🔹Glute Training Series Part 16
👉🏼Banded Barbell RDL
🔥If you are ready to take your RDLs to the next level, give these bad boys a try!
👍🏼The added tension from the resistance band forces you to contract your glutes with more effort, yielding a CRAZY glute pump.
✅Loop a moderate/low tension looped band around the squat rack or other anchor point.
✅Step into the loop, and place the band under your ASIS (anterior superior iliac spine), aka the protruding hip bone.
✅Perform the same range of motion/movement you would on a normal RDL.
🏋🏼Implement this into your glute routine. Try 3-4 sets @10-15 reps with a moderate weight load, and focus on the glute contraction at the top!

I've got my first back somersault! This has been a long road. Moving into plyometric gymnastic training is not something you should just 'jump' in to. It's taken me almost 3 years of prehabilitation to get here. This back flip is a good one for me, but every so often I get this voice in my head that shouts "what the f@&k are you doing? You're 40 years old. You are going to hurt yourself!". Most the time this happens whilst I'm on the ground and I just look a dick...but twice now I've bottled it whilst upside down! I came straight down into my neck...the second time my instructor fell on top of me as he tried to rescue me. I've been unhurt both times. Using prehabilitation you can protect your body against likely injuries...whatever the sport or occupation. There is risk in everything we do. So protect your body against life. #mobility #backflip #somersault #realstrength #gymnastics #prehabilitation #neckpain #safetyfirst #falsegrip

•The Iliotibial Band: a hot topic as it’s a common injury among endurance athletes.
Do you really have IT-Band syndrome (ITBS)?
You may. One proposed mechanism of ITBS is an irritation of the bursa while another is “from compression by the ITB of the connective tissues that underlie the portion of the band between the lateral epicondyle and the knee joint line”. ITBS is typically seen in rowers, cyclists or runners from repetitive stress. Rehab should include:
-HS Group✔️
-G. Med/Max✔️
-Adductors✔️
-Core stability exercises✔️
The above coupled with manual therapy and decreasing exercise volume should quickly help this sports injury.
The current literature via systematic review, is inconclusive for a biomechanical cause of ITBS. However, some evidence suggests that decreased hip abduction and flexion can be contributing factors. ‘Prospective research suggested that greater internal rotation at the knee joint and increased adduction angles of the hip may play a role in the aetiology of ITBS and that the strain rate in the iliotibial bands of these runners may be increased compared to healthy controls’ (Louw).
What else could it be? If your ITBS has persisted for quite some time and you have tried a plethora of modalities, it is unlikely that you have ITBS. Do you have low back pain? Maybe it’s time to think your ITBS is referred pain from the L5 nerve root. A full history and proper exam need to be conducted to come to this diagnosis of course. But this is not uncommon•

If you or someone you know has just been diagnosed with cancer, this word might be all you're hearing. As difficult as it might be to contemplate physical activity during this time, it's important to seek advice on an appropriate exercise plan as soon as possible after diagnosis. ⏳ Getting your body as strong as possible to take on the rigors of cancer treatment - no matter the type - may enhance your level of treatment tolerance and thus long-term outcomes. "Prehabilitation beats rehabilitation." 💪🏼

Northwest area schoolboy amateur boxing champion 14 year old @abdulk.1 training montage from today. 
We worked on reactive lower and upper body power via box jumps and tractor tyre push battles. 
Followed by weighted lunges, bench rows and band pull aparts. 
Strength and power training are often neglected in boxing circles due to old myths and misconceptions such as building too much muscle, inflexibility etc. 
Punching power is the result of technique above all else. Even to the extent that muscles really matter, it's the big muscles of the lower body that generate the true force.
A successfully executed punch transfers the power from the lower body through a fighter's torso and delivers it via the fist, like a battering ram. It's all about turning the body into a recoiling machine. And to turn your body into a machine requires a mastery of technique.

🔹Glute Training Series Part 14
👉🏼Barbell Good Morning
🔥Here is a weighted progression of the good morning from yesterday's post.
✅Place the barbell on the upper or mid traps traps (not on the neck).
✅Hinge at the waist.
✅Keep a neutral/straight spine.
✅Feel your hamstrings eccentrically contract.
✅Drive your hips up by squeezing your glutes to the top.
🏋🏼Implement this into your glute/posterior chain workout if you can successfully do the banded good morning in my previous post. Try 3-4 sets @8-12 reps with a moderate weight load. Don't go too heavy on this one!

🔹Glute Training Series Part 13
👉🏼Banded Good Morning
🔥One of my favorite ways to either warm up your glutes and hip extensors, or simply torch your glutes at the end of your workout is this exercise.
👍🏼Using a moderate or light power band, step into it and make sure the tension is equal under your feet. Then, loop it over your traps (not directly on your neck), and start performing the range of motion.
🏋🏼Implement this during your warmup, 3-4 sets of 15-20 explosive reps, or at the end of your workout as a burnout. Your backside will
feel like it's falling off.

