Focus on your goal. Don't look back in any direction but ahead ✔️ #focus #goals #torontofitness #resiliencefitness
The dumbbell Romanian deadlift (DB RDL) is a great exercise to strengthen your hamstrings ✅ As you see in the video, the hip joint is where most of the movement is happening--try thinking about putting as much distance between your hips and your head as possible ✅ You are also going to be mindful of maintaining a neutral spine and pushing through the heels to recruit those hamstrings ✅ Keep the DBs close to your legs (a great cue for this is to think about "painting your legs with the DBs) ✅ Give this one a shot whether in the gym or at home!

Step aside @sweetjesus ... this bowl was delish! Rarely do I crave ice cream {chocolate, all the time}, but the other night the craving was REAL! If you're looking for a healthy version of ice cream, read on... combine almond milk, ice in blender until it's an icy consistency. Then add 1/2 scoop of peanut butter chocolate whey (I used @bioxperformancenutrition ) and 1/2 scoop vanilla vegan protein (I used @genuinehealth ). For toppings I used half a protein bar and a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut shreds. . . . . . . . . #icecream #protein #muscles #diet #recipe #recipehack #healthy #balance #diet #abs #howtogetabs #cleaneats #cleaneating #yum #proteinicecream #dessert #fit #torontofitness #toronto #healthy
@jeff_willows has always been athletic—an avid runner, triathlete, skier and just an overall active person. But, beyond this, what has really led to his athletic triumphs has been his dedication and motivation.” - @fitness.tales on how her husband Jeff inspired her to start her own #fitnessjourney , today on #Svveatspiration .

This is me! No heavy flexing, no filter, no pump or lightskin magic!😏 _________________________________ --A year ago I was 165 lbs heels planted. Today I'm proud to say I'm at a conservative 195lbs. How did I do it? _________________________________ First: understanding my flaws, accepting them and building a program around that. _________________________________ Second: DIET! What you do outside the gym is more important than what you do in 45min-1hr at the gym. #rns _________________________________ Third: Commitment to your goals. Don't set the bar to where you can't jump over it! But don't BS yourself either, if you didn't put 100% you know you didn't. #fixup _________________________________ Fourth: Progression! Don't do the same shit over & over. Mix up equipment & training. Most important: progressive overload. Keep your body growing ; increase that weight gradually. Watch your max become your warm up! Switch up programs every 6-12 weeks as a beginner. _________________________________ Fifth: Research. Wisest are the one's who know they know nothing! #Bruh learn everything, ignorance leads to injuries or worse lack of progression. Study form, types of training, effective rest times, diets etc. This is a lifestyle become it! _________________________________ Finally: PATIENCE! Nothing happens over night, but you get what you put in if you follow the above. #realshit _________________________________ I'm by no means where I want to be, but every now and then take a minute to appreciate the work you put in. Then hit the gas and push yourself to the next level! #skrrt #skrrt _________________________________ PS LOVE YOURSELF! Flaws, we all have them. Yeaa, I'm hairy & lightskinned af, but I'm me! Don't let the IG fantasy blind you to reality. We ain't all going pro, and likes don't mean your liked!💯👊🏼💪🏼
I realized I was unhappy with my shoulder development a couple weeks back. So, I decided to hit them harder than ever. It's nice to see a bit of results showing from that. Always go for what you want. Believe in yourself and make it a reality. We Can all achieve greatness. Let's go get it! . . . . . . . #inspired #gymmotivation #inspire #morningmotivation #torontofit #fit #torontofitness #fitnesstoronto #gymmotivation #torontotrainer #ontariomuscle #ontariofit #dailymotivation #weightloss #fatloss #health #wellness #jonathonsheppardfitness #jsf #torontotraining #believe #yesyoucan #justlift #lift #chestday

People seem to forget about the different types of muscle contractions. Most lifters only focus on the isotonic, the lengthening and shortening of a muscle and leave out isometric holds. Isometric holds have not only shown to decrease recovery time but can also be used as a great overload technique to maintain hypertrophy on your workout. A hold like this may look easy but it's a perfect display of balance, strength and control. Sure you can hold this position with your hips imbalanced, or scapula elevated but if done properly you will see massive strength gains. Exercises like this can only be seen in some of the top gyms in your area. The cheap 24/7 gym around the corner may be a good fit for your wallet, but not your end fitness goals.
