»For some of us it’s way more than just LIFTING it’s one of the best things in life we’ve discovered and we are proud to be a part of it!« __________________________________________ #fitfam#fitspo#motivationisthekey#goals#lifting#fitfamde#photoshooting#gymgirl#competitor#blogger#ootd#streetstyle#liftheavy#unstoppable#nolimits#girlswithmuscles#fitnessblogger#stayfocused#liftheavy#focus#bodytransformation#onlygoodvibes#abs#nature#girlswholift#weightlifting#lift#stuttgart#bodybuilding#fitfamgermany
It's cold and rainy, but we've got messy bun hats and @cleanjuice wellness lattes to warm up on our Sister's Day out! • I like to come by @cleanjuicelexingtonsquare on the weekend to grab a healthy treat and load up on cold press goodness for the week ahead. • I'm currently addicted to all of the cold pressed cashew milks. I love them as creamer in my morning coffee. My sister is giving the golden cashew milk a try this week! • Have you tried your local Clean Juice yet? When you do, make sure to download the Clean Juice app. It will give you $5 off your first order! Tag me and let me know what you try when you come by!
We went through some frustrations today learning footwork and foot placement.. but she learned not to bring her feet together and a little rhythm..

One of the smartest thing I've heare in a while were the words of @olychad when he explained that positions need to be overly strong so they can be effective under heavy load - 🏋️ This makes soo much sense, especially for me. All my PRs look really easy because I have to be ridiculously strong in all the positions to feel confident. The snatch is the perfect example. Gotta pull at least 10% more with a very good elevation, positions and speed to make me ready for that full lift - 🏋️ Another thing I'd add to the discussion is that having a lot of reps uder your belt at higher percentages really helps. I talked about it a while back. When you hit X weight for the first time it's mostly sloppy, lacking confidence and intent. The 5th time you hit it, even though your PR/absolute strength are the same it feels a lot better. You felt that weight move, you know how to move with it, you know the timing, lastly you have the confidence of hitting it previously - 🏋️ This 110kg/242lbs was stupidly easy. I've hit it only once before yet my pull got a lot better, my posterior stronger, which resulted in an effortless lift to match a serious PR
I suck at wall balls, I suck at rowing. So yeah, 19.1 was a great workout for me: AMRAP15 19 wall balls 19 cal row LOL I have to say, it was even harder than I thought I’d be, but I also did not as bad as I thought I would. My goal was to move well throughout and to not break up my wall balls more than twice. Almost hit the second goal - video (🎥 @javi_lozded) shows me in my second last round not feeling my legs anymore. I ended up doing 6 rounds + 9 wall balls, which I guess is quite okay. At least I feel like I tried my best but I also never wanna do this again, EVER. #hiitssteph
More fuel. More strength. . Sometimes we find ourselves in a plateau, especially when it comes to weightlifting. We might increase our weights but we simply can't lift them or lifting them with bad form. In previous posts I mentioned you can still get strong and be lean over time. Yes that is true if you do a lot of volume training, providing that your diet is good. But after some time of dieting and weight training, you may start to see yourself becoming leaner with great results. This was something I went through as well. It felt good at one point but it wasn't my goal. My goal was to get stronger and build some muscle mass. If you notice that you are losing strength, then we have look at why we are losing strength. One of the reasons why you're plateauing is You're not eating enough calories. Just like anything, your body needs fuel to perform various day to day activities including exercises. Without the right amount calories, you will not perform very well in exercises like weightlifting. Let's not be confused with the caloric surplus bit. I'm not encouraging you to eat over your TDEE. As you do more weight training with heavy weights, as well as your cardio exercises, your TDEE will gradually be higher because you're creating more caloric burn or after burn from lifting weights. This allows you to consume more calories to fuel the body and to help it perform better. But your caloric intake should still be below your TDEE, so you won't have to worry about gaining fat. #fitness#gymlife#gymtime#fitnessmotivation#dedication#active#strength#gymmotivation#gymshark#positivemind#willpower#workout#postoftheday#instagramfitness#training#healthylifestyle#cleaneating#nutrition#bodybuilding#weightlifting#buildmuscle#cardio#tdee#exercises#fitnesstips#fitnessmodel#gymaddict#gymexercises#goals#progress

3x5 Box jumps. Most the time people only focus on strength & hypertrophy. There is little emphasis in power production in most people’s programs. But why? Not everyone understands that power production will increase the ability to shift the force velocity curve to the right, which means we are producing more force at higher velocities. Overall rate coding & synchronization can be enhanced by power training once you’ve adopted a higher force production. If you power lift, this’ll transfer over to your heavier sets moving faster. In non weight baring sports it will help increase speed & jump height.
Size isn’t everything when it comes to safely lifting weights. How often have you been to the gym and seen someone struggling to push out a rep, contorting their bodies into elaborate dance moves to squeeze the muscle? Technique is important for long term gain. Start small with a weight you can achieve a full range of movement with, then work on adding more kilos as your strength improves.

It’s amazing how attached you get to a gym. The goals that you’ve made and the sweat that you dropped, a gym is more than a gym. It’s a place to help get yourself where it needs to be. It could be a therapy place for you or it could be a place to just get in your zone and kill it. There are always goals to be made when you step in there. Everyone has a different goal, what’s yours?
The way the event works is Police Officers, Firefighters, and First Responders perform 4 different lifts. Each participant has 4 attempts to get the highest weight for each and then the max is added for the total amount. So, If a participant lifts a 1200 pound total, then we ask that individual’s sponsor give $12.00 to the chosen charity. The four lifts are squat, bench press, deadlift and overhead press.
