Grateful for the movement I have….

I remain incredibly grateful for the movement have in this life, no matter any frustrations that comes along the path which at first glance may seem restrictive, but I’m often reminding myself that while I do have muscle limitation in structure, it could have been even more challenging had things not been as quick whenContinue reading “Grateful for the movement I have….”

The long road from frustration to alternative workouts…

I first entered a gym full of thoughts of the limitations, of what I couldn’t do. I would go around and take machines & even whole areas off my list of things, never thinking I would be able to use them.It was a long page! free weights, Barbell Cable cross with both handles. You nameContinue reading “The long road from frustration to alternative workouts…”

Attaching an alternative to the push…

Something I realised of late is how extra careful I need to be with the extent of the volume of my sets involving pressing a bar that includes my left hand within the lift.

Finding an accessible routine…

Playing to my strengths to build up my structure on both sides…

I’m still not comfortable in describing my left side as the ‘weaker’ of the two. Yes my right is the dominant area muscle wise but this is mostly down to working with a different structure. Something that has played into my development with training is the question of symmetry. How do I train two separateContinue reading “Playing to my strengths to build up my structure on both sides…”
