Top reasons to use a Full-body workout

April 14, 2013 in general, Tips by admin

1. Smaller time commitment!alarm clock WEB

Since full body workouts can be performed over the course of just two or three days a week, this allows more time for other obligations in your life.

2. Ideal for Fat-loss!

If you’re looking for fat loss, then the perfect choice here is also full body workouts. Full body workouts make for the ideal fat loss workout set-up because they will get you working each muscle group at least twice a week, but won’t ask too much from the body in terms of recovery. When you exercise, you use muscle. This helps build muscle mass, and muscle tissue burns more calories — even when you’re at rest — than body fat.

“The most effective way to increase metabolism and burn more calories is by aerobic exercise and strength training. Both are important,” Megan A. McCrory, PhD, a researcher with the School of Nutrition and Exercise Science at Bastyr University

Strength training becomes especially important as we get older, when our metabolisms tend to slow down. One way to stop this is to add some strength training to your workout at least a couple of times a week. The largest muscles (and therefore the largest calorie burners) are in the thighs, abdomen, chest, and arms.

3. Higher Recovery rate

One main reason why some people do not progress on their workout program is simply because they aren’t recovering from session to session. Some people cannot handle back-to-back workouts even though they aren’t working the same muscle part, so for those individuals, full body workouts are perfect. You will get at least one day off between each full body workout, so they will give your muscles maximum recovery time.

4. Variety is the spice of life!

In order to prevent training plateaus, it’s important that you’re constantly manipulating something about your workout program. This could be the exercises you’re performing, the total number of reps you are using, the style and resistance of your workout etc.

Here at The Way, using Martial Arts and CrossFit, we provide a strength and conditioning programme consisting of constantly varied functional and skilled movements. Using Martial Arts combined with CrossFit, our workouts will improve your capability at the 10 physical skills;Cardio-respiratory Endurance, Strength, Flexibility, Stamina, Speed, Power, Accuracy, Agility, Balance and Coordination.


CrossFit at The Way : CrossFit is Variety.
CrossFit specialises in NOT-specialiDSC01480sing. Functional fitness includes strength, flexibility, endurance, stamina, speed, power, agility, balance, coordination and accuracy.  If you want to be good in ALL of these areas, variety is a must. To get this variety, we use movements and training techniques and skills from the sports of weightlifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning.  We also sprinkle in the use of kettle bells, plyometrics, medicine balls, battle rope etc.

5. Simple Scheduling

If you’re someone who finds life crowding out your workouts on a regular basis, full body workouts are the most practical approach for those who have irregular schedules.

6. Lower levels of boredom

finding it hard to drag yourself to the gym regularly enough to see a difference? The more often you repeat the same activity over and over again the greater the chances that you will find boredom settling in. Since full body workouts require lower levels of frequency, they already have an advantage.

Here at The Way, you’re constantly challenged by the changing warm-ups and conditioning routines as well as learning new skills in Martial Arts, perfect for keeping your interest!

ITF 태권도

January 11, 2013 in Training information by admin

ITF 태권도?  우리가 일반적으로 부르는 태권도랑 틀린건가요? 아님 같은 건가요?
간단히 애기해 전세계는 두가지 구룹의 태권도가 있습니다. 
ITF 란 International Taekwondo Federation 의 준말이며 흔히 애기하는 국기원은 World Taekwondo Federation. 의 준말 입니다.  이 두구룹이 전세계의 태권도를 리드하고 있습니다.

ITF는 1966년 WTF는 1973년 시작되었습니다.   태권도의 창시자로 불리는 최홍희 장군이1972년 캐나다로 망명후 1973년 김운용에 의해 만들어진것이 WTF 입니다. 
1972년 망명 후 ITF는 캐나다에 본부를 두고 태권도를 보급했고, WTF는 88올림픽 이후 급성장 하였습니다. 

ITF는 주먹 기술을 사용함으로 보다 실전적 무도라 불리며 WTF는 올림픽 가입 후 보다 스포츠화 되어 버렸습니다. 그래서  ITF 를 정통태권도라 불립니다.
저는 2002년 캐나다를 방문해 연수 후 ITF 사범 자격을 받았습니다.

Friday night Sparring

January 11, 2013 in news, Training information by admin

두명다 30전이고 정말 열심히 살고 취미로 운동을 선택해 운동도 열심입니다. 라이벌 의식이 둘이서 강해 스파링을 하면 진지하게 하네요.

어린이도 스파링교육을 자주시키고자 합니다. 용기있는 사람은 사람에 대한 두려움이 없어질때 가능합니다.
