Oscillating shoulder press - if you already have the mobility requirements to press overhead, this number will groove some stability and control into your overhead range.  Great as a shoulder rehab exercise (start super light) after working on shoulder mobility and various strength inputs at shoulder flexion angles below fully overhead. You can do this by sitting on an incline bench and starting with an almost horizontal back positioning - progressing slowly to fully overhead.  If in doubt…

When we get better at surfing, we get worse at general human movement. To prevent injury in surfing we need to improve the load bearing capacity of our body’s tissues to a level beyond which they will be exposed to, maintaining the health of all our joints to optimise general movement and surf performance.  The greater positions and joint angles your body can move and control, the greater your capacity to adapt to unpredictable situations. Move better to surf better.  All techniques are…

Cultivating a daily mobility practice improves soft tissue health, enhances movement capacity and helps prevent and recover from injury. But an overlooked benefit is that it can also help you improve parasympathetic recovery. Your parasympathetic nervous system takes care of your “rest and digest” functions – the opposite of the high stress “fight or flight” sympathetic nervous tone.  Stretching and applying palpation to soft tissues excites nerve bundles, causing the nerves to send a…

Life places asymmetrical loads on the body. I surf and surfing particularly the hips and spine. Regular, wholesome movements which target full range of joint motion are key to a long term relationship with your surfboard (or whatever sport / hobby / activity you choose). 🔑🏄 .. This is a snippet of the mobility practice I regularly move through to keep my body feeling good. .. Start in 90/90 and slowly hover your trail leg off the ground, back into hip extension, forward to cross the foot…

It's coming to the final week of moving house and feeling absolutely spent. There's always so much more to do than you think and you figure out you have way more than you need. Hats off to all the legit minimalists out there. If you have ever discounted how physical a spring clean or a house-move is, swipe left for the evidence 😏 #sydneystrengthconditioning #housecleaningfitness #minimalistgoals

Meeting Louie Simmons and visiting the Westside Barbell Gym in Ohio back in November 2011 greatly changed my perspective and confidence with coaching clients in getting stronger. I am not a powerlifter, nor have I coached professional powerlifters, but understanding a fraction of the concepts Louie has practiced and preached for decades is an empowering tool to have in your coaching toolbox. Louie is passionate, warm-hearted and one hell of an inspirational dude. I will be forever grateful…

“According to Buddhism, the root of suffering is neither the feeling of pain nor of sadness nor even of meaninglessness. Rather, the real root of suffering is this never-ending and pointless pursuit of ephemeral feelings, which causes us to be in a constant state of tension, restlessness and dissatisfaction. Due to this pursuit, the mind is never satisfied. Even when experiencing pleasure, it is not content, because it fears this feeling might soon disappear, and craves that this feeling…
