I love doing posterior chain work...
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Here’s a classic hybrid that I use often as an accessory move to pull it all together.
💪🏾 Barbell Row/Deadlift. 5sets/8-10reps.
Gotta keep that back and hammies strong so I can carry you to the finish line bruh! #tuesday #arms #deadlift #instafit
This is the first core-focused workout I’ve done in some time! I’ve been avoiding ab training bc I know the bikini division isn’t looking for a 6 pack (not that yo girl has one right now 😂), so I didn’t want to develop any further in that area.
However - I do like having abs! So I’m going to start training them again (even weighted movements 😲). Disclaimer: training abs doesn’t give you a cool 6 pack but not eating like an ass will.
Workout (short, sweet, & effective):
Plank 60 sec
12 hanging leg raises
15 weighted cable crunches
10 decline sit ups
Start back at the top (little baby rest only)
I’m a fan of spinal flexion & extension during sit ups & crunches - just so ya know. However, my first few reps weren’t super, so pay closer attention to the others! 😜
SAVE & TAG me if you try it!🤘🏼

There seems to be confusion over these 2 words ...being lean or shredded is NOT the same thing. Everyone can get lean...but not everyone can get "shredded...peeled....ripped or diced basically its a whole new level of discipline and sacrifice that most people don't have or want to go to that level. 💪🏽🔥
What you are meant to have you will feel deeply in your heart ‼️
Don’t waste your time pushing yourself through something you don’t truly want.
Find what you TRULY want in life, and yes it may take everything you have. But how can you live your life knowing you didn’t exhaust all options for something you DEEPLY wanted...don’t go out like that..💯
Let’s talk GOALS for a quick second!
Think about some of the things you want to achieve in life, some of the goals you have, or just things on the inside you wish you could do/be.
NOW, think about what you’re currently doing, are you currently doing ANYTHING to work towards these goals?
If you answered no, then how do you expect to achieve these goals?!
Is it because you think they’re impossible, or too BIG of a goal?
TRUST ME when I say ANYONE can achieve ANYTHING.
Take your FIRST STEP towards achieving one of these goals TODAY!
What’s ONE thing you can do right NOW, that gets you just a tinyyyy bit closer?!
Small steps EVERY DAY achieve HUGE results!
TRUST ME, You will thank me later. ❤️❤️
Transformation Tuesday Post! 💪🏻
All 3 of these transformations occurred within 8 weeks (including my own). One of the major things in common between these 3 transformations is that we focused on health and not aesthetics. We focused on nutritional guidelines and training programs that made us feel better. The best part about the programs was that they were completed with quick workouts in the comfort of our own home! The funny thing is that when you start to focus on your health and how you feel, your body will change positively and you will also start to look better. -

Hamstrings can be a very stubborn muscle to bring up. I’ve found that when I mix up heavy squats, stiff-legged dead’s, and time under tension leg curls I get the best hamstring workouts. So make sure your mixing up your hamstring work with a nice variation of compound and isolation movements 🙌🏽

ready as it will be! 12 days!
Do you have BIG GOALS but don't know how to reach them? Do you have an idea of what you should be doing yet don't feel motivated enough to actually follow through?!
Do you feel like you never challenge yourself in the gym? Maybe you go on a cardio machine for 5 minutes, lift a few Dumbbells, do a few lunges and wander about like "Yaa okay I'm done now". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you feel like eating healthy and balanced is a chore?! You feel like it's impossible to go more than a few days at a time without totally indulging and then "ruining your progress?"
Do you feel FED UP that you just can't get your sh*t together in order to achieve what you want out of the Fitness aspect of your life?!
I've BEEN THERE!
AND GUESS WHAT!
Some days I'm STILL THERE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's days where I have that "Screw it" mentality. There's days where I'm like "Hmmmm challenging workout? "Yaaa Imma do that tomorrow!"
There is days where I feel like never stepping foot in the gym again!! (just kidding...I'm a drama queen😌) But you get what I'm saying! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you feel FED UP WITH YOUR SH*T then here's your sign! It's time to take control and take action!
Let me put it this way:
Time is going to pass whether you step your game up or not. You might as well make the most out of the present moment, and make the very BEST decisions you can with the current situation that you're in.
Instead of procrastinating, why don't you set up a plan of action!
First map out WHAT it is you want.
Figure out WHY you want it.
Lastly decide HOW you want to get there.
Get excited! And I mean REALLY excited!
Making progress is one of the greatest feelings ever - because NO ONE can put in the work for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You know that each step forward came from your dedication and your effort to improve.
You versus you. Always!
You got this babe 💪🏻💕
TODAY we on that grind 💓
✔️Walk the pup aka child
Now time to study && relax for the night 💓🙏🏽

