❔ LE SAVIEZ-VOUS - Spécial étirements
Les étirements, c'est pour quoi faire au juste ? Quand faut-il les faire ? 🤔 🧐 L'étirement musculaire est la mise en tension d'un muscle depuis un point fixe. Il permet de développer l'élasticité du muscle, et donc d'améliorer sa souplesse. L'étirement peut aussi être réalisé pour calmer les courbatures et prévenir d'éventuelles blessures ⚠️ Attention à ne pas confondre avec la mobilité. L'étirement est de la souplesse « passive » tandis que la mobilité est de la souplesse « fonctionnelle ». Quelqu'un qui sait faire un grand écart peut être incapable de faire un squat à amplitude complète 🏋️♂️ ⌚️ Les étirements peuvent s'effectuer en 3 fois : ◽️ Avant le début d'une séance, lors de l'échauffement : ils doivent être actifs (flexions) et avoir une amplitude minime pour ne pas forcer l'extension du muscle, qui pourrait ruiner votre séance 👉 ça débloque vos articulations
◽️ Après la séance (5-10 minutes après l'effort) : ils peuvent être statiques mais ne doivent pas dépasser les 15 secondes par mouvement 👉 ça évite certaines courbatures
◽️ 2h après l'effort ou sur une journée off : c'est l'étirement assouplissement, entre 45 secondes à 2-3 minutes par mouvement. Il nécessite au préalable quelques minutes d'échauffement (jumping jacks, montée de genoux) 👉 c'est le moment idéal pour améliorer sa souplesse

Getting my mobility mork done😁 just to let you in on a little secret, I can't touch my toes without bending my knees🤣 genuinely one of my main goals over the next 12 weeks is to be able to do that🤣 anyways, going for my first run later in a long time🤗 plan on just doing a steady 3 miles to kick things of, gonna aim to do it in under 25 mins🙌 by the end of these 12 weeks I will be running 6 mile runs as my small/fast runs but there is a lot of work to do between now and then😁 #runfatboyrun
I did movement practice everyday as part of my morning ritual to have a kickass day. I haven’t done it much lately but I’m getting back into it. No set routine, nothing planned, just flow for 5- however many minutes my day allows letting my body lead. Both static and dynamic stretches, hip flows, yoga stuff, breathing... just taking care of myself so I can give to others. #rituals#kickass#morning#movement

Hamstrings... Anyone else is struggling with them? 🤫🤪😫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have been practicing yoga for several years now and I am still struggling with my tight hamstrings. I was a runner 🏃♀️ for a long time. So I guess that has a lot to do with this issue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a result, I had to come up with some sequence for opening up the hamstrings. Now I am doing it every single day. Fingers crossed 🤞 that my hammies will open by Christmas... hopefully, this year haha 😂. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Never mind my hams, if you have naturally tight hamstrings (the muscles on the back of your tights) they can create some issues related to body pains. Most of the time they will not cause a problem but they can be more prone to bad tears and may contribute towards injuries such as lower back pain and popliteus injury ( the Popliteus is a small muscle located at the back of the knee joint) as well as limiting your sporting performance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I wanted to share the sequence for opening the tight hamstrings with you. Look out for the new article on my IG stories to check out how you can loosen the tight hamstrings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Знаете, это удивительно приятно, управлять и договариваться со своим собственным телом.
Йога — это самоизучение. А изучать себя, это самое сложное испытание!
Следуйте голосу, который направляет вас в потоке, концентрируйте своё внимание на дыхании и физическом теле, в таком случае у вас просто не останется времени и возможности убежать мыслями и отвлечься на посторонние звуки.
Именно в такие моменты,практика помогает увидеть возможности своего тела и даёт уверенности в своих силах.
Практикуйте регулярно, пробуйте разные практики и не бойтесь новых ощущений!
Напоминаем, что первое пробное занятие - бесплатно 🙏🏻
Yoga and surfing make a killer combo.
We're looking for a Yoga Instructor, whom preferably surfs, or has more of a pre-surf/surf warm-up type stretching technique. For Saturday mornings 9-10am at Tower 25 in Bolsa Chica State Beach. Our Yoga is Free but we encourage donations. Our Yoga Instructors keep all the donations.
We currently offer year-round reasonably priced surf lessons, hosting Free OCR Beach Training with @hardkourperformance both Saturdays and Sundays, as well as our Free beach yoga on Sundays with @namaste.neurotic , which is more of an intermediate/advanced level of yoga.
So we would like our Saturday yoga to be generally more of a beginner level and to focus on stretching the areas listed below.
Surfing demands a lot of mobility, balance, strength and focus. Before, during, and after a surf session, surfers often experience:
• Tightness in the hips
• Lower Back Pain
• Stiffness in the back, neck and shoulders
• Closed Chest
• Joint Pain (esp. Wrists and Ankles)
• Tightness in side body
If interested in becoming our Saturday morning beach yoga instructor please call Reggie at

