Here is a great video of Lee Priest training rear delts in his home gym on the Powertec Leverage Pec Fly Rear Delt. This is perfect demonstration on how to perform certain isolation movements.
You will notice that Lee does not go all out with ridiculous weight. Instead he is just using a weight that he can control with ease and just knocking out the repetitions. You can even hear comment about the "burn" at the end of the set.
Now this machine is currently no longer in production. It has always been one of my favourite machines and has been stopped before and re..
Here is Lee Priest doing his thing on one of my favourite pieces of gym equipment - the Powertec Shape System.
People incorrectly assume that you can't do cable crossovers with the Powertec Shape system because it is not as wide as the traditional machine. However as Lee demonstrates in the video you can do them easily. As a matter of fact, the exercise is more like a traditional pec fly because the resistance is coming from behind. Whereas on a wide cable crossover the resistance is coming from the side. Having the cables closer together also opens up a wide variety of e..
This is the 3rd exercise Lee performs in his home gym chest workout. Here he goes back to the Powertec Multi System and does a flat leverage bench press.
You will notice that Lee does not have the bench perfectly flat. Due to the position of the leverage point when the bench is perfectly flat, the movement is more like a decline bench press. Having the bench on slight incline brings the movement into a traditional flat bench exercise - hope all that makes sense! Anyway the best way to get used to the machine is to just jump on it and get a feel for each movement. Really concentrate..
Here is Dr Ron's Power Matrix 3rd Principle demonstrated on the Powertec Multi System leverage bench press.
The beauty of this type of training is that you get an intense muscular workout but without over loading the joints. You only can lift a fraction of the weight you could lift in traditional set and rep formats. As I get older I find my joints simply can't take the load they once could. You still should train heavy, but not as frequently as you did when you were younger. So these Matrix workouts are a great way to add variety to your workouts and give your joints..
This is the 2nd part of Lee Priest's chest workout filmed in his Powertec and Ironmaster home gym.Lee started out with incline bench press on the Powertec Multi Gym and moves on to the Powertec Pec Fly for a shaping movement.
Note that Lee does not use crazy weights on this exercise. You can see that he is really focused on squeezing the muscle. He is operating in the higher end of the rep range, without targeting a specific number of reps. The goal is to exhaust the muscle not the ego!
See Lee Priest blast his chest on the Powertec Multi System doing incline bench press.The best lesson you can learn from this video is how Lee performs this exercise with perfect form. He has handling massive weight but doing full and controlled reps. If you ca't control the weight then you are using too much!
This is the first video of a complete chest workout Lee does on his Powertec home gym set up.
Here is another one of Funk's MMA Workouts. All you need is the Ironmaster Dumbbells, Ironmaster Adjustable Kettlebell, ab roller and skipping rope.This workout is specifically tailored for MMA training. It incorporates 5 workout stations that are completed in 1 minute each with no rest. So that is 5 mins work, just like a MMA round.
Now you are probably saying hey I have got no plans of jumping in the octagon so why do I need to train like a MMA fighter. The answer is simple. This training is highly effective and most importantly I find it enjoyable and challenging. I ca..
Now here is different style of workout for you all. I have done it twice now and it is definitely one of Funk's best!!! One of the purposes of the Ironmaster Quick Lock Dumbbell workout series was to expand the traditional weight trainers horizons.
Funk's MMA style workouts are a break from the traditional set, rep structure of bodybuilding training. The previous workouts incorporated traditional exercises into the high volume format. Now the dumbbell carry workout adds another twist with some different carrying movements. These not only keep the intensity up between exerci..
Here is Funk's next installment in the Ironmaster Dumbbell Workout series. This is an upper body workout that utilises one of my favourite features of the Ironmaster Dumbbells.
It might only be a minor difference but one of the big advantages of the Ironmaster dumbbell design is the ability to do renegade rows/push ups. It looks like a pretty tame exercise but when you try it you will find it to be absolutely grueling. This exercise alone will work your entire upper body. This routine also incorporates one of my new favourite exercises too - standing dumbbell snatches. I ..
Here is the first in a series of workouts Funk Roberts has created for the Ironmaster Adjustable Dumbbells. Funk specialises in MMA Workouts so check out his website for more great routines. Here is a short and sharp upper body workout that you can do with your Ironmaster Quick Lock Dumbbells. If you have other adjustable dumbbells you won't be able to the push ups in renegade style.
The workout has been structured so that you don't need to change weights between exercises.
Once you can complete the routine in the allotted time, it is time to incre..
