Did you know you have 3 different muscles in your shoulders?? I didn’t until I did some research yesterday. Hit shoulders hard making sure to work muscles other than my LATs. So stoked you can actually start to see some definition in them. #stayingmotivated💪 #girlswholift#shoulderworkout#gymrat

KNOCK KNEES... anyone notice that their knees move inward when squatting or just standing? Mine aren’t too bad but they definitely aren’t where they need to be🤷🏼♀️
Fixing this requires strengthening that hip complex and your glutes! While stretching out your TFL. 🤸🏼♂️
So, here are some workouts I’ve been doing the past couple weeks to help straighten out my knees and some self myofascial release!
A big thanks to one of our trainers, Skot, for showing me that first workout😎
I'm putting this one out there because someone needs to say it. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR HEALTH. Just because a supplement company makes a million products, does not mean you need to take or use every single product. I see people stacking a million things together for a pre-workout. Then a million other things together for intra workout. Then a million more things together for post workout. Supplements are made to help you reach your goals in RESPONSIBLE WAY. Don't just take stuff to take stuff. And do not use stimulants on top of stimulant without knowing the risks involved. Read the labels. Research all the ingredients and understand all warnings on these labels. Most of us avoid going to the doctor, which makes this even worse. The least you guys can do is understand what you're putting into your body so you don't potentially harm yourself and then blame the company. YOU are responsible for what YOU put into your body. Take the time out to take care of yourself. This is your life. Be careful with it. Later guys. #publicserviceannouncement#safety#responsibility#supplements#stimulants#preworkout#fatburner#bodybuilding#powerlifting#fitfam#fitness#gymrats#gymrat#SummumBonum
💪🏼HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR DIPS!💪🏼 One of my favourite exercises, the dip, can ultimately lead to damaging your front delt and leaving your chest feeling unworked. We’re wanting the chest to be dominant throughout.
Firstly, focus on the positioning on your body. Tense up the lower part of your body. This will support your base, so you’re not swaying around. Most importantly, don’t let the shoulders sink when doing dips, like I am in the 2nd video - push them down and out of the way. Often when fatigued, it might feel like we are going down into the rep, but are only shrugging our shoulders, making our torso travel in the opposite direction, towards the floor.
To get a more defined lower pec, get the shoulder blades back and pause at the bottom of the rep for 1 second. You’re wanting as much tension in the chest’s most stretched position as possible. Start initiating as much range of motion from the top of your armpit and your lower pec. Moving your chest forward and shoulder blades back will increase that overall range.
As always, if you’d like more advice/help to improve dips altogether, and to change your body outlook for the better, then feel free to get in touch.

MAINTENANCE: HOW MANY CALORIES DO YOU NEED PER DAY?
A lot of people wonder how much they have to eat to gain or to lose weight. First of all, it’s good to know that it’s different for every single person. It’s a trial and error proces you have to experience. Second of all, if you want to gain or lose weight: the first thing you actually need to know is your maintenance. *
Big chance you’ve ever heard about this term in the fitness industry. But did someone ever explain to you properly what it actually is? Let me give it a try! 🤙🏼
Your maintenance is the daily amount of calories you need to MAINTAIN your body weight. It’s different for every single person and it depends on a lot of factors: gender, length, body weight, age, level of physical activity, genetic factors, etc.
Remember what I will keep telling you, even tho you don’t want to: it’s always nature vs. nurture! 🧬 *
Now you’re wondering: but how do I calculate that? 🧮 Sadly, it’s not that easy. To calculate your maintenance you also need to know your BMR: Basal Metabolic Rate. Your BMR indicates the amount of calories your body needs in rest: to maintain our breathing, blood circulation, brain activity, etc. 🧠
Can I calculate that on Google? 🔍 Of course you can, but if you type into Google: ‘pain in my ears’, it will tell you you’re pregnant: ...not so reliable. 🤰🏼
I will recommend you the ‘trial and error’ technique: find out by trying again and again, and one day you will know. And if you know your maintenance, you can add the ‘trial and error’ technique to your diet. 🥑
You’re welcome! 👩🏼🏫
