Hooked my mom up w some new training equipment and started coaching her on how to get that muscle mass and bone density up! 💪😃 ❤️ 💯
✔ Everlast Power Brackets ✔ Sturdy yet light, easy on space, and adjustable in height, these power brackets can help seniors like my mom work on her assisted squats, assisted lunges, and inverted rows 👍 .
✔ Everlast Smart FIT Jump Rope ✔ Light weight w soft handles and adjustable in length, this rope comes w an app that tracks skips, time, kcals burned, and exercise history. I use this w my mom for her energy systems development, practicing footwork patterns to stay sharp, and for accountability at a distance (mom lives in Brea, I live in Redondo Beach)👍 .
✔ SKLZ / EXOS 8 lb. Trainer Medicine Ball ✔ The trainer series of equipment from SKLZ / EXOS is perfect for novices and seniors training at home because they have small pictures of exercises printed on them, making it easy to remember how to perform a few fundamental movements correctly. This 8 lb. med ball is a nice size and shape for training rotational (transverse plane) movements and developing core strength 👍

Had a blast skiing in Wisconsin this weekend! Friday night through Sunday I got lots of ski time and even went down some black diamonds! Soooo glad my sickness decided to kick the curb just in time for the trip so I was able to fully enjoy it. Rest day today, then it’s full force in to my next prep and training program! 😍
Hamstring physioball bridge series: this is a great strengthening exercise for the glutes and hamstrings.
1️⃣: Keep your toes facing up toward the ceiling (don't let them flare out).Engage core and glutes, and drive your heels down as you bridge up. Breathe in, then out as you bridge up.
2️⃣: At the top of bridge, breathe in again and as you exhale kick one leg up and then down. Try to keep hips high and as stable as possible. Repeat with opposite side.
Today starts week two of 6:30 AM workouts, with my alarm going off at 5:50 AM.
My end goal is to get up at 5 and actually start my workout at 5:45, so that I'm done and headed to the shower by 7! It gives me 30 minutes to digest my thyroid meds before eating and enough time to cook and eat my preworkout meal and drink my energize, before actually heading down (or outside) to my gym.
If your goal is to do early morning workouts, but you struggle to actually wake up, don't force yourself to do it all at once.
Make a gradual change. First, try just getting up 30 minutes earlier, letting your body adjust to the new time. Every few days, move the alarm back 5 minutes, until you have enough time to get the workout complete.
When we head West, from Eastern time, this transition is actual SUPER easy. Lol It's the coming back that challenges me again.
Are your workouts in the morning, afternoon or evening?
Leg day from a couple weeks back 💪🏼 straight leg deadlifts, jumping lunges, reverse lunges and sumo deadlifts to name a few exercise we did #nasm#cpt#pes#Bootcamp#rockmma#groupon @2boyzzmom @lilitopa40 @x_ilianap @prosperamama @_noemss_ @tiffany_caragiulo
::MOBILITY MONDAY:: FIX THAT POOR POSTURE
Poor posture can be caused by a lot of different factors. Lifestyle, overuse, and injury can all be contributors. So here are some drills to fight back your bad posture.
First, we work on releasing all the muscles that are actively rotating your shoulders forward. I used a softball but feel free to use whatever torture device you have available on your pec major, minor, biceps brachii, and lats.
Next we stretch those muscles out. I use the pull up bar hang bc it tends to stretch all this muscles at once. I’m all about saving time where I can. Make sure you don’t relax your shoulders and don’t put all your body weight onto it. I kept my feet on the ground for the most part. Focus on lowering the rib cage.
Lastly, we want to strengthen the muscles in the upper back that aren’t working properly. Use a small light band, form important here, we don’t want to use momentum or arch the lower back.
Feel free to do this before workouts and on your recovery days. #revcoaching#mobilitymondays#strengthcoach#strengthandconditioning#movebetter#strongback#goodposture#nsca#cscs#nasm#ces

Feed the baby and read the book.... Knowledge is power and this book has so much good stuff about Ketogenic eating.... if your interested at all in Keto I highly recommend it. Full of facts and information from Doctors that approve this way of eating.
Keto Clarity by Jimmy Moore
Whatever way you choose to feed your body is up to you... but make sure you research the hell out of it first because the proof is in the science!!! #ketoclarity#keto#ketogenic#pruvit#fatfueled#weightloss#personaltrainer#nasm#nasmcertified
Pulled some weight today!
Sumo Deadlifts: 80 kilos for sets of 6
Hip Thrusts: 100 kilos for sets of 6
Haven't done sumo deads in ??? months and it felt heavy today, but fun! 😄
Also pretty happy with being able to go up in weight on the hip thrusts without compromising form, and still hold at the top.
Finished the workout with some isolation work for glutes and hamstrings 😊
I have no idea why the quality is so grainy. Anyway, pulled 225 today and i didnt struggle as much as i expected. I went for a second rep and my butt cramped half way up. Soon i will be in the 250 club. Although 225 may not be impressive, i used to be extremely weak due to hardly eating and not getting exercise. So seeing myself go from a skinny fat girl who could barely do 25 body weight squats to now squatting 175 pounds for reps, i can say i am proud of progress and i hope to soon compete at my first powerlifting meet. I am giving myself 6 months. Its something most people wont understand, but i want to be able to say "i did it" and see my potential. My new goal in life is just that. Potential. How strong can i be, how fast can i be, learn something every day, study every day, make something every day, help someone every day, thank god as much as i can every day, and show it in how i live the life he gave me. Even of it is just building small victories daily, eventually you will see your life as a whole as "victorious". #powerlift#powerlifting#beastmode#lift#weightlifting#trainer#personaltrainer#nasm#fitness#girlswholift
So a year ago today i started on this journey and it all came to a magnificent conclusion today. All the stress, studying and memorizing theories, phases and zone of training. I am excited to finally I am a certified professional trainer!!!!! Thank you to everyone for support! I am excited to see what God has next for me. #nasm#nasmcpt#nasmcertified
After doing manual work (cupping, Graston, or Soft tissue massage/mobilization), I typically have the patient perform exercises and activities to reeducate and reinforce the movement and/or area that was reset with the manual work. Here are two exercises I use to reinforce and reeducate ankle dorsiflexion.
Demo'ed: by @beeperez3, the future DPT going to @udelaware
1️⃣: 1/2 kneeling posterior TCJ mobilization with a heavy band
2️⃣: 1/2 kneeling knee to toe with dowel
🎓: Keep heel down as you lunge forward. Put the dowel between second and third toes.
