Who is your inspiration when it comes to training? Is it your training buddy or your trainer? A olympic athlete or just a couple of fitness personalities on instagram?
I get some of my inspiration from real life people in my life, but also through social media.
I check out great athletes on istagram to get inspiration and to see what they are up to.
I use my own Instagram almost like a training dairy. I post mostly stuff about my workouts, the weight I lift, the times I get, the food I eat, the form I have and how I feel…
But instagram also gives you all of those famous instagram “fitness chicks” with tons of followers, that isn’t that inspiring to look at. They are everywhere walking the streets of Gold Coast.
When I do check them out… they just doesn’t seem to do much training at all. They are simply just “good looking” chicks in expensive training gear pressing up their butts in my face on each and every picture.
Yes they might squat a little in the gym (to get a good insta photo from behind) but they are never sweaty and messy and they never seeme to leave the “warming up” weights. It’s all very dull, but yes their outfits looks great on them…. and their breast are very perky.
I meet many young girls in the gym that have a goal to look “fit” as their instagram stars. On that I say;
You don’t have to exercise to look like that, just cut some calories and buy some flattering gym wear.
You are NOT fit just because you are good looking in gym wear and know how to do a back squat at 30kg.
To be considered fit in my book you shall be able to squat 100% of your bodyweight. Do 20 pushups on the toes, hold a plank for 2 min. Complete a 3km run in 15min. Row 2000m in under 8min. Do at least 1 strict pull up. Box jump on a 60cm tall box. Be able to touch your toes when bending over. Do a deep squat wih a neutral/straight back.
If you meet what I stated above and you look like shit after a session, you are pretty fit.
