#transformationtuesday Swipe Left! Started @universalpro_gym at the end of March 2018? @gymhulk80 my trainer reached out to me via Instagram about checking out his gym. Good timing!!! At that time I just walked away from another trainer and was done with running any type of marathons or training for one. I switched gears from constantly running to bodybuilding and decided I want to compete one day. Is it hard? Definitely! Challenged daily? Absolutely! Prep isn’t glamorous . Making progress and not looking back. When will i compete in a show ? Idk. Building muscle takes time. I’m just learning and going through the process. ————————-
All left side pics: 146 lbs, little muscle definition, a runners flap jack booty, knee pain/inflammation, and weak as hell. ——————-
Right side pics: 135-137 lbs, gaining muscle, leaner, round booty, no knee pain, stronger and moving up in weight lifting. ———————
Focus: dropping body fat and building muscle.
Time for some new professional progress pics. ————————-
NPC Bikini or Figure? I say Bikini but my trainer says figure... lol

Post day two feels 😝 Hey, not every workout is going to be your best, but I got in there and sweat anyway! Super pumped tomorrow is rest day tho 😅
I think I'm going to take a run tomorrow and get these sore muscles some blood pumping through them. What's your favorite thing to do as an active rest day??
Mobility is super important, and I don't do it enough so I'm glad this class exists. Completed everything but the couch stretch barefoot.
Once we got into the couch stretch we stayed there for 2 minutes per side with our arms rained above our head and squeezing our glutes for 3 sec. My glutes were really feeling that on the leg that was up.
The pigeon stretch and wall sit with shoulder press were the hardest for me. My IT band doesn't really get stretched or rolled out very often so it's always pretty tight, and I never notice how tight it is until I try to stretch it. The pigeon stretch is something I should be doing way more often.
I know my shoulder mobility needs work. We sat in the pike position against the wall. In that position I couldn't even get the back of my hands against the wall. I really felt it in my back right between my shoulder blades. I tried really hard to get my arms up while keeping them and my lower back against the wall. It was a real struggle.
Balancing on 1 foot and the side lunge were probably the easiest.
The people who consider you weak have not yet noticed the wolf hiding behind your eyes, nor the flames inside your soul. Let them think you are weak and do what wolves and fire do best. Surprise them when they least expect it. ♠️ •

Swipe 👈🏽👈🏽 to view her transformation. I’ve been coaching Amanda for 13 weeks now because she’s getting ready for a bikini show. She’s one of those athletes that you wish you can coach all the time. She doesn’t complain, she trains hard AF and she’s consistent day in and day out.
We started with a very slow approach because she had a lot on her plate like most normal people do. Work, our son, gym, lack of sleep and normal life duties. She started with 3 days a week of training but now she’s at 4 because we needed to add more volume (amount of work in her training). Her nutrition was good in the terms of amount of food we can work with. As we are getting closer we obviously have to get more aggressive. Lastly the only cardio she did when she first started was 10 min walks during her lunch, but now she has 3 total sessions. 2 HITT sessions because she prefers it more and one steady state cardio at 25 min.
Amanda is going to the extreme with her body, which requires more effort, however if she wanted to she can maintain her body now with little to no cardio, 3-4 workouts a week and having a 80/20 rule when it comes to her nutrition. So you don’t have to starve yourself or spend countless amount of time in the gym to have a awesome body. You just need to know what you are doing.
There you go, hope you enjoyed today’s post and I’ll talk to you guys soon. Also if your interested in my coaching services feel free to DM me.

🔥🏆😳 WE DID IT 😳🏆🔥
WHOEVER can guess my weight to the decimal wins a VERY special prize 😜
Hints: I am 6’2” and started this cut at 227lbs. Guess away! If no one gets it, closest person to it WINS and I will DM you 😏👋🏼
Day 2 of our newly released program.. And yay.. pleasantly surprised with no HIIT component.. until I tried to use my arms after and realized today is still no joke 😂
By the end I was so sweaty, that I was really wishing I had gotten my workout done earlier when it wasn't already so warm out. It appears that starting just before 11 is too late! LOL summer heat has started in full force. It almost makes me want to save it till the evening when it's slightly cooler out. Almost... not quite but almost. LOL
Comment with what you think! 💪

The weather is absolutely gorgeous! .
The last thing I feel like doing is cooking dinner. Or eating a heavy meal. I just want to soak up every last minute of sunshine while it’s here!! I ate generous lunch today so I replaced my dinner with a balanced, 280 calorie meal replacement providing me 36 grams of high-quality undenatured whey protein.
* 23 vitamins & minerals * Protein, energy-fueling carbs & good fats * High-fiber & active enzymes aid digestion
I added a serving of orange hydrate to my natural chocolate shake, and guess what? Just like Jaffa cakes 👌🏼 sooo good 😋
I legit wanted to cry during this workout because it was so hard and I was so sore 😭 Instead, I kept going, pushed my hardest, & felt amazing after it was over 💪🏼 Yes it was hard, but I got goals & I’m ready to crush them? Want to crush some serious goals together? Let’s do it 😘
Lunch was amazing!!! I need to just make this at home bc it's so filling and delicious!!! Grilled chicken, veggies, and brown rice. 😋 And I feel better since I had sime mini donut holes... from dunkin donuts earlier! I had a weekend of cheating, more than I would like. I struggle with staying on track with my goals over the weekends. What keeps you motivated over the weekend? 🤠#cleaneating#weightlossjourney#diet#cleanmeal#buildingmuscle#backontrack
