Heroes Training Tips
Train with a partner if possible or seek the help, advice and assistance of your gym instructor.
Follow the supplement guide and proper diet program to get the best results from your training.
In most exercise routines intensity is a key factor. You can increase intensity by limiting the rest time between sets,
completing more reps or using more weight.
Get enough rest. Your muscle will only develop and grow when you are resting.
It is very important not to over train as this can have detrimental effects on your development and your health.
Take a few days off at the end of each training cycle. This allows your body to recuperate before starting a new training routine. If you are using the muscle, power or athletic routines this is really important – these are very intense training routines.
Drink plenty of water.
Training routines are a guide only and can be changed to suit your circumstances.
For the cardiovascular exercises different equipment can be substituted as required eg treadmill instead of exercise bike.
It may at first be necessary to increase rest times between sets and then gradually reduce them.
Never lift weights so heavy they cause you injury ” you should never use more weight than you can comfortably lift.
Sports supplements are not medicines and are not designed to treat, prevent, or cure any medical condition.
Always check with your doctor before starting any kind of exercise or supplement regime especially if you have any kind of medical condition.
