405X5 90 Degrees vs Under 90 Degrees! Not too bad considering 3-5 months ago I could only do 315 twice after being out of the game for 8 months! First form I was taught from my physical therapist after I tore my hamstring this is the safest form squat you could possibly do. Keeping an arch in you back the ENTIRE time and that booty poked out keeping strain off that lower back. Then there’s the powerlifting/athletic squat. If you’ve got a healthy back and are trying to be in any type of sport you definitely want to do this for strength & mobility but, be CAREFULL, your back will slouch down at the end no matter what you do. This is not the optimal way for your back to be. If you go too low you can seriously hurt your back and knees.

Competing for the USA jr's in the Javelin in China back in 2007. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 (Brought home a bronze medal!) . Found this gem while cleaning out our spare room today and had to take a moment to reminisce... . I was so fortunate to be able to compete overseas and I still have my USA uniform too! . When I first started sports in 7th grade I was terrible at everything. Bottom of JV for all teams that required anything more athletic than jogging. I hated that feeling. I made sure that I was always the first one to practice and the last to leave every single day. . It took years, but that dedication finally started to pay off. I was winning events at meets and could truthfully call myself 'athletic.' . You can always improve yourself if you're willing to put in the time and effort!!! . #workinprogress#merica

Strawberries for a snack! Mom tip : Kids will always eat what’s in front of them. If they grow up eating all fruits & vegetables they will Grow up eating what they know. Picky eaters are made in my opinion. I grew up eating beats, kiwi , guava , whole avocados on my own. Never soda, pizza, or fast food places, and we never had processed snacks at home. Ever! #momlife#momtip#healthstartsathome
