Cross-Training with Booty Quake: Pre-Hab! Proper Form
Ladies and Gentlemen: prepare yourselves for a hard truth!
Life is much too short to waste even a minute of it doing half-ass workouts with bad form.
Here comes another one: getting an injury from cross-training is super super lame. No one at the office wants to hear about your derby injury that you got from doing squats improperly.
In this session I go over common mistakes and some helpful hints to make standard strength and power training safer and more effective. I recommend you watch the video, then find yourself a mirror and observe yourself doing the movements – are you tweaking on your knee in a lunge? Is your weight really back over your heels in the squat (and are you getting at least to 90 degrees, if not lower?).
“Sure, sure,” you say, “other people TOTALLY use poor form! But not me, I’m super awesome at this… right?”
You could go ahead and keep believing that… OR… you could watch this video and learn some sweet tricks and tips that might just turbocharge the results you get from cross-training, forever after. Bold statement, I know. But what if I’m right?
Booty Quake has been playing and coaching with the Terminal City Rollergirls since 2007, and created Roller Derby Athletics (www.rollerderbyathletics.com) in 2012 to provide training resources for derby athletes. The site provides information on mental training, nutrition, injury prevention/recovery and fitness, including workout videos. Proper off-skate training has had a major impact on her own success in derby, and she has helped hundred of leaguemates and skaters from around the world on that journey too.
