Must buy: It’s a Tie Tank (Lululemon)

I love this tank because you can wear it two different ways. I love the look of tying in the front, but you could also make a loose bow in the back too. Whatever your preference, it’s one of the cutest tanks I own. I stayed TTS in a 2.

Buy it here.

 

 

Must do: Floor Press Set Up

So I saw Layne Norton set up his heavy dumbbell floor presses like this the other day, and I will be forever grateful.  Working out alone, it can be challenging without a spot. So this little hack was a lifesaver for me.

See me set it up here:

 

 

 

 

Must try: Killer Hogs BBQ Rub

Lately I’ve been (OK my husband has) been using with this BBQ rub on our smoked meats, and I’m loving it. It’s a delicious blend of sugar, salt and spices – perfect for pork, beef and poultry. It’s not super salty or overpowering, but still full of flavor. I highly recommend. Plus, you can conveniently buy on Amazon.

Try it here.

Must Live By: “We Repeat What We Don’t Repair”

This quote has been on my mind A LOT lately. Not just for blatantly obvious reasons (like my injury) either; I think it’s applicable to all aspects of life. It’s basically a good reminder that if you don’t fix something, history will keep repeating itself. This could be anything from old habits, repeating negative cycles or harmful behaviors. Instead, we should accept our history, learn from our mistakes and make changes for a better future. You want things to change? Then start changing things. Go figure, right?

Must Read: How to correctly treat piriformis syndrome

I recently came across this article from Squat University regarding piriformis syndrome, and I feel it is very detailed and well written. If you think you have pain coming from your piriformis (vs low back) then I highly recommend reading it. It covers piriformis basics, tests, treatment, rehab and pain management techniques.

Read it here.

 

 


As always, I’m not paid to review or recommend any of the products listed (just things I like).

That’s it for this week’s musts. Have a great week friends!
