When I don’t have much time to workout during the week I love to have a super cardio day when I can. Today was that day! Hour elliptical, 20 min walk, 30x3 reverse sit ups, 30x4 flutter kicks, 20x3 donkey kicks, 20 min stretch !!!!! 🤦🏻♀️
Embrace Olympic Holiday half term course
A fantastic day at both of our venues with the children taking part in a variety of different team games, group activities and arts and crafts to remain Stimulated through out
Our coaches have enjoyed the day just as much as the children attending
🇮🇹 1 litro di liquido (acqua di cottura del cavolo verza ma si può provare con altri ortaggi), 1 cucchiaino di agar agar stevia o miele a piacere. Si fa bollire l'acqua di cottura del cavolo e si aggiunge semplicemente l'agar agar mescolando. Si fa rapprendere il liquido in frigo un paio di minuti, poi si mette nelle formine e si aspetta che si addensi a temperatura ambiente. Poi insalata di rucola, ravanelli e carote.
🇬🇧 🇺🇸 1 liter of liquid (cooking water of savoy cabbage but you can try with other vegetables), 1 teaspoon of agar stevia agar or honey as you prefer.
Boil the cooking water of the cabbage and simply add the agar agar. Set the liquid in the fridge for a couple of minutes, then put it into the molds and let it thicken at room temperature. Then salad of rocket, radishes and carrots.
Are you as hard on others as you are on yourself? Is it okay for someone else to fail, but not for you? Is it understandable if someone else misses a workout, because life happens, but the end of the world if you miss one?
I hate to admit it, but that’s how my life used to be. I constantly would compare myself to others. Thinking “Why can’t I look like her?” or “Why can’t I be as smart as they are?” I was always afraid to take chances in fear of failure. Thinking “If I say this it might be wrong.” or “If I try this, I could mess up.” I would beat myself up if I missed a workout. Telling myself, “You’re not pushing yourself hard enough.” or “You really have no excuse why you couldn’t of gone.”
Being a perfectionist I always want to be the best. I never want to make mistakes, I want to be perfect 24/7. But let’s be real, THATS NOT POSSIBLE!!! For anyone!
No body is perfect (Hannah Montana even says it herself). So you, me, or anyone else shouldn’t expect to be either. I’m learning to expect my flaws and failures, because ultimately that’s what makes me, ME.
Which diet is best for you?
There are 101 diets out there telling you they have the secret formula for getting you the dream body. Just because a friend got great results with a diet doesn’t mean it will work for you. We are all individuals.
You need to find a diet that suits your goals, activity levels, lifestyle and body type. Every diet out there has the same goal - putting you in a calorie deficit. They just package it up differently. You just need to find one that suits you.
It’s a process of trial and error to find what works for you. You may even take 2 or 3 diets and mould them to suit your needs.
At the end of the day the best diet is one that you feel you can stick to for a long period of time as fat loss takes time. It’s a marathon not a sprint. -
You may even find that just tidying up what you are already doing may be the answer. Reducing your alcohol, eating more vegetables, eating more protein, drinking more water, and moveing more is all it could take to start to see results.
Don’t over complicate the process.
What does one do when his knee won’t let him squat or Olympic lift for a couple weeks? DEADLIFT OF COURSE. .
A sprained patellar tendon in my right knee (same stupid knee I had to rehab for 9 months in 2016) is slowing down the progress in learning Olympic lifting. But I’m grateful that I have more tools in the bag to rely on, out side of squatting 6-8 times a week. .
@warriorbootcamp shifted my programming to a mad amount of upper body hypertrophy, heavy and speed bench, and of course, the mighty dead. Worked up to heavy single, 215 kg/473 lbs, with a TON of volume through the middle in triples and doubles. A little unstable in places and my form is a little off, but it felt good for not having done a heavy day since before Christmas.
Hard times don't create heroes. It is during the hard times when the 'hero' within us is revealed. 💪
Who's my hero? That's a great question... Well, my dad is my hero, because he's someone i looked up to growning up. While i was growing up in Colombia, my father moved to the united states to give us a better life. It takes a certain type of man to leave his family behind to provide for them. I wouldn't be where i am today if it wasn't for him. He gave me the courage to do what i do everyday. Stay positive and work hard for what you believe in!
Who is your super hero??? 🏋
The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of the world but those who fight and win battles that others do not know anything about.
You never really know what someone is going through, don't judge a book by its cover. I just want you to know you are not alone. There's always help, there's always a way out. 🤜🏻🤛🏼 Military Suicide Hotline: (800) 273-8255
Most people look at life like a giant tragedy. When things get tough, they complain and become negative. I smile and laugh at the bullshit life throws at me. Nothing is impossible. I'll climb over and destroy any obstacle that gets in my way with ease and a smile on my face. ✌
Nothing like traveling the world and being able to experience different cultures. I miss Japan's beautiful scenery and amazing people 🇯🇵
