  • Continuing to Build the Foundation 
Tonight we start to finish the moderate/intermediate progressions and move into more advanced/novice progressions for the RTC strengthening. That does not mean these progressions will be complicated or “sexy”, but just a bit more of a challenge for those who continue to get stronger. That is the goal with quality over quantity building strength along with shoulder health. The progressions are:

1) KB High Pull 
2) DB Cuban Press
3) DB Scaption to Lateral Raise to Adduction 
Stay consistent and groove the movement pattern before moving up in weight, reps, and sets. Any questions/comments feel free to leave them in the post below or send me a message. Any problems, issues, or discomfort please seek out a qualified healthcare/medical professional. Have a great Thursday night and come back tomorrow for another post in the RTC strengthening series.

  • When you have a dream/vision/goal, many people will try to pull you back down to their level of reality. The reason they do this is because as soon as you start succeeding it sheds light on their unwillingness to dream, have a vision or set goals.

  • First off, can’t record for shit apparently. Second off, snatches are an incredibly humbling move but feeling pretty good with 70% being 75#. Also feeling pretty lucky to have a coaching team and support system like I do at CrossFit DeForest who put on classes like these that allow us to practice and tune in specific lifts.

  • That face you make when you know that you are in control of your actions and your attitude. There is so much opportunity for all of us to take advantage of. Let’s do just that!!

  • 🐒 Hanumanasana ↔ Monkey Pose or Seated Splits Pose on #yogatutorial with @omniyogagirl
・・・
✨ Floating Splits Tutorial ✨ #omniyogagirltips ✨ Make sure to warm up with multiple rounds of Sun Salutations before moving on to the next stages 🙏🏻
.
Prep Poses - spend 10 breaths or longer in each pose:
* Rag doll (dangling in a standing forward fold
* Seated forward fold
* Low lunge
* Low lunge with quad stretch
* Half splits
.
1. Begin in a low lunge with the back foot flexed & the toes tucked under
2. Use your hands to support yourself either side of your front leg as you extend the front leg forward as far as you can
3. Lift your back knee & straighten your back leg
4. Lean forwards & take hold of your front foot with both hands. Your elbows should be on the mat either side of your calf muscle
5. Fold forward over your front leg & square your hips (in my photos this would mean drawing the right hip back & the left hip forward). Push into your back foot & keep your hips lifted
6. Broaden your shoulders & push into the elbows as you use your arm & shoulder strength to lift your foot off of the mat with your hands. Keep your legs & core strongly engaged, & press through your back heel to hover your splits above the mat
.
✨Key Tips✨ This really is a balance of strength & flexibility.... Keep working the legs strongly as you float your splits & extend out through both of them. Think about sinking your hips down as you lift your front leg to maintain the split - They will have a tendency to pop up! Use your core to get a deep forward fold & to help with the lift. Let me know if you give it a try! What tutorials would you like to see? Please let me know in the comments 👍

  • Incase you needed a reminder...Know your value and your capabilities. Believe in yourself and set big goals, but never forget that dreams and goals are nothing without action. If you don’t know how to get started, read the list above again. We got this! ❤️

  • When I started this journey I just wanted to lose the weight I had gained after college. So I went online and bought some DVDs.
.
Then I failed ❌
.
I wasn't seeing results and I wasn't that committed. Then I reconnected with @nikkitegtmeier and joined this amazing community. There's nothing like the support of other women reaching towards goals together and encouraging each other! 👐 Since then I've lost those pounds but I've gained so much more. For that I will always be grateful for this opportunity to love myself and help others along the way 💕

  • ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨Someone commented yesterday that I don’t post my workouts much anymore. That is true. I still work out every single day because I love it and it is good for my health and wellness! But I found something else I want to share with you more than I want to share my workout videos! My business!! How do I leverage my own time, ambition and skillset to build a cash flowing asset (and teach others to do the same)? ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Picture me like McDonalds 🍟, except I have no physical store. It's all in my phone - at the beach, at home, in the car, between meetings, or running errands. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
➡️➡️➡️Now REALLY focus on this next point! It’s a good one!
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
McD’s would not be McD’s with just one store. It would be the Gastropub- that cute little restaurant on the corner of New Scotland and Grove Avenue. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
So, McDonalds duplicates. 🍟There are multiple stores in many towns.
🍟There are stores all over the nation. 🍟There are stores on every corner in NYC. 🍟There are stores all. over. the. world. 
There is a CEO at the top, COOs below him/her, Presidents and Vice Presidents down below them, directors, managers, etc. and waaaaaay down at the bottom of all those people sit the hamburger slingers, all making minimum wage, right?

Wait...that’s shaped like a ....🔺⚠️🔼(gasp)

Similar to McDonalds, I duplicate.
🔹I have my business.
🔷My business partners around the country have their businesses. (🙍🏽‍♂️yes, men too) 🔹Their people have businesses and it goes down and down FOREVER. 👫👨‍👨‍👧👩‍👩‍👦‍👦 ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Wait, forever? ♾
Yes.  Forever. ♾
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Compensation is volume based, not people based, and it is not capped...EVER!💵💵 Our team also has an amazing Free Business School 📚where we learn from people who’ve made millions of dollars 💰💰 in several industries. Smartest people I know!
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
But let’s rewind... what about the people at the bottom making minimum wage? 🧐

They don't exist. 
You can earn more money than the person above you or below you - because your network is your netWORTH.💃🏻💃🏻 ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Ready to be amazed?💥💥 Post continued in comments!⬇️⬇️

Surround yourself with those people...because they will help you push for and realize your own dreams!
