Phoebe has been training with me for the last 8 weeks 😊 Today we did her body composition measurements again. Her goal was to increase muscle mass and lose body fat. She has lost 4.5% body fat and gained 2.5kg of muscle mass 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #strengthtraining #bodyfat

MEET RECAP: DEADLIFTS . After Deadlift for Dollars, I was so set on pulling 200kg+ and spent my taper week working on my technical weaknesses, but unfortunately on the day I wasn't able to execute and literally did a repeat of last week 😂😂 . Swipe ⬅️⬅️⬅️ for all 3 attempts . 1) 180kg ✔ 2) 195kg ❌ 3) 195kg ✔ . Happy I was able to come back and still hit my third. Weakness got exposed so time to rebuild my setup and work on executing. . A couple mentions... . Maaaaaaassive thank you to @jamessle for handling me on the day, I got a near perfect meet all thanks to him. I didn't have to worry about much all dy besides stayed focused. Also, BIG BOI @michaelsechos for hyping me up all day and particularly on the last lift, I knew I was getting that 195 one way or another another with those final words in my ear. . Thank you to my @tempusaustralia #tempusbarbell fam for competing alongside me. It's been a fun few months of sh*t talk and training leading up to this day. Glad we were able to share the experience together. @sam_dennis95 @thepeoplesgym @nikkibrown @bootyanddonuts @_jeffwu @eddie_el_fijian @anook . Always thankful and grateful for my friends for making the effort and trek to come out and support me. Always means a lot to know you're surrounded and supported by people who want to see you win and succeed in any endeavour you choose. @bigerut666 @wongcakes @annagram @bryancustodio @prashattack @chryssanty @_phillippt . And lastly, big thank you to @adonisathleticspenrith , the coaches @danwally @shaunpoint0 and all the other Adonis fam who loaded, spotted, reffed and/or helped out in any way to contribute to organising, setting up and running the meet. . #teamtempus #deadlift #sumodeadlift #strengthtraining #powerlifting #weightlifting #olympicweightlifting #olympiclifting #crossfit #fitness #gym #strengthandconditioning #athleticdevelopment #coaching #personaltraining

Are you doing everything but still not getting results?! # # I wouldn’t say exercise is a mistake as such, whatever you’re doing exercise wise is always going to have a positive impact on your health and if you enjoy what you do then that’s the MOST important thing!! However... If you want to see physical change to your body and most women I speak to want to “tone” or feel less “wobbly” then you have to change up the way you train, ensuring you’re monitoring your calorie input is a BIG part of this too. # # The simple answer & often over complicated is this: 1️⃣TIME - I feel this should be number one because progress is ultimately timed based. A lot of us just expect things to happen over night right? You start something new and the next day you’re like “where’s my toned tummy at?!” If you want to change your shape allow time and embrace the small subtle changes you see occur. When talking in training terms, following a programme for 6 weeks is a good place to start. Then looking at your body change over months & years is where it’s at! 2️⃣PROGRAMMING - If you want to see results you should follow a programme to get you from A to B. Winging it is okay but it’s not very practical. Lifting with resistance that challenges you is important so you should have this incorporated in your training programme. *FYI it is not necessary to feel like you can’t walk down the stairs after training.* Resistance training can consist of body weight & banded which is cool. However with compound movements (whole body movements like squats) adding weight in a progressive manner is important, using the metal stuff you know 🏋🏽‍♀️ Barbells might not be for you which is OK, but there may come a time in which you will need to move from 4kg DBS to 5’s, 6’s or more! Strength is a great thing! 3️⃣ RECOVERY - Ah yes my favourite topic, doing nothing! 😂 Honestly recovery is such an important part of training, if you’re training everyday & not feeling like you’re getting anywhere you may just to recover & give yourself time to be able to achieve more in your workouts. If you recover better your workouts, results and strength will become better - recharging those batteries is key! #getpeachy

Don't forget that recovery shake, your going to need it!! #f45newmarket #romans #strengthtraining #tuesday

