Had a belter of a question in from Terry last week

 

And it’s probably something I should’ve addressed more, or brought more clarity on

 

Here is what the big fella asked

 

=============================================================

 

Morning Dewsy

 

Could you clarify something for me please

 

I’ve been following you and Steff for a while now, but I am confused about strength training

 

Should I be doing it? I follow a lot of other sports related fitness accounts and they all seem to be full of just strength work but you talk about dysfunctions so I’m worried to start strength training in case it does more harm than good

 

And light you can shed on this would be a big help

 

Many thanks

 

Terry

Awesome question Tel, and here’s the answer

 

If you are free of dysfunctions, and move well and freely, then crack on with strength training

 

There are massive benefits to it, so don’t be scared about getting stuck in

 

BUT….

 

Make sure your body is ready for it

 

Now we do a lot of screening, and talk to you a lot about it

 

But it doesn’t mean that all strength training gets put on the back burner

 

Say you’re fine on the overhead squat and inline lunge, but struggle with your hip hinge

 

We would put you on corrective exercises for the hip hinge but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t load the other patterns that are fine

 

So your prep may well be 3 drills that are working to help the hip hinge, then the main part of the session a loaded strength working on a squat pattern and unilateral work

 

Not a problem

 

We don’t want to throw the baby out with the bath water

 

Get the dysfunction out, but work around it

 

Obviously if you struggle a lot with the screening and have dysfunctions everywhere then you’ll have to go a bit slower but there are plenty of ways to work around it
