SPARTACUS TEEN WORKOUT FEATURING FUNK JR (VIDEO)

SPARTACUS TEEN WORKOUT - MUSCLE BUILDING AND FAT BURNING

I love living with my teen. It is so cool being able to workout with Funk Jr anytime we want. Whether it's doing a workout, playing basketball, football or flexing in the mirror (seriously)...I think my narcissism may have rubbed off on the poor child. There is nothing like spending quality time with my boy and advocate a healthy lifestyle at the same time.


We shot this workout last week to address all the teens that have been asking me for advice on training. I go off on a little tangent during the intro to dispel the myths that working out during your teens will STUNT YOUR GROWTH.

Funk Jr. was a true warrior on this hot and humid day. He's 14, almost 6ft and as he puts it "WANTS TO BE JACKED" - lol

7 TIPS FOR TEENS WHEN STRENGTH TRAINING



1. Start with basic body weight exercises for a few weeks (such as sit-ups, pushups, and pull-ups) before using weights if you have never picked up weights before – Spartacus Bodyweight Workout

2. Workout with weights about three times a week. Give your body, muscles, tendons and bones time to rest and recuperate by avoiding weight training on back-to-back days.

3. Warm up for 5-10 minutes before each session. Make sure you warm up with a slight jog, skipping rope or dynamic warm up to get the blood flowing to the muscles.

4. Spend no more than 40 minutes in the weight room or training to avoid fatigue or boredom. (Unless you are training for a sport or something specific.)

5. Work more reps; avoid maximum lifts. Unless you have a Trainer, coach to supervise you, avoid heavy lifting and stick to interval training or lifting lower weight for more reps.

6. Ensure you're using proper technique through supervision. Improper technique may result in injuries, particularly in the shoulder and back.

7. Stretch your muscles after training, Cool down for 5-10 minutes after each session.

  1. Whether you are a fan or an athlete, the most vital and comprehensive knowledge about any type of sports can only be clearly understood through the best sports books written either by the champion athlete or a veteran coach. They are the most reliable persons because they have experienced the best and worst of the games and the ins and outs of every game Sport Supplies i really like this. thank you..

  2. Hey Funk,
    Really appreciate those workouts. Just one question, I tried a few spartacus workouts and they seem to b v heart and leg intensive. I always walk out with wobbly legs and panting but my arms seem quite fine. Will I be able to tone my arms this way?
    Thanks,
    Appreciate if you could reply
