⚡TIP: KEEP YOUR CORE TIGHT & LEGS IN FRONT OF YOUR BODY DURING DIPS TO ACTIVATE YOUR ABS & KEEP GOOD FORM.
Started with 15kg #WeightedDips before moving on to progressively easier/lighter exercises (Ring Dips, Push Ups, Bench/Tricep Dips) to squeeze every last bit out of my Pecs & Tris. 👌

Finished my training @liftvt with some weighted dips. Had 5 sets of 15,15,12,12,12 but I wasn't exhausted. Did 2 extra sets and increased the weight. This is my last set of 12 reps with an added 75 pounds. I now weigh about 160. So that's a total of 235lbs. Progress! #ChallengeYourself#WeightedDips#SmallButMighty
Back to the weighted dips today, I love all the bodyweight excercises 😁 First vid 5kg and 2nd vid 10kgs. I normally do these first when I am fresh but did them at the end today so only got 6 out on my last set but when I am struggling on the last few reps I always have @flex_louis words ringing in my ears from when we trained arms. Today was an @bullxtprooflondon #antisocial day 💪 now it's time for an @proteincookiemadness cinna-bunbun cookie and off to Ludlow
Glimpse of training from today: 6 sets of pause triples at 100kg. 28 reps at 80kg. 3 sets of 5 mups into 70kg speed sledge. Then hit pb of 50kg dip for 10. 65kg bw. Pausing at 90 intentionally.

Weighted Dips- my new favorite upper body exercise! One of the best exercises for building relative strength. Here I worked up to a top set of 5 reps with BW plus 105 pounds. This workout also included weighted chin-ups and front squats. I always do full body workouts 2-3 times per week. As with all my exercises, I work up to a top heavy set. If you truly work that set hard, one work set is all you really need!
I really wnjoyed the route this push session went... Good load and good volume to work with... As my journey into lifying continues I start to learn so much more... Workout:
Bench press: 8, 6, 4, and an AMRAP w/ 200. Got 9 reps. I will get 10 next time.
Weighted dips: 8, 6, 4, and AMRAP w/ 90 lbs hanging off of me. 7 reps isn't too shabby... Incline DB press: 16, 12, 8, and AMRAP w/ 80's. Really happy that I was able to get these since this is the heaviest dumbbells I've used for incline in awhile... Single arm DB press: 4 sets to failure. When it comes to shoulder training I'm just trying to use multi joint movements to build the most muscle possible
Weighted sit ups: 4 sets to failure

One of my favorite superset to end a workout!!🔥.
After 1-1.5 h of training I like to spend 10 min doing supersets because
1)I like to suffer 😂.
2)I want to test my limits also when I’m tired and not just at the beginning of the workout.
3)It helps to burn more calories and fat so i can stay as “lean” as possible despite I’m gaining weight.
This superset consists of 9 ring push ups (excuse me if the form is not correct) and 5 tricep extensions( go ALL the way down). 10 sec rest and repeat it 4-5 times.
If it burns, that means you did your workout intense, if not, next time work harder😉😂.
Give it a try and let me know if you did it!. #weightedjourney
So Its been a couple of weeks since my last post and I have been training just simply experimenting.
I am moving more towards a Functional Body Weight X Weight programme for the next 12 weeks.
In My last 12 weeks I have gone from 16st down to 14st 3lb. Several inches in size around the relevant areas has been lost as a result 🤣😂 Monday13th Aug was the start of the new plan and Day 1 looked like this:
Explosive Puss Ups - 3 sets of as many as possible. I managed 3 sets of 10 and my chest felt like it was going to explode.
Spiderman Push Ups - 3 sets of 5 each side. These were far harder then I expected but really felt them working the core and chest.
Dips - 3 sets of 12 reps - Did Body weight to start then used a 10kg for 12 2nd set and finally managed 6 with the 10kg on 3rd set dropped it off and finished with 6 BW.
Plate Press - 3 sets of 20.
Started with 10kg which was to light. Went up to 15kg and then do to 5kg metal plates together which was hard as if I lost control I was basically loosing my teeth so really help accentuate the force through the chest ..... try it.
Seated Shoulder Press - 3 sets 12 each side. Started with 12.5kg then 15kg and finally 18kg which was really tough ... next week start on thd 18kg!! Bear Crawls 3 sets of 10meters forward 10 meters Backwards!!! These are f@$king tough and feel like they work every muscle going. In fact the muscle ache in my back this morning was awesome 🤣😂🐻🐻🐻 Did legs today but will try post tomoz morning.
Really enjoyed this change up and hoping it will assist in reseting my body and allowing me to progress further in 12 weeks time.
Advice always welcome :😊😊😊

It’s the driving force to being consistent with your habits and also the same force that responds to the internal conflict of needing to do something but don’t. The decision to do something or not is found in our prefrontal cortex (frontal lobe of the brain), where our willpower and self-control is stored. And because willpower depletes throughout the day, we must learn to increase it. •
Do you ever wonder why your decision-making gets worse as the day progresses like choosing to eat unhealthy at midnight? We’ve all done it 🖐🏽 because your willpower is a finite source.
Exercise your willpower much like how you exercise your body. Here’s how:
1. Get enough sleep 💤
2. Pray or meditate (this helps bring self-awareness) 🙏🏽
3. Exercise (regular exercise will boost your willpower- so if you need more willpower to exercise, then uh exercise lol) 🏋🏻♀️
4. Nutrition (give your brain some energy by eating more plant-based, less-processed foods)🌱
5. Postpone unimportant things for later to gain focus on what’s important now 👓 *checkout these videos of willpower and the man with a broken finger doing weighted dips 😍😍 #boostwillpower#focusedliving#exercisebreedsmoreexercise#armday#weighteddips#curls#bisandtrisremix
