in february of 2020, i was *peaking*, mentally, physically, and emotionally.

@lizplosser Mentally: working on the outline for my first-ever book. Physically: training toward 10 pullups. Emotionally: a therapy practice. Then life literally knocked me off that proverbial summit in the form of a skiing accident. Rocketing at 40 mph on my last run of the day in Durango, Colorado, I hit a bump that sent me soaring through the air and crashing onto my back. When I regained consciousness, my first thought was: Will I be able to walk? Terrifying. Adrenaline helped me ski safely down the rest of the slope. Then the reality came into focus: Fitness is my power, but sweating was out of the question because it hurt to cough, laugh, even swallow. I have three young kiddos who need me operating at 110 percent, and I couldn’t put on…

coaches change everything

My comeback journey was possible because I surrounded myself with support and positivity. Bonus: The squad I created (and yes, it runs deep!) was mostly virtual. TWO MONTHS AFTER INJURY I began training with Dan Giordano, a physical therapist and CMO of Bespoke Treatments. He taught me how to connect with my core again—the strength and powerhouse of my body. THREE MONTHS Recovery tools—tennis balls, hot showers, Hyperice’s Hypervolt percussion massage gun, Normatec compression boots—became my best friends. The last two were admittedly an investment, but now I use them proactively, to great effect. FOUR MONTHS I added virtual training with Angela Gargano, a WH Next Fitness Star contestant, who has her own comeback story: from an ACL tear to an awesome run on American Ninja Warrior. FIVE MONTHS Back in Colorado with my family, I conquered my…

super sipper

Make-It Magic 1. Puree 1 lb fresh fruit (like strawberries, mango, watermelon, cantaloupe, or honeydew) + 1 cup water + 2 Tbsp each sugar and lime juice. 2. Strain into a pitcher and stir in 2 cups water (more if it’s too thick). 3. Serve over ice—ahhh, hello, hydration. 1 in 5 That’s how many people have ~ stretched the truth~ to their partners about $$$ habits, according to one survey. But keeping the lines of communication open is good for your relationship and your health, so schedule annual or biannual check-ins to discuss which spending practices worked and which didn’t. Might not sound like the most scintillating convo, but the point is: You can change course to figure out what works for you to avoid getting into a fibbing cycle. (Oh, that package? No…

more core, please

WATCH FOR A. An Arched Lower Back This means your spine—not your abs—is bearing the full brunt of the move. WATCH FOR B. A Lifted Head To avoid any strain, keep your neck long and your head resting on floor. THE STEPS 1. Lie faceup with legs lifted and bent so hips and knees form 90-degree angles and arms are extended straight up over shoulders. 2. Keeping lower back pressed into floor, engage core and simultaneously extend right leg and left arm away from each other until right foot hovers close to floor and left arm extends along left ear. 3. Return to start and repeat on opposite side.

1 Get All the *Inspiration* You Want From Videos Then it’s best to consult a trainer (ideally one with a CPT or CSCS certification) in-person or virtually before trying anything new, says WH advisor Sohee Lee, CSCS. 2 Keep It Simple If You Don’t Have Access to an Expert Stick to clips that focus on basic movements like squats, deadlifts, pullups, rows, and presses (avoid complicated ones), as they’re less likely to be ouch-inducing. 3 Watch for Peeps Using Black-and-White Terms No one has the authority to declare certain movements “bad” or “good,” says Lee. Be wary of that type of language as you scroll. You got this!…
