The Trifecta Fix for Low Back Pain

Chronic Low Back Pain is extremely common among patients coming into my clinic. There are multiple reasons as to why someone can exhibit chronic low back.Previous/past injuriesRepetitive poor movementPoor lifting techniqueoveruse of certain muscle groups leading to low back tightensspoor postural position during daily activitiesUnfortunately, most people are unaware that there posture and movement are almost always part of the reason(s)  why they’re in pain. It’s not often that there is a serious disk or catastrophic injury that is present. Chronic low back pain is chronic bc the action that’s continues the pain is not stopped. A thougrough assesment can significantly help identify where your pain source is.Once your pain source is identified you can begin to create a plan that can help fix it. Wether that’s modifying your daily activity, limiting certain movements to avoid pain, or using exercis and therapy to decrease pain and correct any structural or tissue imbalances. The three videos below are focused towards fixing the imbalances that are most commonly seen with chronic low back pain.Exercise 1: This first exercise demonstrates a half kneeling quadricpes stretch. Most often the anterior core is shut off and the posterior low back takes over to create tightness and stability. This leaves the quads on the front side which are usually over dominant tugging the opposite direction. This mobilization activates the anterior core and allows the hip flexor and quadriceps to be placed in a better stretch while breathing creates space within the tissues and anterior hip capsule.Exercise 2: Supine Hip Flexor Strengthening. This exercise does a great job at stabilizing the lumbo-pelvic hip complex and activating the hip flexors. The hip flexors are usually weak and under active in comparison to the overactive powerful quadricpes, especially the rec fem. You can perform this exercises staticly or dynamically  depending on preference. I recommend starting with the static version and then moving to they dynamic version once you have developed enough strength and control.Exercise 3: Side Lying Glute Med activation: This exercise is needed to activate the glute med which is responsible for a number of reasons. Keeping the pelvic in a good position to create balance within the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex. A strong glute med keeps the femur where its supposed to which allows the surrounding supporting musculature to work.If you are experiencing low back, hip or glute pain, I recommend giving this trifecta a shot before your training, cardio, or even your off days.

GAT Amino GT at - Best Prices on Amino GT!

I tried this out for 5 weeks as a lower stim preworkout. Primarily this is a BCAA product with caffeine and some electrolytes and digestive enzymes. The other portions (3g aminos, a little HICA) are nice to have. From what I read 500mg 3x daily was a clinically studied and recommended dose. the amount here may be just to have on the label, or could give a little anti-catabolic bump to the Leucine. Either way, I’m not knocking it. What it looks like is a slight amount of betaine & HICA for decreasing soreness. Any little bit helps. Also, I like Citric Acid (absorbption?) & Pineapple Extract (natural vasodilator ). Why I chose AMINOGT and why I’m satisfied with it. I needed to bring down the amount of stims consumed in the morning preworkout, having gone for a few months on 300mg+ almost daily. This gave me just enough to get going. I was never raging in the gym, but I was prepared to do some work. I also appreciate the source being natural green tea instead of anhydrous or synthetic. I had no issues with jitteriness or feeling burnt out. Taste wise - I had Strawberry Kiwi every day and was very good without being overly sweet.

Natural Gains: The Proven Training Strategies | T Nation

 This is a great way to get a good pump and build muscle on the heels of your strength training. In fact, one recent study found that when you perform an exercise to failure with loads of 30% of your 1 rep max (very light, 20+ reps) it's nearly as effective as using loads of 80% of your 1 rep max. So when you train isolated muscle groups, do the exercise until you can't do it any longer. You'll get the pump of your life.

Sagittarius Horoscope for Thursday, June 14, 2018

Thursday, June 14, 2018 - You could fall in love in a big way today. But whether you’re captivated by a person, a place or an idea, your feelings are disruptive to the status quo. It’s nearly impossible to continue with your day-to-day routine when your emotions are so unstable. However, you will likely return to your senses on a moment’s notice once you realize that things are not always as they appear. Personal ups and downs rise and fall like the tides, but your responsibilities remain. Don’t be daunted; just grit your teeth and get to work.

Good Form vs. Bad Form: What You Don't Know | T Nation

So, if you're a competitive lifter or just care a lot about being strong, "good technique" often means finding the easiest way to lift the weight. For example, if you were attempting to break your one-rep max record on the squat, you wouldn't lower the bar over a 6-count and then pause for 1-second at the bottom before ascending back to the top. You'd instead use the easiest tempo.

A Dozen 20-Minute Workouts You Can Do at Home

Of all the reasons people skip a workout, the weakest is saying, “I couldn’t make it to the gym,” as if the only way your body will ever get faster or stronger is on a treadmill or in a squat rack.

