In today's "on demand" world, it's easy for folks to feel frustrated because they're not seeing their fitness results come into fruition fast enough. Keep charging forward and stick to the game plan. While the visible results may be taking longer than you might desire, your body is probably thanking you for adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Today marks 8 years since the day I became the proud dog papa to the Greatest Dog EVER, Carmine 😀🐶!!! Many, many thanks to Mrs. Michelle McHugh for allowing this to happen when I was living in Philly. On Day One, I officially christened him as my babyboy by taking him with me to run the Rocky steps. Since then, we've had many great memories (and many, many, MANY challenges 🙃), from marking his territory in 10 states during our move to the west coast 😁 to chasing me in a full sprint at Dog Beach in San Diego to being my training companion for the two half marathons that I ran. Cheers to an amazing 8 years and to an even more amazing 8 years ahead of us!
What are you doing this Monday to prove yourself and feel challenged?🙃😎🙌 In my days of CrossFit which was many moons ago ( roughly 6-7yrs ago) I couldn’t do T2B aka Toes 2 Bar! However, I feel as the years gone by my confidence and believe in myself has increased tremendously!! Was i as strong back then? YUP! (Probably even more so than now) Was I younger ? Oh YEAH!🤣
But all of that doesn’t matter if you don’t BELIEVE in yourself‼️😉 Thanks @jodetermined_ for pushing me!
¿Qué estás haciendo este lunes para demostrar tu confidencia y sentirte desafiado? En mis días de CrossFit, que era hace muchas lunas (hace aproximadamente 6-7 años) no pude hacer T2B alias Toes 2 Bar! ( pies hacia la barra) . Sin embargo, siento que con el paso de los años mi autoestima y creencia en sí misma han aumentado enormemente. ¿Fui tan fuerte en aquel entonces? ¡SIP! (Probablemente aún más que ahora) ¿Era más joven? ¡Oh sí! 🤣 .
Pero todo eso no importa si no CREES en ti mismo‼️😉 #motivacion#creeenti#tupuedes#believeinyourself#workinprogress#igetstrongereveryday#t2b#explosivetraining#crosstrainning#muevetucuerpo#desafiate#entrenamiento #915 #elpasofitness#choose2liv#chikisfitsquad#endowarrior#strongwomen 👍 👍
Squats are amongst the most physically demanding exercises, as well as the least sexy (particularly for the newbies that are using their bodyweight or just the bar), but this does not qualify as a valid excuse to skip them. Squats are what builds a solid foundation, which means reducing your risk of suffering an unfortunate injury on moving day or the like. Keep your ego in check and learn proper technique before moving on to reaching for new PRs.
P.S. Using the Smith machine doesn't count as a squat, neither does failing to go down to parallel, at the least 😏
Correct answer: a resounding Choice E! There is no such thing as "one exercise" that is the magic weight loss pill for everyone. Obviously, I'm a firm believer in resistance training, but it would be dumb to think that it works for everyone, namely because some folks prefer different forms of exercise. Find what you love to do and that you can easily adhere to doing, and move your body!
P.S. The same goes for diets (oh yes, I went there 😎)
