Lacrosse 101: Beginner Practice Plans
In preparing the Beginner Lacrosse Practice Plans we realize:
- Beginners might not be of a young age.
- Beginners might just be trying out the sport to see if they like it.
- Beginners might not have an athletic background or experience in any other sports.
- Beginners might bring a high level of athleticism and natural talent.
- Beginners might not have ever seen a lacrosse game or lacrosse gear before the first day of practice.
- Beginners might not know that communication is a central part of the game.
- Beginners might not know the historic origins or traditions of lacrosse.
- Beginners might learn very quickly.
You might work with a beginner who is older, loves lacrosse, has been playing other sports and now finally gets to tryout for lacrosse, has been avidly watching lacrosse, and has researched or has buddies who have explained lacrosse history to him, but most of your beginners will probably be kids who have some of the qualities listed in the bullet points above.
In San Francisco in October 2013 Dom Starsia (Head Coach at Virginia) and Chris Bates (Head Coach at Princeton) led a coaches clinic where they were asked about the number 1 thing youth coaches are doing that they could do differently to make youth lacrosse better.They responded by pointing out that too many youth coaches are coaching things to get the players to win games that do not help develop the players in to good players.A classic example is the coach who has a big, physically domineering attackman, bigger than other kids his age, who can run through everyone and score goals with almost no use of skill.
Yes, utilize the players advantages, but make sure to teach that player good skills.For one thing, chances are that player will not always have such a lopsided advantage as his classmates grow, but the bigger point the coaches made was that if you coach the players to be good, they will get wins. Coach the players to be good first.Getting the players to be good players is the biggest responsibility for a coach teaching youth and beginning players.
The 2 most important things you can show a beginner on the first day are:
- Athletic Stance
- How To Hold A Lacrosse Stick
You will also want to tell them what the different parts of the stick are called, most importantly head, butt, shaft, and pocket, and you might want to tell them the stick is officially called a “crosse”.
More than likely your group has some beginners mixed with some experienced players who might know why the stick is really called a crosse, so this would be a good segue to mention the origins and history of the game and maybe even have the players share what they know.
If you have experienced players with the group as you go through the beginner “orientation” conversation on that first day you can tell your experienced players that you are going through the spiel with everyone as if they were all brand new, but the more the players know the faster it will go.Most players will appreciate reviewing the terminology, being reminded about and maybe demonstrating athletic stance, and reinforcing holding the stick in the ready position. Having this conversation with your players establishes your lingo and expectations, gives players a platform to speak and step forward as leaders and captains, and also gives you full license to clean up bad habits your “experienced” players developed during the time when they were away from your coaching.
You might also consider separating your experienced players from your beginners if you have support coaches, or you might have the experienced players run a line drill while the beginners get started.Your experienced players can help demonstrate drills and a lot of players will follow along if they see what they are supposed to do.
Usually some beginners arrive to the team in the days after the first practice.You will still want to go through the basics with these stragglers.This is a perfect task for an Assistant Coach if you are lucky enough to have one, but if you are the only coach you might need to pull that beginner aside during drills until you can be sure he knows how to get started. You can also have an experienced player work with the newcomer to get them up to speed on the basics while the team is pressing on.
Line drills are something that most kids understand.If you ask a kid to step up and start a line drill, they will appreciate being given the leadership role and it will begin to get the kids organized.Line drills are also an easy way for those kids running late to jump in.
Beginning players might not yet understand the importance of being at practice ready to go on time, and for younger players this is usually completely beyond their own control.People show up late, kids have trouble with their gear, some need to go to the bathroom, you name it, however this does not mean you have the kids who are ready to go stand around and wait.You are smart to start practice with warmups and line drills where players can merge in as they arrive or as they figure out gear issues or whatever is delaying them.
Young kids might not understand punishment for being late. .. maybe if their parents brought them to the field on time but the player took a long time to suit up.Anyhow, you might find you need to plan in time for tardiness as practice is getting started, though in the interest of getting practice moving you can decide to save the punishment for later in the day.See our section on Managing Lacrosse Parents for thoughts on establishing your team culture and your expectations for topics like punctuality.
The sequence of teaching basic skills that is working best for us is:
- How To Pick Up A Ground Ball — The ball is going to be on the ground a lot at first and people find all sorts of ways of picking up the ball so you might as well have them do it the right way from the start.
- How To Throw
- How To Catch
- How To Cradle
There are specific communication calls that go with the fundamentals in lacrosse.Even if players don’t understand the lacrosse talk right away it is good for them to know that Lacrosse Is A Game Of Communication. The traditional beginner calls are:
- “Ball Down!” when the ball goes to the deck.
- “I’ve Got Ball!” when the player is going to pick up the ball.
- “Release!” immediately after the player scoops up the ball.
- “Here’s Your Help Joe!” when a player wants Joe to throw the ball to them.
I find it extremely helpful to instruct players to use their opposite arm on the first day.Some coaches disagree and find this approach to be controversial but I have had great success developing ambidextrous players by telling beginners to switch to the other arm as if this is just how we do things.Many of them just do it, and truthfully, it really is just how we do things.Players who find this awkward are usually finding everything awkward, as well they should since lacrosse is this new thing they are trying and have never done before, so in the beginning one arm is just about as awkward as the other.
With knowledge of but perhaps not proficiency in the basics beginners are ready to try the skills while running.Scooping a ground ball on the run and throwing while running tend to be straightforward while catching on the run seems to take more practice, so you might keep that in mind while planning drills for your practices.Thus, this is where I teach Shooting, with drills that don’t have to involve catching, but which usually help players develop better accuracy, so that when they slow things down for a pass the pass is in a better spot to catch.
Once players start running with the ball it makes sense to start teaching dodges.Dodging actually increases understanding of cradling, and dodges can be introduced as part of cradling drills.The 3 basic dodges to teach are:
- Face Dodge
- Split Dodge
- Roll Dodge
With players running and dodging it helps to establish what they are dodging to get away from, so you can use this moment to teach Defensive Footwork where defensive players keep offensive players away from the line at the center of the field between the goals or better yet behind the goal altogether. Defense, like all lacrosse, is played from the ground up, so you can have the players learn the defensive footwork and counters to dodges without their sticks.
Players dodging with the ball, however, often forget to protect their stick, so once players have some exposure to proper defensive footwork this is where I like to introduce Defensive stick checks to help the dodgers have better form:
- Poke Check
- Lift Check
- Butt Hold
I do also teach the hip ride, where a defensive player with his hands together runs hip to hip with an opponent who has the ball and the defender uses his hands at the opponent’s hip to guide the player away from the middle of the field, but I do not emphasize this move as it leads to a higher number of penalties.Players and especially beginners seem to interpret this check/move in a way that leads to crosschecks and very unsafe crosschecks to the back. The rules committee introduced a rule to prohibit “thrusting” to counter the danger and, frankly, the sloppy play and crummy footwork that this maneuver often brings.
The hip ride does have it’s place in the game, mostly for middies, just like the kayak check and over-the-head check are good ideas when used correctly in the right situations, but with beginners I instead focus on the old-school V-Hold and Butt Hold, which are holds and even though they are called holds are not illegal (there is a penalty called a “Hold”).In fact, teaching the poke check combined with the V-Hold is one of the best ways to instruct proper sliding and for showing new players the right way to hit.
You will need to make yourself aware of the rules for the age group you are coaching.We are categorizing these plans by skill level and not by age for a reason, since many young players are actually quite experienced.Younger players are, however, usually required to play with younger player rules, so hitting might not be allowed for a player at U11 for example. A High School beginner had better know very well how the collisions work so that he can avoid penalties and more importantly be able to protect himself and other players.
Letting you in on a little secret, this “beginners” sequence is the way I start my season no matter what the skill level I am coaching.If the players are all experienced and proficient this goes very quickly, maybe even in half a practice or less, but I like to review the basic individual skills from the ground up with everyone and, invariably, in those early season practices I almost always see something in the basic fundamentals that each player is doing that needs adjusting no matter how experienced the player is.I just remind them — victory often depends on being better at the basics.
There are some basic individual skills for Goalies and for Face-Off Specialists that are simple musts, though these skills are so specialized they are treated in their own section of the LaxPlaybook site.All lacrosse players including Goalies use the skills listed on this page.
In addition to individual beginner skills there are some beginner team concepts that a coach should cover as well — Man-Ball situations, Face-Offs, Fast Breaks for both Offense and Defense, a basic Clear, Rides, Basic Team Offense, and Basic Team Defense.None of these become that useful until the players develop a level of competency in the individual fundamental skills, but remarkably, a team can have success without complex offensive or defensive plays or rides or clears if their players have a basic understanding of the rules and a solid foundation of fundamental skills.

