Adidas, Gym, and Memes: "WE THINK IT's MORE WE LIFT RATHER THAN HOW WELL WE DO IT AND THAT'S A BIG CAUSE OF INJURY SBARBELLSHRUGGE ST SGUAT UNIVERSITY Too often I find athletes sustain injuries NOT because they are weak but because they were more concerned with HOW MUCH weight was on the bar. When the weight lifted is your highest priority rather than HOW WELL you move - problems eventually happen. Our training has become too sensitive for public approval. We bypass fundamental movement skills and instead place out emphasis on how many plates we can put on the bar. We place athletes in great danger and risk of injury by taking this strategy. Crawl, walk, RUN. Great athletes lift massive weight because they 1st have amazing technique. Yes they are strong - but you can only reach your true potential in the iron game when you emphasize technique before adding weight! 🏋🏽 . Last year j had a great opportunity to be a guest on the @barbellshruggedpodcast where we discussed topics like this & debunked some common squat myths.

Gym, Memes, and Nike: POSTURAL STABILITY THE ABILITY TO MAINTAIN GOOD TECHNIQUE THROUGH THESTICKING POINT OF ALIFT MER How WELL do you maintain technique when you hit the sticking point of a lift? Here's a great example of WHAT TO DO by 2x Olympian @bernybernardin squatting 220kg-484lbs at 69kg-152lbs bodyweight (Video by @hookgrip) ✅ . One of the take-aways from this lift is how controlling the descent can lead to a stable ascent. The faster you descend, the harder it can be to maintain balance & technique on the way back up ❌This is why dive-bombing into the bottom of a squat often leads to knee collapse & back rounding. Always control the descent ✅ . Remember, it doesn't matter how MUCH you lift, it matters how MUCH you lift WELL! Keep this mindset every time you touch the barbell & good things will happen! 🏋🏽🔥 ___________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

Adidas, Butt, and Fire: How To Fix A Painful Groin Pectineus Adductor Longus SQUAT Gracilis UNIVRHBITY Step 3: Activate Glute Medius (Lateral Butt) Here's a quick 3️⃣ step process to fixing groin pain 👇🏼 . Step 1️⃣: Grab a foam roller as shown with your leg propped on top. Stay close to your inner hip so you can hit the groin muscles. Too low and you'll end up on the inner part of your quads (VMO)❌. Roll SLOWLY for 2 minutes, pausing when you find a painful spot. You can then flex you leg up and down as shown✅ . Step 2️⃣: Lightly stretch your groin with the lateral lunge. Keep a vertical torso & a neutral pelvis (no anterior pelvic tilt!). I often see people do this stretch with a forward lean in their torso. This can often lead to stretching the hamstrings also, so by keeping you chest tall you can better focus on the groin ✅ . Step 3️⃣: we then want to activate the lateral glutes. When this area doesn't fire correctly (poor coordination) or is plain weak, it can lead to over reliance on the groin & pain. In the position shown, pick your knee off the floor SLIGHTLY. Lift it too much and it will cause your torso to tilt or side bend. This will then cause you to active your TFL & QL (a small muscle in your back) when we only want to focus on activating the glute medius. Keep your foot completely flat on the ground as well✅This should bring out a good 🔥in your lateral glutes. ___________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.
