GARLIC FRIES BEFORE GUYS 🙌🏻🍟 Currently counting down the days to the long weekend so I can get myself back down to @hwkr_mrkt for some @grumpypandafood vegan garlic fries 😍 .
Bloody love @hwkr_mrkt and these were the perfect mid-session snack. Resisted the deep fried Oreos this time but I’m not making any promises this weekend! Fries were full of flavour and so mouth watering I could have smashed another portion.... but that was probably because I was 4 pints deep from @bytheriverbrewco 🙊 ...
You can’t rush progress but you can optimise it
For novice trainers progress can be staggeringly quick just by making some simple changes
Unfortunately those newbie gains don’t last forever, so make the most of them whilst they are there
The truth is the higher up the ladder of advancement the more painstakingly slow progression occurs. And you often have to refine and put in extra effort to get just a little back
That doesn’t sound too sexy but that’s how it works. It takes time, consistency and dedication...
The 3 biggest tips I can give for all levels but especially those who are looking to reap progress at a more intermediate level:
1. LOG YOUR WORKOUTS: if you don’t measure progress then you are guessing. What did you lift last week and what do you need to do to beat it. This serves as great motivation and accountability -
2. Take small wins: 2kg extra on the bar or an extra rep is money in the bank. Add to this every week and you will build yourself a small fortune over time 💰 -
3. Stick to the plan: have a structure. This doesn’t mean a 5 year plan but it does mean sticking to a routine for a long enough time to see progression. Adhering to rest days and scheduled deloads allow you to push harder for longer
Squatting for reps and sets what my 1 rep max was only 5 months ago 💪🏻 ...
