obliques are my favorite hehe, I got them after a lot of yoga and weighted sidebends. (if you want sidebends to be effective...you need to go heavy weight and focus on the eccentric movement)


You know...I don't like 'em! Not on me, anyway.


I think they look super hot on men though. My BF thinks they look good on me, but I will not be doing extra exercises to build-up my obliques any more than they are at this point!!


Just do it, I'm a fan of obliques on the ladies. Unless they're ultra pronounced.


Hmmm today for exercise... I did nothing yesterday! And kayaked the day before. So I believe working Chest and shoulders, then dreaded cardio I used to be so disciplined with cardio...45 minutes everyday no matter what...getting 20 straight minutes from me is a success... It has to be chasing a soccer ball, or doing something to keep my mind off.


Oh yeah, have beach volleyball today in the evening!



Yesterday was a heavy chest day, and a little cardio thrown in afterwards. If I make it to the gym tonight, might try to do legs and shoulders (not sure if I'm going tonight after work, since I'm exhausted from this past weekend).



Me too, I've slept in Monday-Tuesday and Wednesday

A joke I was told at the weekend:

If you want to pick a fight with one of two people, which should you pick? The guy who never goes to the gym, or the guy who goes to the gym every day?



The guy who goes to the gym.

He'll be too wrecked by whatever he did to himself the day before to defend himself.

I could do abs for 30mns long ago... 200 or so. Miss the six-pack.


Running has become tiresome. And personal record of push up was 40. Even when I was very thin.


Now I enjoy swimming or cycling. Or Just walking always in the countryside.


Used to be decent in badminton.

I have a 6 pack in the morning before I eat anything lol. I took some shirtless selfies (one of which is on Tinder - yeah, I'm that guy, but only on Tinder ). I'm tempted to post one as my profile pic, for a super limited time.


I want to get more cut, it's so hard though! You can't eat anything!!!

    • 5 Things People Who’ve Been Mentally Abused Do
      Do you know how common mental abuse is? According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information, 80 percent of the population has experienced some form of abusive relationship and behavior. However, despite how frequent it is, emotional abuse is still hard to spot. Unlike physical abuse, mental abuse doesn’t leave any visible scars; instead, it affects someone’s behavior, mindset, and mentality. This means some people deny they’ve been mentally abused, and others may not even recognize the toxic behavior. So, whether you’re reading this to be able to recognize emotional abuse in others or recognize it in yourself, these a few things people who’ve been mentally abused do are sure to help you be more empathetic and kinder.

    • 5 Polarity Secrets to Attracting Love that Makes you Magnetic AF
      In this video, I'm going to show you the 5 most powerful ways to create polarity in order to attract love. Think of it like a magnet. If you have a magnet, it is going to attract, but also repel based on its polarity. If you have a positive and a positive and you put them together, guess what's gonna happen? They're going to repel each other. Same with a negative and negative. But when you have a positive and a negative, they clink right like this. The key to attracting love is embodying your own sense of polarity, which really is the authenticity of who you really are, letting go of what you are not so that you can attract love easier than ever. These are things that completely transformed my own life.
