What an amazing competition @battleformiddleground ❤️
I had such a blast competing here again this year against some very talented girls. This years workouts were so damn good that I can’t say I didn’t enjoy even one. Some very tough programming though! But I loved every moment.
I managed to finish 16th overall which is not the greatest finish but this competition showed me exactly what I need to work on.
Thank you to the organisers for putting on such a great show this weekend because I truly enjoyed every bit of it. Also a massive thank you to the team of judges and all other volunteers who gave up their free time to help out at this event. Without you guys this event wouldn’t have been possible!
Big thank you to the best support team there is @motodoris@crosslavofit who have pushed me through each an every workout and put up with me throughout the day.

Arms dusted.... Always been a lagging body part for me. Concentrated arm days have been crucial for the development of my physique. In my opinion it’s just the same as any other lagging body part. If you lag on a body part you isolate and hammer it then rest plenty. Why are arms any different 🤷🏽♂️ That being said start of another week on this training cycle with two compound days approaching squats tomorrow, bench Wednesday. 😁
It's only been a week. People say it's impossible to already see a difference, but I do. Not a visible difference, but a physical and mental difference.
I have more energy, I'm sleeping better (something graveyard workers tend to have difficulty with), my breathing is getting better, and I feel more focused mentally.
🤷🏻♂️ Why cut it sort ?
Your abdominals are no different to any other muscle group, all muscle need training with exercises that meet the principles of Hypertrophy to grow and a caloric surplus. So first off don’t only train your abs during your “summer shreds” but train them when your looking like fluffy, full and strong in thickest of your bulk.
Secondly, train the to full range of Motion. Your rectus abdominis that being the front of your abs ( the lovely 6-pack ) is trained through spinal flexion and extension and the attach to the top of the hips to the base of the ribs. Most people when they train the abdominals miss out on a huge chunk of movement from the spinal extension because of their back smacking the floor before it ever had a chances to go into extension so it just ends up back into neutral. This abdominal pad (abdominal may) allows for that extension to occur due to it lifting the Lower back from the floor and forcing it into exstwhile leaving the hips in place, it also due to the way to angled keeps your head and shoulders on the floor creating a artificial arch allowing for that desired extension of the lower back and stretch of the abdominals.
🤯 Now don’t get me wrong the basic abdominal work just fine for most, but we are out here searching for the best exercises for the best Hypertrophic outcome, not just ok gains.
