We found that the DVD that came with the Tower 200 lacked proper follow along warmup exercise. So here’s a Fit Test Dummies one!

Welcome to Season 2 of Fit Test Dummies! We decided to start this season out with a bounce using Spri’s Step360.

You can do anything you can think of, remember to make it fun!

Here is the list of moves we did for the circuit.

  1. Lunge – 10 each side
  2. Single leg hold, back leg lift – 10 each side
  3. Single leg knee ups – 15 each side
  4. Lunge to single leg lift – 15 each side
  5. Side leg lift – 20 each side
  6. Single arm pushups with balls – 20 each side
  7. One arm military press – 15 each side
  8. Over the top – 15 reps
  9. Pushup Jacks – 30 reps
  10. Ski Abs – 15 reps
  11. Plank to pushup – 15 reps

FTD Tips:

  • Warm up: the most important part of the workout. Do it for 5-10min depending on your level of flexibility, level of strength and how long you’ve been working out.
  • Stability Phase: this is really good for those who are just starting out and are trying to get their core centered.
  • Balance Phase: make sure you’ve mastered the Stability Phase of the Step360 program so that your form is good. Watch your lower-back and always keep your core engaged.
    • Great on the knees because the Step360 bounces with you.
    • Side handles allows you to do a lot of hand exercise on the ball.
    • Forces you to engage every muscle in your leg.
As always, work within your abilities, do what is comfortable to your body.
      • **Key with lunges: keep knees at 90 degrees and make sure your knees do not go over your toes.

Real Fit

Want to be REAL fit?

Not FAKE fit – no ridiculous impossible expectations requiring hours in the gym and impossible to maintain meal plans. People ask me all the time what my routine is – they think I’m going to tell them I’m a professional trainer spending hours in the gym and eating very specialized food or eating like a bird.

The truth is, I haven’t been to the gym in two years, I never workout more than 90 minutes a day, and most of the time I’m eating fast food for lunch.

What’s the key then? I make myself a priority – my second appointment every day is a workout DVD in my home gym (the patio). I use supplements judiciously. I eat real food for dinner (I’m blessed to have an amazingly fit wife who has taught herself to cook gourmet healthy food).

And I run a company producing branded content for The Biggest Loser TV show, opening The Biggest Loser Resorts around the country, finding sponsors for The Miss Universe Organization, and now producing original content to help all of you reach your fitness goals. Yes I’m a fitness dork – and I’m proud of it.

More tomorrow on fast food secrets and my favorite protein supplement.