Basic Practice Plans – Laxlife Lacrosse Coaching Resources
“Are you frustrated with the lack of coherent lacrosse information available on the internet? Don’t waste your time practicing with disconnected practice plans that lack purpose and progression (The WHY + The HOW). Use the Laxlife tried, tested and true, practice plans which are evidence-based, with skills and drills horizontally integrated (evenly balanced) across several practices, to ensure that skills are developed efficiently and effectively”
The fundamentals of lacrosse include: basic defense, scooping (loose balls), cradling/ball protection, basic transition, passing, catching, shooting & basic offense (appearing hypothetically in that order). You play good defense, knock the ball loose, pick it up, protect it and/or cradle it forward, pass the ball to any open players ahead of you, catch the pass and then shoot it if you are undefended and in the middle of the defense; otherwise creating a shot with basic offensive maneuvers.
Our first three Laxlife practices horizontally integrate the above mentioned fundamentals, culminating in a small-sided game of 3 vs. 3 at the end of the 3rd practice.

Basic Lacrosse Practices (#1 to #3): Progressive Development:
Within our “Laxlife Practice Plans” we feel that we have appropriate plans for all ages and skill levels. Initial basic practices provide team administrators the opportunity to identify the physical development (chronological age vs. biological age) and caliber of players; some of whom may be better suited in an older or younger age group, and others who may be good enough to potentially play “rep” league lacrosse instead of “house league.” Our FREE basic/beginner level practices (Practices #1 to #7) provide the perfect opportunity for the formative (general) observations and assessments of players, which are helpful for creating parity within a house league setting, and also for establishing goals and next steps (direction) for a team once it is made. Our Fundamental Skills Assessment is an example of a helpful tool in this regard, and can be integrated horizontally through a series of practices (as it is in Practices #1 to #3 – discussed below), or otherwise in a player assessment type atmosphere, which takes roughly 2 hours of practice time to complete depending on the numbers.
The Basics (Practice #1):
The warm-up in our 1st practice establishes its remedial tone, with players in helmets & gloves, and the first activity for the kids being to run a few laps around the perimeter of the rink (or a designated perimeter) with only sticks in hand, no balls. The only instruction for players is to keep two hands on the stick, which is a very important fundamental concept overall; coaches may also gauge the running technique of individual players, something which can be developed in future practices. This initial warm-up offers players a feel for the stick in determining which side of their body it feels most comfortable on (learning by discovery), while also assisting in getting the players’ blood flowing (warm).
Dynamic stretches would typically follow this general warm-up, but in the interest of skill development in this 1st practice we feel it is best that they be forgone based on time appropriation. Following the general warm-up, we recommend dividing the kids into two teams (equal lefties & righties) where they will work as a group for the first three practices (depending on numbers). Next, announce that at the end of the 3rd practice there will be a 3 vs. 3 game between the two teams, which helps keep players motivated and striving to improve their fundamentals, under the guise of “getting prepared for the big game.” This is a great opportunity for the kids to develop camaraderie, and has its benefits for organizational purposes as well.
Being that lacrosse participants must have some degree of skill in passing and catching before commencing game play, this first practice essentially introduces the four most basic skills required to play a game of lacrosse: basic defensive footwork, loose balls, cradling/ball protection; then passing/catching. We are essentially teaching these skills in the hypothetical order that they appear in a game: moving without the ball, picking the ball up off of the floor, protecting the ball once you’ve got it, and then either passing to a teammate or shooting. Certain skills take precedence over others and are taught in a specific order to ensure success in present and future drills/practices.
Laxlife campers always begin by demonstrating the fundamentals with proper technique
Two last important points to make about this first practice is that after each fundamental is taught there is a fun culminating activity (game) that involved the fundamental, and also that there is no goalie designated for this practice, as well as the next two practices described below. The reason being, that we feel all players should be learning the fundamentals, with fun being of paramount importance for retaining players new to the game; likewise, we wouldn’t want to pigeon-hole someone as a goalie too early (especially young kids).
The Basics (Practice #2):
The 2nd Practice (as well as the first practice) has the option of an outdoor venue (based on equipment availability) and players/parents are also invited to attend a demonstration (20 minutes prior to practice) on the basics of stick stringing and stick cutting. The 2nd practice naturally progresses forward in several different aspects, while incorporating many of the basic concepts from the previous practice. Starting with a quick re-hash on the skills learned in the previous practice, one of the first obvious progressions is in the general warm-up, as players are now encouraged to practice their cradling as they run around the box; also in the next drill as they “Follow the Stick” (Athletic Position – Variation #2). This gives the players a chance to progress their footwork from an offensive perspective, as opposed to a defensive perspective (no ball) in the previous practice.
Cradling is perhaps the hardest fundamental skill to develop over a short period of time
The first warm-up drill (Partner Passing – Variation #2 to #4) provides players the opportunity for further practice with the two most important of the skills taught in the 1st practice: passing & catching. These drill progressions are an example of moving from simple to complex and/or static to dynamic in orientation, which was also a strategy employed in the 1st practice with loose balls and cradling. Players are encouraged to gradually move further and further away as they pass; then pass with a short run; and lastly try catching passes while facing away from their partner. Once the players are warmed up, coaches should then take the time to introduce some basic dynamic stretches (stationary routine) and stress the importance of doing them as a team (in a relatively straight line) for cohesiveness, which is intimidating to opposing teams and also fosters unity.
The main activity of this practice then focuses on one of the main fundamental skills that was not touched on in the 1st practice, which is shooting. Teaching the mechanics of shooting is usually best accomplished starting with a set-shot, which occurs when the player has “time and space.” After a brief demonstration, players are encouraged to head to the boards/wall and to pick a target, getting a bunch of early reps with set-shots (Wall Ball – Variation #4).
Continuing with the theme of players getting lots of reps, next players move to the net, with all players shooting at the net at once in the (Horseshoe Drill – Variation #1), and coaches keeping track of how many balls hit the net each time (you can’t score if you don’t hit the net!). Next, players then get the opportunity to practice shooting-on-the-run within the same drill formation (Variation #4), which happens much more frequently than set-shooting, utilizing the same mechanics taught with passing, and very similar mechanics to set-shooting.
Finishing the practice continuing with the theme of “fun,” two games are used as culminating activities: Cradling Relay Race – Variation #1, with cradling also being an important part of being able to effectively shoot-on-the-run; and Shooting-On-The-Run Relay Race – Variation 1 (See Diagram Below), which should take precedence over the previous drill if you are short on time.
The Shooting Relay Race is always a great culminating activity
To conclude, at least 5 minutes at the end of practice should be devoted to intermittent sprints in the “Rabbit Run” – Variation #1, which is the type of cardio players should be getting used to as they prepare to play an actual game of lacrosse in the following practice. The cool down introduces “static stretching” and is completely player-centred, giving players a chance to demonstrate what they know, and again learn by discovery. It may be noted as well that with the exception of monitoring successful catches while passing with a partner and team relay races, there has been very little competitive activity in these initial practice environments.
The Basics (Practice #3):
Practice Plan #3 and all subsequent practice plans may also be held at an outdoor box (if available) in order to save costs, although usually it is best to practice in the same environment that players will typically be playing in. Having said that, if players have any aspirations for playing field lacrosse, accounting for the sun, wind and sometimes rain, while playing outdoors could also prove to have beneficial aspects for some.
Up until now, we have also yet to discuss what we say to the group (also when), and why we say what we do. In our first practice we spoke about the History Of Lacrosse among First Nations people, and of an Ancient Haudenosaunee Legend where the birds played against the animals, and how there is a place for everyone in lacrosse. In the second practice we discussed “hard work” and its importance in lacrosse and life, and in the third practice we like to talk about some of the all-time “great teams” and “teammates” in lacrosse (also what made them great). All three of these discussions commenced either before or after practice, but coaches still need to be unpredictable and spontaneous in their practice planning and reinforcement strategies, in order to keep the attention of kids/young adults (using a variety of teaching styles). Therefore, a story about the virtues of the game may be appropriate at any point during a practice, not just the beginning or the end.
The beginning drills in this practice focus on rehashing previously taught skills in a more dynamic fashion, namely loose balls and catching, which are important aspects in the modified lacrosse game at the end of practice. The remainder of the third practice focuses on basic defensive (“Open Floor Checking” – Variation #1 & #2), basic transition (Outlet Passes) and basic offensive skills (jukes, face dodges, roll dodges) as they relate to Game Play. The game itself is 3 vs. 3 and should be played from side-boards to side-boards with the 3×3 nets (or bottom-up nets) flush against the side-boards (with 8-foot creases taped onto the floor). Play starts with a loose ball from the coach (or pulling the ball out of the net after a goal), with 1-minute shift intervals (mixing up the players as best as possible – a balance of lefty’s and righty’s) and keeping track of the overall score only for 10+ year olds. Ideally there would be four nets on site, ensuring that a game could be played in both ends (maximum participation) need be, with everyone else standing at centre-floor.

