Pilates warm-up series ✨ This will be part 1 of 2 for a request I had about warm-ups. My video was too long as usual so I sped up the first half here to fit one minute. I'm not sure if I've ever done the same exact warm-up twice, so this set includes what I'd consider typical principles I follow:
1⃣ Working different planes of motion, flexion/extension then rotation
2️⃣ Activation of deep core (pelvic floor, TA, multifidus) followed by other core support muscle groups (rectus abdominus, obliques)
3️⃣ Breathe alignment and diaphragm engagement
4️⃣ Practicing spinal positions: neutral, imprinted, c-spine
I'd also be giving instructions about the details of each movement 😉 Let me know what you think!

Die Fitness-Industrie macht das ganze Thema immer komplizierter. Falsche Informationen und leere Versprechungen wie “In 4 Wochen zu deinem Sixpack” haben nur den Zweck Geld einzuschäffeln.
❗️Jeder Körper ist letztendlich individuell und jeder muss seine eigenen Erfahrungen sammeln. ❗️
Doch egal ob es um Muskelaufbau oder Fettabbau geht, es ist alles auf die Basics zurückführbar. Und sobald man die Basics kennt, wird einem viel Geld und Zeit erspart.💯
Warum starte ich eigentlich einen Fitness-Blog? Es gibt doch genug?!
Erklärung an Hand eines Beispiels: „Übungsausführung“
Schaut man sich im Internet um, sieht man unzählige Instagram-Accounts oder Youtube-Kanäle, die sehr gutes Wissen diesbezüglich bereitstellen. Doch der Blick in die Fitness-Studios quält mich dennoch viel zu oft und ich frage mich: “Wie kann das in unserem heutigen Zeitalter noch sein, dass der Latzug in Richtung der Oberschenkel geht?” 😩
So kam ich zum Entschluss, dass es einfach nie genug informative Quellen geben wird und ich mein angesammeltes Wissen auch mit dir teilen will.
Allerdings möchte ich dir so gut es geht nur die grundlegendsten und nötigsten Informationen auf dieser Webseite
vermitteln. Vor allem für Fitness-Anfänger💪
Ohne unnötige, teure Supplements und Fitnessprogrammen, werde ich dich auf fitness-az.de mit Info’s füttern, damit du deine Ziele erreichen wirst❗️🔥

Wall Balls!!😮😣I don't usually share videos from my Crossfit workouts because honestly I still have lots of body issues and don't usually record but I'm working on getting past them so I can record more to have for Comparison along the way. I still have a good amount of weight to loose, but I'm not going to let that stop that from going and working hard. Fitness is for everyone, even the obese. So what if I can't do what others can do, I'm there to improve myself, not compete. If you are a larger person trying to change your life, just know, you can do it. Show up, push yourself, and watch yourself grow. #crossfitbeginner#weightlosstransformation#gettingfitjourney#weightlossjourney#obesetobeast#fitmom#fitnessbeginner#fitfam#fattofit#weightloss
Last night it wasn't easy for me to fall asleep. I had to many thoughts about goals I want to achieve and things I'd like to change about myself. But one step after another.
Nevertheless I kicked myself out of bed at 6.30 am and started with push ups, crunches and a few exercises to loose a blockade in my shoulder region.
Now at 2pm I already reached 70 push ups, but I couldn't achieve more than 15 at once today.
I hope I'll keep the energy and that it also spreads on my motivation to learn for my finals.
Sources Of Protein You Can Incorporate Into Your Diet✅
🥩 Protein is good for keeping & building muscle. If you are an active and healthy adult, it is recommended that you get .5g-1g of protein per pound of body weight. .
🍣 I would recommend 4-8 oz of protein per meal depending on body size / goals. Protein will help keep you full for longer and is a good source of calories. .
🍖My favorite sources of protein are: lean beef, chicken, fish, and if you are vegan or don’t eat meat; a protein supplement works well too. I incorporate any of these protein sources with a clean carb and healthy fat in each of my meals. .
💥 If you need a list of healthy recipes that incorporate these protein sources, check out my “Guide To Meal Prep” ebook on my website🐺.
Today i decided to change my life.
Tomorrow is the first day of my new life, the day one.
My goal is to improve my overall fitness and adopt a healthier lifestyle.
To begin with I'll start with the 100 push ups a day challenge and after my finals (January) I'll start going to the gym.
I created this account to keep on track with my development and when its online its harder for me to cheat myself.
For the beginning I'd like to stay anonymous.
Try this regression of a simple yoga flow to start your day and wake up your back!
The back is part of your core, and the core is where all movement stems from. In fact your abs exist just to protect and stabilize your spine. So the back is really important. This is a feel-good stretch, so do whatever you need to do with it to make it your own.
Dieting VS Lifestyle Changes❗️
There is a difference between a “diet” and making the “lifestyle changes” and the results that come with both of them. .
❌Dieting: there are a lot of detox teas and lose 5lbs in a week schemes in the fitness world. First off, these are all exaggerated for marketing purposes. The best way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you eat. That easy. Dieting typically involves a short lived period of rapid weight loss without lasting effects. We all have friends that diet for a few weeks and fall off the wagon worse than they were before. Diets fail because they typically always involve short cuts. .
✅ Making a Lifestyle Change: on the other hand, making a lifestyle change has lasting effects and has structure. A lifestyle change is all about balance. You know what is good for you and what is not. If you know you are going to go out for drinks and dinner, you might have a lighter lunch. Structure provides a strong foundation for you to work with. A strong foundation = guaranteed results. Making a lifestyle change gives you freedom to make choices about your habits. Extreme dieters have trouble balancing their eating efforts with their social life. A lifestyle change limits this, it creates a fail proof plan to achieve your results. .
➡️ Conclusion: diets work for a little while but do not change that habits of the person in the long run. Making a lifestyle change will change how that person goes about their daily habits and will provide a secure plan to reach their goals. .

Getting ready for the coming weeks. So excited about the new program coming out in January. More about that later, but since I like feeling accomplished I wrote out my workout schedule so I can mark each day off. It feels so good!!😊
