Thought my body died last week during its crippled little flare up. I was wrong world... a heavy triple at 247.5 + 10x4 speed pulls at 195 (with 60 second rests)is the fastest route to death. I know... you are all probably questioning my mental sanity at the moment and I don't blame you, inflammation clouds my judgement. But I'm alive and my body is moving a little better this week thanks to the help of @flemingchiropractic !
HAPPY HUMP DAY FIT PEOPLE. SHOW YOUR BOOTY SOME LOVE. 40 deadlifts in less than 18 minutes is a fantastic option if you ask me🙃 #crippledwhopowerlift#humpdayshenaniganswithhannah @girlswhopowerlift
2014 vs 2016, 4kg zwaarder op de rechterfoto en ruwweg de helft van het vetpercentage uit de voorfoto. 2017 is tot dusver een jaar van stilstand. Waar ik in 2016 nog plande om dit jaar in de Classic BB categorie het podium op te stappen, ben ik nu aan het uitkijken naar de dag dat ik weer pijnvrij kan lopen en eindelijk van een eindeloze heupblessure af zal zijn. Van 14x per week trainen (2x per dag) naar 2x per 2 weken is een regressie die zowel fysiek als mentaal er vrij hard inhakt. Maar wat is een paar maanden nauwelijks wat kunnen vs een levenslange blessure? Juist, stelt geen hol voor. Soms moet je even accepteren dat je een flinke stap terug moet nemen, om weer flink vooruit te kunnen. We willen allemaal sprinten, maar uiteindelijk is een sprint nog steeds een serie van elkaar snel opvolgende kleine stappen. Probeer stappen over te slaan, of te vaak te springen, en je gaat vanzelf neer. Val te hard en je loopt nooit meer.
P.S. laten we het niet hebben over die dode fret op mijn hoofd. De Beatles zouden trots zijn.

Unfortunately, I've taken a shoulder injury which has meant I've had to take a couple of months off climbing. Don't worry, I'll be able to start training again in mid August so I can hit the grit season hard!
In the mean time, enjoy this 📸 from my latest trip to font with @mattwoodcock94 and @mattandwillsciderreviews
The past couple weeks has been a little rough for me. On Sunday, I was interrupted by some intense lower back pain, and it's ruined my week. I'm not exactly sure how it happened, but there's a good chance it's a remnant of a serious injury I had about 3.5 years ago. I've been off work since Monday with hopes to return tomorrow, but the whole situation has given me a new outlook on the fragility of our human bodies. As well as a new outlook on maintaining good mental health. The past four days has been incredibly isolating for me and it's offered a me a renewed perspective on the importance of spending time with the people you enjoy the most. From this moment forward, I will strive to take better care of myself. I hope you do too.
Athlete monitoring is inclusive of a variety of different areas of importance when it comes to optimizing athlete readiness and durability.
Elite level athletes (and youth athletes, too) are often exposed to large training/competition loads.
Just as it is important to quantify and monitor training loads, it is equally important to monitor the fatigue status of an athlete. This allows coaches, practitioners, and individuals to determine their response to the loads being imposed on them and their readiness to compete. Further, by understanding this dose-response relationship, more appropriate training, intervention, and recovery protocols can be applied.
When choosing what methods and metrics to use with your athletes, clients, or even yourself, it may be beneficial first to evaluate the efficacy of the tools and quantification methods you intend to use, and then, what the smallest worthwhile difference is.
If the methods and metrics you choose are difficult to implement and use, than they are unlikely to provide any real value.
Research has observed that the more minimally invasive, efficient, and easy the tools and assessments are, the more sensitive the measures are to fatigue. This means that keeping it simple may be a better approach to monitoring fatigue and may allow for more informed decision making when it comes to our athletes.
SWIPE ⏪⏪⏪ Reintroduction of Cupping Therapy 🙌🏼 Great treatment for muscular issues!
Cupping is beneficial for encouraging circulation and fresh bloodflow to a specific areas by using suction. This helps speed up the healing process of damaged muscles!
It can help with current or pre existing injuries, repairing scar tissue, muscular tension/tightness, circulation issues & more! 🙏🏼
Hi I'm Romeo 'The Housecat' Baker Esq.
I would like to say a humongous thank you to all you amazing hoomans for your support & donations towards my frightfully expensive operations (The human just received the bill in the post and turned rather pale!) You have all been absolutely pawsome, I never knew I was so popular! You will forever be known as 'Romeo's Angels'.
I am now back at home, the human seems to be keeping me in a cage (vets orders apparently) - so I am punishing her suitably with a fresh poo when she returns from work & kicking the litter out my tray for no reason at 5am until she wakes up.
My diaphragm is all stitched up and my pelvis back in place thanks to the amazing surgeons & nurses at the RVC Queen Mother Hospital for Animals. Providing I have no further complications (🙏🏻) and this awful haircut grows out, i should be strutting my fluffy tail again in around 8 weeks time.
All my love and best whiskers xxx
Ps. Visitations by apointment, bring dreamies.

