want to change... So I offer a workout plan and different options such as Pilates, yoga, relaxation and meditation to help you improve your wellness.

Focusing on only certain muscles promotes muscle imbalances and increases the risk of injury.

It is important to know which muscles are working when performing a movement, and how to perform that movement safely and efficiently.

To do this, here are explanations for each of the equipment training exercises (stabilization ball and free weights).

  • FENTES
  • HANK EXTENSION WITH BALL
  • Recumbent Development
  • INCLINED TRUNK RAMP
  • ABDOMINAL SPLINE

Why train with a stabilization ball

.
Many health professionals use a stabilization ball instead of a bench press to help further develop the stabilizing muscles that support the joints. Working with a stabilization ball conditions the mind as well as the body, as you become aware of your posture and movement, whether you are dancing or lifting a baby. Good posture allows you to move better, be more agile and prevent injury.

.

Be careful and keep your focus when using the ball!

The Ball and Pilates
Finding your balance on a ball may seem obvious, but if you can't do it, you won't be able to do any exercise properly. To successfully keep your balance, you need strong, hardened abdominal muscles.

Pilates, a system of exercises developed by Joseph Pilates, develops and strengthens the core (the abdominal belt). This training method can help build awareness of one's posture and correct muscle imbalances.

Initiating yoga: an invitation to self-discovery!
There are many reasons to do yoga. For example, one may want to increase flexibility, counteract the harmful effects of stress on one's body, find serenity, or awaken to spirituality.

All of these reasons can be found in yoga.

Although the practice of yoga is a lifetime endeavor, it is possible to start slowly, a little at a time. When approached in this way, self-knowledge is a fascinating and satisfying process of discovery!

Relaxation and meditation: complementing physical activity
Relaxation is an essential part of any process to achieve optimal health. Meditation can calm our minds, open our hearts, and provide well-documented physical benefits.

Relaxation and Meditation: Complementing Physical Activity
.

Exercise is an opportunity to reconnect with yourself and become aware of your breath. Use movement and exercise as a way to get in touch with the deeper parts of yourself, and to more fully and easily enjoy the present moment.

To start off on the right foot!

Yes, it is possible to maintain a healthy lifestyle and motivate yourself to move every day! Did you know that regular physical activity is more than just a way to stay in shape and maintain your muscle mass? Being active can have extremely positive consequences on the whole body

including preventing disease, increasing immunity, and providing more energy for everyday life.

Of the benefits of physical activity listed below, I invite you to check off the ones you would like to enjoy:

  • Body weight management
  • Increased muscle strength, balance and coordination
  • Increased life expectancy
  • Better resistance to stress
  • Reduced risk of chronic disease
  • Temptuous, isn't it?

That's why I invite you to...
...get back in shape!

Workout resolutions often prove to be short-lived, as the goal set is sometimes too difficult to achieve. To succeed, it's important to have a plan of action.

FIVE-STEP WINNING STRATEGY
Find the motivation.
What is the trigger that leads you to pursue such a goal? Do you want to achieve healthy gains, have more energy to play with the kids, put on your pants again from last year.

The goal is to get back to your best.

To avoid discouragement, have realistic expectations.
After achieving an initial goal, you will experience satisfaction that will allow you to take on greater personal challenges.

Integrate physical activity into your lifestyle.
Multiply the opportunities to move every day. Focus on activities that fit easily into your schedule. Also, focus on some variety that accommodates your preferences.

Have fun moving.
Get a taste for exercise. There's nothing better than finding a workout partner. The support of a loved one or friend will increase your chances of success. This encouraging presence will help keep you motivated!

Progress at your own pace.
By doing so, you will allow your body to adapt and avoid burnout and injury. Respect your limits. Keeping a logbook is a good way to gradually increase the intensity of your training. One step at a time, you will be able to push yourself!

HOW TO TAKE ACTION?
Haven't moved in a while? Walking is still the best way to gently incorporate exercise into your lifestyle, without rushing your body.

This activity is done in the morning and the afternoon.

This activity can be done anywhere and anytime. Start with a 15-minute session three times a week. After a few days, do an additional minute per session.

This is a great way to get in shape.

Then add daily sessions, so that you have five or six 30-minute sessions per week.

Most importantly, remember to pat yourself on the back after each session, as each one is a step toward success.

In the next column, I will discuss the various components of an exercise program: warm-up and cool-down, strength training, cardio and flexibility. I'll provide practical tips for those who want to get organized for success!

