#Repost @syattfitness with @get_repost ・・・ 💥FEMALE vs MALE EXERCISES💥 - 🦄Hehe hi☺️ Just landed in Vegas for a quick biz trip. Coffee, black, and about to get a lift in. Which brings us to an important topic. - ☕️There is NO SUCH THING as a "female" or "male" exercise. It does not exist. There isn't a single exercise men can do that women shouldn't. And there isn't a single exercise women should do that men shouldn't. - 🦄Wanna pick some heavy weights up? Deadlift it! Woman or man, doesn't matter. I have male clients who deadlift well into the 700's and female clients who deadlift well into the 300's. - ☕️Wanna crank out chin-ups? Do it! Start with a variation that you can do with perfect form and progress your way to as advanced as you can go. I have female and male clients banging out weighted chin-ups like it's their job. - 🦄Moral of the story? Anyone who tells you not to do X exercise or Y workout because you're the "wrong" gender is a Malfoy. Nod, smile, then keep doing what works for YOU. Because Malfoy is a slimeball, anyway, and I really wish Ron’s “eat slugs” spell didn’t backfire. - #strength #strengthtraining #powerlifting #powerliftingwomen #powerlift #chickswholift #ladieswholift #girlswholift #strongwomen #strongladies #girlsgonestrong #bodybuilding #bodybuildingcom #bodybuilder #weightlifting #weightlift #strengthcoach #personaltrainer #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness #revivefitness ™️
@i.am.deadlift ・・・ 💥Over 6 weeks of no squatting … NO STRENGTH LOST!!💥 . Finally have back squats programmed for the first time since I competed at the beginning of December last year. . I’m very happy that with that time off, I feel stronger and HEALTHIER than ever. . I could have easily added a few pounds more, but just kept it light to grease the groove. . This is a great reminder that taking time off from training a specific movement will NOT negatively impact your performance especially if you’ve been training consistently over a long period of time. . For me - specifically - taking 6 weeks completely off when I’ve been training consistently over the past 13 years won’t sap my strength. .

💥HOW TO GET STRONG (NOT BIG)💥 by @syattfitness - 🦄Before we swan dive into the magical world of angry Instagram comments, I want to make it abundantly clear I am neither saying, nor insinuating, it is bad to get big(er). - ☕️Man or woman, athlete or general fitness enthusiast, your goal is YOUR goal and if you want to gain size, I fully support you and will do everything in my power to help you succeed. In fact, I have many posts outlining how to increase muscle size down my feed. - 🦄By the same coin, I hope you understand and respect there are many people (both men and women) who are not interested in getting bigger. And that's ok, too. Their goal is their goal. And this post is specifically to help people who want to get stronger without getting bigger. Cool? Cool. - ☕️Now, when you want to get stronger (not bigger) there are 4 major principles you need to understand. - 1️⃣Lift Heavier Weight for Fewer Reps. Because the only way to get stronger is by progressively lifting more weight over time. And lifting heavy doesn't make you big. Truth is, I'd rather you lift heavy for 3 sets of 5-8 than moderate weight for 4 sets of 8-12. Because the latter option is much more likely to add size. - 2️⃣ Keep Your Calories in Check. Because the ONLY way your muscles can grow is if you consistently eat in calorie surplus. - 3️⃣ Train Speed & Power. Because improving your rate of force development allows your brain and muscles to become more "efficient" and powerful which helps you lift more weight without adding extra size. - 🦄Drink Copious Amounts of Coffee (@unicornmagiccoffee ). Because the only people who don't like coffee are muggles and Rita Skeeter. Dolores Umbridge and Bellatrix Lestrange, too. And I'm pretty sure you don't want to be any of them. - 🙏❤🦄 - #weightlifting #weightlifter #weightlift #weightliftinggirls #olympiclifting #olylifting #gymnastics #gymnast #gymnastic #powerlifting #powerlift #girlswholift #ladieswholift #strongwomen #stronggirls #stronggirl #bodyweighttraining #bodyweight #chinup #pullups #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness

