The 45-degree leg press is a safe and effective way to exercise the major muscles groups of your legs. The leg press is a good alternative for people who are unable or uncomfortable with performing a back squat. An advantage of the leg press is that it allows you to use more weight than a free weight squat. It's also to add variety to your workout routine.
The arc trainer is a great way to improve cardiovascular and respiratory fitness. This is a low impact exercise and therefore is good for people with join pain in the knees and hips.The upper-body component gives you a good workout and provides additional calorie burning effects.The arc trainer shapes the legs and butt.
If your push ups are too easy you can perform them with your feet on a ball. By raising your feet you add more resistance to the upper chest muscles, much like the incline bench press. The swiss ball also adds the extra challenge of maintaining your balance while performing the exercise. The instability challenges your core and activates the abdominals, low back and obliques.
The barbell complex is a "hybrid" exercise combining the hang clean, back squat and shoulder press. There are many variation of this exercise, but most often it is performed with an Olympic lift, squat, push and pull. It's very demanding on your short-term energy systems and is effective for conditioning for sports. You can use a PVC pipe, wood dowel or empty barbell to begin. Once you feel comfortable with the movements you can slowly add weight.
The barbell forward lunge strengthens the glutes and thighs. You can take a shorter step forward if you are just learning to perform lunges. Once you have performed a few sets you can increase your stride length to activate the hamstrings and glutes. Dumbbells may be used in place of a barbell if you have difficulty balancing the bar on your back. The barbell forward lunge can be included in your lower-body workout or circuit training routine.
I highly recommend anyone who is in this field or career and to take ISSA, they are very helpful, professional and they help you expand in the personal training, fitness and healthy lifestyle.
I simply have not ever enjoyed a certification as much as I did this one. This is by far my favorite and I thought the entire program was very well worded and engaging.
ISSA provided me with essential tools and knowledge to transform my hobby into a desired business.
ISSA definitely proved themselves above and beyond. I definitely received more than I expected and absolutely excited to take more courses.
The content is informative and the support is endless.
I definitely recommend the ISSA on-line program to become a certified personal trainer, it's very complete and you get a lot of support along the way.

Of my now 25 coaching certifications, I was super impressed with how in-depth and thorough the ISSA SSC is.
I had taken one or two other courses by different organizations before and they were nowhere near as thorough and in-depth as this one.
...it was the most comprehensive program with a solid foundation in all the aspects of nutrition that I needed for my practice.
ISSA has helped make my dreams com true of being a personal trainer and helping people become better versions of themselves.
I wanted to start my career in fitness, so I opted for ISSA. I have done certification in fitness training and scored 95.7% in it.
I am really looking forward to helping people realize and reach their goals of becoming more healthy and physically fit, no matter their age.
This Strength and Conditioning Certification from ISSA gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in strength and conditioning, whether it be in the gym or outside on the field or court, with a team or an individual.
They have been tremendously supportive over the years and helped me to build a very profitable personal training practice!
