Nelson Mandela said he never lost. He said he either won or learnt.
I love that.
This week I physically failed to do something pretty straightforward and it knocked me off guard. Like completely. Shitty shite FML stuff.
When we take a knock to the confidence, we need to process it (for sure), but also smartly tune back into the ultimate goal - of getting back to who we are and to the process of always positively building our confidence by checking in with ourselves, staying in the game (quitting is the immediate, easy response, right, when it all goes wrong!?), reframing our shitty cry-in-the-car setbacks as opportunities, and remembering that beautiful paradox: that by taking a risk and pushing ourselves (and, of course, our confidence), we ultimately and fundamentally nourish our own life-changing growth even if we don’t ‘succeed’ and especially when it feels anything but positive. (I’m still processing 😭🤣) Forwards not back. Always . . .
#Teamwork makes the dream work ✨ A few weeks ago I got the opportunity to face my fear of heights at @brooklynzoony parkour obstacle course: I’m talking trampolines, tumbling, warp walls, high jumps into a foam pit - a total Ninja Warrior experience! And to top it off, Adidas gifted us all amazing comfortable matching #WarpKnit leggings and tops to train in! Always have so much fun with #teamadidas 💪🏼💥 #adidaswomen

➡️it’s max week🎉🎉 this is the week I test my maxes and see how I’ve improved in the last 3-4 months. The lifts we are testing this week are:
Overhead press ——————————————————————
Today I just tested my back squat and it went up by 10lbs! I maxed at 270lb Super pumped on my way to a 300lb squat.
This is all thanks to @fitnessculturetraining they have the best programs if you follow the programs in the way they are intended you get results.
What’s holding you back from results? Is it the program? Your motivation, work drive, effort or how hard you push yourself?

Light weights at higher reps condition your muscular endurance and help induce cellular/metabolic adaptations. In short, higher rep ranges that normally require lighter weight help build mitochondrial density and increased capillary density in working muscles.
Tone is a myth. The most toned muscles are strong muscles. You can achieve good hypertrophy anywhere from 4-12 reps. Lower rep ranges will create more myofibrillar hypertrophy while higher ranges will create more sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. You'll see a lot of bodybuilders for instance train at higher rep ranges like 10-12 rep sets and are not really considered that strong for their size.
Personally, for bodybuilding I would prefer an 8-10 rep range on sets simply because anything less requires greater recovery times and anything higher I tend to lose focus. Just my opinion though.🔥💪🏽
I am brave. I am bruised. This who I’m meant to be. This is me! •
I’m okay with saying that I’m not perfect and far from it, but I’m working on myself to be the person I want to be accepting my flaws and being perfectly imperfect BUT HAPPY! That is my only goal in life ❤️
