Summer Daze🍂Autumn Haze 💙
Took the Personal strength session outdoors here where I did all of my hard core training in my hey days ✊🏽 I love this spot. I don't linger in the past and I rarely move ahead of myself to the future. Here and now is all we got ❤️🙏💙 -------------------------------------------------- Found an old email with training stats sent to my coach. 7 years ago now from mile repeats done here. Swipe Left and check it out 😀💨🏃🏽♀️ Mile repeats on One minute rest. Wow!
Those days when I trained by heart rate. Funny I have forgotten how zippy my mile reps used to be.
If I was to linger there where I used to be I would have stopped a while ago. Accept Life. Aging. Nature. Summer in Fall. Winter in Spring. All of it. And surrender 🙏
Got a 4x4 with 320lbs trapbar deadlift today. I love using the trapbar to teach the deadlift with younger athletes or I also use it to give the low back a bit of a break with more advanced athletes from a conventional deadlift.
There are three ways to increase the intensity of an exercise but most folks just focus on the first two: adding weight and/or increasing the reps. -
Continuing to add weight and reps to movements is an important principle of progressive overload but it is not the only way to progress an exercise. Slowing down the speed of the reps increases the time under tension, forcing the muscles to work longer. Before adding more weight and reps make sure that you can control the current weight at an appropriate rep speed. The general recommendation is a 2-3 second concentric phase and 3-4 seconds on the eccentric. -
Note: this recommendation is primarily for accessory strength movements like push-ups and row variations. For power/plyometric movements this style of training would not be effective or practical.
I usually hate all those pictures in the gym. I mean are you going to the gym to work out or what?? But today I wanted to do this picture because it's been 7 months since I started to train ( and eat clean too of course). Did I lose weight? Well not that much to be honest, not even 3 kg. Does it mean I didn't get results? Not at all! I learnt difference between muscle mass and fat mass and realised the number on the scale means nothing. You wanna know how many cm I lost!?? I'll tell you: 4 cm in the chest, 5 cm in the waist, 9 cm in my hip and 12 cm in my thight (yes 12 cm.... thank you squat, lunges and deadlift)! I've still a lot of work to do but for now I feel ready to wear my wedding dress 👰🏻(-23)! My advise: Do NOT believe to any promise of fast results. Work hard, sweat, eat clean (But do not cut off any nutrient. Your body need carbs too. And most important: Only a DOCTOR can give you a diet!!)