I get asked a lot by my clients, family and friends what I love about personal training. The answer is never a short one as I truly LOVE and am PASSIONATE about what I do!
Let me list the many reasons why I LOVE my job (in no particular order!)… 1. I get to meet, interact with, and connect with many different clients everyday! It is so uplifting being a part of someone’s journey to a living a healthier lifestyle 🙂
2. I get to make positive changes in the lives of my clients and see their transformations over the weeks, months and years.
3. I can work as many (or as few) hours as I want, I tend to work long days (6am-9:30pm) but that is my choice because (again) I love what I do and want to help as many people as I can in a day
4. I train so many amazing people and establish very strong relationship with them. I have become so close with many of my clients that many of them have become good friends!
5. The ability to use my knowledge, experience, and love of fitness to help enrich somebody else’s life. I’ve had so many clients tell me their favorite part of the day was our session; what a fantastic feeling!
6. I look forward to going to work everyday! Not only do I have incredible clients to train everyday but fellow PTs and Gym goers are so epic to be around. We have a blast, no matter what time of day and who is doing what…we are positive, outgoing, active people and we all share a passion for fitness, I can’t think of a more positive and fun environment? Constant laughter and smiles.
7. I get to wear what ever clothes and trainers I like!
8. Being able to adapt and change my work when it suits me. For example, freeing up my time to, Developing and launch ReDiscipline.
Super exited to be able to make an impact to a wider audience anywhere in the world!
I think it is clear that I love what I do…how about you?? Are you in a rewarding career? If not, what is your dream job and what are you waiting for?

This is not your typical #transformationtuesday
I've been contemplating competing...A LOT since my last comp in April of last year. Every time I get a fire in me to look at show dates I think about all the things I won't be able to fully enjoy if I go into a prep. .
My last prep began just 1 month after I moved to Maui. Jake and I went out and adventured at least once a week and as my prep progressed, my energy levels depleted. I wasn't able to comfortably do certain hikes (I'd still do them but I'd feel cranky and exhausted afterwards). In order to even go on adventures I had to wake up at 5 to make sure I got my workout in first and then pack all my meal prepped foods for the day. Even going out to nice dinners was difficult. They had to be planned on my cheat day, I made sure to eat lightly throughout the day so I could indulge and I'd end up stuffing myself to the point that walking back to the car was painful (so of course, intimacy was out of the question for the night). And then there was my self confidence. Each week, I'd take my measurements, body fat and photos and each week I would feel like a failure. Yes I was progressing at a rapid rate but it was never enough. .
Now, I feel full of energy and even though there are activities we do that are difficult sometimes, they do not completely drain me anymore. I feel 100% ok skipping the gym to go for a hike or paddle boarding. Shit, I feel 100% ok with skipping the gym for movies and ice cream too! I'm able to go out on dates with my man any day of the week free of guilt and more importantly, free of binging. And my confidence? So much healthier but ever evolving. I love my body and would never want another because this is a body that I have worked for and that makes me proud. .
I still may compete again because I love to challenge myself to see what I am capable of but...it will be in a way that still allows me to enjoy this beautiful life I am so lucky to have. Until then, I am happy. .
I hope if you are considering competing, you realize that it could mean you sacrifice A LOT. If you aren't ready for that, then I'm sorry but you're not ready to be a competitor. 👈and that is OK!!
Collecting beautiful moments 💕

of client @apollo9096
dropping over 50 lbs. Since working with @you_fit_my_macros_so_i
she’s gained an incredible amount of strength while getting leaner. And her strength is still climbing!
You can’t make progress if you’re not putting in the work. Jennifer works hard hitting her macros accurately and consistently in the daileeeeee and never missed a training session. .
She’s looking to hit her 2nd Powerlifting Meet in November and wee shooting for a 400 lb squat, 270 bench, and 440+ deadlift. .
Nice job, Jennifer and keep kicking a$$! 💪🏻👊🏻 #teamtntfitness #iifym #powerlifting #weightlosstransformation
Have you ever seen someone go from #doyouevenlift

