If you got to the result you always wanted, then do you think you could actually keep it?
So much of the process of improving performance, health, fitness and body-composition changes are about mastering that level in your life.

What if you did 6-week challenge and then put the weight back on/went backwards?

Well you haven’t passed that level in your life or it wasn’t sustainable.

How about coming up with the same BS limiting beliefs mentally over and over?

Yep, still haven’t passed that level.

With body comp changes its about mastering your lifestyle and making it work.

Do you want results?

Something has to change and stay that way.

For me it was always struggling to make strength gains.

The problem I was jumping around training programs like a kangaroo in a hunt.

Shit was rapid.

Now I complete 10-12 week training cycles with 90% compliance rates and have become the strongest I ever have.

That was me 2 years ago.

So is the problem:

- Your coach?
- Your program?
- Your lifestyle?

Post your thoughts in the comments below.

BLOG: Get Glutes!

Glutes are the BIGGEST muscle in the body so they need attention in every training program.

Are you training the glutes in extension, flexion, abduction, adduction, internal rotation and external rotation?

BLOG: Conditioning With A Purpose

Have you ever thought that conditioning training you see in the fitness industry is pointless?

Literally just throwing shit at the wall and hoping it sticks.

Throwing random exercises together with no real outcome or purpose besides giving the client a sense of intensity?

I have many times.

BLOG: Preventing Injuries During Training

Helix Sports Performance-261.jpg

I wanted to talk about preventing injuries during training.

Basically injuries occur during training when 1 of these 4 things happen, possible more than 1 at the same time:

- You do dumb/unsafe shit
- You’re body isn’t ready for the volume/training/you go too hard
- You haven’t warmed up properly
- Your coach has no idea what they’re doing

I understand there’s more to it, but this is anecdotal AF.

So with these 4 things in mind, prevention would be as follows:

1. Follow a structured training program that stays away from fads (unstable surface training, bosu’s, f45)
2. Don’t do high rep exercises that have the potential to injure you (high rep oly work)
3. Build up to a certain volume/training style or training methodology, throwing yourself in the deep end is likely to end in tears.
4. Do a structured warmup that takes all joints through the range of motion expected during the training session, it also should increase body temp and increase in intensity.
5. Leave the ego at the door and realise that performance isn’t an overnight issue, train at sub-max most of the time.
6. Get a coach who knows what they’re doing, no weekend or online certifications.
7. Get STRONG AF

When I hear of the countless stories of people getting injured in gyms/training facilities, I like to think they’re mostly preventable.

We’ve had one major injury in 4 years of Helix, by major it was a fractured arm due to falling off a box on a box jump.

Not Helix but unlucky/should have been ready to catch the fella
