Strength training is essential to increase Bone Mineral Density, muscle tissue and CNS tolerance. This in turn helps prevent osteoporosis, arthritis and encourage weight loss.
But our campers don’t really care about that (except maybe the weight loss part).
Luckily, a tough strength workout leaves you feeling pretty sore the next day which as we all know is unfortunately how our clients tend to rate their sessions.
In this session I’ve included plenty of lower body exercises to get a good growth hormone release. Also as we want to still burn as many calories as possible, leg training is one of the easiest ways to do this.