RUNNING EVENTS ARE THE MOST JOYOUS PLACES! 10k time of 46 minutes -- and overall 20th place (females) at Victoria Park Chase the Sun 10k! If you ever need a little pick me up or need to restore your faith in humanity then I suggest running/volunteering/cheering at a running event - there are thousands and so fun!!! 🙌👍😆 #ChasetheSun#victoriapark#10k#londonrunning#RunThroughUk#personaltrainer#running
@vikashsharmadpt sent me this quote today from #BornToRun and I loved it:
"When I teach (this) technique and ask someone how it feels and they respond 'Great!', I go 'Damn!' since that means they didn't change a thing. The change should be awkward. You should go through a period were you are no longer good at doing it wrong and not yet good at doing it right. You're not only adapting your skills, but you're tissues."
Whenever I am out teaching for @rocktape I often say we need to make clients "embrace the weird" when it comes to performing and controlling movement. If it feels different it is because it is!
Load should be felt in connective tissue like muscle and tendon, NOT joints. So therefore when we utilize tape to enhance neurosensory feedback and body awareness we essentially train the body to think of maintaining tension and controlling movement in a novel way.
Kind of bummed about Djokovic announcing that he will be taking a break the rest of the year, due to elbow injury, meaning he will miss the #usopen . I hate injuries. It seems pretty much everyone gets them at some point. Djokovic has seemed invincible, Not missing a major since he played his first one at the 2005 US Open. Novak says:
“The remarkable series has come to an end. My body has its limits, and I have to respect that and be grateful for all that I have achieved so far. At the beginning of my career I was facing health issues, but during years, and with a lot of patience and dedication, I found a solution. That’s the approach I take to this situation, and I firmly believe that I will come back stronger.” My 12 year old has had to miss a couple tournaments this summer due to a shoulder injury and it's a bummer, but part of the game I guess. Best wishes to #novakdjokovic and speedy recovery! #novak#djokovic#tennispro#injury#elbowinjury#tennislife#atpworldtour#lacoste#headtennis#serbia#tennislove#tennistraining#lacostetennis#tenniselbow

#Repost @hunterfitness (@get_repost) Great post from Hunter - demonstrating the importance of spinal health.
"The pattern of disease or injury that affects any group of people is never a matter of chance. It is invariably the expression of stresses and strains to which they were exposed, a response to everything in their environment and behavior." - Calvin Wells
Videos sped up double time- which is a shame- because I've been working on making this smooth like buttah in real time. Which looks 👌🏼👌🏼.
This is actually about 15 minutes of work condensed into a 2 minute highlight reel and then sped up 2x. Wish I could have posted more. Anyways. This will have to do.
Oh my. How important this is. Not necessarily this exact haphazardly thrown together stream of movements themselves. But the *ability* to articulate your spine. Being able to segmentally control your spinal articulations leads to a greater ability of said spine to absorb forces when we move/play/impact.
Do I need to say more?
Most people- due to their lifestyles- and lack of movement- have a clunky, semi-fused, non-segmenting spine. The same people have a host of issues. Just like with any other joint we take care of, we need to regain the prerequisite mobility of the articulation.
Aka- make the spine do, what a spine should be able to do. Then go do spine things. What are spine things? Oh- just about every movement we do, ever. Hence the importance of taking care of our spine. Have I beat this horse enough yet?
You're only as old as your spine. Get on the ground and get weird like me. It's good for you.
Professional tennis is getting boring without @mariasharapova and @djokernole . I became one of their true fans since I started watching this sport. First is back but second is taking a break for a while when I was thinking about creating an Instagram Fan page in #Kazakhstan . Looking forward to hearing good news from @ktf.kz on #NADALDJOKOVIC visit to Astana.
Hoping that Nole will come back strong and in the best shape in 2018. 💪 " My body has its limits, and I have to respect that and be grateful for all that I have achieved so far.” said Djokovic.
As we age mobility in the joints and balance becomes a struggle. In this case, Speed can kill causing more damage and can destroy the confidence you have in achieving your fitness goals. Therefore, proper form and modifications in key. Don't let your limits limit you... there's a Certified Women's Specialist for that 😉#SweatAndSlay

