@edmylett is becoming one of my favorite people to listen to and get influence from. he is an outstanding man of faith and has worked incredibly hard to build and grow into what he is now. he recently did an interview on @bedroskeuilian podcast and he spoke about what his true deep driving internal purpose is. i thought it was so awesome that he shared what his true internal purpose was. so many influencers will share their goals, but not many share their deep driving purpose, and there is a big difference. in the podcast, he said he believes that one day when he dies and meets his creator, that he will be shown the version of himself that he was created to be. the best version of who he was supposed to be. what drives him is the idea that he doesn't want that version of himself to be a stranger. he wants to be the best version so that he knows he fulfilled his mission and purpose on this earth. that is such a profound thought and visual. it's impossible not to be inspired and driven with that as your driving force. the podcast itself is only 20-25 minutes and i highly recommend checking it our and then checking out all of ed's stuff online.

met deze oefening train je je rug -en buikspieren. het vergt bekkenstabiliteit en versterkt de schouderspieren.
je bent op je handen en knieën met je handen onder de schouders en de knieën onder de heupen. je kan eventueel een kussen of deken leggen onder de knie wanneer het pijnlijk wordt. .
hou je rug neutraal en duw je jezelf weg vanuit de rechter pols. strek tegelijkertijd je linkerbeen (uit tot bilhoogte) en je rechterarm uit. hou 5 tellen vast en wissel dan van been en arm.
doe dit 5 maal aan beide zijden.
tips: hou je kin ingetrokken en blijf kijken naar de mat. zorg dat je een holle rug maakt wanneer je je been en arm uitstrekt. als het te moeilijk of te pijnlijk op de handen en knieën zijn, kan je dit ook op de buik doen.
Having correct shoulder position is an important part of any strength exercise, including lower body exercises.
in this pic i'm cueing mel's shoulder position before a deadlift because poor shoulder position can affect the position of our rib cage, which affects the position of our spine, which affects the position of our pelvis, which will affect the strength of our legs.
so a better shoulder position = better deadlift. cool, huh? 👊
Handstand push ups - this is the goal, this 👆🏾 is the work. smashed a solid session of strength work on the boulders last night, focusing on building strength from deep at the bottom of the pressing range of motion. after freestanding reps (one at a time) half depth, i moved on to p-bar elevated feet pike presses and then onto heavy military press. safe to say, shoulders were smashed after that 💪🏾💥🙃
Never back down when you know you’re right. never back down from your convictions and what you believe in. you have an obligation to stick to your guns and fight for what you believe in and are passionate about. if you don’t feel you can and will fight no matter what the circumstance, you should question how much you really believe in it.
