Happy Glenn Gould birthday to all the Gouldians and music lovers. This is the contrapunctus 4 of The Art of Fugue. The source is YouTube plus some minor edits.
A lot in my life to be smiling about. I have the support of my parents. I have the most adorable nephew and niece. I meet beautiful humans everywhere I go. I get the opportunity to work on my gifts. I’m breathing. There’s an abundance of things to be grateful for. And as we practice the set of gratitude, we turn on hormones and genes that bring us health and Longevity. Cool huh ? #motivationalmonday #grateful
There are so many ways to change up your push ups! In class the other day we tried push up variations with different tempos
Something I will cherish and stoked to own. Most excellent Hard Rock from France, Variations. Thank you so much to my Dude @jacobaleman
for this. This dude has a crucial obscure amount of amazing Hard Rock and Psych 45 gems you should know about. Schools me all the time. Anyways go jam some Variations. #vinyl #rockdj #variations
SINGLE LEG DEADLIFTS ⚰️
Performed exactly like conventional deadlifts but using one leg. The “non-working” leg is behind and allowed to lightly touch floor during the lift for added stability 👍🏼
If you’ve mastered conventional deadlifts, give this progression a try to challenge yourself during your next training!
✔️ Extra booty burn!
✔️ Increase core & stabilisation challenge
✔️ Can lift hardly any weight & still look badass 🤡
💥BUILD A STRONG BACK WITH THE PENDLAY ROW 💥
_ 👇Building a strong back could actually help your cause, when it comes to pressing the other way.
_ 👇Effectively, the Pendlay row is a variation from the bent over row. Both are fantastic variations to work your back.
_ ✅ I particularly like the pendlay row due to the ability to reset your form in between each rep and also the advantage of pulling from a dead stop position. Although both are great, I believe and have seen with clients the bent over can get a bit jerky, as it is a very demanding position to maintain.
_ 👇Having said that you can incorporate both into your training program. Varying sets and rep ranges depending on goal.
_ 👉 Get your back strong and watch your pressing take full advantage 👊 DC
This eccentric emphasized, or a descending pushup, is a great beginner pushup. If you've been working on an elevated surface, and are ready to go to the floor, try this. The key with this is to go down slowly and to take it down until you touch the floor. This is a great way to learn the depth of a pushup. You are taking away the hardest part of a pushup.... which can be added in later when you're stronger! 💪😊
🔥 Bench Press Variations 🔥
I’m now currently 1/2 way through my post holiday program & thought I’d post a little clip in relation to the different types of bench press variations I do.
Majority of my sets are 5 x 5 as my main focus is to really build up my strength again. This rule applies to all my lifts when training for strength.
Here are my following lifts & numbers in relation to this clip ⬇️
5 x 5 @ 85Kg Flat bench press.
5 x 5 @ 90Kg Decline bench press.
5 x 5 @ 68Kg (34Kg DB’s) Incline bench press.
Ps keep an eye out for more videos from @roweezy
aka Phillo Pillow and myself 🤣✌🏼
