#Imbalances

MOST RECENT

Fixing imbalances. We all have them. Some more subtle than others. But most of us have an arm that’s stronger than the other or a leg that’s weaker than the other.
Single-leg and single-arm movements are a great way to prevent injury, strengthen muscles and better your balance.
.
.
Here are a few of my favorites. Since I’ve been incorporating them I’ve seen my weaknesses balance out more. This allows me to continue lifting heavier weight safely. 💪🏼
.
.
•RDL to row
•clean to lunge
.
.
Start with light weight to get the movements down. And take it slow!
.
.
Let me know if you try it!

Let's talk #serotonin.... 🌻Serotonin is the neurotransmitter found in our brain that triggers #feelings of wellbeing and happiness 😊☀️ It also helps to reduce our #appetite after eating. 🌻The majority of serotonin is actually produced in our #digestive tract! Approximately 90% of it!!! 😳 🌻An unhealthy gut can't make the right amount of serotonin and this causes mood #imbalances and impaired bowel motility.
🌻If you have problems with sad or #anxious #feelings, it's likely that the problem is in your #GUT and not in your head. Trust me, I know! I used to take medications for this!
🌻You actually need Serotonin to make MELATONIN which is needed to #sleep.

Google the "brain-gut connection", "gut-brain axis" "gut-sleep connection". Pretty interesting stuff! ...Science 🤓💛 Your #health and more importantly your #moods matters!
A balanced body is a beautiful thing! 💕💕

❤️I'm going to be totally honest here. You can't cover up puffiness, body #imbalances, and the visual results of bad #guthealth with #makeup or pricey skin creams. Just NOT going to work❗ The #1 thing you should be focused on is your #health from the INSIDE out when it comes to your body and beauty. #fact 💪🏼Your body NEEDS #supplementation and #tools to fight against the toxins, chemicals, and additives we are surrounded with daily. I cannot talk about the significance of your gut health enough. #secondbrain 😀If you want to feel fantastic, beat all forms of annoying stomach issues, get rid of the puffiness, and #crave healthy foods instead of junk, stop covering up the problems. Get to the root cause and get relief and quit looking for a #quickfix. 🧐Focus on...
-Daily #body balance and detoxification
-GUT HEALTH & proper #supplements -#Nutrient absorption
-Blood sugar balance
-#Exercise 😍That's where it's at and that's why I LOVE the Triplex combo so much. It addresses all of these issues and is easily incorporated into a normal daily routine. ⚖️Side note for the skeptics: These results are the product of #HEALTH, not numbers on a #scale. When you focus on the inside, your outside shows it❗ 😱 Do you see significant differences in the 3 pictures❓ Would you believe me if i told you that there was no weight loss between the Dec 2017 photo and the Feb 2018 photo? Is it your turn yet?
If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired let's talk❗ Give me 60-90 days to make a believer out of you. #guthealth #Healthy #NonScaleVictory #plungeintohealthy #Healthybody #HealthyMind #Wellness #Probiotics #HealthLifestyle #Plexusgramma #TakeCareOfYou

TFL = Tensor Fascia Lata (aka: bugger of a hip flexor!)🤕
.

The TFL makes up one muscle in the group of hip flexor muscles that can wreak havoc on your hips and knees.😮
.

15% of the #TFL attaches to your ITBand and helps flex the hip. (the other 85% of the ITBand attaches to the glute medius).
.👍 It does not take up much real estate on the pelvis but as a hip flexor, it can create tension on the ITBand thus creating an upward pull of the band on the outside of the knee and fibula, and a concomitant downward pull of the crest of the pelvis.⚠️
.

This muscle can be felt as a cramp in the outer, front part of the #pelvis (approximately where your front pocket is).
.

It will often spasm up if something is not properly balanced in the hip/pelvis complex. An overactive TFL usually can be the result of an under-active hip extensor group (glute max, low back, hamstrings, etc...)
.

Stretching the hip flexor group and self massaging the muscle can help temporarily.✅
.

Finding the solution means realizing what is deficient that is making this muscle SO hyperactive:
. ▶️Are there any imbalances right - left, front - back?
▶️How is hip flexion achieved?
▶️How is hip extension realized?
▶️Any past injuries potentially creating this overuse?
▶️Is weight bearing compromised due to structural leg / foot issues?
.

Once questions such as these can be answered, then an Action Plan can be created to help absolve the #imbalances and let the TFL calm down once and for all. :)

Meet my copper singing bowl!

Singing bowls are a powerful spiritual tool for mindfulness, deep meditation, stillness, intuition and creative thinking!

Everything is energy, frequency and vibration. Sound is a vibration and the tones emitted from singing bowls restores vibratory frequencies within our energetic body and also sing beautifully to every single cell in our physical body and said to even restore and heal 'physiological and medical' disorders.

Singing bowls are also a powerful tool for restoring imbalances in our emotional and spiritual well-being. The tones help calm the mind in times of stress, anxiety and depression or even over-thinking, simply by training brain waves to synchronise with the tones and sounds of the bowl and brings about a peaceful and balanced sense of well-being.

I've had this wonderful bowl in my possession almost a year and it's one of the most harmonious and mind-calming spiritual tools I have.

Interestingly enough, I did intend on posting a demonstration of the tones the singing bowls emit on here just to demonstrate how beautiful the tones are, but unfortunately the tones were not received by my phone!

Anyway, it truly is amazing and is highly recommended.

With Love.

💢IMBALANCE & INSTABILITY💢.
-
People are often unsure if they have any or how they occur. By explains this it’ll give you an insight into the importance of stability and strength around a joint.
-
Instability creates weakness and therefor performance efficiency drops. In order to perform we need to be strong and move efficiently.
-
There’s no quick fix and only a couple of sessions with a PT isn’t going to iron them out.
-
Over time instabilities cause postural issues. Strengthening areas around the joints will naturally pull the body into better alignment, thus reducing the chances of injury.
-
When someone complains of an injury, the weakness in that particular area is usually caused through one of the planes or movement the joint is responsible for.
-
People will always focus on their strengths rather than weaknesses. It’s something all of us are guilty of even PTs and professional athletes.

I'm back!! 🙌 After finding out yesterday, that the root of my recent hip pain issues is due to a twisted pelvis, I was super keen to get in and start my Physio #homework this afternoon. After stretching and releasing, it was time to see where I was at with my weighttraining.

After a good week off, I was more than surprised that I actually went up in weights lifted in ALL exercises!! (How does that happen 🤔) Infact, I felt Super strong both physically and mentally!! It's amazing how the body responds after a short rest!!
Still feeling sore and knotty throughout my back, but sucked it up and just got on with it. It's not gonna fix itself!! There's still life in this ole girl. What doesn't kill ya makes you stronger!! 💪

Totally doing as I am told today and focusing on the job not whats around me. Active Recovery. Stability Work. Core Work. #gettingitdone #gettinginventive #imbalances #exercisecorrection #fitter #stronger #better #focused #focusedtraining #bands #bandworkout #bosu #singleleg #listen #learn #getpipfit
