  • There is a deep underlying issue with weight loss schemes such as Slimming World🤔⠀
⠀⠀
Yes, people have successfully turned their lives around and have made the effort to lose hundreds of pounds worth of fat and it’s worked amazingly for them👍⠀
⠀⠀
The bottom line is that a ‘Calorie Deficit’ is needed for fat loss🔥 it’s very easy to be in a calorie deficit whilst eating foods that you enjoy when you understand and take the time to learn nutrition🙏🏼⠀
⠀⠀
Slimming World has dumbed down nutrition to a Syn based point system which consists of many ‘bad’ options like this Mars Bar which would be around 11.4 syns🤷🏻‍♂️ to a Slimming World user, that’s a no no! But changing that to proper values, 229 calories is really not the end of the world and I could easily fit that into any bodies diet and still be losing fat!⠀
⠀⠀
The ‘Free Foods’ is also problematic as you can eat those almost risk-free on a Slimming World program which is odd because those foods could push your weekly calorie intake way higher than you intended meaning you may not lose fat that week☹️⠀
⠀⠀
Slimming World is like gambling, you’re telling yourself you can’t eat Mars Bars when you want them, you’re restricting food choices and you also don’t know if you’re going to be losing any fat at the end of the week until you step on the scales after paying £20 a month for your ‘assessment’⠀
⠀⠀
I am not attacking anybody who has done this or currently does this, I’m simply offering you the knowledge to change your diet to one that you enjoy and one that is calculated and made for results to be seen on the scales 👌⠀
⠀⠀
I advise you use your height/weight stats in an online calorie calculator to estimate your daily calorie amount, then use ‘MyFitnessPal’ where you can scan your food/meals into it and it will count the calories👍⠀

Are you familiar with the 80/20 Rule for weight loss? 👀
-
It WILL change your life. 🙏🏼 (Post By @maxweberfit )
-
Often referred to as “Flexible Dieting”, the 80/20 Rule is the most effective and sustainable solution to losing weight fast, and keeping that weight off.
-
💥 In fact, the 80/20 Rule is used every single day by pro athletes, bodybuilders, bikini competitors, business execs, social media influencers and normal people like you and me to stay in shape while eating the foods WE all love.
-
Here’s how it works…
-
👉🏼 Eat nutritious, unprocessed, healthy foods 80% of the time
-
This would include foods like 🥗🍓🥦🍗🥕 most of the day.
-
👉🏼 Enjoy fun, ‘not-so-healthy’ foods the remaining 20% of the time
-
This would be allowing yourself to enjoy some 🍦🍪🍫🍷 every now and then.
-
As an example, you can see in the infographic above that it’s okay to enjoy some pizza and beer every now and then, and it’s aright to enjoy a glass or two of red wine while still making progress on your fitness goals.
-
The key here is flexibility — fitting in “fun” foods, while not bending or breaking and having an entire cheat day. 👌🏼
-
🤔 Also, did you know...?
-
Numerous studies and research has shown that a more moderate, flexible diet promotes better long term success than rigid, restrictive diets at scale. 🔬
-
This means that if you can be flexible with your diet, you CAN make progress and more importantly, sustain that progress for life.
-
YOUR TAKEAWAY: Start implementing the 80/20 Rule in your everyday life. As you control calories, you’ll lose fat, be sexy, feel amazing all while having the flexibility to enjoy some ice cream every now and then. And what could be better than that? 😌
-
Comment “🍔 if you love the 80/20 Rule!

😴 Sleep - it is so important to get a minimum of ~7 hours of sleep, as your body needs to rest & recover.
___________________
💪 Lift Weights - fit people always find a way to exercise, whether they get some cardio in, play sports, or lift weights. 
___________________
📝 Track foods / eat intuitively - Fit people tend to have a good idea of how much food they are consuming on a daily basis. They either rely on their intuition, or they track their calories and food intake via apps such as myfitnessspal. 
___________________
😏 Treat without the guilt - fit people do not go through a guilt trip cycle. Instead, they embrace their unhealthy meal or even cheat day. Instead of dwelling on the small bump in their fitness journey, they get right back on track the following meal/day.
___________________
🍹 Do not drink their calories - fit people (this mainly pertains to those cutting & looking to lose fat) tend to stay away from liquid calories. These are usually empty, unsatiating calories (e.g. juice).
《Note: On a bulk, drinking calories can actually be very beneficial.》
___________________
🍳 High protein diet- in order to stay full for longer, recover, and help their muscles grow, fit people will make sure to get enough protein throughout the day (~1g of protein per lb of lean muscle mass).

