Suspension Training Feature

Nikol Klein Human TrainerHave you tried suspension training yet? I love suspension training as it is a great way to use your own body weight for a fun and effective workout without putting stress on the joints! Best of all it is portable and gives you a full-body resistance and cardiovascular workout. Great for all levels of fitness too.

I am so excited to be the featured user for The Human Trainer for the month of April. I have been working with the company and the device for over a year now, having the opportunity to test the suspension trainer with my clients. Don’t confuse this device with TRX though, it has much more versatility and options. The dual anchor system allows for better symmetry and balance, and if you are like me who goes to the chiropractor each week to get fine tuned, you will appreciate this!

The Human Trainer is a terrific tool for those of you who like to workout at home! This device can be securely anchored to a door in your home. I have had many clients purchase these from me because they love working out with them on their days off with me and/or stretching out those sore muscles with the device! I have to admit, it is pretty handy to have.

Be sure to check out my article all about why I love to use Human Trainer with my clients! READ MORE

Isolate Your Biceps!

This week’s “Train-hard Tuesday” tip is all about the Biceps. Your body adapts to doing the same exercises all of the time, so be sure to switch it up next time with this exercise that isolates the biceps, big time!

©Nikol Klein BicepsTry this exercise with lighter weight than you would normally curl and perform 12-15 repetitions, 3 times. Be sure to keep your shoulder planted firmly on the bench to keep from using momentum to curl the weight. Comment below and let me know how it goes!

Ultimate Booty Boost Workout

This week’s click and print workout is the Ultimate Booty Boost. You will be targeting the glutes with three different exercises: Single leg glute bridge, single leg box squats, and bench step ups. These three exercises combined will fire up all areas of the glutes and have your tush feeling tight.
