When I look at this picture, what goes through my head except "choose your character, from a game like street fighter or something" Tbh I'm not even gonna say what's going through my head, what I think I should have been,what I can be or what I'm gonna be. just gonna do it. The best bit of advice I've ever had is don't worry about the past or the future, just do everything you can right now in the present (work) and your future will sort its self out and your past will make sense. I'm not sure when it will happen just don't sleep on me. Shot by the mad talented @tibonorman for anyone that's looking for fitness modelling shoots hit this man up. As you can see he's a G with the lighting 😜. #boxer #fitness #motivation #watchthisspace #takeover

This over training malarky certainly won't help you grow but it's great for getting lean. 3rd sesh of the day done. Fasted Cardio this morning 60 mins of the treadmill, shoulder sesh this afternoon and then a full body circuit tonight. Definitely have put all those extra kcal and carbs to good use now. Don't feel as watery and starting to dry out again as my conditioning is coming back through. Anything that can help with full body circulation and allows you to get a sweat on is going to help clear that extra film of fluid under the skin. 4 weeks to go and feeling on top of the world after yesterday re-feed. Time for a good week of training and mental torture. Actually enjoyed doing a circuit for a change rather than the usual cardio especially when it's HIIT training which if I was to do it would always be after a weights session as I would want to preserve as many carbs for the weights session and then use whatever is left at night. I would never do fasted HIIT as LISS is better to oxidise fatty acids in a fasted state whereas HIIT is more glycogen dependant so using cardio at specific times for different uses and purposes as well as what you enjoy can make a small difference. Last thing I want to do in the morning is HIIT too. #TheDifference #PhDNutrition #PerformanceNutrition #teampang @phdnutritionuk @extremegymglasgow #Glasgow @preppedandpacked @prepfitnesskitchen #Aesthetics #UKAesthetics @sfnexpo @elitefitnessnetwork #follow #photooftheday #food #fitness #bodybuilding #comp #prep #marcos #flexible #dieting #foodprep #nutrition #bodytransformationcoach #thenextlevel

Didn't get a chance to record much action from my last training session of 2016. The #NewYears #Resolution-ers were in full force today. Needless to say, finding prime real-estate to capture my good side was the last thing on my mind. 😅 Be safe and have fun celebrating the new year. 2016 wasn't fair to all of us, but if you're reading this, you have every chance to make 2017 better.

Good day of training today at @revolutiontraining. Pulled a 605 lb sumo deadlift and benched 245 lbs for 15 reps. The deadlift wouldn't have passed in competition as my grip was slipping so my lockout was soft with too much knee bend. But it's good enough for IG standards. Gonna work on grip strength; it comes up quickly if I train it directly. My left tricep has been iffy so I only did one set of bench. The deadlift rep is 15 lbs under my all-time best and the bench set is a PR. I believe this is the sixth time I've pulled over 600 lbs in my life (601 semi-sumo in competition, 605 conventional at Rev, 600 sumo at Glute Lab, 615 sumo at Glute Lab, 620 sumo at Glute Lab, and this). Then I went home to Glute Lab and did some chest supported rows, prone trap raises, prone rear delt raises, band lateral raises, db curls, band eccentric tricep extensions, db shrugs, db sumo squats, and inverse ham curls. This caps off a solid week of training. Gonna rest up over the weekend and hit it hard on Monday. #gluteguy

🎉 The 5-50 Finisher 🎉 The simple set up: 5 movements 50 reps of each must be finished before moving onto the next exercise. 1. 50 Jump Ropes 2. 50 Lateral Mt. Climbers 3. 50 Skater Hops 4. 50 Seal Jacks 5. 50 Close Grip (Diamond) Push-ups - that's 1 cycle track for time chasing quality not just the clock. This is a great little finisher to end any training session or if you want to run through 2-4 cycles it can be a great total body full workout as well. Tag me at #jeremyscottfitness if you give this 5-50 variation a try! #sundayfunday #workout #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #workoutmotivation #fitnessmotivation #menshealth #womenshealth #scottsdale #onlinecoaching #phoenix #47daytransformation #arizona #poolside #poolday #dogs #dogsofinsta #reebok #sweat #fatloss #personaltrainer #health #sunday #sundaymood

Energy's natural state is to be in continuous motion. As it travels it's always looking for the path of the least resistance. We can trap energy, harness energy and control energy but this will always go against it's natural state and eventually energy will find its flow or it will no longer be energy. When we move, flow, breath and interact, our intelligent body is also looking for the same path of least resistance. . We can resist being in flow for a some time, work against and try to control it but eventually we will align with the natural state of the universe or end up in a state of suffering. Once we tune into this, we realize that it's not what we do that brings us into harmony but how we not do it.

MY FAVORITE SINGLE-LEG MACHINE EXERCISE! I absolutely love the single-leg leg press. It's super accessible and it can allow almost anyone to get full flexion at the hip for maximum glute development. It's also an excellent way to fix imbalances between sides and complement more functional moves like stepups, lunges, and Bulgarian split squats. The added stability also really allows you to dial in a mind-muscle connection and safely chase massive metabolic stress. It's great on any leg press but particularly delicious on the @keiserfitness Air300 Leg Press machine. This machine is designed for explosive concentric actions for a constant resistance throughout the full range of motion. Plus there's no bouncing weight stack at the top from momentum-based dead weight options. Here I'm doing 3 sets of 12 reps/side (about 90 seconds of work) with 250 pounds of air pressure and 30 seconds of rest between sides. I use a slow 4-second eccentric and pause in the hole before maximally extending my hips and knees. This eliminates the stretch reflex so that muscles are doing all of the work. Peak power was 1,337 watts and the goal was to maintain at least 90% of peak power on the first 6 reps and at least 80% of peak power on the final 6 reps based on the digital display. As always, use whatever option you have available and focus on the prescriptions instead of the exact equipment I'm using. You will not be able to go as explosively on the concentric phase but still lift with explosive intent to stimulate those fast-twitch muscle fibers. ALSO- THERE IS NOTHING DANGEROUS ABOUT FULLY EXTENDING YOUR JOINTS! WHAT'S DANGEROUS IS HYPER-EXTENDING THEM! #YouKnowNothingJohnSnow #FlexFriday #LegPress #KeiserFitness #AskYourGymToBuyThis #Legs #LegDay #Glutes #GluteExercises #Quads #TheHamstringGuy #BJGaddour #Air300LegPress
