BACK DAY... AND LEGS⁉️ Okay so it was a quick back day because I had to go in between my CPT course (selfie taken in the bathroom of the building📸). It was a great back workout... but then I forgot we were doing a spin class for 20 minutes in my CPT course and I did legs yesterday. Needless to say i died, my legs were sore from yesterday, and I can’t walk☠️ Week 9 - Day 3 - BACK
Reppin' the fresh new gear that'll soon be available for purchase so stay tuned (Black/Gold tee/compression shirts & also available in White/Gold)... this guy is def Blessed beyond words to be in the position I'm in... "legally" owning multiple businesses & always having my mind on doing bigger & better with a "never satisfied always hungry" mindset & a tunnel-vision focus on next level goals... To whom much is given much is required so negative opinions/hate NEVER discourages me but only adds fuel to my fire & adds more chips to my shoulder so I look at things as 1/2 full rather than 1/2 empty... we gotta always remember no matter how bad things may be -- there's plenty of people who have it alot worse & they wish they had it as good as u even if u dont appreciate where u are & think its terrible (ie: just watch the news & see what I'm talking about)... whether u make minimum wage or have more money than everyone else ALWAYS count your blessings & appreciate the "little" things (ie: being alive, clean water, clean clothes, etc...) cause there's plenty who arent even that fortunate LETS GOOOOOOOO 💪🏿💪🏿😎💲👑 🙏 #blessed#health#fitness#gym#strength#exercise#workout#calisthenics#fitnessmodel#muscles#abs#brand#athlete#model#modeling#fitover30#success#motivation#consistency#entrepreneur#ELITEGRIND#ELITESWAGG#TEAMJAXDRUMZFITNESS
Fantastic effort! What a place to run a marathon too 👏
Posted @withrepost • @jaxie72 What an incredible adventure! Adam and I flew to Norway to take part in the Icebug Xperience Frozen Lake Marathon......just wow!!! At 819m above sea level and -8° when we started, it was certainly a challenge, but it was absolutely fantastic. The views were magnificent, and it was so well organised.
We borrowed Icebug trainers when we arrived, and they were prefect on the ice. Excellent grip.
Loved seeing Adam at various points out on course. Made it even more special.
I also surprised myself by winning the ladies race, somehow managing 3h20m in those challenging conditions and coming 6th overall. They gave me a beautiful handmade trophy!
Creating such special memories with Adam. Perfect weekend. Many more to come. 🤗
Don’t take things to seriously, have a bit of fun with it and enjoy the little things in life like my biceps 😂

Legs & Booty 🍑⚡️🍑⚡️ Work on single leg movements to get your strength up to speed quickly! You’ll get more than just a leg workout- you will work on ankle mobility, core strength and balance too. #legsfordays#bootyduty#gluteday •
1. Bodyweight Pistol 8 reps each leg** you can modify this by starting off of a chair**
2. Single leg deadlift 12 reps each leg **I’m using a kettlebell as a balance prop on top of the weight bench here just so I can get deeper into my hamstrings and butt, but I also do these without a guide when I want to work on more core stability. Make sure you keep your back neutral and your hips square.**
3. Single leg step-up 12 reps each leg **Start with no weight and work your way up. I grab a heavy enough weight where I can hinge ever so slightly forward to put more of my weight in my heel to get more butt engagement. I’m holding onto the rack here for the same reason- butt focus.**
Repeat 3X ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Episode 110: Basketball & Ankle Sprains - Proprioceptive Training Basis
The first video in our basketball & ankle sprain series will start off with general ankle strengthening/proprioceptive training in various positions & directions. Basketball requires a lot of jumping, and players are at risk of landing on another player’s foot. Strengthening the muscles around the ankle, specifically the firing rate of the peroneals, can help the body overcome risky positions and create stability. Jumping on an uneven surface can simulate positions that the ankle might experience when landing as well.
To perform this exercise you should:
1. Place a wedged pad against a wall or find a ramp with moderate incline
2. Stand with one leg on the pad
3. Jump and land on the pad 10 times
4. Repeat in the 3 other directions (looking right, left, and backward)
🏃🏽♀️Eccentric Hip Flexion🏃🏻♂️
Training eccentric hip flexion is important for runners and all athletes as when we run, the hip flexors work in this manner before bringing the leg forward during the gait cycle.
This variation in standing, with the band at the foot, requires a large amount of single leg stability and co-contraction of muscles throughout the lower extremity and core.
This exercise can be used to specifically to target the hip flexors in a standing position as part of late stage rehabilitation for hip flexor strains or in general training, however is an exercise that is often most appropriate in late stages of rehabilitation
Give 3 sets of 8 per side a try and make sure to go slow (3-5 count) when moving the leg back, as this targets the eccentric phase. If you get pain during or after this exercise, you may need to try some easier versions! Consult your trusted providers if you are unsure if something is safe for you!

