Welcome back to campus everyone! Don’t fall into the common college-athlete trap that is the tweet. Don’t lie to yourself either and say you haven’t done this lol Your priorities are simple: 1) School 2) Athletics. Everything comes after that. Of course have your fun BUT be smart and stay safe 😎
Rear Delt Training💥 - When training the rear deltoid, control is everything. Given all the various musculature that attaches to the scapulae, it’s very easy for other musculature like the rhomboids/lower traps to dominate movements we are using to target to rear delts. It is for this reason, that technique and execution are paramount when training these muscles in particular.✅ - Here is a quick clip of me explaining my favorite way to train the rear deltoid using a machine.✅ - To see the full video, and a bonus tip, click the link in my bio!👌🏽👇🏼

I want to share with you my success but The only way to succeed is through failure. Here is me failing with 511lbs. What did I learn? Not to lift heavy on very little sleep. #mindpump #powerlifting #powerlifter #USAPowerlifting #usapl #uspa #deadlift #squat #bench #projectrock #fitness #bodybuilding #gym #strength #workout #training #strong #weightlifting #fitfam #power #fitnessmotivation #squats #motivation #strongman #muscle #gains #muscles #instafit #gymlife #verticaldiet
One of the biggest obstacles I run into when signing in a new client is cost of personal training. A common response is “it’s too expensive” or “ I can’t afford it”. Personal training does come with a cost, but is it TOO expensive? No. Ultimately what it comes down to is what we prioritize and value most. The average person spends $70/month on coffee, $250/month eating meals out and $150/month on alcohol. That’s roughly $500/month— that’s 2 sessions with a personal trainer every week! There are ways you can make it affordable. So what’s more valuable to you—the 3 days a week your eating out? Or bettering your health and fitness? . . . #personaltraining #value #money #fitness #lifestyle #nutrition #personaltrainer #workout #fitnessmotivation #strengthtraining #coach #fitlife #wellness #bootybuilding #progress #mindpump #muscle #instafit #fitspo #fitmom #momswholift #postpartumfitness #squat #deadlift #transformation #momlife #healthyliving #health #fitnessjourney #igfitmoms

Another week of @hasfit_official Home Athlete program complete💪🏻!! ✌🏻 rest days ahead and a whole week of new workouts waiting for me on Monday!! I cannot say this enough, the Hasfit programs are soo good!!

I am sending you all energy power with this move. Allow your mind to connect while exercising: That focus is far way more important that we could think. What is your move of the day?
Most people cut incorrectly. ⁉️ They go far too long 4+ weeks (why I like mini cuts and bulks) , neglect strength training, never reefed their bodies, and do too much cardio. ⬇️ Calories aren’t the only variable to a cut either! Increasing volume during training, or activity outside of the gym such as increasing your step count (NEAT) are effective and measurable ways to burn more calories instead of simply reducing intake. ⬇️ Okay, bye 👋🏻 #positivevibesonly #mindpump #mapsperformance #gains #back #upperbody #mobility #strong #flexible #mobil #teamruneverything #nodaysoff #getafterit #discipline #inspire #inpower #change #healthylifestyle #painfree #positivevibes #live #painfree #shoulderworkout #athlete #athletictraining #gymnastics #attack #moveon #2019 #fridaymotivation
THRUST HACK‼️: use the decline sit up for a more comfortable thrust! This is one lift I saw a significant weakness in when I first started working out post pregnancy. Which makes sense, because I pretty much eliminated hip thrusts while I was pregnant 🤰🏻. When I started them back up 6 weeks post pregnancy I was thrusting just the bar, maybe 65# total. 9 months later 185# is feeling good and strong 💪🏼 . . . QUES FOR HIP THRUST: ▪️Keep knees right over ankles ▪️Do not allow your back to arch at the bottom or top of the thrust ▪️Chin tucked the whole time ▪️When at the top of the movement, your body should look like a table top ▪️Drive through the heels, squeeze glutes🍑 . . . #hipthrust #glutes #bridges #fitness #lifestyle #nutrition #personaltrainer #workout #fitnessmotivation #strengthtraining #coach #fitlife #wellness #bootybuilding #progress #mindpump #muscle #instafit #fitspo #fitmom #momswholift #postpartumfitness #squat #deadlift #transformation #momlife #healthyliving #health #fitnessjourney #igfitmoms
The people you meet in your day to day interactions can have the most profound impact on your life. @timsbigheart is one of those people that I will always remember. . I met Tim yesterday at @therangecafe on Wyoming in Albuquerque when I took my best man to breakfast. We got to talking, and it turns out that Tim is having a big 33rd birthday bash the day after my wedding at @highanddrybrew on Sunday! . He expressed the warmest wishes for me and my wife-to-be for our wedding, and gave me the best hug ever! If you get a chance to receive one of his famous hugs, don't pass up the opportunity! . If you're looking for someone that will bring joy to your life with every interaction, go follow @timsbigheart on Instagram or Tim Harris on Facebook and be sure to wish him a happy birthday on Monday! .

