Happy Wednesday guys! Here are 3 videos I filmed the previous weeks about basic movement patterns of the push up, deadlift and regression/progressions to a deadlift.
1. Push Ups
One of the things that is often forgotten about the push up is that its a moving plank. Hence, having a stable lumbopelvic region along with good scapular control is essential for a strong, stable and safe push up. Hope you enjoy!
2. Hip Hinge/Deadlift to save the back
Hip Hinge or the deadlift is one of my favorite exercise. Utilizing a hip hinge strategies allows the gluteus maximus and hamstring to activate to decrease stress on the erector muscles.
3. Regression and Progressions of a Hip Hinge/Deadlift
As much as I love the deadlift, some may not be able to perform it since they are not sure how to hip hinge, don’t have the mobility, don’t know how to create intra-abdominal pressure. Here are some regression and progressions to a deadlift. Hope you enjoy!
