Creating Your Mindset

In today’s vlog, I don’t talk about swimming, cycling, running or lifting. I chat with you all about learning how to “Creating YOUR Mindset.” I had a dear entrepreneur/friend talk about “Mindset” and I wanted to share it with you! Thanks Rick Martinez for always providing knowledge!

You need to really listen to this one. Trust me on this. Learn to get in touch with YOUR MIND before each and every workout, it will make your race, so much easier! (more…)

“Rulon Rules” to a Deadlift

Today, let me give you my “Rulon Rules” to a Deadlift. Deadlifts are a fantastic overall workout, IF done correctly. I am a big fan of Romanian Deadlifts (RDL), but some athletes have a hard time doing the RDL’s due to tight hamstrings.

What muscles do deadlifts work? Boy, what muscles do they NOT work? Here you go:

  • Trapezius Muscle
  • Latissimus Dorsi
  • Gluteus Maximus
  • Hamstrings
  • Quadriceps (All 4 muscles)
  • Erector spinae – Stabilizers of the lower back
  • Rectus Abdominis
  • Obliques

“Rulon Rules” to Push-Ups

A few weeks ago, we chatted about the squat, and I gave you my 5 key tips on doing the back squat. If you didn’t get the information, click HERE for the tips!

Today, let me give you my “Rulon Rules” to a Push-Up. I have to admit, push-ups are my nemesis but I know the importance of a push-up.

Rulon Rules to Rest & Recovery

As triathletes, we know the importance of rest and recovery. You have all heard the numerous discussions about sleep and what we are learning about LACK of sleep. Heck, I wrote a blog about “Why It is Time to Prioritize Your Sleep, Triathletes.” As triathletes, we also tend to be VERY hard on ourselves. For example, maybe you feel like a nap, but in your mind you feel LAZY. Or you see ALL your friends riding 5 hours, when you are ONLY supposed to be riding 2 hours. Unfortunately, the big thing that gets in the way of ourselves is OUR EGO! (Yes, I said it!) As a triathlon coach, I have seen this happen with athletes constantly. Not so much for the people that I coach, but the people that I see on social media!

If you have been following me on my daily Instagram Stories, you may recall that I have been sick for the last 2 weeks. I am FINALLY getting better. While my head tells me one thing, my body is truly telling me another thing. It is time to rest for you to be prepared for the 2017 Triathlon Season. (more…)