Each takes no more than 20 minutes, doesn’t require a lot of equipment, and is a total-body routine that ticks off all the fitness boxes: calorie-burning, muscle-building, core-strengthening. In other words? You’ve got no reason not to end this year strong.

The Best Shoulder Workout Moves to Avoid Injury

Do 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps for each of the moves, resting 1 minute between sets. Use heavier dumbbells for the first exercise (incline-bench isometric row) and then lower the weight for the remaining 3; try using around 40 pounds and 15 pounds, respectively. Avoid setting down the dumbbells between the last 3 moves. Once you’re done, rest 2 minutes and finish with a brachial, or dead, hang. Complete this circuit 2 or 3 times a week.

7 Brutal CrossFit Workouts that Are Worth the Pain

Do 20 wall balls as quickly as possible. Whatever time you don't use of the 60-second countdown to your burpee pull-ups is considered rest time. At the one-minute mark, switch to burpee pull-ups. Do all seven, and once again use the remainder of the 60 seconds to rest. You'll do seven sets of each exercise. At one minute per set, that’s 14 minutes of nonstop work. Remember, if you use all 60 seconds of each round to complete the reps, that means no rest for you until the 14-minute workout is over.

5 Self-Improvement Tips for Lifters | T Nation

I have a new piece of advice for personal trainers working with new clients trying to lose fat: Walk with him or her out to the parking lot and look in the backseat of their car. Nearly universally, the backseat is a mess. Fast food bags, clothes, crap, and God knows what cover most of the seating area. If the backseat is cluttered, the car is cluttered, and this person's life is cluttered. And the car smells of old McDonald's French fries. You know that smell.

Tip: Glucose Monitoring for Fat Loss | T Nation

If the blood sugar is out of range two hours after you've eaten, then you'd need to investigate your diet. What's called the "first phase insulin response" happens within a couple of minutes of consuming food. This can be dysfunctional due to gastrointestinal issues or early signs of beta-cell problems. And it can be seen in a general way with blood glucose monitoring where the blood glucose stays really high in the first hour and a half after eating.

Lifters Over 30 Need to Get Real | T Nation

A lot of coaches say that lifting weights for higher reps makes you more prone to injury. In the case of training methodologies that have you racing the clock, it's true. But sets of 10-12 or even 15 reps of a compound movement shouldn't be outside the vocabulary of a recreational lifter who has his health and wellness first in mind, along with building plenty of muscle and strength.

How Natural Is Natural Bodybuilding? | T Nation

Sorry if I'm spoiling the fairytale you perhaps very much want to believe, but I'm here to speak the truth. Just so you won't think I'm a complete asshole, in the amateur level you might find some very good natural guys. But when it comes to the highest level in the world, meaning the pros and top level national competitors, you won't find anyone natural, even in the tested shows. That's the truth. If someone wants to prove me wrong, bring me a pro bodybuilder and I'll pay for their "real" drug test.

40 Train the Hamstrings with Heavy Eccentric Contractions to Prevent Injury and Improve Speed

Use heavy eccentric contractions to prevent injury when sprinting and improve speed. Research shows that based on sprinting movement analysis, the best way to prepare the hamstring for high speed and extreme ground reaction forces is heavy eccentric training.   Hamstrings are one of the most commonly strained muscles in high speed sports such as soccer, rugby, football, and sprinting. The majority of hamstring injuries occur while running at maximal speeds, partly because the hamstring is a biarticular muscle that crosses two joints—the hip and knee and joints.

Tip: Do NOT Use This | T Nation

They can also make your digestion even worse by neutralizing your stomach acids. To add insult to injury, even though many antacids contain calcium, neutralizing your stomach acid can actually inhibit calcium absorption. When you have a lot of unusable calcium, it's gotta go somewhere, and that can translate to kidney stones.

Tip: Do NOT Use This - Biotest

Bad digestion? One of the worst ideas in the world is to take antacids. Antacids can inhibit your absorption of protein and other nutrients. That alone should cause you to toss your heartburn tabs in the trash.

Hadi Choopan Can 100% Not Compete In USA Due To Travel Ban Supreme Court Ruling | GI News

The new Supreme Court ruling reinforces President Trump's travel ban... preventing Hadi Choopan and other athletes from competing in the United States. Hadi Choopan's status of being able to compete in the United States for events such as the Arnold Classic or the Mr. Olympia (should he qualify) was always up in the air due to the ongoing conflict of Trump's travel ban with the Supreme Court. But a new ruling on June 26 has no reinforced the travel ban - and confirms that athletes like Hadi Choopan will 100% not be able to compete in the USA for any bodybuilder competition he qualifies for.
