Let’s Talk Warm-Up! 🗣 - I’m a firm believer that the quality of your workout is determined by the quality of your warm-up! 💯 Breaking down the movements and putting together a warm-up specific to that day is something I always prioritize and think is important for longevity 👊🏼 - This ☝🏼 is an in-depth look at the warm-up I perform before heavy squats! The main focus is on priming the hips and glutes! 🍑 - * Lateral Hip Distraction * Air Squat + Thoracic Rotation * Dead Bug + Hip Extension * Single Leg Step Up’s * Lateral Walks (Not 🎥 ) * Air Squats (Not 🎥 )
As I stand here in this moment, I am perfect, whole, and complete. And so are YOU. Make the commitment right now to stop using professional accomplishments and titles to measure your worth. Girl, don't you know you are already worthy?? Simply because you were made in the image and likeness of God. The moment you were conceived in your mother's womb you were ALREADY enough!! For all of you walking around wounded because you grew up feeling like you could never measure up, I challenge you to start the healing process NOW. I know you think that if you could just get that promotion at work, or that next degree, or those clients, it will heal the wound that was formed so long ago. Maybe then, you think, I'll finally feel like I'm enough. Like I'm worth something. Maybe then I'll finally make (Daddy, Mommy, or whoever made me feel less than) proud. I get it. I wanted my dad to be proud of me too, even when I didn't know it. I thought I had given up on that a long time ago. But it was always there in the background, subconsciously influencing every move that I made. We are all only one decision away from a breakthrough. So I DECIDED to relate to myself as perfect in this moment and I invite you to do the same. Self love is the almighty healer. I know its hard when you're used to beating up on yourself. I also know that you grew up with criticism as the motivator for self improvement. When you did something wrong, you were criticized. When you did something right, you were praised. And sometimes only when it was perfect. So now you only praise yourself and celebrate when you feel like you deserve it, when things are perfect (which is almost never). How about you praise yourself just because. It may be strange at first but the more you do it, it will become like second nature. And then you may start to believe some of these things you tell yourself and start to embody it. That's when the magic will happen. Everything that you want is on the other side of loving yourself. Because when you truly love yourself you believe, in the fiber of your being, that you are worthy. Of having EVERYTHING that you want!
