Client Progress | Upper Strength (chins)

Friday, June 9th, 2017

It’s great to see a client smashing their physical preparation goals. This is Stephen knocking out eight reps of chins with a 20kg plate around his waist at the end of a session.  We were not testing this today; however, I am known for throwing a few curveballs at my clients from time to time…

Pre Training Testing | 10reps @ Bodyweight

End of Block 1 Testing | 10reps @ Bodyweight + 10kg

Midway through Block 2 (today) | 8reps @ Bodyweight + 20kg

We’re definitely tracking to smash Stephen’s upper strength goal (10reps @ bodyweight +20kg), which is only one ambition of many!

Common Rollout Mistake

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

The rollout is one of the greatest core exercises; however, people can get a little lazy with their hips. See the video below for one of the most common mistakes I see in the gym. The aim is to create, and keep, a posterior pelvic tilt throughout the movement. Break at the shoulders only, keep the hips forward.

See the video below for a progression from kneeling rollouts.
