I felt compelled to post this after seeing about 4 people post lateral raise videos this morning. One was saying "after bending my elbows I can do so much more weight!" Well yeah, no shit, cuz you're changing the length of the "lever". I even saw a comment from someone saying "I tried this and my rotator cuff is sore for weeks" smfh. So I'll go through some common lateral raise mistakes. Shout out to @bodybuildingcom, they have a good article on it (where I stole the pictures). #1 - Fitting I start with this one. Don't bend your elbows to 90 degrees. A small bend is perfect. #2 - Don't drop your elbows. If you can't do them without dropping your elbows, lower the weight. #3 - Don't change the angle of your elbow during the movement. The (small!) elbow bend should stay the same from bottom to top. #4 - Don't completely extend your arms. Remember a small bend is perfect for this movement. #5 - You can go above shoulder height. There now everyone should have perfect form 🤣🤣
Regrann from @therock - Once you know what it’s like to truly be hungry, you’ll never be full. But when you operate daily as if you’re f*cking starving for success, that’s when your entire universe will shift. Shout to my boy @philheath for the anchoring perspective as he prepares to take the Olympia stage to defend his crown. I’ve been on an 18week brutal training & diet program preparing to shoot my Fast & Furious spin-off, “HOBBS & SHAW”. The starve philosophy came at the perfect time. Train hard and stay strong. And cheers to never being full. #StarvePhilosophy #NeverFull #IronParadise #WhereFakeSweatIsNonExistent 😈 - #regrann
This! Regrann from @dustyhanshaw08 - Hearing a particular movement in the gym is great for bringing out detail is right up there with hearing doctor dipshit Jim claiming he has particular movements to hit his "lower bicep." I promise... A muscle contracts or it doesn't. My back is one of the most "detailed" muscles on my body and what creates that detail (beyond being sliced out of my skull) is the amount of muscle that I have back there... It's absolutely not due to some pinky twisting cable movement that magically creates "detail." You want more detail? Get more depth to your muscle and then get inside out shredded. That is all. @mutantnation#mutantnation#hard2core#earnyourspot#projectsupermutant - #regrann
Wise words from @therock 👏👏 Go break through your barriers!
#Repost@therock (@get_repost) ・・・ Break thru your barriers 💦 💪🏾 After months of strict training and diet, we had a big breakthrough day in the gym today with new levels of strength, shape and intensity. Made a promise to the FAST & FURIOUS fans and franchise I’d come thru in the best shape of my life and deliver a fresh, exciting movie to the world. Been clangin’ & bangin’ hard core on this iron since I was 13yrs old, so it’s always fun to break thru barriers with new gains and raise the bar. And yes, when I was 13 I did tell myself “stop cryin’ like a little bitch and get in the gym and make something of yourself” when we got evicted off the island for not being able to pay rent. It worked. And I need therapy. And a cheat meal. #BreakThruYourBarriers#IGotU#HobbsAndShaw
Happy father's day, dad!! He's middle left next to Goldberg. He's taught me so much over the last 28 years, I'm lucky to have him. Ps who else's dad has taken a picture with @goldberg95 wearing jorts and a fanny pack?? Epic.
Trying a new mass gainer! ***@redcon1 MRE*** I am replacing my morning protein shake with a "mass gainer" shake so pretty much the same thing plus carbs. I'm going to try a couple different ones so I'll post about the others when I get them. What drew me to MRE is the carb sources. Rolled oats is the first ingredient. Most "mass gainer" shakes have maltodextrin as the carb source which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'll be drinking it in the morning between meals and nowhere near when I workout so I wanted something like rolled oats vs maltodextrin. Now to the review!
Taste - 9/10 - Blueberry cobbler is amazing
Macros - 8/10 - 75g carbs, 47g protein, 4g fat in a serving is great especially with the ingredients. Could be a little higher in protein and carbs imho.
Ingredients - 9/10 - Second to none in this; rolled oats/sweet potato carb sources, multiple animal proteins and pea/brown rice protein. You're getting all the essential amino acids and then some.
Gains - TBD - I've had one serving so far so we will see once I finish this 25 serving jug. I'll make another post about it. I'm not changing much else with my diet.
Overall - 8+/10 - Very solid meal replacement product with great taste and ingredients.
I kind of like reviewing products and I'm always trying new ones so I'm going to try to keep doing reviews like this.
