💖Back of hand push-ups...a “skill” to be learned or a way to express newly developed resources? Read on...
I had a blast chatting with yesterday. If you don’t already, give her a follow because she’s awesome and incredibly smart (PhD student in Nutrition and Integrated Physiology) and loves data even more than I do 🤓. _
We chatted all things training, from modalities and how much time we should spend on different areas, how much ego has to play in where we spend our time, and more.
To answer the question at the top of this post, I believe that if you can focus on developing the resources to move better first, you’ll become stronger at conventional exercises AND be able to express your progress with fun things like back of hand push-ups, pistol squats, handstands, and more. Jenna was inclined to agree.

I just had a random thought and it sparked a topic of "diet culture" that I want to chat about for a second...
Isn't it funny and also a tad demonetising that "diets" are frowned upon by half the population and that some people are so quick to judge those who like to eat healthily? Even though most people start a "diet" so that they can better themselves mentally, physically and so that they are able to live a longer healthier and happier life
As soon as you order almond milk in your coffee or a smashed avo at breakfast, people just assume "oh she's on a diet", "she must be starving", "diets don't work"etc etc. I would just like to crush that little stereotype in the butt 👊🏻 okkkr
Yes, some people definitely do follow a particular dietary lifestyle choice! Whether that be vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, keto, paleo and so on, but that doesn't mean that we starve ourselves and ONLY eat healthy 24/7. I think a lot of people who aren't into health & fitness just assume that all we eat is celery sticks and hummus, but I'm here to tell you that life is all about B A L A N C E baby
Drink your turmeric latte, have your chicken, rice & broccoli and down that protein shake...But also remember to eat that chocolate bar, drink that wine and scoff that bag of chips you have been drooling over all week. There are no rules when it comes to "eating healthy". You don't have to track calories or macros if you don't want to. You don't have to eat the same boring meal and cut out carbs. You don't have to curb that sweet tooth with 90% dark chocolate that's bitter af
Enjoy ALL foods and don't let this so called "diet culture" run your every day move. Live your life and enjoy everything in moderation! Think of it this way, 20 years from now are you going to be sad that you had one incy bincy pizza at your bestfriend's birthday, or will you regret that you didn't attend because you were on a "diet"? Some food for thought (get it, get it 😏) 💭🍓🍌🥝🍟🍔🍕🌭🥗🍭🍫🍦🍪
