Your Legs Matter Too!

Save space and time by focusing on your health by working your legs. The MAXPRO does both in a unique way by allowing you to focus on your goals in a short period with a minimum amount of time needed. 

Working the lower body creates an advantageous situation for caloric expenditure because your body has more muscle mass there.  

There are wants and needs in fitness, and not all wants and needs are the same. Some people want a nice booty and legs, but what they need is a strong lower body that will keep them injury-free for the rest of their life and assist the rest of their core for great joint and spinal health. Some people need more strength and stability for personal or athletic reasons, like hiking, sports, or playing with their children or grandchildren. The by-product of strength and stability in your lower body is the booty and leg gains. 

Lower body strength and stability start with acknowledging that your lower body plays an integral part in spine health since your glutes, quads, hamstring, and more are part of your core when they attach to your hips. Core stabilization allows for distal limb mobility (your arms and legs will move stronger and faster).

Benefits of a strong lower body: 

  • Fall prevention due to increased agility and balance
  • Run better, faster, and longer
  • Strengthen core muscles
  • Improved posture, decrease back and neck pain
  • Minimize chances for osteoporosis
  • Reduce joint pain
  • Increased confidence
  • Functional/structural brain changes and improved cognitive function (ii) 
  • Improve overall fitness and longevity(iii)
  • Decrease knee injuries

A sinister but straightforward workout for your lower body that you can do in under 30 minutes only requires the MAXPRO, your body, a desire to be bold and brave, (oh, and a timer!). It's called MAMXPRO Energy, and it only takes two moves that you do back and forth. 

(A)The first move is a MaxPro Deadlift or squat, and it needs to be heavy enough to do 4-6  repetitions, under 30 seconds with some time to spare. 

(B) The second movement is an Energy Booty Jack, a more explosive exercise that you can do about ten repetitions of in 30 seconds with some time to spare.  

There are five blocks where you work exercise A (MAXPRO Deadlift) for 30 seconds for four rounds and then follow it with exercise B (Energy Boot Jack) for 30 seconds for four rounds.  Start with 4-6 repetitions of Deadlifts or squats in 30 seconds, and the time you spare is the time to prepare for the next round, for four rounds total. Then you immediately follow it with ten repetitions of the Energy Booty Jack in 30 seconds, and the time you spare is the time to prepare for the next round, for four rounds total. The "time to spare" is when you gain to rest or prepare for the next round and repeat the two rounds for five blocks.  

The table below shows you how to perform all the blocks with your body weight and the MAXPRO. 

The rounds go left to right and then down in blocks.
