Happy to be back training on some sequences; one that has made it to my favorites list.
After that initial moment of “scariness”, this move became really fun. Thanks @sarahromanowsky

💪The pull-up is a great exercise for the upper body.
With the recent trend of calisthenics coming along in SG, pull-ups have become a common exercise amongst both men and women.
🛑But are you getting your shoulders injured instead because you’re doing it wrong?
☝️ Before going into a full pull-up, you should learn the important movement of scapular depression and develop sufficient strength of the latissimus dorsi (lats muscle).
✅This video here demonstrates the straight arm lats pulldown done in a home set-up friendly manner.
All you’ll need is a band, a point to attach your band above and a stick/umbrella!
👯♀️Share & tag your friends who are trying to get their first-ever pull up!

Went to our good friend ceci’s restaurant for nice lunch with Olivia and my mom. Food is good! Nice home cooked food without MSG. Perfect for little kids
Starting to get back to pulling work, with some bits of work on one arm chinups. Coupled with some bridge pushups to get more volume of backbend work.
Another attempt to get out of my usual practice and work on stuff i dont usually work on. Lets see how far i'll go this time.

Happy Hump Day Team... who found POD 3 tough today? 😰
FUNCTIONAL THORACIC MOBILITY
This region is made to extend and rotate (no need flexion cause most of us are stuck at that position)
Here’s 4 exercise to Improve your mobility and strength for #boxing
1) Foam roll T-spine extension
2) 4 point extension + rotations
3) 4 point cable press across
4) 4 point cable pull across
Stiffness at the thoracic spine from being stuck in flexion for too long (desk bound) or only training Bilateral exercise (bench pressing) will create restriction in rotation and extension.
From this restriction it makes the body borrow movements from shoulder protraction (forward shoulder) and lower back to compensate in excessive rotation and extension which would lead to strains and injuries.
Do practice this and get your body performing pain free! Book an appointment @workliftbalance
if you’ve pain that won’t go or you just wanna get that Sustainable fitness in 💪🏾

The layers of soft, juicy beef meatballs finished with broiled cheddar, tangy red pepperonata and fresh, sweet caramelized onions between the crusty fresh focaccia bread is a fun, tasty alternative from our staples here at GB 👊❤️ #GentleBros #GentleBrosCafe
For some crazy reason I really cannot workout when I’m in Europe 🤷🏼♀️ It just doesn’t feel right, not the way eating yummy food and drinking wine do 🐷
Cannot wait to be back home to have a routine again and take my favorite yoga classes 🙌🏻
Are my teachers ready to punish me for being so lazy lately? #sexylegs

The fascial system and how it truly ties everything together from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet.
If you can learn to use the Posterior Oblique Sling you will have a much more powerful swing while reducing the chance of injury. After all we are human and walking running and throwing(rotations) are something we humans are capable of doing. So what is the Posterior Oblique Sling? It is comprised of 3 things.
3)Contralateral Latissimus Dorsi
Together all these 3 connected your left shoulder and your right hip as well as your right shoulder and left hip. This is very important because this helps to drive your base locomotion.
Think about as you walk or run the right arm will swing forward while the left leg swings forward, and vice versa. Meaning the Posterior Oblique Sling is stretched as they swing forward. As they swing back the musculature of the Posterior Oblique Sling contracts. It is these opposing sides one swings forward and the other swings back that allow us to walk upright. They keep our back up correctly. How does that work with the golf swing and how can you use it to get more power?
As you swing your club into the backswing your left hip will straighten out and the right shoulder swings back towards that hip. The opposite is happening with the right hip and left shoulder. We then contract our posterior oblique sling connecting the right hip and left shoulder to swing the club. So we transfer our body from one sling contracted to the opposite contracted. The whole time the thoracolumbar fascia is helping the stabilize our low back. Now you want more power…
We have to train the body to use these muscles they way they were made to be used. There are few exercises about Posterior Oblique Sling at Functional Patterns on YouTube. Do check it out. #FunctionalPatterns #golfswing #Golf #doyouevenrotatebro #functionalbynature #slings #trainingpainfree #sgfitness #health #fpallday #contralateralreciprocation #myofascialforcetransmission #fascia
