Train Smart with Robin Anzengruber
Robin Anzengruber has a long background within weight training that goes about 17 years back in time. That's where he set his foundation for his knowledge within anatomy and his understanding for the functions of the human body.
In this video Robin is going through leg training and explaining part of his philosophy around how to add resistance when training legs. We get to see a little different execution of both new but also existing classic exercises which with minor adjustments will feel a lot more challenging than before. Robin goes through all movements thoroughly and explains the different functions and what actually happens during the movement.
"There is a million different kickback variants but common for them all is the technique."
Robin explains what's important to think about when it comes to correct execution to get the most out of each exercise and find contact with the muscles.
"When we train like this we don't always have to go to maximum failure in the exercise itself, there'll be automatic failure in the muscle we are training."
Robin says that training smart doesn't mean to cheat the weight up and don't perform the movements strict. It is all about "muscle connection" and it is important to find contact with the muscle and learn to manage the technique. Correct technique can be challenging in the beginning, but practice makes perfect! Keep doing it and it'll stick eventually
