"And this is how I was able to stand on my head." Headstand has multifold benefits if performed correctly. 1. Improved brain function 2. Tones upper body 3. Resolves depression by stimulating pituary gland to release endorphins. And many more. That is the reason that Sirsasana is the "King of all asanas" in Yoga also. But we have to be very careful how we go about performing the asana. Progression has to be gradual. It took me months of practise to finally perform it without support and without any injury. But it was totally worth it. #reshapenation #yoga #headstand
It does take extra calories to cool your body down when you sweat, so wearing warm clothing during a workout can help you with weight loss, but not by very much. A better reason to do this is to keep your muscles warm which might help you avoid injury. Have you tried layering up in the gym? #centralathleticclub #fitnessrevolution #fitfam

Aaaaand the CrossFit Open is done - for 6 months anyway 😂 . 19.5 was was not my favourite but proud I got through 81 Thrusters & 72 Chest to Bar Pullups 🤢 most I’ve ever done in a workout. . I’m sad & glad it’s over, learned a lot and improved tonnes from my first Open last year 🙌
The Easter long weekend is coming up, how will we theme this one?🐣 . Here’s a flashback to the Queen’s Birthday workout from last year 👸🤣🤣
Have you ever heard of Plyometrics or Plyo? This could be something you can add to your workouts to build explosive power. What is Plyometrics? These exercises are dynamic or explosive in nature and take advantage of the stretch shortening cycle (SSC) which is the storage of elastic energy and challenges your fast twitch fibres. Basically it’s any type of explosive movement which usually propels you off the floor. Examples of Plyometric Exercises. Jump, bound, hop, depth jumps, skip, box jumps, explosive pushups, medicine ball throws (wall balls). Why use Plyometrics? They build muscle power, strength, balance, co-ordination, agility and they increase your cardiovascular fitness. Incorporating Plyometrics With Other Styles of Training In 1992 the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) conducted a study in the effectiveness of three training programs for explosive leg power to maximise the vertical jump – Squat, Plyometrics and Squat+Plyometrics. 48 subjects were divided into 4 groups including a control group and trained twice a week for 7 weeks in their respective training programs being Squats, Plyometrics or a combination of both. The result: - The Squat group increased their vertical jump by 3.3cm. - The Plyometric group increased their vertical jump by 3.81cm - The Squat + Plyometric group increased their vertical jump by 10.67cm Implementing both squatting and plyometrics have a much greater benefit than either on their own. Guidelines & Caution When Using these Exercises - As these can be highly co-ordinated, high impact and skilful movements, make sure you have a good understanding of the drill and technique. - Make sure you do it on a firm but forgiving surface ie. not concrete. - Don’t do them consecutively because like strength training, the muscles need time to recover and rebuild. - Land correctly to absorb force - Maximum speed and effort - Make sure you do a thorough warmup - Remember this is just one style of training and should be incorporated with other methods to take full advantage of strength training.
