Hey everybody. Hip to the Bosu to help support a little side stride. Capture the core and hips one rep at a time. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
Pump it out, one step at a time!
Always trying to side step responsibility and push things away. Sound familiar? I hope not! Showing up today for my wife, colleagues, clients, family and friends may take some extra effort every now and then but we shouldn't seek to avoid people or push them away with our expectations and attitude. This is not a learn to love moment. It is taking a moment to learn to recognize the how and why I think it would be easier to side-step and push away. Usually fear pops up. Sometimes annoyance because people aren't doing what I would rather them do or how I would rather them do it.
That's on me. And for me it is a daily necessity to get in motion and take action. So if I am thinking about side-stepping and pushing away why not make to my benefit! Band up the feet for extra glute activation and pick up a plate...of weight and get to stepping and pressing. With each step, back and forth keep the core tight breathing through the motions not with the rep. Steady in and steady out.
If we take action to improve our physical well being our mental well being has a better chance of staying positive. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
Wrist pain. I get it. I don't have it but some folks I train do.
To aid in their comfort but not let up on some foundation core, shoulder and back strength exercises we made a minor adjustment. We stabilize our forearm / elbow on a Rogue box or a bench. I have found that putting that attention on the forearm, not digging the elbow in, and keeping the shoulder above the elbow has been most beneficial.
So, stable up and give those dumbbells a row with these Pirate Row Planks.
Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
