AVOID ELBOW & SHOULDER 

PAIN & INJURY

In this Video our head coach Nick Gtn Mason tells you how to avoid common elbow and shoulder injuries caused by Calisthenics. He demonstrates the simple technique of repositioning your hands which changes the direction of your elbows. The two exercises used today was Dips and Pressups. Many of you may or may not know that these 2 exercises are foundation Calisthenics exercises. The problem is many of you do it in an incorrect form and suffer for it later.


TRY THESE SLIDING PUSHUPS (ADVANCED)

For all those with advanced strength I challenge to give this exercie a try. Not only is it tough on the chest but even tougher on the core. We also advice to place material that is slidable on the tip of your trainers to protect them from any damage. Please tag us on @Gtnfitness for us to see your attempts. Good luck everyone

SHOULD YOU DRINK SMOOTHIES LIKE THESE? ARE THEY HEALTHY?

I decided to talk on smoothies that you all see sold in your stores. Many people see the ingredients within these smoothies and think that they are drinking a product bursting with Vitamins and Minerals and no rubbish. This is not true... fact is all the smoothies sold at stores such as wholefoods, planet organic is junk. Think about it

ENGAGE YOUR CORE THE 

CORRECT WAY

In this Video we see Gtn Fitness coach Nick Gtn Mason demonstrate how to engage and activate your core muscles. This is very overlooked by many, but iit is important to know that with a stronger core you will be stronger with all exercises you currently do and plan to do in the future.

THE PERFECT PULLUP

Many of you love to do Pullups but you may be doing it incorrectly. The big question is are you working predominantly your arms or your back. When you do Pullups correctly it will create a V Shape back and your back will be strong. Yes these are harder but if you want to do it, do it right.
