In our latest video, "Home Workout - Pull Ups, Dips, Middle Splits & More," Rad shares one of his latest home UMS workouts for upper body strength and lower body flexibility.
If you are looking to get stronger and more flexible without going to the gym, then Rad’s latest YouTube workout might be your answer.
Let's explore the primary movement used:
- Pull-Ups: A Power Move for Upper Body Strength
Pull-ups are a fantastic way to build strength in your upper body, especially your back and arms. Rad guides you through this exercise to ensure you're doing it right. Even if you can't do a full pull-up yet, don't worry! Rad shows variations for different levels. This exercise helps in building lean muscle and boosting your overall upper body strength.
- Pike Push-Ups: Target Your Shoulders and Upper Back
Pike push-ups are a great addition to your workout, targeting the shoulders, upper back, and triceps. This exercise is perfect for those who want to improve their upper body strength without heavy weights. Rad demonstrates how to perform pike push-ups with proper form, ensuring you get the most out of this exercise. It’s ideal for building functional upper body strength.
- Middle Splits: Flexibility for a Balanced Body
Improving flexibility is crucial for overall fitness. The middle split exercise in Rad's workout focuses on this. It enhances your lower body flexibility, which is essential for better mobility and balance. This segment is great for relieving tight muscles and improving your range of motion.
- Shoulder Mobility and Strength: Functional Fitness
Shoulder health is vital for everyday activities. This workout includes exercises to improve shoulder mobility and strength. You’ll work through a full range of motion. This is key for maintaining healthy, functional shoulders. It also helps in preventing common shoulder issues.
These are just the primary exercises. The workout has a whole lot more in it that you will have to watch to see …
You’ll notice these primaries incorporate the key principles of UMS, where we use opposing movement patterns to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the workout.
Plus, we develop strength and flexibility by training upper and lower body in the same workout, thereby hacking the nervous system to amplify the effectiveness of the stretches.
Remember, stretching once your nervous system is fatigued delays the natural inhibitors that would otherwise kick in immediately and reduce the amount you can stretch.
This principle is one of the key secrets to how we deliver such good results for our members in the UMS Tribe!
