Those snazzy magazine ads and sponsored social media posts for supplement XYZ probably have you thinking about taking supplement XYZ, huh? If only you had that you’d be where you wanted to be! Right? Let’s keep this real brief. You don’t need supplements! Yes, you heard me. You don’t need ’em! Pre-workout? BCAAs? Test boosters? Fat burners? Nope! Not necessary. But hey, it’s your money and you’re the one slaving away selling hours of your limited time on Earth to help someone else achieve their dream while you get paid a pittance in return. So yeah, you can spend your money however you please! Creatine and good ole fashioned protein powder will suffice for most people, with proper nutrition and real food bearing the bulk of the responsibility for any change in your physique.
I’ve been struggling with change recently. I’d like to think I’m normally pretty open and flexible. But, my days have been consumed with stress (which REALLY is not great for my already high cortisol). I’ve been told to relax, and I’m trying! But there’s also a lot of change going on: . -My health issues have temporarily deprived me of my outlet: lifting heavy shit and raising my heart rate in the gym. -My body is changing. I’m not as “fit” as I like. -Researching and working with my doctors to gain my health back. But I’m learning all about hormones, adrenals, and autoimmunity. -My diet has gotten stricter. No sugar, no dairy, no soy. More fats and probiotics. -Gradually, I am slowing down, meditating, and incorporating stretching/yoga -My tech job comes to a close with the end of the year. Like serious stress. -The holidays are here! Travel, coordinating schedules, and preparation can always be a challenge. . What’s getting me through the change, the stress? Knowing I am blessed to have these opportunities for growth in my life. I am practicing gratitude and aligning my goals every morning. I am surrounding myself with those inspired for growth themselves, who are a wonderful support system. I am replacing fear with positivity, embracing the new, communicating my thoughts (verbally and through journaling), and continue to see the big picture . How do YOU deal with change? #embracethechange

👋🏽HAPPY H🍑MP DAAAY !! . I am making it to the gym today NO EXCUSES! So excited for a booty workout that’ll have me limpin out the gym. 😈 Trying to give 2018 a preview of what’s to come! Waiting for the new year to get serious about my body goals would be just ridiculous...don’t you agree? ☺️ . This was after my killer shoulder workout 💪🏽 courtesy of @fit.with.iulia! Loved it❤️...I don’t have a video for you but she does so go check it out! It was the perfect challenge for my shoulders as I am trying to work them more often. Also did some of my favs...inverted rows, front raises and Arnold presses 💪🏽 I admit shoulders used to be one of my least favorite muscles to train BUT I have grown to like them...not as much as legs though of course ☺️. Also did some ab circuits with the stability ball 🙂 the end.✌🏽
A common squat error is when the heels come off the ground at the bottom of the exercise. Although this may indicate tightness of the Soleus muscle I’ve realized that some people just need to be cued on keeping the heels grounded. This kind of squatting also lends to knee pain so make sure you’re performing the squat optimally! 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 As always L E V E L U P 🔥🔥🔥

Trained legs this morning and for the first time in a while I done some deficit Romanian deadlifts. Form wasn't great on my first few reps but this was easily corrected by focusing on elevating my lower back and driving through my heels to achieve a nice stretch on the back of my legs. ----------------------------------------------------Great exercise targeting the glutes, hamstrings and core, all the way up to your trapezius 💪🏼 by adding the deficit you massively increase the range of motion and time under tension. ----------------------------------------------------By using the Olympic lifting plates you can accurately measure the deficit. Progressions can by measured by distance, reps and weight lifted. Make sure the spine remains neutral. The second it begins to bend you're putting your back at risk of injury and no longer targeting the back of the legs. #personaltrainer#personaltraining#rdl#romaniandeadlift#training#legday#fitness#gymtips#gymadvice#glutesandhams#deficitdeadlifts#deficittraining#weighttraining#resistancetraining#lifestylefitness @kdhpersonaltraining
