Are You Neglecting This Strength Movement

Are You Neglecting This Strength Movement

I pulled today’s article from the past! This piece was published back on June, 30th 2016. I felt that this was a great topic to address as it’s something I haven’t pointed out in quite some time.

Are you training your body in this particular plane motion? This particular plane of motion is neglected by many in their strength programs. What about you? Read and leave your feedback below in the comments.

Part of my job involves examining how people move and to also determine how they should be moving based on my experience as a coach and athlete. The reality is that more and more people in the general population are moving worse and worse in this day and age. This more than likely is because of the explosion of sitting jobs.

Today I’m not going to go down the same ‘ole path examining how poorly and immobilized people’s hips and shoulders are (ok maybe I will touch on this a little), but instead I’m going to look at another movement that many people neglect in their strength and conditioning training. Stay tuned my young Jedi of strength!

If you’re finding that you’re having some trouble with the barbell for back squats, or for front squats then you’re going to want to optimize your squat technique by adopting the goblet squat.

Mastering The Frontal Plane For Athleticism And Optimal Fitness

Mastering The Frontal Plane For Athleticism And Optimal Fitness

So the original publishing date of today’s article was on May 4th 2017. I wanted to pull this one out of the archives for today to stress the importance of training in the frontal plane of motion.

It’s very common for many programs to get caught up in training the same movement patterns which tend to be dominated by the sagittal plane of motion. Because of this I thought it was a good time to break out a good reminder for you with this article as to why you should be training in the frontal plane more often. Enjoy the read.

As strength coaches one thing that enables us to advance a trainee, or athlete is being able to identify weaknesses. It’s sort of counterintuitive because even though we’re called “strength coaches” in many cases the ability for us to investigate and identify weaknesses is what makes us successful. It’s sort of like we’re the Sherlock Holmes detectives of the iron game!

Can Motivation Be Coached Into An Athlete

Can Motivation Be Coached Into An Athlete

  1. Do you consider yourself to be a motivated person? 
  2. Do you think a coach or trainer can coach motivation into an athlete, or trainee? 
  3. What does it take to have motivation? 
  4. Why are some people motivated while others are not? 

Today I figured I would try to tackle an old topic of discussion revolving around motivation as it pertains to the mindset of training and life. My hope is that today you’ll have a different perspective about the concept of motivation after reading my point of view on the subject.
