Goosebumps watching a bunch of CrossFit OG’s compete as Legends at the Rogue Invitational. Crazy respect & awe for @richfroning competing in both the team & Legend divisions. #Repost @richfroning with @get_repost ・・・ Thanks to all of these guys for making the sport it is today and @roguefitness for putting on an incredible event and ensuring the history of the sport is remembered! “Amanda” was my first event ever and I actually got to watch this event from the stands, because I was in the previous heat. Getting to do this event with all these Legends this time was awesome!

#Repost @testosteronenation with @get_repost ・・・ From Jim Wendler’s “5/3/1 Beach Body Challenge”. Full, free program at T-Nation.com. Link in today’s Stories. . Take adequate rest time between each big lift. There is an obsession lately with every part of your workout being done as quickly as possible, thus turning your strength session into a circuit session. Yes, you can work to improve workout density, but that's best done with assistance movements, not the main or supplemental lifts. . If you've made the commitment to get stronger in the weight room, make the commitment to doing things correctly. Quality over quantity.

💯and unfortunately this is generally where insurance says no more PT and/or physicians tell patient they don’t need more PT. And unfortunately as PTs, many don’t progress their patients enough to mimic whatever they’re not doing - sport, work, life, fitness, etc #Repost @raygormandpt with @get_repost ・・・ 💪🏻Return to sport💪🏻 - The scariest moment for me when returning an athlete to sport is when they start to feel really good. - It’s at this point, the real work begins and the amount of self control and mental toughness necessary sky rockets. - Yesterday, we talked about famous last words in the gym. The concept of an athlete wanting to test where they are at before they ready. It’s paramount to have this conversation in regards to returning from injury. - The point in which an athlete starts to feel good is really when valuable sport workload begins to take place. Workload initially programmed in a vacuum, then exposed to real scenarios. Think about doing thrusters in isolation, then progressing them into a workout. - As a coach, the importance of your job increases here, when often the athlete’s value associated with the workload progression is decreasing. YOU HAVE TO SELL THIS CONCEPT. (Yes, I’m yelling.) - Athletes: Steady the course, stick to the plan, trust your coach. - Coaches: sell this concept, demonstrate the value and importance, layout the game plan and progression. - Know someone who would benefit from this post, tag them here! - #TurnPro

#Repost @thebarbellphysio with @get_repost ・・・ If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I’m a huge fan of deadlifts being used in low back pain rehab plans. Sometimes though, conventional barbell deadlifts just don’t work. @fitnesspainfree outlines a great progression of variations with differing levels of challenge for the low back!

#Repost @activeliferx with @get_repost ・・・ Tendinitis requires rest in order to heal. The problem is that once inflammation is gone most people just go back to what they were doing before symptoms started, that's how we can develop long term tendon issues that lead to crippling pain and dysfunction over time. It is important that once your inflammation is gone and your symptoms are resolved to figure out why the inflammation started in the first place. The most common cause of tendinitis is overuse. Overuse can come in many ways. If for example your left leg is stronger than your right by too large of a margin you will likely overuse your left leg during bilateral activities. If your hinge overpowers your squat the muscles responsible for initiating the concentric portion of the hinge will become overused over time. The tendons crossing a joint that lacks appropriate mobility will become overused because of early tension applications. The best predictor of future injury is previous injury, because we do not change what we do and how we move. #activeliferx #mobility #strength #tendinitis

This makes me so angry. Check out @pelvicguru1 profile for the link to the article. #Repost @pelvicguru1 with @get_repost ・・・ People who are pregnant face challenges on so many levels.

