Resistance training is essential for bone and muscle health. Starting younger and continuing through aging can be especially beneficial.
•The aging of the musculoskeletal system is strongly associated with health or morbidity.
•Muscle and bone not only interact mechanically but through secreted biochemical signaling molecules.
•The musculoskeletal system secretome most likely has effects on metabolism and function of other organs.
•The musculoskeletal system is the mediator of the positive effects of exercise.
One feature both bone and muscle have in common is that their tissues are mechanically loaded and many of their secreted factors are regulated by load. This mechanical loading, also known as exercise, has beneficial effects on many systems leading to the hypothesis that muscle and bone factors can be responsible for the beneficial effects of exercise. Many of the characteristics of aging and diseases associated with aging such as sarcopenia andosteoporosis and neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia, are delayed by exercise. This beneficial effect has been ascribed to increased blood flowincreasing oxygen and nutrients, but could also be due to the secretome of the musculoskeletal system

#depletionworkout day two!
First things first, I forgot how much I hate the feeling of depletion workouts! Doing them for prep is it’s own monster in itself, and since I haven’t competed in over a year 😱😅 I got used to my excess carbs! Thankfully, today is my refeed day and so is tomorrow, but I’m NOT looking forward to pulling two-a-days! I will say that I’m happy that my obliques came back in but not so happy about the joint/tendon sensitivity that comes with these workouts.
Today’s lone workout proved to be extremely testing mentally as I wanted to quit every time I finished any set, for any of my chest/shoulder workout I did today. I’ll say this, having a lifting partner has its benefits!
I can only wait to see what this long road to pro brings me! I’m eternally grateful for every pothole, every bump, every setback and lessened learned along the way! Because failure builds character, success breeds addiction!
Happier then I’ve been in a long time! Not to say that things are perfect and that bad things aren’t still happening. But i can say that the people you let into your life really does affect how you live your life ❤️
Right on pace to finish the year looking my best yet. I’m excited to see where I’m at in 16 days! I couldn’t do it without my Blackstone Labs team! :) currently on: 2 servings of viperX, 2 servings of RecompX, and a couple other little random things like 3-whey, bronkaid, yohimbine, etc. Grab everything you need at blackstonelabs.com and use discount code: AnthonyCoates to finish your year strong too!
Stay Patient and Trust Your Journey ♥️ .
Today i am 16 weeks out from the PRO STAGE! 😱👠 I cant believe it! Time is just flying by. My coach @aliciagowans_wbffpro and I are working on growing my posterior chain and a little more in my shoulders too. So far I am up an inch in my glutes and quads 🙌🏼 happy about my progress thus far and still pushing myself every single day to grow even more. I know I need to be patient because it takes TIME to grow ⏰ but sometimes it’s hard for me. .
I want to grow faster and be where I need to be NOW! But i know it doesn’t work that way. It takes time, consistency, and dedication. So for now I will continue to lift heavier, eat more calories, and TRUST the process. I’ll get there. I know I will 💪🏼 .
Happy Saturday everyone! Whether you’re just starting your journey now, or you’ve been on it for months/years just remember to be patient, trust the process, and believe in yourself✨ don’t ever give up!
Hit a new deadlift PR today, 205 for 6! Did 4 sets but on my fourth could only get 4 reps. I haven’t been focusing much on deadlifts with my programming lately, been focusing more on hip thrusts. I’ve been doing 185 for 6 since the last time I posted a video deadlifting, on the rare occasions I get to sumo deadlift.
Wasn’t going to lift at all today because I did 45 minutes of cardio and was just not feeling it, but my peeps @_kayylakayy_ @r_urbaniak and @missmaggie17 told me to just do it so I did, and it turned out to be fucking awesome. I only recorded this set to check on my form to make sure my back wasn’t arching and low and behold I’m good.
Happy Saturday friends. Get the shit done you don’t want to, like this Christmas shopping I’m about to do 🙃
Through my 15 years of weight training and 2 years of competing, I've learned:
1) there are definitely more people taking PEDs than I was aware of. Like regular every day gym folks take PEDs - which is totally fine just eye opening.Just let you know that you should
2) aim to only improve on yourself, and not compare to someone else. Comparison is the thief of joy, which will steal from noticing all the results you've made. I've also learned that
3) bulking doesn't mean eating crap all day. Eat more clean, nutritious food to build adequate muscle. I still might eat 2, max 3, cheat meals a week; but thats out of 35 total meals a week. And bulking is only for when you're already lean! Also,
4) dont live a forever fat loss diet. To the body, muscle is a luxury and fat is a necessity. The more you're losing weight, the more prone you are to losing muscle - if you're natural of course. Skinny fat is real and serious, and can also lead to anorexia. Number 1 tip I've learned is to
5) keep a balance diet. Diet doesn't mean fat loss, just what you consistently eat on a daily basis. When I'm ready to cut again, I can just take out just a little of what I alread eat over time, add an additional 15 minutes to cardio and etc. .
