Another one from earliers session, keeping it light at 90kg just working at hitting a full range of motion as it's been a while since I did and last time I had them in my programme they really helped me increase my squat.
There are no words to express my gratitude for this brainy and gifted group of women. Their supreme work ethic and positive attitudes got them through the intense but rewarding Level 1 Yoga Tune Up® Teacher Training @b_movedyoga I'm so blessed to have spent a whole week learning with each of you. Thank you for putting in your all. You are rockstars!
@joydorsey I cannot express enough gratitude for opening your doors for this training and for all your support this week. It was an absolute pleasure and I can't wait to come back for more! And @lelolaurel - from the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Kneeling row with thoracic rotation. This is a great exercise to work on your active thoracic rotation. I like to use this exercise after a passive thoracic stretch or mobility drill to really lock in and control that ROM. The arm you are rowing with should also be the knee this is up. This will help to lock out that lumbar spine so most of the movement is coming from the thoracic region. If you want to increase the focus on the thoracic region you can posteriorly tilt your pelvis and squeeze your glutes. Give this exercise a try for 2 sets of 10 on each side and make it slow and controlled.
🌊9 weeks ago was under the knife for a shattered femoral neck & greater trochanter. The first 6 weeks of progress from none-weight baring to walking with a cane were "superman" quick. We saw progress every week with basic movement strength.
Now we're into the frustrating long "slow" haul. Waiting for the bone to be completely healed and the muscles that were torn to grow and strengthen before full weight baring is comfortable. Training in the pool is an excellent tool, and you don't need a fancy, private facility to do it! Here we're able to get him full weight baring with closed chain exercises (squats, walking lunges, directional walking, sumo squats and bound jumps), water assisted/resisted movement (range of motion) and in general build confidence and tackle things gravity won't let us do! 🌊
1 week into Operation #StrongLikeStrongCamps , feeling...strong. Definitely learning a thing or two about creating tension, finding some new sensations and ranges, and having a great time. You can't sign up because @strongcamps is too popular, but you can get on his waitlist. Or just say hey, you'll probably have a good chat. .
At @move_at_gymnasia, we call this developing a Range of Strength. One without the other isn't great, but both in harmony? Yum. Come and get some, Waltham and Newton. It's a challenging process, but damn it's beautiful.
Oh and yes, coaches hire coaches. I highly recommend finding yourself a coach who is committed to learning.
Als je baas wilt worden over een beweging dan moet je zorgen dat de uitgangspositie zo sterk mogelijk is. Zo dat je focus simpelweg ingezet kan worden om de beweging in te slijpen. Je kunt allerlei tools inzetten zoals elastieken, chains en progressieve overload maar je eerste prioriteit is techniekbeheersing. Baas zijn over de beweging. Handhaving van de techniek tijdens de set is een vereiste. We maken het vaak te snel ingewikkeld. Werk van simpel naar complex als dat past bij je doel. Er is geen 1 squat variant superieur. Het moet passen bij jou mogelijkheden en de meest effectieve manier zijn om je doel te bereiken. Leer simpel te denken en te doen. #knowledgeispower#squats#strengthandconditioning#commonsense#overload#rangeofmotion#speedcode
As an industry we have basic principles the we must follow.
Mobilize (Range of motion)
Stabilize (pattern correction)
Reload (strength work)
Armbars are a great example of static control of the glenohumeral joint which is vital for a strong and safe overhead press
Loading a compensatory pattern reinforces poor movement and in turn leads to pain and increased risk of injury
How good is your hip flexion?!?!? I bet they are not as good as Nikolas Edin of Sweden in the #curling at the #winterolympics . Just shows that what ever your sport/choice of game, movement and mobility is key. Both legs have a fantastic #rangeofmotion . #movementmatters
I've been dissecting my workouts very carefully this week to start preparing for my next cycle. Today was #backday , so I did all of the irregular lifts I've been using and left out my regulars. I did this as an effort to identify which ones felt like they needed work and which ones felt really good. I've got a ton of video from it so I may throw some up later. I was also listening to @barbellshruggedpodcast during the #workout . Love that show! It's right up there in my top 3 😉 check em out.
Still #lifting pretty light on a lot of stuff, which is somewhat tedious, but it has massively improved #form , #mobility , and #rangeofmotion . Also doing a lot of focus on #situationalawareness and stuff; breathing, effects of heat, cold, clothing, footwear, etc. I think having a good sense of awareness to yourself and your environment plays a huge role in the effectiveness of your routine.
