The variety of muscle building classes on GuavaPass is becoming increasingly popular among men looking to gain muscle, reduce fat and build overall strength. From CrossFit classes to traditional weight lifting sessions and combat sports, GuavaPass is the one-stop-shop for your muscle building goals. But where do you start? Let’s have a look at the Top 5 GuavaPass Classes for Muscle Building to get those #GuavaGains…
1. Calisthenics/Body Weight classes
In order to lift up or push away your own body i.e. during resistance training, the muscle growth associated is one of size, definition and strength. Calisthenics (a.k.a. bodyweight) style classes are one of the most effective ways to increase muscle development across the entire body, especially in the arms and abs. Calisthenic advocates have built their sculpted figures with slow and controlled movements, and by removing all assistance (overtime) on their dips, pullups and pushups. Check out how you can build a calisthenics body here.
2. Muay Thai/Combat workouts
If your fitness goal is to develop muscle size and strength, Muay Thai classes are one of the best for muscle development, flexibility and tone. The cardio and resistance based workout torches fat and creates some serious size in the arms and legs, along with rippling definition in the abs. The extreme strength required to perform common kicks, jabs and hooks effectively is the driving force in the increasing muscle size. Over 25% of the studios on the GuavaPass platform offer combat sports, including the training spots for many UFC fighters, Olympic competitors, and professional athletes.
Lifting heavy for short sets and with a few minutes of rest in between is the golden workout for muscle size and development. If the focus of your fitness journey is to increase muscle mass, weightlifting should be completed at least 3 times per week, dedicating days to a specific muscle group i.e. chest, back, arms, legs and abs. From 7 am to 10 pm, GuavaPass allows members to book into Open Gym sessions. These bookings give you 90 minutes access to a range of partner gyms where you can lift, push and workout as you please.
4. Personal training
Weightlifting if done properly is guaranteed to increase muscle size and definition. But, where do you start? In order to see a sizable difference in your body after a month or two of lifting weights, you need a plan tailored to your needs. Finding the right personal trainer who is experienced and can deliver results isn’t easy. Luckily along with group classes, GuavaPass members have access to personalised training sessions available to book for any fitness goal. Sessions are able to be booked every few hours at partner gyms.
5. Strength building yoga
One indication of a great yoga class is often the attendance of a number of extremely muscular men in the first row. This is mainly because of the strength and control required for a strong, hot or fast–paced yoga class. The moves in yoga aren’t specifically designed for developing large muscle mass BUT the practice is essential to their maintenance. Efficient circulation, definition and flexibility are just a few of the benefits weightlifters can expect from practicing yoga. The extremely rewarding and challenging practice should be a part of everyone’s workout regime.
Making your fitness routine interesting is one of the easiest ways to make sure you stick to it. The variation that GuavaPass allows you to have in your fitness will not only make sure of this, but it will also see the continued and development of muscle. If you keep your diet in check, GuavaPass will sort out you with the rest. Look out for some of the other #GuavaGains classes at GuavaPass.com
