*HOW TO GET OPTIMAL* @skiman.factual.fitness
Haha, had a lot of fun with this one, like you can't tell.
So lets talk about being optimal. What is optimal to you? To me is getting in as much as possible in a very little time, being able to perform and not waste time on needless activities. It's time to get to work brothers and sisters #motivationmondayonatuesday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So with that being sad lets talk about what not to do so we can make the best of what time we have on this planet.
-Not sure how this is not a waste of time but why compare yourselves to someone that wont be or ever be the same genetically as you. There's no reason, just focus on your goals, head down and keep on pounding son!
2) Adrenaline fatigue
-If you aren't feeling good from over stimulation from pre-workouts and having to rely on these items in order to get the job done at the end, then how else are you going to get the endorphin high from "feeling good" from an optimal workout, fitness is to enhance your life not drain it.
3) No energy
-Running on fumes is no bueno. In order to make the most of your workouts you have be able to progress and there's no progressing if you aren't able to push yourself to new levels.
4) Erasing progress
-Erasing your progress only to start it all over again. Definitely not optimal to your goals and you'll keep spinning your wheels, looking the same year after year.
5) Mindless entertainment
-TV, oh boy, in my opinion if you are to watch something for hours wouldn't you benefit from something educational or better options is to read self improvements books, explore art galleries. Enjoy the outdoors, perhaps active hike, get that TDEE up!
If you've made it this far THANK YOU and please comment below "OPTIMAL" as it helps me to see that I'm making a difference in your fitness goals. As always have a great day, I hope this helps you out in your fitness journeys! --Ski
I wish I was bigger. Lol. Paused my workout for almost 2 months. Gained a few fat and lost a few muscles. Begin again to have a better lifestyle, live as a stronger and more productive human being. 😊
That's the holiday over with after eating and drinking as much as I want, when ever I wanted and lots of random stuff all together. Think I'm going back to the gym and back to cutting again. Summer has only just begun. 💪🤜🤛✌🏋️♂️ #cutting#diet#cutcarbs#gymlife#physique#biceps#leanmuscle
Hello IG. I’m sorry I have been MIA lately. I needed to take a little time off to recoup myself and take a little social media cleanse for awhile. With that being said, I am back and ready to share my new training regimen.
Here is some full transparency for ya. As you can see, I’m not nearly as lean as I was back in beginning of March. But One of the best parts of Health and fitness is learning about our bodies. Seeing what does and doesn’t work to accomplish specific goals. As most of you have seen, I had great results following @krisgethin #hct2 I then followed 8 weeks of his muscle building trainer but stopped there because I wanted to lean out after adding 18 pounds in 8 weeks. Now, I have been sitting at 205-207 for 3 weeks. So, naturally, I’m taking on a new challenge; @thenickholt #fastingmethod
It is my first week and day 2 of the diet. I am combining this with the workouts from hct2 as we as adding some of my own in the mix sometimes. My cardio will only be once a day since I am new to fasting and on a strict calorie deficit immediately. I am well aware There will be challenges for me on this. But that’s the glory of it all. I will get to see what does and does not work and can adapt to my bodies needs to accomplish my goals!
Starting numbers: 207.2lbs 17.8% BF
We have 5 weeks to our cruise and I gotta switch things up. Lately I've been getting a little bored with my workouts and if I don't make a change, I'm going to run the risk of getting lazy and falling off track. Ahhhhhh!!! Pulling out the workout bench and challenging myself! 👇
👇 ✳️DUMBBELL CHEST FLY (7.5 pounds- 15 reps, 12.5 pounds- 12 reps, 17.5 pounds - 8 reps) ✳️INCLINE DUMBBELL PRESS (10 pounds- 15 reps, 12.5 pounds- 12 reps, 15 pounds - 8 reps) ✳️PARTIAL CHEST FLY (7.5 pounds- 15 reps, 10 pounds- 12 reps, 12.5 pounds - 8 reps) ✳️IN AND OUT
In February I will be branching my services outside of just teaching and 1-1 strength and movement coaching into focused nutritional planning for students.
I will only be adding 3 more new students to my current base, so I can concentrate on delivering a quality service.
Why choose me?
Firstly I’m one of the top female bikini athletes in the Uk, competing year in year out for 5 seasons Internationally. So I understand how and what it takes to control my body through diet and exercise. Both in season and off season. What’s achievable and what’s not. I have learnt through mistakes, trial and error and have worked with some of the best nutrition experts in the business. I will tell you now holding a 6 pack 365 is pretty impossible.
Secondly, like most females, I’ve had body image issues that I have been able to conquer through mindset and study. Major health problems that I have managed and defeated through correct nutiontional guidance and implementation.
Thirdly and most importantly my passion and attention to detail for success in this field will shine through in those I work with. I hope my competition success demonstrates that. My love of healthy cooking, paleo lifestyle, food blogging and growing organic food is present in my planning and delivery of simple, no BS strategies to getting people results. In both their body composition, health and happiness.
I’m excited to extend this to working with several more people. So if that’s you. Drop me a message to book in for a consultation.
