Playing around with some power cleans last week. Worked up to this relatively easy single at 130kg. Was supposed to test a 1RM full clean but my back has been playing up a little over the last few weeks so didn’t want to drop under a heavy bar. Excited to start into a new block of training with @performancetherapyireland tomorrow 💪🏻
#Newgoals Soooooo, after an extended absence from the gram I'm back(ish 😂)! What was essentially a planned mini break from daily posts turned into an extended break for no other reason than I was enjoying my summer and just decided to forget about social media for a while (sorry guys 🙈)! During this time I was still training away but found myself becoming bored/unmotivated. I decided it was time to refocus and change things up. So for the last few weeks I have completely changed my focus from bodybuilding , to improving my overall athletic performance. During this time I have started working with the awesome guys at @performancetherapyireland and I am absolutely loving the shift in focus! Here was a clip from some baseline testing before starting an 8 week training block. #newfocus#letsgo#Repost @performancetherapyireland (@get_repost)

⚡️⚡️How to make exercises more Quad dominant ⚡️⚡️... The primary function of the Quads is knee extension. This means that if you increase the range of motion about the knee you can increase the time under tension of the quads. Furthermore, during multi-joint movements if you focus on initiating the concentric portion of the movement with extending the knee, and the eccentric portion of the movement with knee flexion ( as opposed to hip extension and flexion), you can increase the work completed by the quads! Here I have adapted a kick back machine into a quad /knee extension dominant leg press! I am focusing on pushing my foot up and extending the knee instead of pushing my foot away from me, and then making sure I break at the knee before the hip on the return movement! #skulpture#skulpturetips#legday#training
