Let's focus on my new 8 rep PB and put aside the fact that a 45min session this morning took me twice as long to finish 😴. I think it's safe to say this week's sessions have caught up on me. #fridayfatigue

Half-Kneeling setup: Here @jullllles_ demonstrates a half-kneeling cable chop. Reposted from @cresseysportsperformance. -
On the left, you'll notice the shin on the inside leg and the femur on the outside leg are angled away from the cable stack instead of being vertically aligned.
-
On the right, you'll notice the 90 degree angles between inside shin/outside femur and the floor.
-
90 degree angles allow the pelvis to stay underneath the ribcage, which allows for better airflow and abdominal musculature recruitment. Additionally, this setup takes valgus stress off the inside knee.

THE ULTIMATE DEADLIFT CHECKLIST!!
-
What’s up Achievers?! @jasonlpak here and today we have a 6-part checklist for a perfect set of conventional deadlifts!
-
1️⃣FEET HIP WIDTH APART AND BARBELL OVER MID-FOOT: In order to establish a strong base of support, start with your feet under your hips with toes forward or slightly flared out. Step up to the bar so that it’s close to your shins and over your mid-foot.
-
2️⃣HINGE YOUR HIPS BACK: Initiate the deadlift by sitting back with your hips. This will help you to load your posterior chain (glutes and hamstrings) and get into a strong starting position.
-
3️⃣GRAB THE BAR JUST OUTSIDE YOUR SHINS: The wider your hands, the greater the demand on your mid and upper back. Keeping your hands in closer will help make the pull feel easier than if they were out too wide.
-
4️⃣ALIGN YOUR ARMPITS DIRECTLY OVER THE BAR: This will set you up for a more vertical and direct bar path, which makes the deadlift much more efficient.
-
5️⃣PUSH INTO THE FLOOR AND STAND TALL: Instead of thinking about “lifting” the bar off the floor, think about “pushing” your feet into the ground. The harder you push down into the floor, the stronger your deadlift will be. Stand tall at the top and look straight ahead to practice good alignment.
-
6️⃣INITIATE THE DESCENT WITH ANOTHER HIP HINGE: Once you’ve gotten to the top of the deadlift, lower it back down by hinging your hips back, loading your posterior chain again, and getting right back into your original starting position.
-
We hope this checklist helps you out the next time you’re going through a set of deadlifts! Share with a friend who would appreciate it. And until next time, peace, love, and muscles ✌️💙💪

➡️Olympic Lifting Sequencing for Power⬅️
_______
Lifting sets don’t necessarily need to be the same pattern every rep.
-
The sequencing of patterns can help the lifter/athlete focus on specific components of a lifting sequence or ROM that needs attention (weak, slow, technique issues, etc.) in order to improve Motor Control, timing and grooving the pattern.
-
Here is a sequence that emphasizes:
🔸Transition
🔸Power Position
🔸Triple (or quadruple) extension
-
Sequence:
Rep 1️⃣ SLDL - Paused Transition - Hang Clean Pull
Rep 2️⃣ SLDL - Paused Transition - Hang High Pull
Rep 3️⃣ SLDL - Paused Transition - Hang Clean (high catch)
-
This can be repeated for 2-3 complete cycles
-
Sets: 3-6
Pattern: 2-3 x 1e pattern
Tempo: Controlled, Pause at Power Position, Controlled Explosive Triple Extension (shown)
-
Holler with questions!

