A conversation I frequently have with my clients is a chat about what they are doing post work out🤔 ⁣
⁣
I like to use the analogy that our body is like a car 🚘 when we are the gym we burn fuel ⛽️⁣
⁣
Afterwards it is important to fuel our body with a quality protein source and carbohydrate source so that we can put fuel back into the car to repair/build tissue -> 💪🏽 muscle ⁣
⁣
Post work out I use a hydrolyzed whey + fast digesting carb source so that I am able to put the ⛽️ back into the 🚘 (aka my body) since I don’t normally have a meal immediately after the gym I prioritize getting in high quality pro pro + carbs. ⁣
⁣
My current staple is Magical Charms flavored Phormula-1 + a 1/2 scoop of ignition 🤤⁣
⁣
When I tell you it taste like the bottom of a bowl of lucky charms I am not lying to you 😤⁣
⁣
DM me if you have questions about what to do after your training sessions to secure the gains and ensure you’re recovering! 🤗

SYMMETRY doesn’t exist. We all have a dominant side and minor strength & muscle imbalances. It’s normal.
.
HOWEVER, If your training is highly unbalanced, you  could be feeding into these natural asymmetries and putting yourself at risk of injury. It’s very common amongst gym goers and a dominant reason why aches, pains, stiff joints and tight muscles are ‘the norm’.
.
3️⃣ things you can do to prevent this happening:
.
1️⃣ Base your training on movement patterns NOT individual muscle groups.
.
📝 Squat, Hinge, Lunge/Split Stance, Upper Push, Upper Pull (Horizontal & Vertical plane).
.
Exercises from these categories should form the base of your training. Isolation work should be sprinkled in secondary to this.
.
2️⃣ Do plenty of core, hip and shoulder stability work.
.
📝 For the core, don’t forget any of the 3 primary categories: anti-extension, anti-lateral flexion, anti-rotations. For the shoulders, go to town on external rotation work, lower trap work and scapula / rotator cuff stability drills. For the hips, do some work for your hip flexors, lateral glutes (abductors) and inside leg (adductors) ... these muscles tend to get neglected.
.
3️⃣ Program unilateral and offset loading periodically.
.
📝 If you’re married to the Barbell, you may be favoring your dominant side. Using Dumbbells forces both sides of your body to work independently. Program lots of single leg and single arm exercises like split squats, lateral lunges, single arm press and single arm rows. Alternating presses are fantastic also. Offset loading is another method that provides unique challenges to one side of the body.

Hi friends! Posts like this are always hard for me because they feel the most vulnerable. If you have been following along with my health journey you know it’s been a long process for me. I am so grateful to be at the point now where the things I used to struggle with are now habits. I get asked often how I find the time and it really comes down to me deciding it is non negotiable. I promise you will progress if you just show up! It’s officially been six months since we launched @stitch.fitness and it has been such a rewarding experience! Receiving messages about your progress has been amazing ♥️ We have decided to celebrate by doing a flash promo this weekend. You can get 🔟 days free at www.stitchfitness.com with code FLASH10 🙌🏼 It is only active for the first 30 users so grab a friend and get signed up ASAP 👏🏻 If you are starting from scratch like I did I recommend the Total Transformation program. If you want a program that will be extremely challenging check out the Elite Fat Burn. The other programs are incredible too and all are included in the free trial. Home programs as well as gym programs plus a NEW one launching soon! Are you ready to start?! 🙌🏼

If you feel low-back discomfort while doing the overhead press, it is worth looking into the position of your pelvis. If your pelvis tilts anteriorly (see Donald Duck butt position on the left video), you arch your back more and excessively stress the low-back while doing overhead presses.
-
A simple way to fix an arched back during the overhead press is by squeezing your glutes and engaging your abs. This provides better support for your low-back and helps you maintain a stable upper body. Swipe left to see a visual that shows what I mean by

-
now, this does not mean that any rounding of the low-back is inherently "bad". it is normal to maintain the natural curve of the spine (as you see in the video). but try to limit your back from rounding much more than that to protect your low-back.

