Whether it is to burn off those Thanksgiving meals and desserts or prepping for that Christmas party outfit, many of us are heading to the gym this week with a goal in mind. For this week’s #WorkoutWednesday we have an Introduction to Power Training workout straight from the Cybex Workout Center to help you reach that fitness goal.
Start Power Training
Take a look at this beginner performance workout and give it a shot at your gym today. Below is the information on the workout goals, fitness equipment needed and some tips on movement, weight and rest. The workout is broken up into 4 blocks, which are displayed as well.
Train to Move - Prepare for Power Training
In this fitness workout, the goal is to prepare you for power training. We aren’t looking to build explosive power here, so you should use a slower tempo, lighter weight, and focus on control of the movements. Perfect the movements and positions before progressing to the next level.

Length of Workout
Approximately 30-45 minutes.
Use rhythmic, smooth motion and keep a slower tempo. After each rep, pause before the next rep, engaging your core, and taking note of your knee and spine positioning. This pause also allows you to begin the next rep from an “engaged” position.
NOTE: For more information on each movement in this workout, view the animated demos from the Cybex Workout Center.

Build a foundation of strength
Remember, the goal and focus of this workout is to help get you familiar with power training movements and comfortable enough with those movements to master them before moving to faster tempos and stronger weights. Building a solid foundation through workouts like this will help you with tougher ones in the future.
