“I’m confused–what is Muscle Confusion and is it really important?”

Muscle confusion or cross training prevents plateaus

Muscle confusion or cross training prevents plateaus

Your body has an amazing ability to adapt and your muscles are no exception–they quickly become accustomed to workout routines.  That is
why the training principle of muscle confusion is so powerful, it prevents plateaus in your training and keeps your muscles growing.  By changing your  workout routine and adding variety on a daily basis, your muscles cannot become “bored” thus forcing your muscles to devlope faster than any other training method.  Performing the same workouts over and over can also cause your weight loss to stall so if weightloss is your goal, then muscle confusion should be your best friend.

Muscle confusion keeps your body guessing.  Muscle confusion is basically another way of describing Cross Training.   Cross training means you

are doing several different workouts in the same week.  For example, on Monday you may run, Tuesday – bike, Wednesday, swim, and so forth.  With weightlifting it is the same, on certain days, you exercise your arms and shoulders, another day the focus may be your legs, and another day you may be working on  your back or abs.  Cross training develops an overall balanced body that is strong in all areas.  For example, consider a workout routine that only involves biking a hilly terrain four times a week.  This routine would certainly result in strong legs and an increase in overall cardiovascular fitness and lung capacity.  However, the rest of the body is missing out.  Core exercises, balance, and strength training could all improve the efficiency and performance of the cycling.

Changing exercises on a regular basis is also beneficial in that it helps prevent overuse injuries which stem from performing the same repetetive exercises.

A very popular system that emphasizes the Muscle Confusion Principle is Tony HOrtons P90x system.  I watched the videos prior to
working out along with them and I though to myself–that looks easy enough, I should be able to do that, no problem.
Then I got down to business and tried them out.  These workouts are not your everyday off-the-shelf workout video.  They are
kick butt workouts!  They are tough, but with consistency, they become easier and they provide results. The workouts are scientifically designed
to provide maximum results.  They also offer fun and variety.  If you want to get results and avoid plateaus which lead to muscle hydrotrophy, then P90x may be right for you.  Click here to learn more about or order the P90x system (this is the best price I could find on the web–if you find a better price, please email me.)

Muscle Building Complex

NO-Xplode contains five proprietary blends of amino acids that are designed to stimulate and energize your body as well as your mind during workouts. This added level of intensity allows you to focus on what you need most: muscle growth. Each scoop is packed with a precise blend of vasodilators to ensure that your body receives an increase in oxygen and blood flow during your workouts. During any workout your muscles crave oxygen and blow flow as it they are key to muscular growth.

Want to go above and beyond your usual workout? N.O.-XPLODE™’s Muscle Volumizing Creatine Matrix also comes infused with AVPT Multi-Action Matrix, a complimentary blend of creatine analogs which functions to help reduce fatigue and help your body increase Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) during your workouts.

During workouts, your ATP is depleted which causes your body to become drained, even if you haven’t been working out your hardest. N.O.-XPLODE™’s Muscle Volumizing Creatine Matrix combats this by providing your body with a powerful dose of ATP to help you push your body past its normal limits. Working like a domino effect, the more ATP available in your body for consumption, the more times your muscles are contracted leading to an effective muscle building workout.
