🧠🗣💪 PROGRESS TRACKING - “What gets measured gets managed.” - Peter Drucker. - How are you tracking your progress? Measuring your progress is important to see where you are at in relation to your goal and to assist in keeping you motivated. - There are many ways to track your progress and it is important to pick the one(s) most suitable and relevant to your goal. Some things you can do: - Take progress photos - Body measurements - Track your steps each day - Keep a food diary or log your food - Track your sleep/keep a sleep diary - Track your training. Weights, reps, sets and technique. - Weigh yourself - Any further questions please send us a DM
🧠🗣💪 DYNAMIC STRETCHING - What is it? Where you move through a challenging but comfortable range of motion repeatedly. This is different to static stretching where you hold a muscle on stretch for a period of time. - How to do it? Dynamic stretches should be chosen specifically for the workout or sport you are about to complete. Aim to go through the range of motion around 10-12x each side with 2-3x sets. - When to do it? Best suited to being used during a warmup. This is because it: - Boosts blood flow to working muscles of the body - Improves body awareness by making you use balance and coordination - Assists in creating a better range of motion A basic example would be knees to chest. - Any further questions please send us a DM
🧠🗣💪 ALWAYS IMPROVING - One thing I value is self development as I have a drive to constantly better myself in whichever area I’m focussing on at that time. So when Tessa came to me with an ACLR, among other things, I thought it necessary to broaden my knowledge of ACL’s (ligament in the knee) and the surgery. So I did a course to help me understand in greater detail the injury. I still understand my scope, working with her Physio as it’s my job to focus on the training side. The course has allowed me to specifically tailor training and programming for her rehab. - When you train with BTE, I assure you I’ll deliver my knowledge to you and if I don’t know something I’ll let you know. Then I’ll go away and research it to find out all I can. This is one of the reasons I love this job, I can constantly improve to deliver a better service to you. - Any further questions please send us a DM
