A Turkish Get Up is the ultimate mobility and stability full body movement, but breaking it down into parts is good too. In this quick clip, I’m just doing a part to focus on some shoulder and core stability. My weights aren’t heavy because it’s way more challenging than it looks to not have your legs come off the ground and keep the weight straight over head. 🔷 Give it a try and focus on good form. Your arms and legs should be in the same position as mine, so eventually you can do the whole Turkish get up and dow. Have fun and aim for about 2-3 of 15 reps to feel the burn. #abs #fit #stability #physicaltherapy #turkishgetup #fitness #gymlife #shoulder #core . . . . . . #fitnessmotivation #run #runner #gym #tuesdaytips #healthy #shoulder #baseball #motivation #pain #backpain #strong #fitnessmotivation #pacificgrove #monterey #ontrackptp
“Don’t stop until you are proud.” It’s a quote I often say when speaking to school groups. I saw this photo posted a few data ago, and it brings up so much emotion. It’s the starting line of the 2008 Olympic Marathon Trials in @bostonmarathon. I was 7th in the 10,000m in 2000, 4th in the marathon in 2004, and luckily 3rd in this race to finally make the team. 🔷 I was fighting throwing up while warming up for this race knowing it was my last chance at my Olympic dream. Life is about putting in the work and giving yourself every opportunity to succeed, and then reacting to every challenge along the way. It was a battle to get to the starting line coming, but I knew I was ready. My mantra during this race was “strong, relaxed .. powerful... you got this..” over and over in my head until I crossed the line. 🔷 find something that motivates you and dive in full force. The journey is always worth it, no matter the outcome. @fastwomen #motivation #fitness #olympicpt #race #inspiration #bostonmarathon #olympian #run #runner #train #fit #fitnessmotivation
“Train , don’t strain.” - Arthur Lydiard. 🔷 Much like my jumping, I thought I looked really great until I filmed this. Not so much! But regardless, these Walkout Planks are a nice variation and really work the core and shoulder complex more than the classic plank. 🔷 I’ve seen athletes gets almost to the floor, but frankly you need to only go as far as you can while holding good back form. Keep your head in line with your spine and your spine straight. When I first started doing these my left shoulder was my limiting factor, but it has steadily improved. 🔷 Start by walking your hands out as far as you can and holding 5-10 seconds. Aim for 5-8 Reps of 30 sec holds. Have fun! #abs #fit #stability #physicaltherapy #fitness #gymlife #shoulder #core . . . . . . #fitnessmotivation #run #runner #gym #tuesdaytips #healthy #motivation #pain #backpain #strong #fitnessmotivation
