  • After taking another week off of the gym to try to help my ribs heal I decided to go back today. Day 72 since my injury and as you can see in the first pic, the swelling is still noticeable. Not sure what else to do at this point to help them heal, but sitting around on my butt isn’t doing me any good.
    I am the queen of making excuses why I don’t eat better, and this time of year is so hard. I’m a self-proclaimed sugar addict and all of the sweet treats the holidays bring are hard to resist. I can definitely tell I’ve overindulged with the extra cushion I’m carrying in my waist right now. 😳

  • I have stayed at a steady weight. I don& #039 ;t check my weight everyday or every week. As long as I eat right and workout I feel good about myself and where I am. It& #039 ;s cold outside in the early morning and I hate running in the cold. It& #039 ;s okay because these at home workouts work for me and give me the rush and sweat I enjoy! I don& #039 ;t have a six pack and it& #039 ;s okay! My butt is not as hard as I want it and it& #039 ;s okay! I know I have worked hard and I see it and that is my okay!! πŸ˜‹πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸΌ

  • Today we& #039 ;re going to focus on one of the best exercises for safely developing the posterior chain (hamstrings, glutes, and back) - the 🚨Romanian Deadlift🚨 - RDL for short. This exercise may look complicated, but it is very simple and very effective if done correctly. The key to performing a correct RDL is HIP HINGE, a pivotal component that almost all leg exercises require.
    Grab the bar off of the rack and hold right above the knee. Legs should be shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent. Slide the bar down the quads and past the knee while rotating the hips backwards. Pretend that there is a chair behind you and you are going to sit on it. Keep your back STRAIGHT the entire time, if it starts to bend then you have gone past your hamstring mobility and are risking injury. Continue moving your hips back as the bar descends downward until you feel a stretch in your hamstrings (if you don& #039 ;t you& #039 ;re doing the exercise wrong), at that point accelerate the hips back to a standing position and squeeze your butt at the top. If you are flexible continue until the bar touches the ground. We recommend doing this exercise near a mirror to check that your back is straight. Repeat for 3 sets of 12 repetitions.
    Note: It is our natural instinct to want to engage our quads when lifting anything, but do not for this exercise. The hamstrings, glutes, and back should be doing all of the work.
    At 5 Point Fitness, we highly recommend all of our athletes to be able to do this exercise correctly before attempting any type of deadlift or squatting exercise. So many people do not squat or deadlift with correct form, and it is because they do not take the time to perfect the basic movement patterns first.
    The posterior chain is essential to removing muscle imbalances in your body. Strong quads require just as strong hamstrings and glutes or it will ultimately result injury.
    Feel free to send us videos of your RDLs if you want us to look at your form or to be featured on our story!

  • Leg day! After all the heavy movements, squats, etc. How do you like to finish your workout? For me, I like landmines. Note, the heels coming up off the floor, I like to incorporate a calf raise into the movement. #Anytimefitness #LegDay #dadbod

  • Felt like utter complete trash by the time I got to sumos today, but despite exhaustion at high, latent headache, and general πŸ’©, hit 2 x 1 of 325 lbs (97% of 1RM). If I can pull this when feeling like trash, I’m excited for when I’m feeling great. Reppin’ 🐺 πŸ‘• @hybridperformancemethod #hybridperformancemethod