Laxlife Rules for “Soft” Lacrosse:
1. THE BALL USED IN THIS PROGRAM IS A HIGH DENSITY FOAM (SOFT) BALL
2. THERE IS NO CONTACT BETWEEN STICK AND BODY (PENALTY SHOT)
3. THERE IS NO CONTACT STICK ON STICK “STICK CHECKING” (PENALTY SHOT)
4. THERE IS NO BODY CONTACT “BODY CHECKING” (PENALTY SHOT)
5. WHOEVER PUTS THE BACK OF THEIR STICK ON BALL RETAINS POSSESSION
6. THERE IS A SAFE CIRCLE OF 1 METRE AROUND THE PLAYER WITH THE BALL IN THEIR STICK
7. THIS PROGRAM DOES NOT UTILIZE GOALIES
8. THERE IS A 8-FOOT CREASE SURROUNDING THE GOAL (TRASH CAN or UPSIDE-DOWN NET)
9. SPORT SAFETY GOGGLES ARE RECOMMENDED ALTHOUGH NOT REQUIRED
10. ENSURE THAT BALLS NOT IN USE ARE KEPT IN A SAFE AREA AWAY FROM THE FIELD OF PLAY TO AVOID PLAYERS STEPPING ON A BALL
*CHANGES IF PLAYERS HAVE HELMETS & GLOVES: RULE #1 (RUBBER BALL USED), RULE #3 (STICK CHECKING PERMITTED), RULE #4 (“BUMPING HIPS” PERMITTED), RULE #5, #6, #9 (EXEMPT)*
Team #1 plays against Team #2 (cumulative score), in what is otherwise known as a “small-sided game.” This intermittent activity is excellent for players’ cardio and also gives them a chance to apply the skills they have learned thus far (getting lots of touches of the ball), while also having some fun. Coaches should suggest that players do static stretches at the end of practice, taking note of who actually does them, which primes them for future discussions.
Younger players will often benefit from more landmarks (pylons) on the floor
Progressing through the Laxlife Practice Plans in the order they appear is perhaps not as critical as the actual skill progressions within each practice. At times, going back and redoing a previous practice or specific drills from a previous practice that players struggled with, is more important than following the practice plans verbatim (it will not be a completely linear process).
The beauty of our Laxlife Practice Plan Creator is that it allows you to create your own practices, or take a Laxlife Plan and remodeling it to suit your team’s needs; refining them over time, each time you execute them. Coaches can get as creative as they’d like with all of the flexibility and variations within the Laxlife Drillbook. They can even create their own drills with our Laxlife Drill Creator. Drills don’t necessarily need to be run for the exact amount of time suggested; coaches should be looking to create practices that suit the needs of their team. At times, certain drills that are not well executed will need more practice. Coaches need to be able to make decisions while thinking on their feet (ad-libbing), perhaps even cutting off a drill mid-way through or skipping a drill entirely if a certain aspect of a skill needs further attention. It is up to the coach to feel out which drills are running smoothly and when drills are ready to be changed.
Coaches should always reflect and take notes on practices. It’s natural that some players will be more gifted in lacrosse than others, a bell-curve for the most part, but the team will only ever be as good as its weakest link. Our Drillbook & Playbook will hopefully give all lacrosse enthusiasts alike the opportunity to experience success in the game of lacrosse. Our website is an honest attempt to break a complex game down into its simplest form.

All-In-One Drill | TeamSnap
In this youth lacrosse video, Coach Shields and his lacrosse players demonstrate a lacrosse drill that incorporates all the basic lacrosse skills your girls’ lacrosse players will need to be complete players. These lacrosse skills include scooping, passing, catching, dodging, and over the shoulder catching.
The All-in-one drill is intended to give all the fundamental skills, scooping, passing, catching, dodging, and over-the-shoulder catching, all-in-one drill. So the idea is it emulates every skill you need to be a complete lacrosse player.
So, okay, you guys. This is the All-in-One drill, as you know, and we’re really trying to practice good fundamentals, good ground balls. We’re going to pick the ball up and do a give-and-go. We’re going to dodge our teammate and then we’re going to try and give her a good over-the-shoulder pass. She’s going to roll it back out to the next girl in line.
And it practices all your fundamental skills. The closer we can get to game speed on this, the better you’re going to be in the game at doing all of these things at full speed.
Yup, ground ball’s away, yeah.
Yeah, ground balls too. Anything you want to give her.
Good. Practicing different kinds of dodges, rolling, face dodge.
All right. Now, remember when you’re doing the all-in-one drill, you’re intending to execute all the steps in exactly the way you learned them. Getting low with two hands on the ground ball. Protecting your stick, passing and catching with good target and good accuracy, and completing your dodge effectively in order to build all the skills you need to be a complete lacrosse player.

