No matter what back extension machine you choose, the primary muscle group involved is the erector spinae. Made up of three muscles -- the iliocostalis lumborum, longissimus thoracis and spinalis -- the erector spinae runs down the entire length of your spine, all the way from your neck to your lower back. #evolve#strong#womenshealth#piedmontave#oaklandtrainer trainer pictured: @swedishflygirl
#tacfittuesday Train smarter not harder. How the saying hits as I get older is rough. If I only was taught this way of training 10 years ago. If only I knew what I know now. Shit. I don't dwell to much to be honest.
My injuries and lack of exploration led me to where I am NOW. All of my pain and suffering due to my physical injuries are blessings and lessons. I am still exploring my way to movement freedom again. What a journey. Keep at it wherever you are.
I've never been that genuinely scared before. Like the real deal, if this collapses, it will not be a good ending type of situation. I've also never have felt such a presence in the present before. I have, but this was even greater, my body and life were on the line. There is only the next step. Move. Pull. Axe plunge. Step. Step. Breathe. Mantra. Move. Wedge in. Press. Wiggle. Sit. Breathe. Look down. Get scared. Look up. Breathe. Commit. Axe plunge. Pull. Step step. Look up, signal says it's good. Trust him. Mantra. Move.
#tbt to backingpacking Yosemite with the homie. This was my first planned by me trip- everything went smooooth.....wait... except for my friend almost cutting his hand to the bone with a knife... well most of it was smooth 😂😳 This ones just a reminder to keep nature close. Nature can heal and calm your spirit. All this stuff we deal with in this world...job, kids, family, health, fitness, hobbies, $, providing food and shelter, and not to mention figuring out who we are. It is a lot to navigate. I know this well. But nature for me is one of my sources for rejuvenation and peace. It brings me back to a state of joy. I feel connected to this spinning rock when I'm out there. Remember we are still creatures. We are not above this world because of our advances in technology. We must remember our connection to the earth and our relationship to it.
I have dealt with skin issues since I was a kid. I would have the most intense burning/itching/scaly skin around my neck/eyelids/elbow pits/knees and also a bunch of small round red scab like things all over my body. I had to put this steroid cream on these spots when it got real bad. It seemed to make it go away temporarily and then it would come right back.
I am a little stunned it took me so long to figure out it all was stemming from my diet and lifestyle. MOST OF IT CAME FROM MY DIET. Now when I eat shitty food (bad oils/sugar/processed flour/milk/beer/alcohol) and pair it with less sleep... boom. It starts to show its signs...then I have to reel it back in and actively push that shit out of my body through the tools I have been building (breathe/ice baths/meditation)
I rubbed steroid cream for YEARS around my neck where so many glands are, around my eyes, and so many places. I did not have to do this. I simply needed a change in the way I ate? Fuckin aye. If you're dealing with skin issues or any other body issue. Take a hard honest look at what you put into your body before rubbing shit on it or taking things to "fix" the issue. You just might be able to work through it with a holistic approach. Not all things need a cream or pill like our system likes to imply.
