Full Body Strength Workout
Dumbbell deadlifts- this exercises is a full-body functional movement used in everyday life - picking up groceries, laundry, children and pets. They work the posterior chain. They can help to strengthen the hamstrings, the glutes and the core if done correctly. Keep the dumbells close to your legs throughout the entire movement and be sure to keep your belly pulling up to your spine and your chest lifting up rather than sinking down. Remember, deadlifts are a hinging action your hips should be pulling back not lowering down. This is what differentiates the hinge movement from the squat.
TRX chest press - this exercise predominantly works the chest and triceps. By using the TRX you are given an opportunity to make the exercise more difficult by becoming more parallel to the floor, or easier by being at a greater angle from the floor. Either way, this is a great chest exercise that also incorporates shoulder stabilization. Your shoulders need to stabilize the TRX straps while you perform the movement. This adds an extra challenge. This exercise is not recommended for individuals that have a shoulder injury.
TRX knee tucks/ reverse crunches- this exercise works the abdominals and also the shoulders and triceps. Your feet go into the TRX handle while you are in a prone plank position. Keep pulling your chest up while pulling your knees up to your armpits. Make sure not to lift those hips up. Pull the knees in with the lower abdominal muscles.

Kung fu kicker
I watched Kung Fu Panda 🐼 last night (yes I’m a big kid and don’t care) and this morning’s workout was combat and I was laughing during the workout today (you cant see that in video ..had to be adult about it)
I was pretending to be ‘PO’🐼. Everyone needs to let the lil kid inside them play now and again!
Have a great Thursday everyone and act like a kid once in a while, who knows you may enjoy it 🤣
Today workout: Yoga flow which basically means nonstop movement. I adore yoga 🧘♀️I started it during my pregnancy with my son because I had so much lower back pain and couldn’t take anything for it. It was so bad at one point that I even went to the ER thinking something was wrong. Yoga saved me and was the only thing that helped and I’m so thankful it popped up in a search to help with pregnancy back pain. .
I have done yoga for years now. I took four semesters of it in college and learned so much about it. Every teacher had a different method from burning those calories to meditation to breathing techniques etc. It is an amazing exercise! I haven’t been doing everyday yoga like I used to but I get it in there when I need a break from heavy lifting. So good for the soul too :):) .

For now on I will also be answering any common questions you have about fitness, exercise, and performance🔥 -
The question that gets the most votes will be the one that is posted. I want to help you in the best way possible✌. -
This will allow me to do so. The first question I got today is this. -
How much cardio is good for the active recovery day? -
To be honest it depends on you as a person. There are many factors that go into this. -
How well you recover, how much time you can commit, your individual goals etc. -
If you're just starting out though I would recommend walking at least 20 minutes a day for good health. -
If you are trying to lose fat, 20-60 minutes a day is your best bet🔥. Make sure to keep it at low intensity though. -

It’s okay to be a masterpiece and a work in progress at the same time 🙌🏼❤️☺️ Embrace your journey every step of the way 🙏🏻 There will be days that you feel awesome and then days that you feel like you aren't moving ahead fast enough... Slow down there, speedy 😆 it's totally okay to be awesome and still feel like you are learning and growing (and sometimes failing) as you continue.
You are doing it and that's success!
Giving up is for those who don't want it badly enough!
I hear people tell me how they wish they could be as dedicated as I am or they want their arms to look like mine do, etc... The truth is, they can but they are choosing every day NOT TO.
I'm not placing judgment on those who aren't ready but it takes something deeper and much more focused to decide to change and not to stop when things get "hard"... 🙄
You will or you won't....but I'm here to tell you that you MUST!!! Be okay with slow progress because it's the only TRUE progress!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Success isn’t achieved with one sweeping push. It’s the countless, daily, under the radar wins that add up to pull you through. Make a point to recognize those in your journey all the way up. #kicventures#proveyourselfnow
