  • STAGGERED SETS FOR CONSISTENT RESULTS!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    For those of you who don't know what STAGGERED SETS are (and I['m assuming a lot of people, even in the fitness industry, don't know), it's a method of bringing up a lagging muscle group WITHOUT making any drastic changes to your workout. Here's how it works! Suppose you've got bad calves and there's a good chance you do since it's a pretty big club! You can do them in between EVERY set or every other set you do! Therefore without even realizing it, you're doing 15 sets or so of calf raises in a workout and it doesn't even…

  • THIS IS HOW I START MY MORNING!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    This was an EARLY MORNING QIGONG WORKOUT I did recently. There is something very calming and therapeutic about the sound of the water. And when you're out there and you're experiencing that, you should just go with it. Start slow, build up speed gradually (not too much), and then slow down again. These movements are excellent for healing and building of the Chi (or Qi). Make sure there is no tension in the muscles. Everything must be relaxed in order for the energy to flow properly.

  • ROLLING THE BALL QIGONG! TRY IT!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    This movement is fantastic for training the entire body to ​​ROOT AND CONNECT! Start with a small ball, gradually make it larger, and then finally return it to a small size. Very similar to the Serving Teacup exercise, the goal here is to go with the natural flow of the movement and not fight it. For more info about In-Home or Online Personal Training, Click Below!

  • SERVING TEACUPS QIGONG! TRY THIS!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    The serving teacups movement is excellent for understanding the body connection. In earlier videos, I explained the importance of the RBCs of Qigong which are Rooting, Breathing, and Connecting. This will help put all those pieced together. The key here is simply don't fight it! Allow your body to move in a way to facilitate the movement of "holding your teacup" so it won't spill.

  • 22 DAY PUSHUP CHALLENGE REVEALED!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    I have just finished my 22 Day Pushup Challenge #22kill and I must say that the entire experience was quite rewarding. First of all, I helped to spread awareness of the problem of veteran suicide and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). Secondly, it was quite a challenge to think of all the different pushup variations! I know I didn't have to, but I decided to take this challenge one step further and do a different one each day. The only exception was the last day when my daughter Mia wanted to participate. It made sense at that time to come full circle and…

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    Injuries are a part of life. I know it sucks but there's nothing you can do which will completely guarantee you won't get injured.

I can tell you that the absolute worst thing is to do nothing and hope it will get better. Trust me, the pain will just hang around forever.

  • 100 REP BLAST WORKOUT!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    I've got a hell of a workout for you today! It's the 100 Rep Blast. So what is it? You'll pick 5 exercises making sure that you're hitting the entire body with them. Then you'll perform them in a circuit for 20 reps each. That will give you the 100 reps. Then you'll repeat the entire circuit up to 4 more times depending on your fitness level. Ideally you'll go to the different exercises right away with no rest in between. But obviously if that's too difficult, take a bit of rest. Just try to minimize it. The goal here…

  • SUPERSETS = SUPER RESULTS!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    Here I go again with another oldie but a goodie. Today it's supersets! I have no idea why, but you don't see many people doing this any more. Supersets are awesome for a number of reasons. Before we get to them, what are supersets. It's a grouping of 2 exercises done back to back typically with minimal or no rest between. It's often done with antagonistic muscles such as chest and back, biceps and triceps, or quadriceps and hamstrings. But it can be done for the same muscle as well. One benefit of this is that it saves time. Another…

  • OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    In fitness, this expression is definitely true. Walk into any gym and what are you likely to see? People training their chest, biceps, quads (front of your legs) and abs. Do you see a pattern here? These are all muscles on the front of your body. There is an entire rear part of your body that is extremely important not only for aesthetics (Check out that Steve Reeves photo from the 1940s) but for function. It is absolutely essential to give equal or perhaps more time to the rear muscles of the body since in many cases, they're bigger. Triceps…

  • 3 EXERCISES IS ALL YOU NEED! INTRODUCING THE TRIANGLE OF TERROR!

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    People are often conditioned and brainwashed into thinking that more is better. This simply isn't true. I've spoken before about the importance of quality over quantity. Hardly a new concept, but there are many who believe in quantity over quality, particularly in fitness. I've seen people in the past proud of the fact that they spend three hours in the gym. They'll typically start with some cardio like the treadmill, bike, or elliptical. Then they'll run through all the machines and maybe do a few dumbbell exercises. All the while, talking to everyone in prolonged conversations. No wonder it takes…

  • LIMITED ABILITY EXERCISES

    Author: CHRIS WONG FITNESS |

    Sometimes it can be frustrating for beginners to watch workout videos with all types of exercises that are beyond your abilities. It's all fine for someone to say to do 15 reps of chinups followed by 15 reps of dips and then a 100 Meter Dash. The only problem is what happens when you haven't worked out for years, decades, or never? Or how about if you have an injury? There are many reasons why you may not be able to do conventional exercises. That's the reason why it's important to understand the need for LIMITED ABILITY EXERCISES I know it…
