Trained legs - they are progressing along nicely felt strong tonight, my biggest goal for 2017 is to put in a Lot of leg work. It was 8.30pm and I was just gonna skip the gym tonight, but then I thought of the never skip leg day memes and I don't want to be no part of that 🚫 😂 🏋🏻

Day 4 of the hardcore trainer and today's session was lower back and hamstrings. The session I did was: - deadlifts 3 x 10 reps - straight leg deadlifts 3 X 10 reps - seated hamstring curl 5 X 10 reps (drop sets) - cable straight leg deadlifts 3 X 10 reps I am a little annoyed at today's session as I didn't feel all that strong and I managed to pull my hamstring slightly! I started with deadlifts and managed 100kg for my sets of 10. I might have been able to lift a bit heavier but I think my form would have broken down. I then went on to straight leg deadlifts and did two sets ok and just before my third set I was practicing the movement without any weight so squeezed my gluteus and hamstrings and then it pulled!? It felt like I had cramp in it so I stopped the deadlifts and moved to hamstring curls. I stayed light and just focussed on squeezing the muscle instead. I then finished off with these 👆🏻cable straight leg deadlifts. I haven't done them before so had to play around with the form a bit. The first few reps I pull more with my back than hamstrings but the last few hit them well. Food has been good again today and I did both cardios on the step machine at work. #harcoretrainer2#kagedmuscle#kagedmusclesupps#kagedkreations#blog#fitnessjourney#fitfam#fitspo#inspiration#motivation#gym#weighttraining#abs#training#exercise#fitness#dailyblog#transformation#instafit#facefear#strength#dtpextreme#dtp#hamstrings#deadlifts
#KineticHygiene - Ankle part 3 - The Big Toe. This is an often overlooked area when it comes to lower extremity injuries - especially in those who run, jump and change direction. Plus this helpful information comes from a student of PT, which makes me happy. ••• #Repost @simplestrengthphysio . Special guest appearance from my clinical student Amanda (@alynpaquin) who is showing the big toe some love for this #KineticHygiene series and getting some reps on the social medias. She does a great job of explaining the WHY and HOW 👇🏼 _____________________________________________ Looking ALL the way down the kinetic chain... ••• The big toe, although small when compared to the hip or knee, has an important role that influences our overall functional mobility. The big toe’s main function is to provide MOBILITY. Pain, instability, or hypo mobility (decreased mobility) at the 1st big toe joint (MTP joint) can have an impact on how we walk, run, lunge, jump, squat...etc. . The 1st metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP) is comprised of the 1st metatarsal and base of the proximal phalanx and mainly produces the movements of plantarflexion & dorsiflexion. This joint is surprisingly complex especially when it comes to its main function of hallux dorsiflexion during the push-off phase of gait. (for any nerds out there article at bottom goes into greater detail of great toe anatomy). ••• Key Takeaway: Without getting into the nitty gritty anatomy, let’s appreciate this: we need roughly 65-75 degrees of great toe MTP dorsiflexion during gait and upwards of 90 degrees for running! . When we don't have enough range at the big toe, the kinetic chain will steal it from other areas. This causes abnormal forces to be absorbed up the chain and can lead to injury. ••• What can we do about it? . In the video above, I am demonstrating a very simple and effective way to perform a self mobilization of the big toe. . 1)Slightly pull the bone right above the “knuckle” of your big toe as to separate the joint. 2)Gently glide the bone upwards as if directing it towards the top side of your foot (dorsal glide) x10 3)Range the big toe into its new range for x10 reps ••• Questions, let us know 👇.
We all have ups and downs - but searching within ourselves for that positive spirit, even on the harder days, propels us forward and attracts others to help us along the way. Find that positive spirit we all have somewhere inside us 🌟
Most of us look in the mirror and KNOW there's more there. We have more we can give, more we can do, and more we can accomplish. I can honestly say @team_atrain online client @r_banh has truly come to realize his full potential - and THAT is why he craves more more MORE! Over the past few weeks, Robert has not only realized how far he's truly come, but where he can go from here! I have no doubt he's going to continue to make HUGE changes in the weeks ahead. Robert, that smile is going to keep getting bigger so be proud of all you've done so far! #teamatrain _____________________ www.teamatrain.com
