Last night, I saw an ad for pretzel crust pizza with nacho cheese sauce. In that moment, I 100% could have eaten 3 of them whole. I haven’t eaten anything but whole foods for the last 7 weeks and really wanted some junk food. I figured it was time for another progress pic to amp myself up again. Comparing these two pictures is beyond motivating. Not only is there an 11 pound difference, but there’s a difference in personality. On the right is a girl who blames her weight gain her on a stressful job and a busy schedule. On the left, is a girl who loves her body, job, and life in general. This diet hasn’t just changed my body, but it’s changed my life as a whole. The fact that I’m getting stronger is a major bonus. So while I might have to kiss those pretzel pizzas good bye for now, I’d give a thousand of them up to feel this good. Thanks @rpstrength
TGI-W!!!!!! bc it totally feels like Tuesday (aka the worst day) but it’s not, it’s WEDNESDAY. •
Today also marks 2 months post-op 🎉 I celebrated with 10 min on the elliptical 😂
Getting back in my routine, back to my fave mirror selfie spot (no shame) & back to reminding myself what I can do with my body💪 it feels goooood - still taking it day by day though bc that’s all you can do ✨

Try something new from time to time. It’s great training for your brain. .
Always keep learning new things. Be curious about what your body is capable of doing. .
There’s research that supports that our brain can maintain its function and plasticity due to making new neural pathways through mindfully challenging it to a new skill. .
Moving to a new city, getting a new job or buying a great new outfit all circulate new energy. But learning a new exercise is just as invigorating but probably a whole lot less expensive. .
What’s something new that you want to try?

Giving the 16kg (35lb) a test run. Close! Did lots of holds and eccentrics with it after this. #rngstrong
Truth: I don’t always feel like working out. I actually had my alarm set for 5 this morning just in case I decided to sleep in and not get up and workout. Luckily I made a commitment to workout with one of my girls this morning so I got up, drank my pre, and got it done. I was super uncoordinated and got frustrated, but I didn’t give up. I got it done. .
Guys, you won’t always have the motivation to workout. You won’t always have the motivation to go out and buy healthy food. You won’t always have the motivation to prep said healthy food. Sometimes you won’t feel like it. At all. The difference, though, is having the DISCIPLINE to do it anyway. ✌🏻
#wcw To all the strong, badass women I have met because of CrossFit.
Thankful that even though Shereen is faster and stronger than me she still likes when we train together. 😂
The only advantage I have over @shereentaljebini? My tan. 😎

Clients who train like absolute beasts need to be pushed to another level. @simrangrewal_ smashes everything I give her whether it’s heavy deadlifts, new accessories or high volume met-cons to finish a workout.
She is currently working under a 4 day split of two lower and two upper body days. Although the primary goal is body composition, she’ll often work at higher RPE’s and lift for 3-5 reps. Using both strength and hypertrophy based phases has had a huge impact on her physique (photos coming soon ☺️) but here’s a little sample of one of her routines:
A1 3x3 sumo deadlift
B1 3x6-8 BB pin squat
B2 3x6-8 snatch grip back extension
C1 3x20 banded hypers
Doing 15-20 reps exclusively on cable machines every session will only work for so long. Use a variety of rep ranges, resistances and training styles to witness some real quality physical changes. #weapon
