Panthers is a resistance based workout, with the key premise built on overload. Overloading muscles and working towards muscle “fatigue” and “failure” is the primary focus of a Panthers session. Make sure you don't miss out, jump on the app to book in now!

Flashback to 2 days out from stepping on stage for the first time. All day we make tiny decisions that at first glance don’t appear to be a big deal but in the long term they change our lives for better or worse. The past 2 weeks have been good and bad. Good because of the freedom and energy I’ve had back in my life now that Comp is over, but bad because I’ve made decisions that haven’t always been in my best interest towards achieving my next goal. My goal has always been to reverse out properly; to maintain a level/element of leanness that at first glance people would know I look after my body diligently. So why am I writing this? Because for the past 2 weeks I have made little decisions that have gradually lead to the calories my coach gave me (a smart and incredibly well designed nutrition plan aimed at me making lean muscle gains) creeping up by 500 cals each day, so for example instead of 1650cals, I’d have some berries, some sugar free maple syrup, some macro mike peanut butter, a bit of chocolate here, a biscuit there, some tomato sauce over here. I tracked my food the other day just out of interest because I thought all of the sugar free sauces weren’t that bad, couldn’t possibly be adding THAT much on top of my recommended calorie intake. Well it was a nasty surprise when I learned it added up to approximately 300calories IF I was behaving myself and when I say behaving I mean, not having a biscuit or chocolate. But minimum with sugar free sauces and mixed berries, I was adding a significant amount of cals I didn’t need.
I realised I have an addiction to aspartame or “fake sugar.” In my mind I associate real sugar with fat gain but what I forgot about was how the body tastes sweet foods (even sugar free maple) and immediately begins preparing the body for sugar that never comes. This in turn leads to some pretty intense carb cravings, as if being on lower calories wasn’t enough!
So I made the decision to cut out all the sugar free products from now on as I feel like it’s leading me down a road I don’t like.
I’m starting to think that eating REAL sugar like real maple syrup or a few squares of dark chocolate would actually be more beneficial.
Week 10 Legs ✅
Last week my leg workout left me feeling sort of defeated. Yes, I completed everything the way I was supposed to. No, I didn't give up or slack off. But I still just STRUGGLED. I feel bad for the people in the gym that had to witness it. Today, it's like I went in there a new person. I totally CRUSHED it! I couldn't help but think back to the first time I saw "Burpee + push up + box jump" and I thought.... NOPE. No thanks. Not happening. See ya later. I remember barely being able to finish the circuits (if I even did). I remember having to split everything up to take a breather. I didn't have to do that this time! I completed it all together and had time to get through the first exercise again! Total win & NSV!
It's not all about the scale or the transformation pictures. •XO-Mad•
Week 3 legs and cardio #done ✅ I beat all my records when I did them in week one of #bbg and got through each circuit two and a half times every 7 minutes! 😃 although I can’t SEE the progress yet, I can feel it! ☺️
I hate working out when the gym is busy but you gotta do what you gotta do 🤷🏻♀️ (aka strategically time your selfie so no one else is in it)
Day 1 of #SS6 and I can tell you that that leg workout alone was probably worth the $10 I paid for the whole guide 😅
Left the gym with my legs shaking and feeling very happy about it 😊
I've never followed a guide like this, so I'm excited to see what the next 6 weeks bring! I'm already loving having a place to track how much I'm lifting 🙌🏻💫
Reminder to self- fitness does not need to be torture! It’s been a while since I’ve made time for the gym, which I should really get back to. But I’ve made time for friends, fun and fitness by rock climbing, hiking and taking some dance classes! I can feel my sore muscles getting stronger and stronger and I’m having a good time while doing it! 👌 #motivationmonday
Been doing a lot of research while working with @kgocklin . The trick with weight restricted athletes is exactly that, they can't gain much muscle mass. Listened to @defrancosgym on @darustrong podcast talking about increasing sets, decreasing reps, and adding some rest time to increase strength without adding lbs. As we get closer to his fight we'll shift our focus to power with lower volume as he cuts weight and increases the intensities of his pad work, BJJ, wrestling, etc. practices. ▪▪▪▪▪
Also notice that my video editing skills have gotten significantly better😂
You...you deceptively innocent looking machine of evil! My legs have never been so unsure of themselves! See you again tomorrow!
Today’s #workout mostly consisted of #calisthenics circuits and attempting not to eat treadmill belt

Finished Phase 1 (Day 1-Day 26) of the #80dayobsession last week! What I gained from the last 4 weeks is Strength, more Discipline, Dedication and some MUSCLE, baby! 💪🏽 Not just physically but mentally stronger too, knowing that whatever you set your mind to, your body can achieve! So pumped for Phase 2, as it switches up the movements to make them more dynamic and challenging! Bring it on!!! Phase 2 started with Booty Day today and it kicked butt!! 🍑😅 A little wobbly on that balance there but I kept with it! Off to having my delicious post workout meal! Have a fantastic day, y’all!! 🙌🏽
