The first video is of the squat cable rows. You see a lot of people doing these in fail YouTube videos. Because, they look like they are humping the air, lol. But, it is a great way to strengthen your legs and upper body. So, if you have little time to be in the gym. Full body exercises are awesome and burn way more calories than isolation exercises can. Just use a weight that you can control. One of my friends and co workers have pointed one that I am all about trying to get the technique down. Which is true. But, when it comes down to it. Sometimes you have to not think about it and just do it. The body can adapt. After learning a pattern it can be programmed to do it automatically. My best advice to anyone. Is learn the technique first and then add weight or speed. But, don't starting humping the air ! When it comes to the mens physique competition I need to get the techniques down and specifically the transitions. My weight has slowly been going up. So, I should get to 200 soon and then I will be able to competition. Hopefully I won't forget the transitions like this, lol! Stay strong and enjoy life!! #legionofboom#nasmcpt#fullbodyworkout#physique#npc#duespaid#fitphamily#fitgeek#bulking#dragonballz#technique#teambruno
Lunges are one of the top exercises we see performed incorrectly by our newer athletes - whether or not they have weight trained before.
. @sydney.daviss here, a soccer athlete from Preston, is doing a fantastic job with a side angle of a perfect Lunge.
Alignment - knee should be directly above the front part of the heel. This will ensure that when you push through your heel, it will be an appropriate mix of quadriceps, hamstring, and Glute activation.
Balance- front foot flat on the ground, with the pressure on the mid foot/front of the heel. Too many athletes let their weight shift forward over their toes in a Lunge. That’s both weaker AND more damage on the knee
Suspension- the back knee is just off the ground... barely. That makes sure she’s getting a full Range of Motion and stretching her hips fully. Keeping the knee off the ground protects the knee and keeps your leg muscles doing the work, not resting because you’re on the ground.
Posture- posture should be tall and erect. If a bar is on your back or weights at your sides, torso should be straight up or slightly inclined forward. If it’s a front rack position (as pictured), torso should be slightly back to keep the weight above the hips and center of gravity, but not so much of a backwards lean the low back is being hyperextended.