Simple Ab Workout -- you’re gonna wanna save this one 🔥 . ✳️ Reverse Crunches - so many people perform these incorrectly so be SURE to read on! Your heels should be up close to your 🍑 throughout the ENTIRE movement. . Hold on to the bench for stability, and with a controlled motion curl your lower body up by squeezing your abs NOT YOUR HIP FLEXORS 👏🏼 If you’re swinging or kicking your legs up, you’re not doing it right! 🙅🏼‍♀️ . More control over the movement means that it’s more effective in the long run, so don’t be discouraged if it starts burning after only a few reps. IT SHOULD! 😜 . ✳️ Hanging Oblique Knee Raises - yet another one where hip flexors tend to dominate 😑 I love twisting to the side here (to get those obliques/side abs) working! A great cue for this is to try and get your ankles into your armpits 😜 Sounds ridiculous, but I promise you’ll feel the burn! . Once again, the slower and more controlled, the better! . ✳️ Static Plank - Do NOT let your 🍑 reach up toward the sky like I am in the beginning of this video! Your tailbone should be tucked under (like at the very very top of a deadlift) and your core should be squeezing! . The harder you squeeze your abs, the more effective this move will be! . I love this routine because I can do it at home, and you can too (as long as you have something to hang from 😊) I use it as a quick circuit -- do the first move for 8-12 reps, then the second for 8-12 reps, then hold a plank for about a minute, rest, and repeat 2 more times! . And like I said before, use your abs, NOT your hip flexors 👏🏼 And as always if you’re looking for more guidance, click the link in my bio 😊 Coaching spots are still available! 🔥 . . . . . #personaltrainer #legday #deadlift #squat #squats #gracefitguide #sweatwithkayla #girlswholift #legworkout #fitnessblogger #wellnessblogger #strongnotskinny #training #abs #strengthtraining #trainingforlife #shiftyourjanuary #functionalmovement #mobility #abworkout #gymshark #learntolift #howtolift #healthjourney #workoutideas #strengthfeed #mindpump #imperfectlypaigewellness
@408jmack . Pigeon split squat—— saw this movement and wanted to give it a try, but this is NOT a movement to jump into without the proper prerequisites. I have been increasing the mobility/resiliency of the hip capsule and now have greater control in the joint(mobility). It’s imperative that we are able to CONTROL and CONTRACT the musculature in and around the joint through the entire available range. #flexibility is not #mobility
Ending the week on another leg workout 🏋🏻‍♂️ - So my first full week back in the gym after vacation, I’ve learned what I already knew. I’m not eating ENOUGH 🍽 - I do so much walking and on top of my workout, 3,000 calories just isn’t enough! I’m starting to pour EVOO all over my food to try and up them though. I don’t wanna be that guy that eats a bunch of crap to get my calories up, so trying to do it the healthier way. - How do you guys get your calories up if you struggle to eat enough?
