So I've decided to upgrade my pre-workout.
I'm quite sensitive to stimulants due to my Anxiety Disorder so I've been using a non-stumulant product that is OK but not really up to the task.
I've read a lot of good reviews on this and it was on offer so thought I'd give it a go.
So far all I can report is that the taste (Blue Raz) is really good.
As for how it helps in the gym, we'll have to wait and see and I'll report back in a few hours
REST DAYS! Why are they important?
Having sufficient rest prevents injuries - rest days prevent overuse. That extends from running to lifting and even walking. If you push it too hard without a break, your muscles and joints suffer from overuse and that’s where injuries can happen. •
When you lift weights, you’re essentially tearing muscle fibers. But without a proper period of rest for your immune system to repair and grow the muscle, you’re not going to get the benefit of your training. That’s why you need to vary the muscle groups you engage on staggered days.
In general, it takes your body almost two weeks of non-activity before you start losing a noticeable amount of your progress or performance level. So don’t think that taking a day or two off from training will set you back all that hard work you’ve put in.
Too much exercise can put your body in a constant state of restlessness or on high alert making a good night’s sleep tough to achieve. Taking those rest days can help bring down your alertness and heart rate, which can help get you a night of sound sleep. A solid pattern of sleep will help you be your best on your most active days.
Without proper rest, your immune system can’t catch up to all the repairs your body needs. Resulting in injuries.
From a psychological view, taking a rest period can sort of refresh your hunger for exercise and help prevent burnout. Mental fatigue can be every bit as important as physical fatigue and taking a rest day helps to recharge the brain. •
Just like setting you daily / weekly goals, make some rest goals as well. What days can you put aside to completely focus on yourself? Find one or two and dedicate those days to yourself. It will make the rest of the workouts feel so much better once refreshed!
Мощная грудь является символом мужества и героизма, поэтому в бодибилдинге грудным мышцам придаётся особое значение. 6-ти кратный мистер Олимпия Дориян Ятс считает, что визитной карточкой этого спорта является не бицепс, как склонны считать многие новички, а мощная грудь! За счёт большого объема мышц, тренинг «пекторальной» требует большого расхода калорий, таким образом это ещё и полезно для сжигания лишнего жира.
На видео представлена одна из моих тренировок груди, с акцентом на ее нижнюю часть! Во избежании травм необходима хорошая и правильная разминка всего плечевого пояса! Все движения выполняются плавно и технично...Незабываем сохранять высокую интенсивность! Всем роста💪
Då börjar denna helg snart gå mot sitt slut och om någon timme rullar vi återigen tillbaka till Malmö.
Tack alla inblandade för en mysig och rolig helg, Norrköping kommer alltid ha en speciell plats i mitt hjärta.
Vem vet, kanske bosätter man sig här en dag? 😍😏
When i was @adonisathleticsgranville we used to have a white board which we wrote our monthly & yearly goals on. Which was great motivation especially on days that we didn't want to be there. All we had to do was look at that board as a reminder of why we were there. #goals are important in training as they are in every day life without them our lives would become stagnant. Work hard sacrifice fail and fail again just never give up.
You always hear people talk about working hard or working smart... but from my experience.. about 1% of people out there doing anything.. are only doing one of the two... or significantly favor one or the other.
You see this in people who have and preach all the knowledge in the world. But somehow their body never changes
And you see this in people that are shredded 10 months of the year.. but never make any real improvements to their physique.
One is smart but lazy, and the other works their ass off but isn’t much smarter than the barbells they lift.
I think this is the major problem amongst people who are slightly above average but will never be great
So the whole SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS OVER TIME part.. plenty of people can make progress through whatever method over a month or two maybe even a year. But how about a few years.. how about a decade. How many people have you seen out there, or do you even know of.. that have made significant progress toward their fitness or bb goals for the duration of 5+ years... that’s probably an extremely small list.. if anybody at all. And significant progress meaning you should have some pretty insane results after 5+ years. Not just “hey I went from fat to skinny” or “I used to weigh 100lbs and now I almost look like an athlete” but SIGNIFICANT is more along the lines of “I was a 130lb cross country runner, now I’m a national level classic physique competitor”😜 or “I beat cancer and I’m about to go win a bodybuilding show” ( @bobbyy_t ) I think a majority of the people in the fitness/bb community fall under the description of looking pretty dam good but really not showing any SIGNIFICANT progress over the last few years or so. I think it’s useful for anybody who saaays they take this shit seriously.. to really audit what their doing for both the effectiveness of the strategies they employ, and the actual execution of those strategies themselves.
