LIFT YO’ BODY
I’ve mentioned this before but I think it’s really important not only to be able to “throw weights around” but to be able to move YOURSELF.
Some moves I always work in with their respective muscle groups are:
Pull-ups (yes, they’re different)
These movements are also great gauges for strength. Throughout prep, I’ve done everything I can to maintain strength and lift heavy. Worked hard for my gains and I’ll be clinging onto them for dear life!
Here’s a few videos from today - work them into your next tricep workout!
Weighted Dips - I remember when I could only do 3 of these with my body weight. Today I knocked out 11, 8, & 8 reps with a 10lb weight belt (at a new low weight & 4 wks out).
Elevated Bench Dips - These are tough! Slowwww on the eccentric and pop up. Dip until those tris are parallel to the ground. I normally use a 45# plate so I did go down to 35# to get 10 reps for 3 sets.
I’ve noticed minor strength depletion in a few movements as my body fat drops but overall it’s sustained very well!! Squatted, deadlifted, and hip thrusted my 3 rep max til 5 weeks out and dropped about 10% for safety last week. Still feelin’ good and pushing HARD!
If you see me less just know I’m doing more. Work in silence and let those who doubt you be shocked when you destroy them. I’m coming. My team is coming. That’s not some shit you can let be taken lightly. Time to get to work this Sunday
Here’s a picture of my starting point My starting weight last time was 130.2 and this time it will be 115.4! Huge difference and I can’t wait to see the outcome. Just be patient and stick to the game plan
