Assisted Pull Ups

View this post on Instagram

A desirable look on your body for a lot of people is the wide/v shaped upper back. To engage these muscles you need to incorporate some vertical pulls into your training. One example of this is the assisted pull up. This is a regression of the popular pull up. This is the only machine in the gym where a heavier weight makes the exercise easier. The weight you select is the amount you will be 'assisted by' e.g. a 90kg male opting for 50kg means he is pulling 40kg rather than his whole bodyweight. Key takeaways for this exercise. Grip shoulder width or wider, keep your body in line underneath the bar, keep tension throughout in your shoulder blades. As you pull up, keep your chest high, imagine you are trying to pull your chest line up toward the bar. At the top of the movement you are looking for thoracic extension which means your upper back should be nice and flat with shoulders blades squeezed down and back (into your back pockets). The thoracic extension helps fully engage your lats (for the v) while putting tension through your mid traps and rhomboids which aids for good posture. While you lower down keep the tempo slow whilst keeping the tension through your shoulder blades and core #backday #pullups #backattack #lats #shoulderstability #exercise #tip #workout #saturday #preston #puregym #thoracic #squeeze #muscle #verticalpull #personaltraining #personaltrainer #onlinecoaching

How to Ball Slam Properly!

View this post on Instagram

The ball slam will be seen in most circuits, boot camps, PT sessions every day in every gym. It's a brilliant multi joint movement and it's great to get the heart rate up high. The video shows a couple of examples of how not to ball slam, this really is one of those exercises where you get out what you put in. I can help and coach technique and I can accept poor mobility etc But as a trainer/coach I cannot accept lack of effort and I can't physically make you do it. You have to want to. The first couple of examples are common, to either slam from chest height or to just drop the ball at full height without any real power/force generated. The second 2 examples are what ball slams should look like. There is effort, intensity and power in what I am trying to do. Remember turning up to your class, PT session or whatever it might be is brilliant but you also have to remember to turn up with energy and enthusiasm too! Even when you don't want to. As you can hopefully realise by now there is more to this post than ball slams… If you half arse a ball slam, it's likely you aren't fully invested into the rest of the stuff that contributes. Results don't just come from attending a class or paying a PT, they come when you turn up and give it everything. If you do that whilst being coached effectively and get it right at home too then you will undoubtedly get results… If you turn up half arsed… Well it's obvious what happens then… If you need help with any of the above then consider my INVEST IN YOU programme. I have just 2 spaces left… If you have the effort and enthusiasm but don't have the method, I can help you… DM me for more info. #ballslams #power #force #investinyou #results #goals #effort #energy #enthusiasm #personaltraining #class #exercise #workout #hiit #gym #puregym #preston #puregym #bootcamp #circuit
