Skinny Muscle Person
If you’re not sure what skinny fat means, it’s a term that describes someone who has a normal weight and BMI for their height, but considerably more body fat and not enough muscle mass than is advised for optimal health.
You see them everywhere in advertising. Muscled, buffed, smooth hard bodies are proclaiming that the only way to look good is if you have the right muscle! Which body type do you prefer, the skinny guy, or the big muscular body. Of course, there is only one way to find out the right answer.
The McDonalds scale says that you are a muscle person. You are inactive until you are 18, and you burn up about 110 calories while you are sitting. While you are 18-22, you are building 105 extra calories a day. So between the ages of 18-22, you are actually reducing about ½ of a pound of fat a week, and you are burning up about ½ of a pound of fat a week.
So what do you do? You decide that you must be on the right track and just with patience, and you are sure to try next year. Or next month. That is what most people do. They wait for all of the free weights to be taken away, or they wait for the bench press to be added to the mix of exercises. Waiting is not a happy option.
What is the right workout?
Here are some of the recommended methods.
Seated overhead presses: ills just like a standard overhead press except that you are sitting with your back straight and your shoulders back and your feet placed shoulder-width apart.
This gives you training uniformity and Balance potential. If you have some difficulty lying flat on the ground, then placing the feet directly under the thighs guarantees balance and an ancient age will not attack you. Most importantly, you will be able to hold the overhead press comfortably with both hands, regardless of how weak you may be.
Giantools: Cause now that you are able to lift relatively heavy weights, your arms have to do the work. A good exercise is to block a giant ball filled with 25% of your body weight, and squatting will add difficulty to the normal factor 2-3 pounds.
Another way to work the giantools is to step up with each foot fully extended, place weights behind the head, and lift. Steps with legs are definitely the most effective, but a single leg motion filled with eccentric contractions will work the entire body.
Use every stronger exercise you find in the gym. Training will build your muscle endurance, and with that comes the ability to lift increasingly more. here’s distribute bodyweight to all areas of your body. Lift heavier for reps because you are taxing every muscle until it teaches you a different tone and range of motion. You will be amazed at what you can do with a relatively lightweight.
Failure feels like we are in a tunnel of expectations when we lift. We have to be aware of what we are thinking and breathing before the lifting begins. We have to be focused fully before the pressing starts. It is obvious that we have to have intensity in our sport or else we will not maintain records. It is obvious also that we have to work hard if we really want to improve on our lifting. It is also obvious that we have to be able to quickly recover from shortness of breath or a heart attack.
Use all of my examples above in your own workouts. You will be amazed at what you can lift if you follow certain concepts. The key is thinking and breathing like an aDEADhorsebeforeyou picking up those heavyweights.
