The deadlift and rehab?

Share This Post

I really loved this post I found regarding the importance of the deadlift and rehabilitation of a back injury. It touches at the very heart of how I am shaping what we do here at Best Practice. Most of you know I have been studying Metabolic Precision which is a process and structure for transforming bodies and living an extremely healthy existence. It encompasses a very strategic way to eat combined with a scientifically prescribed training program to get the utmost return for effort put in, which is absoultely fantastic. But what about the person who has an old injury to deal with? How do you get to the big exercises that stimulate the most growth? Important moves like the squat, deadlift, a rowing action and or a bench press. when there may be compromised movement patterns in place?

It will always be about firstly identifying issues, getting appropriate musculo skeletal treatment when necessary and then not being afraid to push for real and continual progression to improve  integrity so more challenges can be met, for both daily living and other goals such as muscle growth or at least maintenance – remember that most of us lose muscle as we age which seems to be strongly associated with everything we label ‘as getting old’. Way to avoid? Lift progressively heavier weights and vary the movements as the body adapts.

Read this post because it is intelligent and makes sense.

p.s you can probably pass on the videos unless you are as geeky and as interested as I am in the technical explanation around the biomechanics of this move!

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
