CONDITIONING WEDNESDAYS \\ Wednesdays we work on conditioning our aerobic and anaerobic systems, with this morning being reserved for aerobic conditioning.
Our aerobic training sessions work in cohesion with our strength focused sessions to promote overall health and conditioning in all three energy systems. Why? Well we like a healthy heart, we like walking out of training feeling good and over time by training all three energy systems you improve in all three energy systems by increasing your thresholds to produce energy.
For most of us, we want to see progression over time, we want to enjoy our training and we want to feel good about what we achieve in the gym. Why restrict yourself to train one energy system or one method of training? Yes, have your goals but keep the bigger picture in mind, train with purpose and train so you can continue training well into your years.
Moving on to Event Number 3 of the England U90kg Strongman Final. This is one hell of a brutal medley that will not only test your strength but endurance too. In this video we have @rutledge1122 competing against the @lee_osment_strongman_u90kg in a grueling duel.
The Loading Medley consists of 5 items where 4 items required lifting from a distance of 15m onto a 4ft platform. Those items were a 75kg tyre, 2 x 100kg kegs and a 100kg sandbag. The 5th item required the athletes to perform a 200kg duck walk for a total distance of 10m.
If you ever want to experience something similar then why not come down to one of our Sunday Strongman sessions where @rutledge1122 and @baigxxl will test your mental strength with a grueling medley!

If full range of motion better for muscle building or partial range?
When we head into the gym we often see people performing exercises in full range of motion and others in partial range of motion. Which is better to build muscle? Let’s find out.
So let’s take the example of a bicep curl, if one person performed it in full range motion instead of stopping short you will gain more muscle size, but why is that? The simple answer is your able to recruit more muscle fibers this way .
Now does that mean partial reps should be banned from your training, not necessarily. Partial reps can be beneficial for people that are stuck in a specific spot in a certain exercise. For example, if your performing the deadlift and have trouble finishing the rep past your knees aka the lockout. Well maybe performing some reps in that specific area can improve your deadlift.
Main takeaway you should be performing your reps in full range of motion if you can, so we have the potential of bigger muscles 💪🏼. Are you training in full range of motion? If your interested in my services feel free to DM if you like. Until next time!!
Aproaching the 2.5x bodyweight mark in the Farmers Walk. Things are getting more interesting now. Actually, I should weigh myself, because I don't know if it's still at 86kg.
