Glute Medius - The Weakest Muscle in Your Lower Body!
 
04:26
Strengthen every muscle here - http://athleanx.com/x/no-weaknesses Subscribe here for every video - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW Your glute medius is pound for pound the weakest muscle in your lower body. This is because unless you are directly training it, the glute medius is going to have a tendency to get weak and dominated by the more heavily concentrated on muscles like the quads and hamstrings. In this video, I show you how to easily address the weakness in the glute medius muscle and three ways to progress the exercises depending on your current strength level. First thing you need to know is whether or not you have a glute medius that is too weak. If you get knee pain during squats or deadlifts, you may very well have a weak glute medius on one or both sides. If you get an intense burn and fatigue in your hips when you do a simple side leg lift, you may in fact have weak glutes. If your hips drop when you stand on one leg, you most definitely have a weakness and it needs to be addressed. Here I show you a basic bodyweight exercise to strengthen the glute medius. This is a great option since it is closed chain. This means in the case of this exercise, that the foot is in contact with the ground on the working leg as you train the muscles in the hips. The leg furthest from the wall is the one you will be working on. Begin by lifting the leg closest to the wall and bending the hip and knee ninety degrees. From here allow your left leg muscles to get lazy as you let your pelvis drop to the right. You should now see that your pelvis and hips are slanted down and to the right a pretty good amount. The only way you will be able to restore a level pelvis is to slowly and concertedly contract the glute medius on the left leg. Try to slowly contract this muscle to lift the hips back up to level and even a bit beyond. You should feel an intense squeeze in your glutes on the left leg if you are doing this correctly. Aim to complete 20 reps in a slow controlled fashion if you can. If this variation is too easy, simply place the physioball on the wall on the outside of your non working leg. You will now use the resistance of the ball to make the driving of the outside hip even harder. Finally, you may use a band if you need to make the exercise even more difficult. Likely, you will find that you don’t even need much resistance as you have allowed this muscle to get weak by ignoring it for too long. Stop overlooking any muscle and start training like an athlete.

Our organism needs adequate foods consumed in right nutrition amounts in order to function at its peak performance. Young women should consume particular hormone balancing foods, in order to control their menstrual cycles and their hormones. These are women that are less active and middle aged women. These foods can be extremely beneficial in dealing with hormones for pre-menopausal women. These hormone balancing nutrients are great for older women who are going through menopause and those who have passed it, because these foods will make them look younger and will prevent the formation of wrinkles. The bodies are not able to produce hormones or maintain a balance of hormones without the foods that are rich in nutrients. Here are 5 foods that are the best to be avoided and 5 essential foods for women. BENEFICIAL 1. YOGURT. Yogurt is ancient and has a large range of health advantages. Yogurt is rich in calcium, that is perfect for strong bones and probiotics that help to increase healthy bacteria in the gut. Vitamin D is also an essential part of balancing hormones and aging gracefully. 2. Fatty Fish. Omega-3 fatty of acids is the most important for the women’s cellular health. They are beneficial because they can prevent diseases and conditions such as including heart disease, hypertension, inflammatory disease, and depression. 3. Vegetables Rich in Antioxidants. Dark leafy greens are rich in antioxidants. Foods that are considered to be essential for proper hormonal balance are: kale, collard greens, spinach, and cilantro. 4. Healing Spices. Herbs and spices are great for keeping youthful, radiant skin. Women should use cinnamon, ginger, and garlic, because they will help them to stabilize their moods, stabilize their hormones, and remain looking young longer. 5. Avocado. Avocados are rich in healthy fat, which help females’ bodies absorb and use key nutrients. Avocados are also in fiber, rich in magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, folic acid, and B-vitamins, which are all essential for balancing hormones. AVOID: 1. SUGAR Sugar is often considered to be the number one enemy. The consumption of sugar is the main reason of obesity and diabetes. It may lead to hormonal imbalance in women. Additionally, it is very bad for the pancreas, the liver and the digestive system generally. Consuming sugar also compromises the nervous system for up to 50%. 2. Alcohol The intake of alcohol harms your organism by dehydrating it and also making your body organs function over time. If you are having hot flashes, you should avoid alcohol. 3. Caffeine Women going through menopause, should avoid caffeine, because it causes hot flashes. It promotes anxiety and nervousness in younger women. Cutting down on caffeine helps in balancing the body without adding a jolt to your system. 4. High-Glycemic Foods The blood sugar plays an important role in the hormone levels, the High glycemic foods can disrupt the balance. Foods such as white bread, sugar and fruit juice to increase insulin levels and change the way estrogen is metabolized. 5. Soy Soy contains phytoestrogen. It often mimics the body’s naturally occurring hormone functions. Also, they may have a negative impact on the thyroid as they suppress its function, and the thyroid needs to stay healthy in order to control the women’s hormones . Thyroid hormones regulate heart rate, balance blood pressure, maintain body temperature and maintain the appropriate metabolic rate for converting food to energy. The excessive soy consumption may have several negative health effects, for instance: infertility, weight gain, mood swings and also muscle loss. As a conclusion, eating the right foods will make your life easier and you will feel great

Gluteus Medius Muscle - Develop Your Upper Butt Shelf
 
04:34
The #1 Exercise to Develop a Rounder Stronger Butt https://www.criticalbench.com/growth/unlock-glutes It's time to GET SERIOUS about developing that Upper Butt area. It's not going to happen (at least not optimally) by doing your traditional squats, lunges and deadlifts. YES, we love those exercises for overall leg strength and development but this video is talking about working that Gluteus Medius or UPPER butt muscle. Science shows that this muscle is best stimulated by doing abduction movements like this. The glute med is also a stabilizer for the hips/pelvis but its main function is to bring the leg away from the midline. So your training should reflect that if you want maximal gains and a booty shelf. Check out this video to see a variety of exercises that will deliver some serious results and build that upper butt. Sure, squats and lunges will help hit those glutes but if you want MAX gains, you need to isolate the muscles, just like bodybuilders do for their arms, shoulders, or calves. We have a ton of amazing glute videos on the CriticalBench channel, here are some more of them: https://youtu.be/D4YHHX-hstQ https://youtu.be/9LKgifOdtJw https://youtu.be/B9l4N9IU8sg === FREE pdf - 5 Minute Glute Workout http://www.criticalbench.com/glutes Subscribe to Our Channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=criticalbench Follow us on Instagram (@thecriticalbench): https://www.instagram.com/thecriticalbench/ Subscribe to the Critical Bench Compound Channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=gymexercises --- Some References Prevalence of gluteus medius weakness in people with chronic low back pain compared to healthy controls.- Eur Spine J. 2016 Apr;25(4):1258-65. doi: 10.1007/s00586-015-4027-6.

