💥Banded Plyo Pullup💥
.
If you have become good at regular pullups then here is a great way to add explosiveness to the exercise. .
The resistance from the band forces me to pull faster and with more force which in turn will activate fast-twitch muscle fibers and build strength and power in the muscles of the upper back ✊🏾.
.
Try these out 💯!

Harder than it seems 😱! .
Here’s a tough exercise that will increase balance and stabilization while improving ankle, knee, and hip control. Your grip strength will get a challenge as you pass the dumbbell from side to side as well as the core and obliques as they keep you upright and from falling over 👊🏾🥵.

🔥 Core strength and endurance •
💪🏾 Shoulder and spinal stability •
👀 Hand-eye coordination •

We are already on day ✌🏼✌🏼 of #fallintobalance and today is any forearmstand balance. This could be a dolphin pose, pinchamayurasana, scorpion or even hollowback like I did. The key is to not let your elbows get too wide! Elbows should be firmly rooted shoulder width distance apart. If your shoulders are tight, which mine often are, then bring your hands together. Ideally your hands are also shoulder width distance apart for maximum stability. Use a walk if this one is new to you. ⁣

If you were to ask me what blanket slide heaven looks like to me, I would say that this sequence is pretty much it! (Aren’t you glad you know that now? Because I’m sure this was a burning question you were about to ask me, right? 😀)
.
This sequence is not only fun & unique - it also helps to build strength & control, especially in our upper body & core!
.
Start standing on a blanket with a yoga mat right in front of your blanket. Hinge forward and place your hands on the mat.
.
Stay strong through your arms as you slide the blanket back and arrive in plank pose. Then climb down with control into forearm plank.
.
Find forearm side plank on one side and then climb UP into *regular* side plank on the other side. Switch sides in side plank and then climb DOWN to forearm side plank on the other side.
.
(It’s more intuitive when you actually do it versus reading it written out heh heh!)
.
Then return to forearm plank and slide your blanket forward toward your arms. Lift both elbows up off the floor, and then slide the blanket forward a bit more to find a standing forward fold (uttanasana).
.
Rise back up to tadasana and pause for a moment. Then repeat again because wasn’t that fun?
.
Let me know what you think about this little slice of blanket heaven if you try it out! 😇💙

Get ready to fall on your ass a thousand times over cos #BalanceThatAsana3 is back for another round! Today is Day 1 and we are kicking off with this funky shape which I have no idea what to call. Maybe some sort of side plank butterfly thing.

Tip 💡 Set your forearm slightly diagonal to give you a better supporting base. And get your dog to stand behind you to give you extra determination not to fall backwards 😂

🔹Fix Your Leg Raises - Target and Build the Lower Abs🔹
⠀
To build a solid set of abs you need to effectively target both the upper and lower sections of the Rectus Abdominus (6-pack). For this reason leg raise variations are extremely popular but many trainees look over a much needed step in these exercises, and that is actually using the lower abs.
⠀
To properly do a leg raise type movement
1️⃣ Initiate by rolling your hips forwards and up
2️⃣ Bring the knees as close to the chest as possible
3️⃣ Focus on crunching the lower and upper abs together rather than simply thinking about bringing your legs up
⠀
Keeping the lower back flat on the pad will limit the range of motion severely enough that the lower abs will not be engaged and the primary muscles worked will become the hip flexors, of course this is fine if that is all you are looking to target.
⠀
🔥 Save as a reminder for your next Ab workout
🔥 Like, comment and share with a friend who might be making this mistake. 👍

⁣It’s always fun to get back to #armbalance practice. It is such a great way to build #armstrength and #shoulderstrength and #corestrength and #balance - and they really take a lot of focus on how to find dichotomy engagements and activations. Inversions take a lot of strength but because they are usually stacked the strength and activation is not always the same. I love combining #hipopener work with arm balances. Watch my page for an upcoming hip challenge starting the 18th (flyer dropping tomorrow), and an arm balance challenge in December. -⁣

Shrink your waist and increase your metabolism👇🏼👇🏼⠀
⠀
Back has been one of my favorite muscle groups to train mostly because I just really enjoy it - it makes me feel strong and it’s not legs 😎😂⠀
⠀
There also are a lot of benefits to having a strong back. It is a larger muscle groups, so a back workout burns a lot of calories compared to smaller muscle groups like shoulders and arms. Having more muscle in general will also help your body burn more calories in a day meaning easier fat loss 💃🏼⠀
⠀
Some other benefits I have seen from having a strong back is my posture has improved drastically, and it has helped all my other lifts because of how much stronger my core has gotten. Growing your back also helps give the illusion of a smaller waist 😏⠀
⠀
These videos are two of my core back movements that I like to add into my workouts. They are all compound movements, so they burn a lot of calories and they take a lot of core strength to stabilize everything throughout the movements.⠀ .
What are some of your favorite exercises to do?? Are you more of an upper body or lower body kind of person?

