15 Oct Bouncing back
“Mom your butt looks flat”
Hey atleast she was honest. That’s what 13 year olds do. They speak their truth. Granted I was never nor do I want to be a kardashian, my butt was looking “flat…”
Aside from aesthetics, functionally that’s not good. Weak glutes put more pressure on your lower back and with my injuries that’s not a good thing.
For 12 years I barely touched weight. I was ALL about body weight, oh I worked hard and you can with body weight!
- Pull ups
All my jam.
- Until my disc ruptured
- Then I tore my bicep at the distal
- Then I broke my foot
NONE of the injuries happened because of a workout by the way … lol but that’s another story (but foot broke walking and bicep tore swimming)
But they all humbled me.
After a year of rest and recovery and very light movement I’m a student again
This time with weights
- My strength is returning
- My glutes are showing up
- My pain is going away
And Penelope, moms getting a BOOTIE!