8 Best Band Exercises for Mass (DON’T IGNORE THESE!)
 
08:56
Build ripped muscle mass with bands and weights here… http://athleanx.com/x/bands-and-weights Some think that resistance bands are not an effective way to build muscle mass. That couldn’t be more inaccurate. In this video, I show you the 8 best band exercises for packing on size and strength by focusing on the small muscles that are critical to getting you there. You see, so many people pay all of their attention on the big muscles when trying to get big muscles not realizing that the small muscles are the ones that need to be strong in order to allow the bigger ones to grow. Stabilizer muscles play a critical role in releasing the restraints on larger muscles by ensuring stability and safety of the exercises that we rely on to build strength and mass. If you take the bench press for example, you see that in order to execute a safe rep of this chest mass builder you need to have adequate stability of the shoulder blade. If your shoulder or scapula is unable to be stabilized throughout the press you not only will see a decrease in the amount of force that can be generated by your upper body but you will also likely get injured. Band exercises and resistant band workouts are a great way to ensure that the small muscles are strong enough to provide the stability critical to the bigger muscles function. Here we cover 8 of the best band exercises and show how each one can increase muscle size through it’s key supportive role. The 8 best band exercises are: Band pull aparts Face pulls Serratus punches Over and backs Tubing jack hammers Overhead side steps Resisted hip hinge Oblique corkscrews The first 5 of these tubing exercises work the all important stability of the shoulder girdle. In order to get maximum force production and strength from the upper body (not to mention ensure safety) you have to be sure your scapula is stable. These exercises work the rhomboids, lower traps and rotator cuff muscles to help provide the stability needed for big upper body lifts and presses. The next 2 exercises focus on the stability of the hips. The hips are big muscles but rely on the strength of the smaller, lesser talked about muscles to operate at their strongest. We cover two band exercises for getting at those smaller muscles that will allow you to unleash some serious lower body strength in your workouts. Finally, we hit the obliques as they are one of the most important core muscles we have. With this diagonal orientation, these muscles are geared for rotation and power but only if they are trained properly. The band exercises allow us to really target the obliques perfectly and develop the strength needed to develop a ripped core. For a complete program that helps you to build ripped athletic muscle with bands and weights, be sure to head to http://athleanx.com and get the ATHLEAN-X Training System. Every workout is laid out step by step, using the right equipment at the right time for the right exercise to get the most out of your workouts in the next 90 days.

What Is Active Insufficiency of Muscle?
 
03:35
Active insufficiency is a term applied to a multijoint muscle. It occurs when a multi-joint muscle reaches a length where it can no longer apply effective force. Watch the video to find out more about what this term means, and for different examples of how it occurs with differnt muscles of the body, including the hamstrings, the gastrocnemius of the calf, and the finger flexors. Passive insufficiency, not covered in this video, is the inability of a multi-joint muscle to lengthen to a degree that allows full range of motion of all the joints it crosses simultaneously. An example of passive insufficiency would be short hamstrings, which results in the inability of the muscle to normally elongate to the degree that properly combined hip flexion and knee extension can occur, which is required for all sports.

The Best Science-Based Back Workout (TARGET EVERY MUSCLE!)
 
09:28
In this video I discuss the best back training workout that utilizes exercises for a big back, as well as exercises for a wider back based on current scientific literature and our anatomical understanding of the back muscles. It’s important that you not only choose the right exercises when performing a back workout for mass, but to also perform these exercises in the correct fashion to target the right muscles. If you’re looking to add more mass, depth, and width to your upper back and lower back while targeting muscles that are important for scapular and shoulder stability, then this is the best back workout video for you. Within the video I’m going to discuss 5 exercises that I believe are essential to grow a powerful and attractive looking back: the deadlift, pull-up, chest-supported row, lat pulldown, and scapular pull-up. I will go through each of these exercises and show the muscle anatomy worked in each exercise, as well as the best variations of these exercises based on current research. It’s also equally important that you are targeting the right back muscles when you perform each of these exercises. I discuss a few “cues” and tips that have helped me minimize the involvement of secondary muscles and focus on using my back throughout each movement. Don’t forget to give the video a like and leave a comment if you enjoyed it and found it useful!

How to Grow Your Biceps Peak (4 Science-Based Tips)
 
07:14
Building a well-shaped, and prominent bicep peak seems to be a priority for many lifters. And although you’ll here a lot of people say that it all comes down to “bicep peak genetics”, this is only partially true. Those with shorter muscle bellies generally are able to to develop a more prominent biceps peak. And those with longer muscle bellies will have arms that appear fuller but will have a less pronounced peak as a consequence. Regardless, you can still dramatically increase and grow your peak. But to understand how to best grow it, we have to understand what actually creates it. The biceps peak is actually created by the long head, which is physically “pushed up” by the brachialis. Thus, an optimal bicep peak workout is one that targets the long head and the brachialis. In this video I’ll show you guys 4 science-backed tips, including various bicep peak exercises, that will help you grow your peak and fuller looking arms. BICEPS PEAK ARTICLE (BUILTWITHSCIENCE): https://builtwithscience.com/bicep-peak-workout/ You can browse around my website and read the articles I do have up (I’ll be adding more articles on a regular basis).

Top 3 Rotator Cuff Exercise Mistakes (FIX YOUR SHOULDER PAIN!)
 
07:09
Fix your shoulder pain by working out like an athlete here http://athleanx.com/x/fix-your-shoulder-pain The rotator cuff muscles are the most overlooked and misunderstood shoulder muscles and are usually ignored in most workout programs. When you realize that these small muscles are the only ones you have to counteract the overwhelming imbalance established by the more attention getting chest, back, and arms, you start to see their importance. In this video, I show you the top 3 biggest rotator cuff exercise mistakes and how to fix them. You see, even when people do buy into the concept of incorporating these exercises into their workout programs it doesn’t mean that they get them right. First, when performing any band or dumbbell external rotation exercise for your shoulder, you have to be sure to keep your elbow and upper arm tucked closely to your side throughout. Very commonly, people tend to let their elbow drift away from their body as they complete the external rotation range of motion. This activates the lateral deltoid which quickly tends to dominate the movement. The problem with this is that an overactive delt is a major contributor to the imbalance that already exists between it and the rotator cuff muscles on that arm. Allowing the deltoid to dominate the strength balance will lead to a migration of the humeral head upwards as you raise your arm overhead (as in a shoulder press). To keep the humerus centrally located in the glenoid fossa you need to have adequate strength of the rotator cuff. You will do this only if you don’t allow it to be overshadowed when doing isolated external rotation rotator cuff exercises. The second mistake is performing your rotator cuff exercises with a rounded shoulder. Round shoulders come from poor posture. Strengthening your rotator cuff muscles with poor posture is only reinforcing the issue you have already. To do this correctly, you have to align your shoulders back and down and then perform your rotator cuff exercises. Continuing on this point and leading into the third mistake, control of your shoulder blade will help dramatically. To position your shoulder blades “in your back pocket”, you’ll need to have adequate strength of both your serratus anterior and lower traps muscles. In the video, I show you two exercises you can do to strengthen these indirect shoulder muscles using as little as your own bodyweight. The bottom line is, in order to have a fully functional shoulder without shoulder pain you need to strengthen your shoulder completely. This means making sure your rotator cuffs are strong. If you are looking for a workout program that can help you with your shoulder pain while allowing you to build much bigger shoulders, chest and arms…be sure to head to http://athleanx.com and get the ATHLEAN-X Training System.

