Are you in the shape you want to be in?
Chances are you answered no, that’s what brought you here.
Hi Anna here,
If you’re wondering how to get a model body, with a method that won’t kill you, you’ve come to the right spot!
Because this is my uncensored F4X Workout story.
The ups, the downs; the stuff that didn’t work and finally the one thing that did help me achieve my personal goal of toning my body. Of finally being able to look in the mirror and smile.
When I started trying different fitness programs, I was slightly overweight and out of shape. Looking in the mirror did nothing but make me see it, going to work made me feel it.
You see, I’m a 54 year old woman with a very physical job. I work outside, in all kinds of weather.
You may think that would be enough. That I wouldn’t need a fitness program to get or stay in shape, unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Because of the nature of the job, there is a gym available to us free-of-charge at work. At one point, they even had a personal trainer on staff. We can use the gym any time that we are not on shift. Many of the people that I work with show up on days off, or hours early for work to be able to use the gym.
This doesn’t work for me. There’s so much going on in my life that I have never been able to fit in the extra 45 minutes that it takes me to drive one direction to the gym on days off.
I have tried a gym membership closer to home, with the same result. Just couldn’t fit it in to my schedule. At least, not on a regular basis.
So, I went the other way and invested in several pieces of home equipment. Now the proud owner of a BowFlex™, a Gazzelle™ and even a Little Gym™. I used them faithfully and had developed a full routine that was an excellent workout.
Each of these pieces gives an excellent workout, but they also take up a great deal of floor space. When my daughter moved home with her children, the children got the floor space.
WII Fit and Dance Party, PX90 and Zumba…
Again the children win. Either the TV or the floor space, even too late at night – it doesn’t matter, the result is the same.
So, like many equipment owners, each piece that I had so carefully chosen is now folded up or in pieces being stored! It was quite some time before I again looked in the mirror and was unhappy with what I saw. Again, looking for a fitness routine that would fit in with my current lifestyle.
FINALLY! I came across a system called Old School New Body.
The thing about f4x training systems that is different than other weight lifting programs is that the movements in this workout are paced. When you lift, instead of the normal up / down, you use a up / lower slowly movement to add the much needed resistance to the workout. I have always liked this method of working out, it just feels like it does more for you.
The muscle damage and soreness that results from the up and down type of workout is not as much a part of this type of workout. Any soreness that you experience is from much smaller tears and actually working the muscles instead of deep damage that occurs with most weightlifting programs.
Less muscle damage means fewer aches and less healing time! It also means that you can get on with your life without having the pain and discomfort that we have all come to expect with weight lifting routines. The workout times are shorter because of the advantage that the slower movements have on your body.
While I haven’t been using the F4X Workout long enough yet to have completely achieved the results that I am looking for, I am well on my way.
Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Have you tried the F4X workout system?