Please please please please save this. Screen shot it. Make it your background. Print it and paste it on your bathroom mirror. Whatever you do, keep this at the forefront of your mind. - Because the not-so-marketable truth about fat loss is it’s not easy. It’s not quick. It’s not fun or glamorous or noble. - Fat loss sucks. Straight up, it sucks. There are ways to make it less suck-y and more sustainable. You don’t need to eliminate everything in your life and you’re absolutely able to lose fat without starving yourself. And you can 100% lose fat while having fun and living life. - But the mental side of fat loss is what most people overlook. It never goes as quickly as you want. You regularly feel like you’re messing up. You often doubt yourself and your ability to stay on track. You sometimes feel like you’re missing out on social events and struggle to find the balance between strict enough to achieve your goals and flexible enough to enjoy life. - The good news is all these struggles are normal. We all go through them. And with enough time and effort and dedication and patience you can and will come out on the other side, fully understanding how to stay lean year-round without ever having these feelings again. - But there’s a difference. A difference between those who succeed and those who don’t. And the difference lies solely in your ability to fail...and get up and try again. - Because you will go off track. You will make mistakes. You will have days and weeks and months that don’t go your way. And that’s ok. You will come out on top. You will win. You will succeed. I promise. Just as long as you’re willing to keep getting back up and trying again and again and again. Because the only way to guarantee failure is to quit. - So don’t quit. Grit your teeth. Stand back up. And keep on fighting. You got this. - Beep boop. - Repost from @syattfitness - #mealprep #mealplan #mealplanning #mealprepsunday #diet #dietplan #dietfood #dieting #fatloss #fatlossfood #protein #proteinshake #healthyfood #healthybreakfast #healthyeating #cleaneating #strongwomen #ladieswholift #fitness #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness
#Repost @syattfitness (@get_repost ) ・・・ 💥CARDIO OR WEIGHTS?💥 - 🐙The fitness industry runs on a pendulum of extremes. Everything is either good or bad. Right or wrong. Healthy or unhealthy. Fattening or fat burning. Issue is, things aren't that black and white. And creating these false dichotomies is what digs us further into fitness "ruts" that are harder and harder to climb out of. - 🍕Cardio is the prime example. For a long time, cardio was *it.* THE thing. Everyone ran or biked or swam or roller skated (lol those were the days) or whatever. Weight lifting was "dangerous," not "functional," and only for "meat heads." - 🍗Recently, though, this all changed. Nowadays weight lifting is the end-all-be-all of fitness, whereas cardio is hated on and made fun of. Hell, I see coaches every day bragging about how they don't do any cardio whatsoever - only heavy lifting - and stay shredded year round. - ✈️And that's great. It really is. But there's more to fitness than staying shredded. And just because you don't need to do something to get shredded, doesn't mean it won't help. Nor does it mean there aren't a fistful of other benefits. Truth is, both cardio and weights have a ton of benefits, each of which complement the other. - 🏓Between you and me, I don't want to be a one trick pony. Sure, deadlifting 4x my body weight is great. But I also like running a 6min mile. And not getting winded every time I go up a flight of stairs. And, as weird as it sounds, I like finishing a workout out of breath and sweaty and feeling like I just got worked. - 🦄For me, strategically doing both weights and cardio is the best way to get the best of both worlds. So you can be strong as all hell, and the fittest one in the room. You don't have to choose - you can do both. - #cardio #cardioworkout #cardiofix #cardiotime #cardioqueen #cardiobunny #weights #weightlifting #weighttraining #strength #strenghtraining #strengthcoach #personaltrainer #personaltraining #lifting #bodybuilding #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness

