    How to access Thrive?

    I purchased all access content option a while ago and I have recently discovered the Thrive course thorugh forum, but I cannot find the way to access to its content. It does not appear by using class finder or courses library. Is it not available anymore or am I missing something? Thanks!

    How do I add courses to the schedule?

    I originally had the default schedule and it had one day designated for handstand training. When I changed to the Level 2 schedule, it removed the handstand course from the schedule and I can’t figure out how to add it back in a way that logs and updates my progress. Is it possible to edit the level 2 schedules?

    Quick Question about Thrive

    Roasting carrots or almost any vegetable in the oven with olive oil (can be flavored) and salt and pepper is a pretty tasty way to cook them. Easy and not mushy

    Inflammation

    Update on this: at this point I've progressed into a mild ketogenic diet and lost 20+ lbs. My back pain has improved to the tune of 90%--I've even been able to totally stop taking the medicine I've been on for over 5 years (1200mg/day Gabapentin) and the pain has not come back. In the last few months, diet (especially removing processed foods and limiting carb intake) has moved the needle more on body composition and pain than anything else I've tried.

    Inflammation

    I try the same elimination. I can eliminate gluten fine on my own, but the minute I get around other humans I fail. But I do think I feel some difference when I eat more of it. I have long noticed a positive difference when I quit sugar (and alcohol too, but I find other sugar easier :-). I notice a substantial difference in sleep, temperature regulation, dry skin and itching, and moods without sugar). I will start paying attention to whether it affects my fitness progress and joints when doing that and working out consistently.

    Jefferson curl

    Tucked means PPT.

    Jefferson curl

    In the description of doing the Jefferson curl it says keep the hips tucked under for as long as possible. Is this meaning apt or ppt? I assume it means maintain a ppt.

    New flexibility exercises?

    Well Ji, we can discuss solutions on the private forum of the front split course.

    New flexibility exercises?

    While I have full range for some exercises, I definitely don't have full range for all exercises. My hamstrings are tougher. My palms can be way passed my feet in a pike, but my forehead can't touch my toes in any way (is that the full range?), and I'm not feeling I can achieve that by repeating the same strethes over and over. My hips are another tougher area. I'm pretty flat in a frog, but my hip is not open 180 degrees. Again, I'm not feeling I can achieve that by just holding a frog. I'm not complaining, sorry if it sounded like that. When I started exercising at all, my finger tips couldn't reach the ground in a pike. From there to here today, I'm immensely grateful. My current range is more than enough for whatever sports I'd like to do. I'm also not trying to be a contortionist. But when I stretch with a coach at a gym, or a friend, there is always some new stretches working some muscles I never felt before. But the people I stretch with are usually not more flexible than me, and their stretching is not nearly as structured as Gymnasticbodies. So I'm wondering if there will be some new stretching exercises from GB, and maybe varieties will help my problem areas progress a bit more

    New flexibility exercises?

    Hey Jin it depends on what are you are particularly locked and also if you can show the full range of motion in the current flexibility exercises of the stretch series.

    HI Jesse, you should do one exercise at a time, so begin from the core part...the hollow body variations...complete the mastery..then move on.

Ive have been doing such exercises and some middle split stretches for a few months now and haven’t got a lot of relief when preforming the breztel exercise. Any tips to get some relief? thank you

    Hip flexor strain

    Thanks. I just wanted to know how to approach it.

    Hip flexor strain

    Hi Ricky, Stop and leave it alone while it heals. If it is minor, you should be good to go in a week or two. Under no circumstances should you attempt to work through it. Yours in Fitness, Coach Sommer

    Family membership

    Hi Ricky, Yes, a separate membership will be required to avoid resetting all the settings each time. Over the years we have discussed creating a family membership, but there was never enough interest from the community to justify the development cost. Yours in Fitness, Coach Sommer

    Family membership

    My wife wants to do this program with me but she is at a different pace. Does she need to do a separate membership or is there a way to do the program without losing my workouts each time?

    Hip flexor strain

    While performing the vertical shin stretch in the front split series I felt a slight pop in my left front hip. Not painful but surprised me. I stopped immediately. I wasn’t really pushing the stretch hard. This happened 2 days ago. It can tell it’s aggravated. Should I stop doing the front split series or just specific exercises within the series? Also should I do some of the hip and quad rehab while it heals?

    New flexibility exercises?

    New flexibility exercises?

    Hi, I purchased the flexibility courses a couple (?) years back, and have been doing them almost every week. I can feel significant improvement in some areas, while other areas are a bit more stubborn. Either way, I'm very happy with my progress. I recently tap into weightlifting (been training on and off), I can say mobility isn't an issue for me at all from the start! Because of this, I was able to learn proper technique fairly quickly. That said, since I've been doing the same stretching courses for a long time now (I remember all of the exercises by heart now, and usually do all of three series back to back), and I'm wondering if there might be some new and also challenging flexibility exercises in the future? Maybe doing something different might help my "stubborn" areas that are not improving as well as the other areas? Just to brag a little , below is one of my weightlifting videos. I'm no pro athlete at all, never played a sport growing up, and currently have a desk job. But I can hit all the proper positions in that lift with no constraint in any joints: elbows, shoulders, wrists, hips, knees, or ankles. That was my max clean weight, and it felt easy in the first rep. The second rep was a bit struggle, but that's more related to strength. I can't be more grateful to the benefits healthy joints can provide.