Had such an incredible time this week in Vegas at the Olympia! So proud of my athlete @jenniferdorie_ifbbpro
for her unbelievable accomplishments this year! Many great memories were made with friends, and I’m grateful to have met many new great people whom are now a part of my life! I can’t wait to do it again next year!
Ok I’ll get a new outfit now 😂
But Hold up, hold up before you stop reading. 🙌🏽 the last time I posted this outfit I got a massive response to my description. ☺️ I got so many questions asking what babes in business was and how I make an income online while changing peoples lives and health 🌱💕 I’m looking for 2-3 more #bossbabes

Real talk. Post show is hard. After placing 2nd at Worlds in 2016 to 4th last weekend at Worlds qualifier Pro International my ego got a giant slap in the face. I can’t even tell you the number of people who reached out to me leading up to the show telling me I was going to take it and crush it. I tried so hard to brush off those comments and remain neutral to an expected placing. While I NEVER go into a show expecting a specific placement there’s a little sliver of my heart that hopes for 1st. After walking away with a 4th place part of me feels like a failure. I’m trying hard to stay positive and just focus on improving for the next and lifting for myself right now cause it’s only up from here.
In my spare time I like to wear black and secure the people of @mscollinsmelb @phatfridaysmelb
😎 Personal trainer and security guard I don’t think it gets more cliche than that 😂
EXPECTAION VS REALITY
People need to really understand the “fitness” “fat loss” “muscle gain” journey.
That’s exactly what it is a journey it’s not a over night process and it’s definitely not going to be all plane sailing, there will be ⬆️ Ups and ⬇️ Downs. You will hit plateaus where you will stop losing fat, you will feel like giving up. Give it time and ensure you have the correct training routine and nutrition plans in place and stick with it.

Go into a calorie defecit and you will lose weight 👈 😁 its a different ball game if you want to look like a fitness model or a bodybuilder. That requires going into a surplus to build lean mass to look tight....alongside training to that specific goal. 💪🏽🔥
Something I picked up a couple of years ago I love using as a mass tricep builder is cable skull crushers. It works both the long and lateral head of the tricep. This allows you to have constant tension on the muscle and for me personally gives me no pain in any areas. You can also squeeze your core, glutes, legs, back and chest while doing eccentric loading. Try it out.
Looking for a quick, easy, AND spine friendly exercise to work those core muscles? -
The exercise you see here is the Straight Leg Sit Up for obvious reasons. While this exercise does involve a small amount of trunk flexion, it needs a larger amount of hip flexion making this a smaller alternative to standard sit up or crunches. -
The key for this exercise is for a slow descent. Aim for 6-10 seconds for lowering yourself on the ground. There should be no rocking or momentum.
Still too easy? Add a plate and extend your arms out. -

November 1st marks 4 years with #teamRTSF
.🖤 When I first came to @rippedtoshredz
I had come out of a competition and rebounded hard. I put on about 20lbs in a month. 😅 I was ignorant and just getting into the fitness industry and was crash dieted by a coach. I had been following one of Kalim’s clients for a while and constantly seeing her living a balanced, flexible lifestyle, but was absolutely SHREDDED. I wanted that. I wanted to be able to maintain my fitness goals while living life. It took me about 3 years, countless workouts, many tears and frustrations, tracking macros and plenty of lessons learned before getting there. But, we here fam.🙌🏼🙏🏼 I stand here eating 2,000+ calories a day, while maintain abs. I don’t stress about evenings out. I no longer have guilt or fear associated with food. And I don’t plan my life around my workouts. This didn’t happen overnight. I love you all, but our society as a whole needs to learn PATIENCE. And to be dedicated to a program longer than 4 weeks before quitting because you didn’t get the results you wanted in that time. I have been lifting for 5 years now. I have gone through many seasons of growth and change. I asked questions, but I NEVER doubted Kalim or his programming. I trusted him. And for the last year I’ve had the privilege of earning your trust and coaching some of YOU! I am fueled to pass on what I’ve learned through TeamRTSF because it has personally changed my life. I pray that I can have that effect on my coaching clients and all of you through this platform. Here’s to the next 4 years!💫🦋

Meet Sle.. she's my home girl and she believes in me.
People like her remind me that being patient.. kind.. and encouraging can make all the difference in someone's life.
CrossFit is intimidating for me. I am not good at it. Heck, on day one I busted open my chin LOL. But being a beginner isn't so hard when you have friends that are equivalent to rays of sunshine.
She is always right there making me laugh.. giving me a high five.. and telling me, "You go this!"
Thanks girl. You (and your friends) are the best. And y'all push me to BE MORE for others.
You could be the difference between someone quitting and someone sticking with it. To all of you who are encouraging like Salena.. thank you. 🙏🏼