#Repost @coachalyssachang with @get_repost ・・・ “What is fitness anyways?” Repost from @katieanne100.. . I have been in the fitness industry since 2008. My journey and philosophy have evolved from performance based #🏐➡️ Competing in figure competitions #👙➡️ Now a message I stand by: “Befriend your body. Move confidently in your life”. Befriending your body creates space to experience life itself.. . So what is fitness?? Fitness is sometimes going off the deep end, recalibrating, and then discovering your new set point. Fitness is eating donuts, then eating salads. Fitness is running. Fitness is sleeping. Fitness is not a one size fits all nor is it stagnant. It will grow, morph and change as you grow, morph and change, but one thing is for sure…”being fit” isn’t always looking fit. Often times it’s taking a step back and looking at life and asking yourself “am I happy?” #fitness

#Repost @raygormandpt with @get_repost ・・・ It's really that simple. Proper hinging requires proper loading. It's easy for an athlete to cheat the eye of a coach, but We need to be asking where people are feeling movements. ------ If you feel deadlifts in your back, guess what you're lifting with. If you feel deadlifts in your quads, guess what you're lifting with. ----- Don't squat your hinge. Tag a friend who needs some hinge help!

#Repost @bretcontreras1 with @get_repost ・・・ I wish I had learned this earlier in my lifting career. What will make you the strongest over the long run is being pain and injury free. If your back isn’t feeling good, don’t train through it; instead train around it. ⁣ ⁣ There are so many options. A little bit of discomfort is okay, but too much is a slippery slope. Don’t slam 4 ibuprofens and warm up for 30 min just to do some heavy squats or deads that still hurt. You’ll never reach your ultimate strength potential and achieve your best physique this way. A better solution is to avoid the NSAIDs and bust out some single leg work, high rep posterior chain work, hip abduction work, etc., then head home and live to train healthily another week. ⁣ ⁣ Exercises like Bulgarian split squats, hip thrusts, and glute ham raises hit the same muscles as squats and deads and will keep them strong. You don’t always have to be squatting and pulling heavy.⁣ ⁣ Listen to your body, pay attention to biofeedback, and make adjustments to your training on the fly. It will pay dividends in the long run. You don’t want to be jacked at 30 and broken at 40. Train hard and smart, not hard and moronic, and don’t be shortsighted. The goal is to look and feel good when you’re 80 too. ⁣ #glutelab #gluteguy

#Repost @raygormandpt with @get_repost ・・・ 💪🏻Know your clientele💪🏻 - In the field of Physical Therapy, we are taught movement is the key to life. It becomes ingrained that in order to get people healthy, we have to encourage movement. - What if you work with a population that already moves a lot? 🤯 - If you’re in the business of getting people to move, you have to educate them on the consequence of doing too much. - We’re missing the mark here. We’re going from 0 - 💯 with no regard for the middle ground. Clients often get hurt from doing too much too fast, after too little for too long. This is regardless of retuning to the gym or just starting. - People need to move, there’s no doubt there. But we need to educate. We need to create awareness that not everyone’s recovery is the same. That 3 on 1 off is only good for the people who responds well to that. That less might actually be more. And most importantly, that intensity is a skill that should be taught, not one that should create an addiction. - Our job is to sell movement, but to sell it responsibly. - 📸 @supercleary #TurnPro

So true. It seemed like the longest season, but within the last few months I finally feel back to myself. As long as it was, I miss it sometimes because Tori was so little. Bittersweet. Repost from @pregnant.postpartum.athlete using @RepostRegramApp - Do you feel this?! #Repost @kcfitnessyyc ・・・ Pregnancy & Postpartum is a Season. . A really fucking long, really fucking hard, season. . But it does end. I promise you. You will start to feel more like *you* again. You will start to look more like you. Your body will feel like your own. . Eventually. . It takes time, and patience, and commitment, to play the long game in this season. It takes putting the blinders on, putting your head down, and doing the work. It takes ignoring what may or may not be "working" for others and focusing on what you know is going to be right for you in the end. . Playing the long game sucks. Doing the hard stuff now so you can thank yourself later? Often feels crappy in the now. But you *will* thank yourself later. That I will promise you. . There will *always* be quick fixes and people doing it "better". But they aren't you and they dont have to live your life in your body. So you just do you, and let everyone else do what they're gonna do. Let it be. . It's just a season. And before you know it, the season will be long gone and you'll be thanking your past self for doing the hard things. So just do the hard things.
