Protein Supplements by @trainwithcarsen _ It is commonly believed that protein supplements are required to build muscle. People believe that now that they’re on a weight training plan, they need to go out and buy some protein powder and a blender bottle to go along with their program. This is NOT the case. _ Protein supplements act as a dietary supplement for insufficient protein intake. ☑️Meaning, if you are struggling to consume enough protein through your regular diet, protein supplements are used to help fill in the gap by adding more protein to your diet. That’s it. Plain and simple. _ Now, while they may not be magical or required, they can certainly be beneficial. As a fitness professional, tons of my clients struggle to consume enough protein in a day. People just aren’t into slamming chicken breasts and tuna all day long. Not to mention, people are busy, where do you get the time to sit down and eat a good meal several times a day? ⚡️This is why I recommend protein supplements because it is a quick and efficient way to add more protein into your day to help you reach your daily protein goal (which we know is crucial to any fitness goal). _ P.S - if you notice that you’re struggling to consume enough protein right now through your regular diet -💢head over to Prozis.com and use the discount code ‘CarsenPZ’ to get 10% off your order. _____________ #squats#deadlift#armday#chestworkout#fitness#fit#fitnessmotivation#gym#gymmotivation#gymshark#abs#absworkout#gains#weightlifting#bodybuilding#fitnessnutrition#diet#dietplan#gymtips#fitnesstips#exercise#exercisemotivation#sportsnutrition#muscle#chestday#legday#exceedyourself#prozis#prozisteam#sportperformance

5 Tips To Build A Strong Back by @trainwithcarsen _ INCORPORATE ROWS 3-4X/WEEK⚡️-you simply cant row enough. Rows are the staple of back exercises and should BE incorporated several times into your weekly routine. Work in different variations. _ BUILD UP YOUR PULL-UPS⚡️- No you don’t suck at pull-ups, you just haven’t taken the time to improve. They’re a very challenging movement, but with great challenge comes great reward. Build up your pull-ups to build a bulletproof back. _ STRONG DEADLIFT EQUALS STRONG BACK⚡️- The deadlift is a powerhouse movement that is going to work every muscle on your back. The stronger you get your deadlift, the stronger your back will become. Aim to get stronger with your deadlift on a weekly basis. _ PULL FROM ALL ANGLES ⚡️- Your Back is comprised of multiple different muscle groups with varying locations and attachment points. To work your back to the fullest, you need to target it from different angles. High-to-low pulls, low-to-High pulls, and everything in between. It’s a game of angles. _ AIM TO INNITIATE FROM YOUR BACK MUSCLES⚡️- Just because you are doing exercises intended to strengthen your back, does not necessarily mean you’re effectively training your back. Loosen up your grip and start to work on initiating the movement from your back muscles, then work to keep the tension on the muscle through the full set. _____________ #squats#deadlift#armday#chestworkout#fitness#fit#fitnessmotivation#gym#gymmotivation#gymshark#abs#absworkout#gains#weightlifting#bodybuilding#fitnessnutrition#diet#dietplan#gymtips#fitnesstips#exercise#exercisemotivation#sportsnutrition#muscle#chestday#legday#exceedyourself#prozis#prozisteam#sportperformance

Upper Body Mass Builders by @trainwithcarsen _ The key to building a stronger and bigger upper body is nailing down your compound lifts. These multi-joint movements need to be the heart and soul of your workout program. _ Aim to incorporate these upper body compound lifts into your routine 2X/week. With each session, you should be focusing on improving your form to establish a stronger mind-muscle connection. You must also focus on getting stronger with these lifts by increasing the resistance load or adding more sets. Remember, progressive overload is key. _ If you’re currently struggling to gain muscle in the gym and you’re ready to make a change - 💢send me a direct message today and we’ll see if you’re a good fit for my 1-on-1 Online Fitness Coaching Program. ______________ #squats#deadlift#armday#chestworkout#fitness#fit#fitnessmotivation#gym#gymmotivation#gymshark#abs#absworkout#gains#weightlifting#bodybuilding#fitnessnutrition#diet#dietplan#gymtips#fitnesstips#exercise#exercisemotivation#sportsnutrition#muscle#chestday#legday#exceedyourself#prozis#prozisteam#sportperformance

