One kind of one arm handstand from last summer. Even though it's taking me lots and lots of time to learn this skill, mostly due to restrictions in my training. I'm slowly getting closer to controlling it. Got a few good holds this week and for the first time in months no pain in my wrist 👍
It's always an adventure when The Pack gets together 🐺

The absent, catatonic gaze of one who abandons himself to nothingness and appears to discover everything. The body that flow along, down the current. A profusion of symbols: the poppy flower, the emblem of eternal sleep; nettles to represent past pains; a weeping willow branch, symbolising unrequited love. This is a painting that is a symbol of an entire era, with which romance, even in the British Isles, attempted to challenge centuries of tradition. The result is a masterpiece representing a sad Shakespearean heroine, and more importantly, a work that tells a great deal about modern man. The Ophelia by John Everett Millais is perhaps the best-known painting of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Perhaps there is only one other that might reach this point of fame: The Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse. Also in this case, the protagonist is a young woman, who has the aura of the knights of the round table (revisited by a romantic poet like Tennyson) and, at the same time, who is surrounded by a vast assortment of modernist touches, accessories that would have appealed to the cursed poets who, in France at the same time, were composing their verses. For the first time, these two paintings together abandon the Tate of London, a pre-Raphaelite temple, in order to go overseas. Their destination? Australia. They will be the "stars" of the new exhibition held at the National Gallery in Canberra: Love and Desire, which began on December 14th and will come to a close on April 28th 2019. it is more than understandable that, for this occasion, the "Aussies" have gone all out. Visitors can admire about eighty works in total, half of which come from the English museum. Some are famous, while others are little known, but certain able to result in little jewels that you have never seen before. #mereasy#artistlife#shakespeare#arte#viaggi#artwork#art#paintings#masterpiece#tourist#arte#holiday#funny#mobile#sculpture#movement#PreRaphaelit#kineticart#motion#movement#shapes#universe#wire#suspension#harmony#beauty#modernism#paris#privatecollection#artcollector#tate#london
FLEXIBILITY VS. MOBILITY | • ✖️Flexibility: The ability to reach maximum muscle length either in passive or active ROM. ✖️Mobility: Same as above + the ability to motor control and coordinate under load (bodyweight being the first step under load). • ◾️ For example: Flexibility and help you reach a deeper squat however mobility will help you rise back up from a deep squat in proper form and technique without compromising/hitching.
A few comparisons below 👇🏼: • ✖️Flexibility: benefits don’t remain long-term as it requires consistent stimulus (stretching). ✖️Mobility: benefits are similar to strength gains, as improvements can linger on longer unless otherwise you stop mobility training altogether and slowly see a decline in mobility as with strength. • ✖️Flexibility: improvements are dependant upon time under tension (how long the stretch is held) and frequency performed (requires daily housekeeping to maintain new found flexibility). ✖️Mobility: improvements can be enhanced through soft tissue therapy such as foam rolling, massage and arguably.... manipulation 🙊 (yes i went there). • ✖️Flexibility: not a recommended protocol for injury prevention i.e stretching before or after sessions of workouts, match, return to work etc... wont affect your chances of avoiding a ACL tear, hamstring tear, tendon rupture and low back pain etc... ✖️Mobility: your go to injury prevention tool 👌🏽 • ✖️Flexibility: best performed AFTER a bout of physical activity whilst the muscles are warm. Therefore an effective cool down regime. ✖️Mobility: best performed BEFORE a bout of physical activity to help with warming up the joint ROM. Pro Tip: has to be relevant to the exercise about to be performed therefore it should be a mimic of the real exercise. For example: performing high knee marching with hip externals and fire-hydrants (these are specific to the hip but the ankles and knees should be appropriately warmed up too) before deep squatting. • ...and remember #MotionIsLotion •
For 10 minutes today we did some gentle movement, breathed, talked and were calm(ish). Everyone seemed to enjoy it, we’ll try it again tomorrow. 🙂🧘🏼♂️ Anyone else keen?
Anxiety and mental health rates are alarming, even children these days are experiencing stress like never before. 🧠🙏🏽 Self-care and stress management can come in many forms. When it comes to exercise, recognise that high-intensity training can be awesome but it is also a significant STRESSOR. When it comes to exercising our children, the concept of having them ‘run out all their pent up energy’ can also be awesome, BUT it could also be adding stress to a fragile system already under stress. 🏋🏽♀️🏃🏼♀️ Take time to balance your high-intensity, exciting, energy-burning training with some low-intensity, calming, nourishing habits. 🧘♀️❤️ It’s not possible to overdose on self-care, and at the same time you might influence some young impressionable people to start their own positive habits. 🥰👨👩👧👦 A tonne of people I know are fantastic, healthy role models for the kids and young people in their lives and I hope they take some pride in that. 🤜🏽🤛🏽😁🙌🏽
I always get people asking how I get movement shots.....it's not hard you just move around like a twat and some how it looks alright once it's filtered 💁🏻♀️ there is a serious #asmr experience with that jacket 😂🙈 #bloggerlife#behindthescenes
