BEST CARB TO EAT...
Swipe ⬅️for more
I’m a big fan of sweet potatoes 🍠 it’s one of those super foods and carbohydrate sources that I consume on a regular basis in a given week. They have a great list of health benefits as they are packed with vitamins and minerals, fiber as well antioxidants. Low glycemic so they can keep you content and satisfied longer. Can be great for weight loss/fat loss as well as keeping you looking lean and jacked💪🏾
For me personally I find that I can eat them and always feel great and energized. No bloating or inflammation on the body like some foods can make you feel. Nowadays, more and more I find that some foods I just don’t do well with. But through self elimination and experimenting I know what foods make me feel crappy, fatigue, achy joints etc, even though it’s considered healthy and which foods make me feel great.
Always be willing to do some food eliminating if you always find yourself not feeling so great after eating certain foods. As you may just have an intolerance to it.

Lifting isn't always about hitting a PR each session.
You need a solid base to build your lifts. Dialling in technical elements under lighter loads is a key to success.
4x8 at 55% 1RM
Working with Red to build his bench press numbers up. Here we are JM pressing and trying to establish a better shoulder position throughout.
It's not uncommon for lifters to favour one side, but we definitely need some extra guidance when benching with Red to keep things even.
☑️Drop the shoulders
☑️Push your back into the bench
☑️Bend the bar
☑️Shoulder blades into your back pocket
A check in from one of my general population ladies who has PCOS. We've only worked together now for a short period of time and I'm very happy for her.
It's comments like this and watching these clients progress is why I'm concentrating on General Population clients in 2019 as i get so much satisfaction from it ( yes it has its stressful times but very much worth it)
Ensure when you are training that you are looking to explosively lift for maximum recruitment of muscle fibres. Submaximum lifts result in submaximum performance.
Hamstrings in particular can be an explosive and powerful force producer. The actions involved in sprinting highlight the need for strong, powerful and explosive training.
N.B there are times when we do need slower tempo lifts and movements.
Yes it's high. But 🤬 it's heavy.
10th set 260kg.
2 reps of 60/100/130/160/200/220/240/250/260/260kg
This is my second squat day for the week. Keeping impulse high, load on lower back low.

.....currently on a 2 week diet break then we push again and keep getting him leaner. 💪
Full disclosure...I am by obligation of my career choice, structured and linear-thinking when it comes to programming for my people (clients, athletes, friends). However, freedom of hopping off the beaten path and being random to dose the body with what it feels is where I am strongest. When a client comes in, I watch how they move, pay attention to what they say and feel and generally concoct a recipe of movements that will be a perfect combination of what they need and what their body wants. That being said, when I train myself, I do not have one single goal in mind. Most people are concerned with a goal and I’m a big fan of setting goals and accomplishing them, but to be honest I’ve never been motivated by anything other than challenging myself and having fun. There’s something about the challenge of accomplishing new skills, getting stronger and the freedom of doing what my body feels like doing on the fly that makes me feel extremely accomplished. If you know me, you know I am always unsure what my workout will be when I show up to the gym. I go completely by feel and I always mix up what my body needs with what my body wants. ———————————————————————
