Trainer Tip Tuesday. The reason that we don't like to just write up workouts and email them to people without seeing them first are things like this: if you sit in a desk all day your shoulders are internally rotated. That means that the muscles on the front (pecs, anterior delts) are super-tight, and the muscles in the back of your shoulders and upper back are dormant. This also brings your neck forward and puts pressure on the shoulders and upper spine.
The wall slides and their regression (easier version) on the floor are a great way to help pull you back into place at the start of the workout. Keep the spine: tailbone, lower back, upper back, and head against the wall. try to push the elbows and fingers in the wall as you slide up and down slowly. Don't let your lower back pop off. DON'T WORK INTO PAIN. If you can, get your wrists on the wall and see how much of a range of motion you can get for 30-60 seconds before you work out to go from #vulture to #viking#posture . #resultsperiod#train#harder#smarter
I'm a big believer in investing in the best technical/fit for purpose equipment that I can afford but I still reckon the two most important things for being a successful hunter are having high motivation levels, and just being out there doing it. There's simply no substitute for time spent in the bush. You can have all the best gear that there is but if you are not motivated and you are not out there hunting it's just not going to happen. Clothing and equipment that helps you to stay motivated and to stay out there longer really comes into its own in tough conditions, and for extended periods of time. If your feet are comfortable and dry you'll walk longer and further. If you manage your body temperature and comfort using a good layering system you'll stay motivated and concentrate better/for longer. If you have a good shelter system you'll still go and stay longer when the weather is shit. If you sleep warm and comfortable you'll recharge the body and mind getting up early to do it all again tomorrow. Good optics will find the bedded deer that you wouldn't have seen with your entry level binoculars. And so on and so on. What I'm getting at is the flash gear doesn't really get you the deer but it supports the two main things that do. Get out there! #hunter#yes_i_am_a_hunter_gear#gear#equipment#technical_equipment#motivation#support#bush_time#out_there#harder#longer#further#smarter#comfort#fuel#recharge#body#mind#hunting#hunt#huntmeateat#free_range_food#wilderness#swazi#badlands#vortex#yes_i_am_a_hunter#solohunter#nzhunterinaustralia @badlandspacks @vortexoptics #not_sponsored_comment
