Got some weird looks while I was setting this up. I guess resistance training isn’t a well understood practice. Or perhaps it was just the way I jury-rigged this system. Regardless, it was a nice movement to work on explosion and reemploy conventional deadlift form.
And back down again.

Honestly, until last week the answer to this question was no. I felt stuck.
Don’t get me wrong, I have a job that pays my bills and I’m engaged to the best man in the world. I’m very grateful. I just seems that somewhere along the lines I gave up on my personal vision and my goals- including my wellness goals.
•So my physical health dropped. I never been as sick or injured as this last year! (I currently have a cough I’ve had for over a month!)
•My mental health slipped. I had anxiety and depression flare ups worse than I’ve ever experience.
•My financial health suffered. I got caught up with eating out and doctors bills are expensive!
But today. Today I choose to go to the gym for my physical health. I choose to meditate and sleep enough for my mental health. I choose to not go out to eat, but drink my yummy shakes at home to improve my financial health.
What steps are you taking today?

3 WAYS to increase your metabolism! ⠀⠀
👊🏼 Use progressive overload in your workouts. If you've been using the same dumbbells for the past 2 months, go up in weight. Your body adapts, so you need to introduce change in your workouts to keep seeing progress. ⠀⠀
👊🏼 Eat more protein. Muscle tissues are metabolically active, which means that they burn calories even at rest. Protein builds muscle, so feeding them enough ensures that your body doesn’t take protein from your muscles for energy when you're in a caloric deficit. ⠀⠀
👊🏼 Do more HIIT. High intensity interval training increases your metabolic rate because your body burns calories long after your workout is over. ⠀⠀
I hope this helped if you've hit a plateau. Change up your exercises or diet to keep your body in an anabolic state, guys! #iam1stphorm
Sending you smiles and positive energy on this Terrific Tuesday!!!
the prevention of the progress, success, or fulfillment of something. • that is one word I could use to sum up how this prep has been. There is nothing more discouraging when the hard work you put in day in and day out is not being showcased. Wish I had answers as to why this prep has been the most challenging mentally and physically but hopefully it will lead to great success in the future 🤞🏻
Truer freakin’ words... I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told I’m too sensitive, and I used to see that as a bad thing, but not anymore!
The world NEEDS more sensitive, empathetic people. It’s HARSH out there, and it’s so easy to feel alone, but we are never alone!
Less looking down on people who are sensitive, more looking up to people who can see outside their own problems and show compassion for others 💕
Today was a mixture of... "Shut up and dweet" VS "Damn I'm so tired!" The first one almost win! 😁💪💪🙌
New Training Start. It's full body focusing on strengthening the core and legs while still gaining stamina!

New feet, who dis?
After 5 years of swearing I wouldn’t be able to snatch if I started with my feet in closer, I finally decided to get uncomfortable. While the initial set up feels very awkward, the second I lift off is a serious game changer. It feels strong AF. It’s helping me actually use my legs and not my back. 😳🤯 @frisciad3
knew that I needed to move my feet in but was waiting for me to do it on my own terms. He said he had to get me to trust him and myself first. We had a bonding moment and I felt all the feels. Now we just have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and get shit done. 😬

Change does not happen overnight. It’s a long process of changing habits, that in most cases you have had your whole life. That is not easy! So start by making small changes and make each one stick before moving to the next.
I have to stay late at night today and I need to eat out twice in one day. 2 goals that do not typically align with #weightloss
. We know it's about consistency and for me the routine is a big part of it. So while it definitely stresses me out I still need to find a way around it. So the first thing I did was track the food I am eating today. Not surprisingly I have no fat left. So the next thing is to work around my remaining macros.... Carbs and protein. #solutions
.... I am determined to get my speed and agility back so I will find a way.
And the reason I move this weight day in and day out is about something that's way bigger than me. It is not about a total, a record, or an individual victory.
It is about standing up against the odds. It is about showing everyone out there that if you just keep showing up long enough and remain true to your goals- they will come.
All you need is time.
With time we learn a lot about ourselves. We learn to hold ourselves accountable, we learn to be self aware, we learn that if we want a desired outcome- we must input the amount of effort it requires.
Spend your time wisely.
It is the greatest gift you have.
Give your time and energy to those who appreciate its value.
And spend your time becoming the person you choose to be. Be the best in the world. -@bamaburr
I had Mexican food today.. why am I like this 😭😂 it was delicious though and fueled me through this workout phew my arms hurt
