Strength Training: @fanny_josefine
If you’re looking to build your strength then Fanny Josefine is a must-follow for her mind-boggling workouts. She posts all manner of insane feats of strength and flexibility on Instagram on a weekly basis, watch them and your head will spin just imagining the power it requires to get them going.
Here she is undertaking ‘ring push ups’ which seem pretty difficult, but Fanny ups the level of difficulty by doing the exercise with tyres on her back. It was impressive enough before, she’s just showing off now.
Finally strong enough for ring push ups with tire, but I wonder when I can do it with two or three tires and no, you will not break your wrists if you try. They only get stronger #normalisboring I challenge @kaisafit and @justtrain1 to try this! Who do you want to see do it? #justmovechallenge -//—–//—-//——–//—–//—-//—- #areyounoccoenough #noccobcaa @noccobcaa #purepharma#tyngre #barstarzz#toughest #worldfullofathletes #sonynordic #shredded_academy @instagram #knoxxfitbrz #mhfit#queenofworkouts @gym_help @gym_videos #gym_videos #abgainer#anw9 #athleticstandard @athleticstandard #resorbsuperstars#girlsgonestrong #menshealthmag @menshealthmag #womencrushingitwednesday#sportbible @2xu_sverige @niketraining #super_athletes @super_athletes #befitvideos @befitvideos

BJ Gaddour: @bjgaddour
BJ Gaddour’s Instagram provides inspiration, especially on those days that you just can’t face doing any kind of exercise. He shows that anyone can get into fantastic shape if they’re willing to work hard and make sacrifices.
Many of you may not realize this, but I’m really a FAT GUY faking it as a FIT GUY. No, I do NOT wake up like this. Ha. The picture on the left, taken when I was 17 years old, is what I would really look like if I didn’t put the effort in (and the negative sideburns are ON FLEEK). But I decided to make better choices, even though they require a lot of discipline and sacrifice. I choose to move every day. I choose not to drink (and never have had a drink in my life for personal reasons). I choose not to do drugs. I choose to prioritize sleep and recovery and eliminate unneeded stress in my life. I choose to eat well for my body type (most of the time ). And I chose a career that forced me to lead by example. After all, how can I ask the best of you if I don’t ask the best of myself? So trust me when I say that when it comes to your fitness, the choice is YOURS. #Fitness #Fitspo #Transformation #Motivation #Fitspiration #Choices #BJGaddour #MakeAChange # #

As the Fitness Director of Men’s Health you would expect a high standard of workout and that’s exactly what you get. His posts usually involve a helpful breakdown of the routine, why it’s important and how to maximise its impact. These workouts come on a daily basis and are great if you’re looking to build muscle or burn fat.
TEMPO, TEMPO, TEMPO! #FlexFriday with this arms superset using a slow 4-second negative on each rep for sets of 8 to 12 reps: 1. E-Z curl biceps curl 2. Close-grip barbell bench press Do 3 to 5 rounds of this with 60-90 seconds between exercises. The pump is precious. Have a beautiful weekend, #FitFam!
