Girls Gone Strong
by Molly Galbraith
1y ago
Extreme. Insanity. Obsession Sound familiar? Like words associated with fitness programs that constantly pop up on TV and on your social media feeds, perhaps? Listen, it’s no wonder that many of us believe that working harder and eating less — or in other words, doing more — is the only way to get amazing results. For a really long time, I took that message to heart. I wore it like a badge of honor. I exercised for several hours a day, sometimes even doing two workouts in the same day. I also followed a very strict diet that didn’t even come close to fueling the amount of work I was asking m ..read more

Do any of these sound familiar? It feels like you're always setting a new goal, going all-in for a few weeks, burning out, falling back into old habits, feeling defeated... then starting the process over again, telling yourself you’ll be "stricter" or "better" this time. You really want to get a certain result, but you can’t seem to make the changes you need to get them to stick. You know the things you’re supposed to do, but you struggle to show up and do them.

Maybe you have new stretch marks or lax skin, or perhaps people are still asking when your baby is due.

While it’s not painful, it can be disconcerting. Rest assured: This is all pretty common. Remember, you just grew and birthed a baby, and your body went through huge changes to accommodate the develop ..read more

Have you ever walked into a group fitness class or personal training session and thought, “Please please please don’t let there be push-ups today”? If the idea of a set of push-ups fills you with dread, you’re not alone. Push-ups are tough!

Just being strong or fit isn’t enough — it takes time and practice to master the technique. As such, many women avoid push-ups. Maybe they’ve always struggled to do them, or they just don’t think they’re strong enough (or the ..read more

6 Ways to Progress Your Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift
Girls Gone Strong
by Jen Comas
3y ago
Few exercises simultaneously challenge your mobility, balance, strength, and coordination quite like the single-leg Romanian deadlift. But if this move doesn’t challenge you the way it used to, it’s time to mix things up with progressions! Getting out of your comfort zone and improving your skills have a ton of benefits, particularly when it comes to your fitness. When you perform the same exercise the same way over and over again, your body adapts and no longer needs to grow to meet the challenge.
