Loving rehab on the foot, I mean obvs I’d rather be back to normal! But I’m just so pleased to be able to work my feet, get my butt back on the reformer and start working into the ligaments, arch and bones in the feet, a gentle #footwork#exercise on the #jumpboard although no jumping for me yet sadly! But really focusing on keeping those #hips and #pelvis still in side work, don’t underestimate this one- it’s takes a lot of mini muscle groups to keep the upper body still!
• Che cos’è il Body-Flying?
É un allenamento che unifica diverse tipologie di discipline come lo Yoga, il Pilates, la Danza e la ginnastica artistica. Si tratta di un allenamento che avviene principalmente in sospensione grazie al supporto di uno strumento innovativo: un’amaca realizzata con lo stesso tessuto dei paracadute e dotata di alcune maniglie posizionate a diverse altezze regolabili.
Il Body-Flying è un attrezzo estremamente versatile e offre un ricco repertorio di esercizi in piedi, a terra, in sospensione nell’amaca.
Questo metodo di allenamento sfrutta la forza di gravità, il peso del corpo e l’equilibrio, giocando con il corpo con la piacevole sensazione di fluttuare nell’aria e potersi muovere liberamente nello spazio. Lo scopo è quello di riuscire ad eseguire i movimenti con fluidità, controllo e precisione. Solo grazie alla sinergia tra impegno muscolare e concentrazione mentale si riesce a governare un supporto instabile quale è l’amaca: essa può diventare sia un sostegno nel movimento, grazie al fatto che consente di sfruttare tutti i piani dello spazio a 360° superando i limiti imposti da un allenamento a corpo libero tradizionale, sia un elemento di maggiore difficoltà nell’esecuzione di esercizi progressivamente più impegnativi.
• A chi è rivolto?
Può essere utilizzato per lezioni di gruppo o individuali ed è adatto a tutti coloro che vogliono cimentarsi con un attrezzo sfidante, divertente ed innovativo, sia per coloro che si avvicinano all’attività fisica a corpo libero, sia per gli atleti che vogliono migliorare le loro performance.
Good morning and Happy Saturday!

Ad some extra crunch to your workout by putting the box in front of shoulder rests while doing the Elephant and push packs with knees off.

I had to shorten reps for video but try 10 to 12 reps each exercise 2 Springs for elephant and push backs and 1 spring for ab exercises holding legs in the air. Let’s Burn 🔥 🔥
5 Ways to Keep Your Spine Healthy and Happy
1. Let your spine really rest while sleeping.
While you're lying down, all the structures in your spine that have worked hard all day finally have an opportunity to relax and be rejuvenated. To make the most of this time, you need a mattress and pillows that allow your spine to rest in a supported and comfortable way.
2. Exercise your core to strengthen abs and back muscles.
Your core muscles—your lower back and abdominal muscles—need to be strong and supple in order to support your spine and take pressure off your lower back.
3. Your shoes need to support your spine.
Whether you're walking for exercise or just to get where you're going, the shoes you wear play an important role in supporting your lower back. Good shoes provide a supportive base that helps the spine and body remain in alignment. For example, make sure the area of the shoe that fits the back of your heels is snug, but not overly tight, as a good fit in the heel prevents over pronation or supination—or too much rolling of the foot to the outside or inside.
4. Enjoy the benefits of massage.
Did you know that massage has a number of therapeutic benefits in addition to general stress relief? A good massage will help increase endorphins—the body's natural painkiller—in your bloodstream, which in turn may allow you cut back on pain medications. Massage can also encourage blood flow, which in turn brings healing nutrients to the affected area and can speed healing.
5. Practice good ergonomics while sitting—and limit total sitting time.
The discs in your lower spine are loaded 3 times more while sitting than standing, so long periods of sitting can create or aggravate a painful back condition. Moreover, when sitting at a desk and/or looking at a computer screen, our natural tendency is to slouch and lean forward, stressing our lumbar discs even more.

Adaptogens such as ashwagandha help to bring the body back into balance. Ashwagandha has shown a remarkable ability to lower cortisol levels and stabilize thyroid hormones.
In India, ashwagandha has earned the nickname “Strength of the Stallions,” because it gives a boost to the immune system after illness. •
⭐️Over 200 studies suggest that ashwagandha may help:
* Enhance thyroid function
* Treat adrenal fatigue
* Increase endurance
* Reduce stress
* Decrease the degeneration of brain cells
* Balance blood sugar
* Lower cholesterol
* Strengthen immunity
Ashwagandha has the unique ability to help our body manage stress. •
⭐️ In times of stress, cortisol, a stress-hormone, floods the body.
This mechanism is great during times of acute stress when we need to activate the fight-or-flight response and either flee or face a stressor. But when chronic stress, endemic to today’s fast-paced society, sticks around, so, too, does the cortisol. •
⭐️Increased levels of cortisol have been linked to :
* Type 2 diabetes
* Obesity and weight gain
* Immune system suppression
* Cardiovascular issues
* Gastrointestinal complications
* Fertility problems
* Thyroid disorders
⭐️Research suggests that ashwagandha may help lower cortisol production, thereby improving resistance to stress. ⭐️A 2012 study made up of 64 people and published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine showed that ashwagandha significantly reduced stress and cortisol levels compared to the effects of a placebo pill.
