#MIDWEEKMOTIVATION————> “be honest about your weaknesses”. You are who and where you are, and there is joy, not shame, in that. Don’t fall for the trap of pretending while competing or watching someone else’s progress, or giving ear to the notions of who and where you SHOULD be. Acknowledge where you are. And then truthfully acknowledge where you aren’t! Mentally, emotionally, spiritually, professionally, relationally. You can’t solve a problem until you first admit there is one! Don’t worry about putting on a facade, or faking it until you make it. Be transparent and honest about the areas of your life that need growth. We all have them!! Pretending you are further along than you truly are will get you no where; it will keep you stuck where you actually are (not stuck where you are pretending you are!). 🌱 #Growth#weaknesses#Honesty#Transparency#Motivation#Encouragement#Career#Success#Ministry#EncouragedPeopleEncouragePeople FOLLOW @bethoumotivated for CONSTANT motivation! 🎉
Whether it’s leg press or hack squats, either are a perfect exercise to follow up some squats on leg day.
TIP: With leg presses and hack squats, NEVERRRR lock out your knees. You want to always keep your quads contracted (flexed) and knees slightly bent. Helps reduce a lot of risk for injury👌🏼💪🏼
👆Handstand push ups o flexiones verticales invertidas.
¿En qué consiste el ejercicio?
Básicamente, el ejercicio consiste en la realización de una flexión de brazos en posición vertical invertida, es decir, colocando todo el peso del cuerpo sobre las manos y desde allí, descendiendo mediante la flexión de los codos.
Para comenzar el ejercicio debemos apoyar ambas palmas de las manos en el suelo, separadas poco más allá del ancho de los hombros, cerca de una pared donde colocaremos los pies. Con los brazos extendidos, nos colocamos en posición vertical mediante la contracción del abdomen.
Siempre con la espalda recta y las piernas juntas descendemos lentamente mediante la flexión de brazos todo el cuerpo hasta tocar el suelo con la cabeza por delante de las manos. Y lentamente se regresa a la posición inicial para completar una repetición del ejercicio.
Como se puede ver, resulta importante mantener la contracción del abdomen y no arquear la espalda durante todo el recorrido del ejercicio, para trabajar de forma segura y eficiente, así como también, siempre se deben mantener los pies en contacto con la pared.
Músculos trabajados con Handstand push ups
Este movimiento requiere de mucha fuerza y entrenamiento previo, debido su alta exigencia para los músculos de brazos y hombros, quienes deben sostener todo el peso del cuerpo durante el ejercicio.
Así, los músculos más trabajados cuando ejecutamos handstand push ups o flexiones verticales invertidas, son los hombros y tríceps, pero de manera secundaria intervienen los músculos del core, sobre todo, lumbares y abdominales que se esfuerzan para mantener el equilibrio durante el movimiento.
Se trata de un ejercicio muy exigente y complejo, que requiere de mucha fuerza y estabilidad, por lo que no es recomendable su realización en principiantes.

It is so hard to maintain motivation to stick to a healthy lifestyle during these winter months, and I know you guys have been feeling it too. It’s times like this when I’m so glad to be a #teamipartner because I honestly love their products and they keep me on track even on my worst days. The @teamiblends detox program gives me that boost of energy when I don’t want to get out of bed for the gym, and it gets rid of all the junk and build up that make me feel tired, bloated, and just uncomfortable in my body. I cannot recommend this program more, and it’s really made a difference in the results I see from the gym, which just motivates me to go more! You definitely need to try it out during their holiday sale! Use my code ADRY25 for 25% off yours! ✅@adry_bella✅ BE STRONG, LIVE LONG💟 #thankyouteami#healthylifestyle

Made it back home #LA
It was great spending time with my family for the holidays, love you guys! ❤️ and im gonna miss my little gangsta 😭
I choose BOTH.
Both present and productive.
Both calm and busy.
Both homebody and adventurous.
Both happiness and uncertainty.
Both giving and saving.
Both caregiver and self care.
Both dependence and freedom.
Both wealth and simplicity.
Both a teacher and a learner.
Both familiar and the unknown.
Both comfort and change.
Both. ALWAYS BOTH. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that it has to be one or the other.

•A chiropractic adjustment puts the spine into proper alignment, alleviating pressure on the congested lymph ducts and allowing them to flow more freely to protect you against colds, flu and other illnesses.
•Your Lymphatic System filters out bacteria, viruses and other harmful substances through lymph, a clear fluid made up of your immune cells.
•Chiropractic is the best decongestant!
🌟One study of cancer patients found that those who had chiropractic adjustments had a 200 to 400% stronger immune system than those patients who had no chiropractic.... amazing right!😁
. . .WE ALSO RECOMMEND. . .
•Having periodic lymphatic massages to maintain lymph flow.
•Drink plenty of fluids to continually flush out your system.
•Eat well: green leafy vegetables, green tea w/ honey & lemon, probiotics, and protein rich foods.
•Avoid toxins as much as possible: alcohol, processed foods and sugar.
•Get plenty of sleep
• Exercise will help keep you more resistant to cold.

