just for the record, i am all about the sharing of ideas via social media. but we should not be blindly adding exercises or thought processes seen on instagram just because we think they seem interesting or fun.
🎲yes, i have seen exercises that i have liked on social media, and have even prescribed them in someone’s workout program or rehab plan.
🎳but that’s because i was able to relate that exercise to that person, and have a very good “why” for it’s selection.
🤹♀️what we should not be doing is browsing through instagram and randomly selecting exercises to do.
🏝many times the exercises that gain the most traction on social media are too advanced for the majority.
🏜secondly, they won’t be specific to you, your goals, or your body’s capabilities.
stick to the basics, occasionally play with fun movements, but don’t make a habit of selecting random exercises for your workouts.
💋making out with a squat rack hinge💋
🏋️♂️the set up:
1️⃣set up with your kneeling knee, thigh, and hip against the rack.
2️⃣use your arms to pin your chest against the rack as well.
3️⃣this will keep your movement “honest”.
1️⃣irradiate tension through use of the rack.
2️⃣flex the non-kneeling leg as high as you can.
3️⃣maintain hip flexion and rotate leg into internal rotation-hold for 5 seconds.
4️⃣repeat for 3-5 reps per side
💥want to improve your squat!?💥 technique:
1️⃣grab the bottom of the stick and drive it upwards into a steady object (ceiling, squat rack etc...)
2️⃣create between 60-75% tension up into the object through the stick.
3️⃣maintain your tension throughout the entire rep.
4️⃣repeat for 6-8 reps
🗣if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, let me know!

plus le temps passe et plus je me rends compte que je ne réagis pas pareil que les autres.
« elisa, les gens ne se remettent pas en question ». voyant ma surprise, il développe: « les gens n’aiment pas avouer qu’ils ont tort. quand on se remet en question, on l’avoue indirectement et l’ego n’aime pas ça».
je ne connais pas ce concept car dans mon monde ça n’existe pas. je fais comme les américains: live quick, fail fast. je t***e mes idées en permanence. si qqch ou qqun me prouve, par a +b que c’était du bullshit, je laisse tomber mon idée, j’écoute et je m’imprègne du nouveau concept. tout ce qui compte pour moi est avancer, peu importe le moyen derrière🦈🐺
et toi, tu te remets en question ou tu t’ancres sur tes habitudes ? 💭
🇺🇸🇬🇧the more the time goes by, the more i realise i’m not like the others. .
“elisa, people don’t like being questioned.” seeing my surprise, he continues: “people don’t like admitting they are wrong. and when you question them, if they accept it, indirectly they admit they were wrong”
i do not know this because in my world it doesn’t exist. i do the same as the americans : life quick, fail fast. i test my ideas permanently and if something or someone proves me that i was wrong, then i quit my old belief and listen, i let myself be influenced. the only thing that matters to me is to progress, no matter how 🐺🦈
and you, do you question yourself or do you stay closed up in your beliefs ? 💭
today i finished a 3 day fast. hell yes!! i did it.
the clarity. omgeeee!
now you may be thinking “oh, just another one of those out with the old, in with the new.” but it’s really not about that at all.
i’ve felt so deeply out of control over my decision making when it comes to food.
i can now openly and confidently state that it was definitely to fill a void.
whether it was avoiding urgency of a situation, fear, discomfort, or heightened emotions.
when i’m doing something i love and living in alignment with my purpose, i eat to nourish my body…
but when i’m lacking purpose, feeling emotional or disempowered, i eat for comfort.
until i feel sick.
my physical body has gone through so much transformation in the last 2 years.
overweight, overeating and continual antibiotics to bikini comps with restrictive meal planning a month of freedom in bali and bali belly to a body that needs reseting.
time to heal
this fast is about removing the bandaid and understanding how much my body really needs to thrive.
it’s about being grateful for the food that i have and not taking this privilege for granted.
whatever, wherever, whenever…
because i can.
every time i’ve felt the urge to eat, i’ve asked myself:
am i actually hungry? or is my desire to eat being triggered by some form of discomfort?
considering that i would usually give in to that urge half the time (even if it is a protein bar) my point still remains…
i have been eating to fill a void.
here are 3 steps of aligned action i’ve been taking when i feel triggered:
1. ask: “am i actually hungry?”
2. if not, identify the trigger (avoidance, fear, discomfort, heightened emotions)
3. go to the source of the trigger and resolve the issue or talk to someone who supports you.
what i have found is the better i understand myself and my patterns, the quicker i am able to overcome my triggers.
i am now finding fulfilment through love, friends, family, fun, career success, and adventure.... not just food.
