Trainer Tip Tuesday! – Order Matters

Hey Bloggers & readers,

Today you are in for a treat with trainer tip tuesday, something many people forget or don’t know but something to always keep in mind when working out —

Today’s tip: The order of how you do your exercises matters. confused? Okay! well, Most beginners come to the gym ready to do something — they are trying to decide which machine, or free weight they should use & sometimes the thought of MOST fatiguing — to LEAST fatiguing doesn’t cross our minds when working out, BUT I want to let you know that order matters because it will help with preventing injury, hopefully will also allow you to get the most out of all your exercises.

My suggestion: plan ahead & make COMPOUND movements first on the agenda, unless you have some plyometric work (then usually you will start with plyos or do them on a different day) — same with power exercises, I would recommend power first.

Why? Simple! those exercises will require a lot of effort. Not a bad thing, just means, it will take a lot of your energy and it is best to start with them rather than end with them and not be able to give it all you got because your are exhausted or sore from the previous exercises.

Hopefully this was a helpful reminder for the next time you are at the gym!

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 7+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