Research for any sport is a must. Nothing can be accomplished if you've not done your research. Study the elites. See what they do, how they do it differently. Ask questions. Watch videos. Read research papers. Dig deep into the vast knowledge base that's out there and then go and apply. Take notes on your own performance, be critical of yourself for improvement not as a put down. Build yourself up stronger everyday. 😎#gosteelcraft #dragonboatdubai #teamnogueira #bjjdubai

Correcting muscle imbalances and movement patterns is not always easy, but it is VITAL if you want to keep working your body toward new goals and minimise your chance of injury over time! 
Got a little niggle that comes and goes or just an outright pain stopping you from doing certain exercises? That means something in your body isn't moving or activating as well as it should be! 
TRUST ME.. Take the time to find out what's going on and fix it!
Right now I'm trying to correct my hip movement and strengthen my glutes. It's slow,  but of course correcting over 10 years of muscle imbalance and poor movement is going to take time! Right now I am pain free, so why bother?? Because to reach my goal to complete a pistol squat well and run a lot of KM while marathon training injury free requires optimal hip movement and glute strength! 
Don't ignore pain or problems, take the time to strengthen your body right and every move you make will feel BETTER!

Miss Noelle and I had a great weekend up in my hometown of Winchester, VA, booked solid with events and coaching sessions across two different boxes. 
This morning was the first time that I've seen a video of myself presenting in a seminar format on essential running mechanics. And I have to say, the passion is there. You can see it, and you can feel it. And to me, that is an incredible privilege. 🤓

If you’re passionate about what you do and what you represent, then that passion will spread to the people around you. I find that being passionate about your abilities in whatever job you may have is a big part of what keeps you going and what keeps you motivated.

It is that passion that drives me to study countless hours, to always learn with an open mind, and to think outside of the “box” and build relationships within every community we are a part of.

After 13 years of working within the rehabilitation world, I feel that I have just scratched the surface of what there is to know and different ways to approach fundamental human biomechanics, and every day is a new opportunity to further that drive and that passion for movement and rehabilitation.

🚫NEVER TELL ME AGAIN THAT I CAN'T SQUAT🚫
Long story short. My dear client Glenda "booked" a knee replacement next month.
.

Before training with me, she was told to avoid the squat exercise at all cost. .
.

So, just imagine if you don't execute a fundamental human action for good while waiting rehab post- surgery. Imaging letting go both motion pattern and muscular activation. Functional chaos, right? .

Why Glenda grooving her squats? Because I need her to start her therapeutic approach from NOW, before the surgery. Prehabilitation before rehabilitation, you could say.
.

In other words, a smooth motion pattern plus body weight + supervised-external-resistance should help us to avoid muscular atrophy. The less wasted her legs and hip musculature are, the quickest her recovery should be.... .

By the way, apart from negotiating with her body weight by manipulating the vector provided by the suspension system, she is carrying a 20Kg vest so as to enhanced the pump rather that pursuit worthless endurance drills (the ones 20+ reps). .
Ah, before I hang up, Im not suggesting that anyone should try this option before knee reco or knee replacement. Heck, NO. You got to know your referred patient or Client very well first and understand about both skeletal and neuromuscular function. Otherwise refer!!!!! Thanks for watching. Happy to discuss further.

Imaging letting go both motion pattern and muscular activation. Functional chaos, right? . Why Glenda grooving her squats? Because I need her to start her therapeutic approach from NOW, before the surgery. Prehabilitation before rehabilitation, you could say. . In other words, a smooth motion pattern plus body weight + supervised-external-resistance should help us to avoid muscular atrophy. The less wasted her legs and hip musculature are, the quickest her recovery should be.... . By the way, apart from negotiating with her body weight by manipulating the vector provided by the suspension system, she is carrying a 20Kg vest so as to enhanced the pump rather that pursuit worthless endurance drills (the ones 20+ reps). . Ah, before I hang up, Im not suggesting that anyone should try this option before knee reco or knee replacement. Heck, NO. You got to know your referred patient or Client very well first and understand about both skeletal and neuromuscular function. Otherwise refer!!!!! Thanks for watching. Happy to discuss further.

