@smith.julian then and now 👀 - #transformationtuesday with TEAM Signature Athlete Julian Smith reminding you that your fitness journey will have different phases! Growing/bulking, cutting, maintaining... everyone’s journey is different! Focus on YOUR goals and what phase you need to be in to reach it! It may mean getting uncomfortable in one phase before starting another.. - “While all the other dudes were getting cut for summer or spring break every year, I got bigger and focused on building muscle for 6 years straight. Those guys had little to no progress in that time period and I made more progress than I ever have in my life! Which set me up for the physique I have today. This is always a good opportunity to speak about social media and how it affects young (or new) lifters today. Back when I was rockin the moon face 🌚 and weighing in at 260lbs I had one goal in mind - I wanted to get huge. I was 22 years old, switching off my training every other week between powerlifting and bodybuilding. I didn't know anything about flexible dieting (or nutrition in general) but I knew enough to stay way the hell in a surplus of calories.. and clearly I was killing it 😎I didn't know or see anyone in the fitness world that was shredded 24/7. I honestly didn't even consider the benefits of looking lean or trying to track my intake closer. I was going to school full time, working, I didn't have time to mess with it! I held onto this particular look for SIX YEARS. No summer cuts, no preps. I credit this time period for my current physique. Now I'm not saying you need to be 60lbs overweight to see progress.. but I am saying you need to let go of the idea that you can be shredded and make crazy gains all at the same time! A lot of the fitness icons you see today spent a good amount of time in a thicker state for muscle maturity and growth. You need to spend quality time in a surplus without yo-yo'ing into a cut every 3 months.” - Have a transformation!?

HEY TRY THIS! - Leg raises are a great ab workout, but turn up the intensity by not allowing your legs to fully come down. This keeps the tension on your core and it is one of @hunterdelfa1’s favorite ways to feel the burn and build his abdominal strength. - Have an exercise variation you love? Let us know!
