GETTING STRONGERRRR 😈
Put up 185 for a double on OHP yesterday. Had a third in me but I knew it would be a grinder rep and as I learned before... I didn’t want to risk straining my neck for what was already a PR. Getting stronger and lifting heavier, lower reps on Overhead Press has been crucial in my shoulder development this year and I really recommend switching your focus if you are experiencing any type of plateau. ✌🏼
Your PURPOSE is the one thing that lifts you up. Your PURPOSE is the one thing that gets you up early. Your PURPOSE is the one thing that lights a fire in you. Your PURPOSE is the thing you do that makes time stop. It’s comeback season! Disappointed with where you were last summer? Well doing nothing isn’t going to change anything 😤 it changes now. You can live your dream. You can accomplish that goal. Let people laugh at your dreams. It’s your responsibility to prove them wrong! LETS BE GREAT! #GymShark#Alphalete#PumpChaser#FitnessMotivation
For those of you who don't know, this year has not been the easiest. A lot of life changes, a lot of moves, a lot of emotions.
Through it all, I have been prepping for a show and my body has rejected me the whole time from only what I assume are extreme cortisol levels.
I have pushed through my body rejecting me through every change life has thrown at me even when it wasn't easy.
Show dates were pushed back MULTIPLE times to the point where the last show of the season came, and my body was far from ready.
It was extremely hard to accept it when I've worked so hard to show off my hard work but my body wasn't having it.
After running into @kristoffercox , I knew after everything that has gone on this year, I needed to do SOMETHING to show off my hard work even though I wasn't stage lean and not necessarily comfortable with some areas (like my stomach). I've learned to love every stage I'm in because there's a reason why it's called bodyBUILDING.
Can't wait to post the finals!

🌟HAPPY TUESDAY GUYS🌟
It's so important to set mini goals in order to stay on track and reach your long term goal 🙌🏻
It's so easy to loose motivation due to these cold winter nights and long days at work..! 😱 so if this is happening to you don't worry because I'm sure lots of people are in the same both including myself sometimes 🙋
Set some goals for the week and aim to complete them by the end of the week ☑️
These are some of my goals for the week 💕💕
🎀DRINK MORE WATER - I don't know about ye but I find it harder to drink water when I'm cold and I'm always cold in the winter 😂 aiming for 3-4 litres a day ..!
🎀 TRAINING- get to the gym for 5 days this week as I only went 3 last week and I'm heading to Killarney for the weekend.! 🎀FRUITS AND VEGIES - making sure I am adding a lot of colour to all my meals (micronutrients).!
🎀SLEEP- get at least 7-8 hours of sleep as I struggle to get that..! Hope this post helps some people to set goals for the week and stay motivated while doing so..! Come on guys we can do it 🙌🏻😉💪
#transformationtuesday is a slight reversal from the usual but I’m super proud! On the right is June time last year when I was pretty lean and tanned but weak as piss and could hardly think of anything but food, training was a slog and was eating around 1600 calories a day. On the left I’m up 15 pounds mainly on my legs, I’m significantly stronger and I have to remind myself to eat. 3100 calories a day helps to get that love for training back and the strength gainzzz flying 😝 sure I’ve gained some body fat but I feel great and I know I’ll be able to cut it off super easy this time! #bulkingseason
11.21.17 / Holy shit.. @mericalabz Red White and Boom is a different level. @ericablang and I’s workout was insane. Bulk mode is in full effect. Slightly lost strength in my low bar squat but will be gaining that back and will hit 405. Couldn’t get a picture of my leg pump because the mirror room was closed ☹️
You never really know what may be hidden inside #MentalHealthAwareness ..
I've accidentally completed a 'mini cut' for 5 days due to having a scary incident involving a knife in the hands of the wrong person, lucky I have the forearm strength of the gods! Time to get back on the first class carriage of the gains train 🚂 Choooo Chooooo!
No, 5 days of lower calories & no training won't ruin years/months of hard work.. Back On The Bulk! Tomorrow I will be posting every meal consumed on my Instagram story!
Which look do you prefer? •
The aesthetic look or the bulky look? Really interested in which y’all like more? I clearly enjoy the more athletic look. But, i believe in order to make some quality Gainz you have to sacrifice the shreds to pack on some muscle. Now i don’t recommend a dirty bulk, but i have a hard time saying no to food. Especially if I’m bulking. I tend to get a bit reckless lol.. anyways I can’t wait to start shedding off the extra lbs and see what improvements I’ve made. 😈
Back here I was not entirely satisfied with my condition, which was not entirely bad as it pushed me to work harder on my goals, but it’s only now, after few months have past, that I actually come to appreciate this condition.
Guess you don’t know what you have until you lose it! 😅😂 #BulkingFeels
After going through college and working with a few clients, I now understand the importance of practicality. Most people aren’t always going to be able to eat organic, gluten-free, sugar-free, and non GMO food choices. People want Chick-Fil-A once in a while, dammit. Or pizza or chocolate or ice cream.
So, instead of trying to eliminate the shitty food entirely (because that never lasts), I allow my clients to eat it in moderation and encourage a daily fiber goal. You can’t hit your daily fiber goal by just eating garbage all day.
One of the best ways to increase your fiber intake and to slowly adjust into healthier eating habits is to use my “Healthy-Unhealthy Rule.”
You can’t ever just eat a slice of pizza or a bag of chips or a piece of chocolate. If you do decide to eat one of these, you must pair it with something more nutritious: fruit, vegetables, Greek yogurt, nuts, etc.
“But doesn’t that just add more calories?”
It can. But what it’ll likely do is make you get fuller faster (so you eat less) and the fiber content will keep you fuller longer (so you eat less, overall). All while boosting your food quality and your micronutrient intake.
I’m not encouraging to just always eat terrible food and pair it with an apple to make it healthy. I’m recognizing the practicality of most people’s eating habits and offering a *healthier* alternative that will hopefully lead to a sustainable nutrition plan in the long-run.
What y’all think? I’d love to hear any thoughts or comments. Does anyone else try this or something similar? Hope it helps. 🤗

I remember being the guy on the left like it was yesterday. (Funny story in PE when we were checking Weights this girl who I thought was really hot had weighed in 10 lbs more than me... haha thats embarrassing) I was and still am a natural ecto. Meaning my frame is naturally thin and lanky. I topped out height wise at 5’9” at 15. I for sure didn’t win the genetic lottery for muscle. But I didn’t let that deter me. Limits are man made by people who don’t want to strive for improvement. And placed upon by yourself. Don’t be a “shoulda coulda would’ve guy.” Just do it. Get out there and grind!

Progressive overload 📈📈📈
🧐 When it comes to building muscle, we need to ensure that we are increasing the stimulus over time to force adaptations to occur!!
If we don’t increase the stimulus and just repeatedly provide the human body with the same workload, it will adapt originally to the initial stimulus but no further. WHAAATTTTTT!! 😫😫😫
The human body needs to be given a reason to adapt and unless this increase happens, it will do no such thing!!
How do we ensure progressive overload?
A NOTEBOOK IS KEY!! 📒🖊
Get yourself a pad and note down every workout. Each session or two try to increase the stimulus by either a rep or two, an extra set or an increase in weight!!
This way you’re keeping you body on its toes and giving it a good enough reason to adapt and build some hard earnt muscle!! 💪🏼
So what you gonna do? 🤔Add a rep?
🤔A set? 🤔Or going to push for more lbs?
You’ve got to do something otherwise the gods of hypertrophy aren’t going to bless you with those 18 inch arms anytime soon.....or bigger calves 😂
