Happy Birthday to you, dear @bethanycmeyers! When I was younger I would fan girl on some of my "sheroes". I never fully understood why until the last few years when I came into my own destiny. And, yes, I fan girl over you 🤷🏽♀️😍 You have not only inspired me to fully embrace my body, but every aspect of my humanity - my sexuality, body image, entrepreneurial mindset, soul and personhood. Your @thebe.comeproject has taught me so much - beginning with the fact that you pursued that as a passion and it's grown wings and a beautiful life of its own. You teach, by example, the full reality of what it means to be who we were meant to be. You've defied the odds and help others do the same. You are appreciated and I have the greatest respect and love for you! Wishing you only the very best in love and life today and always! 💜Love, JoJo. #inspiring#inspirational#boss#surroundyourselfwithpositivepeople#instainspo#teachbyexample#fitness#wholebody#loveislove#freedom#love#empowering#empowered
To be a true leader, rather than a boss, you have to believe in the awesomeness of human potential, and be excited with the idea of seeing your people being elevated into their own, amazing, empowered professional they can be! Go love your people ;)
beautiful minds inspire others! Being connected to your true Self, being authentic , driven by love. Do you have such people in your life? Aren't they amazing to be around? If you don't have such beautiful souls around you, it might be time to re -evaluate some of your choices
The landmine press. If the bulk of your pressing movements consist of keeping your scapulae pressed firmly against a bench, floor, or a fixed object- you may want to consider adding in strengthening movements that utilize the shoulder blade’s full range of motion. This is where the land mine press can come in handy. Here are the steps for the land mine press. . . ✅- You will start with your feet in a split stance position with leg on the side that you are pressing at the rear. From this position, you will want to maintain a nice compressed core position while avoiding any excessive rib flare or low back arching. . . Avoid letting your hand placement come too close to midline (near chest), but rather keep hand and barbell placed right over top of shoulder. Next, think of pressing dumbbell straight up and away really reinforcing full upward rotation of the shoulder blade. @kolbygru_hot is doing a nice job of getting full scapular upward and downward rotation and is thinking of pressing his hand “out” at the top of the rep to really engage his serratus anterior. You will almost think of rounding that shoulder blade out at the top of the rep. Also, he does a nice job of maintaining a good trunk position throughout the movement with a slight angle forward. . . 🐥 - If your gym doesn’t have a landmine attachment, you could wedge the end of the barbell in the corner of the wall - just if you don’t mind scrapping up your barbell or paint off the wall ;) Let me know if you have any questions in the comments. Thanks again to @kolbygru_hot for the great form and demonstration . .
The Zottman curl. This exercise can be a great variation to the traditional dumbbell curl by utilizing both pronation and supination of the forearms during the exercise. Here are the dos ✅ for the Zottman curl. . . ✅ - The starting set up is the same for the traditional supinated bicep curl. You will start with the dumbbells by your side with the forearms in a supinated position (palms up). Then, you will curl the dumbbells up to the top position. Once at the top of the curl/rep, you will pronate your elbows/hands (turn the palms down), then slowly bring weight back down to your side. Once hands and dumbbells are at your side - supinate (palms facing up) your forearms to return to the starting position. Repeat for desired numbers of reps and sets based on your goals! . . 🐥 - The use of the rotational movements of pronation and supination will hit different areas of the elbow, forearm, and wrist very effectively. If you focus on the slow eccentric lowering of this lift - the extensors of your forearms will get the added benefit of isometrically holding the weight on the way down. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments! . .
