Ready for some hacks to boost your Spider Lunge? Here's @Sharnee_Lee_Scott_Fitness, Master Teacher Trainer at #LagreeFitness, with some quick tips!

Step 1: Stand next to the front of the Mega and face forward. Place hands on the closest handlebar.

Step 2: Place the heel of the foot closest to the Mega in the far carriage eyelet, bend this standing knee and be sure to keep the knee above the ankle without rolling the knees in. Make sure the hips are low and square to the front and the shoulders are also square without slouching or leaning forward.

Step 3: Slowly push the carriage open and stretch the leg placed on the carriage whilst stabilizing the supporting primary leg. Be sure to keep from locking this leg.

Step 4: Slowly bend the leg on the carriage to return the carriage to the starting position. Resist the carriage all the way in and do not let it touch the platform.

For an additional challenge, step your primary standing leg further back from the front of the machine maintaining the knee stacking over the ankle.

Today, I would like to share with you the importance of balance. 
Balance is a complex process that involves several senses working simultaneously to allow our bodies to walk, run, dance, jump, you name it. But balance is more than being able to stand on one foot. 
Balance is also the body’s ability to perceive and maintain its position in the world. 
So, how do you improve your balance? 
You do it by strengthening the #core. This is why the #LagreeFitness Method integrates compound exercises and core conditioning, not only in every #workout but in each and every move. 
After all the #stronger your balance is, the better chance you have of staying upright and off of your butt. 
Thank you for watching.

Hey guys what's up?! Luke Lombardo, Master Teacher Trainer from #LagreeFitness, is here to talk to you about how to prevent anterior pelvic tilting! He's going to use the wheelbarrow as an example. 
Anterior Pelvic Tilt, APT for short, is the forward tipping of the pelvis (think about when your lower back is arched). This position often puts stress on the lower back and does not allow your hamstrings, glutes or abdominals to properly contract.

So, let’s go over some cueing to make sure you maintain a neutral spine in the wheelbarrow: 
Plant your shins down and squeeze your inner thighs as well as your #glutes. 
As your glutes contract, you should feel your pelvis posteriorly rotate to neutral. 
From there, brace your core (Luke likes to think of pulling his belly button towards his spine). Close your rib cage, pulling it down to prevent your ribs from flaring out. 
From here, maintain the proper modified #plank position and hinge from your shoulders and you have a double thumbs up wheelbarrow! 
Thanks for listening guys, hope this helps! Now get your shake on!

Today, we would like to talk about the difference between #aerobic and anaerobic exercise. 
Aerobic exercises are activities you can sustain over a long period of time. Such as jogging.

Bursts of activity over a short period of time, like sprinting, are anaerobic. 
Both aerobic and anaerobic exercise burn #fat, boost your metabolism, improve endurance and #cardio condition. So, who do you vote for? 
The answer is neither one. The best results come when you do both. 
That’s why the #LagreeFitness Method incorporates aerobic and anaerobic segments in every class. Not only will you burn fat and improve stamina, but you will also develop lean muscle mass as well.  Hope to see you on a #megaformer soon.

Thank you for watching.

As the creator of a fitness method, I receive emails every day from clients asking me how they can lose weight, burn more #fat, and make those #abs pop. The first thing I ask them is, “How’s your #diet?” The answer I get is always the same. 
Now, I’m not here to tell you what to eat. You know what to eat. And we all have our weaknesses. Mine, is I like a bowl of cereal before bed. 
#Fitness is about living a healthier life and feeling better. A huge factor in improving the way you feel and look is learning to be honest with yourself about your habits and that includes being honest about what you’re eating.

The reality is you can train and train, but at the end of the day, you cannot outrun a bad diet. 
I’m Sebastien Lagree for #LagreeFitness. Thank you for watching.

Hey everybody! We would like to share with you the benefits of strength training. 
We often overlook resistance training because we are afraid of looking like #bodybuilders. 
When, in fact, by incorporating #strength training into your life, you will cause your metabolism to constantly be working, and therefore, you will be burning calories even when your body is at rest. 
Lots of people think that intense #cardio is the only way to improve cardiovascular health. But strength training is also important for heart health and can lower blood pressure more effectively than aerobic exercise alone

A well-designed resistance program on the #megaformer will tone #muscle, improve cognitive function, and boost energy. 
This is why the #LagreeFitness method is designed to make you stronger by incorporating resistance into every movement. 
Thank you for watching!

Shout to the talented team behind this production.

Ever wonder what it means when someone says, "Core Stability?" Here is Sharnee Lee Scott, Master Teacher Trainer at #LagreeFitness, to answer that question.

There is a common misconception that the #core muscles in the body are the #abs, when in fact they are series of deep stabilizing muscles surrounding the pelvis and spine. 
When the spine curls forward it is called "spinal flexion." The spine flexion muscle group is contracting. I.E. the abdominals. Such as an ab curl or #crunch. 
Shortening muscle fiber contractions are known as "concentric muscle contractions." Such as when the spine and pelvis are stabilizing in a neutral position, your core muscles are contracting to hold this position. Such as a #plank or table top. 
The muscle fibers are maintaining the same length in what's called an isometric contraction. With this in mind, be selective with verbal cues and avoid incorrect terms such as "curl your spine using your core". Hope this helps with your next #workout on the #megaformer. Thank you for watching!
Ever wonder why we like the feeling of working up a #sweat? Sweating plays an important biological role in regulating our body’s temperature. When we get too hot through labor, #exercise, or simply being outside on a summer day, the hypothalamus in our brain turns on our sweat glands. The sweat evaporates from our body, turns to gas, and cools us down. 
Aside from the biological benefits, we like to sweat because it’s a badge of accomplishment. It’s a sign that we put in the work and earned this endorphin rush, but it’s important not to overdo it. When we do, we subject ourselves to mineral loss, heat exhaustion, and possible brain damage. 
So, when you are working up your next endorphin rush on the #megaformer, remember to be smart and practice the #lagreefitness method safely and effectively. Thank you for watching.

Many studies offer the hypothesis that the majority of fat loss due to exercise occurs when we are consuming the greatest amount of oxygen. Here at #lagreefitness, this is something we like to call, “The After-Burn Effect.” If there is a higher rate of oxygen intake after #exercise, one naturally wonders, what is that oxygen doing?

In restoring the body to a state of rest, the extra oxygen not only adapts the body to the activity just performed but balances hormones, replenishes fuel stores, repairs cells and helps burn #fat. 
In order for us to huff-and-puff on the #megaformer effectively, we need fuel to power the #cardio system that is consuming and processing this increased supply of oxygen.

One then must ask the question: what is the source of that fuel? From there, it is quite easy to posit the source of fuel during After-Burn is fat cells. Thank you for watching!

Did you know that #exercise can help improve your emotional intelligence? Performance and success are often determined by both your mental intelligence and your emotional intelligence. 
So, why not train both during your #workout?

Science tells us that one's ability to work well with others is what leads to 90% of success!

We all know that exercise can help alleviate stress, anxiety, anger and depression. But it turns out, that #training on the #megaformer can also improve our empathy skills. 
Researchers have determined that there are five major categories of emotional intelligence. Self-awareness, #motivation, social skills, self-regulation, and empathy. 
Training your mind to focus with #lagreefitness can help you improve these skills. As you achieve more #goals, you motivate yourself to keep achieving.
