For today's full body workout, I was planning on performing seated leg curls to give my hamstrings some work. Last minute, I decided to go with the dumbbell variation of the Romanian Deadlift. I feel like they really hit my hams more than any other exercise.

How to perform DB RDL:
(Revised from Bodybuilding.com)
.
1๏ธโƒฃ Begin in a standing position with a dumbbell in each hand. Ensure that your back is straight and stays that way for the duration of the exercise.
.
2๏ธโƒฃ Initiate the movement by flexing your hips, slowly pushing your butt as far back as you can. This should entail a horizontal movement of the hips, rather than a downward movement. The knees should only partially bend, and your weight should remain on your heels.
.
3๏ธโƒฃ Drive your butt back as far as you can, which should generate tension in your hamstrings as your hands approach knee level.
.
4๏ธโƒฃ When your hips cannot perform any further backward movement, pause, and return to the starting position by extending the hips.

Push-up progressions.

Working on building my upper body strength back up. Push-ups are a great movement that require shoulder strength and stability, core strength and wrist mobility. I like using these tempo push-ups to work on my strength and endurance in this position.

Start at the top of a push-up position with head inline with shoulders, hips and feet. Engage your lats to keep your elbows from flaring out. Bend your elbows to lower your body to the ground, aiming your shoulders for your hands. Keep your core engaged to keep your hips inline with the rest of your body. At the bottom position, re-engage your core and imagine pushing the ground away from you. Either push-up from your knees (easier) or your toes (harder). Start with sets of 5 and progress to 8, then 10.

SOLEUS
Named after a fish, the Soleus is found deep to the Gastrocnemius muscle. It's mostly made up of slow twitch muscle fibers and plays a major role in walking and posture.
A short or tight Soleus may be the reason why you can't dorsiflex your ankle (bring toes to the shin). This could influence your lower limb biomechanics such as how you squat.
O: Posterior Tibia and Fibula
I: Calcaneal tendon, inserting onto the Calcaneus
A: Ankle plantarflexion

I been dealing with some funky hip and glute issues for the last four months. Now that I'm down the stretch on my rehab, I've decided to get back to front squatting. Started at light weight to focus on my form and technique. Make sure to swipe right to check how my body and shin was parallel.
.
-----------------
.
Here's some info on Front vs Back squats:
.
" ... Front Squats zone in on the quads and upper back, while Back Squats focus more on the hips, glutes and lower back. Both lifts recruit all these muscles together, but the emphasis shifts from one lift to the other.
.
Muscle groups might matter to bodybuilders, but athletes should care more about movements, not muscles. That's why getting bull strong in the Front Squat or Back Squat can ramp up your on-the-field performance."- from Stack.com

Today I attempted a pr deadlift of 495. I bombed it. Even hurt my back a little, and I'm thinking to myself had I been in my former prime I would have been able to hit that no problem. I tell myself if I never fell off maybe I'd be pushing 600lbs by now. That's not true or the case, sometimes you need to go through the valley to appreciate the mountain top. And while I'm no longer in the valley or at my peak I'm enjoying my journey back to physical greatness. When I get to the top you know ill flex on the gram forreal but for now this photo is hommage to who I was and a testament to who I'll become in the gym. The progress I've made in three months is scary good. There is such a funny story about it too, however; I'm looking forward to closing out 2017 with a bang. So cheers to the women who have offered to buy me drinks now that I've put on more muscle and asks my sister permission to dance with me at the bar ๐Ÿ˜‚ and to the grandmothers in Walmart who think I look like a younger Mike Tyson. Thank you for recognizing my work and know that it goes straight to my humble head ๐Ÿ˜ˆ. I still have have a ways to go, and I will love every step of the way. Special thanks to @immortalsfightclub @dianazepeda @zackhenderson_ and @saint_gains for motivating me to work harder than I've ever worked before. There's this coach from mallard creek that I follow and he posted an august challenge and one of the requirements was to run eight miles a week. I accepted your challenge and if you see this just know that I RUN TEN, and WAKE FOREST COUGAR PRIDE. That's all guys.
Happy #musclemondays

Lifting provides me with a retreat from the outside chaos... without it there would be no balance... I wouldn't take the time out for myself... and would be completely consumed by my work and studies. Everyday that I choose to stay committed to my fitness goals is another reminder that I can.. and I will... #musclemondays are all about the Bench for me. Chest, Bis and Tris with @fit_n_2_llc and HIIT sprint intervals on the bike.#girlswholiftdoitbetter#fitnessinmyfuture#powerliftingdreams#lifestylechange#fitnessjourney#keepgoing#liftheavy#builtbysergio