Moving will give you more vitality and improve your quality of life, believe me!

notamment en prévenant les maladies, en augmentant l’immunité et en procurant plus d’énergie au quotidien.

Parmi les bienfaits de l’activité physique énumérés ci-après, je vous invite à cocher ceux dont vous souhaiteriez profiter :

  • Gestion du poids corporel
  • Accroissement de la force musculaire, de l’équilibre et de la coordination
  • Hausse de l’espérance de vie
  • Meilleure résistance au stress
  • Réduction des risques de maladies chroniques
  • Tentant, n’est-ce pas?

Voilà pourquoi je vous invite à…
… vous remettre en forme!

Les résolutions d’entraînement s’avèrent souvent éphémères, car l’objectif fixé est parfois trop difficile à atteindre. Pour réussir, il est important d’avoir un plan d’action.

STRATÉGIE GAGNANTE EN CINQ ÉTAPES
Trouvez la motivation.
Quel élément déclencheur vous amène à poursuivre un tel but? Voulez-vous obtenir des gains santé, avoir plus d’énergie pour jouer avec les enfants, enfiler de nouveau votre pantalon de l’année dernière?

Pour éviter le découragement, ayez des attentes réalistes.
Après avoir atteint un premier objectif, vous connaîtrez une satisfaction qui vous permettra de relever de plus grands défis personnels.

Intégrez l’activité physique à votre mode de vie.
Multipliez les occasions de bouger tous les jours. Privilégiez les activités qui s’intègrent aisément à votre horaire. Misez aussi sur une certaine variété qui tient compte de vos préférences.

Ayez du plaisir à bouger.
Prenez goût à faire de l’exercice. Il n’y a rien de mieux que de trouver un partenaire d’entraînement. Le soutien d’un proche ou d’un ami augmentera vos chances de réussite. Cette présence encourageante vous aidera à garder votre motivation!

Progressez à votre rythme.
Ce faisant, vous permettrez à votre corps de s’adapter et d’éviter l’épuisement et les blessures. Respectez vos limites. La tenue d’un journal de bord est un bon moyen d’augmenter progressivement l’intensité de votre entraînement. Un pas à la fois, vous serez en mesure de vous dépasser!

COMMENT PASSER À L’ACTION?
Vous ne bougez pas depuis belle lurette? La marche reste le meilleur moyen d’intégrer l’exercice en douceur à votre mode de vie, sans brusquer votre corps.

Cette activité se pratique en tout lieu et en tout temps. Commencez par une séance de 15 minutes trois fois par semaine. Après quelques jours, faites une minute de plus par séance.

Ajoutez ensuite des séances quotidiennes, de manière à en obtenir cinq ou six de 30 minutes par semaine.

Surtout, n’oubliez pas de vous féliciter après chaque séance, car chacune représente un pas vers le succès!

Dans la prochaine chronique, j’aborderai les diverses composantes d’un programme d’exercices : échauffement et retour au calme, musculation, cardio et flexibilité. Je fournirai des trucs pratiques à l’intention de ceux et celles qui veulent bien s’organiser pour réussir!

Bouger vous donnera plus de vitalité et améliorera votre qualité de vie, croyez-moi!

Getting in shape with a strength training program

Each fitness program contains five exercises to engage the major muscle groups. Focusing only on certain muscles helps to encourage muscle imbalances and increase the risk of injury.

All of these exercises are designed to help you get in shape.

Using the color coding, you are able to recognize the muscle area being challenged by the exercise you are performing. It is important to know how to recognize which muscles are working when performing a movement and how to do it safely and effectively.

So, here are the photos and explanations of each of the exercises in the workout sheet without equipment, just your body weight.

SQUAT

Place both feet parallel hip-width apart and stabilize the trunk by contracting the abs. Bend the knees to a 90 degree angle. Then return to the starting position.

Caution : Keep the knees above the toes.

HANK EXTENSION

Lie on your back, place your arms on either side of your body and bend your knees. Lift the hips to form a straight line between the trunk, buttocks and thighs. Slowly and with good control of your movements, raise and lower the hips.

POMPS ON KNEES

Knees on the ground, place hands on the ground directly under the shoulders. Stabilize the trunk by contracting the abdominals.

Important : Be sure to perform each movement and handle the equipment safely. Respect your limits as too much fatigue can increase the risk of injury.

It's important.

Lower yourself toward the ground, until the elbow angle reaches 90 degrees. Contract the muscles to return to the starting position.

Caution : Do not lock the elbows at the end of the movement.
