Soreness aka DOMS is what it is. Dean Somerset with the post of the week at Show Up Fitness

Soreness, aka Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is A indication of work being done. It's not necessarily a good or bad thing. We should focus on getting our clients in and out of the gym in the SAFEST way possible, not annihilating them to the point where they can't even move. If you've been training for years and never are sore, it may be time for you to increase the intensity, volume, eccentrics & time under tension (TUT) and try a new program. Otherwise, educate your clients around soreness and how it's not the ONLY indicator for an amazing workout.

Top Nutrition Post: Antidiet Dietitian

Show Up Fitness top nutrition post of the week goes to the Antidiet Dietitian

Astrid Naranjo aka The Antidiet Dietitian takes the cake with how to lose 20-lbs in 1-2 weeks becuase YOU DON'T! There's ~3,500 calories in 1-lb of fat. The average person will create too much of a deficit (500+ calories) and perform endless cardio which is a great way to FAIL with your “diet.” Remember the word DIET means what you consume over the lifespan of YOUR LIFE! Instead of being too drastic, focus on lifting weights 4x a week, drink more water, aim for whole food sources of protein and focus on the other, more controllable aspects of the Body Mass Equation (Stress, Sleep, environmental factors, mindset etc.)

Top Strength & Conditioning Posts:

Erica Sutter: I interviewed Erica in my book How to Become A Successful Personal Trainer and she has all the tenets of HELP NICK. Here is a great post on deceleration with soccer players. Listen to her podcast The Soccer Queens Podcast HERE

The Soccer Queens Podcast by Erica Suter has the top strength and conditioning post for Show Up Fitness with this Deceleration post.

Clown of the Week: Doctor Reef with a continuation from last weeks DUMB post from Derrick Henry.

Clown of the week post goes to Doctor Reef and this DUMB exercise. WHY? Sure it'll get a ton of IG likes, but what's the risk vs reward? This is why trainers have a bad rep as discussed in How to Become A Successful Personal Trainer.

Run 1-mile every other day. Steps are cool (I'm aiming for 16k per day) but as fitness professionals, we owe it to our clients to be in the best shape of ourlives. Are you?
