TRAIN * COMPETE * WIN
Underground Strength Training
Underground Strength Training is the hottest and newest craze in fitness. Tires, kettlebells, sandbags and much more are used to increase strength and power.
Underground Strength Training – Subculture Of Beliefs
Being an underground group is a euphemism for a subculture with unifying beliefs. The subculture could be related to politics or music or religion. But it is usually a tight group of people that believe in their cause with a passion.
If you believe in exercising and developing strength, there is no reason to go underground. Strength training is a subject that is not whispered about behind closed doors or in dark tunnels. It is a current health issue topic that has value for everyone.
Underground Strength Training – Radical Change
Often a subculture has radical views, which is one reason why they go underground. Strength training is viewed as radical exercise by some, but the truth is it is just good physical conditioning sense. You can always become a radical and workout with weights for hours every day.
But the average person does not have the time or desire for such an intensive program. What they want is strength training that conditions and tone and provides basic good health.
- Maximum muscle strength related to good physical condition
- Strength endurance
- Muscle Flexibility
- Balance and coordination
Many want good muscle tone, but not bulging muscles. But there are men and women who need high intensity strength training. If there were an underground group of exercise radicals, they might sign up!
- Athletes in all sports who compete to win
- Bodybuilders who emphasize large muscles
- Weight lifters who need maximum strength to lift the greatest number of pounds
- Exercisers who are advanced and always looking for a challenge for self-improvement
Underground Strength Training – Guerrilla Warfare
Political groups often go underground. Strength training is part of their regimen for preparedness. You are not a guerrilla, and you aren’t preparing for war. But what you are doing is preparing to become fit. Most of us need to start with the basics.
- Tighten glutes with squats and leg presses
- Strengthen calves with bent knee calf raises
- Target abdomen core muscles with crunches and curls
- Strengthen quadriceps with leg extensions
- Improve posture with back muscle strengthening planks
- Improve hip flexibility with leg lifts
- Strengthen chest muscles with push-ups or bench presses
- Develop arm strength with curls and kickbacks
If you were one of the radical exercisers underground, strength training would involve an assortment of conventional and unconventional routines that push your muscles to the limit.
But for a daily exercise regimen for the average person, strength training does not require a lot of fancy equipment. It does require an understanding of the muscles in the body.
Strength training is for everyone. There is traditional training done in the gym, or there are the more intense programs that push bodies to the limit. Whichever program you choose, above or underground, strength training equates to being fit for life.
