Who knows the feeling?
It's been 4 months since I had surgery to repair my butterfly fracture and now I'm "doing" (more like trying) butterfly pull-ups! ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ˜‰ . I actually had been really frustrated with the slow progress in my recovery and wondering if I was too broken to ever fully fixed. But, I went in for my follow-up with my doctor last week and my bone is fully healed, other than I do have a bone scar. (Who woulda thunk you get bone scars!? ๐Ÿคท‍โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿค”). . Anyway, this got me to think of a life analogy to this experience: some things in life might break but it doesn't mean you can't recover from it. However, you will be left with a scar or a constant reminder of that break which should be looked upon as your "badge of courage". It's your evidence of your courage through recovery and your reminder to not be broken again. . Sooooo....that got deep.  But I hadn't done one of those types of posts in a while!  To make things light again - go check out my INSTAstory! So excited for some new goodies in my home gym.  Hope to try some new things with my fully healed arm!! ๐Ÿ’ช . . . . . #transformation #transformationtuesday #progress #crossfit #crossfitgirls #bikinicompetitor #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #muscles #girlswithmuscles #physicaltherapy #wod #workoutoftheday #fitnessjourney #weightlossjourney #bosslady #fitspo #fitness #igfitness #instafitness #fitfamily #fitmom #igfitmom #instafitmom #fitoverforty #selfie #latina #spartanrace
Single leg strengthening  No matter the activity that you want to perform for exercise, it’s so important to include some form of strengthening exercises on one leg. It can be as helpful in identifying deficits as addressing them. Try these on each side and see what you find!  1. Single leg overhead press - press overhead with the arm opposite the leg you are standing on. Don’t arch your back or use momentum.  2. Single leg trunk tilt - try this with or without a weight. It forces your knee into positions that many trainers or therapists may tell you to avoid. We think it’s important to strengthen your body in these positions rather than avoid them! 3. Rear foot elevated split squat - you can do this with your rear foot on a stationary object like a chair, or something less stable like the TRX/stability ball.  Get moving!  #physicaltherapy #physicaltherapynola #movementisgood #therapyisgood #runlift #thestrideshop

However, certain adjustments can be made to focus more of the work onto the quadriceps. If you take a narrower stance with the feet hip-width apart, the hips aren’t able to flex as deeply and the thighs are forced to stop at 90 degrees or less. The reduced angle of the hips forces the work onto the quads limiting the action of the hamstring and glutes.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € -โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ŒHitting the Hamstringsโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € The standard squat stance with the feet slightly wider than shoulder-width automatically focuses work onto the hamstrings. The hamstrings are activated through hip extension, meaning they’re at their most active as you straighten your legs and extend your hips. The wider your stance is, the deeper your hips will flex, therefore, exaggerating hip extension and forcing your hamstrings to activate.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € -โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € -โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ŒGlutesโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € The glutes are a tremendous source of power and strength, and if you can use their strength in a movement, you almost always should.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Take a wider stance when squatting, such as 140-150 percent of shoulder width. This allows for greater posterior displacement of the hipsโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ € Repost @evolvetrainingsystemโ € -โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #squat #squats #glutes #legday #quads #hamstrings #yoga #fitness #mobilitywod #flexibility #physicaltherapy #yogi #bodybuilding #weekendyoga #deadlift

Posted @withrepost • @beardthebestyoucanbe Part 2 Repost Challenge: Make your own โœ…โŒ video and tag me. I’ll share the best ones ใƒปใƒปใƒป What have I started? _ Well, for some it started a very important conversation. A conversation we in the fitness industry must have  _ Are we delivering quality information and education to the people who need it?  Or are we distracting people from what is truly important, and covering them up with bandaids instead of fixing serious internal dysfunctions. Either out of ignorance, or just to grow a following, collect money, and sell people hope _ There is no good or bad form, because form is dependent on our intent and application. Which will be dependent on our goals and individualized needs. Make sure your joints have the ability and capacity to achieve the outcome you desire, in whichever form you choose to train in . There is no good or bad posture, because we must train the body to be strong in all postures. Training in one posture, or a small handful of postures, is not conducive to our lifestyle or sports . An exercise can’t be functional unless the joints involved are functioning correctly, or at the level needed to effectively perform the exercise under the load that is being asked _ If we train the human body INTERNALLY we can resolve many issues, and greatly enhance our athletic ability, performance, functionality, resiliency, and longevity . But we continue to prioritize an external concept - THE exercise. As opposed to the internal environment - our joints and connective tissues, and nervous system . We continue to force this idea of “good form”, to achieve a “good posture”, all while attempting a loaded movement. Instead, we should prioritize the functionality of our joints FIRST (and often), and increase their ability and capacity to achieve these type of movements, especially under load. It’s just the wrong mindset overall, and the lack of knowledge of how to achieve this outcome is frustrating

Today I went for a job interview for a Physical Therapy Aide position. I was more nervous than usual because getting into a clinical setting without ALREADY having clinical experience is tough.. ---- I spent the morning going over the qualities the position and I had in common,  doing background research on the company and just trying to be as familiar with everything I thought they would throw my way as I could. Once I got there my nerves eased up and as soon as I opened my mouth to answer her first question it was like I didn't even have to think. Our interview lasted maybe 20min, probably less, and on my way out she said she'd be in touch as she welcomed her next applicant... ---- Within the hour I got the call extending the offer๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ It isn't glamorous pay,  but it's an invaluable experience with the ability to learn hands-on and ask questions. Im so excited and proud. My time studying up this morning definitely helped me feel more prepared and certainly came in handy for a few things,  but ultimately what I was saying were things I genuinely feel and believe in. ---- Here's to progress. Here's to stepping out of your comfort zone. Here's to going after you're goals. Im gonna be busy,  but it'll pay off in the long run. ---- End rant๐Ÿคš๐Ÿผ . . . . . . . . . #newjob#pt#physicaltherapy#ptaide#cpt#nasm#personaltrainer#alwayslearning#nextstep#healtyhbody#fitness#fitspo#fitchick#fitlife#livefit#getfit#rehab#handson#interview#nailedit#proud#wishmeluck

Want a bigger back? Train FULL range of motion.  Full Range of Motion is different for everyone.  The idea that there’s some pre defined range you should have is a good guide but a terrible rule.  We should each have our own goal in terms of mobility improvement.  However thinking we ought to be able to do a certain range of motion is a quick route to frustration and injury.  The goal, for most, ought to be living life pain free, being able to lift and move you body how you like.  If you’re try to achieve a range of motion that causes pain, you wont find more range over time.  If you are not taking advantage of your full range of motion, you’re diminishing your results.  Train the range you have, work on the range you want.  Ready to Start Training Smarter? Link in Bio
