What a day, and where to begin. First off, everyone performed amazing. It was an honor to throw down with such fit strong willed friends. We made it to the finals, and I could not be any prouder of everyones performance. Giant shout out to @thealohacollective for geting us here. Also a huge thank you to @crossfitoahufamily @cfcoachgil and everyone from Crossfit Kailua for kicking our ass weekly. Blessed to be able to use our bodies like the fit beasts we are. Get out and move your bodies friends, it feels amazing! #crossfit #vagames #hawaii #bth #believethehype #luckywelivehi

Just a friendly reminder for your fitness journey: Your muscles do not grow during exercise. Exercise is only the stimulus. The body strengthens the muscles while you are resting.
So make sure that you give 100% with rest, just like you would give 100% exercising.
Need to rest 100% today.

This is my favorite part from @schwarzenegger Book, the education of the bodybuilder. This book taught me to break the rules of traditional bodybuilding training to push my mind and body to the next level! #UndergroundStrengthCoach #UndergroundStrengthBook #arnold #bodybuilding #Stronger #tougher
Wow I had totally forgotten about reading that part. Arnold figured it out in the 70s. You want to be strong and huge? Constant variation.