You can't reveal great abs just by getting lean; you have to train them like any other muscle group! Try this 15-minute ab workout for the best results of your life. Sales & Specials ► http://bbcom.me/2ef959t ========================================­===== I lead a busy life. Despite the fact that I spend a good chunk of my time in the gym when preparing for photo shoots, I can't live in the weight room 24/7. Just like you, I have other things to do, people to see, and a social life to fully enjoy. That's why I'm sharing this time-saving, highly effective ab circuit. You'll likely be done in 15-20 minutes, but it'll give you the sensation of a killer workout when you finish! In fact, this training session is so effective that I often begin my daily workout with it, or some similar variation. The circuit consists of only four exercises, but before you begin, I recommend you gather all of the equipment you'll need—such as a stability ball and ab roller—so you're ready to hit each movement in quick succession, without rest. Ready to give your abs the greatest pump of your life? Let's grow! HANGING LEG RAISE This is a tough lower-ab exercise. You'll feel what I mean soon! Find a bar to hang from, and while keeping your upper body stable, bring your legs up so they end up above parallel to the ground. Since you'll be hanging, all of your core stabilizer muscles will fire to keep you from swaying too much. Keep your elbows unlocked and engage your core to also keep yourself steady. You can either do this with your legs extended or knees bent, but the former adds a greater challenge. If you want to ramp up the difficulty even further, you can hold a dumbbell between your feet as you perform each rep. I even do them to the sides to target the obliques as well.

10 Best Resistance Band Exercises to Build Muscle (Target Every Muscle!!)
 
07:42
FREE Physique Quiz ► https://goo.gl/KykX7t FREE Fat Burning/ Muscle Building PROGRAM ► https://value1.thebarbarianbody.com/optin ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Today I’ll be walking you through 10 of the absolute best resistance band exercises to help you build muscle fast! Resistance band exercises are an awesome way to provide your muscles with a new stimulus to promote continued growth; both with their unique ability to increase tension towards the peak of a movement, and also due to the muscle stabilization requirements. On most pressing exercises, the peak of our strength curve (the point when a weight is bio-mechanically it’s most difficult to lift) is at the very bottom of the exercise. A squat or bench press for example are often most difficult from the point when you’ve brought the bar as far down as you can go, and are then required to lift the weight back up. The top ½, or the “lockout” phase, of this exercise is much easier compared to the bottom portion. By incorporating use of a resistance band, we’re able to add difficulty to that last ½ of the exercise. This is caused by the amount of increased resistance upon further stretching a band. The further you stretch the band, the more effort is required to keep stretching it further. The bottom of the lift will still be as difficult as it’s always been, but now, we’re going to increase the amount of difficulty at the top of the lift and actually make that portion more difficult than we’ve become accustomed to. This change will provide our muscles with the shock they need to stimulate more growth. Also, the amount of stabilization required by our muscles when using a resistance band is going to be an added factor as well. Every resistance exercise requires a certain degree of muscle stabilization in order to perform the movement. Our muscles are going to require much more stabilization effort when presented with a load such as a resistance band; due to its increasing difficulty from an increase in the stretch of the band. That is, compared to the consistent amount of load presented from simply lifting a dumbbell or barbell. This is great because a higher volume, and more unique firing of muscle fibre is going to be required in order to stabilize the resistance band; a process called micro oscillation (especially if we provide an isolation hold at the peak contraction of our muscles). This as well, will be a terrific method for providing the muscles with new stimuli to promote consistent muscular growth. The resistance band exercises are as follows: 1. Band Face Pulls (Traps + Rear Delts) 2. Band Push-Ups (Chest) 3. Band Pull Throughs (Glutes/ Hamstrings) 4. Band Oblique Corkscrew (Obliques) 5. Band Tricep Extensions (Triceps) 6. Band Front Squat (Quads, Glutes…Lowerbody) 7. Band Bent Over Rows (Upper Back + Lower Back…with iso hold) 8. Band Shoulder Press 9. Band Bicep Hammer Curls (Biceps) 10. Band Hamstring Curls (Hamstrings) And there you have it; 10 of the best resistance band exercises to help you constantly provide new ways to shock your muscles into growth! Whether you only have access to resistance bands at home, or are simply looking for new exercises to add to your arsenal…there you are, 10 of my absolute favourite resistance band exercises!

7 Essential Lifting Cues for Bigger Gains!! (SAFER)
 
11:15
Train harder and smarter - http://athleanx.com/x/train-like-an-athlete Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW Lifting cues can be some of the most helpful techniques and lifting tips or some of the least helpful, depending on the cue. For example, you may have been told that you have to keep your shoulders back during a bench press. If the cue has been to pinch your shoulder blades or even to retract your scapula, then you likely aren’t getting it right. Pinching your blades alone is not going to fix the all important thoracic extension lack that is making the rounded shoulders more prevalent. In this video, I’m covering not just the right cue for that situation but the seven best for virtually every lift to hope you get more out of them. Going back to this situation the better cue would be to lift your sternum or chest bone. If you imagine the top of your sternum as the rim of a glass of water you would want to make sure that your glass didn’t tip forward and spill out the water. If you lift your sternum to level off the glass and avoid tipping, you won’t just fix your shoulder posture but you will get your shoulder blades to sit back and down against your rib cage rather than artificially pinched. The next best cue you can use when lifting is to pull with your elbows when doing any pulling exercise for your back. For example, if you are doing a lat pulldown or even a pullup, the best way to initiate the movement is by concentrating on the movement of the elbows. They should be the driver of the lift rather than the hands. This is easier said however as we tend to focus on the hands and what we are holding when we move our arms. This sets up the likelihood that you will pull too much with your forearms and too little with the muscles you are trying to work. For the lower body, particularly with squats and deadlifts where people encounter pain in their knees hips and back from having flat feet, you will want to push out with your ankles. This is a great way to dynamically fix your arch and create a better alignment of the lower leg during the descent. Since this is one big kinetic chain, a better alignment here will put the knees, hips and lower back in a better position to operate safely. Moving on, two other issues in the lower body are to squeeze your cheeks to finish hip extension and to hide your hands when trying to establish a proper hip hinge on your lifts. Each of these is crucial to mastering the mechanics of the pelvis and lumbar region when lowering your body to the floor in any leg movement or even thruster. Finally, learn to squeeze the bar or dumbbells when lifting. This is often something that is overlooked and it is costing you energy that could be directed through your hands and into your arms for more upper body stabilizer activity. Experiment with this in your very next set of any upper body exercise and you will feel the difference on your very first rep.

