My form is definitely improving thanks to many amazing tips from my followers and from being able to film my workouts at city fitness! I've never had a personal trainer before so everything I know and have learned has come from the help of others around me. It is so important to be open minded and to be happy to take on constructive criticism in order to grow and improve. The more you learn the more you realise how much you don't know 😜

Guys it's happening!!!! The @nzmuscle GYM is opening on the 9th of September 😍check out their page @nzmusclegym it's going to be EPIC 😁

Throw Back Thursday to the Relaxing holidays with @samboucherphoto πŸ“Έ when I was back home in Auckland! πŸ’• which is the complete opposite to my life right now πŸ˜… I have a semester test tonight at uni so I won't make it to the gym til late... so I'm gonna need lots of pre workout!!πŸ˜… I am currently studying my ass off at the library before my test which is in 4 hours... so my 5x5 will be interesting tonight with little food, an exhausted mind and a lack of sleep... 😬 but it's all part of the grind πŸ™„ I'm gonna have theses ups and downs with uni while trying to increase my strength, so I'm gonna have to get use to days like these and not let uni stress interfere with my workouts because I have goals that I'm gonna smash! I just don't have time to put a workout off right now, no matter how tired I am! Each session counts πŸ‘ŠπŸ» @nzmuscle

Excuse my resting bitch face but tonight's workout involves some serious sh*t πŸ˜‚ My over head press was 27.5kg tonight and the last time I did a 5x5 program I couldn't get past this! However I smashed it out tonight without any failure! Here's hoping the next session will be just as easy when I move up to 30kg πŸ˜…So far, so good, fit fam! #progress .

I've Finally found another Preworkout that gives me a similar buzz to Mr Hyde! But with less caffeine! Dr Jekyll is normally my other "go too" when I want less caffeine (if I'm working out at night) but Savage roar has more beta alanine in it so I get more of that tingly feeling of which I LOVE! Every Preworkout is so different and different people like different things, so when looking for a pre workout make sure to get familiar with ingredients and their effects. Everyone can react and feel different to certain preworkouts so make sure to try things for yourself if you're not sure what works for you yet! πŸ‘ŠπŸ» Cheers @nzmuscle for this sweet hook up πŸ’•

What a nice way to start a Saturday morning 😊 Protein Pancakes topped with Walden Farms Calorie Free Maple Syrup and Greek yogurt with Banana 😍 @nzmuscle

Wanna join me on my 5x5 strength journey!? All you have to do is start!!! I am now 4 weeks into mine and it's going great! For those that don't know 5x5 stands for 5 reps of 5 sets of an exercise. I am doing 5x5 for squats, deadlifts, overhead press, bent over barbell rows and hip thrusts, as those are the exercises I want to focus on (most people do bench press instead of hip thrusts). Today's workout was squats, deadlifts and over head press and on other days I do squats again, bent over barbell rows and hip thrusts and I have a rest day in between every session. Each time I go, I add 2.5kg to every exercise until I finally fail and can't lift any more and then I stay on that weight until I can finally get through it and then I add more weight again. It's such a fun challenge, both mentally and physically. I've already noticed my power increasing, my fitness increasing, and my form has definitely improved! Let me know if you're gonna take the challenge too! I'd love to hear about your achievements and challenges! Let's do this together! πŸ’ͺ🏼😁 PS a big shout out to my amazing boyfriend Henry, for putting this photo together for me today! Such an awesome edit β€οΈπŸ™Š

Today's Workout was Epic! Although, the gym was freakin busy πŸ˜… Today's squats were 62.5kg, Bent over rows were 25kg, and Hip Thrusts were at 50kg... there was no Olympic bar free for me to do hip thrusts with, so I tried out using the easy-bar, which was all fun and games until it rolled over and dug into my hip bones 😭 which is why I am cracking up in the last photo πŸ˜‚ it feels like the build up to the big weights is taking for ever! But I know I have to trust the process. At least I'm starting to break a sweat now though which is a good sign πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΌ Hope everyone smashed out their workouts today! And if not, the night is still young πŸ˜‰

Downing the Creatine before Uni 😁 I'm still loading at the moment so I'm having about 10g a day. You can absorb upto 0.3g per kg of bodyweight a day efficiently but im doing a bit less than that and loading for longer. For those that don't know, creatine is amazing for increasing strength. We get creatine naturally from meat but not enough from meat alone for it to really impact our strength so taking it as a supplement is amazing! I've already started noticing my strength/energy going up and I'm still training with light/moderate weights! With doing 5x5 strength training this stuff is really gonna help me push through those last reps on my max weights and I'm so excited for that stage 😁 creatine is also one of the cheapest and most effective, and studied supplements out too!
I would strongly recommend taking creatine if your goal is strength/power!Check out @nzmuscle and make sure to use my code BROOKE to make it even cheaper!! 😁

Tonight's workout was amazing! πŸ™ŒπŸ» I fuelled myself with some mashed pumpkin, kumara and spinach with some beef schnitzel and I washed that down with some Mr Hyde Preworkout from @nzmuscle so I was absolutely buzzing!!! 😝 I have finally reached 60kg for my 5x5 in squats and deadlifts so it's starting to get a little bit interesting now. Each session I am adding 2.5kg until I fail. Surprisingly, tonight's squats seemed easier than my last session which was an even lighter weight! So I am definitely getting stronger already 😁 I am super excited to see what my first fail will be. My guess would be about 85kg, since I haven't lifted heavier than that in a very long time. But My end goal is to reach at least 100kg 5x5 with good form for both squats and deadlifts. Slow and Steady wins the race! 🏁 🐒

Those Feels when an @nzmuscle package arrives at your door 😍 a new NZ Muscle Shaker cup with compartments for creatine, glutamine, vitamin storage etc, a big NZ Muscle army green Jug to match my leggings 😜 and NZM sunglasses, a white stainless steel Shaker Cup to keep my Preworkout colder for longer, a massive 3.4L jug and a freaking NZ Muscle Waist Trainer!!!! I'm so excited to put all these goodies to good use! Thank you to the best sponsors ever!! Love you guys πŸ˜πŸ’• what a great way to start the weekend! xox

Last Nights Dinner was a treat! Premium lean mince with cabbage and carrots! I'm trying to lower my carbs slightly and increase my fats. The reason why I am doing this is not for weight loss/weight gain it's purely to lower my sugar intake in order to have a healthier lifestyle in general. I do believe that carbs are important, as glucose is the primary source of energy for your brain! However high intakes of carbohydrates (especially from simple sugars) lead to a higher release of insulin of which stops you burning body fat while it's present!! So from now on I am going to have smaller portions of carbs/sugar in one sitting and I am going to swap out white rice for brown rice as it has a lower GI which means it will keep me fuller longer and keep my blood sugar levels healthier! There's no point be strong and fit if you aren't healthy on the inside! Eat your veggies people!!!!!!
