Week 4 is all about upping the intensity with asymmetrical training. This is an upper focused workout, where we’re alternating sides, and adding in an isometric hold. Hello CORE engagement. Hello muscular BURN!
Asymmetrical training, as the name suggests, involves working with imbalances in the body. Unlike traditional symmetric exercises, where both sides of the body work in harmony, asymmetrical training focuses on creating an imbalance, which in turn unlocks a myriad of benefits.
Here are some reasons why you should consider incorporating asymmetrical training into your fitness arsenal:
Stability and Core Strength: Asymmetrical training pushes your body to stabilize itself while performing exercises. Whether it’s lifting a kettlebell with one arm or using a single leg for balance, these movements engage your core muscles like never before. This not only strengthens your core but also enhances overall stability, reducing the risk of injuries in everyday life.
Real-World Application: Our daily activities often require us to use one side of our body more than the other. Whether you’re carrying groceries, playing a sport, or even just walking, asymmetrical movements mimic the real-life scenarios we encounter. By training with imbalances, you’re better prepared for these everyday challenges.
Functional Strength: Traditional symmetric training has its merits, but asymmetrical training introduces functional strength. It’s not just about looking good; it’s about being strong in a practical way. Asymmetrical exercises improve your ability to perform daily tasks with ease and confidence.
Mind-Body Connection: Asymmetrical training requires heightened focus and concentration. You can’t go on autopilot while doing these exercises. Your brain and body must work together in perfect harmony. This not only boosts cognitive function but also helps in achieving mindfulness.
Preventing Plateaus: If you or your clients have hit a plateau in your fitness journey, asymmetrical training can provide a much-needed breakthrough. The new challenges it presents can jumpstart muscle growth and improve overall fitness levels.
Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation: For individuals recovering from injuries, asymmetrical training can be a game-changer. It allows you to focus on strengthening one side while giving the injured side a chance to heal. Gradually, you can work toward symmetry, making it a safe and effective approach for rehabilitation.
Diversity and Fun: Let’s face it, the same old routine can get boring. Asymmetrical training adds variety to your workout sessions. It’s exciting, dynamic, and will keep your clients engaged and excited to show up for their workouts.
Inclusivity: Asymmetrical training is highly adaptable. It can be tailored to suit people of all fitness levels and abilities, making it a fantastic option for clients with varying needs and goals.
So, how do you start incorporating asymmetrical training into your fitness routines? Begin by introducing simple, single-limb exercises, like one-arm kettlebell swings, single-leg deadlifts, or one-arm push-ups. Gradually progress to more complex movements as your clients become more comfortable and proficient.
