Blade, Head, and Memes: OHP:LOCK OUT Full ROM Limited ROM Vertical -Incline Torso Elevated Torso Depressed Scapula Scapula Un-SHRUGGeD SHRUGGeD [STRICT OHP: BACK VIEW LOCK-OUT🔒] . For the longest time, we were told to keep our shoulders down and back or to put them in our back pockets. This was thought to promote "scapular stability". And while that is great for the bench press, pull up, or row, it's not a good cue for overhead movements.🏋️‍♀️ . The goal with overhead exercises is scapular mobility, and most notably, upward rotation. The shoulder blade should move up and around the ribcage as you press overhead. This is a big component of having full shoulder girdle ROM. . If you keep them down and back, you create a smaller space for your rotator cuff tendons to pass through and increase risk of impingememt.😣 You may also end up compensating and leaning into the low back to balance the weight overhead, which could lead to irritation there. Instead, take a look at these instructions from my good friend @fitness_iq on how to properly overhead press and save yourself some pain.⤵️⤵️⤵️ . For the strict over-head press lock-out🔒 keep the glutes flexed, core engaged, aka stacked joints, and once you have locked out your elbows and the bar is over your mid-foot finish the movement by shrugging the load towards the ceiling. This way you're going through that full range of motion✅ and getting full scapular upward rotation by utilizing those upper back muscles to your advantage. . There can also be mobility restrictions such as lack of shoulder joint mobility- tight lats that can effect if you're able to go through FULL ROM of the movement, and at that point you would have to address those issues in order to get FULL ROM.

TRAINING IN SEASON VS OFF SEASON I spent most of my day today writing all about stress management in prehab so this awesome post by @simone_baseball_performance seemed appropriate to share tonight. . The chart above was put together by the late 🍁Canadian Sprint Coach Charlie Francis. It shows different movements and their varying degree of CNS (Central Nervous System) demand. . ❓What does this chart mean for YOU❓ . 💥You only have so much energy you can expend. When you’re in-season you want most of that energy used on the field playing your sport. This chart is a great self check for you guys to see the varying demand each movement places on your CNS. . ⚾️For example, if you’re playing three to four games per week, it’s safe to say you’re sprinting at maximal intensity, throwing a baseball as hard as possible, and swinging a bat near maximal intensity in each game. You NEED to account for this CNS stress especially due to the fact that all of those movements are highly taxing on your nervous system. . 💪To account for this CNS stress and to maximize on-field outputs I believe your in-season training should refrain from any sprinting or explosive power movements. Looking back on my early playing career, I can’t believe all the sprinting, jumping, and heavy squats I was doing in-season. If only I knew then, what I know now regarding CNS demand of various movements, my on-field play would have been much better. - 🏋🏻Exercises that you should reduce in-season due to high CNS stress . ❌Sprinting (Outside of playing in games) ❌Vertical and Horizontal Jumping ❌High Volume Medicine Ball Throws ❌Heavy Squats ❌Heavy Deadlifts ❌High Volume-Intensive Plyos ❌Cleans, Snatches, Clean and Jerk . 🏋🏻Exercises that you should include in your in-season training due to their low demand on the CNS . ✅Supplementary Pull (Chest Supported Rows, 1-Arm DB Row etc.) ✅Supplementary Push (Push-Up Variations, Landmine Press Variations) ✅Sled Drags-Sled Pushes ✅Step Up Variations ✅Upper Back Work (BPA’S, Banded Face Pulls, Y,T,W etc.) ✅Low Intensity Core Stability Variations (Pallof Variations etc.) .

Gym, Memes, and Struggle: SQUAT DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH A HIGH ELBOW RACK POSITION? Latissimus Dorsi Levator Scapulae Serratus Posterior A Superior If you struggle to get your elbows up into a good position for your front squats & cleans, it may be due to stiffness in your lat muscles (the big darker red muscles shown bottom left) 👆🏼 . One of my favorite band assisted stretches to help mobilize into a good position is the topic of today's post. Grab a band with your palm facing the sky. Twist into the position shown & drive your elbow up as the band helps pull your hand down behind you back. You can also use your opposite free hand to push into a greater stretch (felt in your upper lateral back & the underside of your arm). Hold for 10 seconds & try 5 before re-checking your rack position to see if this is the right mobility tool for your body ✅ . KEYS TO PERFORM CORRECTLY👇🏼 1️⃣Drive your elbows straight forward (don't let it kick out to the side)✅ 2️⃣Keep your core braced (this will keep your back from hyper extending (which I could have done a little better job of in this video)✅ 3️⃣Keep your hand facing the sky. This allows you to mobilize in a position similar to your end goal (improving your front rack) ___________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

Clothes, Facebook, and Gym: AGE: 21 DORIAN YATES HOW DO BUILD A WIDE BACK? IG: @LEGIONS PRODUCTION AGE: 30 🔥😳HOW DO I BUILD A WIDE BACK? Founder 👉: @king_khieu. Before we begin this, I want to be clear on several things. For building a well developed back, the heavy core movements such as deadlifts, barbell rows and chin-pull ups are the fundamentals. The compound movements are crucial for building a strong back and core foundation. Use cable exercises and machines to chisel and define your back afterward. But never neglect the core movements. Building width requires consistency and hard work. Again, focus on core movements first and define after. Here are some variation, movements and tips which are great if you want to build a wider back. 1 - Weighted pull ups and chin ups if you can. 2 - Straight arm pushdowns. 3 - Wide grip exercises such as pull ups and pulldowns. 4 - Pre-exhaust training for the lats. 5 - Work your back twice a week. 6 - Focus on the squeeze and build-mind muscle connection. 7 - Deadlifts are key for width and thickness.

Climbing, Comfortable, and Kip: Pull Up Grip add jacob harden Full Grip False Grip Stronger grip Feel the lats more More rotator cuff activity More forearm endurance More secure Carryover for climbing WHICH GRIP IS BEST FOR PULL UPS? There are ✌ two predominant grips for performing pull ups...the thumb around full grip or the thumbless false grip. I got asked a lot about them in yesterday's pull up post so here is my opinion on the subject. . Both can offer benefits so use the one that is most comfortable for you and best suits your needs. How might they help you? . Full Grip: 🔸Grip is stronger with the thumb wrapped, which can lead to more total muscle activation. So use this if strength is your main limitation (most beginners or those doing weighted variations). 🔸Stronger grip leads to more rotator cuff activation so the full grip may offer some benefits to shoulder stability. 🔸Having the thumb wrapped is more secure, which can offer a comfort when new to the movement or if you kip. . False Grip: 🔹Use this grip if you are limited more by endurance than strength. The forearms tend to not burn out as quickly with the false grip. 🔹Many lifters (myself included) say that they feel the lats better with this grip. So it may help with a mind muscle connection. 🔹False grip will also have more carryover to climbing so that is a consideration if you are looking for specificity. . Which one do you like the most? Let me know below. I'm off to go film the pull up video that y'all asked for. It'll be up later tonight! MyodetoxOrlando Myodetox
