Loosen Your Hips

Keep your heels on the floor when you squat. If you can't, your hip flexors
are too tight. Try this stretch: Hold onto the sides of the squat rack and lower
yourself until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold for 30 seconds.
Return to a standing position, then repeat five times.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!


For a Better Warmup, Train Your Brain

Don't forget to warm up your brain. Preparing your central nervous system for
activity is just as important as preparing your muscles. That's because your
central nervous system tells your muscles when to contract. Try standing on
one leg while you squat down, and touch the floor in front of it with your
opposite hand. Do two sets of 10 to 12 repetitions with each leg.

Save Your Back

Squeeze your butt muscles when you lift weights over your head.
You'll force your body into a position that automatically stabilizes
your spine, which lowers your risk of back injuries.

Use Iron, Get The Lead Out

Lift weights to run faster. A study in the Journal of Applied Physiology
found that 8 weeks of resistance training improved experienced runners'
5-K times by 30 seconds.

Tape Your Jams

If you have a finger that is frequently jammed, tape it to a neighboring
finger when you play sports. Together the two fingers will be stronger
and less likely to bend at an odd angle.
