Doing the same routine

Hi all, My question is about my current program that I have outlined below. I have been doing this program for 2 months now for twice a week and it fits my goals of keeping muscular endurance up while trying to fix my biomechanical issues. I have a slight trendelenburg gait (left abductor/external r...

squating - shin position

Question about shin position during squating that i have not been able to find the answer to. If the knee is tracking in line with the toes, but the shin is still on a diagonal angle (in the coronal plane if anything), is this a bad thing? If you can imagine having a very wide stance, but not turnin...

Re: multi-compound exercises

Yeh, my point exactly. They taught us things that sound logical, like move from supported to unsupported exercises and stable to unstable (to progress). Using the bosu ball in a pushup is an example of this. Any idea's of what fit balls/swiss balls and bosu ball is good for? i can only think of exer...

Re: multi-compound exercises

Thanks again. It was a cert III and IV in fitness, done in australia at Australian fitness academy,Melbourne. Cost roughly $300 per course, total length of combined courses was 25 weeks i think, 3 days a week + work experience. The theory side was good, which conflicted with this whole "foo-foo" tra...

Re: full body training using all primal movement patterns

sav--I think the most helpful thing right now is for you to try to clarify your questions. What exactly would you like us to answer? Reading through the thread, I was starting to get a bit impatient, feeling like, 1) you already have your mind made up about a lot of things, so why do you ask us? an...

Re: multi-compound exercises

You are replying to Dub, Stu and me, none of whom said anything about metro sexual or aesthetics. We love Kenny, but we aren't him. We type better than he does. I'm a little surprised about the personal training thing. It takes me back to "why are you asking us for advice"? You don't seem to have m...

Re: multi-compound exercises

If you really are interested in plyometrics, Michael Yessis is the expert, or at least, he's the one that introduced the concept to the Western world. There are several exercises on this site thanks!I only have a muscular endurance base at the moment, i will work my way up to plyometrics perhaps. T...

multi-compound exercises

I was curious to see what people think about doing multi-compound exercises, and where they fit into programs. Using the sling systems together,moving in all planes of movement such as a 1 leg deadlift with row. Does this type of training have a place within a weightlifting routine. I generally see ...

Re: full body training using all primal movement patterns

Not much to add to Kenny Croxdales post... (only I think he confused horizontal and vertical with the bench press, which doesn`t make the message wrong; (weighted) dips could be your substitution for push-ups, when they are getting too easy for you and you still want to keep training only with body...

Re: full body training using all primal movement patterns

Your phrasing and outlook on training appears to be in the "personal looks" area of a metrosexual. The problems with that the "appearance" aspect of training is overridden to the detriment training. I'm really not that interested in the looks area, i just lack an understanding. If i was focused on ...

Re: full body training using all primal movement patterns

Do you train in a gym or at home? With weights? Or only bodyweight exercises? Do you do any other sports? Conditioning (running, cycling)? I think both variations, a whole-body workout (2 - 3 times a week) or a split (Push/Pull or Upper/Lower for example; 3 - 4 times a week) would be o. k. ... jung...

full body training using all primal movement patterns

I'm having bit of trouble figuring out the best way to train for a stronger more functional body. Do I do a full body workout 3x per week, using squat,lunge,deadlift, upper body push and pull ( in every direction) and a twist, or do i split it up over the week to train more intensely in each movemen...
