Single arm row with an isometric hold. The ISO-hold will reinforce posture and core control to keep a neutral spine. #fitnessmotivation #workoutmotivation #workouttime #row #dumbellworkout #dumbbellrows #strengthandconditioning

▪️UNDERSTAND THE WHY▪️
----------
Slight adjustments can make dramatic changes to the application of exercises. Here we can see a Lateral Mini Band Walk, although there are many applications for bands to be used around the ankle, you must think about the application of the exercise in context of the outcome you want.
----------
The over recruitment of the TFL during this movement is very common, if the glute med. is what you are chasing, I find it much better to cue and apply when the band is above the knees. This allows the athlete to use the band as a point of reference for external rotation. .

・・・
The Levator Scapula (LS) is a neck muscle that is undervalued in its role in neck stability. Many people complain about getting "knots" in the neck. The LS elevates and slightly retracts the scapula, contributing to downward scap rotation. --------------- Interestingly, when abdominal pressure is lost, or lack of IAP during heavy lifts, LS kicks in to assist for lateral spinal flexion. Many individuals have shoulder hiking (via traps and LS) & a huge compensation for lack of abdominal stability in same side lateral flexion, particularly with the QL. Those with hiked shoulders may trade Lat power with LS facilitation. Since the lats internally rotates the humerus with LS recruitment, the lat may be inhibited. . ( i.e. pull-ups or lat pulldowns). ------------------------- LS is linked to cervical instability, due to improper extension patterns in the cervical area ( often seen in heavy squats and deads). Therefore, it locks cervical spine to try to prevent its movement, often creating trigger points. Trigger points in this area can also be developed by working at the computer with your head turned ( seen everyday), or or carrying backpacks on one dominant side or the other. --------------- ------------------- People with LS tightness often try to mobilize it. However, this causes LS to reflexively tighten more, creating more of perceived need to stretch. Just because something is tight, it doesn’t mean you should stretch it ( sometimes you can worsen the condition ) Often times, things will be tight in attempt to create stability. That's what your nervous system does. -------------- Practical Application: If your pull-ups, lat pulldowns and/or abdominal stability drills are lacking in power, your posterior neck is likely highly involved. Find out why LS is hypertonic, release LS, activate what is inhibited. Create better stability, core and lat engagement and feel good. #anatomy #muscles #movement #gains #performance #athlete #sport #health #science #strength #lift #results #instagood #picoftheday #flex #life #fitfam #coach #education #squats #back #training #gym #workout #bodybuildi

BFR & Muscle Injuries❗️
Hamstring pulls or strains are one of the most common injuries amongst athletes. They have a reputation for lingering and reoccurring throughout the season.
🏀🏀🏀
When a muscle is injured Myostatin and TGF beta act together to fill the tear with fibrotic tissue. Unfortunately fibrotic tissue is not as elastic as muscle and tends to break or rip instead of stretch.
⚾️⚾️⚾️
BFR has been proven to create muscle hypertrophy through protein synthesis without muscle breakdown, which makes it a great way to load injured muscle tissue.
🏈🏈🏈
Low load BFR exercise also creates lactate build-up which initiates Growth Hormone release and subsequent collagen synthesis for tissue healing.
⚽️⚽️⚽️
BFR has been found to down regulate Myostatin, this means that if we use BFR with our muscle injuries we may have a better chance of obtaining true non-fibrotic healing of the muscle tissue.
