I’m back and it fell on a shoulder day so I got these 2 for ya. (Single Arm Linear Jammers y Side Lateral to Front Raise)
1st form is most important to me while working out so as I’m gaining my muscle mass as well as my strength back, I’m working with lighter weight to keep my form where and should be. I never wanna be one of those guys in the gym just throwing around weight that’s obviously too big to get a beneficial set from so I don’t mind the lighter weight at all because as I’m flexing my muscle through the workout 10lbs definitely is quick to feel like 15 and 20 lbs the same as 25!
With form I like to keep in mind to control the negative and explode the lift so I’ll come down slowly and try to jam the weight as I’m lifting up and trust me that shit kills my muscle lol!
In the last workout with my Side Lateral to Front Raises I actually did fuck around and cheat my form/workout by trying to bounce and even using my tippy toes to try and fight through the transition from the front raise back to the side Lateral but as time progresses and I gain my strength back we’ll definitely see the control and progress with this workout! (I also paused around my 5th rep to give my muscles a second so that I could finish the last 3 totaling out to 8 reps, so if you’re in the gym tired af through a workout is for sure recommend a small break just to get through the set in a healthy manner. It’s not worth hurting yourself or tearing a muscle trying to strong arm in through lol take your time)
Some people thought I was dead. Those people are wrong. I was very ill, lost a few lbs, and here I am. Consider this #mug proof of life. Missed all you homies ✌🏻 #ballz ps yesterday was 70 degrees and today had an ice storm so that was fun. What are you guys up to?
What’s your favorite #exercise ? How often do you move? My favorite is #variety and my #weeklyexercise consists of a minimum of 5 #workouts . I love #running , @otfbrentwood, #walking#hiking#biking and #weights They all serve me and keep my body guessing! As we get older, exercise is so important to our well being and overall #healthylifestyle It keep our joints and #muscles in tip top shape.
Today was a brisk 40 minute walk at lunch. 73 degrees here in @nashvilletn and breezy. Perfect time for moving and to clear my head!
Since Mother Nature can’t make up her mind, I was stuck inside today. It was 65 at 7 this morning but by the time I was ready to run this afternoon it was 30 and sleeting. So I did a #bbg lower body workout and a #bbg arms and abs workout. 🏋🏽♀️. Go away cold weather!!
First love... can’t even explain the feeling being on stage... the rush.. the energy... the love... i don’t know the next time I’ll be on a stage again but I’ll be ready... #UDAfamily ... this pic says a lot!!
🚨 ATHLETIC CORE POST 🚨
Single Leg Tennis Ball Wall Balls
Being able to maintain balance without directly focusing on the balanced leg is one of the most difficult aspects of balance and stability!
By adding a wall-ball toss while balancing on one leg, it forces my body to both remain stable on the balancing leg, train my hand-eye coordination to throw, track, and track the tennis ball unilaterally, and keep my core engaged to remain upright when reacting to the tennis balls 🎾
Leg days are not always my favorite, but adding in circuits like this one always makes it more fun! I love using bands for more of a challenge and to switch things up! 🔥
Banded side steps to burpee
Banded jump squats
Let me know if you try it! 😘
🚨 ATHLETIC CORE POST 🚨
Blindfolded Single Leg Balance
Being able to balance requires visual, auditory, and Kinesthetic cues in order to maintain upright stability. By removing one or more of our senses, like our eye sight and being distracted by bouncing basketballs and yelling in the background 😒 you have to rely on your Kinesthetic awareness and body control to remain balanced through the movement, creating better stability when all three senses are available 🙌🏻
🚨 ATHLETIC CORE POST 🚨
Basketball Balance T’s
Being able to remain stable throughout ranges of motion involved the symmetrical contracting and lengthening of opposing muscle groups while bracing the core
Here, I am dynamically going from a standing position to a position perpendicular to the floor, stretching my hamstring and contracting my erector muscles in my back as well as my glutes on the opposite leg to form a relatively straight line - all the while engaging my core to remain balanced 💪🏻💪🏻
