There are days that I don’t have the energy to get up and workout. On those days it is easier to start getting your ass in gear when you have someone there who is holding you accountable for working out together. That is where a friend, family, or significant other can come into play. That and they can help snag a workout selfie of you doing a decline cable woodchop. ;)
No filter needed for these beauties who came out for Our #sundayfunday#workout 😎💪 We did postural corrective #PNF#stretching and a full-body, core-centric workout. Lateral lunge w/reverse medicine ball #woodchop , Single DB walking #lunges , banded goblet squats, supine hip extension (back on ball), side ball flexion & finished w/ #Swissball#crunches (working the rectus abdominis through full range- not holding their necks). Everyone worked at their own level, received lots technical feedback and learnt something new about their bodies. I hope you enjoyed the workout ladies and we’ll see you in class soon! If you missed this opportunity & wish to try a FREE class this week PM me now! Get Active. Eat Well. Relax Often. Smile Big!
Attention all woodchoppers! Chop, chop - it's time to enter our Woodchop & Sawing Competition. If you can swing an axe like a pro, you have until Friday 11 May to get your entries in. Enter at ekka.com.au/competitions #ekka#woodchopping#woodchop#ekkawoodchop#competition
The most common plane of movement we use in the gym is the sagittal plane. More often than not you will see pull patterns, push patterns, and barbell curls being performed. The frontal plane is also seen with exercises such as the lateral raise, but the least performed pattern trained is the transverse plane - (also one of the most common planes of movement to get injured in outside of the gym).. -
The wood chop is a good example of a transverse plane exercise and if this plane of movement is neglected from a workout program there is high potential for injury and imbalances in the body to occur, especially if you are highly tuned in the other planes. -
Make sure to incorporate each plane of movement into your workout routine to minimise injury and increase athletic performance. The body moves in every plane of movement and relies on all planes of movement to function optimally👍