Best Exercises for the Serratus Anterior
 
05:26
How To Build The Serratus Anterior Muscle. Total Fitness Bodybuilding Workout App: http://leehayward.com/app Free Bodybuilding Diet Plan: http://leehayward.com/diet Follow me on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/total.fitness.bodybuilding The serratus anterior muscles looks like fingers pointing from your ribs. When your bodyfat is low enough (i.e. single digit bodyfat percentage) you'll be able to see them and they can give a really sharp look to your overall muscular definition. The main purpose of the serratus muscles is to protract your shoulder blades forwards. So anytime you do pressing and fly movements for your chest you'll also engage the serratus. The serratus anterior comes into play as stabilizer and supporting muscles for a lot of your core bodybuilding exercises such as overhead presses, pull downs, bench presses, dips, push ups, etc. They also get worked when you do abdominal exercises such as planks. So even if you don't purposely try and focus on building up your serratus, they will get worked indirectly as a result of just getting bigger and stronger all over. However, there are some movements that you can do that will directly focus on these muscles. How To Build The Serratus Anterior Muscle: One of the best exercises you can do for your serratus anterior muscles is the Pull Over. Now there are different variations of pull overs and each of them will work the muscles slightly differently. Cross Bench Dumbbell Pull Over: This exercise is a good stretching movement for the chest, serratus, and lats. High Pulley Cable Pull Over: This exercise is a good peak contraction movement, when you do this you'll really feel a good muscular contraction in the lats and serratus anterior. Pull Over Machine - (i.e. Nautilus Pull Over): This is by far my personal favorite pull over variation because it provides a full stretch and full peak contraction. And where it's a machine exercise it forces you to keep your form strict and allows you to lift heavy weights safely. If you have access to a pull over machine at your gym, I highly recommend it as a staple in your training.

In the upper arm and shoulder, there are so many important muscles that allow you to move your upper limb. Ready to test your knowledge on those muscles? Check out our quiz: https://khub.me/n3r0p Oh, are you struggling with learning anatomy? We got the ★ Ultimate Anatomy Study Guide ★ to help you kick some gluteus maximus in any topic. Completely free. Download yours today: https://khub.me/jnk1m On this anatomy video tutorial, we will be covering the muscles found in the upper arm and the shoulder. Essentially, we will be exploring those muscles attached to the scapula and the humerus. These muscles are responsible for many important functions of the upper limb. Without them, we would not be able to move our arms as easily as we can. These muscles are also responsible for defining the surface anatomy of the upper arm and shoulder. For example, the deltoid is the muscle responsible for the definition of our shoulders. In this tutorials, we will focus on the origins and insertions of the following muscles will be discussed: 1:39 Biceps brachii, including its two heads: long head and short head. 2:40 Brachialis 3:35 Anconeus 4:02 Triceps brachii, including its three heads: long head, medial head and lateral head. 7:00 Coracobrachialis 7:47 Deltoid 8:52 Teres major 9:26 Rotator cuff muscles: supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis.

How to Fix Wrist Pain | Working Out (6 WAYS!)
 
09:38
Build muscle and end joint pain - http://athleanx.com/x/athlete Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW Wrist pain during workouts is one of the most common joint ailments you can experience. In this video, I’m going to show you how to fix workout related wrist pain by going over the best ways to address joint and muscle causes as well as things you can do on specific exercises. To start, I think it is beneficial to try and pinpoint where in your wrist you are feeling pain. For example if you feel wrist soreness on the back side of your wrist in the area of the carpal bones, then you are likely dealing with an impingement or joint immobility issue rather than a muscular one. Here you would want to incorporate the joint mobilization for your wrist to help restore normal extension. This simple wrist mobilization is one that you can do yourself with no equipment at all. Simply squeeze your wrist with your thumb and forefinger and distract that carpal bones just enough to clear the end of the radius. From here, glide the wrist radially and move your wrist into extension by pushing the hand palm down into a bench. You should not experience pain when you do this. Do it for a few reps and then retest your range of motion and you should notice that it has improved significantly. If on the other hand your discomfort is more on the underside of your forearm and tends to run up and down the forearm when your wrist is bent backwards, then this is more indicative of a muscle tightness. Here you don’t only want to just stretch the muscles of the forearm by bending your wrist back and keeping your fingers straight but you want to manipulate the tissues themselves with some myofascial release. You can do this by pressing your forearm into a solid surface (like a squat rack upright) and then flossing the muscles through the compressed area by moving the wrist around in circles as well as back and forth into flexion and extension. Do this until you feel the pain subside in your forearms. The next step once you have addressed the type of pain that you feel in your wrists when working out is to identify the specific exercises that you get soreness in when you lift. The most common ones that I covered in this video are the bench press, pushups, bicep curls and the front and back squats. Each one of them demands a little something different than the others and therefore must be addressed individually. Through some fine tuned careful changes in the position of the grip or the placement of the bar in your hands, you will see that you are able to correct the pain that you are feeling without diminishing the effectiveness of the exercises. This is the same approach that we use that has led to ATHLEAN-X becoming the go to choice for professional athletes in their training and workouts. We not only show you how to make gains in muscle size and how to lose fat but we put the science into everything we do and keep a priority on doing it safely so you can keep lifting at a high level for a long period of time. You can get the program by visiting http://athleanx.com and selecting from our various workouts based on your individual training goals.

The Official Bench Press Check List (AVOID MISTAKES!)
 
