Banded Kick Backs 🍑 . Alright ladies & gents! This is Coach Fani! Let’s talk booty gains! . Starting in a bear crawl position or you can place your knee on the floor for more stability. Here we’re using a band, holding it with both of our hand on top and place it around the bottom of our foot. . Next, we will kick our foot back, extending it all the way making sure our knee is locked out and our toes are flexed. . Note: We don’t want to hyper-extend our back by kick up too high. Try to keep you leg parallel to the ground. Squeeze the glute at the top and bring it back to starting position :) . I incorporated this exercise for our 6:30 PM class last night for a sweet #glute burnout 🔥🍑 @fitnesswfani . #strengthandconditioning#strengthtraining#legdayworkout#coretraining
Variaciones en sentadillas!!! En @evolutionprojectfitness _ Que tal, aquí @alvostro 👈 Te doy un consejo rápido sobre la alineación de la barra durante las sentadillas! 🔹️En las fotos de arriba, hay tres variaciones de sentadillas diferentes: la barra frontal, la barra de la barra alta, y la barra baja. 🔹️Todos ellos tienen beneficios ligeramente diferentes y técnicas muy diferentes, y ninguno es mejor que el otro. Sin embargo, una constante sigue siendo la misma: cualquiera que sea la variación que elijas, la barra debe estar alineada con tu pie, para lograr un equilibrio y una eficiencia óptimos. 🔹️Es por eso que no hay una "mejor" ; sólo hay la mejor variación de sentadillas para ti! Si tienes tobillos ajustados, podrías tener que estar en una posición más dominante con la barra baja en sentadillas porque tus tobillos no pueden avanzar hasta el momento. 👉O, tal vez tu espalda inferior no se siente bien cuando se inclina hacia adelante, así que un poco de sentadillas con barra siente genial, pero una posición muy vertical de Sentadilla podría no ser muy cómoda . Así que, no te preocupes si una cierta variación no funciona para ti, solo trabaja el que se adapte a tu cuerpo! 🔹️Esto obviamente no se aplica si quieres competir en un deporte de fuerza específica como el powerlifting o el levantamiento olímpico que requiere una técnica de sentadillas específicas, pero si no, el consejo de arriba debería funcionar bastante bien! - Espero que este post te haya servido...compártelo con tus amigos Saludos Funcionales 👋 @evolutionprojectfitness 🖤 #tenerife#gimnasiofuncional

TRAINING THE FASCIAL LINES 🧠💪🧠💪🧠💪🧠💪🧠💪🧠💪. . BACKHAND + FOREHAND DROP-STEP LUNGE with slow controlled return. 🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪 ✔️ Notice the knee, foot and hands all take the longest route of travel possible . ✔️ This amplifies the load onto the body and builds strong mobility . . ✔️ Keep the hands separated for most muscle work and highest brain involvement ✔️ The “drop step” opens up the hips and lands the foot 45 degrees behind the start position. . ✔️ Get long (stride) and low (hips) which widens mobility and is the least stable finish position, again, amplifying strength demands. . ✔️ Meticulous training = significant greater brain and body benefits. Be present and aware - focus - and enjoy solving the puzzle of winning each rep.
Are lateral lunges or Cossack squats, as they are also referred to, an exercise you’re overlooking? They are especially beneficial for women and load the hip joint in a more challenging way than day to day movement. Hip fractures become more common as we age and most are caused by falling sideways. This serious injury is associated with a high risk of mortality and can severely impact quality of life. It stands to reason that we need to train and strengthen single leg sideways loading as part of our preventive health approach to bone health. Alongside other resistance training, impact work, and dietary approaches to ensure adequate intake of Vit D and calcium, which are all part of the picture. These lateral lunges and variations on Cossack squats build strength in the various muscles that make up the legs, glutes and core. Experiment with the depth working body weight only to begin with. Flexibility may restrict range of movement but the exercise does also assist flexibility and is especially good for promoting dynamic flexibility in the hamstrings and groin #laterallunges#cossacksquat#hipfracture#osteoporosis#bonehealth#legstrength#glutes#hamstrings#quads#corestability#midlifewomen#menopause#fitnesseducation#personaltrainer#bognorregis

Do you feel fulfilled? - It's easy to become complacent in life. We get caught up in our everyday routine, most of which being the rat race. Wake up, go to work, with little time for yourself. A lot of us in fact live for the weekends. - Does this sound like you? I get it. I've been there. - 1st thing.. you're not alone. Most of us still feel unfulfilled, but it's about ALWAYS seeking your fulfillment. - What are your passions? What makes you happy? Do you have faith? Where do you want your destination to be? What's your motivation? - It's about actively thinking these things, and putting action into your thoughts. Otherwise, it is easy to become complacent. You will never think these proactive thoughts, and you will stay stagnent in the situation you're in. Feeling unhappy, and wondering is this really what life will be? - We are not trees. We aren't stuck. If you want to get out of your situation .... MOVE. - Time isn't on your side, but your energy that you put in is. Make it worth it. Don't take this life for granted. 🤗❤.

