Y'all know I love to travel. I think there is nothing more humbling and out of comfort zone than stepping off an airplane and not knowing how to speak or read the primary language. I really believe that travel is the greatest educator in the self, in friendship, and in life experience. Where are you dreaming of for 2019?
For me, one of the fun parts of travel is the pre-travel planning - how to get to where I want to go, what to see, how to get there, where to stay, where to eat, all of it! I've used the @expedia app to help plan my trips; my most recent booking was the mini van to cart of all us around Joshua Tree. This trip was a really special birthday trip that I'm actually thinking of doing yearly. Travel + friendship + photography are what keep me going, and this photo of @gesticulate is the perfect example of everything I love. Looking through my JT photos, I'm already having travel wanderlust and actually looked through all the last minute deals and photos on the Expedia app and wondering if i can sneak a trip in before the end of the year 😂😂😂 On December 13, the app will launch exclusive coupons with $100 off selected flights and 90% off selected hotel bookings - you best be sure I will be browsing the app on December 13! And check it out for yourself, especially if you are thinking of a getaway! The link to download the app is in my bio. Even though this is an #ad, please know I only promote services and products I actually use. #Expedia#HitReset

How are you? Already waiting for warm spring and simmering summer? But let's enjoy the chilliness when it's available because we might miss it when it gets hot and muggy. ~
➖Glutes training began 3 years ago. I see much progress. 💪😄 ~
➖I had heart function tests this week. Below are the findings and some take-out message. ~
➖I've been feeling very happy realizing the true meaning of POSITIVITY, NOT COMPARING UPWARD OR WITH OTHERS BUT APPRECIATING WHAT I HAVE AND REALIZING SOMETHING BAD (IF ANY) COULD HAVE GONE WORSE SO STILL APPRECIATING SOMETHING BAD THAT HAPPENED. I'm grateful that my mind feels calm and very happy... I HOPE YOU CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY. ~
🔶2 heart tests performed🔶
➡EXERCISE STRESS TEST & ECHO TEST. ~
🔶MET (my level: 15-18) & Vo2 Max (my level: 55)🔶
➡MET (Metabolic Equivalents of Task) for exercises. Measured this week.
➡Vo2 Max: measured 3 years. ~
🔶Exercise Intensity & Duration🔶~
➡After the 2 heart tests, I asked the doctor if it came out normal. The doctor said, "don't worry about shortness of breath. Not just normal but it's PERFECT. Top of the Top!" and said "you could continue to push yourself on the machines!" It answered my question of whether I should reduce the duration and intensity. ~
Till 6 years ago (2012) I did a long fast cardio only. Then I started weights training and gradually increased the intensity and duration. I started experiencing shortness of breath and saw a pulmonologist (lung doctor) 3 years ago. He tested my Vo2 Max. It came out excellent (55), "perhaps close to that of the olympic women cyclists." ~
Now I'm very happy knowing my lung and heart are functioning very healthy. I can enjoy gym exercises as much as I could push my limits. The results of Vo2 Max from lung capacity test and Met level from heart function test motivate my continued exercise efforts. I recommend that you do these tests and figure out where you stand and improve the levels! 🙌💪🙋

