💥Building Muscle💥
.

Great info in this post by @kruckifitness 👌🏼
.
When trying to build muscle, simply doing specific things more will be very beneficial along the way. Here’s 4 things I would try to do more to make ore muscle building progress.
-
(1) MORE OVERLOAD: You need to be progressively overloading consistently if you want your muscle to grow. This can be done through the process of progressive overload. Try to increase your training volume weekly by adding reps, sets or weight.
-
(2) MORE CALORIES: You gotta eat more to gain more muscle. Make sure you’re in a caloric surplus, or you simply won’t make any good progress. Aim to eat 16-18 calories per pound of bodyweight.
-
(3) MORE WATER: You need to drink plenty of water. Doing so will help aid in muscle recovery and also aid in digestion. Aim to drink 2/3 of your bodyweight (lbs) in ounces.
-
(4) MORE SLEEP: Sleep is when the muscle really grows. If you don’t sleep enough, you’re decreasing the time for your muscles to recover. Try to get 7-9 hours/night.
-
Which one do you need to do more? Let me know in the comments 👇🏼

...and you haven’t ordered one of the new shirts from the @teammihaly merch site I really don’t know what you are waiting on.

Yesterday was Friday, so you probably got paid. Go. Go now. I don’t have enough followers to link shit so like ... go to @jmihalyfit or @teammihaly page!

There is an alternative bottom logo (instead of TM it’s a bicep flex). You DO NOT have to be on Team Mihaly to order a shirt, I’m just putting that out there.

The options are there for you.
Complete with an ANABOLIC ADVISORY and plenty of room for the lats 🙌🏾
I need all my shirts to be cut exactly like this one. 
Catch me in ALL TM EVERYTHING at the Arnold. Red and black is the mood 😤

muscle is actually built OUTSIDE the gym. 🤯

sounds a little counterintuitive but it’s true! when we train, we intentionally break down muscle fibers (aka we’re in a catabolic state). to actually make gains, we need those muscle fibers to RECOVER! (which is why everyone preaches staying anabolic throughout the rest of your day)

the best way to do this is to 1) eat enough calories to not only REPAIR the torn down muscle fibers but also REBUILD new ones; 2) take REST days; & 3) practice active RECOVERY.

personally i take 2 rest days each week & i *almost* always stretch & foam roll after i lift. i also get monthly massages but i wouldn’t say that’s necessary (i know it doesn’t fit in everyone’s budget — for me it’s a form of self-care). by giving your body the calories, rest, & recovery it needs, your muscles are going to respond how you want — AKA GAINZ. 💪🏽 would you be interested in a post explaining my stretching/foam rolling routine?

Good morning and happy FRIDAY!☀️ I woke up this morning feeling amazing! I think I’m finally catching up with my sleep after the crazy week last week!

I’m headed to the gym for a leg day! BUT FIRST... I’ve got to have my coffee! I don’t usually use pre-workout, so this is my kick off caffeine!

Protein coffee gives me more than just caffeine, which is why I drink it! I’m someone who can’t eat right when I get up, but I also don’t like to workout on an empty stomach.

I only add a half of a scoop of protein to my coffee and it gives me about 15g of protein, enough to get my body into fat burning mode for when I workout!

This routine is what has been working for me, so I thought I’d share!! Plus, who doesn’t love tasty coffee every morning!

I hope you all have an amazing Friday! ✨

Ya know how people like to compare the human body to a machine? Well.

We are not machines.

Our joints adapt, they don’t wear down (read that again).
.
We don’t just use what’s in our stomach (or “gas tank”) as fuel - we also use stored glucose and fat.
.
As humans, our brains are much more complex than input = output.
.
There is not one way to move, instead, movement is unique to the individual.

Analogies work sometimes. Except when they’re misguided and encourage the fear that we will “wear out” if we use our bodies too much.

And can a machine pose like this? Okay, probably. I don’t know how y’all twist like this without grimacing - color me impressed.

