Exercise with Confidence - Video Library

 

                        Beginners

                                                 

We have teamed up with our Academic Partners within Sports Science, to spotlight some helpful coaching points relating to basic exercises for beginners within the gym. If you are unsure about certain technique's, this video library will become a really helpful online resource to educate our members on correct form, when attempting to perform specific exercises.

The main exercises in which Gym beginners routinely wish to master during the initial stages of engaging within the gym setting; are the Press Up, Plank and the Squat. Our Fitness Instructors Matthew and Tom, in addition to one of our Sports Science Academic Lecturers Eddie Caldow provide the coaching points, with Eddie's Sports Science Student's Dillion and Fiona performing the exercises.

Once our Students become more confident within the Gym Setting, and want to incorporate more complex and add compound exercises to their programs, we have spotlighted some of the most effective, with regards to energy expenditure and targeting multiple body parts. The Deadlift is an excellent compound exercise for engaging many muscles within the posterior chain, which Mike and Tom demonstrate below.
