Training can take many forms. Some train the brain, some train the body, some train both.
My opinion: to learn any sport, you have to train the brain first, before you train the body. Learn the skill and the technical nuances first. This can sometimes provide enough physical stress for your body to adapt. Then focus on performance-enhancing strategies once the skill level needed is achieved. (Obviously there are no black and white answers for anything, so a pinch of salt is needed)
A long time ago I was introduced to Poi. Through college me and a few friends practiced almost every day until we started doing a few fire displays at parties etc. Was great fun although in this learning experience I did loose an eyebrow a couple of times.
The last time I picked these up was when we did a 12-hour spinathon at my first gym job. I did a 15 min set in between a class to break up the day.
Fast forward 8 years and a bit rusty but the basics are still there. It’s incredible how the brain just stores all those movements to the back of the filing cabinet. The saying “just like riding a bike” is so true. HOWEVER, there is one key thing to remember when getting back into any form of training. Especially physical.
Even though you might remember the movements your body is not conditioned in the same way it used to be. Go slow, reduce volume and let the body adapt. As frustrating as it might be to think “I used to hit harder, run faster or go for longer than this”. Don’t fall into the trap of too much too soon.

Want to know how we travelled from Rome to Venice to Pisa and Florence to the Amalfi Coast, including Pompeii and even climbed Mt Vesuvius and snorkelled at the Blue Grotto- a total of 12 days for €350 each (including flight/transport/accommodation)?!?! Finally putting all 40+ countries to paper ❤❤
Well, that's it. Last session done and dusted. On compairing biceps with my lovely weapon of a wife @lizza_marie, her guns showed me up. Which is all good till she said 'i don't even train biceps'....then shit got real...
I don't like being negative with training tips but this is one I see far too often....
People doing movements that require a solid torso; such as compound lifts, and checking their form in the mirror next to them.
Your spine runs from the base of your skull all the way down to your hips and when you do heavy lifts such as a squat your whole spine must be in a stable position to take the load without compromising itself incase of injury.
So as soon as you turn your head the spine slightly twists and muscles keeping it stable relax, opening up a whole load of potential problems.
So if you are ever worried about your form, just ask someone to check it for you. It's much safer and a second pair of eyes to improve form might be that next step to improving your overall lifting ability.
Sled drags are great for VMO development. Keep your body low and push yourself back slowly, focussing on pushing leg after leg. Keep low! Try this at the end of your leg training. Do 2-5 sets of 20-30m rest 60-120sec depending on your goal.
