Movement Based Exercise – Put a Creative Spin on Your Fitness Program

I want to say that a key element in the very thing that I like to refer to as my “strength culture” concerns the application of utilizing body movements within an effective strength and conditioning program. True fitness can be obtained from the art of moving the body and having the individual learn how to control their own resistance or an applied load through a series of movements. Being creative is a requirement when trying to formulate a workout that is both effective and challenging.

A good example of adding this additional creative “spin” to a workout can be through something as simple as a squat. Most anyone can execute an ordinary free standing squat. Now to progress this specific exercise to something of a more challenging nature one can attempt to squat by adding an additional weight or load. Most people would think of doing something like a traditional barbell back squat. For me I would like to take a different and more “creative” route by including a kettlebell. You can perform a variation of the front squat by performing a kettlebell clean first and then squatting with the weight in hand. Now this is a fairly dynamic spin on the squat, but if I really wanted to add to the exercise I would perform a clean, then press the bell overhead, and then squat with the kettlebell above my head! This is truly a dynamic way to force more body control and overall stability.

Take the time to learn new movements! Learn to focus on being dynamic in your strength training and you will obtain huge results. Feel free to search more of my articles on the explanation of my “strength culture.”