Someday @syattfitness ...🤪❤️ . So who wants to teach me how to Twitter? (and is that what they call it??) . Twitter: iamdeadlift . #firstpost #sanjosebarbell #twitter #firsttweet #first #syattfitness #monday #newfriends #gains #toocoolforschool
😉👍🏻 @Regrann from @syattfitness - 💥FAT LOSS WITHOUT COUNTING CALORIES💥 - 🦄Counting calories is great. And it's something I think everyone should try, at least, for 30 days to get a better idea of how much they're actually eating, what appropriate portion sizes look like, and how much they need to eat to lose, maintain, & gain weight. - ☕️That said, you don't *need* to count calories. And, truth be told, I've always viewed "nutrition mastery" as being able to eat intuitively without tracking every single calorie. That's why I don't count my calories anymore. I did meticulously for several years when I first started learning. But now I can look at any plate of food and guess how much it has within 50-100 cals. - 🦄Now, what I have in this graphic is one of the methods I use for people who want to lose fat WITHOUT counting cals. Sometimes they just hate tracking and prefer this instead. Other times they use this when traveling or going on vaca and need some guidelines to stick to so they stay on track. - ☕️It's just a starting point - not a definitive law for every person - but from here you can track your progress and adjust as needed. Losing weight too fast? Add another meal and/or snack. Not losing weight at all? Take a snack out or reevaluate what your meals look like. Either way, this 3 meals/2 snacks strategy is one of my personal favorites and it works REALLY well. - 🦄I hope this helps. Ideally you'll use it as a fat loss "cheat sheet" to give a new method a shot and see how well it works for you. Because there's no "right" or "wrong" way to go about all of this. The key is to find what works best for YOU and run with it. Whether that's this method or counting calories or Paleo or plant-based or Atkins or whatever...doesn't matter. Try different things, experiment, see what helps you succeed and feel your best, and hit the ground running. - #caloriecounting #calorie #calories #flexibledieting #flexibleeating #iifym #ifitfitsyourmacros #cleaneating #organic #grassfed #fatloss #weightloss #nutrition #nutritionist #diet #dietitian #dietplan #mealprep #mealplan #mealplanning #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness

Knowledge drop! •• The limit does not exist. •• Guys - lift heavy and often. Girls - lift heavy and often. Everyone is capable of extraordinary strength.

REPOST! Amazing message... check out his IG and YouTube channel! . Repost @syattfitness with @get_repost ・・・ 🦄Full Video Link in Bio🦄 - I recently had a phone call with a sweet young woman, Rebecca. I asked what her goal was and she told me, for as long as she could remember, she wanted to lose 10lbs. She said she’d been able to lose them before but they inevitably crept back on and she just wanted to finally lose them once and for all. - She also told me that goal consumed her life. She did hours on hours on hours of cardio. Weighed and measured every piece of food. Thought about it day and night. Her thoughts were constantly on “those last 10 pounds.” - So I asked her, “Rebecca...what would happen if you lost those 10 pounds? How would your life be any better? Any happier? What would change in your life that would make losing those 10lbs worth all of your time and effort and energy?” - She paused. Thought. And said, “nothing. Nothing would change.” - Part of her sounded surprised. Also relieved. And we went on to discuss how and what she could do moving forward to stop being so focused on a goal that, in the end, probably wouldn’t make her life any better. - Full video link in bio.

📖 HOW TO MASTER PULL-UPS 📖 - 👆 Pull-ups are hard. You're essentially pulling your entire bodyweight up to a bar and unless you weigh 130lbs like me, it's typically harder than you expect. - 👆 With that being said, a good way to master pull-ups is to strengthen the different parts of the movement and you don't have to perform any bodyweight pull-ups initially. - 👆 The first method is performing the lat pull-down. This is essentially a pull-up but you can lift as little or as much as you want. Building up your strength on this movement will directly correlate to pull-ups themselves. - 👆 Secondly is building up more arm strength. The last part of any sort of pull-up involves some biceps and forearms and if you fail around this point, adding a couple sets of curls at the end of each workout can help with pull-up potential. - 👆 Lastly is something I call negatives where you essentially perform the eccentric part of the movement or the "letting down" portion. This is because you're body can resist more weight than it can contract concentrically. Basically, you can jump up to the bar or step on something and then slowly let your self back down. This will build up strength and being sore the next day is very common. - 👆 With these tips, you'll be doing pull-ups in no time at all! - 👆 Tag a friend who might find this useful! 👇

