  • Hi my lovely ones  wondering if I can plant
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Hi my lovely ones - wondering if I can plant a seed for you before you launch into the weekend... do you reckon we can all come together and think about how we can be super extra resourceful with the bits and pieces left in the fridge before we do the next shop and refresh for the week ahead? Look at every little herb stem, veggie 'scrap', piece of roast veggie or miniscule amount of lentils or meat or WHATEVER and consider - how can I best make use of this? Because really we are SO PRIVILEGED to have these

VIDEO : LEARNING THE CORRECT SQUAT TECHNIQUE

Being all for trying new things, I had the opportunity to experience InPuls Studios recently which I’d say is a training technique that will completely take you out of your comfort zone. See more about InPuls here… However just as when you are a child you should crawl before you walk, I know as an adult too, launching into a new style of training it’s important to revisit the basics before you push beyond the cushy zone. So that we did with working through a basic squat movement.

Why the squat? Why not the lunge, the push up, or the burpee? Well, to be frank I have super lazy glutes. A few reasons – labral tears through both hips from a combination of childbirth and running means that my hips and quads try to take the load and my glutes switch off really easily. Squatting for me for many years before my labral tears really flared up was a lot of leg work instead of activating glutes. Now that I know what I need to do, whenever I train I fire up the glutes first or if I walk into a new training technique like InPuls I ensure I work through this essential squat pattern so my body is moving right.

Plenty of individuals have this same issue with their glutes, and sitting down most of the day doesn’t help either! Hopefully this short video will help you understand the importance of good squat technique and how to improve your squat. The first segment gives you insight into what BAD squat technique looks like before we work through the CORRECT squat technique.

Big thanks to Christoph at InPuls for his expertise and training. Stay tuned for next video which takes you through the EMS machine and a session!