INFO BOMB 💣 🤓 
Anabolic vs. catabolic .
.
I really think if you understand this concept, you’ll greatly increase your body’s natural ability to burn fat & preserve muscle. To me, understanding this is EVERYTHING for getting long term, sustainable results! .
.
I’ll break it down & keep it simple! .
.
Your body has two modes of operation: .
.
CATABOLIC: The body is storing fat & using muscle tissue for fuel...
And
ANABOLIC: The body is burning fat for fuel & preserving lean muscle tissue.
.
.
Obviously, it’s optimal to be in an anabolic state as much as possible throughout the day. The key to staying in this state is protein. 🥩🍗
.
.
I like to think of the metabolism like a wood burning stove. To keep the fire stoked & burning hot, it needs a continuous supply of fuel. 🔥 That’s the job of protein: to stoke the metabolism & keep the body in a fat burning state. .
.
If your body receives enough protein (amino acids) throughout the day to preserve & feed lean muscle tissue, it signals to the body that you’re getting enough nutrients and that it’s okay to start letting go of fat storages. .
.
That’s why it’s so important to get a source of lean protein with each & every meal, every 2-3 hours. ⛽️ If you struggle with getting all your meals in a meal replacement protein like @1stphorm Level-1 really helps! I usually have mostly whole food meals every day & 1 Level-1. That balance works for me! .
Do you struggle with diet? You can always reach out to me if you have any questions. I’m here to help! 💙

I love to hit delts haaard! 💪🏼
.
When I first started this whole lifting thing big delts were always a goal of mine. That goal has never changed.
.
Ladies- if having nice arms is a goal of yours make sure that you 1️⃣ have the proper nutrition to support muscle growth and 2️⃣ hit all three areas of your shoulders hard! 🤟🏼

Random Fact... I drink my protein immediately after my workout to ensure I catch my #Anabolic window.

The metabolic window is a term used in strength training to describe the 30-minute period after exercise during which nutrition can shift the body from a catabolic state to an anabolic one. Specifically, it is during this period that the intake of protein and carbohydrates can aid in the increase of muscle mass.

31 million people do this. Are you one of them?

What am I referring to?

Skipping Breakfast!

Maybe you work early in the morning or you’re getting kids ready for school or you just don’t like to eat that early.

I get it.

Personally, I’m the last person. Eating a big breakfast at 6am before a workout doesn’t sit well with my stomach. However, I can’t function through a workout, work or studying without having something.

Not only does an empty stomach mess with my mental clarity and ability to push myself through a workout, it’s not helping me reach my goals.

Instead of aiding in my metabolism and helping my body burn body fat, it’s doing the opposite. My body is preserving fat for energy instead of burning it!

Because a big meal doesn’t sit well with my stomach, I keep it simple. I have protein coffee and a small carb based food, like fruit.

The protein helps me retain lean muscle. The more lean muscle I have the better my metabolism will be, thus, allowing my body to burn fat easier and build muscle.

If you are someone who is skipping breakfast or are struggling to burn body fat or gain lean muscle, protein coffee might be your solution!

If you have any questions about protein intake and how it can help you reach your goal, send me a message and let’s chat!

*puts on a sweater & scarf* *sits outside with iced coffee*

My life choices make just about as much sense as the weather this week, but hey, it works 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
But I didn’t wanna chat with you about the weather or my questionable decisions, I wanted to talk about what my go-to coffee is right now ☕️
.
Guys, I used to be the girl at Starbs ordering a venti vanilla bean frap with extra whip & then telling myself that it “doesn’t count because it’s coffee.”
.
That coffee alone was over 500 calories with at least 76g of carbs (73g of it being sugar 😅) & I’m not saying never order your vanilla bean frap, but those calories do add up if it is becoming your every morning drink

OKAY DANIELLE THEN WHAT SHOULD I DRINK?!
.
I have a more macro-friendly coffee recipe for you (that I’m actually addicted to. I can’t go a day without it lol):
.
🍁 brew some coffee (I use Folgers decaf sensitive stomach)
🍁 to make it iced, I let it cool down before pouring it over ice.
🍁 if you want it hot, just pour it on in your cup
🍁 add a splash of unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
🍁 add 1/3-1/2 scoop of @1stphorm CTC phormula-1 protein
🍁 use a milk frother to mix
.
It is SO easy, SO yummy, & SO affordable!! .
Anddd it helps with your progress!
.
(Whatttt?!)
.
Adding protein to your coffee helps put (or keep) your body in an anabolic state. Being in an anabolic state means your body is building muscle rather than breaking it down (which I don’t think any of us want!!) .
So give it a try & believe me, you’ll be addicted too! 🤪

