With the next 30 day challenge coming up, I wanted to take some time to talk about some of the things that we do at the Training Room.
Yes, the Whole 30 eating plan is a big part of how you are going to get RESULTS…
Our training is the icing on the cake.
At times we can get get a little carried away with stuff.
It doesn’t matter what it is.
It could the way we eat, dance, or even exercise.
We ALWAYS need to revert back to the basics.
The basics are what work the best when dealing with most things including your workout.
Always perfect the basics before moving on to anything more advanced.
We learn the alphabet before we learn a language, right?
We learn to crawl before we walk and to walk before we run although my parents always told me I hit the ground running at 7 months of age.
This can be said about many things.
- Don’t start out your running program with a 10 mile race (or any kind of race for that matter)
- Don’t pile a bunch of weight on your back and do squats until you have perfected the body weight squat (this happens a lot)
- Don’t swing a kettlebell over your head or press anything overhead unless you have the shoulder mobility to do so (this happens too much)
- Don’t go and surf big waves before you have spent plenty of time on the small and medium ones.
This list can go on and on.
Common sense right?
Not to everyone.
I feel it is part of my job as a Fitness and Sports Medicine professional to educate the public as best as I can on everything that I’ve learned over the past 30 years in the industry.
Today I will just talk about basic push-ups.
Although push-ups are one of the most basic body weight movements, there are MANY things that need to be done to perfect them.
