Hi ironstarz

Welcome back. Pls feel free to sign up in Monica's batam game.

Am keen on any fat loss conditioning and golf centric conditioning workout. Would appreciate if you could share.



For a fat loss program , i would advise on a HIIT ( High Intensity Interval Training) workout, but it may not be suitable for all especially for people who have not been exercising for some time. As our body needs to be properly conditioned before we move on to a more physically demanding exercise , it would be important to have progressive training.

For a person who have not been exercising should start of with the below sample program. Please bear in mind that before attempting any exercise , one should have done his individual PAR-Q survey.

Maybe a rough example would be compare a national team track and field running coach and a personal trainer at a xxx gym . They are different in term of their job scope. A S&C coach should be focusing on improving a person's ability to perform or execute a certain sports.

But a physical trainer's focus would be on the clien'ts goal , it could be fat loss / muscle building / mass gaining etc.


Example of a S&C

Australian Strength & Conditioning Association

National Coaching Accreditation Programme (NCAP)

In my last 10 years of weightlifting , I've never seen any PT making the client do olympic lift such as snatch / clean and jerk etc. They will spend more time making a client running on a threadmill etc. Reason is because a PT would not be getting a client to do such exercise due to the high risk involved.

Any pointers to on how to engage our core muscles esp. the tummy area .. ya know?

To be honest it would be generally impossible to have spot reduction with training alone, the only way to attain a spot reduction would be liposuction.

When a person lose weight, it will be an overall entire body transformation, the abs may show early or late depending on genes.

Example this is a pic of me in 2011 Oct

October


November


Feb


Current



As you can see it would be an overall change as mentioned. In the earlier post i've mentioned calories output>input will result in fat loss . But how can it be done.Below are some short answers

1. High Intensity Interval Training => It would leave your body in a raging metabolism rate for the rest of the day.

2. Reducing carbs and increase protein intake

3. Weight lifting to build more muscles as increased lean muscle mass would result in a higher metabolism rate.


Common mistakes

1. People do is to do 10000001 crunches and situp in one day , hoping their midsection would be tight and abs showing , but that will not be the case, instead their waist line will increase as the muscle becomes bigger and the layer of fat around is still present.

2. Isolation exercise such as bicep curl, tricep extension etc are only a small block of training, more focus should be emphasised on compound exercises such as bench press, squats , over head press , pull up .

3. People like to train the upper body and forget the leg. Trust me squats will change your entire body in a zippy manner Smile


What is the meaning of compound exercise?

1. It would be 1 exercise which involved different muscle group to work in order to execute the movement. This would result in higher calories burnt compared to isolation such as bicep curl


Hope it helps, feel free to ask more Smile

Don't say until like that la, to be honest in my honest opinion , long distance run are not exactly the best way to cut fat, the intensity is not there, it only give a good cardio session and sweat out.To cut short a 20 min interval training will burn more than a 60min long distance run.

If there is a problem for running , brisk walk first before progressing to slow jog , there is a need for progressive built up before attempting any intense training . Safety come first Smile

Hi ironstarz , nice to know you're contributing back to the community!

Hence one question , which muscles/body part should we focus on for golf? Thighs? Or forearm prehaps? Followed by what exercises can we do at home to help S&C (strength&conditioning) that part of our body?


Thanks alot in advance!

Hi Bryan , for golf one of the main focus should be the core muscles group, basically the part that connects our upper and lower body .

In short it will be the abs, obliques, lower back ( spine ) I will propose strengthening the midsection rather then train for strength.

Home exercise could be in form of sit up , air cycling with alternate elbow to knee , planks .
Personally I would invest in a simple band which is rubber and it can be used to create tension for strengthening muscle with gentle resistance as the spine is a fragile part
