#thirstythursday I make sure I drink enough water every day because I know in my training it's going to pour out of me. #sweatfest Looks like a spooky face on my shirt 😱🤣🤣 #getfit #motivated #gymjunkie #neverquit #fitfamlife #fitover40 #wannabebeast #keepitpositive #whateverittakes #bodybuilding #buildingmuscle #goals #gymtime #teamnobullshit #mindset #positivevibes #traininsane #thursdaythoughts #sorrynotsorry #sweaty
In order to expose imbalances and weaknesses, especially for people like myself that spend a lot of time conventional deadlifting and squatting, it's super important to do unilateral work for the lower body. TRX balance lunges to single leg squats are one of my favorite post heavy squatting exercises. They don't feel like much while you're doing them, but trust me...the next day your quads and hams will hurt so good!!! - - Daniel Jannuzzi Personal Training: danieljannuzziusa@gmail.com - - #unilateralexercises #trx #trxsquats #trxlunges #trxexercises #legdays #squats #lunges #squatday #nyctrainer #nycpersonaltrainer  #nycpersonaltraining #nycfitnesstrainer #nycweightloss #toning #weightloss #nyctoning #buildingmuscle #nycbuildingmuscle #tranformation #fitnesstransformation #nyctransformation #nycfitnesstransformation
The 1st half of the week my after work "mommy schedule" is all over the place; however, #Queens don't complain, we simply adjust our crown and keep it movin'!!! So glad I was able to get in a spin class with @get_fit_tory before I picked up the kid from dance. I needed that class like I need air, it felt so good to leave it all on the bike. Thanks for an awesome class!

Bad Vs Great workout program... If you are not hitting each muscle group at least twice per week you are leaving a lot of muscle and strength on the table... If you are serious about gaining muscle then make sure you hit each body part twice per week! #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitnessaddict #fitnessjourney #fitnesslife #fitnessbody #weightloss #weightlosetransformation #ketoweightloss #weightlosshelp #weightlossgoal #weightlossdiet #photography #art #top #fashion #musclebuilding #buildmuscle #buildingmuscle #buildingmuscles #hypertrophy #business #businessowner #businessman #businesscoach #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurs
Hellooooo!! I’m Jackie and I’ve tried multiple times in the past to lose weight, but I constantly failed because I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted. Eventually one day I realized that I had start working out and change my unhealthy eating habits if I really wanted to better myself. Although I’m still working on myself, I’ve decided to motivate and inspire others along the way! Stay tuned if you are ready for workouts, motivation, and maybe even a few laughs💪🏼🏋️‍♀️✨ • • • • • • #changemindset #fitnessmotivation #stayconsistent #gyminspire #losingweight #youcandoit #fitness #changelifestyle #workoutmotivation #workouts #letsgetafterit #smallsteps #changinghabits #consistency #hardwork #creategoals #buildingmuscle #losingfat #wecan #fitnesslife #gymmotivation #fitnesstime #startnow #letsworkout #inspire #weightlifting #womenworkout #bemotivated #progresspics #progresstakestime
✅ Degree of resistance (which includes your bodyweight) is a key component to creating the necessary intramuscular tension— and subsequent ‘workload’ — in the process of training for muscle hypertrophy, or physique development. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ ✅The specific numerical quantification of that resistance is irrelevant other than giving you a way to make the selection of ‘needed’ resistance a more efficient process workout to workout. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ☑️Muscles do not give a “rat’s Glute Max” about how much weight you’re moving from “here to there”. 🔺Their only “language” is that of intramuscular tension and the workload performed with that tension. 🔺You can take a “lighter load” and make it ‘more’ demanding intramuscular-wise, and you can heave a “heavier weight” and have it only tax connective tissue, joints, and your spine to a greater degree. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 🛎It’s not about “light weight” or “heavy weight” but ‘sufficient overload’ and the subsequent degree of tension the targeted muscles experience. 💡Using “too light” of resistance is as unproductive as “too heavy” 🔺Yes, perceived “intensification” (not calculated relative to estimated 1-rep Max) is an essential attribute to understand and develop to tap into ‘your’ genetic muscle-building potential. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ ✅ If competitive lifting (or just wanting to be akin to human “fork lift”) is your primary training objective, then calculate every ounce of tonnage you accumulate. 🔺Lifting impressively heavy things is... impressive. 👉🏼 However... when developing your body is the ‘main thing’... Comparative number chasing may satisfy the human ego for a while, yet it’s an assured dead-end road when building muscle is your primary objective.
SUPER SHOULDERS by @apfau - If you enjoy my content, make sure to follow me, @apfau for daily fitness content 😁. - Here is a follow up to yesterday’s shoulder post with some more details and exercises to hit each part of the shoulder. Like I said yesterday, shoulders are a pretty small muscle group but don’t let that fool you. There are three parts that you need to hit to make sure you fully develop them. - Front delts are easy to target. They get hit with all pressing movements. For that reason, I personally don’t do any isolation exercises for them. Overhead presses and Arnold presses when combined with chest presses should be sufficient. If you don’t think it is, you can do front raises. - Rear delts a bit more difficult to hit. Like front delts get hit with pressing movements, rear delts get hit with all rowing movements. However, I still find most people’s rear delts are underdeveloped when compared to their front delts so I do recommend incorporating isolation exercises. Facepulls are my favorite one. - Side delts are probably the most difficult to develop. They will get hit in addition to front delts with any shoulder press movement but they do not get hit with chest pressing exercises or rowing exercises so they definitely need more isolation work. Some variation of lateral raises will be your best bet. Upright rows are another option but most people do them incorrectly which can cause shoulder issues. - If you are struggling with 𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 your 𝐦𝐚𝐜𝐫𝐨𝐬, setting up 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐭, and designing an 𝐞𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞, check out my 𝐞𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 by clicking the 𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐢𝐧 𝐦𝐲 𝐛𝐢𝐨💪🏼. - If you’re interested in working with me 1 on 1 for a custom plan tailored to your goals, send me an email for more information on online coaching. - #shoulderworkout #shoulderday #workoutroutine #workouttips #workouttime #workoutoftheday #fitnesstips #fitnesstrainer #personaltrainer #gymtime #buildingmuscle #musclegains #fitnessphysique #fittips #exercisedaily