Exercises shown:
1️⃣ Incline Bench Press (70kg x 6 / 80kg x 4)
2️⃣ Bodyweight Pull-Ups x 20
3️⃣ Machine Press
•
Just some snippets of my low-intensity day whereby I try not to exert too much effort both physically and mentally.
-
Some people advocate doing nothing on your rest days, but the second worst thing you can let your muscles do on a rest day is nothing. Of course the first being training that muscle hard again and causing further life threatening complications such as Rhabdomyolysis.
-
You are essentially minimising blood flow to those areas by doing nothing. In the process, important nutrients (carried by the blood) and blood will not be able to fulfil their duties efficiently such as rebuilding muscle and transporting away waste products.
-
Do your muscles a favour, do something.

@Regrann from @stretchingsacenturion -  Muscle imbalances and ratios! Take a look at those quads! Surely that can't be right? Or can it? In the body we have things called "agonists" and "antagonists". One muscle acts as an antagonist on the other and will sometimes be stronger, placing the balance of the stress on the joint capsule. This frequently occurs in the hamstring/quadriceps relationship. The imbalance between the two is known to cause cramping and spasms with secondary hamstring tightness. As you can see from the picture, usually our quads are bigger and stronger. Athlete hamstring strains and tears are becoming a common phenomena, which if uncorrected will limit an athletes career. We know that the hamstrings protect the ACL and the quads ADD stress to the ACL. So how do we avoid or correct these imbalances? Correction can be done through a combination of strengthening and flexibility training (yaay stretching 👍🏻). Is it something to worry about? I feel that if your hamstrings can cope with the stress we put on them, stretch regularly and strengthen where you can, unless you are a competitive physique athlete, where symmetry comes into play, you will always experience this imbalance as the quadriceps are about 30-40% stronger than the hamstrings. #stretchingsacenturion #stretchtherapy #hamstrings #quadriceps #imbalances #prehabnotrehab #prehabilitation #africa #health #wellness #africahealthandwellness #nutrition #inspiredbyyourhealth #monday #mondaymotivation #inspiration #healthyliving

Amateur boxer and northwest area schoolboy champion 14 year old @abdulk.1 collage of training from yesterday. I structure and periodize all his training to get him in peak physical condition come fight time. 
Yesterday we worked on both lower and upper body power via box jumps and reactive push ups. Main priority on the box jumps was landing mechanics. 
Additionally, developing upper body strength via 40kg x 3 reps x 4 sets Swiss bar bench which puts less stress onto his shoulders due it's neutral grip. Lastly we did inverted rows with band attached to create additional resistance. Boxers generally have overdeveloped front deltoids and pec major therefore, we do a lot of exercises which work the opposing muscle to try and reduce the incidence of injury. Balance is vital to keep an athlete injury free.

•Recently I have seen an increase in hamstring injuries with no bias to race, age, sex or sport🤺⛹🏽🏋🏾‍♀️🤽🏻‍♂️• •Revisiting hamstring injuries: 
Is it really a hamstring strain? The adductor magnus (AM), as seen above, has two heads, the adductor head and the hamstring head. The hamstring head of the AM is important because it assists the hamstring (HS) group in their action of extension of the hip. The adductor head adducts the hip and stabilizes the pelvis during gait. A grade I strain of the AM can mimic a typical HS strain. Here lies the importance of knowing the anatomy well, differentiating and diagnosis: ruling out referred pain from the lumbar spine, inspection (for ecchymosis/brusing) manual muscle testing and palpation of the local muscles. Key points to prevent injury:
-Posterior Chain Strengthening💪🏻✔️
-Eccentric. Eccentric. Eccentric Loading👑✔️
-Hip strengthening: abductors AND adductors
-Dynamic warm-ups!✔️
Treating an AM strain in the acute setting is RICE and address muscle imbalances. NSAIDs may not be beneficial because they may delay soft-tissue healing. Manual therapy and light isometric exercise may begin within a few days but pain is the guide. Starting with neuromuscular control of the pelvis, balance/proprioception, local strength/endurance and a progression into eccentric loading•

[Stretching For Your Goals, Literally]
-
Stretching is the most common tool to improve flexibility. Flexibility is vital in everyday activities, of which include walking, carrying things and even sitting down.
-
There are 3 types of stretching:
1. Static
2. Dynamic 
3. Proprioceptive Neural Facilitation (PNF)
-
Stretching is especially important to elongate muscles that may become too tight either due to repeated tension or habitual reduction of Range of Motion (ROM).
-
An example of repeated tension is constantly training your bicep, but forgetting to stretch them. The bicep muscle will become shorter as it is used to the constant tension of flexion and you will find it harder to straighten your arm. Habitual reduction of ROM is commonly explained with desk jobs. The constant habit of sitting down places the hip flexor (front muscle of your hip) into a shorten ROM, and it will be harder to extend your hip (or straighten your upper body).
-
Tight muscles can cause injuries mainly due to improper body mechanics used in daily activities. Tight hip flexors can lead to knee pain and dysfunction while tight chest muscles will lead to a poor posture. Tight abdominal muscles will lead to a rounded back that will increase the chances of your back snapping under weights such as a heavy back pack or even your child nephew.
-
The descriptions and explanations for the 3 different types of stretches can be found easily on the Internet. I will additionally explain them in the future as well.
-
However, I feel that the importance of stretching has been undermined in today's context and raising awareness is the first step to minimising injuries, postural issues and improper body mechanics due to inflexibility.

