Squats this week 3x6 at 50kg. Weight feeling quite light on my shoulders and feeling relatively strong. Heaviest on my back since tearing my ankle ligament so happy days. Followed by Bulgarian squats and glute thrusters.
When your client does her first competition and lifts numbers in all 3 lifts she has never touched before 😍 Squat 87.5kg Bench 50kg Deadlift 100kg Pb total (based on training PBs): 15kg at 57kg El works part time. Is a mum to 2 kids and fits in her training no matter what. Our 2 goals which should be everyone's goals were: to remain injury free and maintain positioning under heavier weights. Now onto some hypertrophy training😍💪💪💪 super proud of this girl!
My amazing client El hitting an easy PB squat of 82.5kg at 57kg body weight. From not being able to squat with no weight at the start of the year due to some serious hip pain....we have let that rest and focused on technique and consistency with reps (running hypertrophy cycles) and boom the heaviest squat she has ever performed with what looks like more in the tank. She works...is a mum of 2....and follows her program diligently in conjunction with perfect nutrition and mobility. Super happy El, comp in 11 days😍😍 El has proved that by executing good technique and accumulating volume through a few hypertrophy cycles prior to more strength focused cycles....strength increases whilst form is maintained.
Thanks very much to our spotters😁 Also thanks to squad gym, an amazing gym thats super clean with the best equipment!
Todays upper body session 3x8 40kg up 1 rep/set vs. Last week and about 6 weeks since I have recommenced benching since hurting my shoulder Chins 6, 3, 3, 3 Seated single arm cable row 3x8 15kg bar bicep curl BW dips 3x15 HIIT tonight Follow a tailored training program. One that is no BS. Stop doing stupid exercises that dont even have a real name😆
Not posting regularly but training has been consistent. Last weeks squats at 62.5kg 3x6 followed by a couple sets of tempo squats, split squats, hamstring curls and DB SLDL. All about the booty. In all seriousness though if your training is consistent, if you're not increasing weight or reps or sets (volume) over time you probably wont see results. Training should be measured and volume always increased this isn't just for weight lifting but anything you want to better at.
If your training is smart, planned, somewhat challenging and calculated and not a "whatever you feel lile doing" kind of session you will see results body composition and strength wise😊
