  • 🔥HOW TO BURN BELLY FAT by @cartergood 🔥
    ——
    I get lots ’n’ lots of questions about losing fat, and this one trumps them all.

    I could be talking to a high school student, a middle-aged woman, a big business entrepreneur, or a retired school teacher…

    Same Q —> “How can I get rid of my belly?”

    Here in a sec, I’m gonna give you some tips for losing belly fat...

    But first, I have bad news, good news, more bad news, and then good news to finish off 😁

    Bad news —> you can& #039 ;t directly target belly fat (or any area).

    Good news —> with hard work, you can lose it 💯

    More bad news —> losing belly fat is gonna take a buttload of time & patience.

    More good news —> you& #039 ;ve got time, and with patience & consistency, you’ll no-doubt build a body you’re proud of 💪☺️

    With that said, here are some tips for getting rid of that pesky belly fat:

    1️⃣ Create a Sustainable Calorie Deficit

    Once you understand the science of calorie balance, it can be tempting to wanna slash as many of them suckers as possible. If a slight calorie deficit is good, then an extreme deficit is better, right?

    Hold up, Speedy Magee. That might sound nice, but you’ve gotta think further ahead...

    You& #039 ;ll drop weight quickly, but only for so long...

    1-2 weeks?
    1-2 months?
    How long before you crack?

    Because it& #039 ;s not a matter of if, but when you burn out & quit.

    You don& #039 ;t wanna lose fat and gain it back.
    You wanna lose fat and keep it off forever.

    Keep it sustainable. If you’re losing 5-1% of your body weight per week, you’re doing well!

    2️⃣ Build Muscle w/ Strength Training

    This& #039 ;ll ensure that most (if not all) of the weight you do lose comes entirely from body fat.

    I’m running out of characters, so if you want more details on strength training, check out my 14-Day Fat Loss Course or Home Workout Program (both links in my bio).

    3️⃣ Be F*ckin’ Patient Cuz This Shit Takes Time

    You could have everything dialed to the T... and it would STILL take a crap-ton of time to get rid of stubborn belly fat.

    So stop fussing over every little pound or pinch of fat. Stop falling for gimmicks & fads...

    Be patient and know that your daily consistency will be wort

  • Build Up Lagging Muscles by @trainwithcarsen
    _

    We all have that one muscle group that just refuses to gain size. It almost seems like you’ve been gifted with the “small arms” or “small chest” gene, but let me tell you, this is NOT the case❗️Here are three things you need to do to get that lagging muscle group to grow.
    _

    FREQUENCY✅ To build up a lagging muscle group, you need to make it your MAIN priority. That means that your routine should be solely focused around training that muscle group. You’ll need to start training that muscle group 2-4x/week to really get it to grow.
    _

    ROUTINE✅ One of the reasons why you’re struggling to build up this lagging muscle group is because if you’ve been pounding away at the same old routine for too long! You’ve hit a mental and physical plateau and it’s time to introduce a new routine. A new routine will offer new movements to stimulate new muscle growth, and will also revamp your mind.
    _

    MIND-MUSCLE CONNECTION✅ Another reason you’re struggling to build this muscle group is because you lack a strong mind-muscle connection. That means, your ability to consciously contract the muscle through the full range. If you’re chest pressing and not feeling your pecs contract, you’re not doing a whole lot of good to building that chest.
    Take some time before the workouts to work with lighter weights and consciously contracting the muscle. Hold your contractions for 3-4 seconds and SQUEEZ.

  • REP RANGES BY @trainwithcarsen
    _

    In order to maximize your muscle in the gym, it’s crucial to understand rep ranges and when to use them.
    _

    STRENGTH (1-5): This lower rep range is used for strength training. Here you are working with heavy weight for only 1-5 reps. ✅The purpose of this rep range is to get you stronger.
    _

    HYPERTROPHY (6-12): This is one of the more common rep ranges used in the gym. ✅The 6-12 rep range is used to stimulate an increase in muscle cell size.
    _

    ENDURANCE (12-20): The endurance rep range can be great for athletes looking to improve their stamina BUT this rep range can also be a great tool for building muscle as well. ✅Working with a higher rep range enhances blood flow to the muscle, also known as the “pump”. This creates metabolic stress and ultimately leads to muscle growth. This rep range is trained with lighter weights.
    _

    IMPORTANT❗️In order for these rep ranges to be relevant, you NEED to be training close to failure every time. This means your last couple reps should be tough to get through, regardless of whatever rep range you’re using.
    _

    If you do not understand how to properly program these rep ranges into a workout routine and you’re interested in working with a coach who will work with you to design your ultimate workout program - send me a DM.
