Can you spot the difference? It’s subtle 😜
Thanks to an old #sportsinjury
⚽️ and slight winging of my scap,I have a very unstable left shoulder, so it’s important to me that I work on strengthening the shoulders and protecting them.
During my workout today, this #totalbodymove
a reverse lunge with a press and twist challenged my #balance #core #lowerbody
It’s easy to just go through a motion with out being completely focused on it, which I caught myself doing for the first round. Sure you will still see SOME progress that way, but it could be minimal and the risk of injury could be heightened compared to when you are #focused
on the areas you want to work.
The top and bottom LEFT frames, my upper back was not engaged and as a result you can see my shoulder blades splaying away from each other. It was easier to speed thru the move but I only felt it in the front of my shoulders (ouch) and not much in more core. RIGHT frames I followed Autumn’s cue to keep shoulder blades back and down (packing). Woo, #ifeltthateverywhere
. Left shoulder was better protected and will be stronger, I had to slow down which means more time under tension #burn
and my core was also more engaged.
So here is a tip, even if you are just starting out... in every move #VISUALIZE
the muscles and body parts you want to #strengthen
. This will start building your #neuromuscular
connectivity, help you stay #presentwithinthemoment
and see #greaterprogess
in the long run!