Lacrosse Drills from “Lacrosse Drills & Practice Plans
Cradle the Ball Lacrosse Drills
Cradling is an essential skill for young players to learn right away.
What you need – Players should have their sticks and of course, full equipment to do this drill. Players can spend some time practicing this at home, because it does require some dexterity to do well.
How this drill works – Each player should have their stick and carrying a ball. Cradling is necessary to control the ball while the player is running down the floor and dodging other players on the field.
Coaches should notice the following: Grip, Wrist and arm action, and stick position. This is a skill based lesson – and not so much of a drill for the younger players.
Grip – The top hand should be in a position that allows it to control the bounce inside the pocket. The bottom hand will direct the stick when the player is running and if they are trying to make a pass or take a shot. When standing still, the top hand should be underneath the stick, and the bottom hand should be on top.
The wrist and arm action – These should work in conjunction with one another. The idea is to create the least amount of bounce in the pocket of the player’s stick. The forearm on the top hand should work like a hinge, and not moving all over the place. The wrist should not curl or flex too much.
Stick position – The stick position for the beginner should be horizontal when they are stationary. It is a standard pose for any player, except for when they may be experiencing pressure.
When a defender must shield their stick from a defender, the stick moves to a vertical position, almost parallel with the player’s body.
An easy drill to build on this position is just to have players carry the ball around, either on the run, or just walking around. Coaches should watch for technique.
Perimeter Pass and Shoot Lacrosse Drills
Quick passing to set up an open lane to shoot is crucial to gain good scoring opportunities.
What you need – Set up three attackers and three defenders in the offensive zone, with a goalie in the net. There is one ball in this drill.
How this drill works – Perimeter passing can help to open up holes in the defense to take a quick shot at the net.
In this drill, the three attacking players will stay on the perimeter and they will pass it quickly back and forth between one another while staying on the perimeter. The key to this drill is to make quick, accurate passes so the attackers can make the defenders stretch to the point they can open up a seam to make a quick dodge and take a shot.
Coaches should watch that the players are using proper technique in passes, catches and using good dodging techniques before taking the shot. The offense has 10 seconds to try and stretch the defense to the point where they are able to get a good shot on net. One point for a shot on net or a goal, or one point for a defensive play preventing a shot or goal.
Result – This is good one on one work for players, and it also work on a variety of other skills.

90,000 Free Workout Plans for Men
Certified Personal Trainers have the education and experience to develop training plans, but according to the American Board of Exercise (1), they can charge $ 40, $ 100, even $ 200 an hour, so hiring one may not be on the budget. In addition, the Internet and the library are useful resources for men to find free workouts. Whether you need to focus on a problem area or train like a superhero, free workout access is more than available.
ACE Your Workout
The American Council on Exercise (ACE) website (3) has an entire workout library that anyone with an Internet connection can access. It offers a variety of programs, from quick workouts to home workout plans. Most workouts can be done by men or women, but because of the target muscle groups, some tend to be developed for men, such as chest and back workouts. (4) Including exercises with dumbbells, body weight and resistance exercises with warm-up and warm-up exercises, the workout itself consists of:
• push-ups • screen pulling • dumbbell incline press • sitting rows • recumbent dumbbells fly • hip loops
ACE recommends doing two to three sets of 6-12 reps per exercise.
Get in superhero form
When actors play muscular superheroes, they usually hire personal trainers to help them get into superhero form. Free advice from Stuck (5) – Use a superset workout to build Superman’s physique. In supersets, four or five sets of two or three exercises are performed back to back with no rest between sets. Using one of the example stacks, you would do 20 jumps with a skater and then immediately do eight dips.Perform four sets of these two exercises four times before moving on to alternating 10 pulling exercises with 10 seated rows four times. The other two kits consist of 24 walking outlets with 12 dumbbells, as well as 15 outlets, 30 landmine turns, and 100 climbers. Remember to run each superset four times before moving on to the next.
Sometimes one part of your body is constantly holding on to excess fat or stubbornly resists your muscle sculpting efforts.Noting that the tummy tends to be a problem area for men, strength and fitness specialist and former fur seal Stu Smith invented the workout for Military.com (6) to help men reduce their options. Smith notes that 20 to 45 minutes of aerobic exercise four to five times a week, as well as core exercise, will help burn fat. The exercises he recommends for sculpting your core are done in sets of 10 to 20 reps each and include push-ups, crunches and crunches, hanging knees, lunges, and hips.Divide the exercises into sections if you want to work on the press in a row. Alternatively, if you want to do them all on the same day, wait 48 hours for your abs to recover before doing another core workout.
Boost Your Power
Strength training is a technique that improves speed and strength according to Harvard Health. (6) Strength and conditioning coach Robert dos Remedios found strength training so effective that he wrote an entire book about it.Male Health Education (2) can be found in most libraries, but it is also available on the Internet. It lays out a variety of workouts, including two, three, and four days of exercise, that men can build for themselves from an extensive exercise menu. An example of a full body workout for a 2 day workout might include:
• Squat Squats • Front Squats • Good Morning Sneakers • Bench Press • Flexing over alternating rows of dumbbell rows • Shoulder Press • Side-to-Side Pulling • Rotating Crunches
Do three to five sets of eight to fifteen repetitions of each exercise.Take minimal rest between sets to increase fatigue, but make sure you recover enough between sets to stay in shape.

