Exercise of the Week

         Hi! My name is Munashe Masawi  and I’m a recent graduate from Queen’s University in Kinesiology. I have recently started playing golf and believe I can bring forth some of my knowledge in human kinetics and exercise physiology to wisdom in golf. 

                This blog is about the daily steps on the road to health and fitness for all of us, whether it began years ago in youth sports or just in the last five minutes. It’s about going to the gym, or going outside, and getting a good workout. It’s about finding ways to shop, cook and dine in a way that supports a healthier lifestyle. My goal with Wisdom in Golf is to provide research based advice in fitness, mobility and nutritional information that promotes a positive lifestyle for all. I’m excited to begin this journey with you and can’t wait to share my knowledge with you.

Movement of the week:

In my first post, I would like to start with the ‘reverse lunge-twist’.

Instructions

Hold a dumbbell, medicine ball or plate out in front of you to chest level. Then take a big step back with your left foot while simultaneously twisting your upper torso to the right side. Your right leg should be 90 degrees parallel to the ground at the end of the movement. Return to center and push through your right heel to stand back up. Repeat the move on the other side.

Purpose of the movement:

The lunge is a great lower body exercise, it strengthens the glutes and legs and it improves the flexibility of the hips. Adding the twist to this movement forces you to engage your core and work on your abs and obliques at the same time.  

See you all next week for our next movement!

    The hard part for me doing this movement is controlling the postural balance during the simultaneous rotation during the step back. Do you segment your focus throughout the movement??

    • Shawn Clement

      Hi, yes actually! Its takes about 2-3 reps to obtain fluid movement of the exercise. It takes some time to activate your stability muscles for this movement as well. If you are just starting out for the first time, the best way is to segment the lunge and then apply the side rotation.

    I could not resist commenting. Well written! I have been surfing on-line
    more than 3 hours today, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It is beautiful value enough for me. In my view, if all web
    owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the internet will probably
    be much more useful than ever before. I couldn’t resist commenting.
    Exceptionally well written! http://Plumbing.com/

    Right now it appears like WordPress is the preferred

    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses?

    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.

    • Shawn Clement

      Hi!

      I use WordPress and it helps to organize all the responses from pending, spam or trash etc.

    may anybody get that type of info in such an ideal method of writing?
    I’ve a presentation next week, and I am at the search for such info.

    • Shawn Clement

      Hi Geoffrey,

      Thanks for always tuning in on our work. And I’m not sure to be honest because this how I have organized my information from what I studied at university.

    I know this site provides quality dependent articles and additional stuff, is there any
    other web site which offers these stuff in quality?

    • Shawn Clement

      Hi Cindi,

      We are the only website that create this information this way, other forum’s that I research from are journals that I pay for. There is a website called “The Sport Journal” that offers free information about any quality stuff you if that helps.

      All the best,

      Munashe

    Hi! I just want to offer you a huge thumbs up for the excellent info you’ve got right here on this post.
    I am returning to your web site for more soon.

  19. Shawn Clement

    Hi Adam

    well you have a few option you can try. you build a website that you can weblog or join reddit which can help you build a community which is equivalent to a blog. Reddit would be a cheaper alternative because operating a website monthly can range from $200 to $500 monthly and you may have to pay unto $3000-$9000 for an upfront cost when starting the weblog. This is all dependant upon your business about. I hope this helped.

    All the best,

    Munashe
