The jeans fit. They buckled with no problem. No muffin top. & I was comfortable in jeans for ONCE. But I wasn’t. Why? Because I was comparing myself to others. Why do we as women do this? I’m in shape FOR ME. the clothes that I used to wear- unbuckled, fit with extra room. I’m so proud of myself and this feeling is indescribable. To put on an outfit that I FEEL GOOD IN. But still feel unworthy sucks. This is where I want to be transparent. No matter how much weight I have lost, I still feel like I’m not good enough. But YOU ARE. You are. & to be apart of something that makes you feel worthy is amazing. I truly enjoy working out. I enjoy making good decisions for me. For my body. Come enjoy the fun. 💕💕💕 —— DM me to join our craziness.
Today, I had the incredible honor of standing next to my best friend, and watch her marry the man of her dreams. It was the biggest honor of my life, and a day I will never forget. — Hayley and Zach, may the happiness you have tonight only be the start of a wonderful life ahead. I love you both - 5ever and always.
This is a conversation I’ve had recently with a couple coaches and clients. I thought it appropriate to share some evidence to support why we don't ascribe to any “one best way” to squat recommendation. It’s always best to take an individual approach and most importantly...assess! #repost @dr.nick.dpt with @get_repost ・・・ 💥PEOPLE SQUAT DIFFERENTLY💥 --- Looking an normal anatomic variance, how can we possibly think that every human will squat exactly the same❓ . 📊 I think it's good to know and understand some general guidelines when assessing the squat. Things I like to look at include weight distribution, hip hinge, bar path (if loaded squat), and general symmetry with the movement. However, the golden question is: is this variation normal (i.e anatomic), is it learned (motor control/strength/etc) can I improve it, and do I need to? That's a loaded question(s). One that I can't fully address in just an instagram post because as the saying goes "it depends." But it's a line of thinking that I would recommend we ask ourselves as movement professionals instead of dogmatically saying things like "knees can't go past toes/feet have to be shoulder width/butt wink will kill you" etc. I think we (and I for that matter) can do better. --- 🌐 That said, in the picture you'll see a few different things. (Shout out to the man Ryan @themovementfix for the inspiration) The femur (thigh bone) has an articulation point with the acetabulum (hip socket). The head of the femur can vary widely anatomically, both in size and in angulation (such as femoral anteversion and retroversion) If someone has excessive anteversion of the femur, what squat stance would they likely be most comfortable with? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The depth of the socket is also important, as is the direction the socket is facing. Observe the depth difference in the left vs right. Which one do you think is better for a narrow stance squat? The femoral neck
