Just a little L-Sit in the office😈. #Calisthenics is an any location type of discipline with multiple purposes.
Getting in shape is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to benefits.
For instance if you find yourself falling into a nap pop into an #Lsit like me or do push-ups or dips. Once you tense those muscles and get that blood flowing you mind follows and takes away the drowsiness💤😴
En ce beau jour férié 🌞 j'en ai profité pour aller courir 👟 dans la nature qui m'entoure 🌳 à l'arrivée je suis très fière de moi 😁 Partie pour faire 5 kms je me suis dépassée et ai battu mon record personnel 💪
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS... 👇Comment below👇⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my most recent article (which you can read by clicking the link @tj.strength in the blog) I asked you to question your motives...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A lot of people do some very strange things in the gym in the name of improvement... but for some reason, we think that simply looking a lot better isn't "enough".⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have to be "functional" or "strong" or whatever. In my mind this brings out two points:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☝️Good luck training to get into great shape without improving your movement and strength - it will happen anyway...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✌️If performance is all you care about, then why are the most popular athletes not necessarily the best ones, but the ones who look the best?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(I'll admit these are a bit cherry-picked, but the point still remains)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't get caught into the trap that your "why" had to be something ridiculously noble... if you just wanna look better get in and train to do that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once you stick with it for long enough, the deeper reasons will come - trust me🤞⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let me know what you think of this... I love to dig a bit deeper and look into this stuff rather than the "here are 5 fat-burning exercises you must do" sort of nonsense.👍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Look at this 3-year transformation!
It’s not often that I come across pictures from the days before I became a health and fitness coach… I was not comfortable having my picture taken. This goes back further than when I became overweight, so that wasn’t the entirety of the issue (it just made an already difficult situation basically unbearable.) It goes all the way back to when I was a kiddo.
Until sometime in the last year, I had always been extremely critical of myself in pictures. It didn’t matter whether I was a teen, a skinny lady in my early 20’s, or on many of our awesome adventures, I just hated being in pictures.
In the pic below on the left, I wouldn’t let my hubby take a pic showing any more of my body than that... Fast forward to now, and I take SO MANY pics! I have a bunch of fun memories documented and I love taking pics making funny faces lol.
This is all a side effect of my coaching journey that is always inspired by the success of the people I have been blessed to meet and help! So thanks to all of you who already have joined, and to those of you who will join me on my journey to be my best me! We are rocking it!