Looking for a natural pre-workout? Eat pomegranate seeds or drink its juice! Studies have shown that pomegranate has very positive effects on athletic performance because it increases blood flow.
It also has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties! •••

▶️Rotational Power Development◀️
_______
✅ Golf
✅ Tennis
✅ Baseball
✅ Softball
✅ Lacrosse
✅ Volleyball
-
So many sports need rotational power development.  This list above is by no means exhaustive, as even in sports that don’t “throw” or “hit,” many involve cutting and change of direction movements that call into play the need for rotation acceleration and deceleration.
-
The Keiser Performance Trainer (pneumatic resistance) is a great option for developing accelerative as well as decelerative power in a controlled environment (prior to exposing the athlete to more open skilled, uncontrolled environments).
-
Here is a progression list of some patterns I like to use to move from Upper Extremity and Thoracic rotation (limited degrees of freedom) to 1/2 Kneeling variations that allow more degrees of freedom and get into some different hip planes.
-
1️⃣ Kneeling Lift Diagonal Power
2️⃣ Kneeling Short to Tall Lift Diagonal Power
3️⃣ 1/2 Kneeling Lift Diagonal Power Inside Down
4️⃣ 1/2 Kneeling Lift Diagonal Power Outside Down
5️⃣ 1/2 Kneeling Lift Diagonal Power Outside Down Abduction
-
Sets: 2-5
Reps: 6-10e
Tempo: 10X1 (shown)
-
Give me a holler with any questions!

High intensity training dominants the fitness industry. & absolutely nothing wrong with that because it does work. But how often do you move consistently in various planes & movements patterns with different movements at a slower intensity? How often are you moving for quality rather than quantity? How often are you giving your body a chance to “breathe” but still being in the gym?

Specific to this post, how often are you moving laterally? How often are you carrying? How often are you moving on a single leg?

Here is a great way to accomplish all of these questions in less than 45 minutes 1x per week & feel a lot better during your the entire week of training.

35 minutes for quality of:
2 minute assault bike nasal breathing only
20 lateral banded step overs
8 lateral box step ups R/L
60m KB farmers carry

& great movements for those that are experiencing back pain too!

Asymmetrical weight shift in the squat? No problem! Use of Reactive Neuromuscular Training (RNT) is a great way to correct it. Here @nataliamyerss was shifting heavily to left leg at the bottom of the squat so we put a band around her hips and pulled her into the compensation causing the body to oppose that force and end up in a more even weight distribution!

[EVERYONE HAS DYSFUNCTIONS]
.
Everyone has dysfunctions. It's always easy to pinpoint a tissues and blame them for the result of our pain but there are many other factors that contribute to that experience. It is normal to have 'dysfunctions' and 'asymmetries'? Yes. That is a part of a life. There are the uneven surfaces we walk on, the sports we play that demand more from one side of our body, the things we carry in our hands aren't going to the same exact amount of weight, etc.
.
The problem with the word dysfunction is that it is constantly being tossed around for single degree we are missing that deviates us from "normal" but what is normal? The norm is going to differ from each individual because our bodies are different. I had a post a few months ago with @themvmtpts and we talked about how our hip structures are different from left to right. There are tons of studies that show people have different bone structures so whatever normal is will be inherently different for everyone. @rehabscience also has a great write up about the commonality of leg length discrepancy and how it's more common to have one then not.
.
There are people with great posture and terrible pain, the same goes for people with "abnormal" posture and no pain. There are people that are born with neurological impairments that walk with a very dysfunctional gait that present with no pain. There are people that have to amputate their legs but still have pain in the their legs(this phenomenon is called phantom limb).
.
What I am trying to get at is that our body does a great job at adapting. I mean look around, there are so many people around you with 'dysfunctions' that probably present with no discomfort. The argument usually is that "it's only a matter of time" but you know what time helps the body do? It helps the body adapt.
.
Now before you think it doesn't matter at all about whether we look at the biomechanics that are caused from these 'dysfunctions', it does matter. The problem is that it only tells one part of the story and that's where the load is being placed. It doesn't take all the other factors into consideration.

