My love for oats will never end 😍❤️ cooked an egg into these - basically turns them into custard 😍 #oats #foodie #foodporn #healthyeating #health #nutrition #skulpture
⚡️⚡️ Reverse Diet ⚡️⚡️ So from left to right, this is 1 week before the Men's Physique show I competed in, the middle is 2- weeks post show, and the right is over 3-weeks post show 💪🏻... Have had a few too many drinks and ice creams due to social occasions/life/ having fun over the last week so I have lost a little condition so the goal is to report back a little tighter next Tuesday 💪🏻 Maintaining this condition is pretty comfortable for me! Kcals are high, energy is high, and training intensity is through the roof!! This is my happy place where I am able to eat a little more intuitively without counting very strictly, enjoy going out for dinner, coffee, lunch, having drinks with friends all while finding the balance to make sensible decisions when I need to and fully enjoy it when I neglect the sensible part of my brain for a day (or 7 🙈😂). Working with the @thefitclinic  for the duration of prep and this reverse diet has been an absolute pleasure and has made what can often be a struggle a seamless process 💪🏻👌🏻.... From the training perspective it's been extremely fun having kcals to play with again and I can't wait to share the progress I make over the next 6-8 months! This will not be a 1-dimensional "get big" plan as I personally find that can become a little tedious and boring! My plan is to improve my strength, power, speed, and overall athleticism and present this in a larger more functional package 💪🏻 stay tuned!

⚡️⚡️ Full Push Session below ⚡️⚡️ The first 2 Skulpture clients pictured here👌🏻 everything Skulpture provides is 100% supported by science but the first port of call where science meets application has been in my own training. Testing and experimenting with the application of science in my own training over the last 10+ years has taught me as much, if not more, than any of my formal education. A lot of what happens in a controlled research setting is not practical in a training setting. Merging science with practical application and creativity is where real progression can be seen. This is what we strive to do at Skulpture 💪🏻 Email the link in my bio to join the Team 🤘🏻 #skulpture #skulpturetips #teamskulpture #morningmotivation #mondaymotivation ****************************************

⚡️⚡️How do you monitor your food intake? ⚡️⚡️ Do you track macros or follow a more intuitive method? Recently I have been employing a somewhat hybrid method somewhere between loosely tracking macros and eating more intuitively ! It's been super effective and I've really enjoyed the break from very strict tracking. This is an awesome infographic I stole from @soheefit  with some really useful tips about employing a more intuitive eating method.  If you have a hard time recognising satiety this may not work for you! It's not always an easy thing to do, especially if you have been adhering to a strict nutrition plan where you are tracking everything. You begin to eat according to your plan and disregard satiety to an extent. But this is a skill that can be developed. It's also hugely beneficial to have an understanding of what is in food. This is why I often recommend that people track there food for a few weeks and slowly transition to more intuitive eating over time. I also find that picking 1-2 days per week/ 2 weeks to check your intake by tracking can train your  ability to eat more intuitively and stay on track 💪🏻 #skulpture #skulpturetips #science #health #fitness #nutrition #healthyeating

So this is me over 2-weeks post show checking in with @thefitclinic! Could not be happier with how I've managed to reverse out of this cut so far, and the credit goes completely to @thefitclinic and how she managed my entire prep! This is after a week of no counting macros followed by a week of very veryyyy loose counting... kcals have been high and training intensity has been AMAZING. This is the condition I plan on maintaining while I slowly grow 💪🏻... staying athletic, mobile, powerful, and healthy ⚡️⚡️ #transformation #health #morningmotivation #morning #health #nutrition #transformationtuesday #skulpture #tattoo #inked #tattooed

⚡️⚡️SKULPTURETIPS⚡️⚡️ The hamstring is a bi-articular muscle group. This means that it crosses two joints, the knee and the hip, and subsequently has two main functions (1) to flex the knee, and (2) to extend the hip. Therefore when doing lying hamstring curl variations it is important to both actively extend the hip by squeezing the glutes and pushing your hips into the bench, and to flex the knee which is the main movement of the action! This increases tension across the entire length of the muscle. A mistake a lot of people make (myself included sometimes😵🙈) is to allow their hips to pop up, off the bench, towards the end of the movement! This reduces tension on the hamstring specifically on the proximal aspect (section closest to the hip)!! Take home message: squeeze your butt cheeks when doing hamstring curls 😝 If you want to work with me on a one-one basis email Skulpturescience@gmail.com for online coaching 💪🏻 #skulpture #skulpturetips #onlinecoaching #training #strength #fitness #muscle #glutegains #legday