NO SPRING RESISTANCE 🔥🔥🔥 This exercise is inspired by @seanbergarapilates and his amazing - REFORMER ~ No Springs Pilates - Workbook - I can highly recommend 💥
—————————————————
👌💪 I have added some of my own variations to his original exercise in the manual. After trial and testing I decided to take my arms overhead to create opposition of the shins and knees lengthening forward and also I felt less tendency to compensate with my shoulders and neck.  My variation is lifting and lowering with neutral pelvis and and then spinal articulation. 🔸 Then a push and pull all the way out without lowering down. 💥Don’t be deceived by how easy this looks - it’s a killer 🔥🔥🔥
The second video is the #shoulderbridge on the heels close to the footbar 🔥
*
So often we are misled by thinking heavier  springs - the more challenging the movement - but in many exercises the opposite is true - this is an intense hamstring and glute workout and the focus is to control eccentric and concentric contraction - simultaneously the muscles of the anterior hip and knee joint are lengthened.  The only way to go here is slow and controlled - 👌 Even my video has been sped up slightly ⚠️

🧖Massage Monday 🧖‍♀️ Have you ever heard of fascial stretching therapy?  This particular fascial stretch opens up the chest and rounded shoulders. It’s perfect for those working desk jobs and all of us combating texting postures! 
Fascial stretch therapy is a unique system of therapy that dramatically improves your flexibility by lengthening your fascia. During this type of massage tension in the tissue and around the joints is released to restore and improve range of movement, often relieving pain from past injuries.

#mondaymotivation my friends. This is simply ketogenic lifestyle and 6 days in the gym. 💪🏽No supplements, no 28 day plans, no pill 💊 or potions 🤷🏻‍♀️. I dreaded of the thought of working out this time last year. But the amazing feeling I have everyday after the gym is life changing!  The scale has gone up but to see changes in my body makes me feel like that’s muscle 💪🏽. Thanks for all of your support!!

🦵Lateral Lunge with Weights🦵
.
If you think about your day-to-day activities, you probably notice that you either are moving forward (walking) or moving backwards (sitting). Unless you're shuffling to an empty spot on a crowded train, we rarely move side to side
. 
When we spend the majority of our day moving in the sagittal plane, we should be training our frontal plane
.
Lateral lunges are important to train the hip stabilizers such as the glue medius while working your quads at a different angle of approach. What's fun about the lateral lunge is that it's already challenging without weights but once your master that, there are other variations you can do such as the one demonstrated here!
. 
By adding weights to your upper torso, you force yourself into a more upright posture which is great for those who feel discomfort whenever they are sitting or standing or day. Not only are you working your hip stabilizers but you are also working your shoulders and spinal stabilizers as well!
.

Faces of Brave Endeavors introduces Daphne Johnson.

Daphne is a vet in Hood River and enjoys mtn biking and backcountry skiing in her free time. This is what she had to say after 1 month of BE strength training: “For me, Bekah’s Brave Endeavors workouts became invaluable about 1 month after starting. I was riding a local trail that is full of tight uphill switchbacks - my nemesis. As long as I’ve ridden, I have had nothing but fear, anxiety and hatred (yes hatred) toward uphill switchbacks. I’d go so far as to not ride some of my most favorite trails if I had to ride tight uphill switchbacks to get to them. This is bad, right?! Anyway, I was feeling strong after a month on Bekah’s program, and decided to ride this trail. My goal was to make it around more switchbacks than I had the time before. After the first turn (a left turn!) I feel good, still full of fear and anxiety, but good. After the second, third, fourth, fifth turns, I’m shocked. Right turns, left turns, who cares? They all feel good. There is a particularly technical section that I got to and I rolled over it like butter, so smooth. In that moment, I felt all of my fear, anxiety, and most importantly, hatred just melt off me, and it all turned to gratitude - gratitude towards Bekah, towards myself, and towards this trail for pushing me to get better. The feeling was magical!” Want that magical feeling? Get started with the Brave Endeavors mtb strength training programs today! Link in profile 😃

Training update. For now I’m mostly just doing volume/hypertrophy workouts while I rehab a few persistent issues, and spend more time focusing on things outside of the gym. Still moving weight, and definitely stoked af to be in the new @barkesfitness location! If you’re near the fishers area, you really gotta come check this place out; it’s incredible!

3 Daily Exercises to Build Your Self-Discipline

1. Make Your Bed

It sounds so simple and maybe even pointless, but that is what makes it so effective, not only does it have the mental benefit of completing your first task but it builds your mental fortitude to force yourself to do things you do not want to.

Don’t just take it from me, listen to this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgzLzbd-zT4

2.Cold Showers Everyday

OK, here is where we turn it up a notch, an icy-cold blast of water is not what anyone wants, so do it. It’s that simple just turn the water down to its coldest point, think about how cold it is going to be, and then just step in, you can turn it up after 30 seconds if you want to. Simplicity itself but it will give you the mental callouses you need to persevere!

