Are You Performing The Arm Across Body Stretch Correctly?
[How to Stretch Your Posterior Cuff]
TAG a friend who NEEDS this stretch❗️
A tight posterior cuff is associated with a handful of shoulder dysfunctions like subacrominal impingement syndrome, posterior impingement, anterior instability, etc. And thus, ⬇️ tone/increasing extensibility of the posterior cuff is part of the treatment protocol for many with shoulder pain. The cross-body stretch is a fantastic way to target the posterior cuff but far too often it is done INCORRECTLY.
‼️In order to effectively stretch the posterior cuff, you need to keep your SCAPULA STABILIZED ie your scapula CANNOT MOVE!‼️
❌If you pull your arm across your body and your scapula comes with it into horizontal abduction, the only stretch your getting is of your mid-scapular muscles like your rhomboids or traps. Furthermore, in this position there's more of a distraction force on the glenohumeral joint than a true stretch of the posterior cuff - aka not as specific as it can be.
✅First pull your shoulder blades back. This will keep your scapula in a retracted position. Only WHILE MAINTAINING THE POSITION OF YOUR SHOULDER BLADES BACK can you effectively target the posterior cuff. Pay attention to WHERE you feel the stretch, as you should feel a "deep stretch" in the back of your shoulder in the highlighted area on the video. If you feel a stretch or anything else not in the back of shoulder, you're either doing the stretch incorrectly or abutting other structures in your shoulder due to pathology (ie don't do the stretch anymore and seek out a physio if you're in pain).

Tough one tonight but happy with the #marginalgains
As a lover of statistical analysis you will see from the attached graph that on the trajectory of the past fortnight I will hit 8971m by #HRR 2019.
Watch out #tokyo2020 🤷🏻♂️
I heard I had a weakness, but I cant have that! None of that is allowed over here.

"I like the feeling of defeating the idea of what moms and wives are supposed to do. We are not slaves to our children. We are not slaves to our husbands...I feel accomplished for no one other than myself. That is powerful." // NEW BLOG with CrossFitter, middle school teacher, and mom Katelyn Haynes is up now! 💪 Katelyn is dedicated to showing her students how caring for your body can be the best thing you can do for yourself. Her blog covers:⠀
✨ how fitness runs in her family (so much so that her parents started their own CrossFit gym)⠀
✨ how she's learned to make time for herself with a busy schedule and two children at home⠀
✨ why it's important for her that her students realize that exercise isn't just for athletes⠀

The champ is back!! Kaylan is now a full time Badminton athlete and has this year to prove that he can go all the way!! Today we worked on some simple jumping drills progressing into more advanced variations, for most this would be challenging but Kaylan really excels in these areas. This means i have to find ways to keep him on his toes! In these videos you will see us focusing on how to produce the power in the jump and how to land, we have double and single leg drills and also linear and lateral movements!

Todays leg session was brutal I've never viewed myself as particularly talented of gifted, but I work very hard and pride myself on that. The challenge is to bring the intensity and to train as heavy as possible every session, skipping leg day is not an option ever!
1. Hacksquat 180kg
2. Squats 190kg for s single
There was plenty more involved in the leg session as always loads of volume. The physique is not complete without legs. The aim of bodybuilding is to build and sculpt a well rounded, aesthetic and complete physique.
This class last night was exactly what I needed. To be in a room full of athletes who want to change the world just as much as you do is truly an inspiration #nike#justdoit ・・・
It was such an amazing collaboration yesterday evening at Just Do It HQ @nikelosangeles.
Team R3bartraining is extremely thankful for the opportunity, to connect, share and train with some of LA’s finest.
Special thanks to all
of the coordinators, athletes, trainers, and movers that pulled up yesterday. You are all appreciated. Thanks for your involvement in an epic event!
The power of Fasting.
Eating couple huge meals and snacking fun foods at night are crucial to me while staying Lean all year round.
Many people believe you have to blindly follow a diet cult, restrict foods and macro groups or eat light at night etc to drop fat. Huge fkn myths. Fat loss is the result of eating smart at a calorie deficit.
If we can’t enjoy life, what’s the point of being fit?
