Had a great session tonight with my lil big bro @spencer_forex. Slight improvement on last week for the both of us, but It's a process. Gotta be patient. It's the small consistent actions that add up. DONT NEGLECT YOUR HEALTH. Take care of your temple. Not everything was recorded today but here are some highlights from today to encourage you.

When I first started going to the gym the first product I was introduced to were pre-workouts: C4 especially
I was excited to go to the gym just so I can take this pre-workout, I loved that feeling of feeling tingly and jumpy
But as I got older I realized that all this was caffeine and I took a lot during my day, like 3Monsters a day, then pre-workout all because I work 12-17hrs shifts and didn’t know much about anything
Now I take pre-workouts when I really feel I need it, like late nights of homework and up early to hit the gym or the days I don’t have the motivation or energy to go, but lately I’ve been taking @1stphorm Project 1 consistently everyday! .
The way it makes me feel so much energy and so focus and the amazing flavor of Grape popsicle (but we’ll see with the new flavor orange soda that dropped yesterday)
•Beta-Alanine: 2400mg(that’s what gives the pump and the tingly feeling)
•BCAAs: (included in a preworkout)
•Creatine: 5mg as well
•Citrulline Matale: this is what fights off fatigue and gives you energy to help you train hard throughout your whole workout!!
You can’t beat this pre-workout!!
Have any questions, don’t a comment, DM me or email me! Want to try this one or the new limited flavor 😁
Use the link in Bio!! the best part is
Looking to add some muscle to your chest? 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
In addition to flat bench press, make sure to include decline and incline bench press during your chest work out to emphasise extra growth in the upper and lower chest.
It is also a great idea to rotate with each workout between barbell and dumbbell bench press to keep your muscles guessing!
The rotator cuff is a group of small #muscles which are important to stabilize the #shoulder during activity. They are especially important in overhead or pressing movements. Such as the military press or any bench movements as the shoulders can be put under a lot of strain.
Playing #rugby I’ve had 2 really bad cases of impingement syndrome in both shoulders and had to build back the #strength in my shoulder each time, which was a painstakingly slow process .
These are just a few of the quick #exercises I perform before any push session to ensure my shoulders are sufficiently warmed up.
Exercises shown are, Internal Rotation and External Rotation of the shoulder joint.
Little tips, keep the #chest nice and high. Slow and controlled tempo you are aiming to move the shoulder joint not pull a weight so ensure to keep the weights nice and light. Squeeze the shoulder blades in as you perform the exercise.
Keep your elbows bent to 90° throughout the exercise. When they are by your side try and keep your elbow tucked into your body at all time and focus on the rotation of the shoulder. When they are in the air ensure your arm remains parallel to the floor.
These exercises can be done using light plates, resistance bands or dumbbells lying on your side.
Become mentally strong to do things you don’t want to do inorder to accomplish things you don’t have..
Honestly that’s all lifting is..
And it sums up life..
If you keep working toward any goal and keep pushing and getting better each day you will get it.. .
So.. Pratice taking initiative and doing things you currently are not inorder to reach new heights 🤷🏾♂️