I’ve been riding the struggle bus hard this week for numerous reasons. All I can do is laugh at myself and keep a positive attitude towards it. This is my favorite workout from #mapssplit so far. It’s challenging in balance, new movements, and heavy weight. I have one more week to push this workout, and then things are changing. - - - #gymaddict #trainhard #weightlifting #igfitness #instafitness #workout #fitfriends #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #instafitness #gains #fitchick #gymrat #gymjunkie #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #fitlife #bodybuilding #getstrong #swolelife #getfit #health #healthy #powerlifting #thickfit #gymselfie #gains #fitlife #healthyliving #mindpump
REAL AS FUCK TIME. Most times when I post a meal it’s something healthy and most people do the same. Here’s my truth. At least once a week I have a moment of weakness and eat crap food. Do I feel guilty or ashamed about it???? Fuck no!!! I’m not perfect and neither is my diet. It’s called balance and that’s what I call healthy. #mindpump #powerlifting #powerlifter #USAPowerlifting #usapl #uspa #deadlift #squat #bench #projectrock #fitness #bodybuilding #gym #strength #workout #training #strong #weightlifting #fitfam #power #fitnessmotivation #squats #motivation #strongman #muscle #gains #muscles #instafit #gymlife #verticaldiet
06:05 AM — when does your day start? Stretching ✅ trigger session ✅ breakfast ✅ — dayshift here I come! #wakeupearly #6amclub #mindpump #orangefit #malenurse
*** Poor quality picture, but decent quality words ⬇️⬇️ *** • • I’ve been listening to @mindpumpmedia for the last couple years and I still think that trigger sessions are one of the greatest things they have introduced me too. ⬇️ Trigger sessions, what are they? ▶️They are generally done 2-3 times throughout the day (particularly on off days) ▶️basically a quick “pump” workout that lasts 6-10 minutes ▶️use a resistance band, light weights, or body weight. ▶️focusing on full range of motion ▶️pick exercises in area of weakness (although anabolic signal is sent throughout whole body) • • These quick workouts not only get blood to the muscles assisting in recovery, it is said these sessions also send an anabolic signal out to the rest of the body. Leading to the idea that our bodies are in anabolic mode more often, leading to more muscle growth. For me, I do notice a huge difference in my performance, growth, and recovery when I am doing these sessions consistently. • Our bodies are fascinating and we can first hand control variables and watch our bodies change before our eyes! We are all capable of being scientists! This is something you can add to your day and track, and see the results for yourself. Science is fun, especially when it involves our own bodies! #science #mindpump
Me taking a douchey pic, but SIDEWAYS!! So my training lately (a lot of you may know this idk if I’m being a broken record) revolves around the way Mind Pump programs are built where I do 3 full body lifts per week and then I can do focus sessions and some mobility or cardio in between. I’m haven’t really been doing the focus sessions and most definitely haven’t been doing cardio. The 3-4 lifts I get in per week have been working out just fine and I’m pretty happy about my progress. I do feel weird sometimes about not being in the gym every single day, because I was for like 5 years, but I think this is probably the best I’ve ever looked, maybe in general but definitely at this weight. Workin smarter, not 👏🏼harder 👏🏼 . . . #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #workout #workoutmotivation #fitspo #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #fitfam #fitgirl #mindpump #deadlifts #legday #mindpumpmafia #lululemon #bodybuilding #fit #fitchick #getfit #stayfit #gymtime #gymlife #gymmotivation #gymflow
Two exercises guaranteed to put mass on your biceps! I struggled to put mass on my arms when I first started training them, mostly because I was destroying them, and not allowing them to adapt I do half the work I used to on my arms now and my results have been so much better! Your biceps get a ton of stimulation when doing any pulling motion, so about every back exercise! I always end my pull days with 2-3 bicep moves for 8-12 sets of work, 2x a week Some type of barbell/dumbbell curl with my arms right by my side like you see in the first video! And another that is more isolation with my elbows either in front or behind my body to work the different heads of the bicep. You can’t specifically target one head at a time but when your elbows are behind you, your long head is more isolated, and the short when they’re in front of you! Barbell or Dumbbell curls allow you to overload the muscle with the most stress(weight) and then I move into more isolation and focus on the squeeze! As long as you’re fueling your body correctly you’ll see the results you’re looking for! Give it a try😤 #everydayisarmday #curlsforthegirls #armday #biceps #fitnessiq #fitnessinfo #biggerarms #mapssplit #mindpump #gymshark #gainz #gaining #shreds #veins #vasky #ltfitness #barbellcurls #pullday