Training programs in the girls’ hall
Initially, bodybuilding was a purely male occupation, which left its mark on training programs.
Today we will tell you how training for girls differs from standard schemes for men, and consider ready-made examples for training in the gym.
Differences in women’s training programs
The training program for girls in the gym has certain differences due to the physiological and biochemical characteristics of the body.
They affect the periodization of loads, the number of repetitions in the approach, rest pauses and other characteristics. But first things first.
Decreased testosterone level
Testosterone is a male sex hormone that is also produced in women. True, in much smaller quantities.
Testosterone has many functions. But we are interested in the following:
- influence on fat metabolism (fat burning effect)
- increase in physical performance
- stimulation of the growth of muscle volume and strength
The more testosterone in the body, the more pronounced these properties are.
This feature affects the training process:
- Weight less than
The relatively low level of strength does not allow you to engage in near-limit training weights (as is customary in men’s programs).
However, women are very comfortable with medium to light weights over a larger rep range.
In this case, the focus of training is the development of strength endurance.
- More focus on reducing fat
On the one hand, a small amount of testosterone in the body worsens fat burning, and on the other hand, the percentage of body fat in women is an order of magnitude higher by nature.
Hence the need for more energy-intensive training.
- Increased training frequency
The level of general physical performance in women is about the same as in men. But the speed of recovery after power loads is an order of magnitude higher.
This means more frequent training of individual muscle groups in a weekly cycle.
Higher body fat
The average rate of body fat for women is 20%, for men – 15%.
Historically, girls need more body fat to function properly. Hormone levels and women’s health depend on this.
Therefore, in order to lose weight, they need to put more effort both in the hall and in the kitchen.
One of the main features of the female body is the regular monthly cycle.
It is with this in mind that the training process is built and the periodization of loads is calculated.
Even in big sports on such days, classes continue, but their intensity and volume are reduced by 50%.We’re talking about fitness classes in the gym.
Therefore, during the monthly period the recommendations are as follows:
- If you are in severe pain, skip the workout
- In the early days of your cycle, prioritize upper body workouts, light cardio, or stretching
- Eliminate abdominal exercises
- Avoid heavy straining in the pelvic area
If your period is painless, you can exercise the leg muscles, but the load should be reduced.It is better to postpone work with heavy weights for this period.
In order to achieve a faster and more noticeable result in changing their figure, in addition to strength training, it is important for girls to monitor their nutrition.
Otherwise, the toned muscles will be hidden under the layer of subcutaneous fat.
A special diet is as important as training. Any exercise will help you burn calories and shape your figure.
If your goal is to lose weight, create a calorie deficit, and vice versa – if you want to gain muscle mass, increase your daily calorie intake.
Protein should be present in the diet on an ongoing basis in a ratio of 1-2 grams per 1 kg of body weight. This will help support not only the muscles, but also your skin, hair and nails.
The same applies to fats (mainly vegetable), which are involved in many metabolic processes, and carbohydrates necessary to maintain energy.
You can learn more about the correct ratio of BZHU in the diet in the articles on weight gain or drying.
Features of the female body allow you to pump muscles more often and more intensively.And the main focus is on groups such as triceps, abs, hips and buttocks.
Consider programs for different purposes and levels of training.
Gym program for girls
Many girls, choosing a training plan, do not achieve visible results because they do not take into account the individual characteristics of the female body.
In particular, in girls testosterone is secreted much less, so they physically cannot achieve the hypertrophy characteristic of the male body.On the other hand, women actively produce sex hormones such as estrogens and progestogens. It is these hormones that provide female fat deposition.
The training program for girls who first came to the gym and are just starting to exercise regularly should contain complex exercises that involve the whole body.
It is not necessary to spend all the time in the gym on simulators. Working with free weights (barbell and dumbbells) will allow you to work more muscles in less time and spend more energy, which is important for losing weight.
Warm up well for 10 minutes before exercising. Stretching should be done after training to improve flexibility and blood circulation in the muscles. It is also mandatory to warm up the working muscles before each exercise.
– Do abdominal exercises at the end of the workout, no more than 3 times a week.
– The correct technique for performing all exercises, and especially the basic ones, is mandatory.
For beginner girls, a full-body workout program works best every time they visit the gym.
For those who, due to their schedule, can skip fitness workouts, it is much more convenient to pay attention to all muscles every time than to increase the interval between training any muscle group due to skipping classes according to the plan.
For girls, flexibility in the gym is especially important, as not everyone will be able to exercise at full strength during menstruation. Distribute the intensity of the activity within each month depending on the menstrual cycle.
Within two weeks after ovulation, the woman’s body goes into a strict energy saving mode.This means that the intensity of the exercise can be reduced, and exercises for the legs and abs can be completely eliminated, since they will turn out to be almost useless. But in the first half month after the end of the menstrual cycle, on the contrary, load the muscles to the maximum. The effectiveness of the training will be high.
Those girls whose main goal is to lose weight must definitely eat right.
Running, walking “uphill” on a treadmill – 7-10 minutes
Bodyweight exercises – squats, push-ups, bends (or workout “7 minutes”) – 7-10 minutes
Basic training program for girls
Each exercise in the program is performed the specified number of times for 3 sets.
Training program in the gym for girls: how to make a set of exercises
Workouts in the gym for girls can be aimed at both losing weight and gaining muscle mass. But to a greater extent, nutrition plays a major role in obtaining results. Otherwise, women’s training will have its own characteristics and differences from men’s. How to correctly draw up a program at each of the training stages: at the beginning of the journey, for weight loss and relief, or for increasing muscle volume? Let’s take a closer look at the features of training for girls, what results and from what loads can be expected, and how to develop further.
How to train properly in the gym for girls
For girls who are not professional bodybuilders who just want to maintain muscle tone or achieve athletic form, the program scheme will be approximately the same at every stage of training. Only exercises for more complex ones will change, as well as the number of approaches and repetitions.
1. Weight of weights
The most important thing in women’s strength training is the working weight, which is different from men’s strength training with lifting heavy weights.Physiologically, the male body accepts hard training better, while women do not need it. Taking into account the physiology of women, the weight of the equipment should be moderate. At the initial stage, it is minimal, since the weakened muscles must get used to the load, then the load should gradually increase, but you should not train with the maximum weight.
The weight of the load should be such that it remains possible to perform 15-20 repetitions.
- If the weight is too heavy and the strength is only enough for 10-12 reps, you need to reduce the load.
- Conversely, if doing 15-20 reps with is too easy , then you need to increase it.
2. Training scheme
At the initial stage, the Fublady training scheme is relevant for girls. The essence of the program is that all major muscles receive the same load in one workout. Unlike split workouts, in which two or three muscle groups are worked out in one lesson. Full-body workout allows you to harmoniously develop a woman’s body, without turning it into a masculine likeness, and allows the muscles to recover faster, since they receive a moderate load.
An example of strength training for women in the gym
Consider a list of exercises and muscle groups that are loaded during such training:
Under this scheme, you can substitute any basic and isolating exercises that involve these muscle groups in work.
- The number of approaches of each exercise should not exceed three;
- and rest between sets should be 1-1.5 minutes, subject to 15-20 repetitions.
Also, this type of workout can be performed in a circle without pauses between exercises. Thus, after completing the entire list of exercises, a pause of 2-3 minutes is maintained, after which the complex is repeated two more times, in total – three circles.

