Posed vs. unposed✨
a reality check with 3 seconds apart and selflove power throwin your way because we all need that some days to k**l the self-criticism.
i had some pictures taken last week and also a lot of pictures where i “wasn’t ready”, not from my “good angle” and one of my thoughts were: “oh noo, i look bloated and that’s not a good pose. i should have s****d in my stomach..” but hey?! that’s okay, i’m just me and breathing. that is the reality. i don’t walk around posing - as i deeply hope no one does (take care of your back or it can suffer). we don’t look picture perfect and pose like in our pictures..like i post a lot with myself posing as you can tell! but hey, does anyone walk around flexing or have a big smile sayin “cheese” all the time because it looks good? ehe, it’s important to remember how the reality looks like and still know that you’re a badass, that you look amazing and no matter what to stay proud of yourself! you are shining and killing it.😘 much love💛💪🏼
Leg day week 7! squats on top of squats! front loaded, pulsing, sumo, and squat jumps! add on deadlifts, lunges, bridges, calf raises and more! legs are wobbly and sore, but so stinking worth it!
i feel great today, and the results are showing! my hubby commented yesterday how he has been noticing my profile change..of my strong legs and b**t and how good he thought i was looking! nothing better then a genuine compliment from a loving husband especially when you have been working your t**h off (literally!). thanks @joelfreemanfitness for the amazing 4x a week effective workouts!

non-alternating dumbbell reverse lunges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
what makes this single leg variation different from the forward lunge or basic alternating lunges? well, the non-alternating reverse lunge is great if you’re looking to add more metabolic stress to the quads and glutes☝🏼🍑
focus on keeping the hips square and slightly leaning forward with your torso as you step back. this is will take some unnecessary pressure off the knee and force you to really recruit those #glutes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
while there are many single leg variations of the lunge there’s a time and a place for each🤔switching up your exercises is great but if you don’t program them correctly your workouts just become random. random does not equal results☝🏼 keep it simple and move with a purpose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
