depending on your goal in your yoga practice and/or strength training program; how you load your body/muscles needs to be specific and would need to line up with that goal or purpose.
my goal is to apparently stare at my chest. i’d say mission accomplished.
If you love it, put a ring on it 💍
Gymnast rings, that is... on your program...
Incorporating ring training to your regime can not only help you look crazy impressive 🤪 but they’ll also offer an unparalleled movement resulting in increased joint health by recruiting all your stabilising muscles.
Here’s Aaron, showcasing his skin the cat (WHO NAMED THIS?! 😧) which ends in a ‘German hang’ - an excellent shoulder stabilisation & stretch, with the back roll providing some ridiculous core training.
For an added bonus - IT’S FUN!

Fantastic day down the allotment, slight negative being we must have had a ground frost last night that killed off or knocked back some of the plants including some sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkin and courgette plants so we harvested some of what was there. Also gave a few things away including pumpkins, squash and tomatoes, always nice to share. There was a huge delivery of logs to the site and was great to be there to get first dibs on the huge logs some that were heavier than me lol💪🏾😉 so an awsome workout too. We also grabbed the last of the leaf mould to be able to top up the no dig beds. Moved the rest of the sweet potatoes and Christmas potatoes into the polytunnel for safety.
Planted up my purple sprouting broccoli also planted up a lovely willow that was given to me as a gift from the community plot for helping them and for all the plants that I have given to them this year. Such lovely people.
Looks great by the pond 🌱
When I got home i cooked some delicious sweetcorn 🌽 aubergines 🍆 and sweet potatoes and some fresh rhubarb, lemongrass, ginger and chia jam which i love as its healthy too 😎👊

Does your shoulder hurt mid way through an overhead reach? Does it hurt when you try to lower your arm? The scapula CANNOT be overlooked. When treating the shoulder for pain or dysfunction MAKE SURE you’re getting your scapula looked at. I’ll be going over some powerful treatment options in the next few posts so stay tuned!
3 months between these pictures. Diet was not on point. I'd have days when I'd track macros and days were I'd just guess my portions. I also had days were we'd get take out cause...life happens. I plan to get better these next 3 months and see where training and nutrition will take me. Main priority is strength. Secondly, to lose more inches. All around just better agility and more strength, obviously be a lot healthier too. #muscle#fatloss#functionalfitness#valkyriebarbell
PUSH (Chest, Triceps, Abs, Quads) Day ✔️ #TruFit 🎾💪⚡️- Today I was able to do 6 good reps (with two spotters 😅) with 80s (right around my body weight 165lbs) on Incline Dumbbell Press. Not bad for a teaching tennis pro and player who runs and swings his racquet every day.💥... and thats without even taking any preworkouts or any other supplements, besides my Buck Feed Protein 🦌(Check Out the Link in my Bio for more Quality Product Info) 💯👍 and a MultiVitamin at the moment. Cant wait to try out @deerantlerspray and Bucked Up Pre Workout! Maybe even a Testo Booster for the first time ever and some Creatine. About to place a big order with @buckedupsupps within the next few days! 🤙I hope you had/have a great workout/practice and a great day! 😎✌️
Not the finish we were looking for, but always a good day when competing side by side with @russmocksyou and @codystenberg. Managing to hit a couple PRs (335# S2OH and 18 Unbroken Muscle-ups) on competition day is always nice.
Thanks to everyone that come out to support and congratulations to all those who competed. Strong #mcfnation showing at this years @8thdaygym #grgames2018 .
#workoutwednesday brings our second benchmark 3 Amigos!
This 3 round workout is an assault on the upper body and lungs with enough lower body to keep you moving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3 rounds is short enough to really push the pace on the row and go unbroken on the SDHP and BBJO. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The recommended weight for the SDHP is 42.5kg for the blokes and 30kg for the sheilas.
Give it a crack and let us know how you go in the comments!
Weekly workout #3 Standing bike sprints
Designed to increase speed and power
3 Quick Tips:
1) Have the resistance high 8-9 / 10
2) Keep your core tight
3) Lock your hips
Swaying of the upper body for momentum
Multiple times throughout the competition @jruck1729 and I kept bringing up this theme of seeing our progress in the macro and realizing that we can’t see it in the daily grind but that we noticed a huge difference from last year to this years @thegranitegames.
Rewind to last year and there was an event that included handstand walking. Last year @jruck1729 was improving on his handstand walking ability before the comp but never under fatigue or for long distances. Throughout the 5 rounds of that workout the fatigue was catching up to him resulting in failing some required distances, leaving him pretty frustrated. Fast forward to this year and on the third day there was 2x60 feet segments of handstand walking programmed, needless to say @jruck1729 hit the walk unbroken with confidence! Sometimes progress is hard to see in the micro but look back a year or more and be grateful of how far you have come.
He also hit 19 unbroken ring muscle ups unbroken in another workout for a huge PR! —————————————————
⤵️TUESDAY TRUTH TIME⤵️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I started my fitness journey there was nothing more that I wanted to do, than to influence others. As time went on, my passion turned to fear - thinking 💭 I wasn’t good enough, I didn’t have enough followers, I didn’t have a crazy bomb physique like most fitspo girls.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was ALL a LIE. A lie I believed for so long. A lie that dictated what I pursued. I finally said enough is enough 🙅🏽♀️ and said I AM enough. Last week was my first BBR Outdoor Bootcamp, and although I didn’t have the turnout I expected, I will continue to host my Bootcamps because it brings me pure joy, even if only two people show 😂, because that is ✌🏽 people I am influencing. Two more than I would be if I just crawled into my shell 🐚 and let FEAR dictate what I pursue.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I challenge you to step out of your shell and pursue what you love - FULL FORCE.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you’re in the Orlando area I’d love to see you at my BBR Bootcamps on Sundays @ 4pm! 🙋🏽♀️ DM me or email email@example.com to reserve your spot!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For Private Personal training/online coaching inquiries DM me or 📧 me firstname.lastname@example.org and click the link on my bio! 💁🏽♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
