  • First we crawl. Then we walk. Then we run and jump⁣.
⁣
Fitness is no different than learning how to walk. You don’t walk in the gym and go pick up 100 pound dumbbells your first workout.
⁣
First you just have to start moving. It’s not an all or nothing game. So don’t let your thoughts think it is. Start small and work your way up⁣
⁣
💙Cant commit to 4-5 days of workouts a week?⁣
— make a goal of working out 2-3 times a week⁣
⁣
💙Can’t drink 100 ounces of water in a day?⁣
— set s good fo 60-70⁣
⁣
💙Have a hard time hitting  10K steps?⁣
— shoot for 6-7K⁣
⁣
💙Can’t meal prep all your meals for the week?⁣
— cook 2-3 meals at a time, or cook bulk proteins and veggies to have on hand⁣
⁣
✨There is always a way to do SOMETHING instead is NOTHING. Take small steps and work your way up to larger goals⁣✨
⁣
Increasing movement, focusing on more whole foods , cutting back on eating out, adding in more water these are all things you can easily do right now
⁣
Don’t let your mind play tricks on you and make excuses that you can’t go all in so you instead do nothing⁣
⁣
Something > nothing⁣
⁣
Start small. Start today ⁣

  • Here I have my awesome client &  national level NPC figure competitor @lpetchlee1 performing a very effective Chinese Plank Pullover variation. Several years ago I introduced the Chinese Plank chest press and Chinese Plank pullover in an article I wrote (LINK IN BIO). Also for training programs that emphasize stability and muscle function check out my various programs on my website. 
The Chinese Plank is a great position for working the postural muscles particularly of the posterior chain. When combined with the single leg contralateral hip drive position, the effects and benefits are even greater. The single leg position combined with 90 degree knee flexion does wonders for instilling proper lower body alignment and contralateral glute activation that also transfers exceptionally well to sprinting mechanics for athletes.

If you want to further magnify the contralateral hip activation and resulting full body activation associated with the oblique slings, try adding in the mini band. Just be warned the level of glute activation, core recruitment, & rotary stability needed to dial these in is inordinately high. Performed with the bench in a longitudinal position as shown here further increases the core activation as there’s even greater rotational forces the lifter must resist to keep from falling off the bench.

It’s also worth noting that the incredibly high levels of full body tension does wonders for enhancing upper body mechanics. Combined with the Chinese plank it’s nearly impossible to perform these with anything other than perfect postural alignment which invariably improves shoulder function & glenohumeral joint stability. If you have trouble finding your technique on pullovers or chest presses definitely give this protocol a try. 
Also big thanks to the PTDC for selecting my Oblique sling article as one of the top articles of the week (https://www.theptdc.com/best-fitness-articles-october-6-2019 ). Check out the full article at https://www.advancedhumanperformance.com/blog/oblique-slings-functional-training

  • 🔥 Strongman with BOUNCE!  @paul_smith_94 is a POWERHOUSE‼️
.
.
Watch my guy Paul with a flawless series of progressive reactive depth jumps and a broad jump.  As a strongman he has a diverse training regimen that allows him to maximize both strength and athleticism.  This varying degree of jump stimulus tasks both vertical and horizontal characteristics of jumping, helping him to maximize training time and volume. Way to bounce brother‼️

  • I get a lot of questions about mobility specifically regarding implementation and where to start. The Landmine is a great place to start to feed that connection between foot and hip as well as create stability and strength between the two. From a programming standpoint its familiar as an implement and is easy to digest because putting a bar in an athletes hand is perceived as strength training, it allows an athlete lean in providing leverage and angular load, it creates structure in a session putting athletes in lines and most importantly in my opinion blurs the lines between warm up and the actual session making the concept of mobility training strength training #explorethecorners @sorinex @rehabscience @thefootcollective

  • Trying to keep my bulk as clean as possible has definitely been paying off! I have not felt this good at such a heavy weight 👌🏼 It’s hard to notice changes as of right now but I know at the end of the day it is gonna pay off! Just wait 👀 #Thiccc

This position has been hard for me for as long as I can remember. 11 years of playing sports like hockey with zero true mobility work did not do my lower body any favors. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Luckily the human body is incredibly adaptable 🧬, so it’s not too late. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
It may look like I am just sitting here stretching, but I am actually staring through everything in front of me as I focus on isometrically loading via progressive and regressive angle isometrics (PAILs/RAILs). ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Progressive angle= slowly driving into the stick as much as I can while attempting to bow it with as much force as I can produce⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Regressive angle = immediately reversing and trying to pull myself deeper into a stretch using lateral hip tissue⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Because I am loading are ISOmetrically at my true end range - you do not see my legs move much. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
It does not look like much, but it doesn’t have to. This work isn’t sexy, but it’s damn effective. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I followed with hip axial rotations at end range. Accumulating a little extra time here while using the fundamental movement of the hip at end range. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Internally rotating and trying to squeeze out a few more degrees and then repeating in external rotation.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Hip CARs were next on the menu. ⁣⁣⁣
