🔑keep your back flat and your neck neutral or just slightly extended
🔑keep the bar close to your body

👊one of my resolutions business-wise for the year is to spend more time educating on fitness itself. i know it can be overwhelming when you're first starting out.
⏩we've all heard of the 'squat' challenge - but what about other exercises for your bum?? there are a ton of exercises that shouldn't be underestimated. above are a few examples.
🎉my personal favorite: sumo romanian deadlift.
⁉️would you like me to post more on exercises? maybe sample workouts? does 'booty building' speak to you?

[1-leg rdl with counterbalance]
we love 1-leg rdl variations for our athletes and powerlifters alike, but they can be tough to learn. one of our first variations is with a counterbalance to teach the athlete how to shift their weight to the back leg while keeping a flat back. try with a 5- or 10-lb plate or dumbbell for 6-10 reps per leg.

☕️who's with me? comment 'yes' below if you drink coffee within 1 hour of waking up😄
⏩ not drinking as much coffee as i used to when i was studying, but that first cup of the morning is a personal go-to.
🎉getting back into a rhythm of going to the gym first thing in the morning has been a challenge. i've let an injury keep me from getting back at it for faaaaaaarrrr too long.
🔋building new habits (or rebuilding old ones) takes time. focus on taking it one step at a time! for me that means just making sure i get to the gym, even if it's for 20 minutes or i just walk when i'm there. habit > specifics.

It’s more than just lifting. i found my passion in it, it turns into my lifeenergy. it gives me so much more in my life than any other sports ever did. started lifting about 3 years ago, only focusing on weight-loss, no idea of which incredible importance it is going to take space in my life. i love what this sport did to my body. weightlifting changed my physical and my mental human being and there will never ever be any option for me to quit. it gave me strength in every way, i love the feeling i‘m getting stronger everyday. in my life,strength has become one of the most important things after my family. cause in my opinion strength,physically and mentally, makes you invincible. and that’s my biggest goal in life 🖤💪🏼#felttheneedtopost#strength#strenghtening#mentalstrength#physicalstrength#hwsnichtoptimal#iknow#immerderkritischeblickzumspiegel#fullrom#romaniandeadlift
