The golden girl @jasminsarahfit new PB 120kg CONVENTIONAL Deadlift. Doubled her deads in 4 months and dropped 4kgs bodyweight. ***
And that’s a new deadlift Pb - 120kg 🔥 To put that in perspective, that’s only a few kg off lifting 2x me 💪🏽
It’s amazing what the right coaching can do 💁🏽♀️ #TRAINEDBYDIVERSIFIT @diversifit_aus
Rest day today...
Went to a waterfall, pit stop at Tree Line cafe and then managed to get the scooter stuck on a hill so D had to get off and walk. I guess the 125cc can't handle 178kg worth of people. 🐷🛵
Today we went to the Samui Dog & Cat Rescue to see if we could lend a hand. We washed, groomed about 10 dogs/cats and played with many more!
Its lovely to see such a great cause even in a 3rd world country. We had a blast.

For those interested in the reverse band post, this is how simple we rigged it up. You will need:
3. Some basic logistical thinking 🤔
Reverse bands ❔ 🤔
@dana.casey smashing out some quality reps on the incline smith press utilising the reverse band method. (Yes we took our bands to Thailand and yes we are that weird).
Why reverse band?
Because bench is THE number one injury cause for bodybuilders. Plus the reverse band lets us handle greater loads leading to greater fiber recruitment, while reducing the stress on the muscles, joints, and connective tissue when in their most vulnerable positions aka the bottom of the press.
Give it a crack.
Our adventure today to Lamai!
We haven't retouched this photo either!
It's really not that hard.
Do the work, eat the food, get enough sleep, eliminate stress, don't bullshit yourself and watch the magic happen.
One year we have been together today! Hmmm... Off to the gym for a monster pull day and then some post workout Pina Coladas 🤣🤣🤣
If there's one thing this place has taught us it is that you don't need much to be happy and kind. The Thai people are the happiest and most sincere we've met despite not having the latest nikes on their feet or even having a smartphone! ***
Look where they live and work... Really makes us who really does have it all wrong? 🤔
We are in a foreign country, yes. This country does not have a lot of things that we do in Australia... Does that mean we aren't on track or accountability goes out the window?... The easy answer would be yes but no... It doesn't.
We are still monitoring our body composition results weekly. We are still following meal plans, we may not have everything here as we do back home but one thing you can guarantee is wherever you go on the globe, there will always be wholefoods! (Eggs, rice, animal proteins, oats, fruit, vegetables, nuts etc).
We are still enjoy meals out we just factor in an estimated calorie tolerance within that day and obviously don't go stupid with volume of food or menu items.
You can do it too.
🐴Donkey Calf Raises🐴
One of THE BEST calf builders
1. FULL stretch at bottom ROM (hold for 2 counts).
2. Contract HARD at top of ROM (hold for one count).
3. Curse the next day when you feel like you've been kicked in the back of the legs.
Don't have a Calf Raise Machine? Stand on 2 plates, grab a bench to rest your arms on, load up a weighted dip belt, bend at the hips and go for gold. ***
When the training is done, its fun in the sun. 🌞🌞🌞
Never forget to take some time for yourself and refresh. Training hard is essential but you're only as good as your recovery.
