Around 2x body weight safety bar squats from @natmiksa . Along with a phenomenal HALF-TARP from coach @j_payne05 . #squats #safetybarsquats #coachpopewouldbeproud #lewisfitnessandperformance #strongsquats #stronglegs #athleticdevelopment
I just wanted to give an example of what the HALF-TARPS will look like form/fit. The logo will be only white, smaller and on the left side of the shirt. Along with “FERDA” on the right sleeve. Important to know that the mullet flow is not included. PRE-ORDER ONLY. $15.00 by January 22nd . That is the cut off time for orders. - - #halftarpsferda #ferda #halftarp #lewisfitnessandperformance #athleticapparel
It’s not always needed to throw out intense various. Most times the basics need to be mastered, then re-mastered. But for @natmiksa , she is at a point where the basics are no longer challenging her or creating a sympathetic response, so we have to find ways to up the ante. #birddogbagdrag #core #progressions #strongathlete #lewisfitnessandperformance #athleticdevelopment
With the the recent fashion trend of the HALF-TARPS going on in our facility, we want to know your opinion on them. Comment and discuss any thoughts you may have. #halftarps #tarpsoffboys #halftarpsferda #lewisfitnessandperformance
For athletes, scapula health is an importance that is often overlooked. These CARS are much higher up on the progressions of scap-cars. The goal is full elevation, protraction, retraction and depression of the scapulas. Here is @brotein_milkjake doing both forward and reverse hanging scap-cars slow and controlled. #mobility #scapularstability #movementmatters #lewisfitnessandperformance
Often we see people moving big weight bilaterally (squats) and it’s easy (even for me) to get caught up in being mesmerized by it, but something that should be considered is this: what is more effective for athletes? A 500lb squat, or being able to rear foot 225? The single leg work will carry over more effectively to any sort of athletic development. #rearfootelevatedsplitsquat #unilateraltraining #lewisfitnessandperformance #athleticdevelopment #sportsperformancetraining @agreenawalt3
The trick with barbell rollouts is to imagine that there is a straight line from the top of your head to your knees, as a reminder to not let your hips anterior pelvic tilt, keeping a nice neutral position to allow the most core engagement possible. @nate.fischer14 came back to us for a couple of weeks while on college break. It’s always a great feeling when our athletes come back to see us. #lacrosse #barbellrollout #corestrengthening #winterbreak #offseasontraining #lewisfitnessandperformance
Merry Christmas to all of our athletes and their families this holiday season.
A movement that is not easily mastered. The chop with lateral leg lower causes the athletes to control themselves in areas that are more difficult with the added bonus of challenging the CNS with coordination. Fun times in the summer with @coyotekayode @jesterweah and @jamesconner #athleticdevelopment #core #ultimatesandbag #coretraining #strongcore #athletictraining #football #basketball #strengthandconditioningcoach #eriepennsylvania #lewisfitnessandperformance
Congrats to @jamesconner on making his first #probowl. Such a great honor to see his hard work at LFP this summer paying off this season. You all know his great story but please realize, we are only at the beginning. #nfl #football #lewisfitnessandperformance #steelers #runningback #erie #offseasontraining
Never sleep on the hamstrings. It’s easy to see the flash of bigger quad dominate movements and get caught up in utilizing those in a strength and conditioning program, but these smaller movements are right along with the building blocks of an athletes training. @agreenawalt3 #stronghamstrings #hamstringworkout #athleticdevelopment #lewisfitnessandperformance #strengthcoach #summervibes
The sandbag bucket/bear hug squat is a great way for a beginner to learn the correct movement that is the squat. The sandbag allows the athlete to have their center of gravity in the perfect position to maintain form and still be under load without the large risk of falling forward or backwards or turning the squat pattern into a hinge, which can sometimes be the case with young athletes first learning how to squat. #squat #athleticdevelopment #squatdevelopment #strengthtraining #lewisfitnessandperformance
Throwback to Friday mornings when the Men’s Mercyhurst Basketball team showed up at 5:30am and put in some work. #snatch #explosiveworkout #basketball #strengthandconditioningcoach #lewisfitnessandperformance
#tomahawktuesday . “It’s either full send, or no send” with the drop step tomahawk throw. • • • • It simply translates as such: if you’re going to do something, do it right. Commit 100% and just send it. If you want to be a top level athlete then you need the right nutrition, both on & off season training In the weight room, the correct amount of sleep and the full belief in yourself. • • So, it’s either full send, or no send.