HOLA DESPUÉS DE MUCHOS DÍAS de no publicar!!!!!👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼Hoy he decidido despedir esta semana flipante y dar la bienvenida a la semana que entra, contandoos "QUÉ ES EXACTAMENTE LO QUE HAGO"...
[email protected] me habeis comentado: "te vemos que te mueves mas que los precios 〰️〰️〰️y que TODO LO QUE HACES ES SOBRE ENTRENAMIENTO 🏋🏻♀️💪🏽pero no sabemos exactamente cual es tu especialidad ni que es concretamente en lo que andas metida"...
Os adelanto que lo mas importante de todo ello es lo que en el párrafo anterior esta en MAYUSCULAS ...🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Esta semana os lo contaré en algunas en publis de forma detallada: cosa por cosa, para no liaros el coco🥥!!!!! .
Lo que tienen en común TODAS LAS COSAS QUE HAGO EN MI DÍA A DÍA, es que parten de múltiples vertientes del entrenamiento funcional. ESE ES EL DENOMINADOR COMÚN DE TODAS Y CADA UNA DE ELLAS...!!!!! .
Para mi TODAS se complementan perfectamente porque mi objetivo es ser cada día un entrenador más completo, desde múltiples puntos de vista, para poder ayudaros de forma mas eficaz (y egoístamente MUCHO MAS ENRIQUECEDORA TAMBIEN PARA MI)... es lo que en algunas ocasiones he llamado mi ALTRUISMO EGOISTA.
No es cuestión de ego, sino de que aprendiendo SIEMPRE y transmitiéndoos todo lo que puedo me siento tan jodidamente bien cada noche cuando llego a mi casa, que no creo q haya droga mas dura q esta. .
Empezaré la semana, de todas formas, con un paréntesis para hablaros del @campus_old_school_training donde he estado estos ultimos 4 días, porque merece una publicación por si solo🙏🏽🙌🏽...
Así os actualizo y tambien entendereis PORQUE he ido y a hacer QUÉ!
Feliz noche de domingo...!!!
TONELADAS DE ENERGÍA PARA LA NUEVA SEMANA EN LA QUE ME HAGO UN AÑO MAS SABIA... y atentos porque os voy a contar muuuchas cosas interesantes!
Creatine is one of the most popular nutritional ergogenic aids for athletes. Creatine monohydrate has been shown to increase exercise capacity in adolescents, younger adults, and older individuals leading to increased strength, muscle mass, and performance.. It is a naturally found in some foods such as red meat and seafood. 95% of the creatine in our body is found in skeletal muscle with 5% in the brain and testes. In order to maintain normal, unsupplemented creatine stores, 1-3g need to be replenished each day. Generally, 1-2g of this coming from diet and the remaining being produced by the liver and kidneys. 🤓
Why supplement? 🤔 Normal creatine stores are usually only 60-80% saturated without supplementation, but creatine stores must be fully saturated to see the greatest improvements in performance. Vegetarians have also been shown to have lower intramuscular creatine stores.
How can it help gym performance? 💪🏼 Creatine combines with a phosphorylation group in the body to form phosphocreatine. When we breakdown ATP for energy into ADP and inorganic phosphate, the breakdown of phosphocreatine can be used to quickly produce more ATP.
Type: Creatine monohydrate is the form that has been studied thoroughly. There isn’t much evidence on other forms of creatine and their potential benefits. 👍🏼
Dosing: Take 5g, 4x per day for 5-7 days to fully saturate stores followed by a maintenance dose of 5g/day OR just take 5g/day and eventually your stores will be fully saturated. 👌🏼
Safety: Over 1000 studies have been done and the only consistently reported side effect has been weight gain (probably due to increases in water retention and muscle mass). Both short/long term studies in both healthy/diseased populations, ranging from infants-elderly at doses as high as 0.8 g/kg for up to 5 YEARS have shown no adverse health risks, including renal dysfunction. 😎
If you’re somebody spending money on supplements to improve performance and body composition, pure creatine monohydrate is by far the most reliable supplement you can get your hands on. 🙌🏼
Down to 3 blocks for trap bar block pulls, cranking out 10 reps with 230kg 👊 with the festive season I'll be a lil less consistent with training (there's a whole world outside the gym, who knew?), so might not have a nice round finish to this wee block of trap bar deadlifts - however, looking at the height of the top handles (when loaded bar is on floor) there's not too much difference between it and the bottom handles from two blocks high, so if nothing else I should be able to get some kind of final trap bar lifting before the year is out, whether it's weight or reps 😄 from January 2019 I'll be moving to maintenance for the lower body to preserve some strength during the cardio work for the Ironman in July - as much as I'd like to build both, my cardio isn't where I'd like it to be to be sacrificing the time/energy to strength, so I'll focus more on one until it's up to scratch 🏊🚲🏃 also hitting some bench singles today, shoulders weren't feeling too hot after Thursdays long swim, but held together well for singles with 130kg 👊 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

