Skimble’s Program Spotlight: Plyometrics

Plyometrics_1_programspotlight_1Simply said, plyometrics are exercises that include some type of jumping element. Plyometrics are often quick, explosive, fast movements that use more energy than typical strength training exercises. The benefit to plyometric training is that it can boost your muscle power and strength, improve your balance and make you more agile. These are all abilities sought after by many top athletes in all sports!

Plyometrics + introduces you to plyometric type exercises, like hopping, jumping, burpees and ice skaters, while still incorporating more traditional exercises. Plyometrics ++ combines plyometric exercises, like box jumps, jumping lunges, and single leg hops, with traditional strengthening exercises to start challenging your coordination. Plyometrics +++ is a mix of plyometric movements, with other strength and dynamic endurance exercises. To get the most out of these programs you need to be explosive and sharp with your movements! In all three programs some workouts are lighter on the plyometric type exercises to give your muscles time to recover.

Get dynamic and let your inner athlete shine with Plyometrics! You can get lifetime access to these programs for $9.99 each or Go PRO+ to gain access to all of our custom training programs in Workout Trainer.

Skimble’s Program Spotlight: Functional Fitness

Functional_Fitness_3_programspotlight_1Functional fitness is all about training your muscles to help you function outside of the gym. It means working out to be adaptable, dynamic and ready for whatever the world has to throw at you – like those heavy grocery bags that you have to carry up 2 flights of stairs! Functional training uses multi-directional, multi-joint and multi-muscle exercises to get your whole body working together. The keys to being functionally fit are muscle strength, balance and agility. Doing exercises for these key areas will also give you a bonus benefit of core stability!

The Functional Fitness 1.0 program will teach you some new functional exercises, as well you will see that many common exercises that you may already do are also considered functional. The moderate level Functional Fitness 2.0 program incorporates some complex moments to challenge your muscle coordination. Whereas Functional Fitness 3.0 takes it to the next level with some advanced exercises that will be sure to challenge your body and mind!

Training with a kettlebell is a great way to build muscle strength, ultimately leading to an increase in your lean muscle tissue and decrease in your body fat. How does this happen? Many kettlebell exercises are dynamic movements that require you to use several muscle groups together. The more muscles you are working and the more lean tissue you create, then the higher your metabolism will be and the more fat your body will burn. Kettlebell: Lean is a moderate program packed with some staple kettlebell exercises, as well as some ‘out of the box’ kettlebell movements to keep you on your toes.
