S u p e r F l o w 🕺🏽Heading back home to some waves in Wales so I’ve been playing with my movement and mobility to get my body up to the task (in the cold ocean) 🏄🏽♀️ . Double tap if you’d like to see this surf power flow in real time on YouTube? ▶️ Even if you don’t surf (but want a surfers body) you’ll love this 🔥 .

Getting some guidance on the back squat today with my good friend and coach Rhys @brooks_performance . . Teaching a squat is completely different to actually getting underneath the bar and pushing it up! Make sure your coach can deliver the goods as well as just talking about it! . . I'm in safe hands with my coach.... Can you say the same?? .
The rotator cuff muscles form a power quartet of muscles that surrounds the shoulder joint and drives rotational movement of the shoulder. Subscapularis is the last in this particular series of “Muscle of the Week” postings regarding the rotator cuff muscles. This muscles starts as a broad attachment on the inner surface (next to the ribs) of the shoulder blade or scapula, and eventually ends on a smaller raised area on the humerus (upper arm bone) near the shoulder joint. All of the rotator cuff muscles help to stabilize the shoulder joint, and this muscle in particular drives the rotation of the shoulder joint inward (medial / internal rotation). This muscle is quite prone to myofascial trigger points. Trigger points in this muscle result in a deep ache in the back of the shoulder and can refer pain down the back of the upper arm and an achiness on the back of the wrist. Main Action(s) of the Muscle: Rotation of the shoulder inwards (internal/medial rotation) Stabilizes the shoulder joint Strengthening Exercise: Resisted internal rotation – lay on floor or exercise bench on your side with arm closest to the bench bent to 90 degrees. Using this same arm/hand, hold weight and then bring weight from resting position up in arc towards the body. Return to resting position and repeat. (Video coming soon!) Stretching Exercise: Stand in doorway and place hands on top of door jam with palm against the wall. This stretch is initiated via bending the body forward and dropping the head between the arms. Continue this movement until a stretching sensation is felt in the back or sides of the shoulder.
What body do you want to have 15 years from now? • These days training to get an “attractive looking” body has become more important to most instead of a “well functioning & performing body. • Whilst everyone will always want to improve their physique to a certain extent, always try to prioritise what’s most important. • Bragging about lifting real heavy weights might seem cool but unless you’re in a strongman competition or at the Olympics...do you really need to be lifting that heavy? • And is lifting that heavy really making a positive affect in regards to your performance and how you function everyday? • Give me 1 scenario in which you’d need to squat 200kg? • Training for aesthetics is something that most people will experience, and I agree it’s important for confidence etc, but remember that in 40 years time....you probably won’t be as concerned about the size of your arms/legs. • You’ll be more worried about why you now need a walking stick because you neglected basic functions like keeping your hips and shoulders mobile. And you’ll be more worried about why your body aches all the time and you struggle to get in and out a car. • Performance should come 1st.....your ego should be way back in 4th place 👌🏻 • #mobility#strength#painfree#priorities#exercise#fitness#longevity#longterm#achesandpains#stayhealthy#newburyberkshire#personaltrainerberkshire#wellbeing#lifestyle#aesthetic#muscles#movement
