🖼💪🏽 We are designed to use our musculature to impose our will, as it is subject to God’s Will, on the world. Like Adam in the garden of Eden, God designed us so that we could freely use our wills towards His good purposes (Philippians 2:13) He even gifted us “gardens” to be wardens of. Whether it be your family, your work, playing with your kids, whatever it is that you are doing – seek to cultivate your own gardens towards what is good and godly. If you begin to think about the design of the human body in this light, strength will have a new meaning for you. 💪🏽🖼 ——- William McNeely, DAV USN RTSm®️ || 🌐understandingstrength.com🌐 || 📖 Look out for the upcoming book - ”Why You Should Exercise, Eat Healthy, and Die Anyway” (2019) 📖 || 🛡 STRONG Willed: Designed For a Physical Purpose (Book available on Amazon) (2014)🛡 . . . . . #understandingstrength#gethealthy#designed#garagegym#deadlifts#squats#intelligentdesign#personaltrainer#standards#humanbody#muscles#godisthecreator
#repost @strengthsensei1 ・・・ Structural balance is key for athletes and physique competitors alike. Any imbalance at the joint will negatively impact strength performance. In fact, if antagonists and agonists are out of balance, namely if one is too weak compared to the other, it will diminish the neural output. This is due to the activation of protective mechanisms. The body computes the instability at the joint and will shut down the agonists to prevent injury. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ We have seen this in many athletes. For example let's say someone is really good at pull ups, but isn't very good comparatively in high pull as strict presses. We've seen these people get stronger at high pulls and presses and then a few months later, without doing any pull ups for strength at all, they are somehow better at pull-ups! . How is this possible?? 🤔🤨🤔 . Strengthening those other movements put the shoulder in a better position to produce force 💪 . Crazy cool stuff! 😎😎😎 . Want to learn more?

Had our first official class of an 8 week Speed School tonight!! What a great turn out so far, looking forward to seeing how this grows over the next few months!! Already had a few asking about the Spring session... 🤙🏼🤙🏼 #speedkills#catchmeifyoucan#mechanics#flexibility#forceproduction#opportunity Q. How do I get faster? A. Run as fast as you freaking can! Along with Speed School a handful of these kids do the rest of their Strength and Conditioning with me.... I’m very excited to see the growth of this group over the next year... or three!! #nucleustraining#powerathlete Let me know if you’re interested in your High Schooler/Middle Schooler taking their Athleticism to the next level!?! #justgettingstarted#nucleustrainingcenter
I call these Johnny Bravo’s 😎 “Hey, Baby! Anybody ever tell you I have beautiful eyes?" AKA side-lying rear delta raises with a kettlebell. The kettlebell is a great option cause the mass of the bell being in front of your wrist doesn’t allow the moment arm to completely diminish and balance out at the top, which means there is still strategic resistance. Its heaviest where your stronger, lighter where your weaker (at your end range of contraction).

🏋Max Effort Lower Body Day🏋 Max Effort or Max Strength day is commonly a misunderstood term in our field. I am not a weightlifter or a pwoerlifter so I don't have to lift as much as I can. So i will try to explain very simple what a Max Effort day can be. There are 3 types of muscle contractions. Eccentric, Isometric and Concentric. Eccentric contractions are about force absorption and can be divided to fast and slow from tempo standpoint. Isometric contractions happen when you apply force at a certain position about there is no movement (at least none that you can see with naked eye). And concentric contractions are about force production. So for me this day which early in the year at least for the sport of athletics was about a more Isometric and Eccentric Max Effort day and consisted of a Trapbar Deadlift with an isometric hold on the lowering part of the lift. Then a RFE Split squat with an iso hold at the bottom. Nordic Curls and a GHR Hamstring Hold.
