That moment When you’re clearly the third wheel and trying to act like you don’t notice all the lovey dovey shit going on behind you. 😂
Seriously Thinking about these two today. Two of the strongest people I know. Period!

Shoulders. I hate working shoulders. But I never regret it. -
Do they hurt? Yes.
Is it worth it? Yes.
You’ll never regret doing it, but you’ll always regret not. -
They’ll hurt less with proper post workout to repair and rebuild. You won’t regret that either 😉
Rear delts are like the red headed step child of the shoulder- so many people train the lateral and anterior deltoids but completely forget to give the rear delts any love.
From a functional standpoint this leads to muscular imbalances and strength weaknesses. (Want a stronger bench? Get stronger rear delts!) The rear deltoids are crucial in efficient Shoulder movement like shoulder extension, transverse extension, transverse abduction and external rotation (turning the upper arm outward).
From an aesthetic standpoint they're also crucial. You will never have a round full set of shoulders only training two out of the three deltoid heads. A nice set of rear deltoids completes the aesthetic look of the shoulders and really adds to the overall look of your back. And bodybuilding is about balance. People who do a lot of anterior shoulder work develop a forward roll to the delts which takes away from upper body width and thickness. By developing the rear delts properly, you establish better posture and encourage the shoulders to be pulled back. This causes the chest to be pushed out and helps create more width and fullness through the upper body.
As a bonus, stronger rear delts will also help alleviate headaches, neck and back pain.
My favorites are rear delt flys (I do them as shown, or using bands, cables, subtly changing angles), low to high face pulls, high angle face pulls, rear delt barbell rows, and inverted rows (I pull to the neck). Change it up with bands, cables, dumbbells, weight plates or a barbell.
TIP: Until you get good mind to muscle connection and become aware of how to properly control and contract the rear delts keep weight light to moderate.

The fact that shoulder day & taco Tuesday fall on the same day, it’s a recipe for happiness 💃🏻
I had one of two options yesterday. No1, celebrate my 20th with friends & go get fucked up just like every other person... or No2. Spend my entire 20th in the gym. I did exactly that!
I’ve been off the radar in New Zealand the past 2yrs & people haven’t seen too much of me. These late night sessions and early mornings at the gym will reflect on the way I look & you’ll soon understand why I do what I do 💯

Fuck all people realise how hard it is to be a bodybuilder. I’m not saying I am one but majority of people think 1hr a day 3days a week and some protein shakes is going to cut it, which is a load of shit! Bodybuilding is a 24/7 365day job.. If I told you I trained every day for 3yrs I would be bullshitting you. Yes I’ve cheated on workouts and my diet before but there have been countless hours in the gym, late nights, early mornings, blood, sweat & tears to get me to where I am today!! People tell me to get a life and live it 100%, as corny as this sounds, gym is my fucking life, I live and breathe this shit.. And if you’ve got the same work ethic as I do then I’ll see you at the top 🌍

Are you using too much momentum on your lifts?
Quick #flexfriday tip, if you find yourself swinging too much on bicep curls, lateral raises etc, try sitting down and keeping you back pinned to the bench. This should kill any momentum and force you to do strict reps.

I woke up hungry this morning, which hasn’t happened in a while. does it mean I’m growing more muscle.??? 😬 please? 😂 sure I’ll go with that. 💪🏽 grabbed a quick cereal snack, fried my shoulders, and back for a real breakfast. 💥pro tip: always re-fill dead muscles with nutbutter 👅 ———————————————————————— Cappucino overnight oats [~2/3c oats, 1 scoop @sunwarriortribe vanilla plant protein, 1tsp chia seeds, 1/4c @bizzycoffee cold brew, 1/2c cashew milk] ☕️ topped with banana, chocolate pb, & @myfavoriteindulgence mocha granola 💯
