It isn't until you're at a good place when you begin to unpack everything. My mind is always racing, thinking about the next challenge to chase or wallowing on my setbacks. I always forget to reflect. ⁣ ⁣ A reminder for myself and for some: remember to breathe before embarking.

Still slowly recovering from my foot injury. Good news! It's not fractured, but my Achilles tendon is still swollen and in pain. It's been 2.5 weeks and I'm learning how to be patient with myself.

Today my mental health took a downward trajectory. I spent a little over 2 hours training and I was barely making progress. This was practically the only move I can pull off. Who knew the mind can really affect many other aspects of our body.

New pole, please clean. The first 5 seconds is dedicated in me cleaning our brand new child. Then we continue our normal viewing with an aerial spin. 😬

So, I did this post because I was complaining at work how tired I was and a friend said I was overtraining. I laughed and said I wasn’t as I was only training 10 hours a week! 🤷🏽‍♀️ With some puzzled looks I took to Instagram this week to find out who else trained this much and found out that yes, most of us do indeed train over 8-10 hours per week whilst ALSO having full time jobs or go to school (scroll right to see poll results). This got me thinking though and I realised that not only am I overtraining, but, as a community we accept this to be a normal amount of training , when actually, it’s exceptionally high! And we do this because 💛WE 💛LOVE 💛WHAT 💛WE 💛DO 💛 and are constantly trying to put ourselves to the limits. However, sometimes we do need to say stop and have a proper rest (I took 3 whole days off training in a row which is unheard of and my goodness don’t I feel better!!). Here are some common signs of overtraining that you should be aware of: 💛frequent injuries 🍋always tired 💛inability to complete skills you usually find easy 🍋difficulty concentrating 💛always sore 🍋mood swings .

fizzylemonphysiotherapy. Improve your muscle memory with these simple steps:
1) You learn a ski

Improve your muscle memory with these simple steps: 1) You learn a skill more thoroughly by coming back to it many times rather than overtraining a skill in a short period of time 2) Repetition is key - muscle memory resides in the brain. Muscle memory is memory FOR your muscles. Repetition creates new neural pathways in the brain each time you repeat a skill causing those connections to become stronger each time. 3) Muscles remember mistakes in the same way they remember correct technique so break complex skills up into bite size portions so you aren’t repeating mistakes again and again and building incorrect technique into your muscle memory 4) Be patient - building muscle memory is a process that demands patience and persistence . . . . #circus #circusphysio #circuscircus #aerial #aerialsilks #aerialtissue #aerialist #aerialnation #aerialhoop #aerialtrapeze #aerialflow #pole #poledance #poledancer #poledancersofig #polenation #stretching #flexibility #flexible #notyoga #contortion #contortionist #contortionistofinsta #contortionistofig #handbalancer #handbalancing #acro #acrobalance #juggler #juggling

Following some confusion following my last post I wrote a blog for you guys to help explain it further. Having tone and being toned are not the same thing.

Couldn't get up this morning because I technically slept 7am-1pm from a work party last night. So I went to the 3pm class and struggled my way through a combo. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Gotta hash out the last part.

No throw back this week, just a little pre class stretch. It's weird how I look a picture like this but still hear that inner saboteur saying "you're not flexible! You're not a dancer! You're nothing!". Well in the words of @katya_zamo I'm gonna tell that little voice to shut the fuck up. Nobody can stop me, but me. And this is the year of getting out of my own way. Growth happens through pain, change happens if you want it.

Tone is, put simply, the right amount of tension inside the muscle at rest so that it is inherently able to contract on command. When we stretch, if we lengthened our muscles then contortionists would be a wobbly pile of goo every time they tried to stand. So what happens when we do stretch? When we stretch we are reducing our muscle tone by telling our nervous system to reduce its excitability. . . . . . . #circus #circusphysio #circuscircus #stretching #flexibility #flexible #notyoga #contortion #contortionist #contortionistofinsta #contortionistofig #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogadaily
