- Pick up your kid.
- Get up from being on your knees.
- Walk with a suitcase.
- Push the lawnmower.
- Lift the end of the sofa so that your partner can see where the tv remote has gone.
- Put on your socks while standing up.
All of the above are scenarios most of us come across on a regular basis.
These are activities of daily living and not what you would typically associate with the gym.
Yet a little bit of time spent on the gym floor with myself is where you can get stronger for life.
Gone are the days when lifting weights was something reserved for the bodybuilders and powerlifters.
You should be lifting too!
Apply the principles of safe and progressive weightlifting and you will be stronger for life.
One of my favourite sessions to take a client through is a session where at the end my client says:
“I didn’t think I could do that.”
I focus on seven key movements that dictate most of the actions where perform each day.
Unfortunately not enough is done to teach the public about the importance of exposing our bodies to these actions on a regular basis.
Place your body in positions it does not find natural and although awkward and uncomfortable to begin with, your body will be soon thanking you for rediscovering it’s ability to squat and hip hinge!
Train with me and make what you do in the gym – and what you do the other 23 hours of the day – a little bit stronger and pain free.
