Totally counting Friday jams last night as a crazy cardio sesh. Threw it back to neyo, sean Paul, kelis and fatman scoop for 4 hours and this girl is feeling it today 😂 So Just spent the last hour eating various things dipped in a chocolate fountain but it’s all about #balance and #moderation right ?! 🙃🙃🙃 happy Monday 💫

I’m not a victim. My life has not been perfect and people have not always been kind to me. I haven’t always been kind to them either. I have a story, however, it does not define me. I will not give the things that have happened power over me. It’s my choice to stay stuck, to stand still paralyzed by life and circumstance. I’m too strong. I’m a Bellatrix. If I refuse to let go and move on I’m the only one that loses. I choose to smile through it all. #MeToo
Here a 45 degree front lever is shown.
In the calisthenics realm of static holds, the importance of training exercises through a full range of motion is often overlooked. Training holds of the planche and front lever will eventually give you the ability to hold these positions, but the range of movement of strength gains is limited.
To be able to lift to front lever from hanging or lower from handstand to planche, strength training needs to address the range between these positions too! For this reason, I recommend dynamic exercises always compliment isometric (static) training. If positional weaknesses become apparent, static holds or partial range exercises at this particular zone are a great way to correct that.
Happy training everybody :)
