Our Liquid Core® Gums are packed with a Flavor Explosion and we want your workouts to be the same!
When it comes to working out, preparing the body can be just as if not more important than the workout itself.
During strength training, priming the muscles for action is key, and a great way to prime your muscles is through explosive exercises. Pairing the right explosive exercise for your warmup is beneficial for getting the most out of your body.
Using explosive exercises to prime the targeted muscle group helps recruit more muscle fibers, which in turn leads to more power output during your workout. The key is to do a few sets of low reps to make sure you are exerting maximum force. It is all about the mind muscle connection!
Try out these explosive exercises before your next workout:
Upper Body -
Do 4 Sets of 6 Reps
Med Ball Throws/Slams
- Stand tall with your feet hip width apart and hold the medicine ball above your head with your elbows slightly bent.
- Once you start the exercise you will bend forward dropping your shoulder height while contracting your torso and shifting your hips back.
- Drive the medicine ball into the ground letting go when the medicine ball is inline with your hips.
***Be aware so the ball does not come down and hit you in the face.
- Start in the standard pushup position.
- Lower your body so your chest is just above the floor.
- Push up as hard as you can to launch yourself from the floor, hands leaving the ground.
- Land back in the pushup position cushioning your decent.
Lower Body -
- Stand tall with your feet just outside your hips.
- Bring your arms forward with a bend in your elbows.
- Swing your hands back through your hips while entering a squat position.
- Swing your arms back through and launch yourself off your feet and into the air.
- Land as softly as possible.
- Sprint as hard as you can for 25 yards focusing on your drive and explosion.
***Note: When it comes to explosive exercises you must exert as much force as you can each time. Take time between each set to allow your body to recover from the previous set. If you rush your explosive exercises you won’t be able to exert maximum force.
