Alright ladies, 💃
I want to clarify something that I’ve been hearing A LOT about…

It has to do with ~muscles~
how you get them
& what happens when you stop lifting weights or working out, in general.

TBH, this is a topic I get pretty worked up about.
There is such a huge misconception that if you
>>LIFT HEAVY you will get BULKY>MUSCLE does NOT turn into FAT>Lifting HEAVY weights does NOT make you BULKY

Willpower is…tricky.
It has all sorts of implications and connections with morality
- as if having a lot of will power makes you a “better” person -
And thats just not true.

So many of us believe that you need to use our willpower to transform our bodies with fitness & nutrition.
Thats correct. We DO need to use willpower to resist the temptations of candy, breadsticks, and skipping our workouts.

But you know what makes it really, super hard to exercise willpower?

Do I have to do abs every day?
Should I do abs before or after a workout?
tellmeallofthethings!

Lets break it down:
How often do I need to do abs (to have a strong core)?
1. You can do core as often as you like
2. you’re never going to suffer from a core that is too strong - thats not really a thing

Before or after your workout?
1. Ideally, you want to warm up your core before you get into your main workout; especially if you are squatting heavy or doing anything overhead
* You can simply do a plank for 2-3 rounds of 20-30 second; doesn’t have to totally gas you, just get you warmed up and activated
2. You can also do a core circuit at the end of your workout, if you so choose.
3. Typically (if you are doing them correctly) squats, deadlifts, and other dynamic movement will pretty heavily involve your core, so doing an additional core circuit at the end of a workout might not be super necessary, but is totally fine.
4. If you are doing more of a bodybuilding type workout (I.e. specific body parts like curls, hamstring curl machine; basically any machine), then a core circuit anywhere in the workout is fine.
5. Sprinkling core exercises thought your workout/circuit perfectly acceptable as well.

First things first:
- Don’t need to do a ton of crunches to get a strong core; for a strong core, what you need is stability
- Leg lifts mostly use you hip flexors (until you pass 90 degrees)
- most people don’t need that to strengthen their hip flexors
- most of us sit for most of the day, so ‘strengthening’ our hip flexors basically just make stem tighter…which makes this (very likely) worse.
- Crunches, sit-ups, etc. mostly just do a lot of spinal flexion and really on work your re**us abdominus (the pretty show muscles)
- This much flexion is typically really bad for people with low back pain; you’re basically just reinforcing the hip flexion you already do all day at your desk
- Twisting is a no-go as well; this will not define your obliques or give you that hourglass shape you are looking for, it literally just twists your spine and puts strain on it. gross.

Heres whatcha gotta do for a strong core:
1. Straight torso:
1. Plank variations
* traditional
* Feet/hands on ball
* circular motion with forearms on ball
* Feet/hands elevated
* Plank & lift one or two limbs at a time
* unstable surface
2. Standing
* Anti-rotation movements (aka not allowing your torso to twist when something is pulling it in that direction)
* stir pot (circular motion) with cable/band
* pump (hold band in front of chest; move arms out until fully extended; return back)
* asymmetrical carries (farmer’s carries holding weight on one side for exercise)
3. pivot
* adding in glutes with a pivot
* High-to-low chops
* Low-to-high chops
4. Bird dogs, dead bugs, leg lower

And I hate to break it to y’all, but lemme drop some knowledge:
That “back extension machine” is actually a Glute/Hammy raise machine.
Please don’t “strengthen” your back that way. just…please don’t.

{and to clarify? Having a 6 pack is about being lean, not doing as many crunches/sit-ups/etc. until you can no longer move. Unfortunately it's doesn't work that way, my friends.}

{second clarification: a 6 pack is not the picture of health; just because a person has the coveted lean torso with the 'right' ripples, doesn't mean they are stronger or superior or better at fitness or dieting than you - or anyone else.}


Happy Friday, friends!

Talk to me! Do you do core/ab training every day?

Life is all about balance 🤸🏼‍♀️
Some days you eat broccoli 🌳 & some days you eat pizza 🍕

Today I got kicked out of the gym (because there was a gas leak in the building ☠️) 20 minutes into my workout.

But today life ~also~ handed me an afternoon off from work and some quality time with some quality friends 👌🏼
In my past life (the obsessed, neurotic, track-all-of-the-foods Kenzee), I would have just gone to a different gym to finish my workout and chosen to forego the fun time & delicious food.

No, pizza is not #keto or #paleo or #glutenfree BUT if food could be a spirit animal, pizza would be mine 🍕✨

All of that to say, in life, sometime we gotta let loose. YES, eat your veggies 🥕 and proteins 🍗 and fats 🥑, but remember to let yourself have some fun every once in a while.

80/20 daily, weekly, monthly...whatever works for you!
Give yourself grace & remember that every day is a new day to take one step closer to a happier, healthier you ☀️
p.s. Check out that cheese string 🤤😏
