Looks crazy unhealthy right?

Not too bad actually, made with zero greek yoghurt.

How to Banish Man Boobs Forever... .. Spike your Testosterone levels and explode your tricep growth with this one exercise.

If you saw my IG story today, then this is a follow up to that.

Weighted dips are arguably the best compound exercise for packing on tricep mass. Compound multijointed exercises not only burn a ton of calories but they also elevate testosterone levels, leaving you feeling like a man as well looking like a man.

They are also great for building the lower chest, giving you that clearly defined chest and ab separation. No more saggy man boobs.

I must ad a caveat to all of this, this will only work if you control what goes on your mouth and remain consistent with good nutritional habits and appropriate exercise stimulus.

In addition with bodyweight exercises where you are moving your body through space, such as this, there is a higher level of neuromuscular activation compared to exercises involving a single limb, leading to the recruitment and activation of more muscle fibers. This is due to additional demands placed on the body.

☕️Before we swan dive in, I'm not saying this to piss people off or make money. I get zero monetary benefit from this and, realistically, I’ll get a fair few unfollows. And that’s ok. Because how many followers you have is irrelevant. It’s about the relationship you have with each individual. And my relationship with you values honesty & trust above all else. Always. No matter what.
-
🦄That said, most of the people who use Apple Cider Vinegar (acv) were either told by a friend and/or articles online about the supposed benefits. And that's fine. But if you really dig into the research you'll find most of the benefits either don't exist or are massively exaggerated.
-
☕️Here’s the un-biased truth.
-
🍟ACV can reduce blood sugar. But only if you take it with a meal. And, more importantly, reduced blood sugar does NOT mean you burn more fat. It just means your blood sugar is reduced. And you know what else reduces blood sugar? Eating nutritious fucking food.
-
🍕Along the same lines, many report ACV helping aid in digestion. Research isn’t conclusive one way or another, but listen to your body. If you feel better with it, great, take it. If you feel worse with it, don’t. It‘s as simple as that.
-
🍔Most importantly, don’t mistake ACV for a miracle cure. A lot of people write about ACV as if it’s the sorcerers stone of fat loss, gut health, & mastering the Deathly Hallows. If it was, trust me, I’d chug it like it was Felix Felicis.
-
🥞It’s wicked affordable and even though it tastes like fermented foot sweat, I’d 100% take a shot everyday if it had all the benefits some would have you believe.
-
☕️Is it bad? No. Are there some benefits. Sure. For some people more than others. But per usual the simplest answer holds true —> eat your fruits/veggies/protein and moderate amounts of carbs and fats while paying attention to your total calories. Exercise at least 2-3 days/week. And have a lotttt of sex. Kidding. But seriously. Love you.

Cable Crossovers a Waste of Time?

I wanted to illustrate a point with this crap picture, for many years, when I knew a lot less, I took a cultish approach to training.

I used to laugh at exercises like the cable crossover, claiming they're for sissy's, however, older and wiser I know recognise they have their place in a good well balanced hypertrophy program.

Achieving maximum overload is a limitations of a cable crossovers, if your goal is growing your muscle, what we call hypertrophy, then overload is just one factor in that pursuit.

Cable crossovers can give you a greater range of motion thereby activating more muscle fibres, especially if you take your hand right over (you know .. like actually CROSS THEM OVER as the name implies!). You can alter the angle to hit muscles  fibres that are difficult to hit with your standard bench.

Bottom line: Cable crossovers are a great auxillary exercise if your goal is hypertrophy, in other words don't skip heavy flat/incline benching and weighted dips for 50 sets of cable crossovers, but do include a couple of sets in your overall program at the end of your chest workout.

If you're looking for a program that takes care of all that for you.... :-) Or you could just follow @kaanfitness where people who are serious about their training come :-)

Even though I don't train arns much I know how much people love training arms.

Ramadan maybe over but your weight loss doesn't have to be. Keep the momentum going try IF.. 💥INTERMITTENT FASTING CHEAT SHEET💥
New to intermittent fasting and don't know how to get started?
-
This is what you do.
-
SKIP BREAKFAST
Push your first meal 5-6 hours after waking up to get started with IF (intermittent fasting). It is flexible and based off of the time you actually wake up. So if you normally wake up at 6am during the week and then 10am on the weekend, you are still ensuring optimal fasting time. If you were just eating during a "feeding window" from 2pm-8pm you can see how fasting from 6am to 2pm is a big difference then 10am to 2pm.
-
DRINK MORE WATER
If you are fasting you need to be staying really hydrated. Often times people will mistake the sensation of thirst for hunger. So by staying really hydrated you are going to eliminate a lot of those extra hunger pangs. Aim to consume your body weight in ounces of water to make sure you are adequately hydrated.
-
BLUNT HUNGER WITH CAFFEINE
Caffeine is a stimulant that has an appetite reducing affect. No only that but it will give you a bit of an energy boost to start off your day. I like to drink black coffee during my fasts becasue I like the taste and enjoy it a lot. You may enjoy a zero calorie energy drink instead or even just seltzer water. Seltzer water doesn't necessarily have caffeine but it is a great change up with some flavor from regular water.
-
STAY BUSY
Keep yourself busy during your fast. So focus on being producing and getting sh*t done. When you're focused on productivity you will have less time to worry about food and hunger. IF also promotes mental clarity, and focus, meaning you can get more done!
-
STRATEGICALLY USE FRUIT
NOW I know that eating a piece of fruit does technically break your fast. BUT the main purpose of using intermittent fasting is to push your meals back later in the day. This makes your meals larger and more satisfying, making it easier to adhere to a fat loss plan, or maintain your weight. So by having a banana or apple for example you can satisfy that little bit of hunger, and push that first big meal back another couple hours.

