I've had chest x-rays, cardio stress tests, EKG's and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don't drink. I don't smoke. I don't do drugs. I don't have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.
If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really pissed 😠
Today is Sadie's 3rd Birthday!!!! We are so lucky and grateful that Sadie, her mom (@sar1487) and aunty chose Cally's Teas to celebrate her special day! Swipe left to see the most adorable video of Sadie talking about her birthday plans! 😍😍🎉🐎😄
Before getting pregnant, I wore size 13-14 jeans and now at 6 weeks postpartum I bought my first pair of size 8-9 jeans 😊👌 not at my goal weight, but this is the smallest I've been in years and I'm slowly getting my confidence back!
Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out. ----------------------------------------------------
In other news, once I was shopping in Costco and some guy came up to me and asked to take a picture of my calves... I let him. If you ever come across those pics on some shady website let me know and we'll split the royalties. Thanks #striveforcostcopics
Good morning!🌟Sharing some helpful tips from @teamjuicy99 ⬇️
Planking 👉🏻 the good, the bad and the downright dangerous.
The plank is a commonly used core exercise. Used correctly it can be BRILLIANT at developing overall tension throughout the body and enabling deep core activation.
However, it's also the exercise I probably see done wrong the most.
So, how do we fix it?
Traditional planks have been progressed to increase the time of the hold, i.e last week I could hold it for 30 seconds, now I can do 40. But... some argue the core was not meant to fire for extended periods of time in isolation.
Rather, the deep and superficial muscles of our core need to have the ability to fire with maximal force repeatedly over time.
So, to properly set up for a plank 👉🏻 set elbows directly underneath shoulders with hands either clasped or flat to the floor. Create tension in your upper body by feeling as though you're pulling your shoulder blades down, then keeping a neutral spine extend your legs to be around hip width apart. Focus on squeezing your glutes as much as possible, this will really help develop absolute tension in this movement. In addition almost feel as though you're tucking your pelvis under to avoid anterior pelvic tilt.
Once in this position, breathe deeply and focus on increasing tension with each breath.
TAG a friend who might find this useful and now try working a proper plank into your core training!