Time to level up ! It’s bulking szn 🔥🔥
Follow @fitnesssfy For more information GET BIG NOW by @jmaxfitness - There's ONE THING you need to do that will guarantee muscle growth, and it's getting stronger in the 6-10 rep range. - For example, if you want to build your chest, and your max bench press is 135lbs for 6 reps, then your number 1 goal should be to add 100lbs to your bench press. Doing so will build a bigger chest. I promise. - The same goals for any other body part. Have skinny legs? Add 100lbs to your Bulgarian Split Squat. Does your back suck? Add 100lbs to your chinup. Crappy shoulders? Add 100lbs to your overhead press. I think you can see my point. - Take your time and the strength will come. For example, if you can currently bench 135lbs for 3 sets of 6 reps, then your next workout needs to be 135lbs for 7,6,6. The workout after that needs to be 135lbs for 7,7,6. Keep going until you can do 135lbs for 3 sets of 10 reps, then add weight and keep going. - Chase that strength. Weak guys don't have big muscles. Just look at Joffrey Lannister for an example of that. - If someone you know is trying to build muscle, then send them here. They need to hear this. - #physiquefreak #jacked #buildmuscle #workouttips #musclebuilding #musclegains #fitness #muscle #fitnesstips #buildingmuscle

CALORIES I have heard a lot of people say that they want to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. Unfortunately that is not possible. It is also not possible to target certain areas for fat loss. In order to be losing fat you need to be in a caloric deficit. Burning more calories than you are consuming. To be gaining muscle mass it's the opposite. You need to maintain a caloric surplus. Consuming more calories than you are burning. Neither of these things happen fast so you can't just switch back and fourth every week. You need to maintain whatever it is you want to do for a long period of time if you want to see results!!
