Ok guys time for a little show and tell. First time i do this so go easy on me. I took a couple videos of my main lifts today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First one is my 1+ set with my training max of 225Lb. I was able to get 4 reps, and I’m pretty happy with that. It means adding 5Lb next week on that TM. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Second video is my last set of sumo deadlifts. This was my 8th set at 160Lb. The way #nsuns is structured the second lift has 2 warm up sets at 120x5 and 140x5. Then 6 sets of 160 for x3 x5 x7 x4 x6 and x8. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know the numbers are not huge but 5 weeks ago 225Lb was my one rep max. So I’m pretty happy with how things are going right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any form checks will also be greatly appreciated! I know the angles are a bit weird but this is the first time i actually see myself doing these movements. Thanks!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #snnsportsnutrition#fitfam#fitness#squats#deadlift#formcheck#legday#ufcgym#2plates#workouts#workoutvideos
#squatday#bestday I have been liking warming up #squats with the #gobletsquat on a #bosuball as a way to warm up knees and ankles. I feel like it's a good #stability drill and have been putting a band around my knees for working the hips as well and getting extra #glute activation. It's a killer at the end of heavy squats too. I hit 260lb on my nine sets of heavy lifts with 135 and 185 warm-ups with knee bands. I am happy with that weight and working towards a three plater training weight! #nsuns has been a great powerlifting #progam and I have made some great progress. Before squats we did an hour of #bouldering and post squats twenty minutes of #cycling so great day today!
Starting today, I will be sharing my workout routine in pictures ! I am currently doing the 5-day nSuns Linear Progression program. Lightwork Monday with 9 sets of bench press and 8 sets of overhead press with no more than 85% of training max ! #workoutmotivation#nsuns#lafitness#2018goals#philadelphia
If you need to a good exercise program, I recommend this app nsuns. My wonderful boyfriend helped me get it set up today. It’s awesome! #nsuns#exercise#charter
There is silliness saying that powerlifting movements like deadlifts contribute to lower back pain. Practiced safely, this classic exercise is an investment in long-term core stability, posture and injury prevention. Seen here: 345 lbs x 5, admittedly a bit jerky.
First week of nSuns is complete! It's my first week back in the gym and it feels great to finish this week! I started light because I wanted to give my body time to adjust to the new volume of the program since I was previously doing TNB-28 and StrongLifts 5x5 before aaaaaaand the fact that I haven't been to the gym in a few months. Week 1: ________________________________________ Starting Stats: Finishing Stats: BP: 105LBs ----------> 110LBs S: 110LBs ----------> 115LBs DL: 145LBs ----------> 150LBs OHP: 75LBs ----------> 80LBs ________________________________________
I've been lifting on and off for a few years now, going through some programs like Stronglifts / TNB-32 and have had great success with them but this year I'm going to start off with nSuns. This program has blown up on Reddit and people have seen great results with it and hopefully I will too. I'll be going to the gym 5 days a week instead of 3 days so it'll take some adjusting to get used to. I'm planning to stay on this plan and add accessories to it throughout the year. What are some programs you guys have had success with? . . . . . . . . . . . #nsuns#stronglifts5x5#fitness#fitnessmotivation#gyming#transformationinprogress#goals#newyearsresolution
