❌Tight glutes??❌ Me too!! My favourite glute stretch is the 'The pigeon' ⬆️🙄 The goal is to extend your arms all the way forward with your front leg at a right angle and both hips down. Clearly my glutes are tight because this stretch kills me without doing any of those things 😂 'The Pigeon' can be progressive starting with your back up and then slowly lowering down to your elbows as your glutes loosen up. You'll notice a big release if you can hold the stretch for a couple of minutes so I challenge you to hold for at least 2 minutes on each side😬 Who's up for the challenge? 🙋🏼
My workout was so needed today but it was broken up due to a very crabby crying tantruming (is that a word?) almost 3 yo.
It's ok, she can cry it out while I find my zen.
It ain't always perfect but I sure as heck ALWAYS show up.
That counts right?!
“If you don’t pay appropriate attention to what has your attention, it will take more of your attention than it deserves." ~~~~David Allen ✨I have a huge to do list right now, but I'm trying to stay organized and on track. I find that making very pretty and thoroughly organized to do lists helps me get things done, because it's easier to read, things stand out better, and I make myself aware of things that need to get done asap and things that are last priority.
This looks like fun poses! I am having so much fun doing these challenges; discovering new poses, meeting so many cool people and being completely inspired in ways I never imagine!

30 minutes of stretching & yoga is important for your body & muscles to recover & to make transformations faster🔑 Short Clip of Some Stretches an trying to master hand stand pushups 💪 15-25 minute stretch to relax #yogaeverydamnday#yoga#stretch#fitness#fit
For many years in my training journey I worried about how my muscles looked rather than how they performed. Back in my bro days where the most important things in my "fitness" was how big my biceps and chest were so many other aspects of fitness were neglected.
One aspect which I can't just solely blame on my improper methods of training, but also my lifestyle is mobility.
Ever since I started Crossfit, Crossfit has really made clear my apparent lacking in this department which has made me focus a lot of time and effort into becoming a supple leopard. I've made a lot of gains in my overhead mobility, but getting a few extra millimetres require extra dedication.
The photo on the left is Pre-mobility. Photo on the right is after 10 minutes of mobility which includes rolling muscles out with the lacrosse ball, stretching and mindful movements in the range desired. The progress isn't much, however, it'll only get better and better. :
⛵️"If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to meet it!" ⚓️✨ I like to set an intention for the week every Sunday night and dedicate 7 days to working on that part of myself. This week, I want to work on patience-- with others and myself. 📿What's yours? 🤗

Running Tight Vs. Running Relaxed [technique @vlfit]
Are you tensing up too much when you run? 🤔 This is the MOST COMMON PROBLEM that people have when they're trying to run faster!🏃🏻
Trying too hard or muscling through your runs can actually make you RUN SLOWER❗️
Sounds crazy right?😱 But maximum power output actually requires supreme relaxation of your muscles 💆🏻💪🏼
Think of a great golf swing 🏌 Can you imagine how slow the swing would be if the golfer tensed up all their muscles throughout the entire range of motion? It would be absolutely terrible! 🙅🏻
Next time you run fast or sprint, try implementing the following tips ☝🏼 (which will require you to stay relaxed while you run!):
1️⃣ High Heel Recovery: Sprinting is a CYCLICAL movement! In order to cycle as fast as possible, the leg that's swinging forward must be shortened as much as possible by lifting your heel to your bum🍑
Think of how a figure skater has to bring in their arms and legs in closer to their body in order to spin faster!
2️⃣ Upright Posture: Don't slump your shoulders forward! This will impair the degree to which your arms can help propel you.
3️⃣ Neutral Head Position: If you protract your neck out, not only are you excessively extending your cervical spine (which can be painful), it can actually make you look up too much and prevent you from moving forward effectively. Keep the head/neck neutral and your gaze 👀 set in front of you.
4️⃣ Arm Movement: If you're too tense, your arms won't be helping you run faster as much as they could be. Keep that chest open, and swing your arms through relaxed shoulders. Your stride will open up as your arms do.
*NOTE* this was filmed near the back end of the treadmill to prevent the handle bars from blocking the view of foot contact. Typically, workouts on treadmill should be performed between the front and middle of the belt to reduce risk of falling*
TAG SOMEONE WHO SHOULD LOOSEN UP WHEN THEY RUN💃🏻🙆🏻
When placing the crown of your head on the floor is not giving you enough of a stretch, try resting your cheek on the floor. That's when you get a beautiful stretch in your hammies, back, shoulders and neck. Even your feet will thank you 🙏🏼
Good morning beautiful ones ♥️

Proprioceptif reseptörlerin gelişimi atletik performansıda etkilemektedir. Örnek vermek gerekirse swiss ball üzerinde yatarak dumbell press egzersizini yaptığımızı düşünelim; top üzerinde dengeniz stabil olmadığından, göğüs kaslarınızı çalıştırırken daha fazla fibril aktif olacaktır. Bu göğüs kaslarınızın %5 kadar daha fazla gelişim sağlayacağı anlamına gelmektedir.Vücudunuz hangi hareketi yapacak olursa olsun, ilk olarak core kasları devreye girecektir. Bunu anlamak için bir elinizi sıkıca karnınıza bastırın ve sonra diğer elinizle bir yumruk atın. Yumruk atmaya başladığınızda, core kaslarınızın stablizasyon için kasıldığını hissedeceksiniz çünkü power house bölgesi bedenimizin merkezidir.
Dengenizi geliştirmek için yapacağınız balans çalışmaları şunları sağlayacaktır.
Adalenin daha aktif olmasını sağlamak
Koordinasyonun gelişmesini sağlamak
Core kaslarınızın fonksiyonel olarak kuvvetlenmesini sağlamak.Denge kaybının sebep olduğu burkulma ve sakatlıkları önlemek.Proprioception çalışmaları, profesyonel sporcular tarafından çok sık kullanılmaktadır. Bir basketbolcunun bosu (yarım top) üzerine çıkarak şut antrenmanı yapması, bir sörfçünün denge tahtası üzerinde beklemesi birer örnektir.
I grew up in the Mind and Body studio at Gold’s Gym Lorton. It was on the gym’s yoga mats that I learned how to gain control over my thoughts, as Body Flow instructors led class through meditation. On weekend nights, the soles of my feet touched nearly every inch of the studio’s golden floor, as I discovered my love for modern dance. I remember watching myself in the mirrors as yoga slowly transformed into improvised choreography. Tears slid down my face as euphoria overcame me, and I found the confidence to move freely. Veins flooded with fresh oxygen. Eyes closed. Body tumbled and turned… until my heartrate settled into calmness. But through these euphoric highs, I would never wish to turn back time. But if it were possible, then I would invite you to have a seat with 14-year-old me. Tell her that in a few years, she’d discover what it’s like to live so fully that she’d inspire others to be more courageous. Tell her that she’d spend her weekends running the hill on Richmond Highway… just to dance as soon as she’d reach the top. But most important, let her know that when adversity hits, life is just waiting for her to take a chance on herself. So as I filled the gym with energy on this quiet Sunday night, I watched as my lungs expanded and contracted beneath healthy skin. I saw myself through years of growth and call this place my home.
