TRICEPS โ€ข Squatting & rowing & pressing is fun but sometimes a girl just want a good old fashioned #bodybuilding burn ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ โ€ข Triceps extensions are probably part of your home or gym routine, maybe with a dumbbell or a band as shown. โ€ข TIPS ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ in an overhead position, your shoulders have to be flexible, so if your ribs thrust up & your low back arches and you cannot correct it, work your triceps in a different position while you improve your core strength & shoulder #mobility (a cable press down and dumbbell kickback are other options) ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ try to point your elbow the same direction as your eyes, not out to the side, for the best angle ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ let the elbow bend deeply, so your triceps s-t-r-e-t-c-h as you lower the weight, for best results! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ Do you love working #triceps as much as we do? ๐Ÿ˜˜ xo

There is no one to compare yourself to, except yourself. โœจ The best motivation? Just trying to make yourself better -- a tiny bit better -- every day. โœจ #BBstrong #wholemama

PUSH โ€ข Honestly, my heart was breaking a little bit just digging up this photo to share with you... This photo was taken just an hour or two after Little C was born, when the biggies were woken & brought into our room to meet their baby sister for the first time ๐Ÿ’• โ€ข I am eternally grateful to my mother, sister, husband and our midwives for their support in my 3 home births as I laboured -- and pushed -- for my little ones. ๐Ÿ’• โ€ข As Little C's 3rd birthday approaches this summer, I'm feeling more aware than ever that I will never again carry, birth or nurse a baby. It is a razor-like but poignant sorrow. ๐Ÿ’• โ€ข That's it. Sometimes there's no bright side except to be grateful for this very moment and for the power of memory without dwelling too often in the past. It hurts if you stay too long. ๐Ÿ’• #MomBodLove #homebirth

You LIFT all the time. Find a coach or trainer who respects your awesome strength and teaches you how to move your body properly, in AND out of the gym. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’• #motherhoodismycardio #danjohn #BBstrong #wholemama ๐Ÿ“ท: @perform_better via @skofit ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

QUICKIE โ€ข Today while my biggies were playing & then in a swim lesson, I had some fun playing around with 2 of my fave pieces of exercise equipment: the #TRX and the #rowingmachine (which used to actually be called an ergometer when I started in this biz one million years ago... ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿผ) โ€ข So for Day 9 of #MomBodLove you've got a photo of my feet next to the pool, after my HANDS helped me get in an awesome quick workout ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ โ€ข Check out my Instastory to see what I did exactly ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผโ€ข Did you work out today?

SQUAT โ€ข Squatting is a normal daily movement, part of getting down & up from the floor, picking up our littles (and all their sh*t...), and even just getting in & out of a chair or sofa! โ€ข I โค๏ธ this hilarious cue from @momma_strong: aim your lady parts over the hole you are creating between your legs, or over the chair you are sitting on! โ€ข We tend to speak a lot about "bum back" when cueing #squats but when it comes to moving your hips and understanding how your #pelvicfloor health relates to your squat form, this cue makes total sense! โ€ข The next time you squat, inhale as you reach your hooha back & ask yourself "Is my hooha over the hole?" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿนโ€ข Seriously, though, if you're thinking of following up your weekend with a fast, cleanse or some other form of self-deprivation, just stop. โ€ข Has it worked in the past? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” โ€ข If swinging between strict self-deprivation & reckless bingeing worked, wouldn't it have worked by now? โ€ข How about picking yourself up and giving yourself a big old hug with healthful, delicious foods you love, some movement that makes you feel alive and well, and some mood-boosting fresh air? ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ That's my plan for today - who's with me? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’• xo