Where are all of my bedtime sweet tooth people at? This one is for you!
.
After dinner, I crave for something sweet! I bet you do too! Chocolate, ice cream, cake... the list goes on and on!
.
What if you could fix your after dinner sweet tooth with something that tastes identical to the real deal, without feeling guilty? What if it could also help you reach your goals by helping you burn fat and preserve lean muscle?
.
Having about 20g of protein at night will kick your body into the fat burning mode for about 3 hours! This is perfect because it cuts down on the about of time at night that our body is in a catabolic, or fat storing state!
.
Level-1 is perfect to help with this because it won’t cause that bloated or gassy feeling because it’s processed at a very low temperature!
.
You’ve got to give this protein ice cream a try! I promise it won’t disappoint! Mint ice cream is hands down my favorite ice cream ever and I can have it every night and get some more protein in to help me hit my goals🙌🏼
.
🍪1/4 cup almond milk
🍪 1/2 banana
🍪 1 scoop mint ice cream sandwich protein
🍪 8g cheesecake jello mix
.
Blend and enjoy! It blends so smooth and totally helps with the sweet tooth!
.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

A lot of people avoid the deadlift because they think it's dangerous, but it's actually a very safe exercise (if you learn proper form first, before increasing weights AS YOU SHOULD do with any exercise).⁣
⠀⁣
When you perform the deadlift, you don't need someone to spot you, and if you can't handle the weight, you can just drop the weights, compared to exercises like the Bench Press where you'd drop the weight on yourself if you just let it go. ⁣
⠀⁣
As with any exercise, ALWAYS focus on proper form before trying to increase weights on the deadlift, and you'll be fine.⁣
⠀⁣
There are many different variations of the deadlift, with different benefits!⁣

Snacking. Should we do it or not?

This is by far one of the most asked questions I get. “What kind of snacks should I be eating, when I eat them? “What constitutes as a healthy snack?

What’s challenging about this is that it depends on your personal goals. It also depends on your macros, if you track them.

Personally, I snack a lot. So I wanted to give you some ideas/ tips when it comes to snacking. These are just things that work best for me. Again, everyone is going to different, so if you have specific questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

1️⃣ Protein is key. Protein tends to keep people full longer. This will also help keep our body in an anabolic (fat burning, muscle storing) mode.
2️⃣ I like to pair fruit and almonds together. The almonds have health fats and proteins and the fruit is my carb source.
3️⃣ Sweet or salty? If I’m feeling the sweets, I like to have dried fruit or regular fruit. Salty? My go to is pickles.
4️⃣ Protein shakes or a protein bar are my go-to snacks when I’m in a rush or on the go. Specifically a whey protein concentrate, which mimics a whole food source. (I’ll usually pair a shake with an apple to balance things out)
5️⃣ I like to eat either a snack or a meal every 3-ish hours. This is because for most people, it takes your body about 3 hours to digest the food. This way I can stay anabolic for more time throughout the day. Helping me ready my goals.

Those are just a few of my ideas and tips when it comes to snacking! What are your go to snacks?

If you have any questions about what snacks might help you reach your goals, reach out! I’d be happy to help in any way I can!

