You know why I believe in the work?
.
Because Ive lived it.
.
I know what happens when I do the work.
.
Swipe right.
.
I also know what happens when I dont.
.
Business/Relationships/Physique its all based in the same discipline: WORK.
.
Ive struggled with my weight my entire life. Growing up I was a fat little doughboy...and the world let me know it constantly.
.
I was a pretty happy kid but somewhere along the line I started hating people in general for the amount of bullshit I got for being fat...and that kinda stuck.
.
When I graduated high school I got into lifting and eating properly and got in...and stayed in pretty good shape...which led to us getting into our line of business in 1999. (first pic May 05 240lb BW..Im in the hat).
.
When our businesses really started taking off...I got away from the habits of working out & eating right and let myself go...I got fat...really fat. I was super depressed, lazy, unhealthy & completely miserable. (Second pic Jan 16 330lb BW).
.
When I had enough I went back to my good habits of training and eating properly and guess what happened? I GOT RESULTS. (Last pic taken Yesterday at 270lb bw)
.
The point I want to get across is this:
.
I know what its like.
.
I know what its like to not want to go try on clothes.
.
I know what its like to avoid social situations.
.
I know what its like to never go to a pool.
.
I know what its like to hate yourself.
.
I know what its like to look in the mirror and see a mountain so big & a journey so long you dont think its possible to conquer it.
.
I know what its like for people to say ignorant shit.
.
I know what it feels like to feel out of control.
.
...but I also know what its like to decide enough is enough.
.
I know what its like to say: "No fucking more!"
.
...and I know what its like to do the work.
.
Am I where I want to be: HELL NO!
.
...but Im hell of a lot better than I was a year ago.
.
No matter how big your mountain...or how long your journey...DOING THE WORK...WORKS!
.
Anything else you tell yourself about time, circumstances, genetics etc is just you justifying another day in a life you hate...and no amount of work...no matter how hard...is worse than that.

Sometimes it's okay to slow down just don't stop. Low intensity training these past few weeks duo to my body breaking down from all the high intensity trainings. Followed by 10 grams of BCAA from @1stphorm after/during my trainings, it helps me maintain lean muscle tissues and recover much faster. Let's get to work. You won't see me stop ever, trust me on that. #iam1stphorm

If you don't like what you see in the mirror then change it. It's simple. You can either whine or work ✌🏼

I post a lot of stuff in efforts to motivate others. I'm posting this to motivate myself.
_

I've been having a hard time with training and nutrition the last couple weeks. I'm not sure what it is, but I've just been a pussy for lack of a better term. Most people would say fuck it, next week I'll get back on track.... I've done it plenty of times, but I'm starting today. Right now. I'm getting my shit together. If I wait till Monday I'll be that much further behind and only have more work to do.
_

Who else has been in this position???

I guess this is a way of holding myself accountable.... _

You and your negative vibes...u can kiss it πŸ’‹
.
My passion and my journey are things not everyone is going to understand and that's ok. In a world where everyone wants to tear the next person down to build themselves up I challenge you to be uplifting. Everyone has their own purpose lead by passion and no matter what it is it's something you feel inside that you don't have to explain to anyone else. DO YOU. No matter what it is. That is all...

It's okay to be scared. It's okay to be nervous. You should be scared, and you should be nervous. You should be terrified by the thought of something, and do it anyways - Some of the things that I choose to do scare the shit out of me, some days my thoughts are consumed with fear of the possible outcomes & some days I question why I do the things that I do. I'd be lying if I said the thought of stepping on stage in 8 days doesn't absolutely terrify me. But choosing to do things that scare you are what cause growth and development. If I stayed inside my comfort zone, I would never make progress, I would never grow. Embrace being scared, that's what life's all about πŸ‘†πŸ»

Fml. Getting that Armageddon workout in as my start. #1stphorm #iam1stphorm #cbfitness #mojofitness #weare1stphorm #duespaid

Cable crossovers always get the blood pumping!
I'll do high rep cable crossovers at the end of my chest workout, always delivers that skin tearing pump that I'm constantly chasing.

Goal is to hit this many reps with 185 this year.
.
For now, 165 for 15 will have to do and thats a personal best. Lowest weight this week was 174, so still getting leaner and stronger at the same.damn.time.
.
I for sure have to work on my squats for this many reps, since I only worked with 175. Well at least I got 20 reps on the last set. Gonna try to work up to at least 205 in squats while getting 185 on bench for 15. Let's see how this works out.

Not technically flexing, but this qualifies for some #FlexFriday material...
β–ͺ️
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is AWESOME for torching body fat, and the options are nearly limitless - use your imagination - sprints, tire flips, sled push, sled pull, battle rope, ball slams, spin bike...you catch my drift...
β–ͺ️
BUT, if you're feeling half dead at the end of a workout, go with something REAL primal to get you jacked up - and then record it to really hold yourself accountable on the effort level πŸ˜œπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏼
β–ͺ️
I mess with the actual intervals depending on the activity, and the hammer weight makes a pretty big difference when it comes to training for speed (like 8-12 lbs) versus power (more like 16-20lbs).
β–ͺ️
If this is a new exercise for you, I would recommend an 8 pound hammer, and take it slow… Getting used to the weight, balance, and recoil - also switching hands can be tricky… And if you hit the "bouncy" part of the tire, your second rep is going to be off of your face (obviously I wouldn't knowπŸ˜³πŸ™„) - once you're comfortable, try 10 rounds of 20s max effort and 40s recovery - and when I say "max effort," I mean like channel your inner Matthew McConaughey in Reign of Fire I'm killing a fucking dragon "max effort." πŸ‰ πŸ”₯β›πŸ”¨

Friday Morning Pump. We are coming back bigger and crazy lean this time around. πŸ’―#committedtothebulk #growtime #staytuned

The last thing I wanted to do tonight was train. Getting my ass to the gym tonight took a lot of driving around convincing myself to go... But here I am. Pay those dues no matter what πŸ’°

Find someone who is supportive and pushes you every step of the way. Someone who you can be with while you find yourself but also growing together. A person who challenges you. An individual who when you don't want to get to the gym makes your pre workout for you and tells you that you don't have any other option than to go. Someone who doesn't mock you for eating healthy, and stands up for you when others say "well I'm gonna die anyways so I'm gonna enjoy all the food until then". A partner. A wolf to your pack. Someone whose willing to do whatever it takes to grow and to be successful and encourages you to do the same.πŸ–€

Branched Chained Amino Acids, perfect for intra-workout,
What's BCAAs?! are essential amino acids that increase muscle growth. Very important in preventing the body from slipping into a catabolic state where that hard earned muscle gets lost .. -
How to take it: while working out or even as a refreshing drink during the day (especially if you aren't big on drinking water πŸ’¦) one scoop will ensure the body to stay in an anabolic state (building muscle and burning fat) πŸ’₯Order yours from my link in the bio section πŸ’₯

Torso doesn't look much different but the arms are coming along nicely! Back down to 186!! My goal is 175! I got this! #ilovethissport #gonerunning #skillisnotgivenitisearned #iam1stphorm #workinprogress #fitness #arcticcat_snow #armday

I needed a big back day. I get in my head when my body weight trends up unintentionally. I'm pretty damned mentally tough. But for some reason those unexplained higher fluctuations can really get to me. I'm learning to take the approach where I don't let my good moments take me too high, and I do t allow my low moments to bring me down. Through it all, just like today I'll go in and put in work that I can be proud of. Any enjoy every moment of it.
