VIDEO SHOOT: AFTER PARTY

IMG_1902

A few weeks ago we filmed the TYE4® FUSION class for the PhysicalMind Institute Certification Program.  I earned my certification in NYC 2 years ago —» more on that here «— and now PMI is creating online training so many more people can add this class to their schedule!  FUSION is a fun class that hits the whole body and provides a challenging, safe and effective workout.

MORNING ROUTINE WORKOUT

3 minutes and DONE!

MEMEME

Don’t look at this as a workout but a part of your morning routine. It can look something like this… brush teeth… drink coffee//my go-to →Advocare Spark//or whatever makes you nice to people … TYE4 … shower … This is a PERFECT way to start your day… stretched, moving and the proper posture muscles activated. AND BONUS:: you DO get a workout!!! This tones the back, abs, arms AND legs! #WIN

MUSCLE INJURY REHAB

“Hamstring strain injuries are very common in sports.  They can become chronic, nagging injuries due to scar tissue formation with up to a 63% chance of re-injury.”  Dynamic Physical Therapy & Sports Enhancement

In high school – long, long ago – I injured my hamstring playing sports and have re-injured it many times since.  IT’S SO FRUSTURATING.  

Five months ago I developed a pinched bursa in my left hip → which led to spasms in my gluteus medius  – a TRUE pain in the butt! → and then the problem trickled down into my hamstring… because it will take any opportunity to cause me grief.

theSOLUTION

First, I got K-Laser Therapy from Laser Therapy & Chiropractic Center for my hip.  This started helping immediately and paired with icing for a few weeks, inflammation was reduced without any medication.  Then I started doing pressure point therapy for my butt muscle – basically I would sit on a tennis ball holding for intervals of 3 minutes while crying from all the pain until the spasm released. Thank you Results Physiotherapy, Murfreesboro Tn for the torturous, yet effective instruction you gave me 🙂  And finally I started using a foam roller and Tye4® to rehab that stubborn hamstring.

My BFF.  Her name is Foam Roller

The Tye4 has been HUGE in helping me maintain/regain flexibility and maintain/build strength during this time.  Over the past weeks, when my hamstring is being a nerd and causing aches and pains, I have consistently found relieve after using Tye4!  

 I also kicked my nutrition into high gear by supplementing with a few products that the pros use when they are recovering from injuries.  I figure, if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me!  I’ve added Advocare BioTools and Post-Workout Recovery Drink to my daily intake.  This, along with my basic core nutrition, has done wonders for my recovery.  

Here’s one extra tip…
IMG_0483
Tennis ball + wall + back tension = much relief!!!
Give it a try!
When dealing with muscle injuries, we need to have patience, proper resources and common sense while recovering.  I just thought I’d share what’s been going on with me.  It’s easy to get discouraged, but we gotta hang in there and keep going!  
There is too much life to live to quit. 


CUSTOMIZED TYE4® WORKOUT

Write a single exercise on a stick.  Customize your workout  
                                        An example:
  1. If you will be at home most of the day, pick 2 sticks every hour between 7 am and 7 pm and spend 5 minutes performing the exercise… or
  2. On a busy work day, pick 5 sticks in the morning and 5 in the evening… or

 

You get the idea.  Make this work for you!  The goal is to stay active, challenge your body beyond its normal load and have fun!

Tye4@ INNER THIGH WORKOUT VIDEO

Strange thing:  The past 2 weeks, I have had a number of you ask  what you need to do to tone your inner thighs.  Funny that this seems to be a theme in my life right now, so I thought I’d help you out and give you some exercises that WILL TONE UP those thighs!  In this video, I am using a Tye4@ which I find to be so much more effective than doing the same exercises with body weight alone. Take a look…

If you live in the Nashville Area, you NEED TO COME TRY OUT ONE OF MY TYE4 CLASSES!!!  I’m starting new classes in Brentwood next week at

LEG EXERCISE – STABILITY BALL WORKOUT

STABILITY BALL WORKOUT 
 
This is a great exercise to add to LEG DAY.
Grab an stability ball and jump into this leg workout with me.  It’s gentle on the knees and will make your hamstrings scream!
 

  • Don’t forget to warm-up and stretch before you begin.
  • If your muscles begin cramping, releaserub it– and rest the muscle unit feels better.  Then you can begin again.  If this happens, be encouraged that each time you perform this you are STRENGTHENING & CONDITIONING your legs, and that cramping will stop as you get stronger!

Now I’m doing this series using Tye4®!  We can use the bungees to help balance and control the movements OR make it tons more challenging!!  Check out the demo below ↓↓↓
