DEUTSCHER GRAND SLAM SIEG 🏆🎊🎾💪😍🇩🇪
Bei den diesjährigen french open setzte sich sehr überraschend und mit phänomenaler Leistung das Deutsche Doppel #krawietzmies durch und krallte sich die Grand slam Krone 👑😍
In Deutschland hat Doppel leider einen sehr geringen Stellenwert und wird oft als "langweilig" oder "Rentnersport" abgestempelt 😴👴
Der Grund dafür ist wohl das deutsche Punktspiel System! ☝️In den unteren Ligen werden erst vier Einzel gespielt und erst danach die beiden Doppel. Häufig steht die Siegermannschaft dadurch leider schon nach den Einzeln fest und die Doppel werden abgeschenkt oder aufgeteilt: also gar nicht erst gespielt. 🙅🏼♂️
Ich bin klarer Befürworter einer Punktspielreform, in der die Reihenfolge der Begegnungen geändert wird - also erst die Doppel zu spielen. 🔃
Dadurch kann das beschriebene Szenario nicht eintreten. 🚫
So wird es beispielsweise auch bei college tennis Duellen in den USA gemacht!! 🇺🇲
Ein Doppel mit vier motivierten Spielern kann nämlich so richtig abgehen und mega Bock machen!! 🔥🔥😎🤙
Was haltet ihr von der Idee? Spielt ihr gerne Doppel❓ 🤔
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” - Aristotle
One of the most challenging things we can do, is to reflect. To reflect, with brutal honesty.
This quote can be applied in many ways, but it’s most commonly applied to the physical acts of our days. Whether we show up to the gym at 5:00am to train. Whether we eat the proper food we brought to work with us, or order out for lunch.
What’s more challenging, is to look further inward. And reflect, with brutal honesty, on our thoughts. The way we think.
When we missed the lift, what were our immediate thoughts?
When we were cut off on the road by another car, what did we say to ourselves?
When the gossip arrived in the at training, what did we first think?
If our thoughts become actions, this must be where we start.
Core work! So I posted about this in my story but thought I would share here as well.
Working my core is something that I honestly often neglected. I think a majority could relate on that. I really wanted to have a stronger core because I’ve been seeing my friends do a lot of cool bar work that requires a core strength I lack. 6 packs are (partially) made in the kitchen. But you can’t healthily eat yourself into having core musculature. The kitchen is where the definition starts to come out, but there has to already be muscles there to show.
I always would tell myself “okay I’ll do core when I get off work” or my favorite lie - “I’ll do core when I get home!!” And yeah. Never happened. So I set a goal for myself to do core M-F until I left for Thailand. (It was roughly 4 weeks out from my trip at that point.) While having timeline goals is not something I would recommend when it comes to most health and fitness goals, it helped for me in this scenario. It wasn’t a goal to be at a certain point aesthetically or strength wise, just to simply accomplish a task.
Doing this helped me actually do my core work. Having the goal is one thing. For me having an end time was equally as helpful. I could tell myself “only 2 more weeks! This will take 10 minutes of my day!” And the work got done.
So I’m starting another core challenge for myself and started this past Monday. Core every M-F (or you can say 5x/wk) until July 31st. This time you guys should do it with me. This isn’t for quick aesthetic gainz, it’s not a last minute “summer body” gimmick. It’s just to help hold you accountable to getting a stronger core which benefits so many facets of life. Who’s gonna do this with me??
If you know me, you know I LOVE training shoulders! I train them twice a week and accessory bits where I feel I’m lacking on other days. It is an area that drops as quickly as my glutes so I like to make sure they look filled out rather than flat. Over the years I’ve gotten to know my body and know what works and the areas I need to focus on. If you want more shoulders keep watching and swipe left to watch the rest! 💗💪 🎥 @aray____________
Last 2 days of our itinerary were spent at this newly renovated #Unazukiyamanoha Onsen Hotel. This #hotel offers warm ambience & well equipped facilities (enclosed, open style and private #Onsen, onboard meals, a gift shop, plenty beverage machines for her guest). Having walked close to 90km on foot and commuted approximately 1500km on #train. We were extremely worn out and this was a #perfect and #splendid venue to recharge, rest our aching legs, hands and bodies! ✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻
