Front is for show, Back is for go!

Front for show, back for go! ⁣ ⁣ Here we’ve got the Mule @dadds_mategetting after a solid superset for the posterior chain (not for the faint of heart). ⁣ ⁣ He is pairing the glute-ham raise with a double leg Bosch hold plus dumbbell row. Just about every muscle from the back of his head to the back of his heels is being used in this strength pair. ⁣ The main reasons we target these muscles: ⁣ > Anti gravity (improve our all too often rounded posture which lead to an array of issues); ⁣ > Athletic performance (glutes are a primary hip extensor, therefore a vital part of our ability to run fast, jump high and change direction); ⁣ > Increased resilience (often susceptible to injury due to lack of development). ⁣ ⁣ Too often we hear about the anterior dominant programs (bench press, curl, squat, lunge, step up, sit up/‘abs’). All of which may have their place in a program, but if they make up the majority, you are far from balanced in your training, body and overall fitness. ⁣ ⁣ Jay has shown natural, raw strength (2.25x BW trap bar deadlift with relative ease and without a lot of practice) but has suffered some knee and low back injuries from years of football and concreting. So our main focus with him is spending more time on the areas that are going to help him become more robust in his athletic career. ⁣ ⁣ Be like the Mule and add some back and butt training into your program 🦍 🍑 ⁣ ⁣ #one22
