Leg day = ugly butt squeezes and complete concentration! Weight lifting is much more than moving the weight…It requires full mental capacity and clarity. Many of us fail to do this when working out. Don’t underestimate the power of your mind, especially when it comes to weight lifting. Often times, we neglect mind muscle connection to certain muscles. This leads to imbalances and/or underdevelopment of that muscle. This is when the mind muscle connection becomes important. At the end of the day, you should be seriously committed to feeling each rep in the primary muscle that you intend to work.

The day @finaflex contacted me was the day I finally felt that my dreams could actually become my reality. That belief is going to propel me forward to achieving my vision. Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. I see SO many people settling for a life they do not love. Just think about crazy that is. Life is too fragile and short to do anything but follow YOUR dreams. Remember ALL things are possible for those who believe.
Still shot of my 200 in the hole. Video shows it was a tad above 90, but those who watched it irl said it was perfectly at 90.
I'm still gonna say I'm damn proud because I haven't PR'd on squats since April. And that was 195, and I fought hard af in the hole, and it was also way above 90 as well.
I'm proud to see progress in my squats, because for a long while, they struggled really bad.
Diamond push-ups or triangle push ups!! My face says it all!! This was my 4 set of performing these closer to the end of my workout session.
Usually do about 3-4 sets - 15 reps
Usually I try to do these on arm days instead of chest because they primarily are focused on working your triceps.
Whatever you want to call these, these are a harder and a different variation of push ups that require good technique to perform but also are very beneficial at the same time.
They are a lot harder to perform as you it involves more than one body, as in - Having your core tight and not slouching down so it won’t hurt your vertebra. - Hands formed into a diamond under your chest, not pushed too far in or out.
- Shoulders pulled back to get extension.
Usually if you are having a hard time performing these or just starting out, you could just be on all fours and keep your knees on the ground and just focus on getting the form right and slowly moving into higher reps and full form once you have them down.
