Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them:
#Desire #Dream #Vision

They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.

It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief.
And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.

How do muscles grow?

Muscle hypertrophy, or increased size of skeletal muscle, is the body's adaptive stance when increased resistance or force is placed upon the body. The number of muscle cells does not increase, but rather their size does.

Resistance training results in two types of growth: sarcoplasmic hypertrophy and myofibrillar hypertrophy. The former focuses more on increased muscle glycogen storage and is found in professional bodybuilders and endurance athletes. The latter, which focuses more on increased myofibril (the rodlike unit of a muscle cell) size, is seen in powerlifters, olympic lifters and strength athletes.

For average gym-goers, a consistent progressive overload, whereby you increase the resistance and/or repetitions will aid in muscle hypertrophy.

Formula 101,
ResistanceTraining + ProgressiveOverload = MusclesGrow

#Myths - Muscle vs Fat

1. Muscle can turn into Fat & vice versa
The two are entirely different tissues & can't magically morph into each other. However, if you stop working out, your fat cells will get bigger & your muscle fibers will shrink, which I why you may notice some extra jiggle.

2. Eating Fat makes you Fat
The opposite - healthy fat helps keep you lean. People eating a mediterranean diet rich in olive oil & nuts lost more weight than those on a low fat diet.

3. You can spot reduce Fat
When your body need energy, it pulls from all of your fat cells, not just the areas you want to target. The first place where you gain fat typically is the last place you'll lose it.

4. Muscle weights more than Fat
A kg of fat & a kg of muscle weight exactly the same. The volume of muscle is denser & more compact than fat. That's why you see yourself become slimmer, without the number on the scale dropping.

Of course a kg of muscle weights the same as a kg of fats. The problem is that kg of fats will be 4 times or so bigger than that kg of muscle... It's like saying feather and stone weights the same. Cause a kg feather means a kg stone...

I say: The volume of MUSCLE is denser & more compact than fat.
U say: FAT will be 4 times or so bigger than that of muscle.
Isn't we have the same conclusion


FYI,
Muscle is denser than fat, which means it takes up less space than fat. Muscle takes up approximately four-fifths as much space. Two people may be the same height and weight, but the person with a higher body fat percentage will wear a larger clothing size.

#SOP

You can dramatically improve your PullUps & PushUps when you integrate the following SOP.

Concentration - on the mind-body connection during an Pull or Push & picture the specific muscle pathways that will complete that movement. Then form a mental image of yourself performing the exercise correctly, in proper alignment.

Centering - pay special attention to the muscles of your core, which include the abdomen, lower back, hips and butt. They help all your body's muscle function more efficiently.

Control - do not focus on intensity or reps, but on quality of movement. Control also develops strength, stamina, flexibility, equilibrium & posture - preventing stress on bones, muscles & joints.

Relaxation - your body is moving during the 60sec, but DO NOT tense the muscle the full 60sec. Relax your weakest link is the solution to increase reps.

Breathing - has a specific breathing pattern for push & pull, remember IO method.

Precision - pay attention to your form. Start & end correctly.

Flow - with graceful connections & transitions from one position to the next as you up & down the load (your body weight).

#Now or #Never

It's easy to dream up goals, but it's difficult to execute them.

Often times, we procrastinate on getting started, or we lose focus along the way & give up.

What helps is having a plan. Its doesn't matter if you write it on paper, save it in the cloud or memorize it. Without a plan of action, your session will be half-assed, lack intensity & deliver few, if any tangible gains.

So does having support, as no man is an island.

#MomentaryMuscleFailure


Momentary muscle failure simply means that we are asking the muscles to perform a certain number of repetitions, in strict form, to a point where the muscles cannot continue to create additional movement. Nearing the end of a predetermined given number of reps, you'll reach the point where the muscles start to become challenged and you really "feel it" in that muscle. That's the point of muscle fatigue - the target muscle or muscle group is getting tired. But you've got to keep going past fatigue to a point of "failure" as the whole idea is to ask the muscle to do more than it's capable of doing at a given stage.

So let's say that you've performed a 20 repetition and you're feeling that muscle fatigue. Then you move on to repetition number 21. And now you're trying and trying and - you got it! You did repetition number 21 - in strict form, of course! Great! But, that's not a point of failure yet - simply because you achieved it. So now you're going to attempt to do repetition number 22 - in strict form. And on this rep you are trying and trying and trying and - Whew! You just can't do it. Some people may have a tendency at this point to cheat, to throw in other body parts, or to somehow use momentum to get the weight to the place you're trying to get to. DON'T! That's the worst thing you can do! Because when you reach that point of momentary muscle failure, that is the stimulus - you are asking the muscle to do something that it's not capable of doing. And when it reaches that point of failure, STOP! Now you've reached strict muscle failure. That's when the muscle responds by getting a little more toned and a little stronger.

Momentary muscle failure can occur at 10 reps, 20 reps, or for 30 seconds, for example. There's not a magical number. MMF at lower reps tends to stimulate the enhancement of fast twitch muscle fibers (explosive fibers); MMF at higher repetitions will stimulate the slower twitch muscle fibers (endurance fibers).

If MMF sounds scary, it's not. You'll be able to follow it - it's definitely not as hard as it might sound, but it's a critical component to developing lean muscle tissue and improving your health, fitness & body.