FSP NBA: Brandon Knight 'The Unluckiest Player in the NBA' suffers torn ACL
Phoenix Suns point guard Brandon Knight tore his left ACL while playing in a pro-am game last week in Miami and will be lost for the 2017-18 NBA season.
The 25-year-old guard was picked #8 overall in the 2011 NBA Draft, but the Suns are already his third team. He hasn’t played more than 63 games in any of the past three seasons, dealing with various injuries and ailments.
After averaging a career-high 19.6 points per game two years ago with Phoenix, Knight struggled last season. He averaged only 11 points per game while shooting just under 40 percent from the field, also recording a career-low 2.4 assists per game.
Knight has been unhappy with his role and the Suns had been expected to try to trade him, a deal that would be complicated by his contract. He has three years and about $44 million left on his contract.
We call this the Total Body Oscillating Platform. 'Vibrator' for short, but due to the Marxist Doctrine unknowingly and unwillingly imposed on all peoples leading our minds astray, we avoid this terminology due to the desensitizing sexual innuendo that follows.
NFL Falcons WR Julio Jones Loses 150k Earring In Lake Hires Dive Team
All pro Wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons Jones lost the earring in Lake Lanier in Georgia after he fell off a Jet Ski. Before leaving the lake he wanted to give a valiant effort therefore he hired a dive team to recover the lost jewelry. Divers went as far as 65 feet with no luck reported WXIA-TV in Atlanta. "It's down in crevasses and nooks and crannies," Richard Pickering, one of the salvage divers said. "It's impossible , absolutely impossible." When Jones was aked if the diamond earring was worth 100,000 Jones said, "Yeah, yeah, it was worth a little bit." Jones, is most thankful he nor anyone else did not get injured as he reportss to Falcon's training camp today. "As long as I'm good, it's materialistic stuff," he told WXIA. "You can always get that kind of stuff back." An injury would be a devastating blow as Jones is in the middle of a 71 million dollar contract. #atlantafalcons#juliojones#espn#Atlanta#lakelanier#diamonds#nfl#jetski#diveteam#trainingcamp#injury#loss
NEUTRAL WRIST PUSH UP/CHATURANGA STRENGTHENING
▫️hands on weights or something where the wrist is neutral (unlike regular push ups where wrist is extended)
▫️hug elbows tight to body
▫️toes tucked or untucked (I show both)
▫️lower down slowly until shoulders are level with elbows
1️⃣Modifications (knees down in push up) allow you to build strength and create proper movement patterns
2️⃣Wrist pain in extension???
If you're like me and use your wrists a lot for things like working out, yoga, typing, writing, or if you're a hands on therapist your wrists can start to hurt over time. For me the overuse caused a sprain that created a cyst so no more yoga flows! I can't do a proper push up or plank - anything with the wrist extended.
SO I MODIFY! It can be scary to move when you're in pain. So this neutral wrist exercise recommended by my kinesio friend has been a blessing to keep up with my upper body workouts.
Modifications are a great opportunity to build strength and proper movement patterns especially before you try full push ups or chaturanga with the knees lifted. Modify modify modify!
❕always see your doctor or qualified health care practitioner before starting new exercise
Be prepared. Know what to do in case of a knee injury. Kanata Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Clinic’s “Quick Tips” for treating any ligament injury… RICE!
1. Rest: Try to keep off the injured joint for the first few days, and only do gentle range of motion exercises.
2. Ice: Wrap the injured joint in a cold pack or ice pack. Never put ice directly on your skin; instead, use a damp towel on your skin, and put the ice directly on top of this. Anything works, including ice in a bag, or a package of frozen vegetables. You can ice as often as every 2 hours, but make sure each application does not last more than 15 minutes.
3. Compression: You can gently wrap the injured joint with an elastic “tensor” type bandage. A tape job applied by your physiotherapist, or a brace, may also help to decrease swelling.
4. Elevation: When you are not walking or standing, you should elevate your injured joint. Try to get it as close to heart level as possible (if it is a knee or ankle you can lie down and put the leg up on some pillows). After any knee injury, you should see a Physiotherapist for an assessment and a full program of rehabilitation. The program will be prescribed according to your particular injury and symptoms and progressed as your symptoms decrease and your knee gets stronger.

Deaths and serious #injuries related to elevator use are still relatively rare, but still, the number of elevator incidents in Canada has steadily increased by a rate of about 14% a year. 🔹The Technical Standards and Safety Authority elevator mishap reports have revealed a number of recent gruesome and bizarre incidents. They paint a disturbing picture of #elevator use, and how it is often taken for granted on a daily basis.
Wrist positioning is key when squatting! 🔑 Why do wrists have to be straight? Remember, the bar is on your back, not in your hands. Your forearms and wrists should not be under that much stress. If you tend to see your wrists pictured on the left, try changing it up to the right position! @lu_coaching shows a perfect demonstration on how to not prevent future injuries. 💥
I've been thrown off my game by life events, a neck/shoulder injury and more. I've been very mindful and studying daily, working on myself. I'm not sure if it counts as yoga but I'm not disappointed in myself. I will get back to physical asana as soon as I can... but for now? I'll work on things that I can (sadly, I can't downward dog. I can't even look over my right shoulder... or turn my neck to the right 🤕) things that bring me joy, every day. Like the place I am currently... I took this photo last night at sunset.
