Here is one of my favorite intermediate drills to train #frontlever. The movement emphasizes hip extension, one of the most challenging aspects of any lever progression.📈 With the help of my trusty @rubberbanditz bands, I can focus on orientation and alignment, without sacrificing #timeundertension throughout the ROM (range of motion). ⏱ 💪🏻
Reintroducing #plyometrics into my inversion training. These explosive release #handstandpushups allow my muscles, joints and nervous system acclimate to the forces of the ‘jump’, before introducing more complex dynamic progressions (clap and superman #hspu).🤸🏻♂️🙌🏻
Happy #FathersDay to my old man, friends and followers! It’s time to thank Dad for all the family gains 💪🏻👪👨👨👧👧👨👧
My first set of overhead #dumbbellpress in over 5 years. 🙌🏻🏋🏻♂️ Like most trainees with a foundation built on #weightlifting, I was hesitant to immerse myself in weighttrainjng, assuming it would undermine my years of heavy lifting. Conversely, I now attribute the consistency of my upper strength to a heavy emphasis on #inversions and #calisthenics. 💪🏻
I don’t believe I’ve seen these before, but they seem like a natural progression from archer / typewriter #pushups. 🤔 Introducing #Spiderman #Typewriter Pushups 🕷💪🏻 Tag a friend who’s looking to up their #pushup game! 🆙
Finishing off today’s second workout with some sloppy #handstandpushups. 🥴💪🏻
Nothing but good times yesterday at the #underarmourperformancecenter. Thanks to @imvictoriabrown for the ass-kicking workout and @underarmour for the opportunity to test their new line of #uarush apparel!
The grind is real. In the wake of social media, the success of influencers can seem quick and cheap. In reality, my accomplishments in the fitness industry came from no small effort. The real work happens outside the spotlight, when others are asleep, and no one is looking. 👀 A big thank you to @no_apologies5 for sharing my story with @siadvance — along with all my clients, family and friends who’ve supported my efforts over the past decade.🙏🏻 Check out the link in my profile to read the full article! ☝🏻
If you asked me the most common mistake people make in the gym, I’d likely say ‘The assumption that progress is strictly linear.’ In so many words: most people are under the impression that your either making constant strides towards a goal, or your moving in the opposite direction. Two absolutes, with no in-between. As we learn and develop, progress looks more like a dance — two steps forward, one step back. Training #periodization is a common denominator in effective training programs for that very reason. It embraces the #physiological and #psychological demands of #exercise for a constructive exercise regimen. If you follow my feed, you can often see me incorporating drills of varied demand and intensity for the same movement. In this video, I’m working on a #planche regression that focuses on lumbar extension and flexion. By occasionally taking a step back and evaluating my progress objectively, I can avoid unnecessary compensations that can hinder my development further down the road!
