Equipment makes a big difference when you’re doing squats, especially with heavy weights. I’m about to reveal a few of the things you can do to improve training squats.
Chest and triceps work-out. Finding it difficult to figure out a good type of work out schedule for yourself? Start with chest and triceps. A normal schedule would appear like this:
»Warm up on treadmill or any cardio machine for about 15 minutes
» Followed by lower ab workouts (at least 3-5 workouts)
» Flat Bench Press (3 x 10-12)
» Seated 1-arm Dumbbell Extensions (3 x 10 with both arms)
» Incline Bench Press (3 x 10)
» Lying Barbell Extensions (3 x 10-12)
» Decline Bench Press (3 x 10)
» Seated 2-arm Dumbbell Extensions (3 x 10)
» Warm down on treadmill or any cardio machine for 15-20 minutes.
Choose comfortable sneakers
The purpose of the sneakers is equal to the distribution of your body weight, and support for your foot. But doing squats you are pushing the weight from below upwards. So the sneaker with the pad can lead to instability.
You should use the shoe with the hard sole. Yet shoes for weightlifting is the proper choice. A big plus with shoes for weightlifting is a hard bottom and raised heel that puts you in an ergonomic position for squats-allows you to expel from the toe to the more appropriate way.
Sneakers for running with ergonomic position
Let me stress that buying a good shoe is more important than any other piece of running gear you will buy. With of course for women a good sports bra for support. Be prepared even at the cheaper running stores to pay 90 – 150 dollars for shoes. So for a dollar a day, skip the coffee by running shoes.
For running shoes, I would absolutely recommend a good pair of Asics. I’ve put well over 1000 miles into mine before I retired them.
Fitness shoes allow you to push through the rod much easier, which will allow you to produce more force during a exercise. When you work out, especially during leg exercises you have to feel sturdier during heavy squats, deadlifts...
Depending on the distance you want to run your shoes should last 400 – 600 miles. Even at a modest 20 miles a week (ex. 3 miles a day) the shoes will last 6 months if you take care of them.
Why should you go running without the right, protective footwear?
If you get the wrong shoe, you risk experiencing pain and even potential injury, when you run. With running, the shoes really are your big (and theoretically, only necessary) investment.
Performing low-intensity bodyweight exercises can be an effective way to build strength while also raising the heart rate. Best part about cardio is an great cardio workout can be done in gym (or living room!) Check how!
A proper fitting will include a gait analysis while you run to determine how you pronate…and then based on this information, fit you with the right stability/neutral/etc. type of shoe.
