SWIPE ➡️➡️➡️ WEEK 2: READINESS TRIALS ••• Week 1 was a really rough week. Caught a flu last weekend which I’m still recovering from and if I remember correctly last Tuesday my fever went up 103 degrees. The readiness trials is a 12 week transformation so as of right now I’m not yet worried about fat loss (Even though I have a lot of fat to lose lol) but more worried about achieving my max amount of muscle to start my diet with. Doesn’t matter who the hell you are when you diet you WILL lose lean mass so having a high starting point is important. I will probably start dieting at the 9 week or 8 week mark so right now I guess I am still “bulking”. Even though I was sick this week I never missed meals and never skipped a workout, trying to keep my body anabolic through this flu. I try to keep my attitude positive and like to brainwash myself that the more difficult the start is the more beautiful the end will be. Cheers to week 2! ••• Week 1: 202lbs Week 2: 205lbs Height: 6ft/182cm ••• Training Split (6 day split) Monday: Shoulders Tuesday: Back Wednesday: Quads Thursday: Chest Friday: Hamstrings Saturday: Arms Sunday: Rest *Abs 3 times a week* ••• Macros Protein: 300g Carbs: 200g Fat: 70g Cheat meal every Sunday ••• Cardio (I use incline walk) 0 min fasted 30 min post workout ••• Supplement stack 1.

Great leg day today! #legdayworkout . . . I’ve been focusing on compound lifts to increase strength. . 1️⃣ Sumo deadlift: 5 x 8 2️⃣ Romanian Deadlift: 4 x 10 3️⃣ Hip Thrust 4 x 10 4️⃣ Reverse Hack Squat: 4 x 7 5️⃣ Smith machine lunges: 3 x 10 (each leg) 6️⃣ Supersets 3 x 10: Bent Leg Kickback Straight Leg Kickback Side Kick
Good mornings on the power squat 😤 Always working on the 🍑, keeping it high and tight 👀This movement is similar to the Romanian deadlift but less pressure/engagement on the traps. For first few years when I started weight lifting, I deadlifted using my traps so no they're strong AF 😅Trying hard to not engage them while doing my 🍑movements to really focus on developing the glutes!
🌿 There are common misconceptions about Pilates workouts so I’m excited to share with you all things Pilates! It’s not all about stretching and breathing (though that is probably my favourite part). Pilates is also great for improving posture, strengthening your upper and lower body, toning muscles, preventing injuries, and building a stronger core 💪🏼
How are you with your 2019 New Years goals?? My two biggest goals were positivity and making a more consistent healthier lifestyle. It’s definitely a constant reminder lol! Comment below on your goalzzz 🌟
