#throwback to the days where I could breathe out of my nose and could drive my car without it sounding like I have a dead animal stuck under my bumper 😅 I don't have much to post about because every second I'm not busy, I'm looking for a new car, sleeping, or working. I haven't even really been working out because I feel like death. But, here's to a positive attitude and trying (and failing 🤧) to laugh the whole thing off. You're never as grateful for good health as you are when you don't have it. I miss the days I could breathe and walk without getting winded. #allergyseason Which is one of the reasons I work so hard in the gym. I want to continue to be able to do the things I can now without modification for as long as possible. I also hate being sick and more exercise = less Sicky pants. So, if that's your only motivation to exercise, it's enough, believe me.
If I could only do one stretch for the rest of my life I’d pick this one. We get into quads, glutes, back, lats, obliques....most of the things that get stuck and make us feel like 💩. . . If you try it out and leave a comment & let me know how your feel after! 🙌🏽
When coaching you need to look at different angles 👀 This allows you to get the whole picture 🌎 I film from the side a lot. My squat looks better from the side 💁🏼♀️ bad of me yes. As soon as I film from behind, you can now see my imbalances I’ve been trying to overcome from yearssss of rowing 🚣🏼♀️ hey @5co11y I used to row 🌝 They got a lot better with lots of volume and unilateral work over the years. However, with inconsistency with certain movements and exercises due to injuries, some of these imbalances have started to reappear 🌚 💩 Like here, my hip shift and knee valgus (stronger on the right side too) are visible under a load that’s not actually that heavy for me. Breakdown in technique will happen with fatigue and high load. When you’re testing your limits, this is fine to some extent if it’s not dangerous. But if these appear in sub maximal loads, it’s maybe something to consider looking at out with the exercise 🤓 Yes, coaching cues are good to focus on, but I definitely need to add in some accessory lifts to sort this out too 🤗 single leg work will be added in now. Glute work is always in there so hopefully unilateral exercises will make a change 😌 . . . . . . . #skwaats#squats#powerlifting#weightlifting#boxsquats#coach#coaching#strongwomen#strong#strengthtraining#strengthandconditioning#strengthcoach#resistancetraining#gymmotivation#fitnessmotivation#gymlife#happy#happyplace#fun#exercisemotivation#standrews
Based on the article by Michael Perry Senior SFG\SFL. He recommends the following before try the phases he has detailed for practicing the #strongfirst Snatch test... 8 to 10 minutes to complete 100 snatches. I got it with 2 seconds left. The hardest thing I've done with kettlebells. Below is the article: https://www.strongfirst.com/solid-game-plan-acing-snatch-test/
