Properly Isolate Your Hamstrings
Don't get me wrong, both of the methods used above are correct when performing a leg curl. I'm merely highlighting an extremely useful technique to isolate your hamstrings and take your calves out of the equation. This can be done for seated AND lying leg curls.
A great idea is to go a little lighter, start with the method on the right and superset with the method on the left.
Don't forget compound movements like the Romanian Deadlift for your hammies. Hit them with different exercises, rep ranges, and hit them hard af. You've gotta put in that work if you wanna be 3D.

Let's bring it back to last year when I started this page...
I had no idea about nutrition, macros, food intake in general. All I knew was that I needed lots of protein to be "strong like bull." Lol, but I wanted more than that...
That guy in on the left was me the first day I started a "12 week transformation" challenge. Who knew what kind of monster that would create inside of me...
I managed to create a pretty aggressive fat loss over the 12 week period (37 lbs) but it was unhealthy and frankly, I felt like a bag of dicks.
Thank god I had friends like @jleofit_nurse and @tyhopkins9 to teach me more about nutrition, being overall just a more healthy and well rounded athlete, and helping me realize that this thing isn't just a 12 week thing, it can actually turn in to a motivating, self learning, ever growing lifestyle.

Everyone have a great day. Much love from over on this side. Wes from Canada.
These are the things I concentrate on when trying to lose BODY FAT
Tag a friend who loves dirty bulking!!!
Let me take you through a scenario... Last year I did a 12 week body transformation challenge through @muscletech . I went from 215 lbs to 178 lbs in that 12 week period, which is pretty aggressive for fat loss when trying to preserve muscle. I was waking up at crazy hours to do fasted cardio, getting anxiety about eating carbs and not going to the gym twice a day, and just generally unhappy and worn down. My wife could tell, my friends could tell - they all wanted it to end as much as I did. As bad as I looked and felt, I still wanted to fully commit.
I can't tell you how HAPPY I was for it to be over! Not because I hate dieting, but because i was developing a bad relationship with food and exercise, again (I was about 260 lbs by the 10th grade).
This time around, dieting has been FUN. It doesn't have to suck, and you don't have to feel like you're always fighting the clock. It's great to set goals and perhaps deadlines, but not when it consumes every part of your life.
I started this diet by taking 80-100 calories away from my diet each week instead of using a crash diet that wasn't sustainable. I now prioritize strength and make sure I get enough nutrients in to my body on the daily. If I feel tired, I rest. If I feel small and weak, I'll go back up to around maintenance calories for a day or two until I feel better. And if I FALL OFF TRACK, I rebound the next day instead of beating myself up and letting it consume me.
Let me clear things up, this post isn't to show you that I'm only happy when I'm lean, it was meant to show you how unhappy I am with myself when I just let it all go. I grew up obese and was made fun of for it, so I take pride in being able to control that part of my life - that's all. It's my thing and my insecurity, but I'm starting to develop a good relationship with food and training.
This is me.
This is now.
Not completely shredded.
Not too fat.
Eating like a King.
Heart full of hopes and dreams.
Belly fulla Cinny Toast Crunch.
Happy with my progress.
Ready to take on whatever life has in store.
My name is Wes from Canada.
Fuck with me.
No matter WHO you are, there's someone out there that wants to be in your shoes... think about that for a while.
Every time I do, I realize how much I've been taking for granted and how much I've been doubting myself a little too much. Look, you're awesome and don't think otherwise. Work your ass off, be kind to people, and drink lots of water lol.
By the way, it was back and delta today. Finished off my session with some drop set hammer curls for the bicep tap out. Grab the weight by the bottom of the handle and really hold on tight, not letting it slip. You can really work on building your grip strength while also doing your bicep finisher yooo.
