Check yo self before you wreck yo self! Make sure to save and bookmark for yourself to go back and go over before it’s training time! . #Repost By @kelly.lenahan: One of the most common complaints i hear from athletes is about some kind of hip pain. • Often times beginner lifters tell me they’ve pulled a hip flexor or feel a lot of hip discomfort after squats and/or deadlifts. • The first thing i always ask is whether or not the person is warming up properly. Are you prepping your body for the movements you’re about to make with heavier loads? Before both squats and deadlifts i do a good amount of hip flexor stretching and warming up. Your hips (and psoas’ in particular) are responsible for handling a lot of the load in both the squat and deadlift, as they are both hinge movements. Your hips are designed to hold heavy weight! But if you are continually putting them under stress without prepping them, stretching, and releasing... pain is often a result. • Make sure you’re prepping your body for heavy lifts. Dynamic warmups are crucial, and if you’re experiencing hip pain or tightness, a tight psoas is often the culprit. Look into getting worked on by an ART specialist or look up psoas releases/stretches 🤙🏼 • Hip circle: @mbslingshot... weapon of choice warming up my hips and glutes before lifts 🙌🏼 • 📸: @tommytadeo#mbslingshot #hipcircle #warmup #liftingtip #powerliftingtips #strengthtraining #strengthandconditioning #protip #prepyoself #hippain #psoas #psoasstretch

Leave it to a bamboo bar to humble you real quick. — Here we have @bigj_extremefitnessgetting some work in with a bamboo bar. Fully extended #bandz make it harder to stabilize. Some 45s it even more challenging. And STrong Sleeves keep those elbow joints safe as you become STronger. Even after 36 years with an old school mentality, sometimes you learn new tricks that are worth keeping up your sleeve. — #STrongSleeves #bamboobar #safetyfirst #StrengthIsNeverAWeakness #DoMoreBeMore #ST06

The Sling Shot isn’t just for newbies, people rehabbing injured shoulders or elbows, or even those who just haven’t got the movement down. 4x Worlds STrongest Man @shawstrengthweighing in at 420 lbs uses his Sling Shot for overloading on dips and staying healthy. Every level of athlete can utilize the #Slanger for dips, push-ups or bench press. Strategically attacking weaknesses and allowing your body to keep good form under tension. Plus, one burnout set and the pump of a lifetime. 🔥 — #dips #pushups #reactive #SlingShot #StrengthIsNeverAWeakness #DoMoreBeMore #St06

WAIT FOR IT — Moments like this can take an innocent clamshell to you taking a band right to the crotch and ruining the pump you worked so hard to create. — The #HipCircle was created because bands like this always snap, break, roll and pull on your skin. — @travispastrana #Bands #HeWasntReady #SnapBack

You can’t buy strength and no one can do the work for you. You have to earn it by working hard and being consistent. After having lost 50lbs, @realmattwenningsets himself apart by earning every bit of this 1rm bench of 405lbs plus 200lb in bands. #bandbench #wenningstrength #StrongSleeves #STrongBows #GangstaWraps #StrengthIsNeverAWeakness #DoMoreBeMore #ST06
