Lower Body Strength Session @ Elite Sports Performance

I was back at Elite Sports Performance with Level 2 S&C Coach Todd Carlon for a Lower Body Conditioning session last night. This weeks session was focusing on getting my body to get used to heavier weights with the Squat, as well as a few supplementary exercises focusing on gluteal activation and strength.

Warm Up
The warm up is the same as it has been on all of the other sessions performed at Elite Sports Performance. One thing that I am becoming aware of finally is that my glutes are actually starting to fire up and that my stability on the warm up exercises are improving. Beforehand I was over activating the hamstrings and lumbar erector spinae as well as also moving excessively through different regions of the body. It still amazes me how good the body is adapting to either create improved and more efficient movement, or either compensate and mask an issue by perpetuating poor movements and muscle function.
