When I meet somebody, I always vision them without their successful business, their car, their money, their house or their job.
Purely to see how they'd stand without their crutches or labels... 👀

The answer is…It depends.
📍Both exercises hit the triceps in the same way. The triceps attach down at the olecranon process (elbow) and by rotating your hand (supinating or pronating) doesn’t target any specific muscle differently.
📍The reason for using one over the other is more so based on what you’re looking to get out of it.
📍Overhand (Pronated Grip)
➖This is the grip that people generally use. With the pronated grip, you are able to lift more weight because the bar is not in a position where it can slip out. You’re on top of it so there’s not much limiting you.
➖Although you can increase the weights, it’s a lot easier to compensate in this position.
➖Common compensations that occur are…
Shrugging the shoulders
Flaring of the elbows
Wrist in an extended position (should remain neutral)
📍Underhand (Supinated Grip)
➖This will ultimately help straighten out your form if you compensate with the pronated grip. Flaring your elbows won’t be an issue since you would most likely become weaker in by flaring so your body will not go that route.
➖With the supinated grip, you are limited to how much weight you can lift because if you go to heavy the bar will simply slip out of your hands. You hand grip will be limiting factor in this exercise.
⠀➖You may feel your triceps more on this exercise just because its form is much more strict in comparison to the pronated grip.
⠀📍Take Home Message
➖So if you find you are struggling to maybe feel the tricep or just compensate a lot during the overhand tricep press down/extension, doing the underhand (supinated) grip may be beneficial for you.
➖Another viable option if you want to stick with the overhand (pronated) grip is to let your ego go and just lighten the weight….

🔥Pull Day Routine🔥 by @dancudes
Yesterday I posted a push day routine example that people can use as a guideline for their workouts. Here, similar to that, is a pull day routine example. This pull day is actually pretty identical to my own though I actually add about 5-10 minutes of some front lever skill work before all of this (not shown in the pic). As always, I start with the heaviest, most taxing lifts in the lowest rep ranges at the beginning, then gradually go to moderate rep ranges until I hit my finisher (pull-ups in this case). I like to finish my workouts with fundamental bodyweight movements. Now, if you have been following this page for long enough, I hate on biceps curls when they are used in place of compound lifts. However, if it is used as ancillary work, like it is here, than I think they can be useful and, in fact, I have seen great results with them. As always, I finish with some core and I'm done for the day. Again, this is not me writing you a workout plan, this is me giving an example and a bit of insight into my own training regimen so that you can adapt the exercise selection and rep ranges to your level and comfortability. You got this!

1 large handful of mixed greens (I used Green Isle Super Greens)
2 large eggs
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
300g brussels sprouts, steamed and halved
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 large pinch chipotle flakes
Large pinch of coarse salt and cracked black pepper
1. Preheat your oven to 200°c/ 392°F.
2. Heat a large pan with a tsp of coconut oil.
3. Dice the bacon and add it to the pan, cook for 1-2 minutes each side.
4. In a large ovenproof dish, lay out the veggies and sprinkle with the chipotle, salt and pepper, bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the onions are nicely caramelised.
5. Remove the dish from the oven, sprinkle in the bacon and give the mixture a good toss, then create 2 small wells & crack the eggs into them.
6. Sprinkle a final pinch of black pepper onto the eggs and place in the oven to back for 12-15 minutes, until cooked to your liking – serve and enjoy! 👩🏼🍳🎉 Happy Saturday!! #thewonkyspatula
Jam-packed Saturday morning in the gym, great start to a bright sunny day 😎 Great work everybody 👏👏👏
Chef Fit Success Stories - Peter pt.4/4 🐐
Peter had tried everything before Chef Fit. Every diet under the sun with no results to show and maximum frustration levels. He came into Chef Fit and blew himself and the other chefs away with his work ethic, results and confidence. He has lost nearly 13kg since September last year and is still pushing onwards. Good man Peter!
