The Deep Six Trust. You're going to want to sit down for this one. This variation is from Jill Miller's (@yogatuneup) Deep Six Release video that can be found on @24LifeMag's series Recovery 2.0, Three strategic self-care moves pay off with better training and performance. _ 🗝 Placement is key for this move: Position the therapy ball in the soft tissue space between the gluteal muscle and the sacrum while sitting or lying down. Wedge the ball to the outside of the coccyx into the soft tissue area (as seen pictured here on the right buttock). The therapy ball should penetrate deep enough so as you sit into the pose it grabs the tissue and slides it upwards. 🎉 Congratulations Roll Model, you've just targeted #TheDeep6: the piriformis, the two gemelli muscles, obturator externus, obturator internus and last but not least, the quadratus femoris. These muscles not only help laterally rotate your femor in the hip joint, but also provide deep power for the gluteals with every step you take. 🔮 Breathe and allow 2 -5 minutes of sustained compression with the therapy balls to work their magic. Did you make it the whole five minutes? Let us know in the comments below by dropping the crystal ball._ 🧘🏽‍♂️ Thanks to Yogi and #rollmodel extraordinaire, @dbrownyoga for showing us how it's done. #MVP_ (Post edited.)

🏋️‍♀️Olympic Lifting Alternatives⤵️ . ❓Have you wanted to do the Olympic lifts but don’t have the time to learn them? Do you want to improve performance/power but not invest so much time into learning technique? Tag a friend who you want to bust these our with or could learn from the video! . 👉 The “Olympic Lifts” are the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. These are the two lifts competed at the Olympics in weightlifting and are an amazing expression of strength, power, speed, motor control, and dedication. The lifts can deliver some amazing benefit in those areas - having the capacity to help people create more force and do so quickly. However, to get the full benefit of the traditional lifts it takes getting the technique down. . 🥇Weightlifting is a sport, not something you hone in 15 minutes. This makes for a difficult situation where a lot of people who perform the movements do so poorly and are not getting the outcome from the movement desired. With @CitizenAthletics1 we focus on getting the outcome, and select methods that will accommodate our athletes. We aren’t trying to create specialized weightlifters, but develop healthy, generally more athletic individuals. . 💡If you’re a weekend warrior looking to increase your vertical power, or someone who likes to do spartan races and want some more umf in your step, then Olympic lifts could deliver that. Taking the time to learn it though is probably not worth the investment. In contrast, you could perform the alternative movements outlined in the video and still get the benefit of more power, higher rate of force development, etc. . 📌The videos detail alternatives with lower skill requirement, easier set up, and more freedom of movement so they are more forgiving for technical errors. We use many of these variations regularly in programming, particularly when we enter into a power focused block of training. #CitizenAthletics

There is a growing body of evidence that exercise and learning are inextricably linked. Multiple studies show that children who have an opportunity to MOVE while performing academic tasks consistently perform better than their sedentary peers. While this presents a huge challenge for schools it is something that every parent and coach should keep in mind. ______________ #zhealth #neuropro #neurology #neuroscience #braintraining #brainbasedfitness #brainhealth #movementculture #prehab #trainsmarter #naturalpainrelief #personaltraining #sportscoaching #functionalmovement #personaltrainers #appliedneuroscience #pain #painisalwaysinyourhead #zhealthcertification #painrelief  #brainanatomy #movewellmoveoftenbewell #brainfitnessgame #zcertfication #ztrainer #visiontraining #backpainrelief #coaching #movetolearn

MONDAY: moves you can do at the gym with the cable machine or at home with a thick #resistanceband These moves are tough for me on my left shoulder due to my pinch nerve in my rotator cuff. 🙁I have rehabbed it, but my #strength & ROM is diminished on my left. My injury came from carrying my son & repetitive motion. 💯 So all you #supermoms out there, make sure to switch arms when carrying your baby or the car seat carrier! #momlife I still do a lot of lifting & assist Tyler with transfers so very important to prevent injury! Be smart when exercising & in your daily life!———————————————————————— 1️⃣ Spilt Stance pull downs R & L-keep elbow in tight 2️⃣ Wide sumo stance-bring hands down to pelvis-don’t lock out elbows 3️⃣ Curtsy Squat- pull downs ———————————————————————— 💢 10-12 reps each move, choose weight accordingly 3 x thru ————————————————— - - @fitwomenworkouts_ @gununegzersizi @gym_videos @homeworkouts_4u @perform_better

APPRECIATION POST:❤️ I do apologize for the length! I hope one day, I am an inspiration to others just like you have inspired me Wali. Recovery is tough. Giving up is so easy for any of us, in good health or not. For the longest time, I was self conscious to post about what has happened throughout my recovery because I didn’t want anyone thinking I was seeking sympathy. That being said, Wali you are a miracle worker. I know I still always say “We’ve got so much work to do!” but you’ve helped me come so far. As you can see in the first clip at my first session with Wali, I was shaky, unstable, and constantly felt defeated even after months of physical therapy. And as we know, everything is connected! When you walk incorrectly, slouch too much, compensate/favor your form within your daily positions or sleep incorrectly- you can cause yourself pain without even realizing! Present day, I’m still not where I want to be because of my AVN in the other hip but I have learned so much in this process. I am constantly battling pain spells but I have learned so many techniques to help with relieving pain that I never learned in years of competitive sports! I’ve been blessed to learn new hobbies 🤣 while spending my time wisely taking care of myself the proper way. As you all know, I’ve always been active but I’ve never taken care of my body to this extent, especially with Wali’s constant dedication and coaching. If your ever in the Cranford, NJ area, GIVE IT A TRY! He is so reasonable priced and focuses on your goals, but most importantly, YOUR BODY’S NEEDS. He focuses on form, your breathing techniques, making it more of a functional movement therapy session which has endured so much better with my body. I’m making the promise to myself to be more open with my recovery and hopefully share exercises/techniques that may help others throughout this process. BUT THANK YOU WALI, YOUR THE BEST!!! . . . #totalhipreplacement #thrr #functionalmovement #endurancetraining #broadwaystrong #broadwaystrongfitness #spoonie #hiphopdance #rockclimbingwomen #painfreetraining #disabilityawareness #avascularnecrosis #strongwomen

