Feeling winded AF as I enter my cutting regimen. Going from strength training for muscle growth to strength and endurance training for fat-loss has me struggling already (but in a good way 🤪). This change is just what I needed - it’s giving me motivation and some new goals to conquer.👊🏼
Happy Hump Day! 🍑
Just had my first check in with my coach since my comp 3 weeks ago and pretty happy with all my stats!! Only gained roughly 2kgs since comp and my skin folds are still low 😊
Can’t wait to start the next phase of my training plan 👙👊🏽
305# deadlift for a single (I failed the second one lol). This was after not deadlifting for ten days, when I pulled 300# for five. Probably could've gotten more than one today if I hadn't missed that workout. But I'm still on it, still doing it.
You might wonder why I've only added 5 pounds to my deadlift in the last few months. Well, stops and starts, the first caused by feeling unmotivated when I hit 300 after having run linear progression for 3 months and being bored shitless with my workout, as effective as it was. Even reworking it didn't fix the problem; I just didn't want a 3x per week Big-4-focused routine anymore. Monday-Wednesday-Friday? More like "NoFunday, WhenWillitEndsday, and I'mFriedDay." and then after that, I got sick a few times. That didn't help.
Pauses and breaks happen in fitness. They are virtually inevitable for all but the very very few. And even if they do, as long as you've put enough work in to begin with, you won't be starting from zero when you come back. That's the worst feeling: of starting over for the umpteenth time. I absolutely crushed that 3x/week program and pulled a 300# dead 1x5 and 225# squat, 140# bench (which is big for me; cut me some slack, I'm 6'5"!), and 95# OHP, all for 3x5, in three months. When you've gotten a little far, a little time off is okay.
Now, I'm running my own twice-weekly full-body concurrent routine with an emphasis on conventional deadlift (i.e. the deadlift is still linear). Concurrent is a challenging approach and concept. I'll get more into it another time; suffice it to say it requires patience and trial-and-error. But once you've put some time into yourself, a little bit more can seem worth it if it means a better outcome. It's just part of trusting the process. We'll see how it goes. -

Hoje foi dia de compras, porque iniciei a semana montando marmitas, primeiro pq deixa o dia mais produtivo (fazer comida todo dia é massante), segundo pq come certinho na quantidade certa. Enfim, nas compras foi colocado no carinho CARNES, das mais variadas, frango, carne de sol, contra filé e carne moída, colocado VERDURAS, LEGUMES e TEMPEROS. Onde será montado as marmitas a cada 3 dias, então nas marmitas montadas hoje teve frango e a batata doce, nas próximas postagens terá passo a passo de como foi feito ! 😉 (Imagem nos story)
If you want a stronger core (which includes any muscle responsible for stability within trunk stability) include exercises in your regimen that demand high recruitment rates in stabilizing functions while maximizing strength in distal extremities.
This bench single arm + single leg balanced row works not just the posterior muscles of the back, but engages the entire anterior and posterior chain from well into the neck extensors and flexors down to the stabilizers of the ankle.
In this postural position, the abdominals, obliques, chest and deltoids and even your quadriceps remain active as you attempt to stay level.
Use exercises like these regardless of your goal.
This may help with strength as an ending to a strength day.
This may help with power as transfer increases in muscle recruitment increases.
This may help with athletic performance as stability during dynamic movement means better mobility.
This may also help with posture and physique as your postural muscles strengthen you will begin to see your general aesthetic look improve as you stand taller, you appear leaner and more confident.
Give us a follow for more exercises, tips, motivational posts, updates and even new 30 day body transformation challenges.

Be blessed, Team Bailey
