Weight lifting - "Training as a gym instructor at TECH Global University"


I am passionate about sport and for this reason I have been studying for some time to be able to dedicate myself to personal training for athletes. I want to get more education and I have seen a TECH Global University's gym instructor program that I think can provide me with a lot of knowledge to dedicate myself professionally to what I want to do.

Can anyone here share their experiences with this degree and confirm if it is useful?

Thank you very much :)

Salut angeline !

Je m'appelle Alicia j'ai 13 ans bientôt 14. Je pratique l'équitation le samedi, le fitness tous les soirs et la musculation de temps en temps et je vais essayer d'en faire plus. Déjà que fais tu comme exercices ? Je te conseille de varier tes exercices. Après si tu veux perdre du poids niveau ventre je te conseille le gainage. Au niveau des cuisses c'est plutôt les squattes qui sont bien.
Sinon je ne suis pas une pro. Je te conseille d'aller voir sur YouTube ( si tu peux bien sûr). La chaîne tiboinshape entrainement est bien il donne des conseils pour tous le monde et pour toutes les parties du corps ! Sinon je pense que le fitness est pas mal pour muscler aussi !
N'hésites pas à me recontacter si tu veux d'autres infos je te répondrai avec plaisir !!

Weight lifting - "Culturisme"

Récemment j'ai lu un livre vraiment intéressant sur le culturisme.
Ca a vraiment brisé certains stéréotypes que j'avais envers cette forme d'entrainement...
en fait, j'ai appris que justement ce n'est pas qu'un entrainement, mais plutot une manière de vivre... le culte du corps à l'aide des poids et machines. Le principe est simple, celui de valoriser et perfectionner notre corps grace a une bonne alimentation, c'est sur, mais surtout grace à l'entrainement continu et centré sur le développement musculaire.
Je ne sais pas si d'autres personnes connaissent ou pratiquent le culturisme, mais je trouve que les valeurs sont vraiment intéressantes!

salut ouais en effet c'est plutôt une manière de vivre car les inconvénients sont grands il faut manger très riche et avoir des rythmes constants d'exercice et surtout avoir le mental car faire de la muscu c'est quand même de la souffrance autant psychique que physique. Mais sa à vraiment quelque chose de noble ce sport et je même de spirituel.tu compte en faire?

I have to disagree where you're saying weight lifting isn't nice for girls. I lift weights. I may not lift as much as guys do, but still, I'm seeing results, and that's good! :)

Weight lifting - "what are your opinions about "weight-lifting without aerobic exercise""

I am very interested in weight-lifting. Even though I'm not in good shape, I try working hard and I want to have a nice body shape.
Anyway I wonder whether weight-lifting without aerobic exercise is good or bad.
Please comment to this problem~

Hi Wise! How are you? Well, based on your question, you want to have a good shape and want to try weight lifting. That's a great idea and weight lifting is great since it improves your muscle tone and the more muscle you build, the more calories you can burn since muscle usually consumes an extra 6 calories or more when recovering, depending on your weight, which can aide with weight loss. Although, you were wondering if you should also do it with anaerobic exercise, also known as cardio. Cardio burns a lot of calories and is good for the heart and lungs, but if you do too much, it consumes the muscle you are building. Therefore, if you do want to do anaerobic exercise (cardio), don't try to do a whole lot of it, because it can slow down your progress with the muscles you are building. Something between 20-30 minutes of anaerobic exercise should be sufficient. However, each person's body works differently and they have different goals. Someone might do weight lifting only and still build muscle while another person needs to do a balance of cardio and weight lifting to maintain their shape. The point is that you need to have balance of both. Also, a balanced and healthy diet is crucial for when your both weight lifting and when recovering. A lot of protein such as chicken and turkey, lots of milk, whey protein mixed with milk, lots of fruits and veggies, and carbs and water. No sugar or processed foods will come in handy when starting to weight lift and building muscles. If you do plan to do cardio, try to do it between 2-3 times a week, although this is just a basic idea to help you. Although I do agree with what the other people who posted to this thread mentioned. Do some research first and then consult your doctor before starting any exercise program. Best of luck with your fitness goals! Have a wonderful day! -Amy ^-^

Hey Wise,
When you do weights, or high intensity (high weight, low repetition) exercises, doing aerobic exercise is vital to any strength training program. However, you MUST time your aerobic activity properly. For example, if you jog or run before doing weights, your body burns vital GLYCOGEN in your muscles. This in turn reduces your bodies ability to recover, repair or grow properly. Also, doing aerobic exercises on an empty stomach is even worse. By running on an empty stomach, your body seeks out a source of fuel to use. It is a common misconception that your body will target body to burn, but in fact it burns your hard earned muscle for fuel instead. So my advice to you is to visit some great sites like simplyshredded.com or bodybuilding.com, and to do your research!