  • Do you remember how sore your hammies were the first time you did RDL’s Properly!?!? Right under my 🍑 was sooooo sore 😭
-
The RDL is a super technical movement and most times is done incredibly wrong….
-
✅ But, it is an essential movement for anyone to learn because a hip hinge is soo important to learn for quality of movement throughout everyday life! And also to build some THICCC Hammies
-
🙌🏻 So here are a few cues I like to think of when teaching anyone the RDL:
1️⃣ Feet Shoulder Width Apart (stance can vary but for someone doing the movement for the first time, this is where you want to start.
2️⃣ Grip ground with your toes to make 3 points of contact with your feet (the heel, toes and side of your foot.)
3️⃣ Activate Lats by sitting shoulders back and down as if you were dropping your shoulder blades into a bucket.
4️⃣ While activating lats, be careful not to poke your chest out too much to get you into hyperextension. To fix this, act as if someone was going to punch you in the stomach. This is make you drop your rib cage.
5️⃣ Next is the hip hinge. Think as if someone is pushing a table top into the crease of your hip pushing your hips back.
6️⃣ Keep pushing butt back at if you were scoop your butt back and up to touch a wall behind you.
7️⃣ The goal should be to find a very tight tension in your hamstrings as soon as possible.
-
✳️ This is the checklist that all need to be present for high quality movement. You are thinking of step 1️⃣ then 2️⃣ then 3️⃣ and so on.
-
🤷🏻‍♂️ How do I program these?

For me, I tend to program this into most of my lower body workouts as an accessory movement after squats.

And you’ll see in the picture, I’m only using 65’s and that’s because those are the heaviest DBs my apartment gym has. For perspective, I usually use do 110’s for sets of 8-10 reps.

So how do I make those 65’s feel heavy!? Tempo and pauses! I use at 2-3 second negative with a 3 second pause at the bottom of each rep! Then rest periods are lower (superset with lunges or some split squat variation)

How do I program if have heavier DBs? ❇️ 4x(12,10,8,15) DB RDL’s with weight increasing as reps decrease. Slight pause at the bottom of each rep.

  • Maximise your gains
.
🙅🏼‍♂️ First of, lets keep it real here, building muscle isn't easy, it takes time and you have to deploy a lot of patience and consistency. However there are a few things that you can be doing to optimise and achieve muscle growth.
.
🔧 Training - You've got to lift heavy. Now remember that heavy is a relative term. Everyone is at different levels and strengths but you need to lift what is heavy for you. However form first with solid technique at a rep range of 5-15!
.
🔨 Focus on increasing training volume over time. (Training volume = Weight x total reps). Focus on some big compound movements and look to increase the total volume over time with these lifts. The time frame can be weeks or months. Mix the rep ranges up to achieve that increase in volume. Try to stick predominantly to 5-12 reps to achieve hypertrophy (muscle growth).
.
⚒ Devise a training split where you can train each muscle that you want to grow at least 2x a week and stay consistent with it, for example:
.
🛠Training 3x a week (Full body workout x3)
Training 4x a week (Full body push x2 / Full body pull x2)
Training 5x a week (Legs / upper body push / upper body pull / Legs / full upper body)
Training 6x a week (Legs x2 / upper body push x2 / upper body pull x2)
.
🍎 Nutrition - You HAVE to eat in a calorie surplus meaning you are consuming more calories than you are burning on a daily basis. Eat 1g of protein per 1lb of bodyweight. Don’t neglect carbs, carbs are your friend for muscle growth. Eat 0.4-0.7g of fat per lb of bodyweight. (Unsure of how to work your calories/ macros out the subscribe on my website and you will get sent a document explaining all).
.
💤 Other points - Sleep is important. The recommended amount is 7-9 hours, this is when your muscles recover. Creatine can be a very useful supplement and is one that is backed up pretty heavily by science to be beneficial. It wont make your muscles grow more but it will help with your performance in the gym.

