Workout Wednesday: Building Athletic Power Endurance

We recently introduced you to the Cybex Workout Center where you can find programming to help you with weight loss, run training, toning your size and shape, as well as performance and strength training. Within each category, you will find four levels of workouts, helping introduce you to movements at the beginner level and advancing in level and intensity as you get comfortable mastering each exercise. Our last #WorkoutWednesday introduced you to the beginning level of our Performance Series, the Introduction to Power Training workout. This week, we're building off of that workout and taking you to the next level.

Improving Your Strength

This program is meant to build your transitional power. This is the power of movement from the lower body, through the core and out through the upper body. The workout is designed to teach you to use your legs properly, as well as your core, to create more explosive power. You can do this program once a week for several weeks, in order to master the movements, before progressing to the next level.
