Mastering the snatch has been a long, slow process for me! But, baby steps and finally I’m feeling more confident 😀! It’s looking ok too...bit wobbly, but ok 👌! Lots more practise to be done but I’m getting there 🏋🏼♀️💫
Shape after a full day of Thanksgiving cheat meals 🦃🤗
Zero bloating. Zero water retention. But how???
If you stick to a healthy diet 95% of the time, workout HARD, never skip your cardio, you EARN your cheat meals!
Here are a few quick tips if you’re feeling bloated today:
- avoid all the leftovers. It’s hard 😢 I know
- drink extra water. This helps reduce water retention that was caused from all the yummy, salty food. I’m shooting for 1 gallon 💦
- get in some exercise 💪🏽 this will kick start your metabolism and also put all those extra calories to use. I’m making today leg day 🏋🏽♀️
- avoid alcohol 🍷 I don’t know about you, but I drank wayyy too much wine last night 🤣 this causes dehydration which leads to the body holding on to water (bloating/water retention) so avoid the excess booze today and swap it out with water.
Regranned from @mentalityoverstrength - Have weak Hamstrings ⁉️ •
1) The first exercise is a variation of a stiff legged deadlift. Slow negative and focusing a lot of mind muscle connection. I really feel the stretch in my hamstrings doing this exercise. 4x12 with medium weight.
2) The second exercise is a Hamstring/ Glute squat variation . Using a smith machine have your stance farther in front of you. This will put the load more on your hamstring and glutes. At the bottom pause,which allows more stretch and explode back up. 4x10
Ladies, it’s not a secret that having a good deodorant is key for us to be confident before and after we workout. As you all know I love my super powerful HIIT workouts followed by a good stretch session, but having the right @sure protection for me is absolutely key. That’s why I swear by Sure Maximum Protection Sport Strength anti-perspirant, which provides 48hrs of sweat and odour protection. So we can workout in confidence knowing you will feel fresh before, during and after every single HIIT session!

Sometimes I need reminding too...
When you’re client/friend @s_l_usher 😝 writes a post about you telling her to roll and stretch after her run...and it reminds you that you haven’t done any of this today and need to do the same 🤦🏽♀️ Hopefully this will remind someone else to do their homework too?!
Practise what you preach 👊🏼
Struggling a bit with this being the 5th set let me explain why.👇🏾 Yesterday’s leg session consisted of: 100Rep squat to start with - warm up,
then the aim is to pick a decent weight you can at LEAST hit 5reps with then drop weight twice, after each drop set is consistent with minimal/0 rest
So every 20 reps was 1 set, the aim was to hit a minimum of 20Reps each full set, within a maximum of 5 full sets = 100+ Reps
Followed by Heavy leg press 5 sets 20 reps drop if needed - (stayed with weight)
Heavy Leg extension 4 sets 15+ reps minimum
Standing leg curls 4 sets of 20 - 25 reps
Seated calf raises 4x 25reps And weighted RDL’s superset
Standing calf raises to failure to finish.
I wish I had the whole workout recorded it was crazy!
Got stubborn legs that won’t grow Force them to!
Mix things up with heavy weights plus volume, drop sets and supersets. Today I literally can’t walk,
But one thing I do know they’ll be forced to start growing!
Give my workout a try DM me and let me know what you think.

1️⃣TRX LOW ROWS 4x12
> TARGETS: Back, abs, shoulders, biceps
> HOW: This move is the key to a strong back. Grab the handles with your palms facing down. Lean all the way back until weight is on your heels, arms extended out in front of you, and body forms a diagonal. Squeeze shoulder blades together and keep your core tight as you bend your elbows and pull torso up to meet your hands. -
2️⃣TRX BICEP CURLS 4x12 (incorporating the both)
> TARGETS: Abs and arms
> HOW: Face toward the TRX anchor point and grab one handle in each hand, palms facing. Lean all the way back until your arms are extended and the strap is taut. To activate your biceps, bend elbows (without letting them drop) until hands frame your temples, slowly pulling body up as you do so. Return to start—and then ask for two tickets to the gun show, please.
NOTE: Watch the direction of the palms. Small changes in your exercise can hit a different muscle group.
Do you take steroids?
I get asked this question more then I think I should. More then I think it should be the go to question when you see someone busting their ass to get ahead. .
The answer is no! I have never reached that point of total commitment where my diet is flawless, my training is to failure on every set. Where my sleep is perfect and my stress is managed. Maybe at that point I would contemplate the idea of seeing what my human potential could be outside the confines of my body and souls but until that point. No, I don’t take steroids. .
I love fitness and I love training. I love how the gym is my safe place and how it makes me feel. I love how I am an artist in control of my body’s appearance and much like a sculpture it will take, days, weeks and years till I one day look at it and consider it perfect. Fuck, maybe that day will never come. But that is ok. The work along the way was pretty damn rewarding. .
Do what you must, I am not judging.
