Injuries don’t have to sideline you from your training. “Fit the exercise to the individual, not the individual to the exercise “. —
Find appropriate variations/lateralizations that will allow you to beat train the quality you are looking to change. —
Dealing with some sciatic issues has made finding non-provocative positions challenging, even when pressing. Tall and half kneeling caused too much glute tension which irritated and the straight leg Flexion of the z-press was painful. But kneeling felt great (albeit more challenging).
No one showed up for the 6am class so that meant time for a flow! Snatch plus wild thing press for 4 rounds 5 each side. I’m not very proficient at these yet (first time doing them) but they were fun and really opened up my shoulders and hips! I love having my kb flow back in my routine, hopefully this will help w my constant fatigue and that “flat” feeling I’ve been having since coming back from NY. Today is going to be filled with a healthy dose of exercise; flow this morning, crossfit at 12:30 and then yoga tonight! Finally did yoga yesterday for the first time after coming back from New York and it felt so good! #namaste#flow#kettlebell#kettlebell#ionlypostthesesoiremembertheworkoutandcandeleteallmypicturesonmyphone
The goal is to fix ourselves
Sometimes we need a little help to get over the hump and that’s where I tend to come in
I like to work the hands-on stuff that is hard to do independently (plus I don’t like counting reps for people). I like to teach it, then let clients work independently
This particular person had a very flexible foot, just needed a few exercises to strengthen her foot to support the flexibility. So I was able to show her a few simple exercises and she can manage herself
The skill is in using the smallest amount of treatment necessary to accomplish the goal
Huge congrats to EDK Bell Boss Stephanie Boss (the name says it all!) on her latest Trail Marathon accomplishment! Steph has been attending Kettlebell SGT (small group training) classes and private coaching sessions with me for the past seven months, prepping for this run (and other runs on her packed race schedule) and it has been an amazing journey of strength and endurance to witness!
To all the runners out there - strength training is crucial to your training program and it will only improve your results! Building a solid strength routine into your training run schedule is key... See for yourself...
This is what I love about coaching. The students of EDK are dedicated, courageous and inspiring!
Cheers Stephanie! 💪🏻

#tbt To race day on the CO mountains and the old adage it takes a village. Today is a note of thanks to my village that got me to the 13000’ summit and back down the to finish line smiling. To Coach Cathy @cyndestad for the spot-on running strategy and unwavering belief in my abilities. To Trainer Ericka @edktrainingmn for building me into a kettlebell power house of strength. To my training partner Erik @enjhull for making hill repeats fun and pushing me to a PR day. To my tribe of friends and family always cheering near and far. And to my GP for all of the encouragement and support. A little air, a big dose of grit, and months of prep. It was an epic day! ❤️⛰❤️
