I'm guilty of mainly posting things of me #killingit so here's me #struggling The truth is we're not going to wake up every day feeling 100% mentally and physically strong. Yesterday I struggled on absolutely everything in the gym and straight away I started getting frustrated with myself and the self compassion I preach to others and to myself went out the window. So I did what I always do and went to my texts from my mom (she loves to send on life quotes) and found this gem 'the ego wants what it doesn't have, the soul knows what it has and feels #gratitude#grateful#selfcompassion#motivation#quotes#thestruggleisreal#humpday
Finished my second deload session with 3sets of 5 x160 kg pause #squat 3x5x120 pause #bench 3x5x230 kg #deadlift 3x5x65 kg #ohp 3x8 #chinups Estimated rpe 6. Again no booster, no loud music, no screaming. Just me, the weights and the powercast. I am really enjoying this recovery phase as the past weeks have been mentally and physically exhausting. @peakperformanceproducts

#31daysofchinupsandpullups Day 17! Hollow body holds are awesome for increasing core strength and learning how to create full body tension both of which are super important for chin-ups and pull-ups (push-ups too). 🔹 But jumping immediately to the "full" position - arms and legs straight out - is usually really, really difficult, especially if they're brand new to you. 🔹 The first position in the video is the standard, full hold. Try the second position first: bent knees, shoulders off the floor, low back pressed into the floor and abs tight. 🔹 Can you hold the bent knee position for at least 30 seconds? More progressions to help you build up to the full hollow hold coming your way tomorrow!
[Chin Up Consistency Challenge] . Ladders are a great way to build volume and get you doing more consecutive reps. . How to: do one chin up, rest 30s, do 2 chin ups, rest 30s, and so on until you can't do anymore in a row. I gassed out quickly and worked my way up to 3. You could also do these assisted if you can't do many bodyweight yet. . If you're feeling feisty, work your way back down to one. . Rest 2 minutes between sets and aim for 3-4 sets. . Try it and let me know what you think! #chinup#chinups#back#pullup#beDEVOTED#devotedfitness
"I could never do that!" I hear this all the time. But it's not true! You just have to start small and take baby steps. It's all about being consistent and pushing yourself a little further each time until eventually one day it will just click and what you thought was impossible will become easy for you! Stop telling yourself you can't. Believe in yourself. Start small. Be consistent. Do the work. NEVER SETTLE! ✌🏻💖💪🏻
Eccentric Bi's slow extension gets you sore real fast😵 After those three eccentric chin-ups I went and got a box bc I needed help getting myself up. I recommend having one close by 💀💀 It's ok to help the weight up on the curls the focus is all on the extension so pick a weight that's a bit heavy for you and use your other arm to help it up. #FAITHfullyFIT
DAY 17 Workout: free online at home bodyweight Feeling: felt like a slow moving freight train. from "blergh" to "okay" to "woo woo!" . . . . . Description: Rolled over, turned on YouTube and looked up workouts. Started out barely participating, just kind of copying the motions happily lackadaisically.😏😏 ......20 minutes later, had to open all the windows to cool off. 37 degrees out and it wasn't enough! 😅😅🔥💪🏻 it made me want to start each day with some movement. Go slow and 🚂🚂🚂build momentum, like a 🚂🚂🚂🚂! . #tonyhorton#tonyhortonlive#bodyweight#athomeoworkout#calisthenics#ripped#endorphins#pushups#chinups#p90x
