The Real Challenge is in the Kitchen

Strength in Conditioning for Friday, April 11, 2014a

For many of us, staying disciplined in the gym is not a challenge. We enjoy coming to SICFIT Scottsdale to see our friends and to get our daily dose of post-workout endorphins. The real challenge lies in the kitchen! Nutrition is the foundation of your fitness; it simply is not possible to burpee, OLY lift, or run your way out of  bad diet. SICFIT Scottsdale has got your back with all the information and support you need to get and keep your diet in check. Join us April 15, 2014 at 7:30pm-8:30pm at SICFIT Scottsdale to learn how to use food to reach your performance or weight loss goals.

Strengthen Your Core with FlexibilityRx

 

Strength in Conditioning for Wednesday, April 9, 2014

“A well-rounded strength & conditioning program consists of upper and lower body pulls (pull-ups, deadlifts), presses (pushups, squats), as well as core exercises consisting of ‘anti’ movements.  The three types of ‘anti’ movements that develop the stabilizing function of the core are anti-lateral-flexion (side-planks), anti-extension (RKC planks), and anti-rotation (rotatory band plank).  This week’s FlexibilityRX sequence focuses on three movements that develop rotatory core stability.” -Kevin Kula of FlexibilityRx

SICFIT Weighs in on Weight Loss

 

Strength in Conditioning for Tuesday, April 8, 2014

At SICFIT Scottsdale, we work hard to provide you with a solid, healthy foundation to help you lose and manage your weight. From nutrition seminars, daily fitness classes, and even personal weight loss coaching, we have all the resources you need to achieve and maintain your body’s healthy weight. Let’s do this weight loss thing the right way and make it last a lifetime!

SICFIT Scottsdale: Strengthen Your Life

 

Strength in Conditioning for Friday, April 4, 2014

Sometimes when we wake up in the morning we simply don’t feel like showing up for our lives. We’re tired, burnt out, and all the things that we usually enjoy suddenly seems like annoyances. Sometime when we feel this way, it is our body and mind’s way of telling us that we need to slow down, take a break, and rejuvenate. If this sounds like you, perhaps it is time to take a vacation from your everyday life and reconnect with what is important to you.

Other times when we don’t feel like showing up for our lives it is because we have spent too much time in the passenger seat and need to grab onto the steering wheel to create some momentum. If this sounds like you, make sure you do the things today that your tomorrow self will thank you for. SICFIT Scottsdale is here to support and strengthen you so that when it comes to your life, you can SHOW UP AND DON’T QUIT!

Lateral-Stability Sequence

Heavy squatters with low-back pain often have a QL strength difference – a 5% difference in fatigue resistance per side in the side plank is correlated with low-back pain. The Single-Leg RDL band variation trains the glutes in 3D (extension/abduction/external-rotation), while the kettlebell carry integrates QL with contralateral glute function. Use this sequence to bulletproof your knees and low-back and watch your lifts skyrocket.

Do You Even Function, Bro?

 

Strength in Conditioning for Thursday, April 3, 2014

At SICFIT Scottsdale, you won’t find anyone doing calf raises, lateral pull-downs, or spending hours on end on an elliptical. To us, training one muscle at a time or working cardio exclusively makes no sense what-so-ever. Instead, the SICFIT Scottsdale physical fitness methodology uses functional movements to condition and train the body in the way it was meant to be used! Functional movements challenge us to tap into our body’s fullest expression of power, and channel it competently during physical tasks. Functional exercises not only make us stronger in the gym, but strengthens our command over our lives as well.

Learn OLY From The Pros

 

Strength in Conditioning for Tuesday, April 1, 2014

The Olympic Lifts are some of the most complex, dynamic movements we do here at SICFIT Scottsdale. We program them because of their fantastic ability to train nearly every marker of physical fitness: strength, agility, speed, power, coordination, flexibility, balance. You name it, the Clean & Jerk and Snatch can help you get it. This is why SICFIT Scottsdale requires all of our coaches to learn from the pros, so they can then pass along their knowledge to you! If you want to learn the ins and outs of these lifts to further your coaching career or simply your knowledge as an athlete, you definitely want to sign up for this weekend’s USAW Sports Performance Coaching Certification on 4/5 and 4/6. Click here to ensure your spot!
