Something we have fully embraced and luckily we both understand that it is needed... is the fact that you have to be in a calorie surplus to grow. But in the end it all depends on your goals in life. We are competitors and we need to put on weight to put on muscle. A portion of that weight is muscle, water and a portion of it is fat as well. It is fully impossible to stay stage lean if you actually want to come back next year larger and better. We embrace it. But again, it depends on your goals. Right now we are working towards getting stronger yet with perfect form. So performance based. Which essentially for us is what we need to know we are growing larger (underneath our layer of winter warmth😏) ahah
We have definitely been enjoying the Canadian food (like A & W from this pic) as well as the beautiful snow! 😂💪🏼 But more importantly is that we have been enjoying the time together and have restarted to train together again. Something we lost during prep because we both had different priorities. 😢 Funniest thing is... we actually lift heavier training together because we’re so competitive against each other 😂🦍
Light flex in my favorite Lulu’s 💪🏼🍑 Busy ass day but I leave for vacation first thing tomorrow morning so yay!
Can’t wait to have more time to spend on these workouts and get these muscles growing 😬. Who’s on top of their building program for the winter?! Not sure where to get started? My guys @outlierfitnessproject have your programming and nutritional needs covered! If you’re ready to see some serious gains this season use my code ‘KARAOFP’ for 20% off your first program 🙌🏼🙌🏼
Working with them was one of the best decisions I’ve made this year 👏🏼 Hope y’all are having a great day... keep grindin! .
Getting rejected sucks.
It sucks to get rejected by someone you like, by a job position you really wanted, by friends, by your family etc etc. It might tigger our inner fears and doubts.
For example: After passing my NASM exam, I decided to work as an Independent Trainer. The process hasn’t been easy. I spend hours talking to random people about my what I do and what I offer. Ive faced rejection and I am not ashamed of it at all. I’ve learned that being turned down isn’t awful as I imagine. Rejection can be a good learning experience about ourselves. It serves me as evidence that I am pushing my myself to my limits. It shows that I am not settling for less. Rejection will not define me, but it will assists me to become a better me by asking myself three simple questions:🤔
How can I improve?
What could I have done different?
How should I modify my approach? -
This has got to be the ugliest dish I've made. I wasn't going to post it but it tastes so good! I hate mushrooms and this is a mushroom dish so that is saying something. Size wise it's pretty small though which is a shame! Cut 200g pork fillet into medallions and season with cumin and garlic bake for 20 minutes. Fry up a heap of chopped mushrooms with garlic and onion while baking half a cup of ricotta in the oven for 40 mins. Mix the ricotta and mushroom dish with pork and dress with 2 tbs balsamic vinegar and 1tbs olive oil. Makes 2 serves #f45challenge
