Being healthy can look many different ways ✅

If you’re struggling to find your own pathway to health, looking toward the subtle changes may make a large difference.

Here’s 5 things you can do to start creating a healthier body today:

1. Add 1000 more steps to your day (about 10 min of walking)

2. Take 5 min to slow down your breathing (in through your nose, slow out your mouth)

3. Drink a half OZ of water for each LB of bodyweight

4. Add 1-2 closed fist sized servings of dark leafy greens to one meal today

5. Do a 10 minute, moderate intensity workout (feels light to somewhat hard)

If you have questions on how you can reclaim your health, send us a message with your questions.

Strength training and conditioning, or ANY exercise and intentional movement, goes beyond looks.

I think we’re conditioned to feel that people start exercising to change the look of their body.

So much so, that when a new client sits down with a trainer, they instinctively respond to the “what is your goal?” Question with:

I’d like to lose some weight and see more tone.

While this may be true on some level, I find more times than not their deeper motives are something like:

I’m tired of of saying no to things because I’m scared I can’t physically do it.

My body hurts in ways that concern me and I don’t want to end up in the situation I see my parents in now.

My health feels like it’s out of my control and I’m scared of what will happen if I don’t reclaim that control.

Ooph that’s heavy. 😤

Uncomfortable problems to face. But it’s a reality for many.

So if being muscular or shredded isn’t your thing, cool! I respect that.

Let’s talk about how exercise can help you reclaim your health instead.

What else would you add to this list?

My perspective as a coach is that people often push too hard too often and that results in inconsistent workouts, which hinders results.

I’d add a 5th to this list and say you should leave most workouts feeling like you could have done a little more.

Leaving every workout feeling completely torched will likely leave you under recovered, and may cause you to skip workouts.

Consistency isn’t as sexy as going ham, but it is much more important when it comes to getting results.

Mindset Monday 🧠

Set your definition of success in the process, not just the outcome.

Let's take a moment to redefine what it means to be a "beast".

Subscribe to the All Around Beast newsletter here:
http://strivept-1.hubspotpagebuilder.com/strive-pt

Typically the person that goes in the gym, is super fit, and can crush a workout is the person that gets called a "beast". I think being a beast is a mentality, though.

It's the mentality of discipline. Placing emphasis on all aspects of fitness (movement, mobility, mindset, and nutrition) and continually looking for ways to level up in those areas.

The healthiest people have a balance between workouts that challenge their limits and movement sessions that restore their body. They have a healthy relationship with food and are able to enjoy foods that nourish them and go to social outings without having stress about what foods they should and shouldn't eat.

All of this starts with a mindset of growth, which is knowing what you are currently capable of does not define what your limitations are. These are the characteristics that make someone a true all around beast.

At Strive PT this focus is what we promote. It's also what we'll be talking about in our monthly newsletter. If you want exercises and information you can apply directly to your life to become an all around beast, click on the link above to subscribe!

Progressing a movement can be done in more ways than adding more weight.

A larger range of motion, how you perform the movement, and where you are holding the weight in relation to your center of mass, are a few of the ways you can progress a movement to make it more challenging without lifting more weight.

At Strive we like to progress range of motion before we progress the weight being lifted.

This allows our clients to develop a strong foundation of strength and stability with a movement before adding weight or speed.

TFL Release 😮‍💨

The Tensor Fascia Latae (TFL) is a commonly overactive muscle and usually is a result of under active, or weak, glute med/max.

Before getting into strength work or activation exercises to improve the function and strength of the glutes, it can be helpful to release the TFL to decrease discomfort and tightness.

Once you’ve got the ball in place, shown in the video, search for the most tender spot and hold on it until you feel a release or decrease in sensitivity.

If the lacrosse ball is painful, you can start with a foam roller to decrease the initial sensitivity, and after a few sessions, try to progress to a ball.

I love the ambition people have when they start training, and I think there’s a ton of power to pointing that enthusiasm in the right direction. 💪🏻

Exercise is only part of making progress, and a program needs to be balanced with good quality movement, strength training, and have intensity with intention.

Assaulting your body with intensity is just unnecessary and counterproductive in most cases.

Place that energy and time on other elements like improving your nutrition and sleep so that your body can recover and THEN build back stronger after working out.

Heading to NC tomorrow to film another batch of workouts with my people!

I joked with last time that it’s fun to put on my superhero cape for the weekend. 😂😂

That’s more about the fun environment that Doc has created than it is about me though. 🙌

Grateful to be flying out again to work with some wonderful people!

🔥Mobility Movement of the Week 🔥

~ 𝐖𝐡𝐲 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐝𝐨 𝐢𝐭 ~

This mimics the biomechanics of walking/running. When your hip extends (goes backwards) the same side shoulder flexes (reaches forward or up). This happens along with thoracic (upper back) rotation away from the extended hip.

