Week 5: Day 1, 2 and 3
I must say... The late Pop Smoke’s music gets me so amped up during my workouts. I’ve recently discovered him not too long ago through @tefrondon and been hooked ever since that he became my favourite artist of this generation. I’m sad about his passing because I was so looking forward to his what-could-have-been future work. Rest in peace to another young artist in the the hiphop industry.

After leg curls and leg extensions we got some strengh work 6 plates here
Pretty good, bench was easy enough, can't wait to go heavier. Deadlifts were easy, i don't like straps and if my thumbs could take it i would do everything hook grip but alas t'is my life. I like barbell rows, my favourite back movement.
Finally... I am finally getting control of my bloat problem and my core is finally starting to come back in. Along with a few diet changes, i have to give some credit to @vitastic_vitamins products including the PHgreens and the Gut Protect. Severe acid reflux is hell and i wouldn’t wish it on anyone. A day without reflux feels like heaven to me so thank you colleen for your continued support!! #nogames2020
All singles from the 12th week out of the 13 weeks of @jordytips peak.
Deadlift and Squat moved well considering just coming out of a week long chest infection.
Bench feeling far from its prime but in recent months he hasn't hit the same frequency he once did. That will be corrected after the peak.
All the hard work is done until the test day now.

1) 245lbx6 @ 6🤯.
2) Last set of NFL combine work (3x7)
New motto for this prep! “If you can’t beat the man, you must out eat the man”. And after 6000 Calories yesterday, you can say we’re coming full steam ahead. @_mattconner how is my monkey diet looking so far 😘
Some highlights from today's training. 460lbs High Bar squat. This is a 5lbs PR high bar so I'm pretty pleased considering I'm in a calorie deficit. Then hit an easy single at 335lbs on bench. Had a bunch of backdown sets on both movements as well.
❗️WHAT IMPACTS THE SCALE AND WHY YOU SHOULDN’T COMPLETELY RELY ON IT❗️.
Ah, the scale: we all use the scale as a tool to track our weight loss but it’s important to make sure that the scale is not the only thing we use to measure our progress. Why? Well, there are a lot of different factors that can change the number that pops up on the scale, and I will be addressing a few of those factors below:
❗️Alcohol Consumption: No Becky you did not just lose 5 pounds of body fat after a night of drinking, rather you are just dehydrated leading to less water weight (temporary) resulting in a lower number on the scale the next morning.
❗️High Sodium Consumption: “I ate super healthy yesterday but I seasoned all my food with soy sauce, is that why my weight went up a few pounds overnight?” Simply put, yes: consuming foods/sauces/seasonings high in sodium (like soy sauce) can result in a higher weigh-in the next day. This is not due to increased body fat though, but rather increased water retention which will go away.
❗️You didn’t poop yet.
The list goes on and on, but hopefully those few examples gave you a bit of insight as to how the scale can be an inaccurate measure of progress concluding why you shouldnt rely on it as a means of tracking progress. .
Instead of JUST relying on the scale, Id recommend also tape-measuring yourself, taking pictures of yourself, and being aware of gym accomplishments.
What fitness topic would you like me to cover next?! Let me know in the comments❗️❗️❤️.
Stay faithful keep reading the word daily. Great way to end my week heading into my camp relaxation weekend. Feeling explosive and strong from the rest I've taken can't wait to start my new program from @v1k1ng13 and @truevikingfitness tried one of @nicolai_throws lifts today seemed fun.

No energy, fasted, tired, etc etc .
I just wan a fuckin cheeseburger 😭 .
There comes a point where you have to decide if you’re going to finally make sacrifices needed to hit goals or keep making excuses 🤷🏼♂️
EVERYbody is capable of either choice .
DM for training rates today 💪🏽

Couple Birthday PRs today 🎉
465x1 & 225x25
Deadlift is a 10 lbs PR... pulled conventional for the first time in months and honestly I realized sumo is not for me 😂 my un-trained conventional is stronger than my sumo which I just programmed for, for the past two months 🙃 lessons have been learned.
And the squat was a birthday challenge. 25 reps for 25 years 👊🏻
Not having a kitchen available in my house for the past week has been killing me (under construction). I’ve eaten out way to much for my own good! What’s everyone’s favorite cheat meal? Mine is a cheese burger and sweet potato fries 🥵
Feeling chunkier but also the strongest I’ve ever been in my life sooooo good compromise think il stay like this for a while 😝
Amazing session with @lucyjuicyd ... absolutely loving having a training partner these days... I’ve always trained alone unless me and @hollydavage have been on an adventure 🤩 and it makes such a difference when people are pushing you / filming you hahaha
PBS All round Single Plate Rowed 55kg .... 6 reps on 90kg BB RDL (same as previous but form improved) and got the 20s up for a grand total of 2 😂😂 💪🏻
I'm doing German volume training that means 10 sets for 10 reps with constant weight and you have to lift 50-60% of 1 rep max.. my 1 rep max in leg press is nearly 450 kgs so i'm using very light weight nearly 250 kgs for 10 sets
It looks easy but its very challenging for me
Note- i don't do squat in my legs workout
Try this workout technique to build your upper chest
Start with heavy weight and do 8-10 reps with proper
form and control then drop the weight to half and do same exercise with 5 second pause at stretching point it will really kill your chest
Nearly 12 months ago, in this very conversation with all of you I asked you to remember where it all started. What was it that made you want to be better? I, like you started in meek circumstances; a room with 25 people 15 of them competitors. I then asked you to look around and see where we are at now...I challenged you all to demand more of ourselves and each other in order for us to grow. Not long now till it’s that time again and we can have another conversation #filipinostrong

#OneWeekOut . Next Thursday I’ll be in Winnipeg hitting the national platform 🤯.
This has been the hardest prep I have ever done. I am so mentally and physically tired, which is why I’ve been so quiet. I have been fighting the flu for over a month and I feel like it has stripped me of my energy, my strength, my appetite (5lbs down at 59kg. I could have tried for the 57kg weight class lol), and my motivation. I wanted to quit so badly. Some moments I still do. I’m working on changing my mindset and it’s so hard. But I won’t give up now. I’ve worked too damn hard to stop. It might not be the performance I had hoped for, but I’m giving it my all. I’m going to try. And I’m going to have fun doing it and cheering all my strong, strong friends on!
Thank you for reading my little rant update. No motivational or uplifting words to share. Just some struggles and realness. ❤️
