    Older women (and coaches working with this population group) -
    PLEASE keep a watch on your hormonal profile.

    How many women do you know that regularly run blood work to monitor their hormones? Outside of my clients, I can't think of a single one that I know in real life.

    With the accessibility of blood work services (like medichecks), and the availability of HRT, it has never been easier. Doing so will allow you to maximise your long-term health, as well as your physique. The large body of evidence also shows that the sooner you correct these markers, the greater the benefit.

    As a minimum, I recommend regularly monitoring:
    - androgens (at least testosterone)
    - estrogens (at least e2)
    - thyroid
    - progesterone
    - blood glucose

    Linked below is an example of the benefit of keeping just one of these markers in check, using estrogen based HRT in response to hormonal decline post-menopause to prevent sarcopenia. (age-related loss of muscle tissue and strength).

    If anybody would like any help on accessing bloodwork, HRT, what to look out for etc, please do send me a PM.

    Whilst the Mrs spent her rest day out in Birmingham living it up for her birthday last night, I sat in on my own, had an epsom salt bath and watched Netflix all night Gotta optimise recovery at all costs, right? (I'm joking of course, I don't recommend trading off life experiences for physique goals for most people, unless you're like me and Austin and just love this stuff lol).

    Anyway, it's nice to be 20lbs heavier and seeing new veins coming through! TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log

    Doing everything that I can to increase the width of these lats this training block!

    I would say the number one contributing factor to my progress in this area thus far (as it has historically been a massively lacking body part) has been mastering my proprioception to actively engage the target fibers through all of my pulling movements.

    Something as simple as 10 minutes of isometric 'activation' work through a fully shortened and lengthened position pre-workout completely changes the execution of my pulling movements, and anecdotally increases the efficiency tenfold.

    Perfect execution, along with the increase in volume, frequency and intensity, should see me finally getting some growth here!TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log
