filmed had a line out the door waiting for various cardio machines. None of the visitors wanted anything to do with the tire flip, rope hold or medicine ball work as they look and very much are inherently extremely challenging. The tire flip can be a great venue for a wide variety of people pending their injury status and the weight of the tire. A heavy medicine ball can offer the same whole body conditioning benefits while adding extra grip work.
Find a strip of fifty to one hundred yards to perform Functional Body Conditioning Circuits. Execute with a hurried pace to cover the distance as outlined in the program below. Initially just two times up and down the field will seem extremely difficult which is perfectly normal and a great signal to the body to burn a huge number of calories. Our clients build up the training volume over time as their nutrition and recovery protocols support their needs. As quality begins to diminish it is time to stop that particular movement and move on to the next.
99% of people can invest in some medicine balls to perform a number of functional movements at home or a local park. However leaving your comfort zone while using the proper form will be necessary to break into low levels of body fat and great conditioning.
Strive for five
Most clients will maximize rates of body fat loss and conditioning by performing three weight training and two Functional Body Conditioning Circuits per week. Additional core work is rarely needed since the functional exercises involved in all training sessions provide abdominal and lower back muscles with tremendous stimulation. The five total sessions combined with accelerated recovery by using the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder around training supports a peak rate of fat burning around the clock.
Holding yourself in place on a thick rope is much harder than it appears when done correctly. Keep at least a twenty degree bend in the elbows to reduce joint stress. Retract and depress the shoulder blades to support the proper form for a static hold position. Use your legs to provide stability and support only as needed to the challenge remains with the grip and back muscles.
Medicine Ball Slams and Chest Throw
Slam the ball as hard as you can on the ground before re gripping the ball to blast the target. Keep an athletic knee bend throughout the set and focus on proper core engagement. It is important to select a medicine ball that will have minimal bounce to avoid hitting you as it comes up from the ground. Pick a visual target far in front of you to prevent bounce back in your direction. The chest throw should be explosive in nature to recruit upper body and core muscles.
