Honest Conversations, Motorcycles and Weight Loss

Honest Conversations, Motorcycles and Weight Loss

I’ve been out of the private training scene for a month or two now and I while I don’t feel like that’s enough time to properly collect my thoughts on this subject, I’ve started. And it’s a deep, fraught, emotional rabbit hole.

 

When you’re in the fitness industry there is a question that comes up more often than any other.

"How do I lose weight?"

Whenever I felt it coming I freeze.

Then I back away mumbling something about not being the person to ask because I’m only qualified in training, not nutrition.

"Rehab" and the Wild

"Rehab" and the Wild

First things first : 

There isn't really such a thing as A "Rehab" Exercise. 

There are only strength and conditioning exercises, which we use for rehabilitation purposes.

That said, some things get pigeonholed as 'rehabby'. And that's fine -  they crop up a lot more often in rehab programs than as #bro-sesh #hypertrophy #gaainnzzzz clickbait on TNation. 

However, the reason these exercises tend to appear so often in a rehab setting is precisely because they target a weakness or a physical need in a specific, safe and beneficial way. And they don't stop being beneficial once rehab is "complete".  

In Season Strength and Conditioning

In Season Strength and Conditioning

Why is it so important to continue strength training during the season? I’ll give you 2 good reasons: Improved performances and reduced injury risk.

If you think about it, the less you get injured, the more you can train. The more you train (smartly) the better you perform. Especially in team sports, the less players that are out injured, the stronger the team. When the coach has the full squad to choose from, especially the best players available, the more likely you get the results.
