The Most Important Muscles To Strength For Running - Part 4: Lower Extremity Accesory Muscles

Gold Coast Health, Fitness & Personal Training Post - Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Getting you running quick means getting you strong in all the right muscle groups.  For those that have missed it, I have already detailed why lifting weights will not make you slow and the importance of strengthening the hamstrings as knee flexors, the hamstrings as hip extensors and the quadriceps.  Now it is time to talk about some of the other muscle groups that will really get you rocketing along; whether you are running a marathon or 100m sprint.  The muscles we will cover here are what I call the lower extremity accessory group.  They are the triceps surae, tibialis anterior and flexor hallucis longus.     Read This Article

The Functional Movement Screen

Gold Coast Health, Fitness & Personal Training Post - Wednesday, March 28, 2012

This January I traveled down to Sydney to take the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Levels 1 & 2.  To be honest, it was quite overdue as I had been looking at the material for over two years but never had a chance to get taught it correctly.  In essence, the Functional Movement Screen is a series of seven movement patterns that require some form of balance, stability or mobility.  It is massively popular in the United States at the moment (most NFL teams use the FMS in their training programs) and it is a great method of getting a good idea of where you are at in terms of your injury risk; whether you are an athlete or not.    Read This Article

How Junior World Champion Surfers Train

Gold Coast Health, Fitness & Personal Training Post - Wednesday, March 14, 2012

At the start of the year, I was approached by 2011 world junior surfing champion South African Bianca Buitendag to help her with her training while she was here competing on the Gold Coast.  Bianca is a great girl, really athletic, surfs really well and should be mixing it with the big girls on the World Tour in the next year or two.  Anyway she was nice enough to allow me to share you her two video training programs and the exercises involved for our benefit.    Read This Article

The Most Important Muscles To Strengthen For Running - Part 3: Quadriceps

Gold Coast Health, Fitness & Personal Training Post - Saturday, January 14, 2012

To make sure you are up to speed (no pun intended), make sure you have had a look at Part 1 & Part 2 of The Most Important Muscles To Strengthen For Running and also read this article here.  Now the quadriceps group (as the latin translation suggests) is made up of four muscle heads: vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius and rectus femoris.  These muscles primarily extend the knee while the rectus femoris also flexes the hip, which makes it a doubly important muscle for running (as we will see in the next part of this series).    Read This Article

The Best Training Splits

Gold Coast Health, Fitness & Personal Training Post - Wednesday, December 14, 2011

A training split is basically what you train or what type of training you do on any given day of the week.  For instance if you train your legs on Monday, back on Wednesday and chest on Friday, that would be an example of a training split.  In the never-ending quest to enhance our training results, athletes, fitness enthusiasts and bodybuilders have experimented with a number of different training splits – some good, others terrible.  Here are some of my favorite splits I use for athletic training, fat loss and rehabilitation that you are more than welcome to take or adapt for your own purposes.  Read This Article
