I usually lift in hypertrophy rep ranges of 8-12 but last week I felt like testing my strength so I warmed up with 135 and moved up 5 reps at a time with 185,225,245,275 and then this 295lb bench where I got 3 easy reps and hit a wall on my 4th but with a little help from a random gym goer I managed to get 4. After this heavy set I continued with more sets that you can check out by swiping 👈🏻. Once in a while you have to challenge yourself and step outside your comfort zone. #work #workout #training #tbt #igers #strong #liftheavy #powerlifting #bodybuilding #motivation #muscle #likeforlike #healthy #gym #fitness #fit #abs #photooftheday #selfie #goodmorning #happy #fun #guyswholift #cardio #yoga #exercise #fashion #like4follow #lifestyle #love

I’ve been coming here since 2004, this place has literally been by my side during some of the worst times of my life. Coming here to lift, I really do step away from this thing called life, which in return I get the best workout. Sometimes I come here and I never want to leave, this place is my safe haven. #fitness #home #training #liftheavy #truth #train #lockport #fitfam #fitspo #life #strong #motivation #tuesdaythoughts

True life: I skipped the gym today.
I had WAY too much to do after work today. I needed to go to the store, get last minute Thanksgiving things (eek!), Cook dinner, bake a cheesecake, shower, fold laundry (that I haven't folded in like.. 3 weeks) and try to relax with my fiance.
Instead, I came home, was mean to my fiance (thanks PMS), he went to the store for me (thank you I love you), I made dinner and guess what?? Worked out! I had to pause it to cook here and there, but I did it.
Now I'm going to prep this pumpkin cheesecake, finish cooking dinner, ignore the grocery bags on the floor, probably not fold laundry and get my fiance to forgive my PMS monster outburst 💁 (I'm sorry we didn't go to the gym today but hey, more time for red dead 2, right??) It's not always easy, but it's worth it. Trust me.

Bench earlier today was 265x4. 285x3. 300x2. Which I think is a 2 rep pr had a short pause on the first rep. #bench #benchpress #liftheavy #gains #exercise #workout #lifting #instagramfitness #crossfit #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #powerlifting #powerlifter #mutantnation #mtsnutrition

I WASN’T MY HAPPIEST BEING SUPER LEAN. ⁣

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Confidence in your body won’t come in 12 weeks or after a dieting phase. I say this because I totally get it. I used to say things like “I’ll be happier and have more confidence when I hit ‘x’ amount of weight and lose more fat from ‘x’ area. ⁣

Confidence doesn’t just come from appearance. Confidence comes from small positive self-talk everyday. Right now, I am genuinely the MOST confident then I have ever been. Creating confidence in yourself isn’t a 5 minute quick fix. It’s taken me a LONG time to feel this good about myself. ⁣

I love my body because I know I built it myself and worked so hard for it to look this way. I feel healthy, happy and appreciative of how strong my body is and what I’m capable of. ⁣I wanna know what are some ways that have helped you achieve #SelfCondience 👇🏼

Un poco de mi rutina de hoy! Intenten estos ejercicios a ver como les va😅 hoy hice un poco de todo, full body workout pero es mas difícil grabar en las tardes jeee

"Muscle is the power plant to burn calories. Building muscle helps move your joints and bones, but there are metabolic benefits." 💪🏼

Established research on strength training has focused on bone health and physical function in older adults. But what about its effects on the heart? 🤔
---
A study conducted by Iowa State University found that lifting weights for less than one hour per week reduced the risk of stroke by 40-70%! 🏋🏼🏋🏻‍♀️
---
The same dataset showed that resistance exercise also lowered the risk of diabetes and high cholesterol. ❤️

The million dollar question: will people make weightlifting a part of their lifestyle and stick with it?! 🏅

It important for healthcare providers to consider what physical, mental and social barriers our patients may have when encouraging lifestyle modification. 👩🏻‍⚕️

Had to remind myself this week that I’m allowed goodies but I want my focus to be on foods that make my body feel good
___
Because when I feel good I want to live fully. And I want to WANT that all of the time
___
I’ve been lifting for awhile now and I still have worse weeks than others where I lose site of this
___
Its not that I’ll ever be perfect with my diet, but it will become more routine and balanced overtime
___
Because I always return to the mindset of healthy consumption, a balance
___
Feeling shittay can be directly correlated with the food you’re eating
___
BUT we get to choose
___
So remind yourself of the dedication and drive you had just a few hours, or days ago when you promised you’d do the good thing for your bod/mind
___
Also- try to get real comfy with patience

This is so hard to post buttttt 😅
SO. the photo on the right is exactly ONE year from today... when the photo popped up in my Snapchat flashback I was so shocked and it was so hard to remember that time of my life because I remember taking that photo and immediately starting to cry... i had joined the gym the day before and i took this right after i came back. i was devastated and i felt worthless. ive always struggled with body image issues and i wanted to change, i couldnt handle it anymore.
The picture on the left was taken yesterday and the day before! Still struggling with being happy with what i see in the mirror but so was shocked to see the changes when compared to this time last year. cant wait to see where 2019 takes me !! #transformationtuesday #transformation #strength #weightlifting #gym #fitlife #oneyear #progress #oneyeartransformation #bodyimage #mentalgains #wow #lift #liftheavy #happy

Well... I can officially now say... I am a CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER.😌💪🏼 If you know we you know this is probably all I talk about.

Today is a very special day for me, 4 months ago I was doubting myself and constantly saying that I won’t wake up everyday for class, I won’t do well, that it’s toooo hard and I suck at school... But I proved to myself that if you REALLY want something, you get passed all of those little voices in your head & you just simply DO IT.

These past 4 months have been filled with Education, Practice & The biggest confidence boost for me. I have taken my fitness to another level as well as becoming more disciplined in not only the gym but in my regular life.

This is only the beginning , I know I am just getting started but it feels so good to know I am going after what I want & I know I am going to put all my effort in becoming a great trainer and a great role model.

Thank you to my teachers who always pushed us and showed us we have so much more potential then we think we do! Our instructors taught us the science behind exercise & taught us how to work with different clients & situations, leaving us ready and confident to take on anybody who seeks our help!!