Remembrance Day - a day when we get to remember the soldiers and veterans that sacrificed so much, some of them their life,  for us to live life the way we are living it today.  This is Corie Mapp - he is a British veteran who was doing a tour in Afghanistan when he got injured and after rehab - he is now one of the top Para-Bobsleigh athletes in the world. Taking third place during the World Championship last year. I thought the least I could do today was give him a shoutout and honour the work that he’s put in in protecting our rights/freedoms overseas and getting to be at the top of his sport today.
⠀⠀
To all the men and women who put their life on the line every day - thank you! ⠀⠀ P.S. And by World Series - I mean World Championships 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️ - you’ll see why I don’t talk so much in videos 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

We worked on some power transfers on Saturday with some chest passes, slam balls and lateral whips

They may seem like strictly upper body movements through arm use but to really generate power into the throws we cannot avoid using the entire kinetic chain to create a forceful transfer

The #torso press sit targets the core, back extensor, shoulders and chest areas. Inhale and push the pedal downwards, maintaining straight arms. Exhale and lift the upper body up while keeping the #powerhouse and legs fully engaged. Keep the pelvis stable and no tension on the neck area. Hard work but you'll definitely feel the work on your #abdominals!

For the first time in 3years (gym anniversary 4 Nov), I turned off my alarm and went back to sleep, waking up 6:00 instead of 5:15.  Everything was fast forward from then on.

40 min treadmill run
40 min chest
10 headstand crunches and stretching

Polar wins again with a burn calculation of  459; Fitbit 403.

For a chest day, this was definitely a good burn.  The bullet sweats felt great. Now my entire upper body is dead. Struggling to hold my coffee cup💀

Let’s be honest here, ⁣
⁣
We have all tried out a new exercise routine and quit it — whether you didn’t like it, it was too hard, you lost interest — whatever the reason is, needs to be reflected upon. ⁣
⁣
I have a client that LOVES to lift weights and really push her body, but she has limitations that we work around — she feels faint and will black out when doing movements that has the body moving up and down (like burpees, deadlifts, squats).⁣
⁣
Over her years of working out and pushing herself to her max, she has learned that her body can’t handle high intensity training.  She has had a lot of disappointment in her exercising regimes and after hiring different personal trainers and doing group workouts she had given up, thinking exercise wasn’t for her. ⁣
⁣
After struggling with some postpartum incontinence, she found herself in front of me, needing to strengthen her core, pelvic floor and body. ⁣
⁣
We experienced one of her dizzy spells early into our workout sessions, despite taking it slow.  BUT we reflected and I went home thinking about how I can help her love exercising again. ⁣
⁣
She came back to see me a couple days later and we tried the Powerlifting Breathing Technique, when she was doing squats.  She didn’t feel faint.  She didn’t feel dizzy. ⁣
⁣
As we continue to work together, we are learning more about her body and noticing a lot of what she is dealing with has to do with her breathing! ⁣
⁣
It was through reflection and learning what her body responds to or reacts to that we were able to get her back into a workout routine that makes her body feel good. ⁣

💥 Hip Flexor Strength Part 1💥
.
🔹 While there are numerous muscles that contract to flex the hip, two of the main ones include the iliopsoas and rectus femoris muscles. As we’ve included in previous posts, these muscles can become overactive and 🔒tight🔒, which can be relieved through stretches. Once the muscles are at an improved length, it is EXTREMELY important to begin strengthening! Hip flexor strength is essential for running🏃🏻‍♂️, competitive sports⚽️, rock climbing🧗🏼‍♀️ and CrossFit 🏋🏼‍♂️activities. .
.
🔹Weak hip flexors can cause pain and difficulty with many recreational activities. A solid strength program has the potential to prevent strains, which is common among young athletes. Over the next few weeks, we will be focusing on different muscle contraction progressions to OPTIMIZE hip flexor strength, while maintaining CORE STABILITY.
.
🔹In this video, we focus on strengthening from a neutral to end-range position with an isotonic contraction. This can seem simple, but may be tricky as it requires strong abdominal bracing to optimize contraction of hip flexors through prevention of spinal/pelvic movement. .

