Rotational Row to Good Morning

What is rotational training and why do we need them?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This is not just some sort of fancy term that I like to use. Rotation occurs in every day life like when we unload the groceries from the car or picking up something from the floor and mainly in sport activities like throwing a punch, a ball or ice skating, basketball and so forth…⠀ The point is why not training this pattern specifically to create more fluid and efficient movement to enhance performance and avoid injuries. ⠀ With clever programming this is all possible. The key is to load the hips gradually, taking account of one’s hip mobility to start with and progress into a more complex movement pattern when they are ready. ⠀ In this video I combine a Bent Over Row (in the transverse plane) and a Good Morning. Both are powerful hip hinge exercise to improve the trunk, core stability and rotational power.⠀This dynamic Lateral Bag Drag meant to activate the body’s natural chains, brace the core, open up the hips and provide greater thoracic mobility. What else do you need to get ready for working out?

Snatch Variations

Being powerful in different planes of motion?
Generating power and produce movement in different planes of motion is what real functionality means.⠀ This can be easily translated into every area of life especially in sports environments. These DVRT Snatch exercises teach our body to train smart and perform better in real life too.⠀

Sheena's Circuit

I’m very happy with Sheena’s progress who initially signed up for a month only and currently she’s 3 months in doing training sessions with me. She is now feel better about herself and see her body transforming and able to wear clothes that she wasn’t able to do before. She also managed to do a crow pose in her yoga routine which she couldn’t do it for years. I love seeing how @sheena_egby progressed in only a few months. She is now much stronger and able to do more complex movements than ever before with decent load.⠀ Today, she was doing a tough 20/40 workout with 5 different exercises and managed to challenged her limits on most movements I believe.⠀

Victoria's HK Arc Press and Cossack Squat

We’ve been using the Half Kneeling Arc Press with the Core Strap with a few clients and I must say that the feedback is great. Taking a great exercise to even a greater level with adding the extra resistance. It results in more control (Impossible to rush through) all the way through the movement, let those stabilizers to kick in. ⠀ Here’s Victoria working on this anti-rotational exercise along side with some cossack press out squats.⠀

Cath's Workout

Outdoor training with Cath using the #dvrt system to get real life strong.⠀ What does it mean?⠀
It just simply means that you can enjoy any activities that you put your mind to. We don’t train to look good. That is just happens as a `side effect`. Of course everyone wants to feel toned and good about themselves.⠀ However using the DVRT system allows us to focus on human movement and find the weakest link in the chain and correct it while building muscle and strength at the same time. So that you can become injury free.⠀ Cath is a busy mum of two teen sons and been training with me several months now. ⠀ She said to me recently, `I don’t remember the last time I had back pain`. This is the kind of feedback I like to hear.⠀Here’s Victoria working on this anti-rotational exercise along side with some cossack press out squats.⠀

Pete Press out and Lateral Step Rot Press

Working on Pete’s shoulder blades with the Half Kneeling Press Outs and using an additional resistance band attached to the USB to have more feedback and core engagement. As well as some #dvrt conditioning. Btw Pete has completed his first body weight pull up in age 60. (not in the video)⠀ Way to go…:)⠀

Jan's Shinbox Get up to Lunge Press

Jan is rocking on the Shinbox Get Up to Lunge with Press combo! He is another client of mine who has come so far with improved mobility, strength and conditioning.⠀ This Shinbox hip extension exercise is great for opening the hips and get more range of motion, can be used for warm ups before any type of lower body dominant training and easy to progress into a Lunge combined with Press/Pull.

Lin's Crossover DL to Rotational Press

Lin’s been training with me for almost a year now and she got so much stronger and fitter. She’s able to do the most complex DVRT variations with such an ease. Like the Crossover DL to Clean to Rotational Press. I love that she’s always open for a new challenge and complete that with elegance.⠀

Dave's Crossover Shovelling Golf Swing

I have been working with Dave for over a year now and he has come so far. He was recovering after a shoulder injury and hadn’t done much exercise. We were able to increase his mobility and flexibility while building muscle mass. Over a year he lost 15kg and feels better than ever. (his words not mine).⠀ Recently we’ve been working on more specific areas like improving his golf game and like always using #dvrt to tailor his routine to his needs.⠀

Dave Band Exercises

We love working on more precise movement with a resistance band alongside DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Fitness​’s Core Strap. Here’s Dave​ demonstrating a perfect Hip Hinge/Good Morning with that extra resistance providing better movement quality and he’s also doing a more advanced side plank variation with a Fly. ⠀
