Got a box from Fast Sportnutrition yesterday.. Now all the kitchen cabins are filled with supplements. It should be enough for a month or so.. Got my favourite smoothie too, this is soo tasty! Also got excited to play with light and shadows, so here is an backpic. Got an updated trainingprogram from Jari. It was hell. My back is so sore. This will do miracles.
In Tampere, finally! I thought that it would be warmer becouse hey, Tampere is south of Vaasa, but noooooo... Cold, windy and dark. Typical finnish winter. But I got all nostalgic and stuff when I walked down the street, the same street I´ve walked maaaany times before. Coffe and phone break.. Reeaally wanted something sweet to eat to, becouse I was so nervous for my meet with Jari, but Fitness Elin won this fight! Meeting with Jari, my trainer. We planned the year and I showed him my condition. So plans for this year is to start dieting in May and compete in September. So excited for my final year as an Junior! Let´s do this!! A quick meal, so quick that I just had time to take a picture of the paper. Then I jumped on a bus and went to Fast headquarters.. I talked to Taru at Fast about future plans and the sponsoring. It was so fun to meet her and when I left I got a big bag of new products and fast-pants, belt and shirt. Took the bus back and fast fast fast to the gym where my friend was waiting for me ( I was almost an hour to late) I was so happy to see my friend Roosa! It had been far to long. Then we went training, I trained back and Roosa helped me. Got a GREAT backworkout, it felt like my back was shaking afterwards. Something quick to eat and then Roosa gave me a lift to the train station. There I realized something horrible.. The train was late. There is nothing more irritating than when I have to wait. ( except when people are leaving weights at the gym ;) ) More waiting in Seinäjoki.. I was so proud of my packing, I get better every time. I have never had this little with me to a day in Tampere before! More waiting in the train.. All trains was late on my way home. SO ANGRY! Finally back to my love, he was so excited to test out the new proteinbars I got.. Went to bed at 10pm.. Slept 12 hours btw. So tired..
Instead of pouting your lips you should now just look suprised! And why is this importent/interesting/glad news you wonder? Well because I have already done this for several years!! I think Taylor Swift took my facial expression and just made it prettier....
Of course you have worked hard for this day, waited for it, mayby for many years but I hope that the focus not will be on that but on the importent thing, to enjoy the competing. In april some are going to compete in Fitness Classic and I wish them all good luck and I hope they get a great day! I also hope that they are looking forward to the competing and the thrill to be on the stage not the "princess day" when they just get to look pretty.
Yesterday I was also at a meeting with other bloggers and now we can proudly present to you all that I´m going to move my blog (AGAIN!) to a portal that will be opening 14.2. My blog-address is going to change but everything else will be the same! Accept for greater pics of course ;) Also got my first Goodiebag, felt a little like Christmas to open up the bag and find the little gifts. Gotta save the candy for later but I tried the hand creme today and it was great!
How do you do your squats?In todays society a big butt is fashion. And the big butt should come from several sets of squats. But if you dont vary your squats or training you can plateau wich means you're not responding to training as you used to. This is something you wanna avoid and I wanna show you some varieties that you can try on your next session! The pistol squat. This exercise is properly done without a chair undernith so that the but can go all the way to the floor. But if you´re not that strong in your legs or this exercise is new to you the chair can help you along the way. Just put one leg up, sit down and stand up using only one leg. Keep your upperbody as straight as you can, chest and chin up! You can also use a wall to support your squat. Smith squat with rubberband. Put the rubberband a little bit over your knees, put your feet in a sumosquat position and squat! Focus on pressing your knees out so that they are pointing in the same direction as your toes. This burns! Box squat. Here you can vary your feet position, wider;more contact to the glutes and hamstrings, narrow; more contact to quads. You can do this exercise explosivly by sitting down on the chair and jump/pop up. That was 3 different ways to do your squat. If you still wanna do regular squats I recommend to use these to to warm up or train on your technique. I usually tip a littlebit to forward when I squat so by standing against a wall so that my nose almost touches the wall and squatting there forces my body to stand upright. Another varity that´s less scary is if you stand against the squating rack so you can support with your hands. As you see in the pic to the left I use my hands to measure where I stand. Two hands is for beginners, one hand is more difficult and no hands is hardcore! :) Until next time, do your squats!
The weekend after Christmas we went to Vasa for some shopping. Found one pair of training shoes on sale. I bought them for competition prep when I'll be doing a lot of sprints and jumps. Can't wait to use them!! We also went training and an awesome thing had changed at Wasa Sports club! Arnold happened! What a great motivation to train with him on the wall. If you people want to do the same you can do it FOR FREE tomorrow Tuesday 6.1! Wasa sports club has a open house where you can try out their classes or train in the gym. Are you in town tomorrow you should definitely go visit the place! Also last Friday me and Christoffer got to celebrate our one year anniversary! We trained legs and went out for dinner. Didn't get my camera out before I'd destroyed my meal. It was a salad and it wad really good!! And we got dessert afterwards :) Tomorrow we will return to Vasa because school starts again. It will be nice to get back to routines, a little vacation did good but I´m ready to get back to reality! Last I´ll trow you a little form update: this body benched 2x 67,5kg this weekend wich means that my strenght is slowly coming back! 6 kg from my personal record!
These are from last week after a leg session at wasa sports club. I want to show you these pics because I feel that everybody is just posting pics where there in shape and prepping for competition. Nobody is seeing the cold truth. The offseason shape. I'm pretty happy with this shape, I'm not that boney anymore. I dont look the same all year round. I don't necessarily look like I'm even competing when I'm wearing normal clothes. The plan for next year is falling into place now. At ifbb.fi you can find the competition calendar and I've decided to compete next year in fall. Next year will be my last competition year as a junior and I think it will be a season filled with competitions! Until next time, train hard!
No more cake for me! Haha. But seriously tho. NO MORE THIRD PLACES!
