  • Was not feeling a workout today but with the help of a couple coffees and a @monsterenergy Drink™️ I managed to get in there 💪🏼 75s on the military press felt decent. This caption has now got me thinking how much caffeine is too much fam? 😳😂 Cheers Monday.

  • What’s up familia 🙋🏼‍♂️🙋🏻‍♂️ it’s your brothers here! And really there’s one purpose to this post: to inspire you to set a goal to learn how to do something you don’t know how to do right now!
.
I get it! I do, because that’s what held me back for so long putting this movement of a full power clean together. I think we all have these “ceilings” that aren’t really above our heads but we buy into a story about how there’s one there so we don’t have to get uncomfortable in breaking through that ceiling.
.
Maybe it was the shoulder surgery I had 5 years ago. Or the full leg injury I had 5 years ago. Or the fact that I had never done this full movement before in my entire existence. Or maybe I didn’t want to look ridiculous teaching myself with 10 lbs on each side. The thing is I could lean on all of those “excuses” that establishes ceilings, yet that would never help me break through them.
.
I remember about 8 months ago I saw a guy doing the most fluid power clean without the squat. This is what helped piece everything together. About a month ago I saw two female high school athletes just crushing out sets of power cleans with the squat. And I think that’s what did it 😂 if they could do it why couldn’t I? Hilarious right? But that’s just it, sometimes we get in our own way and think too hard about something that should be so natural.
.
When I retrace my steps to getting good at this power clean (still lots of room to improve), the deadlift and front squat were essential to nail down, I did a little work with hang cleans and spent lots of time on the first phase of the power clean without the squat. And the squat was the last piece to get added in.
.
What ceilings can you start working toward breaking through? There’s so much opportunity for growth and progress out there for you, it’s just about getting out of your own way and going to get it! Go break through a ceiling of yours and watch that power transfer across multiple areas of your life! 🙏❤️ #thedailyfitnessfind #powerclean

👉 La recuperación es tan importante que a veces, entre dormir y entrenar es preferible dormir 🛏 ! .
👉Como explicamos varias veces, es en este momento cuando el cuerpo “crece💪🏽”, por eso mejorar la recuperación debería ser una de tus prioridades!
.
👉 Además de dormir lo suficiente y elongar bien (#mitosdeportivos 108) después del entrenamiento, para aquellos que se lo puedan permitir los masajes deportivos son una herramienta muy útil!!
.
👉 Los masajes: .
✅Contribuyen a activar la circulación sanguínea, por lo que mejora la recuperación.
.
✅Ayudan en la prevención de lesiones y recuperación de las mismas.
.
✅Relaja mente y cuerpo (disminuye el estrés)
.
✅Ayuda a disminuir el dolor corporal  postural y post ejercicio
.
👉 Finalmente, aunque la evidencia (👇) no es muy fuerte y no encontramos muchos estudios al respecto, parecería que los masajes contribuyen a incrementar la masa muscular, más que un entrenamiento en el que no son incluidos. .
👉 Tanto, como dijimos, porque constribuyen a relajar los musculos después del entrenamiento y mejoran la entrada de nutrientes en las fibras musculares, como por mejorar la síntesis de proteínas en los musculos tratados.
.
👉 Y además te ayuda a disminuir las contracturas que casi todos tenemos!
.
👉 Por lo que si podés hacerte masajes una vez por semana o cada 15 dias, no dudes en aprovecharlo!
.
👉 En Buenos Aires, les recomiendo a mi amigo @cotovazquez que también es entrenador! --

  • Monday night miles with the @manayunkbeerrunners. Tried to kick up the pace but had a hard time breathing through it. This change in weather is making my allergies flare up, and the crud in my lungs made me struggle. That’s ok. I’m happy to be completely healed from my injury and on the road back to being able to train to take down old PR’s! And always happy to spend Monday night with my people.

  • What I broke my fast with earlier after 18 and a half hours. Organic Spinach, chicken breast, 1/4 cup @tillamook cheese and 3 teaspoons of greek yogurt dressing. So simple and delicious. 😋 😋 😋

  • Your attitude = EVERYTHING 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
✨
Things to  remember:
1. You don't have to be perfect - no one is
2. Having a bad day is ok - we all have them
3. Small steps are also progress - we all had to start somewhere
4. Asking for help is a strength - everyone needs a support system
✨
& MOST importantly, stop comparing yourself to others...Look in the mirror.....THAT’S your competition 💪🏻
✨
If you need/want help getting started or just need some extra motivation to push yourself to that next level shoot me a message 📬 and let’s change your life ☺️
