Current mess. Holding around 200. Another 10lbs of pure fat to add. At least the blurry pic hides the rolls of lard
Finally the stage shot of @slfitness.expo
thank you so much @slfitness.expo
for this wonderful platform for us to start of as physique athletes. Definitely the biggest stage and show I have stepped on so far. Great job guys!! It was a long prep and learnt so many things in terms of diet, training and especially the recovery and supplementation. Most importantly met so many good guys in the industry like @gayan323 @jawardziard
and many indeed great people with knowledge so much to learn!!
Once again it was my mom who supported me throughout with my meal preparation. She is the best ❤️. Can't forget to mention my baby girl @my_babygirl_ammu
who gave whole the confident in this world and stood by my side all the time with prayers 😘😘. Last but definitely not least my prep coach @ifbb_pro_celestin
a great human being than a good coach! Thanks alot coach ❤️

The road to 100kg per side hacks continues...
Here’s my PB from yesterday’s session, 80kg per side for 8 reps.
Hacks are quickly becoming one of my favourite movements. Really get a good connection and it’s nice to see the load going up now!
Hustle Around the Clock 💪🏻⏱
φ 4th attempt 🙄... Two weeks until we start the next phase, and focus on freak conditioning φ
I love the seated cable flies! The squeeze and muscle connection is spot on with this workout for me!
Different gym, different bathroom stall, same old pose...
On the plus side, lifts and weight are starting to go back up again. Sitting at about 198 this morning
How hard are you willing to work? Yes, we can tick every box. The food, the training programme, sleep, supplementation. But if you’re not willing to work hard, will it all work?
These are all things I totally understand you have to control, but you also HAVE to be able to work hard when you train.
To take yourself to places you’ve never been before, those reps that you’ve never done before, the sets that hurt more than anything; doing them, they’ll matter.
For me; the goal is to leave EVERY SESSION feeling like I couldn’t of gave any more, feeling like I took myself to the end of the world for every set.

Bulk coming to an end ☹️ 12 days left till prep👊💥💥.-
-“Thy shall get bigger and shredded af in 14 weeks”- William Shakespeare
❗️❗️Push day❗️❗️ Another typical chest and shoulders session really but just added a few variations into the excercises and show you different things you can do if your ever stuck or bored of your typical routine.
1️⃣ Narrow grip bench press- 4x9 reps. Still use this as my staple chest movement because of how messed up my body is😂. Still feel like i prefer this movement compared to a normal straight bar bench because it takes less strain off the shoulders and targets the chest more
2️⃣ Narrow grip bench press- 4x10 reps, dropset- 10 reps. Same movement as the first but lowering the weight and up ping the reps to get more blood into the chest and just fatigue it as much as possible.
3️⃣ Single arm lateral/side raises- 6x15 reps, dropset 10 reps. Usually stick with dumbell side raises but thought id alter it a bit, doing it unilaterally means you can target each individually rather than focusing on 2 at a time and the cable just adds the constant tension that you dont get with the dumbells.
4️⃣ Face pulls- 4x10, dropset 10 reps. Started doing this movement rather than rear delt flies because of my injury but still able to feel it as much, usually do this every pull day because most people dont think of even training their rear delts which makes up quite a bit of the overall shoulder.
Tough times don’t last, tough people do 💪🏻💜
With a strong mind, you can’t be stopped 🙌🏻
This combination will put your body over the edge and push your results to another level...Arms ..Abs ...Back and Legz..Dont accept anyone elses limitations..You were blessed to be great....Now show it
Made time to get in a quick lift tonight 😅. I was pretty sick yesterday and coached through it, but I was surprised that as the day went on, I started feeling better. And I was even more surprised that I actually felt decent during my lift! Now I’m back at home taking care of an adorable AF puppy 🥰🥰🥰 .
Workout tonight ⬇️⬇️⬇️
1️⃣Seated stretched cable face pulls
2️⃣Dynamic effort flat bench press with bands
3️⃣Medium grip loaded pull-ups
4️⃣Seated supinated dual handle low cable rows
5️⃣Chest supported incline bench dumbbell Y-T-I complex
New movements👊 -
Great Tuesday leg session as always. Tried out some new exercises today, first exercise shown is a variation of a stiff leg deadlift in which you use a band. The band throws your hips back meaning you get a much better contraction in your hamstrings, definitely a great exercise for hamstring growth.👍 -
Second exercise is a Dumbbell sissy squat this is a quad dominant exercise, your ankles are held into place which you then you do a squat but you will feel only your quads working through this movement as it eliminates all other muscle groups that you would usually feel working when doing a basic squat. This exercise is great for quad focus.👍
Here is my Deadlift PB. A top set of 170kgx6 after three sets of 160x6
I’m in no way saying this is impressive or good, but considering I started deadlifting about 5 months ago, I’m happy with this.
Form needs work, had some advice of @ahdj_fit
and it was what I already thought; that my hips shooting are up far too quickly compared to the rest of my body, but a PB is a PB💁🏼♂️
The reason for not deadlifting previously is I felt I wasn’t connecting with the movement, so preferred a rack pull. However, now deadlifts are up there with one of my favourite movements!