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you recently tried to turn a weakness into a strength?!?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If so what was it and how did it work out for you?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am so determined to improve my grip strength and core that I have been doing a lot of hanging leg raises.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I do these three ab workouts every lift.
I also use them to super set or tri set lifts.
I do that to help keep my heart rate up.
I also stay more focused if I have active rest.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I do 4 sets and am currently doing 8-10 reps but working on increasing the reps.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First video:
Hanging leg raises
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Second video:
One leg raise at a time
Wait until both legs are at the bottom to bring one leg up
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Third video:
Straight leg to curls
Curl your legs up to your chest pause then control your legs back down
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try them don’t try them but try them and watching your core get stronger and your grip!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
& Don’t forget to drink your water everyday!🙃

Full Kneeling Pallof Alphabet Press (ft. @uvmmhockey commit @mickey_burns)
.
.
➡️ Slight progression of a regular standing Pallof press that we would do. We take the base out by kneeling to further isolate the core, pelvis & glutes.
.
.
🕵️‍♂️Considerations:
.
🎯 Keep arms extended
.
🎯 Maintain good contraction of glutes
.
.
🥅Goal is to have glutes work w/ the anterior portion of the core to keep the pelvis/lumbar spine in position.

1 green pepper, deseeded and chopped into small chunks
140g pineapple , chopped into bite-sized chunks
3 tbsp Thai green curry paste
4 tsp light soy sauce, plus extra to serve
300g cooked basmati rice (brown, white or a mix - about 140g uncooked rice)
2 large eggs, beaten
140g frozen peas
225g can bamboo shoots
Bamboo shootsBamboo shoots bam-boo shoo-tz
As expected, these are the very young shoots of many types of… , drained
250g frozen prawns , cooked or raw
2-3 limes , 1 juiced, the rest cut into wedges to serve
handful coriander leaves (optional) • Method
Heat the oil in a wok or non-stick frying pan and fry the spring onion whites for 2 mins until softened. Stir in the pepper for 1 min, followed by the pineapple for 1 min more, then stir in the green curry paste and soy sauce.

Add the rice, stir-frying until piping hot, then push the rice to one side of the pan and scramble the eggs on the other side.

For those of you who have been to our office, you probably recognize Carl. We could get into how much Carl does to help keep us in line and the practice up and running, but that's not what you're here for.

Over the past several weeks, Carl has been receiving Emsculpt® treatments on his biceps and core, and in only a few short weeks, he already sees some exciting results.

Carl came in today and told us, "Yesterday I was carrying a car battery in one hand. I needed the other hand, to open the door to the auto parts store. Rather than put the lead battery down, I just held it, Crazy!" Even though it may not seem like a huge feat to some, being able to not only see but physically feel your body getting stronger is one of the most rewarding parts about the Emsculpt treatment®. Fun Fact: The coffee cub says Bob-Bob because that's what the grandkids have decided is his new name.

💥How to reduce an excessive low back arch💥 (this is the end of the series, but see below for a quick review)
.
This is also known as “excessive lumbar lordosis” or an “anterior pelvic tilt”
.
These are all just fancy words for when your low back arches too much and you stuck your butt out.
.
This exercise can help to reduce the excess arching in the back to take the stress off the joints of the lumbar spine (low back).
.
When we are in an excessive curve of the lumbar spine, we are jamming down the joints of the spine called the facets.
.
Facets are highly pain sensitive so this can be pretty painful. .
👉pain with standing and walking are often common complaints for those who have excessive lumbar lordosis (low back curve).
.
Reasons this may occur:
✅pregnancy
✅weak core
.
.
This can help to take stress off the lumbar joints.
.
We want a curve in the low back, but too much curve can increase low back pain
.
1️⃣this exercise helps to improve the upper thigh mobility. When the upper thigh (rectus femoris) is tight, it can pull the low back into more of an arch than normal.
.
Try it out! If you’re sore along the upper thigh, then this may be a good exercise for you to do!

