Kellie Davis shares her secrets to a more comfortable hip thrust!

0 comments

Nobody likes to be uncomfortable. We all have to face some necessary discomfort, especially during a serious workout, but, when given the choice, we'll do what we can to be comfortable.  As an experienced trainer, fitness consultant, and author, Kellie Davis knows the importance of reducing unnecessary discomfort when working out. Today, she's here to show you her tips for a more comfortable hip thrust! Discover Kellie's tips in the video below: Here's a recap of Kellie's advice: Eliminate bar-on-bone friction – To eliminate the discomfort of bar-on-bone friction, place the bar between your hip bone and your pubic bone. This position may cause some soreness at first, but your body will adjust.  Push the bar against your leg – When in position, the bar should rest in the crux of your leg. To keep it in the crux, push the bar against your leg; don't let it roll toward your hip bone. Use a bar pad – When you hip thrust heavier weights, consider using a bar pad to eliminate discomfort. But remember to place the opening of the bar pad away from your body. If you place the opening against your body, pressure will force the bar through the opening and create a bar-on-bone situation. Ready for more tips from Kellie? Kellie knows that a little extra comfort can go a long way in a workout, but she also knows the importance of an intense workout! With her clients' needs in mind, Kellie designed the 12-week Bodyweights and Bands program to help women build foundational strength, mobility, and stability regardless of their fitness level. When you join the Bodyweights and Bands program, you will receive time-efficient, full-body workouts each month, video tutorials, and direct contact with Kellie and the Fit Thrive team!

Dean Somerset shares his tips for a deeper squat with colossal results!

0 comments

If you have poor hip mobility, this video from Dean Somerset is perfect for you! Dean is famous for his expertise in injury management, and he is here to show you how to overcome some of the common errors that individuals with a history of injury tend to make when training. Check out the video below to learn how you can develop a deeper squat and increase your hip mobility: Here are some highlights from the video: Everyone has a different squat position - Although you should always try to adhere to proper form, each individual will have a personal spin on the traditional squat position. This variation results from the person's history of injury and resulting pain. So, if a wider squat allows you to get to the floor, than that position is ideal for you. Don't use your spine - If all the movement in your squat comes from the lumbar region of your spine, you will need to focus on transferring that movement to your leg muscles instead. Tighten your core and use your hips, hamstrings, and glutes to pull yourself to the floor. Don't lean forward - One of the most common types of compensation is to put too much weight on the toes. Individuals with a history of injury tend to lean forward on their toes in order to prevent falling backwards. Instead of this compensation, place approximately 60 percent of your weight on your heels and approximately 40 percent on your toes. Then you can drop into a squat with better spinal alignment.
