Bodyweight Squat Exercise
Squats without an external load are a great way to warm up your legs during a functional warm-up, or strengthen your legs if you are just starting a new workout routine. Squatting is a fundamental movement that everyone should be able to do efficiently and pain free. You will develop strength in all muscle groups of the hips and legs including calves, quadriceps, hamstrings, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, hip flexors and even your low back and core. Typically it is advised that you squat down until the thigh is parallel to the floor. More experienced squatters may choose to squat as low as possible (a deep squat) which has the benefit of a larger range of motion, but one should use caution not to strain the knees and back. ️WATCH THE VIDEO ON OUR WEBSITE, link in bio.

Boxing (or shadowboxing) is a great way to increase your upper body explosiveness, timing and power. Not to mention increasing your ability to defend yourself. Typically one will throw several “jabs” with their left arm – setting up a “knock out punch” with a right cross. Many combinations can be used, but the basics are jab, jab, cross (L, L, R). This is a great way to warm up, increase your heart rate and improve your overall body awareness.

eziahp The bicycle is an excellent way to boost your heart rate and increase your leg strength too. For people who love to run (or hate to run) but can’t handle the excessive pounding, the bike offers a great alternative with out the impact. Upright bikes are recommended over recumbent bikes as they are far more functional. And to increase the overall intensity we suggest standing while you pedal periodically or in intervals for time. The bike can be utilized for extended periods of time as a cardiovascular tool, or in short bursts combined with other modalities more like high intensity interval training. 2mon

eziahp The Kotchen family works hard and plays hard as a family unit. Mom and dad, Andrew and Emily, are working-out together to stay in shape and increase their overall strength and endurance. Emily is a big runner and she added strength training to her routine with EZIA. She is looking and feeling great as well as experiencing improvements in her run time due to her new found strength. The little ones Grace and William are in the gym having fun and getting their energy out, with dreams and aspirations of a career in softball/baseball and basketball one day. We love their positive infectious attitude and energy in the gym. It is a pleasure to be training with the Kotchen family this summer! 4mon

eziahp Stand in a bent over position with weight in front of you
Pull the weight to the midsection, maintain a flat posture
maintain control while lowering weight to start position

The 'Bent Row' exercise is designed to strengthen your back, and is a very functional version of the exercise because you are standing on two feet and must stabilize with your core while performing the lift (as opposed to sitting on a machine with your chest braced against a pad, etc). The key is to ensure your back and spine are not moving during the lift, and that your torso is perpendicular to the ground. Sometimes people stand up too tall and then it becomes an upright row that doesn't target your back strength, but rather your shoulders. This lift can be made to be especially challenging if you actually place the free-weights on the ground between each lift, sort of like a dead lift. Make sure you are not overloading your lower back, but rather stabilizing the load with your legs and core strength.

eziahp Barrier Jump - The barrier jump is a high intensity exercise that will help develop total body explosive power as well as the ability to decelerate at high speeds. This is basically a broad jump over an object like a box or hurdle. The focus should be jumping as high and far as possible from a standing start. Tucking the knees up in the air will help you clear the object. A soft and athletic landing is paramount, you should not hear a loud thud. Flex your knees on impact to absorb the landing forces in your legs (as opposed to in your stiff knee joint).
Stand with an object in front of you
Jump over the object, swing your arms and tuck your legs
Land softly in a squat position on the other side

eziahp Rob Goldrich has been training with us during the summertime on Nantucket for the last 5 years. We don't see him much during the year when he is in NYC but he keeps up his training with the help of other trainers. Rob works out 5x a week with us here at EZIA Nantucket, and he usually does a second workout on his own later in the day. Usually we are focused on very functional training and conditioning for Rob, and he does some strength training during the second workout. We do a lot of explosive lifting together with him because the lifts require more coaching to do properly. Overall, Rob is in excellent shape but looking to lose 5-10lbs this summer and "tone up" in addition to being pain free and fit for playing tennis/squash etc. We track all of Rob's biometric statistics, goals, and workouts in our online program, so he can check in from time to time and we can set new program goals as his focus changes over time... Rob is a very hard worker in the gym, and is always on time which is a sign of someone who is really present and not just going through the paces. Every summer Rob gets into his best shape of the year with us, mostly because he really has the time and ability to focus on it for a few months before heading back to the city where life and work can sometimes get in the way of training. 5mon
