Great chatting to one half of this bromance this AM, about the benefits of strength training and team sports. @Hankmccoy23 (in red) has a history of working out, and playing sports such as rugby, cricket and golf, however he had never really used the power of strength training enhance his overall athletic performance.Our focus over the last few months, at varying stages, has been improving strength with compound lifts, accessory work in ranges of motion that translate to his sport, strengthening weaknesses and some different sled variations (among other things) for conditioning. All of this has had positive carry over to his first few weeks back at rugby, with some big improvements on his performance AND recovery.You don’t have to be a pro-athlete to reap the benefits lifting. In fact if you work in a rather sedentary job, you’re doing your body more of a dis-service by neglecting to strengthen it. If you play sport and find you experience back or joint pain after a game or after sitting at a desk all day, your body is trying to tell you to take proactive measures. Do something, before you develop a serious injury. If you’re not sure where to start, DM me, let’s talk!
