It’s never crowded on the extra mile. Putting the effort in to do the little things right is what separates the good from the great. Anyone can put in a hard session in the gym. But having the balls to get 8 hours sleep, warm up and cool down properly, eat appropriately for your goals, consistently do 1% more rather than cutting corners. That is the difference. #momentumpt #momentum #performance #athlete #athleticdevelopment #portmelbourne
Step ups are a great single leg movement and an effective exercise to implement in any training program that can improve leg strength. These variations of the step up can be performed to provide a differing stimulus to improving different aspects of performance, including single leg functional range of motion, strength, and power output.Hand in hand with opposing arm swing movements, a stiff trunk, and a heightened intent to move, movement patterns involving hip and knee drive can be further enhanced! ✔ Note that in the variations listed that different types of loads / resistances can be applied to enhance the desired training effect. 1. Kneeling Step Ups - Focus is mainly on functional range of motion, a small step or a plate can be placed in front to increase the demand of the hip flexors. 2. Step Ups - Begin at a range of 90 degrees at the knee and hip joint and focus on driving through the heel. The opposing knee can drive forward as seen in the video to promote hip drive the the “stepping” leg. 3. Lunge into Step Up - A progression that focuses on moving the hip joint through full range of motion whilst emphasising intent to move. The step should be met with a firm push through the entire foot, and an arm swing that will oppose lower limb movements (without holding load) 4. Lunge into Power Step Up - A power based progression of the step up. This variation is focused on single leg maximal force production, and is purely focused on concentric force production. 5. Summated Power Step Ups - Also a power based progression of the step up. This variation also aims to improve single leg maximal force production, however this variation focuses on increasing the summation of muscular contractions through constant stretch shortening cycles! #momentumpt #momentumperformance #trainingtip #stepup #strength #conditioning #performance
Every success sets a new standard. Every failure teaches a new lesson. Pay attention. #momentumpt #momentumperformance #buildingbetterathletes #portmelbourne #bettereveryday
Aim for the stars, if you miss then you might just hit the moon. The aim of setting goals and making plans shouldn’t be to choose things you know you can do. Choose goals/plans that make you a little nervous, scare you at times and put you out of your comfort zone. Growth, development & learning will come from the things that challenge you most. #momentumpt #momentum #beunstoppable #portmelbourne 📷 @nattiej

Are you struggling to perform pull ups or lacking proper technique? ! The pull up is a fantastic body weight movement designed to increase upper body vertical pulling strength, and requires strength through range of motion across multiple joints to complete. Following on with the progression sequence listed, implementing different tempos to add resistance during these variations can also aid with improving performance depending on which part of the movement you struggle with! Different hand grip positions can also be utilised, and range from easy to hard in the following order: Underhand grip (Palms facing body) ✋ , Neutral Grip (hands parallel, thumbs closest to body) ✊ , Overhand grip (knuckles facing body) 🤚 1. Scap Pull Ups - from a hanging position, retract and depress the shoulder blades to initiate the pulling movement! If this is a challenge at body weight, add a band! 2. Banded Pull Ups - Offloads excessive resistance, allows movement through full range of motion. 3. Heavy Negatives - Eccentrically loaded pull ups with no actual pull up. Start at the top position and control down for an extended period whilst keeping the core, lats, and glutes engaged. 4. BW Pull Ups - Engage the muscles surrounding the shoulder blade and the lats, pulling your body up and your chin over the bar. Control through full range of motion. 5. Weighted Pull Ups - Same as above, add resistance to accomodate performance! Tempo can also be used to accommodate performance too! #momentumpt #momentumperformance #pullup #technique #trainingtip #strength #upperbody
