hey hey! here is a [ quick ] lower ab circuit I added to the end of my shoulder session today!
This is a great little circuit to add to the end of any workout to get your abs firing 🔥
Perform 12 reps of each exercise, one right after the other, rest for 1 minute, and repeat for a total of 3-5 times.
What are you working today? Let me know below if you give this one a try and how you are feeling the next day!
This vid shows a short clip of each of the 3 moves I do every day (standalone or in my warmup) 💪❤️ ...descriptions below...
. . .
So I have that anterior pelvic tilt 🤫 ... my booty just likes to pop, always has 🤷♀️ ... but every day, I work on really activating my lower abdominals so whenever I lift, run, or do anything, my booty doesn’t pop, b/c putting all the work on my low back is so not a-okay 👎 . . .
The moves... •Band back press x10
—engage pelvic floor and lower abdominals to press low back against band into floor •Leg lowers 5x4
—hug yoga block between heels, lower heels to floor and think about lower abdominals pulling knees back over hips, extend legs further each rep for 5 & then repeat 4x •RKC Plank x15 breath cycles —think elbows and toes hugging toward each other, squeeeeeze your glutes, and use long forceful exhales to draw abdominals in (hip bones toward low ribs)

Core & shoulder stability 🔥 (check last post for meet up details)
Being 12 weeks PP I’ve been incorporating tons of core work into my workouts to continue strengthening my core while also being patient and healing the weakening I had in my linea alba pre-pregnancy. I am still modifying and being cautious with core/ab work even tho “I can do it.” In the long run it will allow me to go further and safely.🙌🏽 .
If I can’t control inta-abdominal pressure in exercises i stop and modify as controlling that intra abdominal pressure is key to healing any weakening in the connective tissue and closing Diastasis Recti or creating functional Diastasis🙏🏼
Make sure your TVA ( transverse abdominus) is engaged properly the entire exercise! There’s little to no motion in your neutral spine and the only movement is through your shoulders( i have work to do still on this 😊)
My core guide teaches proper engagement and is in the link in my bio! ♥️
For those following my guide you’ll be doing the @thebloommethod
active core breath with deep core activations during this core circuit!
If you dome, lose engagement with your TVA or have uncomfortable tension modify and go to your knees.
Always modify any exercise:
👉🏽That causes doming
👉🏽A rounding of your stomach vs a flat stomach appearance
👉🏽Your lower back arches and comes off the ground in ab work where you’re laying down. Ouch.
👉🏽 Have pain and uncomfortable tension
🗣It’s not worth the damage done to your linea alba and you’re truly not working your abs or core if your form is off.
If you feel ab exercises in your back that’s a common sign proper engagement is NOT happening! ♥️
P.S can’t wait to meet some of you Saturday at the meet up!!!

💭 Olhe para o seu interior e permita-se sentir admiração por si mesmo todos os dias, mas nunca deixe o seu orgulho cegar a sua visão. A vida perde o sentido quando você não consegue ver o quanto tem a aprender e o quanto pode evoluir. - Thiago Tombini 💭
The fight for six pack abs never ends!
While doing exercises can certainly help to get your abs and definition she still must always keep in mind that abs will come out with a lower body fat percentage. The key is always lower body fat.
That doesn't mean you can't do exercises to help them as this picture shows you can work the upper lower and your obliques.
Use these exercises in conjunction with your locked in diet while you reduce your body fat percentage and your abs will begin to show.

Post purement personnel (si c'est éducatif tant mieux). Ce que m'apportent les postures d'équilibre ; •Focus ; si l'on pense à ses courriels, aux tâches à faire, à la semaine prévue, à la date qui s'en vient etc ... Notre équilibre nous le mettra au visage et fort possible que l'on tombe. L'équilibre nous aide à rester focus!
Si vous êtes comme moi, votre petit hamster roule toujours. Personnellement et professionnellement. Apprendre à se concentrer sur un objet fixe est un entraînement en soi! Et le plus difficile, bien qu'il semble le plus facile. C'est le principe de la méditation. Donc, l'équilibre et un "flow de Yoga" est une méditation en soi, selon moi.
•Travail des stabilisateurs ; je le dis et le redis, vos stabilisateurs ADORENT les postures d'équilibre. Ils sont enfin sollicités ! Points bonus si vous êtes en mesure (dans les postures debout) de ne pas laisser la hanche s'affaisser. •Humilité ; je dit souvent dans mes classes et mes billets que le Yoga nous "apprends à tomber". Lorsque nous faisons des postures d'équilibre, lorsque nous tombons, nous travaillerons tout de même nos stabilisateurs à "juste essayer de se mettre dans la pose". Mais le travail le plus intéressant est celui-ci ; Comment vous relevez-vous?
Si vous prenez cela à la rigolade et vous contrôlez votre mindset, vous relèverez et maintiendrez la pose ensuite beaucoup plus facilement. Si vous vous fâchez, et bien devinez quoi?
Vous risquez de retomber.
Vous êtes impatient ?
Vous risquez de retomber.
La poses d'équilibre debout me communiquent "prends cela à la légère et sloooooooooow down".

"A well built physique is a status symbol. It reflects you worked hard for it, no money can buy it. You cannot borrow it, you cannot inherit it, you cannot steal it. You cannot hold onto it without constant work. It shows discipline, it shows self respect, it shows patience, work ethic and passion. That is why I do what I do."-Arnold Schwarzenegger
My new favourite stability exercise. #corework
A cable press and a fly from a split stance. The resistance doesn’t need to be heavy to be effective, just smooth (smoother than the video), tight and controlled with the right tempo. It’s all about feeling the work. Try it out!
I am absolutely loving what the universe is demanding of me for this next version of my life! 🌱#fitandheal
For the few seconds this lasted, it was worth it 😎. Forever progressing. Have a blessed one folks!
I know this is not what’s meant when using the #onwednesdayswedropback
hashtag but I think it’s sort of a drop back as well 😄🤣 Just another way, but in many ways just as scary and challenging.
When I look at this I’m so proud of how stable I have become at this, and I didn’t realize until I saw the video how close my fingers actually are to my feet! I’m so happy and grateful for all the progress I feel in my heart opening and backbend practice 💕 And this was actually “my other good side 😆 There is still a lot of work to be done, but at least I’m on some sort of a path 🌸🙏🏻
In honor of #raceday
coming up on Saturday I wanted to highlight my last “perfect” race - the Baytown Jailbreak Run in 2017. This was my first sub 2:00 half marathon and I remember feeling so strong the last few miles. The weather was perfect and I just cruised the whole time. In 2016 I ran the same race in 2:17, so it was a huge PR for me. The 2016 race was right around the time I was diagnosed with RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) and was experiencing some pretty crippling foot pain. Come to find out it was just most of the joints in my feet eroding 😳🤷♀️. I am so, so lucky that after about two and a half years of experimenting with medications, diet, treatments, etc. I rarely experience symptoms anymore. When I am in a routine and training for something is when I feel my best, which is a huge part of why I am always looking for the next challenge.