The hips initiate the swing NOT the hands ‼️ _ There are many cues hitting coaches use to try to make things simpler for hitters. But it’s important to understand the difference between FEEL vs. REAL ✅ _ “Throw your hands to the ball”, a common old-school hitting cue used by so many coaches. This is a FEEL cue but not a REAL one. I dislike this cue bc it does a horrible job explaining what’s actually going on in a swing. BUT for some hitters it helps them feel their swing better during the movement even though it’s not exactly what’s going on. So if coaches are telling you to do it, ask them why and how it’s going to apply. If they don’t have a good answer...then it’s probably best to not listen to them 🚫 _ Any cue is fine as long as there is a clear indication as to why it’s being used and what is actually happening. But if you want to dive deep into your individual biomechanics and learn how to maximize your potential...you want to lean towards using hitting cues for yourself that are directly applicable to efficient movement patterns 🏌🏽‍♂️ _ Transfer of energy begins with the hips! Even though everyone moves differently...there’s always common themes that should be applied with everyone. _ For all things hitting follow @coachmcruz 👊🏼
Pre- gym shhhnack 🥳 #letsgetthisglutenfreebread ✊🏼😤 But really tho... I took a bite and I’m like....🤯 this is good. So in case you couldn’t tell what anything is lol • half an avocado 🥑 salt n’ peppa • 1 slice #traderjoes gluten free bread (11 carbs!) • about 3 or 4 celery sticks (stalks?

In a world where fat has been named an enemy of our beloved bodies it's time to set things straight! We've been told for the longest time to eat less fat, this has resulted in us eating more sugar whether we realise it or not. Fat free products are laden with sugars and sweetners which cause us to gain fat anyway plus have a whole host of other bad effects for us. In turn our bodies are no longer functioning correctly, why? FAT regulates hormones which control basically everything our body does! It also promotes brain function which guards against brain diseases which effect so many today. So here I am giving you permission to start eating fat again in moderation ofcourse. Fat a balanced healthy diet! The word balanced includes fats! ....Enjoy! Benefits of fat; Proper hormone function, Cell membrane health, Brain function, Nutrient absorption, Digestion, Energy production, Source of multiple micronutrients, Insulation FAT Foods Avocados, avacado oil, eggs, meat, fish, olive oil in salad and veggies, Butter, Ghee, Mct oil, Yoghurt Dark choc #gymlife #mindpump #healthylifestyle #dreambody #gymlife #lift #fitlife #loveyourbody #gymrat #onlinetrainer #coach #fat #eatfat #fitnessfuel #gymlife 💪 #fatisfuel #ketosis #keto #ketodiet #eatfatburnfat

Let’s talk about crabs 🦀 . Yeah, you heard me 😜 . Did you know that you don’t have to put a lid on a bucket full of crabs? That’s because if one of the crabs tries to climb up the side of the bucket to escape, the other crabs grab at it and pull it back down. . When you start up a new routine to better yourself (fitness, wellness, nutrition, whatever!), you may find your friends and family members acting like CRABS 😑 . “Oh sure, you can make time to go to the gym three times a week, but JUST WAIT until you’re older and can’t get up as early.” . “Oh sure, you have time to make nutritious meals, but JUST WAIT until you have kids and you stop at McDonald’s on the way home every day.” . Now it’s true that you can’t choose your family, but I’m challenging you to stand up to them. I’m challenging you to do what’s best for YOU, what YOU think is right for you, no matter what they say 👏🏼 . I’m also challenging you to find and nourish relationships that LIFT YOU UP ❤️ This is my favorite picture from 2018. Not because my boyfriend and I look amazing, but because when I look at it, I remember how encouraging and helpful and positive he ALWAYS is about anything and everything I pursue. ❤️ . Health INCLUDES healthy relationships -- it’s not all just food and exercise. Build relationships that lift you up, not ones that tear you down 😊 . Tag someone who lifts you up down below 👇🏼 .