10:35
Train like an athlete step by step - http://athleanx.com/x/athlete Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW The bench press is one of the most classic powerlifting lifts you can add to your chest workout. That said, it is one of the most complex simply because there are so many places in the lift that you can go wrong. In this video, I created a check list to give your helpful reference for each of the most important places in the lift that you will want to get right so you can increase your gains and keep your joints safe in the process. As a physical therapist, one of my biggest concerns will always be the long term safety of a movement as well as the risk to reward ratio of performing the lift. In the case of the bench press, this is one of the most fundamental power moves that all athletes and novice lifters should master. There are plenty of things that can go wrong however, and the joints like the shoulders, wrists, elbows and even your back can become vulnerable if you don’t get it right. The first thing you need to note is where you are going to be doing the bench press in the first place. Ideally, you’ll have access to a power rack that you can set up a bench in and have the appropriate pins in place to catch the bar should you fail. If doing it here, you will also want to put the clips on the ends of the bar for added safety. If you are training at home however, the clips might be best left off the bar just in case you get stuck under the bar and need a way to dump the weights to get out from under it. Next the alignment of the bar in the rack and the bench on the bar is crucial to setting up a good lift. Simple enough, but make sure that everything is centered before laying back on the bench. Next look up at the bar and ensure that your eyes are at the same height as the bar itself. This will set you up for a good liftoff from the rack. Along the same lines, you want to be sure that your bar holders are not too high or too low. If you arms are fully extended as you reach up for the bar then you are set too high and will have no leverage when it comes to lifting the bar out of its resting position. Next focus on the position of your feet and your chest before initiating the liftoff. Your feet need to be under your knees in order to be able to contract the glutes during the movement and add to your pushing power on the bench press. If they are too far out in front of you, much of your pushing power will be lost before you even begin. Likewise your chest must be arched. This establishes a stable base of your shoulder blades pushing down and into the bench, which will act as a counterforce for the bar as you press it in the opposite direction. Lift the bar and tighten the abs as you lower it down to the chest. The bar path is crtiical. Make sure it is traveling down and forward and not just straight down. This will be more easily accomplished by keeping your elbows tucked closer to your sides, about 75 degrees away. At the end of your set, fully straighten the elbows and then slowly allow the bar to travel backwards towards the catches. From here, lower the bar once it has engaged the rack and you’re done. A perfectly executed bench press set. Let the chest gains begin, and let the healthy shoulders and joints continue!

P90X2 - P90X2 Workouts

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GSBMW2Y/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00GSBMW2Y&linkCode=as2&tag=watsolpan-20&linkId=SQSWUDSYKLLHR2RJ ____________________ P90X2 Workouts: P90X2 Core The core is your body's foundation: the point where all movement begins. By working your core using instability, you force your body to fire both its prime mover and stabilizer muscles in harmony. As you master this routine, all of your movement patterns will improve. P90X2 Plyocide Combines traditional explosive movements with mind and coordination drills to increase not only your speed and endurance, but your entire mind/body connection, as well. Don't do this one more than once per week. P90X2 Recovery + Mobility You learned with P90X that your body only grows stronger while at rest after it has been challenged. The P90X2 Recovery + Mobility workout takes this a step further by not only enhancing recovery, but also forcing your body to realign to promote better overall functionality. The key is a myofascial release technique called foam rolling. Expect to get a whole new understanding of the phrase, "hurts so good." This workout also provides you with a complete stretching routine for those days you prefer to work without the foam roller. P90X2 Total Body Combines resistance and instability to ensure that your body uses the correct muscles in the given movement. Old school isolation movements that can lead to muscular imbalance not welcome here. In this workout you'll earn every repetition, and form is king. P90X2 Yoga Yoga's traditional benefits of relaxing the body and restoring the mind are present but will take a back seat to increasing isometric power, improving your range of motion, and building vital stabilizer muscle strength. This is yoga, X2 style. Yoga is a fountain of youth and to us, staying young means staying strong and supple. P90X2 Balance + Power The moves in this workout force core rigidity under duress by incorporating strength and explosive movements. As you improve your body's connection between balance and power, your body alignment will improve, nagging aches and pains will lessen, and you'll be able to push far beyond the limits you once thought you had. P90X2 Chest + Back + Balance The same mega pump that was P90X Chest & Back now gets an added bonus, an array of unstable platforms designed to make your body earn its muscle. As you improve at this workout, your strength gains will be superior to those made with any traditional weight-training workout. P90X2 Shoulders + Arms Shoulder instability leads to an assortment of injuries experienced by many of us as we age. By keeping our shoulders and arms strong and in balance, we can avoid breakdowns. And that, along with looking good in short sleeved shirts, is the philosophy behind the creation of X2 Shoulders + Arms. P90X2 Base + Back Working the body's two largest groups of muscles in one workout may seem sadistic but most people seem to find this pull-up and plyo extravaganza very entertaining. It's the sweatiest "weight training" workout you'll ever endure, uh . . . experience. P90X2 P.A.P. Lower P.A.P. stands for Post-Activation Potentiation, but all you really need to know is that it is the cutting-edge technique that translates into performance. Two four-round complexes of seemingly straightforward movements don't look like much on paper but these workouts have destroyed the fittest athletes on the planet. The same ones who swear by them just as soon as they finish swearing at them. Just wait 'til you see what they can do for you. P90X2 P.A.P. Upper The same complex training format as P.A.P. Lower but this time focused on your upper body. Remember when you were a kid and bounced around jumping fences and climbing trees? Post-Activation Potentiation training will bring back your youth. Over time you'll feel loose, springy, and young. P90X2 Ab Ripper "I hate it. But I love it." Squared. Tony takes you through a series of core movements that'll upgrade your concept of what an ab workout is supposed to be.

Whether you’re doing strength training for women or bodybuilding for men, the same general rules apply. Be consistent with your fitness model. Stick to your workout plan, do your best each time, and strive to make improvements along the way. Don’t assume that heavy lifting is necessary to build strength, tone up, and achieve weight loss. You can burn fat and lose weight with basic exercises such as bicep curls, deadlifts, squats, ab exercises, butt workouts and lower body exercises, as well as doing a circuit that incorporates cardio, HIIT, or TABATA. You can get a great full body workout at the gym or do home strength training. Home workouts are just as effective as gym workouts as long as you find a routine that works for you. Online workout videos are a great way to increase motivation and get a great workout at home. Diet is crucial, so make sure to keep it clean by eating healthy, whole foods that contain plenty of nutrients to give you the energy you need to burn fat and build muscle effectively while boosting your metabolism. Protein, healthy fats, and fiber will keep you full longer and help you build lean muscle. Listen to your body and do what works for you. Don’t assume that you have to follow the most ripped bodybuilder or trainer you see. You don’t have to lift or bench a million pounds or join Crossfit to get fit and healthy. Fitness is personal, so try different things to build your power, strength, and balance. You can start with quick and easy routines that use bodyweight / no weights and are low impact, then gradually build up to more intense routines that incorporate weight lifting and even cardio HIIT with weights. Ultimately, you have to experiment by combining many elements into a fitness blender and eventually you will tone it up and slim it down, sculpting your best body ever while living a healthier, happier life! © GymRa 2013.

