Here is a little PSA about hip flexors!
What are the hip flexors exactly?
How can I stretch them, activate them, and strengthen them?
Remember, with knowledge we become more aware...
awareness bleeds into mindfulness
mindfulness into connection
connection to coordination
and coordination to efficiency 💪
Instead of a traditional pull up bar, Jeff and I decided to use a Rock Climbing Hangboard to activate the fingers, stimulate the forearms, and bring a different dynamic into the game. Remember to always engage the core, navel to spine and control that drop into your burpee.
Ahh, the TRX band. An amazing piece of equipment for any level.
Inverted Single Leg TRX Row: Keep your lifted leg bent at a 90 degree angle, with toes activated. Find balance and stability in the standing leg, also bent 90 degrees, to achieve your inverted positioning. Keep the elbows close to the body as you row yourself up, pulling the muscles towards the midline of the spine.
Watch till the end for modifications- placing both feet on the floor for more stability!
After my accident I had to figure out how I could still move and support my body.
I believe there are many ways you can still move while recovering, you just need to learn to support the body through your movement.
Each body and each injury is different, but here are some moves I was able to do while recovering from my accident. They didn't come immediately after the accident, but when my body was ready.
Phew! That title is a mouth full! Thank goodness the move is a little more simple. Challenging our core strength and stability, as well as those shoulders and biceps, this is a multi muscle move. Keep those arms to about shoulder height for your curl. Level up by adding a second dumbbell. Lean back to the point where you feel a tension and engagement in your core that you can MAINTAIN. And of course, don't forget to breathe.
