I don’t have any time to workout .
I work crazy hours and that makes finding time to exercise impossible. My kids have activities going on every other night of the week. I travel all the time for work
I never know where I’m going or when I’m going.
My job is so stressful that I don’t have any energy left when I get home.
It’s just too expensive to eat healthy these days.
I wouldn’t know what to do at the gym even if I went.
Do any of those statements sound familiar? Have you used any of them?
We use these obstacles as validation to ourselves that it is just not in the cards for us to get in shape right now.
Our fitness is always the thing we plan to get to later…
You know, when we have more time!
HERE’S THE HOLE IN THAT PLAN…
The problem with that way of thinking is that that magical day we are waiting for when all of a sudden we won’t be busy anymore and we will have tons of free time…That Day Does Not Exist!! It does not exist. That is the realization you need to make right now.
Those excuses are never going anywhere. You will always have them standing in your way.
Yay, another puzzle toy! When hoomama found out I still have 1 more vaccination to go before freedom, I will be staying at home to be sure. To keep me busy and my hyperness at bay, she thinks of and buys puzzles for me to solve 🥰🐶🤗🥮
SUNDAY SHUTDOWN #31 BCAA’S
Branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) have been big business in the health and fitness industry for a while now. That being said I still get asked about them and I still know people taking them. It makes me angry sometimes. 🤬
Out of the nine amino acids that make up protein, three of them are of the branched chain variety:
The most important of the three in terms of muscle gain and maintenance is leucine, the other two have no added benefit. So here’s your first hurdle, you are paying for those extra two for no reason. No benefit, nada.
Most individuals currently taking or considering taking BCAA’s are those who actually give a sh*t about training and nutrition. They will already be taking on additional protein and be conscious of what they consume throughout the day. They will also be easy to market new products to. The thing is, if you are hitting your protein target/threshold per day then there is absolutely no benefit in taking these. The only time they may be beneficial is in super low protein meals, which you are unlikely to be eating.
An in depth review of the science conducted by Wolfe in 2017 found no human studies that showed an increase in muscle protein synthesis after taking BCAA supplements orally. And when taken intravenously it actually resulted in muscle breakdown and less muscle synthesis.
A time when they may be useful are for those participating in ultra-endurance events, think #ironman. And this is due to the severe carbohydrate depletion towards the end of the exercise period, we are talking like 6 hours in. Once your carbohydrate stores are gone, your body will start to breakdown protein to use for fuel, not ideal, but by taking BCAA’s this can limit the amount of protein broken down which is going to assist with your performance right to the end and also your recovery too.
If you are an avid BCAA user, try investing your money elsewhere and perhaps think about other areas of your diet and or nutrition which may have got you those results. #justsayin

✨Good morning ✨ ✖️The best way to start the morning ✖️19.6g plant based protein ✖️30 fruits, veggies + berries ✖️5 vegan omegas ✨Fun fact ✨ ✖️Macronutrients: Macronutrients are required daily in large quantities. They include proteins, fats, carbohydrates, some minerals, and water. ✖️Micronutrients: Micronutrients are required daily in small quantities - in milligrams (one thousandth of a gram) to micrograms (one millionth of a gram). They include vitamins and certain minerals that enable the body to use macronutrients. These minerals are called trace minerals because the body needs only very small amounts. ✖️All of the nutrients to start the day 💁🏻♀️
No tak… od czego by tu zacząć…
Ta część historii jest dosyć dynamiczna a zarazem krótka i intensywna mimo tego nie żałuję ani jednej sekundy podróży tym samolotem z którego udało mi się w końcu wysiąść… 🤜🤛 Co prawda czas imprezy trwał 6 miesięcy.
To nie był to wypad na weekend. To było 6 miesięcy ciągłego bycia w stratosferze 🐽
to był mój drugi dom 🥰 - baa jest dalej - mówi się dom tam jest, gdzie serce Twoje 😈
Dlatego nie było pytań "czy będę" tylko "o której".
Mógłbym rzec klasycznym " o siedemnastej! "
I Pamiętajcie - Pomarańcza to nie miejsce 😏😍 Mnóstwo nowych doświadczeń, znajomości, błędów, I sytuacji które zostawiły mocną KRECHĘ w mojej pamięci 🙄🤭... I mimo że nie jestem dumny z wszystkiego to na pewno nie cofnął bym niczego 😎 - dostałem wiele lekcji, i sam byłem nią dla wielu 🐽 - więc myślę że w konsekwencji wszystkiego wyszło tak jak wyjść miało… 😏
Mówi się "czas na powrót" A tak naprawdę nie wracam nigdzie tylko idę dalej - z wyciągniętymi wnioskami i reklamówka wspomnień z biedronki.
Spodziewajcie się - niespodziewanego 👨✈️
Ps. Nie oznaczyłem wszystkich bo musiał bym spędzić 2h na oznaczanie całej kadry 🤭. Ale każdy kto powinien się tu znaleźć - wie... 😈
Here is an #exercise that's normally overlooked, or at least performed with a dumbbell, if with a barbell (like I am); well then not quite like I am executing it. •
I wanted to hit the lats hard, and that meant an almost parallel chest (to the floor) with a super focus on driving the elbow as further out/back as I could. All this with a steady and controlled motion (strict) ...so forget the ego lift on this one; as your core will probably fail you anyway. •
Performed this #workout as a #superset, right after the supinated incline bench press. It's a fiery compound that will engage the entire back, shoulders, and arms (the trapezius, rhomboids, teres major and minor, deltoids, infraspinatus, biceps, brachialis, brachioradialis) and pecs too. Let's get to it. •

السبب الي يخليني أتمرن هو الحياة الصحية ورياضة بشكل عام بالنسبة لي عبارة عن أسلوب حياه
مجرد ما يكون جسمك مرتب اي استايل ولبس راح يكون شكله ضابط عليك
وأنت هل الرياضة أسلوب حياه عندك ولا مجرد تسليه وضياع وقت؟
Health and sport is part of my lifestyle
The moment you start to have great body, you can rock any style u like
Why do you workout?
Endorphins! ♥️ A mi nomas me pasa que cuando hago actividad física después estoy más contenta? China de felicidad 🙌🏼

🧘🏻♂️ FOOD FOR THOUGHT 🧘🏻♂️
It is logical that people would want to empty their minds of constant streams of emotions. They want to find some peace of mind, some silence. But we aren’t machines with files you can simply delete! Emptying our minds is not something we can do.
We want to empty our minds because we can’t deal with our thoughts. So we become saturated with everything happening around us, and we feel the need to cut ourselves off it, even if it means becoming groggy and numb.
Meditating is totally different. It’s not about escaping into restlessness, or cleaning out your mind with a vacuum; rather, it’s about being wholly present to everything that is. learn to accept everything going on around you. Don’t focus on the past, and don’t forget it either. But the goal is to focus wholly on the present and just the present. Figure out what is bothering you, what stresses are hanging over you, and then calmly learn to find different methods of resolving them. The sooner you accept the present and accept your surroundings, the sooner life becomes easier. You’ll feel an overwhelming feeling of relief because instead of panicking, trying to forget, and denying things going on around you, you have accepted them. You have learned to live with them, and now you can truly work on trying to make a better life for yourself.
