FASCIAL Series ❗️
We’ve all been there. After a string of intense workouts in a row or long hours in the office, the same complaint pops up. “I’m so stiff, my muscles ache, and everything is tight!” This is definitely the case with a lot of people.
However, after getting these areas treated, often times, we may be looking too deep.
Tension in our bodies can not only be built up in our muscles, but other structures as well!
The fascial system acts as a blanket that covers and connects nearly every structure inside our bodies, including: organs, muscles, bones, nerve fibres, joint capsules, and many more. As a result, this structure plays a key role in our bodies’ mobility. If our fascia can’t move, neither can we!
Since it has so many connections within the body, we can see not only how restricted fascia affects our mobility, but our posture as well. If it's restricted, we can't move. If it's loose, we can't stand or sit properly.
Hopefully now you understand the importance of our fascial system. Stay tuned to see how you can treat it!

Chest Day is the Best Day!🙌🏼
I like using dumbbells instead of barbells sometimes because I feel like you can maneuver the dumbbells more to get that extra squeeze on the muscle 💪🏼 I didn’t have time to add the tricep workout I did with this one but I’ll try to make a vid soon!
1️⃣ Incline Dumbbell Press (4 x 8-12)
2️⃣ Flies (4 x 8-12) ss Flat Dumbbell Press (4 x 6-10)
3️⃣ Decline Dumbbell Press (4 x 8-12)
Repost because Instagram messed up one of my videos when I tried to post it yesterday 🤷🏼♀️ lol
But it’s time to build that back!! 👊🏼 One thing that I do to help keep my workouts more interesting is during each set of an exercise, I either vary the weight or the number of reps. So each set will be slightly different and feel different on my muscles. It keeps me from getting bored during my workout 💁🏼♀️
1️⃣ Lat Pull Down (4 x 8-12) ss Reverse Grip Lat Pull Down (4 x 6-10)
2️⃣ Single Arm Lat Pull Down (4 x 8-12) ss Standing Rows (4 x 6-12) - be sure to keep your core tight and keep the pressure off your lower spine
3️⃣ Seated Low Rows (4 x 8-12) ss Straight Arm Pull Downs (4 x 8-12) - this is one of my absolute favorite back supersets 🙌🏼 you’ll definitely feel the burn!
4️⃣ Bent Over Rows (4 x 6-10) - try to keep your elbow close to your body rather than holding the weight out away from you
This video is from a few weeks ago when I first tried to get back in the gym after a 5-6 month hiatus. I tried to do a set of push ups for the first time since the injury. From a guy that use to love to do explosive push ups to well... NM. This has been a super humbling experience. I know now more than ever that everything happens for a reason. I’m excited for everything that comes at me next. Time to work harder than ever and surpass where I was. Onwards and upwards! 🙏🏼💪🏼✊🏼🚀
