Strength and conditioning are essential parts of a successful workout session and fitness training. You cannot get the most out of your program if your body is not ready for each phase of your workout. Same as hydrating and stretching, strength and conditioning need to go hand in hand when planning a workout program. Personal trainers, and coaches in general, need to have proper training to properly evaluate and create an effective program for everyone.

Sequencing Exercises

Have you heard the say, you need to crawl before you can walk? In the fitness training world, one of the most important things you can do is learn how to sequence exercises. You cannot start with an aggressive work out, without first, preparing your body for it. At Lexington Avenue Gym, we are committed to help you understand your body and how you can start a workout routine that is tailored to your needs. However, understanding sequence, will elevate your energy level and overall performance. Let’s look at one key element to understand this concept.

Your Central Nervous System

Most of the people relate strength and conditioning with heavy lifting. Although, mostly true, we also practice strength and conditioning during yoga, Pilates and many other exercises. One key component when programming our bodies, it is the central nervous system. Important lifts or movements that require high degree of technique use the CNS to send impulses to the muscles quickly. This way the movements occur at a speed that is useful for the mover and safe for the body. If we don’t sequence properly, injuries can take place.

Avoiding Fatigue

No matter what style of training you use, we always want to avoid feeling tired, dizzy or fatigue too soon. Besides, drinking plenty of fluids, eating a healthy diet and wearing appropriate clothing, sequencing our exercises will help avoid fatigue. Always try to have proper rests intervals, along with proper sequencing to increase the energy and be able to store some energy for longer workouts. Our trainers at Lex Ave, are certified and experienced. We will ensure safety first to prepare you for a successful routine.
