Just trying to make sure these legs look sexy for summer 😝 It’s okay to do low weights! Pregnancy is not the time to do heavy weights!
4x15 leg press
4x15 single leg press
4x15 hip abduction w/ glute kickbacks
4x15 leg extensions
4x15 leg curls
Think you might have imbalances.?
Just about all of us do.
That’s perfectly fine IF you address them .
From my experiences, imbalances lead to pain and then injury.
We don’t want that!
So during my rebuilding phase I’ve been implementing more unilateral workouts that focus solely on one side of the body
Doing this just for a short period of time (3 weeks) has had a serious impact on my over performance and has improve my strength!.
If you’re someone like me and would rather NOT have your workouts compromised by your imbalances then start using single arm/leg attachments to help improve on this 💯
Myo reps on the single leg press. The angled foot plate on this leg press is great, because it allows for deeper reps. Combined with constant tension (avoiding lockout at the top), this shifts the stimulus-to-fatigue ratio in a much more favorable direction: less weight, less stress on the connective tissues and CNS, but more muscular stimulus for the quads. ----------------------------------------- Majoneesitoistoja yhden jalan prässissä. Jalkalevyn kulma on tässä prässissä aika mainio, koska se mahdollistaa syvemmän liikeradan. Yhdistettynä jatkuvaan jännitykseen (ylhäältä vajaa liike) syvempi prässäys siirtää ärsykkeen ja uupumuksen suhdetta parempaan suuntaan: pienemmillä painoilla vähemmän rasitusta tukikudoksille ja hermostolle, mutta enemmän ärsykettä kohdelihaksille.
Day 3 #activateyourpressup is Single leg press 🙌 I just uploaded my first video to IGTV of day 3 so you can do the drills along with me with instructions🙌 8 mins is all you need! Be sure to warm up before you practice 🙄 🙃
Today’s shape teaches you how using your lean and lift in combination with reaching the top foot up works you closer to feeling a press with the bottom leg. It teaches you that while you are pushing down on your hands, your legs are reaching up.
I can’t emphasize enough how much you have to lean forward, which requires deep wrist extension and also deep core engagement- or compression. If you’re struggling finding press, lift your ground higher by using a prop. and be patient! It took me 2 years of working on press to get press and that was after having a solid handstand.
Swipe to see today’s drills and read on for tips🤸🏻♀️
🤸🏻♀️Single leg rocks - from forward fold, lift one leg up come up high on grounded foot tip toes and lean forward and back. 🤸🏽♂️Use wall to find press. Do a split against the wall - it’s ok if your legs aren’t straight. Come onto the tip toes of your bottom foot. Press the top of your top foot firmly into the wall until your bottom foot floats off the ground, now pull your thigh to your chest. Do a few rounds on both sides.
🤸🏻♀️ elevate your ground to find that press! Use chairs, benches, blocks whatever you need to find a press, or lift off the prop.
🤸🏻♀️ check my story for a spot for this kind of press and remember to check out IGTV
🔥🔥You are all giving this challenge all you got! I can see it! You’re doing great, keep going. Every attempt is progressing you on your journey to press
