❌It’s NOT just about calories in vs. calories out❌ This statement probably goes against what you’ve been told... But if it were that simple, wouldn’t you have already gotten the results you were looking for 🤔 While the theory of calories in vs calories out is scientifically valid... It’s an oversimplified AND ineffective approach. Let me explain 👇🏼 ❕While calories are important, what your body ACTUALLY needs are nutrients❕ Ever been in a situation where your stomach is full, yet you’re not satiated? Like you’re STILL hungry even though you know you ate more than enough food? The reason why this happens is because while you consumed enough calories, those calories were NOT made up of the nutrients your body needed. As a result, your body response is to ask for MORE until it gets what it needs. This is the same reason why it’s possible to eat an entire package of oreos and still find yourself wanting more… Anyone? 🙋♀️ The truth is-yes, a caloric deficit is necessary to lean out, lose those inches and get rid of stubborn fat. HOWEVER what you’re eating and the quality of your food is arguably MORE important. (especially if you’re looking to optimize your process 😉) This is one of the reasons I implement tracking macros when I first start working with a client. Focusing on macros not only helps with staying on track But also helps ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs 🌈 Remember babe, the most effective AND sustainable way to get the results you want is through working WITH your body, not against it ✨ What is the number one nutrition question you have? Let me know below and I’ll comment back a solution 💕
Starting off this 8-week cycle back-to-back-to-back PRs🎉🎉 ▪️ 200 in any form of clean was a mental block for me, so today was pretty special that I was able to break that block 3️⃣ times. ▪️ 200 🔴because I was distracted by the front door opening (directly in front of me) 200✔️ 205✔️ 210✔️ like wtf!? I’m still shocked by that one. It’s safe to say my legs are finally catching up with my upper body🤘🏽 @kimchia5 @joeygranieri @mikelongobardo Being my cheerleaders today 🤗 ————————————————— @alexuslar @mbslingshot @doughnutsanddeadlifts @wodndone @adidas
This was a week before I stepped on stage. Still be able to repping 315lbs on my deadlift with bw at 153lbs. I’m really happy that I was still able to do that, especially when it close to the show. That was definitely my all PR at that bw. Now it’s timefor me to gain all my strength back and start to get even stronger than my last bulk. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Operation get lean 2018 was partially a success, due in no part to training hard or eating clean. It was all gummy bears, 2% milk, doughnuts, and cinnabons.🥞🍩🍦 Not a single tilapia, orange roughy, asparagus, cauliflower rice, cauliflower crust, nor paleo anything was consumed as part of this years production. I did not do ANY cardio other than normal weekend and after work activities; NO time on stairmaster, elliptical, etc. Bodyweight dropped to a low of 215 (should have been lower), and slowly crept back up to hover around 222lbs. Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with this level of conditioning that I managed to maintain while enjoying desserts and any other treats to get me to an average of 100g fat and 400g carbs per day. TONS of food. Here's to someday dieting down and doing cardio and possibly doing better but for now, I'm happy. #mensphysique#delts#abs#fitfam#fitspo#classicphysique#npcmensphysique#macros#flexibledieting#iifym#pumpkindelts#malemodel#underwearmodel#l4like#f4f
My biggest mistake in my early years of training glutes...no lateral movements! To make it simple, i was doing all up/down motions such as squats, leg press, lunges...i started incorporating lateral movements where I’m kicking/pushing/pressing out to the side and I’ve noticed a works of a difference . . . Here’s a couple of my exercises from today. First and last i like to use as supersets with no weight just the band . . . Fueled by the best! @blackstonelabs_official
Muita gente fica há anos treinando e percebe que mesmo dedicando tanto tempo indo à academia os resultados não aparecem, ou são mínimos comparados com pessoas que frequentam a muito menos tempo. Mas você já parou pra pensar que muitas vezes essa falta de resultados satisfatórios está ligada à alguns hábitos que muitas vezes passam despercebidos? - Destaco os 3 principais que mais vejo por aí hoje: - 1) Distração com celular: pessoas fazendo selfie, stalkeando a(o) crush, viajando nas redes sociais, falando groselha no whatsapp... - 2) Bate-papo: aquela conversa fiada na academia como se estivesse num barzinho. Botando o papo em dia e esquecendo da vida (e do que está fazendo na academia). - 3) Desorganização: chegar na academia e aí sim inventar o que vai treinar, escolhendo na hora o que tá livre ou não, fazendo o que dá. - Quem sou eu pra ditar regra do que cada um deve fazer, né não? Mas uma coisa tem que ser levada em conta: o horário do treino pra quem tem um objetivo deve ser levado a sério, com foco e atenção pra vencer seus próprios limites e dar estímulos intensos o suficiente pra modificar seu corpo. - Nos tempos de hoje ficar longe do celular muitas vezes se torna impossível, mas tenha controle na hora de treinar, celular só pra ouvir música ou alguma emergência! - Encontrar amigos e conhecidos na academia é ótimo, mas deixe pra conversar depois que terminou seu treino, todos saem felizes. - Sempre tenha em mente o que vai fazer na academia, chegar pra ver no que dá, além de te fazer perder muito tempo, não trará resultados consistentes. - E aí, conhece alguém que deveria avaliar estes 3 hábitos muito comuns que acabam sabotando desempenho e resultados? Comenta aí!
