A lot of guys get on a Smith machine load up the bar and do shrugs or get heavy DB's & blast it out for a few reps.
The great thing about Olympic lifting is that it teaches you to really understand the whole body & generate awesome power so breaking down either a "power clean" to a "hang clean" without squatting down really puts emphasis on..
•Upper trapezius /• Rhomboids / •Extension through the hips helps work the glutes / •Stabilising the core muscles whilst you keep your back flat / •Grip strength is greatly improved / • Cardio is a bonus.
It's always good to mix up your routine anyway, so have a go & see how you get on.

Get offline & get out & about, getting to the gym enjoying a class hitting the weights you interact & meet people.
The goal-setting/goal-accomplishing cycle is a learned trait. From a very early age, Most winners start to reinforce this idea that if they set their mind to something and tirelessly work towards its accomplishment, the outcome will be positive, you gain good life experience either way.

Some things you need to consider if you're getting to a plateau in your training and your not quite breaking through with those fitness goals
Change it up!
Tempo : time under tension how fast or slow you go.
Range of motion: Full & partial repetitions ( see Matrix section)
Position: Open chain or closed chain exercise ( go to videos)
Weight: ...What % of your maximum lift are you working at & why?
You got to change your mindset & stop looking for a quick fix, you won’t find it online, my suggestion going forward, is to just get out & about, It can be a pain in the ass to get down to the gym but the interaction is real, the sweat tears the laughter the noise the hustle & bustle, the smells you cant avoid, the chatter in the locker room, the people that you aspire to.. some of us don’t get butterflies with our emotions…we get the whole Zoo!..that’s real.

I've been fortunate keeping a healthy body but a few years ago I had a serious neck injury,
I was recommended Torben by a personal training colleague and true to form he put me right in a few treatments, I'll always be thankful for that, as I kid you not I struggled to walk to the clinic and was overwhelmed by the injury & the stress it was causing resulting in me breaking down tears on his treatment table..(yep first time we met, I laugh now) for I though that was it, he just gave me a reassuring look (as he does) then did his Jedi like work, I walked out thinking...
"What the.. that was "fcunkig Billairnt!”..😄
The video above is a couple of years ago with me being treated, this time I had been over zealous doing a 80kg+ snatch,( Olympic lift) without properly mobilising my hip, so unfortunately my body compensated elsewhere, this is where Torben is great as he deals with top athletes in a wide range of sports & is so experienced with the working bio-mechanics of the human body you just know you're in good hands.

In the last few weeks, your gym has probably been as packed as an IMAX theater with more strange creatures than Star Wars latest saga "The Force Awakens".
If you’re one of those resolutioners ready to turn those holiday cookies and malty winter brews into lean muscle, you should know what to expect. Gym Wildlife gives you a National Geographic-esque look at the creatures you’ll find on those sweaty-ass benches and barely moving treadmills.
"TRAIN, EAT, WORK, SLEEP, REPEAT" AND LIFE GOES ON...
EXERCISE : Challenge yourself do something different.
EAT: We all like our food & if you're picky or just have a preference for certain dishes, then just prepare it yourself & take your lunch to work... What are you having today?
WORK: Life can be stressful so you will usually release a hormone named cortisol, its good & bad just depends on the time of day & for how long.
SLEEP AND RECOVERY: There are 168 hours in the week if you are lucky you can get 30 -40hours sleep in the week ideally it would be 7-8 hours each night.
