Add A Little Accessory Work

Missy —  November 8, 2013 — 2 Comments

A question that someone recently asked me was “How can I lift more weight?” In addition to lifting heavy weights, you have to make sure you don’t forget the accessory work. That work is very important for making your lifts big and successful. During our off season training we put in a lot of accessory muscle work. They also make you work up a great sweat!

The following videos will demonstrate a couple of the exercises we recently did:

Walking planks (using sliders under our feet) with 1-2 pushups for 4 sets

Glute bridge with a band: feet wide 15 reps, feet medium 15 reps, feet narrow 15 reps twice through

  1. I saw an article about your group and what you have done and it is wonderful. I have fought weight all my life and now reading about sculpting your body, I am ready! It won’t be as easy for me since I am 63 and will turn 64 in a couple of months. I still work full time and am active. I have hand weights and a treadmill and it is about time I put them to use. I have been on line this morning trying to find the right weight lifting techniques to start out with and found a few. I sure could use some pointers. I would be very thankful for any help I can get. I signed up for the blogs and looking forward to getting those. Keep up the good work and good luck in your competitions.
