When no one is around to help you record your workout, so all you get is a picture of the aftermath.

No matter what back extension machine you choose, the primary muscle group involved is the erector spinae. Made up of three muscles -- the iliocostalis lumborum, longissimus thoracis and spinalis -- the erector spinae runs down the entire length of your spine, all the way from your neck to your lower back.

This was with my good friend Justin. I think this was my first real backpacking trip that I planned and executed. Shit was dopppppeeee!!! Going back soon with the lovely @cesquinha to explore the Grand Canyon of Yosemite!

How close are you to living at your edge? Do you choose the comfy route? Well established and paved?
I've learned to creep as close as I can to my edge wherever that is at the present moment. Sometimes I go up to it and retreat. Sometimes I stay. It feels good there. Hard at times but worth it.

When you find yourself not doing something because of your fear or lack of experience in something... this is a place where the fuck it mentality can pay off!

If you’re looking for some variation on the speed ladder here is a video of my awesome client Josh, executing a lateral hop and stick as well as a dynamic stability multiplane hop and stick with increased stimulus.
🔹🔹🔹🔹
Here are a few reasons why this drill effective.
1) A year around conditioning program should include agility, balance and plyometric drills which aide in improving muscular strength and power.
2) With ACL and other knee injuries occurring at a rapid rate, it is important to develop neuromuscular control and stabilization of the knee joint.
3) Neuromuscular Control drills train the body to respond to different proprioception information that force the body to maintain joint stability.
🔹🔹🔹🔹
Tips.
1. Progress into something like this under the watchful eye of a professional. This is not for beginners
2. Increase speed of the hops as a progression. Changing the speed adds different challenges to the system
3. Progress the drills by changing surface texture (as seen on the last drill)

Jaw mobility! Who does this shit?! I do! 😂😂 Think about how much we talk, chew, clinch because of stress, hold back on saying things, hold back smiling, and so much more.
All of that shit can cause problems/pain all the way down the entire kinetic chain to your toe. Remember that everything that can move, we should move it intentionally and keep things all aligned.
Move your jaw along with all those other parts you mobilize. It's good for you. I promise!

Check out my neck muscles when I'm doing this exercise. You can see how intimately related my jaw is to my neck, down to my shoulders! It's all connected!! Happy mobilizing y'all! Move it or lose it!

If you do it at the gym, yes you'll be looked at weird. Who gives a fuck! Do that shit for your body and health... and gains.

What sets apart your strength and performance program from the hundreds of training options out there? ⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️
Here at Weights of Valor you have the option to experience a Functional Movement Screen. FMS consist of 7 simple fundamental movements that uses a grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. 🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴
Through this screening process, FMS recognizes functional limitations and asymmetries. These imbalances decrease the positive effects of training and distort body awareness leading to injury. ⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️
Once these weaknesses and or imbalances are identified a customized corrective exercise program is given to the athlete to perform 3/4x week. We suggest these exercises be performed prior to your workouts. 🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵
For a limited time only we will be offering a free Functional Movement Screen ($85 value) with the purchase of one of our training packages. ⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️
Ready to do the FMS?
1. Schedule your screen. Email us at weightsofvalor@gmail.com to request an initial training consultation. 🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵🔵
At Weights of Valor we are committed to optimal human movement patterns. Contact us to learn more about how we asses our athletes or to schedule your FMS screen!

I dig this multiple pictures and videos thing!

Here's some of the meals I've been making for the last 3 years. I have gotten to understand the term Whole Food very well. It took hard ass work to find a flow in this layer of cooking and preparing meals. Simple food. Simple ingredients. Consistent day in day out.
After awhile I began to absolutely 100% LOVE MY FOOD! I feel if fueling my passion to serve others. To work on healing my body and mind. I can feel it helping me in my dreams and goals. It's been a journey for sure. Hard, long, & with many failures. One of the best decisions I have ever made, was to set a goal of sourcing, cooking, and preparing 95% on my meals for 1 year. INCLUDING any travels and social engagements. I would bring my food to restaurants and eat my meal with friends. I'd take my food wherever. I wouldn't budge. I sacrificed going out with friends, my partner, to make food at home. That year has carried over into almost 3. Holy shit Batman. I invite you to give it a go at least once in your life. Commit to 95 whole food diet sourced and prepared be you and remove 95 % of Alcohol, sugar, wheat, pasteurized dairy, and white table salt. You can do it. I believe you can. An INVESTMENT WORTH MAKING.
That sando at the end though! 😳🤗goddamn was it good!

The struggle is real. It's not always fun and games. I'm not always prancing around working out and being inspirational. Sometimes I go into the shadows and hide. Sometimes my mind won't shut the fuck up and I can't focus on any one thing. Sometimes I binge eat like I'm not gonna eat again. Sometimes I'm a grumpy ass dude to my partner for no reason. Sometimes I doubt my own abilities.
With the world of Instagram fitness, it's easy to see others "killing" it and think, "man...I suck... they're so talented... their life seems perfect...wow his abs... I won't ever have abs like that...they are naturally gifted...etc etc"
What we don't see...is the hardships.. the pain... the arguments...the actual work...the backslides.. We can only use these challenges to grow. It's all in how you view them. Annoying or opportunities? I'm inspired by my mentor @elliotthulse to share all of it. To become the strongest version of ourselves, we must face all of life honestly. The light and the dark.
I'm right there with you doing the work to become the strongest version of myself. Let's all help each other rise. It's the only way.

The only way to bring in a Monday...in the trenches getting better ! @kelseyrine working that posterior chain and executing a trx sled row. Great drill that challenges your anaerobic system system as well as arm and leg strength. Three things to consider as you "Load Em Up!" ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
1) Person should maintain a neutral head with no forward head movement on the "pull"

2)Shoulders should not over extend on the pull. Ensure proper lat engagement (we call this packing the lats)
3) The pull should occur at the bottom of the squat position, ensuring a neutral spine and maintaining core integrity.
