One of my biggest discoveries over the last 12 months for a massive improvement in lat activation - maintaining a position of external rotation while training lats. And no, this has nothing to do with pronation or supination. ***Come train with me and the MI40 Crew down in Tampa and find out what is optimal for YOU and your physique development - http://www.mi40nation.com/mi40-muscle-camp/ *** Watson Gym Equipment Mi40 Gym

Got Delts? There is more to growing delts than swinging weights and pressing things over your head. Delt training is all about resisting those awful days in geometry class and learning how to create the angles to load the exact portion of the deltoid you want to train. Please ladies, come learn how to train your delts, and stop growing upper traps. Those look great on Tom Hardy, but no one wants to see those on the bikini or figure stage, or the walking down the beach. Save the shrugging lateral raises for the Bros.

Learn how to train hard with #Mi40Coach Meghan Schwartz Training to failure. Have you ever been there? How do you know if you train there? What happens if and when you do get there? This is where many people “fail to fail”. Truly reaching failure requires having the discipline to maintain execution through fatigue and not let yourself begin distributing the load to other muscles or using momentum. For example, in a cable lateral raise when the “burn” kicks in hard as lactate accumulates in the middle of the set and near the end of your goal reps you have almost nothing left in the tank. So what do you do from there? You could bro it out and use your entire body to just move that handle up to that arbitrary goal of shoulder height and not use your delts at all to get it there… OR...you can keep contracting the working muscle and decrease the range of motion. Forget about moving the handle or whatever apparatus you're using and keep the work in the working muscle! #muscleintelligence #muscleexpert #mi40gym #mi40 #EducateAndDominate #SqueezeItLikeItOwesYouMoney #tampafit #mi40nation #NoWastedReps #Floridafitness

Training variables insights with #Mi40Coach Bryce Bahm Dumbbell Rows are a great traditional exercise to train your lats. That being said, any free weight movement for back is actually the complete opposite loading pattern you’re looking for in an exercise selection. To be more specific, dumbbell rows do not match the strength profile for your back at all. In the lengthened range, where joints are stacked, there is very little load on the lats. As you progress through your row, getting closer to the shortened position, the load actually gets heavier and heavier. I see this as a problem. But not a problem you can’t fix. You have either two choices here. Both are equally ok, depending on your goal set for the exercise. You can pick a weight that matches your output ability in the lengthened half of the exercise (typically heavier). Or you can choose a weight that always you to keep the lats engaged in the shortened position and spend time there (typically much much lighter). In the video, I do a triple drop set. The first two sets I am focusing solely on spending time in the lengthened position with as much tension as possible and fairly heavy load for myself. The last set, I make an attempt to hold onto that shortened contraction with a much lighter load than the first initial set. Important Note: You can see on the last set, that even with the weight selection fairly light, my back and traps tend to elevate to compensate for weakness here. This is a good example of why free weight rows are not the best exercise to get your lats loaded properly and efficiently fully shortened. #mi40gym #mi40nation #floridafit #tampafitness #educateanddominate #mi40 #muscleintelligence

Training tips from #Mi40Coach Tayler Jordan Ifbb Pro This one is for my fellow nuggets! I apologize in advance.. but you will no longer have an excuse not to get full range of motion on the leg press hehe. Simply add a booster seat! Also, here are a few execution tips for a hip/hamstring dominate leg press: 1. Feet high and wide 2. Drive through the heels (lift toes if needed) 3. Push your lower back hard into the pad and never let your hips lift 4. Advanced tip: Flex your hip flexors at the bottom of the movement for a great stretch #mi40gym #tampafit #mi40nation #EducateAndDominate #SqueezeItLikeItOwesYouMoney #muscleintelligence #NoWastedReps #givemeallthegains #floridafitness #mi40

