STT on YouTube – Body Weight Warm-Up

The warm-up sets the tone for the workout. Eliminate the distractions and focus on the task at hand. Incorporate exercises in a rhythmic fashion to get the heart rate up and activate the muscles of the body through full range of motion movements. Balance drills are often overlooked but can add variety too. Here are a few exercises that can help you warm-up before your next strength or conditioning workout.

STT continues the IL Tip of The Day

www.SMARTERTeamTraining.comThey even show the mistakes! Man Inside Lacrosse is a tough crew. This series of video clips and drills was even more fun to do than it looks in this clip. Ryan Rabidou from Inside Lacrosse was willing to get right in and try the drills. Looking forward to showcasing more intermediate and advanced drills as the relationship between STT’s founder, Robert Taylor, grows with Inside Lacrosse.

STT on YouTube – Sand Bag Leg Circuit

Get away from the dumbbells and barbells to add variety to your training. What else is around you to switch up your training? Try grabbing a sand bag and make a list of as many exercises as you can think of. Then pick 5-7 exercises that you can do with confidence and repeat for ten reps each. Track how many times you do each exercise in 15 minutes. Progress by decreasing your rest time between exercises or by increasing time. Check out this clip to get you started.

STT on YouTube – Core Training Series

Ab and low back exercises should be part of your routine every time you workout. From warm up to strength training to flexibility, the region of the body often called the “core” needs to be trained properly. The muscles of the abdomen and low back need to be warmed up, stretched, trained, and allowed to recover just like every other muscle of the body. Find time to fit each aspect into your program and to address flexion, extension, and rotation of this area of the body. Do not forget that this area of the body also inhibits the body from completing these motions too. Incorporate exercises that promote stability like planks and anti-flexion/rotation exercises is important also.

STT on YouTube – One and a Quarter

Working in various rep ranges, time under tension, and cadences is always fun. Another way to add creativity to your workout is to make each rep”s range of motion just a little longer. Try using the same weight as “usual” but add 25% more length to each rep and try to get your “normal” reps completed. This is also a good way to focus on what many consider may be a sticking point. Try this protocol with an entire workout. It is great for shoulder, back, and lower body exercises too.
