There's nothing like pushing yourself to the point where there's no anxiety, stress, or worries, only the task at hand😁

Slowly building up my #Popeye arm with @jennamarierd 💪🏾. Just as I get ready to leave we start hitting our stride😅. Still so happy to get in so much one arm work recently 😁

It doesn't matter how hard you push yourself, having friends around who think of ways to push you didn't even consider is invaluable😁

I've been training knots/2-on-1 nonstop and it's been paying off as I start to get a sense of where I need to be. I suggested we try hopping to knot from regular not really thinking @dchaws would say "yes" when he did it became our mission and it felt so good to get success! Perfect last day in Sheep Meadow before I head out to train with @acroarmy next weekend😁!

I do handstands to cross-train and play, but sometimes if I'm consistent I can create. Progress feels impossible but seeing how @acro_md goes through periods of frustration and happiness while progressing all the same I know that despite how good or bad the moment feels, consistency breeds results😁

#TBT to one of my happiest acrobatic moments😁. I love it because it was not easy but every attempt we learned something and got a little bit closer. We communicated through every wall we hit. I love working with people like @acro.rascal who are both immensely talented but also willing to grind out the things that don't come quickly. I can't wait to find more moments like this😁

Repping them out with @dchaws , we got two and thought the jump to three would be easy😂 @femi.olagoke joins us for the celebration😁

Me and the ground have a pretty solid relationship, but sometimes even I fly. First time inlocating to shoulders and I wouldn't think of flying it on anyone I didn't trust as much as @abe.froman.acro 😁

I've built up a solid community of training partners, teachers, and friends in New York but I'm so excited to head out to California to train with @acroarmy for five weeks. It's a massive opportunity to grow in my perspective and ability😁

Bicep tendon tears, especially at the elbow are surprisingly rare overall but increasingly commonplace in partner acrobatics, specifically the bases. One of the reasons for this seems to be lack of cross training to counteract all the pushing of acrobatics and even more pushing if you cross-train with handstands. In an effort to offset both extremes like bicep tendon tears and smaller things like poor posture and wrist pain I try to make pulling a main and regimented part of my time in the gym. Because I'm more successful and dedicated when I have goals I've starting working on one arm pull-up progressions like mixed grip pull ups while gradually taking fingers away from the overhanded hand. Whether or not I get a one arm chin up I've at least done some work to balance out and prep my body😁

There's nothing that could make me happier than mixing together acrobatics and lifting😁 .
