➡️While often overlooked, the quadratus lumborum muscles (QL) play a vital role in your body mechanics. They connect the spine, hips, and ribs, and allow you to move your body laterally, or side to side. Tightness in your QL muscles can cause back pain. Fortunately, stretching can help alleviate tightness. The best way to stretch your QL muscles is to do seated, classic, and dynamic side bends. You can also do a variety of other easy QL stretches, or try more challenging triangle poses. Remember to breathe while you stretch, and never push your body past its limits
✅Our quadratus lumborum muscles or QLs for short, are found on either side of the lumbar spine (lower back) and are important core muscles that help stabilise the lower back. They essentially connect the lower spine to the pelvis and assist with movements like side bending and ‘hiking’ the hip.
✅Many of you may know about these muscles in relation to back pain, and they are often the source of great discussion when trying to identify lower back issues. However, they are sometimes unfairly blamed as the sole culprit for pain and we can easily forget that the QL is just one part of a whole system of muscles that work together to support, stabilise and mobilise the spine.

If you use an average of 80 beats per minute, your heart beats about 4,800 times per hour. ❤️
That's a whopping 115,200 times per day. ❤️
Over the course of a year, your heart would beat about 42,048,000 times! ❤️
If you live to be 80 years old, your heart would have beaten approximately 3,363,840,000 times!
Something that might amaze you is that your heart actually
sends more orders to your brain via neural signals than your brain sends to your heart! 💙 In fact, the heart has it’s own intricate network of several types of neurons, neurotransmitters, proteins and support cells, like those found in the brain which means that the heart contains a little brain in its own right….’the heart brain’ 💙
Every single moment of every single day your heart is talking to your brain, and the the emotional signals it sends determine the chemicals your brain releases into your body.
Your heart is also the most powerful electromagnetic field in the body, and is able to sense the heart of another individual up to ten feet away. 🖤Look out for more posts to learn how to develop your ‘heart brain’ coherence for improved health & emotional balance🖤
Day 21... Im starting again, naturally i don't feel as strong as i did before wreccking myself last weekend. I decided to start the week with legs, specially because I knew it would be gruesome as hell. I did 7 sets of heavy squats with leg extensions on a dropset till failure and calf raises. Only was able to lift 225 on squats for 5 reps, and on the extensions I did my max of 8 reps with 220.
Then i did other 7 sets, 8 reps with the weight on the pic on the legpress, with hipthrusts and calves.
Of course, i was beaten by the time i was done. I also did forearms, abs and cardio.
I am trying to get back on track with diet and training... I don't feel bad, just tired. I lost a lot of sleep and have not a lot of nutrients, due to the bad nutrition.
The secret, is to never stop trying and always push harder. Nothing comes for free, and the price to pay is the effort, the sweat and the blood.
I took no picture of myself becuse... Well... My outfit was horrible, i was wearing some grandpa sweatpants and an old ass long sleeve shirt, i was cold and chose what was warm to train.