😉FREE MOVEMENT ASSESSMENTS & WARM UP DRILLS 👇🏻. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My idea of an optimal warm up is broken into two segments of intent: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1 - Minimize risk of injury. 2 - Maximize loading capacity of following lifts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Segment 1 - Minimize Risk Of Injury ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Following the same principle of creating specific intention, you’ll see injury mitigation can still be quite general - meaning you must further specify where injury is most likely to occur to yourself by answering two questions: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1 - Which area(s) of the body will I be experiencing the most stress within the current training session? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2 - Which area(s) of the body do I commonly experience pain &/or excessive tightness on a consistent basis? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Answering these will not only direct you toward which exercises/movements to include inside your warm up, but also ensure proper implementation of strength training as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For example, if you experience excessive inflammation & impingement of the shoulders, favorable strength training application will include more pulling movements/exercises than pushing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read more & gain access to the free movement assessments & warm up drills by clicking the link in my bio 👊🏻. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lifestyleoptimizationacademy #throughme #orderofman #ironcouncil #mindpump #strengthcoach #movementcoach #mobilitycoach #nutritioncoach #mindsetcoach #healthcoach
I have to be honest. Push workouts are not my favorite, especially single arm/dumbbell work. Partner that with a bum elbow (I got roped into arm wrestling a kid, and now it hurts.) and today was not fun. However, beside the pain issue, I know it’s so important to work on what I don’t enjoy doing bc it usually means it’s a weak point for me, and I want to turn weaknesses into strengths. - - - #gymaddict #trainhard #weightlifting #igfitness #instafitness #workout #fitfriends #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #instafitness #gains #fitchick #gymrat #gymjunkie #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #fitlife #bodybuilding #getstrong #swolelife #getfit #health #healthy #powerlifting #thickfit #gymselfie #gains #fitlife #healthyliving #mindpump

Pretty awesome podcast! I've learned I don't have to kill myself during every workout! I've slowed down, focus on form, rest more between sets, and I have an emphasis on mobility and flexibility; which is a perfect combination and workout for MY lifestyle. I feel pretty damn good since I've altogether slowed down. Slowing down has also greatly improved managing my anxiety! #mindpump #mindpumpmafia #mindpumpmedia #mindpumpradio @mindpumpsal @mindpumpadam @mindpumpjustin
Plyometric training is not the same thing that chick at your gym in the lulu calls “PLYO”. There is a big freaking difference. - So big in fact, I put together a little article for ya on it - link in my bio✅🙏🏽
Is one of your goals to do a pull-up? Besides the traditional rows, pull downs, etc. these are some other exercises to help improve your pull-up game. ▪️TRX Bridge Rows: start lying on the ground underneath the straps with your arms extended. Lift your hips into a bridge, and use your back and arms to pull your chest up to the hands. If you don’t have a TRX you can use a smith machine set up at desired height. ▪️Scapular Pull-ups: isolate the shoulder blades in this exercise. Retract the shoulders (pulling them back towards the spine) and then depress them (pulling them down). This should always be the first action of the shoulder blades before you use your lats and arms to do a pull-up. . . . #pullups #trx #scapula #movement #row #back #shoulders #fitness #lifestyle #nutrition #personaltrainer #workout #fitnessmotivation #strengthtraining #coach #fitlife #wellness #progress #mindpump #muscle #instafit #fitspo #fitmom #momswholift #postpartumfitness #transformation #momlife #health #igfitmoms #workoutwednesday
