Pull Ups

The Veritcal Pull movement is very important in developing strong Lats, Lower Traps and Biceps.

When done correctly the Pull up is the king of all the vertical pulling motions and is also a really good performance tester for athletes when determining their upper body power to weight ratio. When done correctly and strictly it is an exercise that will develop a lot of muscle groups and MAKE YOU STRONGER! When done incorrectly it is an exercise that can increase your chance of injury by not utilising your abdominal group and decreasing Lat involvement.

Learn to land!

This is why learning to land is so important.

Jumping is avoidable but if you leave the ground you will always have to land!
Teaching someone to jump without first teaching someone to land is like getting on a plane with a pilot that hasn't learn how to land the plane. Dump! (Credit @defrancosgym for the rough phrasing)
Learning to eccentrically absorb force and decelerate will not only help improve overall performance but also decrease their chances of injury!

This is what its all about! Results!
Big shout out to Jen for SMASHING her personal best half marathon time!

Strength work in endurance athletes is one of the most overlooked ways of improving performance but if you think about it makes complete sense.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction~ Newton's 3rd law

So if you can apply more force to the ground you will develop a greater opposite reaction which means you require less effort to generate the same amount of force than you used to and you become more efficient!

So if your an endurance athlete looking to improve (who isn't) get yourself a proper, planned out strength program.

Apparently this is what all the cool kids are doing at the moment

Anyone suffering for lower back pain (LBP) should check out this post from @formidablestrength β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’
Importance of Exercise for Lower Back Pain (LBP)

LBP is very common in today's society. There are many causes to LBP including musculoskeletal and postural related changes which can be work or lifestyle related, chronic disease or damage from accidents etc.

We see many people at the gym who have a history of LBP.
Many of these people have been too scared to do any physical activity or movement and instead they just keep going for massages or treatment which is great to alleviate the initial pain and discomfort but does not help them in the long term.

Once we have taught people how to move and to actually activate key muscle groups of the posterior chain and using specific exercises within a few sessions pretty much all of these people notice massive changes in the reduction of their LBP.

Even Head Coach Simon has a history or LBP. "My LBP started with a Lumbar Stress Fracture caused from swimming and specifically butterfly in 2010. I took some time out the water and did plenty of Pilates to rehab it back.
I used to struggle with LBP for a couple more years until I started to add in more strength based exercises such as deadlifts.
Since I took my strength training seriously for my swimming my back has never been better.
I do notice little flair ups when I go on holiday or spend a lot of time sitting or standing but as long as I keep moving and strengthening my back I never have any major issues." If you have any questions about LBP and exercise comment below or have a friend with LBP tag them and we will get back to you.

One of my favourite hip hinge regressions/ warm up exercises for teaching clients to accelerate through the movement while maintaining upper back engagement under increasing tension. πŸ’ͺ

The big man is back with 1RM no straps, no belt, no shoes. Nothing fancy just strength. Normally would like him to hold the tech but today was a "go for it day" at the end of a massive block for @tomboring πŸ’ͺ
