Derrick Henry on healthy routines
As seen in Derrick’s videos there is a good amount of variety in his workout and very structured. The structure of his workout is one important principle that allows him to maintain his dominance in the NFL. Below is a workout format that you can use to take your physique to the next level.
Agility quickness drills
The steps above allow you to address the pains and the weaknesses first by strengthening under-active and overactive muscle. This format starts off with a warmup that can be seen as the pre-pump before the pump because it kickstarts blood flow. The core exercises are essential because without a strong midsection it becomes hard to perform most exercises with good technique. So for example, if you sit at work everyday you’ll be able to address low back issues or tight hips first and then continue on with your workout. Balancing exercises are essential because most times you’re on foot or using one hand at a time. Strengthening the ability to stay balanced will shoot your gains through the roof. Plyo exercises keep your hip and knees movement strong which are important for compound exercises like squats and deadlifts. Agility exercises are optional but since you’re looking to put on muscle then staying as agile as possible will help tremendously in the long run so you can be bigger and still move. Lastly there’s the resistance training which is the meat of the workout followed by the cool down. Taking your time at each step will not only help you build muscle quicker but also allow you to enhance your movement.
To take your physique and training to the next level use this simple workout format. There’s no use of continuing to workout in pain and making the problem worse which is slowing your gains down. Confusion with what goes where for your workout is longer relevant with a simple format.
