I haven't really been feeling like going to the gym lately, so this is as active as I've got in the past few days, well that and surfing. Whatever. Anyways, if you're in a fitness funk too, or just want to read some words, check out my new blog post in my bio!!! ••• #fitness#fambam#squats
IG CATCH-UP😉-Flexatron couldn't keep away from the expo.😋 Whether it was the Meet & Greet on Friday night or any time during the weekend Shawn was there!👈👆👉 Good seeing you my dude!👍 Man of few words but your accomplishments tell the story.🙌 Really felt meaning to that pat on the back after commending him on placing 2nd at the Olympia battling it out with Dex. All the best for the Olympia with your new Sponsor ProSupps!💪 @flexatronrhoden@arnoldclassicau
Strength in calorie deficit...it's going to suck & a lot of your lifts are going to suffer. You may get into this mental mind fuck that if you lose strength in lieu of aesthetics that your workouts are suffering, but that's a tad far fetched. Let's look at what's really happening:
I try explaining this often to folks, but when you're going for aesthetics or as the mainstream likes to say "tone", you're going to lose strength in your lifts big time. Calories are energy>calories generate fuel to burn as energy>depletion of calories=aesthetic gains as glycogen stores lower throughout the body>less energy store means less output that can be physically used as performance output.
So don't beat yourself up, because this is 455lbs...which may seem like a lot but at 20lbs heavier in bodyweight/fat, this lift has been closer to around 540lbs for 1RM. Whatever your fitness journey is keep at it and enjoy the ride. Stay the course and sail on! 🇺🇸💪🏻⚓️ #train#trainer#personaltrainer#gym#fitfam#fit#lift#flex#npti#nasm#issa#ces#pes#iifym#ruaware#core#squat#squats#glutes#stability#silkies#veteran#navy#quads#hamstrings#crosstraining#Silkies
