A short and simple mobility flow to unlock your hips, move better, and feel better. Image
1. Worlds Greatest Stretch:

One of my favorites.

Do a few reps of around 10-30 seconds on each side. Image
2. Hip Flexor/Quad Stretch

Put a pillow on the floor and your knee right on top.

You can put your back ankle on a couch instead of holding it to make it easier.

Hold it for around 30 seconds for 2-3 reps.

Especially important if you sit a lot. Image

You were born a lion, but society wants you a sheep.


The Lion and the Sheep.

A classic red pill story.

Read at your own discretion.
~~ This is a copy I found online of an ancient story I stumbled upon some time ago ~~

I'm not sure of the author it originated from but since then it's been taken by many different cultures and told in different versions.

If you know the original source, please let me know. 👇
Having lost its way, a baby lion wandered for days, alone, forlorn, anxious at finding itself in a strange and dangerous environment. Weakened from hunger, it came upon some sheep.

~Fix Your Text Neck~

//A Thread//

Painful, doesn't look great, and it's horrible for your spine.

Get to it before it gets to you.
With our phones becoming more and more ingrained in our day to day lives.

"Text Neck" has become a more common issue.

So much so that we even have a name for it.
Once this is more advanced, it becomes more difficult to reverse.

Luckily with just a few tweaks to your posture and implementing a couple of exercises, you can avoid this altogether.

A simple guide to avoiding wrist pain/problems in the future.

Especially important if you use a computer/phone a lot.

Read Below 👇 Image
For starters, why is this important?

Because as humans we aren't designed to maintain our wrists in the position below for 8 hours per day.

So it only makes sense that doing this would lead to dysfunction and pain. Image
There's a phrase that says "If you don't use it, you lose it."

That applies here in the sense that if you aren't moving your wrist joint.

You lose that motion and it gets harder to do.

10 of my favorite quotes from one of the greatest boxers of all time.

The one and only Manny Pacquiao. Image
1. “No notes. You speak from deep in your heart. It’s easy.”

The one that is going to change your twitter game.

Forget what you think you need to write.

Write from the heart.

Watch your account explode.
2. “You train hard and I’ll train hard, and may the best man win, and good luck to both of us.”

Respecting your opponent is respecting yourself.

You need to go up against the best in order to be the best version of yourself.
