DEADLIFT:
The deadlift happens to be my favorite exercise. It is an amazing Mass Builder and great for conditioning as well. Here are some key points to remember when performing this lift.
1. Head up back straight
2. Butt low and tight
3. Drive through the legs
4. The beginning of the movement should be all legs
5. The back muscles shouldn't really kick in, other than a static contraction throughout the whole movement, until the bar is at knee height
6. Stand straight up and squeeze the traps at the end of the movement
7. Drag the bar along your shins, keeping it as close to the body as possible throughout the entire movement. If your shins arm bloody at the end of deadlifting you haven't done them correctly
8. I prefer an over under grip but that is your choice
9. Use chalk

From the @american_heart focused update to the 2013 ACC/AHA guidelines on #HeartFailure #CHF. I find this chart very useful and telling on how to manage patients with #systolicheartfailure #HFrEF. What is really telling are the two new groups of medications and their strength of evidence in the new guidelines. For heart failure we always assess the etiology and the patients #EjectionFraction first. If they fall into the category of reduced EF (LVEF<40%) we have tremendous evidence on the use of #BetaBlockers and #ACEinhibitors #AngiotensionReceptoeBlockers in reducing #Mortality. These medications work by preventing negative myocardial remodeling and help the heart unload physiologically. However new trials like #Shift and #ParadigmHF have shown that #Entresto and #Corlanor can help people live longer with better quality of life. Entresto, in particular, has been given a #Class 1A recommendation for systolic CHF. This is the first time in a long time that the guidelines for CHF include a new medication. Two questions however remain: 1) Will clinicians continue to be slow to adapt to this new game-changing medication and 2) Can patient afford it? @novartis #cardiology #cardiovascularhealth #medicine #medschool #heart #prescription #guidelines #instadoctor #instadoc #diuretic #america

❤️❤️❤️This week is National Heart Failure Awareness Week! For all of those who know me, and for those who don’t, I’ve been a nurse for the past 10 years and my passion is Heart Failure. I’ve been an educator on a cardiac telemetry unit for several years, and have been striving to educate patients, families and nursing staff to help reduce and prevent heart failure admissions to the hospital. I must say, heart failure is a devastating condition and is 💔 to patients and their families. It takes work on both parts to manage the symptoms at home, and often, hospitalization is inevitable. But, because I’m a strong believer in what nurses can achieve at the bedside, I am challenging everyone to spread awareness and help educate our patients and their families. .

Please follow @american_heart and tag a nurse friend today!!! Together, we can help save some lives!! .

While cardiovascular biomarkers may point to a higher risk of developing heart failure, predicting whether ejection fraction will be preserved is a tougher challenge, a study suggested.

INCLINE DUMBBELL CURL:
According to Arnold Schwarzenegger this is how he built his seven-time mr. Olympia biceps. He gives much of a credit to these incline dumbbell curls. I myself never had excellent biceps but they have become much much better through this the use of this exercise. Set the incline to approximately 75 to 80 degrees and make sure to keep the elbows in an arm close and tight to the body. I am currently doing three to four sets of 20 to 12 reps. Again according to Arnold this will help you achieve that egg-shaped bicep we are all looking for. Have fun!

Thighs, glutes, hams, hips, cardio
WALKING LUNGES!
This is an amazing exercise for all of those areas plus you will be breathing very very heavily by the end.
I am presently doing four sets of 12 reps on a separate day from my regular leg workout.
Give it a shot. Have fun!

I'm happy and thankful to be out of the house a bit today! 👐 The flu seems to have run it's course and tomorrow we're expecting a ton of snow so today's a good time to wander. ❄️❄️❄️
My cardiology team is making more adjustments to my heart meds. That means my little machine comes along for the ride. I have to watch that my blood pressure doesn't drop too low - but so far so good today!!

LYING TRICEP EXTENSION:
This is an amazing if not essential exercise for the back of the arm.
I like to do my sets on a slight decline bench.
I find it easier on my shoulders and I get that much more of a stretch of the bottom of the movement. I am currently doing 4-5 sets of 20 to 12 reps last in my tricep routine.

CABLE PULLDOWN:
This is a great finishing movement, especially if you can't do an actual dumbbell pullover. My shoulders are pretty bad so I am unable to do the pull over. I like to really flare the lats at the top of the moving and squeeze at the bottom. I currently do this last in my back workout to really drive home that pump. At the moment I am doing
6 sets of 20 to 25 reps
give it a shot!

I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy, along with heart failure. Another reason why I #goredwearred on Feb. 2nd.❤️ Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, usually starting in your heart's main pumping chamber (left ventricle). The ventricle stretches and thins (dilates) and can't pump blood as well as a healthy heart can. The term "cardiomyopathy" is a general term that refers to the abnormality of the heart muscle itself.

SUPERSET:
Try this in your workout.
Back-to-back Super sets of lo incline dbell press with pull-downs.
I do 8 sets of each back to back with as little rest time in between as possible. I try to go with no rest between the two exercises and rest for about 90 seconds between supersets. The pump can be insane. Give it a shot next time you want to try something different. Have fun!

#goredwearred day is Feb. 2nd! Wear red to support yourself or someone with heart disease. ❤️💋💄👠💃🏻 I’m in heart failure ❤️
My heart is enlarged- like the photo. But don’t let the picture fool you - doesn’t mean I have a “big heart” and I’m nice 😂😂😂
*Heart failure is a chronic, progressive condition in which the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood through to meet the body's needs for blood and oxygen. - AHA *Heart failure signs and symptoms may include: Shortness of breath (dyspnea) when you exert yourself or when you lie down. Fatigue and weakness. Swelling (edema) in your legs, ankles and feet. - Mayo Clinic

For some of us, the New Year seems more weighed down by scary unknowns than ripe with new possibilities.

Will our health stay the same or will it decline? Will our medical bills place a burden on our family? Etc... We can't possibly know what's going to happen and the fear of things getting worse can be debilitating.

Moving forward I'd like to suggest a few things we can do to ensure a better year ahead! Hop over to my recent blog post to learn the six changes I think we can make that will lead us into a happy 2018!

Don't let anything stand in your way:
In 2016 I had a shoulder replacement and 3 discs repaired in my back.
I have a pacemaker and my heart currently works at 18 to 20% of a normal heart
At 51 years old I am finally fairly comfortable with the way my physique looks.
Always room for improvement.
Having said that,
I am very comfortable with the workload my condition allows me, with both the weights and Cardio.
People say I'm amazing, they say I'm very strong, and they say I'm inspirational.
I just think I'm determined and a little bit crazy... like all of us.
But if my story and situation can Inspire someone out there to get up off the couch and try to better themselves through exercise, or for YOU to NOT skip that workout and DO that extra rep, then all of these posts are well worth it.
Always keep asking yourself
" how bad do you want it"

Have you ever watched your own heartbeat? This is literally my heart. Even as a doctor, I’m always in awe of how this muscle is constantly in motion. I’m completely and 100% fine (#itstheyoga). I, no joke, I did this mri to help a friend. #cardiacmri #ejectionfraction @cpray84

Do you ever hesitate making a doctor's appointment? It's easy to do when you're already up to your eyeballs in appointments and meds. .

Hack squats at Bev's gym. Due to my heart condition I limit the amount of weight and Reps I do. I do 5 sets of 15 to 20 reps after five sets of squats with the same rep range. Most importantly, because of my heart condition again, and my pacemaker I don't do the valsalva maneuver on the positive portion of the rep. Instead, I try to take breaths that are a little more shallow and keep the tension on my legs at all times. Notice how I don't lockout on any reps. This works very well for me. Give it a try but start slowly. Have fun!
