  • One of my absolute favorite exercises to improve mobility and bullet proof the shoulders - prone swimmers hovers. . This exercise builds end range strength and control of the posterior shoulder musculature such as the rotator cuff and scapula stabilizers. _______ ✅ How it’s done. ✔️Start on your front. ✔️Hands behind head. ✔️Pinch shoulder blades and raise elbows up as high as possible. ✔️Lift off hands and extend the elbows until arms are in a Y position. ✔️Turn the palm down and extend back while internally rotating the shoulders biceps turning inwards) - keeping arms as high off the ground as possible. ✔️When your arms reach a 45 degree angle from your torso, hinge at the elbows and place hands as high up your back as possible. ✔️Reverse motion by pinching shoulder blades and raising elbows. ✔️Lift hands and extend the elbows. ✔️Turn the palms up and externally rotate the shoulders (biceps turn upwards) while returning to the Y position. ✔️Hinge through elbows and place hands on the back of your neck. ➖Relax elbows. ✔️Repeat for 2-3 rounds or 2-3 reps. ⚠️ Add 1-2kg only when you become very competent - it’s savage 😱 .

  • ◾Hello guys 🙌 I already post few times workouts or examples how you can use resistance bands in your training.I really love to use them as they give a lot of benefits to my training. If you’ve ever been to a gym, you might have seen resistance bands floating around. Perhaps you’ve used them before or you want to know the benefits before you pick one up😁👌🏼 ◽A resistance band does exactly what the name suggests: it adds resistance to an exercise.This added resistance helps strengthen your muscle and pushes you to work a little bit harder😅👌🏼 ◽Resistance bands work your muscles like weights do your muscles contract to generate force to stabilize and control the desired movement. However, unlike weights, resistance bands don’t rely on gravity to provide the resistance. This means that the body can move and expand the range of motion in certain exercises ,e.g. lift the arms higher in a side arm lift. Resistance bands have been the staple for those in rehabilitation from a sports or muscle related injury. This is because resistance bands don’t apply pressure in the way that weighs do, keeping your joints and everything else safe🙌🏼 Moreover, people of any age and fitness level can get an effective workout using resistance bands, as many exercises and stretches can be done from a seated position.👌🏼 Add a resistance band to your workouts to feel that extra burn😅🔥 .......................................... #resistancebandsworkout #resistancebands #dubaipersonaltrainer #femalecoach #coaching #results #fitness #strength #strongwomen #befit #igfitness #performancetraining #healthyjoints #nutrition #mydubai #dxb #training #gymalways #gymtime

  • THE DEAD BUG, IT WILL DO WONDERS FOR YOUR POSTURE . Have you ever done the dead bug? This is not just a rehab exercise, it is a great exercise to retrain your body how contract the proper muscles to keep a neutral spine while standing, sitting or even lifting weights 💪. There are different ways to make it more difficult by adding in more resistance on the torso by moving the arms and legs; this also adds coordination to the exercise as well. . HOW TO PERFORM . STATIC 1️⃣ Ly flat on your back and push your lower back to the floor (think of pushing your belly button to the floor) 2️⃣ Lift both your legs and arms and point them to the ceiling (make sure you don't lift your legs up to far that your pelvis lifts off the floor) 3️⃣ Repeat 3x and hold for 30-60 sec . UNILATERAL 1️⃣ Ly flat on your back and push your lower back to the floor (think of pushing your belly button to the floor) 2️⃣ Lift both your legs and arms and point them to the ceiling (make sure you don't lift your legs up to far that your pelvis lifts off the floor) 3️⃣ Lower your same side arm and leg at the same time towards the floor, once they touch bring them back to the starting position 4️⃣ Repeat on the opposite side 5️⃣ Perform 3x for 30-60 sec . CONTRALATERAL 1️⃣ Ly flat on your back and push your lower back to the floor (think of pushing your belly button to the floor) 2️⃣ Lift both your legs and arms and point them to the ceiling (make sure you don't lift your legs up to far that your pelvis lifts off the floor) 3️⃣ Lower your left arm and right leg at the same time towards the floor, once they touch bring them back to the starting position 4️⃣ Repeat on the opposite arm and leg 5️⃣ Perform 3x for 30-60 sec . When I have clients with sway back posture this is one of the main exercises I prescribe to them to help them feel what a neutral/straight spine feels like. Once the body is more aware of what it is capable of, it is easier to put your body in the right position and keep it there. .

  • HOW WELL DOES YOUR SPINE MOVE? . Our spines are made to move in every direction, lateral, forward flexion, extensions, side flexion, the lumbar spine should move separately from the thoracic. All of these movements that I am saying we should be experiencing does not happen in most of the population. Muscles get locked and stiff making movement much more difficult or even impossible. . WHY DOES IT MATTER? . Our spine can be a large contributor to mobility in the joints of our upper body. When we are limited it can cause limited mobility, inflammation in the joints, pain or even injury. . HOW DO WE FIX THIS? . We fix this by using different exercises to retrain our spine to move in multiple planes. This exercise helps to create movement laterally in the spine plus also adding rotation, by doing this it creates tension on the muscle that normally doesn't get stretched when doing a normal rotation or side flexion. Our bodies are supposed to move in this type of direction but we never train it, so now we are here to gain mobility so we can be pain-free!! .

  • Empower (verb) - 1) to make someone stronger and more confident. 2) to give someone the authority or power to do something. . . Being part of the #flexfam (like Maria and Shari) means so much more than just another gym member. We strive to EMPWER in 3 specific areas: ourselves, each other, and our community. Obviously, working out with ancient weapons like a steel mace will make you feel empowered and warrior-esqe but it's more than that. It's the way we encourage you to be a little different, to own your authenticity. We are a little unique, and we do things differently than the industry standard, but that's ok, because that's us. And maybe it's you too 🤷🤷‍♂️ and if it's not, no sweat! If strict traditional lifting is your style, do you boo! (Side note - we have that here too 😉) But if you like challenging the status quo, going against the grain, pushing limits, see things a little differently and get a little rebellious once in a while then maybe Flex is right for you. If you feel most comfortable with a group of people who smile, joke around and curse a little while sweating their faces off then I suggest you head on over to our website for more info. Sounds like you would fit right in here 💪 . . . #flexfam #lifestyle #nogymratshere #functionalbodies #healthyjoints #movement #moveyourbody #tacfit #cst #clubbellyoga #steelmace #doyou #bestself #ferndale #fitspo #fitness #whatcomcounty #newschool #ancientwisdom

  • Cutting through the confusion when it comes to your health. Many really good articles are in 👉THRIVE magazine👈, including the one about #nutrition for healthy joints. If you are a runner or lift heavy weights, you will appreciate the read. 📰From the #arcticle: • Bones need #calcium and vitamin D to remain strong – dairy products as well as green leafy vegetables are good calcium sources whilst sunshine, eggs and oily fish remain sources of vitamin D. • Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, EPA and DHA, are found naturally in oily fish and if taken correctly, can help increase blood flow during exercise. They will also play a role in the anti-inflammatory pathway, with some reports stating that joint stiffness can be eased. • Brightly coloured fruit and vegetables that contain vitamin C, E and A can limit any joint damage (includibg inflamation) whilst also supporting the immune system. • Vitamin C helps the body produce collagen, which is rich in mainly yellow and orange fruit and vegetables such as peppers and pineapple ➡️www.thrive-magazine.co.uk⬅️ • • • #nutrition #read #magazine #innerfireitiz #article #healthyjoints #foodforjoints #runner #legs #fitness #healthyfood #strongbody #keepingyoung #morning #morningthoughts #omega3 #vitamind #vitamins #greenfood
