Getting interviewed regarding my pro debut at @operationdocfrank 'a @thesupershow_nff Poseidon Classic. I was asked multiple questions, and this one is one that we as sponsored athletes, get frequently.. "What is 5%?" 🎥
Squats from today's lower A session
I'm rather limited to the exercises I can video as I won't be deviating from them now for sometime
Here is the first of my 2 down sets after already doing 2 sets in the 4-6 range
Despite a decrease in load these are still incredibly challenging due to accumulation of fatigue from the previous heavy squats and hamstring work
I enjoy the mental aspect of these increased reps, I have to break the set up into checkpoints (okay that's 4 reps... now another 4... then... 2 okay final 2 now 😤)
Feeling the effects right now 🐱
One thing about preparing for a competition is the mental game it plays. I feel really flat and depleted, but you must trust your own process (or coaches) without any doubts. I have a special treat for myself tomorrow ⚔️
Been MIA the last few weeks due to a non lifting related injury. Unfortunately I have a slight tear in my right delt, and to say the last 3 weeks has been a struggle would be putting it lightly. From the mental struggle, not being able to be active, to recently starting to cut back on my macros, I've been struggling. From being thrown off of my routine, to struggling with how I look and feel. Yes, men struggle with self image as well... Honestly tho, I've had a kick ass week at work, and @thomasschnepp has been a god send, helping me out with program and macro adjustments so we can work around my injury. The dude is a class act and a hell of a coach.
So to be driving home tonight, closing in on my first week back in the gym (strictly leg accessory work and abs😑) I am 100x happier than I was at this point in time last week and I could not be more thankful for that. So Sorry for the long post, just a little bit of honesty on how this vegetarian meathead is holding up. Happy Friday!👊🏽
Huge shoutout to my client & good friend @carlitoreid who tries out for the Canadian Football League (CFL) tomorrow!•
Charles has always been a gifted football player (4 yr college starting cornerback), but less than a month ago he came to me wanting to make a change. He wanted to shed a few unwanted lbs to get him in better shape just in case he had a try out. So we got him set up on macros and flexible dieting and got the exact results we were shooting for•
Charles has lost 6 pounds in a little over 3 weeks and greatly improved his body composition, strength, and agility/speed. All it took was consistency and the right diet to take Charles to the next level•
I wish you the best of luck man and am very thankful for all the hard work you have put in. Join Charles and start your transformation today!•
Tonight’s pre-workout consisted of coffee, mead, and a jolly rancher ☺️
Don’t fret the small stuff like preworkout, great lighting, and small wrists. Instead focus on positive things, a clean living room, a nice silhouette, and a developing brachialis 😁
Happy #FlexFriday 💪🏽
SIDE EFFECTS OF STEROIDS💉💊 ---------------------------------------------------
3D Delts and Acne, the two major "giveaways" to steroid users. This dude literally came up to me today and said "hey bro, you don't have to lie or anything cause it's between you and me. Who do you get your steroids from?" I told him I didn't take any. He didn't believe me and said "Come on bro, it's obvious. Nobody gets 3D Delts and has bad acne unless you're on something." I just laughed and kept doing lateral raises😏.
Tbh I was so happy he told me that, because it showed how much work I've put in thes past couple months. Proud, but never satisfied.
You need to have trust that the work you are
putting in now will result in the life you want
Sometimes it's difficult to see that the little
actions you take every day will add up for the
That's where belief and faith comes in. You
don't have to link it with religion or Gods or
anything of the sort but just the mindset that it
is all for a reason.
All the work, sweat, and time spent working on
you will pay off in the long run. On those days
you feel like "what's the point?"
Remember that time will pass anyways. And
what you do in between that time will be the
life that you look back on and say "holy shit,
that was all worth it"
Back starting to feel the way it should. Had a bit of a scare these past few days but after today I'm confident I'll be back at it hard next week. Despite that happening though this week was awesome. I've been having this internal battle with myself lately. Whether or not I'm on the right track towards my vision and if I'm doing as much as I can to be the type of person I want to be or can I be doing more... After today I just have this feeling internally that I'm right where I should be and that I'm on the right track. Have to start living more in the moment and not worrying about the day prior or the day ahead. Just have to keep doing my best to become better and making those around me better as well. Have to keep continuing to learn how to be more selfless. Not an easy task, but something I feel is necessary for me. Never been more align with my true self as much as I am at this moment. 🙌🏼💯
Hey y'all 🙋🏼 guess what? Yes I work. Yes it's at a salon. So ya know what that means? Some days I wear a full face of makeup to work, which leads to the gym afterwards! Do I get stared at weirdly as "that girl" ...yep. Do I care? Nope!!! If you feel comfortable In the gym wearing makeup, wear it! If you don't? Well then dont! Simple as that. Ok I'm off my high horse for the day 😘 carry on! #doyou#comfortableinmyownskin#abs#oneweekout
