Squats week 4 of 20. This day has been a real struggle. Squating last week felt like I was on top of the world. This week I feel like I just cannot get my body to work with me. It took me a long time to go through my warm up only to get 3 reps in. The only upside is that I was able to take the weight up to 110kg but that felt like 200kg compared to last week. Many factors could include lack of sleep or not the best pre training meals. End of the day, I say what's done is done and let's focus on the next one and work on how to make sure I don't go through this again. It's all a process in the end.
Girls who lift... THEMSELVES!
Yesterday I had an UH-MAYYY-zing day with UH-MAYYY-zing people. Started the day with a damn early 2 hour roadtrip to Germany to surf the artificial wave again. So in the morning we surfed and tanned and afterwards closed the day with a BBQ sausage fest and pole dancing class with/at my long lost (3.5 year) surfbabe friend @ricardastone. And this is the dancing pole in her living room. Goals I say. So! Together with other surfbabe @lena.gold we literally took it for a spin. But the even the guys did a few attempts! Anywhooo... One thing is sure: powerlifting made it possible to get that body up in there. Coz the last move, 2 years ago I couldn't even get my feet off the ground (different starting / hand position). And now I'm just a few steps away from perfection. LOL. A many few. Yup. Thanks again for the great session Ricarda! So will look for a poledancing skool up in this city after the SBD Cup!

Ah, a lot has happened since I’ve last posted on here. I feel like I’m always going through stuff and I’m coming back with another story. Lol, I’ll hold off. But I’m currently still on my fitness journey, so don’t fear, I have not nor will I ever give up. Trying new things as of current, and I’m taking my physical therapy career path more and more seriously. On my way to becoming a healthy, fit, learned, physical therapist and I can’t be more excited. Maybe I’ll document that with you guys too? Who knows anymore. Even I don’t. Lol I don’t remember if I’ve told you guys, but I’m starting to hit another plateau, so I’m currently implementing a new diet and exercise program. Can’t wait to see how this month turns out. Really excited actually. Well? Until I post again, I promise I’ll try and be more consistent. 🙏🏼

Welcome to one of the goals o had last year, was to do a headstand. I accomplished it but I didn’t continue to practice it which lead me to lose the ability to do it. To be entirely honest, the last time I practiced doing a headstand was back in August 2017....almost A YEAR ago😱
When I went to Yoga On The Roof the other day, I tried doing a headstand with the help of our Yoga instructor, Jen, and I just couldn’t do it. When I saw the video of myself doing it, I honestly felt like crap cause I let go of something I was SO PROUD of learning to do. It just goes to show that if you let go of something you practice constantly, you can lose the ability to do it/not able to do it as good as you did before OR, in other words, you lose that talent!
Here’s my new found goal and what I’ll be posting here and there about: Headstands! So thank you for those who voted and supported me in posting more about my journey to get back into doing headstands (even though there was one that said no😂🤷🏼♀️)!
Here’s to rocking this goal like I did last year🙌🏼🧘🏼♀️
The word ‘brother’ gets thrown around fairly loosely these days but the way @coreygerhardtperformance steps up in times when I need someone to have my back renders the term ‘friend’ fairly insubstantial. 👊🏼💪🏼
I’m cold. Please send the sun. 🌞
Almost 10 kilo down from this picture now! Every day offers another opportunity to do better than yesterday and I really feel like I am consistently taking advantage of this fact. Defo need to rebuild dat ass tho 🤔
I wanted to create a program that helped people move better in all the ways, feel better body & mind, AND be the foundation people can always return to & continue crushing their goals!! 💗💪🔥

FINDING YOUR IDEAL DEADLIFT (sumo) STANCE:
There is not a one size fits all approach to finding this stance.
But a good place to start is shins perpendicular to the floor at the bottom position of the deadlift. After you get here some factors can come into play:
📌Your individual strengths
📌Your mobility restrictions
Consider these when finding your ideal sumo stance
⚠️ Remember: this is a starting point. Some people may need to go wider or more narrow.
Comment, tag, share, or ask me questions ❤️
