Why is Off-Season Athletic Training Important? “During the off-season, athletes may be free of competitions, but it isn’t all leisure and vacation. They will be involved in off-season training, a critical practice period that can return dividends if done correctly.
Increasing potential performance in the off-season has many benefits, and is the foundation of personal athletic growth. It’s important to maintain athletic prowess, because it’s much easier to stay in shape than get back into shape. It’s also important to find an enjoyable way to train in the off-season so as to avoid becoming burnt-out or injured. All in all, off-season training is important regardless of the sport because it is a time to rest, develop, improve and focus on skills that directly and indirectly affect competitive performance.
Begin with Physical and Mental Rest
Once the season is over, it’s time for some well-deserved physical and mental rest. One of the most important parts of the off-season is taking time to recover. Without proper rest there can be negative ramifications.
One major consequence is injury. The body needs time to heal and any athlete, high school or professional, who pushed too hard throughout the year will almost assuredly see physical harm. If athletes evade physical injury by some small chance, they still have to deal with the mental stress.” #athlete#offseason#important#recovery#bodyevolution#bikiniolympia#determination#focus#bodybuilder#ifbbproleague#mlostrong#teamprotan#suitsyousexy#suityouswimwear#offseason#d4musclefit#workout#gym#exercises#stretch
💎HIP OPENERS 💎
My students of the DeZENmber Yoga Class encouraged this post.
When hips are tight, they increase the load and cause overuse of the spine. In addition to the benefits of improved range of motion and circulation and decreased back pain, opening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well. TRY THESE ASANAS (poses)
Don’t forget to BREATHE 🌬
Special Thanks the students who showed up in class and online.

I’ve lost flexibility in 2018, but I feel better than ever!! 😱🙏🏼 The other day when I was doing a photoshoot - practicing Dancer’s pose for the photo you see on the right felt amazing!! I couldn’t wait to see what the photos looked like and to my surprise, my leg looked a lot less higher and my body looked a lot less flexible than it did back in the beginning of the year. 💕
👉🏼 The truth is over the past few months I have been focusing a lot more on form and how my body feels as opposed to what it looks like in my photos. 🤔 In the photo on the left I am straining SO hard to get my leg that high. My elbow is hyper-extended and I’m opening my hip way too far!! I am lucky I didn’t strain a muscle or hurt myself pulling so hard - but I will say I love the way the pose looks!
😍 The photo on the right is how I would truly practice this pose. My body looks more relaxed and my hips are pointing down to actively engage the correct muscles I should be working in this pose. 🙏🏼 For anyone out there taking a few steps back in order to truly move forward in yoga, life, and everywhere in between - I want you to know that it’s OK!! I truly feel 2018 has been a transformative year for me and maybe it doesn’t look the way I thought - but it feels better than I could have ever imagined. 💓 Lots of love! Xo Melis

Let's talk about twisting. Specifically where tucking the elbow to the outside of a knee is offered as an option. First of all, to review, every pose is about creating space and length somewhere in the body--usually the spine. By definition, the motion of twisting is to rotate the shoulders and spine in relation to the pelvis which stays neutral (sort of; I could post a whole thing on the hips in twists). In order to do that, you need to first lift up--make space--and exhale into it keeping the shoulder heads apart, as you twist. When you can no longer keep the long spine, heart lifted, broad chest thing happening, you've hit max. Don't push further. Notice the arms have nothing to do with any of that.
At that max, some people can comfortably tuck the elbow on the outside of the knee without sacrificing that twist and lifted chest and it's all pretty, everyone is happy. But for many bodies, whether a new or "advanced" yogi, that tuck causes you to lose the twist! And some people need to ease into the tuck, wrapping the crook of the elbow around the knee like on the right, before working deeper for the tuck. Some people can go right into it. Some people will never get it. For those people, I have news: the twist isn't in that tuck!
So many students, no matter how much I cue otherwise, want to tuck their effing elbow because they think it's more advanced. It's not. It compromises the twist if you're doing it too soon. Like backbends, twists take time to hold and deepen while maintaining length. The tuck doesn't matter, guys. Look at the photo comparison. There is literally no twist happening in the first shot. My arm is crossing in front of my body, and it's not the pose. 🙈
Pay attention! Going for what you think the gold is in every pose will not make you advanced. The tuck is a matter of body differences and practice. Not from practicing a tuck, but from working the spine! Twist well, friends! 😘✌

Отно из 100-тни моих любимых упражнений из моего личного опыта.
Интенсивная работа на мешке при помощи резинового жгута. Задача не подпускать к себе боксерскую грушу. Хорошо отрабатывается навык работы на ближней и средней дистанции. Здесь главное поимать ритм. Упражнение отнимает много сил. Реально хватает 3 раундов по 2 минутки. Усталость такая как будто реально работешь на спаринге. Я тут еще халтурю не подетски😎
Очень много плюсов: -хорошо горит жир😁
-тренируется функциональная выносливость
-тренируется навык самозащиты
Кстати для работы на мешке прихожу я рано утром пока нет людей так как фитнесисты и бодибилдеры не любят, когда кто то рядом чтото бьет или машит руками. Я стараюсь уважать всех посетителей зала🙏

