Good Monday morning!
How do you use this thing? 😅 I figured I had to be on to something, because I could really feel it 😂🐒
Now, I belive it is important to show some respect for traditions and decorum when you are somewhere with other people, whether that is while traveling to a nother country or going to the gym.
But that does not mean that we can’t have fun and step a little outside the «box» as well. You can be respectful to others, and still have fun!
There is a difference between not caring about what other people think, and not caring about other people 😉
So, have fun, play outside the box, and don’t worry to much about what other people think about you. People will often get a bit unsure if you step outside their «normal». But at the same time, be nice 😉 I think we will get far this way 😄
And, have a most wonderful week all you wonderful people 😊❤️🐒
Box steps with toe touches will improve balance, form, and is perfect for combining with #weightlifting - My workout partner is doing a different variation with a smaller box and no bar for beginners. Start off small and work your way up! 🙌✌💛
OLYMPIC BAR SQUATS (JOINT PAIN CAUSES)
Squats are one of the most technical exercise motions and dangerous . If you feel the slightest pressure or pain in a joint (I.e. neck, shoulders, back, knees) immediately stop.
The following are examples that cause joint pain.
1). Some of your muscles are relaxed unracking weight or racking
2). Weak or under developed support muscle group(s).i.e. Core, shoulders, back, hips.
3). Force reps - trying to compensate for fatigue & heavier weights.
4). Arms/elbows flared back w/causes upper body to bend forward & butt to stick out /back pain.
5). Improper breathing. Holding your breath.
6). Grip spacing to wide or narrow.
7). Hips sway side to side on up motion.
