• TREAD LIGHT • A snippet of what I’ve been playing with lately. I will be sharing this 3-5pm tomorrow as part of my 2hour session @tripdance_tripspace with London Movement Connection. There’s a few spaces left and would absolutely love to see you guys there. All levels welcome.
• More about the session : TREAD LIGHT TAKE FLIGHT If we can stand on our feet, why can’t we stand on our hands? This empowering session draws influences from traditional yoga asana as a point of departure to explore the delicate balance of weight and effort safely and efficiently through components of breathwork, partnerwork and improvisatory games. As a community, we will play with yielding on our feet, then our hands to gradually progress towards arm balances and inversions popularly termed as ‘flying’, ultimately finding lightness in movement and building self trust.

A grip and core conditioner to finish for @goosiferox this morning. Hanging Knee raises, carries and planks for the forearm gains💪🏼👊🏼
Very proud of the brudas and their achievements. 3 months of training in preparation for Metcon and Fittest Mum and together they've achieved some great results. Pretty good huh 😂. Well done awrsome people @brooke_amy_thomsen@victory_bridge@lizthomson21@firstname.lastname@example.org@tash_paora@ashelli0tt .
In all honesty alot work has gone into this from them as well as us. .
Holistically, these humans are where we want them to be. From a nutrition understanding they can manage and are well equipped to do it again. Training perspective they know and understand the levels of training where they need to be or more in order to produce the same results. .
The most exciting thing for me is, we are building a community to be well equipped, confident in all AREAS (Not just training or competing) DO better than us or do well in LIFE.#thatswinning4me

This is a GREAT gym exercise! Tried and tested. ・・・
💥Foundation Training is the ULTIMATE movement accessory💥Here’s another way to incorporate @foundationtraining into weight training. ISO DEADLIFTS WITH FOUNDERS 👉 Maybe you’re looking to improve your deadlift mechanics, or break through a strength plateau, maybe you just want to mix-up your back workout a bit, or maybe you’re tired of your joints feeling beat up after a workout. 👉 Try this FT infused workout that focuses on isometric and eccentric muscle contraction. Traditional weight training typically focuses on the concentric phase of muscle contractions... long to short. This sequence does the opposite, it focuses on the eccentric phase of muscle contraction (short to long) which teaches them how to lengthen under tension, properly stabilize, and and integrate into their intended muscular chain, which sets up a more powerful concentric contraction. 👉 Set-up... I like to set the safety brackets just above knee height and use these to pull the bar into to perform an ISO deadlift. 👉 Sequence... perform a 10 second Founder... a 10 second Overhand ISO Deadlift... another 10 second Founder... an Underhand ISO Deadlift... finish with a 10 second Founder. 👉 Tips... breathe expansively during each hold and recruit as many muscles as possible by trying to “bend the bar” with each grip and driving your heels through the floor. Keep your chin retracting straight back to recruit the SCM’s which help prevent rounding and to better stabilize the entire spine. In fact notice how much my SCM’s stay engaged the entire time. You can really see them fire during each breath 😉. For more of a challenge simply increase hold times. How much tension should you apply during ISO pulls? I like to work at a consistent 3/5 integrated tension for all 3 sets. 👉Perform 3-5 sets with a 1-2 min rest time between each set. Warning that last Founder is a mother! 🔥 Give it a try and let me know how it feels. #foundationtraining#posteriorchain#deadlift
