Want to learn #howto do #pullups? Perform NEGATIVES! Negatives are not for beginners! (Beginners scroll down)
You are about 30% stronger during the eccentric phase of a lift. So work that angle to push past plateaus. Swipe left for ideas. Note on the lat pulldown, My weight is very heavy for me, I have to “cheat” on the concentric (down) phase, then resist letting the weight come up on the eccentric (up) I used negatives as a finisher today bc they’re exhausting and would have inhibited the rest of my back workout. But if your primary goal is to be able to do a pull-up, warm up and do them first! 3 sets of 3-5 reps is all u need! Oh! And stop trying to pull with ur arms. BEGINNERS: disregard these exercises.. spend 4-6 weeks going light on lat pulldown and focus on pulling with ur back, by driving ur elbows back into ur back pockets. Feel your shoulder blades retract! #gainz #goals #bigback ... See MoreSee Less

Way to go!!!
I love a good balanced workout that focuses on isolation strength moves finished with functional moves. Here’s what I did for my Chest/Tri Workout this week: not pictured: 3-4 Working sets of 6-10 reps (that doesn’t include a lighter weight warm up set) BENCH PRESS, CABLE FLYS, DB TRICEP OH EXT., TRICEP ROPE. Functional Finishers shown here: 3 sets of 12-15 reps of: TRX CHEST PRESS, ATOMIC PUSH UP-note my trick on how to get into the TRX easily-TRI OH, and 5 reps each alternating I’s, T’S and Y’S to balance out all of those pushing motions #healthyshoulders . Tag me and let me know how u liked it! #chestworkout #fitnessmotivation #fitness #advocare #fitafter40 ... See MoreSee Less

Ugh, watching this makes me miss dsm and your workout classes!! Thank you though, for your continuous inspiration and passion for improving oneself. 🙂
The time has come for Jillian Reeping to take a short leave of absence to do something more important, like.... HAVE A BABY! 👶 🍼We give her total props for sticking with her TEAM right up to ten days before due date. Even with that, she promises to keep moving as de-conditioning starts to occur within a few days of not exercising.... and most mom’s will attest that giving birth is the toughest workout of your life. Jillian, we know you have had to push through times of being tired and just plain feeling sick 🤢 to make sure you stayed healthy and strong for yourself and for baby. You’re an inspiration to all mom’s out there! Right now, the TEAM voting sits at 6 votes that you’re having a boy, 4 votes that it’s a girl! We love ya gurl! Quinn is going to be a great big sister. #fitmom #fitpregnancy #preggars #fitmama #johnston #boyorgirl #momsinmotion ... See MoreSee Less

I can't wait to hear about new baby!!!!!!👶💓
Aw, thanks Terri! I couldn’t have done it (again!) without yours and Kelly’s encouragement, and my awesome 5:15pm class friends! ❤️ Working out while pregnant is hard. Not working out while pregnant is also hard. Choose your hard! 👏🏻
You are definitely an inspiration! 💪👍🏻😁
Best wishes Jillian. You’re children have an awesome mom who takes care of her self so she can be there for them. You’re an inspiration. Go girl.💪
Jillian just a little longer! Best wishes😊
You’re such a badass Jillian Reeping! 👊🏻
Congrats, Jillian Reeping!! Good work too, you look great!
Way to go, Jillian Reeping. I know how much you have enjoyed your workout crew.

Meet Deb. We should all be more like her. Deb has been an ITC TEAM Member for about a year and a half. Always comes in with a great can-do attitude and gives it her all. She’s 55 plus yrs. old. About 8 weeks ago, she broke her foot. When I got that text, we immediately hopped on the phone. I asked her to commit to making this broken foot the best thing that ever happened to her core and upper body. She accepted that challenge and EXCELLED. During her time in her boot, she lost bodyfat, maintained her lean muscle and rocked her core! #johnstoniowa #behappy #wellness #advocare #behealthy #befit #belikedeb #fitness #fitnessmotivation ...

Wild goose chase, literally. ITC Staff and Members got their workout in outdoors today as they helped animal rescue capture this poor gal with a broken wing. She was not. Happy. But hopefully she will heal up and come on back to the pond soon. #wildgoosechase #itcdm #fitness #animallovers #wellnes #bethechange ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you everyone who helped me catch the goose. If it weren't for the manager and some of her members who helped me Corner the goose in addition to the kayaker, he would never of been caught. I'm certainly glad I had a bunch of physically fit people to help.😊
Thank you so much for helping!
Good job 👏🏻