I have to remind hubby sometimes that I’m more than just a butt 🤦🏼♀️ I swear, he can’t keep his hands off...and when I’m trying to talk to him, he sometimes gets distracted 😂 but that’s also because men have a hard time multi-tasking.
Truth be told - I LOVE that we both enjoy health and fitness. It truly makes things a lot easier. Like with this elimination diet I’ve been on for 2 weeks now - I have to give hubby a major shout out because he’s been pretty much doing it with me and also helping me to prep and cook things I can have.
Not only that, he helps me get out of bed in the morning to get moving to the gym. I’m extremely thankful to have a built-in accountability partner.
Thanks babe for all your support @coachmac_elite BUTT - remember, I’m more than just a butt!

You don’t progress because you don’t understand the process. .
In “bulking season” there’s is 4 things you have to respect to maximized muscle growth.
2-Adapted training program
Your body will grow , your muscle mass , but you will gain fat. This process will give you strength and volume to your muscles. Then you will have to “cut the fat from the meat” to see the beauty of this process.
Tu ne progresse pas parceque tu ne comprend pas le processus. .
Il est très difficile de prendre du muscle sans prendre de gras. Pendant une prise de masse ( phase anabolique) il ya 4 critères à respecter:
2-un entraînement adapté
3-un suivi des charges
4-la récupération (le repos)
Le corps va grossir , le volume musculaire va augmenter mais aussi la masse grasse. Vous allez gagner en muscle et en gras , c’est le prix à payer pour un physique volumineux et puissant. Il faudra ensuite réaliser “une sèche” ( phase catabolique) pour réduire le gras et définir le muscle.
*À venir , les critères à respecter en mode sèche*
Most of you who voted in my stories wanted to see the video of how my injury occurred! 🙈😖😢
For those of you who are squeamish do not swipe!
I was feeling super solid in the pose but I lifted my arm too quickly and my hand was not in the center of the bell and thus the bell tilted a I came down very quickly! Fortunately my left arm caught most of the fall & I reset the bones without thinking 😱🙈 Ouch!!
Yesterday I posted asking about perspective... today I’m really put to the test! Ha! While I’m incredibly bummed and the pain is excruciating! Right now we know of one abulsion fracture and there is possibly one other fracture 😥 but I’m seriously counting my blessings since it could have been sooo much worse!! I ask for prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery! Good vibes only!! I’m already bummed and I’m not interested in hearing negative comments. Do I wish I could press rewind?... of course but we all make mistakes and right now I’m counting my blessings that this one didn’t end up worse!!
🙏🏼💖🙏🏼🤞🏼 ... Prepare to see lots of pull-up videos in the next 6-8 weeks 🤣🤣🤣

ARMageddon Prep Chronicles:
Here are ✌🏽 of my favorite 💪🏽 exercises from Friday’s insane session 👇🏽
I - Dumbbell Hammer Curls (3 Reps) to Dumbbell Biceps Curls (2 Reps) for a total of (15 Reps) -> (9 Hammer Curls | 6 Biceps Curls) = 4 (Sets) x 15 (Reps)
** I typically use 1” Gorilla Grips to increase (Grip Strength) and (Forearm Activation) while squeezing the Dumbbell as hard as I can. In combination with this I focus on the (Concentric) Squeeze + Contraction and the (Eccentric) Squeeze + Stretch.
II - Dumbbell Biceps Curl (Reverse) Ladder utilizing descending weight. Perform (5 Reps) at your starting weight and decrease by 5 LBs for a total of (5 Subsets) = 2 (Sets) x 25 (Reps)
** 1” Gorilla Grips Optional **
I keep it basic when it comes to training Arms (Biceps & Triceps) because I’ve had Shoulder and Elbow issues stemming from my Baseball career. If you’re having issues with growth in your arms try these tips 👇🏽
1 - Research the correct Posture & Positioning for your favorite #biceps and #triceps exercises.
2 - Take the information you’ve gained from your research and combine that with light weight and practice proper form.
3 - Once you’ve improved your Posture, Positioning & Form you will begin to acquire that Mind to Muscle Connection that is crucial in growth & development over time.
4 - Experiment with various Grips, Angles, Equipment, etc until you find what works best for you.
5 - Remain Patient. Growth will happen!
