You’ve likely been noticing a few things about our workouts and our coaching- whether you’ve been attending/participating in our LYB workouts for months/years or just a few weeks. Crushing you and entertaining us may seem like the sole purpose behind the LYB workouts, but there is more to it. There is a method behind the madness!
Why we program the way we do:
First and foremost, our workouts and coaching are always different (unless doing a repeat workout). Within your first month of training with LYB, you will see several different movements, formats, and time domains. This is because our body adapts to the stressors placed on it both physically and mentally. If you introduced your body to a new movement, it takes time and practice for the brain and body to learn it. As you continue to do this movement, the brain will become familiar and your body will gain the strength and capacity to perform it. However, if you repeat the same workout over and over again you will see initial adaptations but change will be limited past this stage. The body needs variety and when you train several different movements and time domains your body is constantly having to adapt and improve to keep up with what is demanded.
Although we do have some workouts that can be more “leg heavy” or “upper body focused” our workouts don’t split up body parts and most importantly cardio and strength are not two separate entities. An LYB workout often uses your full body, gets your heart rate up, and focuses on strength all in one. “Functionality” is the basis of our movements and formats. Functional movements are exercises that are directly applicable to movements that we perform in our day-to-day life. We train to be in shape. But more importantly, we train for longevity and the highest quality of life possible. Choosing the same 5 exercise machines repeatedly is not going to help you pick up your kids without putting your back out.
It would be so simple if we programmed a workout and everyone could do it exactly as written but the reality is, everyone has different capabilities, strengths, injuries, energy levels, equipment, and goals. We get to know our members and make it a priority to learn how they move and what they need. Based on this we intelligently provide options that will create progress while still providing a great workout.
