COMPOUND LIFTS 🍑 💪🏽🍑
Be sure to start your gym workout with the biggest lifts as they will be the most taxing! You want to save your energy to progress on the biggest movements first! .
Then move into your accessory work for your targeted area you want to work on that session 💪🏽
Try starting with your a squat/ deadlift variation then dumbbell & machine work .
Prioritise strength while using high reps towards the end for growth & aesthetics 🍑
Shake up the deadlift training. Adding the bands to pull the bar forward emphasises the hip drive in the movement, and forces a far stronger brace, great way to build stability in your deadlift stance if you feel unbalanced having a lot of weight to the front! Just make sure you climb slowly in weight, this is not one you want to be gungho with if you like your back!
Don't compare yourself to other people, compare yourself to where you were yesterday. Are you happier, stronger, leaner, fitter? THAT'S what you should focus on & celebrate. Others don't have your history, lifestyle, genetics, goals, capabilities, limitations etc so there's no point comparing yourself to them! Do YOU- not someone else 👊
Food for thought for arguably one of the most common topics going around in the field of Athletic Development.
= Contextual application (what patterns are being bestowed in the athlete's respective sport) must first be analysed. From there, implementation of what squat angle 'can' then be used. Furthermore, extended questions must constantly be discussed amongst coaches as to the effectiveness of such a movement whether it be beneficial or not as it pertains to that specific individual.
Question, discuss, apply, reassess.