Back training tips from #Mi40Coach Tayler Jordan Before I came to the Mi40 Gym I just did "pulldowns". Now, I have learned the difference between executing an upper back focused pulldown and a lat focused pulldown. Let me share The exercise on the left is targeting lats. Slightly leaning back, depress the scapula first, and shove the shoulder blades down. The exercise on the right is to target upper back. Sit up tall with a slight arch to bypass the lats (but still keep abs engaged). Think of pulling the handles apart and elbows wide. Same machine. Both back exercises. But both completely different focuses! You can easily target different muscles by simply changing the angle of your body position, initiating with the working muscle, and proper execution. #Mi40gym #mi40nation #EducateAndDominate #NoWastedReps #SqueezeItLikeItOwesYouMoney #muscleintelligence #tampafit #floridafitness #mi40

You can't grow delts if you can't control your scapula. The medial and posterior deltoids attach to the scapula. The scapula is not a stationary bone, it moves to accommodate the changing orientation of the humorous. Trying to train your delts if you do have good scapular stability from the lower trap, and rhomboids etc is like trying to push a car while standing on ice. You can't create tension between two moving objects unless they are very stable. Learning to limit scapular motion, and maximize scapular stability is the key to being able to produce significant tension in your delts. You can do all the reps, and all the exercises. Sure you might get a pump in the deals, and every muscle around them as well, because everything is doing the work, and in the end, when the pump leaves, your delts will be the little shriveled up raisins that have always been. We will be teaching activation and techniques for stabilizing the scapula and maximizing delt recruitment this Sat 3-6PM at MI40 Gym after the Glute Clinic.

Are you activating your glutes in the bottom of a RDL / deadlift. The straight leg deadlift stops when you run out of range of motion from the hamstring. This makes it very easy to dominate the movement with hamstrings, especially in the stretched portion of the movement. If you want to train your glutes in the position, you have to initiate by creating tension in the glutes before you attempt any movement at the hip. How do you achieve this. YOU SQUEEZE YOUR BUTT. Simple right, but without the right stability at the pelvis, and proper cues a lot of people can't actually create any glute tension in the bottom of a RDL or stiff leg deadlift. You should be able to create a noticeable pinching motion with your glutes in this position executed perfectly here by my protege & MI40 coach Meghan Schwartz Join Kassem Hanson - Muscle Expert/ Physique Coach and Mi40 Coach Meghan Schwartz this Sat May 14th for a life changing glute training session where we will help open your minds to what glute training is all about.

The biggest reasons your delts won't grow, is that you don't actually force them to create the movement. If you have tiny delts, there are so many other muscle around or near what you want to work that it doesn't stand a chance. It's like the smallest puppy in the litter. These means everything from your alignment, range of motion and intent of movement needs to be just right in order for those delts to receive the nutritious stimulus they need to grow. Leaned a little to far forward, you miss it, a little to far back, you miss it, a little too fast, you lose it, a little body language and your upper traps stole it. Tip 1- The delt you want to work has to directly oppose the line of force Tip 2 - The movement has to limited to the range of motion where the delt can keep tension. Full range of motion of the shoulder is all the muscle, an individual delt provides 45-60 degrees of motion max for most people when isolated Tip 3 - The delt has to be targeted to do the work mentally, or you will use other muscle to help raise your arms. Stop losing delt gains to bad execution. Come to the MI40 shoulder Clinic this Saturday with Kassem Hanson - Muscle Expert/ Physique Coach and Mi40 Coach Meghan Schwartz.

Knowledge bomb from #Mi40Coach Hypertrophy Coach Accomplish training goals with exercises. Don't train to accomplish exercises. Machines are the perfect example. Don't try and make yourself fit a machine, make the machine fit you and your training goals. Perfect example: from a back workout earlier in the week Ben Pakulski IFBB Pro showed me a great way to modify this machine to optimize lat training. Video on the left: if you use the machine as intended, and follow the handle path, your upper arm eventually starts to travels away from your body. No longer shortening the lat at some point of the ROM. Video on the right (BPak modification): by adjusting body position, the exercise now allows the lat to continue to shorten through the entire ROM. Also it allows the hand, elbow and shoulder to all align with machine path placing all the load on the lat and not joints or passive tissue. In addition, it also improves the exercise's strength profile, better matching the lat's resistance curve. Making it an all around AMAZING lat exercise. If you're having a hard time seeing the difference, look at the upper arm path. A fully shortened lat will always involve the upper arm essentially touching the side. If the elbow is "floating" or pointing out, something else has become the main mover of the upper arm. To be clear, the video on the left is not a "bad" BACK exercise, it may just be a less than optimal lat exercise. #mi40gym #mi40nation #EducateAndDominate #MuscleIntelligence #MuscleExpert #SqueezeItLikeItOwesYouMoney #Tampafitness #floridafit #NoWastedReps

