AHH WHY ME?! 😩 #tricepstendonitis 👎🏼 What is triceps tendonitis? Its an #inflammation of the muscle tendon which usually occurs on the triceps tendon attachment, the olecranon. This is often accompanied by #microtraumas -often the result of an #overload . •
The triceps consisting out of 3 heads whose origins lies deep in the shoulder and upper arm, inserting into he olecranon of the ulna. The functions in the shoulder/arm region are retroflexion and adduction of the arm. The function in the elbow is extension.
Clinically patients may complain of #pain around the elbow or niggling ache when moving the arm through extension (me!!)This may refer down towards the wrist and hand. Often pulling movements may irritate this by stressing the triceps tendon at its insertion - I couldn’t even open doors without wincing!
Initially, it’s important to #rest the tendon, avoiding aggravating activities. Ice and elevation may also help if swollen and inflamed. Once able to move through a #painfree range then #isometric and #concentric#exercises will help to optimally load the tendon again before working on #eccentric and #functional exercises to help prevent #reinjury •
I was fortunate enough to be helped out by a colleague of mine who was able to apply #dryneedling to the muscle belly, musculo-tendonous junction and also to the tendon. Multiple twitches later and nearly suffering a tear-attack or two (due to the needle more than pain 😂) I am now able to use my arm normally again! 🎉 Now the pre-Hab begins with light, smooth controlled concentric and isometric exercises!!
Accessory work from last nights #legday . Accessory work will make or break an athletes performance and is often under looked. This is the time you work on sticking points, weaknesses, imbalances, etc. It’s also a prime opportunity to individualize an athletes program. Cookie cutter plans don’t produce results, daily changes sometimes occur in training due to factors out of a coaches/trainers control.
@mmital for the photo credit. How rude of me to forget. I got you. .
Can't take credit for this, saw it posted by a bro whose IG handle won't appear for some reason. I'll tag after. Dave I'm sorry. Lol. .
What: #Weighted cable pull ups .
Why: #Cable adds #resistance to both the #concentric and eccentric parts of the movement; #isometrically holding the top can also be included. .
How: Weight belt with loops, I prefer the attachments to be on the side. Feels more comfortable. Go slow. Control every aspect. .
Note: #forearms will definitely be taking a greater amount of load so be sure to set yourself up through depressing the lats and engaging your back prior to each Rep. .
Added about 20lbs total. 10 from each cable. Weight pulls you down with gravity challenging you to keep tension throughout. .

Word Of the Day: TEMPO🖌
Defination: "the rate or speed of motion or activity; pace" -the interweb 📚
TEMPO in relation to resistance training typically refers to the speed of each REP. You may see this represented on a training plan as something like "4020" or "40X0" ect.. (placed close to the rep and set scheme). 🎯
Each number represents the seconds it should take to complete the portion of that lift.
The X indicates "explosive" or as fast as possible.
The first number is for he eccentric portion (when the muscle is lengthening or the joint opening or going down on a squat)
The second number is the pause before the concentric contraction.
Third is the concentric portion of the lift. ( e.g. when you are on the way up in a squat)
Finally the pause at the top is represented by the final number.
I typically wouldn't add Specific Tempo reccomendations to a clients program unless in some kind of rehab scanerio or trying to capatilise off metabolic stress. 😈
Other than that a complete beginner may benefit from a learning perspective in going at a slower than the usual Tempo.
If you are already confidant in your technical capabilities in each exercise I would advise 90% of the time using forceful contractions.. controlled eccentrics with plenty of stretch under load ( where appropriate) x lots of volumes for both strength and size Gainzzzzz.🤗💪🏼 #tempo#wordoftheday#animationoftheday#typography#strengthtraining#4010#coaching#wordsareimportant#picoftheday#animation#eccentric#concentric
My new YouTube video (link in profile) Isometric Exercise - Increase Joint Strength....................end range isometric exercise can dramatically increase the strength and stability of your joints..... isometrics can reduce joint pain. #isometrics#isometric#jointpain
Woah, totally forgot about this fitness page! Just kiddding but hit some chest and tri yesterday with @nickgfitt and then finished off with some abs and hitting the bag for 10 min. Try to focus on your eccentric movements rather than your concentric movements where you can go heavier if you’re focusing on eccentric movements to force more muscle fibers to be used and greater force will be generated. On top of that, you will see an increase in strength but you really have to focus on the movement and give yourself a slow negative rep. #eccentric#concentric#TittyTuesday#leanin#leancuisine#CallMeBishopGainz#YaaTrickyaa#bodybuilding#slowmotion#motionintheocean#getfit
Working on the CONCENTRIC POWER 💥 with #5 ranked Australian fencer 🤺 @matt_fosta ✊️✔️
We complete this both loaded & un loaded conditions ✔️
Combine this “explosive” work with traditional strength training (80% 1 RM > squat & deadlifts) and we improve our athletes ability to JUMP high & RUN fast ✔️💯

E D U C A T E | TRAIN THE PRO 🤓
If you would have told me 3 years ago when I was taking on my very first client, that I'd be training the current WBFF WORLD PRO, I'd have told you you're lying. Yet here we are. 👙
I feel humbled and honoured that @aliciagowans_wbffpro has entrusted me to rehabilitate her niggling injuries back to world stage this year. 🏆👑
And trust me, her "rehab" isn't little baby activation exercises. She is sweating and working HARD for a bigger, better body this year! 💪
Double tap if you're low key fan girling like I am! 😍@allysangels_fitness #swiftmovementacademy
