✅📝 SUFFER WITH SHOULDER PAIN?! •
✅📝 The shoulder is a bio-mechanically complex structure which tends to be overused with anterior (forward/front) movements. This can leave the Posterior aspect of this complex structure feeling neglected and underused. Leading to shoulder pain and MB’s (Muscular imbalances). •
✅📝 Bands are a great tool in priming those shoulder muscles for overhead activity & pressing movements HOWEVER external rotation is commonly performed incorrect leading to issues with the Elbow (a whole different post altogether). •
✅📝 An effective way to warm up the shoulders posterior muscles is what I like to call... The A - T - Y. Dave has had major issues with the shoulders due to his job in the building trade leading to injuries & MB’s. Reinforcing the posterior muscles has been a major focus and we can now see some real strength in the upper back musculature. •
✅📝 The A-T-Y can be regressed and progressed with appropriate variations of band loads. Aiming for 8-12 reps for 3-4 sets will leave your shoulders on fire 🔥 •
✅📝 Also worth noting Dave was 125kg but is now 86kg. The man is a beast!!!
The biggest mistake people make with dieting is that they think due to the decrease in calories they should avoid lifting heavy. 😭
This couldn't be further from the truth. You should be trying to lift as heavy as you can on heavy compounds. This will allow you to maintain your muscle. If you stop doing that the only thing you will accomplish is getting weaker and smaller. 😨

@trent_mccloskey - ⛔️ STOP LOSING MUSCLE ⛔️
We all know how appealing losing weight FAST sounds 🤩⠀
But…the reminder that we’re playing the long game here (well, actually the never-ending game) shouldn’t hurt too much I hope ⠀
And here’s the main thing to keep top of mind: ⠀⠀
Once you reach a place where you’re happy with your results, you’re not gonna care if it took you 6 months, 2 years, or even 5 plus years; you’re just gonna be so thrilled you made the decision when you did…⠀
A frustrating issue folks may find themselves in is losing weight too quickly and when the scale reflects progress, they look in the mirror and see the lack of muscle definition they expected to have at that bodyweight…⠀
This happens from a loss in both fat AND muscle 😅⠀
Aggressive dieting, excessive cardio and exercise will begin to create the perfect storm for losing your lean muscle mass…⠀
The solution is to go about dieting at a moderate pace, (not losing more than 0.5% to 1% of total body weight per week or roughly 0.5 lbs to 2 lbs per week - can be a bit quicker if you’re more overweight) and having a few strength training and cardio workouts each week ✅⠀
And of course moving more, getting involved in more activities, stretching and mobility, etc. but at the general level, it’s that simple. It’s simple because I view consistency as speed! 💯⠀
The strategic long-term play is going to crush the ups and downs of a yo-yo dieter.
