Stability is one of the most important aspects that any athlete needs to succeed. What is stability? Stability, when used in reference to the neuromuscloskeletal (nervous system, muscles/tendons/ligaments, bones) system, refers to the ability of a joint complex or complexes to remain stable and intact when under stress or physical demands and loads. Multiple joint complexes working together, such as the spine, provide the stability needed to do large movements of the body, such as deadlifting , squatting, etc. In order to maintain stability, the body uses the nerves and the nervous system to feedback information from the area under demand to the brain and back again. It uses the muscles and tendons to contract and relax in proper amounts and length of time in order to hold the joint stable when it is being stressed. The bones, along with the ligaments, provide the structural support of the joint. All of these components provide the body with stability when under stress. All joints and joint complexes have their individual stabilizers. For example, the shoulder joint uses the infamous rotator cuff muscles as some of its stabilizers. These muscles help place the shoulder joint into the proper position before movement of the joint will occur. Then the prime movers of the shoulder joint, such as the pectoralis major, deltoid, latissimus dorsi, etc. Can move the upper arm through any movement without damaging the joint itself. When these stabilizers become damaged, weak, adhered to something else because of scar tissue and adhesions, lose flexibility, they are not able to place the joint into the proper position while the prime movers move the joint. When this happens often enough, cumulative trauma begins to occur to the joint complex. It is no longer stable. All the athlete usually sees at this point is pain when using that joint, sometimes starting out as a dull pain but eventually turning into sharp pain. Down the road the athlete will not be able to use that
P1P2W1-DAY 2: Just some easy high volume bench stuff. The second phase has a lot more volume as compared to the first phase of @australianstrengthcoach Online Strength System. Time to build some muscles!!! Mid grip bench press went good. The weight was super light and I focused on staying tight throughout and not lifting my shoulders too much. @australianstrengthcoach @akki.sky01 @acrazyentrepreneur @lokeshgrover35 @coachesaroundme
Here’s what you need to know... Our... RATE OF ADAPTATION ℹ️ Meaning our ability to make progress 📉 Drastically DECREASES as we gain more training experience This is because our... STRENGTH PERFORMANCE ℹ️ Meaning our overall training capabilities 📈 Gradually increases as we gain more training experience (taking us closer towards our bodies physical potential) Which therefore tells us that our... TRAINING COMPLEXITY ℹ️ Meaning the level of change and specialised techniques within our training 📈 MUST INCREASE over time to further challenge the body and to ensure we can continue to make progress in our training (and avoid plateaus) The question then becomes... Which category do you fall into? 1️⃣ NOVICE: Less than 1 Year of Training 2️⃣ INTERMEDIATE: 1-4 Years of Training 3️⃣ ADVANCED: 3-7 Years of Training 4️⃣ ELITE: More than 7 Years of Training AND are you using an appropriate amount of complexity in your training?? 💡 HINT: Most people are using TOO MUCH complexity in their training (before they truly need it) 🤔
Good day up the GPC-GB british yesterday, supporting the one and only powerdad @oldman_strength_68. What a absolute monster, he gave everything and smashed the top spot and broke the GPC M3 world record deadlift and total. Even had a good crack at a 300kg deadlift which is fucking mental for his age. Weymouths fast becoming quite a hot spot for strength athletes now, and got a top crew to go with it. Big things to come from this small town in Dorset!
#suzukichallenge2019 . . 🔞 🇮🇹 Correva l’anno 2009: la mia prima vera moto da pista. Ovviamente una #suzukigsxr750 ! Da quel giorno io e #suzuki siamo diventati inseparabili!Oggi festeggiamo il #10thanniversary e per l’occasione la rispolvero per godere qualche giro. 🇮🇹 🔞. . . 🔞 🇬🇧 It was the year 2009: my first real track bike. Obviously a #suzukigsxr750! Since that day #suzuki and we have become inseparable! Today we celebrate the #10thanniversary and for the event I’ll return to enjoy a few laps.
First ever bench only comp done ✅ .. Thank you @strengthnation_gym for handling me again, was a good catch up after worlds 😊 @marlenashorizon - @liznaps @isabella.devetak we missed you ❤️ .. Literally had a 5 day lead up to this comp because I was wiped out by the flu 🤒, but did ok considering I was still sick and didn’t peak into comp 👌 .. Also, I’ve been feeling very flat since Worlds, but good to feel the adrenalin kick in again. Now, it’s time to turn it up for nationals in just 12 weeks time 🙌🙌🙌 .. @saltystrengthcoach .. #roadtonationals#apunsw#australianpowerliftingunion#ipf
