••SWIPPEEE•• I missed the timeline for #transformationtuesday but there’s not only one day of the week to show your progress- so here I am a girl on the left who was 2 months postpartum to a soon to be mommy of a two year old?!? I’m so proud of the body I’ve built, the time I’ve put in and failures I’ve turned into success💪🏽 #InspireAndAspire
Usually I’m not one to train in shorts because they are just annoying but when you find some that don’t ride up AND don’t show your butt you know you’ve found a winner!! 👍🏼 Girls get on them @obsessed.gymwear!
Guess who just made her first business #ladyboss purchase?? Merry Christmas to me! This baby is gunna simplify my life for scheduling, managing social media and websites, and eventually build my #onlinetraining empire. The best part is that I can afford this from doing something that I hardly consider a job, helping people live healthier lives and learn to love exercise and their bodies. This career has done so much for me, truly making me a better person, so in the season of giving I say #treatyourself 😉👏🏼 #macbookair#taxwriteoff

- 🔴ARM ANGLE IN THE BENCH PRESS🔴
📸 by @pheasyque
I felt inspired, so I drew more stuff on the bench press. -
Today we talk about the arm angle and why it is important to have your arms directed correctly in order to maximize your strength in this exercise. -
✅In the left picture, arms are at a 75 degree-ish. The reason behind it is that by having your arms closer to your torso you're able to stick your chest out and create a strong upper back shelf which brings your shoulders locked back by arching your back a little, resulting in an aligned aligned upper back-shoulder-chest chain.
Not too close though! Having your arms too much close to your torso will decrease the stress on the chest and basically make it a tricep exercise, so be aware of that. ✅
❌On the right, the arm angle is greater: up to 90 degrees. Having your arms this wide makes it impossible to lock your shoulderblades back together and stick your chest out, which neglects you from creating a strong "pillow" of muscles against the pad, needed for you to press up.
Further more, having your arms far off your torso in a 90 degree angle, dis-aligns your shoulders from your chest, which end up taking most of the stress. Your chest now doesn't get engaged as much as it should, and your shoulders are facing too much of a heavy weight for them to push up. -
Results? No chest development and shoulder impingement. You get all kinds of nerve pinching this way
Strong women. May we be them and may we know them.
I had a discussion with my coach today around the “getting big” topic. It’s always something I’m thinking about. Do I want to grow or do will I be considered “too big”
Who says just because were women we should be small and dainty? We live in a society where people shame strong women. Although it’s improving it still exists.
However, I can tell you one thing I would like somebody to come shame me when I wrap up my knees, put on a belt and push up weights more than I weigh.
Because in that moment I feel invincible, I feel like a boss. People will always have an opinion of you especially in the fitness industry, but the only persons opinion that matters is the persons who’s looking back at you in the mirror.
Do you boo.
I’m not strong for a girl. I’m just strong. 💪🏽
