Shock Your Body to Get the Results You Want!
by Suzie Cooney, CPT of Suzie Trains Maui
You ask, “shock your body”? Yes indeed, train really hard! Want to make serious changes in your body, read on. I’ve written many articles about how to avoid the dreaded plateau and burn extra body fat and now it’s time again to revisit this well-known training topic. I want to share in this article a couple different types of training methods that may just help you get through that time when your body is not responding and needs something very different to make these changes, or shed those last 5-10lbs. Let’s burn that fat baby!
I often whisper into the ears of my clients when they are grunting in the sand, covered from head to toe in sweat and I’m trying to get just one more rep out of them, as their teeth are clinched, I softly say, ” this is where your body changes”. I get the rep and they look at me like I have three heads, but they did it and get the results!
My True Collection team mate, Greg Minnaar trains hard! To pull these tricks and to maintain this kind of speed his routine is intense. Check out these photos:

There are many styles and types of training that offer many good results. Training needs to be fun, BUT it also must be effective and not lead to injury. Starting with a good base of fitness first before exploring more “hard core” training methods is highly recommended. If you go out of the gate too hard, or mix too many different types of training together all at once, for example, plyometrics, interval training or increase the numbers of pounds you’re lifting, there’s a good chance you could get hurt and you have a set back.
