Fem Wrestlers, Pistol Squats Are Number One With A Bullet

Boxes are something that you need to pack things into and think outside of.

The latter, creatively and often.

Building strong legs and thighs ultimately will be wonderful for your body since so many activities are propelled from there. The additional benefits are the more attractive shape and eye candy look.

There is a strong thigh kid on the block who is not new but very unique.

Creatively unique.

Her first name is Pistol. Her last name is Squat and yes she does know squat.

Very well but she has placed a different and slightly more difficult spin on it.

Have you tried her?

The benefits of performing and mastering the pistol squat are tremendous.

First off the pistol squat requires great balance, leg strength, flexibility and coordination. Chances are you will never see anyone get this movement on their first attempt due to the difficulty of the exercise.

In addition those that are able to perform a one legged squat have the leg strength to perform a barbell back squat with the equivalent of their body weight.

The informative fitness and muscle industry site breakingmuscle.com adds, “The pistol, or single-leg squat, is a unique exercise that combines strength, flexibility, and grace in a manner unlike many other movements. There are several pieces to the pistol puzzle, and proper execution requires mastery of each element.”

Exceptional advice. This muscles in from Chris Garay.

Mr. Garay is a trainer, educator, athlete, and musician based out of Annandale, Virginia. He grew up playing sports (soccer, basketball, and wrestling) in grade school, and then he shifted focus to music in high school and college. Chris became a world-class snare drummer, toured the country playing drum set, and currently teaches one of the best marching percussion ensembles in the world. Along the way, he earned a degree in philosophy and religious studies and pursued graduate studies in social psychology and well-being.

Now that was from someone with great expertise.

Now we need some inspiration.

The beautiful and fit site greatestphysiques.com introduces, “Juliana Mota a.k.a ‘jujubafit_’ is a Brazilian fitness model, who’s known for her muscular glutes, quads, and lean physique. She’s become increasingly popular online as a motivational fitness model, and a Bikini Wellness Competitor.

Shortly after Juliana Mota moved to Paris, she began posting pictures and videos of her fitness journey online in 2015. Soon after, she gained a reputation as a strong and powerful woman with an incredible physique – her followers soon began to multiply.”

Ever since she started her fitness journey at the age of 15, and throughout her years of hard work in the gym, Juliana has gone from strength to strength.”

“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.”… John F. Kennedy

To start a brilliant career at 15, you absolutely have to think outside of the box.

Just look at those gorgeous thighs.

Juliana has thighs to live for and salivate over.

Hard work certainly pays off.

Then in our competitive female submission wrestling industry there is a fine example of a gorgeous girl with strong thighs in Jennifer Thomas.

Be careful in battle with her. She can crush you like a grape.

In terms of building some strong legs and gorgeous thighs, are you ready to think outside of the box?

Let’s go to the playbook and bring out the pistol.

Please enjoy.


 

No Other Exercise Will Work Your Legs As Hard As the Pistol Squat.

fciwomenswrestling.com, grapplingstars.com femcompertitor.com, photo via Zuzka-Light

By Matt Goss

Pistol Squats focusing primarily on your quads however its one of the best leg exercises around and no other exercise will work your legs as hard as they do.

So picture a one-legged squat to the floor in which your other leg held straight out in front of you. You lower all the way down to the ground and power back up all on one leg and if you’re doing it for the first time it can brutal!

This is why you should start implementing them into your workouts because this simple movement takes an enormous amount of strength, flexibility, and balance. Master these and you will be highly rewarded.

Technique Breakdown – Pistol Squat – Quadriceps

Start/Finish Position

Stand holding your arms straight out in front of your body at shoulder level, parallel to the floor.
Raise your right leg off the floor and hold it there.
Flex your right ankle so that your toes are higher than your heel.
Your right leg should be straight.
Brace your core.

Movement Phase

Push your hips back and lower your body as far as you can.
As you lower your body, raise your right leg so that it doesn’t touch the floor keep your head and chest straight.

Pause, then push your body back to the starting position.
Keep your torso as upright as possible.
Hold for a moment and repeat for desired repetitions.

