Mid 30โ€™s never felt so good ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผyou know what I love about lifting weights? Itโ€™s like the clock runs in reverse ๐Ÿ”™ I feel younger, more energetic & fitter than I ever did in my 20โ€™s! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Itโ€™s never too late to start & youโ€™re never too old to get the body of your dreams ๐Ÿ’œ

I posted an instastory of me doing a 70kg deadlift 3RM the other day (this is 60kg for 6 reps). Wow there are some douchebags on the internet. I got DMs like, โ€œfor someone who thinks theyโ€™re strong, thatโ€™s pretty shit lmaoโ€ & โ€œlol thatโ€™s my warm upโ€ & of course some form police turned up to the party ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
Iโ€™ve always had niggles in my hips, I used to get teased for my โ€œwaddleโ€ walk. But it wasnโ€™t until I started lifting weights in my late 20s & had an X-ray at the chiropractor, that I found out I had #scoliosis and & a twisted pelvis.
.
Itโ€™s not a severe case, but enough to cause pain in my hips & back. It means that some things are off limits... like running & plyo workouts ๐Ÿ˜– Iโ€™ll never be amazingly strong at deadlifts. Iโ€™m not one of those girls who can squat 100kg... and Iโ€™m ok with that ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
.
The fact that I am now dead lifting 70kg still blows my mind ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Swipe left โžก๏ธ to see my 55kg rack pull 1RM 3 years ago!! We all start somewhere ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
I could have given up on my fitness goals. I might have thought Iโ€™d never be good enough. I could have listened to the Chiro & stopped lifting. I could have let the internet trolls win ๐Ÿ‘น But I donโ€™t choose to be defined by my limitations and I donโ€™t care what people think of my abilities either!! I never thought Iโ€™d be able to do things I do now ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ .
I hope this motivates you to keep fighting, to believe in yourself & keep doing what you love regardless of the naysayers. You got this ๐Ÿ’•

When bae catches you mid-set on some side raise & you act all nonchalant but still manage get all the good angles ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜Ž #actnatural #imnotposing #okmaybealittle #stillabikinicompetitor #quarterturntotheright

I never go heavy when training in a circuit style like this... no need when the muscle is under constant tension. For these exercises I find I get much better results doing lower weight, higher rep & keeping rest periods short. It's not always about lifting heavy ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ It'll burrrrrrrn like hell... JUST๐Ÿ”ฅDON'T๐Ÿ”ฅSTOP. That's an order ๐Ÿ˜‰

I want to know where yโ€™all are from in the world! ๐ŸŒŽ comment below! โ˜บ๏ธ

CURRENT SHAPE ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
.
Weighing about 55kg/121lbs (although it can fluctuate a couple kgs either way due to water retention usually after a cheat meal #hellocarbs ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฆ) So I donโ€™t get hung up on the number... and you shouldnโ€™t either! #fuckthescale
.

Training far less than I normally do (only 3 times a week if I even manage that!) because my biz is keeping me too busy... but thatโ€™s life hey? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ just got go with the flow. Canโ€™t be #superwoman all the time ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
Not tracking macros, not weighing food. Just eating healthy & intuitively with a cheat day when I feel like it (still #intermittentfasting though) ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ
.
Feels good to be able to live freely and not have the gym & nutrition dictate my life! #nomorecompprep ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Oh & I still have abs? Say whaaaat? ๐Ÿ˜

Smith Machine Kickbacks are an awesome glute isolation exercise ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ”ฅ
.

But do you know how to set up correctly??๐Ÿง Avoid crunching into your lower back & make sure you're activating the right muscles with these 4 STEPS:
. ๐Ÿ‘ Set the stoppers at the right height, so the bar can rest at the correct starting position, allowing you to get under the bar easily (I normally set it at the 3rd one up!)
๐Ÿ‘ Use a strap or booty band to secure the latch to the poles so that it doesn't catch on the hooks mid-set... super annoying! Smooooth reps hallelujah! This is a lifesaver, trust me ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‰
๐Ÿ‘Make sure you have the correct knee placement on your mat. Simply kneel with your back up against the bar & then keeping your knees where they are, lean forward onto all fours. (If you're too close, you won't be able to get full leg extension & you'll most likely feel it in your lower back!) ๐Ÿ˜–
๐Ÿ‘Keep your spine neutral, hips square & in line with your knees, brace your core and push through your heel UP & BACK towards the ceiling. You can even try different foot positionings - I find pointing my feet outwards slightly allows me to get full activation!

Like a fine ๐Ÿท I got better with age ๐Ÿ˜‰ 13 year old Skinny Shelley on the left was a shy & awkward geek ๐Ÿค“ who hated sport. She got called names like โ€œwitchโ€ & โ€œgappyโ€ on the daily because she dyed her hair black & had really bad teeth. Kids can be mean ๐Ÿ˜ž .
Never in a million years did I think Iโ€™d end up like the woman on the left! Are you kidding me?! NEVER. Now, at 33 years old Iโ€™m strong, Iโ€™m confident & I know my worth... #lookwhatyoumademedo ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ and the best bit about it? I get to teach other women how to do it too ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค— .
It doesnโ€™t matter who you were or where youโ€™re at right now. Youโ€™re never too old & itโ€™s never too late to start! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
