Whilst a coach or trainer provides the tools for a client to achieve results, the effectiveness of a plan predominantly comes down to the person undertaking it.
Having worked with Therese before, both @ptpaul9 and @steevob10 who worked together helping Therese with her nutrition and training knew what they were dealing with. A determined, dedicated and highly motivated woman who would leave nothing get in her way of achieving results.
Over the course of the last 6 months, Therese has lost a massive 39 pounds along with getting fitter, stronger and growing in confidence week on week. We couldn’t be more proud of Therese and here is what she had to say about the last few months.
‘In February I was blessed with an amazing baby boy. Shortly after he was born I came to the realisation that the weight I had put on during pregnancy was not fluid like I had been trying to convince myself. As soon as my GP gave me the all clear, I contacted both Steve & Paul. I no longer felt fit or healthy & my confidence was very low. I needed help to get back to being the best version of myself that I could be because that's the mother my baby deserved..I wanted to feel like myself again. Steve & Paul had helped me reach my goals before & I was at my healthiest, fittest & strongest just before I became pregnant. I knew I could trust them both & true to form they were both so supportive, encouraging & helpful. They were always contactable & worked together, helping me set goals for along the way. I'm nearly back to where I want to be, but I couldn't have done it without either of them. Nutrition & training really do go hand in hand & I am beyond grateful to them both for all of their help’. .
210kg deadlift off a platform (around 3inches) 5X3 comfortably - RPE 7
Why use a platform? For me on that day because my hamstrings were still feeling the stress from leg day, but a platform is a great regression from a traditional deadlift because there is less distance to travel - help build up strength in this shorter range and then progress to the full thing.
The world needs more kindness, more compassion, more joy, and more laughter. ❤ Learn to forgive. It’s incredible how bitterness and resentment can hold you into bondage. 🚨 BOOK ALERT! 🙂 We’ve all been hurt by someone person or treated badly. Guess what? The pain you are feeling is normal, but sometimes that pain lingers for too long. We relive the pain over and over, and have a hard time letting go. 🤦🏼♀️I’m guilty of this too. 🤷🏼♀️ This has caused me to be unhappy because I dwell on the situation. This is a huge distraction from the important things in life. We are pretty much trapped in a cycle of anger and hurt. 🔄 When this happens, we miss out on the beauty of life as it happens. 🌍 This is easier said than done, but it’s important to learn to let it go. Frozen couldn’t of said it any better. ☺️Forgiveness can change your life.
It's been a while since I've posted, so here's a 'not so fit' physique update.
For the past while I've been working up in camp, and my diet quickly transitioned from clean bulk, to downright dirty bulk. I ended bulking up to 193lbs, - granted that's fully clothed and on a full stomach - which is a bit too fluffy to say the least.
Now that I'm back home it's time to get back on the clean bulk and rediscover my abs. Although working 13 hour days was fun, I'll be looking forward to spending more time in the gym and not rushing after finishing my main lift to get to bed earlier.
