The Kinetic Chain: Breaking The Weak Link To Optimize Your Strength

The Kinetic Chain: Breaking The Weak Link To Optimize Your Strength

The original publishing date of today’s post was back on September 14, 2017.

If you are serious about building a strong body from head to toe then you will love today’s article. The last thing you need in your training is a weak link and today I’m going to walk you through the process of eliminating weak links along with explaining to you the role of your kinetic chain.

Make sure you read and apply today’s message. Make sure to share this article with your family and friends!

Are you familiar with the kinetic chain? 

  1. Have you been training your body to eliminate weak links? 
  2. Are you currently battling with injury and tweaks throughout your body? 
  3. Are you looking to strengthen every muscle in your body, or kinetic chain? 

An illustration of the kinetic chain. When Achilles was a little baby his mother dipped him into a river of magic in order to protect him from the world. It worked because Achilles could not be harmed except on the one heel that his mother neglected to submerge in the water because of where she held him when she dipped him into the water.

The Finisher HIIT Workout To Close Out Your Day’s Training

The Finisher HIIT Workout To Close Out Your Day’s Training

  1. From time to time to close out your day’s training do you perform finisher HIIT workouts? 
  2. Are you familiar with what a finisher is and how to inject it into your training? 
  3. How often do you incorporate finishers into your workouts?

Before I go any further I want to preface by stating the obvious which is that the whole point of your training should be to aim at getting you better. I’ve been a strength and conditioning coach in Atlanta now for nearly 20 years. This has always been the goal.

I think sometimes a common misconception about professional programs is that they are all designed to leave you face down in a puddle of your own sweat and misery with delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) to follow up for the following week.

The original publishing date of this article was back on May 31, 2018.

I wanted to pull this one from the archives to post here for you today to drive you to focus on efficiency. Life in much of today’s society is plagued with inefficiency and inefficiency is a pet peeve of mine. When it comes to your life you should be as efficient as possible and this is certainly the case when looking at your workouts!

Take the time to read through today’s article and apply these workouts to your training. Make sure you share this with family and friends. They need efficiency in their lives too. Get after it!

Because of this these time efficient HIIT workouts can vary. So you can scale the level of intensity and volume as you can with anything else in order to suit your current level of fitness and ability. Remember that I always expect you to push, but not at the expense of quality movement and control.
