✨incredible breakthrough shoot today✨
the first shoot i ever did was with @gustavoalfarophotography
and honestly, you guys have no idea how much love i have for this guy and his work.
i have never had somebody put so much time and care into teaching me an art that was completely foreign to me.
when i walked into the studio, i had no idea how to pose, throw vibes, and honestly i was pretty uncomfortable in front of the camera.
gustavo took the time and patience to teach me and make me comfortable. i cannot express how thankful i am for him not only talking me through poses, but helping me navigate the industry and always being honest with me.
if there is one person who i trust the most and have the most fun with shooting, it would be gustavo.
there’s a lot of super cool stuff on the way, so stay tuned!
Are you aware of the different types of isometrics?⠀
isometric contractions are where the muscle-tendon unit remains a constant length. 💪⠀
they are used widely by coaches for performance enhancement and in injury rehabilitation settings. 🤕⠀
did you know that maximal isometric force is greater than that of concentric actions? 🏋️⠀
jump in below and tell us of other isometric benefits! ✔️

✔️knowing the proper technique for squatting is one thing, but do you know how to safely bail from it? if you workout with high intensity, it is a matter of time until you fail a squat and when it happens, it is important to know how to safely bail from it or you can get badly injured.
some common mistakes include:
1. not squatting in a squat rack
2. setting the safety bar too low or not at all
3. bailing forward (some exceptions)
✔️you should always squat in a squat rack and set the safety bar about an inch or two below your lowest squat point (adjust accordingly during your warm up sets). setting the bar too low will make the bail harder, as you will have to lower yourself farther, putting a great amount of stress on your joints.
✔️you should try to bail the weight backwards not forwards. just simply let go of the bar and drop it behind you. too many people try to bail the weights forwards and get trapped underneath it while trying to get it over their head.
however, bailing backwards may not be possible always. if you are someone who's hips tend to rise a lot during the squat, you may have to bail it forwards.
if you find yourself in this situation, try to keep your spine as neutral as possible and perform the "good-morning" (bending at the hips) to lower the weight onto the safety bar. this should be fairly straight forward if you set the safety bars at the correct height.
remember to squat heavy, but also safely.

Brb just dying from this weeks training ✌️😂 -
this was literally me after every single wod this week 😂💁🏼♀️ but loved every min of it, even tho i nearly died and couldn’t breathe a lot of the time 🤪 i have felt a lot stronger and a lot fitter than i have before 💪 -
alt emom 30 - 15 rounds: (every min on the min)
every odd min: 12/15 cal row
every even min: 15 burpees
for the first round of the wod i did the workout as prescribed but realised very quickly 😂 that i had to scale it down to 10cal and 10 burpees. because my goal was to be consistent in this wod, instead of doing some rounds rx and dying in the rest of the wod and not being able to keep up with my reps. so i completed the 15 rounds, scaled and it was a struggle but was so proud of myself and how i took on the workout 💪 if you give this one a try, let me know how you do 💪
