#TRAINERTIPTUESDAY: The lower the squat, the higher the booty πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
------
Ok, ok... maaaaybe I stole that one from friend + fellow instructor @dzaps31 a few years back πŸ˜‰ But besides being good motivation during a tough set, there's truth behind it. Often, the more (functional, controlled) range of motion, the more muscles you engage - and therefore, the more "work" that gets done. πŸ’ͺ🏻
------
BUTT (😬), that applies only if all of your parts + pieces moving like they should. Despite what you might have heard, squats are NOT bad for your knees; BAD squats are bad for your knees (and several other body parts). Being able to sit in a deep unloaded (read: bodyweight) squat (aka yoga "malasana") is an inherent movement pattern that we lose due to: sitting too much, poor movement + postural patterns, and frankly not practicing it. (Check out a toddler - I bet he or she can hang in a deep squat all day!)
------
There's always room for improvement, even (especially!) for me. Things to watch out for: β€’ knees collapsing in (valgus)
β€’ heels lifting/knees shooting forward
β€’ back rounding. ------
Things to assist you:
β€’ arms reaching forward (counter balance)
β€’ using a tool like a big medicine ball or yoga block to support you until you can on your own
β€’ resistance band above the knees to encourage knees out (not shown)
------
And finally, one of my very favorite mobility drills, which I will nickname "Magic Mike squats," and forgo sharing the more common reference because this is a family-friendly page 😜:
β€’ deep squat β€’ grab your feet (or ankles or touch the floor) and extend legs as you forward fold
β€’ back to squat
β€’ stand (optional) and repeat ------
Sped up 2x

Trainer tip Tuesday w/ @marcmegna . At ANATOMY we put a strong emphasis on lower body strength. We box squat often using a high box or low box as shown here. Box squatting places greater load on the larger, major squatting muscles of the hips, glutes, and upper hamstrings. This enables a deeper squat and the lifter to sit far back on the box, putting the glutes and hamstrings in a stretched position and the shins at or past perpendicular to the floor. It's also a great way track and remain consistent with depth. I've had chronic knee pain and several surgeries. Box squatting has helped me reduce knee pain and gain much needed lower body strength. #trainertiptuesday #iliveitanatomy #bodyarchitects

Your setup when preparing for #kettlebellswings is SOOO important, it will set the tone for the rest of the movement πŸ’ͺ🏼. (This is the same 4 ALL weight bearing exercises)
πŸ‘‰πŸΌMake sure your back is flat, your #core is tight and your πŸ‘ is down so that when you stand up you are using your legs to pull the weight off the floor and not your back πŸš«πŸ€“

Every step forward is a victory! #TrainerTipTuesday @nikkimetzger

#TrainerTipTuesday Reverse Lunge: Vicky, Brendan, and a surprise guest cover the Reverse Lunge #parisispeed #parisisparta #parisination #cucumber

We asked our favorite trainers to show us some of the biggest mistakes in form they see and teamed up to bring you #TrainerTipTuesday!
.
While we love to workout, we are not trainers, and we know our form isn't always perfect. So this is also super helpful for us!
.
@xavierquimbo of @speedplayla showed us how to perfect the Romanian Deadlift (RDL). Here are a few tips on the set up and the movement.
.
1️⃣ βœ”οΈ Start with your feet hip width apart. Keep your chest open and your shoulders down and back. Initiate the movement by sitting your hip behind you. ❌ Don't round your back like Joanna.
.
2️⃣ βœ”οΈ Keep the bar close to your legs. ❌ Don't have the bar too far forward, like Joanna and Grace. It'll put pressure into your lower back.
.
3️⃣ βœ”οΈ Keep your chin tucked as you hinge down and up. ❌ Don't get stuck staring at the mirror in front of you, like Grace.
.
Let us know what you think! And what other movements you want us and our trainers to show you!

***Battle Ropes!!*** Such a popular exercise right now!! πŸ”₯ @onnitacademy explains "Battle Rope Training is a staple in Unconventional Gyms across the country, and there's a good reason why: they're one of the most functional pieces of equipment for high intensity training and hardcore conditioning."
⬇️
If you are incorporating battle ropes into your workout regimen, make sure you are getting the most out of the them!! @weediddy does a great job showing us the ideal form/technique for this common rope exercise to maximize your results!! πŸ’ͺ

🚫Just say NO to T-Rex arm battle ropes. Little core is engaged. Also, creates undesirable neck, trap, and biceps tension. βœ…Instead allow arms to flow with the ropes. 🌊🌊🌊 should travel smoothly from wrists, through elbows and shoulders. The trunk/spine absorb the ropes force, making it an incredible tool to build core more effectively than traditional movements.

