MOST RECENT

Current body update๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป
No crazing flexing.
No abs.
Not shredded.
No hugely twisted booty pose.
Lots of stretch marks.
Have gained around 5 lbs (I think)
*
I do however truly appreciate my body. Even through it's flaws.
We are always so quick to pick at all of the things we hate about ourselves when looking in the mirror.
Pick one thing that you really like about yourself, and say it out loud. Might seem silly to begin with but it can really help you to see the good bits ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ

Morning check

โœ–GLUTE ACTIVATION โœ–
โฉSWIPEโฉ

1) RB Lateral walks
2) RB Glute Bridges
3) RB Adductors
5) Lying Clams
6) Hip Abduction

RB=resistance bands (mine are from @d8fitness )

I usually do 3-4 sets of each excercise for 20-30 reps. These exercises are amazing for strengthening the glutes & helping you get more depth in your squats. I gaurentee you will feel the burn ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ .

๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ๐Ÿ”ฝ Performing a Kettlebell Swing
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold the kettlebell handle in both hands. Keep your weight spread evenly through your heels and forefoot. Bend your knees, descend into a quarter squat and push your hips back. Lean forward and lower the weight between your knees. Keeping your arms straight, your shoulders back and without rounding your back, thrust your hips forward and swing the kettlebell up to your preferred height. Allow gravity to pull the kettlebell back down as you push your butt back, bend your knees, and get ready for another swing.

Increased Power
Kettlebell swings are initiated with a powerful hip thrust using your glutes and hamstring muscles. In weight lifting, these muscles are, in conjunction with your lower back, referred to as your โ€œpower zoneโ€ as they are strongly involved in virtually all lifting, running and jumping movements. Using a heavy kettlebell for low rep sets will improve your muscular power.

Increased Muscular Endurance
Muscular endurance is your ability to generate sub maximal muscular contractions for extended periods of time. Moderate to high reps using a light kettlebell, combined with short rests, will help improve your muscular endurance. Your glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, lower back, shoulders, arms and core muscles are all worked effectively during kettlebell swings.

ncreased Anaerobic Capacity
You can perform interval training using kettlebell swings. Interval training is an effective way to improve your anaerobic fitness. Swing a moderate to heavy weight kettlebell for 30 to 90 seconds, rest for a moment or two and then repeat for as many sets as are desired. Your breathing rate and heart rate will accelerate dramatically and your muscles will burn as lactic acid is produced--the byproduct of anaerobic exercise.

Some single leg balance tasks this morning Laura here making it look easy! With the importance of having good ankle , foot and hip stability we tend to forget about balance and put much more effort put into getting stronger and not looking after out joints. Movements like these will develop incredible strength in the hips something crucial as we get older. Adding a half cup of water and using a straight arm with flat palm made this more difficult and also better craic . #gymvideos #gymlife #balance #movement #movebetter #gymclass #keepitfun #fitness #gymmotivation #ukfitfam #singlelegstretch #core #strength

Good afternoon,
*
I have gone from posting everyday to posting once every two weeks, if even.... ๐Ÿ™ƒ #yikes
*
Although I am training away and eating at maintenance for now, my head just doesnโ€™t seem to be in the whole instagram posting mind frame. This may derive from the fact that my life at the moment consists of going to the library, training in the evening possibly, three to four days a week for now, and eating pretty boring foods ๐Ÿ˜‚
*
With all that said I do really hope to get back posting regularly in two weeks when college is finished! I also plan on starting a cutting phase then but for now I am genuinely shocked at my ability to eat at maintenance, train, take things back to basics and be happy ๐Ÿ˜€ *
It is ok to have other priorities at times but I am excited to have a goal inside the gym again too ๐Ÿ”ช
*
Other than that I hope everyone else is lit etc x
*
Until next time ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ
