Cruise control when deployed will attempt to keep the car at a constant speed set by the driver. Pretty handy if you're driving straight down the highway, singing at the top of your lungs with your mochachino latte in one hand 🚙 On the other hand, cruise control when you're making sharp turns can be dangerous to you and your car ⚠️ I will admit to be guilty of this and feeling my heart rate spike as the steering wheel rattles in my grip 🙋🏻♀️ It's the same thing in life. There are times where cruise control is great. 👩👧👦The kids are little and you are soaking up every single second
☺️ The family is healthy and you actually get to go on that forever planned vacation. 👩🏻💻You're crushing things at the office with less than 100 unread emails in your inbox and actually see the impact you are making day to day.
The problem with cruise control is when we leave it on too long. Life lived too long in cruise control can lead to weight gain, loneliness, anxiety, uncertainty, and unfillfillment.
How do you know if it's time to get off cruise?
▶️ you have zero passion for your career
▶️ you feel disconnected from YOU, your family or friends
▶️ you feel out of control or out of touch
▶️ you are not crystal clear on WHY you wake up each morning
▶️ you are unmotivated or uninspired ▶️ you feel like there is not enough time/energy to be the person you want to be
▶️ you can't remember the last time you had fun or laughed so hard you cried
Woman, wake up 📣 It's time to get off cruise control. There is only one life to live and the clock is ticking 🕗 Do not waste another second in the passenger seat of your own life. Get your life off cruise control and drive life it like you stole it! 🚙💨 Curious where to start?

Laurie Amat improvised site-specific vocal performance using both acoustic voice and live electronic looping. She’ll be experimenting with the sounds of the hall from the stage and balcony, vertical and horizontal.
She’s not sure what’s going to happen, but she’s looking for an adventure!
We are always looking for joints to be mobile enough to load force efficiently, and stable enough to use that force in an efficient manner. Every joint moves in a way to allow the efficient production and transfer of force. If a joint is lacking the appropriate mobility it will have trouble loading. If a joint is unstable, it will have trouble exploding. Both cases affect our performance and injury potential.
When we approach any movement problem it is helpful to know if it's primarily mobility based or stability based. Is the biggest limitation because they just can't move? Or is the biggest limitation because they don't feel stable? When looking at the foot and ankle, an unstable foot, can contribute to an immobile ankle, and vice versa. Here is a way to determine if your foot needs more strength, or more mobility. I learned about Foot Typing from @dremilydpm ‘s book, Barefoot Strong. Here is how I apply it to rowers.
Read the how-to on my blog. Link in bio.
After warming up a bit, this is an option to stretch in the quads and hips a little deeper. Please take the time to not rush lifting your hips to high to keep the motion flowing. Once you extend your legs out, flex your toes to engage your legs then fold forward. Next option is moving into the pigeon pose of crossing one leg in front of you and folding forward over it, again with slow motion, then twisting to each side while leaning in and out of the fold slowly to massage the hip flexors using your own weight and movement. Switch legs. Then rising to standing for a forward fold, you can sink into a squatting position and use your arms to press the knees away from each other. Press back up to a wide leg forward fold. Pace all movements with your breathe. Follow up by shaking out arms and legs with big deep breathes. ✨✨✨We will work on practices like this at our Movement Arts Workshop this weekend. We will take EXTRA time to go over position and alignment while learning to let go of what we think it’s supposed to look like and focus on what it CAN feel like. Learning to surrender to self care and stay within what we can actually do today, so we can grow more as we practice. Go to stochasticindustries.com for more details!!! See you on the mat! ✨✨✨ #aikido#movement#yoga#breathe#makethespace#takethespace#arts#practice#compassion#flow#surrender#flexibility#patience#training#selfcare#day1#dontquit#justshowup

