Real Health Goals.!!💪🏽The ultimate reason why I live the way I do is for these results! To go to the physician and be told I have the EKG of a young athlete is awesome! Preventative health is key. And numbers do not lie! All other treatments cannot give you these results. Hard Work!!! BP on fleek!😂😂😂 #levelnblend#FitDoc#FitMom#DanceHealthFitness#LevelUp#OlderandStronger
There was a time maybe 4 years ago when I wanted to deadlift 137 kg (300lbs) so badly! Today I did sets of 5 at 137! And since @falkstrengthandconditioning just gave me the secret squirrel method of stringing reps together, they didn’t feel like death!
This is one of my Monday “check in with myself” pictures. The morning after a re-feed. No, I’m not in my underwear so relax. 🙄. I wish I had a good before picture... I’ll try to find one. When I was on templates, I was eating over a THOUSAND calories less and weighed 6-7 pounds more than I do right now. This post is for those of you (you know who you are 😘)that are on templates. You could be eating so much more, and be so much happier. I strongly encourage you to hire a nutrition coach !! Even if it’s just for a while. DM me if you need a coach. I know several !! Also ... you don’t want to hear this buuuut Since I gave up sugar 43 days ago, the changes in how I feel have been crazy!!! I told my Husband tonight that I feel like a new person. I really do. It’s so worth it if you have arthritis, chronic pain or any auto immune disorder. I promise it’s worth it and it’s not really that hard to do. I didn’t fall and hit my head and decide to give up sugar, I gave it up due to a food intolerance test. Holler if you need support or need to know where to turn. I have people. 🤗 #iknowacoachortwo#fitover50#nosugar#foreverfit#youcantoo#olderandstronger#eatclean#absarejustabonus#crossfitmasters#brutemasters @brute.strength #crossfit217
Improve your posture
The Deep Squat to Hamstring Stretch is a great corrective move and mobility drill. It targets key muscles in the lower body and spine while also improving gross movement patterns.
Our ancestors gravitated to the butt-down-to-the-heels position because it was their only option (chairs weren’t invented yet), and guess what? It worked on many aspects of human movement, including injury prevention.
Thanks to the invention of the chair - sitting for a majority of your day makes your hamstrings tight among other things. As a result, movement isn’t too easy when things are tight and locked up. Your body forgets which parts are supposed to move or not so then you end up with low back pain, knee pain or simple frustration because you can’t do something that you used to.
If you haven’t been working on any of the mobility drills I have been posting then I would not recommend this one to be the first to start with. This move is definitely one you need to progress to once you have a bit more mobility in your hips.
1.Stand tall with your feet wider than hip-width apart.
2.Bend forward at your waist to grab your toes with your hands.
3.Drop down into a deep squat while keeping your arms straight, elbows inside your knees, back flat and chest up.
4.While holding your toes, raise your hips back and straighten your knees until you feel a good stretch in the back of your legs. Hold for 1 to 2 seconds.
5.Continue for the remainder of the set.
Remember that every aspect of a training or rehab program has a purpose. At the end of the day you have to ask yourself “why” you are implementing this movement into your life.

🔸 I managed to tippy toe front squat 130kg/286lbs for 3️⃣ (maybe i should start competing in strongest toes contests 😑 🤦🏼♀️), but for reals, so much work to do to fix imbalances, and grateful to be working with @max_aita and @goodvibratseans to get things in line. Weightlifting is about balance and symmetry neither side can dominate, lots of unilateral work to get my right leg up to par.
🔹I didn’t smack my face when attempting to be athletically graceful after doing all my accessory and bodybuilding work. .
😃 happy to finally be allowed to use my belt again @hookgripstore is my fave.
