Grow Baby Quads Grow
Hey, look at my baby quads. I’m more than excited they are popping out slowly. It baffles me because it has been 6.5 weeks sheltering-in-place due to the coronavirus, and my quads are making an appearance.
I am thankful I decided to take this pandemic and shelter-in-place order not to continue cutting/dieting. Choosing to maintain my weight has helped me to build and keep my muscle more than I could ever imagine.
Of course, some days, I feel flabby and chunky. More so than ever with garlic and buttercream, but whatever – I love my gains. My mental health has improved tenfold too.
One other factor is expanding progressive overload beyond adding more weight. With my workout plan, I add more reps, focus on the eccentric and concentric movements, and focus on isometrics. Weight lifting has become limited due to our home gym equipment. Therefore I had to pivot and make a decision on how to achieve the same physique goal with limited weight.
Focusing on different movements to improve our lifts has worked out like a gem paired with proper nutrition of getting all my necessary macros in.
Below is a post from Bret Contreras of the various progressive overload techniques that have helped me along the way.
Lastly, above all, I thought to share what I take or do daily in case you are interested.
