Happy Tuesday!! .
Today was a rough one.. it was almost 90 degrees and my allergies were killing me!! I almost skipped the gym to rest my draining face 😭 but new that would only make me feel worse! .
I got off work and drove straight to the gym before I could change my mind. Luckily being indoors with air condition really helped and I had a solid lift! 💪🏼 .
I don’t always have the motivation to get it done.. and believe me I looked like one miserable b#!& walking into the gym 😭 but after 15 min I was zoned in and workin! .
.Getting to the gym is not always fun and sometimes the LAST place you want to be after a full day of work! But I promise when Friday comes around and you nailed your workouts for the week all the other feelings go away.. .
Now go get those gains! .
hate dirty mirrors but leg day was litttt🔥🔥 thanks babe for killing my legs @hugol011 😘

Pink Love 💗💗💗
Heute habe ich gar nicht so viel zu erzählen, meine Lieben. Wir genießen aktuell einfach unsere Woche Urlaub und versuchen, ein wenig runterzukommen vom Alltagsstress.
Heute waren wir nur beim Training, wir haben die Dachterrasse weiter eingerichtet und ich habe ein paar Wege erledigt. Unter anderem war ich bei DM, wo ich entdeckt habe, dass es meinen Selbstbräuner (den ich sonst bei Amazon bestellen musste) jetzt auch zum gleichen Preis gibt 😍😍😍. In meiner Story habe ich übrigens eine Umfrage gemacht, ob ich euch einmal zeigen soll, wie ich ihn immer auftrage und was ihr dabei besonders beachten solltet, damit alles gut geht. Falls euch das interessiert, stimmt gerne mal ab, dann kommt bald eine Story dazu.
So, jetzt wünsche ich euch allen noch einen schönen Abend. 💗💗💗

Feeling so good at the moment for being back on track 🥰🙌🏻! Me and Alex got to the gym with only 40mins to get a leg workout in this morning so I set up a circuit 🥵.
I always set something up like this when i’m low on time! I keep the weight pretty low and the reps high - We did:
▪️15 deadlifts (we used 60kg)
(30 seconds rest)
▪️15 hamstring curls (I used a dumbbell and a bench but you can use a machine)
(30 seconds rest)
▪️walking lunges till failure
(1 minute rest then repeat the whole circuit 4-5 times 💀💀💀)
Don’t underestimate this one okay cus I almost puked up breakfast 😂🙌🏻
Outfit is @gymsharkwomen vital seamless top and energy+ seamless leggings💜

Quick late night leg workout tonight. Top sets of box squats with 315 for sets of 8-10 reps (final set shown). Followed these with standing leg curls supersetted with leg extensions, and seated calf raises. Nothing too crazy since I was short on time and my back was already previously killing me. Due for a chiropractic adjustment soon. Finished off the night with lots of stretching and playing around with some poses for absolutely no reason at all other then taking a couple post workout selfies 🤣. Oh well, don't care 🤷♂️. Time for bed so goodnight everyone. ✌💪🤘👊🛌 __________________________________________
1. Toes are aligned (If one foot is slightly forward of the other, the pelvis will follow 👎)
2. Squat down (Make sure that your knees feel happy with the depth of your squat, if not, bring the squat position up a little higher.) 3. Shift the weight BACK to the heels 🦶
(Don’t frontload the knees with weight by leaning too much toward the toes...shift the weight back). 4. Try using the foot bar on a low setting to track the knee of the stabilizing leg. Keep the stabilizing leg against the foot bar during carriage movement.
5. Without changing the feet, think of your knees as rotating slightly outward. This will activate stabilization at the hip, and help prevent knees from falling inward during movement.
OK, NOW you are ready to move that carriage, just keep everything that you worked so hard to setup exactly as it is during movement! 😅
THRUST HEAVY. No need to complicate it. Check my "glute workout" highlight for my full workouts!!! 🍑🔥😈

IMPROVE YOUR ROMANIAN DEADLIFT!
Follow @gym_fit_union -
What’s up, Achievers?! @jasonlpak here with a quick drill to help you with your Romanian Deadlifts (RDLs)! RDLs are an excellent exercise to really target the posterior chain (your back, glutes, and hamstrings). Unlike a conventional deadlift where your hips are positioned slightly lower and your knees slightly more forward, the RDL really encourages a posterior weight shift and minimal forward motion of the knees.
This requires a really strong hip hinge position, and if you’re relatively new to RDLs it might be difficult to tell whether or not you’re hinging back far enough. This is where the box or bench RDL comes into play:
1️⃣Set up with your feet about hip width apart with your feet either straight ahead or slightly flared out
2️⃣Position yourself so that the back of your knees are about an inch or two in front of a box or bench
3️⃣Grab a barbell with your arms about shoulder width apart and bend your knees about 20 degrees
4️⃣Shift your weight back, push your knees out, and lean your torso forward to counterbalance
5️⃣Keep the bar really close to your legs and try to make contact with the backs of your knees on the bench at the very bottom of the movement.
The bench helps give you the feedback needed to really understand whether or not you’re shifting your weight far enough back during the RDL, and really targeting the glutes and hamstrings. We hope this post helped you out! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles ✌️💙💪!
Contrary to popular belief, I do actually wear normal human clothes sometimes 😂 -
Lately, my hypothyroidism has been kicking my booty like no other. I’ve been feeling super tired and motivated and lemme tell ya, it sucks.
Now, I could sit here and mope around and feel sorry for myself because of my condition, but I choose to do something about it and fight back against my obstacles. -
As I said, this past week or so has been pretty challenging, but tomorrow ya girl is getting back into the swing of things and getting closer to her fitness goals. MARK. MY. WORDS.
Do you and I have the same body type and fitness goals? Probably not. So why should we use the same protein? We shouldn’t! Just like we all should have custom workout plans, we should also have custom nutrition plans. That’s why I appreciate @gainful! Gainful formulates a protein powder specific to your goals and needs. You take a short quiz and their registered dietician suggests the perfect protein blend for you. Then it gets shipped directly to your door 🤗. Super easy and very effective. I feel stronger, learner, and more energized than before. I encourage you all to give Gainful a try and please DM me with any questions that you have. Do you like things to be customized to your needs? #strongNfit
Never done this sort of pic before (backside one 😬 ) so little nervous about posting 😂 but hey ho I am proud of my gains so here you goooo 😜😁
Water retention be GONE 💪 a week off fitness and a few weeks of over eating for the amount of movement I was doing made me gain a teeny bit of water retention. Consequently I’ve ensured I’ve been in a negative calorie balance the past few days to bring me back to normal. Not cutting down crazy amounts, just slightly. Happy with how it’s going so far. Just taken these pictures to mark the point I am at now and happy with it. I feel fit and strong at the moment 😀😀😀 .
I’ve started running again and feel awesome for it. Mixing more cardio again into my routine is making me feel fab! My cardiovascular fitness was starting to decline a bit from all the weights so need to pick it back up and not feel so out of breathe doing it 😂😂 .
Cardio today is Zumba tonight, can’t wait... just hope it’s a busy one because I’m ready to go crazyyyyy 🤗💃💃👯♀️ #progress#myjourney
Unrolling cable row, giving that nice stretch in the lats. Today was a fun workout because I had so much energy 🤪 and it's always nice when my body is fully recovered. 🙌 As of right now I train three days out of the week. And even though that has been working very well for me I have been wanting to change that to four and see how that feels.
