The Monday Morning Quarterback. This doesn't just exist in football. It exists everywhere. Training hard and grinding only to hear someone telling you that squats will hurt your knees while they are quarter repping a leg press. That keto has been proven to be an inferior weight loss strategy while they are destroying a Wendy's triple. Or telling you running that much will beat you up, from the comfort of their recumbent bike. Make no mistake, technique is paramount, but all to often people look upon hard work, and they equate it to danger. Squatting doesn't injure you, squatting the way you are squatting injures you. Athletics are slightly harder then playing Madden on expert level. Find a quality gym, good training partners, educated/certified/experienced trainers and coaches, find a passion. Train hard and train smart. All other criticism take with a grain of salt. Take solace in the fact you're willing to make a change, set and execute a goal and not settle for the status quo. Take comfort in your disapline and work ethic.

I ❤️ side-lying footwork on #reformer . Works both abductors (top leg) and adductors (bottom leg 🦵in one setting. Stack the hips properly so pelvis is neutral throughout then obliques and many other things work hard as well. I show only a few reps per move; but I like to do and teach 10 reps each, 3 sets of each, switch between parallel and lateral leg positions with bottom leg lift/lower then circle ⭕️. I especially like to put both top and bottom legs on 🔥 by adding the open and close both legs at the end of the series 😉
If you find making up workouts, hitting double sessions, training off days, and doing what is needed to achieve the goals you've put ahead of yourself as punishment...Then cousin it's going to be a long , miserable road.
Change your mindset.
Find some joy in the gym. What you appreciate, appreciates.
Basic Benching Cues that work for beginners to advanced and everyone in between.
If your goal is geared benching or hypertrophy these cues may bend... Keep your feet wide and under you. This will create a strong base and allow you to utilize the hip drive that causes initial momentum off the chest while still keeping your glutes on the bench itself.
Pack your shoulders by pinching your shoulder blades together and tucking them into your back pockets. This in conjunction with bridging which will create a nice tight arch will not only keep you tighter for the lift but will cut down your range of motion. Packing the shoulders is not only a performance measure but also an injury deterant.
Take the widest grip your shoulders can handle to maximize leverage and reduce range of motion. Take your time moving out. You have nothing but time.
If you desire to press more, you must press more. And not just barbell benching. Incline, Board Press, Overhead Press, Swiss Bar, etc, will all improve your pressing. Time spent between 60% and 70% will perfect your technique. If competitive always pause the first rep as you'll always be required to in competition. Also pause all down sets to work technique when tired.
Row and row heavy. Strong lats are the foundation to press heavy and confidently. Tons of rear delt work for shoulder health.
Train your triceps 3x more than you are now. Once the stability from your lats allows the hip drive to propel your bench upwards a strong set of tris are what will propel you through sticking points. Don't sleep on the role grip also has in the bench. Don't ignore it.
Super Suicides. As one finishes their session with a weighted prowler and ruck for 150 yards down and back, 3 others sprint suicides. The picture was taken at the baseline. The target line is the prowler. The distance changes every second as the prowler is pushed away and eventually brought back. Keep it new, keep it fun.

Oh Summer! How we love ya!😘Some of my favorite moments happened this summer during our annual convention in Anaheim. Met so many amazing individuals both at the convention and outside of it. And I especially loved winding down poolside with a drink🍹in hand! What's you favorite summer memory?
#OTD 1911, President William Howard Taft traveled to Manassas, Virginia, for a jubilee event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first Battle of Bull Run, the first major battle of the Civil War.
President Taft’s speech focused on the importance of reconciliation and his hopes for lasting peace. “Who is in a better position to appreciate the value of peace than those who have been through the inferno of war?” he asked the cheering veterans.
The Bull Run event was the first major reunion for the 50th anniversary of the Civil War and was followed two years later by a much larger reunion at Gettysburg. It also sparked the public’s interest in preserving the land where the battle had been fought, which at that time was still privately owned.
