My name is Jeremy and I run the Strength and Stability website.
I am passionate about fitness and I want to provide you with a stack of quality information to help you get into peak physical condition by developing your “functional” or “real world” strength.
Now…a couple of things I want to lay down now about the information I provide…
Firstly, I don’t believe in reinventing the wheel which is why, when I publish relevant video/s within an article you will notice that the videos are usually not my own. Why go to the trouble of making a video of an exercise for example when there are other fitness experts that have already gone to the trouble of doing so? That would be a waste of time in my opinion. If their video is good, and can benefit you, why shouldn’t I use it.
Secondly, I hate BS which is why I will only recommend products that I have personally tried and actually BELIEVE IN!
My experience comes from years of physical training and conditioning in a Tier 1 CT Unit.
I have followed programs designed to prepare applicants for SF (Special Forces) selection including the SAS (Special Air Service). I have lifted weights, done high intensity programs/workouts such as Crossfit and others, Kettlebell work and MORE.
Hell, I’ve even done some” as seen on TV programs like P90X.
You name it, I’ve probably tried or been exposed to it.
So…from all those years of experience what have I learnt?
I have learnt that movements that are not “functional” or “natural” cause injuries. Sooner or later it will happen. Trust me, its happened to me numerous times. The last injury was the worst and required surgery to my shoulder.
I have also learnt that functional, real world strength provides you with everything you need to overcome ANY physical obstacle. The only thing that can hold you back once you achieve these levels of strength and conditioning is your mind.
That shoulder injury was the final straw for me, and it is when I began to look into the history of physical training, what works and what doesn’t, and when injuries began to become common place (and accepted as a common occurrence).
So….what I have found (and experienced) is that in order to achieve “real world” functional strength, we should all be using exercise programs that consist of a combination of “old school” Calisthenics, Plyometrics, and Isometrics exercises.
This is because you move/lift etc, in “natural” directions and ranges of motion that your body and limbs were meant to.
This is the sort of information you can expect to find here at Strength and Stability.
Anyway, thats enough about me and my thoughts.
I hope that you enjoy my articles and make the most of the advice offered.
If you have any questions about your training, feel free to get in touch.
All the best on your Journey.
