🎇Truth Chronicles: Episode 4🎆 .
Oftentimes in social media, we are only shown the best: the best angles, lighting, pictures, vacation destinations and so on.
These 'Truth Chronicles' are here to remind you that no one is perfect, everyone is human & it's time to be real about it.
Here's episode 4 ⬇️ .
➡️I never thought I'd actually post something like this.
Primarily because I thought everyone realized... EVERY PERSON WITH ABS CAN DO THIS 😆
That's right, the abdominal muscles can be manipulated and revealed numerous different ways by various breathing technique and flexing/posing.
But when breathing out and totally relaxing your core you can cause your stomach to protrude like so.
In fact, if you don't know how to do this, there's a good chance you take very shallow breaths & need to learn how to breathe from your stomach! .
➡️I keep my abs flexed at least 50-60% of the day.
Having talked about breathing, I do walk around most the day with my core tight.
For 1, this looks more aesthetically pleasing with a shirt off 😜
For 2, flexing the abs constantly is a great way to strengthen the core, alleviate lower back pain and generate good posture.
Keeping a tight lower back, core & shoulders slightly retracted has done wonders for previous injuries, pain and my overall posture .
➡️Having abs won't make you happy 🙃
As I mentioned, everyone with abs don't look the way they do in pictures 24/7.
Sometimes after eating you can get bloated or via water retention look "softer" and less defined.
But regardless, abs just like the physical body are non permanent and ever changing.
It's great to strive for betterment of oneself, whether that be physical, spiritual or life goals; but attaining one or the other is not going to finally bring you satisfaction.
If you want abs, do it for yourself! Not because you think others will deem you a more worthy human being because of it.
Do it to challenge yourself, to learn and to grow as a person.
Enjoy the process and journey... each little step that you must take to get further down the path.
That's where joy comes from: the journey, not the destination!