‼️WAYS TO HELP WITH STRESS‼️ -- So it's a we'll known fact that stress can impact your fat loss goals especially around this time of the year 🎄 when you have a million and one things to get done. In fact it could be the single reason why you have come to a stand still -- Stress isn't a thing that happens to us. Stress is our response to the challenges we face day to day. So if we change our response, we limit our stress 🙌 -- So here are just a few ways to help you balance your stress load -- 1️⃣ Get involved with mediation😇 even just 10 minutes a day over time can lower stress hormones, blood pressure and improve sleep! I would massively recommend an app called Headspace 👌🏻 -- 2️⃣ Practice self compassion. Give yourself the rest and attention you need. Remember, you need time to unplug as well. Know your limits and honour them -- 3️⃣ Do more of what you enjoy.. simple -- 4️⃣ Be outdoors more. Nature has an epic way of calming you down. Even if it's once a day taking the dog out for a walk. Make time for it! -- 5️⃣ Doing some form of yoga or slow stretching again is great for slowing your day down. Great for morning routines or just before bed -- 6️⃣ Spend time with family and friends. And when I say spend time I mean switch off Facebook and Instagram and be fully in the moment. -- Try and practice at least 2 of these every single day. So you can reach your goal without crashing and burning. ❤️

#Repost @syattfitness with @get_repost ・・・ 💥SUSHI ON A DIET💥 - 🦄Strap yourself in and squeeze onto your portkey because I'm anticipating a poop storm of incoherent gobbledygook from a fistful of dementors in the comments. Ready? Goggles on? We're diving in. - ☕️Sushi is my favorite food in the world. And I hate the question but if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life it would 100% be sushi. (Pizza, too. And coffee. Also cheesecake.) But sushi is number one! - 🦄Anyway. Even though sushi is wicked healthy and good for you and blah blah blah, it's verrrrry easy to toss down a muggle-ton of calories without realizing. And that's the issue most people struggling to lose the last bit of stubborn fat deal with - eating very "healthy" but not losing fat. - ☕️Keep in mind, I purposefully did NOT use a red x (❌) or green check (✅) to symbolize the "right" choices. Instead I said, "less of this" and "more of this." Because I'm NOT saying you can't eat these things. In fact, I had a boat full of sushi last night. - 🦄I AM saying you should be aware of what makes up the majority of your meal. Because things like dumplings, maki, and tempura are verrry high cal/low protein. Whereas edamame, sashimi, and miso soup are verrrry low calorie/high protein. And if you eat sushi regularly (and/or in large amounts) sticking to mainly the right side of this image can help you stay on track and fill you up for far fewer calories. - ☕️That's it. That's all I'm saying. Nothing on this picture is inherently bad for you and I honestly encourage you to have all of it in moderation.

I think he was embarrassed but I told him it's totally normal and it happens to me all the time. It doesn't, unfortunately, but part of me wishes it would. - ☕️Anyway. I huffed and puffed and sneezed this short list of the best strength exercises together no more than a few moments ago. It’s not all-inclusive by any means (let’s see how many dementors bless us with their presence in the comments and say “you forgot this and that and also gfy”) but it’s 12 of my personal all-time favorite exercises for building full body strength. - 🦄Worth noting, for any muggle who asks “but what is unicorn magic!?!?” it’s coffee. The picture is a mug of coffee. And unicorn magic is coffee. It’s coffee. Coffee. And if you aren’t sure why I included it in this picture, don’t worry, muggles aren’t supposed to understand everything. Just know it’s coffee. Coffee.

