240kgx10 without belt. Showed up to showoff. When you suppose to do conventional deadlifts after a rough squat/deadlift session yesterday But ending up doing 240kgx10 Because they asked and your ego is to Big to say No. #tyngre#nocco
REALITY CHECK: Let's face it, we all hit walls along our health/fitness journey 🛣 We can plan to have that chicken salad and end up having a pizza and ice cream 🍕🍨 We can plan to do that 10K run and only do 3K 🏃🏽♀️ This happens to EVERYONE at least once in their life! It is NOTHING to be ashamed of 🙌🏽 The only workout you should regret is the one you didn't do! We all have to start somewhere and we all have those moments where it falls apart slightly. As long as we have the willpower to say "okay, enough" and pick it back up again then what's there to worry about?! 😊💕 I want to encourage any mums that you can start slow and STILL make progress 🙌🏽💪🏽 That you can still have your favourite foods every now and again as a reward for your efforts! Like me right now... about to go eat cake 🍰😝 Know why? Because balance is key 🔑It isn't a race, you don't have to be squatting the same as the girl next to you or weigh the same as the person you are running next to. SET YOUR OWN PACE, COMPETE WITH YOURSELF 🏆 And those little "hiccups" are okay, they make you human 😘 Never stop or even be put off beginning your own journey because you are worried you aren't fit enough or strong enough or have enough will power because you do. STEP ONE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT/PROUDEST STEP IN YOUR WHOLE JOURNEY 🎉💕 We got this mamas 💪🏽😘 ps I feel like a little bumblebee 🐝💕
This #tbt I took a look through my progress photos waaaay back to the end of 2015. I was 206lbs, unhealthy, unhappy, and my true self was hiding underneath.
Fast forward to today - I fluctuate around 180lbs (I have so much more muscle now than I did then that my weight doesn't matter to me that much) I look better, feel better, and have trained and pushed to the point that I even consider myself a competitive athlete (at least two other people agree). Through my brother the Maestro ( @maestro_jordan ) I've set upon a journey to unlocking my bodies full potential. I use to have to take care when I bent over - now I can deadlift 315lbs. I use to get winded when I got to the top of stairs - now I run hills three times a week, do cardio kickboxing three times a week, and even teach classes myself!
And beyond my body - who I am inside has taken quite the overhall. I've embraced the parts of myself that I need help with. I accept that my psyche and my emotions are far from perfect, and that becoming a better man means accepting that. My love @lexwhite_ helped me be okay with who I am, and taught me the value of talking out problems and not hiding my feelings. She helped me understand how much of my mind was rational and how much wasn't. She gave me confidence I never had, love I'd always desperately needed, and the support that allowed me to go after my goals.
My best friend @garylucasgaming has helped me create a home environment in which I can be myself - no matter how ridiculous, flamboyant, or flatulent I need to be that day.
My brother @raycamro came back into my life and helped complete a circle of family I'd always wanted while also opening my mind to a world of perspective I'd never experienced before and helped me truly accept and understand the things going on inside my head.
And through my new life with @mightymaestrofitness I've found fun and meaning! I'm part of a fitness family of which I train alongside and teach. I see people excelling after goals and help them get there.
So this throwback Thursday remember what I've come to learn - sometimes your rock bottom falls at the base of the biggest hill you'll ever have the privilege of climbing
low-key obsessed with weird socks that don't match anything. In this case bright yellow 🌝
had a couple DM's about feeling nervous weightlifting / not sure where to start, so I thought I'd make a post touching on it if das ok wichuuu💁🏻 the main things stopping anyone from going into the weight section (I believe) are 1. Fear of failure 2. Fear of judgement 3. No idea what to do. Here are my thoughts on each of these... 1. You will not fail. If you've tired you've succeeded. You don't HAVE to do a 60kg squat the moment you enter, or whatever. If it's your first ever barbell squat squat with no additional weights. Get a feel for it and move on from there! You'll only fail if you don't try 👍🏽
2. No one actually cares, that's the thing lol. I was so so so paranoid about people watching me and judging my tiny weights. I still overthink it sometimes, but how are we ever going to get anywhere if we're concerned with what other people are thinking instead of our own workout?
3. Come prepared for the first few sessions. To this DAY I still whip out my phone and watch Instagram videos of exercises I've saved to watch and try in the gym. It's the best way 👏🏽 write down what you are going to do that day, the sets and reps and just take your time 😊
hope this helps / reminds anyone who needs it! Go smash your session ✨👊🏽🤓😈 #thinkagainthursdays

Female Testosterone Myth 2:
Testosterone treatment in females isn’t well established.
Super false. Despite many believing that hormone therapy is a relatively new concept, testosterone has been used to safely treat women as early as the 1930’s! Since then it has been established as an effective and safe treatment for women, with long term treatments recorded in up to 40 years of continuous therapy. As mentioned in our previous blog, most safety concerns from testosterone stem from the no-longer-used oral variant. All current forms, monitored correctly, are reliable and harmless, even in the long term.
Nothing new today- simple is effective! Really focusing on mind connecting to the muscle you're working goes a long way! •
I used @d_mclean bandz today and it helped me engage my glutes so much! I always show my last burn out cable exercise because it's super killer at the end of your leg day! Try it 🤗
PLANK ROTATION VARIATIONS: This core combo is an awesome core & oblique workout. With the addition of the variations you can also make it a killer upper body workout.
Variation 1: alternate rotating between one side plank & then the other.
Variation 2: after each side rotation, add in a push-up.
Variation 3: after each side plank bring one knee into a side crunch, & then drop down into a push-up.
Aim to do 3-5 sets of 10-12 reps on each side.
Day 2 of #bootyfulyoga is any pigeon variation ❤ -

After yesterday's RUBBISH workout I decided to go gym again today and it was amazing. I moved up 7kg in both Hip Abduction and Adduction and also moved up to the next kettle bell and did a killer squat set! 🎉
I also took these progress pics super quick (I don't know if I can do the proper fitsta pose yet) but I feel so much more optimistic than I did yesterday! -
These pics are 1.5 months in and I'm pleased to finally be seeing little changes and progress 💪🏻💖