What I’m leaving in 2018 👇🏼 . ✳️ my fear of “failing” my loved ones and myself . ✳️ my old IG handle 🙃 . ✳️ the idea that I’m anything LESS than ENOUGH 👏🏼 . Fact of the matter is, life is SHORT. Like, incredibly so. And I say that not to scare you, but to really work you up. . If life is so short, why the hell are you spending time doing anything OTHER than what you really want? . If life is so short, why are you constantly telling yourself that you’ll start tomorrow. Or next week. Or next month. What if there ISN’T a next day/week/month? Would you be content with how you lived your life? 🤔 . These are hard questions, I know, but I’m challenging you to face them head on 🔥 . For the last few months, I’ve been sabotaging myself. I’ve been afraid to reach out & grow my coaching business. I thought that I didn’t know enough, that I wasn’t ready enough, that I wasn’t enough -- but that’s SO NOT TRUE. . So yesterday I decided to say “what the hell” and whatdya know, I’m now able to start training clients at my gym ( @ffpgh ) 💪🏼 . I’m done telling myself that I’m not enough and that I don’t deserve to succeed. 👏🏼 . So if you’ve been putting off making changes to your health and fitness routines, PLEASE reach out. 😁 You can either send me a DM or head to the link in my bio to sign up for a FREE 15 minute consultation for 1:1 fitness and health coaching with me 💕 . And remember -- you ARE enough, and you DO have the right to do what makes you feel your healthiest and best ❤️ . . . . . #personaltrainer #legday #deadlift #squat #squats #gracefitguide #sweatwithkayla #girlswholift #legworkout #fitnessblogger #wellnessblogger #strongnotskinny #training #abs #strengthtraining #trainingforlife #shiftyourjanuary #functionalmovement #mobility #exercisetips #gymshark #learntolift #howtolift #dumbbells #healthjourney #workoutideas #strengthfeed #mindpump #imperfectlypaigewellness

The #CossackSquat 🍑 One exercise that is underappreciated-Try these if you want to: a.) improve your hip range of motion b.) strengthen your core c.) sculpt your legs and glutes! Try these as a primer before your next leg day! Perform 2-3 sets for 30-60 seconds each set. Start out without any weight and work your way to a bar if you feel up to it! ▫️ *Mind the quality, recorded this on my camcorder and had to transfer the tape from the VHS to my phone🥔📲* ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #squatting #squatchallenge #rangeofmotion #flexibility #flexibilitytraining #mobilitytraining #mobilitywod #hipmobility #coreexercises #coreworkouts #corestrength #coretraining #cossack #completenutrition #squatday #squatspo #squatbooty #spiderman #peterparker #superman #legday #legdayworkout #legdaymotivation #mindpump #selfimprovement

Workout Wednesday Proceed with caution🤮 Swipe left for the full workout - 30-60 seconds rest 1️⃣Barbell Squats: 4x15-20 Always start off the workout with your heavy compounds to get the most out of your workout! - 2️⃣Backstep Lunges:3x10-12(each leg) - 3️⃣Lying Leg Curl: 3x15-20 Moving into more isolation here! This is where you’ll need the wheelchair 😂 - 4️⃣DB Goblet Squat:3 AMRAP DROP SET Choosing a weight I can get 10-15 reps until form breaks down, immediately dropping the weight and shooting for failure within 6-10 reps, and then a final drop for 6-10 more reps - 5️⃣Standing Calf Raise:4x15-20. Doing first four sets straight, and then an AMRAP drop set the same way as mentioned above! - Give this workout a try! Your legs will thank you later, but it’ll take a minute for the pain to wear off😛
I’m glad you can’t tell how much I was shaking trying to keep my balance lol - Lunges are slowly becoming my favorite - they suck, but since I’ve NEVER done them consistently, I see progress very quickly. - This is why it’s important that when exercising, practice the things you’re not good at - those exercises will likely bring the biggest change! - For me, those are incline press, front squats, lunges and pendlay rows. All variations for the more standard movements. We’ll see what 12 weeks of this does!
