PBSoPi, just a little feature on the Pure Barre corporate page... Fit List Tip for the holidays #WellnessWednesday
Today’s Fit List tip comes from @PureBarreSouthernPines owner, Lori West. “Indulge in that special event or holiday party rather than the entire holiday season. The reality is one or two parties will not make or break your health and fitness plans. Unfortunately, what does is the daily over indulging of treats and skipping your workouts. Enjoy the occasional party while staying consistent with your workouts and healthy eating.”
"I choose to see peace instead of this."
Our in-the-moment choices powerfully transform our experience of this moment.
Begin this day anew.
Ground yourself in PEACE when the demands and emotional contagion of others rock you from center.
You then become the change...a creator of peace in the world.
“Hayal kurarsınız, plan yaparsınız ve başarırsınız! Engeller olacaktır. Sizden şüphe duyanlar olacaktır. Hatalarınız olacaktır. Fakat sıkı çalışma, inanç ve kendinize ve etrafınızdakilere güven duymanızla beraber limit kalmayacaktır.” - M. Phelps
Do you know what’s one of the few things the general population can have that athletes have? A strong pair of glutes!! Strong glutes promotes hip and lower back stabilization; improve your athletic performance. Even enhance your squat and deadlift. Today, we introduce you to the Frog Bridge.
The Frog Bridge is used for increasing activation and strength in the glutes. This variation emphasizes mobility in the adductors (groin muscles) with the hips externally rotated than the standard version. It focuses MAINLY on the glutes taking out usage of the hamstrings. Here’s how we do them with the feet on an elevated surface for more ROM (range of motion).
▪️Position Feet on a dumbbell and externally rotate your hips (pull your knees apart)
▪️Perform a bridge while maintaining a hips externally rotated position
▪️By keeping your hips externally rotated throughout this exercise the posterior hip muscles, and specifically the gluteus Maximus, is being targeted
▪️Perform for 2-4 sets at 10-15 reps or hold for 30 seconds for maximum glute activation and booty gains 💪🏾
STAY TUNED FOR ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF THE MOVEMENT CHRONICLES ON THE HIPS NEXT WEEK!
