First day back after a week off and I intend to be in pain on wednesday 💪🏽
Squats in the smith today 😩 who else loves it when the squat rack with the Olympic Flat surface (flat being the key word) is occupied by a bench and someone doing bench press....when there are free racks that aren’t on top of the flat Olympic platform... loveee that and yay to those people🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 🙄
Due to my main lift not being on the platform👍🏽 I went for volume today over strength and nearly died lol 🙈 #legday #fitnessgirl #fitness #thegymgroup #training #weightlifting #weightgainingjourney #weightgain #bodyconditioning #fitfam #instafit #instagym #puma #nike #legpump #glutepump #lowerbody #quadday #mondaymotivation #startyourweekright

Watch as my form and strength get better with each clip

Watch as my form and strength get better with each clip

Banded squats are an important part of my warm up. Since I attended the @squat_university seminar in Ireland last weekend I found once again how important it is to get the glutes activated. Especially for squatting but for any kind of workout really. 
Your glutes are a muscle group, part of the posterior chain. They function for example for external rotation in your hips and straighten you up.

Touch and Go deadlifts?

Not often that I do touch and go deadlifts but it has many benefits
- more reps at a higher weight as you do not have to generate as much force off the floor.
- more tension throughout the whole set and not resting between each set. -another variation of the normal deadlift which can be great to mix up your training.

Another great session with Joe today managing to pull 170x5 💪🏼

Do you want a KILLER #chestworkout ? Meet 1 1/2 rep bench press. I when I was lifting just to be stronger, I found that I was weakest in my #benchpress off the chest, and thought it meant that my chest was my weakest point. 
I was wrong and had much to learn, but it led me to this exercise that I still use. 
I personally take my feet off the ground (would prefer to have them on the bench but I'm too tall 🤷🏼‍♂️) so they are lifted. This is to reduce leg drive, what my real issue was and still is. 
The key to this is the bottom half of the rep. A controlled eccentric and a slight pause at the top of the half rep. Yes, it's difficult to stop at the same point each rep and I struggle with it, but you gotta find what's hard then keep doing that. This exercise, especially when done for high repetitions lights the #pecs up! 🔥🔥🔥🔥 I went relatively heavier here with 140 lbs, ~55% of my max but I'm still feeling it. 
This is part of my heavy push workout with a chest focus.

Be in the lookout for the full #pushday workout.

✌🏻 I sometimes put a bit of pressure on myself, wanting to be more toned, have less body fat, and to look more 'lean' but in reality i know my goals aren't orientated around astetics! .
.
scrolling through Instagram and  having conversations with EVERYONE, I get carried away with the negative connotations around food and the way I look, and always question my goals when it comes to exercise. Weight loss and body  improvement is brought up so many times throughout my day, it's easy to get sidetracked in to thinking you are not good enough! .
.
My goals have always, and always will be althetic goals rather than astetic. I want to be the fastest, strongest, most skillful person I can be! I want to challenge my body in so many ways, to see what I am capable of! I want to work hard, sweat lots and push myself to see how far I can go and this drives me far more than any astetic goal ever would. .
.
I may not have abs and I love eating but I wanted to share my beliefs and encourage females to set other goals and to stop focusing on how you look! I am so BORED of the conversations that surround our society about wanting to look better! Your body is capable of so much more than abs and the perfect perky bums!!!
.
I guess what I am trying to preach is that, you need to be your own boss. If you do have astetic goals and thats what you truly want then that's great. BUT really think about why you are  wanting to change?! What are the influcing factors in your life?! Who do you follow on social media that may be having a negative impact on your personal acceptance?! Why do you not think you look great NOW! .
.
Do what you want, but do it for you! Your body is capable of so many things, be proud of it and own it! Fuel your body with what it wants, stop feeling guilty! 💪🏻 We have one life, one body, stop wasting energy thinking negatively about what your body should/could be and start realising what it can do now!!
.
Accept YOURSELF, start speaking positively about your body and what it can do! Do not compare, do what you want and enjoy life!

Green drinks - Really a substitute for green vegetables?
===============================
We all know the importance of green vegetables, its excellent source of vitamin, minerals and also dietary fiber. Now, there is a supplement drink that claims to give the same benefit as green veggies as they are more convenient to have. But those green drinks absorption rate and also the efficiency is little doubtful and less researched. So it better to stick with green veggies and only include those green drinks when there is no option.#bodybuilding #fitness #fitnesstrainer #fitnesstrainer #onlinecoaching #health #workout #exercise #weightloss #musclegain #fatloss #transformation #instafit #fitforlife #cleaneating #nutrition #diet #dieting #weightlifting

Today we get heavy!
🏋️
Image 1: Power Clean.
🔸Hook Grip ALWAYS!
🔸 Shoulders in front of bar
🔸 Core & Lats engaged while maintaining neutral lumbar curve
🔸Hips & Shoulders rise at same rate
🔸Fast Hip extension
🔸Heels down until Hips & Legs fully extend
🔸Shrug Shoulders then pull under the bar & release Hook Grip
🔸 Receive bar in partial squat
🔸Stand up to complete movement with Front Rack
🏋️
Image 2: Push/Muscle Jerk (Swipe to view)
🔸 Torso dips straight down, keep upper body vertical
🔸Rapid Hip & Leg extension
🔸Press under bar (Dip-Drive-Dip)
🔸 Receive bar in partial squat, arms fully extended
🔸 Stand up with bar still overhead (Hips, Knees and Elbows fully extended)
🏋️
These are just a few basic cues. Things still not clicking? See us! Remember to have patience. Olympic lifting is an every learning movement. You will always find ways to improve. Nothing comes overnight. Be coachable & all that you need will come to you.

