I have so much to share with you this week and lot’s more to come. Before I forget, stay tuned for next weeks blog post; I will have a special guest on JustmeJennb.com. She will be writing a blog post about what it’s like to be a teen in today’s culture and dealing with body image. It’s going to be a good one for sure.
Speaking of body image. It’s hard to believe that a year ago today, I launched the Love Your Body Campaign on JustmeJennb.com. For those of you who may be new to this site, last year around this time a group of ladies came together to share their struggles about body image and learning to love the skin they’re in. I will be resharing random stories this month on the blog for anyone who may have missed the Love Your Body Campaign series last year or for anyone who may just be looking for a little inspiration about loving the body you live in. Here are a few stories you can checkout today.
In other news, as most of you know, I am a personal trainer (among many other things) so I thought I might try out something new and a little out of my comfort zone on justmejennb. I will randomly be posting a video of different exercises or fitness tips for the readers of this blog and for my clients to check out as well. You can find the first video at the end of this post. For your entertainment I have included some bloopers that happened during the filming. Courtesy of my son Alex.
Podcast news: The Perfectly Imperfect Podcast is going through a transition. Today’s podcast found here will be Abby’s last podcast on the show. She has a lot going on in her life and she is on a trek to become a professional athlete, so she needs to be wise with her time. However, she will stop by from time to time as a guest on the show. The podcast will return in the fall as the Perfectly Imperfect Life with Just Me Jenn B. I will be taking time during the summer to learn all the IT stuff, (because that was Abby’s gift) lining up interviews and figuring out how to post it to iTunes. (if anyone has advice on how to do this, I am all ears) Yesterday we recorded a whole hour of fabulous podcasting about rejection. Trust me when I say, it was golden. After the show, Abby was showing me how to record and just like that we deleted the entire episode! UGHHHH…So, I will rerecord the podcast about rejection when I return in the fall.
Ok, now go try this squat variation. It’s a fun one for sure!!!
Lumberjack squats. This is a squat variation that loads the anterior core and helps to assist people to keep their chest up and sit up tall in a squat. You can add this into a warm up if you keep the weight light (empty bar is fine) or add weight to the top of the bar and include it into you training program. Enjoy!