Breathing Directions
Breathe in during the downward motion.
Breathe out during the upward motion.

Tips

For best results lowering the weight should take twice as long as raising it.
Keep your core active throughout.
Aim to hold your arms out and steady without swinging.

So if you’re attempting these for the first time you should begin using one of the two different strategies recommended here.

Strategy 1

Perform the movement using a bench or similar behind you so that when you bum touches it you know to start raising yourself back up to the starting position. This will train you to learn the movement in a smaller range of motion and as you gain strength and stability you can you can use lower and lower bench heights until you need them no more.

Strategy 2

Use a vertical support and using your hands to walk down the support as you lower one leg and then walk your hands back up as you raise yourself back to the starting position. However don’t pull yourself up using the vertical support, it’s only for balance not for leverage.

Either Strategy is fine to get you started on this the king of bodyweight leg exercises.

Cabeau Evolution Memory Foam Travel Pillow, A Soothing Experience

Participating in a sport of engagement on a regular basis can take a lot out of you.

Just ask the beautiful girls of our competitive submission grappling world. They travel the world for engagements that will most likely not result in marriage.

fciwomenswrestling.com, grapplingstars.com femcompertitor.com, fciwomenswrestling.com photo credit

A great session or two will do.

More likely bumps and bruises in grappling matches are par for the course.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, femcompetitor, grapplingstars.com photo

Often a sore neck as well.

Since our fair maidens are constantly on a plane, often after battle, something to sooth the neck and make the travel experience so much better would be a plus.

It’s time to introduce the neck pillow into the picture.

We researched a number of manufacturers and one travel rest pillow that seems to comfort organically better than more is the Cabeau Evolution Memory Foam Travel Pillow.

fciwomenswrestling.com, grapplingstars.com femcompertitor.com, cabeau.com photo credit

Fasten your seat belts. The plane is in flight. We’ll peer at their brochure of features for inflight entertainment.

At amazon.com they are very convincing about what this exceptional travel pillow has to offer.

They share:

  • AWARD WINNING: The patented Evolution Pillow is the first travel pillow constructed with high quality memory foam that actually supports your neck without the awkward positioning and discomfort. Proven to be more comfortable than inflatable, microbead, & down neck pillows.

We must admit, that is extremely impressive. Wouldn’t you agree?

It’s time to meet the family that manufactures this vessel of comfort. At cabeau.com they would like to tell you a little about themselves. “During his career playing professional basketball for Maccabi Tel Aviv, David Sternlight was on the road a lot. While seeing the world was always an adventure, he found most methods of travel to be cramped and uncomfortable – especially at 6’8″ tall.

Determined to create a better travel experience for himself and others, David began to design the first travel pillow that actually works. In 2009, after months of development, the revolutionary Cabeau Evolution® Pillow was born.

Fast-forward to today, and Cabeau’s patented travel pillows comfort products and accessories can be found in over 50 countries around the globe. Our products have set new industry standards for superior craftsmanship, quality and comfort, and have won numerous awards.

Cabeau’s patented travel pillows, comfort products, and innovative accessories can be found in over 110 countries worldwide. Our products have set new industry standards for superior craftsmanship, quality, and comfort. We are honored to have received numerous travel industry awards that recognize our commitment to excellence in providing our customers with innovative travel accessories as well as our dedication to improving the world around us.

Our team is dedicated to ensuring that the same effort and energy goes into our new products that went into our original, groundbreaking Cabeau Evolution® Pillow.  Innovations in our extended product line are inspired by our customers, who have shared with us what they like, what works, and what would further enhance their travels. We provide a carefully curated range of products that are guaranteed to make your travel experience better.”

What a wonderful story. Is there more?

fciwomenswrestling.com, grapplingstars.com femcompertitor.com, cabeau.com photo credit

Of course.

They continue, “Cabeau creates expertly crafted travel accessories designed by travelers for travelers.  We are a young an innovative company committed to family values and philanthropy.  With a group of exceptional sales, marketing, design, operations, and legal specialists.  Cabeau’s success lies in its extraordinary team and collaborative approach.”

