Tip Tuesday:
A common coaching cue used in movements like swings, deadlifts and squats is to sit or stay back on the heels. Although this isn't entirely incorrect it is very much incomplete. The foot should act as a tripod. Often when a person is told to sit back on or push through the heels, one point of contact in the tripod is greatly reduced. Namely the point at the base of the big toe. According to @drrichardulm "the way in which an athlete loads their feet profoundly affects both the strategy with which they stabilize their spine and the position of the knee, hip and pelvis."

Simply put, if you don't have equal weight distribution during your lifts through the 3 points that form the tripod your spinal erectors may be working overtime, or the knee, hip and pelvis may be in a less than optimal position. "Less than optimal" is the key phrase. You may be able to move big weights and get super fit without focusing on the correct foot position but risk not being in the best or optimal position.

So, next time you swing, squat, or deadlift think about the tripod and maintain that even weight distribution throughout the entire set.

That's what I'm talking about @acropolisstreetfood, delivering the best souvlaki you can get in the North. Made by Greeks, so you know it's good. I'm so happy right now. #diet #cheatday #gains #gymwisdom #thegym

Ladies, if I were to give any advice when it comes to weightlifting, I'd say invest in a good pair of gloves. I never really understood it before until I recently discovered that my hands are as rough as a burly man who loves to chuck wood shirtless and sweaty in a covered forest with a giant axe with no rubber grips, nipples standing in the pouring rain... So yeah, get a pair of good gloves if you still wanna have dainty hands while you still can. #gymwisdom #gloves #whfitstar

Hit leg day today 💪🏻 in the video I hit 315lbs sumo deadlift for 8 reps which isn't that impressive, but that was after I PRed on squat with 4 reps at 315lbs. Would have had @tomeimario record but I didn't know if I could get the weight up so I wanted a spotter 😂 I'll definitely make sure I'll get a video next leg day 🏋🏻🍑

In the wise words of mr. Plummer," fitness isn't about getting in shape in 21 days and then you are done for summer...But the secret of fitness is that getting in shape is really about how you will live in the future. The workouts you do now will determine the quality of life you will have 10 years from today. "

TIP TUESDAY:
Struggling with landmine presses?
Try adding a band. The accumulated resistance over time increases the difficulty as you move through the range of motion during the press. This can help break through plateaus in training by providing a method of pressing that decreases the rate of change at specific weights. -#bettereveryday -

Leg day today. Exercise of the day: seated calf raises. Start with 40lbs on each side and complete 10 reps. After the 10 reps, drop a plate from each side and complete 10 more reps. Do this until you only have one plate on each side. Your calves should be screaming after this🏋🏻

This picture is so cliche when it comes to fitness motivation, buts it so true. The gym is such a great way to relieve stress. It won't make your problems disappear, but it can at least give you an outlet or a distraction. That's one of the majors reasons I got into lifting in the first place.
