"My fitness journey...⬇️⠀ I started going to the gym 3 years ago. I had done no sport for years. I had 0 muscle and didn’t look athletic at all! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ as you can see my hips have always been slightly wide however, my bum was very flat/a bit saggy! I also had a lot more cellulite then, there is nothing wrong with cellulite but personally, my skin condition already gives the illusion of cellulite (which I hated). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have made most of my progress in the last year due to eating right & increasing my training! ⠀ I want you all to remember that everyone starts somewhere and never give up♥️!

GLUTES 🙌🏻 save and try this if you wanna kill em off💀⠀ .⠀ Didn’t feel at all well/ myself this morning and to be honest haven’t really the last week or so! But getting up this morning and getting it done felt good☺️.⠀ .⠀ Workout;⠀ .⠀ ▪️warm up - resistance band abductions⠀ .⠀ ▪️hip thrusts with 10 second pause on last rep - 5x5⠀ .⠀ ▪️lunge variation - this consisted of a wide stance lunge to hit the glutes followed by a curtsy lunge (one of both counts as one total rep) - 20 reps x3 sets⠀ .⠀ ▪️tempo single leg thrusts (take 3 seconds on the way down lowering the weight before exploding back up) - 8 reps on each leg x3 sets :SUPERSET - x20 reps on each leg (do this at the end of each set of the previous exercise)⠀ .⠀ ▪️cable hip abduction - I remember someone saying they didn’t like the standing cable abduction I usually do so this is a variation which you can still incorporate progressive overload on - 3 sets of 15 reps 💪🏻⠀ Via @beth_fitnessuk

AMAZING Transformation By @kaytedoesit⠀ -⠀ At 263 pounds, everything was difficult. I would circle parking lots forever to find a close spot, I would avoid stairs at all costs, and don’t even get me started on the misery that was shopping for jeans in a pre-leggings world. Every day was uncomfortable. ⠀ I’d made the decision to change many times. I would “try” to eat better and I would “try” to workout more, but I always let excuses get in my way. There was even a gym I could use for free at my job and I never took advantage of it. One day, it just clicked. I needed something to jumpstart my journey and I needed to take this change seriously. ⠀ I know what it’s like to walk into a gym as a morbidly obese person and feel intimidated. I remember questioning what I’d gotten myself into and thinking it would be easier not to workout. It IS hard work. It is mentally challenging. It’s exhausting. The life I was living before was all of those things too, but the challenges that arise along this journey are so much more rewarding than the challenges I faced being overweight.
