Training BICEPS 💪
Weather or not you should train biceps is ultimately dependant on your physique goals. If you’re just looking to loose body fat, your best to stick with “multi joint” exercises (squats,dead’s, presses,etc.) as they require more muscular effort thus burn more calories. Many of these exercises indirectly work the biceps to some extent anyways. If you’re bodybuilding or specifically want to change size, strength, then train biceps! I firmly believe in a well rounded, strong physique where every body part is conditioned equally. My arms are a weak point so I’m always trying to bring them up to par with specific bicep training. Let me know... do you train the pipes? 💪🤔
CHOOSING A MED SCHOOL📚 on my stories you voted to find out about the long, LONG process. I finally have found out all my offers and I’m please to say I have three! The process began all the way back in August last year when I had to decide where I wanted to apply to so I could choose the exams I needed to take. I took the UCKAT and BMAT which test basic verbal and numerical reasoning skills, along with scientific knowledge and ethical judgement. 8 months later and I’m here about to make my decisions! Two offers are from London Unis and the other down on the coast. It’s a huge commitment as it’s 6 years full time, so my life is going to change a lot. I’m not sure how to feel about moving away, studying medicine, being away from my cats (🤮) and doing music away from home. Any one else going to uni in September - how do you feel about going? 😈 I think I’ve made my decision but I am going to take a day or two more to really think it through. Hang around for the end result! #uni#student#medschool#medicine#doctor#musician#music#london#university#model#modelling#alevels#makeup#mua#workout#hiit#gym#girlgains#training#weightlifting#strength#conditioning

Hit a sick upper body pull workout, then finished with conditioning.
Thoughts for Monday 💬
Surround yourself with people who make you better.
I was finishing up 6 sets on the Ski Erg when my buddy @lukestelling walked in. He saw that I was doing conditioning and wanted to jump in. His presence gave me the spark to hit ANOTHER 8 sets on top of what I had just done. Now I’m a big fan of the concept that you need to learn how to train and push yourself hard alone, but even the best athletes need an additional jolt to go to that next level sometimes.

💪Are your fitness goals challenging enough? Are they realistic?
2️⃣The second principle to setting proper fitness goals is to set challenging but realistic goals. You can find the entire guide to setting better fitness goals in the 🔗link in my bio @prokin_jamie
❗Most people will set goals that are too far out of reach or set unrealistic timelines that don't make sense for the magnitude of their goal. This is likely going to result in frustration and you may eventually give up on your goal.
❗On the other hand, goals that are so easy to achieve that they take practically no effort are fairly useless and will cause you to lose interest quickly.
🗝️The key is to find a balance and set goals that are moderately challenging but realistic for your specific circumstances.
📝If you are new to setting proper goals, I suggest that you start with easier-to-achieve goals and work your way towards more challenging goals.

Here's an exercise for you to try if you have a bosu ball available. Boxing is one of the few sports that require a high amount of both Type I and II muscle fibers. Along with having the stamina to go 3-12 rounds (depending on amateur and pro level), you also want to build explosiveness so can go home a lot sooner if possible lol. This upper body plyometric exercise should help with that! I'll continue posting more exercises and circuits as I get settled in on Instagram so be sure to follow. Thanks for checking me out 🥊

"Consistency is key" - as the saying goes - and this recipe has become a pretty consistent part of my life in recent months 🤣
As mentioned in my last post - I did my first ever calculated "cut" earlier this year.
I had always thought that eating every 4 hours was the key to obtaining a fitter and stronger physique.
It was only in January that I sat down and looked at my diet, and I realised that I was filling my body with food that, ultimately, wasn't fuelling me properly. It was carbohydrate laden, and my protein intake was about half of what it should have been; meaning that my training wasn't complemented fully by my diet.
The first meal that I decided to make a change to was my breakfast.
I'd often heard others saying how their overnight oats kept them full for hours - which I never thought would apply to me due to my old "diet plan."😆
I wanted to be able to incorporate protein into every meal - and so, found a recipe that allowed me to do just that with these overnight oats that I've had practically every morning since January. (Give or take the odd fry.😅) After completing my phase of caloric deficit in February- I enjoyed the recipe so much that I increased the base ingredients to match my maintenance, and now surplus calories, because it tastes absolutely amazing. A majority of the ingredients can be obtained from any shop, but I've found the @bulkpowders_ie Informed Whey Double Chocolate the best for adding to the ingredients due to its mixability and taste 😍
A handful of blueberries and some Greek yogurt (fat free or not, depending on personal requirements/preferences) complete the above ingredients 😁
I'll be putting a story up later as I make them for tomorrow and I'll list quantities of ingredients I use to put it all together 💁♂️
