Started my first week of tracking in a caloric deficit this week💯 Weighed in on Monday around 205lbs so let’s call that the starting point and as I expected there was a drastic change in weight essentially over night as I went from eating intuitively to a more regimented approach but that’s all balanced out now 😇 The 🔑 to fat loss is to understand that IT IS NOT LINEAR ❌ One needs to understand that it’s all about how your body is changing over time ⏩ Even if you’re hitting your macros everyday you might not weigh in lighter each day due to numerous factors e.g Sleep,stress, time of your last meal, sodium intake etc.🙌🏻 .
I’ve received some great feedback from the video stories and I appreciate everybody who’s gotten onto me!♥️ I was thinking of potentially recording some sit-down videos discussing various topics in the fitness industry (within my knowledge 😉) so let me know if that’s something that would be appealing!💪🏻
SPRING BREAK IS 4 WEEKS AWAY!! Ahh so exciting! After the start of this semester I could use a break! Some much needed rest and relaxation with my guy @sir_kenworthy.
Instead of relaxing at the beach I’ll be cooped up in Pennsylvania eating my way through the state! But until then the grind is real. Go to the gym and CELEBRATE all that your body can do. The gym should never ever be a punishment for what you ate. So what you had a cookie? Was it good? Yeah i bet it was! Go to the gym to push yourself to the limit and congratulate your body on the movements it is able to produce and give you the life you wanna live.
SWIPE to see my killer arm workout to start my Friday!
When prep gets tough...
This past week has been rough...like really rough.
Under 8 weeks out from show day, and we’ve had to dig a little bit this week. Cardio was increased, and some carb cycling was introduced to really give my body a push. For three days straight now we’ve been on 1700 calories, which for me is VERY LOW.
The fatigue set in hard yesterday, with my legs feeling like lead and hunger at an all time high. There were moments throughout the day where I questioned if I could stick it out, but I did my best to shove those feelings quickly to the side.
As hard as this is, and as hard as it will continue to get, I know the end result will be worth it. A bodybuilding prep is very hard to explain to people who haven’t gone through it. There is so much more to it than simply eating the food and doing the workouts.
This s*** ain’t easy, but it’s part of the process.
Tomorrow marks 7 weeks out from @thecobourgnaturals and I’m ready to finish this prep strong and step on stage MY BEST!🙌
Get after these upper body gains bayyybee 💪🏽. I have been so unmotivated lately, it’s probs the weather - I swear seasonal depression is realllllllllll. Anyone else feel this way when the weather comes around? I just want to hibernate 🐻. Anyways I took some time to deload and it was amazing. My body is recovered and I’m READY. A deload week is when you don’t lift as heavy or do as much in the gym, basically just staying active while In a restful state. I’ve been bulking (this video is not recent) and I’m in an uncomfortable position right now where my weight is not proportioned throughout my body. This is when I know I’m going to make the most gains because I can pick and choose where I want to focus putting that weight to. I am at 131lbs rn still have about 7lbs more to put on. I lift very heavy, and do legs 3 days a week, each day 5-7 minutes of abs to shed my stomach fat. I do 1 day of arms, back and chest as I don’t do much of any of them on a regular basis.
Being late is one of my biggest pet peeves! ⏰
#1 of the “10 things that require ZERO talent:” Be On Time!
Your time is extremely valuable.
And it’s equally valuable to those whom you have a responsibility to.
So don’t waste each others time.
Account for traffic, parking, missing the first bus, time to get ready, etc.
Also, plan on arriving 15-20 min early...there’s always things you can get done on your phone if you do find yourself arriving early.
Be. On. Time.
It’s Friday and you only got 30 minutes in the gym? Smash out this arm finisher. 4 sets, 12 reps with 30/45 seconds rest after the tri set.
Tri set- hammer curls/overhead extension/close grip press
Tri set 2- reverse grip pull down/ chin ups/ close grip push up.
Absolute Burner if your short on time!
Happy Friday👏 Hope you all made some great plans for the weekend❗️If you are getting wasted tonight let me give you some quick quick tips if you want to minimize ‘damage’ and maximise the creation of amazing memories😂
1️⃣. Cut down on your calories throughout the day before you’re going to drink. 1 gram of Alcohol contains 9 calories and therefore drinking a lot on top of your normal food intake can result in additional fat gain🙏🏻
2️⃣. Eat plenty of fruit & vegetables so your body has sufficient nutrients in its body before you putting in the liquids. I would stick to lean protein sources combined with fruit & vegetables without🍏🍌🍒🍇 3️⃣. Stick to hard liquors as this has multiple benefits. The first one is that it contains less calories than beers and wines as hard liquors are often pure alcohol without too much added sugars and syrups. The 2nd benefit is that you get drunk quicker without a crazy full belly which you have after you drink a lot of beer🤓 3rd one is that everyone likes shots. Do make sure that there is enough money on your bank account especially when you go out in London😭
4️⃣. ENJOY YOUR NIGHT. Please do not count how much you are drinking. How many beers, wodkas, calories etc etc. It drives you nuts. Just enjoy your night and have a good time without thinking of your gains for once in a while. Helps to clear the mind now and then and create some fun memories with your friends👏🙌 -

Good to see waist coming in and as bodyfat drops it’s good to see the weaker areas which require improvement. Tomorrow marks 12 weeks till show day. I’m giving this 110% no matter what. ———————————————
Happy weekend to you all 👊🏻
Продолжаю изучать анатомию, здесь я тренировал соотношение объемов в разных положениях, как себя ведут мышечные объёмы. Решил показать ещё в цвете, чтобы глаз привык к цвету кожи, сейчас я буду продолжать изучать анатомию и постараюсь каждый день выкладывать процесс изучения 😁👨💻✍️✍️✍️👍
A regular #aerialyoga#yogatrapeze practice improves Upper Body Strength and Grip Strength and those gains can then be transfered back to the mat or as seen here other activities. Feel yourself getting stronger and who knows where that can take you. The skies the limit just remember to Hang Out!!!! #daretofly#yoga@baseblocks
