The Essential Lifts for Health, Energy, and Recomposition

As I was preparing the  training plan for a client today, I decided to list the essential lifts for health, energy, and recomposition in order of importance.

I reserve the right to change this order, but these are the lifts I want all of my clients and Sugar Freedom readers to learn.

I will simply list them today, but in the future I will go into the power of these lifts in detail.

  1. The Squat
  2. The Push-Up
  3. The Deadlift
  4. The Row
  5. The Plank
  6. The McGill Sit Up
  7. The Bicep Curl
  8. The Calf Raise
  9. The Tricep Extension
  10. The Lunge

There you have it: these are my top ten.  I’m printing these out and heading to my training session, and I can’t wait to explore each one with you.

Tired of Pushing Yourself, and Not Getting Results? Try RBT.

I have been using Rest Based Training, RBT for short, ever since I started studying to be a working dancer.

The following article by Jade Teta contains an excellent description of this technique.

For years I wondered why dance class and performance would make me leaner, stronger, and more energetic, while traditional aerobic exercise would make me tired and hungry.

RBT explains how strategic rest, instead of pushing for endurance, can help us to train more effectively, and get amazing results.

To experience Rest Based Training yourself, come take class with me at Dance at the Dome: 251 B. Baretta St. in Sonora, or e-mail me for a consultation: catherine@sugarfreedom.com
