Full Body - Complex Exercises

Full body complex exercises have the
advantage of allowing one to economize
their workouts (more done in less time) by
working several muscles at a time. Also
most life task require this type of muscle
synergy. Reciprocal Energy programs
integrate both isolated and full body

Targeted Muscle Isolation

Isolated exercises offer the advantage of
being able to focus on a specific muscular
concern without efforts being impeded by
metabolic exhaustion or fatigue by the other
muscles involved.  Also muscle isolation
exercises allow one exercise more
frequently without over training by focusing
on different muscles on alternating days.
Reciprocal Energy programs included both
full body muscle body and targeted muscle
isolation training.
