The realization of progress can be frustrating
In today’s “instant gratification” society we’re used to noticing, receiving, having things at an exponentially faster rate than what is realistic
In my mind this is why so many fall off course. They don’t see huge changes in short amounts of time, so they stray, either from trying to push harder, overdoing it in the wrong direction to reach their goals, or from a quitter’s mentality since the results weren’t fast enough.
Over the years I have been in love with training my hamstrings, but never so much my glutes. To be honest I assumed since I was working my hamstrings, my glutes would just naturally follow. BUT I was wrong. It takes focus, specific exercises, and a very strong mind muscle connection to build, and sculpt certain areas. -everything from hip thrusts, to placement of feet, to depths of squats, tempo work, feeling the muscle as it works.
So over the past several months I have been taking steps backwards. Laying building blocks, and solid foundations to build me some killer glutes. I’ve been focusing on really connecting my brain to feeling the movements (mind-muscle connection), to make sure I’m contracting the glutes as needed. I’ve been researching, listening to the advice, and guidance of my coach, and NOT GIVING UP when I did not see immediate results. This last one is the biggest part. Its mentally a struggle to watch these big, muscular, well-built booty babes on social media and not just want to throw in the towel thinking “oh well, I’ll just never get there” But I’ve stuck in there, and will continue to. I’m at the point where I am starting to finally notice some growth, and I have to say that seeing the progress start has made my motivation sky rocket to stay this slow, and steady course to my bigger booty. December better watch out, cause I’m coming in with fire, and a bigger bootay
It’s not a sprint race, it’s not about who can get the best physique the fastest. It’s a marathon, a long road of uphill, downhill, and consistent effort.
Whether it’s weight loss, overall muscle gain, specific area growth, strength gains, whatever- make your mindset slow and steady, solid built gains. - 5 hours ago
