The two strength exercises all MX-ers should do!
Todays episode is a bit different as I recorded it as a live YouTube video. Watch it at www.youtube.com/c/danrobertstv - In all the excitement (when I say excitement, I mean my lack of planning and having notes) I forgot to mention a few key things...
1) If you are used to lifting then doing 4 sets do 6-12 reps with 90 seconds works great for both exercies.
2) There are mulitude of functional benefits to both exercies that make them very useful for athletic living. For example, the 2nd exercise exposes an improves the Glute medius, which (along with your core) helps to stabilse pelvis and is vital for pre-hab and rehab of runenrs knee and many other lower limb issues.
3) Both exercises burn a lot of fat, improve your fundamental raw athletic skill, tone up legs & butt and do it all without bulking up qauads.... this is why they are useful to my clients! - I rarely program is traditional squats as most of my female clients are already quad dominant (due to prevous bad training habits & modern gym culture favouring strong legs and too many HITT or Spin workouts ) and having a lean and fit body vibe is our focus.
