🔥CLIENT SPOTLIGHT🔥 goes out to one of the hardest working individuals I know @aces_artillery. I'll just leave his story below, great fukin work my dude😤😤
On the left I was about 280lbs in January, on the right I’m currently 195lbs and it’s now November. My first goal was to hit 225 before thanksgiving...well let’s say I went above and beyond that lol 😁 people tend to think that there is an easier way to lose weight and it’s not. I def would have found it by now. Dedication is key, my motivation was the finish line and to be able to say.....YOU WASNT WITH ME LIFTING IN THE GYM. I don’t know about luck, Hard work is all I know. #dedication#motivation#looseskin#bodybuilding#bodytransformation#powerlifter#diet#fitfam#journey

“but it’s not fair”
who told you life would be fair— books? tv? people who portray themselves as having perfect, mishap-void lives? ——
it’s easy to affix blame externally when things go awry, reluctant to acknowledge our shortcomings in favor of preserving a sense of self which is more than likely distorted.
as such, it’s crucial to acknowledge the possibility that maybe, just maybe, you AREN’T doing all you can to achieve a certain result; are you really, truly giving it your all, or are you just telling yourself you are? have you been doing so consistently? ——
if the answer to those questions is “no,” then it’s more than likely that pointing the finger at a skewed perception of fairness is a scapegoat for a larger problem.
if this applies to you, it’s time to start taking responsibility for what happens in your life.
initiate responses instead of reactions.
be better than the lies you tell yourself for comfort. and avoid complacency like it’s your JOB.

When lifting it's important to engage the target muscle correctly. ❌ Here you can see that in the left picture power and efficiency are being lost in the movement. ✅ On the right the glutes are fully engaged and utilizing the muscle fibers efficiently! Overtime this will not only help you build your glutes it will also make you more efficient and stronger in your compound lifts like squats and deadlift for example!
How to burn more calories 🧐🔥
You can enter a deficit by eating less (calories in), burning more (calories out), or a combination of both. When it comes to energy expenditure there are a bunch of factors that make up our total - basal metabolic rate (BMR), thermic effect of food (TEF), non exercise activity thermogenesis(NEAT), exercise activity thermogenesis (EAT), and excess post- exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). Here are some ways to increase these factors:
1. BMR - build more muscle mass
2. TEF - choose whole unrefined foods which require more calories to digest and breakdown
3. NEAT - walk more, choose to stand and not sit
4. EAT - train harder!
5. EPOC - a very small amount but a nice bonus when you’re training hard, you can up your EPOC by increasing your intensity, decreasing your rest times, etc.
