Training

All the training sessions featured on the blog can be found here.  Typically, they are one of two types:  traditional strength training or metabolic acceleration training. 

Strength training is the mack daddy of awesomeness.  It composes the majority of my weekly training sessions.  It promotes lean muscle mass whose favorite hobby is burning fat and giving you sexy curves.  As the name implies, it creates strength which allows you do accomplish all your daily activities with ease, such as loading all the kids and their accessories in the car in T-2 seconds or being the only one who can walk the next day at work after the season's first company softball game.  It also is great for bone health.  You may not be thinking about it in the present, but some day your 75-year-old self will thank you.  Check out some sample strength training programs:



Metabolic acceleration training, or "cardio strength training", is far superior to traditional aerobics.  This type of training burns an insane amount of calories all while maintaining lean muscle mass.  Countless studies have shown this type of training burns more fat while still maintaining aerobic capacity when compared to traditional aerobics.  And it often takes far less time.  A challenging resistance level (through weights or bodyweight), short or negative rest periods, and circuits are characteristic of metabolic sessions.  Here are some to get you started:   



*Always consult your physician before starting an exercise program.  Additionally, it is highly recommended to consult a reputable fitness professional to learn proper form.  Any exercise can result in injury if done incorrectly.  Taking part in this and any program is done so at your own risk.  Amanda Kopeski will not be held liable for anything other than awesome results.  Listen to your body and don't do anything stupid.
