Hugo Rivera as a young boy!

I wanted to show a picture of Hugo Rivera as a young boy!

Below would be Hugo Rivera as fit, Strong man that he has become......no longer the overweight child in the first picture above. See even though I have never met this man he is helping me build some steller legs with the help of his Hardgainers Bodybuilding Handbook........this book breaks down your workouts, nutrition and if you actually follow his plan it will shows results! How many times have you started a program and never completed it? I told myself that when I bought this book I would complete what I started.......hell what is 21 weeks when you have been training for 4years and not seen the results that you really wanted. Talk to a very successful person and they will tell you it did not happen overnight and they had a plan and a certain drive..........anyways should the 21 weeks go by and I don't get my desired results I either did not give it my all or my plan will change and I will search out something else! My point here people is you must stick with what ever YOUR plan may be! So no results in 2 weeks no biggy, Rome was not built in a day or even 2 weeks, it took time and the body needs time also to respond to a new plan, see things out and the results will indeed come maybe not as fast as you would like but they will come through dedication and drive.

Anyhoo this is what I did last night at the Gym with a little help from my book that I carry with me at all times on leg day!

Hybrid Phase: Volume/Strength Training Weeks 16-18

Modified Compound Superset #1
Squats (Medium Stance) Reps 8,6,4...........Sets 3.........90 second rest
Lying Leg Curls Reps 8,6,4...........Sets 3.........90 second rest

Superset 2
Quadriceps Leg Press Reps 8,6,4...........Sets 3.........90 second rest
Barbell Stiff-legged Deadlift Reps 8,6,4...........Sets 3.........90 second rest

Superset 3
Standing Calf Raises Reps 10,8,6..........Sets 3.........no rest
Lying Leg Raises Reps 10,8,6..........Sets 3.........60 seconds

I would brag about the weight I was pushing last night but I can't..........taking my much needed time away from the Gym has lost me some of my strength, it's ok though I don't have to kill it everytime, giving youself slack and just doing it sometimes is all you have to do!

Have a great day,

Fitness Tip Of The Month

PMA- Positive Mental Attitude

Last month we talked about brain food and what you are feeding your brain. It is sort of like what you feed your body, if crap goes in, crap is going to come out. So most likely you have started feeding your brain more positive things to where PMA becomes an increasingly easier state of mind for you. It starts out difficult, I know, but the first step is to realize what is in your life that is dragging you down. What feels heavy to you? Those are the things you want to slowly extract from your life. As you become lighter and lighter, PMA becomes a natural state of mind.

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of having fun. I have seen one too many competitor taking themselves way to seriously. Believe me, I have my moments. My food is like the holy grail, and if I am 2 seconds off on my food it is like a catastrophe has just struck. What we would all do well to do is to lighten up. Remember whatever journey you are on, it is for the main purpose of having fun. Once you stop having fun, in my opinion, you should stop whatever you are doing. Having fun is a priority in my life. That does not mean I sacrifice hard work, discipline, proper training, and diet, but it does mean that I relax into it, enjoy it and let go.

PMA is also positive expectation, that if you are doing the work, the fruits of your labor will surely come. There is no question in your mind, no exception, and no alternative. We need to distinguish between determination and having heavy energy ourselves, being way to rigid in what we want and how long it takes to get there. Train with discipline, have fun and you will be in great shape and people will wonder how it was so easy. What's your secret they say. PMA!

Have a wonderful month.

Tuesday Post

What can you say other then this women looks amazing! I believe she is in the newest Oxygen Magazine coverage of the Arnold........What in Gods name do have do too look like that beside literally work your ass off and eat so clean, she had not touch a slice of pizza in month's..........either that or have the best genes ever!

Anyhoo I wanted to say that last night was the first night that I have stepped foot in my Gym in 3 weeks...........honestly was so nervous about the questions I would get about why the no showings, thank God my good friend at the Gym was with me and we just walked and talked which felt so good almost therapeutic if that makes sense.

I have made some decisions in the past couple of days.......first I will not commit to a competition date for this year, when the time is right I will feel it in my soul! At the moment the pressure seems so great and all I want is too do is kill it in the Gym and enjoy new challenges in my workouts and being my diet is good I feel that God will lead me in the right direction whether it is competing or on too a
new endeavor!

Tonight I did go back for some shoulder work and have lost some strength but am sure that will return but it felt so good almost like being at my second home, sounds stupid but I forgot all about the anxiety and my depression seems to be lifted when working out!

Also I have made the decision that I will only work at most 3 days straight one day upper, one day cardio, next day legs and off (completely off) and then 2 on........total of 5 days a week unless I want to take a simple bike ride or a walk with the little one.........my body has been telling me for so long to slow it down and I have not listened, so that must stop. I need to learn that no one not even me how much I want something must have limits for the desire for perfection (does it really exists anyways) competition is subjective, I can tell you without a doubt that I have seen girls walk away so discouraged they never go after it again, I don't quit maybe even when I should.

Anyways we are all beautiful in our own ways and perfection is in the eye of the beholder.......staying healthy is the most important thing we can do, most of us have family's that need and love us just for who we are!

Love , peace and muscle

Straight to my ASS! I will remain strong and eat my rice and talipia!!!! wish me luck! Grrrrr. I think he is started to like my butt a little thicker!

First I would like to say that I have missed my Blogger Community! My reasons for being MIA have to do woth Internal issue's that I thought would actually never happen to me..........overwhelming anxiety and depresion in which I could not even get out of bed or stop crying! I thought for so long that my issues where with my body and my immune system being shot to shit! Anyways I am seeking therapy and and hollistic means of help along with conventional meds.

I really think I need to delve into my soul and figure this out with prayer and support I will be just fine!

Love and Peace,

Lisa Theisen
