@carlingalls executing a great superset using bands. One to make the exercise easier while the other makes it harder. -
Adding the bands for pull-ups assists with pulling yourself up to the bar, while still executing the movement on your own. This is due to the band wanting to return to its natural state after being stretched during the lowering phase of the pull-up. -
Adding the band for pull-ups makes the exercise more challenging due to the band not being a stable surface such as the floor, bench or bar. Because the band moves while going from start to end phase, your body has to do a lot more stabilizing to control the movement. -
Give these both a try and see how you like them! 💪🏼If you or anyone you know is looking for specialized training, send me a message to see how I can help!
Clients sending in meal photos 🍲 This was ONE of the top plates sent in over last week 💯 tons of veggies, correctly portioned carbs & proteins. This was a female in particular. Typically, males and females portions are different. Further, depending on goals, portions are different within genders as well. -

"If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you." Incredible work kicking off week 2 of the #TrainLikeYourTrainer challenge 🙌
I see lots of forward progression from last weeks numbers to this weeks for push ups. Great work ladies and gentlemen, Keep it going 💪. Who's ready to crush their full burpee numbers tomorrow before our anterior strength day?
Make sure you re-hydrate, re-fuel, and rest up tonight so you're ready to rock and roll tomorrow. See ya then Sun Prairie Fam ✌😄
The perfect breakfast. A healthy balance of carbs, protein and good fats. Carbs are the centre of my being. I do not survive without them. To remove carbs from my diet would be like removing a limb. Life is about balance. If I feel like a treat, I have a treat. Denying myself the simple pleasures in life is a surefire way to fall of the wagon and self sabotage. Give me balance and I have happiness. Thank you @theempirebodyshop for teaching me the importance of food for fuel, not food for punishment 🖤
4 REASONS TO DO LUNGES
1. Targets quads, hams, glutes and calves.
2. Increases hip flexor mobility and joint stability.
3. Involves the muscles of the core due to unilateral movement.
4. Strength that translates to jumping, sprinting, squatting and deadlifting.
Reasons not to do lunges.. wait I have none.
Body maintenance is a key component in maximizing your hard work. Without it you are limiting yourself. Thank you @thumpfightgym trainer John for the stretching.
Are you taking care of your body so that you can recover properly?💪🏿 @thumpfightgym
Who says you can’t train unilateral power without impact? Split Stance Skier Swings (say that 5 times fast) for the win.
It’s no secret that KB Swings and their variations are great for developing your hinge pattern, posterior chain strength, power, muscle, and body awareness. ▪️The skier swing variation puts the load in a position that allows you to keep your feet under your hips, as opposed to having them wider to allow clearance for the bell.
▪️Using a split Stance allows you to develop your hip power unilaterally. This could be a great variation for:
▪️Training power for someone coming off an injury to one of their hips-you have 1 good leg, use it. You’ll get a crossover effect to the injured hip.
▪️Anyone that doesn’t tolerate Load very well-ankle, knee, low back
▪️Developing some hip awareness unilaterally-which would make this an advanced progression from bilateral swinging.
▪️Getting some hip conditioning in while minimizing soreness-since you’re doing 1 leg at a time, you get more of a conditioning effect while cutting the reps in half on each leg.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
