| CORE Training | 💦🔥👌🏼
These are a few on my favorite core exercises that aren't crunches. Especially after having a baby it's important to work on the whole core in all planes of motion.
Using the Swiss ball or even a BOSU ball are great for adding a challenge and test your stability.
Stability is an important to incorporate into your training as well. During these exercises your core should be engaged at all times Focus on the exhale to get the core to fully contract. It makes Such a difference!! .
Anyways I hope you all are having a great week so far! Stay focused on your goals, but have fun doing so!! And if you have any questions please ask away! 😉
It's been a long 24hrs. Thanks for the support and well wishes guys. Sorry if I let you down, I'm equally as devastated, but I have to take care of me first.
I'll be back in there soon enough even more determined!

You've been lied to. Squats and deadlifts aren't the best exercises for building bigger, stronger glutes. While they are amazing compound exercises most people can contract their glutes harder during body weight glute activation exercises than during their max in squats and deads. The movements that target glutes the best will activate them with little to no weight. Follow a gradual progression for best results. The glutes are sleeping giants that are often underused, but have tons of potential.Most people think they have strong glutes but they don't. They're the ones who believe squats, deadlifts, and lunges are the best glute exercises, and they've spent years getting very strong at - squatting, deadlifting, and lunging. These exercises can make the glutes sore but they don't strengthen the glutes much. They target the quads and erector spinae. Even box squatting, walking lunges, and sumo deadlifts don't activate much glute in comparison to the exercises below. If you study glute activation, you'll be blown away by the data. Most individual's glutes contract harder during body weight glute activation exercises than from one-rep max squats and deadlifts.So include more glute isolating exercises and if you train legs twice a week make sure you hit the glutes with some of the following:
BARBELL GLUTE BRIDGE HIP EXTENSION
SINGLE-LEG HIP THRUST
WEIGHTED BIRD DOG
BAND STANDING ABDUCTION
BAND SEATED ABDUCTION
BAND EXTERNAL ROTATION
BENT-LEG REVERSE HYPER
BENT-LEG BACK EXTENSION
There are many studies done on glute activation that are available online

--------------------------------------------------- So initially going into this summer, I was planning on doing this program here in Florida, working full time here, start prepping for a men's physique show and still try to get at least 6 hours of sleep at night. It's definitely possible to do all of that but for me right now it isn't the right time. I decided a while ago to prolong the competing side of my goals but definitely a landing on competing in the future! Sitting at 185-187 lbs right now and have been kinda annoyed here and there with the lack of time I have for the gym but it's all good, I'll be able to get right back into the swing of things back in Minnesota where I can make my own food and have more time! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read this caption, means a lot! God bless and I hope had a great day ❤️🙏🏽 #gains#letsgetit#coresthetix#gettingthere#getbettertoday
