The Hatfield Reverse Lunge is a variation of the reverse lunge that can be used by those who may struggling with knee pain, but still want to work the lunge movement and strengthen the lower body.
When looking at structuring your training, I am a firm believer in the idea that you need to program the most important part of your workout first.
Meaning, you need to take the primary objective for that particular training cycle or workout and do it first thing.
You warm up, then you complete that objective.
The barbell row is a staple in any strength program. Training and strengthening the back is extremely important when it comes to overall strength and health.
And a strong back is an absolute must if you are a strongman competitor.
A Warm up is an essential activity done prior to training in order to prime the body for the following workout.
Here’s why having one is important.
Physical fitness is of upmost importance. We all know it. We know the benefits and the reasons why those of us who do, exercise on a regular basis.
We want to be healthy, strong, more vibrant, have more energy, look better naked.
But do we ever spend time to think about the modalities we use and why we use those specific ones.
We all have long term goals we are working towards.
This goal we have set in our mind that someday we will reach and then everything will be better.
But at some point we all struggle to reach them.
Used to strengthen the hamstrings, the Nordic Leg Curl is a great alternative to Glute Ham Raises.
Similar to a lying/seated leg curl, however in my opinion it is superior as it incorporates more core stability.
Increasing your maximum number of pull ups is something many people struggle with.
Pull ups, in my opinion, are possibly the most difficult of all the bodyweight exercises simply because they are difficult to lighten the load.
“Practice what you preach”
A phrase many of us are familiar with, but many do not follow.
I myself included…
We all do it. We have the best advise to give to everyone else, but when it comes to looking ourselves in the mirror and giving ourselves the same advise, we come up with all kinds of excuses as to why it won’t work for us.
Utilizing the pin press can be a great way to increase your lockout strength on the bench press.
Set the pins at a height that you often fail at to blast through sticking points.
