RECTUS ABDOMINIS: The most well-known and prominent abdominal muscle is the rectus abdominis. The rectus abdominis muscles, commonly referred to as the “abs,” are a pair of long, flat muscles that extend vertically along the entire length of the abdomen. The name rectus abdominis comes from the Latin words for “straight” and “abdominal,” indicating that its fibers run in a straight vertical line from the pelvis to the sternum. A strong tendinous sheath called the "linea alba," or white line, divides the rectus abdomens down the middle, and three more horizontal tendinous sheaths give the muscle its familiar "washboard" look in very fit athletes.

WHAT IS SHOULDER TENDONITIS? Shoulder tendonitis or tendonitis is an inflammation injury to the tendons of your shoulders rotator cuff. Inflammation is not always present in injuries to the shoulder tendons, but when it is, it is medically know as a rotator cuff tendinopathy or tendinopathies. A common cause of tendonitis is repeated micro-trauma to the rotator cuff tendon rather than a specific one time trauma

How Good Are Your Knees? Prevention of knee injuries, acute (knee ligament sprains) or chronic (tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis) is a concern of many. Any joint prevention program begins and ends with the strengthening of the muscles surrounding the joint. The muscles to focus on for the knee joint are knee extensors (quadriceps group) and the knee flexors (hamstring group).

Did you ever wonder, WHAT EXACLY IS A ROTATOR CUFF? The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint that stretches further than normal. Your shoulder has such an incredible range of motion that you can rotate it in any direction. However, what you sacrifice for having this phenomenal range of motion is joint stability. Over 20% of the adult population has been shown to have some degree of rotator cuff tear. Maintaining joint stability requires strong muscles that support the rotator cuff. The MedX pulldown does the job. Clarissa Keller demonstrates.

The David Leg Curl works the hamstring: biceps femoris, semimembranosus, semitendinosus and the gracilis.
 Slow motion high intensity strength training is a specific method of training where you lift and lower the weights slowly and deliberately minimizing force and momentum.

OSTEOPENIA WHAT IS IT? Osteopenia is an age related condition in which the bone mineral density is lower than usual. Osteopenia is an early warning sign for Osteoporosis. You can influence your own future bone health. The Surgeon General stated “It is clear…that (for) physical activity to specifically benefit bone health (it) should involve loading (stressing) the skeleton." If you suffer from Osteopenia, now is the time to take action because you can reverse bone loss with only one, thirty minute strength training session per week using the Slow Motion High Intensity Protocol. #fitness #health

Researchers have concluded that the peak load (heaviest weight that can be properly lifted) is more important than the number of reps.