Have a look at some of the other benefits it can provide:
https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/325725.php

3. 10 Minutes of Meditation

You’re thinking this sounds easy, but meditation is disciplining your thoughts and thinking to allow your mind to focus on one task at a time without distraction, training your mind with meditation is a powerful tool and not to be overlooked.

Bench Press Prep

A quick look at today’s pressing prep. Overall, this is a little more extensive than usual with the goal of illustrating some of my favorite strategies. At most I’ll usually use 4-5 of these.

Generally speaking, my goals are as follows:

Axial Skeletal Position
Range of Motion
Scapular Movement
Shoulder/Trunk Stability
Patterning & Acclamation
Neural Drive

🎓Tipps für Anfänger im Krafttraining🏋️‍♂️💪☝️
⠀
Ist es nicht frustrierend, monatelang ins Fitnesstudio zu gehen, ohne spür- oder sichtbare Erfolge zu erzielen?⠀
⠀
Das muss nicht sein.☝️
Denn es gibt für dieses Problem eine Lösung? ⠀
⬇️⬇️⬇️⠀
⠀
Das Zauberwort heißt progressive Belastungssteigerung (Progressive Overload).
⠀
🤓Wenn dir das nichts sagt, dann versuch ich dir das jetzt einfach zusammengefasst zu erklären.
⠀
Einfach gesagt bedeutet progressive Belastungssteigerung, dass du über die Zeit mehr leisten (bewegtes Gesamtgewicht einer Übung / Muskelgruppe steigern) musst.💪
⠀
✅Als Erstes solltest du an einer sauberen Technik im vollen Bewegungsumfang arbeiten.
Und wenn dir das bei derselben Übung im nächsten Training gelingt, dann ist das bereits eine Art von Progression.
⠀
✅Danach, dasselbe Gewicht über mehrere Gesamt-Wiederholungen bewegen (Volumen erhöhen).
⠀
✅Ein schwereres Gewicht bewegen (Intensität erhöhen).
⠀
✅Das gleiche Gewicht in der konzentrischen Phase stärker zu beschleunigen, die exzentrische Bewegung langsamer und kontrolliert gestalten.
⠀
Wenn du das Anfänger Level verlassen und im fortgeschrittenen Status bist, helfen dir Intensitätstechniken weiter.
⠀
Dazu zählen: Dropsätze, erzwungene Wiederholungen, Myoreps, Muskel vorermüden.... usw.
⠀
☝️Doch eines solltest du wissen! 
Die progressive Belastungssteigerung ist niemals linear.
⠀
☝️Als Anfänger funktioniert es noch sehr gut, sich von Woche zu Woche zu steigern.
☝️Je fortgeschrittener man wird, desto wichtiger werden Strategien bzw. Progressions Schemata zur weiteren Steigerung.
⠀
✅Doch das ist ein anderes und sehr komplexes Thema🎓😀
⠀
Wie waren deine Anfänge im Krafttraining? Hattest du einen erfolgreichen Start oder ging die ersten Monate nichts weiter?

Rowing doesn’t seem like an overly “sexy” fitness topic other than building better back muscles. However, if we think a bit bigger we can see an opportunity to build much more than just muscles of the upper body. Like so many parts of our body, our upper body strength is largely dependent on what happens at our core in real life strength. While many people feel limited by their #corestrength and look for ways to take their core out of their rowing, the truth is the better rowing exercises are about showing how to integrate the core in our rowing movements. 💪
Using the @perform_better Infinity Straps I am doing a suspended bird dog row. Unlike using a bench where it is just difficult, I am actually here engaging the ground and my hands to connect the chains of my body and using the cross patterning of the body to not just stress my upper body, but to connect the body as it is designed to work. More specifically how the shoulder works with the core and opposing hip in real life. 💪
One of my favorite parts of using the Ultimate #Sandbag is that it allows us to train angles and positions that are difficult with other tools. Additionally, the weight of the Ultimate Sandbag is all far from where we grip so the weights feel MUCH heavier than they do with other free weights. Moving from a rotational to forward step #deadlift teaches my upper body to be strong in more challenging environments and positions. 💪
Going to a #kettlebell crossover row gives me a different element than the Ultimate Sandbag. Using the Ultimate Sandbag I can create tension on the handles and help myself create some stability while moving in more complex patterns. With the #kettlebells , while I can grip tightly, I can’t create the same tension which is actually good for more advanced #strengthtraining where I am looking for more reflexive strength. When you see how our body wants to work in very integrated ways, it makes you wonder why we would want to train in isolation?!

