Hi everyone!!! I'm looking for a new pass-buddy to split the Arc's monthly community parking pass! It's $26 overall, so $13 to split :) Would anyone be interested? If so - you can message me directly. ☺️
Hi everyone!!! Just wanted to say I’m super jazzed about being back with the program, and it’s been such a positive change. One thing I’m really trying to work on, well, two actually... - I am trying to incorporate protein into at least 2/3 main meals a day, and I am aiming to get better sleep!!! Which isn’t working out because it’s 4:45am and I’ve been up since 4 now... HAHAHA OH WELL!

Any suggestions for yummy protein rich meals and/or things you do to wind down before bed? Thanks!!!! ✨
i was thinking about your push ups post... i did man makers to pull ups this morning...
Hi all! I wanted to consult the hive mind about pain management. The osteomylitis in my ankle really gets in the way of being active- some days it hurts like heck just kicking in the swimming pool!

I've been good about my fish oil and other Omega3/Omega6 sources; Sacha Inchi seeds are a particular favorite of mine right now.

I am deathly afraid of opioids, but I have been known to take one on "special occasions" (fear not, the 30 dose prescription I got has lasted me 8 months thus far and I still have 9 doses left). Most of the time, I stick with Tylenol Arthritis.

I have thought about a 925-form prescription and buying edibles, but I'm still uncomfortable with that idea.

I have tried collagen, turmeric/curcumin (usually with some type of piperine for better absorption), and this herbal supplement I found at Windmill Farms that contained a battery of different herbs in it- I'm still not seeing much success at pain reduction.

Ironically. I hurt less when I move, until I hit the wall and then it just hurts, period. I don't believe I'm moving enough to help with the weight loss I need, though I do as much as I can each day.

I have heard some raves about green-lipped mussel powder, but I worry about the fad aspect, since there is no science that I can find to back this up. Any thoughts?

Another article up for @acefitness this week. It’s great to be able to share what I’ve learned with a larger audience to help more people move better, feel good, and get stronger.

In this article I discuss some thoracic mobility exercises that can help improve movement through the upper back and keep your shoulders feeling healthy. These are all the more important as you spend more time sitting for work, or driving, or scrolling your phone. ;-)

Go check it out at: https://www.acefitness.org/education-and-resources/professional/expert-articles/7960/thoracic-mobility-exercises-to-address-shoulder-pain/

Just get doin’.
Start with whatever you like or have access to and go from there. All that matters is you get started and keep moving.
It’s gonna get messed up and you may lose your rhythm. It doesn’t matter, brush it off and keep going.

Send me a dm if you need a little nudge to get things rolling.

Don’t underestimate the power of practicing small changes consistently.
When you start with small actions that you can practice consistently, that practice begins to develop into skills and habits. Suddenly you may find yourself doing a little more just because you can or in some cases because you actually want to.

Go for that short walk outside.

Stretch while you wait for the microwave to do it’s thing.

Do a few push ups to a countertop.

It all adds up. I try to encourage every Strong Made Simple client to be an opportunistic exerciser and start with something that matches their current skill level. If you want to learn more about training programs send me a DM.

Getting in shape isn’t the outcome of one grand goal. It happens when you improve on lots of smaller goals.

This is actually old news. Smart people have been saying it for 100s of years. I put a collection of phrases from these old smarty pants over on the blog. Check it out at this link: https://strongmadesimple.com/blog/small-actions-and-big-successes

Recovering between sets is an important part of training for strength it allows your muscles and nervous system to recover so that you can exert your your best effort repeatedly. That’s how you practice and improve for strength.

If you turn every workout into a circuit or nonstop HIIT workout, you won’t be able practicing producing as much force with your movement and you will not gain nearly as much strength.

It’s ok if you’re not constantly out of breath. Strength training isn’t cardio. You are getting stronger by resting.

This exercise will help you initiate the pull up from the lowest part of the hang.

Being able to hang and actively pull your shoulder blades down helps you place your shoulders into a better position for the big muscles of the upper back to produce more force in the pull up.

More force = more likely to pull yourself up.

This is one more step toward performing your first pull up or getting better at doing pull ups. It’s also just good for your shoulders and grip.

Try incorporating some active hanging or depressions for reps I. Your next workout.

You can rarely go wrong with more veggies and greens in your diet.

This is a simple salad of a bay spinach, arugula, and grape tomatoes.

Topped it off with everything but the bagel seasoning olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Easy!

Regular cardiovascular exercise will enhance your overall work capacity and ability to recover from strength training.

If you’re not doing an extreme amount of cardio or intensity, the adaptations from most cardiovascular exercise is only going to enhance your overall training efforts.

If you’re only lifting because you don’t enjoy cardiovascular exercise you can try incorporating more non-exercise activities to also improve your cardiovascular fitness.

As you become more fit your ability to recover between sets of resistance training will improve. This will only help you with your gains.

What’s your favorite type of cardiovascular exercise?
