Assisted Single Leg Squat 🦵🏼
I know, I know, I talk a lot about single leg stability. But it’s only because of how important it is as an athlete attempts to come back from any knee surgery
Focusing on being strong and resilient on one leg is so important for any sport. Whether we’re running or cutting or jumping, chances are you’ll find yourself trying to generate force off of one leg
And if you can’t demonstrate an appropriate level of control, strength, and force acceptance, then we’re just not doing our job as rehab and strength specialists
If you struggle getting back to doing pistol 🔫 squats, this is a nice variation as the band gives a good level of assistance and the box 📦 is chosen based on the athlete’s capabilities

About today work got some aggression out. Need to remember the gloves next time busted up the knuckles. That’s what happens when you change up the workout unprepared. Did full body workout and I am officially doing 100 lbs on the leg press machine. #6weekchallenge#goals#fitnessmotivation

“Personal Trainer” #Rant
#unpopularopinion ? A GOOD Personal Trainer should #motivate, #support and #TEACH their clients #knowledge... right?
A lot of us “normal people” who are not gym and fitness addicts hire a PT to show us right from wrong and help us build upon ourselves in the most effective and efficient way.
So WHY do I keep seeing PTs upload posts of clients with BAD FORM??!! I see people being “trained” all the time who are potentially at risk of hurting themselves through bad form... like locking their knees on the #legpress or #squatting heavy while leaning forward 🤦🏻♀️ I’m not an expert, FAR FROM, but I can spot mistakes that even I used to make.... •
My PT @ hannahsharpefitness shares her knowledge and experience to better all of her clients and THIS is what a quality PT should be like. Just as you can see from the video above 🤷🏼♀️ At the end you can see my #throwback video of my #squats on #legday over a year ago. Bad form right?
Started me off with small plates under my heels to stop my feet from lifting. She taught me to squat #arsetograss to make the most out of my #training. She showed me what it feels like TO FAIL so I wasn’t afraid to push myself to the max. All of which you can see in the video. She tells me which #muscles I am targeting on each exercise and pushes me to do things I would never have tried. That’s what a real PT is.
#recognition where it’s due... Thank you Hannah just for being you.... and everyone go check her page especially if you need a PT !!! and rant over ☺️❣️
Shout out to Asian girls, let the lights DIM SUMMMMMMM to semi show the vein LOL i actually began this caption with a - HAPPPPPY FRIDAAAAAYYYYYYYYY! ..... But wait.. It’s Saturday.... 😅 #Saturday#swolefie#jk#shapeyourpotato#nofilter

🔥 BUILDING THE GLUTES 🍑 WITH THIS full lower body workout👇
about 1/4 to 1/3 of my workouts is in the lower & higher rep ranges with the goals of building strength and muscular endurance, 2/3 to 3/4 is in the medium rep range focused on building muscle💪 For my program @gainsbybrainsguide or link in bio!👏
1️⃣ sumo deadlift | 5 x 3 - 5
2️⃣ cable squat | 2 x 15, set 3: 15+
3️⃣ plate hip abduction | 3 x 12 per side
4️⃣ bulgarian split squat | 3 x 10 - 12 per side
5️⃣ glute bridge | 3 x 12
6️⃣ hamstring curl | 3 x 12 - 15 per side
For the bulgarian split squat, make sure that the heel of your standing leg stays in contact with the floor during the movements☺️ You can increase the difficulty by raising the height of the bench. But try it with a regular bench first - this exercise is so so challenging😩😩 Start with your weaker leg first (if you have one) and match the work with your stronger leg to prevent or minimize muscular imbalances!💯
