I never lift angry. This is my happy place. But tonight, I didn't want to pick up this bar. Because I knew it was going to feel impossible. Not heavy, impossible. Training has been frustrating since my ER visit, I feel weak, I get lightheaded when I lift heavy, and I'm tired. I'm tired of feeling broken again, and when I started working through my lighter sets and it felt like the bar, in my happy place, was fighting me too... I got angry. I've been going with the flow of my health issues because I'm getting help and seeing improvement, but I needed a moment to have some choice words and say I hate it, and I'm fighting back. So, I put 185# over my head. Not pretty, but it's the most I've done in months. Life is hard, and you need to take moments to grieve, and then keep going. I struggle constantly with loving my body even when I feel trapped in it, but it doesn't help either of us to pretend things are fine when they're not. So, to all you lovely people that keep asking me how I am, I am not ok. I'm doing better, and have hope again, but I want more than where I'm at, and will keep showing up for it. Today is day one. Only going up from here. #ehlersdanlos #connectivetissue #rhino #fortwayne #cutterfitness #survivortocompetitor #fragilebutunbreakable #crossfit #iamadaptive #chronicpain #liftheavy #functionalthickness #girlswholift
Are you looking for some great adaptive workouts? Give the TRX straps from @trxtraining a try. In this video @fitwithamyb and Tyler show us some awesome exercises
October is National Spina Bifida Awareness Month We want to introduce you to Tyler, a twelve-year-old who embodies the ethos. Tyler is a talented, adaptive athlete who plays wheelchair tennis, baseball and mono-skis. His mom, Amy, loves TRX and recently they’ve started training with the straps to help Tyler gain strength and shoulder ROM. Right now, their focus is on getting used to holding the straps and understanding the basis of the movements. They’re heading to a weekend trip for teens with Spina Bifida in a few weeks, and they’ll be bringing their TRX straps along!