  • Why are our standards so low in this country?? Had to share this mind blowing post that my friend Raina posted. Why are we in the US settling for this?? Take a look at this... Did you know Quaker Oats Strawberries & Cream has ZERO strawberries? In the U.S. Quaker mimics the look and taste of real strawberries by using “Flavored and Colored Fruit Pieces” comprised of dehydrated apples, artificial strawberry flavor, citric acid, and the artificial dye Red 40. 😳 (This is part of the reason why I am so grateful for my superfood nutrition.!) Meanwhile in the U.K. Quaker doesn't even attempt to sell that garbage. They instead have a product called “Oat So Simple” that has real strawberries in it—light years ahead of the U.S. version that’s made with artificial dyes and artificial flavors.

We are continuously assured that our food is "safe". We’re told that it’s foolish to worry about what’s really in our food because companies would never be allowed to use a dangerous additive in their foods. Or would they? 
When you find a company that consistently time over time strives to source the cleanest, most sustainable ingredients you align with their commitment to health. #WeAreIsagenix

  • ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS ARE GOING TO KILL YOU.....🤔
.
...Proved no scientist ever. 😑
.
Fact: 
Number of studies in humans that show that artificial sweeteners cause gluten intolerance, changes in glycemic index, increased appetite, high blood pressure, or any other long term health affects: zero 0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣
.
Anything we’ve tried to pice apart in humans, no significance
.
Doesn’t mean there aren’t interesting questions in rodents, but these hypothesis aren’t getting proved correct in humans
.
A 150lbs person needs 3409mg per day to reach acceptable daily intake. That’s the upper range. (That’s 23.6 diet dr peppers in one day.) This number even has the large safety built in....so you could consume way over that with no effect
.
A study can pop up that will change my mind, but for now, let’s remain CALM 😜

  • Back home and I’m finally get back into my routine. I’ve been traveling and vacationing the last 3 weeks and anyone want to take a stab at how much weight I gained?👀 it’s ok - I have another 4 weeks before my next cruise (all expenses paid with our virtual team of coaches!!!) and I plan on losing it by then. 👌🏻

  • This was my first half marathon with @sarah_smile85 ! We trained 7 days a week (half of the days were with each other). We were also in dental hygiene school and worked part time. And they highly recommended not working while in hygiene school. We were BUSY. I have no idea how I passed hygiene school. 😂😂 .

Running/jogging use to be my form of exercise. Basically anything cardio. I’ve done step aerobics, zumba, you name it. .

It was all fun, but I definitely plateaued. I may have gotten a little faster, but not by much. The classes got easier. It just wasn’t fulfilling for me. .

Strength training has been transforming to me in more ways than one. I’ll always have new goals to set - whether it be in reps, sets, weights, or form. This keeps me engaged week after week and month after month when workouts seem to be a little monotonous. .

Also, the mental strength it has built in me that I never experienced while I was heavy into cardio. .

To me, nothing beats completing a lift that looks way too intimidating to get under. It has taught me to reframe my focus and believe that I am capable of accomplishing goals that I set for myself. .

Now, strength training is not for everyone. It is great for weight loss and body sculpting or “toning” but just being active is important. I believe you need to find a type of workout or activity that keeps you engaged and that challenges you. I am happy that I have found mine.

    It was all fun, but I definitely plateaued. I may have gotten a little faster, but not by much. The classes got easier. It just wasn’t fulfilling for me. .

    Strength training has been transforming to me in more ways than one. I’ll always have new goals to set - whether it be in reps, sets, weights, or form. This keeps me engaged week after week and month after month when workouts seem to be a little monotonous. .

    Also, the mental strength it has built in me that I never experienced while I was heavy into cardio. .

    To me, nothing beats completing a lift that looks way too intimidating to get under. It has taught me to reframe my focus and believe that I am capable of accomplishing goals that I set for myself. .

    Now, strength training is not for everyone. It is great for weight loss and body sculpting or “toning” but just being active is important. I believe you need to find a type of workout or activity that keeps you engaged and that challenges you. I am happy that I have found mine.