Went to see @mobility_doc for a quick follow up on my should today, before I start my new job. After my session with @doctahjohng I was able to lift a little. So I got in a small snatch session. Worked up to 97 kg (213.9 lbs). This is the most I’ve snatched since hurting my shoulder a couple months back. Happy to be able to start pushing a little more now.

@catalystathletics We want to maintain a fairly constant back angle through the first pull, although we’ll nearly always see a slight change.
.
The hips shooting up dramatically more than the shoulders and bar rise creates a two big potential problems: It tends to shift balance too far forward, and it tends to force an early second pull, which reduces bar speed and elevation and also disrupts balance.
.
2 basic reasons for this to happen.
.
First is a rush to break the bar off the floor. Yanking the bar will nearly always cause the hips to shoot up before the shoulders.
.
Bar separation does not by any means need to be slow—you just have to control your position regardless of your speed. Ensure tension throughout the body before the start, and imagine pushing your legs through the floor to drive your chest up away from it, just as you would in a squat.
.
The second main cause is weakness of the legs relative to the hips. The knees are at a very small angle in the starting position that’s difficult for the quads to open.
.
The body will always shift into the strongest position for a given task—in this case, the knees will open without actually moving the load commensurately and shift more of the initial lifting to the hips.
.
The idea of pushing with the legs like a squat will still be helpful, but in this case, you need to improve position-specific strength to see real improvement.
.
First ensure all pulls and deadlifts are performed with the correct positions—reduce weights if needed or you’re simply going to continue reinforcing the incorrect positions.
.
Use pauses in pulls and deadlifts, particularly immediately after bar separation and at the knee, ensuring correct posture is maintained. You can also add slow eccentrics as long as you maintain the correct position all the way to the floor. Use pulls from a riser to improve starting strength at even smaller knee angles, and use pause back squats to further develop strength from a small knee angle.

MACROS by @trainwithcarsen 
_

CARBS🍚- are your body’s primary fuel source. When it comes to fueling your workouts, think of carbs like gas for your car. You can’t drive it far without gas in the car, right? Same goes with your workouts. If you are avoiding carbs because you think they’re “bad” or will “make you fat”, you are limiting your performance potential. 
_

PROTEIN🍗- is the building block for muscle recovery. In order to effectively build a substantial amount of muscle, you need to be consuming enough protein. Aim for 1-gram of protein per 1-pound of body weight. 
There is not necessarily a “best time” for protein consumption, but rather, you should be consuming it throughout the day in order to hit your daily protein goal.

_

FATS🥑- fats get a bad rep because of their name, but healthy fats are crucial to a healthy diet and healthy body. Healthy fats help to absorb vitamins, fuel brain health, regulate hormones, and much more. When it comes to fat consumption, ❌avoid trans fat and limit saturated fats. These fats do more harm than good.

CARBS🍚- are your body’s primary fuel source. When it comes to fueling your workouts, think of carbs like gas for your car. You can’t drive it far without gas in the car, right? Same goes with your workouts. If you are avoiding carbs because you think they’re “bad” or will “make you fat”, you are limiting your performance potential.
_

PROTEIN🍗- is the building block for muscle recovery. In order to effectively build a substantial amount of muscle, you need to be consuming enough protein. Aim for 1-gram of protein per 1-pound of body weight.

Tire flips have been a mountain to climb but I feel like we’re getting there!

Part 2. Deadlift Tech - Things to Think About When  Deadlifting. 🏋🏽‍♀️
7. Everything  should come up at the same time. 
What you don't want is the butt coming up first and then the chest, creating a double movement.
This will place pressure on the lower back and increase the risk of injury.
🏋🏽‍♀️
8. Shoulders should be pulled back and chest pushed out throughout the movement. 
I find this can be a challenge for newbies holding and maintaining the correct postural position. 🏋🏽‍♀️
9. The bar should be kept close to the body throughout the lift. Don't let it come away from you. It should scrape up the shins and thighs.
🏋🏽‍♀️
10. Return to a standing position to complete the lift. What you should not do is push the hips forward so the lower back over extends. Just stand up normally or to neutral. Don't hyperextend the knees. If you push or bang the bar off your hips in power comps this can be classed as a double movement. Correct me if i am wrong. But either way there is no need.
🏋🏽‍♀️
If the load is heavy you can drop it to save energy. Olympic discs/plates and bars are designed to bounce when dropped. Just make sure the platform or area you use is suitable.
🏋🏽‍♀️
I hope these coaching points will be of use. If you want to see What I Do, you can click the link in my bio or go to www.lizziefitness.com
