A set of 10 x 183.5kg from nearly 2 weeks ago. Hoping to find myself back at this depth by the end of the week. Been rehabbing and managing my Patellar Tendinopathy big time this weekend. Just can't get ahead of myself and let my body do its thing to get over the injury. #5weeksout
This is just a basic bodybuilding day consisting of a lot of volume for back, shoulders and arms.
Finished with these farmers carries with 100kg plus the frames in each hand. There is definitely a technique to these which I clearly have not mastered. I almost fell over half way through this set.
Finished today's Back workout with Conventional Deadlifts! This style hits the lats nicely along with the hamstrings, glutes, upper back and builds a strong core 👌🏼💪🏼 And is perfect for burning some extra energy🔥to get me shredded! #keepgrinding
Clients "It hurts when I do this exercise"
Coach George "Then stop doing it".
A common theme clients present to a coach is a broad spectrum of issues, complaining of pain, range of motion, old injuries, tightness.
Quite common clients complain they can't do certain exercises just because! Then I come into the picture. What is your range of motion like, how much pain do you have during this exercise (sharp pain, dull ache, out of 10) any clicking, any tightness, posture.
Does the pain change after a little bit of mobility work, active or dynamic warmup, foam rolling. Yes or no. We use assessments to check if you have a weakness or tightness that we need to work on prior to bigger exercises such as squats or Bench.
Looking at it from another angle, STRESS creates a tight body, and stress causes INFLAMMATION in the joints which causes pain. Through nutrition and supplementation we reduce stress and Inflammation. However you will also get leaner and put on more muscle if we work on these aspects.

Third #RDL progression is a very simple hinge to wall. Once again this gives the #athlete proprioceptive feedback of where there hips are in space. As you may begin to see there's a pattern occurring in teaching these basic primal patterns and that is proprioceptive feedback. Most people who haven't played sport competitively or are junior athletes have poor spatial awareness, thus having tools like dowels/the wall is extremely helpful in developing motor patterns and coordination. .
