Portraits of DTLA

Downtown LA has evolved so much over the years, but the soul of DTLA has stayed the same – artistic, hustling, and real.

VoyageLA is all about supporting creatives and risk takers – from makeup artists, fashion designers and music producers to chefs, entrepreneurs and more.  In our Portraits series we try to celebrate their work by sharing some of our favorite shots we’ve come across.  We’ve share shots from the DTLA below.

DEADLIFT VARIATION FOR KNEE AND BACK PAIN . 🌶 Variety is the spice of life and so are deadlifts. Demo’ed here is an “offset” deadlift. It’s not your traditional “split stance” position, because it’s more narrow, but still does change up the demands on the body. . 🍑 I’ve found this particular position to be beneficial for those who struggle with “feeling” their glutes with traditional deadlifts. As well as getting a nice stretch within the hamstrings. . ↕️ The “offset” weight in the opposite arm increases the demand on the “core” to resist rotation. Never a bad idea to get some extra work in there. . 👍🏼 This variation also forces you to resist rotation at the hips as well. Allowing you to build a more resilient knee and can potentially help in the rehab process. . 🙏🏼 Practice the movement without weight, then gradually increase as you progress. Any hinge movement is good to practice. We all have to bend down/over at some point in our lives, might as well get strong doing it.