Your body is yours to enjoy.
What does this phrase mean to you?
Do you give yourself the space and love to experience pleasure with in your physical self?
Your body has been crafted to bring you pleasure and be experienced with all of its beautiful intricacies, receptors, muscles, tissues, softness, etc.
We often get so caught up in looking at ourselves with judgment from an outside perspective and forget about all of the incredible pleasure these masses of flesh have to offer us.
Enjoy your body, use it everyday that you can.
Find pleasure in your physical through movement, touch, sensation, dance, expression, and everything in between.
When you give yourself permission to enjoy your body, you give yourself permission to enjoy life.
Reframe your mindset towards your physical being.
Transforming your relationship with your body can transform you as a whole.
Treat your body well…move often, breathe deeply, speak kindly, nourish, hydrate, support and love your body not for the way it looks but for the ability to support a quality life of pleasure and experience.
Your body is yours to enjoy.
Enjoy away. 💛
Around 2 years ago I pulled my hamstring doing this very pose/stretch for the first time and it’s taken me this long to really feel comfortable enough to stretch this deeply again.
Not because my body wasn’t ready, that healed well in a few months or so, but the experience of the injury itself made me a lot more conscious and aware of my limitations. And, really gave me more insight into what is and isn’t necessary for my self and my practice.
Pulling a hamstring is far from a massive injury but it still left my ego battling an identity crises not being able to practice as I was used to. (Which was ironic really as it was my ego that got me Into the mess in the first place 🤯!) But, what I learned from it was how to know myself better, how to practice with deeper awareness and respect for my body for a stronger and safer practice. And, to focus on building stability alongside flexibility.
Moral or the story; No matter how big or small, the glory of the pose is never worth an injury. But, when injury occurs, use it as a positive learning experience for your own development.
Now, practice mindfully, people ☺️🧘🏻♀️✌🏼 💜
Working on it 🤩 #scorpion
Really taking time to stretch more often. Stretching helps keep the muscles flexible, strong and healthy. We need this flexibility to maintain a range of motions in our joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Which can put you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage. Take care of yourselves fit fam ❤️ we only have 1 body! ✨
Tight neck or traps? No problem. I got you covered with this mobility drill. This is a simple one that only requires a LAX ball and somewhere to jam your shoulder into. If you have both of those things, then let’s get into it.
To perform this drill correctly:
1. start by placing the LAX ball on the TOP of your trap. A lot of people end up putting it into their pecs and that’s great and all, but it won’t release your traps, which is the goal.
2. Lean over and jam the top of your shoulder into the rack with the ball ontop.
3. Reach the arm that the ball is on forward, overhead.
4. Pull the arm back like you’re doing an overhead row.
5. Rinse and repeat 10-15 times, slow and controlled.
And there ya have it. This should provide relief to any neck pain you may be experiencing and could even help with shoulder and upper back discomfort as well.
What’s your favourite trap mobility drill? Let me know in the comments or via DM!
Here is one of my favorite warmup routines with the woody band.
It’s a great equipment to help you get a deeper stretch by yourself.
Remember that warming up and stretching is just as important as working out itself.
It’s helps with your recovery and minimizes injuries.