Coming towards the end of Ramadan fasting and the lack of sleep, food and water the past 28 days has really started to catch up.

Yesterday the fatigue and general feeling of being drained and tired was overwhelming to the point I was hesitant about fasting today.  To top it off,  I got struck with a bout of insomnia  last night.  This morning I woke up thinking 'No way, I can't do this, I'm feeling just too beaten up'. Not having a choice I got up early having had little sleep, compounded from the last few days as well, and carried on with my day.  As luck has it, today was gym day.

Even though mentally I thought 'I can't do this', I dragged myself to the gym in the evening.

Lo and behold! Ended up having a good workout even managed  to squeeze a few rep PR's'  as always endorphins are flowing and I feel a lot better for it.  That's all while being  severely sleep deprived and no food or water for 18 hours.

I really did not think I could do it today, was going to give it a miss.

Our bodies are capable of doing amazing things.

Whether it's healthy to do something like this is another matter.

Not losing fat?
-
It must be the carbs, right?
-
Wrong.
-
I’ve had people DM me thanking me for being blunt with this info, so if it comes off as really blunt, me saying you’re wrong about carbs — If you think they’re the problem — sorry, but you’re still wrong.
-
Carbs aren’t the problem.
-
If you aren’t losing fat, you’re consuming too many calories.
-
If you lower carbs or go keto for 5 days, I bet you’ll lose like 2-5 pounds.
-
But losing water and glycogen (stored muscle/liver energy) isn’t losing fat.
-
And if you lose that weight, but eat a sandwich or “carbs” on day 6 you bet you’ll gain the weight back.
-
You gained water and glycogen. Not fat.
-
But if you stayed in a calorie deficit the entire time, you’d be in the fat burning process no matter what the scale says over that really short period.
-
Here’s the deal:
-
It’s hard to manage calories if your carb sources are regularly found on the right. If that’s your daily nutrition, good luck managing calories consistently.
-
If your carb sources are from the left, you’ll feel full, energetic and have less cravings. You’ll have an easier time eating less.
-
Both sides are carbs.
-
Right side is dense in calories, contains a lot of fat calories, provides not much nutrients and has little to no fibre.
-
The left is nutrient dense, low in calories, has lots of nutrients, and has fibre.
-
Huge difference.
-
But it’s not the carbs. And if you still think, you’re wrong 😉❤️ Follow @kaanfitness

Repost from Laurenpak22, I think a lot of people need to see this a basic movment that's important to get right

ARE YOU MAKING THESE COMMON PUSHUP MISTAKES??
-
What’s up Achievers?! @laurenpak22 here with some pushup tips for you! As you can see in the top photo, I’m shrugging my shoulders and allowing my elbows to point out at a 90 degree angle from my body. This not only over-engages the upper trap muscles, which tend to be overdeveloped already, but it also puts the shoulders in a vulnerable position. If you ever experience shoulder discomfort during pushups, this positioning error may be the cause!
-
In the bottom photo, you can see that I have “anti-shrugged” my shoulders by creating space between my upper traps and ears. This engages the lat muscles and relaxes the upper traps. I also have my elbows closer to my body, pointing about 45 degrees away, which helps to keep my shoulders in a more optimal position!
-
Share with a friend who’s working on their pushups, and give this post a double tap if you found it helpful! Until next time, peace, love, and muscles!✌️💙💪

I don't find food like this satisfying or tasty (like who eats dandelion?!). I also doubt their zero calorie, instead I don't think anyone could eat enough of this stuff to make them fat.  What do you think?  This is what the original poster had to say: 🥗ZERO CALORIE GREENS🥗
.
Which one do you like?
.
.
These leafy greens are the best for fat loss.
.
Why? Besides being a net zero calorie good...they’re also loaded with nutrients, water & fiber.
.
This will keep your body nourished, and your tummy satisfied...which is key when your trying to #diet & keep your #weightlossprogress on track.
.
Hope this helps!

One of the most important things we need to address before we can make any lasting change is our mindset.
Stop seeing working out as a burden, instead consider the fact that for so many people in the world having the time, finances and facility to workout is a luxury.

Instead of seeing eating healthy as some sort of punishment regard it as rewarding your body.

Start doing these things and start seeing the changes.  If you're in a cycle of gaining and losing weight you'll have to adopt this way of thinking for a permanent change.

If you want big well developed arms you can't neglect triceps, since they make up two thirds of your upper arms.

In addition you need to balance your biceps training with triceps training.

The Triceps kickback is an underrated exercises that are neglected by many, including myself for years.

With your arms in this position you're able to hit the muscle fibres that are closest to the rear delts at the point of origin.

If you're concerned about the lack of tension at the bottom, you don't really need to be, you can use a cable