3. Load frequency
Daily loads, even with light workouts, are strictly prohibited for both physically prepared girls and beginners. Skeletal muscles need to be given rest after exertion, which will provide further results, and not slow it down, as many believe.Adequate rest protects muscles and the body as a whole from overwork, and this, in turn, supports the metabolic rate, the rate of recovery of muscle fibers, strength and energy. Therefore, workouts should be performed at intervals of 1–2 days. The optimal amount of workouts is 3 times a week.
4. Cardio loads
In addition to strength training, the female body needs cardio loads, which not only contribute to weight loss, but also improve and restore blood supply to muscles and blood vessels.It’s important to start your strength workout with a quality warm-up consisting of cardio exercises, such as walking or jogging, an orbit track, an exercise bike, and the like. At the end of the workout, you should devote 10-20 minutes to cardio load, this will help restore blood circulation, burn additional calories from adipose tissue, which means lose weight, and gradually calm the heart muscle and finish the workout correctly, gradually lowering the heart rate by the end of the cardio exercise.
And also read what is a hitch and why is it needed?
Workout plan in the gym for girls for the week
As described above, this scheme implies the principle of fullbadi training, that is, for the whole body.The training is performed either in three circles, or three sets of each exercise for 15-20 repetitions. Remember to start with a 10-minute warm-up and end with cardio stretching after.
- Leg Press.
- Lunges scissors.
- Row of the upper block for the head.
- Reduction of hands in the butterfly trainer.
- Dumbbell press.
- Extension of the arms in the upper block of the crossover.
- Dumbbell Rotation Curl.
- Abs: twisting on an incline bench + raising the legs on the uneven bars.
- Machine Leg Extension.
- Machine Leg Curl.
- Pull of the horizontal block to the belt.
- Dumbbell bench press.
- Barbell pull to the chin.
- Extension of the arms with a dumbbell from behind the head.
- Dumbbell curl with hammer grip.
- Press: repeat the first day.
- Leg Exercise.
- Abduction of the legs in the simulator.
- Standing dumbbell set.
- Extension of the arms with a dumbbell in the slope.
- Bar Curl.
- Press: repeat the first day.
- Any gym workout routine for women should include leg exercises in every session. Firstly, it will allow you to spend more energy, because training the largest muscles requires more strength.Secondly, it contributes to the formation of the correct forms, relative to the female constitution, and the burning of fats in this zone, since the female body tends to accumulate fats there.
- The duration of the workout should not exceed 1.5 hours, including cardio, cool-down and warm-up. Training for two hours will not give the best effect, but, on the contrary, will lead to overwork, and no result will be obtained from training.
- Do not dwell on the problem area, be it the abdomen or the thighs.Fatigue of one muscle group with more than three exercises will not improve the shape and speed up the result. This is because fat is not burned locally, it is better to pay attention to all the muscles, then the correct proportions of the body will be maintained, and the fat will go out evenly.
- Do not do full-body workouts for two days in a row, during the day the large muscles will not have time to fully recover, and the constant load on the overworked muscles is stress for the body.
When the result will be seen
As for beginners, the first thing that happens to their body is the strengthening of muscles and ligaments, that is, the body is prepared for full-fledged loads.Atonic muscles begin to thicken, get used to strength work. This process takes approximately one to two months. In this case, the muscles change shape, begin to tighten and decrease in volume, and not only due to fat burning, but due to the density of muscle fibers and lymphatic drainage, in which excess water leaves the muscles.
During this period, with the help of strength loads, you can lose from 3 to 5 kg, but everything will depend on the metabolic rate, weight, age and the quality of training.
How to continue exercising?
After one or two months of training, only the first results are visible – the muscles become elastic, excess weight goes away, the body gradually acquires distinct and beautiful female forms.But it is not worth stopping at this, even if the result is completely satisfactory. The effect will not persist if you stop exercising, and continuing training will either maintain the result or improve it if necessary.
Next, you need to change the training program. First you need to change the exercises, this will give the muscles new impetus, and the progress will be obvious. If the load is not increased over time, even if the workout has borne fruit before, then after a while it stops working, since the body is used to it.The same goes for increasing your working weight. Muscles grow stronger over time and need the appropriate load. This does not mean that such training will lead to an increase in muscle mass. No, the female body is not predisposed to that. On the contrary, they will constantly improve the feminine form through an adequate power load.
After mastering the fullbadi workouts, you can switch to three-day split workouts, in which not the whole body will be worked out at the same time, but two or three muscle groups.For example:
- Day 1 : 4-5 leg exercises, 2-3 deltoids and 2 abs.
- Day 2 : 2-3 back exercises, 2-3 chest exercises and 2 abs.
- Day 3 : 2-3 triceps exercises, 2-3 biceps exercises and 2 abs.
You need to perform the exercises for 15 repetitions in three sets.
More about split training →
Before starting a workout, there are some individual factors that will make a program effective.Firstly, there should be no restrictions and contraindications to training, any pathologies and exacerbations of diseases, as well as after injuries. With such features, a qualified trainer should draw up an individual training program. You also need to understand that with obesity, such training will not always be appropriate, the first thing to start with is adjusting the diet and choosing a suitable physical activity with the help of a doctor. For the rest, patience and work are needed.

Training program for girls in the gym
As you can see, the emphasis should be on training the lower body, where the main problem areas are.Of course, you also need to train the upper body, but we give preference to the hips, buttocks and abdominal muscles.
Many girls believe that with the help of workouts in the gym, you can tighten and enlarge your breasts. Unfortunately, this is not possible, since the breasts are made up of adipose and connective tissues, which cannot be trained like muscles.
By doing bench press and other chest exercises, you will only widen your torso, which will visually only reduce the volume of your chest. If you reduce the waist, the chest will visually become larger and more attractive.In order to do this, you do not need to perform side bends or lateral twists. This will only pump up your oblique abdominal muscles, making your waist even wider. You just need to lose weight and regularly do regular crunches for the rectus abdominis muscle.
Now more about the training program for girls in the gym . The optimal number of workouts is three times a week, every other day. A rest day between workouts will allow the body to recuperate. At the initial stage, you need to train the whole body for training according to the “Fullbody” system.Rest between sets for 30-60 seconds. In heavier exercises, you can rest for about 2 minutes between sets, but not longer. The shorter the rest, the better. The goal of training is a toned, relief and beautiful body.
GIRL BEGINNER GYM PROGRAM
1) Twisting lying 4 sets to failure
2) Barbell Squat 4 sets of 15-20 reps
3) Hyperextension 4 sets of 15-20 reps
4) Row of the upper block 3 sets of 15 reps
5) Seated Dumbbell Press 3 sets of 15 reps
6) Knee push-ups 3 sets to failure
Engage in this program three times a week, every other day (Mon, Wed, Fri).
Your primary concern is learning the correct exercise technique.
At this stage, do light weight and high repetition exercises to stimulate the release of the necessary hormones and develop the correct technique.
Stop the first 2-3 exercises (crunches, squats and hyperextension) a week before your period. Instead, do 30 minutes of cardio after your strength workout. That is, do the vertical block row, dumbbell press and push-up first, and then 30 minutes of cardio workout (treadmill or stationary bike).After your period ends, do all the exercises in the program again.
This program is intended for beginners. The duration of the program can be from 2 to 6 months, depending on the adaptive capabilities of your body. You can order from us an individual training and nutrition program that will maximize the achievement of your goals.
ADVANCED GIRL TRAINING PROGRAM IN GYM
1) Crunches on the Roman chair 4 x 25-30
2) Sumo Squats 4 x 12-15
3) Leg press in the simulator 4 x 12-15
4) Deadlift on straight legs 4 x 12-15
5) Draft of the upper block 3 x 12-15
6) Reduction of hands in the simulator 3 x 12-15
7) Extension of the arms down on the block 3 x 12-15
Engage in this program three times a week, every other day (Mon, Wed, Fri).
Start each workout with a general warm-up to prepare the body for the upcoming stress and avoid injury. The total duration of the warm-up is approximately 5-10 minutes. You can do a simple set of light exercise or run a little at an easy pace.
Your first priority is to learn the correct technique for performing new exercises.
Squats, presses, and deadlifts are key to the workout program as they are multi-joint core exercises that use more muscles to better stimulate hormone release and burn more calories.
Working weights are slightly higher and the rep range is slightly less than the initial training program, which promotes better hormonal and metabolic response.
Stop the first 4 exercises (crunches, squats, leg presses, and deadlifts) one week before your period. Instead, do 30 minutes of cardio after your strength workout.
In the future, when the muscles adapt to the load and it becomes easy for you to engage in this program, you can add exercises and make changes to the program.Supersets can be used to increase the intensity of the workout. For example, a sophisticated version of the advanced program might look like this:
1) Crunches on the Roman chair + lifting the legs in the hang (without pause) 4 x 20-25

At 3-4 weeks of the menstrual cycle, you need to regulate the amount of carbohydrates in your diet, since it is during this period that the body especially stores excess calories in fat. During this period, exclude lower body exercises and, if necessary, you can reduce working weights, reduce the number of approaches and increase the number of repetitions to 20. After menstruation, you can easily increase the load, as the muscles will recover and gain strength.
Good luck with your training!

