Hitchhiking on a new level. Every week I visit my grandparents, helping them with the housework or take my Nan up the town. Last week she needed to get her nails done, that’s fine let’s go! she has her mobility scooter as she gets short of breath. As we were crossing the road, some how, only god knows how, she lost control of her scooter! Before I knew it, she was literally on top of lovely pram which obviously had my baby in! In all the panic crossing the road, she couldn’t take her hand of the accelerator ... she was still driving up my pram! Mavy just sitting there watching Nan. 🤣🤣I had to lift the heavy scooter off of my prams wheel (with my Nan still sitting on it!) before we all got run over 🙈🙈🤣 Thankfully my pram survived the incident, no one was hurt... although I think my Nan was a little embarrassed bless her! I’m sure the people in the cars had a good old laugh!! #mum#mummyblogger#mummybloggers#mumlife#mom#nan#grandparents#grandparent#nansdayout#scooter#mobility#mobilityscooter#pram#egg#eggstroller#eggstrolleruk#baby#babyboy
Love this info from @optimize.physiotherapy - Mobility can and should be maintained over time, independent of age ✔️
There is often the assumption that getting older automatically means getting stiffer and less mobile. A big part of this is because that is the story we are told. It is also the story that plays out in the majority of people you see.
🔑 It doesn’t need to be that way. Your age shouldn’t dictate your joint mobility. If you don’t let your age dictate your mobility, you will have the capacity to move and be active/functional MUCH longer.
➡️ Your joints require regular movement through their respective ranges of potential motion. To maintain your joint mobility, this must be prioritized over time (along with brushing your teeth, flossing, sleeping, a healthy diet etc).
🔑 Humans tend to lose their joint mobility over time based on what they do (or don’t do*) with their bodies.
➡️ Modern life happens to have the tendency to ‘steal’ your mobility from you. Sitting in one position more than moving or exploring different positions and a sedentary lifestyle are big contributors.
↪️ Beyond this, a failure to prioritize joint mobility by many leads to gradual compounding stiffness. You can still be very ‘active’ and not maintain your joint mobility if you don’t recognize the need to and prioritize it thereafter.
✅ Your body and it’s tissues can and will change based on the mechanical stresses you apply to them and the adaptations that occur. You can gain joint mobility at any age. BUT, what is much easier is to MAINTAIN mobility by using it regularly (either through activities that demand it, or your own regime.
I love squats like most coaches!
However I don't program this pattern loaded for about 90% of the AIM tribe 😳
Not everyone needs to squat!
There are other patterns I place higher value on like Split squats, Step ups, Single leg deadlifts & Deadlifts before getting to load a barbell and squatting it!
Now, before every Tom, Dick & Harry who disagree and are about to become a keyboard warriors - STOP.
Like most good coaches start understanding the context and intent of an individuals needs and wants so you can program accordingly using the right tools & strategies best suited for that individual

Beam games in the park after bouldering today - perfect active recovery especially for our feet, ankles and hips!
Adding in a throw/catch challenge really shakes things up on the beam. You suddenly have to process how the other person is moving their body and where the ball is in space in order to change your own position fast enough to catch the ball. Can see awesome potential for this type of game in later stage foot/ankle/knee rehab, especially sports like netball/AFL/Rugby/Basketball/Cricket/any sport with a ball really!
Really liking these mini-beams as a cool portable option that you can set up pretty much anywhere - work, home, gym, studio. Thanks to @thefootcollective for the inspiration 👌 Will be making these available in early 2019, stay tuned for more updates over the next few weeks!
12 days until @theprospectmma steps into the @ufc octagon in Vegas. If you need an excuse to stay up late between Xmas and new year, watching him go for another fight of the night victory is a great one 👊🏼
21 weeks pregnant 🤰🏽💪🏽 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Thank you coach for the guidance & support @dariusz_g_ 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 🚨Strong mum alert 🚨
Check out that legend @shestands flying trough her pregnancy (21 weeks) comfortably lifting 75kg.
My role is to offer women the guidance through strength training to keep their changing bodies as strong, stable, and comfortable as possible—for as long as possible. Best of all, prenatal exercise sets them up for a speedy postpartum recovery, and gets them back to feeling strong and powerful in the gym, and in their brand new life as a Mom.
Now let's bust one of the most common myths!
Myth #1 : Lifting weights is dangerous for you and your baby.
Just the opposite is true, it seems. The outcomes for moms and babies are better with prenatal exercise. The research shows that fitter moms have shorter labors, less chance of preterm labor, fewer complications, and shorter hospital stays.
Also of note is that women who exercise during pregnancy report lower rates of perceived exertion during labor, than women who did not exercise.
Concerned about your baby’s health? Ever better news is that fit moms have healthier babies. A relatively new study (link No.1 at the bottom) showed that exercise during pregnancy might program a baby’s heart to resist cardiovascular problems later in life, because they have stronger blood vessels. Another study (link No. 2) found that the brains of babies born to women who exercised moderately throughout pregnancy appear to mature faster. Plus, it’s well documented that babies show higher APGAR scores and better handle the stress of labor when moms have exercised.
Mio cugino e il suo nuovo marchio.
Con lui condivido il nome, il cognome, il sangue.
Lo reputo una calamita, una persona con cui parleresti per ore senza annoiarti, che ha vissuto e che vuole condividere quel sapere con te, qualcuno con cui potersi confrontare e confidare.
Ha scelto la sua strada, ha scelto la moda, un mondo difficile e spietato, ma ciò non l’ha mai turbato minimamente.
Era convinto della sua scelta.
Si è rimboccato le maniche e ha lavorato sodo, ingoiando rifiuti e cattiverie, sognando nell’ombra. Con il passare degli anni è riuscito però a creare e plasmare il suo regno fatto di tessuti, linee e armonie.
In un mondo dove regna l’invidia e la superficialità, mi consola il fatto che ci sono ancora persone che mantengono intatte la propria essenza, contornata da umiltà e un pizzico di cinismo.
Perché parlo di lui qui, sul mio profilo dedicato alla mia passione-ossessione? Semplicemente perché lo ritengo un esempio da seguire, colui che dal nulla crea il suo impero. Sto imparando molto da lui (anche quali luci scegliere per fare una foto decente), insegnamenti diretti e indiretti che metterò in quello che è il mio mondo, la mia passione.
Credere in qualcosa, in se stessi e non mollare mai.
Un esempio del genere non poteva mancare su questo mio profilo.
Sono fiero di mio cugino, di ciò che è oggi, di quello che ha fatto e di quello che farà.
Con lui condivido il nome, il cognome, il sangue, e da un po’ di anni, anche progetti futuri e sogni.
It has been amazing to see so many kids achieving their level 1 before the year is out. Bianca Feros has been an absolute pleasure and shining star in our program 🌟 Level 1 means you have achieved competency in rudimentary movements underpinning athletic performance 👌
Investing in yourselves, makes you better beings = well beings.
Whether if you are training better, recovering better, planning better, getting healthier - as a result of your efforts investing in each of them. - move your perception

