Being the best at what you do means not only having great strength and power, it also requires that you have the work capacity to sustain whatever task is in front of you. — A trap many people fall into is thinking “my goal is to develop strength” and disregard developing their aerobic system because it doesn’t help them. — What we see time and time again is their ability to recover from hard strength sessions decreases, affecting their ability to get back in the gym and train. — Aside from that, there are many health benefits to improving your fitness but we will save that for another day! — The take-home point is - if your goal is to get stronger, don't neglect developing your engine!
As much as we love training hard, we place a huge emphasis on recovery protocols. There are so many contributing factors to moving well and staying injury free, however there are some key areas that you should focus on. Adequate sleep, quality nutrition, minimising stress and regular treatments is a great place to start. — With this in mind, our goal is to align ourself with other businesses that share this same vision. — We are super excited to be working together with Newstead Remedial for all our soft tissue needs. These guys are amazing at what they do and are our recommendation for anyone in Brisbane! — Oh and if your a Movement Enhanced member, we have organised a deal where you will receive $10 off treatments ongoing! 😉 — Give these guys a follow @newstead_remedial_massage — #newsteadremedialmassage #movementenhanced
Proper exercise execution is essential to ensure you get the most out of your training and stay injury free. — It's important to understand why we use a certain range of motion, tempo or posture when we do different lifts. — At Movement Enhanced, our goal as coaches is to provide our clients with a fun and motivating training environment but ensure minimal risk of injury when training. — #movementenhanced #strengthtraining #strengthandconditioning #health #fitness #grouptraining #brisbane #brisabanegym
LATERAL LUNGE — The lateral lunge is an advanced mobility drill you will see appear regularly in our warm-ups. They are a great exercise to help lengthen tight adductors and build multi-planar strength. — We see a common pattern with those who cannot do this exercise. An inability to perform this movement usually indicates a lack of adductor length which can lead to poor hip rotation. This then potentially leads to compensation at the knee and lower back. — We use these the majority of the time in our movement prep, however, once the movement is mastered, they can be loaded in the goblet position. — #laterallunge #hipmobility #adductors #squatwarmup #mobility

A lack of upper back tightness is one of the most common faults in a back squat 💭 — For a high bar back squat, the goal is to retract your scaps as hard as you can so you create a shelf for the bar to sit on. You must bring your hands in as close as your flexibility allows and sit the bar on the meat of your traps. — This setup should be so tight its uncomfortable… — This tension will help when unracking a heavy weight and making it feel light off the rack! — #backsquat #squat #strength #strengthtraining #weightlifting #strengthandconditioning #movementenhanced #squats #fitness #gym #training #crossfit #powerlifting #exercisescience #strengthcoach
