A very compound lift (multiple joints working in unison). •
Several factors affecting weight performed (ex. Height, training age, mobility, form, etc...)
As you can see 2 different angles which tell you a lot of things. I see people performing squats with a ton of weight and very developed legs, but 💩 form. (Not to say my form is a 10, but it's not terrible)
As impressive as the weight being lifted is for those big social media accounts, you have to consider how long you plan on squatting, 1-10 years or 20+ years 🤔 and are you actually competing in powerlifting/weightlifting 🤔 (and normally they have good form)
I say this because it's only a matter of time until squatting with bad form takes a complete toll on your body. It being your knees, back, hips, etc...
I'm not saying you won't get injured squatting correctly, but it sure reduces your chances. 😊
In the 2nd video 2nd rep you can tell my compensation by bar path (it makes a a reverse C at the top). My hips lifted earlier forcing more of a hinge, that puts more load on the hamstrings, and low back •
Great post by @soheefit so I had to repost. Especially the week after Thanksgiving and during the holidays I know I can relate! 🙌🏽😅
Most of us have probably had at least once incident of eating way, WAY too much. 🤢🤮The good news is you can always come back from a nutrition whoopsie. •
You DO want to drink plenty of water, get right back on track, have a stellar workout (extra calories = rocket fuel!), and learn from your mistake so you can do better. Some nonjudgmental reflection can provide insight as to why and how the overeating occurred, and then you can come up with a preventative strategy moving forward. For example, if you cleaned off an entire bag of chips because you waited too long between meals, you could make sure you keep a snack on hand in the future to help tide you over so you can make more nutritious choices. 💛
You DON'T want to beat yourself up about it and then punish yourself with extreme cardio and calorie restriction. This will lead you down a very slippery slope. Overeating followed by over-restriction eventually begets more overeating. It's not fun bouncing from one extreme to the other, and you'll spend your days either immensely bloated and uncomfortable or weak and depleted.
Practice compassion and gently nudge yourself back in the right direction. Remember, nothing with nutrition is ever unfixable!
