Just one can of soda...
T H I N K T W I C E !
One can contains up-to the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar.
This amount of sugar, increases blood sugar and causes an insulin reaction in the body. This puts you at risk for diabetes or insulin resistance, not to mention weight gain and other health problems.
Don’t give in!

Crushed It! 👊🏽
1. I "finally" had a chance to check out the fresh and new CrushCamp with some of my #beastmodecrew tonight led by the "skillz" of Kerby.
2. With alternating rounds between the SkillMills and benches/dumbells it was a hella hard workout. Tip: When Kerby says "sexy run" and you're not quite sure what that looks like... freestyle it! 😜
3. The curved self-powered SkillMill take some getting used to but in no time it felt pretty natural. The class ended with a series of 65 meter sprints. Just "runaway". Killer.
Thanks @crushcamp 🙏🏽 We'll be back!

I don't normally have profound thoughts. But when I do, it's usually other peoples' - like my yoga teacher @healingyin
So, her profound thought for today is, "our bodies are unlocked but our minds keep us locked/limited," or something to that effect. Point is, stay flexible and find your freedom within. Also, do standing splits in your 30's #ordietrying #yycliving #yyctoday #calgaryliving #calgarylife #yoga #calgaryyoga #yycyoga #yycfitness #calgaryfitness #yogateacher #yyctraining #yycdaily #namaste #yycyogi #calgary #yyc #yycdowntown #calgaryism #yycnow #calgarynow

Concentration. Focus on the technique when performing any specific exercise because performing the exercise correctly will make the difference between the results you want to get versus the results you settle with.. drop your ego for a bit and focus on the form, then go back to adding weight. Taking new clients DM me for a free consultation and personal training session! -

🙌 if you never selfied, did the workout even happen? A few vids of some nice slow contracted cable exercises I suoersetted for tonight’s workout. Time under tension and I find myself closing my eyes a lot to really feel and visualize every muscle fibre 🙌
.
💥 I have a few custom programs to finish up over the next couple of days but if you’re looking for a new workout program drop me a DM. I am building one now for a client who only has access to the gym Monday to Friday but does MMA, soccer and has a few small things at home we made him some weekend workouts for. All done in our custom app that loads to your smart phone with video demonstrations. And while I’m busy, I have room for two more clients before my free time becomes a thing of the past. Still, bills to pay so I’m available. Have a great night! 💥

Meal prep. You know how it is. In all honestly, starting Jan 1st i took my diet to a new level durring my current bulk. Eating clean whole foods while carb loading and getting sufficient protien and i can honestly say i feel great. You will never outwork your diet in the gym. Diet is ALWAYS #1. Stay focused #teamk

#sumo #deadlifts with feet out wider than usual... neither felt natural tbh. Feel free to chime in with the laundry list of what I’m doing wrong, really (besides sumo 😂) #powerlifting #ipf #cpu #yycfitness #fitness

Here's why you should care about Intra Abdominal Pressure (IAP)

1) Increasing IAP helps stabilize the lower spine to an even greater degree than with bracing alone.
2) Learn to breathe first, then brace second.
3) Exhaling on the ascent of a movement (especially under a heavy load such as a squat) will cause a massive decrease in your IAP.
4) The negative result of that is harmful pressure created on the ligaments and discs of the spine.
When talking about creating IAP you first need to learn how to breathe properly. You may be asking “Isn’t breathing subconscious? How can we possibly be messing it up?” The thing is, respiration is subconscious, but breathing is a conscious action. To properly breathe to lift maximal weights is not as easy as you think.
Ideally a "proper" breath should feel like your stomach rising and falling, along with your lower rib cage expanding laterally. Ideally there should be volume increasing inside your core.
During proper breathing the diaphragm contracts and descends.
The ability to truly use breath behind your brace to create IAP is challenging and takes practice. However with patience you can learn this important lifting technique that will help protect your spine and take pressure off your lower back when you perform compound lifts. Just like with glute activation, learn how to breathe well first, then brace AND THEN move into doing it with a load.
