In bodybuilding symmetry and proportions is everything if your goal is to look aesthetic! Don't compare your self to anyone, you must estimate your own body and identify which body parts are lacking and which ones are taking over, build your physique with intelligence, don't look too often at the scale but in the mirror ... and of course in order to objectively estimate your body composition you have to be lean! Otherwise the layer of fat will confuse you. And in any case scenario it's more effective to build muscles once you already lean! I spoke about it couple times but will mention again - for natural athletes, bulking (caring any fat) is absolutely stupid and doesn't give and advantage! Being #shredded365 gives you opportunities to build lean (quality) muscles faster due to better insulin sensitivity therefore better nutrients absorption by the body! You have to eat just enough to maintain constant anabolic state in the body !
Eat smart , train hard and think with your head when you do both 😊
It took me almost 13 years to build my physique and I'll try to cover all my main rules of this beautiful lifestyle of a natural athlete in my ebook that I'm finishing very soon ... 🤘🏼😄stay shredded forever
It was a technique, mobility and build fat frickin arms kinda day 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 hell yeah @fatgripz
Tbh, today was meant to be a heavy deadlift day. But when dieting hard, you've got to listen to your body! I felt flat as a pancake going into the session, so I listened and adapted accordingly!
Along your training journey it's vitally important to listen to what your body is telling you!!!! Trying to smash out 75%, 90%, 100% of your max on a day where you feel rubbish is most likely going to end in a train wreck 🚑 there will be other days!!!! Just be disciplined, tweak accordingly and work your flipping a*** off 💥💥💥💥💥💥
Because why would I take a picture of the full plate when it's all about the P L A N T A I N 💛💚😋 #plantainisbae#blackvegansofig
P.S. This is a moment of silence and voyeurism for plantain. You can google the health benefits. 😝

When you have better form, you don't get hurt, and you see faster results cause you are using the right muscles and not compensating. .
✅core tight, belly button to spine
✅shoulders back and down
✅keep your elbows to your sides ✅curl your wrists to your shoulders as you maintain your core engagement and shoulders back
❌round your back
❌no core engagement
❌roll your elbows forward
❌roll your shoulders forward .
Good form is #1 ! If this helped, give me a double tap and let me know which move you want to see next⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇
Tip of the day: When doing hammer curls have the dumbbells have your palms facing towards your body. Using the same motion as a curl come up with your palms still facing inward. Squeeze and the top for about a second and slowly feel the muscle stretch as you bring your arms back to the starting position. Try to this for 3-4 sets of 10-15 reps 💪🏼
I've been struggling with my energy levels big time lately but today I finally got it. I forgot that when you chase a high you gotta face coming down. I've been using things like loads of coffee & sugar to keep myself up, but then after it wears off I deal with this heavy blanket of exhaustion. And as much as I don't like that feeling I have to take responsibility for it. My point is, life already has so many uncontrollable ups and downs, this is something I actually CAN control. Whatever I feed my brain/body IS IN MY control. Yes! #healthylife#energyboost#onlinetrainer#yogateacher

These past 12 weeks have been amazing! I've spent thousands over the years on personal training sessions, gym memberships that i didnt use and supplements i had no idea if i needed or not-the list is endless.
I have always been unhappy with my body and have worn baggy clothes to hide the shape of my body, but one night scrolling through facebook with a slice of pizza in my hand, I came across your page and saw the before and after pictures of your clients. I remember messaging you and explaining that I work away a lot but you replied saying that it would be possible.
When I say that this has been the best thing I have ever done I really mean it. My confidence is through the roof, I now love a selfie or 3 and can wear skinny jeans and fitted tops and even decent boxers with the name brand around the top instead of the cheap ones I used to wear.
Ive changed so much in 12 weeks and I have you to thank massively. I recommend you to anyone and everyone and I will most definitely be working with you again if you will have me lol.

Бабуле тоже нравятся мои покупки! Ещё бы, они были так выстраданы, только одна @kovalval знает чего все это мне стоило! Теперь я всегда на связи со своими подопечными 🤗🤗🤗 Смартбук оказался очень крутым малым, раскрывается на 180, два микрофона, невероятно легкий и шустрый, очень красивый: белый ❤По телефону, хотела взять семёрку, но эта кнопка 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️я чуть не сломала телефон с витрины и взяла 6s, плюс в руке не помещается и дико не удобен для меня. Осталось докупить аксессуары и этот профиль скоро будет не узнать, отвечаю 😎😎🦄
🍵Studies have shown that drinking coffee may propose health benefits, including protecting against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease, including liver cancer. Coffee also appears to improve cognitive function and decrease the risk of depression. Each cup typically has 60-100mg of caffeine; and remember, it's a diuretic, so drink mindfully!

Off to see the surgeon, the wonderful surgeon of OZ 👨🏾⚕️💉✨ - this morning marks 4 months and 3 weeks #postop from my 1st of 4 #excessskinremoval surgeries [BA & TT: Dec 22, 2016] and I'm headed to see Dr. Husain for my follow up appointment. I'll be getting some antibiotics for my ear infection and having him check the skin abrasion from my cyst acne that I was having problems with last week. Everything has healed so well and I'm really just waiting for my immunity to rebound before I go pushing myself too hard again. Coaches are feeding me a more basic plan, and "bodybuilding" isn't the MAIN priority right now, it's more about getting my body back to #fightmode (I have to be healthy, not sick, to get anything built at the gym). - I would be lying if I said I wasn't bored, sad, disappointed I've had to take some "time off", but heck, I NEED IT. I put everything I had into this year: launching my business Ruthlyss Fitnyss® Online Personal Training, completing a 29 week intensive surgery prep, 8 months of full time university, massive surgery at Christmas (they removed 5 pounds of skin JUST from my lower abdomen), cleared for activity after 7 days, back to class after 12 days, back to regular lifting after 3-4 weeks. PLUS ALLLLL the personal life stressors that EVERYONE deals with. I'm just healing, doing me, letting my body reset, trying to enjoy my little bit of time off from classes (going back in 5 days: May 1st). All I want just to be back in the gym, doing what I love, but I have to take care of this body, and it's fighting too hard. My hope is that I will be able to actually get back to lifting (not just baby cardio on my home treadmill) by the end of the week. • I'm not carb cycling right now, just levelling out. Eating coloured veggies and lots of balanced nutrients. Drinking 5-6L of water a day (chug,chug...) and doing little things that will set me up for success: like laundry, meal prep and meditations (philosophical thinking and writing). I'm sitting @ 16% BF👌🏽 Up 5% but THAT WAS THE PLAN post surgery, this is not a surprise. I'm very happy with where I'm maintaining, considering the lack of consistent training since surgery. 👇🏽 #stillgotabs

Other people may inspire you to go for your goal or to start on your journey but your motivation must come from within. Inspiration is what lights the fire but motivation is what keeps it burning. The inner motivation is what gets you up 5-10 minutes earlier to get in some stretches. Motivation is what makes you go for that extra rep at the end of a set. Look for inspection all around you but find true motivation within yourself. #inspiration#motivateyourself#innerdriveingforce#motivation#keepyourfireburning#winningedgescfit
If you can't find one be one. Your reality is a reflection of your thoughts, and what you focus on. If you focus on the bad, your life will seem bad. Stop being a negative Nancy and turn into a positive Polly 🤣💁
