Top Tips for Improving Your Fitness

Fitness: Getting fit is high on everybody’s list, particularly after this over-indulgent month we’re in at the moment. Whether you’re looking to shape up at home or just want to improve your performance at the gym, there’s always plenty of room for improvement and questions that need answering. Well, we caught up with one of the best personal trainers in the fitness industry, Scott Laidler, to answer some of the questions that are most commonly asked and find out about his revolutionary online workout programs. What three exercises would you suggest for building muscles without weights? Why? A significant amount of muscle mass can be gained purely from bodyweight exercises if the correct exercises and training protocols are selected. The top three exercises I would suggest are:

Press-ups. Press-ups are great for building your chest, back and shoulders as well as strengthening your core. Try setting a 10 minute timer and seeing how many press-ups you can do in that time; by the end you will be grinding out one at a time.

 

Pull-ups. Pull-ups are classic exercises for developing upper body strength. They will help you develop width through your back and stimulate muscle growth in your biceps.

Track sprints. 100m track sprints, whilst technically cardio, are actually intense enough to be anabolic. Sprinting will help you develop muscle through your lower body and abs.
