Power Cleans from Blocks:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Weightlifting movements such as cleans and snatches have been utilised for decades to help improve athletic performance. The movement requires coordinated triple extension of the ankles, knees and hips which can be associated with sporting movements such as sprinting, jumping and changing direction.
Therefore, It can be argued the most ‘relevant’ part of the Olympic lift is the second pull which involves a powerful jump (triple ext) and shrug. During this part of the movement forces, velocity and as a result power,are highest (relative to any other part of a full clean). Taking this into consideration, when looking to improve athletic performance, derivatives may be a better use of time than full weightlifting variants.
This movement can be applicable to both strength speed and speed strength depending on bar velocity (usually dictated by load). Many coaches like to progressively ‘surf’ the force velocity curve and there are many weightlifting movements which can be adapted for this purpose.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Due to the technicality of these movements it is essential for the athlete to be able to perform it efficiently for the desired transfer effect. This of course falls back on the coach to ensure they have proficient experience to coach and analyse the movement and apply progression and regression when appropriate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Triceps have 3 heads. Lateral, the long head and the medial head. You can exercise different heads with different variations of exercises though all three heads are included in tricep exercises. Additionally if you focus on compound movements like bench press and shoulder press your triceps gets good enough of work.
Lateral head is the visible head and exercises like tricep push down and dips works on that. The long head is the back portion of the triceps which is hit by over head exercises.
The medial head is least visible and sits right below the long head, exercise like tricep push down with ropes instead of bar hit this head a bit more. Although any push down exercise will hit both the heads.
Overall all the exercises have similar function so you’re probably hitting all of them to some extent. If you feel any one area is lagging then you can include those exercises which hits that area more.

Smart drugs and pharmaceutical stimulant use is on the rise in corporate America and colleges. 🇺🇸🇨🇦
In today’s world of information overload and heightened personal performance expectations, a growing number of people look towards supplementing with psychotropic stimulants (Adderall, Ritalin etc.), and smart drugs that enhance overall brain performance. It is true, there is a surge of illegal use of psychotropic stimulant drugs to treat ADHD, and legal smart drugs amongst white collar workers and university students.
US respondents reported the highest rate of use. In 2017, nearly 30% said they had used drugs for pharmacological cognitive enhancement (PCE) at least once in the preceding 12 months, up from 20% in 2015,
Adderall has become the overwhelming drug of choice for white collar workers and college students. The demand is so great that some people who are prescribed it, wind up selling a portion of their supply on the black market. On Wall Street, it fuels the detailed rush of numbers-crunching profit; in Silicon Valley, Adderall fuels 15-hour work days. Yet the rampant use of these stimulants remains almost entirely acceptable and under the radar. However, over time, those habitually using Adderall develop a tolerance to the drug and are unable to function normally without it. Side-effects include chest pain, nausea, vomiting, fast breathing, uncontrollable shaking, fainting, and fever.
A better alternative for people not diagnosed with ADHD or other attention disabilities:
The reason why we created Limitless Naturals is because we believe in providing a natural holistic alternative to people who are looking to take proactive measures to be healthier. We did this with our product Limitless Mushrooms, which enhances mental clarity, concentration, immune function, and provides natural energy. The great thing we hear about our product is that there is no mid day crash or jittery feelings throughout the day.
Great day supporting my sons primary school at the Auckland Catholic Schools cross country yesterday!!
The course was brutal, but rewarding!! These kids are all champions!!! Its about giving it your best!!! Inspire the next generation!!!! @alisaac11 @fadia_frnsow @samir_potrus @ryliewani @henryrs200
Loved every minute supporting my son today during the inter school cross country. As parents, we only ask that our kids give it their absolute best!! Love his never surrender attitude!!! Let's inspire/encourage the next generation!! Its not how you start, its how you finish strong💪👈
As a parent, the absolute minimum we can do is teach our kids to swim!!!
If it means investing in lessons, then so be it!! You cannot put a $$ figure on a loss of life, if they're ever caught in adverse situations in the water....
Let's inspire the next generation!!!
A great team effort!!
When your sons team wins 15-0 in soccer, I think its justified everyone deserves player of the day🙂👆⚽️
As a parent, it's absolutely important, that we encourage our kids to be outdoors more!! Let's inspire the next generation!! Year 3 or U7's and undefeated so far in the season.
Ps: Well done also to Lennox for scoring 5 goals⚽️