💥DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU💥 -- Okay so I guess what I'm trying to get across to you guys with this post is that there is no one size fits all approach with fat loss. -- You need to find what works for you and what your body responds to. Some people are better off with low carbs, others can handle a high carbs diet. Some people can train 5 days a week, others can't. -- It's probably not what you wanted to hear I know as I'm not really giving you a definitive answer... however iv always said I will tell the truth when it comes to helping people. And that is you must find the best way for you. -- Keep it simple and don't be afraid to slip up. It just means your getting closer to it working❤️

📖 WHY YOU DON'T HAVE TO TRACK MACROS FOREVER 📖 - 📢 Tracking macros works. Plain and simple. You know how much you're eating and how much food equates to in calories. When you're first starting out, it can be a little bit intimidating so I think this turns people off. - 📢 The truth is if your goal is general fitness, you don't have to track forever. You can track for a week or two or month and learn more about food than you ever wanted. You'll figure out and be able to eyeball foods and their nutritional content after using a tracking app. - 📢 However, when it comes down to complicated stuff like restaurant food, just keep in mind that they add additional fat usually to make the food taste better. With this knowledge you can plan ahead if you know you'll be going out for a meal! - 📢 If you have a friend who's intimidated, please share this video with them. I hope it helps! 👍

So I find this topic one of the most talked about when it comes to training 💥 CARDIO VS WEIGHT TRAINING 🤔 💥 And what is interesting to me is why people are doing one or the other. 💥 Some people say "I don't want to get too bulky and big from lifting weights" 💥 Or on the other side they say "I don't want to lose all of my muscle from cardio, plus it's boring" 💥 The reality is, both can compliment the other 💥 Now when people do a 45 min cardio session, normally the reason if because they think they will burn more fat burning hat 45 mins as oppose to weight training 💥 Now this makes sense short term but long term they are making a huge mistake 💥 If you weight or strength train, and you take time to build lean muscle mass therefor increasing your metabolism which means burning calories whilst you... well sleep! 😴 💥 On the other hand the people who are only weight lifting, this is also short sighted 💥 Cardio isn't going to make you lose your gains. In fact it will increase your aerobic capacity which will help your over all recovery time 💥 Meaning shorter rest times between sets lifting weights, meaning improving your strength and muscle mass 💥 Cardio is not better than weightlifting and weightlifting isn't better than cardio. Both compliment each other and both put you in a calorie deficit🙌 💥 If you have any more questions about this please leave a comment below ❤️
💥HOW TO GET STRONG (NOT BIG)💥 - 🦄Before we swan dive into the magical world of angry Instagram comments, I want to make it abundantly clear I am neither saying, nor insinuating, it is bad to get big(er). - ☕️Man or woman, athlete or general fitness enthusiast, your goal is YOUR goal and if you want to gain size, I fully support you and will do everything in my power to help you succeed. In fact, I have many posts outlining how to increase muscle size down my feed. - 🦄By the same coin, I hope you understand and respect there are many people (both men and women) who are not interested in getting bigger. And that's ok, too. Their goal is their goal. And this post is specifically to help people who want to get stronger without getting bigger. Cool? Cool. - ☕️Now, when you want to get stronger (not bigger) there are 4 major principles you need to understand. - 1️⃣Lift Heavier Weight for Fewer Reps. Because the only way to get stronger is by progressively lifting more weight over time. And lifting heavy doesn't make you big. Truth is, I'd rather you lift heavy for 3 sets of 5-8 than moderate weight for 4 sets of 8-12. Because the latter option is much more likely to add size. - 2️⃣ Keep Your Calories in Check. Because the ONLY way your muscles can grow is if you consistently eat in calorie surplus. - 3️⃣ Train Speed & Power. Because improving your rate of force development allows your brain and muscles to become more "efficient" and powerful which helps you lift more weight without adding extra size. - 🦄Drink Copious Amounts of Coffee (@unicornmagiccoffee ). Because the only people who don't like coffee are muggles and Rita Skeeter. Dolores Umbridge and Bellatrix Lestrange, too. And I'm pretty sure you don't want to be any of them.

