MOVING AIR 💨 Few people think breathing and muscles have anything to do with each other. Even fewer associate breathing (or lack thereof) with injury. But if you look at Melinda’s trunk and hip alignment with her knees and elbows on the wall, you can see the swayback nature of her posture. Her chest is full of air, and her back is under a lot of pressure (she’s already had 3+ spine surgeries, including a fused sacrum). Performing a modified Serratus Wall Squat ( @posturalrestoration ), my client exhales her ribs down in the front, moving air to her back, allowing her structure to properly support her weight. I sped up the video for affect. You can watch her back become supported and stable, her shoulder blades dropping down away from her ears, and the simple aesthetic of returning to a healthy posture. This is one of hundreds of exercises designed to breathe you back to a better body. When applied to strength programs, the body becomes unstoppable.

At our appointment today we found out that his joints are stressed in his ankles and knees. He will need AFOs to assist in helping correct this a bit. Serial casting may help as well. He basically has -5° flex in both ankles where on average we should have +20°. What this means is that while we use our ankle joint to flex our foot up and down. He uses his Subtalar Joint. The one used to move our foot side to side. All this combined means yes his feet joints are majorly stressed but it is also causing his knee joints to begging bowing. Joints rubbing together. In the long run this will cause ostioarthritis before he in 20 years old. The solution will be the casting and AFOs He is sore. He is tired but he wants to do whatever it will take to help his body. Keeping active plus taking a break to correct at least a bit and relieve some pain.

When people say they wish they had my dedication and commitment...all I can do is sit and stare at them!! . This is not easy for me. I do love working out everyday even on the days I don’t want to, but it’s still a struggle most days to press play. And I’d love to be one of those people that can eat ALL the things and look absolutely amazing. But reality is, I’m not that person and plus I know what too much of bad food really does to the body...even when you don’t look overweight. . I’m not out to be a bikini model, I’m just out to be healthy, feel comfortable in my clothes, and strong AF. I’m a mom of three beautiful babies, I don’t expect my stomach to magically have a six pack, I just don’t want it chillin over my jeans when I sit down. . So where are all my girls out there with 5378 excuses why they feel like ish but still won’t commit??? YOU, are the ones I want to JOIN ME...Not because I pity you, but only because I once was that girl so I want to help change your life like I did for myself. . Drop me a 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️ below and let’s do this. . #singlemoms #busymoms #momlife #athomeworkouts #nojudgementcircle #strongaf #committohealth #healthyhappy #nomuffintops #postpartumfitness #pregnancyfitness #5monthspostpartum #ocmoms #ochikers

I am NOT a Certified Personal Trainer I am NOT a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist  I am NOT a Specially trained Chef . I am a mom, wife and online health & fitness motivator (aka coach) on a personal journey to be as healthy as I can, to PREVENT sickness & disease caused by unhealthy eating & dormancy. . I do my research, I read, I practice, I ask questions, I learn from trial & error to ultimately do what works best for me. . I LOVE being an online coach so I can share what I have learned & inspire others to find GREATER health. 😊 . I set visual goals for myself also like: stronger abs, leaner thighs, smaller pants size, inches off the midsection... without making it about the SCALE!  The scale is misleading and can mess with my head too much. 🤯 . Setting these achievable goals, gives me something 'tangible' to work for which not only makes me happier when I look better... but it ultimately gets me healthier! . I'm happy to have anyone else along with me for this crazy rewarding ride. I will welcome you into my support group so we can work on ourselves together💕 . If you want to learn more about being an online coach like me, I'd be happy to give you a sneak peek into what it's all about. . Just comment 'sneak peek' or private message me. :-) . . . . #heretohelp #idontbite #joinme #workingmama #smile #enjoytheride #doitforyourself #healthyliving #loveyourself #justdoyou #makenoapologies #takechances #livefully #livelong #positivevibes #positivelife #runyourlife #bossmama #girlboss #workforyourself #dothework #enjoythebenefits #wednesdaywisdom #instapic #strongaf #mindovermatter

