Nothing fancy, nothing overly impressive, no big numbers, just reps for Jesus!

Petition for this weather to last forever! โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

A couple of nights ago on the Luas this Munster lad came up to me and told me I look a lot @mrciantwomey! I was absolutely chuffed because I assumed with this lad being from Munster, Cian Twomey must be a rugby player, and aren't all rugby players handsome, built, dashing individuals who are lusted over by women! After a quick Google image search it turns out Cian Twomey is very much not a rugby player, in fact it doesn't look like he's ever really played sport before! What he does do is imitate his girlfriend online and gets a shit tonne of views for doing so. Fair play mate, whatever works for you! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Anyway, I thought I'd be mad not to take advantage of this apparent similarity so here's Cian Twomeys potential one year transformation! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

40 foot virgin! ๐ŸŒŠ

Not a dumbbell in sight! ๐ŸŒ… #summersolstice

It's always nice to have old lifts to look back on to see how far you've come!

Hitting 70kg on the flat bench 23 months ago versus a nice incline PB yesterday of 70kg x 8!
.
Nothing overly special but you can't beat a bit of progress!

Went to the dark side earlier this week & came home with a messy PB!
.
Really liked how tight Sumo allows you to get. The lack of lower back pain is awesome too! Form is far from perfect here but for a first go I'll take it!
.
Some may say Sumo is cheating but if it's good enough for @steficohen it's good enough for me!

BABY ABS... ๐Ÿ˜
.
Whether it's competition or holiday prep it feels like the whole gym is on the stairmaster/treadmill these days trying to find those abdominals lost sometime last Christmas.
.
When the faintest lines reappear people lose their shit. They stick around for maybe a month or two until the person loses the will to live claiming the lean lifestyle just isn't maintainable, I need to stop starving myself and have a life.
.
THIS IS ALL BOLLOX!
.
For just over 2 years I've had abs. Since last October I've literally been hoovering carbs and I still have abs. I haven't done a crunch/leg raise or cardio in the gym this year. I'm not advocating a lack of cardio vascular exercise, that's just not what I go to the gym for.
.
So why am I different?
.
๐Ÿ”นI'm obsessed with lifting heavy. For benching/squatting/deadlifting heavy you need a strong core. Look at any well known powerlifter who cares about the weight they're carrying around. Insane numbers, proper nutrition, a heavy bar and abs. Put more weight on the bar and control it!
.
๐Ÿ”นI don't drink & I rarely eat fast food. I hate beer & wine & I've never ordered a Dominos. Some may think that's sad or that they couldn't possibly adhere to that lifestyle but at the end of the day it's about what's more important to you & what makes you happy. Hitting PR's and having an impressive physique matters to me & makes me happy, consuming junk doesn't.
.
๐Ÿ”นCrunches are ridiculous! You cannot crunch or leg raise away body fat or a takeaway. I used to do a few hundred on my bed EVERY night as a teen cause I wanted abs. It didn't work. I was slim/skinny but had no definition. If you're already peeled well then yeah, they're probably gonna make your abs more 'blockier' but if you have stubborn body fat and you think crunches are gonna give you a six pack when your nutrition isn't nailed down your gonna be disappointed.
.
Abs are very maintainable, it all comes down to choices. I chose to lift heavy, eat clean, not drink and avoid junk. And rather than starving myself, I'm actually sick of food at the moment! But if you don't eat you don't get stronger! .
It's simple math, happy shredding!

It's great to mix things up every so often. The same exercise for the same amount of sets & reps for the umpteenth time can get incredibly dull!
.
@hypertrophycoach & @smith.julian are two excellent guys to follow if you wanna add a bit of spice to your workouts. This particular exercise came from a video Joe Bennett put up but I also performed a lat pull down variation which involved lying down on the cable row which came from a video Julian posted.
.
Lying down on the bench takes all the momentum out of the movement and allows you to drive all the tension through the delts! A serious boulder burn! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
