Fats don't make you fat! Consuming a ton of calories and lacking in physical activity is why you gain weight.
I have tried many diets and all have their pros and cons. The diet I have found the best in many ways, is one where you consume greater proportion of your calories, from fats and protein. Fats can help you achieve optimal body composition because your body requires a decent amount of fat to stay lean and function well. How this is possible:
1. "Fats" make you feel full. When paired with a nice portion of protein, fat can lead to greater satisfaction from eating, curbing hunger and cravings. Healthy fats help you lose fat by improving metabolism, balancing hormones and eliminating constant cravings.
2. Increased Muscle
Having more "beneficial fats" in your diet produces muscle gain with training, as it supports hormone balance and recovery from intense exercise.
3. Easier Fat Loss
It’s well accepted that eating some fat is necessary if you want to lose fat. It was a big mistake to go low-fat for fat loss, because people tended to replace natural fats with carbs, while food manufacturers replaced fat with sugar, leading to a huge increase in nutrient-poor calories that the body stores as fat.
4. Better Reproductive Health
Fat is critical for reproductive health in both men and women as it’s used to manufacture hormones and improves "gene signaling" that regulates hormone balance.
For women, not eating enough fat is a common cause of infertility, while eating the wrong fats increases complications from PMS and menopause. For men, lack of good fats reduces testosterone and other androgen hormones that are critical for reproductive health. “Good” fat intake allows for higher androgens, better reproductive health, stronger libido, better athletic performance and lower body fat.
5. Better Brain Function & Mood
Make sure you get adequate DHA and saturated fat to provide the raw materials needed for optimal brain function.

Excuse the moody face but I was actually happy after yesterday after an international chest day!!! Cables are broken at my gym so I had to do a lot of close grip pressing.
As I said before if anyone wants to get a copy of my program just follow my fb page and msg me on there..... did I mention it was free 😉 all about sharing the knowledge.... plus I have a 4 day a week program for females.... again, if you want it, let me know. 🤘🏻😝🤘🏻
No one defines you. You define yourself. Embrace who you are and be aware that what you see is not necessary what others see. Learn to be fine with that as what others "think" they know of you is highly irrelevant. Do not seek validation from anyone, happiness comes from within. An unhappy soul cannot wish anything good for anyone. Choose friends wisely and know that those who see the negative and the bad in everything will see the same in you. Choose those who always see the sun first rather than the clouds. And surround yourself with those that are aligned with your universe. We create our own reality, and we choose the life we live. I choose life,happiness and peace. #lawofattraction ✌️
Time for my weekly shock treatment 😝
20min EMS training to fire up those deep muscle fibres - @impulsefit_studio
Start the day by making a deal with yourself. Today, get out of your comfort zone and face one of your challenges. Give yourself just one day to keep that promise- it's only 24hours. If you can achieve something today, your motivation will grow and it will be one step of many to come. - - - - -

Backday done mainly based on DEADLIFT to grow this fucking back.
In this moment, I used to work with 2 seconds of isometric contraction at the middle of the movement: I really feel my back 💥
So yesterday I've done 405lbs/180kg X4 ( with the 2secs of isometric )
Try this next time and give me your opinion 💪🏻
Have a great day everybody 🙂
It's not about how much you can lift. It's about how well you can lift it. Remember slow and steady and squeeze once those muscles are flexed to increase overall blood flow to muscle group. 💪🏽💪🏽 Remember to do it for YOU and only YOU! 💯💯

Happy Tuesday you guys, here's a bicep tip for you guys to try. Next time you do DB curls, try sitting down. I guarantee that you won't be able to do as much weight as you usually would standing up, but you'll feel the biceps a lot more BC your core is taken out of the occasion. No swinging, no jerking, let the muscle do the working all on it own. The point to target the biceps (short head). There's no point of doing this exercise if the shoulder are going to be involved. I a 4 set superset of this with reverse barbell curls which targets the long head of the biceps. So many people lag in the area too. I'll do a tip vid on the soon. But overall try this exercise out you guys, and give me feed back on how it works out for you. 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯🔥💪👊🙌🏾 #bodybuilding#aesthetics#forever#inspiration#motivation#dreamchasers#pumpchasers#NPc#Classic#physique#grind#for#life#ambition#IFBB#they#dont#wanna#see#you#winning#team#no#days#off#me#vs#me
I swear I don't only do arms 😂
Something I learned from my old powerlifting coach in high school: take an exercise and pyramid up until you hit the 50s, hit each increment for 10 reps. Tonight me and @hectorjimenezii did this with alternating dumbbell curls and almost died 💀Ended up being 380 reps. I love using this technique for RDL, shoulder press, curls, and shrugs 🤘🏼
