@lukahocevar picked up this bullshit ass Bamboo Barbell from Middle Earth so of course my curiosity got the best of me and had to take it for a test drive. Crazy stability work! Tag a friend you want to see try this exercise 😎


Alright, front loaded walking lunges - love this exercise for accessory work. Most people have trouble keeping anterior (front) core engaged when under heavy load, me included. This forces me into a good position as I have to drive my elbows up to keep the weight racked and supported. If wrist mobility is an issue for you, try with kettlebells or dumbbells to keep a neutral wrist.


Haven't done back squats in almost two years but daily mobility work allowed me to perform 2 sets 15-20 reps pain free 🙌🏽 and the pump was forreal. •

Here's a monster metabolic finisher for you and your training partner. • Put 3 minutes on the clock • Partner 1 starts with 10 Squat Thrusters as partner 2 performs a squat hold • Once you complete 10 thrusters, switch roles with your partner and repeat for 3 minutes

Enjoy. Your body, especially your quads, will thank you for it!

💪🏽 Inverted Towel Row 💪🏽 Super dope inverted row variation with a couple towels. Great for emphasizing grip work and forces you to create tension throughout the movement which in return, improves quality of the rep as well.
Shout out @casseytran and @smurjani for crushing this exercise today and making it look easy!

💥FitTip To Bulletproof Your Shoulders💥
.
4.5 million people in the United States visit their doctor due to shoulder pain each year - resulting in surgery. Many of them can't do things like play with their kids or reach the top shelf of their pantry without pain.
.
It's crazy to me that doctors tend to send people to physical therapy after surgery instead of before 🤔 - before I go any further I say that in some cases surgery is necessary but 4.5 million each year is a little excessive in my opinion.
.
The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body but often lacks stability. There are 17 muscles that attach to the scapula and doing dumbbell presses isn't providing the PREHAB that you need.
.
Here's an external rotation drill that you can do before you push/pull that will help improve your shoulder function and prevent injury. Here's how to do it:
.
👉🏽 Start with bands (light resistance) in the pits of your elbows making sure there is slight tension in the bands.
👉🏽 Push your elbows back maintaining the 90 degree angle and squeeze your shoulder blades together with a slight pause in end range.
👉🏽 Control back to starting position and repeat for desired rep count (8-12)
.
Rod performed 2 sets of 8 reps before getting into some DB Floor Presses

Got this row variation from @cody.boomboom - I don't know where the fuck he got it from but I'm a fan.
Implement this in your program especially if you have a hard time activating your lats.

Top 3 Struggles 99% of People Face When Chasing Their Transformation

Coach @cody.boomboom breaks it down for you:
1.) ACCOUNTABILITY.
Nobody is self made and the faster one can realize and then embrace this, the faster they will reach their goals.
To fast track your fitness and finally see results, seek accountability from a coach, a group, a workout partner, or all of the above. This is the missing link in so many peoples plans.
-
2.) NUTRITION.
We know this is a tough one, but the truth is... it's MUCH more simple than you're making it.
Eat Whole Foods for 80-90% of your diet, eat about your bodyweight in protein, make sure you have a caloric intake that matches your goals, track what you eat and just stay consistent.
-
3.) TRAINING.
Your body will not transform if you do not train it the right way, period.
When you're a beginner you can get away from just doing whatever in the gym, but after a short amount of time - that ends.
Smart training means having a program that is created and designed for your specific goals.
It also means having measurable progressions, switching things up when it's needed, staying pain/injury free, and staying motivated to do the work.

Master these 3 and you'll master your body, giving you the ability to completely transform it.

🔥Workout Of The Day🔥 •

👉🏽 D-Ball Figure 8 Slams -> great exercise for athletes who need to transfer force. I used it just to get the juices flowing before strength work. I did 4 sets of 4 reps. 👉🏽 Band Resisted RDL's -> Most people fail to engage their lats while performing this exercise so the bands force you to create more tension which will improve form. I did 6 sets of 6 reps. 👉🏽 DB Squeeze Press to Fly -> Every guy loves a chest pump. So much tension and blood flow to your pecs with this one. Squeeze DB's together as hard as you can on the press and slowly control the eccentric in Fly. 3 sets of 8-12. 👉🏽 DB Step Through Lunge - single leg work that demands stability. Love this lunge variation. 3 sets of 8 reps each. 👉🏽 DB Chest Supported Row superset with Chest Supported Straight Arm Pull Downs - the DB Chest Supported Row is one of my favorite Pull exercises that lights up my back. Added a band pull down to get more blood flow to the lats at the end of the session. 4 sets of 8-12 on the row with 4 sets of 15-20 on the pull down. •

🙌🏽 Transform Tuesday 💪🏽


Wish I had the first "before" picture! @marlin.chan has been committed for 7 months and shows up each day ready to hustle. The difference between the picture on the left (before) and the picture on the right (after) is only 6 weeks. Improved strength, physique and overall movement. From waking up everyday with back pain to that pain being almost non existent. A lot more to come from my guy. We are just getting started.

In order to "Lift For Life", you need to train smart.
-
Let me explain...
As of the last 6 months or so, I've been really focused on perfecting the form of all my lifts - rather than constantly stressing about going up in weights.
Since this, my main goals have been to improve form, create more tension, slow things down, control the movement, etc...
-
My intent, is to OWN every single rep.
-
In doing this, I have felt better than ever.
Recovery has been great, joints feel great, low back is completely pain free, I get a better pump, I actually am enjoying the workouts a little more, and I haven't lost any muscle or strength - in fact I've been slowly gaining muscle for sure and when I decide to test my strength, I'm confident it'll be up.
-
The point of this post is simple...
I listened to too many mentors and older coaches in the game talk about their beat up bodies and how they wished they focused on all of this way back.
I'm taking their advice now, while I'm young, so when I'am older I don't need to recover from years of wrecking my body.
So whether you're 50, 40, 30 or 20... you should be focused on training this way so you can have longevity in this game - or recover, so you can take the game back.
Unless you're a competitive power lifter, strongman or something... lift the heaviest shit possible.

I really just wanted to take a moment to be grateful for the @mind_vs_muscle podcast
-
@theobowie , @instamichaelnow and myself started this together what seems like forever ago based off the idea of spreading knowledge, making fun of each other, having a little side project to work on, and expanding or reach in the fitness industry...
-
It's become such an amazing experience and literally one of my favorite things to do, not to mention the friendship between us all has grown a ton.
Even though we're still only at the beginning stages of this and we will be growing A LOT more in the very near and long future...
It's already reaching people internationally.
We're getting messages every week from people learning, growing, seeing better results and being inspired to do more and be more.
-
To say I'm excited for more and grateful to be helping so many others would be a huge understatement.
Podcasting is a medium that allows us to do so much more and I'm so thankful we all sat down at Panera Bread in Renton WA that one Saturday morning to create the Mind Vs Muscle Movement.
