The best workout routine is the routine that is fun and at the same time optimally adapted to your physical requirements, your metabolism and everyday life. Most of it all, it has to be highly individual.
Again, as is often the case, there are many conspiracy theories such as – abdominal training is the most important thing for a flat stomach, jogging is essential for fat loss, you have to go to the gym 7 times a week for maximal success, etc.. It is important to me to clarify things here as well.
First and foremost is that we work out a training program that can be implemented by you in your daily schedule. Depending on your individual goals and a couple of other important pillars, we will find the optimal strategy for you and your body.
Again, the individual approach is important to me because not every person has the same capacities, goals and opportunities. A competitive athlete has different priorities and time options than a person who has had little in common with sports until now.
It’s not about putting you into a program by force, but rather developing a strategy that is optimally adapted to YOU and can be used by you LONG TERM!
1. Neurotransmitter profile / preferences / personality
Have you ever wondered why there are people who love sports and others who hate sports?
And why certain training routines work perfectly for certain groups of people and not for others?
An explanation for this phenomenon is provided by our personal neurotransmitter profile.
Neurotransmitters (brain messengers) such as dopamine, serotonin, acetylcholine, … determine our personality and thus also all mental and physical processes! Above all, topics such as motivation, willingness to perform and daily form are largely determined by neurotransmitters.
For this reason, it is important to me to also determine your individual neurotransmitter balance, in order to adapt the optimal training plan to your individual personality and your neurotransmitter profile. Passion and fun in your exercise routine is one of the most important factors in long-term success.
Since certain exercises are often not possible to perform correctly due to lacking mobility, it is essential to tailor your strategy around your biomechanical abilities. For this, I’ll use the biomechanical analysis which we had a look at during our first appointment. With that it is possible for me to work out the appropriate exercises that will help you achieve your goals.
3. Hormone balance
Your hormone balance also plays a major role in the design of your individual training routine. Only if you can recover both hormonally and neuronally from your training, do you make maximum progress. That is why I prescribe a different routine to a person who has problems with too high or too low cortisol levels, for example, than a person who is full of testosterone (eg young men or women with PCOs).
If you are a woman, the top priority is to include the monthly cycle in the plan because the motivation, motivation, and recovery capacity vary tremendously during each cycle.