💥Couch Stretch PAILs/RAILs💥
.
Hip extension and knee flexion are two movements that are typically limited actively for individuals that sit at a desk for the majority of their day. Couch stretch is one of the best ways to counter this from a flexibility and mobility stand point.
.
In this position, I’m focusing on trying to drive my hip forward while keeping my spine long. I’m also using the dumbbell rack to drive my lead leg forward and a support to take balance out of the equation.
.
From here, my PAILs contraction is pushing my foot into the Bulgarian split squat stand. My RAILs contraction is trying to lift-the foot off the pad while maintaining hip extension. Warning: this will lead to a nasty hamstring cramp if you’ve never performed it before.
.
Give it a try and let me know what you think! 😎💪🏼 #cspfamily #controlyourself

Perfect the basics- nothing fancy here || Learning how to load properly/land is the most common skipped step I see in programs. Just as we use a progressive overload in strength the same process should be used in movement progressions ———————————————————————

What trainers fail to realize is the art of progressing. Many people are eager to skip steps, which makes the trainer challenge them in ways they may not be ready for. If you want to see a beautiful view you need to first climb the mountain that gets you there. Trust the system, your view might be closer than you think. .

BIG toe motion. Hallux rigidus - the complete fusion of the first metatarsal phalangeal joint, is rare. But Hallux Limitus is becoming more and more prevalent with the effects that footwear have on our feet.
👣
Hallux Limitus is a degenerative condition in which the extension of the big toe becomes more and more limited. What does this mean? 👟Altered gait mechanics
👟Pain with running
👟Often associated with decreased ankle dorsiflexion
👟Continued loss of big toe dorsiflexion.
👣
Hallux limitus is different from a bunion in that the bony callus (osteoarthritis) that grows on the joint is on the dorsum (top) of the toe, not the side. 👣
Initial treatment for Hallux limitus includes mobilization of the big toe joint maually, soft tissue therapy of the surrounding musculature. However long term function of this toe should also include active mobilizations by the patient DAILY, such as controlled articular rotations (#CARs) of the big toe joint and PAILs and RAILs of the big toe joint, other toes and ankle as per #functionalrangeconditioning protocols, to ensure that the newly found range of motion is accessible to the foot and ankle. Additional examination of the hip should be included in any good exam.
👣
👣
As always this information is intended for educational purposes only, please find a 👣or #FRCms practitioner near you and have your personal situation evaluated by a professional. Thoughs, feelings, emotions, leave them👇🏻

The benefits of the deadlift cover a broad spectrum ranging from performance enhancement to improving quality of daily life.
.
#
.
That said, not everyone needs to deadlift with a barbell from the floor. I love all kinds of deadlifts - kettlebell, landmine, offset, trap bar, sumo, conventional, etc.
.
#
.
However, even with all of these variations and progressions, some people are immediately turned off (usually out of fear) by the word deadlift. That’s fine and all BUT unless they never plan on picking something up off the floor again, they need to learn to perform and strengthen the hinge pattern. So how do we do this?
.
#
.
Sidenote: these (or regressions of these) work great for someone working around some injuries as well.
.
#
.
Video 1: Banded Shoulders Elevated Hip Thrusts w/ @mbslingshot hip circle followed by an isometric hold at the top.

#
.
Video 2: Isometric Bilateral Hinge (what I call them for people afraid of the “D” word)

So excited that physical therapist @jessicabentopt will be teaching at this year’s @nscaofficial Nevada state clinic at the awesome @ufcpi in November. She is going to be teaching how we use #DVRT principles to change how we help problematic shoulders. It isn’t about #Sandbags but the lessons of #functionaltraining we can teach like these 3 ideas!
....
1️⃣Our #core serves as the foundation for the shoulders. That does mean just #abs but all 35 muscles that starch to our core. Teaching how we engage these muscles gives a stable platform for our shoulders.
...
2️⃣Grip and feet are key because that is both how we turn on our core and engage with the outside to make our body stronger and more stable.
...
3️⃣True strength isn’t just the force we can produce but what we can resist as well. Learning how to move while resisting force and applying the prior 2 #functionalfitness concepts is what makes us real world strong and mobile!
