At Fit Fx, the goal isn’t always to lose weight. For some, it’s to regain their strength or improve their performance. Using a total body workout system provides you with a variety of advantages. Rotating your workouts will not only keep things interesting, but it also allows your body to rest and gives ample time for recovery.
Maximize the Efficiency of Your Workout
Even with rotating muscle groups, your entire body is continually receiving benefits throughout the week. It maximizes the efficiency of your workout while at the same time reducing the time you spend in the gym.
Improved Muscle Recovery
When you rotate workout sessions for muscle groups, you give the muscles time to recover between sessions. By exercising two groups each session, the entire body gets a full workout and the risk of injury is reduced.
Decreased Neuromuscular Fatigue
Performing a total body workout in one session can lead to neuromuscular fatigue. When your muscles and the central nervous system gets tired, it weakens and increases your risk of injury.

A total body workout program that spans several days, allows for more variety and an increase in motivation. You will always look forward to your next session and look for new ways to keep your total body workout interesting.
