  • Kickbacks to target glute max vs. glute meds with @mela.n.t! (Swipe left) 🍑
•
First is the way to target your glute max that @mela.n.t showed me today which I have a hard time growing. Found this to be really effective!
-
(Excuse my hop I was a little too close to the bar lol) As I’m kicking back, I’m focused on keeping my hips as square as possible, my foot as neutral as possible and keeping my back leg very close to my stabilizing leg (almost a slight cross over). I’m also coming forward to start each kick so there’s a larger range of motion. This will hit your glute max (right under your butt). Naturally I tend to turn outwards so this is still a work in progress!
•
Second clip is @mela.n.t targeting the opposite (glute meds)!
-
She is doing a slight outwards turn of her foot, opening her hips more throughout each kick while keeping a straighter leg, to focus on squeezing the top of the glute during the exercise. There is also a smaller range of motion to keep tension on the glute meds (especially if you can’t activate them as easily which is the opposite for me). This will help grow the side portion of your glutes!
  • In a bulk currently... which means time to grow the gluuttess (and the entire rest of my body lol)👊🏻💪🏻 Posted a full day of eating on my story so check it out!
-
current macros are 155p/370c/60f at 6 weeks into a reverse and I’ve only gained 3lbs.. which is pretty hard to believe. I’m also eating pretty much the same macros I was eating at the peak of my last bulk where I was over 10lbs heavier than I am now. 🙊
-
I post my macros because I want to negate the fear of eating, and also showing the importance of a reverse diet (even though I didn’t get stage lean!) Please nobody compare your macros to mine, everybody is different and what works for me might not work for you. Instead, opt for what is best for your body which can be done through proper knowledge/guidance, and in all honesty, a lot of trial and error. TRUST THE PROCESS.
  • Last night at the @inside_fitness with my love ❤️ had to document the rare occasion where we both aren’t in gym clothes 😂
  • “Instead of striving for certainty, we should be in constant search of doubt: doubt about our own beliefs, doubt about our own feelings, doubt about what the future may hold for us unless we get out there and create it for ourselves. Instead of looking to be right all the time, we should be looking for how we’re wrong all the time. Because we are.”

  • Goals for 2018? I see New Years less as a “new start” but more as a reminder to continue towards a better life. So here they are (as listed on my story):
⤵️
•
-  to continue to live with intent. this means no wasted time, no wasted energy, and continual growth both mentally and physically.
•
- mentally meaning continued character growth. growing through my experiences, including some significant changes i will be facing in the next few months.
•
- physically this means muscle growth, ALOT of it. Intentional training. AND getting comfortable with an offseason look. Hoping to compete at the end of 2018.
•
- and lastly, continual focus on giving what i have to offer to others. At the end of the day... I’m fulfilled and happy with exactly what i have in this moment, i don’t need anything else. So that’s all that really matters to me.
❤️
  • A bit of a similar pic, but different post. ⤵️

I hope over the holidays you had the opportunity to spend the time with people you love. Whether that be friends, family or a significant other. Yes we can worry about our diets or our bodies or whether or not we “indulged” too much, but this should come as a second priority to worrying as to whether or not we had the opportunity to show those we love that we love them.
-
Food will come and go, our bodies and abilities will change with time. I get the anxieties as well but the way I surpass them is by looking at what surrounded those variables. Which to me, was family. Those that truly love us are there to stay. Don’t ever lose sight of what’s truly important. ❤️
-
Happy holidays everyone from my whole heart to yours!
  • WELL the holidays may be over, but I will forever have a sweet tooth. 🍪 anyone with me? 😊
-
Here are two different macro friendly cupcakes I made (sugar free and low carb) with my @MuscleTech NitroTech Whey. First is with cookies and cream and second is french vanilla creme, and I loved both 😍😍😍
-
To make these, I used pumpkin purée, sugar free applesauce, whey protein, coconut flour, liquid stevia and baking soda, and vanilla extract. Mixed to a thick consistency and put in the oven to bake. The icing is made of Greek yogurt and sugar free vanilla jello mix. Topped with cinnamon ❤️