I'm sharing my epic fail with you today. The one I was talking about last week? First side is my "problem" side. Second side is "supposed" to be my "strong" side. Think again. 🙄 - Good thing is that I've been working on it and I've actually managed to at least get my knee off the ground. Jeez. 😏 - Thank you to @carsonclaycalhoun for the challenge! Keep'em coming! 😎 - #legstrength#quads#glutes#squats#lunges#stouffvilleyogalife

Regular leg training with different exercises builds muscle mass, strength, increases endurance and even vertical jump but commonly people ask, which is better ? SQUAT OR LUNGE ? which do you prefer ? Lunges and squats mimic functional movements such as – walking, running, going up the stairs, standing up from sitting - and they can help you keep joints healthy and prevent injuries. Both exercises are equally important and should be incorporated into your workouts. With squats, less balance is required during the movement, while lunges require a lot of balance, the stabilising (gluteus medius) muscles have to work more (2 x times) to provide the support for the leg and body. For The LUNGE: Choose an appropriate weight and place the barbell across your back. Step forward with your right foot and sink into a lunge, so both legs are bent with your back knee as close to the floor as possible. Drive yourself back up and repeat, then change sides. The point of the exercises is to place more demand on the forward leg and then push back up through the foot. Make sure your knees are not going inward. The front foot should support the weight on the heel, not the toes. #lunges#musclebuilding#buildmuscle#legday#legstrength#strength#musclemass#exercise#fitness#privatetraining#marbella#spain#puertobanus#mtkgym

Started this set with a sick phone toss 📱💨 4th set of a “4x6”, but miscounted set 4 (stopped at rep 5)... Think I’ve been weightlifting for a little over 2 years, and seriously training only a little over a year now.
There are 3 common mistakes when performing a Bulgarian Split Squat (BSS), don’t keep making them! — 1️⃣ KNEE FLEXION (BENDING OF THE KNEE) When performing a BSS it’s important to bend your leg an appropriate amount. Most commonly people tend to keep the leg of their rear elevated foot far too straight. Which results in your center of gravity being forced forward and promotes you driving through your toes rather than your mid-foot. • That being said, it is also possible to bend your knee too much; too much knee flexion will force your center of gravity too far back and make it difficult to drive through your foot. — 2️⃣ TORSO ANGLE (HOW FAR YOUR UPPER BODY LEANS) By angling your torso slightly forward during your BSS you ensure that your center of gravity remains right over your plant foot. • When your torso hinges too far forward your center of gravity tracks forwards, ultimately promoting a rounded back and difficulty driving through your foot. — 3️⃣ STANCE WIDTH (HOW FAR YOUR FEET ARE APART) When your stance is very narrow your decrease the stability of your base. Additionally, to get depth you're forced to go through a significant amount of knee flexion with preventing you from using your back leg in conjunction with your front leg during your BSS. • If you can flex your knee and touch the bench, that is a surefire way to determine your stance is too narrow. • If your leg has to be entirely straight to reach the bench then your stance is too wide. • A large exaggerated step is typically a good stance width to appropriately perform a BSS with the good form. — #bulgariansplitsquats#splitsquats#squats#squat#squatbooty#squatsbooty#squatsquatsquat#legs#legsfordays#legsworkout#legstrength#squatting#squatform#thigh#thighs#booty🍑 #bootyfordays#bootybootybooty#glutes#gluteworkout#glutesworkout#exercise#exerciseroutine#training#exercises#workout#workoutroutine#demovideo#evathletics
It's not ideal to try and find peace of mind in external places, it needs to come from within, however working on external goals in somewhere you consider a happy place is an important part of the solution. Part of my external goals is to be able to look in the mirror and be proud of the body I can see (as proud as I am of the face I see). In a way yes it does conform to the beauty standards society enforces, which I am opposed to, but in another way there's no other activity which is as beneficial to my mental health, it gives me a goal to work towards, it's better for my physical health, and ultimately I would actually like to have a partner who's attracted to me (unconscious biases are a thing I'm afraid, we're all indoctrinated by the shit we get shoved down our throats by the mass marketing machine).
One of the concerns people have when they come to AcroYoga is around leg strength. In part 2 of our leg strength video (please go to our Facebook page to view it and part 1) we give a couple of ways to do the classic Single Leg Squat whilst building extra Hip Flexor strength too. Pro Tip: If you can do these, you probably have all the leg strength you need to do AcroYoga with somebody your own size.