💪🏽 HOW TO GAIN MUSCLE FASTER; - LIFT WEIGHT - Sleep 6-8 hours per night - Consume 2.3-2.8g of protein/kg of BW - Stay consistent with your workouts + continually push yourself - EAT AT A CALORIC SURPLUS - Consume 3-5g creatine monohydrate daily - Train every body part throughout the week (twice if possible) - Don’t go to bed hungry; aim for at least 4 meals/ day . People like to say that gaining muscle is 80% nutrition and 20% training 🤨. I’d say finding an exact percentage is arbitrary, but when it comes to gaining muscle, or making any true progress its 💯 nutrition, 💯 training!! . You can eat the perfect diet but if you don’t lift weights, you will not gain muscle 💁🏼‍♀️. Similarly, you can’t out train a poor diet (for fat loss) 💦. And yes, you can lose fat lifting weights. So, I think you want to REALLY emphasise pushing hard in the gym and lifting intelligently in order to maximise your rate of muscle gain 😈. . Don’t get me wrong, if you’re eating like a mouse, you’re not going to build much, if any muscle 🐹. When it comes to nutrition for gaining muscle, you really want to emphasise your protein and caloric intake. 🍳 Plan on eating more calories and protein, spread out by at least 4 meals. DO NOT be afraid to eat a lot before bed, or even throughout the day ⏰! (and yes, contrary to popular belief you can eat carbs after 6pm). . If you could focus on any of these, it should be the following: 🏋🏼‍♀️ Lifting weights 4-6x per week (note: you can still do cardio/ HIIT; just eat MORE – FIT STRENGTH BABY) — 🙇🏼‍♀️ Tracking your food/ workouts (and yes, this can be without scales or written records!! Just be MINDFUL) — Do this for 6 months and I promise you’ll have made some “gains”. . What’s your current health + fitness goal? ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Practising the #snatch .... haven’t done these in a long time , but without any prehab before trying this is what I came up with ! 💪🏼💪🏼🏋🏼‍♂️🏋🏼‍♂️ I will take that the first one was a bit messy 😊😊 what I can see from the video is my knees are collapsing in , so need to work on that , and my shoulder range overhead is diff on each side hence the uneven bar ..... room for improvement and reminds me of why we need to PREHAB 💜💜💋💋but I think i definitely improved second time round ! Got to keep practising 💕💕😇😇🏋🏼‍♀️🏋🏼‍♀️ It’s a great overall body exercise and really gets your heart pumping and a sweat 💦 going !! This is what we ate working up to @drusillaosullivan 😂😂🏋🏼‍♀️🏋🏼‍♀️🔥🔥 xxx #snatch #olympicweightlifting #stabilty #cleans #cleanandjerk #snatchpull #snatchhighpull #fitfemalesclub #fitty #fitfam #yummymummies #ladieswholift #personaltraining #prehab #sportsmassage #activation #mobilitytraining #strengthtrainingforwomen #strengthtraining #fun #learning

Stood before the bar, on the platform is both a battlefield and a temple, a place of great struggle and peace. There is something amazing about putting heavy stuff onto a barbell and then lifting it up. The quiet you get in your mind from the focus that is required is nothing short of meditation. — Taking me back to the time I joined the Royal Marines. The training we went through was so difficult that you had no choice but to switch off from what you’re feeling and get on with it. Weightlifting gives me a controlled dose of this and I am hooked completely. — Each time I take charge of the barbell it teaches me a different lesson, maybe a physical one or a mental one. The development you get from lifting weights is much more than strong legs or good shoulders, it goes deep!

Traditionally, it has been assumed that the downward phase of the countermovement jump was influential on the resulting jump height. Recently, however, research has suggested that only the biomechanics of the upward phase affects the resulting jump height, and altering the duration or force produced in the downward phase probably only affects either total jump time or the efficiency of the movement. -------------------- #sandcresearch #strengthandconditioning #strengthtraining #strength #strengthcoach #sportsscience #biomechanics #exercisescience #research #sciencetopractice #performance #science #infographic #infographics #jump #vertical #verticaljump #countermovement #countermovementjump #jumping #trackandfield #athlete #athletics #athletes

You will have a hard time finding happiness if it is directly influenced by a number - whether it's your scale weight, likes on a post, calories consumed, weight on the barbell or even dollars in your account. . I wasn't confident in my body at all. I wasn't happy. Weighing myself after every meal. Never consuming more calories than I had burned off for that day. Binging. Purging. Training 6+ times a week plus running. I was chasing 50kg and was convinced that true happiness and confidence would be waiting for me when I got there. It wasn't. I vividly remember at 52kg I was just incredibly sick. Losing chunks of hair and passing out frequently. Not to mention hiding my body behind layers and layers of baggy clothing. . This post, this is a confidence PB for me. Up until just over 2 years ago I wanted my legs to be tiny. I didn't think I'd ever want to pose for a photo deliberately trying to look "bigger". I didn't think I'd ever be able to barbell squat, let alone squat 2x bodyweight. I didn't think I'd ever wear a tight top to the gym, let alone train in a crop. And my oh my, owning Lycra shorts was just out of the question. Now? Well I don't wear pants 🤷🏽‍♀️ . Strength training was the catalyst for change in me. It's given me a love and appreciation for my body that 2016 Jessica could have only dreamed of. Forever respecting the journey and the lessons that the barbell has taught me 💕 #myownnumberonefan #confidencepb #imfeelinmaself

🎳Pull ups vs. Chin ups🎳 I remember when I couldn't do even one pullup. Now I can do 8-10 for 4-5 sets but I'm heavy weight 100kg 🤣🤣🤣 . 🎳This isn’t a competition. Not a comparison of which exercise is better. I’m just highlighting the different muscles used. . 🎳Pull ups target your lats (muscles that give you a V shape) They also work several other muscles and are a fantastic exercise. They tend to be a bit more difficult than chin ups because your arms are further apart and anything further from your body’s midline will generally be more difficult. . 🎳Chin ups primarily target your biceps but also work many other upper body muscles. Most people get their first chin up before a pull up. It’s not ALWAYS the case though. . 🎳Have any questions? Feel free to ask away! 😁 . . . . #fitness  #workout  #weightloss  #nutrition #healthy  #nutritiontips  #weightlosstips  #fatloss #weightlosscoach  #onlinecoach  #fitsporation  #instafit #instagood  #fitfam  #fitspo  #exercisetips  #workoutguide #exercise  #healthylifestyle  #health  #fit  #trainer  #fatlosshelp #weightlosshelp  #backworkout  #crossfit  #strengthtraining #pullup  #chinup

