@jroman3248 making the twisted squat look easy 🙌 #quadsonquads 😧
@jaredmaynard_pt astutely pointed out that we missed an obvious opportunity to make this look like a sweet dance move on our last vid by not putting it to music...
This one’s for you Jared 🎶 💃🏻 🕺
Can you do this seated pike dislocate flow? This is a great way to mobilize the shoulders and spine as you get a nice hamstring stretch. Move slowly and with control. The wider your hands are on the stick, the easier it will be. Use a weighted stick like I did in this video for more of a challenge. As you lean forward keep a flat back for as long as possible. If it feels good for you then curl the spine forwards as you compete the dislocate.

The Instagram challenges that I like doing! lol .
Checking them feet flexibility. Also I realised I need to come up from down and this one I slightly cheated by finding balance and lifting up. But hey it’s still tough though. .
Hey you! if you’re mindlessly going to try this DONT. For fucks sake you can injure yourself so please please please please be mindful and EXTREMELY AWARE about your body. Your ankles need to be very strong otherwise you will break it or your toes. HONOUR YOUR BODY ALWAYS. That’s all kbye. .
Also one last thing who can tell I ate cheese burst pizza yesterday. AND THAT IM ON NY SECOND DAY OF MY PERIOD!!!!!These abs be forming more solid I must say. 👽 .
Practice daily. Stay safe. Stay humble.
Pistol Squat, the King of all Leg exercise!
This calisthenics movement allows you to build tremendous strength in your lower body. As well as working your abs & lower back, practising pistol squats & developing the mobility needed to preform them efficiently, will improve your balance & all over body control #remedymoves 📸 @gillybeangirl
This one is about training the feet!
Mobility challenges: the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts? But do we spend time exploring those individual parts? Insta challenges are easy to establish as a ‘cool trick’, one in which you observe, you try, then succeed or ‘fail.’ However there are great physical and mental benefits to gain in spending time researching the nuances of movement. If not for anything but understanding more about how your own body moves. .
As I started playing around with intricacies of subtle connection in a #stickchallenge I saw, the more I valued the connection of prop to foot, foot to leg (lever), leg to hip, breath to body. This simple movement idea has unlimited possibilities. My interest grew from some pelvis control training I am doing from guidance of @roopsihota and daily coordination routines with @nilteisner.
It’s very cool when you can swivel your body from front to back while keeping the stick raised on the feet. But, how do we break that down? How can I teach people the finer details? I started with the feet. I spent the week rolling the stick in various ways on the soles of the feet, to the tops, to the sides - got stick to the face a a few times 🙂 This is what I like to call movement research 🙂 .
Try it! I am sure people have named this type of thing before but for me, the way I was lengthening one leg and bending the other felt like I was pulling on an arrow to shoot from a bow - so thats the name for me!! Check out the difference between right and left. Which comes easier to you? Can you softly lower the leg? What happens if the stick falls? Can you recover it? How slow can you move? .
Try and tag me and see what you can come up with!! Have a great weekend! .

Okay, I’ve been challenged by some peeps by a move they saw on @gymnasticbodies and then my girl @beachyogagirl posted it today too so I thought I’d go for it.
Make sure to swipe 👈🏼 because although it looks like I nailed it was all happy and celebrated, I looked again at the way he was doing it on @gymnasticbodies and it’s much tougher than the way I accomplished mine, so, I’ve got work to do lol.. Literally loosing my crackers in this one 😆👊🏼 Who’s going to give this a try?? #mobilitygoals#mobilitychallenge#anklebreaker#Yg12life#BodyMA ...
🍗LEG DAY BURNER🍗
some of my favorites to throw into a workout to get your legs shaking! swipe & save to try it out🔥
also i posted yesterday about my 4 week challenge i want to do for november! i got a great response & i’m super excited for it! i wanted to explain my thoughts/ideas behind it. the challenge is called BYIA (build your inner athlete) & the reason behind this is that i’m a huge proponent of being more functional with your workouts rather than just hoping on machines or doing endless amounts of cardio. i love planning lifts that involve stability, mobility & plyos (similar to training an athlete would go through). it’s an awesome way to switch things up & challenge your body. so my 4 week challenge will be an amount of progressive overload of your body to start feeling stronger & get out of your plateau funk! i’ll be posting more details as we near november, so keep an eye out! sign up w a friend & complete it together. 4 weeks for only $5 (to hold yourself accountable to finish)✨
happy friday y’all & shoutout to my beautiful girlfriend for the endless support @baby_schade 💛💛
How's the mobility in your shoulders? Tried these for the first time today and though it was a bit difficult to roll the hands through without (or with little) knuckles touching, I was still able to make it! I see this become part of my weekly routine for shoulder pre-hab.
Como você está de mobilidade?

