Embrace The Suck - Leg Training Camaraderie
"Sometimes what you are going through sucks, but you are going through it with your lifting partners and just embrace it!"
The inner TEAM here at Destination linked up for a leg training session. They discuss how they cultivate the drive to put out 100% effort during LEG DAY.
"I like lifting with stronger dudes because it gives me something to chase." - James Mottu
"At the end of the day, when the lights fade out, you have to look in the mirror and be happy with what you're putting out." - Josh Smith
James Mottu is often the first face you see as you visit destination and has a background in powerlifting and bodybuilding. He and Josh Smith, a powerlifter and trainer at destination, have been training to prepare James to compete at the Phil Heath coming up in 5 weeks. Here, they link up with videographer Nick Del Toro because he wanted to learn the proper mechanics and cues for a quad focused leg day with the pendulum squat and hip press along with building some mental fortitude with a f.ck ton of reps on the leg extension.
Moral of the story with showing this session is to, "find what you like (in the gym) stick with it and dig in with like minded gym buds."
