Squat cable row
This efficient exercise allows you to work muscles in both your upper and lower body at the same time. The squats will help build strength and power in your legs, and the rows will do the same for the back muscles.
Performing the Exercise:
Stand between the two cable columns, and adjust the cables until they are at roughly waist height. Stand two to three feet from the cable columns with your feet about shoulder width apart, with one handle in each hand. Your arms should be fully extended, and there should be some tension on the cable, with the weights off the stack.
Draw up your spine and make sure that your head, shoulders, hips and knees are in line. Tighten your abdominals to support your back and spine.
Keeping your arms fully extended in front of you, sit back into a squat, making sure that your knees don’t go beyond your toes. At the lowest point, your thighs should be parallel to the ground. Pause and then push up through the heels to return to a standing position. As you come fully upright, simultaneously pull your shoulder blades back and down and drive your elbows back and pull the rope handles in toward the chest. You’ll feel your shoulder blades draw closer together during the movement. Allow your arms to fully extend.
⭐️ NEW YOUTUBE VIDEO ⭐️ whilst I'm here missing my beautiful badass of a best friend like CRAZY, we've just popped up a new video on our YouTube channel, that's allllllll about 🍑🍑🍑🍑.
@kimhartwell goes through her favourite glute activation exercises to do before training/running to get that butt firing to make sure it does some work! Our glutes are often lazy, so the more we do to get the active the better. Video is in the link in my bio 👊🏼 the sound quality isn't great as we stupidly chose to film it in a really noisy gym but hey, we're still new at this. Let us know what you think if you do give it a watch!

Switched things up today. Normally Patrick and I do legs on Fridays but there was no way I was going to do that and then drive for 4 hours to the mountains🙅🏼. So we got in a quick leg session this morning!
Everyday that goes by I feel like I am focusing more on my internal transformations than my external. While I still feel like I'm progressing in the gym and in the shape of my body, I am seeing the world through clearer eyes.
My confidence level held me back for so long and I am trying to not let that happen anymore. In late 2016 I started coming out of my shell a little more by going to my first @bbgedmonton workout and meeting up with new friends for a few drinks. But 2017 is about really getting out there!
I've attended my first @burlesqueboom class and @yegcycle class. I've gone out for food after the last BBG meet up (Some of you may think what the big deal is with this. But I am extremely shy and this was a big step forward for me.) I stopped wearing make up 99% of the time after my acne began to flare up. This weekend I am attending the @sweatalberta retreat. And in July I am doing the @5kfoamfest
I am extremely proud of how far I've come and I'm excited to try so many new things.
So this #transformationtuesday is all about my internal transformation and how far I've come with the confidence I've gained❤
Need a quick and delicious way to incorporate more greens into your nutrition plan this week? Amber's Green Super Power Pesto recipe should hit the spot #linkinprofile . Serve up over fresh pasta or "zoodles", roasted veggies, or grilled meat. ⠀⠀
Leafy greens, such as kale, spinach, basil, and arugula, are packed with important vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are the antioxidant pigments in fruits and vegetables that give them their vibrant colors. And the green ones protect against cancer, decrease inflammation, and support brain, skin, hormone, heart and liver health. Pretty incredible, huh?⠀⠀
You can use any combo of greens you'd like in this recipe to customize for your taste and for what is in season near you. Oh, and all the other ingredients in this recipe have exceptional health value too so enjoy every bite!⠀⠀
