Sometimes we get really hard cases that break my heart. And then sometimes, we get cases like this that make my heart so full. I was already this little man’s second trainer for what was described as a severe resource guarding case. The other trainer was using force, pain, and punishment, and the behavior escalated. The vet recommend medication and euthanasia was discussed. In one session, we had this guy leaving his rawhide and allowing us to exchange it with a treat. How did we do this? We used these super cool things rooted in SCIENCE called...desensitization and counter conditioning!!!! Pavlov (and skinner) are always on your shoulder. You don’t need fear, pain, force, or coercion to resolve your dog’s issue. I am so happy that this family found us, and now we have the opportunity to shape this puppy’s future for the better. #myheartisfull #resourceguarding #sciencebasedtraining #forcefree #happyday #dogsof512 #rescuedog #ilovemyjob

A change is as good as a rest ⚡️.
.
.
This week was tough for me . I have been very stressed on some new projects I’m working on and my energy level have been really really low. I have only gotten 4-5 hrs of sleep. .
But When I went to do something different something out of my schedule my energy levels changed .all of the sudden I felt like I was back ! I left my project to side and focused on myself. That ONE thing I did out of my routine helped me feel brand new. I’m ready to finish this week . .
.HAPPY FRIDAY !⚡️ we made it ⚡️🙌🏽😌.

⚡️Makeup session today & let me tell you all I was SOO SOO out of my comfort zone. I’ve never done something like this before. But being out of your comfort zone is not always a bad thing . It teaches you and makes you stronger. .
⚡️I realized that In order to get to where I want to be & to reach my goal I will have to do many things out of my comfort zone . I already have and will continue to do so. .
.
⚡️For those who know me or been following me for a while know that I have always been very reserved & low key. So even things like posting constantly or posting my workouts was uncomfortable at the beginning. Shoot I didn’t even know how to edit my videos I had kenia do it for me 😂 .
And now I workout anywhere post anything I feel will be helpful to you with no problem . . ⚡️MY POINT IT YOU HAVE TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE - YOU HAVE TO BE OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE IN ORDER TO GROW . .

⚡️Make your visions so clear that your fears become irrelevant ⚡️
.
A vision of representing myself to what I truly believe and showing others a healthy balanced lifestyle has triggered a side of me where fears are completely out of my mind.
The fear of failing fuels me. .
I spend 2.5 years working 2 jobs , 7 days a week being miserable. No time for anything or anyone. Only regret I have is not starting sooner ...
Don’t let the fear stop you ... you got this 💪🏽💭 .

What a beautiful afternoon to spend at the river ☀️

Shreds vs bulk mode ❓🤔
.
What do you guys like best❓
.
I personally prefer the bulky look because I feel a lot healthier, fill out my clothes, and my performance in the gym is much better.
.
The only reason I get shredded is to compete in bodybuilding. I love the challenge of getting my body to a very low body fat %. Also, training can get boring after doing it for years on end, so competing gives me something to strive for.
.
171lbs on LEFT (6% BF)
194lbs on RIGHT (~10-12%BF)

Top 5 exercises QUADS!! The quads are the easiest to target amongst the muscle groups in our legs, but we all know you look pretty bad ass with some strong ass quads, cuz everyday's not arm day bruh. We have some basics a.k.a must haves and some, a bit more creative to lit up le quads🔥😍
Anatomy : vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius, rectus femoris

Main function: knee extension, hip flexion

1) squats : now you better not skip squats on leg day! We all know that squats are extremely compound, but it is a very quad dominant exercise and there's no way around it.
2)Leg press - go for atleast 2times your body weight, the best one, for isolating your quads
3) Leg extension - amazing for the quads, you can target different muscles on the quads by changing the foot position, so if you want more activation in the lateral head, point your feet outward and for activating the teardrop point them inward.
4) sumo squat walks - sumo is for the glutes. We know. But try it before you knock it.

5)in and out plyo squats - end leg day with some ploy moves to kill them. We've added weights, but they're not necessary!

Here we perform a metabolic efficiency test at the Kaiser Sports Medicine, Endurance Lab, for Mike so we can help him figure out the “why” to his frustrating fitness plateau. The metabolic efficiency test provides insights in to fuel utilization. Is Mike using the right fuel for the right intensity?

Equipped with this information, along with understanding Mike’s training and nutrition, we can help answer the “why” and provide strategies to reinvigorate Mike’s training and fitness gains. #sciencebasedtraining #maximizetrainingtime #trainingtools

It’s #wetwednesday ! Duchess just literally stood like this cooling off for so long 😆

Just finished our six week course with Tilly!
Her parents contacted me because she was displaying aggression towards visitors in and around the home, and on walks. We diagnosed that most of Tilly's aggression was showing due to a strong fear of strangers, and a bit of defensive displays around her family and home.
We gave Tilly's family a better knowledge of her body language and what it means, so that they can better understand what she is trying to say before she has to get aggressive.
We made sure they had a training plan built just for Tilly, using lots of proximity training and counter conditioning to help her get over her fears, and help her family show her that they can be consistent, kind leaders that she can look to for guidance and trust when she feels threatned!
I am confident with time, patience, and a ton of consistency, Tilly can become the relaxed trusting dog they want her to be!

“Remember back in school- some of your teachers made learning very easy while others made learning a chore. You managed to get a grasp of the material no matter what but when the teacher put some thought into how to teach, it made learning so much easier. That’s what you ought to be doing with your dog: making learning as easy and enjoyable as possible.” - Pamela J Reid, Ph.D. 🐾
🐾
I think we all had some teachers who made our lives miserable and others who kept learning fun. I totally had some teachers who forced me to stay up all night trying to figure something out, usually ending in tears of frustration and defeat. I was getting the answers just because I had to. 🐾
🐾
I had to take grade 12 chemistry twice. The first time I managed to grasp the concepts enough to barely pass the class, I dreaded the class and hated every minute of it. The second time around I had a different teacher, and he presented the same information in a way that totally made sense to me. He broke the concepts down little by little and made sure his students understood it not just so they could pass a test, but really understand it in its entirety. I remember going through problems with the elated feeling of “yes! I know this! Throw me another question.” To have the same information taught in such contrasting ways really shows what a difference teaching methods can make.(and I did pass that class the second time with flying colours). 🐾
🐾
When I work with my dogs I also want them to be excited and motivated to learn. I love when they grasp a concept and are rewarded for it, and they radiate “yes! I got it! Try me again!” Sure, aversive training methods work well enough that the dog can pass the test, but they dread school and I’m sure would have tears of frustration and defeat if they could. The teacher analogy is a great one to use next time you encounter someone using aversive methods with their dogs.

It’s funny how day by day you feel like nothing changes . But when you look back ... so many things are different...
.
Eat well , balance & work towards a goal WITH A PLAN. Don’t depend on a scale weight to show you how much you have progressed . We look at our bodies EVERY SINGLE DAY so we don’t notice even the slightest changes ... UNTIL you compare them . Take pictures , measurements , pay attention to how you FEEL , your performance when your workout , & specially how much your MINDSET CHANGES . If you reach for the water instead of the soda - you are in the right path my friend 😌⚡️ #happyhumpday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