Training program for girls for three days in the gym: start tomorrow!
Quite often, having signed up for the gym, girls do not know how to create a workout suitable for themselves, where to start and how to end it.We offer you a ready-made program so that tomorrow you can have a useful lesson.
For girls who have just started to play sports, we advise you to include exercises for all muscle groups in the training program in the gym. They should be done regularly three times a week, but even if you miss one workout, none of the muscle groups will be left idle for seven whole days.
Try to consistently have a break of one day between workouts. For example, arrange them this way: Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.Try not to skip classes in order to achieve the desired result as soon as possible.
If you want to lose weight, you shouldn’t train all day long. Your workout should take 40-60 minutes, and you should also pay attention to proper nutrition and reducing the amount of calories consumed, but not to a protein diet, Kremlin or any other that can weaken the body. On non-workout days, do cardio workouts to keep things going faster.
So, any training program in the gym for girls should begin with a warm-up.Start by running for 7-10 minutes on a treadmill, then knead your whole body using standard exercises: bends, lunges, arm raises, squats, and so on.
Then start the basic exercises:
- Barbell Squat – 15 Reps
- Lunges with dumbbells in the hands – 20 times
- One-handed dumbbell row – 20 times
- Upper block pull – 12 times
- Incline dumbbell press – 12 times
- Twisting – 20 times
Do this set of exercises on the same day every week.To begin with, do one approach, but over time, increase the number to two, and then three approaches.
On another day of the week, you need to change the exercises:
- Rod rod to belt – 15 times
- Pull of the block to the chest with a narrow grip – 12 times
- Squats “Plie” with dumbbells – 15 times
- Lunges – 20 times
- “Book” on the press – 20 times
- Hyperextension – 15 times
End the week with this girls gym program:
- Deadlift – 15 times
- Squats with one leg on the bench – 20 times
- Row of the lower block to the belt while sitting with a narrow grip – 12 times
- Bench press dumbbells – 12 times
- Set with dumbbells – 12 times
Finish each workout with stretching – this will help make the muscles and ligaments more elastic, reduce muscle pain after workouts and even avoid injuries in the future.
Now you have a training program for girls in the gym – it’s time to start acting!
By the way, have you already heard that very soon we will arrange a very cool event? No time to explain, tickets are at link . Let’s meet on May 20 at the brightest and most memorable event from beauty.ua!

Want more women leaders? Penguin Hall Academy has a plan for
Pengiun Hall offers an exclusive leadership curriculum designed to bridge gender confidence and the leadership gap
Wenham, MA North Shore.The Academy at Penguin Hall was selected from a competitive list of candidates for national girls’ schools to implement The Leadership Course for the 2020-2021 academic year.
“We are deliberately developing the next generation of women CEOs, entrepreneurs, community activists, government and business leaders based on what research shows will have the most significant impact on the trajectory of a young woman,” said Molly Martins, founder president of the Academy. at Penguin Hall.“To support our rigorous college preparation and leadership development program, we even have a boardroom where our students hold meetings. Just like our students participate in math or science classes, they now take leadership classes in applied neuroscience in a state-of-the-art boardroom. ”
The program was developed by professors at Harvard University and continue to be consulted; The United States Military Academy at West Point; Duke University Center for Leadership and Ethics; Tufts University; and the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University; as well as other leading education experts and experts in gender-based leadership development.
“Our research shows that girls’ confidence and leadership gaps begin to show in adolescence, so this is a critical moment in a young woman’s development to fill those gaps with evidence-based practices,” said Dr. Diane Ryan, a former deputy chief of the Department. of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership at West Point; and the current Associate Dean of the College of Civil Life, Jonathan M. Tisch at Tufts University. “By incorporating these important leadership skills and abilities into high school, we set girls on the path to success.”
Dr. Ryan served as Curriculum Development Advisor with Julie Carrier, Lead Developer The Leadership Course and No. 1 mentor for young women ” the world’s leading coaches and Thinkers 50 .
“We do not expect a literary class student to automatically master algebra. It’s the same with leadership. These skills need to be taught and taught the right way, ”said Julie Carrier, a former senior management consultant at the Pentagon and a member of the US advisory board.N. Foundation program Girl Up . “While many schools recognize the need for this programming, they may not be able to conduct research and effectively implement evidence-based programs. By bringing together several of the country’s leading experts, we have created a program that suits teachers, staff and students. ”
The Leadership Course is a first-of-its-kind academic leadership curriculum based on applied neuroscience for high school girls taught during an academic school day.It is conducted as part of a program that involves teachers (as certified school leadership trainers) and students, both learners and leaders.
Dr. Carol Kaufman, founder of the Coaching Institute at Harvard Medical School and curriculum consultant, takes a long-term approach to investing in high school leadership development programs.
“Traditional learning-only approaches prepare girls for success in the classroom but fail in the boardroom,” said Dr.Kaufman. “These outdated attitudes are doing girls a disservice in a world that requires perseverance, resilience, strong leadership and self-esteem to be successful. If we want more women leaders, this is what we need to do. ”
The program adapts best practices in corporate leadership development, guided by gender research on girls’ needs and positive youth development, to deliver a curriculum that includes:
- Neurology of confidence
- Overcoming Impostor Syndrome
- Character Strengths
- Leading effective teams
- Mastery of Public Speaking
- Development of a growth mindset
The Leadership Course is the result of nearly four years of research and development.Pilot testing showed statistically significant improvements in leader personality, academic performance, teamwork, and belonging. Thorough assessment of the impact of the program will continue as it is implemented.
Dr. Nicole Cervantes, Director of Student Leadership, said: “I am thrilled to bring this program to our community and reinforce the message of empowering young women. Leadership development at Penguin Hall Academy has always been an integral part of our program’s mission.It is an honor to be selected to work with such an outstanding group of leaders to support our students and prospective students. ”
Thanks to the new program and the interest of local families and prospective students, Penguin Hall Academy is still accepting applications for all grades 9-12 in the fall. Visit the Penguin Hall at www.PenguinHall.org
Horizons Program, 25
The shift that resulted in a tenth of the curriculum on Horizons was challenging.Again, the support of the teachers was critical. “There were blows, and that’s to be expected from such a large enterprise, but I have always admired how forward-thinking and open-minded the faculty were about the program,” says Ms Norris. “It was a big commitment, but in the end we created a more rigorous academic program, even with reduced academic time, and the faculty went along with that.”
As Ms. August reminds us, by the 1999-00 school year, the program was anchored in the MHS culture.During her tenure, Ms August Horizons added resume writing as well as application and interview process for senior internships. In 2006-07, the Greenhouse Business project expanded and students began creating ceramics for selling Horizons plants. The program is also firmly rooted in Berkshire.
“I am proud of the program’s ability to build relationships between the school and the community,” she says. “But what I’m most proud of is that Horizons is firmly entrenched throughout the school.People couldn’t see Miss Hall without seeing Horizons. ” When Ms. August retired in June 2008, the number of volunteer hours per year exceeded 10,000, and nearly 70 sites hosted Horizons students.
“Right from the start, there was always the right person to take Horizons to the next level,” says Ms Norris. “Ellen was an entrepreneur and saw the potential. Marcia gave it the necessary structure, and Alison took it to the next level, reflecting the evolution of ministry training.Colleges and universities have also moved in this direction over the past twenty-five years, requiring students to take what they have learned and change the world for the better before they graduate. ”
During Ms Basdekis’s tenure, Horizons truly thrived not only in terms of sites, hours of volunteer work and the geographic reach of its partnerships, but also in terms of program elements – types of experiences for students.
“We have broadened our understanding of what a student can do and what it looks like,” explains Ms Basdekis.“At the same time, we have strengthened existing partnerships and connections between students off and on campus. We’ve also adjusted the timetable and the ways in which we find time for students to reflect, decipher, and reflect on their Horizons experience. ”

An eclectic group of six middle-aged teens vie for the title of spelling champion of a lifetime.Openly revealing hilarious and touching stories from their family life, teens utter a series of (potentially invented) words, hoping to never hear the heartbreaking, inflated, life-affirming “ringing” bell to signal a spelling error. Six Spellers enter; one writer leaves! At least the losers will get a box of juice.

