When should you change your workout routine? 😬 you've gotta shock de muscle... Right babe?⬇ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nope... Unfortunately for natural lifters 'shocking the muscle' Arnold's classic line doesn't really work... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The way to improve is progressive overload and this can't be done if you are changing your routine every week! 🚫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However there is sometimes a point when a change can be beneficial... For example I was on a Push/Pull/Legs routine for around 1 and a half years 😱
I realised I had certain body parts that needed more work than others so... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I changed to a Chest+Back/arms+shoulders/legs routine and this was very helpful in building my arms which gave grown a lot in the last few months! 🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why am I cheesin so big?!😃 Because I freaking love my job!!! Everyday I get to wake up and be excited about the work I’m doing and how it’s helping me, my family and those that have joined my team and my groups!
I also got these messages that just once again affirmed I am on the right path: “I was hoping to be down 30 pounds by my birthday but missed it by a day. This morning I have lost 30 pounds. 🎉 You have been such a fantastic remodel during this process. I also love that I am learning to love the body I have. I am working on fully loving it but it's a work in progress.” “For the first time ever I just bought a shirt that says small!” Working with incredible women everyday and helping them find their confidence through fitness is a dream come true for me!
So one question:
ARE YOU READY TO JOIN ME?!🤔🤷🏼♀️
The buttress of our physiques- LEGS
What is a buttress? A name my dad used to call my mum when I was younger 🙄 but in all seriousness
It's the solid foundation of something that offers great support.
Training the lower body releases numerous hormones, that have high volumes of Natural Growth hormones. No you won't get massive, but you will build more muscle tissue, which in turn, believe it or not burns more FAT! 🔥which is a win win. The more muscle mass you have, the less body fat you will have. Do not skip leg day whatever your age, gender, ability, injuries(work around)
