Well, it seems my last post was a bit of a hit. My views on Womens Fitness seem to have resonated with many of you, so if you shared the article, I thank you.
I do want to reiterate the closing statement, be sure to pass the message on. I know that my regular clients, readers and colleagues all feel the same, but we are in the minority, getting the message out to the majority is a bigger deal. That’s where people like Linda over at Get1Active.com and Rannoch, the man behind the 100 Rep Challenge idea are doing fantastic work, because they are speaking directly to those that need it the most.
Anyhow, back to my usual business.
I have promised one of my lads that I’d do a detailed post about the Squat and Squat technique. Well, I tried, but my video camera threw a hissy fit and failed to record any of the presentation. So, you’ll just have to wait, I’ll get it done for you I promise!
Half the legs, more than double the challenge!
The alternative would be to come down to Tullamore on June 2nd.
Well, my good mate Kieran who runs Dolan Fitness has asked me to teach a workshop on Kettlebell and Bodyweight Technique. Needless to say, the squat is a big part of both training modalities.
The workshop will also look at: -Fundamental movement patterns and how to load them -Core strength, developing and learning to use it -Power endurance, because getting tired is for other people! -Mobility drills for freedom of motion and injury prevention -Breath control for power, recovery and endurance -Implementing bodyweight and kettlebell drils into a wider training program
Bodyweight and kettlebells, a perfect combination
Well, that’s the aim. I have 6 hours to get as much info into the participants as possible, it’ll be a busy day. Make sure if you attend you bring, and use a notepad!
I’ll be showing many of the methods I use on a regular basis with my BJJ and Muay Thai fighters, the Rugby and GAA lads and anyone else who comes in looking to develop their athleticism. While I do use barbells, we keep them for Squats and Deadlifts, preferring instead to develop movement skills with bodyweight and kettlebell exercises. Some of our methods are fairly mainstream and will have been seen by most, other things we do tend not to be so common.
Yet they work and we have the results to show for it with lads dominating in their chosen arenas.
I’m chomping at the bit to run this workshop, it’ll be the first time I’ll have run this combined training modality event, usually I run either bodyweight or kettles, this one will bring together the best of both.
So to remind you:
