📷- Well finished off my last workout of 2016 with an arm workout and feeling a little swole. Haha! Leg workout tomorrow to bring in the New Year and 2017. Here's to bigger and better things and new beginnings. Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year!

I can't be more thankful to have yoga in my life. It's made me a happier and healthier person physically and mentally. It's helped me through situations where I may have overreacted and has helped so much with anxiety.
We often forget to simply breathe in our every day lives. Whenever you feel overwhelmed, angry, sad or any sort of uncomfortable feeling, before saying or doing anything try taking a deep breath in and a long exhale out. It's helped me a lot and I hope it can help you too.
WEEK 2 ARMS&ABS: COMEPLETE 👏🏼✔️ my arms are seriously SO out of shape, so today was definitely a challenging workout. The whole time I kept fantasizing my post workout smoothie 😍 it kept me going! One of my goals while completing the #12weekchallenge
is to gain strength specifically in my upper body 💪🏼😏 each push-up is getting a TINY bit easier and I can't wait to do 100 in a row (one day!!!🤞🏼😝) happy hump day everyone! ✌🏼
And finally finishing my day with this beauty!❤️💪 still looking fight ready after taking a break from boxing and work on strength.
💪 Health Tip of the Day # 093
I've been trying to bring up some lagging body parts and the best way to do that is simply more volume. Incorporate a couple sets at the end of each workout if it's a less intense exercise ie. Arm exercises for bringing up the biceps and triceps 👍
Also, excuse me for being super exhausted in this clip.. Dem rack pulls got me gassed! 😁
What did you guys train today?
...I have such a love hate relationship with this beast of a machine. The love is getting stronger though! ❤
In the beginning I wasn't able to complete 10 minutes without my knees crying out in pain, gasping for air and wishing it was over. Now when I don't do cardio for a day I miss it and it doesn't hurt anymore! However if I tried to run the stairs outside I would probably fail miserably! 😂
You might be almost there.... Giving up isn't an option
📷 - Starting to lean out slowly but surely. It's most certainly about time! For all my new years resolutioners out there- keep it up!!! You're already 18days in!!! I think they say it takes 3 weeks to start a habit or routine or something like that. WE'RE ONLY 3 DAYS AWAY!!! Trust me, you will get less #sore
just keep killing it!!! Working out is the cheapest most under rated form of therapy! Let's keep this momentum going and keep our resolution this year! The only failure we're going to have is every set! Leave nothing in the tank! *Make sure you hit up @hercscityplace
for your post workout shakes, protein hot chocolate, and any other supplement needs!*
-yes we are going to go after dinner I promise😂

A great way to achieve at least 100 push ups in your workout routine is to perform different push up variations.
Push ups can be boring if you stick to the traditional setup. However, adding in multiple variations has potential to advance your workouts!
Try this push up circuit at the end of your workouts or integrate it throughout your workout.
Perform 5 reps of each push up. Complete 3-4 sets. This way you can reach 100 quick push ups in a more creative way!
I've been busy adjusting to my new semester at college this past week, but I got tagged by this awesome girl @zfitness4life
to share 10 non-fitness related things about me, so here they are:
1. When I was barely a year old and just learning to walk, I fell and split my lip open on some gravel. My parents say I was happily singing in the emergency room with a bloody lip (until the doctor started stitching me up, that is). 😂
2. I've been travelling back to Greece every couple of years since I was 9 months old - my mom's entire side of the family lives there. ❤️
3. I've tried to start a YouTube channel before but I failed miserably LOL, probably because I felt too shy in front of the camera. 🙈
4. I'm really into the idea of minimalism and admire those who have managed to make it a lifestyle. I hope to do the same one day. 🙏🏼
5. I looove perfume and have a collection of scents on my dresser - so I can definitely appreciate when someone smells good. Like, dude, dab a bit of nice cologne on you and I'm just... 😻 haha
6. I was originally in teacher's college, but had a sinking feeling it wasn't gonna be the career for me... I'm now a business marketing student and genuinely interested in what I'm learning every day. ☺️
7. I'm the middleborn child, and I think I definitely fulfill the middleborn stereotype of always being the one to compromise and mediate conflict. I hate conflict/confrontation. 🙅🏻
8. I am part Armenian from my father's side - my grandmother's Armenian but she passed before I was born. I always wished I knew more about that aspect of my background and hope to travel to Armenia one day. ✈️
9. I didn't have my first phone (Blackberry Curve... who remembers BBM 🙋🏻) until I graduated high school at 17 - my parents didn't want me getting myself in trouble with boys LOL. 👀
10. I want to FedEx you one single cookie if you took the time to read through all this. You smart. You loyal. I appreciate you. *Khaled voice* 🍪😂
I'm tagging these beautiful ladies: @quadsinheels
, and @sanchezarelisalc
because your feeds inspire me fitness-wise & I'd love to know more about who you are outside the gym haha ✌🏼😋
What ever your practice "Practice" 🙏

Definition is fading away but mass is slowly accumulating. I didn't think it was that challenging to put extra pounds on. I hope I'll reach my target weight before is start cutting in a few months. #edychkovski #bulking
Kings and Queens 👑. SOAK AND ROAST YOUR NUTS TO INCREASE BIOAVAILABILITY OF NUTRIENTS 🌊🥔 In the video I said roast them at 150 degrees for 8-12 hours, but just roast them until they're at your desired crunch level. You can even leave them out and let them naturally dehydrate if you don't want to use the oven, but they won't taste nearly as good
Everything in the video excluding the chickpeas cost me $118 at Bulk Barn (with student discount) which seems expensive, but it should last me 2-3 weeks. Besides, your health is priceless so you should be willing to make whatever investment is necessary. A quick message for all the lost ones out there chasing dollars and status.. True riches are found in having a healthy mind, body, and soul 🙏🏽☮🕉☯

The shoulder is the most mobile joint and the most susceptible to injury. When the arm moves, the scapula also moves to position the glenoid to assist in shoulder movement. Because the scapula has no bony articulations, muscles attached to the scapula are responsible for its movement and its stabilization. Scapular muscles contract in coordination with the rotator cuff to anchor the scapula and move the shoulder efficiently. Consequently, imbalances and/or weakness of the scapular musculature can result in shoulder dysfunction and lead to injury. Resistance exercises can be done to strengthen the scapular muscles and reduce the risk of injury.
Always remember to release all muscles that could compromise the scapular mobility before performing these movements to get the full benefit of them!
The muscles of the shoulder work in coordination with the scapular muscles for proper functioning of the shoulder joint. If scapular muscles are not balanced or strong enough, shoulder injury can result. Performing prone T, and Y exercises as well as these Scapular depression and retractions. All these can aid in the recovery and prevention of a shoulder injury. Try these exercises at home or work with one of our coaches to show you more shoulder stability exercises!