DM me👆and let’s get together for a free session.
Hey! 🤸♀️ The gallery is already filling up with some amazing movements! I'm planning to catch up properly in bed later 👍.
In the meantime.....Day 2 #YogaBodyMoves is all about our power muscles - the #quads.
Factfile: Just as the hamstrings are a group of three muscles, the quads, or #quadriceps, are made up of four muscles (for the detail lovers, it's the rectus femoris, vastus intermedius, vastus medialis and vastus lateralis 🤓).
The quads connect the front of the hip (ilium), and top of the thigh (femur) with the lower leg (tibia), enabling movements around the hip and knee joints. A full quad stretch will therefore be felt from the front of the hip to below the knee joint! 😍 .
The quads are a key muscle group for yoga, as when they contract (shorten) they straighten (extend) the knee and bring the leg up (flexion) at the hip.
Today, we have two postures that demonstrate the different states (contracted/stretched) of these muscles:
I'm bringing you the strength pose 💪 #utkatasana (bent knee, flexed hip) - with one straight leg to really activate the quad muscle 😁. Video on slide 2 😏.
If you prefer a stretch, then check out Nadia's post of ustrasana 👌. Or, if you like to mooove, then check out Trisha's amazing flows!
Please comment or DM any of your hosts with questions 👍.

Day 2 #YogaBodyMoves - Quads (Quadriceps). Factfile: Just as the hamstrings are a group of three muscles, the quads, or quadriceps, as the name implies, are made up of four muscles (rectus femoris, vastus intermedius, vastus medialis and vastus lateralis). The quads are connected to the front of the hip (ilium), thigh bone (femur) and the lower leg (tibia), enabling movements of the leg around the hip and knee joints. A full quad stretch will therefore be felt from the front of the hip to below the knee joint! .
The quads are a key muscle group for yoga, as when they contract (shorten) they straighten (extend) the knee and bend (flex) the hip, causing a stretch in the hamstrings.
Today, we are exploring two yoga postures that demonstrate the different states (contracted/stretched) of the quads:
Quad contraction - utkatasana (bent knee, flexed hip) - with one straight leg to really activate the quad muscle.
Quad stretch - ustrasana (bent knee, extended hip). I’m showing you three variations of #camel pose or #ustrasana 🐫
It’s important to keep a long spine, tailbone and crown drawing away from each other. Create space between the vertebrae in order not to compress the lower back That way you can really focus on opening the front gate. Hands can be on the sacrum, heels or for an extra challenge and stretch, bring one foot in towards the outer hip in a #halffrog hybrid (don’t forget to do both sides 😊). Check in with Meg for the strength poses and with Trisha for transitions!
Your hosts: 🤸♀️ @yogameg.uk will bring you the strength postures
🤸♀️ @annecyogagirl will give you some stretching inspiration
🤸♀️ @trachoy.yoga - will provide ideas for transitioning between the two!

// HIP FLEXOR TIGHTNESS // Feeling tight in the hips? You aren’t alone. We spend A LOT of time sitting these days whether it’s working our 9-5, breastfeeding our baby or just wanting to sit more during pregnancy. This can all lead to stiff, inflexible, and short hip flexors. Because everything is connected in our body, tight hips can also affect our low-back creating pain or injury and it can make it harder to activate the glutes. Here are 3 of my fav dynamic stretches I have clients perform before they exercise. They not only help relieve tension in the hips, but they can improve posture by reducing anterior pelvic tilt (common in pregnancy), reduce low-back pain, and increase hip rotation & your range of motion when you perform lower-body exercises (think better squat performance). .
90-90 FLOW: Sit on the floor with your legs in a 90/90 position. Front leg will be bent to 90 degrees with your knee in line with your hip and your foot in line with your heel. Back leg will be at your side with your foot in line with your knee. On an exhale, lift your back & front knee and rotate them externally and internally, respectively, to the other side. Try to lengthen through the spine as you go back and forth. Arms can be in front, on your bump if you’re pregnant, or on the ground behind you. Perform 10-20 reps. Tip: For a deeper stretch, lean towards your front knee by bending at the waist and come back to center before you rotate sides. You’ll feel this release in the front leg’s hip and glute. .
½ KNEELING PELVIC TILTS: Keep ribs over hips and your front knee over the heel. Exhale and tuck your pelvis forward. Hold for 1-2 counts and then un-tuck/release from the stretch. Repeat 10x and then switch legs. .
SINGLE-LEG ADDUCTOR STRETCH: Come onto hands and knee position with your shoulders over your wrists and your knees directly under your hips. Extend one leg out to the side so it’s level with your hip. Curl the toes under on the back supporting leg. As you exhale, push your butt back towards your heels while keeping your back and arms straight. You’ll feel this in your inner thigh. Perform 10-15 reps and switch to the other side. #trimesterfitbody#mobility
