Any experienced lifter will tell you the importance of having a strong mind-muscle connection. In it’s simplest form it relates to thinking about the muscle you want to focus on in a lift, eg. a glute dominant back extension, or really focusing on recruiting maximal muscle fibres during a deadlift.
-
I’ve recently come across a study that is absolutley facsinating in demonstating the potental implications of this neurological connection. (1)
-
The Yue/Cole study 1992-The first group trained their left hypothenar muscles (muscles that lift the pinky finger) for 4 weeks, five sessions per week using maximal isometric contractions. The second group literally imagined producing these same, effortful isometric contractions. A third group did not train their finger at all.
-
Average abduction force increased 22% for the Imagining group and 30% for the Contraction group.
-
THAT’S INSANE!!
-
In my last post I referenced @athleticfox and a seminar of hers I watched on glute training. Another point she made, was that to really grow your glutes, you always need to be thinking about them, anytime you walk up a hill, flight of stairs or maybe squat down to grab something from the bottom cupboard.
-
This study is another brilliant example of the importance of mind muscle connection and that your mind governs everything 👌

Here's 3 fundamentals we 'drive-home' with our clients pretty much daily 💪🏻⠀
•
If you're not setting up with these key fundamentals to 'brace' effectively for your Squats, you'll more than likely be all over the place, limit your progression down the line and give yourself a higher chance of injuring something too when you do try out heavier weights.⠀
•
It's the same for any squat variation too, I'm just using the Goblet Squat here because it's an easy one to show for this video 😉⠀
•
In a nutshell, you're 'getting tight' as you can (Spreading the floor, contracting your quads/glutes etc.) before you squat while engaging the right stuff before you go down. Couple that with breathing properly and you're on a winner 💪🏻⠀
•
Tag any friends that could do with seeing this 🙂

Start your own fitness story now with Sinfit:  One of our original and funniest Sinfit clients Jimmy Farrell  about his Fitness journey so far with us in his own words:

I never thought I’d be writing one of these posts but I just have to thank Sintija and Dean of Sinfit for guiding me on the road to achieving my fitness goals. 
This time last year when i started going to their PT sessions I was a total stranger to fitness with several wasted gym memberships to my name, not to mention i was puffing away on a cigarette during the drive over to there!  When I walked in through the door (unreal studio by the way!) I could hardly lift the bar with no weight or do any of the exercises..I was about as flexible as a brick and I’m not exaggerating i was useless..But they don’t let you give up! Fast forward to now and I can truly say I’ve caught the fitness bug. I feel more energised, athletic and I haven’t smoked since new years! (A surprise benefit! I guess you don’t want to smoke when your exercising!) I know I wouldn’t be writing this today if it wasn’t for the help from Dean & Sintija! The difference between them and other gyms is that you get the sense that they genuinely want you to succeed! I’ve moved on from Galway now but because of SinFit I have the confidence now to walk in to any gym and go over to the dreaded weights section and not make a fool of myself 😂 Can’t recommend them enough! 💪💪

Acceleration 🏃🏻‍♂️
•
Med Ball Push Throw start is a nice acceleration drill to help teach you to get your centre of mass moving out in front of the hips to keep the angle of acceleration lower as you don’t want to be too upright too soon
•
The med ball helps you relax more into the movement as you try push the med ball as far as you can and get after it.
•
You naturally move into a better position without having to over think it 😂

Love this plyometric from @michaeldrachtraining • 
With a prep plyo step it try’s replicate the first few steps of acceleration and using the @exsurgo.us gflight to measure GCT of the reps to encourage max effort too. •

Although I didn’t use it this set as I was wobbling all over the place 😂

CARBS ARE THE DEVIL👹!!
•
EASY CALORIE SAVER SERIES #12
•
Ok, first of, Carbs are not the devil. People think they are. But...
•
Eating excess calories is what will hamper the results you want, so here's a simple calorie saver, swapping Rice for Cauliflower rice.
•
There's very little difference in taste when you take into context that you will be using the rice as more of a side for your main dish of a curry or stir fry anyway.
•
And whereas time gone by there would have been an argument to say that the effort needed to prep the cauliflower wouldn't be worth it, cauliflower rice is now readily available prepped in all main supermarkets 🍚🍚
•
Very handy way of saving hundreds of calories to be used elsewhere or help reduce overall calories to help with dropping those few extra pounds or help tone those areas we are finding tough.
•
And a major bombshell in it all is that they are both Carbs.. 😳😂

Hamstring iso catches *

There are a load of different Isometric variations with catches being one.. These catches are a progression on from the Chinese planks that I’ve done before so I wouldn’t recommend going straight into them as they aren’t that nice.

Check out the a few posts back to see the Chinese planks.

