Monday- aka international arms day. . How about integrating some anterior core and glute activation along with your mandatory Monday bicep burn? . Love this variation with the @trxtraining suspension trainer, getting a little more bang for your buck on the direct arm work. . Start in a hang position with the arms at 90deg of shoulder flexion and then flex at the elbow whilst maintaining tension through anterior and posterior core musculature. Nice way of integrating some sagittal plane control along with some t-shirt season sleeve fillers. . . #bulletproofyourbody

Denver-based Chi, keeps it real with frequent #realtalk prompts and Instagram vs reality shots, reminding her community that not everything you see on instagram is an accurate depiction of real life. She integrates healthy nutrition tips with actionable fitness prompts to her followers.
Use Instagram to MOTIVATE, not to COMPARE 🙏 Your friendly reminder this #MotivationMonday that Instagram is a highlight reel, and no matter how many toned six packs you see, that does NOT diminish your own work or results or should impact your own self worth.💕 Also I am forever wondering how people take these ab photos. All I seem to be able to do is lay in my pool of sweat and try not to die. 🤷♀️😱 Mad props to @kelseywells on her forever ab inspo 🙏💃. . . #bekindtoyourself #beyoudoyou #bethebestyou #betteryourhealth #bekind #bebetterdobetter #embraceyourreal #celebrateyou #embraceimperfection #loveyourbody #loveyourbodyagain #loveyourbodytoday #instagramisnotreallife #realtalk #motivateyourself

WARM UP Heading to the gym this morning? Try this mobility drill to warm up your back, hips and shoulders. This one is for everyone- whether your a runner, a gym lover, play sports or do home workouts. : 💪🏼 If you are tight in certain areas, take your time and just go as far as the body allows. If you find you are more flexible you can move slightly quicker to get the heart rate going too. : 💯 Might seem boring but it’s always worth taking the time to warm up properly to help prevent any injuries from occurring and so that you can move better when you train!
