I recently fell in love with awesome tools like parallettes, rings and bars! They challenge your whole body in a way that is hard to find anywhere else and it feels amazing to control your body in all those different angles and positions! And all those moves that look sooooo easy, are tough like hell! Good stuff!
Oh, and thanks again and again to the great guys of @gmbfitness for their perfect and fun programming and teaching as usual! You rock!
I saw @olliefrostpt working on this super nice hip drill so had to give it a try.
Starting in a 90/90 poistion. Two yoga blocks was all that I managed today. One should not underestimate this type of mobility work, this is damn hard and really puts your hips to the test. Give it a go and let them hips work.
Já imaginou dar uma oficina de parkour em um colégio que possuiu a sua própria pista de Pentatlo Militar? ¿Alguna vez pensó en dar un taller de parkour en una escuela que poseía su propia pista de Pentatlón Militar?
Have you ever thought of giving a parkour workshop at a school that owned your own Military Pentathlon track?
Have you been following PKGen Coach Andy Pearson's technique videos? He's moving into slightly more comprehensive techniques now, so make sure you keep up to date by following @lonetraceur now.
018. Split foot diving Cat-Pass.
Today we're looking at trying to shuffle our feet back a little so we start further back. Now we're going to have to dive into the Cat-Pass a little and get used to that small impact on the arms.
Only shuffle back a little. Don't go so far that you can't do it. Small increments and small changes.
Remember, both sides as always!
This can be a little more impact on the shoulders and arms, so make sure you're ready for it! Take your time and work up to it.
You should be able to start with your hands OFF the box now. This is what we are working up to. This will help the trajectory and transfer of momentum from a run.
Regress to progress. Not all exercises are suitable for all people, all of the time. As humbling as it is, sometimes we have to regress an exercise or movement for a variety of reasons in order to strengthen neuromuscular control, to restrict compensatory movement patterns and to avoid overloading a specific area without building the load specifically over time amongst others. This morning I was targeting my deltoids with weights and found my left side was struggling big time on one particular exercise so I dropped the weight right down to only 1kg so I could really focus on the correct recruitment, timing and control of the muscle without my upper trapezius and neck muscles compensating. I understand that many of us are time short and when we take the time to exercise or work out we want to give it our everything. I could have done the exercise with a heavier weight but I recognise that I'm providing a new load to my deltoids and I need to slowly build up the load over time so my body can become adaptive and stronger, rather than struggling through with other muscles taking over and not getting the outcome in the long term that I'm looking for. I'm in this body for the long haul and I believe any training programs main priority should be on priming the body to be as capable and efficient as possible in order to do all of the human things we need to do. There's no point in pushing through when your body hasn't adapted to it, it only increases your chances of injury which will not get you closer to your goals. Whether those goals are to lift heavier, to nail a yoga posture, to run a marathon or to do a triathlon the key is to build up your tolerance and the load over time, so your body can adapt at a steady rate to the loads you are placing on it. All too often we go in too heavy which can end up actually slowing us down in the long run and make our goals seem even further away.
180Degree head motion. Good warm up for advanced 2arm handstand. Try with closed eyes.
