ITS 🗣#FORMFRIDAY ! We’ve tackled reverse lunges before but, this time we’re adding weight to challenge and build those muscles further! ✅ Reverse Lunge is beneficial to athletes, perfect for any sport requiring speed and power. ✅Safer for knees. There is less pressure with reverse lunges compared to regular lunges avoiding the mistake of having the knee too far forward past the knees. ✅Better Balance reverse lunges allow the majority of your weight to stay on the back leg, avoiding the added knee pressure from the front lunge where the majority or the wait is placed on the front leg. #GetVerbFit 💪🏿
Wrapping up the week the strong way 💪🏾! Friday🔜 #GetVerbFit #Kettlebell
I really felt that when he said ✔️checks over stripes....#GetVerbFit
CORE🔹WORK How do you work on strengthening your core? 🤔 The typical train of thought is to perform hundreds of crunches and bicycles and that’s going to do the trick.. Not so fast☝🏾 👇🏾 Truth is, while doing crunches may provide you with a solid burn in your abs, they are quite ineffective in strengthening your entire core overall, which includes the internal and external obliques, erector spinae, multifidus, transverse obdominus, and rectus abdominus. ✨ To truly strengthen your core you want to challenge these muscles by dynamically stabilizing them under stress. Above, I am doing an anti-rotation exercise of a sand bag pull under combined with a push-up. The challenge here is in performing the movements while creating as LITTLE rotation in your hips and torso as possible, which is wayyy harder than it looks! ✨ Does this mean you have to do this to strengthen your core? Not at all. A way to regress this exercise would be to remove the push-up, and just do the pull-under part starting with light weight, focusing on stabilizing your core. Start with the fundamentals, and build from there. #GetVerbFit 💪🏾 #LoveAndMissYouRob ❤️

”Don’t count the days, make the days count.”- Muhammad Ali🥊 Today💫 is a new day #MakeItCount ! ➖ ➖ ➖ Choose peace and self control. Choose success and not failure. Commit to your goals with purpose. Use setbacks as motivation to stepforward YOU’VE GOT THIS‼️ #MorningMotivation #GetVerbFit
#MotivationMonday ✅ Happy Monday❗️Challenge yourself this week with something new! ➖ ➖ ➖ The body has an amazing ability to adapt, so it's important to switch up your workout routine every now and then to avoid plateau. One way to spice up your routine is by doing strength/power supersets- a strength based exercise followed immediately by a power exercise that works the same muscle group. What you see here is your standard dumbbell chest press followed by a medicine ball chest pass. Choose weights that are going to be sufficiently challenging for you as the rep count will be low (8-10). On the ball toss, remember to engage your core and get full extension on the throw. Try doing 8-10 reps on chest press (challenging weight) followed by 8 fast and powerful ball throws for 3-4 sets. 💪🏾💪🏾 #GetVerbFit
Its #FORMFRIDAY ❕❗️ 🔑Alternating shoulder taps help to increase your core strength, and when performed properly trains your spine and pelvis for optimal alignment, which improves posture. ✅Set up in an extended plank position, with hands shoulder width apart, wrists directly underneath shoulders, and feet about shoulder width apart. ✅Before initiating movement, squeeze your glutes, and engage your midsection, pulling your abs in toward your spine. ✅In a controlled fashion, touch your left shoulder with your right hand, then return to floor. ✅Next, repeat with opposite side bringing your left hand to your right shoulder, then returning to floor. ✅Continue for reps, or for an allotted amount of time.

IT’S 🗣 #FORMFRIDAY ❗️❗️ One of my favorite exercises THE SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT. ...Swipe left ➡️ ➖ ➖ ➖ 🤔What are the benefits of this exercise? Why should you add this to your training program?🤷🏾‍♂️ 1️⃣This exercise is important for athletes, general and special populations. It helps to reduce injuries and improve performance. 2️⃣The Single-leg deadlift develops hip strength and power and also allows the muscles of the hips and legs to act as stabilizers. 5️⃣ ✋🏾TIPS ON TECHNIQUE 1️⃣ Keep the back neutral. 2️⃣ The hips hinge , the torso doesn’t bend forward instead the hips are moving backward. 3️⃣ Bend the front knee but it does not excessively move forward. 4️⃣ The shoulders remain engaged at the lats , keep the chest up and elbows locked throughout movement. 5️⃣ The back leg is an extension of the spine, think about getting as long as possible through the back leg.
It has to start somewhere, it has to start sometime, what better place than here? What better time than now? #getmoving #stopprocrastinating #trainrightandprogress #getverbfit
VERB tip of the day 💁🏾‍♂️🔑 Standing Cable Pallof Press and Farmers Walk. CABLE PALLOF PRESS Connect a standard handle to a tower, and position the cable to shoulder height. With your side to the cable, grab the handle with both hands and step away from the tower. You should be approximately arms length away from the pulley, with the tension of the weight on the cable. With your feet positioned hip-width apart and knees slightly bent, hold the cable to the middle of your chest. This will be your starting position. Press the cable away from your chest, fully extending both arms. You core should be tight and engaged. Hold the repetition for several seconds before returning to the starting position. At the conclusion of the set, repeat facing the other direction. FARMERS WALK There are various implements that can be used for the farmers walk. These can also be performed with heavy dumbbells or Kettle bells. Begin by standing between the implements. After gripping the handles, lift them up by driving through your heels, keeping your back straight and your head up. Brace your core and keep chest up , elbows should not touch your sides. Walk taking short, quick steps, and don't forget to breathe. Move for a given distance, typically 50-100 feet, as fast as possible. #trainingtips #getmoving #trainrightandprogress #getverbfit