If you had told me years ago I would be sitting here today meditating in my garden, I would have been sure you were talking about somone else. I wouldn’t call myself a hippie, but I think most of us could benefit by being a little more hippie sometimes 😉
- 
We always hear about the negative effects of stress on our bodies, but if you have that kind of old school mentaility like I did, you take no notice.
-
‘Rest and digest’ and ‘fight or flight’ refer to the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous systems. The parasympathetic nervous system work to keep our body in homeostasis, meaning maintaining equilibrium in our physiology. Our sympathetic nervous system was once used to prepare us for an imminent threat, but seeing as we don’t get chased by tigers or bears too often anymore, we mainly use it to stress over trivial things.  Like, someone leaving me negative feedback on this post for example.
-
When we use our Sympathetic nervous system our heart rate increases, bronchial tubes in your lungs dilate, pupils dilate, muscles contract, saliva production is reduced, the stomach stops many of the functions of digestion and more glycogen is converted to glucose. It makes sense why overuse of the sympathetic nervous system could be linked to heart disease, asthma, weight gain and a host of other health concerns.

Sometimes we can’t change the stressors in our lives. We can change the way we respond. If meditating in my garden makes me a hippie, then I guess i’m a hippie... 🌈🌸🌺

Tight Hamstrings 🤔⠀⠀
∙⠀⠀
Giving this routine a go before a Full Body or Lower Body Focused Training Session may help with that.⠀⠀
∙⠀⠀
1: Foam Rolling ~ Only do this step if you feel your Hamstrings are 'tight' in certain spots. 30 seconds either leg will be fine here.⠀⠀
∙⠀⠀
Do the following then for 2-4 Rounds;⠀⠀
∙⠀⠀
2: Active Straight Leg Lowers ~ The key here is pinning your lower back against the ground while controlling that lowering of the leg in a straight line on the way down (You're keeping the leg strict and avoiding it rotating left/right) Aim for 5-10 each leg here.⠀⠀
∙⠀⠀
3: Squat to Stands ~ A staple for any lower body session and Hip/Ankle Health too. Aim for 10 reps here.⠀⠀
∙⠀⠀
4: Slow Romanian Deadlifts (RDL's) ~ You firstly need to know how to do these which is a learning process in itself, but if you do, you want to sink into the Stretch while keeping everything under control. A Safe Range means you don't 'over-do' things and end up bending at the spine, this is all hips for a hip-hinge movement aiming to stretch the hamstrings. ⠀⠀
∙⠀⠀
Then for the rest of your training session, any 'hamstring' focused movements you're doing, aim to train them through a FULL & Safe range of motion. Over time, things should get better 💪🏻⠀

Heavy Sled Accelerations
*
Listening to JB Morin in relation to heavy loaded sled accelerations he makes a lot of sense. *
He argues a lot of brilliant points but one of the main ones I picked up on was that when accelerating if you are losing or seeping energy at the ankle it can become an issue and acceleration can suffer, so utilising heavy sleds can help build and help train the ankle to absorb and output more force, *
As well as that having the ability to output more force in a horizontal movement can be beneficial when you reach a certain point with vertical strength movements.
*
But again remembering the main goal with this drill it is an exercise to help supplement and train a certain quality for acceleration
*
If you want to get fast you’ve got to run fast and everything else you do should aid that.

I've chosen opportunities where I might fail rather than live in the shadow of my own potential - Reshma Saujani
-
I try my best to always be living outside my comfort zone. Many people might not see the logic in what I do, moving from country to country, time and time again leaving what people would call comfortable situations.
-
There most definitley is no financial gain in it, and to some extent it’s a lonley life, making friends only to never see them again. Never being within arms reach of family. It’s been difficult constantly starting over.
-
When I was young my dad used to read me that poem by Robert Frost, Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

People may not understand what you do, and that’s ok. No two shadows look the same.

A lot of the reason we workout is to stay lean right? Well, what if I told you that we actually burn more calories with all the other physical activity we do less conciously?
-
I’ve always been the type of person to never sit still for long. Before I was in the fitness industry I worked as a chef. I ate like crap and never conciously worked out, but I also never sat down. People always asked me how I stayed so skinny with out a decent diet and exercise regime.
-
The answer is NEAT- Non exercise associated thermogenesis.
-
I could never have a desk job, and I’m happy to be the type of person that couldn’t. Studies show that NEAT can account for 15-20% of metabolism, while EAT - Exercise assosicated thermogenesis may only account for 5%.
-
So whats the point of all this? Well, as crucial as intentional exercise is for keeping a lean physique, don’t forget about all the small things you can do throughout the day to burn a few extra calories.

Parking further away from work, walking the dog or maybe think about buying a standing desk. It all counts! #fitforlife
