Benefits of Structured Workouts

Read below what Valentina Lequeux has to say about structured workouts:

  1. If you want to have the best physique plus mindset, then you’re going to need to train in a system that will help you develop all components of your body, and structured workouts are the foundation of this. Her platform consists of the four pillars of FORM: fitness, nutrition, focus, and execution. Results show that clients who dedicate themselves to excellence in all four pillars, in synergy, achieve the best results.

  2. Structured workouts provide you with purpose and direction. Knowing what your workout is designed to develop will not only give you the clarity you need for extra motivation but will keep you checked into the workout at all times, with the end goal of developing a specific YOU in mind.

Your confidence in your process is one of the most important components when it comes to creating your ultimate self. Training in a structured workout system will give you the process that will build confidence in your abilities.

  1. Ultimately, consistent, purpose driven workouts will give you the confidence you need to achieve the performance that you’re after.

The method behind her structured workouts starts with giant sets: 4x15 - increasing weight on each set with a one minute rest in between sets.

Giant Set:

  • DB Hip Thrust x10 reps + 10 Pulses

  • DB Bulgarian Split Squat with ¼ of rep x8

  • Sumo Deadlift to Squat x10

  • Rest 60 seconds between each set

Don’t over complicate your workout split, simple and effective workouts will deliver real results. Add this giant set into your next workout.

Keep in mind when starting out to:

  1. Warm up

  2. Practice good technique

  3. Have proper form

  4. Contract muscles

  5. Focus on your breathing

  6. Eat balanced meals
