Training core has it's place
-
☝️however if losing weight and having visible abs is your goal, a rigorous ab routine alone won't suffice.
-
👉training core can be beneficial for longevity. to a varying degree, your core is active in almost all lifts . the stronger your core is, the more stability you will have. -
-
👉training your core can help build thickness through your "abs" but if you want to even be able to notice this, you will have to watch what you eat.
-
👉you can't spot reduce f*t with exercise. situps don't give you abs. diet is arguably the most important part of any f*t loss phase, nailing that is what will deliver the body composition goals you are after.

Over the last few months i'm finally at the point where i no longer miss being lean and instead i am very excited about the consistent intensity being brought to my sessions.
-
i'm making sure i put this excess of calories to good use and trying to make sure that weight gained is productive (not just piling on f*t for the sake of increasing scale weight).
-
am weight sitting at 176lbs or ~80kg.

The rationale behind this post is simply i don't want my page to only be a highlights reel.
-
one of my weaker shots
-
there's no where to hide when your up on stage.
-
to grow and progress you've got to get used to being uncomfortable.

Something that i have come to learn is cardio is a tool and not a fundamental of losing fat.
-
cardio has it's benefits obviously from a health perspective an obvious example being the improvement to your heart health.
-
from a f*t loss perspective.. if you give yourself enough time and diet right.. it is entirely possible to get lean on minimal to no cardio.
-
doctors, surgeons etc look at how f*t is metabolized in obese people and subsequently cardio is prescribed to help improve heart health and circulatory system function.
-
the takeaway from this... if your goal is to be the best possible athlete and maintain performance maybe running yourself into the ground with cardio isn't the best move.
-
i know from personal experience that whilst dieting doing too much cardio killed my recovery and i lost more muscle than i would have otherwise.
-
as always, track your results and make your own informed decision. don't be afraid to try new ways.

It wont happen by chance
-
if getting lean is your goal it is crucial that you make everyday count.

that pizza and icecream could be the difference between reaching your goal or delaying it for another 2 weeks.
-
surely not? a cheat is good? one meal or binge off plan is fine and will "boost the metabolism". -
-
theres no science that shows a sustained increase to bmr after a cheat. -
and yes it is possible to gain f*t in one day from one
meal.
-
there's different levels to this, if you're more general population trying to "tone up", balance is more achieveable and more important.
-
but if your serious and more into the fitness/bodybuilding scene, consider if you will feel more satisfied stuffing your face for 5 minutes or walking around having a body that reflects work ethic and something that can't be bought.

"improvement" season update
-
the motivation right now is simple.
-
"train like you want to grow"
-
after the initial newcomer gaining phase has subsided, a natural bodybuilder is doing well if a single kg of actual muscle tissue a year is accrued.
-
then again the goal is not just to do well.
-
i'm all in and pushing my body as hard as possible in the hope of making big noteable improvements next time i step on stage.

I'm very proud of the progress made by my client and now close mate will.
-
-
it's a proud moment when your talking to someone in the gym and they begin talking about this "shredded guy" they've seen round not knowing you coach them.

his goal was to get leaner in the space of ~4 months and he nailed that whilst still working full time and making time for his family.

dieting is never easy. however if you make a plan and commit it is achievable.

You've just finished getting to your desired bodyfat %... what now?
-
depending on your goal you have two options both having their pros and cons.
-
1) maintain your condition. this means you get to remain looking in good shape but at the cost to (amongst other things) your performance and muscle growth.
-
2) enter a growth phase. this will mean you can start to gain muscle tissue and strength but you will have to be ready to gain bodyfat and lose some of those lines you have just worked so hard for.
-
this is my look a bit over a month post show after i had completed a "recovery phase" and was still reversing. if done correctly, a growth phase doesn't mean you have to turn into a walrus in a matter of days.
-
the dieting down is over, that doesn't mean it's time to take shortcuts.

Results 🤷‍♂️
-
it won't happen overnight. this is 1.5yrs difference and much better posing on the right.
-
there are many ways you can trigger muscle growth.. some just more effective.
-
just because you've seen someone advocate a certain method of training on instagram doesn't mean it will yield the same results for you.
-
how to promote muscle growth ? there are many ways. to list a few..
-
👉lift more weight.
👉 accumulate more volume (do more sets)
👉 increase frequency (train more often)
👉 implement time under tension sets or vary movement tempo.
👉dropsets/reduce your rest periods inbetween sets
👉eat in a surplus
-
the best way to track your results and see what is working is to be accountable. log your lifts and take your progress shots 👊

Chipping away at my canvas 🎨
-
looking at this shot reminds me of a post i read by someone i look up to @ajmorris_ . i've got a bit of kit on here.
-
why? simply, i would rather play it safe. nothing major just elbow inflammation and a wrist i dislocated during comp prep but didn't get to treat properly as there was no chance i was having 3 weeks minimum no weights at 5 weeks out from comp.
-
i'm not sharing this to appear "hard" or "cool" but to show if you want something bad enough you will find a way.