5 Tips To Build Bigger Arms by @trainwithcarsen _ Forget about how heavy the weight is, focus on squeezing the muscle⚡️- look, your body doesn’t know how much weight you’re throwing around. Your body only recognizes tension. Leave your ego at the door and use a weight where you can actively squeeze the muscle throughout. _ Control the negative⚡️- the eccentric contraction(the lowering phase) of a lift is CRUCIAL to building muscle. Stop worrying just about flinging the weight up, and start to control the negative. Take 3-seconds to lower the weight back to the starting position. _ Stop annihilating Arms on 1-day⚡️- doing “Arm day” once a week is not the most effective approach to building bigger arms. Rather than destroying your arms with every exercise in the book on one day, add in arm work 2-3x/week to continuously stimulate muscle protein synthesis and progress your lifts. _ High rep training for the pump⚡️- if you’ve been solely focused on curling heavy weight for lower repetitions, man, you’re leaving a TON of muscle on the table. High rep training is an excellent tool to pump lots of blood into your arms, creating metabolic stress (key process to stimulate muscle growth). Lower the weight and pump out 20-reps. You’ll feel this one. _ Work in different exercise variations⚡️- you’re limiting your potential by not expanding your horizons. Simple bicep curls and Tricep extensions will only get you so far. Start to work in different variations to start to target the different muscle heads. Change up your angles to shift the tension. If you want big arms, you need to fully work the arms. _____________ #squats#deadlift#armday#chestworkout#fitness#fit#fitnessmotivation#gym#gymmotivation#gymshark#abs#absworkout#gains#weightlifting#bodybuilding#fitnessnutrition#diet#dietplan#gymtips#fitnesstips#exercise#exercisemotivation#sportsnutrition#muscle#chestday#legday#exceedyourself#prozis#prozisteam#sportperformance

4 Keys To Building Strong Glutes by @trainwithcarsen _ BRIDGES⚡️- are the most effective exercise to build your glutes. You simply cannot do enough bridges. However, make sure you are progressing this exercise, just like you would anything else. Simple floor bridges for sets of 15 won’t cut it for long. You’ll need to start adding more resistance to assure you are continuously challenging the glutes. _ STRENGTH EXERCISES⚡️- the glutes play a critical role in your major strength movements (deadlift, lunges, squats). By constantly improving your strength movements, your glutes will continue to grow stronger as well. However, make sure you are not strictly relying on these movements to build strong glutes. They’re not enough to get the full job done. _ LATERAL BAND WORK⚡️- too many people are completely ignoring the lateral plane of motion! You need to train laterally! Especially if you want to build your glutes. Grab yourself a resistance band and start to work in side steps, clams, and leg raises to target that glute medius, for more well rounded glutes. _ TRAIN EXPLOSIVE⚡️- it’s time to get moving. The glutes are the powerhouse of the lower body and need to be challenged in an explosive manner. Take yourself outside your comfort zone and start to train for power - box jumps, sprints, power cleans. Trust me, your glutes will be sore the next day after going through these explosive movements. _____________ #squats#deadlift#armday#chestworkout#fitness#fit#fitnessmotivation#gym#gymmotivation#gymshark#abs#absworkout#gains#weightlifting#bodybuilding#fitnessnutrition#diet#dietplan#gymtips#fitnesstips#exercise#exercisemotivation#sportsnutrition#muscle#chestday#legday#exceedyourself#prozis#prozisteam#sportperformance

Building Meals by @trainwithcarsen _ When it comes to building your meals, it should not be a guessing game. Aimlessly stacking food on to your plate is not a smart approach. Rather, understanding portion sizes by using your own hand🖐 will help you to build meals that suit your fitness goals. _ The hand portion guide is a simple tactic that can be easily applied when building your meals. Simply use the four metrics listed in the info graphic (fist, palm, cupped-hand, thumb) when building your meals. Now, you can adjust these based off of your specific fitness goal. For instance, if your goal is to gain weight, you can add an extra serving of carbs, and/or add in another palm size of protein to add more protein to your meal. Whatever it may be, you can easily make adjustments through the hand portion guide. Simple and effective. _ If you’re struggling to make progress in the gym and you’re ready to start building your ultimate physique, 💢send me a direct message today and we can talk. _ The hand portion guide is a tool created by @precisionnutrition _____________ #squats#deadlift#armday#chestworkout#fitness#fit#fitnessmotivation#gym#gymmotivation#gymshark#abs#absworkout#gains#weightlifting#bodybuilding#fitnessnutrition#diet#dietplan#gymtips#fitnesstips#exercise#exercisemotivation#sportsnutrition#muscle#chestday#legday#exceedyourself#prozis#prozisteam#sportperformance

Rep Ranges by @trainwithcarsen _ LOW REPS (1-5): This lower rep range is best used for strength training. ✅The goal here is to move the heaviest load possible, with strict form, from point A to point B. With strength training, you want to focus on the big compound movements that are going to allow you to recruit multiple muscle groups, to move heavy weight. The goal with strength training is to get stronger. _ MODERATE REP RANGE (6-12): This is one of the more common rep ranges used in the gym by men and women looking to increase muscle size. ✅The 6-12 rep range is used to stimulate an increase in muscle cell size, this is referred to as hypertrophy. _ HIGH REPS (12-25): ✅The endurance rep range can be great for improving muscle endurance, meaning, the duration under which the muscle remains actively engaged. Working with a higher rep range also enhances blood flow to the muscle, known as the “pump”. This creates metabolic stress and ultimately leads to muscle growth. This rep range is trained with lighter weights, allowing you to extend the duration of the working set. ________ #squats#deadlift#armday#chestworkout#fitness#fit#fitnessmotivation#gym#gymmotivation#gymshark#abs#absworkout#gains#weightlifting#bodybuilding#fitnessnutrition#diet#dietplan#gymtips#fitnesstips#exercise#exercisemotivation#sportsnutrition#muscle#chestday#legday#alphalete#athlean#athlete#sportperformance
