10/3 – GreenStrengthIV Training Log

What a great day! Started around the time the sun was still over an hour away from showing us how bright it is. Everyone who was in at 6am did a great job, worked hard and definitely got 1% better in something. Then Mobile Mighty Greg and I played with iron and worked on skills. I followed that session up with a smash session in the afternoon. Body is starting to really feel good despite the volume I’ve thrown at it these last few weeks. This is due no doubt to my increase in calories. I reached out to a fellow coach and buddy of mine Dan Allison for some nutrition guidelines. We all need coaching and I really needed to hear someone tell me what I already knew I should be doing, yet my mind kept me from doing it. I’ve applied his advice all while still destroying a GIANT GREENSTRENGTH MEAL every night. Weight is up, recovery is much better, sleep has improved – winning situation!

Weak Patterns | Perfect Practice Is Needed…

Here is a great post on www.strengthsenei.com – Click to read entire article

I wanted to post a few lines from this article as I feel it answers a ton of questions. I know for fact many of my guys are going to really understand why I always talk about being mindful during training, and the major differences between what I/We/#Greenstrength and others. Again, we do the same exercises, same correctives, same food choices as everyone else blah blah – the difference is we mindfully encourage our you to search for the ‘perfect practice’ as mentioned below. So enjoy and let these lines sink in and you’ll understand one of the many #Greenstrength differences from the rest of the modern fitness world.

“Just for a second, let’s say your athlete presents with postural imbalances. His right shoulder is low, his pelvis is rotated and his left knee buckles in.

Considering that an individual’s postural response is involuntary, in that context, performing corrective exercises means compensation will be a component of every repetition.

Performing a corrective exercise incorrectly does not make much sense. As they say, practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.

Proprioception is derived from the muscle’s capacity to inform the nervous system where a limb is at all times. When muscles are shortened and some are lengthened as a result of these postural imbalances, the sensitivity of the muscle receptors decreases. This results in a loss of feedback for where the limbs are positioned. This is what a reduction in proprioception comes down to.

Less proprioception = less sensation = less performance! It’s very difficult to control and move what you don’t feel.”

Be Mindful in your practice and movement!
