GET AMP’D IN AUGUST!! Have you tried the Gold’s AMP app, yet?? Like running 4 miles on the treadmill before this wasn’t enough?! The answer was NO, I decided to put those legs TO REST with the “RIP LEGS” with Coach Daigle.
I loved this short 17 Minute, but high intensity workout! I didn’t even know the elliptical went up to 20, but I crushed all 17 minutes of this workout! This 17 minute HIIT style work was a perfect way to end my workout session and a great way to strengthen the legs.
Being an over achiever I also did “Stretch Yo Legs” with Coach Chance. After a crazy leg workout today definitely needed to stretch and this was perfect in targeting just the legs.
If you haven’t tried AMP, now is the time! Go to the Gold’s Gym website and get a 7 day trial!
Alright folks, so here are the results of my little BFR experiment from the 6 weeks post op mark to the 12 week:
06/29/18 (6 weeks post op)
5cm above patella: 49cm
20cm above patella: 62cm
08/10/18 (12 weeks post op)
5cm above patella: 51cm
20cm above patella: 64.5cm
Overall, I am pretty pleased with a ~1inch gain on my quad in 6 weeks. Circumference isn't the most objective measure, but its definitely the most practical. Would this growth have happened without BFR? Maybe. But I'd like to think (based on anecdote and some research I've seen) that the use of BFR probably contributed to it at least partially.
Of course, this mostly only confirms that calves don't grow.
We got a rainbow to start, but the ride was straight hell. 267km total, Pacific Marine Circle Route. Vic to Renfrew to Duncan to home. @matthew.poirier5 is no longer my friend. Strava is weird, map is of second day, numbers are first day. #riplegs#tour#cycletour#biking#lots
You are ONE WORKOUT away from a GOOD MOOD! 🤗💕 get those pre weekend endorphins pumping! I’m committed to a 30 minute hiit leg workout this morning. BUT it’s only 30 minutes? 😳 How bad could it be?!
Disappointed with another second place finish but trying to remind myself I did the best I could while being wildly undertrained. Coming in second to another professional runner isn't a terrible position to be in I guess. Happy to score some USATF points in the ultra circuit for the Team Excelsior ladies! #skyline50k#ouch#riplegs @scenaperformance
This week I had the honor to learn from one the greatest dancers/choreographers out there, including my favorite @franklinyu82. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Summer Dance Academy pushed me to my absolute limits but as a result I've improved SO much as a dancer in just one week, it's unbelievable. One of the best weeks in terms of growth ever. All thanks to amazing teachers and the most fun choreographies I ever learned. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I want to thank everyone at SDA and the teachers for this opportunity and a special thanks to @ic.notmetho for bringing me here!! 😁🎉 feeling very motivated to become a greater dancer now 🔥🙏🏻
Tour de Big Bear was tough as hell. Started way in the back of the pack and had to chase the front group for 20 miles, caught them and did my thing. Definitely coming back next year! Maybe I’ll even do the HC if I’m up for it. #riplegs
Chainsmokers vs. KYGO ride this morning and I’m pretty damn proud of this one. This is the first time I’ve ranked in the top half of the class. I’ve taken 5 classes, 5 days in a row. My legs are shot and I didn’t want to go this morning but I’m so glad I did because I love to see how far I can push myself. • I’ll take 9/21 riders overall. 🚴🏼♀️🚴🏼♀️
