Pictures on the right are before #awakentrainingseries. And pictures on left are after. __ Cosmetic Goal was to be busting out of this shirt. __ Performance Goal was simply to have a sickening level of mind-muscle connection. __ Had a few unexpected PRs which was also a great thing. __ The other day, someone asked me why I train. And effortlessly without any thinking, the words rolled out of my mouth, “To look…good…and…move..well.” __ Of course it goes much much deeper than that. But the above statement sums it up pretty concisely. __ I’m looking forward to the next several months of ATS 2.0. Along the way, I’d like to expand this connectedness that training and fitness has to performance as a human. __ Keep listening to the show if that interests you. Bc that dialogue really is a reflection of what this stuff can embody — if we let it. __ @revivalstrength @functional.bodybuilding @marcusfilly @revive_rx __ #lookgoodmovewell #awakentrainingseries #functionalbodybuilding
What makes the #awakentrainingseries special? First and foremost the participants. Seeing everyone make such great strides in their training and connection to fitness has been magical. Second has to be the variety of movements. We keep it fresh! #Repost @talito.brigante with @repostapp ・・・ Thank you @marcusfilly for putting together an amazing program that each day had me doing at least one or two new functional bodybuilding movements or fun/challenging variations of stuff I have done in the past. It was a fun 3 months that has brought balance back to my body and a real improvement in many areas of my training! Excited for part two! Thank you @amirdabu my partner in crime for following me on this journey!! @revivalstrength #awakentrainingseries #thankful #progress #functionalbodybuilding #crossfit #tryingnewthings #newchallenge #fitness #fitnessmotivation #happy #moneywellspent #ontothenext

“This when I started the first Awaken Training Series 1.0 up to now and following the diet you put in Resources on Revival Strength.”
Day 2 @revivalstrength #awakentrainingseries 2.0 This time a year ago I was struggling to do any sort of pull up or even a push up on my knees I was having a lot of joint and nerve pain after a bad reaction to an antibiotic which ultimately forced me to step back from kb sport It has been a long road back to feeling “normal” but today I was able able to do wide grip strict pull ups with zero pain @joelavapt #itsthelittlethings #progress #pullupsarehard #functionalbodybuilding #crossfitnyc #crossfittrainer #crossfit
The end of the #awakentrainingseries calls for some testing to be done. Leaving tomorrow for the beach so bad to fit a lot of testing in today.. Power cleaned 275 for PR #1 Benched 225 for PR #2. Tried 230 and just ended up holding it for an eternity (I credit this PR to my girlfriend’s Wonder Woman wrist wraps) Beltless Deadlift 390 for PR #3 BW-182 I try not to plug a lot of stuff but seriously this was one of the best programs that I’ve ever done. @revivalstrength Also had to show off the mustache. I started this thing when I started this program. It holds all the power!!
