Check out this great post from @pinupgirlathletics “The beginning is the most important part of the work.” – Plato For most people, the most difficult step is the first one, which usually involves committing to an exercise routine or quitting unhealthy habits. Much like anything else, the more you do something, the easier it becomes and eventually develops into a habit. Many people claim that once exercise becomes a habit, life is not the same without it because exercising makes them feel so good. 💪💪 . . ➡️ Follow:♀️ @pinupgirlathletics ♀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wednesdaymotivation#startgym#starttraining#yesterdayyousaidtomorrow#wednesdayworkout Tag @new.new.york to be featured!

I was so incredibly excited to step into the scales this morning and see that number creep under 60kg!! Weigh in of 59.8kg, a total loss of 3.7kg since starting 5 weeks ago!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I know to some this might not seem like a huge number, but I have been struggling to get back under 60kg for the past 4 years, so I'm so happy to say that I've finally done it!!! Also it's just reassurance that what I'm doing is actually working, after having 2 weeks of a minimal loss followed by a gain. Long story short #trusttheprocess 💪🥳
What’s a dream without a team!! 🙌🏼 Thank you @nedbankrunningclub for hosting us last night at the Nedbank CGA Time Trial - We had a blast and hope that we will keep seeing so many runners every Wednesday at George Lea Sport Grounds for some #runfun ! 🎯🐎🔥 #lovetorun#nedbankrunningclub#greenzebras 📸Pic: @sub.two
I run Mount Davidson every single Wednesday. It’s like clock work ⏰. At the peak I hit 50 pike push-ups & 50 bench push-ups. Then I run back home... #wednesdayroutine Music by @a1thedopestfr @tuckthathang
Heavy focus on eccentric (with gravity) progressions today on the vertical pulling series. Once again, quality beats quantity since gravity is involved applying slightly more force due to a slower tempo on these progressions. Today, the two exercises showcased are: 1) Band Assisted Pull Up 2) Eccentric Focused Pull Up Build vertical pulling strength with gravity is critical to controlling reps and not just flailing around on the bar without a clear focus. These progressions can be a bit harder, so focus on building baseline strength in vertical pulling and horizontal pulling first before tackling these head on. Thanks to everyone checking this out for the love and support because I truly appreciate it. Any questions/comments leave them in the post below or send me a message. Check back Friday for another post in the vertical pulling series and have a great Wednesday night. #verticalpulling#wednesdayworkout#eccentricfocus#sisu#inomniaparatus#bettereveryday#destroymediocrity#unassistedpullup#bestrongstaystrong#neversettleforaverage#lifelonglearning#humble2019#growthmindset
#wednesdayworkout Training legs mid-week has been so much rewarding since last 3 weeks. I would 90% of the time miss leg sessions when I had planned to train them on weekends, didn’t have much time today but was enough to get a 30min complete #legday Squats Swiss ball Hamstring curl Hip thrust with a #miniband for more Glute activation And the finisher with 30 jump in & out squats and 20 plyo lunges. #functionaltraining

Want to workout anywhere? 🏋️♂️ If you’re like me and you like to change things up with your fitness program, try using resistance bands!! Here’s 4 moves - 2 upper and 2 lower - using resistance bands to make either a bodyweight exercise more difficult or simply adding new exercises to your bodyweight routine! You can do push ups, squats, deadlifts, rows, curls, extensions, etc. using #resistancebands. Basically anything you can do with a bar or a dumbbell you can do with bands.
Here’s a peek into one of my favorite semi-private fitness sessions. Be warned! This is tough. These two amazing women make it look easy. This exercise will firm, lift and sculpt your behind and thighs in one exercise. Dynamic Plié with furniture sliders. No need to spend extra $ from fitness websites. This is my favorite accessory. Goal: 3 minutes on each side. Remember to keep -shoulders square to mirror as you slide your moving leg around into a deep pile keeping the working/stationary leg aligned with front wall/mirror and protect your knee by not letting it reach past your ankle. -abs pull into spine, shoulders relaxed, chin up. -if you would like to add a little oblique work, follow your moving foot with your head. -Try to do this 3-4 x a week and you will notice a difference in your booty shape and your 🦵🏼strength! #strongwomen#bootyfordays#beautifulwomen#strongisbeautiful#stayasstrongasyoucan#foraslongasyoucan
