Apparently I'm too flexible 😂 found out that most of my random back pains have always been from being too flexible and working out too much without stabilization exercises 🙄 hopefully working on that helps! 🤞🏽
#smotd - challenge your back and core with this off set renegade row core combo...good news, you only need one dumbbell so if you lost half a set, you're still in luck! #noexcuses 🔹very important to keep your hips square and continue to stabilize the shoulder (keep it depressed and retracted) of the row side while performing the plank tap and knee across the body. This is truly the case for both shoulders throughout, but be even more aware of the shoulder of the dumbbell side as this is the side where stabilization is challenged more. 🔹part of the challenge here is the test of stability with one hand on the weight, the other on the floor. This asks a lot of your core. Work hard not to rock (goal is anti-rotation) and pause in each position to feel the engagement. 🔹make sure your glutes are engaged throughout. 🔹12-15 reps each side, 3 sets. Choose a weight that's challenging but doable. I'm using 15lbs here. . . #thestokedmethod#stoked#stokedfit#workforit#goals#challenge#core#back#arms#stabilization#strength#fitspo#instafit#inspiration#motivation#girlswithmuscle#trainer#athlete#inspo#fitnessfriday
Resisted adduction and abduction Incredible way to achieve firing of the VMO muscle and adductor muscles in the inner and outer thigh. This allows for stabilization against multi directional movements, alleviating unwanted stress on the patella to reduce common knee related injuries. Stop the leg press and leg extension for aesthetics and join the revolution to become #functionalstrong💪 . . .
