S I D E • o v e r s ✖️ on the high barrel are unassumingly difficult for two reasons 🔥 1️⃣ the work through the obliques is just next level 😅 and 2️⃣ they can also be quite difficult to do well - ever had that horrible feeling of hanging off your outer thighs and low back?? 😖 ... SO here is a little modification that might help you/clients get there! If we think of lateral Pilates mimicking standing posture, then this modification might be described as a side lying pliè 😉 it preps the adductors (inner thighs) extensors (glutes and hamstrings) AND your mind to maintain INTENTIONAL low body activation during side bending 🌈 hopefully eliminating the ‘hanging on for dear life’ sensation and welcoming a sense of CONTROL(ogy) 😜 enjoy!
I’ve been privileged to meet a lot of big influencers in the beauty arena, from hairstylists, to hair formula scientists and R and D scientists for major skincare lines. I want to share some of what I’ve learned from them specifically about how to get beautiful hair, skin, and nails by boosting keratin and collagen production in the body. — My next big project, is going to be a whole beauty book. I’ll pack it full of makeup tips for girls, hairstyling and hair growth tips for guys and gals, and all kinds of great recommendations on getting the best skin you’ve ever had in your life. — When you feel beautiful inside, healthy and full of energy and lightness, you radiate beauty. It shines like a glow from deep within you. Your smile lights up your glowing face and your skin will naturally be infused with light, color, and a sense of tranquility that makes you, well, simply beautiful. That kind of outer beauty can only come from achieving harmony within and without—taking care of yourself and nurturing as well as changing yourself. Good sleep is CRUCIAL—ask any model. There is no makeup or moisturizer as good as a good 8 to 10 hours of reparative, collagen-synthesis promoting sleep. You also want to take care of the skin, the envelope you live within your entire life. You can have a wrinkled, dusty, somewhat tattered and abused envelop or a glossy one that’s obviously been cherished. — Good nutrition is essential. I also believe strongly that when you nourish the spirit it shows from within. The healthier your soul, your aura, if you will, the more color shines through your skin and glimmers all around you. It will show in your sparkling eyes, glowing skin, and big, happy smile, which does so much for a face. — You deserve to pamper yourself as you would someone you love very, very much-because the more you love you, just the way you are, the more love radiates into everything and everyone around you #dubaipersonaltrainer#dubaiblogger
1 1/4 REP TRAINING🔥 SWIPE➡️SAVE💾TRAIN💪🏼 - 1 1/4 Rep work can be used to overload a muscle in its weakest portion of its contractile range, such as, the bottom of a squat, the bottom of a bench press or the top of a pull up. - To complete a 1 1/4 Rep set, firstly you complete a normal full range rep, then follow it with a 1/4 Rep in the movements weakest position. That would be classed as 1 rep and then repeat this for a set number of reps. - Adding in a 1/4 Rep can help to increase strength at the muscles weakest position as well as adding more time under tension, which can help with muscle growth. People often struggle with certain positions in a movement, like above, in the bottom portion of a movement or the ‘hole’ which is a term used for the bottom of a squat. So adding in a few sets of 1/4 reps can help you build strength to get stronger in that position. - Example above shows a DB Bench Press 1 1/4 Rep set, where the 1/4 Rep is at the bottom (stretch) portion of the movement. The added benefit to doing the 1/4 Rep in the stretch position is that there is extra hypertrophic potential as studies have shown stretching a muscle under load can induce hypertrophy as well. This was my 3rd exercise in after my main movements. I did a set with 30kg for 8 and a back off set at 26kg for 12. Start lighter as you won’t be able to lift as heavy as normal doing this technique. - Give this a go in your next workout👊🏼 - #weakpointtraining#workoutoftheday#brendanpearsonfitness

FULL BODY WORKOUTS...THE WHO, HOW AND WHY.🤷♂️ - - Right so why would you want to do a full body workout oppose to splitting things up? - Well it means you can train the same muscle group more frequently. This helps you get better at specific movements as you’re doing them more frequently (practice makes perfect and that) which can lead to strength gains and muscle growth as you’re able to lift more from getting more competent at specific movements. - - How would you structure said workout then? - Firstly I would start with the area or muscle group that you’re most interested in growing and working on. - So for my client Sarah who’s doing the workout shown she was and is most concerned in growing her Legs and Glutes. Therefore we started with Hip Thrusts and took it from there. - - Generally try keep the workout to around 8 exercises maximum and don’t spend more than an hour in the gym. Anymore time than that and you’ll lose focus and the enjoyment factor will be away. - - Anyway here is a Leg and Glute oriented Full Body workout for you. You could do this workout 3 times per week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday). - - 1) Barbell Hip Thrusts. 10-12 reps x 3 sets. 2) Close Stance Leg Press. 12-15 reps x 3 sets. 3) Single Leg Weighted Glute Bridge. 15-20 reps x 3 sets. 4)Bulgarian Split Squat Pulses. 15 per leg x 3 sets. 5)Seated Low Cable Row. 10-12 reps x 3 sets. 6)Seated Reverse Shoulder Press. 10-12 reps x 3 sets. 7)Upright Rows.12-15 reps x 3 sets. - - Have a good weekend and don’t hesitate to message me if there’s anything I could help you with.🙌 - #fullbodyworkout#workoutoftheday#glutes#legs#hipthrust#musclebuilding#toning#personaltraining#pt#puregym#puregympaisley#onlinetraining
Would it even be a gym selfie if I didn’t take a pic in the toilet though?! 😂 also, can we talk about these vacuum cleaner looking hairdryers 🤦🏽♀️ would honestly take 4 years to dry my hair with one of those!!
Never go out there thinking that you’re better than anyone… that’s just being a flog! - But if it becomes clear that someone has the intention of bringing you down… - Then FUCK THAT! You’re way better than them! Don’t let them drag you down to their level 🙌🏽 - Cut them loose! You don’t need that negativity in your life trying to anchor you down 🙅🏽♂️ - #phraseoftheweek#cutemloose#dropthedeadweight#mindsetmatters
