FRONT SQUATS FOR DEPTH!!! 😅 I’m still working on increasing my range of motion, symmetry of movement & controlling both phases of movement. Also these prioritize the quads & since I’m hamstring dominant focusing on my weaknesses is needed for improvement, overall joint health & muscle symmetry.
4 reasons to front squat:
1.Front squats are easier on your back & knees. With significantly less compressive forces & extensor movement makes them great for long term joint health 2.Enforces good back positioning technique. You can easily lean to far forward with a back squat but not with front squats or it’s game over 3.Provides Olympic lift transference. The bar positioning & body posture offer the most direct transference to Olympic lifting of ANY squatting variations 4.Keeps flexibility in check. You must be flexible in all major joints to perform the movement with proper technique.
Not bad for my first time bouldering. Looks like all those hours I put in climbing trees when I was a kid are finally paying off😆😅
Talk about full range of motion. I’ll sometimes use the smith machine to help keep my upper body in the right alignment allowing me to really focus on my legs & safely work them in the largest range of motion possible. Different variations of the squat movement performed controlled w the greatest ROM will help to keep your body mobile, flexible, balanced all while injury proofing yourself. The key to this is to move slow, aprox 3 sec count in both directions. Lower the weight as far as possible without allowing your pelvis to tilt up. You should stop just shy of it. If yo do it correctly over time you will notice you ROM & strength increase. Win win!👏🏼😃🙌🏼
I love these for targeting my rear delts. Bending over helps me to keep more tension on them & prevents the the other parts of my shoulder from taking over.
I understand the want & need to identify, to want to belong or feel like you are part of something but if you break away all of the layers & get to the core of it, we are all the same. We were all made the same, out of flesh & blood. We all bleed, we all feel and have feelings that can be hurt. We all have a heart that is capable of giving & receiving infinite love. Why discriminate against someone based on the color of their skin or the features of their face or by their chosen beliefs if they are not hurting someone else? We need to stop the hate and celebrate and enjoy all the variety of beauty that’s all around us. Love cures all if you just allow it to. It really is just that simple...❤️💯
Looking good is a side effect of getting healthy. We are all biologically engineered to be attracted to healthy. If you worry less about how you look & more so on your physical, mental & emotionally health & well being the rest will follow.

Sometimes you just have to mix it up! Cardio It’s not something that I like doing but if I’m training more like an athlete then that’s a different story. I find it entertaining, challenging and it just adds to an overall better level of fitness. Not to mention improving what you’re already working on🤔😎
I love this quote!❤️❤️❤️
Battle Ropes are an amazing and extremely effective tool for improving you cardio capacity, muscle conditioning, as well as being functional. A few minutes of this had me huffing and puffing😅
No plan, don't care, today is all about going with the flow...😎
ThAnk god for Friday's!!!🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Bent legged dead lifts. The bending of the knees allows for greater emphasis on the glutes rather than the hamstrings. Also these are easier to perform successfully if you're lacking flexibility. Super important, keep your back straight, your weight in your heels and keep your shoulder blades pulled back! You should only be hinging/bending at the hips and only very slightly at the knees. This is what supports and protects your back.
What can I say... 🤷🏼‍♀️
When in doubt BOUNCE!!! Wow it feels so good to feel like a kid again!😃
