How come you exercise so hard and don’t have a flat belly?! I shared my answer to this on my story but it was too important to not post about it as well. 😤 It got me a little fired up and I feel like it’s a topic that needs to be talked about more. 👊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t have a flat belly because I believe in fueling my body for performance over restricting my calories to look a certain way. Yeah if I starved myself or cut down my fats and still trained as much as I do I might finally get that 8 pack but reality is my body type won’t. I like to eat and I know when I don’t eat enough I just don’t feel good during training. And a lot of it also comes down to genetics. So I’m sorry but I will never be one of the girls with no belly fat at all and I’m okay with it. I’m not an Instagram model, I’m an athlete and what we do is completely different here so if you don’t like the way I look you can unfollow. ☺️ Thank you!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #GROWNSTRONG #StrongIsIn ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS. This is me no makeup, hair not done, just got done with training. I eat around 3000 calories a day and I feel HAPPY and HEALTHY in my body. Yeah some of my pictures on Instagram don’t look attractive or my muscles might be bulging because usually a photographer comes in the middle of my training session. I’m not posing for the camera or starving myself before so my abs will pop through. I’m trying to be the best me and if I get a cool picture in action I’m going to share it. ✌️BE REAL, BE TRUE, BE YOU. ❤️ That is all. Thank you to everyone who shared or wrote me a kind message after I posted my story. Love you all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ XO LF
For all those traveling this weekend or someone who only has 15 minutes to train 👉 this one is for YOU. ☺️ Something Ras and I did while we were in Mexico and short on time and equipment! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Repost @grownstrong ・・・ Fitness doesn’t have to be complicated and can take less than 10 minutes. Find a way to move and I promise you will feel so much better after. 💪 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s a vacation/ at home workout for you to try: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Jumping Air Squats 20-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-4-2 Mountain Climbers (*not shown in video because someone didn’t click record aka @rasmuswandersen 😂) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *100m Run between each set (or 30 seconds of running or high knees in place) We did 10 calories on the treadmill with the highest incline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My time - 10:02 Ras’s time - 8:58 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Workout goes like this... 10 Jumping Air Squats, 20 Mountain Climbers, 100m Run, 9 Jumping Air Squats, 18 Mountain Climbers, 100m Run, and so on down the ladder. As the reps go down, it’s a lot of running and burns when you push the pace. 🥵 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Try to go sub 10 and tag a friend to give this a try! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #GrownStrong #AtHomeWorkout #Simple #Effective #Fitness
Workout WEDNESDAY ☝️ Tag your friends who are in need of a quick and effective workout 🙏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ras and I did this Monday 🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Four rounds for time of: Run 400 meters 20 Toes to Bar 40 Air Squats *You can scale toes to bar to hanging knee raises or sit ups. For the run, you can either run outside or run 400m on the Assault Runner which is what we did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My time: 16:20 Ras’s time not sure 🤔 but I beat him! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Perfect workout coming back from Vegas to get a little sweat. 😅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WorkoutWednesday #GrownStrong
I get asked a lot “What pre workout supplement do you take?” And to be 100% honest, I don’t take any pre workout supplements unless it is 100% natural and actually helps my body rather than just giving it a short term jolt of energy to crash later in the day. I’ve never been a fan of the products with all the excessive amount of sugar and caffeine. 😬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m not a big coffee drinker, but if you know me you know I love my green tea. So I have that before my first session and before second session I take @puorilife CX3. It not only tastes refreshing but it has great ingredients. Ginkgo biloba, yerba mate, zinc and vitamin C. All natural alternatives to help your immune system and give you that extra boost before going to the gym or work or school or whatever you have going on in your life. 👌 #Sponsored
No better feeling than waking up and getting back to work. ✌️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Vegas was really fun, but there’s just something about getting back into routine that makes me happy. Eating my normal breakfast, drinking green tea and going to the gym first thing to sweat just make me feel so much better and that’s why I keep coming back for more. I love fitness and eating clean. You will find me with a green juice or a protein shake as my my go to drink. And I love the feeling of pushing my body both physically and mentally inside the gym. In the moment it might not be easy, but I promise you will come out feeling so much better after. And if you don’t know how to get started, just move. I promise you it will 100% be worth it. ✊ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #GrownStrong #FitnessIsLife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS. I’m wearing new @nike One Luxe tights. These are seriously my favorite to train in and walk around in. Probably the most comfortable tights #Nike has ever made. 😍 And I’m not just saying this because I’m sponsored!

TWO weeks until I’m back on the competition floor with my TEAM. 💃🏼 Shanghai, China we’re coming for you! 🇨🇳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can’t wait to experience the Chinese culture and to get some more practice together in a competition setting before Games. 🙏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comment below if there is anything you would recommend to see or do or eat while in China! Ras and I will be staying for a week after. ☺️
Venimos. Vimos. Amamos. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We came. We saw. We LOVED. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📍Cenote Suyton, Mexico. 🇲🇽
PR!!! 😄😄 243lbs (110.5kg) Clean and Jerk. 🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First time in 5 years and it’s only 1 pound... But I’ll take it. 👏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So happy about this even though I gave a little smirk at the end. 🙈 PR’s these days are so hard to come by and I felt like I could’ve even gone heavier. I guess this what happens when the team is in town and I get to lift with my super strong teammate @reganhuckaby. 😘 Oh and also a week off from lifting in Mexico gave my body some much needed rest! And powered by Salt & Straw ice cream last night. 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #GROWNSTRONG ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Will we see a 1RM Clean and Jerk in China? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And PS. Yes I know I peed and yes I know it’s an issue but wanted to share my PR with you all so please no Instagram critics here
Sun kissed, salty hair, sandy toes, the bluest water I’ve ever seen... And good company. ✌️ Mexico you will always have my ❤️.