Dominant shoulders push session🦾
Still working on that P/O but thinking about switching back to split as my routine/workouts have fell all over the place 😑 last push session was shoulder dominant, some of the workouts were as follows, ▪️Very high incline dumbell chest/shoulder press 28kg 10-12reps P/O
▪️Seated bench dumbell shoulder press (twisted roatation) first time doing this so my form wasn’t the best but will be doing this more often going foward, 10-12 reps 16kg😅
▪️Standing dumbell lateral/shoulder raises, on this paticular set did 8kg each side working that P/O 10-12 reps 
Starting to feel that loss of strengh but definately feel that extra pump on those higher reps with the lower KG weights 💪🏽 well see how this works with the split routine👍🏽

Whether it’s self improvement or to gain an advantage on your opponent, certain things MUST happen. While other things, you MUST do without.

No matter what it is, you have to be purposeful in your plan. Progress, improvement, habits and achievements do not happen on their own. They are a direct result of your actions.

🌟🌟 ARCH BODY TO HOLLOW BODY 🌟🌟 _____________________
The goal is to NOT ALLOW the arms and legs to touch the ground at any point 🎯. Hilary does a good job here, though the feet should remain in contact with each other, doing best not to separate at any point 👣🔛. You must have a decent hollow body hold and arch body hold to do these well. If either sucks, work on it 👊🏽. _____________________________
It's Monday. Most of you are dreading the start of the work week. Some are excited that in a week and a half in the U.S., you get an extended break from the work you don't enjoy 😕. I get it. I've been there. It's NOT FOREVER, unless you LET life happen to you. Life is a conglomeration of experiences that you get to choose. We've given up the ability to choose- most will go the 🏘+👼🏽+👼🏼+🚘🚖. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that if that's what truly makes you happy. But there's so much more to see, to discover, to experience out there. Please don't limit yourself. I've met families with little children climbing the Himalayas. I've met families staying in a random hostel in Central America. I've met new friends on the streets of Istanbul that I STILL am in touch with. Life is sometimes mundane, but it can also be AMAZING AF! The crazy thing is, MOST of you get to choose. Consider it a blessing. A majority of the 🌎 do not have the same options. You'll regret many things on your deathbed. Let's not add anymore 🙏🏽. Chin up. It's only Monday but you have your whole lives ahead of you 😎. Take advantage.

My Squad // Meet Jenny Wolfrom Holladay

Specializations: Ride, Strength

My JH story: Left AK in 2011 with no next step for life except a stop in New England to see family and maybe look for a job. My older brother encouraged me to visit him in JH and serendipity took over. Jackson is where I found my career, my soulmate/dog Lucy, husband, incredible friends, and my love for training (myself and others). Jackson is home.

Fitness journey: Growing up in ME, I was an athlete & loved to be outside in the woods & the mountains, whether it was skiing, hiking, or playing sports. Throughout college and after, I mountain biked and ran a few 1/2 + full marathons, but I never really pushed myself beyond the bare min. when training & hadn't been exposed to corrective and preventative strength training. After a life-changing event on my 30th bday, I made being my best self a priority. This new way of life opened my eyes to strength training + the positive results it brought to my performance as an athlete + mental & physical health. I became passionate about this way of life and wanted to share it with others. Nothing makes me happier than helping clients train to accomplish things they would have otherwise thought impossible.

When not at VIM: Keeping JH wild, open and connected. As the Dir of Advancement & Engagement at the JH Land Trust, my “day job” is to support land conservation in NW WY. I am also a strength coach at Wright Training. When not at my desk or gym, you can find me training for endurance mountain bike races, trail running in the Tetons, hiking with my dog, or rowing my fly fishing-obsessed husband down the river.

Most don’t know: I'm not a morning person. Training people gets me out of bed. If it wasn't for all my bright-eyed morning motivators, I would be up until 2 AM every night binge-watching Bachelor in Paradise (or something = as terrible). Bragging rights:
* NASM Certified Personal Trainer
* Schwinn® Indoor Cycling MPOWER™ with POWER Certification
* Triggerpoint Foam Rolling Practices
* Prenatal Certified Trainer
* American Red Cross CPR/AED Certified 👉See recent mountain bike race career highlights at Vimstrong.com

🔰A great post by @drjmike right here.

Some arch of the lower back is fine as long as the entire body stays tight. I see too many people go overboard with arching and they lose out on stability and force production because they aren’t properly driving with their hips/legs.

Press on towards your goals.... “The five S’s of sports training are: stamina, speed, strength, skill, and spirit; but the greatest of these is spirit.”– Ken Doherty
