By far my favorite movement at the moment for targeting the hamstrings and glutes is the front rack reverse lunge.⠀
A real all round bang for your buck exercise that helps stabilize the shoulders, mobilize the lats and strength the posterior chain.

It's about realising what you're capable of and being proud that you put in the WORK to get there
Thank you @eleonorarganese
In Sit Ups, the flexion of the lumbar region pushes the vertebral disc posteriorly increasing the displacement of the liquid / pulpy nucleus.
Recall that contrary to what is thought in the gym, it is not the extension of the spine to be dangerous, because in this case the disc is pushed forward, where the anterior longitudinal ligament, viscera and abdominal pressure, maintain the correct arrangement of the vertebral compartment. The flexion instead has the opposite effect and the shear forces push back where there are many less tissues that can maintain the articular congruity between body and disc. Moreover, it is not a functional gesture because your core never asks you for a job in this position and above all in lumbar flexion. Train your core while holding the lumbar spine and moving upper and lower limbs.
Nei Sit Ups, la flessione del tratto lombare spinge il disco vertebrale posteriormente aumentando lo spostamento del nucleo liquido/polposo.
Ricordiamo che contrariamente a quanto si pensa in palestra, non è l’estensione del rachide ad essere pericolosa, perché in questo caso il disco viene spinto in avanti, dove legamento longitudinale anteriore, visceri e pressione addominale, mantengono il corretto assetto del compartimento vertebrale. La flessione invece ha l’effetto opposto e le forze di taglio spingono posteriormente dove ci sono molti meno tessuti che possono mantenere la congruità articolare tra corpo e disco. Inoltre, non e’ un gesto funzionale in quanto il tuo core non ti chiede mai un lavoro in questa posizione e soprattutto in flessione lombare. Allena il tuo core tenendo fermo il tratto lombare e muovendo arti superiori e inferiori.
Be part oft it! 😀 Wäre cool, wenns öfter klappen würde!
Heute hats auf jeden Fall mal funktioniert und ich hab in einer regulären Stunde mitgemacht. 🤗💕 In unserer 19Uhr Klasse gabs ein nettes Condi Workout und nach 5 Wochen Bodybuilding, Accessory und Weakness Work gabs die erste Runde Conditioning. Echt ein nettes Ding 😀👌 15Minuten AMRAP: 400m run + ME Wallballs 😁
Ich hatte 130 Wallballshots. Wer bietet mehr? 😃😉😆 #crossfit#crossfitalbatross#wallballs#training#regensburg#conditioning#fitness#fitgirls#health#lifestyle

Determination is dynamic, it's thinking of as many possibilities as to how you can get it done, it's not linear nor mindless. Determination is failing, it's doing it over again, figuring out a new way, it's curiosity and a will to go through with it. It's focus, intellect and passion. It's following through and finishing it. Determination becomes an accomplishment.

😱😱 Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson in 1990! Biggest upset in boxing history? 🤔👊
SWIPE RIGHT to see why proper posture alignment plays a major role in Top Speed. This was captured during @cheynr_42 first session. Last week’s post talked about posture and how it effects acceleration, but take a look at the before and after video of this post and see how posture effects your ability to run fast at maximum velocity. When your upper body is leaning forward it causes your foot cycle to be inefficient. You will end up having a lot of backside mechanics ( foot high behind your butt ) and the path of the foot will move from high behind you to down and in front of you. And in Cheyne’s case it can cause a heavy heel strike, which is a hard breaking motion. After Cheyne improved his posture, it was much easier to bring his knees up in front which allowed him to have a much more efficient foot path. The foot now begins to move backward creating a foot strike that is powerful and faster off the ground due to it landing underneath his Center of Mass. Great change for one session!
