Have control when you train!

It seems as over the years awareness of health and the need to exercise regularly has grown in our society. Yet. It seems that many people are still injured, getting sick and so on. In fact exercise instead of being something that gives people their health back, it can be something that puts people in the doctor's office or worse yet the emergency room.

Then there is also the thought that certain exercises are bad and should be avoided like the plague. These people that believe this fallacy usually end up demonizing movement patterns such as: deadlifts, overhead presses, push-ups, glute/ham raises and so-on. It is funny because, it seems that these people think that they will get hurt even from looking at the particular exercise in question!

These two groups have something in common in my opinion, which is that they never learned how to develop control and proper technique in their training and as a result feel pain in a move or end up hurting themselves over time.

This post is not going to tell you how to develop control, but to help you understand why you will need to do so.

Movement:

At Escape we teach a baseline and a standard for acceptable movement. Within that guideline there is a lesser chance of injury and an increase in performance. Those two factors that this standard is broken down into is: mobility and stability.

Mobility:

The ability of a joint to throughout a full range of motion without compensating or over working another joint. E.G. if your hips aren't mobile, your knee could get affected by it.

Discipline:

This quality is using your will to hold your position after you learn hot properly do it while you lift heavy enough to challenge it, which is necessary to get results from your fitness training.

All of these qualities must be trained and maintained as one goes throughout their training for fat-loss, sports training and any other goal. This means that not only will you need to do drills to help improve these qualities, but will also have to make sure that you form is as near to perfect as possible as you train.

In other words you will have to have control over yourself and body as you do any exercise to make sure that you are improving/maintaining your movement quality, mobility, stability as you are challenged by your training.
