The FREE #move2improve challenge started today and people are LEARNING SO MUCH 😍
Even just with the jump rope!!! 😱
Because when we learn how to make exercises more efficient and learn WHY you’re even doing it, you are able to build a more resilient body again injury, pain and optimize your movement!!! 🔥👊

Just like I tell my clients, I'm going to over exaggerate the things I see that could go “wrong” in an exercise.
Though nothing may be “wrong” with your movement, you can certainly learn how to make movements more efficient and effective to avoid compensations and build a resilient and strong body!
❌ Elbows Wide Push-ups: To force wide elbows, we have to forcefully abduct the arms and internally rotate while you increase load pressing down and up 🙈 OUCH! This mimics shoulder impingement! Meaning that the head of the humerus could be jamming into the shoulder blade during the push-up and lead to pain.
ALSO, notice my wrists from the front 😱 My elbow has to dive over my wrist. This causes added stress into a group of ligaments known as the Traingular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) and can lead to tears and injury.
❌ Cervical hyperextension: it can fire up that neck and increase tightness/tension
🔥 Core stability!! You have a cute bum. Stop trying to stick it out more. Squeeze that sucker in!! Think of holding a penny between those cheeks and SQUEEZE!
✅ Ideally: thumbs in line with the nipple line. Arms fall closer to the side to follow scapular motion. That just means, the elbows will naturally fall at about a 30 degree angle to the shoulder blades. Tuck the chin up and stare at the ground. Squeeze the ribs down and together, abs and ass tight 🍑 Keep pressure into the WHOLE HAND. Knuckles pressing into the ground. Drop to the knees if needed or place your hands on a higher surface.
Hope you join us this week to keep learning!!
The ending: that was my wonderful camera man's idea ☺️