That’s fantastic. In our competitive female grappling world we love team work and dedication to cause.

We also love how they express themselves at Cabeau but we want to see what others have to say about their travel pillow.

At the global financial news and information source businessinsider.com they praise, “The pillow is designed to go around the back of your neck and rest on your shoulders. Like the Clöudz pillow, the Cabeau closes around front, but instead of snaps, it has a drawstring with a fastener that you can use to turn the U into an O.

Instead of a smooth tube-like shape bent into a U, the Cabeau pillow has an ergonomically designed hump running the length of the pillow to support your head more effectively. The cover is removable and machine washable. In reviews all around the web, buyers say the Cabeau is helpful and comfortable, even if they haven’t liked past travel pillows.”

Here is another.

At the fun travel and review site manonthelam.com they add, “It’s obvious a lot of thought went into the design of the Cabeau Evolution Travel Neck Pillow. Its raised section above the main U-shape offers added neck and head support to prevent the head from wobbling, and it even comes with ear plugs, a spot to put your iPod or smartphone, and a handy carry bag. Even though it’s a premium memory foam travel pillow, with a little bit of effort, and by following the instructions, the Cabeau Travel Pillow can be rolled down to about 1/4 of its size to fit inside the carry bag.”

Sounds soothing, comfortable and well thought out. Perfect.

In our competitive female grappling world our Fem Competitors can’t always avoid neck pain which may rear its ugly head while they are on a plane.

Fortunately with the Cabeau Evolution Travel Neck Pillow can bring great comfort to a sometimes temporarily uncomfortable travel situation.

Lessja Tough Euro Wrestler

James Douglas “Jim” Morrison was an American singer, songwriter and poet best remembered as the lead singer of The Doors.

Elektra Records signed the Doors in 1966, and in January 1967 the band released its self-titled debut album.

The Doors’ first single, “Break on Through (To the Other Side),” achieved only modest success and it was their second single, “Light My Fire,” which catapulted the band to the forefront of the rock and roll world, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart in June. The Doors, and Morrison especially, became infamous later that year when they performed the song live on The Ed Sullivan Show. Because of its obvious drug reference, Morrison had agreed not to sing the lyric “girl we couldn’t get much higher” on the air, but when the cameras rolled he went ahead and sang it anyway – cementing his status as rock and roll’s new rebel hero. “Light My Fire” remains The Doors’ most popular song, featuring prominently on virtually every major list of the greatest rock songs ever recorded.

The legendary star was quoted as stating, “Violence isn’t always evil. What’s evil is the infatuation with violence.

There is a line of thought the human condition impels many to be infatuated with violence.

When you slide a first glance at DWW’s gorgeous girl next door looking Black Sea Amazon fighter Lessja, you can’t help but wonder, what is a great looking fresh faced girl doing putting on boxing gloves and battering another woman into submission while trying not to get smashed herself?

fciwomenswrestling.com photo, DWW photo

What drives this?

Is she obsessed with violence and pain, both inflicting and receiving?

Can we let her speak for herself?

When it comes to her combat strengths she says her strength is “both physical and mental fitness – never submit.”

Her DWW boxing and wrestling record speaks to that big time.

Her video matches speak to brutal force, relentlessness, power, striking precision and the ability to absorb substantial pain.

fciwomenswrestling.com photo, DWW photo

The reviewers are cringing with excitement. “This is one of the best BSA fights ever. Don’t miss it. There are two of the world best fighters in an incredible and merciless fight to the finish. In the end, both brave female fighters are completely done and wiped out, even the proud winner is almost unable to stand up and it looks like as if the winner was even closer for falling unconscious then the loser had been. There’s a lot of respect we have to show to both these brave women for this awesome fight. That is without any doubts one of the best female fights in female fighting history.” Her match against Svetlana was a classic.

She has more accolades coming. This time against Rada.