🔹Glute Training Series Part 9
👉🏼Proper Squat Form
🔥Here you see an anterior, posterior, and lateral view (Swipe to see them all) of how a proper goblet squat should be performed. When done correctly, the goblet squat is an excellent bang-for your buck movement that hammers your glutes, legs, core, and shoulder blades.
❌Don't let your knees cave in, shoulders round forward, or low back round.
✅Initiate the movement with your hips back. Keep your lumbar and thoracic spine straight, while retracting your shoulderblades. Keep your knees slightly outside your hips.
🏋🏼Tomorrow I will show you how to do this movement via video, and how you can implement it into your routine!

For many people, the fundamental movement of bringing the arms overhead has been lost, which could lead to potential injury in and around the shoulder area, neck and lower back. This is a good self mobility assessment to complete. The optimal range is to get your shoulders in line with your ears vertically without hyperextension of the back or pushing the head forward... if you can't, it's shoulder, chest and thoracic mobility for homework! #movement #flexibility #mobility #fitness #yoga #nike #stretch #core #body #health #crossfit #pt #rehabilitation #prehabilitation #injury #prevention #shouflerflexion #posture #foamroll #triggerpointtherapy

I always warm up with resistance bands regardless of what I'm doing. Here is a quick snip of a rotator cuff and global shoulder region warm up while also emphasizing complete core control. Do each movement 10-12 times and go through the circuit twice. I'll use this before my upper body says, but even before my legs day to warm up that shoulder girdle before loading it when hitting the lower quarter. #mindfulness #physicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #physicaltherapystudent #dpt #dptschool #dptstudent #personaltrainer #legsday #shoulders #resistancebands #rehabilitation #prehab #prehabilitation #exercise #workout #movementforlife #movement #stability #core #ACEfitness #ACEcertified #ACECPT #ACEpersonaltrainer

What's up guys! Here is an advanced version of the scapula retraction from the other day. It's the same concept of moving the scap downward and back with a second or two squeeze. This will really help with posture and strengthens all those tiny back muscles which could even get rid of headaches and stiff necks! 
And yes, I shot this on a potato and had my roommate hold the camera. And I just used our balcony, I would recommend a pull-up bar if you can though! 
3 sets of 12-15 reps before for mobility or during the first part of any upper body day! #prehabbeatsrehab #physicaltherapystudent #liftpainfree

PNF D2 Flexion/Extension
-
PNF patterns are great tools to work every upper extremity muscle within an extremely functional pattern. When performed correctly and without compensation, these motions are more challenging than they may seem at first. Adding a landmine barbell as a form of resistance becomes an added challenge; working with two fixed points (your shoulder and the landmine itself). Before adding in resistance, make sure you can complete all components of the D2 pattern in a seamless motion. Stay tuned for some more PNF variations this month!

DYNAMIC stretching pre run using controlled leg movements helps to improve range of motion, loosen up muscles and increase heart rate, body temperature, and blood flow to help you run more efficiently! #movement #running  #mobility #fitness #yoga #nike #stretch #body #health  #pt #prehabilitation #injury #prevention #beatsoncharity
Mattek-Sands dislocating her knee and rupturing her patellar tendon 
on court... so horrible for any athlete to go through and hopefully she will have the corrective surgery, subsequent rehabilitation and can get back on court. However...leads me to the thought process of how important PREhabilitation and conditioning is as part of any training program. Should she have had more regular injury and movement screening and a targeted approach to identifying  any possible instabilities and weaknesses found then perhaps there is a chance this injury may have been avoided or she nay have sustained an injury of a lesser severity. Obviously there are a lot of confounding factors to this particular injury, however generally speaking... please have regular injury and movement screening! It's much better and easier to rehabilitate rather than rehabilitate! 💪👊😊 Do not avoid any niggles no matter how small - nip the problem in the bud! #outreachphysip #prehabilitation #injuryscreening #wimbledon #Mattek-Sands

10 man boat today. Coach working on our balance. Small boats tip easy, so if your centre of gravity isn't on point the boat will bounce, slowing it down. 😭 work to keep centre of gravity outside the boat and no more tipping. 😁❤️😁#hornetproteam #hornetwatersports #dragonboatdubai #dragonboatfamily #gosteelcraft 
Be the change you want to see in the world. GHANDI