📌Programming Terminology: Part 1: . To help you take back control of your training and following on from my Programming 101 Series this Week my aim is to breakdown Programming Terminology for you so you can have a greater understanding of some of the key principles and programming variables that need to be utilised and accounted for when programming a training phase and/or cycle. . Today it's Volume, Intensity, Frequency and Progressive Overload, 4 of the most important training stress variables we have at our disposal to achieve our goals and progress. . #teamLBP #LBP #coach #training #nutrition #fitness #gym #workout #transformation #fitnessmotivation #weightlifting #strongman #crossfit #powerlifting #chinup #fitfam #bodybuilding #girlswholift #shelifts #strongnotskinny #strong #strengthtraining #performance #fitspo #strengthcoach #personaltrainer #educate #empower

A LITTLE HISTORY OF CALORIE COUNTING - For some of you reading this - you may be familiar with macronutrient caloric measures. - Protein - 4 calories per gram - Carbohydrates - 4 calories per gram - Fats - 9 calories per gram - But have you ever wondered where these numbers came from? 🤔 - ✅ In the late 1800s a chemist named Wilbur Olin Atwater calculated the caloric value of various food items using bomb calorimetry, a very precise method for measuring total energy in any object. - ✅ Interestingly, yet not surprisingly, a wide range of total caloric values were found, even for single ingredient food types of the same size and weight!! - ✅ As a result, the Food and Agriculture Organization concluded that a food database cannot accurately predict the composition of any single food. - ✅Atwater’s total caloric ranges were used to produce the calorie averages we see on food labels and in databases today....over a 100 years later! - ✅ The averages of 4 calories per gram of protein, 4 calories per gram of carbs and 9 calories per gram of fat - are the result of Atwater's general correction factors. - ✅Since that time, it has been discovered that energy ABSORPTION varies greatly as well. - Once food is cooked, chopped, blended...etc. the amount of energy available for digestion and absorption changes. Even a person's individual gut bacteria will change how many calories are actually absorbed by the body (some research suggests as much as 150-200 calories difference). - ✅ In other words - The idea that a gram of ANY type of protein or carbohydrate yields 4 calories and ANY type of fat yields 9 is a gross oversimplification that could have significant implications when trying to calculate your calories!!! - ▪️BOTTOM LINE: Use calculators as a general guideline not as an absolute measure of progress. - Just because according to your smart app you have X amount of calories or X amount of macros "left"....think about what you're actually eating and pay attention to what your body is telling you. - Are you ravenously hungry? How are your energy levels? Are you getting cravings? How do you actually look and feel? Is your performance suffering?

AMINO ACIDS... ~ Known to be the 'building blocks' protein, Amino acids have been thoroughly researched in the hope that they will either speed up recovery, enhance muscle growth, improve the ability to tolerate higher training volumes or all of the above. ~ There are as many as 500 naturally occurring Amino acids with 20 of those found in our DNA. The ones we are concerned with can be categorised several ways: > 3 Branched chain amino acids; Leucine, Iso-leucine and Valine (BCAAs) > 9 Essential amino acids (EAAs) > Non-essential amino acids (nEAAs) ~ From a supplement perspective we are focusing on BCAAs, Glutamine, Beta-alanine, HMB & Taurine. ~ Science is a funny thing, sometimes we believe something for years before anyone can prove it to be true, and other times we find out years later that it may have all been hype and a commercial effort to mislead us. ~ Amino acids appear to be somewhere in the middle of that scientific study confusion... ~ 🍖 There are studies showing no additional benefit to muscle growth AS LONG AS TOTAL PROTEIN IS ADEQUATE. People with habitually low protein intakes therefore would benefit from BCAA and EAA supplementation. ~ 💪🏼 There are some amino acids that enhance protein synthesis while others do not. Leucine appears beneficial in this case but HMB (derived from Leucine) is more effective in preventing muscle breakdown rather than increasing growth rate. ~ 😴 Some amino acids may effect the blood/brain barrier and prevent the onset of fatigue by influencing tryptophan pathways. Tryptophan is a precursor to the neurotransmitters GABA and serotonin - things that make us fee tired! ~ ⛹🏽 Beta-alanine has been shown as effective in buffering the compounds we produce through exercising at high intensity. This means taking beta-alanine as a supplement can improve our ability to do more work at these higher work rates. A very important supplement for short duration sports/repeated sprint sports. ~ Need more info? Come down for a chat with one of our coaches 📲
