Curious to know what your Inspiration is in life. What wakes you up at night. What excites you to get the day started. What makes you throw aside excuses and get the job done. ⠀
I found my motivation through sports. I have a passion to be better than I was yesterday. I am a highly competitive person and I can’t stand not progressing and getting better. If I ever seem like I’m not proud of my accomplishments it’s only because I expect great things for me. I won’t settle for less. I am worth the pain and struggle in the gym. I am worth the early mornings and late nights. I invest in me. A goal of mine is to have no regrets in life. No regrets means pushing my body to its absolute limits everyday in the gym and life. ⠀
Where does your passion come from?⠀
The definition of determination, resilience and grit - This woman right here. 👆🏼
Top 10 finish in The Open and on her way to the Pacific Regional less than a year after giving birth to her son. Her hard work has definitely paid off. 💪🏼
If you don’t already head over and give @katelin_marks a follow. 📲
The UndergroundRX Crew is behind you all the way! 🎉
This year has been an opportunity to really dial in on what I want. A goals based approach with a measurable outcome. We adopt a similar approach with all our members at @ppshq_morley. If you don’t have purpose then how can you justify what your doing? What is the end goal? What is the outcome? Without the small steps, the big leaps seem out of reach. 💭
Let’s talk about protein
Protein is a macronutrient whose main function is to build a repair body structures and tissues. It can also help provide energy if fat and carbohydrates are absent, it is the last source to be relied on.
Protein is made up of amino acids that are linked by peptide bonds and there are two generic types of aminos: essential and nonessential. Essential amino acids are not manufactured in our body or are made in insufficient amounts. Because of this, it’s important to derive them from food sources. Nonessential aminos are able to be made in the body from dietary nitrogen and bits of fat and carbohydrate.
Another type is semiessential. Arginine and histidine are the two that fall under this category because of their effect on synthesis in the body.
If a food source contains all of the essential aminos, then it is known as a “complete protein.” If a source lacks one or more aminos, then it is called an “incomplete protein.” Your complete protein sources are dairy, meats, and animal sources. And then your sources of incomplete proteins are seeds, legumes, nuts, vegetables, and grains.
You can combine two or more incomplete proteins to create a complete protein.
Everyone requires different amounts of protein based on their a activity level, type of exercise, physique goals, calorie intake, and more.
Your body burns energy to digest food and protein is the hardest macro to be digested. It has the highest TEF (I explained awhile back), but when being digested, protein accounts for 20-30% of your calorie expenditure (however, the thermic effect of food only uses about 6-10% of your calorie expenditure). It’s also very satisfying (helps you to feel fuller). #protein#pescience#nutrition#nutrients#macros#iifym#food#foodie#science#healthylifestyle#healing#recovery#wellbeing#healthandwellness#healthiswealth#fitfluential#fitnessenthusiast#fitnessmotivation#fitness#fitspo#lifter#runner#foodisfuel#foodislife#gains#gym#gymmotivation#lifestyle#longevity#knowledgeispower
Winter is coming! Time to channel my inner wolf and go #beastmode in the gym!
After track (running) season has concluded in the past two years, I have gained excessive and undesired body fat throughout each winter due to a poor off-season food intake.
However, this winter my goal is to remain no more than 5kg heavier than my racing weight.
It will require a lot of discipline on my own behalf. I hope that when I reflect on this post at the end of the winter season, I can say that I managed to achieve this goal!! To keep fit/active during the winter as well as participating in social sport (go the Camden Classics - mixed Netball team), I aim to go on long runs with @triniti_jean and hit the weights room which has benefits for on track performance and more importantly to me, provides me with training enjoyment. I enjoy working towards PR goals even if they are not specific to track.
To keep me focused my weight training goals are to PR in the following lifts:
Deadlift - 250kg (currently 235kg)
Bench - 150kg (currently 140kg)
Back Squat - 200kg (currently 185kg)
Front Squat - 150kg (currently 130kg)
I'm well aware that I will put on weight through an increase in weights training, however, aim to drop excess body fat and become the most explosive, powerful and disciplined version of myself ready for next summer! Super keen to also start training with my girl @lalalalalisa and work towards becoming a regular #fitcouple#winter#diet#prep#pr#goalgetter#bodybuilding#aesthetics#gainz#pullups#abdominalcrunch#abdominal#vision#physique#guyswholift#lifter#weightlift#thegymlife#stayfit#nutrition#healthy#gymrat#fitnessjourney#sport#track#lookgoodfeelgood
Building up to the Power lifting contest next month with triples. I hit two sets of 485 for triples after this set that felt real good. Should be fun competing in this event and I'm not a power lifter by trade but if I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna do my damn best! More updates on my peaking for this contest in days to come!
Главный принцип роста мышц - не позволять им адаптироваться к нагрузкам. Постоянно шокировать их. Я думаю на этой тренировки мои бицепсы нормально стрессанули.
The main principle of muscle growth is not to allow them to adapt to the stress. You need always to shock them. I think my biceps were stressed quite a lot at this workout.
Here they are! Our new releases💕👊💕👊💕👊💕👊💕👊💕👊
This boyfriend sweater used to come in gray and was a quick favorite by everyone. It can be worn off the shoulder or regular, it is the comfiest/softest shirt you will own. Perfect before/after workouts or dresses up.
We also launched 2 shorts. One has a scrunchy bum, need I say more!! I can see you rocking these at #crossfit