“This is a BSA fight from our 1999 summer event between two of the best BSA fighters of all time. Rada was an Olympic Style Wrestling champion and she was the better woman on the ground level while Lessja was a strong and aggressive boxer who was the better woman in the standing position. Rada always tried to throw Lessja to the canvas while Lessja straight on tried to knock her out. However, Lessja is a strong woman and even a skilled freestyle wrestler like Rada is finding herself in huge trouble if a very strong and athletic woman like Lessja applies scissors and other submission holds.”

This is an intriguing description because when you view Lessja’s matches on video, she clearly is exceptional at wrestling and fighting from the ground level position.

Sporting green trunks and a red top, Lessja faced the always tough Galina and received a bloody nose for her efforts but kept going. It was a match where she would have been better off contending from the ground. Against Tatyana in front of a screaming crowd she was wise enough to keep Tatyana on the ground and achieved success as a result. Her match against Sveta proved that keeping her opponent on the ground worked to her advantage as well.

What amazed me about Lessja’s career is that she faced competitors from around the globe including a rock star from Israel named Addi who wanted to change the rules so that match was more brutal.

She faced all kinds of personalities including Galina. The reviewer smiles, “The jokes and bubbles of Galina’s personality hide the fact that she is a real fighter and afraid of nothing. Lessja comes from a rival town, and is determined to take away Galina’s local supremacy.”

I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me…..Hunter S. Thompson

This returns us to the subject of humanity’s lust for violence, a subject that could be written about endlessly.

A slice of the question I ask myself is that if this were a subject about males competing violently, would we even be talking about this, as though it’s accepted but when women like Lessja amp up the electricity the question becomes why is a good girl like her in a brutal place like this?

This subject of women and increasing violence came to the fore in a sport where no one seems to pay attention until things got violent.

Instead of a man of peace and love, I have become a man of violence and revenge…..Hiawatha

In November of 2009, the New York Times reported, “Fairly or unfairly, women’s college soccer usually draws almost zero public attention. It is probably no exaggeration to say that most games produce more goals than news accounts.

But the sport has gained viral attention as the violent play of a University of New Mexico defender, Elizabeth Lambert, has become an ignominious sensation on television, the Internet and talk radio.

Video of the incident has spurred a national debate about sportsmanship, gender roles, double standards regarding aggressiveness and news media coverage and the sexualized portrayal of female athletes.

Lambert, 20, has been suspended indefinitely by New Mexico after she engaged in shoving, punching, tripping and yanking an opponent down by the ponytail last Thursday in a 1-0 loss to Brigham Young.”

This incident created national headlines and created a firestorm of controversy and discussion.

Anson Dorrance, who has coached the North Carolina women’s soccer team to 20 national championships, said Tuesday that the vast majority of coaches and players “would never endorse that kind of behavior” demonstrated by Lambert. But he lamented that “the only way we seem to make the news is when something like this happens.”

Several recent incidents of aggressive behavior by female athletes have been highly publicized, including Serena Williams’s verbal tirade at the 2009 United States Open and a 2008 fight at a W.N.B.A. game involving Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks.

Regarding Ms. Lambert’s behavior on the soccer field, the interesting site jezebel.com shares, “Elizabeth Lambert was suspended from soccer earlier this month after video of her assaulting another player made national news. But in an interview with the Times, Lambert says it wouldn’t have been such a big deal if she were male.”

Ms. Lambert passionately continues, “I definitely feel because I am a female it did bring about a lot more attention than if a male were to do it,” Lambert said. “It’s more expected for men to go out there and be rough. The female, we’re still looked at as, Oh, we kick the ball around and score a goal. But it’s not. We train very hard to reach the highest level we can get to. The physical aspect has maybe increased over the years. I’m not saying it’s for the bad or it’s been too overly aggressive. It’s a game. Sports are physical.”

Okay Lessja, look at the discussion you inspired.

Lessja was an inspiration on the wrestling mats where she mostly boxed as well. Life is about choices and options and there could be an argument that if women want to engage in sports aggression, they should have the right to do so just like a male.

Apparently Lessja agrees.
