Day 1 done. I hate mondays but leg day always makes it better. #1stphorm
Got called out by my dood @wwalker4
💪🏼 The gym doesn’t know what time you show up as long as you show up and put the work in ☝🏼 Today’s workout brought to you by @maxhypetraining
Combination of push and pull exercises. Here I am doing 3 sets of 10 at the machine shoulder press. I like this machine because of the muscle kind connection I get
Building brick by brick...
When it looks to pretty to eat🌶
Our all new chipotle lime chicken with spicy rice and roasted bell peppers🤪
Progress is at a snail's pace, but I'll take what I can get!
I'm just really proud of myself for being consistent, drinking a lot of water, and not giving into cravings.
My abs want to show off so bad, but my fat is hogging the limelight😫
and I hit some late night legs.
Time to get back on the gains train.
So I don’t brag enough on this guy but he is literally my rock and my biggest supporter. He is such a hard working person and his work ethic and attitude is so contagious. —
He was by my side the whole time when I was sick and in the hospital. He helped me get my strength back and also helped me learn to walk again. He was always by my side during physical therapy and always encouraging and motivating me. I love this man so much, he is truly the best thing that has happened to me. ❤️😍😘
He is a deputy and lives to serve others. He is focused on being fit and healthy not just for his line of work but for his own health as well. Go give him a follow he is always posting something motivational or funny. 🏋🏼♀️💪🏻❤️😍

Leaning out for this off season! 💪🏻
First full week into the new diet and training program and feeling good! Down 1lb already and hoping this downward trend sticks around the next couple of weeks. Consistency is key 🔑 to seeing the results you want and 90% of it happens in the kitchen. ⠀
You can have the “perfect” workouts all week long but if your diet isn’t in check you’re not going to see the results you want.
Happy Monday! Let’s keep the week going strong.💪🏻
‼️Body Composition Update‼️
Yes you read that correctly, I’m at 14% body fat 😳. No, it’s not healthy for me to maintain that. At the end of August, I started at 15.5% body fat when I started taking oly lifting more seriously. Let’s be real, I knew the results. I knew my body fat would descend since my body was under progressive overload 6 days a week for hours a day. Skeletal muscle mass went from 51 to 53 🔥. My weight at the start was 109lbs, but that was done in the morning, and this test was done Saturday afternoon after 1 gallon of water & 3 meals in. I’m amazed at the results in my training & strength, but I’m sooo ready to turn back some after my competition to put some body fat back on and add some kilos to my lifts 💪🏼. .
PS: carbs make you lose weight 😉 .

This is how I felt today and well maybe yesterday too. I woke up with two zits today, felt like I was going to die during CrossFit, had a shitty hair day, struggled to keep my eyes open throughout the day, felt like I could cry and scream at the same time at least 3 times and was hangry at least 5. •
I almost didn’t write this. But the truth is, if I had a funky day... chances are one of you did too. It wasn’t a bad day, just a overage of hormones, emotions and exhaustion. I’m grateful it’s just about bedtime. I still won my day and got what I needed to done, I’m still grateful for all the beautiful things around me, all that I’m building, for all of you... sometimes shit is just wanky. •
Gotta shake it off and do better tomorrow. Keep looking and pushing forward and do better every single day.
Oh and I’m hosting girls night this Friday night. DM for details. Be there or be square. 🖤

So, I posted last week that I was starting my meal plan that trainer @daveoro
, with We Fit bootcamp and 1st Phorm Legionnaire, made for me. Sunday mornings are my weigh in day and I am down 7 lb's in the first week. Now, I know that sounds like a lot, but I usually lose anywhere from 4 to 6 lb's in the first week on his meal plan. I also know that my #optigreens50
and my @1stphorm
Level-1 shakes have really helped. I will probably lose anywhere from 1 to 3 pounds a week from now on. I know from first-hand experience, if you do these meal plans 100%, you will see great results! I will continue to keep you all posted, you all are my accountability😁😀🙌💪💪💪 #healthyliving #iam1stphorm #1stphorm #1stphormphamily #1stphormlife
This is without words the best Motivation any day! Repost @mrfrisella
You want to win?
You want to make an impact?
You want to change the world?
It’s actually more simple than you may think.
Understand, simple does not mean easy it just means it’s more basic than you think.
I’ll give you the simple recipe.
Stand for something and don’t budge.
Find good people who believe in what you stand for.
Raise your standards by SHOWING them how it’s done.
Hold them fiercely accountable for their actions to your standards until they take ownership of the standard.
When it’s working, they will start to hold each other to the standard because they not only believe but they take great pride and ownership in the mission.
If this recipe doesn’t work... look in the mirror.
You either don’t stand for something that people will follow you for... or your leadership skills don’t cultivate individuals want to be better. .
Lead by example.
holding each other fiercely accountable.
= recipe for success. .

☀️ R U N H A P P Y☀️ Are you happy? Are you doing what makes your soul smile? Are you THRIVING or are you just living, and going through the motions? ...
The goals you want to accomplish- physically, at work, in school, in your relationships, and all areas of your life- don’t happen by sitting around wishing and waiting. You have to get off your ass and CHASE them! Stop waiting, stop wishing. If you’re too comfortable, or not where you want to be in life, don’t settle, make a change, and set an action plan to get to where you want to be! ...
Are you a dreamer? Or are you a DOER!? I’m choosing to be a doer, and I’m so thankful I didn’t settle, I made some changes, and now I’m getting after ALL my GOALS in all aspects of my life! ➡️What about you? Are you ready to embrace happiness? ⬅️
LISTEN. If you would have told the kid on the left 5 years ago that he would be into body building he would have laughed at you. And kept traveling and gaming at tournaments. -This is 5 years later 5 years difference. A LOT OF FUCKING FAILURES. No one sees those, they only see the pictures, but I NEVER gave up on myself. I work 2 jobs, I still time to find to lift. It’s what I LOVE to do. It’s not for everyone, and thats okay. I finally achieved something I’ve always wanted. On top of that I competed in a men’s physique show and took 1st in both my classes, thanks to being under @terry_placker
wing. I’m still not happy with where I’m at, will I ever be? I don’t know BUT im content and that’s what matters. I’ll always want to better myself and that’s what we’re going to do. This is just the beginning. Don’t fucking give up. Chase your goals and crush them. 💯🤙🏻
📸Modeling as of a few days ago was out of my comfort zone, but now after my second shoot in a few short days I can say that I enjoy it and like the new challenges that it brings‼️ .
Don’t be afraid to do things you’ve never tried before, it keeps things interesting. 😜
Shoutout to @alphafitnesskings
for the solid camera work‼️👊🏻💯
The legit feeling when you’ve run out of your favorite post workout shake. • •
Little do people know, a post workout shake consisting of a fast digesting protein mixed with fast acting carb source can make a huge difference in post workout recovery. • •
In a post workout setting “time is muscle” and can mean the difference between being catabolic(burning muscle & storing fat) or being anabolic (burning fat & building muscle). • •
Utilizing Phormula-1 and Ignition together can help you not only recovery like a thoroughbred athlete but also keep our meals in check! ————————————— #JuggernautSC #clanginandbangin #NeverSettle #LegionofBoom #1stphorm #Essketit