You might feel it in your lower back or your shoulder but you find yourself thinking did I do something wrong or does this exercise just suck. Well it really isn't always you. There are a lot of exercises out there that are plain bad for you & they only continue to exist just because they've been passed down from one misinformed gym to the next, & noones been smart enough to realize that these common exercises are no good. So today we're going over 10 exercises that all men should avoid & these exercises aren't only exclusive to men. Women should avoid these exercises as well it's just that in this video we'll be sticking to exercises that i usually find men doing wrong. The very first one that I want to start with is actually a group of exercises that guys are drawn to like moths to a flame. I'm talking about all the selectorizor ab machines at your local gym. The machines that you usually start by sitting down pulling out the pin, selecting your weight, then grabing some handles behind your head & doing crunches. These machines are not only a waste of time but they are also dangerous for your lower back. All these selectorizor ab machines are locked into a range of motion, meaning that your joints & your disks can't travel down their natural path, you can only travel down the path that the machine has set for you. Even if you adjust the machine to your body perfectly, which by the way is very hard to do, but even if you somehow had a machine customized for your body you can still easily run into lower back issues because you're still locked in a set range of motion throughout the entire exercise. Besides a greater potential for a lower back injury you will also get significantly less results from these machines than if you stuck to regular ab exercises like crunches, hanging knee tucks, & declined situps. The reason is once again due to the fact that your locked into a range of motion. The core's main responsibility is stabilization. And it's important to improve your functional core strength because your core isn't only responsible for stabilizing your trunk but it stabilizes your whole body. It is the bridge that connects your lower body to your upper body. When you're locked in a range of motion you take all of the stabilization normally required for ab exercises out of the movement. The really ironic part is that those abdominal stabilizer muscles that you're not working on these machines are very important to strengthen in order to prevent the lower back injury that you'll likely experience on one of these machines. Due to the fact that you're not working your stabilizers you're missing out on all of those deep tissue abdominal muscles like your transverse abdominus & your only targeting mostly your rectus abdominus which is the very outer layer six pack looking muscle. The transverse abdominus is very important to work because not only does it help prevent injury, but it also pulls your stomach in keeping everything nice & tight giving you that flat stomach look. If you want to make your ab exercises tougher use weights by simply holding a dumbbell or a plate either behind your head or accross your chest while doing regular traditional ab exercises. Once again if you don't know where to start start with exercises like stability ball crunches, declined situps, & hanging knee tucks. The next exercise you should avoid is the behind the head shoulder press. First off there is absolutely no advantage to going behind your head. None. Even though I'm sure some old school guys will be disagreeing with me in the comments below you can research this yourself & you'll find that when you go behind the head you're still targeting the same muscles that you would if you went in front of your head & there's no advantage when going behind your head that will allow you to build your shoulder muscle faster.
How to Fix Scapular Winging (STEP BY STEP!)
 
15:23
Reprogram your body here - http://athleanx.com/x/body-reset Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW If you want to know how to fix scapular winging you first have to know how to assess it. In this video, I give you a step by step approach for fixing scapular winging and show you the exact stretches and exercises that will help you the fastest to do this. The scapulae (or shoulder blades) are good indicators of the health of your shoulder since they are directly part of the socket joint of the shoulder. If you have a movement dysfunction in your shoulder blades then you can be assured of the fact that your shoulder itself will not operate properly. The first thing you want to do is look at how your shoulder blades move as you raise your arms up overhead and straight out in front of you. Have somebody video you so you can watch for the flaws after the fact. Look for a slight head nod to either side, a slightly elevated shoulder on one side, or a protrusion of one or both shoulder blades as you raise or lower the arms back down. Here, Jesse is demonstrating all of these. You might also see a bunching up of the shoulder blades as you raise up which could be an indicator of tight rhomboids. If any of these is present you will want to perform the stretches shown for 45-60 seconds. Stretches for the levator scapula and rhomboids are shown and would need to be done for each of the sides that is affected. The key, as with any stretch, is the consistency with which you perform it. Aim for at least 4-5 times per week of 3-5 reps at a time on the sides that are affected. The next thing to do is assess what your posture looks like in standing from both sides as well as the front. Again, you can either have someone take a picture of you in each position or just stand in front of a mirror and look for yourself. What you are looking for here is a pronounced rounding of one shoulder or both as well as a shoulder that seems to droop down more than the other. Tightness in the internal rotators of the shoulder (particularly subscapularis) as well as the lats and pec minor can be major causes of this. Here are videos in which I show you how to stretch each of these areas in depth. How to Stretch Your Chest (AND HOW NOT TO!) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SV7l1sfEmO0 Rotator Cuff Stretches (The Ones You REALLY Need!) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kL3cIDFUafU How to Stretch Your Lats (BEST STRETCH EVER!) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6V5tSn9oEJg The key is that when these muscles are tight, impingement of the long thoracic nerve can become more probable. When this happens, the muscles that it attaches to (the serratus anterior) can become weak and cause the scapular winging to occur. Here, no matter how much strength training and exercises you do for the serratus, you will not fix the problem until the tight muscles are stretched and the compression is relieved. Finally, you will have a series of serratus anterior exercises that you can perform to start strengthening this muscle and correcting the position of the shoulder blades when moving your arms overhead. Don’t try and do all of the exercises shown. Instead, choose 2-4 of the them and aim to work them into a small routine 3 times per week in addition to your regular workouts to start correcting the imbalance. Remember, the focus should be on quality reps and not quantity. Aim to complete 20 sets of 1 rather than 1 set of 20. In time, you will see that you not only will fix your scapular winging dysfunction but will start realizing more pain free gains in your shoulders once again.

