☝🏼 Stretching is always a hot topic. Does it work? Do you need to? Are we actually lengthening muscles? Is it even worth your time?
💆🏻♀️ While I don’t think stretching is the missing piece to your routine that’s going to “fix” you, I do think that it can be beneficial for modulating pain and feels pretty good.
🤔 Addressing the reason things are “tight” are higher up on the priority list, but if you live at your desk and stress starts to take over, a little stretch ain’t hurt nobody.
🚨 The stretches demoed address some of the more common areas of “tightness” in the neck, jaw and head. Use these as a means to help get you through your busy days, but don’t put off having the issue assessed professionally.
🔑 Spend ~30 seconds in each stretch and make sure to breathe. Utilizing breathe is the key.

Most people come home from work, change into comfy clothes, lay on the couch and turn on some mindless show while relaxing from a long ass day 📺 #ivebeenthere .
For a long time I was that girl. Now I come home, change into comfy clothes, iced coffee in hand (thank you #McDonald ’s 🙏🏻) and get to chat with people who brighten up my day, and I help to brighten there’s! ☀️ .
And to think— this is work. This can be my freaking career. #winning
I’ll choose helping people over my current job any and everyday. There’s no denying that 😇 .
What would you choose to do instead of your current job? 🤨
I woke up today feeling exhausted. I really didnt want to do any workouts. So, I skipped the ride and slept in an extra hour. I finally got out of bed and didnt want to swim, but was motivated by another swimmer's consistency at #lafitness so I made the drive down. My shoulders was trashed from several hours of yardwork the day before, but I made it through thanks to the mystery #swimmer
Now, after getting home and doing a couple more hours of yardwork, I have to decide if I want to get that ride in, clean up the mess I left in the garage or go to sleep early.
Worked OFF My Appetite!!! 😩

It starts on WEDNESDAY and it's only $20 local and $25 for out of state.
Your decision that it's time to CHANGE!

🔹Love and Support
🔹Clients average losing 2-4lbs in 3 days
Say IM IN BELOW
🔸Shoulder press: do not drop your elbows all the way down, stop around a 90 degree angle it keeps the tension in your mid delt. Don’t forget to breath!!
🔸Cable rope pullback: works your rear delts so good! Keep a good posture, do not overextend your range of motion when pulling back. •
🔸Single-armed cable lat pull down: make that mind to muscle connection! Your mind is in control of your muscle movement. •
🔸Lat-pull down: this one and the following workout on the cable are similar however I love the cable one way more. Get that full range of motion in both. Chest up head forward. The negative movements in back workouts are just as vital as the positive movements. DO NOT rush any movements! Keep it controlled and steady.
4 Sets: •
🔸Box jumps 15 reps: Make sure your knees are not bending inward or collapsing when landing and your toes are pointed forward. •
🔸High-step up 12 reps: try not to push off from the ground as much as you can. Keep all the weight while going up into your HEEL never your toe. Higher step ups require more balance and more muscle play. •
🔸Squat Jump 20 reps: push through your toes and sit back into the squat while keeping your core tight and engaged. •
🔸Single-legged Romanian deadlift w/dumbbell 12 reps: keep your knee slightly bent & your shoulders back and the dumbbell close to your body. The movement is all through your hips and NEVER your back. Keep your weight on your heel. —————— •
🔸5 pyramid sets (Start light and gradually increase the weight) on the squat rack. I start off with 15lbs on each side at 20 reps and keep adding weight while lowering the amount of reps. •
⚠️TIP: Most of the time your weight should be kept in your heel and not your toes when it comes to leg workouts excluding jumping squats.
