Happy National Diabetes Awareness Month!💉💙
I was diagnosed with 15 years and 2 months ago. Those of you who know me personally already know this, but the weird machine that you always see stuck on my arm or leg is an insulin pump (by @myomnipod). I also wear a continuous glucose monitor on my stomach (by @dexcom). I have these devices stuck on my body with tubes lodged under my skin 24/7.. and not to sound dramatic, but without them (or some way to monitor blood glucose levels and administer insulin*) I would die☠️
I am not one to beg for sympathy or look for attention, but Type 1 Diabetes is an irreversible, incurable autoimmune disease. I’ll have this sh*t for the rest of my life, man. For every minute for the rest of my life, controlling my blood sugar levels will be my number 1 priority. Diabetes doesn’t give you any breaks and doesn’t give a f**k if you want to forget about it for a few days and relax. It will always be there, and you can either deal with it or die. If you know a Type 1, give them some props for fighting the battle against their everyday🙌
P.S. Type 1 Diabetes is NOT caused by poor dietary choices, it is NOT contagious, it can NOT be fixed with some dumb voodoo vegan bullsh*t (nothing can, but I digress🐸), and Type 1 diabetics can eat and drink all the candy and ice cream and liquor they want, as long as they take insulin for it😉

💥DEADLIFT SET-UP TUTORIAL💥
⭐️Just like mom used to say “We are all special snowflakes”. When it comes to the Deadlift, this is especially true. Some of us, like @neversate, have a specific (badass) routine as we approach the bar. Some of us pull conventional, some of us pull sumo, and some of us pull using a hybrid style. There are COUNTLESS techniques we can use to control our breath. We all brace ourselves and create tension to prepare for the pull in different ways and in different orders. Our stance and hand positioning on the bar range from wide to narrow and everything in between. Some of us grip the bar double-overhanded, some of us utilize a mixed grip, and some of us use a hookgrip. All of these variables boil down to PERSONAL PREFERENCE and none are correct or incorrect.
⭐️When setting up for the Deadlift, the most important thing to remember is that we all have different body segment and lever lengths and different degrees of joint flexibility. While certain aspects must be present in our setup in order to assume an advantageous position, create sufficient leverage, and achieve a vertical bar path, the exact positions of the torso, hips, knees, and bar vary greatly from person to person due to our anthropometrics.
1️⃣HIPS are positioned LOWER than the shoulders and HIGHER than the knees
2️⃣SHOULDERS are OVER the bar, not behind
3️⃣BAR is positioned over the balls of the feels
4️⃣Feet are positioned between hip- and shoulder-width apart
5️⃣TOES are pointed slightly outward so that the knees track over the feet
6️⃣ARMS are positioned outside of the knees with the elbows fully extended and pointing out to the sides
💥Most importantly, the body is BRACED properly in the correct preparatory position with the back neutral or slightly arched, scapulae retracted, traps relaxed and stretched, and the head in line with the spine

💥STRONG, STABLE SHOULDERS💥 . Bookmark📚↗️ and don’t forget to tag a buddy who could use these movements in their programming below👇 . Stable shoulders are the key to Pressing, Snatching, and Jerking big weights. The glenohumeral (shoulder) joint is a floating joint, basically meaning that nothing is holding it together. In order to have fully functioning and strong shoulders, especially in the overhead position, the structures supporting the joint must be able to fire appropriately. Without a baseline level of strength in these supporting groups, we will never allow ourselves to move significant weight overhead correctly.💪 . The PECS, LATS, REAR DELTS, TRAPS, and various smaller muscle groups in the upper back are paramount to our success when loading overhead AND maintaining healthy shoulders in general. If we are weak or unable to recruit the correct supporting musculature, our stability overhead will be compromised. In the long term, if we are unable to place attention on these muscles, other structures will compensate, which may lead to injury.🏥🙅♀️ . Swipe 👈 to see 4 movements we use at @CCFitAZ that address these muscle groups‼️ . 1️⃣ Decline DB Press- In a declined position, there is no Pec Minor activation. The Pec Minor is a muscle that is normally overused, especially in overhead movements. 2️⃣ Single Arm Cable Row- This is a great movement for people who have trouble FEELING Lat activation. If we are unable to correctly get the Lat to fire, our overhead stability is doomed. 3️⃣ Low Band Pull-Apart- If you have the @crossoversymmetry system available for your use, consider yourself lucky! 4️⃣ Half-Kneeling Face Pull- The Face Pull is the jack-of-all-trades when it comes to shoulder health. If you struggle with over-extending the lower back when performing the Face Pull, situating ourselves in a half-kneeling position is a quick fix. . Happy Lifting!🏋️♂️ . #CCFit #ShoulderHealth #Stability #Strength #Conditioning #Type1Diabetes #T1D #T1DLooksLikeMe #RYouRogue #HereToCreate

WHAT is the Depth Jump⁉️
The Depth Jump is a plyometric movement popularized by the great Dr. Yuri Verkhoshansky in the mid-1900’s. The movement is performed by stepping off of an elevated surface, landing, and performing a max-effort vertical leap.
WHY the Depth Jump⁉️
The drop from the box forces absorption of momentum and kinetic energy before transferring it to the vertical leap. In the short-term, the vertical leap following the drop will be higher than a static jump from a standing position. In the long-term, the Depth Jump aids in decreasing the time between the affected muscle stretching and shortening (myotatic reflex). Basically, reversing the body and jumping after absorbing the force of the initial drop will force the muscles involved to fire quicker over time.
HOW do I perform the Depth Jump⁉️
1️⃣ Assume a standing position on top of an elevated surface (box, bench) with toes near the edge
2️⃣ Leading with one foot, step straight out off the box without jumping or lowering your body
3️⃣ Land on the floor with both feet simultaneously, and immediately leap vertically as high as possible
KEEP IN MIND🧠
Dropping from a surface around 30” will provide increased gains in explosive and reactive strength. Dropping from a higher surface will provide gains in maximal strength. The Depth Jump is a speed-strength movement, and is meant to be programmed at low volumes (1-2 sets, < 10 reps)

I will preface this post by saying that I hate posting “me” things, but hopefully the following tip may help one of you out there🤘
Every morning before I leave the house and every night before I go to bed, I spend a few minutes studying the sticky notes on my bathroom mirror. Written on each note is a specific thing that I believe to be paramount to my success at work, in the weight room, at home, and as a human being. Some notes are geared toward achieving short-term tasks, and some contain long-term, or even lifelong goals or philosophies. The notes aren’t fluffy or mushy. One of my notes literally says “Blood sugar is priority number 1... you won’t achieve anything if you’re dead” Being easy on yourself breeds complacency. Get truthful; lying to yourself is poison.
The most important part of this exercise is the mirror. The mirror doesn’t lie. The person staring back at me doesn’t care about excuses. I owe it to the person in the mirror to keep my word.
In the morning, I read each note and prepare myself to make every decision during the day according to these priorities. At night, I re-read each note to make sure that I took control of my day and executed each task to the best of my ability. I make sure the person looking back at me today is a better version than yesterday.
The notes on my mirror keep me accountable to my goals. In the words of @davidgoggins, who made the “Accountability Mirror” famous, “Self-improvement takes dedication and self-discipline. The dirty mirror you see every day is going to reveal the truth. Stop ignoring it. Use it to your advantage.”
