💀DEADLIFTS FOR BACK THICKNESS💀
One of the best exercises to build a thick back. I know everyone wants to be form police and tear this apart but I execute this lift with the intent to feel it in my back and it works for me. As long as you aren’t hurting yourself find the form that best targets what you’re trying to hit. 👍 If you are training for strength on the other then disregard everything I just said 😜
#tbt because I used to love doing leg days. Now I go at them twice a week and dread every second of it. But hey, i’m seeing progress so I can’t complain. On another note, first time having stretch marks on my thighs and butt cheeks (no homo) so i’m seeing gains 😂
How much water should you be drinking a day? Atleast 3 liters(101.422 ounces) to be exact.
What does this do for you may you ask? Water serves several crucial purposes in the body including:
• Transporting substances around the body
• Delivering nutrients to the cells
• Carrying waste products away from the cells
Now that we got the nerdy stuff out of the way, here is what the proper amount of water can do for you:
1. Eliminate dehydration so that you can think, focus, and perform at your best.
2. Keep you full so that you don’t overeat.
3. Lubricates the joints and muscles so that you don’t cramp.
4. Boosts skin health.
5. A big factor in contributing to your digestive health.
6. Makes you pee a lot(all jokes aside this is very true, but it’s so worth it for the other benefits).
What I do to make sure I get my water in each day is full up a gallon and drink that throughout the day. I’ve also used a 32oz insulated water bottle and filled that up 3-4 times a day.
So yeah, DRINK YOUR WATER PEOPLE! Your body will love you for it 💧

The little things in life add up to be the difference between winning it and losing it. The little things, attention to detail.
• First time using the Graston Technique, will definitely be returning and be a consistent tool along my path. Followed with cryotherapy as well today 💪🏼
I thought it would be cool to start a weekly #ClassicRewind 🎞 post showing some great competitors of the Golden Age. Here’s Arnold’s competition span from the 1970-1975 Olympia’s. As you can probably see his physique altered to a degree over each competition.
Which year do you personally think he looked best? ☝️💪 #ArnoldSchwarzenegger#MrOlympia

Welcome Jules 🦁
Gonna keep it real, I’ve been scraping the bottom of the barrel for motivation this prep. Bodybuilding is something you do 100% for yourself but by yourself, can become somewhat monotonous. Thus, posting random training everyday.
Don’t get me wrong, I fkn love it. All I mean is not being surrounded by people who train or diet purposely, or even care about the constituents of prep for that matter, can cause external motivation to be low.
So in conjunction with complaining, I put together a low quality, poorly edited compilation of the past 5 years of training (all lifts, posing vids just make me wanna eat a carrot). No, it’s not some form of self-worship. Just a reminder.
I never stepped foot inside a gym until my 20’s & it was actually @codytimmons3 who made me my first training split. My only strength goal at the time was to bench 2 plates; an ambitious beginning.
It wasn’t for another 2 years before I “discovered” powerlifting. I think it was the combination of small victories & camaraderie that drew me in. It took precedence over bodybuilding for years & never once committed to a meet.
Looking back, no regrets. Terrible form led me to some muscular imbalances (big traps, small arms/big quads & erectors, small hams & glutes) but it helped me build a base to work from.
I digress. This was a fun afternoon project & going through about 32 vids had me feeling pretty hype & kinda weak 😂 saved a special memory for the end. Back to work. Redemption on my mind. Yadda yadda. #tbt#11weeksout
Some people never believe in their capability to achieve a physique... -KNOW WHY? -because everybody is so used to instant gratification, building a physique is one of the things in life you can’t buy or pay someone to build for you. ITS ALL ON YOU. Me and many others are here to provide knowledge but you gotta be able to stay consistent & utilize it!
Stiff Legged Deadlifts Using Assisted Deadlift Machine
This a unique variation to the traditional Barbell Stiff Legged Deadlift. Just like the traditional one, it mainly targets the hamstrings and glutes.
- If you have trouble with the other variations, I highly recommend giving this a try!
How to Perform Stiff Legged Deadlift
- •Have your legs no wider than shoulder width stance with a slight bend at the knees
- •Keeping your back straight, lower the weight to where you stretch your hamstrings. - •Keeping your feet grounded pushing mainly with your heels, bring the weight back up, squeezing your glutes. Remember to keep your back straight. -
Tips: - •If your new to this exercise I recommend starting light then gradually increase as you feel necessary.
- •When your bringing the weight up, you feel tension on the hamstring while going through the movement. - •I recommend trying: -
Sets: (4-5) Reps: (12,12,10,10,8)

It’s not entirely a size game. Symmetry, proportion, flow, and lines... the details make it complete.
Attention to detail becomes critical. You don’t just train and hope you look a certain way. You train with a vision in mind.
The body becomes a physical manifestation of the mind.
The painting isn’t only determined by the number of brush strokes but the length of the strokes, the types of brushes used, the colors and their contaminates, but most of all the mind of the one painting the canvas with no audience.
