Check out below some great full body exercise tips by our member Nathalia and trainer Rob.

Four Benefits of Total Body Workouts

  • Total body training improves workout efficiency by minimizing the fluff to get you strong and muscular in a hurry
  • You’ll hit major movement patterns multiple times per week in a variety of intensities and rep ranges to stimulate the most number of muscle fibers
  • When in a time-crunch, total body training is best for making huge strength gains when you’re short on time.
  • To simplify getting Strong, Lean, and Muscular.

Cross Mountain Climber

Start in high plank position with both feet on sliders. Pull right knee into chest and across your body, aiming for the left shoulder. Return to starting position and repeat on the other side.

Knee Tuck

Start in high plank position with both feet on sliders. Pull knees in to touch the chest. Focus on keeping your core tight, and don’t hike hips too high. Push feet back to extend into a high plank. Repeat.

Cross Knee Tuck

Similar to the first Knee Tuck, just this time pull the feet diagonal to the side.
Start in high plank position with both feet on sliders. Pull knees diagonal in to touch the chest. Focus on keeping your core tight, and don’t hike hips too high. Push feet back to extend into a high plank. Repeat.

Standing Military Barbell Press

The standing barbell shoulder press is an amazing exercise which targets a lot of muscle and increases the stability of your core.

The movement should be carried out in a full range of motion. Clear it from the rack, rest it on your upper chest, press the bar upward until your arms are extended overhead, lower it slowly, put on the rack. Remember, use full range of motion for maximal results.

Romanian Dead Lift

Hold a bar at hip level with a pronated (palms facing down) grip. Your shoulders should be back, your back arched, and your knees slightly bent. This will be your starting position. Lower the bar by moving your butt back as far as you can.  At the bottom of your range of motion, return the starting position by driving the hips forward to stand up tall.

Wide Pull-up

Grasp the bar with an overhand grip and begin from a
dead hang” (arms fully extended, about shoulder width apart). Pull up toward the bar by bending at the arms and clear it with your chin. Pause at the top of the exercise and then lower back down under control. Return to the starting position and repeat.

Carbohydrates are the major and primary fuel source for muscles and the brain. Carbohydrates are broken down into glucose which is the form that is used for energy by the body.

Carbohydrate foods include starchy foods like bread, rice, pasta, noodles, potato, corn, legumes, biscuits and cereals and all sugars including natural sugars found in fruit, milk and yoghurt.

Carbohydrates are stored in the muscles and liver and must be constantly replaced. Spreading small amounts of carbohydrates are a helpful way to provide the body with adequate stores without consuming excessive amounts. This can be achieved by consuming three small meals.

Healthy snacks may be beneficial to prevent excessive hunger between meals. By eating this way you will get smaller rises in your blood sugar levels over a longer period of time so that you are using the maximum amount though out the day, limiting excess building up and becoming stored in the body.

Do not skip meals is not ideal as it often results in food cravings and binge eating.

December 10, 2018

There are significant improvements on the way for the facility in 2019. The tough decision has been made to close the creche in its current form and add one or two additional group fitness rooms in its place. We appreciate some will be put out by this change, however the creche was extremely under-utilised. Adding yoga and pilates rooms will attract more visitations to this area. Further children’s activities will be added to the timetable. Watch this space on health club expansions in mid-2019.
