Quick and easy dinner consisting of pasta, veggies, kidney beans, chickpeas and tomato sauce after a long day at work 👌🏼
Still suuuper sore in my entire body after my workouts from hell this weekend so I'm taking an extra rest day to make sure I give myself enough time to recover properly 🙌🏼
Did a pretty heavy legworkout this Saturday and on Sunday I went to a 1,5h boxing class, followed by me going to another gym and doing an upper body workout with a friend of mine (as if I wasn't already completely destroyed from the boxing 😂🤦🏽♀️)
💪🏼Back & Biceps💪🏼
love working upper body but still on the struggle bus with back movements. mind to muscle connection is vital & for me it’s been an experience really making that connection BUT little progress is better than no progress. I can also happily say I’m seeing big improvements with my upper body after prioritizing it & hitting these sessions 3x per week
1️⃣Lat Pulldowns 4x8

So happy with my push-up form progress...definitely more chest focused but working towards that tricep focused push-up👀
🔎 🧠: The core is located at the body's center of gravity, between the upper thighs and the sternum, to provide stability and strength. It's comprised of several muscles groups—the abs, obliques, low back extensors, hip flexors and glutes—that work together to transfer force between the upper and lower body.
🔥Lateral Jump RB Rotational Swing: Focuses on rotational power and load absorption. This is an alternative to the traditional medicine ball lateral jump throw if you don’t have a wall to destroy (I know from experience). The lateral hop is meant to teach load absorption and deceleration in the leg/hip/glute, to ultimately transfer that loaded energy into the throw. The incorporation of the resistance band allows for more shoulder stability and lay engagement. .
💣MB Single Leg Slam: This exercise engages practically your entire body, from your shoulders down to the toes! This is rapid lengthening contraction followed by the over-speed of the ball forces the hamstring and glute to decelerate the upper body as it moves toward the ground. Single-leg exercises improve acceleration, power-output, and unilateral stability.
💥Plank Pulls: Forces the core to stabilize the body to prevent unwanted movement with the arms overhead, all while performing the dynamic movement of the pull. .
