Thank you @lukeaustinfitness for the spontaneous video 😂
Time under tension week again on the last pull down with wide grip, slow reps up and down 👊🏻 Upper body has definitely gained some size since the start of this year and noticing a lot more muscle definition. Looking forward to what else I can bring to this year 🏋🏻‍♀️ (excuse the hair whip, long hair problems 💁🏻‍♀️)

My days have been long lately and I’m glad to have some workouts to do at home when I don’t have time at the gym. Trainer tip of the week: slow down. Quality of reps is more important than quantity. This is hard to do because 1) working out is hard and we just want to get it over with 😆, and 2) we’re so busy that we don’t even know how to slow down. But doing holds and slower movements will definitely take your workouts up a notch and give you more control over the weights and your body.

Presses are always good for the chest. But what really gives the aesthetics look to the chest is the flys.
First exercise: Incline Flys
Second exercise: Cable Flys
Third Exercise: Decline Flys
Flys are always going to be the number one exercise to improve your chest. It’ll be your best bet when wanting to isolate the muscle. It is not a heavy lifting. You need to go light and focus on the contraction of the muscle with higher reps. The more of contraction, the better the growth. 💪🏾💪🏾

I can’t even do a normal pull-up 😐 But tag a friend that should try this!

Eccentric training makes everything twice as heavy and effective! •
The eccentric/muscle lengthening/weight going down portion of the lift is where most microtears are made in your muscle fibers. Yet this is the most neglected portion of the lift; many people just lift the weight up then assume they’ve competed the rep and drop the weight as it goes down. THIS LOSES GAINS! •
Fight against gravity and try to go down as slow as possible! You’ll definitely be lifting a lot lighter since time under tension is increased.

Tried today some slow pull-ups inspired by @jessiegraffpwr . Not too easy even I used underhand grip. Last rep with @15kg extra weight last approx. 50 seconds. #pullups #slowpullups #slowreps #slowstrenght #strenght #strenghttraining #newstimulus #challengeyourbody #morninggym #auditmovement #lazysundays

Last workout before viper challenge, hopefully everything goes smoothly for everyone who is participating in this event 💪🏼 My “slow” pull up, 35 seconds. #uachallenge @jessiegraffpwr .

Seems like everyone posting their back today. Soz for bad light. Actually na, I’m not, not fussed about special lighting to make me look swoll. I’ve been trying real hard lately to slow down my reps.. it’s the greatest and worse thing. Happy Saturday 🥓👌🏼

Fit tip of the day: Don’t be afraid to go “Nice and SLOOOOW” 😏 Most people try to get the set over with so rush through it. Rather, you should focus on the burn and the squeeze! Don’t be afraid to take it slow. You’ll definitely feel it more and see the effects! Thank me later 💪🏾 .

For the first time I have tried a slow reps workout thanks to a @kinetickntrl video that I have seen.
I did 4 sets of max reps each.
My chest and triceps were literally burning 🔥
Have you ever tried it? Let me know in the comments 👇

Slowest pull up challenge thrown down by @jessiegraffpwr and @underarmour. Been working on this for the past couple of days and it is WAY harder than expected. PR is 1:15 done sloppy. The attempt in this video clocked a 1:03 but with much better form. By end of year I'm going for the big 2 minutes! LOL #uachallenge #wewill #slowreps #soill #hangboards
