#tbt post to a moment on stage at the @wingsofstrength show hosted by @tgflex - undoubtedly the best show I’ve participated in - both the level of contestants and how well it was arranged! Even though I got third at this show I am very happy with everything and it honestly is marked as a big WIN in my book!
Yesterday’s story about pre-workouts including stimulants raised A LOT of questions! I used the Ghost product from @gymnordic which got my central nervous system all fired up and got me ready to roll! But when you’re done with your workout - we want to start our recovery right away, we want our bodies to calm down! So to answer your questions as to which products to use to start this process as fast as possible: ___ - some sort of dense protein source - Essential amino acids (more essential if using veggie protein) - taurine to calm down the nervous system, increase insulin resistance and restore calcium transport, 2-6 grams - glutamine 4-20 grams (lower carbs = more glutamine) - glycine, 2-20 grams - Lysine 2-4 grams (calms the nervous system) Other useful options, leucine and theanine! I hope this answers all the questions from my story replies yesterday! 😜
How do you determine macros in your diet? First of all - everything should be periodically changed as your body adapts to the same thing over and over again. But when I’m faced with the question “what kind of macros are best for weight loss?” The answer is never the same. So when I am creating a meal plan in @zenfit_app the macro split is determined on account of: • total body fat percentage • body fat distribution • diet history • desired goal and performance • compliance with nutrient timing • physiological settings
If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life! A big thanks to @kjaer.fit for joining me and capturing some moments with clients - especially this “pep talk” in between sets 🤗
It’s very rare that I work with athletes going on stage. When I do - I make sure before committing fully to the project - that the given athlete has the same expectations as I do and are as dedicated as I am! My athlete @kasper_s_kristensen has in very short time made drastic changes in his physique and upped his posing to another level! There’s still a long way to go - but the initial baby steps has been made!
Shout out to two of the absolute strongest women I have been blessed with to have in my life here on #internationalwomensday ! One of them having the strength to deal with me as a kid and the other having the strength to deal with the same kid just a whole lot bigger! 😜😍
My body is a physical manifestation of my thoughts. My power is not my body.. My power is my mind! I’ve been shouted a thousand times in my face during the end of my preps “THIS IS WHEN IT COUNTS”! The time of most importance is now, when the spotlights are not closing on, when the publicity and cameras are not in your face. The time of being in a caloric surplus is when you’re actually building your body up for it to be showcased later in the process! It’s about working hard when it is not showing, not as giving! Contest prep is about maintaining and not loosing what you’ve worked so hard to build in your winter fur! Being in control of your mind and thoughts and the understanding of this is crucial! #bigpapabear - photo by the great @janteller
After at least 6 hours of driving we ended up in a small but highly underestimated part of our honeymoon! A little town called Flagstaff where we immediately rushed to the pool where we got to meet and know an elderly couple! Every aspect of our honeymoon is precious to me and I will cherish every single experience - even the horrible one of loosing our return ticket to Denmark - as it stands as a reminder to tell me that, together - we can do all things.
So - something went wrong in my first attempt to upload the video! But now - with the help of @lucas_scharnowsky I have now put together and uploaded my scientific video of shoulder training in general on YouTube. Check the link in my bio!