9 Exercises You Should NEVER DO AGAIN!
 
07:47
These are the Worst Exercises you should never do. Seriously, avoid these workout mistakes and you can save yourself from lower back, knee, and rotator cuff pain, not to mention shoulder impingement. Avoid these exercises 9 exercises. 🔥 FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d4f?utm_source=ytube&utm_term=again Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2oT9Kz2 In today's video I want to go over the eight worst exercises that you should never do again. Seriously never again let's jump right into this with the very first exercise tricep dips on a bench. I don't know why it took me so long to realize how bad this exercise really is. When doing tricep dips on a bench your putting excessive pressure on your rotator cuff by rotating their most internally rotated position and your even putting excessive pressure on your elbows just by planting your hands behind your back. No matter how many times I've done this exercise it always feels uncomfortable because you have multiple joints in compromised positions. There's a high chance that you can strain your rotator cuff and it's really difficult to properly load this exercise with weight so I highly recommend you skip out on this one. Instead try Skull Crushers with an EZ bar for a far better tricep workout. Another dangerous exercises you should stop doing right away is the lat pulldown behind the head. Although Im pleased to say I've been seeing this exercise done less and less unfortunately there still are a few people that continue doing this exercise. I dont know why, maybe theyve seen one too many Rocky movies and they just don't know how bad this exercise is for you. Now it's very important that you don't get this confused with regular lab pull-downs where you're pulling the bar in front of you because that's a great exercise. When you go behind the head you once again pudding a lot of stress on your shoulder joint more specifically the front of your shoulder joint. Not only are you externally rotating your arm really far back you're also horizontally abducting both you elbows in a very unnatural position to get the bar behind your head and neck. Once again a better alternative would be a regular lat pulldown or regular wide grip Pull-Ups. Another exercise that totally sucks is the leg extension machine. I mean think for yourself how often are you going to sit down and just extend your legs out. it's not a very functional exercise and for most people that are looking to get a great workout in the shortest amount of time possible there are far better exercises like squats for example. If you're using the leg extension machine to exhaust your quads at the end of your workout that's one thing but if you're the type of person that's moving from machine to machine and you go from the leg press machine to the leg extension machine to the leg curl machine you're going to be way better off just skipping all those machines and doing squats deadlifts lunges and actual functional exercises. Why do I recommend these exercises well because you're actually going to be building your stabilizer muscles and using your body's natural movement patterns in ways that can actually apply to the real world. Getting really strong at doing leg extensions even if you max out the stack pretty much means nothing. If you get really strong at barbell squats that can serve as a benefit to almost every sport and every functional activity....... Next on the list we have upright rows. This exercise is done to develop the shoulders and the traps. Barbell upright rows are worse for your shoulder joint than dumbbell upright rows because your hands are locked forcing you into an unnatural range of motion. However, both dumbbells and barbell upright rows can damage the shoulder joint. As you bring your arms up the upper arms will rotate internally in the shoulder. Without perfect form and very healthy shoulders you can easily cause an injury on any random rep. This risk isn't well warranted either. There are much better exercises for the shoulders such as Arnold presses, lateral raises, and frontal raises just to name a few. Another damaging exercise for the shoulders is behind the head shoulder presses. This damages the shoulders in all the same ways that going behind the head with lat pull downs does. Once again you are fully externally rotating your arms and putting extra strain on your neck when performing this exercise. On top of that studies suggest that there is no significant advantage to doing presses behind the head. In fact because you will probably have to lift less weight when going behind the head you may get less results than if you grabbed a heavier weight and just did regular military presses. Both regular barbell and dumbbell shoulder presses will work much better in place of this exercise. Next we have the smith machine.
Exercises To Help Close/Repair a Diastasis Recti 2 Abdominal Split Separation
 
08:03
More excellent exercises to help close your diastasis recti or recti split, which is a separation of the abdominal muscles cause by a weakened pelvic floor and core muscles. If you are a beginner and just discovered that you have a diastasis recti, please complete the exercises in my first video linked below before you add the exercises in this video to your routine. In my first video, you will also learn how to test yourself to see if you have a diastasis recti abdominal split. A diastasis recti split can occur in both men and women. In women this is often caused by pregnancy due to the expanding abdomen, and in men it is often caused by weight gain in the abdomen. The exercises I show you in this video will help strengthen and stabilize your core and are an excellent second step after you have mastered the exercises in my first video. This video will help you get your inner abdominals back into shape by strengthening your internal abdominal muscles or transverse abdominis; it's the body's most important core stabilizer and is responsible for re-flattening the abdominal wall after pregnancy. Here’s the link to my first video on Diastasis Recti: https://youtu.be/Ys7mb_PPuqA?list=PLFD0A271F52C872EE It is very important to know whether you have a diastasis recti split before you begin any abdominal exercise routine so that you do not further strain the split area. Please wait at least 6 weeks post-partum to do the exercises recommended in this video. They can be continued throughout life to maintain a strong core and flat stomach. I still perform them even though my split has closed many years ago. To see what a diastasis recti looks like, please click here to go to my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn6g8VFD8Kw&index=3&list=PLFD0A271F52C872EE Women who are planning to become pregnant or who have had a baby should be aware of this condition before they begin any ab workout routine.

One-Arm Cable Back Extensions for lower back and spinal stabilizer muscles
 
01:36
http://www.thebestbackexercises.com - this is a unique variation of the normal back extension exercise. You'll do it using a low pulley to provide direct lateral tension on the body (from one side only) as you perform the exercise. This works the stabilizing muscles of the spine by forcing them to counter the torque that the cable is putting on the torso. There is no twisting involved...just countering the tension. Very effective for improving spinal muscle strength and stability!
7 Core Exercises for Low Back Pain (IMPORTANT!)
 
08:28
Get ripped abs and a strong core training like an athlete http://athleanx.com/x/get-a-ripped-athletic-core-here Do you have low back pain or tight hip flexors and have been told you need to do more core exercises to get your core strong and get rid of your problems? If so, you need to watch this video and see the truth about ab and core training when it comes to lower back pain and lower body tightness. Your body craves stabilization, particularly in the area of the spine. If you have any type of instability in this crucial area, your body will find ways to compensate to create the strength that you lack. In the best case scenario, your abs and core would be providing the stability that your spine needs. Unfortunately, often times this is not the case. Weak core muscles and abs in particular can cause your body to seek out alternative muscles to provide the help that is sorely needed. The hip flexors are prime targets of this request. This becomes problematic since the hip flexors attach to the sides of your lumbar vertebrae. When these muscles tighten up in order to provide additional stability they begin to pull on the vertebra in your lower back and lead to imbalance and often times pain. The stabilization is there, but it’s not coming from the right muscles, and this is a problem. So, what are we told to do to rectify the back pain we are feeling from having tight hip flexors and a tight low back? We are told to stretch the muscles in our hips and lower back. This is a big problem and actually the exact opposite of what you need to do to overcome your problem. You have to stop looking solely at the site of the symptoms and instead look for the cause. In this case, you would have seen that the weak abs are a root of the issues you are having in your hip flexors and lower back. But it’s not that simple. Maybe you are told correctly that you have to get stronger abs and a strong core so you start doing all kinds of ab exercises to help you do that. Unfortunately, if you choose the wrong ab exercises (not that they are bad at all, they are just wrong for your particular condition) you could wind up making your lower back pain and hip flexor tightness worse. Many different ab exercises enlist the help of the hip flexors as a prime mover. This occurs a lot in lower ab exercises but can also occur in things as simple as the crunch. If you allow your ab training to include too many of these you will wind up simply over strengthening the hip flexors more and leads to a vicious cycle of more pain. Start following the ab and core exercise alternatives you see in this video for a great way to get a stronger core without overtaxing your hip flexors. There are plenty of options for you to do, just maybe not the ones you would have immediately thought of. Start with these and you will see how much more quickly your tightness will go away when your ab and core strength starts providing the stability your back was craving all along. The hip flexors and lower back will finally be able to take a much deserved break.

