Truth moment | Six week’s ago today I had a hysterectomy. Living with chronic, uncontrollable pain is no way to live. Prior to the surgery I lived in constant pain for the past two years. Sure you see me on social media living my life, pursuing my dreams, running a business and loving on my family. What you didn’t see were the tears and the constant pep talks that were needed just to roll myself out of bed every morning, to take care of my family and clients, run my business and to just push through the day. Because life and business keeps going and so does Lakesha. Well that’s what I told myself.
I’m grateful for Dr. Jenkins (my Meredith Grey) and nurse Greta (the same nurse who saved my life in August after having an allergic reaction to my 34th iron infusion). They were the best team one could have ever asked for along with my husband and Mom right by my side.
After I checked into the hospital that morning, I was told that my hemoglobin level was severely low again and that I would need yet another blood transfusion ahead of the surgery. This was my third transfusion with the most recent just 3 months prior to the surgery. That’s no way to live. So I made the best decision for me to have this procedure so that I can enjoy my life and do fun things with my family and friends without having to consider my pain level. It’s now 6-weeks post surgery and I feel like a million bucks.
Take care of yourself mommas (and daddy’s). The world needs you. •
Consistency - 2013 legs to 2018 legs. 2013 would have been when I really started to take training more seriously in terms of balance and proportion. I may not have been 100% on my diet all the time through these years but I’ve still made an effort to be wary of what foods to eat and whatnot. Bodybuilding for me is more cruised and isn’t so much a sprint 🤷🏻♂️ I’m just a guy who enjoys training and eating and growing. I understand and respect those who can commit 100% however I’m all about enjoyment and longevity. Pre warning Human in pictures may be smaller than they appear.

When should you increase the load for an exercise? -
As athletes adapt to a training stimulus, it is important to have a strategy for systematically increasing exercise loads so that improvements will continue over time. A very basic and quite conservative method that can be used during a strength training program is the 2-for-2 rule. If an athlete can perform 2 or more extra reps over the originally prescribed rep goal for a given exercise on the last set for 2 consecutive workouts, the load should be increased for that exercise for the next training session. As always, the method of progression will differ depending on the specific goals and aims of the program, however the 2-for-2 rule provides a nice starting point.
Outside of the comfort zone lies the chaos zone. It's where fear lives.. It's where that 'what if?' question comes creeping up your neck...
And that's where you make a choice :
Loser attitude: what if I get hurt? What if people will laugh at me?... Winner attitude: what if I did one more? What if I just try?... I choose to be a winner 🔥🔥🔥
And I believe you are one to 😁👍💪 #winnertalk#streetworkout9800#calestenics#humanflag#peopleareawesome