🚨 STRENGTHENING INTO KNEE VALGUS 🚨
Australia has one of the highest rate of ACL injuries/ reconstructions in the world however did you know that there are plenty of ways we can actually prevent them from happening?!
Research has shown that 50-70% of ACL ruptures can actually be prevented with prevention programs etc.
In recent times this topic has been one of the most highly debated issues across the physiotherapy industry. The idea that knee vagus is ALWAYS BAD needs to stop.
Although knee valgus is the most common position for the ACL to rupture and initially it is best to teach your client proper lower body mechanics to avoid this position especially when landing and cutting, it is inevitable to NEVER be in valgus in sports‼️‼️
So why not teach our clients how to be strong in this position and to get in and out of it!
In this post have included 3 great exercises to help strengthen your hip and knee in valgus!
1️⃣ Curtsy Lunge.
2️⃣ Slider Curtsy Lunge.
3️⃣ Curtsy Lunge SL Squat on Step!
Have a go at these and let me know what you think! Keep in mind, you should learn proper lower extremity mechanics prior to trying this!

Welcome to the very first #SmashMonday . Each week I will be giving away some real nuggets of strength training advice, and perhaps setting you a few challenges along the way. So make sure you follow @skochypstiks to stay tuned for the upcoming videos.
The first one is progressing towards a super smooth muscle up on rings. Brace yourselves.
The Ring Muscle Up
If you are looking to unlock the ring muscle up and already have a decent amount of pulling and pushing strength, this shouldn’t be too hard to master.
Knowing how to do this exercise correctly will save you a lot of time and in the first 3 #SmashMonday videos you are going to learn how to get it down smoothly and with perfect technique.
First of all, we have to build a decent amount of strength using a false grip. The false grip is important because it allows us to get rid of any unnecessary momentum during the movement. This might be a little uncomfortable in the beginning, but it’s really important to master because otherwise the muscle up won’t be possible.
The best way to build endurance and strength in false grip is by performing a false grip pull up.
So how do we do this?
Start by gripping the rings with an overgrip and squeezing hard so your hands don’t slip.
Using this false grip we are going to do a high pull up until our hands align with our armpits. Try pulling your hands as close to your body as possible. In the beginning, this might feel little impossible, but to get rid of the uncomfortable feeling we must build up our repetition and patience.
The whole transition is going to be a lot easier when the arms are close to our body and aligned with our armpits.
Let me know in the comments do if you like it. ————

Messing around with handstand blocks and they're messing with my head 🤯🙃 I'm pretty happy handstanding on most surfaces, but using these blocks is tricky; reconfiguring the amount of kick up / jump needed and also ... a strange fear of falling off the very small amount of height it adds hahaha

Sometimes the simplest drills are the most effective ones. I've been doing this little roll over ankle drill for a year and a half now, my ankles and hips have never felt so good in my life.
Strong and mobile joints are the key to feeling loose, confident, bulletproof and overall relaxed in your body.
Things you take good care of, last. There is no secret. It's that simple.

With the holidays fast approaching you guys are working even harder each week to meet deadlines etc.
A lot of time stationary at the desk can leave you pretty stiff and sore.
We love the bench thoracic mobilization to open up the upper back by stretching out the lats and triceps.
@dylanfwjones crushes our step by step guide to completing this, feel free to give it a try next time you're at the gym!
All you needs is a small bar for your hands (cable attachment used here) to help open up your upper back and free you from the tightness of sitting all day.
Hazy day #kettlebell play
Movement modalities to me are essentially languages; methods for the body to express itself. The body doesn’t discriminate between cardio or #mobility movement or #strength work, the body just knows it likes to move. To express. To play. And so, being fully able bodied and having access to lots of different teachers, I like to challenge it with lots of different types of play. #yoga . Kettlebells. #grappling . These are the ways my body truly loves to move. Yours might be one or all or none of these. You could like dance. Or running. Or powerlifting. Or twirling on silks or a pole. Find the things the make your body excited to move, to play, and give yourself permission to get silly. Slap them together and call them... well mine is called Bryan. Yours could be Rose or Lalo or Dana or Camilo. You get the idea. Make your movement language yours. See where your body likes to go and how it likes to get there. Have fun with this vessel. #play .
