feeling kind of stuck with the type of content I want to put out. I don’t want to post photos just for the sake of posting because that isn’t helpful to anyone. I have so many ideas for different challenges, guides and other things but I really want to finish my nasm degree before focusing on that. I’ve been studying really hard and I have my test on June 1st 🎉 I really really want to be properly educated before releasing any products. I bought some ‘guides’ that were literally just a bro split training plan with 4x8-12 for every exercise. That’s not helpful to anyone. What I want to focus on is quality and actually helping people over making a quick buck.
Ok, rant done 🌈 Thank you if you made it to the end, I really appreciate all of the support I get through this community 💞💞💞

WEIGHTLIFTING 🏋️ might not be what you want!!
working out is not all about beautiful muscle separation(➕) beautiful body line(➕) feeling energetic all the time(➕) plus plus ➕ ➕➕,,,, those sour uncles/ppl are right when they say when we grow old n stop lifting, we will flatten! That's true, that's law of nature! , because to have the ➕, you need to have discipline(➖) to follow through your workout, and if you want more, you gotta sacrifice(➖) your day to day urge to enjoy certain food. You need to spend time(➖) /money(➖) /energy(➖)
LIFTING is an activity where one sacrifices time ➖and VOLUNTARILY induces PAIN➖ to physical body parts to achieve body goals➕ he/she wants! The intensity of pain gets pretty extreme⚠️⚠️⚠️ and your DNA must like it to able to sustain!!
Being healthy is a good direction, but to lift weights just because you want to look like someone else. That's not self-love. listen to your DNA, maybe you want to swim, run, cycle, or higher intensity like sprinting, cross fit? (Crossfit is too tough for me, RESPECT to all the crossfitters 💪💪💪) Really listen to your body, your body will tell you what kind of tempo it wants ☺️
After listening to your dms I figured many people want to be healthy but chose the wrong main activity~~~

👌 Exercise Benefits
The Body Saw is an exercise for building core strength and stability.
You can use a variety of different implements including the following:

The Body Saw is also a conservative exercise on the spine when performed correctly and includes added engagement out of the serratus anterior (more on why this is important in a later post).
This is a progression from the traditional plank, so be sure to be proficient at the plank first.

Squeeze your glutes and brace your abs, maintaining your alignment throughout the movement.
2️⃣ Moving through your shoulders, slide forward and backward in a controlled manner.

Accountability post. Week 1. ✔️
I have been amazed at how hard it has been to go back to the gym. I’ve been needing an extra boost and something to hold me accountable so a friend suggested using my social media to do just that. So here I am giving it a try. I’m so excited to attempt to reach my fitness goals and share my journey as I go!
FRIENDS!! Omg I’ve been MIA all weekend and I’m sure you’ve missed me! 🤣 But I’ve been a busy bee!
My mom has been in town and she has been helping us paint and redo our [ugly] kitchen! It’s been quite the project and it’s still not finished, but so far I’m LOVING it.
She heads back home tomorrow, so my life kinda goes back to normal. I need routine, anyone else?
The kitchen will be done soon-ish... wanna see the finished product??
