Advanced Adductor Mobility!
This post is more geared toward those who already have pretty great range, but are looking to take that strength to the next level.
Please don't push the body beyond it's comfortable limits. Every body is made and shaped a little differently, especially within the hip socket, so don't force your body to go places it's not meant to be.
Restrictions can be felt from:
🔹Compression: felt at end range closing joint positions. Harder end-feel with bony restrictions. .
🔹 Tension: soft tissue restrictions felt on the lengthening side of a stretch. Can be gently lengthened and released over time.
🔹 Proportion: leg length to torso ratio is very important when determining ability and ease of poses. Example: it's easier for someone with a longer torso and shorter legs to press up (shorter lever arm) than someone with long legs and a shorter torso (longer lever arm). KEY POINT
Stop comparing yourself to someone else who can touch their head to the butt or easily come into lotus pose. Extreme ranges are not meant to be for every body type. Start focusing on understanding your own body type and exploring the various ranges and movements your body is can move through.
Bottom line: #justmove & #stopcomparing
Tag someone you think might be ready to step their straddle game up 😉
Did I manage to make the most of today's layover? You know it!Here's a clip of one of today's super sets 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 After my overnight flight I had a 4 hour layover and I wanted to MOVE (I had another 11+ hours of sitting on a ✈️ ahead of me) so bodyweight exercises & power yoga were in order!
Super set shown in this clip: ✅ Reverse lunge to plyo skip
✅ Push-up to wall walk-ups (which admittedly are a heck of a lot harder than usual after 7+ hours of an overnight flight 👹😴) #funwithfitness#workoutanywhere#airportworkout#frankfurt#jetlag#layover
In today’s culture, people spend HOURS a day stagnant, not moving, and worst of all sitting. The era of desk jobs has made people become become much less active. That’s why I use standing desks at school and asked for one for my birthday to have at my apt😂 So why do I stand?.
-Decrease back pain, standing has helped my SI pain drastically and can help with tight hip flexors
-You can move! I am always moving my feet, bending my legs, going into Founders pose, deep squat etc. —Add a constant stimuli to the intrinsic foot muscles. Shoes has weakened many of our foot muscles but standing (no shoes) allows you to use those muscles otherwise neglected
-More attentive: I am much more attentive when I can stand
These are just a few reasons I choose to stand when I can! Movement is life. Don’t become victim to a stagnant society.
⭐️ BEFORE & AFTER
After @tiffanydacre gave birth to an incredible little lady she got straight to work!

6am #beach#flow 🐾🙏🐾
Practicing basics, working on #handstands , and a #cartwheel literally came out of nowhere after one Crab Reach so I had a go at doing a few reps. I could never cartwheel in school and have never tried to do one since so that was cool, clunky as it was 😂 Starting #capoeira in January so will be tidying them up...In the meantime, just feels good to move and grateful for being healthy and able to do so in such a beautiful place 🙌 @animalflowofficial ▫️
Don't beat yourself up over those Christmas cookies that can actually lead you to giving up all together. Have a cookie or two and really enjoy it - - then make some more healthy choices. Food should make us happy and Nourish our bodies, not lead us to torture ourselves.
Exploring movement under different conditions..range of motion, stability ..motor control and body awareness.
🦀 Crab Reach 🦀 with offset feet elevation ↕️
I was thinking how to improve form and mechanics in CRAB REACH ; how to go deeper into T-rotation and lateral flexion parts of the CR, which I think I lack.
I felt greater tension in my shoulder and T-spine - had to stabilyze more body weight since my foot was elevated (foot on the ground and contralateral arm held most of my weight). It forces me for better activation posterior muscles for stabilizing an asymmetrical hip and pelvic position, and for better shoulder stability under load. Think it could be helpful for improving asymmetries too (noticed my left shoulder lack stability).
Who’s wants to transcend into the other side with a timed workout challenge?! 🙋🏻♀️
I went to the other side today. And I came back to a sweat puddle and an awesome feeling of accomplishment. Thanks @fitnessunderground.us for this challenge! Check out her page for the modifications. Here ya go:
5 x wall walks
10 x 2 leg jacks 1 jump knee tucks
15 x jump squat to donkey kick holds
20 x pistol squat (10 per leg)
25 x oblique Vups (25 each side)
30 x knee to elbow pushups
35 x crab kicks
40 x lateral jump lunges
45 x bear lateral kicks
50 x swimmers
The best thing is you get to reverse the order after the swimmers and make your way back to the wall walks! 😱
I finished in 19:53 and had to modify a lot cuz everything was on fire.
I challenge @maixpie @kaz_zar @sport.ler @ebonny_fowler @angelvee82 @ammy_ra and everyone else looking for a bodyweight workout to try this and post your time!!

No workout (yet) or much else for this momma. I've got a stage 5 teething clinger and a boy that stayed home from school because he didn't feel well. . Middle child is taking full advantage of this lazy day 😂. . Soaking up all the snuggles I can and taking care of my littles ❤️
