On tonight's menu; heavy squats. 5x5 at 90% of my 1RM (no pics) sorry. Then, these beasties. Snatch grip RDLs. Why you ask? Good question. The snatch-grip deadlift can pack size onto your traps, upper back, hamstrings, and glutes. The snatch-grip deadlift can carry over to increased strength off the floor with conventional deads. It works as a deficit pull because it forces you to start lower, so you can get all the benefit of deficit work while standing on solid ground. All this and it will like all pulls, increase grip strength. #strengthandconditioning#deadlift#variation challengeOn tonight's menu; heavy squats. 5x5 at 90% of my 1RM (no pics) sorry.

Rope climbs are an awesome way to build UE strength as well as grip strength required to perform a pull-up.
👇🏻 These can easily be modified as shown in the video to begin with both feet on the ground while pulling yourself up hand over hand until you build the pre-requisite strength to perform a full blown pull-up.
You can then progress to beginning in the lying position instead of seated.
This movement will aid in developing the upper back and scapular stabilizers as those lats and grip strength which are all part of the foundation to performing a proper pull-up! #athlete#strength#strengthtraining#strengthandconditioning#physicaltherapy#physiotherapy#pullups#fitness#fit#fitfam
Sadly had to make a decision and have brought Laois Intermediate Camogie to a close! ☹ Apologies, half the team are missing from the photo as I couldn't find the team photo 😁 Enjoyable year with the girls to say the least, where we came out of all odds to win the Leinster title!
I'll miss the coaching and I'll miss the early Sunday mornings! I'm putting coaching to the side now and it was a great way to finish coaching with this team - and hopefully I'll find a pathway back into it in the future 🙂 #laoiscamogie#strengthandconditioning#imgoingtomissit#supporternow
I Love seeing the progress, the muscle growth & muscle definition of lifting! It takes time to build muscle. It takes patience, consistency, self belief, lifting weights...nutrition built to your body and drive to push yourself. When I started this journey 6 years ago I couldn’t do 1 push up! So I was not born like this! Anyone can do it if you want it! A personal trainer can give you a plan to follow but you have to want it for yourself. Find what motivates you... find what keeps you focused to your health goals and post it or have what your goal is visual, so your reminder of what your working towards. If that won’t work for you.. have someone to hold you accountable. #lift#muscle#gains#progress#time#persistence#nutrition#health#snapnation#peakperformancehealthandfitness#personaltrainerhuntsville#strengthandconditioning#strengthcoach @snapmuskoka @snapfitness @vspink @lululemon @nike @niki.shoes @underarmour @gnccanada @popeyessupplements @precisionnutrition

Today’s leg day was pretty good, after an extended warm up my squats grooved well and then I hit some front squats. Next on my list of exercises was this guy, I’d never done these before but had recently read about them and seen them done. The kickstand protocol adapted to the hex bar I’ve found is a great way to unilaterally hit the legs. You can do this in a dead stop method like I do here (which I prefer) or stop your decent just short of the ground to keep constant tension. This guy also takes longer than normal sets so the grip work, upper back, and lower back get fired as well. A must try if you ask me and a good overload technique. And I love learning new things, if you aren’t learning or aren’t willing to learn have already set yourself behind with no hope of getting better! @sledgestrong #legs#squats#kickstandprotocol#weighttraining#strengthandconditioning#strong#experimentingwithexercises#gym#gymlife#fitness#pufftobuff
Won my last fight vs. Isiah Thomas (USA) easily. Got this opportunity to be a substitute fighter for the Ali trophy tournament as an excuse after I got robbed in Poland for the IBF world title eliminator... Wore black velour trunks because of the grief and loss of one of our youngest fighters who was murdered just one day after my coach got shot in the knee by unknowns. Your greatest tests will be your greatest TESTimonies ⚔️ Follow 👉🏼 @noelgevor to follow the journey to Boxing World Champion 🏆
Comment “🥇” if you agree that your biggest challenges make you stronger!!
Bianca knows that she cant work out every single day. Bianca also knows that she should foam roll and stretch on her off days. Bianca knows this helps her train like a beast when the time comes. Well done, Bianca.
YES ➡️ The Jefferson Curl ✅
📝This movement can be safe for nearly everyone. Don't panic!! Your back will not explode... and for the extension intolerant or stiff back, this might just be what you need.
🏋🏽The Jefferson Curl is not to be done with heavy weight. Here I am using it to create some lumbar flexion and to really feel my deep abdominals and trunk flexors. I am exhaling as I get to the bottom of the lift and trying to fully empty my lungs by using my abs and folding my trunk.
🙋🏽♂️Spinal flexion coupled with breathing can be an effective technique to decrease neurological tone in the spinal extensors as well. This is common with some athletes who have extension intolerant backs.
🔥There is some research showing that repeated spinal flexion can be problematic. I don’t think repeated movement of any kind is a good thing. We need variety. However, if you’re of the school of thought where you don’t do any crunches or spinal flexion, this might be a missing piece in your back puzzle.
⚠️Start with a cat camel first and get used to this flexion movement before you load it. This is the next step.
