The 10 Best Instagram Accounts for Fitness Motivation

Muscle is built the same way character is — slowly by repeatedly undergoing stress and tension. Challenges and “failures” in life can either break us, or MAKE us. Remember, in your toughest moments, you are refining your character. You are writing your legacy. www.kelseywells.com/app . #strengthbuilding #selflove #motivation #fitnessmotivation #youdoyou #fitspo #fitspiration #sweatwithkelsey #sweat #healthymind #healthyliving #fitmom #girlswithmuscle

Afternoon workout at @crossfitbroadway was a good burner today! First we started with Every 90 secs x 9 sets (12 mins) Power Clean + 2 Hang Squat Cleans First set at 50% of 1 rep max clean. Add as you wish – I made it to 120#. Then we did 3 Rounds For Time: (14 min time cap) 470m Run 20 KB Swing (70/55) 20 Wall Ball I finished in 11:23 using 45#. The pain of a 3 round workout is a thing of beauty.

Running Tight Vs. Running Relaxed [technique @vlfit] . Are you tensing up too much when you run? This is the MOST COMMON PROBLEM that people have when they’re trying to run faster! . Trying too hard or muscling through your runs can actually make you RUN SLOWER❗️ . Sounds crazy right? But maximum power output actually requires supreme relaxation of your muscles . Think of a great golf swing Can you imagine how slow the swing would be if the golfer tensed up all their muscles throughout the entire range of motion? It would be absolutely terrible! . Next time you run fast or sprint, try implementing the following tips ☝ (which will require you to stay relaxed while you run!): . 1️⃣ High Heel Recovery: Sprinting is a CYCLICAL movement! In order to cycle as fast as possible, the leg that’s swinging forward must be shortened as much as possible by lifting your heel to your bum Think of how a figure skater has to bring in their arms and legs in closer to their body in order to spin faster! . 2️⃣ Upright Posture: Don’t slump your shoulders forward! This will impair the degree to which your arms can help propel you. . 3️⃣ Neutral Head Position: If you protract your neck out, not only are you excessively extending your cervical spine (which can be painful), it can actually make you look up too much and prevent you from moving forward effectively. Keep the head/neck neutral and your gaze set in front of you. . 4️⃣ Arm Movement: If you’re too tense, your arms won’t be helping you run faster as much as they could be. Keep that chest open, and swing your arms through relaxed shoulders. Your stride will open up as your arms do. . *NOTE* this was filmed near the back end of the treadmill to prevent the handle bars from blocking the view of foot contact. Typically, workouts on treadmill should be performed between the front and middle of the belt to reduce risk of falling* . TAG SOMEONE WHO SHOULD LOOSEN UP WHEN THEY RUN . #Myodetox #vlfitness
