Much ♥️ to the women behind @welltodocanada for coming through and sharing their practice with me and wanting to know more about “This Yogi Lifts”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hope to see you guys more @oneacademylife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It felt like I was sitting in a rollercoaster this week. I've experienced a lot of emotions and I have learned a lot about life!
So I quit my job and signed for a new one. I am really excited and happy with the choice I have made. So let's go for this new adventure💪🏼
About to head out for my 16 mile long run... But a morning of boot camps and all afternoon trying to sort a wind-wrecked Playground already has me at just over 10 miles for the day... So this is essentially me telling you all for accountability that I WILL do the run... Rather than collapse on the sofa with a glass of wine and pretend I don’t have to do it... Thank you all in advance! 🤪
Watch this space 😰👍🏼
#GetToKnowMe - Many people call me self involved because I take great pride in every single ounce of definition, any sort of vascularity or striation I have. I am proud of my physique.
Sure, it's a little bit about my ego. Maybe I can be a little self involved.
But, I will tell any & everyone that there is no shame in loving the way you look, being confident in your body.
But, it doesn't happen overnight. Right? It never happens without a little hiccup here and there.
It certainly wasn't easy for me.
There is a story behind every ounce of muscle I have on my small body.
The story is what makes me proud.
I was a string bean growing up. No one who looked at me and thought, "man, she looks like an athlete"
I saw other women who had strong muscular physiques, carried themselves well, with pride & wanted nothing more than to possess that kind of energy.
I wasn't confident, but I could see it in others and admired it.
So, I decided to try.
I got beat up along the way. Bumps, bruises and scratches. So many injuries.
I had lots of people tell me I couldn't do it.
I had problems, life stuff that set me back.
I fought like HELL for every ounce of muscle I have. Every bit of knowledge.
Fuck, its been a JOURNEY.
And, I'm not "there" yet, right? There is always room to grow and improve.
BUT, it's because of this journey - getting roughed up along the way - that I can now appreciate every bump, bruise & scratch.
That bruise on my collarbone is a reminder that I tried - and even if I failed, I'm able to look back at that younger version of myself - the girl who saw something and tried over and over and over again... failed... kept coming back, learned & eventually won - and feel confident.
It's because of these moments that I want to help you with your journey.
What I mean by this is not just celebrate the wins & successes... but to help you learn to roll & run with the bumps along the way, with the losses. To help you take a step back, appreciate the journey and practice this kind of self care. It's not easy. Trust me, I know. But that's life in a way, right?
You learn and grow SO much on these moments. That's why "losing" is often the best thing that can happen.
LATERAL ANKLE SPRAIN BALANCE TRAINING! The ability to regain dynamic control and stability In the foot/ankle complex can’t be overlooked, as it has such a profound impact on the leg when it comes to sport. Yes normal strengthening exercises around the foot and ankle are good to make sure you strengthen throughout full range of motion, but the ligaments that are affected are meant to resist motion and provide support, so we need to put emphasis on this. Below we got over single leg balance exercises in this video and give our rationale for utilizing them in our training. We like to use the @perform_better med balls as the bigger circumference of the balls creates a little more stability requirement when throwing and catching.
Single Leg Rotational Med Ball Throws
•Resisting rotational forces in the ankle is huge when you are returning to a sport. This is a good way to work on control throughout the movement and set the tone for progressions from here.
•Attempt to go both directions for 10-15 repetitions
Single Leg Rotational Slams
•This is a nice progression as now you have to resist Rotational and compressive forces when slamming the ball towards the side of the affected ankle. •Start with one direction, then as the athlete gets the hang of it, alternate sides to create more of a challenge. •Try to have athlete not put other foot down!
SL Anti-Rotational med ball toss •This exercise is another progression to now work on resisting Rotational forces and maintain a good foot/ankle position throughout •Change the tempo of the throws to create more stability challenges!
Light pump day last night for legs. Did leg curls before these Banded leg press, which help get blood and movement into my knee without causing any pain or discomfort and allow me to build my legs while I ease back into squatting. Did sets of 20 and just kept adding weight till this last set where I like to always amrap my last set, managed 22 (1st 3 plates are 100lbs for those counting lol). Could’ve squeezed out more but I’ve been feeling some tightness in my right hamstring so I stopped there. Moved on to split Squats and then some shoulders and back.
