Good Morning Everyone! 😊 Here's a quick video of an exercise I did this morning. All it entails is JUMP-SQUAT-PULSE 🔥🔥. Pulsing movements are great for really isolating specific muscles. In this case I'm really exerting the most out of my lower body muscles: quads, hamstrings, thighs, calves and glutes. Also as you can see the range of motion is very minimal because I am holding alot tension(good tension) in my legs. This is a really muscle engaging workout for beginners because no matter how many reps and sets do you but if you hold this form throughout you will definitely feel the burn.
Happy Hump Day !😘
Have you seen the paper challenge going around? This is the best one I’ve seen yet!!
Try picking up a folded piece of paper off the ground, with your mouth, on one leg.
Most people don’t use such a small piece of paper like the one seen here! Crazy right?
Posted this on my story yesterday, and was asked the question: "Why the fancy arms?". I'd personally argue that my arms don't look too fancy here, but regardless, I thought I'd share my thoughts on the matter.
The rationale behind the fancy arms are:
1. Habit - my subconscious habits outweigh my conscious thoughts (perhaps even choices). I would believe the same applies to most people. Even those we choose deify.
2. Looking for ease.
My goal with any movement, is that as soon as I'm able to perform it, I want to learn how to do it with as much ease and under as many conditions as possible. What comes easy is done more often, and what you can do in more situations than one allows you to integrate movement into your life (as opposed to allowing fitness/movement/yoga/prancercise dictate your lifestyle). Just like with the feet in a handstand, the position of my arms can make or break any given position. I do not know for certain exactly where my arms should be, so instead of being preemptive amd attempting to create the perfect position, I instead try to be receptive.
In other words: I try not to make it look like anything, but choose instead to look for something. And that thing is ease. (Pro tip: Jackson 5 makes everything easier).
