OMG 😱😱 You just HAVE to watch this!
Just unbelievable stuff 😎😎
Do you think this older generation with Connors, Lendl, Borg, Johnny Mac and so on was better than todays?

With six humans onboard, the International Space Station (@iss) was spotted in Washington, DC on Nov. 29 in this twenty-second exposure over the Washington National Cathedral.
Did you know that the space station is the third brightest object in the night sky? You can find out when it’s passing over your area by visiting SpotTheStation.nasa.gov.
The microgravity laboratory orbits our planet at 17,500 mph and is home to important science and research that will not only benefit life here on Earth, but will help us venture deeper into the solar system than ever before.

FMA Performance Tuesday Tune Up -- Back to the Wall Shoulder Flexion Fixes
Click the link in our bio for the full link!
For this week's Tuesday Tune Up we will be looking at a few ways to clean up last weeks back to the wall shoulder flexion. This is a great drill to test on and work on overhead mobility. If you cannot get your thumbs to the wall even after these tips I would try working on your overhead mobility before throwing any big weights over your head!
When performing this drill we can tell a lot about how it is going to end up from the position you start in.
If you have shoulders that tend to round forward and there is a gap between your shoulders and the wall. Think about rolling your shoulders back towards the wall as you raise your arms
If you tend to have a very upright "military-like" posture you will want to think about reaching towards the wall in front of you as your hands go over your head. This will allow your shoulder blades to properly upwardly rotate and get your arms over head
Lastly, if you are someone with very strong lats and your shoulders therefore slope downward pretty dramatically then you should think about gently shrugging as you bring your arms over your head!
FYI, there's a positive correlation between overhead press strength and bench press progression, for my bench dudes and dudettes out there 🤟 (Not usually the other way around though). Also, overhead mobility is pretty important, wouldn't you agree? A light 205x8 today to Kickstart my shoulder workout!
@itskruoff showing the finish in the overhead position. This is most commonly noticed during a press, strict or push. Be sure to flex your legs, glutes, and abs to keep a tight midline. Head and neck finish in a neutral position. Arms fully extended and inline with the body. This will give you a much stronger overhead position and you should feel more stable with weight overhead.
Check your positions while warming up and make sure to keep good form while increasing weight.
Here’s and example of a “Pause at the knee Deadlift”. Variations of this technique can be used to develop strength in a sticking point of a particular exercise. In this case @joz_g requires an improvement in strength and core stability whilst executing the deadlift past the knees.
The extended time under tension that the pause lift requires allows her body to find its strongest position and as she spends time in this position her body will become more efficient and stronger particularly passed the knees. All in all her body is forced to learn better movement patterns to improve her overall technique with the conventional deadlift.
Agachar é Funcional.
Todo mundo, em algum momento do dia, vai agachar para executar alguma atividade.
Então não vem com essa de que você “não pode agachar”.
O que faz diferença no processo é garantir que o movimento seja executado o mais próximo possível do excelente.
Garantindo equilíbrio nas forças necessárias à boa execução, mobilidade para movimentos amplos e limpos das articulações, consciência dos comandos necessários para a realização do movimento. .
No vídeo, @cynthia.asfora, que possui um desvio significativo na estrutura vertebral, treinando técnica durante a sessão de membros inferiores e agachando com domínio e muita amplitude. .
A solução não é extinguir o movimento da sua rotina. A solução está em resolver as limitações que te impedem de agachar com qualidade.
Repara aí quantas vezes tu ainda vai agachar hoje e depois decide se é importante ou não dominar este movimento.
