EXERCISE CREATION: How to Prevent Injuries, Build Muscle
and Burn Fat with Combination Exercises

The only place to learn the 7 Principles for creating your own Combination Exercises.

An athlete or client you work with needs an new exercise in the program to stimulate new progress and keep engaged. 

If there is an exercise already in your tool box that will do the job, that is the most logical choice. 

However, if you need to expand your tool box, where do you go? Other trainers, social media, books or courses? 

Knowing the principles of exercise creation adds the most empowering options, building on what you already know to create new and unique combination exercises yourself. 

There is tremendous power in showing a new combination exercise to a client and explaining how you created that exercise for them.

What you will learn: 

  • 3 Factors of muscle building: Mechanical tension, metabolic stress, functional differentiation/regional muscle activation. 

  • Why combination exercises is an exceptional strategy to optimize the 4 factors of muscle building 

  • How to apply 7 Principles to create combination exercises with any equipment and for any muscle group.


A faboulous way to learn new variations of common exercises with our without gym equipment.

Maximal Results Without the Injuries

What you will learn: 

  • Why the athlete or client should not do HIIT all the time even though HIIT is the “best way” to train (and how to cycle HIIT in and out of the program).  

  • How to help your athletes or fitness clients prevent overuse injuries from high intensity interval training by an ideal Periodization of exercises, volume and intensity. 

  • How to help your athletes or fitness clients optimize body composition and cardio respiratory training with a combination or auto regulated cluster style intervals and a metronome to ensure maximal movement speed.
