A great way to augment exercise is to use Manual Resistance immediately after exiting a training device. This approach to strengthening can further target the muscles involved in the movement. The rules of Manual Resistance are provided in the previous ‘Rogers Blog’.

Example: The Pendulum Squat Pro followed by Manual Outer Thigh.

Begin this routine by doing a set on the Pendulum Squat Pro. The weight you select can be part of your normal fitness routine. If you are doing multiple sets follow the final set of that movement with a manual exercise that further targets the previously trained area.
