✳️✳️✳️One year of racing for the hubs and me!!!✳️✳️✳️ Crazy to think that I started running for the first time a year ago👯! I was always told I would ✴️NEVER✴️ be able to run again after my back injury and surgery I underwent😭😭😭…. Hmm try and tell me I can’t do something☝️… Butt heads😡.
💟💟This is why I’m an extreme motivator for people to always aspire to do what they want with their bodies!!!💟💟 As long as you put in the proper training and discipline… YOU can achieve your goals!!! ❇️NEVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU YOU CANT!!!❇️ And if you are looking for help… Do your RESEARCH!! There are trainers and physical therapist out there that can help you reach your goal! No matter where you are coming from! So set your dreams and work hard to achieve them!!! The reward of accomplishing the unimaginable…. There’s just not words for it 🙌🌞!
👫Couldn’t have done it without my sexy supporter, husband, and partner in crime @ryanpridgin 🙆
AAAAAND were off!!! On our way down to Devils Garden Mud Club for our SECOND TOUGH MUDDER! Excited to be doing it with our friends and representing the 5th SLS this time (even though Ill be the only civilian in the team 💁 lol just more reason to bring out the #BEASTMODE)!

Happy Friday Eve Ya’ll!!! This workout sesh is going to be targeted for all my #runners out there 🏃🙋👟! This is a quick 6 min workout set to add to any of your routine for INJURY PREVENTION!!!
✳️Too often as runners we fall in love with ‘running’ and forget to train all aspects of our body for better biomechanical performance of out bodies!
✳️this leads to a high knee injury rate in runners bc more often than not we are quad/hami dominant and tend to be VERY WEAK in our hip musculature
✳️this compromises out knee alignment due to inadequate forces that are applied at the hip… Which ultimately control the knee!
✳️So make sure you train those hip and booth muscles 👍👌😉!!!
✳️You’ll notice greater stability through your hips and knees on runs AND BONUS… A tighter firmer all around BOOOOOTAY!!!!
✴️when performing these exercises focus on keeping your HIPS STACKED (don’t let them rock with the movement)
✴️SQUUEEEEZE your booty cheeks together!!!!
✴️keep your core contracted for extra stabilization
✴️I’m even rocking too much in these vids bc my R hip abducyors are weak! If you need extra help have a friend stand over you and squeeze at your hips to stabilize until you can find your range 💪👌💁
#MoFitVids and TAG A FRIEND YOU KNOW WOULD BENEFIT FROM THESE EXERCISES! 😘😘😘😘😘
