Subversive Fitness: Day 308 Of 360

Leave the ego out of the equation- excellent, scaled push-ups are far better than crappy, broken “unscaled” ones.
Day 308 Of 360

5 violent, attentive rounds of:

 

7 Deadlift @ (up to) 75% of 2RM
9 Kettlebell “Short swing” @ 75% + of 5RM
(Minimum) 1 minute rest

 

Position governs weight- no lazy set-ups, no soft lifts. If position softens or mechanics erode, adjust weight during the rest period. Additionally, output governs rest- If you want more, earn more.

Thursday Things

Hi friends!

Time for another round of Thursday Things. Here are some things I’m loving lately:

Google Keep

Google Keep

Someone recommended this app to me for to do lists and I finally got around to checking it out. Spoiler alert- I’m loving it! I’ve tried Wunderlist and Evernote and they were ok, but I never really stuck with them and always went back to just the basic iphone notes. I’m loving Google Keep because it’s clean and simple, you can see it on your computer, you can make checklists, rearrange the notes, make voice notes, handwritten notes, add photos, invite collaborators etc. Love love love.

Pigment App

Pigment App

If you like coloring, this is worth checking out. You can fill in the photos by tapping, or actually color with your fingers. There are tons of designs, they give you coordinating color palates, etc. It’s not free though…i think it costs $10/month…but you can do a free one week trial to check it out!

The Personalized Plate

The Personalized Plate

I came across these on Instagram, but you can also check out their website. SUCH adorable plates. I’m definitely getting some for my kiddos.

yawning yoga

Yawning Yoga 

I’m not even a huge yoga fan, but I recently saw this book and it looks so cute. Perfect for kiddos at bedtime. You can find it on Amazon (aff link).

stitchfix extras

Stitch Fix Extras

You guys know I love getting Stitch Fix occasionally since shopping with two kids rarely happens. They just launched ‘Extras’ as well, so now you can add on items like bras, underwear, tights, camis etc. If you want to check out Stitch Fix, here’s my referral link!

 

That’s it for today!

Enjoy!

Pull It Tight, Lift It Right

If you are going to take the next step in your exercise routine by adding quality gear, this belt should be at the top of your list.

The lifting belt is one of the most misused pieces of equipment in the gym. In fact, some manufacturers don’t understand how a belt is supposed to work due to the fact that they construct belts that are wider in the back than the front.

Remove "Deserve" From Your Fitness Vocabulary

Originally posted at: http://breakingmuscle.com/healthy-eating/remove-deserve-from-your-fitness-vocabulary

You didn’t earn a pound of gummy bears just because you worked out this morning.

Good angel on one shoulder, bad angel on the other. One little voice whispers to you that you can do something, the other that you can’t. One insists that you want something, but the other reminds you that you shouldn’t have it. We all face the internal struggle to make good choices while weighing the options. We all have this internal dialogue.
