👋🏼L.O.O.K.I.N.G . F.O.R . A . P.E.R.S.O.N.A.L . T.R.A.I.N.E.R👋🏼 I know LOADS! But this one is special to me.

Here are our Top Five Favourite Banded Glute Exercises, to help shape and tone your butt. This workout is really simple and enjoyable (hopefully!), and most importantly….it works! For those starting out, you may even do these exercises with just bodyweight at first and progress to bands eventually. Try to "feel your glutes" as you perform the exercises through their full range of motion.
Banded Glute Bridge
Banded Squats + Reverse Lunge
Banded Side Walks
Banded Quadruped Hip Extensions
Banded Hip-Hinge Abductions
We recommend you perform 3 rounds with 60 seconds rest between each round. To progress to the next level, use a stronger band to increase tension and difficulty.
Last night I started a new training block. I love new training blocks because @briancookpl comes up with a new & creative training plan for me. I get bored of doing the same stuff & lots of volume so he does something specifically for me. .........
High rep squats last night moved well. Took it all out of me & my stomach was sore for a while after but all good. So these were 4x10@55kg RPE 6.5 (4 left)
What a beautiful day for.... the gym? Lol .
Being a full time student and balancing everything can be difficult, but excuses aren’t going to help plan. This week in particular I was personally very stressed and I’m not entirely sure why. But I do think there’s something to be said about aging. (Yes I am only 21) but, regardless it’s another year older another year past and looking towards the future and even though the future excites me it also terrifies me! ( I’m sure some of you can relate) regardless though my goals matter so I fit them in.
To be totally honest that session was 100% me time therapy. I was in the zone and I feel so relieved . I went in and just did what I love. I put in three movements to show three great movements that target all different parts.
I did a fulll body day today and it felt fucking amazing. Regardless of being in the gym for so long, I don’t really care because it’s my life and I needed a long session and the difference between now and what I used to do is this was coming from a healthy mindset and healthy body. ❤️
Ook zo benieuwd naar NLP?? (Neuro linguïstisch programmeren). In januari mag ik voor de volksuniversiteit in Almere (tegen heel leuk tarief😉) een Mini NLP practitioner geven.
In 5 avonden neem ik je mee in de wereld van NLP. Gewoon lekker praktisch, herkenbaar en toepasbaar.
Schrijf je in via de link en tot januari.
Ik heb er nu al super veel zin in😋
Since Fitbod reposted a photo of mine, I wanted to return the favor and do a quick plug for @fitbodapp. This is what my app looks like today, after our #thursdayworkout . Zero fresh muscle groups. Let me tell ya, this thing ain’t lying, my body completely agrees!! 😂🔥 I love using this app when it comes to our daily lifting sessions! It has helped enable me to be a better personal trainer by allowing me to utilize all of the time we have!! Following the amount of rounds and reps that the app suggests makes the time allotted to be used efficiently. Now, I have my app set for my body and strength, so what it recommends for a workout is set to target my desired gains, ensuring I don’t miss out...while still training. Meaning, since we only get an hour to lift, I workout along side the two ladies I train. This app has amped up our session ten fold and it’s been an awesome tool to use! I can keep track of my progress, while they keep track of theirs on their own! My husband @atlynch03 also uses @fitbodapp and he also loves it!! He was the one who introduced the app to me!! So far I’ve logged 52 workouts!!! .

Join Nihon Barbell Club's 30 Day Challenge to become fitter, healthier, and happier this new month! 💪
Our hope is that by the end of the month, you will be able to implement consistently two of the guidelines on our list. For those of you just starting out, we recommend to implement one thing off the list and try it for one week, before trying another one the following week. Some may be challenging than others but consistency is key 🔑 .
Fitness is a lifestyle. Take action and try to do things at your own pace, and overtime results will show. .
Throughout the new month, we will be exploring the benefits of each thing on the list, as well as explore solutions to unhelpful behaviors that are not aligned to our goals.
Strength versus Flexibility ?
Too much flexibility ? ~ You need strength
Too much strength ? ~ You need flexibility
I'd say the best is a good balance between strength and flexibility>>> Just how i like it a mix of strength and flexibility = the best combination ..
How do you like to mix things up in your workouts ? .
Thank you @mattmulveyphoto for the pic
