If your goal is to build a good amount of muscle, you need to be training as close to failure as possible!

Next time youโ€™re in the gym, take a look around. Most people donโ€™t train anywhere near to failure.

I'm even guilty of doing this ๐Ÿ™„ Stick to the plan during the week but it all goes down hill at the weekend ๐Ÿ“‰

To build muscle you're gonna need that calorie surplus. Ideally spread throughout the week and not just at the weekend but hey, calories are calories right!! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

John has gained a little over 5kgs of muscle in 5 months by simply being ultra consistent with his workouts and tidying up his diet.

This in itself is a fantastic achievement, but itโ€™s not always about the visible changes, during the 5 months of working together John has also gained in other areas;

๐Ÿ“ Improved Posture

๐Ÿ“ Increased Strength

๐Ÿ“ Increased energy levels

๐Ÿ“ Increased confidence and self esteem

๐Ÿ“ Increased productivity at work

๐Ÿ“ Reduced lower back pain

The biggest change Iโ€™ve seen in John over the past few months is watching his confidence grow with everything.

We all lack motivation from time to time, its only natural. No one can stay 100% motivated all of the time.

There are many factors that can cause you to lose motivation; a lack of clarity or vision. A lack of direction, not having a goal to work towards. A lack of confidence, either in yourself or your abilities. Maybe you just don't have the energy or you're suffering from tiredness, fatigue or stress.

In the end, you start to feel guilty. You know you need to get off your ass and do something about it, but you just CBA right? I get it!!

If this sounds at all familiar, I've got you covered,
try using one or all of these ideas.

โ˜† ๐™ƒ๐™–๐™ซ๐™š ๐™– ๐™ฅ๐™ก๐™–๐™ฃ!

Planning helps your mind create a clear vision of what you want to do. Buy yourself a workout diary and plan your workouts, and make them exciting. By using aworkout diary you can also track your progress. If you just try to wing it you'll eventually lose focus and motivation (again).

โ˜† ๐™๐™จ๐™š ๐™š๐™ญ๐™š๐™ง๐™˜๐™ž๐™จ๐™š๐™จ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™–๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™–๐™ก๐™ก๐™ฎ ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™Ÿ๐™ค๐™ฎ ๐™™๐™ค๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ!

No one likes doing things they don't enjoy. Just look at how busy the gym is on chest day compared to leg day!
If the thought of chest day gets you all pumped, go do it!!

โ„™๐•’๐•ค๐•ค๐•š๐• ๐•Ÿ ๐•“๐•ฃ๐•–๐•–๐••๐•ค ๐•ž๐• ๐•ฅ๐•š๐•ง๐•’๐•ฅ๐•š๐• ๐•Ÿ

โ˜† ๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ ๐™ค๐™›๐™› ๐™จ๐™ก๐™ค๐™ฌ!

Give yourself a time limit, around 45 minutes to start with. Any longer and you will most likely start to lose focus and get bored, clock-watching your way to the end of the workout. That'll be enough to kill any motivation you conjured up in the first place. Keep it short and sweet!!

โ˜† ๐™‚๐™š๐™ฉ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง๐™จ๐™š๐™ก๐™› ๐™– ๐™ฌ๐™ค๐™ง๐™ ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐™ฅ๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ฃ๐™š๐™ง!

You'll feel more inclined to get your butt to the gym if you've agreed to meet and train with someone. Plus, if they're a regular gym-goer, they can help push you further out of your comfort zone. I guarantee you'll feel better when it's finished.

๐Ÿ’กBetter still, hire me as your coach and let me do all the hard work like plan your workouts ๐Ÿ“ˆ
Trust me, Im not about to let you skip the gym!!

Some serious hamstring development from my client John. These we always a weak area for him so we stripped the exercise right back.

Over the past month we've focused primarily on working the muscle unilaterally without increasing the weight, concentrating more on form and working the target muscle rather than facilitating with others.

Sometimes you need to take a few steps back to help propel you even further forward!!

The picture below is from Fridays (07/05/21) session, we finally added a 15kg plate to a hip hinge exercise and I think its safe to say the end result is pretty impressive.

If you are having trouble with lagging or weaker muscles. Drop me a message and let's chat about how I can help you.

This now means I have more spaces available to take on new 1-2-1 clients in a more personal, Covid safe environment.

Whatโ€™s yours?? Let me know below โฌ‡๏ธ

For me itโ€™s Triceps and Back.
I donโ€™t need to lift a lot of weight in order to feel the muscle working.

For those that are new to weight training, the mind-muscle connection refers to focusing your attention on the muscle that is working during a set of resistance or strength training.

Research has shown that individuals can increase muscle activity when focusing on using the specific muscle at intensities of up to 60% of their 1RM*.

So if you have a muscle that is lagging or doesnโ€™t seem to grow, try focusing your attention on it next time youโ€™re training.
