Ever thought about getting into (or back into) running? Not sure where to start? At Hot Mama, we offer an extensive training program designed to help you build up your strength and endurance to prepare you for the big day... our group race! Our 16 week Half Marathon training is already underway but you still have time to join the 12 week 5/10K training on March 10th!
What do we do at Run Group? Well, first we have a meeting to discuss progress/challenges and we often invite guest speakers. THEN we follow that up with an effective STRENGTH workout. Much attention is paid to the lower body (booty/legs) and core as these are the muscles used while running - our goal is to strengthen them to help prevent and/or minimize injury. Then, runs are given as homework!
Message me for details and to register today!
#strengthtraining is more than just looking good. And it's more than just feeling good. The research now shows what we've known for decades - strength training and conditioning reverses the clock and adds years of functional health to your life.
Our team lives and breathes our unique approach, so that we're creating programs and protocols that we know are transformative, powerful, and most importantly, sustainable. It's important that we create absolute trust with everyone that we work with, and we start by embodying our values, and never asking you to do something that we don't do ourselves.
I have been fighting demons for the last 6 months. The kind of demons that tell you to give up and that your dream is unrealistic. After breaking my wrist, fighting to fix my hip, crippling anxiety, and just the back to back set backs it’s been pretty grim.
Despite the nagging voice in my head telling me I can’t, I pushed through betting on myself. I’m doing the things I have not been willing to do like stretching after EVERY session, eating better, prioritizing sleep, and staying hydrated/no more energy drinks. Today I saw a glimpse of my hard work pay off!
I paused snatched 140lbs today and haven’t snatched anything close to that in almost 6 months! Not to mention I’m over 5lbs lighter than when I hit this originally. No matter what your dream, no matter the setbacks KEEP FREAKING GOING!! Here’s to this year being different and MAKING my dreams come true!

How to get back to the gym after a heavy night of partying?
How often do you have a heavy night of drinking and feel miserable the next morning? because drinking interferes with brain activity during sleep and hangover can also lead to sleep deprivation. Alcohol can also trigger migraines and give you terrible headaches; These are few tips to follow so that you feel better the next morning and you don’t miss your workouts:
1)Drink fluids: Basics are always the best, Alcohol promotes urination and this leads to a lot of fluid loss. Have a lot of water after a heavy night of drinking.
2)Consume Carbohydrates: Drinking may lower blood sugar levels, So most of the fatigue and headaches as brain is functioning without its main fuel. So, Carbohydrates are not your enemy. Indulging and lack of balance is your biggest enemy.
3)Drink Coffee: Yes, You heard us right! Drink coffee, Caffeine is a diuretic(dehydrates your body) but after consuming enough water a black coffee should act as a stimulant against your heavy head.

Are you training plyometrics? If you have a goal of becoming more explosive and developing your athleticism, you should be. Yes, lifting heavy weight ‘explosively’ will help you develop that necessary strength but, be specific to what you want to do.. wanna jump higher, go jump, wanna run faster, go run.... but you gotta do it THE RIGHT WAY. Plyometrics is the best way to develop explosiveness, without a doubt. .
Have a goal, have a plan. Completion is the promise.

Front squat 365x3x3, 365x6
Nice bounce back session from last weeks front squats
Invece di immedesimarvi nei ruoli di epidemiologi, esperti statisti ed economisti, usate sti cazzo di social per far vedere quanto so belle le "nostre montagne" ....ps: Io lo so che non c'entro un cazzo, però mi piaceva la foto..... Andiamooooo💪💪💣💣❤️🐉
Been a minute since I’ve hit you with a gym bathroom selfie 🤳 but felt so strong post workout this am that I was excited to share. I worried when I backslid last fall that I had undone all my progress I’d worked so hard for. But actually because I had that history of progress & a good baseline of skills from working with @brit_rand that when I was finally ready to stop making excuses and do the @physiqonomics strategic crash diet protocol it turned out to be pretty easy to get back to where I needed to be. And despite the name, it’s a pretty “life friendly” diet. Aggressive calorie deficit, high protein, moderate resistance exercise & steps. And designed to be short and intense -6 weeks. So glad I took the plunge!
SATURDAY CORE CHALLENGE 😍
Repeat these two exercises (1: crisscross, 2: scissors) back to back with the following reps:
🌟 The goal is to get through the whole sequence without a break! Even better: repeat 3 times! 🌟
Let me know how it goes 🙌🏼
🟠ORANGE INERTIA WAVES ONLY
USE CODE ; IWORANGE
INERTIAWAVE.COM ☑️With the INERTIA WAVE training velocity is used, and must be meant maintain by the end-user “that’s you” during the entire exercise.
Moreover, this forces the user to train or compete at a higher level of intensity via shorter window, and it’s effects will last a longer duration of time, that’s the “carryover principal”
⚠️ REAL . TALK ⚠️
Today, I’m celebrating a small victory. I was able to run again after taking 6+ weeks off to let my hamstrings have a break. NO PAIN - tears of joy right here! 😭
So much #gratitude for being “able” to exercise 🙌 Yes, I said I was THANKFUL I got to exercise; not “I have to exercise”. Stop right there & throw that negativity crap out the window. Come on now! We are SO much better than that!!
As many of you know, I’ve had a slight setback with hamstring tendonosis since competing in Kona 2017. Other injuries have come & gone (including my bike crash May 2016) but this injury is persistent with keeping me on the sideline.
The feelings of depression, discouragement & isolation from the sport I love but can’t physically be apart of is disheartening. Its frustrating to work so hard for something over the years than suddenly get thrown a curve ball. It’s mentally defeating + exhausting 😤
It’s OK to be sidelined. It’s OK to have a setback & need to rebuild yourself back up. You don’t have to hide. Yes, it’s going to be a lot of work + probably even be painful & uncomfortable (temporarily) but do you want to live life feeling sorry for yourself? Playing the victim card? Not having what your heart truly desires most?
I’ve been there. Heck, I’ve been there off & on over the years. I have SO much empathy + compassion for others who are dealing with these obstacles & it seems like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.
I’m telling you, celebrating the small victories:
🔹Getting up early to exercise
🔹Making a home-cooked meal
🔹Meditation & breathing techniques
These things WORK. They help to build you up & pull you out of the deep dark hole you are currently living in.
You just need to DECIDE and pick ONE thing to work on. Then “slowly” build from there. No expectations are needed here (please leave these at the door) & choose to decide. It’s really that simple.
Sometimes, I forget I have that kind of power & control over my life. Anyone with me on this? Just think, you already have the power inside YOU.
I believe in you & I know you can get through whatever it is that’s holding you back from being the best version of yourself 💛💛💛
When it’s freezing out you have to post a picture of yourself happy in the sun, right? 🥶☀️

Built this booty from scratch (maybe with a little help from @angelesathletics). I remember when we first started to train together, he told me I had a pancake butt... he also told me I wouldn’t be able to fit into pants if we started to train together.... SURPRISE, he was right 😂😂. We’ve set goals time and time again and guess what? We crushed them!
It’s a beautiful day to be alive! Set your intentions and win the day🤗

Staying hydrated during my workouts is crucial! Your muscles are made up from 75% water and require extra hydration when undergoing intense exercise. Bcaa’s provide the body with extra hydration and help prevent muscle breakdown during prolonged exercise 💪🏽
You can consume Bcaa’s before, during or after exercise but I like to take mine during as it makes a great tasting sports drink! Why don’t you try @premiumraws_ great tasting range of bcaa’s and get 35% off with FRAN35 💯
