It’s #ScienceSunday ! Time for some #BrainGains ! 💪🏻🧠
💪🏻Whats the name of your go-to Spotify playlist for your workout? Or if you don’t have one, what is your favorite band or genre to listen to while you train?? Did you know that listening to this music can actually measurably impact your workout? That’s what today’s Science Sunday post is all about!
👩🏼🔬THE STUDY: The purpose of this study was to examine if listening to a preferred genre of music improves weight lifting performance.
🔅12 trained men performed a 1 rep max for the bench press test to establish their baseline then in two separate sessions they performed reps to failure while listening to either their preferred genre of workout music or their least preferred genre of music.
🔅They measured reps to failure at 75% of 1RM, along with average velocity, peak velocity, power over the first three reps of the set, and subjective training motivation.
🔬THE RESULTS: The subjects performed significantly better across the board when listening to their preferred music genre.
👉🏻WHAT THIS MEANS: Listening to music that “gets you in the zone” during your workout doesn’t just make your workouts more enjoyable and make you feel more badass. It actually can improve your workout performance and literally make you more badass. Don’t settle for subpar music. Take the time to curate your perfect playlist.
❗️LIMITATIONS: Small sample size and there wasn’t a “no music” option tested so we can’t conclude that listening to preferred music is actually better than no music, just that it is better than non-preferred music.

💚You guyyyyss. This honey garlic chipotle salmon = so good! (it hit all the important flavor notes: sweet, salty, spicy). This garlic-parmesan hasselbacks potato = so crispy! (It was my first time making hasselbacks, and it won’t be my last). This asparagus = so soggy! 😂 (Really, though — I left it on the grill five minutes too long). But in all, this meal = so satisfying ☺️.
Today think about all that you ARE instead of all that you are not. .
So many people struggle with body image issues. Our minds distort our mirrors - I AM A TRUE BELIEVER OF THAT! I look in the mirror and still my eyes are drawn to my insecurities. I am so thankful I’ve gotten to the point where I workout because I love my body, not because I hate it. Workout because you LOVE your body - love your body enough to want to change it and do things for it that are good. Just don’t forget: we all have our struggles 🤷🏽♀️ some just hide them bette than others.
HAPPY Monday! Who’s training today? I trained legs for the first time in a while last week and only just recovered, enough to do it all over again this week 😅 If you want a challenging leg/booty workout, save mine below and try it out 🙌
Repeat each set of 2 exercises 3 times before moving onto the next set. .
1️⃣ Deadlifts heavy barbell x8
2️⃣ Deadlifts with 2 dumbbells - light x15
1️⃣ Squats with heavy barbell x8
2️⃣ Lunge pulses with 2 dumbells x12 each side
1️⃣ Squat pulses x4 5 times (30kg total)
2️⃣ Squat jumps x12
1️⃣ Cable pull through x12
2️⃣ Kettle bell squat upright row x12 heavy
1️⃣ Single leg kick back cable x12 each leg
2️⃣ Lunge jumps x20 total alternating
Be prepared to waddle and struggle to sit or walk 🤣😛 This took me around 40/45 mins. I also did 5-10 minutes of cardio before and after 👌🏼
