The gym !
You know why this place is so sacred ? Every time I have lost it all I’ve ended up here ! No friends to talk to , no family ! Is funny how when you are at your lowest everyone disappears! And the only there for me is god and this place ! I see people walking here just like me ! Trying to better themselves ! Desperate for a change ! For their life’s to turn around and get better ! Yet we keep fighting ! We keep seeing each other and it’s so beautiful how then you become best friends with that person and you end up motivating each other to overcome the obstacles! To fight ! Be the warriors you were called to be ! No matter how different we might look physically, we all have the same needs inside ! We all want to be loved ! To be accepted ! For people to be proud of us ! So little by little you pick yourself up ! And you build a stronger you ! A stronger character in this place ! Where the iron don’t talk but instead pushes you , challenges you ! And one day you realize ! Not only you left your worries and problems behind ! You moved up and now you see a person you can’t even recognize ! A stronger you ! A much better you ! One who doesn’t give up ! Who knows pain but also knows not to let self doubt play games with you ! This place doesn’t build bodybuilders or competitors ! This place repairs souls that were once broken ! This place allows you to see your own self value as human ! If you trust yourself and show up here not expecting anything but working as hard as you can ! You will understand what I’m talking about !
HOW TO STRUCTURE YOUR CHEST WORKOUT PART 2 - after finishing your two pressing exercises it is time to finish of your chest with flys.
The best way to preform flys in my opinion is to superset cable with dumbbell flys. Cables provide you with constant tension and strong contraction while dumbbell give you great stretch. Together they create a massive pump in your chest which is perfect way to finish of a workout ( and yes ,pump has a far greater purpose than just a cosmetic enhancment for taking postworkout selfie but I am not going to go in details now. I might do a separate post about it if people are interested in it).Pick flys acording to your genetics and week points.I included my two favorite supersets in videos.
How much sets per exercise?
Well that depends. ⏩Begginers will be fine by doing 3-4 sets of each press and finishing it off with 3-4 supersets of cable and db flys .9-12 sets in total. ⏩Intermediat lifter should lean more throwards doing 4 sets for all excersises and doing 2 different variations of cable-db flys superset.16 sets in total. ⏩Advanced lifters can do 4-5 sets for both presses and both flying supersets while adding in forced reps and dropsets. 16-20 sets in total.
WORKOUT EXAMPLE ( using me as example,advanced lifter how needs more upper chest development) ⏩Incline BB press 4 x 6-8 ( forced reps aplyed ) ⏩Flat DB press 4 x 8-10 ( last set is dropset) ⏩Low pulley cable crossover + incline db flys 5 x 12-15 + 12-15 ⏩High pulley cable flys + db pullovers 5 x 12-15 + 12-15
Hope it helps, enjoy.
DISCLAIMER: This not the only way to workout your , there are other ways equaly effective. This is just me sharing my experience and what I found out to be effectiv over the 6+ years of traning. Give at shot you just might like it.
10/10 Escape Room event! @horrorescapesla Experienced my first Escape room last night and it was an absolute blast. We took on the Advanced level and were literally just 1 minute away from escaping the final room before we ran out of time. I'll count that as a victory! Lol Celebrated at Gaam in Koreatown after, followed by @holyrolyicecream . 😌 #HorrorEscapesLA