~ 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬 ~

Stretches the shoulder (lats, pecs), the upper spine, the glute of the bottom leg, the hip flexors of the top leg.

~ 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐨 𝐢𝐭 ~

Lay on your side with your legs at 90/90.

Squeeze the glute of your top leg and press your hand into a glider with your thumb facing the ceiling.

Glide at a diagonal, or overhead, or out to the side, while letting your torso rotate down towards the ground.

~ 𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐨 𝐢𝐭 ~

As part of a warmup that will require mobility in the hips or shoulders or during a workout as active rest.

If you’re a runner, this is great for movement prep!

There’s endless applications, so don’t feel like yours will be wrong. 👊🏻

Do your workouts have a plan behind them?

If you write your own workouts that responsibility’s on you! If you go to a trainer, that responsibility is on them!

Either way it’s important to have a plan. Random workouts get random results, and if you have goals, a workout program is the most effective way of achieving them.

What’s your opinion on this? Do you have any questions? If so, leave them in the comments for me and let’s talk!

11/04/2021

Here’s a great core circuit to finish off a workout or to use as a quick 12-20 minute workout.

Each movement is 30 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of rest between exercises.

Do 3-4 rounds and rest 60 seconds after each round to maintain good quality movements.

1. Hollow body rocks
2. Low plank hold
3. Single leg v-up
4. Side plank reach through

It’s important to feel your abs doing the work in each movement!

If you feel your lower back, take rest, focus on bracing your abs (slightly drawing in your stomach to tighten) and see if there’s a difference.

If you still feel your back you’re likely fatigued and would benefit more from stopping. Keep track of how far you got into the workout and try to get further next time!

I got a request for cardio without jumping, so lets talk about that!

Training with weights and cardio doesn’t have to be a separate part of your workout.

You can get a killer strength/endurance session in while also keeping your heart rate up in a range that would be considered “cardio” to anyone.

This workout alternates upper and lower body movements so you can “rest” one muscle group while another one works.

This lets you move from one exercise to the next with no rest, which is what keeps your heart rate up.

This is only one example. If your goals are more strength, then increase the weights and decrease the reps to a 6-12 rep range. You’ll still have an amazing weight/cardio session.

Try this for 3 rounds and make sure the weights you use allow you to get 15 reps without form breaking down. 👊🏻

1. DB Thruster
2. DB row
3. Split squat
4. Push ups
5. Single leg RDL

If you try this out let me know how it goes!

The word for this year seems to be “opportunity”.

Sometimes taking an opportunity can be scary, and in this instance, it IS!

Getting in front of a camera takes me WAY out of my comfort zone but I can’t wait to share the training style I developed at through another medium.

I’m a founding instructor and SO grateful that gave me this opportunity. 🙏🏼

Lyfe at Home is an on demand fitness platform that is expected to launch this January. If your health and wellness is important to you, follow and be ready to join us in January!

🎉I’m excited to finally share the news! 🎉

I’m now a part owner of Strive! 🎊

Im so grateful for all of the guidance and opportunities Shveta has given me.

I wouldn’t have the knowledge I do without her investing time in me and answering my endless questions. 😂

Shveta genuinely cares for others and you can tell by the amount of time and effort she invests in educating and mentoring the people around her.

You’ll get that same energy from anyone at Strive and that’s why I’m proud to be her business partner!

This year has been a big year for change and growth and a big thank you goes to my wife for supporting me through it ❤️. I couldn’t do it without you!

I’m looking forward to what the next year of growth brings!

🔥Advanced Metcon 🔥

This is a simple but savage one.

10 round EMOM
Odd minutes: 5 clean and jerks
Even minutes: 15 wall balls

In CrossFit wall balls are typically done to a 9’ target with a 14lb ball for women and a 10’ target with a 20lb ball for men.

You should pick a challenging weight on both movements that you can do unbroken with good form.

If you do that then you will be feeling all the good things in this one!

Tag someone you want to try this with! 💪🏻👊🏻

💥 Mobility Combo of the Week 💥

1️⃣ Lat/Subscap Roll

- roll slowly and breath as you work through any tender spots

2️⃣ Lat stretch with T-Spine rotation

- Lat flexibility and t-spine mobility are two important things to have for anything overhead. If you struggle with overhead squats, overhead press, or handstands, then these two movements will help improve your ability in these movements.

Try these out, or tag someone you think could benefit from this! 🙌

What areas do you think you struggle with mobility in?

If you're trying to build your glutes then you'll want to try this for tweak. 🔥

If you're just feeling the music then keep doing you. 😂😂

We've all seen people backing it up during their squat pulse, sometimes intentionally... I could tag a few people haha

Other times it's a result of fatigue! Just letting your hips rise makes it easier on the targeted muscles and leaves your glutes out of the movement.

This not only goes for the squat pulse, but also for any squat variant. You want your hips and shoulders to rise at the same time to maximize your glute involvement.

Try it out and see how it feels!
