Fortnightly Deadlift update😂 Starting to increase the weight with added volume (sets & reps) with much better form than a month ago. Need to invest in a decent weight belt and chalk while adding more volume and weight in the coming weeks #deadlifts #gym #fit#fit #instafit #fit #bodybuilding #powerlifting #strength #gains #fatloss #wor#workout #exercise #fitfood #mealprep #fitnesslifestyle #leanmuscle #squats #workout #shredded #pt #health #diet #mealplan

In order to make progress in your training, you need to increase the amount of stimulus you give your body. - This principle is known as PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD. - The name isn’t particularly important, but what is important is understanding that your body is clever and will adapt to the stress you put on it. - Here are a five ways you can apply this principle and progress in your training: - 1. Increase the weight lifted. If you are performing sets at 40kg, increase the weight in your next session to 45kg, even if only for one or two sets. - 2. Increase the volume. If you are performing 3 sets of 10 reps often, try working towards 4 sets of 12 reps. - 3. Decrease your rest times. If you are used to resting 90 seconds between your working sets, decrease that to 60 or 75 seconds. - 4. Control the tempo. This one is often overlooked. When performing the downward / lowering phase of a lift, perform this at a slower pace than usual. If you usually perform a two second downward phase, up this to 3 or 4 seconds! - 5. Vary the exercise. If you perform squats on a frequent basis, why not switch this to a split squat or lunge variation? Even if used as a short term change this can be enough to provide a new stimulus on the body and keep you progressing in your training. - If you feel that your training has hit a plateau, look at these five variables and make a change! ——————————— #TeamFortitude | #IJLFitness | #PersonalTraining | #Strength | #FatLoss | #Coaching

So at Bagels today for the First In Family's regular dose of #carbsandconversation it was brought to my attention that there are actually people who believe I don't eat bagels. . That there's simply no way you could possibly be lean AND enjoy food. . So I figured I'd attempt to dispell the myths once and for all with a little demonstration of just how much I love my bagels!😋 . If it looks familiar it's because the combo from last week with the fudge brownie protein powder and Hershey's cookies and cream candy bar from Halloween was so dang good I had to do it again!😍 . @firstinnutrition . . . . . #firstinnutrition #firstinfamily #iamfirstin #areyoureadytobefirstin #fitforduty #fueledforlife #fit#fitfam #measureandmanage #bettereveryday #fitfam #gai#gainz #fitstagram #fitness #fitnessmotivation #bodybuilding #muscle #fatloss #reversediet #ifitfitsyourmacros #gymlife #aesthetics #shredded #ripped #abs #gainz #swole #athletics #protein #bagel #bagels #chocolate

💪🏼Physique update 203.4lbs this morning which is nearly 8lbs down in 18 days. Calories have been kept the same with 2 extra cardio sessions (total of 4) added to the week of training. Feeling as focused as ever again as I see the changes with the body fat slowly coming off. #bodybuilding #mondaymotivation #physique #progress #teamslackfit
