Portraits from Katy & Cypress

Katy & Cypress are wonderful places to live and work just outside of Houston – no wonder both areas are home to so many great people and organizations.

VoyageHouston is all about supporting creatives and risk takers – from makeup artists, fashion designers and music producers to chefs, entrepreneurs and more.  In our Portraits series we try to celebrate their work by sharing some of our favorite shots we’ve come across.  We’ve share shots from the Katy & Cypress below.

BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!!! Has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but you definitely just sang that theme song in your head and I have your attention now🤓😂 So let’s talk about muscle growth and development since that’s one of the topics I get asked about on a regular basis💪🏼 Here are a few of my top pieces of advice when it comes to becoming a lean mean muscle building machine: – PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD: You’ve probably heard this term at some point before, and honestly it’s really super simple. All this refers to is constantly forcing your muscles to have to work harder than they were working before.. “Progressively Overloading” them. The thing I’ve found that works best for me is using the notes section in my phone to quickly write down the number of sets and reps I do for each exercise with the amount of weight I used. Then about every 1-2 weeks I try to make sure I’m increasing the weight by 5-10 lbs. on those exercises, constantly forcing them to work harder than before💪🏼 – MIND-MUSCLE CONNECTION: This is one that I actually struggled to fully grasp the importance of until the last year or so. We’ve all seen “that guy” at the gym that looks like he’s trying to invent a new dance move while attempting to curl 60 lb. dumbbells in front of the mirror right?🕺 The thing is, by using so many different body parts and swinging all your body weight around, you aren’t even really working the one muscle group that exercise is intended to work🙈 Instead, try using a much more controlled and deliberate motion when lifting the weight, squeezing at the top and bottom of each movement and connecting your mind to the one muscle group you’re trying to work🧠 You’ll be amazed at how much of a difference this can make! – NUTRITION AND RECOVERY: It’s no secret, more than half the battle when it comes to your overall Health & Fitness goals is won in the kitchen👨🏻‍🍳 And when it comes to being able to build lean muscle, you’ll need to be in a “caloric surplus”, which means you need to be consuming more calories than you’re burning off on a daily basis. For me, when I’m in a “building” or “improvement” phase, CONTINUED IN COMMENTS👇🏼
