You train hard, eat well, but how do you keep your mental health in check? Do you practice meditation? Do yoga? Colour? Paint? Play? For me it will always be journaling and exercise. I’m such a busy body that meditation is never something that has stuck for me.. Naturally for me, my mind always jumps to the worst conclusion, the worst outcome, the worst prediction. I’ve come to the conclusion that my mental health is something that I probably always need to work, almost daily. Journalling is all about cultivating positive thoughts. It’s about rewiring your brain to jump to a positive thought instead of immediately to a negative thought. I’ve never seen anything work like journaling. I notice a difference on my mindset and my mood within a few days. If you’ve tried meditation and find that it isn’t for you, consider trying this out. There are plenty of similar journals, but my favourite is The Five Minute Journal @fiveminutejournal #lookafteryourmentalhealth ♥️
A great little machine from @concept2inc that comes in handy for variety & changing up your conditioning.
Back in a good position, reaching up high every stroke, legs bending with every stroke
Split stance is effective & faster for some people but like anything if you don’t do an equal amount on both sides then you’ll develop an imbalance. Only do it if you’re going to alternate left foot forward & right foot forward, don’t just stick to one side
1️⃣Short strokes cause by trying to rush & go as fast as possible, ironically leads to you being slower
2️⃣This one is subtle but my body drops before my hands/arms, everything needs to be in sync
3️⃣Horrific Back position
Like any machine good technique practice at low intensity will help you improve, videoing yourself will also help. #skierg
It’s always great to get outside the gym and practice some fun skills. Last weekend we headed down to the Dock beach in Kinsale, practiced some skills, did a few wods and went for a well needed dip in the ocean! Nothing quite like it #crossfitreturn#irishcrossfit @crossfit
Family at Rônin 😍👨👩👧🐶 Ninja baby imminent 👶🏼⚔️ Shout out to this lady and all those CrossFittin’ moma bosses around the world that work hard to maintain their fitness throughout pregnancy.
Hands up if your kids have been smashing the assault bike since day zero 🤗 🙌🏻
So myself and @oreillycolm took a last minute decision to stop screaming at people on the sidelines of fitness competitions and actually join in for The Powerful Invitational mixed pairs next weekend. We’ve obviously given ourselves LOADS of time to prep and I’m clearly going to smash it considering all of the CrossFit I’ve been doing this year (lol! 🙄) but @oreillycolm has guaranteed me he will shoulder the burden of any of the ‘real’ work 😆 Actually looking forward to it, hope the sun comes out for the weekend 🙌🏻 #CrossFit#competitor#RX#masters#team#fun#Blonyxstrong#doingitfortheburgers#irishcrossfit#crossfitgirls#metcon#cardiNO @crossfitireland @blonyx @crossfitpowerful
