21 months later... 👇
The picture on the left is a picture of me during the DARKEST days of my entire. This is my origin story... 👇
On the right is 21 months after God healed me and gave me the ability and opportunity to start working out and living life again. 🔥
Responsibility This word is comprised of two words. "Response" and "able". The meaning of this word is what I believe EVERY human being in the world has... 👇
Responsibility means being "response" "able". It really means having the ability to respond. Why does this matter for you? 👇
This matters to YOU because if you are living, walking, and breathing you are RESPONSE ABLE! You have the ABILITY to RESPOND! 💯
It is your DUTY to use your ABILITIES to RESPOND in life! I'm talking about all areas of life. If you see someone getting bullied or picked on, STAND UP FOR WHAT'S RIGHT and take ACTION! Utizile your abilities and RESPOND to the situation! Be RESPONSIBLE and TAKE THE BULLY OUT! 💥
Show no mercy to bullies. Give them what they deserve and strike FAST and hit HARD. Take them OUT. Don't hold back. Do the RIGHT thing and don't let injustice reign. 💪
I challange you today to take RESPONSIBILITY of your life! Become the "Superhero" of your own life! 💯
If you are blessed enough to be able to walk, GO TO THE GYM! Be RESPONSIBLE and use your ABILITY to RESPOND to take action and build the body and life of your DREAMS! 🏆
I did it. You can do it too 👊
Comment down below "I'm RESPONSIBLE 💪" if you agree 💯 Also, please tag TWO friends who NEED to hear this message. 🙏
God bless and become the "Superhero" of your life! 💪🔥💯 🏆

Sometimes God has a bigger plan...
Was in beast mode today this was 385lbs and it was too easy I hit 405 but the camera fell so I didn’t get it.
Knee is getting better by the day as u can see.
It honestly looks like I’m on steroids in this picture buttttt oh well🙃🤷🏽♂️... anyways, I get a lot of questions from friends and followers of how to lose weight and get down to a shredded physique. And in order to do that, it’s not so much about working out as it is to focus on nutrition 🥘. Eating in a caloric deficit while consuming enough protein (at least 1 gram per pound of body weight) is the only way to lose fat while keeping the muscle you have👊🏽. Even if you’re eating salad and chicken for every meal with no carbs, but you’re eating 4,000 calories of salad and chicken, you will not be losing weight. It’s all about being in that deficit!💯 hope you all are having a great day, let me know what your favorite food is down below👇🏽
This is a really cool movement performed by @tilly_claire
it requires a huge amount of coordination and focus. It’s a lot harder then it looks but also a really fun complex movement you can throw in to test yourself.
You’re able to work your shoulders, legs, core and balance!
Don’t settle for average. Every time you put your feet on the floor when your waking up you should have one singular goal in mind... to be better. Aspire for greatness, and don’t settle for less.
BACK at it👀😂
I’ve been challenging myself as of lately to really get the most out of my sessions:
Rep range is 12-15 (15 is the target)
Using moderately heavy weight while
still squeezing the targeted muscle
3-4 sets for each movement
A thick, dense back wins championships so lifting heavy (not too heavy) is essential for back growth.
A good way to end your back workouts are doing pull-ups, try and get 15 reps unassisted for about 2 sets (rest for a minute in between each set)
Practiced this after a chest and tris sesh today. Not quite there yet imo but definitely improving.
WHY I START EVERY DIET WITH NO CARDIO 🚫🚫🚫
You simply don’t need it for the initial weight loss. Fat and water weight drops easily at first from diet alone🤷🏻♂️ Save it for later when your progress stalls.
Fat loss is caused by a caloric deficit. Take in less calories (food) than you expend (daily energy expenditure/activity level/calories burnt) and you will lose fat. so by simply being in a deficit and eating less food you can lose weight without adding a whole bunch of cardio and burning yourself out early on ☑️
NOW, cardio is VERY important for general health and performance. So when I say “no cardio” I mean just a minimal amount for maintenance. Not regimented and scheduled and calculated (ie- 300 cals cardio or 25-30 minutes 4x a week) 🚴🏼♂️
When my weight loss starts stalling (as it generally does 3 weeks in usually) THEN instead of LOWERING calories (because I like eating food- who doesn’t?) I’d rather UP my activity level to offset the equation rather than take away calories, and get less nutrients etc 🍳
TAKEAWAY: You don’t need to do a bunch of cardio immediately to lose weight. Fix your diet, watch the pounds drop, then add in more and more to keep your pace of weight loss 👍🏻

▪️August 2016 🆚 January 2019 ▪️ SWIPE <-- Figured I would do another #transformationtuesday
since I stumbled on this picture from 2016, when I was lifting for about a year.
What I want to show with those pictures is that all it takes for progress is: Time, Dedication & passion. Don't wait for the right time and change the things you don't like right now. It might be too late before you know.
Take your time, be dedicated and rule #1
Love what you do!
Goodnight and tommorow morning is a fresh start ❤️😴
CAFFEINE // HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU HAVE??
👉 Preworkouts & Coffee are likely the most common sources of caffeine if you’re a bodybuilder, and while some supplements include 100mg, others include upwards of 250mg, increasing your caffeine intake to what could be considered dangerous 🔥🔥🔥
Up to 400mg of caffeine a day for a healthy adult seems to be the normal maximum that should be consumed, but even this much taken without sufficient chunking throughout the day could hurt your body and even cause death 😈, which is why it’s best to have smaller amounts spread out in the day.
In addition, the benefits of caffeine seem to be maxed out around 200mg, and taking more has little/no additional benefits for the majority of us 👻
⏰ Timing - Try having caffeine an hour before a workout, as it peaks in your bloodstream around 60-90 min after consumption. Keep in mind that caffeine’s long half life means that it will stay in your body for longer (Six hour half life) and could affect sleep if you take it too late.
Make sure to be safe with how much caffeine you have, and spread it out in the day to avoid any harm! 💪
