One of these is lying to me and I already got trust issues π.
Treadmill: 6 miles
@garminfitness watch: 5.28 miles
I actually only use the watch for heart rate monitoring. The tread mill feature is always showing me going slower than the treadmill.
the before photo there are a few big issues here that could cause serious injury and hurt your practice:
1οΈβ£ My lower back and upper back are completely ROUNDED π!! In yoga sometimes the most simple poses can be the hardest! In staff pose you should have straight posture in your spine. You can fix the rounding by engaging the core, lifting up through the back of the body (imagine someone is pulling you with a string from the top of your head), and bringing your front ribs to your hip bones (knit your core together!)π
2οΈβ£ My thighs are not engaged causing my thighs and feet to roll outwards!! ππΌ The biggest misconception in seated poses is that your body is relaxed, when in fact your muscles need to be engaged! You want to reach through your heels, flex your feet, spin your inner thighs to the floor and lift up through your shins and quads. Think strong engaged legs as if you were standing (only sitting!) ππΌπ
3οΈβ£ My arms in the before photo are basically limp noodles π π!! Your arms are there for support and strength. Spread your palms and press down into the ground and engage your triceps! Also make sure your shoulders are drawn back and your shoulder blades are in towards your chest. Remember all of your body needs to work together to achieve your most effective form!! π
ππΌ Want some modifications to work your way to the "After" photo? If you have tight hamstrings it is always ok to bend your knees or take your feet hip distance apart. You can also practice engaging your legs by pressing your feet into the wall! ππΌ
