Often, we need to improve coordination and flexibility to avoid injury.
Today, I want to review the 3 “unknown” metabolism boosters from this week’s articles. You can start using these right away to help improve coordination so you can potentially double your results and effectiveness from every repetition you perform. This way, you will stimulate more muscle, and burn more fat and calories.
Karen and I both use all three of these methods every time we resistance train.
Metabolic Ignition Sequence #1: Contraction Control
Every time you perform a repetition make sure you squeeze and contract
the individual muscle group you’re training.
Like I mentioned earlier this week, pausing at the top and bottom of your
movements for a few seconds is a great way to “feel” the muscle so you
stimulate more fibers.
Over time, this will give you greater full-body-muscle-control that will
bring out sexy curves, muscle definition and lead to rapid strength gains.
Metabolic Ignition Sequence #2: Strategic ROM
This can be a little tricky, but strategic range of motion can greatly
enhance the amount of muscle tissue you stimulate on every rep,
which means way more fat and calories burned throughout your entire workout.
So make sure you get a full stretch on the negative (lowering), and
a full contraction on the positive (lifting) portion on every exercise you perform.
Note: There are sometimes exceptions to this rule like pump sets, forced
reps, or negatives, but 95% of the time you should be using Strategic ROM.
Caution: There’s a big difference between a healthy muscle burn and a painful
limitation, so make sure you listen to your body and focus on the “good” hurt
when applying a full range of motion.
Metabolic Ignition Sequence #3: Improve Coordination
If you’re not coordinated, you risk injury and you’ll never be able to maximally
contract your muscles or get the proper ROM from your exercises. You MUST improve coordination!
Make sure you master basic exercises first. Then, after you get more coordinated, you can move to more advanced exercises.
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.
You can clearly see the girl on the left has sloppy form,so she’s not able
to contract properly, which means way LESS fat and calories burned. She needs
to improve coordination.
Remember, your muscles don’t know the difference between heavy resistance and light resistance.
The results you get are solely determined by “how” you perform the exercise…or lift and lower the weight.
So by using all three of these MiS secrets when training, (Contractions, ROM and improving coordination) you can easily double the amount of muscle fibers you stimulate and greatly increase overall calorie burning from EVERY workout.
Give these a shot today.

Like I mentioned previously, Karen and I use all three of these training “tweaks” every time we exercise.
In fact, Karen ROCKS at this stuff. I swear she trains harder and more intense than most guys half her age.
Gotta love it…”girl power” : )