It’s a human superpower to bring fun and ease into any moment.
Understanding human superpowers are fascinating. Imagine if Super Man walked around all day thinking he was Clark Kent and completely forgot that he was Super Man?! As humans we have these things inside of us. That is to say, you have your own form of (insert favourite superhero name) inside you. Meaning it’s already there.
In yoga we are in a practice of undoing; the untruths we believe about ourself and life, the habits/patterns that run us in the opposite direction of where we want to go, what being connected and aligned to (fill in the blank) looks and feels like. This is when Clark Kent takes off his clothes and becomes Super Man.
The point is what we need is already within us if we have the courage to look, and the discipline/commitment to show up and do the world.
What superpower are you harnessing today? Maybe you need to remind people in the world that they have a Super Man/Wonder Woman underneath.
While he’s no Super Man, Mickey has been a global symbol of magic and possibility for decades.
Week one felt like vacation, week two I’ve been feeling out of place and confused outside of my old routine. I’m definitely feeling mixed emotions. I started my day with a short walk on the treadmill and then sitting in quiet meditation being present to how I feel today. It actually felt way better than I thought it would and I made a promise to myself that as I create my new routine I will let my former “morning commute time” be more fluid and less rigid. I have time, for me. How do you make time for you?
How many of y’all have given up already on your “new year, new decade, new 20/20 vision, new me” mantra? That whole notion sounds good until it comes down to actually putting in the work...and you find yourself still making last year’s, last decade’s, and last year’s you excuses...and still having last year’s vision. I’m just saying...It’s been cold, the weather has sucked, kids/significant other getting on your nerves, still haven’t found a companion, dead end job...I get it, I hear you...get the sh*t done anyway. Because you’ll get out of whatever funk you’re in, and then you’ll be mad at yourself that you didn’t push through to get the results you would have had otherwise...Sincerely your favorite fitness/life coach.
Today's interview is with @yogimdnet, Dr. Nadine Kelly, who is a retired M.D. and now helps women "move" through the aging process with yoga.
Aging is a part of life. It happens to all of us, but we don't have to let it be a negative, debilitating thing. Learn how to incorporate intentional movement into your life now, so you can keep moving well for the rest of it.
Action: Engage in some form of movement everyday. Find a physical exercise that you can do on a regular basis or make healthier choices daily like going up the stairs instead of the elevator, walking instead of taking the car, etc. .
Why this matters: Exercise is a Keystone habit which means it’s a catalyst for other good habits like drinking water, eating healthier and better sleep. Movement increases your mind/body/soul connection and it decreases illnesses, depression, anxiety and stress. .
J'ai une pote - que je nommerai pas mais ça commence par un C-et ça finit par un -é et au milieu il y'a la syllabe "hlo" qui ne jure que par l'astrologie et je crois que ça a un peu déteint sur moi. C'est vrai que quand elle te parle des affinités entre signes, des traits de caractères que sont censées t'avoir donné les étoiles et de toutes ces histoires d'ascendants, ça a l'air de faire sens. Pourtant elle lit juste des comptes Astro sur twitter mais c'est fascinant vous trouvez pas? Je vais pas balancer sur les signes (mais bon si vous etes belier, pas la peine de m'envoyer un DM,ça marchera jamais entre nous) mais je pense que les poissons, sagittaires et cancers ont un grand potentiel amitié avec moi. Voilà, futurs mariés et gens qui croisent ma route, ne vous étonnez pas si au détour d'une conversation, je hoche la tete d'un air entendu quand vous m'annoncez que votre belle mère est scorpion. C'est une phase, ça va passer promis. #maelysizzo

Y hoy, ya iréis entendiendo por qué... esto me pone muy feliz. 💜
TURN UP THE VOLUME 🔊
Have you ever wondered How many reps you should be doing to increase strength and size?
This was the same question @cole_yoakum3 had when discussing his training goals with us.
The official answer is, it depends... but we could also say “all the reps”. ___
The athlete featured here is currently on a program that alternates the following: .
✅Intensity High ➡️ Low ✅Volume Low ➡️ High
This allows us to do a couple things: ✅Develop technical proficiency ✅Promote anatomical adaptations
✅Increase muscle size ✅Increase CNS efficiency ✅Improve muscular endurance
Here Mr.Cole performs a set of Bench Press on his high Volume day... as you can tell, high Vol can be slightly uncomfortable 😬

🤔 Do you know how you pose? #MoveWithIvan
🙋 According to Amy Cuddy, there are two kinds of power poses - high and low power poses. “High poses” are described as open and relaxed while “low poses” are more closed off and guarded.
😜 Each pose can affect your hormone levels and confidence! Stand in front of a mirror and carefully examine your posture.
🧘♂️ What language does your body speak?
➡️ Click here to see the pictures of both high and low poses:
If I’m being honest, I love doing a lot of things. I think the more confident we become, the more limits we take off of ourselves. Myself, I love to create! I mostly do it with music but I also love to express myself outside of it. I definitely wouldn’t consider myself a full on dancer, but aside from a couple of weekly classes, I’ll lock myself in a room every now and again for an hour and just see what comes out. Allow myself and body to be free. I say all this to say, BE FREE! Forget what others say and be true to yourself. If there is something you’ve always wanted to do, dive into it...headfirst! 😉
Music: Headfirst by @officialnikka
While compared to just performing the bench press alone, all superset combinations found ⬆️ in RPE and ⬇️ in lifting performance for the bench press, there are other factors to consider such as time, efficiency ⏰ and goals.
Using the AA superset can allow one to train more than 1 muscle group without sacrificing major lifting performance 💪.This definitely is beneficial because most people have a limited amount of time to train and need to maximize their time as much as possible.
While the A-P and S-B did not perform as well and resulted in ⬆️ RPE’s, let’s not throw them out yet.
The A-P may have lead to ⬇️ in the bench press performance and ⬆️ RPE’s but it may be beneficial for someone who enjoys more fatiguing workouts and doesn’t necessarily care about maxing out their bench.
The S-B also did not have as great of performance for the bench press and RPE but it doesn’t it mean we can’t add in lighter accessory work when trying to build work capacity / volume (can't say would ever want to squat and bench sets of 10 consequtively...ever 🤢)
This study has some limitations which include the fact that they only used the bench press and that they were performing all sets of 10 (again, sets of 10 on squat + bench is no fun for anyone). Also, the A-P superset may have better outcomes for one who has higher work capacities and those who can tolerate more work with squatting movements since the metabolic demand is usually higher for lower body lifts.
In the end we have a better idea of how to use these tools 🛠 with no hard "rules" on what is "best." What are your thoughts on this paper? 🤔 Make sure to comment your thoughts or tag your lifting buddy 👇👇👇
