Currently slacking on getting new content for you guyszz due to school being busy BUT I did want to share some insight about how I train & my advice for those of you who are newer to lifting!! [this lil clip is part of my most recent vlog! For the full workout + a day of NYC adventures, go watch on YouTube ]
We see SO many videos of complicated, crazy-looking booty exercises on social media.. so here’s a friendly reminder that you can’t replace the basics Now that I have been lifting for 4ish years and have a decent muscle base, I’m getting more creative with my training in order to isolate certain muscle groups while avoiding others, BUTTTT that doesn’t mean I don’t value or perform the basics. I think it’s SO important to spend time learning how to properly squat, deadlift, hip thrust, lunge etc before moving on to “fancy” isolation movements. Compound/barbell movements should be the foundation of your training, and isolation stuff like cable work, machines etc should be supplementary. The barbell should be your BFF. Become one with the barbell. Be the barbell.
My lifting history started with learning how to squat, deadlift, clean, snatch, and overhead press. So my physique is a product of years of prioritizing compound movements, EVEN THOUGH I’m a bikini competitor. There’s this stupid stigma that girls who don’t wanna get “bulky” shouldn’t do compound lifts or lift heavy, but if you wanna put on muscle and be a well-rounded athlete, that’s exactly what you need to do!! Long story short, do not neglect or underestimate the power of barbell training. Learn how to execute the movements, and make it a goal to master them. Do them consistently and work on getting stronger, and the results will come☺️ #MarieWoldFitness #GrindAndBeGrateful
