First time doing deficits. Starting off pretty light since I've never done these before. At a whopping 220 lbs. I'm incorporating them into my lifts because my sticky point is off the floor. (Of course it is). I will be working on these this next year and a bunch of other exercises like pendalay rows, glute bridge off bench, focusing on lots of glute work, rhomboid work, lower back and core work. The true test will be in a year. I'll let you guys know if these help with my enemy.... The Deadlift.... bah bah bahhhh

How important is your health and nutrition? I often hear people complain about their body, but they keep doing nothing about it.
The excuses are endless. Not having time, they're a single parent, they work too many hours. They don't want to go to the gym by themselves, they don't have a gym partner to hold them accountable. They don't know what workouts they should be doing. They don't understand nutrition, they don't know how much they should be eating. They're too tired, they have no energy.
Do you know which people I specifically never hear complain? The ones who actually want it bad enough to make it a priority. Why do I never hear them complain? Because they are always reaching their goals.
Not enough time? Go to the gym on your lunch break or wake up an hour early. Single parent? Gyms have daycare. Don't have someone to hold you accountable? Good, you're an adult. Hold yourself accountable. Don't know how you should workout? There are personal trainers who would love to show you how. Don't understand nutrition or how you should be eating? Get a nutritionist or use the countless number of resources like books and the internet to teach yourself about nutrition. Have no energy? Okay, take some preworkout and get to it. Do you know what an active lifestyle promotes? ENERGY.
I, too had excuses like these. I was that person at one point. But you are an adult, you make your own decisions. You want it bad enough, you will be successful and you will never have to complain because you will be reaching your goals. Don't let a negative mindset be the reason you become one gigantic roadblock to your own hopes and dreams. 🙂

Arnolds giving me an armful🤩
My goal the past couple of weeks is to improve the width of my back. While this is a shoulder movement, dropping my elbows below 90 degrees engages my lats in the push back up. Not only am I using shoulders in this exercise, but lats as well! I’ve heard people say the right way to shoulder press is below 90 degrees and others say you have to stop at 90 degrees. It actually depends on what you’re aiming to work on. If you’re looking to split the load between your lats and shoulders, drop your elbows below 90 degrees. If your goal is to strictly burn out those delts then keep your elbows from dipping past 90. There are lots of people saying “this is wrong” and “that is wrong” but ultimately you need to ask yourself what are you trying to accomplish executing this exercise and go for that movement. The only “wrong” movement in my opinion is one that’s going to harm your body. Remember to keep an open mind when lifting and lift each other up instead of pushing others down! #figurecompetitor #npc #novice #wolftitanathletics #alphalete #eatclean #livefitapparel #beseen #legend #nutrition #fitfam #fitness #girlswholift #boulevardfitness #sansiego #sandiegostate #sdsu #bossbabe #boss #bodybuilder #bodybuildingcom #bodybuilding #liftweights #dye #shoulders
Like the pic? Good! I had just a nice #legworkout
and now that I have your attention read this 👇
Train, bodybuild because you ENJOY it and it makes you feel fitter and stronger and NOT because you're 'chasing a dream'.Yep, this is something I read on every other social media post from mostly young peeps regarding fitness:' I am chasing my dream.' What dream? Of becoming a miserable girl (or boy) because you're hungry and tired the whole time? If you're really killing yourself in every workout and starving yourself, you simply don't have any selflove. And guess what; it isn't sustainable and you'lll have a setback physicaly and mentaly as well. Working out is a great addition to your life but, if you don't spent at least an equal amount of time on educating yourself you'll realise in your older days that your 'dream' just faded...and nobody cares that you have a one digit bodyfat percentage. Hard reality duh...yeah I'm a hardcore girl also when it comes to speak my mind. #trainhard #workhard #studyhard #playhard #motivation #fitnessmotivation #realitycheck #bodyfat #bodyweight #fitatanyage #fitoverforty #fitfifty #bodybuildingcom
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. ...

Ain’t nothing more important than keeping your lines clean ya feel me?
Happy Sunday y’all! I hope everyone’s prayers are being answered and if they aren’t, remember that God takes matters into his own hands sometimes when we are on the wrong path. People will hurt you who you never thought would hurt you, but they will also give you happiness sometimes that is better than anything in the entire universe. Take those moments and keep them in your heart. You never know which of those moments is going to be the last one.
Starting to incorporate more hypertrophy into more sessions to ensure I’m putting all the extra calories I’m eating to good use

Na Leute, wie war euer Wochenende? 🤙🏼
Ich hab jetzt erstmal für zwei Wochen, Wochenende. 😎
Oder auch Ferien genannt, heißt; Ganz viel Zeit fürs Training und ordentlich Zeit zu regenerieren. Also top Voraussetzungen um ein paar neue Muckis zu machen. 💪🏼
Dabei muss ich mich mal etwas mit der Ernährung disziplinieren, es geht zwar voran, aber vorgekocht habe ich bisher noch nicht. 😬🤷♂️
Wie läuft es bei euch aktuell? ✌🏼
On my way to the 🔝! I need a @nike
fuel band to see how long the run has been. 🏆#focus #goals
