Fasted training this morning to get the day started. Some days I feel weak when I train fasted and others are not so bad. Just listen to your body on the amount of weight to pull. Today was tough but I pushed through. Don’t let the low energy days beat you. Once it’s all said and done you’ll be happy you didn’t skip the gym!
The worst decision you can make in life is no decision. 🤷♀️
As I’ve grown up I have realised the only decision you will ever regret are the things you never did. It doesn’t matter if things ‘go wrong’, if you have confidence in being able to make them right, or grow from the experience. ❤️ Never make a decision based on fear, money or lack of experience. You’ll find a way if that’s where your heart lies.
————— Excited about the rest of this year 🙈🙈🙈🎊💐
Setbacks. Adversity. Everyday you have an opportunity to channel that energy and experience from setbacks and adversity into something more. Get to the gym, get that energy out through some hard weight training, a HIIT workout, heavy bag work, tire flips, or kettlebell swings till you want to quit and drop. Get up and squat till your legs want to fail, deadlift like a god. Rest. Then, do it again 3-4 more rounds. Make the habit sticky in your mind. You've just pushed the reset button for your mind and day and possibly life because you're choosing a stronger healthy response to life. What's your excuse? You're at work? Workout at lunch. No time at lunch? Take a 15 minute break and go to the work gym. No gym at work? Find a gym nearby. No gym nearby? Change into workout clothes do burpees, push-ups, air squats, and lunges. Can't do that yet? Go outside and walk hard. Ask yourself like, “how can I get a quick effective workout in, write down some exercises, prioritize and execute them. It's never too late to start. Once your mind is clear, attack the next goal, whether it's in your personal or professional life, keep that momentum going. Don't stop.
Light squats, pullups, rows, bicep curls, crunches, triceps, shrugs, quick jogs. Included some supersets to keep the intensity level higher with 45 second to 1 min rests.
Back Attack! 🏋🏽♀️ _____________________________________________________________
WHY IS BACK TRAINING IMPORTANT?
Your back muscles are involved in just about every activity you do each day, from the moment you wake up til you close your eyes. For instance, Most of us sit all day long at work or drive for hours or sit in class or even how we use our phone too. Our shoulders tend to roll forward. Its important to train your back muscles for good posture, and that they're strong enough to handle all that work.
I don’t have the proper posture all the time for I am too busy to notice or should I say I’m not really bothered about my posture. However, I make sure that I incorporate Back workout on my weekly workout schedule atleast 2x per week. I have 1 day for Heavy set and 1 day for mobilization and light set. Makes my back muscle remember to keep it upright most of the time. #musclememory 😆
Also, Make sure you take care of your spine and your body! I’m so glad I have found @drmeccafayad to help me fix my problems and adjust what needs to be adjusted on my spine. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Absolute shoulder burnout in this mornings session 💪🏼🔥 I love training shoulders almost as much as I love back day 🙌🏻 this is only half of the exercises from today’s session but I always aim for 12-15 reps on each exercise and repeat 3/4 times 👊🏻
Shoulder press - 12/15 reps X 3 (up the weight with each set if you can)
Single shoulder press - 12 reps each side x 3 (again up the weight with each set if you can)
Seated shoulder flys - 12/15 reps x 3
Standing shoulder flys - 12/15 reps x 3 (watch the struggle at the end 😂🙈) Sports bra @sportfxcosmetics leggings @neuapparel
