  • 3 Tips to Improve Your Plank & Work Your Abs Harder.... Planks aren’t really in vogue within the fitness world right now because, well, they’re not exactly ‘sexy’. However, they are still a really great exercise to develop strength through your core IF performed properly. 
One of the biggest mistakes people often make is just ‘hanging out’ and having no intent when performing a plank.

Try these 3 tips.... 1. Try to drag your elbows back towards your feet (your elbows shouldn’t actually move - it’s just the intent).
2. Imagine you are wearing a belt. Imaging pulling your belt buckle toward your chin. This is what you need to do with your hips whilst simultaneously squeezing your glutes.
3. Push your feet into the floor, lock your legs out and squeeze your quads.

Now it should feel like your whole body is ‘tight’ and you are actively creating tension, as opposed to passively lying there.

Hope these tips help guys 👍

  • A little core workout I did today in addition to legs. My core is terrible..ever since having children I didn't pay attention to getting my core strength back.. Oh well, I'm here now so let's just keep moving forward. This workout can be done anywhere, with or without the weights, and no jumping or high intensive moves but you'll still feel the burn and sweat a lot!

  • Okay SO....some things to point out here.
1) Yes I evidently wear this sports bra lots. I like it. I wash it every time I wear it. I am a clean person 👀
2) Yes my abs are weird lookin’ and wonky. Oh well
3) The first photo was taken more recently on the 8th December. The second was taken on the 1st December. So exactly 1 week apart and it’s all thanks to skinny tea. I’M JOKING, skinny tea is the devil’s spawn and should be banned. (I work with brands but would never, ever promote anything I don’t agree with or believe in. Just wanted to point that out.) Anyway, what this abs change is really down to is:
- No change in diet
- No change in exercise
- That the first photo was taken immediately after I worked my abs out, really freakin hard. With all that blood pumping to the muscles, it gives an illusion of big, pretty defined abs, when in reality what I see day to day is what you see in photo 2.
.
I’m sharing this because I’m sad and angry that I know that young girls in particular see photos of people on IG they believe to be genuine, normal people, and feel unworthy because those people are too selfish to be honest and admit that that’s not what they really look like, especially day to day. They set ridiculous, unobtainable standards and make others actually feel depressed. While I don’t want to be a neggy nigel all the time, I do hope that by having my occasional rants some of you/them will realise that you/they’re aspiring to be like something that isn’t even real. Angles, timings, lighting, filters, makeup, clothing, recent food habits, camera quality, editing and more all mean you mustn’t believe everything you see, nor let it get to you, nor respect it blindly.

  • 35 Gründe warum du „Core“ Training machen solltest!☝🏼. Nein, es folgt keine Auflistung von unglaublichen 35 aus den Haaren herbei gezogenen Gründen… Es geht um die 35 unterschiedlichen Muskeln die unseren „Core“ ausmachen. 💁🏼‍♂️ Unser Core schützt und stabilisiert die Wirbelsäule und wird trainingswissenschaftlich als der Bereich zwischen Beckenboden und Diaphragma (Rippenbogen) definiert. Man könnte also ganz vereinfacht von Bauchmuskeltraining sprechen. Wenn die meisten aber Bauchmuskeltraining hören, dann geht es letztendlich nur um das klassische Sixpack oder noch genauer den „Rectus abdominis“. Was ist die klassischste aller Bauchübung dafür? Der Crunch oder auch Sit up. Einer aus 35 🤷🏼‍♀️… keine gute Quote für einen stabilen Core. Ein ganzheitliches und sinnvolles Core-Training verfolgt das Ziel, Kontrolle über seinen gesamten Core zu erlange. Also 360° zwischen Rippenbogen und Beckenboden. Übrigens einer der effektivsten Wege sich gegen Rückenschmerzen zu schützen, wenn richtig ausgeführt! ☝🏼 Wer eh schon Probleme mit dem unteren Rücken hat, sollte dringendst Sit Ups & Crunches aus seinem Gedächtnis löschen und sich von uns wirklich effektive Übungen zeigen lassen, die nicht nur euren Core stärken, sondern auch effektiver sind!

  • Can core work be restful? I’d say yes if we redefined what restful means. Restmas celebrates all kinds of rest and it’s not always about lying around and relaxing (though that’s always a lovely option!) _
•
_
To me, rest equals a feeling of restoration. And there are a lot of things in my life that give me that feeling. Lately I’m loving a sense of playfulness; dancing around the house to my favourite music, being silly with my loved ones. That energizes me and is fully part of the Restmas celebrations.

_
Back to core work. When we can approach our movement from a place of playful explorations, then we’re enjoying the process, we become more restored rather than drained from the practice.