Seated presses with a twist?😎
After doing a qualifier today it seriously made me reconsider my future in crossfit😅🤦🏼♀️ ... Then figured I maybe should just focus on my sircus acts from this point forward🤔🤹🏼♀️🤸🏼♀️
(And possibly piss some people off with my «theatrical stupidness» in the process😌)
Let’s see what happens with this head. #MentalGame
this is a little glimpse of my workout prior to deadlift. when i head into a workout/lift having already broken a sweat, that’s when i find i perform my best. so schedule in a little more time for your warmups❗️
a couple of key take away a from this video:
🔅when doing the internal & external rotation move the band closer to your knee
🔅when rocking forward, your knee shouldn’t significantly pass over your toes (if they do just move your front food forward)
🔅keep your chest up & core ENGAGED
🔅TAKE YOUR TIME. this video is sped up x3 but in real life i went a lotttt slower & didn’t rush through this
give this a try & let me know how it helps enhance your workouts. happy thursday💛💛
Desafío para la movilidad de caderas! El festejo final es porque después de 12 intentos pude dar la vuelta completa sin que se me caiga la zapatilla 😂🙈🤸.
. Sacate las zapatillas, acostate en el piso, probálo y etiquetame! (incluso si no te sale) Seguro alguien más se prende 💪👏👏
Mobility move for this cold Thursday. Dead bugs is an exercise I use with my clients especially the ones that are having a hard time engaging the core.
These are easy to do and can be done anywhere. Simply place a stability ball at your midsection place a knee and the opposite hand on the ball as you slowly lower the other leg and arm.
The key is to keep your back on the ground, only lower your leg as low as you can while maintaining your lower back on the ground. 3 sets of 10 each side is a great goal.

Wanted to go for a run but it’s raining. So instead I took @rsharveyfitness #movementchallenge and modified it a slight bit. The idea is simple: rotate the stick keeping your palms up and open! @origomovement @wanderlovinyogi @ru.be.nn @jpatinho @rokasmove and all the other lovely movers I forgot to mention: what can you make out if this? Not in terms of “doing” it. More in terms of playing with the idea? 🤗✌🏼

@lingmunt is just weeks away from her third marathon! She qualified for the NYCM with a 1/2 Marathon time of 1:27⚡️ She just complete the longest run of her prep last week (22 miles) and lived to tell the tale! Below is her testimonial:
“My goal for this marathon training cycle, and I honestly wasn’t sure it could be done, was to maintain as much strength and mobility as I was able to. I know that my body becomes less flexible and mobile due to the running (volume, exhaustion, lack of time to do maintenance work, restricted movement of running itself for long periods of time), so I asked @mitchelljameski_ to come up with a plan to keep me strong and mobile while allowing me to make endurance and speed progress during marathon training.
My expectations were definitely exceeded! I have been able to maintain most of my strength and am more mobile than I have ever been, which I think has been the main reason I’ve been able to maintain my strength. My running has also improved thanks to his mindfulness of not overtraining me:) Thank you for helping me more than words can say!”
So excited for your race keep crushing it!!

Fitness Trainers - are you prepared?
In the holistic health and fitness industry, there is a process generally followed in order to improve one’s physiological status - where you begin depends on your current status.
The baseline is in the middle, where there has been no significant trauma or injury, and no extra sport conditioning has been done. This is where a large variety of the population sit. Bodies are functioning, but not necessarily at their peaks. They may have rehabilitation needs for previous injuries or trauma.
From this point, if one becomes injured, they must advance to the therapist. When therapy fails, surgery can be required.
Going the other way, conditioning oneself for specific skills requires enough range/mobility to access positions, and the strength/conditioning to coordinate the movements necessary for the function.
So what we have now, is a collection of disciplines and sciences which address challenges of human health and fitness, but umpteen professionals to be referred through.
The majority of fitness Trainers operate purely in strength and conditioning, and as soon as a client becomes injured they are referred to a therapist. If mobility/prehab work is done beforehand, there is much less a risk of this happening.
As the general population become stronger, more inquisitive about their bodies and want to try more difficult sports or challenges, Trainers absolutely must keep up with the fact that clients can get injured from the training, and should be learning how to mitigate this from happening.
To spot an injury before it happens, to spot a chronic biomechanical issue, to spot a trauma or soft tissue dysfunction. These things cause injuries and bad performance and any Trainer worth their salt should be aware of what is dangerous anatomically, risk wise, skill wise, neurologically, etc.
It should not be the case that when a client hurts their knee running, or their shoulder doing calisthenics, that the Trainer just refers. As professionals we should keep developing our depth and bread of knowledge to maximise the quality of service we offer so that we can keep people performing better and more safely under our care 🙏🏼

Trying not to allow #life to stress me out, I decided I needed a very, very, very long stretch to ease my nerves. This was actually a tiring challenge to hold this position and I suggest it for those looking for a more useful way to relieve yourself......of tension, #LoL . Both physically and mentally. Try and time yourself. See how long you can hold it!

If you were so inclined, you might call this little sequence #evilshittodowithlunges .😈 This is hard work, but great at ticking off lots of boxes for the lower body, including hamstring strengthening, quad stretch and strength, ankle dorsiflexion, glute activation, hip mobility, balance...
*Step back slowly from utkatasana into lunge, drop the knee down. Bring pelvis into posterior tilt, ground through front foot, hover back knee inches off mat. Keep driving down through back knee as fingertips and crown of head reach up. Hold.
*Drop back knee down, hold foot to bring heel to sit bone for a passive quad stretch, then release hand but keep heel squeezing to sit bone. Holy hamstrings!
*Lean into front leg, driving knee forward over ankle as you lift the back foot and bring the leg out in front into a pistol squat - don't let the foot touch the ground.
*Keep foot lifted as you rise up on standing leg, lift knee into chest, then straighten leg and point toe.
*Release foot back down into utkatasana, and repeat other side.
