Fitness XL- Your training routine


#1944

Why?


#1945

I bench 100kg what do you manage?


#1946

He makes fun of people on the INTERNET.


#1947

He doesn’t have the imagination for it.


#1948

Do you think lads ran out to the gym the moment they saw it? Maybe I over-estimate the common-sense on here but I wouldn’t be going near anything like that off my own bat


#1949

They will be fucking up your spine and weakening your lower back.


#1950

You are completely over rating common sense considering all the questions i get and the programs lads send me that they are doing etc.
Sometimes to be fair its “this looks a little mad, what do you think?”

Never underestimate a mans ego

Think about Crossfit sure. How many thousand go to that. Although thankfully its taken a hit


#1951

Fair point. @flattythehurdler and his monstrous ego will have a lot to answer for when there’s forumites being wheeled around the place in a few years


#1952

:joy:
Not his ego, the ego of others.

Anyway flatty should know just because he can take to something, is quite robust (or just has not felt the suffering yet) and has supervised coaching thats clearly a decent level does not mean everyone has. In fact majority don’t


#1953

Replacement?


#1954

Bridges, deadbugs, bird dogs, pallof presses and all sorts of carrying.
But the 1st 3 with no equipment


#1955

Planks - squats, lunges, deads - all work your core – Do plenty of exercises that engage all muscles instead of trying to isolate a few.


#1956

Mountain climbers, superman’s, ding dongs & Nigerian swings


#1957

Squats etc engage the core. But they do little for sponal alignment, activation and stability. Especially bi-lateral stuff


#1958

He wants to engage his core…


#1959

The horse should go before the cart.

But anyway yhis is just about tidying up a morning routine


#1960

I’d add Shimmy’s, Bolivian bear crawls and Mexican twists.


#1961

Nigerian swingers in a 5 minute morning routine?


#1962

I always thought planks were a load of shite unless you add in some instability or movement.


#1963

Add in some instability movement - Swedish curls, or Or Yorkshire ding songs as @TreatyStones was saying… you should be changing it up all the time anyways