_
✨I highly encourage you to bring more play into your day, your chores, your yoga practice, reframing what rest looks and feels like✨ How do you incorporate play into your life? Share with us in the comments! 
_
This is a clip from a recent class in the Heart + Bones online studio called, “The Most FUN Core Class Ever” And the feedback so far is a resounding yes to that!

.
First and foremost, dance fitness stands out from technical or traditional dance in that technique and intricate choreography aren't the focus. Participants don't spend weeks or months perfecting a single routine in anticipation of a show or recital; rather, they show up, work up a sweat while doing their best to follow an instructor, and leave feeling good about their workout 💪

This in an absolute game changer for me.
🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪 Drill for opening across the shoulders and chest whilst strengthening and stabilising the core and lumbar spine. Compression between the shoulder blades can get pretty intense so start with the knees on the floor - then work to knees lifted - and then to 1 leg pulses to isolate the two sides of the back.  Be cautious of any compression in the lower back 
TUCK THE TAILBONE UNDER and SQUEEZE THE PEACH 🍑 LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT BASICALLY 😂

Mucking about at the gym and using equipment in an unusual way is how I figure out the maddest game changers for handstand conditioning.

  • So my friends and colleagues @openmindfitness and @samanthamilk threw out this challenge. Hands and feet on the physioball and stabilize. Happy to accept and raise you 5 push-ups.
Who’s next? Raise the bar again. 
Didn’t have any of my own physioballs so I borrowed my kids! Use whatcha got.

  • These should definitely be staple movements in everyone's routine and should be at a good standard before even touching resistance machines. But hey that's just my thoughts. 😉🦁

  • There is an over abundance of caution for exercise during pregnancy-let me clarify. You can absolutely and should exercise even in late term. Except, modification should be made. Here are two big moves which will help with birth prep and infant care. #postpartum #prenatalworkout #pregnancyexercise #coachingpregnantwomen #trainertips #sahm #pronatalfitness #definedfitness #womenwholift #prenatalfitness #newmoms #newmommylife #corestrength #laborprep
.
.
Birthing squat-deep squat 
Start on all fours and push back into a squat position. Play around with twists in this position and work both sides
.
.
Reverse fly-Once the baby is born, our shoulders spend much time in a rounded position picking up babe and nursing, causing upper back and neck pain. Counter this with reverse flys targeting the back or arms and shoulders. How to: hold onto a chair or back of couch, weight in opposite hand and bend over slightly. Keeping your arm straight raise the weight squeezing your shoulder. Repeat opposite side.

  • Show up for life. The good times, the bad times. All of it. Feel all of it. Learn from all of it. Embrace all of it. This, right now is your life. Not an idea of what the future may bring. Today, right now, this is your life. Are you fully living it? Or living for the idea of what it might become?

  • This past weekend, @reneechoiphotography was in LA and we had the best time! It had been over a year since I had seen Renee and it was like no time had passed at all. On Friday evening, the rain held out and we got to shoot/play with @susievanessayoga and @georgia.bryan and even though both of them are much much more bendy than I am, I’m (barely!) holding my own in this triple shot. We had such a fun time even in the cold wind and of course Renee got the most epic shots!
Georgia and Susie, get ready for the next time Renee is in town because I’ll be working on my back flexibility until then! @cirqueschool here I come 🤸🏻‍♀️

  • TUCK PLANCHE PUSH UPS -

If Straddle Planche is goal, you’ll want to add these into your arsenal as it will help you increase both your straight arm pressing strength as well as your bent arm pressing strength through your full range of motion. Even if straddle Planche isn’t your goal, working up towards Tuck Planche Push ups will help you increase core strength and mobility for pushing movements. -

A lot of people find difficulty lifting their feet off of the floor to Tuck Planche. It’s a difficult movement and It’s definitely not something you want to just jump into. Jump into in the sense of you don’t want to advance too soon but also you don’t want to rely on jumping with your lower body to Tuck Planche. It all comes from leaning forward more. You’ll need a good amount of flexibility in the wrists and strength in the shoulders and midsection to do this. -

To make it easier on your wrists you can use Parallettes. Training on the Parallettes allows you to practice arm balances with your hands in a closed fist position, holding on to something. By changing the angle of the load on the wrist, you can begin practicing skills and finding your balance. -

The following progressions demonstrated by GMB Trainer Eduardo @eorihuela will help you increase your pushing strength and bring you one strep closer to Straddle Planche. -

1. Inclined 
2. Push ups 
3. Forward leaning push ups 
4. Tuck Planche Push ups negative on floor 
5. Tuck Planche Push ups on floor 
6. Tuck Planche negative on parallettes 
7. Tuck Planche Push ups -

Quick Tip: 
1. Work the movements and do not rush the process. 
2. Understand your protraction and forward lean as you perform your progressions.
3. Work your wrist flexibility! .
