Hey Fit Soldiers!! You are the best, and getting better! How is that possible. We constantly strive to continue to be the best program you'll find hands down. Part of that is making sure that each and everyone of you is the best.
We can't run until we can walk, walk until we can crawl. Essentially everyday we would should be progressing at something large or small.
Same goes for exercises, but this is often forgotten. Far too many people progress their fitness program to what may feel like great feats but are really just injuries waiting to happen. Because you are not the best at the basics.
The problem may come from many places. Lack of knowledge, impatience, poor sources, peer pressure. Whatever the source, it's time to fix it. It's time to be best at the basics.
Before a proper push up comes core stabilization. A proper squat requires glute activation. The perfect row demands spinal alignment. These are just a few of the basics.
I will not allow progressions to be made without proper form technique and appropriate muscle activation. In other words I will not allow an injury on my watch.
I love finding poor form from our members. I love correcting them. Not in a demeaning way. NO. Rather it is going to make them BETTER. YOU will become better knowing you are not only working hard but working correctly.
There are a lot of exercises out there and even more names for a lot of the same stuff. There are even more variations for basic exercises. Lets take a push up. Wide, narrow, staggered, standard, stable, unstable, single leg, elevated, suspended...the list goes on. But at the very root of that exercise is not chest, arm shoulder strength. Negative. How bout core strength and stability.
Once that core is stable and strong so becomes the targeted muscles of the movement. So next time your in doing a squat it better not look like Pretzel Pete above!
Til next time!
