Physical Training
By:
Post # 1
The muscles and how they work?
===========================

There are many other muscle groups however these are the ones I prefer to focus on the most

Biceps
Flex your arm at a 90 degree angle, the thing bumped up half way between the shoulder and your elbow is your bicep.

Triceps
Same as bicep except it is the muscle on the down side our your arm. These are always used together, the are what make your arms work. They are What you use when your life everyday items from books to bags, shoes. You use Them when you open doors, or even when you drinking bottles of soda pop, or the Redneck 16on works out.

Deltoids
Shoulders Place your arms at the side of you?re body, extending to the walls on the sides of your room, and your palms up. Now move your arms up into the air until your palms meet each other with a clapping sound, then take your arms back to the staring point. Repeat this exercise until you figure our muscle group I am referring to.

Pectoral Muscles
Your pecks commonly referred to for men or your breasts for woman

Full Back
There are several muscles groups however I will group them all together. The are all extremely important and need to be respected. I have missing bone fragments in my spinal column do to intense sparring, fighting and other such training. This sounds more painful then it is. Fortunately I worked the muscles in this area extremely well and these keeps me from being disabled, however in the morning I am extremely tight for about 1 hour before I start my daily activities

Abs
I am sure you have seen enough abs machines to know what this area is so I will skip over it. I will comment though if you are lucky enough to be skinny it always looks like you have a cool 6 pack.

Thighs
These are located from your hip to your knees on the inside and outside of your legs. They play apart in walking running, and leg strikes and blocks.

Quadriceps
Located from waist to knee on front of leg.

Hamstrings
These are in the same general area of your Quadriceps, except the are on the back of your legs.

Calves Muscles
Your calves are the muscles from the back of your knee to your foot.. These are extremely noticeable in soccer players. Due to all there running.

Heart
Moves the blood to circulate throughout the body Lungs The Lungs are the head of the respiration department, need for transporting oxygen to the heart. Much needed during cardio actives

The information provided above is very basic information. I highly advice those interesting in learning more about their muscles and other systems of the body to hit boarders book stores fitness section as well as wonderful websites of mens/womans health and so forth for more information as well as help setting up workout and eating plans and journals. It is also extremely important for everyone to check with their doctor before setting up a diet and exercise program. Most health clubs also have personal trainers that are there to help individuals set up training programs that will fit them. I am listing my personal training program that works well for me and most people who are just looking to tone your muscles, but again pardon the pun but every body is different and what works for one person may not work for everyone else. While I was a personal trainer the hardest part of my job was finding routines for each individual person. This program again is my own and was the basic program I used for people with simular goals, as a baseline and went from their on my clients issues, or concerns.

Home Workouts:
=============
So you can not get to the gym.

Ok we have a few ways we can go about training from here. We can use backpacks stuffed with books at weight you can control or 2 1 gallon milk jugs filled with a comfortable amount of water for you.

3 times a week
Upper body
Arm curls
Stand with feet shoulder distance apart. Arms out in front with your palms up, hands around handles. Bring your elbows down to one inch away from your hips. Now you are in position. Keeping your elbows in place move your hands up towards your shoulders. Either keep your palms facing up, or you can turn your wrists so your palms are facing each other. Lower down to starting position. Repeat 15 times rest for 30 sec. and go through a total of 3 times.

Arm extension
Stand with feet shoulder distance apart. Place hands around handles. Palms facing each other. Extend your arms over head. You want your elbows bent with your hands behind you. Gently move your hands up in the air so your arms are extended up, lower back down to starting position Repeat 15 times rest for 30 sec. and go through a total of 3 times.

Chest Press
Lay on your back. Have your hands around your devices handles elbows are bent and your hands are going toward you shoulders. Lift your arms up into the air. Lower down to repeat the exercise. Repeat 15 times rest for 30 sec. and go through a total of 3 times.

Fly?s and delts Sit on a chair hold milt jugs on each side of you. Extend your arms to either side of your body. Parallel to the ground. Now simple move your arms in out in front of you, to your arms going straight in front of you, bring back to starting position. Repeat 15 times rest for 30 sec. and go through a total of 3 times.

Every week you want to run for 5 minutes longer then you did the week before.
Exsample if you were only able to run for 5 minutes in week one run for 10 of the 30 minutes in week 2. So forth and so on until you get up to 30 minutes, you can keep adding 5 minutes until you get up to a hour if you like.
