This is a new training and exercise system that uses cooling, compression and interval training to maximize the users efforts. This is a low impact and relatively low intensity way for people to get the same great benefits of a high intensity workout.

The system works by compressing and cooling the body at the same time. When compressing the muscle the Vasper System traps the lactic acid in the muscle causing an instant muscle burn much more quickly than traditional training and exercise. This starts an anabolic hormonal response in the body to produce growth hormones, testosterone, DHEA and endorphin’s. The user gets these positive results without the negative effects of the wear and tear that a high intensity workout puts the body through which allows the user to rest and recovery.

We have an interview with one of the reps for the company Chloe. 

Here are a few more tips on getting the most out of your training.

Plan what you’re going to do – You don’t have to overdo this but having a general idea of what you want to achieve will be super helpful. Right now were trying to be more mobile and work on corrective movements so I think it would be helpful if we walked you through a few different programs and how you can get the most benefits.  

Time is your friend - First off no matter what you’re doing you’re going to get better over time. With this in mind remember you don’t need to always be switching up your workouts, do your program for a few weeks to make sure you get the most out of it. In a lot of programs you’ll have the same 3-5 workouts that you do for about 4-8 weeks depending on the specific goal.

Let’s look at a bodybuilder’s workout plan. A typical plan would be 5 days a week and each day will be a different body part of specific movement, below is a schedule we’ve put together as an example:

Monday  (Chest Day) – Bench Press, Skull Crushers, Push-ups, Tricep Press.

Tuesday (Back Day) – Pull-ups, Bent Over row, Seated Row, Lat Pull down.

Wednesday (Leg Day) – Back Squat, Alternating Lunge, Leg Press, Leg Extension.

Thursday (Rest Day) – Rest days are typically no lifting but possibly some light cardio such as walking.

Friday (Shoulder Day) – Military Press, Lateral Raises, Front Raises, Bent Over Fly’s,

Saturday (Bi’s, Tri’s and Accessories) – Bicep Curls, Tricep Kickbacks, Hammer Curls, Shoulder Shrugs.

Sunday (Rest) Rest and recovery.

Don’t waste your time – Unless you use the gym as your social time, and some people really enjoy hanging out at the gym, get in and get out! Exercising doesn’t have to take a long time, you can get a really great workout in 10 minutes. If you tighten up your rest breaks and don’t get distracted by your phone or other people in the gym you’ll be able to knock out multiple sets and reps quickly. 

Maximize your efforts - This is tied in with not wasting your time, when performing an exercise/movement really focus on what you’re trying to achieve with the movement. If you’re lifting weights to target a specific muscle for muscle growth really focus on feeling the burn in that muscle and controlling the movement. If you’re doing yoga or a corrective exercise really focus on stretching the targeted muscle. The mind and body should always be working together to achieve whatever goal you’re aiming for, to sum it up don’t just go in the gym and flop your body around. Focus on why you’re there and get it done.

Movement of the Week “Bug-UP” this is a move I actually made up and it’s a combination of a “v-up” and a “Dead Bug.” This is an ab exercise and it’s very challenging, the way you have to control the move is going to maximize your results and minimize your efforts. Here’s how you do the move; first lay on the floor on your back, extend your legs and lift your arms above your head. Now tilt your hips posteriorly, so that your back is flat on the ground, now lift your arms and legs off the ground a few inches, hold for a second and lower your arms and legs back down to the ground without letting your lower back come off of the floor. During this move you will have to focus very hard on keeping your back flat on the ground and it should really challenge you to use your abdominal muscles. Try a few reps and rest then try a few sets. It’s really simple and it will help develop those abs and it will also help with anyone who suffers from a posterior tilt in the hips.