How to train if there is no time for training
Jim Wendler is an American athlete, coach and already a writer.He is known for his delicacy in words (fuck you, pay me – this is how one of his books begins), for his gentle training approach, as well as for his own “5/3/1” program.
Jim began his path to strength training with powerlifting, trained under the guidance of the famous Louis Simmons (by the way, read about his almost complete namesake in the text “10 richest fitness gurus”). Wendler achieved impressive results: with a height of 177 cm and a weight of 125 kg (at the peak of his career), squats with a barbell – 455 kg, deadlift – 318 kg, bench press – 307 kg.
At the age of 34, he practically retired, lost 23 kg and developed his own training system, which, in his opinion, allows him to exercise the way he wants.
Here’s what Jim himself says: “I want to do different things and still be able to puff in the gym. I want to be agile, flexible, strong and as good as possible. This is how I arrived at 5/3/1 (see Wendler’s famous workout program here).
What to do if you cannot exercise regularly
From November to mid-January, I have to travel a lot: my family is scattered across four states, and we visit everyone from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I’m not a fan of travel at all, I prefer to stay in my fortress, in a familiar environment and with a familiar program.
But with all the travel (add to family matters the holiday workload in business), you need to find time for training. You can’t just pick up and forget about the hardware.It helps us set goals and move towards them in a disciplined manner, releases negative emotions, and gives us a positive boost. I’m not saying that for me training is the raison d’être, but still they occupy an important place in life.
So what about when family and career leave no time for a regular program? Shorten it and keep doing it. You just need to correctly plan everything. During busy periods, I leave two workouts per week. You can practice more often (I will explain later how), if you have time, but these two should be mandatory.You can spread them as you like, but I advise you to insert at least one day of rest between them.
- Bench press
- Auxiliary movements
- Auxiliary movements
These are my basic exercises, you can choose any others that help you achieve your goals or are needed for your sport.
I prefer to do no more than two “big” exercises per workout; it is better to do two (or even one) properly than five somehow.
Since you will only be doing twice a week, you need to invest as much as you can in each workout. Put all personal and career concerns out of your head and focus on iron. As challenging as life is, find two hours a week for your hobby and rock out.
How to choose auxiliary exercises
Ancillary exercises are selected according to two principles:
- How much free time is there – if you got into the hall for only 45 minutes, then reduce the back room to 1-3 movements.If there is more time – to taste.
- How many days of rest until the next time – if you come to the hall the day after tomorrow, it is better not to abuse it. Having gone through with volume, you will not have time to recover and give all your best in the main exercises of the subsequent workout. If you come back in five days, then go for a walk to the fullest.
If you, like me, are seriously into triathlon, then look for a good gym with reliable equipment – high-quality bars, stands and benches.I look in advance for normal rooms in the places where I go.
Unfortunately, it is not always possible to find good equipment – in this case, I conduct additional training with what is in the local gym. You can also add it if you want to practice 3-4 times a week, even on business trips.
It would be possible in ordinary “fitness” to try to bench press lying on a narrow bench or squat with a bendable bar, hanging all the different pancakes on it, but I prefer not to risk it.Nothing good will come of it, just ruined training and injuries.
Almost any room is suitable for this lesson:
I think so: it is better to pump on a bunch of simulators than to try to train hard with bad iron.
If you have good equipment and enough free time, we will modify the additional training (after completing the main A and B) into a more useful one:
Again – I have collected auxiliary exercises for progress in their main ones, but you can include others that are more necessary and more effective for you.Again, this workout is in addition to basic A and B. Always do them first.
When there is no time at all on weekdays, it remains to train only on weekends. To do this, I modify the program by dividing the body into top and bottom.
Add to this any utility you want – squats with a barbell on the chest, leg press, bench press of dumbbells, various deadlifts, etc. The main thing is not to overdo it with intensity, but increase the volume.
When you can’t get into the gym at all, find time at least for morning exercises and exercises for mobility. I recommend Defranco’s G8:
Or an abbreviated version of Parisi’s workout.
My travel bag always contains a piece of PVC pipe, a tourniquet and a lacrosse ball; this is what I usually do with them:
- Roll out the outer surface of the thigh and pelvis with a tube: 100 times each leg
- Massage with a ball of the piriformis muscle: 2 minutes per side
- Squat without weights: 10-20
- Swing legs (front-back): 10-20
- Side lunges: 10-20
- Squat on one leg: 10-20
- Rock Climber: 10-20
- Legs in a lying position (Groiner): 10-20
- Rollback hamstrings: 10-20
- Fire hydrants: 10-20
- Scrolling hands with a tourniquet: 10-20
- Bridge: 10-20
Train, not “fit in”
Training is an important and very rewarding part of our life.We don’t just go to “fitness” and do a bunch of goofy exercises to sweat; we train with specific goals. With age, we have more and more tasks and responsibilities, so there is little time left for classes, they need to be carefully planned. This is the key to success: decide on all the priorities, set aside time for hardware, develop a plan and follow it.

Jason Lezak Workout Program

|Download Exercises by Month->|
Jason Lezack (born 12.11.1975) is a professional swimmer from the USA, winner of four Olympic gold medals. The main specialty is 50 and 100 meters high / st.
Lezac is known for being one of the rare Olympic swimmers without a professional coach.
Jason Lezak’s workout routine has been posted on bodybuilding.com. We provide you with its translation into Russian and adaptation.
As a sprinter, you should pay as much attention to the gym as to the pool.It’s a big misconception that gym sprinters should only use heavy weights to increase strength.
Pool swimmers training program includes several phases, such as endurance, strength, speed. The same should be projected for the exercises on land.
To get the most out of your exercise, you need to change what you do. This is due to the fact that the body gets used to the monotonous load.
If the season starts in April and lasts until September, you need to balance your training program, both on water and on land.
April should be endurance training, May strength, June speed, July strength, August speed. By the end of summer, you will be stronger, faster, and more resilient.
This is a difficult question. Not all exercises will benefit you in the pool.
The most important thing is to choose exercises that will not put undue stress on the legs and back. This is why I don’t do exercises like squats, barbell lifts, or deadlifts. The risk of injury from these exercises is higher than the potential benefit from them.
I would suggest 3 days of gym workout per week. For example, Monday, Wednesday, Friday. There are 4 exercises for every day. There are 12 exercises in total.
Incline Dumbbell Press
Arm Extension with Upper Block Grip from the Top
Lower Block Rows
Seated dumbbell press (lift up)
Arm extension with the upper block handle with a bottom grip
|9000 dumbbell (biceps)|
Rows of the upper block in front of you
Alternate bench lift
Lying Leg Curl
Incline Leg Press
The exercises listed above should be performed in pairs supersets “.
That is, for example, Monday – you do one set of dumbbell press lying on an incline bench, then one set of extension of the arms with the handle of the upper block with a grip from above.
Next, alternately perform two more approaches. Then move on to two more exercises of the day.
As mentioned earlier, the first month should consist of endurance training.
The first week you do 12 reps, the second week 15, the third week 20, and the fourth 25.The goal is to try to maintain the same weight as the reps increase throughout the month. Rest between exercises should be 15 seconds.
