Life isn't all about rainbows... Or is it? .... I guess that comes down to your beliefs and desires. What is it that you really want out of life? .. Most JUST want that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow they want the end result BUT... without the work (hard) and effort to achieve it. .. Have you ever had a 🔥 produce the heat without the fuel? NO, that fuel is the ENERGY that gives the heat... the end result. .. That is why campfires are fantastic - you've got to put in the work first (find the kindling, then cut the larger pieces and add them at just the right time and then tend to the initial spark and then stoke it to keep it going. .. See if you want that gold at the end of the rainbow - know that you have your WORK cut out for you. .. The process of starting the fire should be looked at as enjoyable because you know you will get the heat. .. Your life and the work you put into it (the process and journey) should be looked at as enjoyable because the end result will be worth it. .. Now go do the work 🔥
Whether it’s movement patterns, stress management or force management. Teach athletes how to move, function and absorb outside of their sport. They will “human” much longer than they “athlete”. . Thanks for the conversation and having me on brotha, @cvasps. Episode 147. Go check it out. #explorethecorners
@ntl.cg putting in some major lower body work today! Greatness comes from preparation! Conditioning, Weight lifting, and Skills training are crucial in the off season/ pre season phase of any sport! All my athletes are well rounded in each area. Get with me ASAP! #staytrue#legday#ballislife#striveforgreatness#cscs
So my knee has been so much better! Here’s a little pmh on the knee . 2003 barrel racing accident where my horse decided to plow throw a fence while racing, my leg got caught in the nice wooden fence as we hit the ground . 2005 1 roller blading accident landed me In the hospital, same left knee . 2008 to much running, weak vmo ITB syndrome . 2010 another rollerblading accident, another hospital trip . 2012 at UF doing hill sprints with a parachute, hamstring injury, opposite ankle . 2014 car accident . 2017 pop goes the weasel while clean and jerk, had no actual pain(thank you @sbdapparel knee sleeves) so I thought it would be a good idea to follow with reps of 230 back squat, meanwhile training for my triathlon . 2017 finished triathlon with knee wrapped and placed first in age group, telling myself this running business is for the birds 😂 jk . Haven’t been able to run without ticking off my knee, so I quit trying, squat aggregated it, steps, you name it . I wasn’t doing high impact cardio anyway, but the discomfort was still there . Now, I’m still not running, but I’m squatting and lunging without pain post workout . I have also been treating myself more frequently with acupuncture and supplementing with @corenutritionals flex joint support . I haven’t changed anything else . This combo for me has been key! Unlike other joint supps this actually has ingredients we learn about in botanical medicine.. every ingredient is listed, no random blends of garage . I normally wouldn’t waste my time on the msm glucosamine vitamins found on any shelf, because I never had luck in the past . Flex has so many other key indregients like boswellia, bromelain, turmeric . So now I’m even more exciting that backpacking season is in the future! . Because that is more important to me than running 🙌🏼🙌🏼 . Use my code “RACHAEL” @corenutritionals checkout to save money . Science . No bs fillers . I’m so grateful 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 🎒 ⛰

T spine bench mobility drill for lats and triceps. 🔹If you struggle getting your arms overhead because your lats and triceps are hyperactive and toned up, this is for you. 🔹Grab a dowel, Stick, whatever you can find that is stiff and won’t bend-if you need a creative idea-use the lat pulldown bar. 🔹Grab the bar about shoulder width apart, palms up. Kneel down and place your elbows on a bench. Take a full exhale to tuck your ribs down and in. 🔹Push your chest to floor until you feel a stretch. While maintaining your rib position, inhale and drive your elbows into the bench. Exhale, relax and push chest closer to the floor. Do this for 5-10 breaths before overhead work to tone down your lats and tri’s. If you feel this more in triceps, you can also mess around with bending your elbows more as you drop your chest to the floor.
