[11/24/20]   Many runners experience persistent pain on the outside of their thigh and/or knee. In some cases, the iliotibial (IT) band can contribute to or be responsible for such irritation. Although all runners are different and cases of IT band-related pain differ, many of those experiencing such pain benefit from glute strengthening exercises. The following is a progression of the hip bridge, a foundational glute exercise.

1) Double Leg Hip Bridge
- Two feet on the ground
- While keeping your core tight, lift your hips up towards the ceiling, squeezing your glutes together as you do so
- Try not to arch your lower back as you lift your hips up

2) "Two Up, One Down" Hip Bridge
- Keep your core tight and lift your hips up with two feet on the ground
- At the top of the bridge, lift one leg up and slowly lower your hips with one leg in contact with the floor

3) Single Leg Hip Bridge March
- Keep your core tight and lift your hips up with two feet on the ground
- While holding up your hips at the top, slowly lift one leg up off of the ground, maintaining the bridge position with one leg

4) Single Leg Hip Bridge
- Keep your core tight and lift your hips up with one leg on the ground
- Try to maintain your pelvic position as you lift your hips up; try not to let one side of your pelvis drop as you lift up

We all have days when we don't feel like going to the gym. However, those are the days when you really need to go. Break through that mental barrier and make the decision that you won't regret later.

Important Member Update: All WAC Members and Team Members ages 5 and older must wear face coverings over the nose and mouth throughout the Club.

We are fortunate to have been open amidst a pandemic since June of this year, but with cases in the state rising dramatically, we would like to remind you of everything we’re doing and what is expected of you, our members. Together, we can help slow the spread of Covid-19 and continue to stay open, providing a place for members to work out.

We continue to adhere to our enhanced cleaning and safety protocols that meet or exceed health authority guidelines. We’re committed to keeping your environment clean, down to the very air you breathe inside the Club. For more information on our procedures, please visit our Safer Than Ever page. https://www.thewac.com/public/safer-than-ever

We need your help. Due to the significant increase of Covid-19 cases in Wisconsin, it is necessary, for the time being, to revise our mask policy: All WAC Members and Team Members ages 5 and older must wear face coverings over the nose and mouth throughout the Club. Individuals who are unable to wear a face mask due to a medical condition must wear a face shield*. If you do not have a mask or face shield, the WAC can provide one for you to use.

Face coverings or shields must be worn in all fitness spaces, including the fitness floor, group exercise rooms, locker rooms and all other common areas. Beginning Monday, November 23, we will be enforcing this procedure to maximize member safety and to remain open.

Masks and shields are not required in the following conditions: when eating, drinking, swimming, showering and while in the steam room, sauna or outside. In these situations, members must remain at least 6 feet apart from those outside of their household.

Basketball court update: Games are not allowed unless supervised by a WAC Team Member (i.e. Basketball Leagues). A mask or face shield must be worn at all times, and a limited number of individuals will be allowed per hoop. Please see your club for details.

We are in the business of keeping our fellow Wisconsinites healthy. It is, quite literally, our life’s work. And, while this updated policy may seem inconvenient to some, we believe the added safety is worth any inconvenience. Our goal is to continue to provide a welcoming place for our members to stay active and healthy, and staying open depends on our ability to help slow the spread of the virus.

We believe fitness is vital in our community’s health and wellness. And, for many of us, the WAC is more than just a fitness club; it’s home. We love it here, so let’s work together to protect our fellow lifters, our cycle classmates, our yoga buddies, our Front Desk team members…our WAC Family.

When we look out for one another, everyone wins. If you have questions about our updated policy, please reach out to the General Manager at your club.
We and our dedicated teams at every WAC location thank you for stepping up and wearing a mask. This will allow us to keep our doors open and continue to provide the exceptional facilities, attentive service and engaging programming that you’ve come to expect from us.

See you in the club,
Keith, Ray, Chez and Keith

Take care of your body....that includes what you put into it.

Erin and Mike hard at work getting in all the corners!

[11/04/20]   Looking to upgrade or change up your strength routine? 💪🏼Starting incorporating some kettlebell movements. Alissa Kluever demonstrates and describes the benefit of each movement below!👇🏼

Windmills- Windmills are a great exercise to improve your shoulder stability. Make sure to keep your back knee locked and your front knee bent. Keep your gaze on your kettlebell.

Cleans- Cleans are a great exercise for total body. Focus on this exercise being powered by your glutes. The kettlebell should gently land on your arm. Start your catch as soon as the kettlebell leaves the ground to avoid a clunky/painful ending.

Screw Press- Screw press is another great exercise to improve shoulder strength along with your core strength. Keep your opposite hand wrapped around the knee that is up. As you press, twist in your spine toward your working arm. Be sure to keep your bicep next to your ear as you press.

Swings- Kettlebell swings are an explosive movement that works your posterior chain. This exercise is powered by your glutes and hamstrings, not your arms. Keep a soft bend to your arms and snap in your hips. You want the kettlebell stay above your knees while you swing. Make sure you are performing a hinge in your hips instead of squatting. A swing should only be performed if you feel confident in your deadlift form.