I still was able to increase weight with a tweaked back! Was this smart? No. But I was too hard headed to take a step back. It turned out ok, and I had no pain while lifting, but my other lifts suffered just a little bit. - - - #gymaddict #trainhard #weightlifting #igfitness #instafitness #workout #fitfriends #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #instafitness #gains #fitchick #gymrat #gymjunkie #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #fitlife #bodybuilding #getstrong #swolelife #getfit #health #healthy #powerlifting #thickfit #gymselfie #gains #fitlife #healthyliving #mindpump
Working out,specially cardio doesn't need to be complicated, you don't need to force yourself to go on a treadmill for an hour or go to the gym and jump on a cardio machine and kill yourself..I personally don't particularly like cardio,I love weight training and do it 5/6 days a week and do some HIIT here and there,but I try to be consistent with my NEAT,moving during the day as much as I can and I love my evening walks...walking is one of the best type of cardio you can do and be consistent with...if you go with your partner its the best time to have an uninterrupted conversation with no technology distractions...if you go on your own its the best time to listen to podcast,audio book or something you really like...I always listen to my favourite podcast @mindpumpmedia ,and it feels like I have company (@mindpumpsal @mindpumpadam @mindpumpjustin 😉)...you get some fresh air,vit D and if you are lucky to live somewhere beautiful like where I live you get to bind with nature too!🚶‍♀️🌻🌳🌞🦅🦆 #cardio #walking #nature #hatecardio #mindpump #podcast #australia #beautifulnature #workingout #beingactive #lake #northlakes #outdoor #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #walkway #nogymneeded #beautifulqueensland #beautifulbrisbane #northlakesgolfcourse
A staple exercise for strong shoulders. Bottoms up kettlebell press is not only great for shoulders, but having to squeeze the handle as tight as possible to keep the bell inverted builds tremendously strong hands. I’m using a 45 lbs kettlebell. Is this what heart disease from too much meat looks like @shawnbaker1967 😜 #omad #carnivore #carnivorediet #meatheals #zerocarbhighsex #steak #newyear ——————————————————————————— #eatfitnola #onnit #hustle #nola #fitness #vegan #joerogan #fasting #downtownla #diet #psychedelic #neworleans #mindpump #tech #nola #waronsugar #invest #nutrition #startup #jordanpeterson #zerocarb #medicine #intermittent fasting #2019
I can honestly say that I’ve waited YEARS (not a lot of them, but plural nonetheless) for this interview. @mountaindog1 and @mindpumpmedia are easily the two resources that I most often recommend to people who want honest, accurate information about the world of fitness and bodybuilding. I’ve listened to Mind Pump since the premier of their first episode back in early 2015 and have been a member of the Mountain Dog Diet website for about six years, so it was cool as hell to hear these two worlds collide. 🌎💥🌎 As usual, John’s candor regarding the reality of the bodybuilding landscape is both refreshing and interesting, and Adam, Sal and Justin do a solid job of hitting John with some unique questions that I’ve never heard him address before. Fingers crossed that the next MP/MD mash-up dives into John’s business acumen and his subsequent Forbes article... because that’s a pretty boss accomplishment that few in the fitness space can claim. 📰💯 Don’t sleep on this episode - listening to it will probably add a few pounds of brain muscle. 🧠💪🏻 #MindPump #MountainDogTraining #GrainTrain #RawFitnessTruth #MeetingOfTheMinds #BrainGains
For the longest Time I had no rear delts. I was totally front delt dominate. I’m finally starting to make some progress In that direction. The way I did it is I do two back days a week. Every backday I do two exercises that primarily target the rear delts. Mainly rear delt fly on chest fly machine and supported bench reverse fly. If you have weak points make them a priority in your routine! #bodybuilding #delts #lats #vtaper #bangenergy #kagedmuscle #priorities #npc #npcphysique #nasmcertified #nasm #nasmcpt #fit #italian #beardgang #instafit #fitness #mindpump #bulking #backday #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #gains #biceps #hairy #john316 #ohio
