Merry Christmas everyone! Thank you for tuning in to what would normally be another Fey Fitness video. But today with the Christmas holiday landing on a Tuesday this year, I am not going to be filming a fitness video and instead spending the day with my loved ones.

Thank you for understanding and I look forward to talking to you all next week in another Fey Fitness video!

Happy Holidays,

STRONGER BACK SERIES: Banded Neutral Grip Pull-Up

STRONGER BACK SERIES:

Hello and welcome everyone to another edition of Fey Fitness! Today we are continuing with the Stronger Back Series by learning how to properly strengthen our back muscles with a Neutral Grip Banded Pull-Up.

Why Do a Neutral Grip Banded Pull-Up?

  • A Neutral Grip Banded Pull-Up will work a majority of back muscles, with a focus on the Latissimus Dorsi (also known as “lat” muscles. The lat muscles are vital to back health because they connect the spine, pelvis, ribs, scapula and upper arm. These muscles work by adducting, rotating and extending the arms through a full range of motion. They are also responsible for moving the arms back and down towards the hips.
  • The lat muscles act as stabilizers in many other exercises such as squats, deadlifts and bench presses. Our lats also protect our spine during exercises such as these.
  • By performing this exercise you can work: the Teres Minor, Infraspinatus, Teres Major, Posterior Deltoid, middle and lower Trapezius, Latissimus Dorsi, Biceps Brachii, Brachialis and Brachioradialis. That’s a whole mouthful of muscles! So put simply, the Neutral Grip Banded Pull-Up will work almost all back muscles and some muscles in your arms. Working all of these muscles at once will give you a very effective workout and increase the efficiency of your other upper body workouts by making sure you are hitting many different muscles during this compound movement to improve your holistic fitness lifestyle.
  • By increasing our muscle mass and lowering our body fat we reshape our back’s landscape. Reshaping the upper body in this manner can make us appear slimmer because the “V” shape starts at the back by being widest near the shoulders and tapering in at the waist. This is useful in creating that hourglass shape so many women want; and that “V” shape creates the desired shape so many men are after.

How to Perform a Neutral Grip Banded Pull-Up:

  1. Place the band (with a weight of your choice) around the handles of a pull-up bar.
  2. Put one, or both, feet into the strap and grasp the pull-up bar with a neutral grip.
  3. Roll the shoulders down and back, engage your core and keep your spine as straight as possible while using your back muscles to pull you up to the bar. PRO TIP: To increase the intensity of the movement, pause for a few seconds at the top of the pull before beginning to lower yourself back down.
  4. As you exhale, slowly lower yourself back down into the starting position.
  5. Repeat this motion 12-15 reps for 3 sets.

No Fey Fitness Video: Fey Is Sick!

Boo! And not just because it’s the week of Halloween. My friends have all been passing this cold around and it looks like it’s my turn to get it. Ugh! I’m sorry to be sick twice in one year. But as soon as I’m well you can expect another great fey fitness video.

Thank you for your patience!

No Video This Week: Fey Has No Voice!

cold-156666__340

Hello and welcome to the Tuesday episode of Fey Fitness!

Unfortunately, while I’m feeling much better than last week, my voice is still funky and it hurts to talk. So with that in mind I won’t be publishing a fitness video today.

Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and your patience while I recover from this illness. It’s wonderful to have such amazing followers and I can’t wait to see you all again next week when my voice is back.

Cheers,

Fey

Calm Shell for Outer Thighs and IT Bands

Hello and welcome everyone to another edition of Fey Fitness! Today I am teaching you how to do a beginner level hip abduction and IT Band workout called a Banded Clam Shell. This exercise is named as such because when you are performing the movement your legs look like a clam shell opening and closing. Banded Clam Shells are amazing for improving leg mobility and reducing pain or stiffness in conditions such as patellofemoral pain syndrome.

Also, this exercise is perfect for those of us with Atrial Fibrillation, as it will not spike our heart rate during the movements. Just be careful getting down onto the ground and back up again if you have severe AFib, or problems with your blood pressure. Remember, slow and steady wins the fitness race!

Why Do a Banded Clam Shell?

  • The clam shell exercise really works the gluteus medius. This is the abductor muscle that forms the outside edge of your booty and outside of your hip. So by working and strengthening this muscle you are increasing the functionality of your hips and lower body, and also developing a more rounded booty- to me that’s a win-win!
  • Your glutes (booty) are responsible for moving your hips and thighs, so these muscles need to be strong and healthy enough to provide functional and sport mobility. For example, climbing up and down stairs, getting in and out of chairs, or playing basketball.
  • Also the gluteus maximus, a prime muscle for hip extension, gets a good workout from this movement. The gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the body, and the one most people are looking to shape and strengthen with the squat and deadlift. So just remember, strong glutes equal a shapely booty!
  • And the IT Band, which is composed of elastic connective tissue called fascia, runs along the outside of the thigh from above the hip to below the knee. This tissue is very important because it allows the IT band to act like a giant spring to assist in walking, jumping or climbing.

How to Perform a Banded Clam Shell:

  1. Begin on the floor laying on your side with your hips, legs and feet stacked on top of one another and a band wrapped around your thighs between 2-3 inches above the knees.
  2. Bend the knees to approximately a 45-60 degree angle.
  3. Engage your core and keep your feet together as you raise the top thigh to the ceiling or sky slowly and in a controlled manner. Note: Keeping the feet together will create a hinge motion and your legs will resemble a clam opening up- hence the name.
  4. Hold this position for 1-2 seconds before slowly lowering the leg back to the starting position.
  5. After 15-20 reps, roll over and perform this movement on the other leg.
  6.  Repeat this motion for 15-20 reps and for 3 sets per leg.
