💤WORLD SLEEP DAY💤
If there’s one thing you can do to improve your health, fitness, mood/sense of wellbeing, performance and overall sexiness it’s getting adequate (and for most people this means more!) quality sleep.
Getting great sleep consistently just makes everything better and it also makes it more likely that you’ll make better food choices and exercise! It’s win-win-win-win.
So in honour of #WorldSleepDay2018 , Bodyfirst Nutritionist @brianohaonghusa gives his favourite tips for getting a better night’s sleep.
We go into it in a lot more depth on our blog if you fancy some light bed-time reading 😁
1) Minimise artificial light exposure in the evening time
2) Sleep in a cave
3) Get regular exercise
4) Get the app Sleep Cycle
5) Have a wind-down routine before bed
6) Similar to the previous one - avoid very stimulating activities before bed
7) Go to bed and get up roughly at the same time
8) Set yourself a personalised cut-off point for caffeine
9) Have a carbohydrate and protein-rich meal
10) Consider using supplements
Check out www.bodyfirst.ie/blog as we go into these points in more detail 🤓
After working through a couple of sets at 130kg and feeling good I decided to step it up a little.
Battled through a couple of reps at 140kg.....wobbly but getting back up near where I was.
It was a fun evening of work, three levels of reformer helping everyone improve with each session.. hope everyone’s feeling stronger and longer 🤗 I even managed to get my own session in too beforehand which is always a bonus!

Today we are looking at the TUCK! Check out our video and we also wrote a blog post about it so visit our website for more info. So what is a tuck?
You engage your core, roll your hips back, keeping your last rib and the tip of your hip in the same line, dropping your tailbone to the floor and finding neutral alignment, stacking your shoulders over your hips and your ribs over your hips. What about standing at the barre on your highest tip toes? Engaging your core and dropping your tailbone to the floor avoids an arch in your lower back and allows you to find stronger balance and work deeper into your thighs, taking the stress out of your low back.
Think about a forearm plank - in this position, your lower back can arch excessively so by slightly tucking your hips and engaging your core more, you take any unnecessary stress out of the lower back and align your spine in neutral.
We also tuck as an exercise - a small range of motion where we move the hips from neutral to slightly forward to back to neutral. This helps to strengthen the muscle, increases your heart rate during exercise and improves joint mobility. When you focus on ‘where the tuck is coming from’ i.e. using your core muscles and your glutes to roll your hips back instead of just rocking your pelvis back and forth, you create a stronger connection with your core muscles as you work on activating your deeper abdominal muscles which help to stabilise and support your low back and spine.
Your teacher might sometimes correct your ‘overtuck’ - an almost slouched position in your lower back which then often leads to a rounded upper back (think in chair position, especially when you start to get tired). A correct tuck is one which engages your core effectively, supporting your spine while you shake your sticky socks off!
If you follow our Instagram story, you would have seen we made these a few weeks ago.
