Tag a friend that would hit this hard! Try it out and let me know how it goes!👊🏻
Playing around with adding a little more variety in our extensions today. We spend a lot of the day in flexion so this is the perfect antidote! Try coming up into diamond press, with fingertips touching the forehead... extend arms out (think superman) and continue to engage the core as you hold.... bring elbows to the side of the body (as pictured), hold again... back to superman... you’ve guessed it... hold! Finally fingers back to forehead and return to the mat. Not only does this work on back and core strength... trust me... your abs are feeling this one... but it also helps with shoulder strength and mobility. This little gem was taught to me by @physiobrad and I love it! My clients on the other hand... give it a try and see what you think!
Well done to Remote client @mrpk1987 for his great performance at @battleofbritaintd
Alex improved from his qualifying placement by 35 places at the Finals

“In the best way, I just thought of you as I peed in a Port-O-Potty in my neutral spine chair. I thought to myself... I have to keep neutral spine and that's hard in the Port-O-Potty because the door is so close to my knees. I had to work up so high! Bless those neutral spine chairs in class!" 😂🙌🏻😂🙌🏻
** Insanity: Day 16 **
1 minute of Switch Kicks will change your life !!!! Today was Pure Cardio and I once again pushed myself to the limit. I’m getting better and better every time I repeat these workouts but that just means I push myself harder so it only gets worse LOL. Time to fuel up and recover.
Online personal training coming soon⚡️comment if your interested & let me know what you’d like to see (what type of training is your fave, do you feel like you need a meal plan, stretching program, etc)! Limited availability, as I’ll be having surgery on both of my shoulders in the next few months💪🏼
Who is my role model and why?
noun. a person looked to by others as an example to be imitated.
The definition above is the reason I don't have role models, I never want to be "as good as" someone I look up to, I want to be able to use their examples in my life to mould me into the best ME.
I prefer the term Influencers and there have been numerous people who have impacted my life and helped shape me to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be.
A couple of the people who directly influenced me obviously include my parents who gave me every single opportunity I could ever want and no door was closed to me unless they knew it wouldn't benefit me.
I have always found my greatest influence from books and a couple authors who have completely changed the way I think are @richmulholland, @timferriss and @malcolmgladwell to name a few.
Never forget that if you are constantly imitating your heroes then you will only ever be as good as them... Take what they have to offer and use it in your own life and in your own way to make you the best that you can be! 💪 .

Want to take your single leg Glute Bridge to the next level!? Look no further.⠀
Especially if you’re familiar with Dvrt concept of cross patterning using an Ultimate Sandbag.⠀
Master Trainer @coach_evan_sups takes this already advanced exercise to a different level. The reason I like this so much is because the lifted leg is also engaged and pushing against the swiss ball keeping the quads, hip flexor and core active.⠀
Holding the handles of the sandbag keeps the lats engaged that results more core work while the glutes lift the hips up.
A Strong Core & Dynamic Stretching helps you increase your strength and protect your body against injury. Some players take yoga or do static stretching to meet their flexibility needs on the field. This is a fundamental mistake, and one of the reasons we see so many injuries in football. While relaxed stretches do work eventually, they work very slow and do not transfer well into the dynamic flexibility needs of a football player. Agility is the second point addressed by both core flexibility and stability. Agility is an ability to move quickly in any direction and change direction. An agile player can change the outcome of a game. Coaches know this, and thus spent considerable amount of time on footwork and agility drills. However most of the time, everything above the hips is neglected. This is improper as half the body is located above the pelvis. Flexible core adds greatly to players agility. This is true for Football, Basketball, Volleyball and any other sport. However specific core requirements are different, due to different techniques used. For reason special flexibility program is designed with football player in mind🏈💪💪⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #celebritytrainer#nfl#pro#football#sport#transformationtuesday#workout#gains#love#instafit#instafitness #crossfit#health#coach#gym#personaltrainer#hiit#weightloss#functionalfitness#muscle#fitness#stability#fatloss#instafitness#instafit#instagood#core#strong#power#athlete#trainer#college
