Shoutout to @laurenwebb1981 absolutely crushed her training session this morning. Added weight to her squat jumps with no problem. DB jump squats will activate quads, hamstrings, glutes, core, calves and will lead to explosive power.
Why should we foam roll? 🤔🤔 It may be uncomfortable or flat out hurt but it is beneficial! 5 reasons to foam roll! 💥💥💥 1)improved flexibility and increased range of motion- we normally stretch to decrease muscle tightness before working out or playing a sport. Research shows shows that performing foam roller exercises before an activity can increase flexibility. 2)circulation- Myofascial release can help improve blood circulation by breaking up tight areas where blood flow may become restricted aka the pump 🏋️ 3)stress reduction- Foam rolling can help reduce stress post workout. Myofascial release can potentially lower cortisol levels, which is a stress hormone that can be elevated after strenuous exercise! 4)Reduce soreness- For the most part we have all experienced DOMS which stands for delayed onset muscle soreness. This muscles soreness usually sets in anywhere from 24-48 hours post workout. Well, there are studies that show foam rolling can substantially reduce the chances of you not being able to move! I'll take my chances 💪
We love how our client, Jessica Dragan, pushes herself every session. If you really want to change your body, you have to lift heavy! No, lifting heavy will not make you look bulky... Your nutrition is what controls that the most!