✨ Strength Goals ✨ Girls usually laugh at me when I tell them I’d like to see them do a push up, one day. 🙈 They laugh even harder when I tell them I’d like to prepare them for a body weight chin up! #goodonebek . But it’s not funny - it’s achievable for many of you. 💪 . The ingredients to get there, include: ▪️The right technique. ▪️The right starting point. For the push up, I have clients use a bench or a bar to start, set at a height where they can comfortably perform 12-15 reps. ▪️The right progressions over time - lower the bar a little, once you’ve gotten comfy with 12-15 reps. Stay challenged! ▪️Consistently train that movement. ▪️And then, I’ll lower the reps with each new program. So you’ll perform less pushups in total - but they’ll be a lot more difficult! ▪️Repeat until you’re doing full pushups, like my babe @katcoombes94 💪 . 💪This explanation is over simplified of course, but these basic steps are what I’ll use to achieve that strength goal!! . . . @active_life_fitness . . . #strongwomen #strengthtraining #strongaf #pushups #fitgirls #youcandoit #gymmotivation #gym #fitnesstips #healthylifestyle #chickswholift #girlswithmuscle #personaltrainer #fatloss #bodygoals #fitaf

There are plenty of runners who don't need or like races. I'm not one of them. I do like running for running's sake, but I also like going and finding a race that presents an opportunity to push myself to do something new (new pace, new distance, different terrain). I like putting a plan together for a big scary goal and seeing where the training takes me, because I learn something new about myself every time. As much as runners say stuff like, "It's the cheapest sport in the world! Just go get some shoes and get out there!", that's not *entirely* true, and it's especially not true if you want to sign up for races. I am extraordinarily lucky to be able to afford to race when I want. I really really dig that there's a org like @runinstride that helps low-income runners buy race bibs so they can go out and chase down their goals, too! Thanks for the new singlet, @runinstride ! I can't wait to get after some big scary stuff in it this summer!

Comfort zones and cardio. Nothing kills progress and goals faster than a well established comfort zone. For years I’ve preached the dangers of a comfort zone to all types. Those afraid of pressing weight, those afraid of changing up their workouts, and those afraid of cardio. And I was the hypocrite who fell into the latter. So now I’m taking my own medicine. I’m firmly outside of my comfort zone with 3-4 days of HIIT cardio a week on top of my weight training 6 days per week. And man can I not only see, but FEEL the immense difference. First in my day to day life. I have so much more energy now. I breath, feel, rest and live better. I have a much stronger control over my diabetes management and general overall health. And here’s the real bonus, I am dominating my weight training like never before. All thanks to cardio. My oxygen and blood flow is so much better giving me those incredible pumps. My stamina is through the roof. I’m starting and finishing every workout strong. I feel incredible. Sure. Those 30 minutes of HIIT with @douggentry_ are hell. Absolutely brutal. But after, and the positive affects carried forward are so worth that price. If it were easy, it wouldn’t be work. Anyway, that’s my 2 cents on cardio and comfort zones. For what it’s worth. #diabetesmanagement #type1diabetes #type1warrior #hiitcardio #hiittraining #underconstruction #buildingaclassic #classicphysique #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #personaltraining #afitnation #anytimefitness #strongaf

Pretty fucking stoked about this last lift if you can’t tell from the post-lift dance 🤣 (first video shown) at 395lbs from the floor. I’ve been chasing that 400lbs deadlift for two years and she’s finally within reach—in fact, she probably could have been done today if I had just pussied up and put the weight on the bar LOL. 400 is gonna happen this weekend.

||Motivation is crap. It comes and goes. Find what your passionate about. Then you can be driven. When you’re driven, you don’t give a damn-David Goggins|| ✨We have so many bad days, trying to get up again can be hard. Motivating yourself everyday can be so god damn tough. I’ve been there with my ulcerative colitis flares, literally being put on your back and having to fight to get up again, to start from square one all over again. I knew I needed to move and eat nutritious foods to start feeling better. So I’d do a small workout daily, modifying literally every exercise until I built strength and muscle again. Some days I would have to stop every 30seconds to catch my breath but I kept going, even if it was just for 10 minutes. I couldn’t really eat too much so I would juice everything and drink these juices 6 times a day and from there I fought back. These times have definitely made me mentally stronger. But we’ve all had these times. So use these times to build that ‘warrior mentality’, let it fuel you. Stop listening to others and listen to your own voice in your head. Make your passion YOU! Find who the best YOU is? And let that passion to be a better version of YOU drive you forward everyday.✨ #notrunningonchampagne #runningonpassion #bedriven #motivationishard #aussiemum #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #colitiswarrior #fitness #health #tattoomum #passion #warriormentality #davidgoggins #hestheman #strongaf #inspirationalpodcasts #positiveselftalk #justgetup #sunnycoast #australia #ketolife #keto #juicing

Just wish I could focus on lower half as I do top half but hey, suns out so is back and arms ..........im always in jeans 😂😂😂. 51 yrs young and getting stronger by the months. Been training 2.5 years now, that's all. It's never too late. Its dedication and consistency that does it. I work bloody hard for this and as a PT, I push just as hard!

