  • Why We Use Kipping In Workouts And How It Helps

    Why We Use Kipping In Workouts And How It Helps

    Kipping pull ups are not strict pull ups, but they aren't supposed to be. That's not really a critique, more of an observation. All kipping movements and strict movements have different purposes. To not be able to recognise this is not the fault of the kip. Strict movements allow us to develop strict strength and often don’t need us to be highly skilful or overly proficient. Kipping a lot of the time is the opposite. Kipping is the movement we use during gymnastics based workouts to increase volume, intensity and conditioning. While they can develop strength, that is functional to the movement itself. By utilising a kip we are able to build up momentum ....

  • Every Kilogram Counts When Weightlighting: Here's Why

    Every Kilogram Counts When Weightlighting: Here's Why

    Every kilo counts! Let’s discuss why the smaller weight plates are arguably some of the most important plates in the gym. Exercise prescription is science/ evidence based and written with the intention that if followed correctly, adaptation will occur. When we work off percentages for the strength pieces, the weight is prescribed for a specific adaptation. Just like goldilocks porridge being not too cool or not too warm, our version is not too light or not too heavy. We can only reach these numbers accurately if we use the correct small plates. This is also important when increasing weight between sets. It is important to take into account how much your increases are ....

  • In Order To Get Good At Anything, You Have To Do It Badly First

    In Order To Get Good At Anything, You Have To Do It Badly First

    I have had countless conversations with people over the years about earning the right to be better. You must understand to be good at anything, you must suck for a bit first. Anyone that started anything sucked at the start. 

This is why we should never compare our week 1 with someone’s year 1 and your year 1 with someone’s year 10. 

Going a step further here we usually follow this cycle. Good - Not so good - Good again. 

In the gym you may become the best scaling athlete in the gym, win the rounds then you up your weights, learn a new skill and in order to practise them in a workout you have to suck again for a while …. Until you don’t. In any sport, ....

  • Starting A New Journey: Joining Rebuild

    Starting A New Journey: Joining Rebuild

    It has been just over a year since I joined Rebuild, but it feels like I have been here a lot longer. I had no crossfit experience coming into the gym, so it was a learning curve for me. What the hell is an EMOM?! Haha. Sean and James saw I had good knowledge of Olympic lifting, I’m studying exercise physiology and I have a can-do attitude, so they took me on and showed me the ropes. Literally; they showed me how to climb a rope. It was quite scary for me to apply to Rebuild, I felt like I needed a new job. I am sure many people can relate to feeling a sense of loyalty and security in a job they may like but not love. That was how I felt in my old job, I enjoyed it but ....

  • Rebuild Workout With Friends

    We don’t do ‘free trials’ or try before you buy classes. We don’t just let anyone into our gym, join our community and be in our classes. You might think this is strange but it’s a conscious decision we’ve made to protect our membership base. You see when people do free drop ins or trials, they typically aren’t familiar with our coaching style and require far more time than anyone else on the floor - this detracts from our members’ experience in class. We want to make sure everyone is ready and comfortable before coming into class, we want them to understand Rebuild. But as a one off, we’ve decided to open our doors to the public ....

  • How Words Create Worlds And Why Physiotherapists Have To Be Careful How They Speak - By Lou Savill

    How Words Create Worlds And Why Physiotherapists Have To Be Careful How They Speak - By Lou Savill

    I’m sure that I come across as pedantic at times when it comes to language. I’m picky about the words I use and not shy about disagreeing with those who are less so. In my profession, words create worlds. They can inspire change, instil fear and change the trajectory of a person’s life. Even when delivered with positive intentions, certain phrases and explanations can have a dramatic negative impact. Take this story from a woman with persistent low back pain from a qualitative research paper: “Basically all I’ve kind of been told to do by physios is to work on my core...I’ve been tested by various different physios, and Pilates, and I’m ....
