I'm constantly amazed at how much my body has changed in the past 9 weeks. Huge difference in bodyfat percentage and weight (225+ and about 13% in the picture on the left, 205 and about 7.5% in the picture on the right). Just goes to show what a huge difference can be made from diet and exercise (and also learning how to pose). #equinox#eqx#teameqx#equinoxmademedoit#committosomething#itsnotfitnessitslife
Fitness is a lifelong journey. Set goals and chase them down. When you reach one goal, set another one and pursue it just as furiously. Don’t get frustrated when it gets tough. Even if you’re moving slowly that’s better than not moving at all. Just focus on being better today than you were yesterday! 👊🙏 Work hard, lift big, eat bigger 😉💪
Physique Update! I don't usually take mirror selfies but when I do, I make sure its when I hit Chest and Triceps. Body by French Vanilla Ice Cream and Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies 🍪🍦. Bodyweight sitting at around 185-190lbs. Eating roughly 4000 Calories a day. Macros? Whatever the hell they happen to be that day 😂But usually around +100g of fat, +500g of carbs and anywhere from 150-200g of protein.
Worked up to 96% of my one rep max. Done for the week and next week is a deload. Then maxing out. Super excited to see where I'm at. About to write a blog post of how I'm cutting and gaining strength still. #ayytwozfitness#11weekstillLA
It's incredible how much stepping back can step you forward. - - For many of you that have been following - you know I had a mild rib injury and QL tightness in February which prevented me from doing ANY powerlifting for 3 weeks. I stopped using my belt 10mm by inzer for training because I couldn't take the pressure on my rib cage on the left side. I had cartilage damage and inflammatory response .. I am very very short waisted so I ordered a taper belt in hopes that this will prevent additional rib irritation. - - The QL tension was derived also from my SI joint being "locked up". I began focusing on more mobility work and myofascial release at the glutes with my lacrosse ball. It was also due to imbalance of a very dominant right side - therefore my left side was over worked. I've been implementing lots of of unilateral work AND plyometrics for leg power and even strength. - Beyond this, I increased my yoga classes to 2-3x per week. Why I love yoga is that it's improved my flexibility, postural awareness, and breathing technique. It's often missed to use deep diaphragmatic breathing - You will notice that if you try to breathe deeply with slumped forwards posture, it is difficult to fill your lungs and breathe deeply. This is because when you are slumped your abdominal contents become compressed and your diaphragm can’t move downwards. This creates the need to use your upper chest muscles to help you breathe. Slumped forward position and breathing with the upper chest muscles increase pressure on the pelvic floor; what’s more is that in this slumped forward position your deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles can’t work well to counteract this increased pressure. This is why correct posture is very important in helping your diaphragm, pelvic floor and abdominal muscles to work well together. - - Fast forward to this week .. week 4 back. I was able to pull 190lb for sets of 8. My cues I use are "breathe into the belly” - I will be adding the belt back in when I get mine in lol! But will be using it for lower rep sets 👍🏻
Desde mi desgarre del Pectoral a finales del año pasado, he podido poco a poco retomar mis entrenamientos de pecho, dichos entrenamientos se han basado mas en ejercicios de Aislamiento como los Flys en Poleas, ha sido mi forma de poder volver a activar las nuevas fibras que se han desarrollado durante mi etapa de recuperación, no ha sido fácil y muchas veces muy frustrante, pero no importante es nunca rendirme y siempre seguir hacia adelante haciendo las modificaciones necesarias dentro de mis entrenamientos para estar pronto en mi 100%. #bodybuilder#gurabonutrition#strenghtcoach#hipertrofia#liveovertheedge#powerlifter
