#heytrythis #tricepsworkout #dumbbells #triceps "The beliefs you hold to be true make up the fabric of your experience. The stronger those beliefs, the more they seem unshakeable, and the more you will find evidence to support." Often we are identifying with limiting beliefs which keep us in a box and keep us from reaching our potential. Have you ever stopped yourself from doing something by buying into one the beliefs listed below? -I am not enough.
-I don't deserve success.
-Other people can do it better than me.
-I don't know enough.
-I'm too old/young.
-People like me don't ______.
-I've tried before and failed so if i try again, I'll fail again.
-I dont have the willpower/discipline/motivation.
-I'm not tech savvy.
-I'm not creative.
-I dont have enough money.
-I dont know where to start.

Knock it off.
Stop identifying with the limiting belief. 
Kill your conclusions. Whatever you think you know to be certain is probably a lot more flexible than you think. 
Test your assumptions. You need to do something to break the pattern of your limiting belief. Prove yourself wrong. 😘.

Hey Goal Diggers!

Thought I’d share one of my favorite glute exercises in honor of hump day!! Lol

Introducing… The hovering hip abduction!!
Most gyms have this machine and if you’re lucky it faces a wall lol here we go…

Step 1 Get in there!
Step 2 Choose a heavy weight! I find you can go much heavier than you would in the traditional seated method. Start out light and work your way up if you aren’t sure where to start.
Step 3 Stand up, drop it low and get to work!! Keep your back straight (not hunched), core tight and focus on using only your glutes and legs to move the weight. I typically do 3 sets of 12 or more using the whole stack, but start off light and work your way up. I brace myself by holding onto the sides of the machine.
Step 4 Feel the burn!! (_|_) lolol

For more glute/leg videos, visit my exercise library!

The hip abduction focuses on the muscles of the outer thigh and standing in a squatting position engages more of the gluteus medius and hip abductors (muscles on the side of your booty that move your legs outward) 🙂 Enjoy!!