Do you look like you're doing jumping jacks when you shoulder press? Try these execution tips from #Mi40Coach Tayler Jordan Ifbb Pro to be sure your getting those delts to grow with your dumbbell shoulder press. 1. Keep dumbbells slightly outside elbow joint 2. Squeeze elbows in towards ears 3. The end range at the top of the exercise is when the delt is fully contracted WITHOUT shrugging (letting your scapula elevate) 4. The end range at the bottom is when your front delt is fully shortened WITHOUT allowing your elbows to travel forward #mi40gym #educateanddominate #muscleintelligence #squeezeitlikeitowesyoumoney #tampafit #floridafitness #mi40nation #mi40 #muscleexpert

Shoulder training with #Mi40Coach Meghan Schwartz Rear delts or as @hypertrophycoach refers to them - those little baby fingers on your upper back. Often, rear delt training can turn into trap and teres training. When executing a rope face pull for rear delts - think about driving the elbows out during the concentric and use a slow eccentric tempo to keep tension in the rear delts. Try to keep the scapula in as stable a position as possible. If you feel your shoulder blades squeeze together at the end of the contraction, you've gone too far with the movement. #mi40gym #mi40 #NoWastedReps #Tampafitness #Floridafit #SqueezeItLikeItOwesYouMoney #muscleintelligence #muscleexpert

Coaching insights from #Mi40Coach Bryce Bahm: Everyone is a trainer. Everyone is the expert. Everyone has the experience required to take your health into their hands. Unfortunately, there are very few that can honestly say yes to all the above. Yet, it is becoming more and more common to meet someone who is a trainer, is an online coach, or works in some capacity with a trainer. How do you ensure you have the right trainer? A trainer that has your best interests, and your health at the forefront of the training program. In my opinion, it can be fairly simple. Your prospective trainer or current trainer must be able to constantly tell you what and why. What your training volume and frequency must be at and why. What your training session goal is and why. Why you are training with the effort and training stimulus you are and what for. Why your goals are reasonable or unreasonable. What kind of commitment it will take to get the physique you dream of. What accountability you must have on your own to keep progressing. What the expectation is right out of the gate to make goals come to fruition. This list can be extensive and detailed. And, it should be. Being a coach/trainer, is an expert level job. You need to be able to properly prototype, analyze, and assess client problems and make a strategic plan of solution. Your job is to produce results. But, not at the expense of the clients health. And, as a bonus, you should challenge your clients to think and ask questions. Great coaches make their clients better people all around. So be weary of the so called training expert. Not all coaches are built the same. Not all trainers have the same motives for why they do what they do. Can you trainer tell you what and why for every choice they make regarding your health? They should. #mi40gym #mi40 #educateanddominate #tampafit #lovewhatyoudo #inspire

Training tips from #Mi40Coach Meghan Schwartz Fitness Professional Hamstrings and glutes are both used for hip extension; however you can emphasize one muscle group more depending on your goal for that exercise. Take RDL's for example: from the lengthened position, initiation is the key. FORGET ABOUT THE BAR It does not exist. Keep your spine neutral and focus on pushing your hips back. For glute emphasis, initiate by squeezing the glutes together and then think about pulling the top of glutes down toward your heels. Notice the what happens at the feet - because one of the functions of the glutes is external rotation, your weight will shift to the outside of the feet as you pinch the glutes in towards each other when initiating from the lengthened position. #mi40gym #mi40nation #tampafitness #educateanddominate #nowastedreps #inspire #transform #floridafit #muscleintelligence
