How many of you find getting to the gym in winter (specifically Jan) so difficult?🙋🏼♀️ The weather here is shocking and it gets dark really early so motivation can be really hard to find. These three things really help me though:
1️⃣Finding my why. A reason that makes you want to reach your goals so much nothing can stand in the way.
2️⃣Positive reinforcement - a reward for accomplishing a task that tricks your brain into associating a difficult thing with a positive thing! E.g cooking your fave healthy meal or watching a show on the treadmill
3️⃣Routine. Your body functions best when it knows what to expect in terms of food, nutrition and training. So, even in the dead of winter at 10pm if your body expects you to train at that time you will feel more energized 👏🏼 What do you think? Drop your top tips below!👇🏼
HOW TO BUILD THE BACK OF A GOD
In this post, I’m going to teach you how to build a downright incredible back with ease.
Building an amazing back is pretty simple. You see, I have an equation for developing a big back. It goes something like this…
The stronger you are on weighted chin ups or pull ups, the better your back will look.
In fact, I’ve never seen this equation fail.
THE BEST WAY TO DO WEIGHTED PULL-UPS
The most effective way to do weighted chin ups is in a reverse pyramid fashion. A detailed example of reverse pyramid training for pull-ups is shown above.
An important note is that you drop the weight by 10% of TOTAL WEIGHT (bodyweight + additional weight) for the second and third sets.
Now the key is this: the next workout, you want to increase each set by 2.5 lbs. So, every workout you’ll be adding 2.5 lbs to your weighted chin ups. That may not sound like a lot, but after months of training you can build up to 100+ lbs, pretty easily…
HOW STRONG SHOULD I TRY TO GET?
I listed all strength standards in a slide above.
If you can build up to the Warrior level, you’ll have a pretty damn solid back – you’ll appear powerful, capable and well developed.
If you hit the Greek God level, you’ll begin to really, really stand out. As well, your strength will be godlike.
If you get to the Superhero level, people may very well mistake you for a real-life superhero.
THIS WILL MAKE YOUR ARMS AND BACK LOOK GOD-LIKE
This method is so effective that it will blow your mind. I can’t stress the effectiveness of this protocol enough! Get strong on weighted pull ups and you will build incredible, real-world strength and your back and arms will look godlike.

There really is no greater feeling than finishing a workout.🙌🏻 I am a creature of habit—and I do love the gym, but some days I freakin dreaddd it.😩 But when I don’t feel like going, I remind myself of how great it’ll feel once I’m done, and that pushes me to get after it.💪🏻**or throw on some freakin Cardi B😎**
That being said, it is important to listen to your body, and if you do need that day of rest, by all means, take it!🧘🏻♀️
Also, been loving adding a BOSU ab blast at the end of my workouts lately 2-3x a week.☺️🙌🏻 I love the BOSU because it challenges balance and stability, which is allll core strength.👏🏻 And I just love switching it up & incorporating different things to constantly be shocking my body, cuz that’s what it’s all about babaaay.🙌🏻
Lastly!⚠️: taking on more personal training & nutrition clients so DM me if interested & for more info!☺️💜
Happy Workout Wednesday friends.😉
