FAQ about the movement and mobility seminar!
1. I’m not flexible, should I attend?
YES! This is the perfect seminar for you, we give standards and goals for you to work towards which actually give you direction from where you are at now and things to look out for along the way.
2. I am really flexible, will I actually get anything from the seminar?
Totally! We show people how to control the ranges that they have too, a big focus of the entire day is to know how to create and increase tension - giving you more body control and strength to make your overall training way better!
3. I am a coach, is this just for beginners?
Coaches and physiotherapists, chiropractors and doctors have all attended the seminar and have always taken something away from it. The best thing about the seminar is that people of all abilities and levels are all mixed together and it really helps give perspective on where someone has been and where they want to go, just from the attendees own questions we all learn from each other and really begin to fill in the gaps in everyone’s training.
4. I’m just in to running, I don’t want to lift weights, is the seminar still for me?
Completely! There is more to running than meets the eye and learning how to look after ALL of your joints will help you to keep active well into your later years. There are multiple things that everyone needs to check mobility wise in order to be able to run safely, lower intensity exercise still causes injuries, it just takes a little longer and prevention is best. The best injury is the one you never get!
5. Is it really physical? I am not that fit!
There is a lot of moving and testing on the day but nothing too taxing fitness wise! We explain a lot about performance and how to move better during workouts but it is more a theory element, function is our primary goal with the seminar so you will feel muscles in ways you have never felt them before but you’re not going to be doing 500 burpees or anything no! #movement#simplistic#mobility#method#strength#flexibility#shoulders#coaching#seminars#training#gym#weightlifting#snatch#clean#jerk#squat#core#yoga#tommorrison#crossfit#muscleup#abs

4 keys to a better squat
The book says jump up and down and that is the good Stance for squat, I think you need to look a little further. We have to look at variables like hip anatomy, femur length which takes into consideration a forward chest lean. Does there knees cave inwards towards the bottom of the range.
This is the most under utilized part of lifting. I see people taking a short breath going for a 3rd attempt at a competition. This simply is not enough if you want to get the most out of the squat. A better strategy is to make sure you are filling the belly all the way to the back (3D breathing) and holding it through the movement. A great way to test the strength of the core is by performing some planks. If it is weak then adding things like RKC Plank and deadbugs into the program. In the majority the upper abdominal are stronger than the lower so when performing lower abdominal exercise regression before progression
Paint the picture
What do you see the milliseconds before Squats. Does you mind go blank and hope that all the training in the block somehow makes you get back up. Or do you have a checklist you might get through by mentally cueing yourself for ie Stance brace knees wide shoulders up.
With these 4 cues a colour code is sometimes helpful Stance - red brace - green knees wide - yellow shoulders up - blue
Once you condition you mind to follow a colour coordination you can switch colour to colour.
Paint the picture model.
If you have ever been to a powerlifting meet you will hear all sorts of cues being shouted. Everyone is different and certain cues will resonate with one but not another. Like the paint the picture example I wanted to talk about 2 which I have found to have great carry over.
Shoulders up not chest
The reason for this is that chest up could extend the hips before we need them to resulting in a failed lift, instead shoulders through the ceiling makes everything move in sync with a nice clamped bar grip into the traps

LEARN HOW TO SPLIT JERK!
What’s up, Achievers?! @jasonlpak here and today I recruited Achieve Coach, Head of Program Design, and American Open competitor @very_good_fitness for this video on how to split jerk. We’ve been hesitant to put something like this up, because it’s an incredibly advanced movement and a quick Instagram post doesn’t really do it justice; however, we’ve been inundated with requests for more information on the Olympic lifts as well as the Split Jerk so we decided to put this introductory clip together.
We’re also assuming that you already have a solid foundation of front squatting, proper front rack position, and clean mobility overhead as well. We just couldn’t cover all of these prerequisites in a single post. We also highly recommend seeking out an Olympic lifting coach in your area to help you with all the the nuances that come with the Snatch and Clean and Jerk!
The big thing with the Olympic lifts is position, position, position! Take your time to work through these exercises and really ingrain these positions as part of your muscle memory. Don’t just rush through to the Split Jerk - the more time you spend on the previous steps, the better foundation you have for the Split Jerk. The greater the foundation, the more potential for strength down the road!
*In the last slide, we meant to say use the same *stance* as the Split Press and not the same “dip”.
We hope this post helped you out! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles ✌️💙💪!