pushups exercise
 
02:30
The rectus abdominis and transversus abdominis contract continually while performing push-ups to hold the body off the floor and keep the legs and torso aligned. The rectus abdominis spans the front of the abdomen and is the most prominent of the abdominal muscles. The transversus abdominis lies deep within the abdomen, wrapping around the entire abdominal area. Both muscles compress the abdomen, and the rectus abdominis also flexes the spine forward, although it does not execute this function when performing push-ups. Deltoid[edit] The anterior portion of the deltoid muscle is one of the major shoulder-joint horizontal adductors, moving the upper arms toward the chest during the upward phase of a push-up. It also helps control the speed of movement during the downward phase. The deltoid attaches to parts of the clavicle and scapula, just above the shoulder joint on one end, and to the outside of the humerus bone on the other. Along with horizontal adduction, the anterior deltoid assists with flexion and internal rotation of the humerus within the shoulder socket. Chest Muscles[edit] The push-up requires many muscle groups, but the primary muscle groups are the chest muscles, the pectoralis major and minor. These are the two large chest muscles and mainly the pushing muscle group of the upper body. When pushing and lowering the body during a push up, the pectoralis major is doing most of the work. As a result, these muscles become very strong and can become defined lean muscle after doing push-ups regularly. Stabilizers: back body[edit] The push-up depends on stabilizer muscles as you push and lower the body. The erector spinae is the main stabilizer muscle in the back. Made up of 3 muscles including the spinalis, longissmus and iliocostalis. spinalis runs adjacent to the spine, the longissimus runs adjacent to the spinalis and the iliocostalis runs adjacent to the longissimus and over the ribs. 2 muscles called the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus stabilize the upper leg. The medius and minimus sit under the largest butt muscle, the gluteus maximus. Triceps brachii[edit] While the anterior deltoids and pectoralis major muscles work to horizontally adduct the upper arms during the upward phase of a push-up, the triceps brachii muscles, or triceps for short, are also hard at work extending the elbow joints so the arms can be fully extended. The triceps also control the speed of elbow-joint flexion during the downward phase of the exercise. The closer together the hands are placed during a push-up, the harder the triceps work. The muscle is divided into three heads — the lateral head, long head and medial head. The lateral and medial heads attach to the back of the humerus bone, and the long head attaches just behind the shoulder socket on one end; all three heads combine and attach to the back of the elbow on the other.[7] There is a special sub-set of the diamond push-up (so named for the diamond shaped space between the hands when the thumb and forefinger of the left hand is placed on the floor up against the thumb and forefinger of the right hand.) The special version of this push-up is when the diamond is placed directly below the nose instead of the solar plexus. The nose must almost touch the floor in the center of the diamond. This special diamond push-up is done by the United States Marine Corps. The lips must come within 1 inch of the floor while keeping the neck in line with the straight spine to qualify as a valid push-up. This can be verified by placing a 1 inch foam disposable earplug on the floor in the center of the diamond and picking it up with the lips. Forearms[edit] Stabilizers include wrist and forearm muscles, the knee extensors, and the hip/spine flexors which all work isometrically to maintain a proper plank position in the standard prone push-up. Biceps[edit] During the push-up exercise, the short head of the biceps brachii muscle acts as a dynamic stabilizer. This means the muscle activates at both ends—the elbow and the shoulder—to help stabilize the joints. Variations[edit] In the "full push-up", the back and legs are straight and off the floor. There are several variations besides the common push-up. These include bringing the th e muscles there.press up 100 pushups push up challenge push up exercise push up workout perfect pushups 100 pushups a day the perfect pushup power pushup handstand pushups incline push up push up form push up trainer push up routine push up muscles push up training push up program ultimate push up push up fitness push up guide hindu pushups 100 pushup challenge correct push up perfect press up exercise push up push up for men push up s push up for

How to Fix Knee Valgus (KNEES THAT CAVE IN!)
 
12:35
Train with me for 90 days - http://athleanx.com/x/my-workouts Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW If you have knees that cave in (a condition known as knee valgus) then you are going to want to watch this video. Whether your knock knees are present only during the bottom portion of a squat or are there all the time, you are going to want to fix them since leaving them alone is going to eventually wreak havoc on your body. The condition known as knee valgus refers to the inward pointing of the knees. This creates stress on the inside of the knee joint in the form of tensile gapping of the medial collateral ligament, and compression forces and stress on the outside of the joint. Because of the altered position of the knee joint, your movement is affected and the repercussions are often felt higher or lower in the body; namely in the ankles, hips or back. It is important to understand that the knee joint itself is a consequential joint. That means, that it is simply a hinge joint that is at the mercy of what is going on at the ankle below and the hip above. If the mobility or strength of the ankle is altered then the knee is going to be affected by the impact these changes have on the tibia (the lower half of the knee joint). If the hips are too tight or lacking the strength required to stabilize the femur (the upper half of the knee joint) then you are going to have problems at the knee as well. In this video, I show you how to ascertain whether you have issues in the ankle that you want to address. As you will see, the ankle is also affected by what happens at the foot. When you have flat feet or over pronated feet, the joints above are dramatically affected. It is important to understand the causes and the effects of flat feet in order to be able to intervene and do something about it so the normal knee motion and mechanics can be restored. Most of the time, flat feet will cause the ankle to cave inward and this drags the tibia along with it. The stress is immediately transmitted up to the knees in the form of a valgus. The peroneal muscles on the outside of the lower leg get adaptively shortened and tight from being in this position too long. They are not the cause of the pronation however. Their tightness is simply the result of the pronation so you want to make sure you strengthen these muscles as well. The muscles of the ankle that act as a stirrup that supports the joint are the peroneals and the posterior tibialis muscle. Both of these can be strengthened with the exercises for your ankle shown here with just a single band. Of course, you will want to stretch the peroneals as well and address the soft tissue changes that have caused tightness as shown with the two drills in the video. As for the hip, weakness of the external rotators and abductors is almost always the cause of troubles at the knee. Why is this? Because no matter how many squats we do, we are simply not addressing the rotation at the hip without paying attention to some of the smaller exercises that often get overlooked. This is critical. Here I show you an exercise to strengthen both the abductors of the hip without any equipment and an exercise for your hip rotators that requires just a band. Either of these can be done just a few times a week and you will see a dramatic improvement in the condition of your knee valgus. When you combine the drills for both the ankle and the hip together, watch as your knee positioning corrects itself and you start moving better than you ever have before. Your strength should improve as well since your body will finally be operating out of its desired alignment.

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR WORKOUT: PLANES OF MOTION
 
03:52
http://www.kaiwheeler.com If you are looking for guidance when it comes to exercise selection this video is for you! The primary objective of any workout program should be functionality, including exercises that translate to everyday activities. Many traditional exercise routines focus on isolating one muscle group at a time in one plane of motion. This is problematic because our bodies are designed to move in dynamic patterns utilizing prime movers, secondary movers and stabilizer muscles. If you overtrain one muscle group in one plane of motion you are not using your body as an integrated system of movers. The three planes of motion are sagittal, frontal and transverse. my tumblr: http://kaiwfit.tumblr.com twitter: https://twitter.com/kaiwfitness instagram: http://instagram.com/kaiwheeler facebook: https://www.facebook.com/kaiwheelerfitness song: Urban Vibes MUSIC BY BRANDON, FOLLOW HIM! http://www.ilovebrandon.net/ https://soundcloud.com/eyelovebrandon
