Forward Fold & Halfway Lift
Instagram and TikTok have us all drinking the Kool-Aid to some degree. Though we know deep down that these platforms are sometimes riddled with misinformation, the daily promise our news feeds provide us of a certain body type in a short time frame can weigh us down in terms of goal setting.
End every workout on a high note
Not only does proper performance mean fewer injuries and better recovery, but it also helps with your mindset. When we get stuck in the rep or max rabbit hole (where we put more weight on the bar and finish the set regardless of form), our mindset also suffers.
And while being a modern-day superwoman is certainly within our wheelhouse, the pressures can sometimes mean we don’t always feel empowered in our own bodies.
