Our sister company Prime Health Management just released a new video on how to properly use the leg extension machine! Most residential community or corporate office building fitness centers will have some variation of a leg extension machine. Generally, most of us are rather tight in the hip flexors and quads and would probably benefit more from doing hip hinges or squats, rather than doing countless repetitions on this machine. However, every individual is different with different body types with their own personal goals in mind. If your goal is to build size and strength (just in the quad) than this exercise could be perfect for you. However, are you setting up the machine properly and performing the repetitions in the correct manner? Found out how in this video!
What's up Silver Strong Family? Our new video comes from our sister company, Prime Health Management, and it's all about the rotator cuff muscles and how to properly stretch them to get them functioning properly. There are 4 different rotator cuff muscles. Three of those muscles (Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor) are responsible for externally rotating your arm. The other rotator cuff muscle (Sub Scapularis) is responsible for internally rotating your arm. If you are a regular lifter or athlete, you more than likely have imbalances within these muscles and favor internal rotation. If this is the case stretching your external rotators may give you more problems down the road. You may need to focus on stretching your internal rotator (sub scapularis) while strengthening your external rotators to achieve better balance within your shoulders. If you are unsure which muscles to stretch and which ones to strengthen, consult your physical therapist or personal trainer before attempting these exercises.

Lately, golf and fitness have been going hand in hand, with many of the pros seeing the advantages of what a well structured exercise program can do for their game. If you don't believe me, put on the golf channel this coming weekend and look at the physiques of some of these athletes.

In this training video Alex is demonstrating an upper, lower, abdominal circuit, which is meant to be performed with little to no rest in between exercises. After you complete the three movements take thirty seconds of rest, then complete two more rounds. I like incorporating this style of circuit training because it really challenges the clients strength and cardiovascular capabilities because you are targeting the entire body at once. This is just an example of which exercises you can choose when planning your own total body circuit, any variation of upper, lower, and abdominal exercises will work just fine. Have Fun!!
