W2D3 Muscular Conditioning w/ Hypertrophy
Low bar squat 305 lbs (138.3 kg) 1xMR10, 295 lbs (133.8 kg) 10x3 w/ 60 second rest between sets
Paused sumo deadlift 3x8
Set a new squat 10RM but really had to dig deep today. Squat back-off sets were the hardest thing I've ever done in the gym.
Had an awesome #squat lesson with @danpetkovsekpl from @torquebarbell on Tuesday!!🏋️♀️💪 Learned a bunch of tricks to improve my squat. Played around with bands, box squats and low bar. Great session - thanks Dan!! Looking forward to tackling my first powerlifting meet in the near future 😈😬
Compilation of these past few weeks training for these strong clients of mine. Proud of them for aiming and achieving for their own desired goals. Its all about motivation, strength and commitment. More to come. If you are interested to join in the journey do visit @jcmbnfitness gym. 😊
There's about 4 months in between these pictures. All it takes to get results is a solid program, good nutrition, and willpower and commitment that is out of this world. I still have a long ways to go, but I'm loving the journey so far.
405,415, and All-Time PR 425
This marks the end of Johnnie Candito's strength program.
Will start a modified smolov jr program starting Sunday focus on the squat and deadlift as I come down in weight. -Always remember to continue to do what makes you happy. No matter how old you are, because life doesn't wait for anyone. You can't get your 20's back or your 30's. So take advantage of the time you have now to do all what you want-when you want no matter what people tell you.
Trust me I'm still learning myself.
Do you have that low back tightness that travels up the back on ether side of the spine? Here's how to stretch it.
The Erectors are a group of muscles broken up into different divisions. This stretch will stretch the Lumborum devision and the Thoracis devisions of the erector muscles. These guys run along either side of your spine.
Hold each stretch for a minimum of 30 sec up to 2 min while focusing on breathing into your stomach and relaxing your back with each breath.
Using prone knee flexion as an activity to promote hip/pelvis dissociation because he has back pain (knee replacement 4 months ago...no PT afterward).
Me: "how many degrees do you think your knee is bent?"
Him: "probably about 90*" (he has full passive motion, he just doesn't use it). Sensory-motor first. No way he can move well if he doesn't know where his body is in space.
Занятия т/а раз в неделю остаются в моих тренировках. Хочу выступить на соревнованиях по т/а, и всё, можно вообще исключать :) буду кмс по шахматам и тяжёлой атлетике - вечно у меня всякие крайности. 🙌🏻 О следующей крайности расскажу позже 😄🤗#weightlifting#squat#frontsquat#clean#jerk#crossfit
