☝️**Unilateral movement**☝️ 🏋️ Single arm dumbbell press is a great exercise for assessment and rehab. It challenges so many different muscle groups including the 'corset core' and allows for work on weaknesses between sides reducing injury in the overhead lifts such as snatch or jerk 🏋️ 🎥 In the video we can see the scap on the left is winging a little and protracted and the shoulder itself is sitting in a more internally rotated position. As this is causing her pain and discomfort she is limited in the amount of weight she can shift overhead which is becoming more frustrating and impacting her overall fitness and weightlifting goals 🎥 💪 I'll likely look to work on retraction and external rotation of the shoulder and scap as well as posterior sling work. As she uses her trunk more to shift the weight up when using the left arm I'll work on functional core strength to ensure there is equilibrium alongside thoracic and overhead mobility exercises 💪 😎 This functional approach should help her feel as if she is still progressing towards her goals as well as allowing her to continue working in an environment that motivates and enriches her fitness experience thus increasing her involvement in her rehab 😎 🤔❓Is there anything you would do differently? What else do you notice in the video? Have you experienced shoulder pain yourself that has limited your progress? What worked in getting you back to where you wanted to be? 🤔❓ 👍🤙 Thanks to @shofittt for letting me video and to @newagefitnesshamilton for the surroundings! 👍🤙 #physiotherapy#physicaltherapy#physio#rehab#functionalrehab#strengthandconditioning#weightlifting#weights#strength#gains#gainz#fitness#gym#girlsthatlift#girlswholift#functional#shoulder#shoulderrehab#olympiclifting

Squats 8-1 to sort out breathing and start to move towards the goal of 150kg. Seem to be considerably weaker at squats than I should be, despite adding noticeable mass to quads and hamstrings over the last year.
80kg x 8
95kg x 6
105kg x 4
115kg x 2
120kg x 2
130kg x 1
Then into deep hack squats - 130kg 4x6
☞1 Week Out #MPI2018☜
Finished the training cycle in preparation for the upcoming meet under coach @lukelangopowerlifting . This week’s training marks the most intense. Some lifts went well, some didn’t.
Squat: 190kgx3, 200kg x1 (failed 2nd rep)
Bench: 122.5kg x3, 127.5kg x2 (failed 3rd rep)
Deadlift: 225kg x2 237.5kg x1 (failed 2nd rep)
As much I wished training to be smooth sailing and hitting numbers as planned, but many times encountered shortcomings. There were great, good, OK, bad and crappy days. But just do it anyway.
Looking through my training journal, it has been 26 weeks. Training for the upcoming meet has already begun ever since I last competed in March. Training consistently 5 days a week with 2-3 hours per session. I am exhausted, physically and mentally, but the spirit is still very much a raging fire. The finish line is approaching near, with a final and toughest hurdle to overcome, which is Meet Day.
Deloading will take its course this week, along with rest, recovery and some other preparations. And dear Adrenaline ❤, please show me love on meet day. I need your magic.
Oh, another important thing, still yet to decide how much am I going to lift next weekend 😂😂

When you find something you love to do you want to do it all the time, develop, progress and ultimately share that passion with others. That’s exactly how I feel about fitness and coaching my personal clients and Bodyfix members to achieve their goals.
Each client has a different story and walking with them on their journey is a real privilege. Watching them progress and begin to feel energised, fitter, stronger and proud of themselves is something I’ll never tire of. An excited high five or ‘I can’t believe I can do that!’ text at the end of a day of personal training is just awesome.
I’m continually developing my own fitness and challenging myself. Why would I make a client do a workout or exercise I’ve not experienced myself? Knowing what it feels like gives me the empathy to support and encourage exactly when it’s needed. I hope my enthusiasm for pushing my own personal boundaries inspires the people I coach to continue to stretch their own limits.
My coaching work involves both 1:1 personal training and groups of men and women at Bodyfix Transformation centre. Our ethos is to provide a supportive environment for people of all fitness levels to train together, push themselves and get great results. Our job is to help people and I love that, we actually give a shit and strive to make sure our members are feeling motivated, happy and are progressing.
Fitness isn’t just about the physical, it has a huge impact on mental and emotional health. Being part of that type of positive transformation is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. Coaching isn’t about imposing a strict regime of push ups and protein shakes, it’s about listening to a client’s hopes and goals and working out what might be happening in their lives that could get in the way of them. Being a listening ear and helping solve a problem is sometimes just as important as teaching deadlift technique.