Lower body functional workouts always got you covered when its time to just engage everything in that whole lower body region 🙏 ⠀
Four movements that will get the entire legs and glutes firing and working together ☺️ ⠀
Don’t forget to save so I can come with you to the gym ❤️ ⠀
⭐️ Kettlebell squat swings (3 x 12): such an amazing burner and so worth the practice to get the rhythm 😍 Push the kettlebells upwards with the shoulders as you squat down, and keep force going down through the heels. Start real slow and with just a little baby weight until it feels good 💪 ⠀
⭐️ Front elevated lunges (3 x 8 per leg): I like to stay right on my toes with the back foot and then the front leg is responsible for stabilising too, which adds an extra level 👏 Also, taking these real slow works a treat 😊 ⠀
⭐️ Single arm lateral kettlebell swings (3 x 8 per side): just small sideways steps and a little kettlebell work perfectly here ⠀
⭐️ Duck walks (3 x 16 total steps): two versions of these which are in the same clip ☺️ Stay real low and don’t step up too high, with the knees in line with the hips (not pointing outwards) - skip this one if you’re not 100% comfortable in the knees 💛 ⠀
Enjoyyy and hope you feel alive after! 😘 ⠀
Injuries suck! My ankle started to act up again and made me have to slow down on my lower body training again. I am unfortunately seeing my lower body start to store some fat, specially on the lower Glute area. This is frustrating because I can’t push on doing cardio or plyos to help bring down the fatty areas. Nevertheless, it is what it is, I can’t dictate where my body is going to want to store fat. I know that once I am back 100%, the area is going to get tight again. I just need to be patient.

Over coming self-limiting beliefs and self-imposed limitations is often the biggest obstacle standing between you and the realization of your full potential.
1.DON'T BE LIMITED BY YOUR PAST
Learn from past experience but don't let it stranglehold you. Applying past experience can cause us to err in our present judgment, however, when we don't adjust the context of what is happening now. Take the good lessons about practicing caution and weigh up that need for being cautious with the need to keep trying new things.
2. BE OPEN TO TRY NEW AND DIFFICULT THINGS
When you avoid situations and events, you avoid the risks inherent in undertaking an activity or meeting new people. You also avoid the potential for discovery and great opportunities. Avoidance is a safety mechanism built up from past experiences, current fears, and presumed rather than actual outcomes. It takes a lot of work to overcome avoidance as a habit but the first step is to recognize that you do this, and to start working on not relying on avoidance as a habit. Don't overwhelm yourself by taking on too many new experiences at once. Test things out slowly and reward yourself for each small step that you take. When you remove the pressure, you will find it easier to gradually take up new ventures. ~
3. STOP NEGATIVE SELF-TALK When you insist that other people can do something better than you, or that you're just not able to do something because you're too young, too old, too fat, too thin, too pretty, too ugly, too smart, too dumb, etc., you automatically limit your belief that you can do something. Once that happens, you work really hard at confirming your negative impression and in turn, put yourself and your abilities down. The better course of action is to believe that you're capable and to at least "give it a go."

Listen up guys!!!! My very dear friend and kick ass trainer has always told me to go after my goals, follow my heart and never give up. Well, that’s just what he did!! Eddie has always talked about opening his own fitness/training center so... that’s just what he did!!! FitFam NY will be having a soft opening December 20th!!! Words can’t express how proud I am of this man. He puts his mind to something and there is no stopping him.
@truckgordon I wish you nothing but the best and a lifetime of success and prosperity. Love you!!! Now let me pop this baby out and get back to the gains, FitFam style!!! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
I don’t even know where to start this with Girl right here!! @goldens.girl 😱😱😱😱From Day 1 (about 3/4 months ago) she’s busted her ass ever session. The results don’t lie) she Has cussed me out several times BUT it comes from a place of love and pushing past physical limitations she set on herself. She has every excuse to not come and workout which include 8+ operations on several organs over the past few years, but she shows up session after session to be the best version of herself. I have nothing but the MAD respect for her and how dedicated she is. So alive and determined to accomplish her goals, not for the physical aesthetics but how good she feels after its all said and done. She is currently out for another operation so keep her in your prayers and I cannot wait til she is back in action later this month 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 thank you for being amazing. @goldens.girl#thrive#transformation#beforeandafter#motivation#fireanddesire@independencegym
