Isn’t it that when your arms are getting bigger than your head you’ve completed the gym? Guess we’re almost there! But of course we keep on going tho!? • But on a more serious note tho, this is my physique at the moment, you might see that I’m a bit leaner, but I didn’t do a full mini-cut like I planned and that’s because I still want to get stronger. I think that doing what ever the hell I want, when I want it, is one of the reasons I'm still training after years with lots of love for fitness. I do encourage you to stick to the plan you make, but if you really find yourself getting more energy and more fun out of doing something else, just do that something else! Also, if you slow down your fat loss process, and don’t go too low in calories you can still make gains while doing so! #JumpOnTheGainTrain #FitnessInTheNameOfScience #BackOnYouTubeSoon

How many times are you training your muscle groups per week? ? • A study from 2007 found that people with training experience may make the most muscle gains by training muscle groups 2 a 3 times a week. But those who are new to the gym may make even faster gains when they train muscle groups more often like 3-4 times a week! Full-body workouts are also really efficient for building muscle, in the beginning especially! Why don’t you give it a try? ? • I actually made a YouTube video (name of video: How many reps, sets, and what frequency) about this study from Wernbom and colleagues a little back. This is interesting research! If you want to know more about frequency or how many reps and sets are optimal, you can check the video, link in bio! ???

Today, exactly one year ago I started this amazing journey on Instagram! With being consistent and with dedication we have grown to over 64.000 people and over 1.000.000 likes which is absolutely out of this world for me. ? I want to thank you for joining and for the incredible support. ???? But, let’s get ready because this last year was only the introduction, the real journey is about to start. ??? #nextlevelshit • • A year ago I could’ve never dreamt of anything like this. I really believe that if we are willing to work we can create the life of our dreams. Seriously, you’re maybe looking at this I think by yourself, that I had this or that, that helped me achieve my goals. But guys, there is nothing special about me. The thing is, I worked, I sacrificed things, I focused on what really mattered to me. And this way you can achieve your goals too, you only have to make the decision to go after what you want and that nothing will stop you. Even when it all seems hopeless, you go through it. Hard work and knowing where you want to go are the only things you need to create the life of your dreams! #Work hard, play hard. #youguysarefreakingawesome ???
