Vorbereitung auf ein Mobility Coaching ☝🏻 Eine Sache, über die in der Szene rund um Entrepreneurship nicht viele reden: Eingeschränkte Beweglichkeit und Verspannungen durch das permanente Sitzen am Rechner. Besonders, weil ich zusätzlich noch Softwareentwickler bin bin ich sicherlich stärker gefährdet. Gesteht euch ein, dass euer Körper nicht alles aushalten kann und Ausgleiche braucht! Sonst werdet ihr später mit Sicherheit den Preis bezahlen..
Lifted with my husband yesterday and these are the back exercises we did. I hit about 12-15 reps 3-4 sets. 30-45 second rest between sets. @alexspinoso_md

May the force ✨ (of friendship) be with you.
Worked through some humble pie yesterday training back with mahhh girls @brittanylauzon & @shelbywillbe.
Haven’t focused on the Pendlay Rows in a hot minute. Swipe to watch me work through proper form and execution.
VIDEO 1️⃣ just flat out too heavy 🙅🏽♀️ for traditional overhand grip for me. My back lifts during the concentric portion of the movement far too much. There is more of a “jerk” to pull the weight from the floor.
VIDEO 2️⃣ okay let’s attempt and underhand grip here. BC I’m training with little-miss-who-can-lift-a-house (@brittanylauzon ) so maybe if I can get away with these big wheels we can not have to unrack so much between sets.
HA, still no go. Fatigue has set in. So while and underhand grip would technically be easier with more bicep recruitment. The issues seen in VIDEO 1 are still present here.
VIDEO 3️⃣ your girl had to drop to bitty wheels because 3 attempts heavy with improper form left me rocked. But I was adamant about getting my issshh together with this movement. I knocked out 12+ reps here, kept my back locked down, and drove my elbows past my midline for every contraction 👍🏽🎉.
While I love chasing some PRs right now I also firmly believe it’s NEVER how much you lift but how WELL you lift it.
What movements can you work to improve on?! Let me know 😉 I’ll hold ya accountable.
I also encourage y’all to take videos like this so you can see how well you move through various working loads. Even if you never post them they are valuable tools, Promise!
May the force be with you all on this beautiful Monday! And check out my first IG live story In maybe a year 🤷🏽♀️, that’d be nice 😊
Lose count, lose limits, lose excuses, lose your mind. ——————————-
Back after an injury and about two weeks off. Didn’t let anyone know, didn’t need any sympathy nor excuses. These days my reasons are my own. Priority shift. We must always adapt and overcome. ————————————-
I did what was necessary to recover in the shortest amount of time. On the way to our goals shit happens, you must be absolutely ready to handle anything thrown at you if you want long term success and continued improvement. .
There are some things I can no longer do, I will adjust my training, adapt my strengths and work my weaknesses. The likely result will be even a better result. Forced growth is sometimes the most beneficial. ————————————
By any means necessary. ———————————-
This is why I have zero sympathy for fucking excuses. Level the fuck up.

How to build your own cable row machine? Most important is to find something to fix your feet on! So i used a step and for extra weight i borrowed a pin from another cable machine and fixed a 10kg plate!
I usually row with 70kgx10x4 but today i could only do 60kgx15x4 (;
Dont let your available machines define your workout! If something doesnt work, MAKE IT WORK :D
Not sure how much/if at all I've progressed on my back/shoulders/general upper body. ..But it's definitely been a focus over the last few weeks! Hopefully this can be a starting point and I can use this as a reference for uLTiMaTe GaiNzZ
Benjakiti Park, a spec of green amongst Sukhumvit’s high rise hotels and office blocks, is one of Bangkok’s most popular parks, offering a haven for joggers, cyclists and anyone in need of a quick escape from the big bad city.The park is dominated by a sizeable lake, and the two separate lanes around the perimeter have been designed specifically for segregated cycling and jogging.The water’s edge is also nicely framed by some pretty, well-maintained plant life and colourful flowers adding to the tranquility.
Some of my fav 🔥 upper + lower body movements to build curves and shape; there are so many variations of all these lifts, be sure to try them all out:
Upper body -
1️⃣ Lateral raises
2️⃣ Lat pull-down
3️⃣ Seated cable row
4️⃣ Face pulls
Lower body (go as HEAVY as safely possible) -
5️⃣ Squats (I really like sumo & narrow stance)
6️⃣ Hip abduction
7️⃣ Leg press (toes pointed out for emphasis on glutes)