If you set a performance goal, the physical results will follow. In the next few months I’m going to focus on: • Doing two pull ups by June • Getting my left and right splits by April • Doing a forearm handstand by April • Increasing my deadlift (weight tbd- need to find 5x5. What are some performance goals you have in mind?

The bird dog

DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH CORE STABILITY? by @pellofitness l - The bird dog is one of those exercises that many people say is too easy. This is usually because they are doing it wrong:) The better you are at stabilizing, the harder the bird dog will become. - The key here is to focus on minimizing any shift in the hips as you lift your arm and leg. Usually, people will shift to the hip that the knee is down. Also, if you notice in the video, my spine does not round or arch. It stays neutral the entire time. Adding to that, my hips never rotate. They always face the floor. - This is a great warm-up exercise, but is also great for some core work at the end of the session. I usually have my clients do anywhere from 6-10 reps per side. Doing more can get a little repetitive. - This will target the core, but also the glutes and shoulders to some degree. - What is your favorite core exercise? - #pellofitness #carmeltotalfitness #birddog #core #corework #coreworkout #functional #functionalmovement #functionalexercise #coreexercise #lookgoodnaked #abs #fitness #mombod #fatburn #abwork #fatlosschallenge #fatlossjourney #fatlossgoals #strongdad #smallwaist #exercisetip #exercisevideo #gymtip #gymexercise #floorexercise #pilates #yoga #abstrength #absarebuiltinthekitchen

One of my programming principals ———————————————————————— As stress accumulates variability (complexity) will begin to drop off. The best performers tend to be the ones who can maintain variability the longest under stress, rather than the ones who have the highest levels of its respective attributes. The issue with variability is that it has a cost, and the major cost is strength (intensity) production. I’ve come to believe that finding the sweet spot of variability MED (minimum effective dose) while also being able to drive strength and power (intensity) is key. Understanding what to load (intensity) and what to practice (variability) has been crucial for me, both from training and a general health perspective. I like to break it down like this; ⚡️Movement prep- variability (vid 1,2) ⚡️Neural prep- variability (vid 3) ⚡️Power- intensity (buncha deadlifts) ⚡️Strength- intensity (vid 4) ⚡️Accessory- variability (vid 5) ⚡️Aerobic- goal/preference dependent variability or specificity As always, @jamescerbie with the devastating programming 🦍🦍🦍🦍 ———————————————————————— Also, my seminar dates are being announced soon! So far I’ve locked in St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Boston. I’m also in the process of scheduling New York, Austin, and Seattle! Keep your 👀’s open fam! #compoundperformance

You shouldn’t skip isometric exercises! They are very important when you want to take a photo 😆 . . Shoes: @vivobarefoot ! The more flexible a shoe is, the easier it will be for the foot to move in it's most natural manner. Think of gloves that you may wear on your hands from time to time. The thicker the glove, the harder it is to feel and move your fingers. If you really need to do something where you can feel what your are doing you probably would need to wear a very thin glove. Shoes are like that for the feet. The thinner and more flexible they are, the stronger (and healthier) your feet get. . . ❗️Link in my BIO ❗️ ..... ..... ..... ..... . .

Wanting to get into training but struggle with motivation or consistency ❓ - Training with friend or partner maybe the answer to these issues👍 By training with someone else you are more likely to train harder, be more consistent, and increase your motivation/enjoyment (it also adds a little bit of competition) 👀 - At L1 we offer personal training for 2 people as well as 1 to 1. All sessions will be tailored to your specific goals and training needs, but with the added benefit of saving a little bit of money and all the benefits mentioned above! ✅ - Current intro offer for new clients: 3 for 2 for 1 to 1 PT = £95 👌👌 3 for 2 for 2 to 1 PT = £105 😱 - For more information and to book a free consultation contact: 📧 alanburton@l1performance.com - #personaltraining #PT #leedsgym #leedspt #consistency #gym #training #fitness #wellbeing #partnertraining #instafit #fitfam #conditioning #strength #strengthtraining #weightlifting #powerlifting #control #functionalmovement #movement #resitancetraining #strengthandconditioning #sandc

Smart strength training doesn’t stop as you age. It actually becomes even more vital! • Some patients/clients can’t push directly overhead. No big deal, The landmine Press is an amazing modification for that! • Here Shelly is focusing on two things: keeping a neutral pelvic position with ribcage over pelvis, AND as she presses she is making sure she doesn’t hike up her shoulder blade • Loss of strength will happen as we age. It’s up to us to fight it, and stay as strong as we can, in a smart and effective way! • Shelly is a rockstar patient who does the work to get the results!
