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

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

  1. Are you familiar with the kinetic chain? 
  2. Are you training your body to eliminate weak links? 
  3. Are you currently battling with injury and tweaks throughout your body? 
  4. 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.

3 Great Exercises To Prime And Mobilize Your Hips, Knees, And Ankles

So I’m sure you’ve had those days where you walk into the weight room knowing it’s squat day and you feel tight as hell and realize that you need to work to mobilize your hips, knees, and ankles. After 8 hours of a stressful workday, a long commute in the car, and too much Netflix in the evening it’s easy to fall into the trap of getting that all too common hip, knee, and ankle immobility that can train wreck your squat day.

Are You Neglecting This Strength Movement?

Are You Neglecting This Strength Movement?

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!

Dynamic Motion: The Keys To Moving Before Moving!

Dynamic Motion: The Keys To Moving Before Moving!

I always like using the analogy that the body is just like a car engine. Anybody familiar with cars understands that you’ve got to allow an engine to be broken in. If the engine has some miles on it then you need to allow it time to warm up after you fire it to ensure you can have an enjoyable trouble free ride.

Fluids have to warm up, hoses have to warm, and the oil itself needs to warm so it can become a bit less viscous and less like maple syrup. All of these factors play into the engine running better lubricated, smoother, faster, and without setbacks. Your body works in the exact same way.
