This program will help build muscle and correct muscle imbalances that often occur for riders. Over the 8 week plan, you will get a taste of what types of movements that are utilized in the more detailed 1:1 training Lewie’s Body Shop has to offer.
Each week, you will be given 2 arm/core days and 2 lower body day workouts/week from which you will build upon to increase your strength, stamina, flexibility and suppleness. Whether you are a professional looking to stay in shape or an adult ammy/junior young rider trying to get more out of the time spent with your horse, this program is designed to help you achieve your goals. You can customize the program to fit your schedule and your needs regardless of your level.
Access to a gym with full equipment is preferable for this program, but all movements can be modified to be done nearly anywhere, with very little equipment.
A 5-10 minute warm-up of dynamic stretches prior to your training sessions and a 5-10 minute cool-down of static stretches at the completion of your training sessions is recommended. See the sample sessions below.
In addition to the training sessions listed, it is extremely important to get enough of rest, drink plenty of water and consume a nutrient-dense diet. These are equally as vital to your health as your training sessions. Please keep in mind that this program is a general fitness program. If you want more, consider a 1:1 coaching plan to develop a program designed specifically for you and your goals.
