💰RESOURCES vs. 💡RESOURCEFULNESS
Swipe left ⬅️ to see more
Just to make a point that having the RESOURCES is not quite enough to be proficient. I mean, an state-of-the-art commercial gym doesn't make a great trainer. On the other hand, becoming RESOURCEFUL is one of the ingredients that set outstanding personal trainer apart from others. That means creative effective ways to deliver quality training when the facility conditions are insufficient.
By all means, that's not my case though. I'm lucky enough to have the resources in the for o the most tailorable training facilities that I know and my clients think that I'm resourceful. So there! 😜
Know, about the barbell rolls videos:
1️⃣ first video, Helen performing barbell rows as an alternative for "wheel rolls". The curvy barbell allows us to reduce pressure for the wrists while engaging optimally the lats and the triceps, which facilitates the desired stability of the scapula (shoulder blades). .
2️⃣ second video shows Helen's lumbar area before surgery. No need to have a PhD in spine biomechanics to figure the excruciating pain that obligated pure structural intervention. As part of her recovery and strengthening phase, Helen is achieving muscular balance (via functional training) and reaching sustainable results and healthier lifestyle (including tennis 🎾) .
3️⃣ the last video, show is an extreme progression where I demonstrate the same movement and tools but adding external resistance on my thoracic area. If interested, i can post later on a tutorial teaching difFerent progressions. .
Finally, Btw, I noticed in the past some people put the weight on the hip which is... ahem, inadequate as the leverage or moment arm is far too short to challenge gravity or the genuine full weight of the plates.
