      Live,Instrument Specific Online Workouts!

      In Uncategorized by AngelaLeave a Comment

      You may not be performing on stage at the moment but practicing can still wear tear on your body. I’m here to help! In 1.5 hours I’ll will walk you through an instrument specific workout that will keep you strong, healthy and injury free throughout your career as a musician.

      What you’ll learn:

      • Proper form
      • Workout order
      • How to mobilize, stretch and activate
      • What specific exercises you need to do for each instrument to help you avoid injury, increase strength and endurance and correct muscle imbalances.

      Each workout is designed specifically for YOUR instrument and includes:

      • Mobility
      • Specific strength exercises
      • Basics of form and strength training technique
      • Progressions and Regressions
      • Options for if you have equipment, access to a gym or no equipment at all
      • a downloadable PDF of the workout
      • The recording of the workout so you can watch it at your leisure.
      • Live Q&A

      I will be hosting my Live Workout series most Tuesdays and Thursday at 10 AM CST with bonus “Essential Excercises” workouts on Sundays at 5:00 PM. If you can’t attend the session, not a problem! I will send you a recording following the workout to cover everything you need to know about the strength training you need!

      Essential Exercises Workouts:
      In these workouts we will go through my book and cover the basics of form and the bare bones exercises you need to be doing in any workout as a musician. These will be based off my book “The Musician’s Essential Exercises” – we will be going through the book, explaining and doing the exercises and also going through and doing the workouts in the back so you can feel competent going forward with any workout you do, knowing what is appropriate for you.

      These workout are separate from the instrument specific workouts.

      You do not need the book but it is helpful. These workouts are not included in the Buy 5 deal, but 1 workout IS included if you buy all as a package.

      FAQ

      Why 1.5 hours?

      This gives us the optimal amount of time without being rushed to be able to not just do a workout, but explain the how and why and lead you through it all.

      Will we be working out the entire time?
      Doing? Yes. Working out like you would normally do in a gym? No!

      Do I need any equipment?
      These are structured with little to no equipment, but I will definitely show you options if you do have equipment!  Foam roller, lacrosse ball, exercise bands, dumbbells are all things I may use.

      What if I can’t make the workout time?
      All the workouts will be recorded so you can watch and re-watch anytime you want.

      Will you see me?
      Only if you want me to! You have the option to show your screen or not, totally up to you. If I can see you, I have the opportunity to see you in real time, giving you feedback on how you’re performing the exercise and answering your questions.

      What happens after I make my payment?
      You’ll be sent an email with the Zoom registration details, Make sure you click on that to register for the class! When you’ve done that, you’ll get the Zoom class link.

      What if I have more questions?
      Great! Let’s set up a time to talk! Email me at angela@musicstrong.com.

      Self-Employed Musician

      EPISODE 26


      ep 12

      The Self-Employed Musician with

      Ashley Hagadorn

      (1:33:50)
      Join our conversation with Ashley Hagadorn. A Successful music studio business owner, violist, strongman competitor and recent mom.
      Corpsonore



      Successful music studio business owner, violist, strongman competitor and recent mom, Ashley Hagadorn joins us for a conversation you can lump under "things I didn't learn in music school but should have". We cover how to go from traveling teacher to owning your own studio, taxes, marketing/branding, logo design (remember this: people don't read!), contracts, getting paid and how to put more responsibility on your students/clients so you aren't doing EVERYTHING.

      Episode Reference:


      You can find Ashely on Facebook and IG at:

      Also covered - get a CPA!

      We also delve into how to she went from cardio bunny to Crossfit to finding her way into loving Strongman lifts and more importantly, how it has helped her as a musician!

      Takeaways:

      • Get a CPA (they aren't as expensive as you think)
      • Keep logo simple and marketing pretty- people look at pictures, they don't read
      • Lifting for strength and lifting for size are completely different - if you want to get strong you won't automatically look like a bodybuilder.

      Fitness Advertising Can Set You Up for Failure

      This short episode is about how programs and certain pieces of equipment can trick people into buying them (and then buying more stuff when that stuff doesn't work)
      Fitness Advertising



      In this short episode Jen gets it off her chest about how programs and certain pieces of equipment can trick people into buying them (and then buying more stuff when that stuff doesn't work) instead of helping people meet their goals. Advertising isn't inherently misleading, but we delve into how things have to be difficult to make a change....which will segue perfectly into our next episode with our first guest Rusty Holmes!

      Healthy Habits Part 3: Don't Workout to

      "Be Healthy"

      (59:03)
      This episode is a continuation of the conversation about the science and motivation behind exercise
      Healthy Habits Part 3



      In continuing our conversation about the science and motivation behind exercise (going off the book "No Sweat" by Michelle Segar) we delve into topics like:

      1. The Wrong Why's - your motivation (or lack) is tied to your meaning
      2. The Cycle of Failure (and how to get out of it)
      3. Making exercise a gift instead of a chore
      4. Autonomy and owning exercise the way that YOU want
      5. Becoming aware of how your body wants to move instead of how you think it "should"

      And many other aspects of motivation! There are several aspects of this episode we would really love your input on - drop a message in the comments when you hear them and let us know! We'd love to see a full message board of people sharing similar experiences (you're not alone!)

      How do you know if you're working out TOO much or too hard or a combination of those for too long? What about playing? What signs and symptoms should you be aware of to prevent burnout, injury or other underlying health problems you might not know about getting worse? If "I'm tired"s are becoming a daily norm, more than just not getting enough sleep, there might be other things you should look at.
