MOST RECENT

Oh my gosh I finally did it, I made a (some what) stretching tutorial. People have been telling me forever to do this, but I’ve always been so nervous for some reason to do it. Personally this isn’t my everyday stretching routine, but this is what my routine looked like when I was first starting out. Stretching day 616

After more than 6 months of groin injury (still not healed completely), I finally overcome my fear of #stretching 🤸🏻‍♀️I gained #confidence after signing up to the @barre_core summer challenge which helped me improve my #bodystrength 💪🏻 Injury makes the #comeback sweeter 😁 Thanks @elysenicole001 for the studio recommendation in London 🙏🏻

USE YOUR GLUTES FOR A DEEPER GROIN STRETCH
.
I've been working more and more with active stretching techniques lately and I'm really liking them. They offer a few potential benefits over passive techniques, including working on controlling your new ranges of motion as you open them up and using reciprocal inhibition to sink deeper into your positions. So expect to see some more of these coming as I play around with new techniques.
.
🏃🏻‍♂️ Today we're looking at the groin. The groin, or adductors, can be separated into two groups, the short adductors and long adductors. The short group is high up in the groin and is best worked with the knee bent while the long group moves more down the thigh and is best worked with the knee straight.
.
The motion we want to use to open these up is abduction ↔️, or pulling the hip and knee open to the side. This technique here will use the glute to actively pull the groin open while locking the pelvis in place so we avoid compensatory motion. Try 4 to 6 reps per side with a 3 to 5 count hold and see how it opens up for you.
.
Tag a friend who needs to work their groin and share the wealth!

Last day of the #getstretchyeveryday #getstretchychallenge with a camel pose and I have a hard time with this one = fear of falling. But I get a bit further every time ❤ Thank you @actionjacquelyn @getstretchy for a great stretchy challenge ❤ Thanks to the best support group there is #PIITsquad @broken.barriers @mintelates @ieattoprocrastinate @v.andy97 @sonia_pop_pt @phases_of_a.moon @anciblogilates @caffeinerdy.yogi

Today was all about twisting. My back feels absolutely amazing now and I am quite surprised at how far I can twist. The first pose was quite hard. I did it with a pillow at first by feet, and then removed the pillow and got in and out the pose with no assistance. I am feeling rather proud right now!! And I enjoyed that my cat wanted to be apart of it all too. .

Today was about opening up the hips again and lengthening the spine. I am definitely noticing my flexibility and stability increasing. Day 15, so I am halfway through the plan. So excited to already be seeing progress. .

STRETCHING SUNDAY! 🧘🏽‍♀️ - Plantar Fasciitis: Two Simple Stretches to help Prevent and/or Relieve Pain
.
.
Most of us don’t really think about our plantar fascia until we suddenly wake up one morning with sharp pains in the heel of the foot. Plantar fasciitis (inflammation to the plantar fascia ligament) is most commonly caused by strain injury causing micro tears to the ligament as it attaches to the heel bone or other areas of tightness on the sole of the foot. .
.
Plantar fasciitis is common for runners, dancers, or those who wear high-heels on a regular basis. It can be extremely painful, but can most definitely be cured and/or prevented by making sure to stretch your calves and plantar fascia (arch of the foot). We will discuss Plantar Fasciitis more in depth later on this week, but today we wanted to share with you two simple stretches that can be done daily to help prevent and heal this common ailment.
1. Calf Stretch
2. Plantar flexion - Dorsiflexion towel stretch .
.
These exercises stretch muscles at the back of the lower leg (the calf) and the Achilles tendon. Perform these exercises 2 or 4 times a day,

After somewhat accepting this rain and then having it stop briefly once I got off work, I decided to catch some sun rays, and practice some new yoga poses. 😬 This one is called the Kapotasana or Pigeon Pose and is an asana. This pose helps the Psoas major muscle, Thorax, Abdomen, Thigh, Inguinal region, Ankle, and Throat. My ankles were sprained really badly in high school and ache at times after running so this really helped ease some tension I had built up from standing all day. This did take a couple tries and as you can see I still need some practice, as your forearms are supposed to touch the ground. But bring double jointed in my shoulders made it a bit awkward with movement. You can see it def was a bittttt painful,but like all new poses = no pain no gain! 💪🏼👊🏼😛 #yogainspiration #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #aloyogachallenge #backbend #backbends #asana #kapotasana #kapotasanavariation #kapotasanapose #pigeonpose #pigeonvariation #yogavibes #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #fitnessgirl #fitnessfun #fitnessmotivation #stretches

Sending @portcitymassage so 👏 much 👏 love! Kacey gave me such an amazing massage + cupping. My rotator cuff muscles have been feeling so tense and the cupping helped to cleanse out all the stagnant energy that had been built up from all those chaturangas. I feel so much better! Thank you so much! 🙏🕉

📍Cuando se trata de hacer ejercicio, mucha gente suele buscar mejorar su fuerza muscular, lo cual no tiene nada de malo, pero hay que tener en cuenta que la flexibilidad es tan importante como la fuerza en el cuerpo humano. Ese es probablemente uno de los errores más comunes que la gente comete cuando se trata de hacer ejercicio: no prestar atención a su capacidad de movilidad.. De esta manera, darle especial atención a la flexibilidad de tu cuerpo tiene una gran cantidad de beneficios y la mejor manera de aumentarla es con un buen estiramiento antes y después de entrenar.🤔🤔
📌Antes de un entrenamiento, el mejor tipo de estiramiento que uno puede hacer es un estiramiento dinámico. Este tipo de estiramiento consiste en movimientos de aislamiento, normalmente con bandas elásticas o simplemente con peso corporal. El propósito de un estiramiento dinámico consiste en preparar los músculos y las articulaciones para el trabajo duro que se viene en el entrenamiento, pero no mediante el sostenimiento de posiciones (como en un estiramiento estático), sino que utiliza diferentes movimientos para enfocarse en la movilidad de los músculos. 💪🏼🤛🏼
📌Una vez que tu entrenamiento haya finalizado, el mejor tipo de estiramiento que puedes realizar es un estiramiento estático, el cual consiste básicamente en mantener distintas posiciones durante cortos períodos de tiempo hasta el punto de sentir un poco de molestia muscular. Este tipo de estiramiento ayuda bastante a los músculos y a las articulaciones no solo en su relajación después de entrenar, sino que también mejora y acelera su recuperación y además, disminuye el ritmo cardiaco así como la actividad cerebral. De esta manera, el cuerpo logra relajarse correctamente después de en un entrenamiento, lo que permite una notoria mejoría en el sueño así como en la salud de sus huesos.😱👏🏼
