PERSONAL TRAINING IN DURHAM: Strength Training and Flexibility

CW-6096

In our Durham personal training studio, we promise our clients increased strength, weight loss, and improved flexibility. Therefore, a common question we get from our clients is:

“Why is Flexibility Important in Terms of Strength Training?”

In short, our answer is yes. Our Durham personal training gym teaches that without incorporating stretching into your workout, you may be holding yourself back from reaching your full fitness-potential. Stretching and a focus on your flexibility will allow you to reach a full-range of motion as you are completing your workout. Even when doing the most basic of exercises– from squats to push-ups– flexibility is a key component.

That’s why at The method gym in Durham, we teach our clients that focusing on both mobility and strength training can build muscle and improve your physical strength. While genetics play a role in flexibility potential, genetics don’t give you an excuse to be inflexible. Truth is, everyone has the potential to achieve a full range of motion. This is because our bodies are made to adapt to your daily habits actions. That’s why our motto is “Get Moving Again!”

If you stretch often, you will get good at stretching. The same is to say if you stop moving, your body won’t be good at moving. It may be hard (and rather uncomfortable) to get into the habit of stretching, but if you keep at it, you’ll start seeing progress and improved mobility before you know it!

All About Protein: How to Gain Muscle and Lose Fat the Healthy Way

Nuts+and+Fruit

Last week on our blog, we dished out the secret on how to gain muscle and lose fat. We say the secret lies in resistance exercise (weight lifting, weight machines, and whole body exercises) and eating lots of protein at the right times. When paired with lots of protein, even more than the recommended base amount, can boost the effects of resistance training and build muscle! Today our Durham personal trainers are going to break this down a bit further.

Get enough protein

To maintain muscle, consume at least 1.2 g of protein per kilogram of body weight each day. The best way to do this without gaining weight is through lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, yogurt, milk, soy beverages, tofu and legumes.

You can take this a step further by aiming for 2 to 2.4 g of protein per kilogram of body weight. What does that look like for the average person?  Consider about four egg whites, 14 ounces of lean meat, two cups of milk, and a protein drink. Be warned… It’s a real commitment!

Eat Protein Throughout the Day

Make sure you eat protein throughout the day from the morning into the evening and surrounding your workouts!

Don’t Forget to Eat Some Carbs

Many people are scared of carbs when it comes to losing weight but if you don’t eat enough of them you won’t have as much energy to workout and you could lose muscle. Carbohydrates fuel muscles to do work that allows them to get bigger. Without enough carbs, all that protein you’re eating will be used for energy instead of muscle repair and growth.

Grab a Protein Drink 

Drinking a protein shake immediately after you workout will give your muscles what they need for repair and growth.


What’s your favorite way to get protein? Have you seen a difference in your muscle tone when you’re eating more protein? Let us know your experiences in the comments below! Happy sweating Durham fitness lovers!
