3 Upper Body Mobility Drills To Build A Strong Foundation For Lifting
If you’ve found yourself in the pattern of getting excited about a muscle definition goal –> then doing too much intensity/weight/volume too quickly –> then finding yourself super tight, with injuries and dysfunction –> then feeling as though your consistency and enjoyment of the exercises is suffering, then this post is for you!
Today we are talking about 3 of my favourite upper body movement drills to set a strong physical foundation for lifting weights.

One Pan Mexican Frittata
Frittatas are a breakfast staple in our house. If we are home on the weekends and not on our way to the ski hill I take the extra few minutes to whip up a frittata. We eat them so often that my two year old daughter calls a frittata ‘eggs-tata’.

In 2014 I didn’t have much to heal from so it wasn’t a topic that was on my personal or professional horizon when I began to write and share my life on social media. But sometimes life has plans that take us down a path we would never expect.
4 Essential Mantras To Help You Actually Do Your Workouts
One of the most common themes that comes up with myself and my clients is the issue of being hard on ourselves on our health and fitness journey. We often think we need to be more strict, more intense, more perfect or more committed in order to realize our fitness goals. So we get frustrated with ourselves for missed workouts, we berate ourselves for less than optimal food choices and we unknowingly create more stress and shame than is actually helpful.
