Happy Thursday! I got my 2nd leg day done and my face seems to say it all 😂. I did a little bit of quads, glutes, and calves! Since I can't use the squat rack, I love doing these cable squats instead! I also did sumo squats using this cable (check out my Snapchat @ scooz21). I'm looking into getting a free motion which would allow for way more exercises but for now I do with what I have 😀. #legsarewobbly#thirstythursday#fitnessjourney
Let me be real with y'all for a minute. I love working out. I look forward to it. It's a stress reliever. It's either that or a bottle of wine every night and only one of those gets me to my goal if you know what I'm sayin.
So real talk, I've been trying to make myself get up at 5:30 and workout before even leaving to go to work. I've done that the past two days. But I absolutely hated it. I hated waking up. I was grumpy and mean. I hated my workouts.
I know I'll get used to it and I'll be back to enjoying them in no time but for right now, shit's hard yo. These journeys aren't always rainbows, sunshine, unicorns, and kittens 🌈☀️🦄🐈 But I tell you what, I would trade the hard days for anything. Living this lifestyle is so much better than how I was living before that I'll take the hard days in a heartbeat.
📝Here are 8 wimpy rehabby ways to improve your shoulder mobility.
☠️Tomorrow I will be posting more exciting training/rehab methods to improve shoulder mobility. First we release and mobilize, then we load. The goal for tomorrow will be improving handstands and overhead motion. But for now, try these! They really can help.
🙋🏼The cross body stretch is one I employ quite a bit for improving shoulder internal rotation and overhead motion. It helps to mobilize the posterior capsule and has been shown to be superior to the sleeper stretch.
⚾️This is what arm care mobility looks like. Overhead athletes, you should be doing stuff like this.