⏭Pistol squat o sentadilla a una pierna. No solo requiere una gran fuerza en el tren inferior, sobre todo en el cuádriceps, sino también un buen equilibrio y esbilización del core y una gran movilidad articular en el caso del tobillo y de la cadera.

En la foto podemos observar una pistol squat asistida por bandas en suspensión o TRX, este es otro paso dentro de la progresión: en ambos casos vamos a contar con un apoyo importante, tanto en la subida como en la bajada. .

Posted @withrepost • @ultimatesandbag When it comes to better core training strategies, we have to first starry by understanding that core refers to the 35 muscles that must work synergistically to provide stability to our body. In other words, it’s more than just “abs”.
......
➡️
A powerful method that people overlook in building better #coretraining movements is lifts/chops. Derived from the #physicaltherapy system of PNF. These diagonal patterns work with the nervous system and natural design of the body to work on diagonal patterns.
......
➡️
These 4 #DVRT drills are great examples of how we can use lift/chops in different ways where better #corestrength relates to stronger and better #hipmobility and even stronger upper body. Using the Ultimate #Sandbag allows us a unique grip and ability to create tension WITH load (many people using tension without load which is big mistake) to get faster and better results. .....
➡️
Try adding one or more of these awesome #coreexercises from @martinadame1 @peretzthetrainer @rdpaget to make your core training so much better!

These 4 #DVRT drills are great examples of how we can use lift/chops in different ways where better #corestrength relates to stronger and better #hipmobility and even stronger upper body. Using the Ultimate #Sandbag allows us a unique grip and ability to create tension WITH load (many people using tension without load which is big mistake) to get faster and better results. .....

Try adding one or more of these awesome #coreexercises from @martinadame1 @peretzthetrainer @rdpaget to make your core training so much better!

Core with a twist 🤯
↩ #twist
↪ #turn
⬅️⬅️ SWIPE LEFT ⬅️⬅️ SWIPE LEFT ⬅️⬅️
🔃 #push
🔄 #pull
🔁
I like to train my body along different orbits (semi-circular patterns) with rotational and cylindrical body motions ⚛
These once complex core movements are no longer hard to train in the gym when using the Core 36 & 44 Bar as you see in the video, as a cable machine attachment or you could use it with resistance bands

🏋️‍♀️FULLBODY FLOW 🏋️‍♀️ I love to put together exercises - creating a combo of fullbody movements engaging balance and strength 💞 • side lunge
• single leg / one arm shoulder press
• curtsy lunge - one arm lateral raise (Remember both sides)

AB WHEEL ROLLOUT TIP
•
Instead of hinging, try to maintain the plank position throughout the duration of your repetitions.
•
By maintaining alignment during this moving plank you’ll have to work harder longer. 👍🏼

Make sure you have the sound on! Making this video made me so happy. It’s been a while since the last time I did something like this; moving my body, thinking creatively, editing videos for fun, and boy have I’ve missed these things. 
It’s easy to put yourself on the back burner when you’re juggling multiple responsibilities like work, family, relationships, personal issues, house stuff, etc. Some days you wonder where did all the time go. You realize you didn’t accomplish all of the things that were on your to-do list so you just add those items on tomorrow’s to-do list. Some days feel like your overwhelmed and drowning and other days feel great. Why is that? Maybe it has to do with our own expectations. Expecting to be able to do everything at the fastest rate possible will lead to stress and disappointment. It’s okay to ask for help, to take a rain check, to not take on additional tasks, to spend time with yourself. One of the most important things you can do is take time for yourself. 
Allow yourself to reflect on where you’ve been, where you want to go, and how to get there. You need do the things that bring joy to your life and take care of yourself first before you attempt to care for others. So go figure out what makes you happy and do those things while you’re still able to because one day you won’t be able to do them and you’ll regret it

Reflection: Diastasis Recti 
Nope, not a new strain of tropical bacteria causing the flu! Yet, just as physically and emotionally as painful. I had two clients ask me today to check them for abdominal separation, both mamas and struggling to accept their new bodies. Brought me back to my own personal experience with postpartum. 
Pilates can be a great path to help you engage the pelvic floor and regain deep core strength, but remember to be patient and kind to your body.  #dopilatesdolife
