f**k up & smile anyways. i love this picture! it captures the real me. goofy with an ear-to-ear toothed grin, falling out of a pose i couldn't execute but tried despite my fears. at first i hesitated. eh, your core isn't engaged. eh, you're not even holding the pose. eh, could be better. screw that. that's not how life works. sometimes we just need to accept our flaws, battles, scars & transform them into badges of honor. your limitations don't define you! it's how you move when they arise that does. so step back today, try to take life a little less seriously. have some fun. fall & laugh through it. then get back up again, push until you fall, & laugh again.
To perfect this move, make sure your hips are pressed forward + your knees are back. Your head to your hips should be in a straight line as you hinge at the shoulders + activate your core to press back + then squeeze forward. If you're shaking, that means it's working 💪🏻💪🏼💪🏽💪🏾💪🏿

High absolute work loads are associated with an increase in injury risk.
When training load increases >15% from the previous week ones injury risk will escalate between 21 - 49%. Piggott et al showed that 40% of injuries were associated with a rapid change (>10%) in weekly training load in the preceding week.
Big statistics there people!
