Got back from day 2 0f The Perform Better Conference in Long Beach and really needed to train tonight. Hit up LA Fitness in Torrance and cranked out. 8 solid rounds of bag work tonight! Felt Great!!! Sometimes nothing helps to lift a weary soul like a little aggressive training!
Side kick-throughs are very useful for training the whole body as one unit- you can use it as part of a movement flow, as in Animal Flow, or use it by itself as a stability exercise. One of the most common errors I see is the loss of rotary stability due to the hips and shoulders not moving together. Your hips will most likely want to move first as you start to rotate your body, especially if you are going fast. ⚪
A simple solution to this problem is to slow down the movement- keeping a slow and steady pace as you rotate from side to side will prevent you from rushing through the more challenging ranges. This concept can be applied to pretty much any lift for the purpose of maintaining control throughout the full range of motion and ironing out any weak points that you might have. Once you own the movement in slow motion, you can start to pick up the pace or increase load💪💪
Progress not perfection. But I’m happy in my own skin because I’ve made some pretty BIG changes in my life, gave up alcohol & mindless eating due to stress. ———
I sleep better, practice yoga equal to weights now, pray more, meditate more & focus on intuitively eating. I went from 148 lbs to 132 lbs in 38 days. ————
I still have some goals to meet but it’s for a balanced lifestyle not a physique competition. And I’ll meet them that’s FOR SURE.
Never give up on yourself y’all!!!
