Quando mi guardo allo specchio lo faccio sempre con occhio critico. Cerco sempre di capire in cosa potrei migliorare e penso a come farlo... Non mi arrenderò mai finché non avrò il fisico che sogno.
Combatti sempre per i tuoi obiettivi e i tuoi sogni, solo così un giorno potrai essere orgoglioso di ciò che sarai diventato..

Vor einigen Tagen habe ich das erste mal seit Monaten trainiert und bin relativ zufrieden und froh, dass sich mein Gewicht einigermaßen gut gehalten hat 🙈 Ich habe allerdings nur Zuhause trainiert. Wer kennt es, dass man bei dieser Kälte nicht zum Sport geht weil der Weg hin und zurück vieeeel zu kalt wäre und die Motivation einfach fehlt 😶😕 Ps: Durch diese Perspektive sieht meine breite Hüfte noch breiter aus 😂🤔
WANT TO DO BOX JUMPS?!
What’s up, Achievers?! @jasonlpak here and we’ve recently received some requests to cover plyometrics more. We decided to cover box jumps, because it tends to be one of the first places that people start to work on their power. We love the box jump because it’s an amazing exercise that promotes explosive strength, but the elevation of the box also allows for the individual to not absorb as much force on the joints so it’s a great way to teach optimal landing mechanics.
Before jumping into box jumps (Me: see what I did there? Literally everyone else: 😫😫😫), you want to master these five drills first:
3️⃣Back squat (any loaded squat works here)
You really need to make sure that you first have a really solid squat pattern both unloaded and loaded so that you can develop the strength to withstand forces from jumping before performing plyometrics.
4️⃣Drop squat - we love this exercise because it teaches you the mechanics of loading your stretch reflex (how you initiate the jump) but because you’re not worrying about actually jumping you can really focus on your form (sitting back, keeping your knees out, driving your arms back, etc.)
5️⃣Footwork drill - one of the most common errors we see when people jump is their position upon landing. Their feet tend to splay way out and their knees tend to collapse in. Just thinking about better alignment doesn’t really help because most people are just worried about clearing the box! Performing this drill on the floor can really help to gain an understand of landing with your feet relatively straight, and upon impact pushing your knees out - all in a very “safe” environment.
I hope these drills help you out! Make sure you don’t rush the process, and you’ll have a solid foundation for your explosive work! Until next time, Peace, Love, and a Muscles! ✌️💙💪

Start the week right by taking a second to think of one thing that you are grateful for.
It can be: for the clothes you’re wearing, the water you’re drinking, the air con in your office, the fact that you have two legs and two hands; it can be anything!
It’s easy to get caught up in the negative things that cloud our life.
We take our possessions, relationships and abilities for granted so often.
We complain about the smallest things (like not having strong wifi signal)
The fact that you have a mobile phone in your hand while reading this, means you’re already better of than the majority of the world.
There are people that have to walk miles to get water to hydrate their families.
Let’s remind ourselves of the luxuries and relationships we have.
The next time we find ourselves complaining or feeling low, take a deep breath and appreciate what we have.
My 2cents- I’m grateful that I have the ability, time and freedom to go out for a run to clear my mind.
What are you grateful for? - Let me know in the comments!

How many outfit changes, bar switches, snack breaks, scoops of pre workout, weight plate throws and silent tantrums does it take before Katie finally accepts that her body is overtrained and abandons her leg session to go home and let it rest? 🌚
Tonight and tomorrow is all about lots of food for recovery and fuel and brutal stretching and foam rolling. I'll get loads of sleep, read Sapiens and maybe even wash my hair for the 4th time ever.
Balance Bowl: tattie and kale hash, tofu, mushrooms, green beans, asparagus, houmous (I don't buy this one because it's reduced fat, I buy it because it tastes bangin 🤙). Alpro yogurt, soy coffee and my Gran's homemade vegan biscuits that give me hope 🙋♀️
15 MIN FAT BURNER 🔥 try out the finisher!!
Have you got 15 mins and a desire to burn some fat? GREAT!
Put 30 seconds on the clock and perform as many reps as you can in that time! No rest between A exercises and B exercises, but take up to 30 seconds after to catch your breath, and repeat for 3 rounds before moving onto the next exercises.
Finisher - Never done deadmills? Think running on a treadmill in a power cut.. ⚡ that's right you won't turn the machine on, but will use the power in your legs to power the belt 💪🏽 go for 20-30 seconds and 3-5 sets
If you are more of a beginner, DM me for a scaled down version of this workout 👌🏽 YOU READY??