Trainer Tip Tuesday! Guys we all battle through injuries and sometimes we let them lag for too long. Hip Bursitis is no joke! Along with massages and foam rolling you should be doing these 2 strength exercises daily. Even if you don't suffer from bursitis it's still a good idea to keep the muscles in the hip complex strong along with the medial glutes. Monster Walks and The AB To AD have really helped a lot of our runners, athletes, and desk jockeys keep those hips strong and injury free. Try them out and let us know what you think! #TrainerTipTuesday #peoplehelpingpeople #hiptobestrong #bodyburnbyray #bigooppapump

Knowing your goal is the first step to training for fitness or performance. Once you know the goal, you can lay out a specific plan to help you reach that goal, like a road map.
_
Goals can be simple or complex but the main thing is to have one in mind every time you set foot in the gym.
Training is specific in that there will be a specific outcome depending on the training stimulus.

Happy Tuesday #basecampfam! Here's a trainer tip from @kelselauren
Happy Tuesday y'all! Let's talk about good form in the TRX and how a few cues can apply to multiple TRX exercises when you are standing and facing your anchor point:
πŸ’ͺ🏼 For the bicep curl (pictured) you want your palms facing up, elbows lifted away from the body and pull your hands towards the side of your face. Think pinky fingers to temples.
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ For the bicep curl and other TRX exercises facing the anchor point (the bicep clutch, row, and y fly for example), the following cues apply:
βœ… You want to maintain a plank position - shoulders, hips and knees in line.
❌ Don't let your hips lift before your shoulders and don't drop the booty low (seen above πŸ‘†πŸΌ).
βœ… Keep your shoulders down, keep your chest proud and rib cage down so the core stays engaged.
πŸ™‹ If you need help with any TRX exercises please reach out to one of the instructors, we are happy to help! Lastly, remember to smile and have fun πŸ˜„

#trainertiptuesday Nutrition Timing.πŸ… Today we're covering the "Anabolic Window". For those that don't the the anabolic window is the time frame following immediately after a workout that you eat in order to help your muscles recover and get maximum results from your workout. .
.
As you workout you're damaging muscle fibers and depleting your body of glycogen. Once the workout is completed you want to restore your glycogen levels by consuming carbs and repair the muscles by consuming protein.
.
.
If you ask most people in the gym how long the anabolic window is, most people will tell you 30-60 minutes and if you don't eat within that timeframe you're wasting your workout.
.
However there has been numerous studies showing that the anabolic window is different for everyone. Novice lifters have been shown to increase performance and recovery by eating as long as 8+ hours post workout. Results have also shown that advanced athletes tend to have shorter anabolic windows ranging anywhere from 20 minutes- 1 or 2 hours. .
The anabolic window can vary drastically from person to person. Because of this, I recommend having a post workout meal as soon as possible. .
*Note* It's not the end of the world if you "miss" the anabolic window. You're body will still recover from the food consume.

It's Trainer Tip Tuesday and we thought we'd switch it up a little! Today's tip is to keep setting goals, remember why you set them in the first place and why that specific goal is important to you. It's easy to fall off track, write it out in plain sight so you are constantly being reminded of what you are working towards!

#TrainerTipTuesday

Here at Anytime Fitness we believe in the power of accountability. Whether it is a friend, family member, or even one of our trainers, accountability will get you on the right track to helping you reach your health and fitness goals πŸ’‘Here are 5 tips to helping you stay accountable: πŸ—“Schedule out your training sessions ahead of time- Don’t wait until the last minute to schedule your weekly workouts. PLAN AHEAD πŸ—£Communicate your goals (both long and short term)- Tell 1 or 2 people who will check up on you and make sure you are still on track to reaching your goals. πŸ“Plan your daily meals- Don’t get caught in a crunch where drive through dinner is the easiest route. If you plan ahead, you can plan to pack a healthy meal on days or evenings when you cannot cook from home.🍎πŸ₯•πŸ₯— πŸ“œWrite out your goals and put them somewhere you can see them everyday!πŸƒπŸ‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ πŸ–ŠπŸ“‹SIGN UP!!!

Anyone can do a pushup! If you are doing pushups from your knees try these progressions instead to progress to a full pushup. #formfirst Keep a solid plank from head to toe. Start at the highest level and once you can do about 3 sets of 10, move to a lower incline. You'll be doing full pushups on the floor in no time! #trainertiptuesday #noexcuses #noequipmentneeded #justmove .
