#Repost @cairngormreindeer with @get_repost ・・・ After 66 years of reindeer herding in Scotland we have had a first. On the 8th May 2018 we had live twins born! 30 years ago we had twins, one was stillborn and the other survived for 12 hours. Since then we have had two sets (2008 and 2015) but both were stillborn so you can imagine our shock when we found them both alive and well. Their mother Lulu is one of our older females in the herd, at 12 years, and she is taking everything in her stride and not batting an eyelid at the two little bundles following her. She loves them both and lets them feed, however we are giving her a helping hand by offering them a top-up of bottled milk as we feel she hasn’t got enough to sustain two. They spent their first two weeks up in our mountain enclosure where they were born and we have been going out first thing in the morning and last thing at night every day since to make sure they were getting enough milk. They were being supported to suckle from Lulu in their first few days but now they are growing well and coming on leaps and bounds, and feeding themselves. We of course must remain realistic as this is extremely rare with only one other known case of twins being born in the world: in Finland in 2010. We will do our best by both them and Lulu, making sure she gets extra feed, browse and attention. Summer time is crucial for keeping an eye on reindeer with biting insects causing illnesses which the twins will be more susceptible to so their first six months are going to be a rocky road, however we feel they have rallied through their first two weeks so this amazing news can go public. #cairngormreindeer #cairngorms #scotland #scottishhighlands #scotspirit #lovescotland #visitscotland #calvingseason #twins #reindeer #calf #calves #scottishselection #highlandcollective #highlands @visitcairngorms @visitscotland @thecairngorms

Training with the leg monster @b_sak . Most people at the gym we see doing calf work only utilize the seated calf machine which mostly hits the soleus and not the gastroc effectively. To hit the gatroc muscle you should try doing raises with the knee straight. Also try to change your angle of your legs for the different heads. happy Monday!

Er så småt kommet igang med træning igen efter nogle måneders pause. Dels grundet job-opstart og en skulder der fortsat driller. Dette gjorde træning unødig kompliceret og resulterede i at jeg bare ikke kom afsted. For et par uger siden tog jeg mod til og meldte mig ind i repeat fitness. Jeg har ikke været i fitnesscenter i 7 år, men maskinparken, en safetybar og ja at prøve noget nyt var lige hvad der skulle til for at komme igang igen. Ja jeg har endda været på et løbebånd! Hvad skal det ikke blive til? 😉🖤 Nyt eventyr! #bodybuilding #fitness #repeat #power #lifting #strength #progress #gains #bodybuilder #training #new #beginning #health #legs #calves #selfie #weightloss #cardio #what

Seit mindestens einem halben Jahr kein Kreuzheben mehr gemacht, aber 160 gingen zum Glück noch auf Reps. ----------- Eigentlich hatte ich das Kreuzheben aus dem Plan genommen, da ich mich durch Rumänisches Kreuzheben und Rackpulls gezielter auf Schwachstellen konzentrieren will. Allerdings bin ich am überlegen wieder öfter Kreuzheben einzubauen, um die 200kg zu knacken. Auch wenn Kreuzheben jede Menge Vorteile hat, belastet es bei hohem Gewicht extrem das ZNS. ----------- Das Ego sollte man natürlich hinten an stellen, aber man muss sich schließlich auch neue Ziele stecken.

Walking up the stairs post leg day is the toughest part! Calves are still in agony from all the raises!⁣ ⁣ That being said, it was a killer workout today - who else hit the gym and absolutely smashed it!⁣ ⁣ #anytimefitness #anytimefitnessaldershot #alphalete #alphaleteathletics #gym #gymmotivation #fitness #fitfam #workout #gains #heavylifting #strengthtraining #mass #diet #cutting #bodybuilding #trainhard #fitquote #noexcuses #fitnessgoals #physiquegoals #hardwork #dedication #nopainnogain #legday #quads #hamstrings #calves #lunges

I only train legs once a week, but do calves twice. I really like using the seated leg press as I find I get a great stretch of the muscle. Achieved 5 sets of 8-12 on 290 (guessing its lbs!) today . . #RippedGym @rippedgym . . #rippedgymharlow #gym #gymlife #gymmotivation #workout #workoutmotivation #workouttime #workouts #muscle #instagym #instafit #instafitness #instadaily #gymvideos #harlow #essex #gymdaily #gymvideo #weights #weightlifting #fitnessmotivation #underarmour #gains #veins #legs #legday #calves #legpress

💥Maximize Calf Growth💥 __ 👉Growing the Calves can be tricky but utilizing these techniques will give you the best chance to grow them!👇 __ The Gastrocnemius is the largest Calf muscle and the one most people think of when they think of the Calves. Exercises like standing calf raises, single leg calf raises, donkey calf raises, jump rope, calf extensions on the leg press, and even squats and deadlifts work the Gastrocnemius well. __ The Soleus makes up the lower part of the Calves and isn’t often mentioned when training the Calves. Exercises like walking and seated Calf raises work the Soleus primarily. __ As a general rule of thumb, Calf exercises with the legs straight work the Gastrocnemius and exercises with the knees bent work the Soleus primarily. __ The Calves are accustomed to very high volumes of work from everyday activities like walking so it can be difficult to grow them sometimes. However, they respond well to a mix of lower and higher volume exercises. Sticking with 1-3 exercises for 3-4 sets of 8-20 reps, 2-4 days per week is a good way to go. Movements like standing calf raises could be used in the 8-12 rep range while single leg calf raises could be on the higher end toward 20 reps per set. Generally, the less weight that can be used, the higher the reps. __ 🤔Questions or comments? DM or post below!👇

Squat pressing 500 for a 3x8 yesterday, depending upon the foot placement determine which muscle you target more. In this video, mine are placed directly in the middle, targeting both the outer and inner head of the quad and the hamstrings. Say you wanted to isolate the quads better, go lower. Isolate the hamstrings better, go higher. Just a quick little tip

Got a great bicep and back workout in today. This is just some footage I got from the bicep split I had today. Doing what I like to call, wrenches, a great workout to target the Brachialis and both the long and short head of the bicep. The curls afterward was just to finish off the pump, try it out sometime 🤘🏻 great way to shred the forearms and get that bicep peak you’ve dreamed of

Eyes closed 😂—There are two main parts of the chest the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor, these muscles are for pushing motions, the pectoralis major is split in 3 parts, upper, middle, and lower - These areas can be activated through exercises such as for upper (Incline Bench, Supinated cable press, Incline Dumbbell) - Middle (Flat Bench Press, Flat Dumbbell Press, Plate Press) - Lower (Chest Dips, Decline Bench, High to Low Cable Press) Of course we will be showing these exercises very soon though - Denny

*excuse my face* I am 128 lbs and like Shane since last summer I’ve bulked up more rather than being around 5-7% body fat I’m around 10-12% now, my max deadlift is 250 lbs, my max bench and squat are to be determined but now I train legs twice a week since it’s just as important as every part of your body and others have the tendency to skip it. And like Shane said feel free to talk or to DM us for advice etc - Denny

Just a quick update: so right now, I’m sitting at 131lbs with about 8-10% body fat which differs from the summer when I previously weighed 120lbs with 5% body fat. During this winter I decided to eat more and train heavier, switching up my repetitions in my sets to a range from 6-12 to increase my muscle mass and strength. In doing so, increased my big 3 (squat, deadlift, and bench) to 335lbs Max Squat, 275lbs Max Deadlift, and 165lbs Max Bench. I’ll be looking forward to sitting down and talking to anyone who has questions on technique, dieting, workout style, motivation and soul searching, and anything I can help with.