Every time you diet down and get lean, the aim should always be to beat your previous condition, and have a greater level of muscle mass. If you’re not ticking both of those boxes, you’re wasting your time. This is why those of you who have never spend time building muscle will never look any different in the long run, and will struggle to make real tangible progress between diets.
We’ve been working with Graham for a while now, and three different diets (left to right). At the end of each diet, he’s ended up bigger and leaner than the last time. And this is because he focuses all of his attention in between on progressive overload with perfect form while staying in a consistent surplus. To make the improvements necessary, he accepted he may gain some body fat and look at little ‘fluffier’, but knew that in the long run, this would pay off.
Now that he’s happy with the size he’s gained over the past few years, his focus is now shifting towards maintaining a healthy condition year round. The key takeaway here is that if you want to gain significant amounts of muscle, you can’t stay attached to being very lean all the time. And if you’re happy with your size, you want to try and keep your body fat in check year round!
Fitness Training Workshop 6th January: This day is aimed at amateur MTB and Motocross riders/ racers who want to make the most out of their training, and would benefit from clear structure to sessions, a better understanding of their personal strengths and weaknesses, and some benchmarks to know how they are progressing. Sound like something you’d enjoy? Drop me a message for full details and to book a place. I’ve been running these winter workshops for a few years now and love being able to help people get a clear direction and maximise precious gym and training time. Join me at the University of Birmingham in the High Performance gym for 2 sessions across the day. #mtb#moto#fitness#coaching#training#fitfam#cycling#strength@tld_bike@tld_moto@bikeonscott 📸 @jonesemtb and @thegolfpt
They say money is evil,
And the world is coming to an end,
I say- you see only what you choose to,
You can be your worst enemy or your best friend. 🐶
They say your life isn't completely in your control,
And you never know how your day will end,
But I know my day from when I open my eyes in the morning,
I create my reality through conscious intentions that I send.🙏 They tell me who I am and what to do,
When I keep creating myself and align to my highest channel,
They tell me people never change,
But they don't realize people transform after every single battle.💯 They think being positive and grateful is unrealistic,
And I need the approval of others to form my opinions,
So I think to each their own,
Just listen carefully when you see my actions. 🌊
They pray and kneel to the ones in the higher strung of the ladder,
And hold onto too tight with the fear of losing,
But I bow down only to my inner truth,
And I have my wings when I am off the ground and end up flying. 👼

Monday motivation .
"Sometimes it's not about how good you are, but how bad you want it"
Another week to make it happen! Set the tone for the week.
This may be hard for some to hear , but it is truth . Homosexuality is sin , and whoever is involved in this sin needs to repent of it and needs deliverance from God . I used to be deceived by homosexuality in ways , but God set me free from the bondage of this sexual immorality .
We all are sinners and need the blood atonement of Christ Jesus that He made when He died on the cross for the sins of the world . He then was buried and rose the third day after . Becoming born again in Christ is by grace through faith in Him and His finished work on the cross , burial and resurrection .
Someone who is truly born again will begin then to have what people call a sanctification process . This is when your life begins to change for the better because you now have the Holy Spirit that leads you into all truth . Actions , desires , motives , all begin to gradually become more and more in line with God’s word and will . Someone who does not believe in God’s word does not have the fruit of a born again believer in Christ . Therefore still needing to receive salvation . If you are stuck in this sin please repent and turn to Christ . Life in flesh is but a vapor , eternity is forever . We do not have to condemn ourselves to hell by rejecting Christ . Scriptural proof from the Bible on homosexuality being sinful will be posted in the comments below . 🙏🏼✝️❤️💯

Reincarnation is a deception of satan to make people think they can live a life full of unrepentant sin in faithless rebellion against and without God and not worry because they then will think they will be able to just try over and over in different lives till they get it right to earn heaven later when the truth is we are all sinners and can’t earn heaven and need the atonement that JESUS made when He died on the cross for the sins of the world was buried and rose the third day after from the dead . Please repent and turn to Christ if you have been deceived by reincarnation . Jesus is the only way to God because truly Jesus is God . Reincarnation is unbiblical and
This one scripture here proves that to be true :
Hebrews 9:27 King James Version (KJV)
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
And before someone may ask “What about the second death spoken of in Revelation ?” Every mans flesh has one time to die (appointed unto men once to die) and then those who are not saved by grace through faith in Christ because they did not want God will also have an eternal spiritual death (this is the second death)
Here it is straight from the scriptures in context :
Revelation 20:11-15 King James Version (KJV)
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Ephesians 6:10-18 King James Version (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Isaiah 54:17 King James Version (KJV)
17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
Keep the faith , never give up ! Through Christ all things are possible . Greater is Christ than he who is in the world . Trust God nomatter what ! 🙏🏼✝️❤️💯