Worked on the wings and shoulders a bit today. 💪🏼🦅 Truly pushed to failure and that’s always an amazing feeling! 🤘🏼 • I’m making moves towards my powerlifting goals! I will be switching from @dalalovesdumbbells to a powerlifting coach in July. It’s bittersweet, but Dala is the most honest coach I have ever worked with. She easily could have thrown together a “powerlifting program” (and I’m sure a ton of online coaches probably do that to retain clients), but she was straight forward and told me that her expertise is in lifestyle coaching and she even gave me recommendations for powerlifting coaches. She is just an all around wonderful person and amazing coach (plus dat booty😻🍑🤷🏼‍♀️) Alright enough sappy stuff. Hahha. I am SO excited to transition into powerlifting and I look forward to my first competition hopefully end of September or October!!! 🤘🏼 • Don’t forget you still have 5 days to enter my giveaway in my last post! 🤗 It’s a full month of training and macros with my amazing coach Dala! Check it out! • PS: sorry for the political bullshit babble in the background. I forgot to turn the sound off. 🤦🏼‍♀️ • • #training #giveaway #powerlifting #transition #dldnation #dldbabes #wings #shoulders #gains #muscles #lifestyle #onlinecoach #honesty #integrity #programming #macros #fitbabe #dieliving #lululemon #pescience #reardelts #entertowin #failure #powerliftingmeet #squat #deads #benchpress #strongaf #womenwholift #liftheavyshit

A little about me... ⠀ I was not strong or confident growing up.⠀ ⠀ I grew up getting bullied. Nothing crazy, and my story isn't unique, but it was enough to hurt my self-esteem⠀ ⠀ How did I change this?⠀ ⠀ I started lifting weights! 💪🏻⠀ ⠀ Again, a classic story so far 😂 ⠀ ⠀ Now, I went into the gym for more shallow reasons:⠀ ⠀ To look better and be more attractive to women! 💃 ⠀ ⠀ Just keeping it 💯 here. I was a young recently single man! ⠀ But I have stayed for much more significant reasons⠀ ⠀ The gym is where I saw real success for the first time, like when I finally lifted 400lbs off the ground⠀ ⠀ The gym is where I learned valuable life lessons, like ”Hard work pays off” and ”self-care is necessary to succeed.”⠀ ⠀ And these lessons have helped me in the real world beyond the gym!⠀ ⠀ Being strong has helped me keep a confident mindset for the rest of my life⠀ ⠀ And the gym is where that confidence started!⠀ ⠀ Are you ready to become stronger and more confident in the gym?

The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is: successful people get back up every time they fall and they recognize failure is part of the journey. - If your not failing your not growing and your not learning. So don’t be afraid to fail. Be afraid of never knowing the life that is waiting for you on the other side of failure. - #fitnessvideos #selflove #lovetheprocess #loveyourjourney #strongaf #fitnessgoals2019 #fitnessmotivationdaily #strongisthenewsexy #liftheavyoftenasineveryday #getfitnowonline #getfitforlife #fitnessaddiction #exercisevideos #yougotthis #doitforyou #stoptheexcuses #accountability #womenwhosupportwomen #fitnesstransformation #foreverjourney #fitspo #fitnessandbaking #fitmama #motivation #findyourtribe #findyourwhy #changeyourmind #changeyourlife #tattooedmama