Consisting of the brain and spinal cord the central nervous system (CNS) is clearly an extremely important part of everyday human function. _ CNS function is simply the spinal cord relaying information up to the brain through spinal tracts to the thalamus & ultimately to the cortex. Aside from sending sensory & motor signals to the cortex, the thalamus helps regulate consciousness, sleep, & alertness. The cerebral cortex is involved with memory, attention, perception, awareness, thought, language & consciousness as well. The CNS is the delivery system for what the peripheral nervous system (PNS) senses. _ For the functions mentioned above, it is clear to see why we would want our CNS to be firing on all cylinders. But how do we achieve this? _ Like our muscles, our CNS can adapt to a stimulus we send it. For better or for worse. Via resistance training this can be achieved by the intensity & frequency of our workouts. Heavier loads will send the loudest signal to the CNS, if overdone, can disrupt its ability to process efficiently. But if done progressively & responsibly can help your CNS learn how to respond to stressors more effectively. 💪🏽 _ Managing your STRESS is super important here. Being constantly over-tired, swamped, and stressed will also lead to an inefficient CNS. Stress can come from many things. Our jobs, lack of sleep, fights with significant others, bad diets, etc. This is where everyone should start when it comes to performing better in all aspects of life. Drink more water, eat better food, get more sleep, and love more often. Take your body from a sympathetic to a parasympathetic state. Nothing wrong with some meditation and optimism. It can go a long way in making your CNS perform better. 🙇‍♂️ _ Next Post: Peripheral Nervous System 🧬 _ Tag your teammates/friends and share these posts to help spread good information and keep the progress going ‼️ _ For quality free content follow @coachmcruz 👊🏼
This isn’t the #10yearchallenge I’ll have to dig deep into the fat boy files for that one! - Damn it’s crazy how much you can change in one years time!!!

What are you doing this year to make sure you’re in a better spot next year at this time? #transformationtuesday #transformation #tiddies #buildachestfucktherest #gainz
"Read as little as possible of literary criticism- such things are either partisan opinions, which have become petrified and meaningless, hardened and empty of life,or else they are just clever word-games, in which one view wins today, and tomorrow the opposite view. Works of Art are of an infinite solitude, and no means of approach is so useless as criticism.  Only love can touch and hold them and be fair to them. Always trust yourself and your own feeling, as opposed to argumentations, discussions,or introductions of that sort; if it turns out that you are wrong, then the natural growth of your inner life will eventually guide you to other insights. Allow your judgements their own silent, undisturbed development, which, like all progress, must come from deep within and cannot be forced or hastened. Everything is gestation and then birthing. To let each impression and each embryo of a feeling come to completion, entirely in itself, in the dark, in the unsayable, the unconscious, beyond the reach of one's own understanding, and with deep humility and patience to wait for the hour when a new clarity is born: this is along is what it means to live as an artist: in understanding as in creating. In this there is no measuring with time, a year doesnt matter, and ten years are nothing. Being an artist means: not numbering and counting, but ripening like a tree, which doesn't force its sap,and stands confidently in the storms of spring,not afraid that afterward summer may not come. It does come. But it comes only to those who are patient, who are there as if eternity lay before them,so unconcernedly silent and vast." Rainer Maria Rilke.
