Before and after (just the patch pic for now😂) #goruck We made it! Our cadre was awesome! Not to mention made me the first TL to lead the unit for first couple of hours. Practiced those leadership skills that is not in any way related to my leadership conference two weeks ago😂😂 nonetheless I’m glad Cadre Reno was impressed in keeping the team together! No punishments, everyone at good pace, informed and led them to move with a purpose. I only know one person well, one acquaintance and the rest were strangers, yet they followed my lead and worked as one unit. That was awesome. I learned some more about me today—delegate task, communicate, look ahead, keep an eye out, oh i also learned how to use a tourniquet, cover chest wound, assemble a gurney and carry it while someone on it, drink beer 😂 and the tunnel of ❤️ all to celebrate #stpatricksday#movewithpurpose#embracethesuck more to post! #juststrong
This. 👏🏾 Right. 👏🏾 Here. 👏🏾 This workout is SO WELL NAMED! Lol! Shout out to @brookewellss for this piece! I saw her post it months ago and snapped a pic, because I knew I wanted to try it. The barbell is deceiving and the rep scheme is out here playing games too!
Do 27 reps of all the movements. •
Then do 21 reps. •
15... then 9.
It pushed me outta my comfort zone. I knew it was gonna be real, just thought I’d move faster. 🤷🏾♂️ #Nope#EmbraceTheSuck#FitDad#RedefiningDadBod#PNP#DadAgainstDadBod
Got 2 in tonight. Do your community a solid and shovel your sidewalks. I was almost hit so many times, even in my neon orange, and had to jump into snow banks WITH MY BEAUTIFUL NEW SHOES ON! 😭 #suckitmarch#BAMRbassador#MotherRunner
Two athletes had races today, and two PRs! *****
Carla has a goal of breaking 2 hours in a half marathon and she’s dropped about 20 minutes already since mid January! Awesome job!
Joan is running a 10 mile race mid April, with a goal of just under 2:00 also. She made some big strides with this 10k race today! *****
I can’t wait to see these two continue to grow!
Happy St. Paddy’s Day and happy day #20 !
I could have skipped out on my at home workout today since I took a spin class this afternoon but I didn’t.
I’m sore from pushing myself extra hard this week.
My legs are heavy from spin class.
But you know what.
Results don’t care about that.
I’m starting to see them.
My hips & thighs are a little smaller.
I’m getting baby biceps!
My mind is clear and freaking wants this!
I’m craving more natural food vs the crap I used to.
I’m proof that ANYONE can do this.
So what excuses are you still going to give me? Give your spouse/significant other? Your kids? Your friends? Yourself?? Stop with the excuses already.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day.
It’s just a difference in how we use them & how badly we REALLY want to get healthy.
Enough BS already.
Get off the bench & into the game.
I’m waiting to put you in.
Are you ready to play?
ENDURANCE SETS 😭 .
One thing I may have neglected a bit in recent training is endurance work, mostly because it sucks, but it is very important for overall capacity.
I don’t think I often spend longer than 30-40s in a handstand so I’ve been adding in 60s+ endurance sets at the end of sessions (thanks @ulrikonhands 😐) .
To make them less boring and more challenging than normal straight holds I’ve been doing repeat rounds of straight, straddle, diamond and tuck (not a good one) on repeat. Thanks to @wbrown7 for the idea.
For those working on freestanding handstand, this can be performed on a wall to great effect as well.
A couple of sets at the end of a session is all it takes.
