coachmikechadwick9. Trunk stability is vital during the Log Race and throughout P Company

Trunk stability is vital during the Log Race and throughout P Company to ensure you pass. ————— When muscles contract they create force and stiffness. It is the stiffness part that is important for stability. Think of the spine as a flexible rod that needs to be stiffened to bear load of the log on one side. This is the role of the muscles to obtain appropriate muscular stiffness around the spine; therefore, coordinating muscle activation in order for our body to function as a linked system. ————— Distal movement requires proximal stiffness!!! Consider trying to move a finger back and forth very quickly – the wrist needs to be stiffened otherwise the entire hand would move. Now using the same principle, consider the action of moving at speed, holding the logs rope toggle in your right hand. The pelvis must be stiffened to the spine otherwise the hip would fall to the right as you move forward. Less efficient and more injury prone. ————— Core stiffness is non-negotiable to enable you to move at speed with the log. Thus all the body movement needs appropriate coordination of muscles. On top of the required spine stiffness and core stability you’ll need bags of aggression and mental resilience, but that’s a later lesson. ————— #parachuteregiment #paras #pcompany #britisharmy #airborne #infantry #soldier #whodareswins #strength #strong #uksca #sfsg #uksf #afcharrogate #usmc #army #fitness #squat #trunkstability #core #strength #exerciserehab #coreworkout

📥 Comment what you want to see next! - 🇬🇧 The following is the organization of the British Parachute Infantry rifle section circa 1944-1945. This is an updated version of an infographic previously posted that featured the Sten Mk. III instead of the Mk. V. - ⚔️ The section deviated slightly from the standard infantry section with the expectation that it would need to operate more independently and be more capable of sustaining casualties due to its airborne mission. - ⚔️ The section consisted of 10 men lead by a Sergeant (whereas standard infantry sections were usually commanded by a Corporal). The section was split into the gun group and rifle group. - ⚔️ The gun group consisted of the Bren gunner, a mortarman (with a stripped down version of the two-inch mortar), and a sniper with a No. 4 Mk. I (T) (a Lance Corporal on paper). - ⚔️ The rifle group consisted of the section 2IC (a corporal, whereas a typical infantry section had the 2IC lance corporal in the gun group) and 5 riflemen. - ⚔️ Officially, there were two Sten submachine guns in the section. On paper, the mortarman may have been allocated a pistol, but likely carried a Sten in field. The mortarman's main job was dispensing smoke, as he carried only 6 smoke rounds in the field. The integration of a mortarman in the section was done partially to decrease the amount of men in the platoon, as normally there would be a separate mortar section in the platoon. - 🌇 The illustrations used in this infographic are based upon heavily edited photographic reference courtesy of the Royal Armouries, which are then drawn on top of in Adobe Illustrator. Illustrations are often deviate from original photo reference, usually to add or subtract features or characeristics of firearms to fit the period. At higher resolution, the illustrations resemble water color. - #paras #airborne #paratroopers #specialforces #reddevils #britisharmy #parachuteregiment #milsurp #smle #leeenfield #ww2 #worldwarii #gunstagram #gunsofinstagram #gunsofig #guns #firearms #milsurpguys #gunsdaily #weaponsdaily #gunchannels #igmilitia #2a #molonlabe #worldwar2 #sas #airsoftnation #milsim #reenactment #firearms

- n° 042 🚑🚒🚓🚔🚑🚒🚔🚑🚓 👀 Owner: @the_lorrylife 🚨 Model: Bedford MJ 🛠 Build: 1988 📟 KM: 10.000 🗺 Located: United Kingdom, Hampshire HIT THE ROAD JACK! Hi, I’m Tom and this is my lorry house! The Lorry Life started when I was 22 and decided I couldn’t afford a house and didn’t want to pay rent anymore. The best solution I came up with was to buy a lorry and build my own home on the back! After a lot of trawling through eBay, I finally found the perfect lorry to build my house on, the beastly 1988 Bedford MJ. The build began in November 2016, and, as I was building it mainly single handily, I didn’t move into it until November 2017. My house has everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen, log burner, bathroom with shower and composting toilet and most importantly space for surfboards! To maximise space, the bed is suspended from the ceiling on pulleys, raised during the day over the living room and lowers down to be slept on. It’s also fully off-grid, with solar panels and a rain water harvesting system. The lorry makes a fantastic home for me whilst I’m working, parked up on a farm in the New Forest. It’s also the perfect travel buddy, and my girlfriend and I have enjoyed numerous surfing holidays in it so far. We can’t wait until we can do more travelling in it, taking it over to mainland Europe or even Iceland! The Kitchen was made out of pallet wood and the work top was made from the original bed of the lorry. The best addition is the folding beer terrace at the front on the house over the cab and we have beer on tap as well. If you want to see how the lorry was built or keep up with all our adventures, check out our channel.

From my personal collection, British Army Sergeants 🇬🇧 sit with another British soldier dressed in what appears to be an Egyptian Army 🇪🇬 uniform sometime after the end of the First World War. All three soldiers wear campaign ribbons/ medals and one wears the fez of the Egyptian forces. Egypt had been a British Protectorate since 1882 and at the time of this photo, it was under Formal Protectorate status until 1922. It was not rare for British soldiers to serve in the Egyptian Army. In fact, 10 percent of the officer corps of the Egyptian Army was British and they led down to battalion level well into the 1920s. Here, the three men are relaxing and having drinks at a rather nice looking Cairo restaurant. You can see the waiter standing just behind the men and pith helmets in the foreground. #britisharmy #Egyptian army #britishprotectorate #britishhistory #egyptianhistory #britishempire #britishsoldiers #cairoegypt #egypt🇪🇬 #militarystyle #pithhelmets #fezhat #militaryuniform #militaryhistory #imperialwarmuseum #oldphotos #antiquephotos #sepiaphotos #antiquepostcards #oldpostcards #travelbloggerlife #travelblogging #travelbloggeres #photoblogger #bloggerphotography #photographyblogger #wwi #honorveterans #restaurantphotography

Today’s Veteran Tribute: British Army, Private: Damien R. Jackson. Born on July 9th 1986, in South Shields, Tyne & Wear, England. He enlisted in the Army in November 2003, and completed his basic training at ITC: Catterick, North Yorkshire. He then trained as a Paratrooper, passing the Combat Infantry Course (PARA) as well as the notoriously hard and gruelling Pre-Para Selection Course (P Company). After earning the coveted Maroon Beret, he was assigned to A Company, 3rd Battalion, Parachute Regiment (3 PARA). During this time he completed two operational exercises to Canada and Oman, as well as two operational tours of duty to Northern Ireland in 2004, and Basra , Iraq. He was also a Team Medic, and had shown keen interest in training as a Combat Medical Technician. In 2006, he was deployed to Afghanistan, and on July 5th 2006, Private: Jackson was sadly killed in action, from wounds sustained during a firefight with a large number of enemy forces in Sangin, Helmand Province. The Forward Operating Base, now used by the U.S. Marine Corps, known as (FOB: Jackson) was named after him. The base was formerly used by the British Armed Forces before being handed over to the U.S. Military.