I love that Portugal is full of castles. It's so storybook I had a damn dove on my balcony this morning braiding my hair and two cats curled up around my feet for slippers while I watched the sunrise over cafe ole. I'm Princess Noportuguesespeakin ...and I'm the fairest lil trollop of them all... in the Algarve. Again... another title I'm ok with. . . . I don't know the name of this castle I'm afraid but I believe this is off the coast of Lisboa in the magical world of Disney. I believe that's accurate. I could live here if I were fluent...I don't think I would want to without knowing the language like I might in other countries and that's just my level of comfort being brown in Europe. I feel it's important to be honest about what that means and what its truly like. I'm a pretty princess in my heart, but I'm sensitive to the stares & faces as I move about. I don't let that show but it makes me sad here and there that I always have to be the tolerant adult. Now having said that, I'm a curvy ball of energy with red hair & I know that's not usual so I try to tough it out... ...but boy what a nice day it'll be when I won't feel I have to. Peace and love. 🇵🇹💙✌🏾💃🏾👸🏾🕊 . . . #travelbae #ijenetakesportugal #ijeneyourtravelbae

Back to my regular schedule 🙌🏽🙏🏽this fitness life is my sanity. - - Wanna grow your glutes?? Donkey kicks and cute little booty exercises ain’t it chief 🤨 if you wanna add mass to your a🍑🍑 you have to use progressive overload, resistance training and over all be consistent. - - Today’s Killer glute workout 🤮😍I’m currently at 185lbs on the following exercises 🤗 will be increasing the weight in the weeks to follow. When your body gets comfortable with lifting a certain weight it is no longer being challenged, muscles that aren’t challenged are not growing. It’s simple do more 🤷🏻‍♀️ - kneeling good mornings SM leg press Dumbbell squats SM hip thrusts - #momsthatlift #fitmomma #fitmom #fitnessislife #fitnessjunkie #progressiveoverload #progress #domore #showup #dothework #youcandomore #progressnotperfection #buildingabooty #train #trainer #consistency #hipthrusts #glutes #motivation #heretoinspire #squats #goodmornings #smithmachine #strongaf #bootybuilding #trainwithme #starttoday #investinyourself #arbonne #fueledbyarbonne

#Repost @brandon_pfs with @get_repost ・・・ A slight twist on the razor curl, Nordic or whatever you want to call it. - Most trainers/coaches realize the benefit of developing lower body strength and power. And within this we realize the importance of hamstring strength and resilience for performance. The Nordic leg curl is pretty money for building hamstring strength. And eccentric resilience. - The problem I tend to see is if someone doesn’t have enough strength or maybe they don’t have the motor awareness they tend to extend a lot and use the back to execute the exercise. The pelvis dumps anteriorly and we get a lot of unnecessary stress on the low back. - In this video @tuffygosewisch is working on the Nordic curl but with a big reach around a PB ball. The reach helps create space and allow air to move into the upper back. This will help normalize breathing inhaled positions. Increase thoracic kyphosis, decrease lumbar lordosis and increase intra abdominal pressure. So basically make it really had to use your low back. If the pelvis integrity is maintained the drill goes from being really to oh my god that is impossible. - Give it a try and let me know what you think. 👊🏼👊🏼 • • • • #strongaf #moveeveryday #strengthcoach #movementismedicine #coretraining #strengthandconditioning #movesmart #baseball ⚾️ #baseballism #baseballislife #hamstringworkout #hamstringexercise #legday

#WomenCrushingItWednesday Did all four of these exercises in 10-8-6-4-2-1 rotation this afternoon and finished it out with some #sprints on the #RowingMachine. 😓 Videos are of the following: 💪 #RearFootElevatedSplitSquats or #BulgarianSplitSquats @ 62 lbs each hand 💪 #KettlebellSnatch @ 45 lbs 💪 #WeightedLunges @ 62 lbs each hand 💪 #DoubleKettlebellPress @ 40 lbs each hand I started light(ish) and went up in weight as I decreased reps. I love the feeling of a heavy 1RM at the end of longer sets; mentally challenging, but over faster! 🎥 Cred: @benjim1331

It has been a tough couple of days for me. As many of you know I suffer with depression. The lost of my dog has put that depression into full swing. 😢 I find myself in bed just staring at his bed or outside crying by his grave. My routine has been off to say the least. It has been a struggle but I have been true to my goals and continue to workout. I really have not been eating but I do at least get down my superfood shake. Old me would have given up on all of it and just stayed in bed. I’m proud of my progress. I’m proud of changes I have made for myself. I miss Marley so very much but I know he is happy and I need to be too!!