I learned to appreciate my quality of life by losing what I had. I’d look at what other people were doing and compare their more seemingly adventurous life against mine and I felt stuck when my adventures normally mean being able to enjoy going to a restaurant on the weekends or at most a weekend trip to Miami. ⠀ -⠀ Then the company I worked for closed down and I lost my job. It was then that I realized all the little things in life I was able to enjoy but let my comparison-obsessed eyes blind me. ⠀ -⠀ I never realized how special it was to go on a grocery trip and be able to just pick a little something extra for a special meal. I found myself picking the bare minimum and not able to go places because I couldn’t afford filling my car’s gas tank often. ⠀ -⠀ This time around I’m thankful and my eyes are open. I may not be traveling to Thailand, Bali, Greece, Italy, Spain, Japan or any other exciting places but that doesn’t mean my life sucks. Losing what I had overnight opened my eyes to life’s simpler pleasures that I was failing to see. ⠀ -⠀ Comparison happens anywhere, not just on social media. Take some time to open your eyes and think about the little things that make you happy and cherish them! For me it’s having a burger at a local restaurant I love, my husband massaging my back and giving me goosebumps with his kisses, having cookies in bed while binge watching Netflix shows and occasional trips to Miami and the beach. What about you? What are little things you are thankful for?
💥HOW TO BUILD A BOOTY💥 - 🦄It might not look like much but careful what you say because Seamus Finnigan said this was only for pixies but after trying it he walked like he had a stinky ‘ol dooky in his cloak for a week. - 🦄Muggles call it a “Single-Leg RDL to Reverse Lunge Combo” but to us witches and wizards it’s known as basilisk venom. The key is try to stay as fluid as possible with each movement - so before you do the combo, master each exercise separately. Then over time put them together. - 🦄You’d best doing this drill early in your workout (2nd or 3rd exercise latest) because it takes the piss outa you and if you try doing it fatigued you’ll be cursing Helena Huffle Puff all the way home. - 🦄2-4 sets of 5-8 reps per leg is plenty. And 2x/week is all you need, at most. Also, worth mentioning definitely start light but not too light. Having a little bit of extra weight works as a counterbalance which actually makes balancing on one foot a little easier. - 🦄Good luck🙏 - #legday #legworkout #legs #legsfordays #glute #glutes #gluteworkout #butt #buttworkout #buttworkouts #lunges #rdl #hamstrings #doms #sore #strengthtraining #strongwomen #strongladies #womenwholift #womenwhopowerlift #powerlifting #powerliftingwomen #ladieswholift #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness

Awesome post 😃 This applies to the yoga world as well. I had a football player in Dancer’s Pose last week and he killed it. 💪🙏. Repost from @syattfitness using @RepostRegramApp - 💥FEMALE vs MALE EXERCISES💥 - 🦄Hehe hi☺️ Just landed in Vegas for a quick biz trip. Coffee, black, and about to get a lift in. Which brings us to an important topic. - ☕️There is NO SUCH THING as a "female" or "male" exercise. It does not exist. There isn't a single exercise men can do that women shouldn't. And there isn't a single exercise women should do that men shouldn't. - 🦄Wanna pick some heavy weights up? Deadlift it! Woman or man, doesn't matter. I have male clients who deadlift well into the 700's and female clients who deadlift well into the 300's. - ☕️Wanna crank out chin-ups? Do it! Start with a variation that you can do with perfect form and progress your way to as advanced as you can go. I have female and male clients banging out weighted chin-ups like it's their job. - 🦄Moral of the story? Anyone who tells you not to do X exercise or Y workout because you're the "wrong" gender is a Malfoy. Nod, smile, then keep doing what works for YOU. Because Malfoy is a slimeball, anyway, and I really wish Ron’s “eat slugs” spell didn’t backfire. - #strength #strengthtraining #powerlifting #powerliftingwomen #powerlift #chickswholift #ladieswholift #girlswholift #strongwomen #strongladies #girlsgonestrong #bodybuilding #bodybuildingcom #bodybuilder #weightlifting #weightlift #strengthcoach #personaltrainer #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness
Beep boop! Hehe hi ☺️ - So my flight got re-routed in the air from Houston to San Antonio. And now we’re sitting on the runway with 15 other planes and the moral of this story, my sweet little Unicorn, is that I’m so hungry I could eat a real live fiddle faddle, fistful of tiddly winks, and maybe even two whole truffle nuggets. - I know, I know! It’s a grim situation here on United Airlines flight 3957 and I’m not proud of it. But I hardly ate before my flight and, Merlin‘s beard, I could use a snack. - Anyway. Let’s beep boop until we can’t beep another boop and play a game, shan’t we? - Tell me in the comments how you first got into fitness. What happened? What’s your “story?” - I’ll go through and pick 2 people to get a FREE month in my Inner Circle (my members only area where each month members get strength workouts, nutrition guidelines, access to our private group, yada yada yada). - Oh! If you’re already in the Inner Circle I want to hear your story, too, because I’m picking 2 Inner Circle members to get a free phone call with me 🦄. - So. That’s it. Let the beep booping begin. - GO! - 📸 @davidbracetty - #beepboop #fitness #fitnesscoach #fitnessaddict #personaltrainer #personaltraining #fitspo #fitsporation #sfinnercircle #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness

