I am often asked what it is like to photo shoot a major bodybuilding competition up close and center in the press pit. With the 2011 Arnold Classic only a few days away I thought I would show you. It looks like this!

Does the wellness industry have stability? Is it a viable job option for you or others? If you want to become a personal trainer or nutritionist, and you are just starting out in your career, is it wise to jump in now or wait? A thorough analysis of the situation is pertinent before such action steps can be made.
One must first define their location and demographic. For example, in Hershey Pennsylvania, there are many viable candidates that could enrich their lives through nutrition coaching, but they do not know where to turn. The demographic is willing and able. In a third world country, however, the concern is not on health and fitness, but on basic survival. It would not be wise to market there.
If you have an interest in the wellness sectors of fitness and nutrition and are considering a career in one or both of these sectors and wants to get in early in order to gain the greatest amount of economic and financial leverage, you may want to take pause and analyze the situation first.
In this video, we will be showing you how to effectively utilize the Cybex Leg Press which is a great exercise for building overall lower body strength.
First, adjust the back pad to a comfortable angle.
Next, adjust the seat to the desired start position of about 90 degrees at the knees.
Adjust the weights to a setting you will feel comfortable lifting but will get you maximum results.
Now, position your feet on the footplate shoulder width apart and toes slightly pointed outward.
Finally, use your legs, hips and glutes to press into the footplate until your legs are fully extended and then return back to the starting position.
This machine is working your quadriceps, gluteus maximus, and your hamstrings. Try to exhale as you press forward with your legs. Keep your breath flowing, and work to keep your back position stable during the exercise, avoid shifting or allowing your back to arch during the movement.
