Highlights from today's biceps & triceps session.
•Regular changes in your workout are essential for long term growth. Cycle your workout continuously, change your exercises and add different training techniques. •Someone who does the same activity all the time is likely to plateau much sooner than someone who varies their workouts. Just as you can get bored by always doing the same exercises, your body can also adapt to these exercises so that they don't offer the same benefits that they once did. A little variety might be just the thing you need to get the scale moving again or bust through that strength plateau. "Variety" means either changing something about your current routine (adding speed, distance, hills, resistance, etc.) or trying a totally different activity. If you like some consistency and don't want to change your workout each time you hit the gym, change your routine at least every 4-8 weeks (this includes incorporating changes to both your cardio and strength training exercises). This will keep your muscles challenged, your body guessing, and the results coming!
Biceps & triceps highlights from yesterday.

Highlights from yesterday's arm session. Super set, 45lb dumbbell curls into 10lb dumbbell curls with a one second pause (squeeze) at the top then focus on the rep coming back down slowly. Everything to rep failure.
Cooked spinach benefits: When you eat spinach that has been heated, you will absorb higher levels of vitamins A and E, protein, fiber, zinc, thiamin, calcium, and iron. Important carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, also become more absorbable.
One hand full of spinach & Farmed Salmon (fillet) as shown in this clip. (I season my spinach with a dash of black pepper & powdered garlic)
Let's be realistic here. You won't drop two jean sizes in one day. You won't lose 50 pounds in one month. You're going to binge every now and then. You will go a day or two without working out. Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there. You're going to try new techniques, and there not going to work. You're a human being. You're going to fail. But nothing great is ever accomplished without a few obstacles.

Smoothie contains: Frozen mango chunks, strawberries, banana, black berries (not shown in picture), a handful of baby spinach & cocoanut water.
•As you are aware, consuming healthy smoothies is beneficial for a number of reasons. This habit has personally helped me tremendously on my own journey to better health.
If you are waiting for a sign, this is it. "Somehow we've come to believe that greatness is only for the chosen few, for the superstars. The truth is, greatness is for us all. This is not about lowering expectations; it's about raising them for every last one of us. Greatness is not in one special place, and it's not in one special person. Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it.
Back day highlights. Decided to change things up and visit another gym with my swolemate @ionianv . Do not be afraid to change up the routine! Even if that means checking out another gym.
•You're right. It is easier to eat pizza then to run on the treadmill. It's easier to turn to ice cream rather then people for supporters. It's easier to say "f*** it, I give up" then to say "f*** this, I can do it". So you know what? I'm not going to sit here and tell you day after day you can do this. If you don't believe you can, then you can't. That's the honest truth. You need to do this for you. And if you don't want it enough, then you sure as hell won't achieve it. So take the easy way out and remain unhealthy and continue to gain weight because you can't realize you are the only one hurting yourself. I didn't say it would be easy. I said it would be worth it.
•Here is my very first official calf transformation/progression pic. This September I will make just about over 4 years of consistent training, and for me training legs was out of the question until I began seeing progress on my upper half. One thing I realized over these past few years training is that what may work for someone else, will not work for me, and what works for me may not work for you. Everybody is different, all this talk about lifting big to get big bs, that you can't get big lifting light/moderate weight. I am telling you that's a load of shit. In this lifestyle it's a lot of experimenting, trying out new techniques, eating differently. I came from being skinny, and I ain't get to where I am now by doing the same thing. I am still learning day by day, I don't have all the answers, but what I do have is all the knowledge that got me to where I am now. Find what works for you, and when you do stick to it and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.
Highlights from today's training session.
•I felt more then 100% today, I feel I am building up my strength really well especially after dislocating my right shoulder. I took my time and after every set of dumbbell incline presses I watched the clock and rested for a exactly a minute then jumped right into another set. Six sets in total, 40lb dumbbells up to 80lbs drop set straight back into those 40lb dumbbells.
•Instead of jogging on no level of incline, challenge yourself, and try jogging on the highest level as shown in the last clip of the vid.