Das „Anabole Fenster“ ist einer der meist verbreiteten Fitnessmythen.
Doch worum geht es dabei überhaupt?🤔
.
👉Die Hypothese:
Während deines Trainings verbraucht dein Körper Energie aus den Glykogenspeichern und je nach Belastung werden die kontraktilen Strukturen deiner Muskelfasern beschädigt. Um deine Speicher schnell wieder aufzufüllen und die Regeneration deiner Muskeln zu beschleunigen, solltest du bis max. 45 Minuten🕘 nach dem Training Kohlenhydrate (KH) und Proteine zu dir nehmen, da die Aufnahme dieser Nährstoffe in dieser Zeit besonders hoch ist. Dieser kurze Zeitraum nach dem Training beschreibt das „Anabole Fenster“.
.
⛔☝️STOPP! Lass dich nicht stressen. Auch wenn es logisch erscheint, funktioniert unser Organismus anders:
Ja, dein gespeichertes Glykogen wird geringer und deine Muskelfasern je nach Intensität und Dauer beschädigt. Auch benötigt dein Körper danach KH und Proteine, dennoch brauchst du dir keinen besonderen Zeitdruck💆‍♀️ zu machen.
.
Aus der aktuellen Studienlage📖 geht hervor, dass die Proteinsynthese nach der Belastung bis zu 24 Stunden erhöht ist. Zudem ist die Aufnahme von KH und Proteinen ins Blut im „Anabolen Fenster“ schwer zu erreichen. Der Weg vom Magen-Darm-Trakt ins Blut kann bis zu einer Stunde dauern kann. Während dieser Zeit hättest du das “Anabolic Window” laut Mythos bereits verpasst. Dieses „Fenster“ gibt es dennoch, nur ist es viel länger als der Mythos besagt. Es beschreibt den Zeitraum zwischen der katabolen Phase und der vollständigen Regeneration. Je nach Belastung und Trainingsstand kann die Regeneration auch mal länger dauern.
.
Auf deinen Post-Workout-Shake🥛 brauchst du trotzdem nicht verzichten, wenn dieser zu deiner Routine gehört und dir hilft, deine Tagesration Protein abzudecken. Wichtig für deinen Kalorien- und Nähstoffbedarf ist nicht der genaue Zeitpunkt, sondern die gleichmäßige Verteilung über den Tag.
.
🤓Fazit: Der Mythos bleibt ein Mythos. Trainiere fleißig weiter und achte auf deine Ernährung!
Was sagst du zum „anabolen Fenster“? Kennst du viele, die sich daran orientieren?

⠀
Здесь вы можете проследить как проходила моя беременность и восстановление🌷
⠀
Работая  с моими любимыми клиентами «в положении» ,(спортсменочки Вас тоже люблю 😘😜),хочется обратить внимание на выбор витамин ,ведь не зря на рынке держится и постоянно расширяется такой ассортимент витаминно-минеральных комплексов☝️
⠀
Вы можете тратить большие деньги ,заказывая на #айхерб (полюбившийся всеми,кстати просто почитайте ,что такое натуральные витамины и все станет ясно ) #солгар ,а проблемы сохранятся.

Повторюсь про волшебные эффекты фолиевой кислоты на этапе планирования и вынашивания беременности.
⠀
Этот витамин считается одним из важных при планировании беременности:
⠀
▫️он отвечает за полноценное созревание здоровой яйцеклетки,
▫️процесс полноценной имплантации,
▫️способствует правильному развитию плода, формируя нервную трубку.
⠀
⚠️Не стоит забывать, что около 17% женщин страдают неусваяемостью данного витамина.
⠀
👍🏻Но, медицина с каждым днем идет вперед и открытие фолиевой кислоты 4-го поколения решила этот вопрос.
⠀
🔥Сохраните себе продукты  питания с высоким содержанием фолиевой кислоты, которые стоит включить в свой рацион:
⠀
✔️шпинат, щавель
✔️салат, брокколи
✔️орехи
✔️гречка
✔️овсяная крупа

LIFT HEAVY TO LOSE FAT⁣
⁣
⁣
Ok everyone - you’ve probably heard by now it’s OK to lift heavy for fat loss. But why is it important?⁣
⁣
⁣
For one, heavy lifting is a major contributor to growth hormone release - the hormone MOST responsible for mobilizing fat for fuel.⁣
⁣
⁣
To boot, when you’re strong, you can workout at a greater intensity - and that means you’ll burn more calories during your workouts and be able to push harder!⁣
⁣
⁣
Heavy lifting is also a key aspect of lifting for muscle growth. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism and the easier it will be to lose body fat.⁣

PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD⁣
⁣
⁣
⁣
A common goal for strength-training programs is to increase or to maintain one's physical strength or muscle mass. In order to achieve more strength, as opposed to maintaining current strength capacity, muscles need to be stressed in such a way that triggers the body's natural, adaptive response to new demands placed on it.⁣
⁣
⁣
Progressive overload not only stimulates muscle hypertrophy, but it also stimulates the development of stronger and denser bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Progressive overload also incrementally increases blood flow to exercised regions of the body and stimulates more responsive nerve connections between the brain and the muscles involved.⁣
⁣
⁣
Conversely, decreased use of the muscle results in incremental loss of mass and strength, known as muscular atrophy.  Sedentary people often lose a pound or more of muscle annually.⁣
⁣
⁣
The loss of 10 pounds of muscle per decade is one consequence of a sedentary lifestyle. The adaptive processes of the human body will only respond if continually called upon to exert greater force to meet higher physiological demands.⁣

Sometimes in life, you gotta call an audible
-
After my shred, I went to Puerto Rico, took on a new day job, cut my lifting down to only 3 days a week (because I needed it), and have been going to yoga class 3x a week.....all while letting too much sugar creep into my diet
-
I sincerely believe that yoga is therapeutic. It’s a way to heal. It builds focus and your self-awareness. And it’s a way for bodybuilders to work on “functional” strength and isometric endurance
-
My intuition kicked in
-
I realized my physique was getting soft, and just wasn’t staying anabolic
-
I love how my body feels from lifting weights more than anything in this world. I love sculpting my body wherever I want. So I’m giving my body what it wants, more lifting days
-
Day 3 of no sugar, fruit included. Sticking to low glycemic carbs for a while
-
Yoga is still in the mix, probably just once a week for now
-
Know your body. Listen to it. It doesn’t lie
-
People will lie to you. Your mind will sometimes lie to you. However... your body, your intuition, your inner voice, that gut instinct... will never lie to you
-
Gotta love the journey

Peppermint Protein Hot Cocoa☃️
.
One of my favorite things to do is experiment with protein powder and see what yummy creation I can come up with next🧪
.
I typically supplement with protein powder in my day because otherwise I’d be spending all day eating chicken or something just to meet my daily protein requirement and ya girl ain’t got no time for that🙅🏼‍♀️
.
Anywayssss, I know lots of people like protein coffee so I thought why not protein cocoa😋
.
It turned out SO great so I wanted to share this little cup of holiday warmth with you☺️
.
Ingredients:
🎄1/2 scoop Peppermint bark Level-1 protein
🎄1.5 cups coconut or almond milk
🎄2 tbsp cocoa powder
🎄Few drops of almond extract
🎄Few dashes of stevia powder
.
Mix all ingredients (I use a milk frother and it works wonders), warm it up in the microwave for 2 minutes and enjoy!🙃
.
Not to toot my own horn 📣 but it is pretty amazing so please let me know if you try!!!🤶🏻👩🏼‍🍳
.
PS: Less than 12 days until Christmas is HEREEEEEE 🥳🎅🏼🎄☃️

GENETICS 💥 .

You may have heard of the 3 different body types: (1) an ectomorph, (2) a mesomorph and (3) an endomorph 🏋️‍♂️
.

Ectomorphs are naturally much slimmer than the other two and have a hard time gaining weight 1️⃣
.

An endomorph is quite the opposite, in that they find it easy to gain weight and hard to stay lean 2️⃣
.

Lucky mesomorphs are usually lean and muscular at the same time, before even picking up a single weight plate 3️⃣
.

It is definitely true that there are people out there that will have an advantage over others, and the majority of us won't be one of them 😳
.

However, it doesn't really matter❗
.

Look, maybe you think you are cursed with bad genetics. But whilst it might be true that some have it easier, it's 100% possible for anyone to build a great body, you might just have to work harder for it 🤙
.

Personally, I believe that I am one of those individuals with very average, or even less than average genetics 👎
.

But if we're not willing to work harder, then that just means we don't want it bad enough 💯
.

Therefore, let's stop focusing on what we don't have, and start focusing on what we do have 👌
.

Sure you, and I also, might not have the best genetics, but we do have a fully functioning body 👏
.

Regardless of what your genetics are like, you can still attain great results 💪
.

Let's pledge to Zero Excuses ✊️#WeCanDoThis