In fact, I have many posts outlining how to increase muscle size down my feed. - 🦄By the same coin, I hope you understand and respect there are many people (both men and women) who are not interested in getting bigger. And that's ok, too. Their goal is their goal. And this post is specifically to help people who want to get stronger without getting bigger. Cool? Cool. - ☕️Now, when you want to get stronger (not bigger) there are 4 major principles you need to understand. - 1️⃣Lift Heavier Weight for Fewer Reps. Because the only way to get stronger is by progressively lifting more weight over time. And lifting heavy doesn't make you big. Truth is, I'd rather you lift heavy for 3 sets of 5-8 than moderate weight for 4 sets of 8-12. Because the latter option is much more likely to add size. - 2️⃣ Keep Your Calories in Check. Because the ONLY way your muscles can grow is if you consistently eat in calorie surplus. - 3️⃣ Train Speed & Power. Because improving your rate of force development allows your brain and muscles to become more "efficient" and powerful which helps you lift more weight without adding extra size. - 🦄Drink Copious Amounts of Coffee (@unicornmagiccoffee ). Because the only people who don't like coffee are muggles and Rita Skeeter. Dolores Umbridge and Bellatrix Lestrange, too. And I'm pretty sure you don't want to be any of them. - 🙏❤🦄 - #weightlifting #weightlifter #weightlift #weightliftinggirls #olympiclifting #olylifting #gymnastics #gymnast #gymnastic #powerlifting #powerlift #girlswholift #ladieswholift #strongwomen #stronggirls #stronggirl #bodyweighttraining #bodyweight #chinup #pullups #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness - #regrann

😃 Just because I love you guys but I know some you don’t love counting calories here’s all kinds of awesomeness from a very sparkly human @syattfitness - 😍 Here’s what he The Sparkle Master had to say. ・・・ 💥FAT LOSS WITHOUT COUNTING CALORIES💥 - 🦄Counting calories is great. And it's something I think everyone should try, at least, for 30 days to get a better idea of how much they're actually eating, what appropriate portion sizes look like, and how much they need to eat to lose, maintain, & gain weight. - ☕️That said, you don't *need* to count calories. And, truth be told, I've always viewed "nutrition mastery" as being able to eat intuitively without tracking every single calorie. That's why I don't count my calories anymore. I did meticulously for several years when I first started learning. But now I can look at any plate of food and guess how much it has within 50-100 cals. - 🦄Now, what I have in this graphic is one of the methods I use for people who want to lose fat WITHOUT counting cals. Sometimes they just hate tracking and prefer this instead. Other times they use this when traveling or going on vaca and need some guidelines to stick to so they stay on track. - ☕️It's just a starting point - not a definitive law for every person - but from here you can track your progress and adjust as needed. Losing weight too fast? Add another meal and/or snack. Not losing weight at all? Take a snack out or reevaluate what your meals look like. Either way, this 3 meals/2 snacks strategy is one of my personal favorites and it works REALLY well. - 🦄I hope this helps. Ideally you'll use it as a fat loss "cheat sheet" to give a new method a shot and see how well it works for you. Because there's no "right" or "wrong" way to go about all of this. The key is to find what works best for YOU and run with it. Whether that's this method or counting calories or Paleo or plant-based or Atkins or whatever...doesn't matter. Try different things, experiment, see what helps you succeed and feel your best, and hit the ground running. -
