Supplements are exactly as their name indicates - supplemental to your primary source of nutrition
Using food as fuel is critical...when your body is hungry, feed it nutrients not calories
If you’ve got your priorities in check, then incorporating supplements are certainly an added bonus ✅
Since we're on a roll with stabilization, here's another great core exercise that targets the lower abdominals, obliques and hip flexors! This is a good exercise for people who have an excessive anterior pelvic tilt or "sway" in the low back. ***FORM CHECK*** -Beginning on your back with no more, no less than a hand space between your low back and the floor, bring your arms straight up to the ceiling and bent your knees to 90 degrees. -Before you move, take a breath into the belly begin to push out then stop it, creating pressure in the sides and lower abdomen and slightly engage the glutes creating rigidity through the entire body -Holding that pressure, begin to lower down one arm and the opposite leg, ONLY AS FAR AS YOU CAN MAINTAIN NEUTRAL. The goal is to ONLY be moving the arms and legs, there should be no movement from the spine. -Hold extended for a 2 count and as you bring the arm and leg back together purse the lips and slowly but forcefully exhale creating a little extra tension to pull you back in -Switch sides and repeat 10-12 times for 2-3 sets -To regress this movement keep the knee bent and lightly tap the floor with your toe before returning to the start -To increase the difficulty of this movement, hold a stability ball between your arms and knees and CRUSH the air out of it as you move through the exercise. ***IF YOU EXPERIENCE ANY PAIN THROUGH THIS MOVEMENT, STOP IMMEDIATELY AND SEEK PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE*** #thorsenchiropractic#deadbug#corestability#strength#abdominals#hips#obliques#lowbackpain#instability#chiropractic#functionalstrength
Stability and abs!
_GREAT for building those side abs/obliques and tightsene the waist!
Remembr to ALWAYS control your breathing, especially while doing abs!
This will help you to keep a tight waist and will also help you to stabilize your upper body during over head press and other exercises!
3 x to controlled failure, 😅👍 #abs#absworkout#core#obliques#sixpack#fitnessmotivation#fitness#bodybuilding
You don’t get rid of love handles by making love, but you do with BARBELL SUITCASE ISO HOLDS. Make sure to grab the middle of the bar since, the length and big weights and the ends of the bar makes this a killer. Also brace that core, stomach tight butt tight, ayo. Almost took a spill finessed it tho
The foot and ankle complex is probably the most neglected area in all of training. This is instantly my new favorite exercise for that region. This is a lot harder than it looks.
This is a great way to improve balance and 3 dimensional ankle strength. Merely balancing one one leg can be easy for most and can actually be harmful to the hip and low back, as it is easy to passively sit on the hip and further compress that joint. Standing on an airex pad and moving a 25lb plate around the body leaves zero room for cheating.
This one is great for both athletes and general population alike.
SMASHED my goal 4 weeks early, dipped below 170 pounds for a day. Iv learnt a lot on this journey, mainly how lazy, jealous un motivated people will try and knock your focus but those who put the work in are the first to say 'WELL DONE'. Day 1 of my mass phase starts today July 25th 2016.
