🥊 HOW TO WEAR WRIST WRAPS 🥊 Get ready for the easiest change of ya life. I often see beginner lifters making a huge mistake costing them comfort, health, and big kgs on the bench press. 〰️ The wrist wrap does not equal a bracelet! I REPEAT! The wrist wrap is not a bracelet 😝. The purpose of wearing a wrist wrap is to support your wrist, which means you need to actually cover the wrist joint. Wrapping below the joint doesn’t offer much in terms of support. Wrap on the heel of your hand and secure around the wrist joint to limit all wrist mobility. This will help you keep a stacked wrist and prevent excessive wrist flexion during heavy lifts. 〰️ Proper bench positioning is barbell over wrist over forearm, and your wrist wrap is there to support that strong position. - Wrist wraps are from @strongstrongsupply

Here’s a squat day warm-up idea! On Stronger by the Day we program a weekly warm-up that give lifters ideas on how to raise their heart rate, increase blood flow, activate key muscle groups and mobilize so you’re ready to lift. Let me know if you try this one: 〰️ 1️⃣ Empty barbell warmup. Run through good mornings, bb row, overhead press, and squats with an empty bar or a PVC pipe. 〰️ 2️⃣ Monster Walks: 3x12/ side 〰️ 3️⃣ Dead bugs: 3x8/side 〰️ 4️⃣ Cossack Squat 3x10/side 〰️ 5️⃣ Runners Lunge 2x8/side ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ THEN you’re on the barbell. Stuck on warm-up ideas and want more like this one? Join Stronger by the day, only $8/mo!

⛓HOW TO WEAR LIFTING STRAPS⛓ This tutorial is for newer lifters who are confused about lifting straps altogether. Here are the steps: 1️⃣ Put the straps on like a bracelet, just below the wrist joint. These straps are from @strongstrongsupply for $12 btw 😝 2️⃣ Grab the remaining hanging material. 3️⃣ Pull the strap lower on the hand. 4️⃣ Wrap the hanging lateral under and over the barbell. 5️⃣ Hold that wrap and tighten with the hand. 〰️ Straps will help lifters lift more intensely by removing grip as a limiting factor. Your hands are weaker than your posterior chain, so it makes sense to use some assistance in training. 〰️ Sure I know… you’re Billy Badass, you don’t need straps. BUT HAVE YOU EVER been programmed 4x12 heavy barbell deadlift variations? Or really pushed your DB Rows to where you needed straps. Straps will come in handy when you’re pushing volume for a lot of movements that require you to hang on to bars and implements (like a heavy back day workout).

TRY THIS PUSH UP DROP SET: Push Up Progression (2 rounds) 1️⃣ AMRAP x feet elevated 2️⃣ AMRAP x flat 3️⃣ AMRAP x hands elevated (or from the knee) Go Nonstop through the progression (no rest until the full set is done), rest 60-120s rest between rounds - 🔑🔑Tips: 🔑🔑 Squeeze your core and butt so that you’re not cheating any of these reps, because once you’re gassed and can’t do another rep, you go straight into a drop set, with standard push ups. - Click the link in my bio for a video with even more tips for a full chest workout. - Shorts are @reebok top is @Fabletics

🧳 🏝 TRAVELING + STAYING ON TRACK 🏝 🧳 Getting ready for Hawaii! So a week or more traveling running around with limited luggage (per usual). Thankfully, my absolute favorite thing right now is @CorePower which has been a lifesaver in getting the protein I need to and stay on track with my goals. The @CorePower ELITE line has 42g of protein, and perfect for those unpredictable days on the road. Click the link in my bio to shop @CorePower on Amazon!

Throwback YellowHead Meg Incoming 👇👇 😱The deadlift isn’t *just* a back exercise!😱 👉 Despite my name, deadlifts are my favorite lift. 〰️ Deadlifts are the single best bang-for-your-buck builder of both strength and muscle… yet I regularly see people making common, preventable mistakes. 〰️ ✅Yes, the deadlift is a hip hinge.✅ 🚫No, it isn’t *only* a hip hinge.🚫 〰️ 🤷🏼‍♀️What’s the problem? Many beginners rely too much on their backs, under-utilize their legs, and turn their regular deadlift into a near-stiff legged deadlift variation.🤦🏼‍♀️ 〰️ 📞💪Dial in your setup to this full-body movement with these tips:💪📞 〰️ 1️⃣ Set up in your start position with your back straight, lats engaged, gaze neutral, and your shoulder blades over the barbell. 〰️ 2️⃣ You should have a slight bend in your knees, but not as deep as the bottom of your squat. 〰️ 3️⃣ Begin your pull by driving your feet through the floor, extending your knees, and pushing your hips forward to lock out the repetition. Lower the weight with control in the same bar path, and repeat! 〰️ 👉🏻Join My Program Stronger by the Day fo only $8/month? Check out the link in my bio ---> @megsquats👈🏻
