Weight Loss tips and tricks and research

This could also be called, “WHY THE SCALE CAN BE A LIAR”. # It can be so frustrating when you're nailing your nutrition and killing it in the gym only to step on the scale and see that you have gained weight. Before you freak out, consider these (8!) reasons why the number on the scale might have creeped up. # 💪🏼Lifting weights damages the muscle, and the tears that occur can cause the tissue to swell and retain fluid. Also, the body’s way of repairing itself is to flood the muscle with fluid that contains nutrients to support the healing process. # 🍠For every 1 gram of carbohydrate eaten, the body will hold onto about 3 grams of water, so if you’re seeing a higher number, rest assured it’s simply some water retention, not fat. # 😴Lack of sleep is a huge stressor on the body. While chronic sleep deprivation can lead to real weight gain, a scale increase after one poor night’s sleep is more due to water retention, or possibly slowed stomach motility, which could lead to constipation. # 💦When you aren’t adequately hydrated, your body will hold onto its water stores for future survival. It may sound counterintuitive, but the more you drink, the more it will expel, leaving you lighter. # 💩Many factors can throw off digestion, but suffice it to say, not being able to go to the bathroom can mean holding onto a few extra pounds. # 🍫For the ladies, it’s not uncommon to gain anywhere from 2-10 pounds within the week leading up to your cycle, as the increase in estrogen and progesterone that occurs makes your body retain more fluid. # 😩When you’re under stress, the body essentially goes into survival mode, and the last thing it is concerned with is shedding body fat. This can be responsible for daily fluctuations, or can hinder fat loss in the long term. # ⏰To ensure accuracy, it’s important to control as many variables as possible. Factors like time of day (weighing earlier means more stomach contents) and even the scale you are using can factor into a skewed number. Make sure to always weigh yourself at the same time and on the same scale. #fatloss #fatlossjourney #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivstion #progress #fitness

Thoracic Spine Mobility

. UNLOCK YOUR T-SPINE —– ⏮Another option for reversing your spine curve and promoting thoracic extension is this gem 💎. (Demo @russellbui) —– ❓How to: 1️⃣ Start on knees with elbows on bench. 2️⃣ Grip PVC with palms facing you. Hands wider than elbows. 3️⃣ Sit butt back to heels, pull stick overhead, and try to arch spine as much as possible (think cow 🐮 pose) 4️⃣ Hold for one breathe cycle. 5️⃣ Repeat 6-8 times. —– 🔦This exercise should light up your paraspinal muscles and help pull your spine into extension. Can't feel it? Default back to previous post ↩️and use the roller to gain more spine movement first. —– Why? T-spine extension is vital for most gym endeavors 🏋🏻‍♀️ (deadlifts, squats, bench, overhead movement), sports 🤾🏼‍♀️, work 👩🏽‍🚒, and just daily stuff 🙆🏼 —– 🔑 Plus it is often the key to eliminating neck, shoulder and back pain.

Perfect time to use eccentric isometrics: 3-7 second lowering, 3-7 second hold at bottom. —– 🔥 Goal is to fire up those thoracic paraspinals muscles. For all those anatomy buffs 🤓 out there, this consist of the longisumus thoracis, spinalis thoracis, multifidi, semispinalis thoracis, iliocostalis, and iliocostalis thoracis. —– 💎 Bonus: these are tremendously beneficial for improving torso position at bottom of squats. —– 🎵 Coleman Hell – 2 Heads

Foot posture and ideal tie position

#Repost @thefootcollective ・・・ Solid post by @quaddoc ・・・ COULD YOUR SHOES BE HURTING YOU? Wrapping up with feet tonight let's talk about shoes. Now you might be wondering what is a "toe box"? It's the very front/top portion of your shoes where your toes go. So gather some of your 👞 shoes and 🔍examine your toe box on your favorite kicks. You might be surprised by what you find. . Ideally you want the toe box to be wide to give your 🐷 toes room to spread out to distribute your weight as you move throughout the day. When the toe box is too narrow this can lead to: . 👠blisters 👡corns 👢bunions . Do your 👣 feet a favor and be sure to invest in shoes that will be kind to your feet!!! Especially for those that spend a lot of time standing or walking around throughout the day. . Do your shoes have narrow toe boxes like the ones shown above? If they do, then this could explain some of your feet issues too. Good news is that it is a simple fix. Opt for shoes that give you SPACE. Be sure to work your foot muscles and spend some time walking around bare foot to allow your toes some 😥 air.
