  • Getting back into my workout flow has been a struggle. ⁣
⁣
Yesterday I got through half my workout before straight giving up. Finished it today to find out I bailed on 6 minutes. 6 minutes was all I had left 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️⁣
⁣
Today it took me about 45 minutes to get through a 27 minute workout. ⁣
⁣
At the end of it, the super trainer asked.. “Do you feel accomplished?”⁣
⁣
Actually, nah. I kinda don’t. ⁣
⁣
I didn’t give it my all. I totally modified several moves. I kept pausing. ⁣
⁣
But I didn’t give up. And that’s a win. ⁣
⁣
I’m prepared to dive back in and give this program my all. I’m ready to put my attention back on my nutrition and start feeling accomplished again. ⁣
⁣
Nothing about this journey is easy. Everything about it is worth it, though. ⁣

  • This is from December of last year. Just came across it and realized I need to film an updated one.⠀
⠀
Here I’m not even bringing the bar down to my chest and my feet placement is kinda awkward.⠀
⠀
Now I bring it all the way down to my chest and usually hold my legs in the air now but not always. ⠀
⠀
I also went down on weight to work my way back up to heavy weight instead of continuing to just go heavy without building the muscle up to it.⠀
⠀
It’s funny looking back sometimes and realizing how things have changed and how far you’ve come.⠀
⠀
I used to be so skinny and then chubby that I never envisioned being able to bench press much at all.⠀
⠀
Now it’s one of my favorite exercises. I’ll make a comparison vid soon 🎥💪🏽😈

  • If you are stuck on your bench press, it might be because of your bar path 🤔⠀
-⠀
Most people think that in order to continue progressing, all you have to do is just keep lifting, and this is true, but improving your technique can have a huge impact.⠀
-⠀
Most people start benching with their bar path straight up and down directly above the chest (this is still ok and some people prefer this method), by driving up the bar back towards your shoulders above your upper back, you utilize more shoulders and leg drive, allowing you to move more weight.⠀
-⠀
This also has a lower chance of shoulder impingement since your elbows are not flared out.⠀

This won’t increase your bench immediately, but studies show that this technique allowed many powerlifters to break their plateau with work.⠀

  • This new outfit makes me appreciate the hard work I put into my transformation even more! I'm happy (and comfortable) to walk around like this in the gym. .

Now to put that in perspective; 4 years ago, when I started going to therapy, (wayyyyyy before even losing weight) I was afraid of wearing shorts... Which in hindsight right now.. I don't understand at all! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Not to even speak about crop tops and sports brahs. 🙈 Nope! I couldn't even make eye contact with people for longer than 2 seconds without turning into an awkward staring-at-the-ground mess.. even if I knew them already.😆 .

I just thought about this as I had a conversation with someone and realized i had been looking into this person's eyes for the whole convo!🎊🎉 It's just something I hardly ever look back on because it was an awful time. And you lose track of progress because it's quite a depressing quality to keep track of..🤣 But when I did so today, I felt a real sense of pride! I'm finally stepping out of the shy akward and painful bubble that has been created around me since I was young, and I couldn't be happier! .

Moral of the story; keep tracking any progress that is important to you! Even if it's a pretty shitty subject to track... You'll appreciate it in the long run! Do you keep track of your personal victories outside of the gym? And do you benefit from doing so? 🤔 Let me know! 👇🏻

  • Let's talk about coaching! Because I know a lot of you who have a coach, and others that don't. Me.. I personally didn't feel, and still don't necessarily feel like I need one. I'm not working towards a competition or shoot.. so nothing worth hiring a coach for. .

Coaching is great, because you have someone with you that is full of knowledge, tips and tricks. You won't get injuries as quickly, and most definately speeds up your progress, and your own knowledge about proper form and exercises .

The downside to coaching or personal training is that all the knowledge you do get, comes from somebody else. Not only that.. it can be very expensive!💰So it definately has its downsides as results aren't guaranteed, you still need to work for them, and you're the one that has to show up at the gym.. and do the work. 🏋🏻‍♀️ So if you're not successful or don't have a connection with your coach or trainer, it's a waste of time and money. .

That's the plus side of training/transforming on your own, all by yourself.. it might take a LOTTT longer, but you gained all the knowledge you wanted to over time, in a way you understand best, because you did it all by yourself! 👌🏻 You will be a lot more knowledgeable from learning it all yourself and by learning from your own mistakes and experiences. 🗝️
That comes with a lot more confidence in yourself, and a pride no one will be able to take away from you.. I always feel great when people ask me how I did it, and I get to say "it was all me"😜😎 It takes a special kind of patience and willpower.. I almost believe that when you take this approach and you're truly interested in the sport.. you'll absorb more knowledge and learn more in the process than you would with a coach or personal trainer.. .

So how did you start? 🤔 Did you jump into coaching, did you get a PT or did you start working out by yourself? And what do you think will benefit you the most?
