Bodybuilding is more than #lifting weights. It's a #lifestyle, mindset, and freedom honestly.
Everyone doesnt have the courage, passion, and dedication to live a lifestyle revolving around lifting weights and eating well.
That mindset is a growth mindset! Always grinding harder and getting better to feel amazing.
It's freedom because you know that you have so much less of a chance to get injured in the gym because you've practiced form, understand how to warm-up, and can feel your limits or max. You have the ability to change the amount of flexibility and strength of your body.
This exercise is the reverse hack squat, which provides ME less pressure on MY lower back than a traditional barbell back squat. I am also knock-kneed, therefore my knees ALWAYS adduct before a lift. Before attempting 180lbs, I did several exercises for my hams and glutes, then I warmed up with the machine and no plates, and slowly added more and more.
Now this #MINDSET is a real thing because I did NOT want to attempt this lift (remember, you should know your limits.) Traditionally on a barbell squat, with 4 plates total and the barbell, this would be 225, which I have yet to lift... I was apprehensive but I got the encouragement and support from my workout crew #teamgainz @reydamusician @kodak_noworries to push through, therefore, my boy Rey stated, "There you go!" during my set. They're awesome.
Anyway, get you that lifestyle, mindset, freedom, AND a crew or buddy if you need it, and get to work!! Believe in yourself ya'll.. do it for your health. #fitchicks #personaltrainer #transformyourlife #bodygoals #bootygains #booty #reversehacksquat
