Home MOTIVATION SIMEON PANDA’S MOST INSANE INSTAGRAM SHOTS Simeon Panda - It's Arms house Friday and I cannot wait to smash it! I want an OFFENSIVE pump today MOTIVATION SIMEON PANDA’S MOST INSANE INSTAGRAM SHOTS Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter SIMEON PANDA INSTAGRAM: simeonpanda FACEBOOK: Simeon Panda TWITTER: @SimeonPanda Hardcore Emblem Stringer: Dark Grey/Red Simeon Panda – I had a conversation with someone at the gym the other day, he was saying he didn’t understand why people go so hard in the gym, when they don’t get paid to train. He said he understood my passion because I get paid; I politely reminded him that I had trained for well over a decade before I started earning from fitness. Passion for lifting is why I train, and an extreme desire to be the best I can be. This is why I presume many of us attend the gym, day in day out, we love to lift.Irrespective of any fitness career goals many of you may have, do not lose focus, keep the passion you started with, it holds more importance than you may realise. Today’s arms session was powerful! Will post video highlights tomorrow Caught up with Parker Physique & Zac Smith at Gold’s. We were supposed to kill an arms session together after day 1 of the expo, but I was super late, I did have a good excuse! I spent the whole of day 1 at the expo (and subsequently day 2) of the expo meeting, talking and taking pictures with people at my stand, didn’t take a break and didn’t get a chance to eat a full meal at all, so after closing the stand I had to get a big meal in before hitting the gym, and couldn’t make it on time.We will hit a session in future and load it on YouTube for you all – Simeon Panda Big shout to Maxthebody who I bumped into while cycling through Venice on Monday. I looked over from quite some distance, couldn’t see his face but knew there’s only one dude that shreddedIt was only right to join him for some pull ups – Simeon Panda Standing at this peak on Runyon Canyon yesterday, I could see the Hollywood sign, the significance will become apparent in due time, of that I am sure.Your dreams and aspirations are on the other side of hard work and discipline, persevere and get what you deserve. Sure does feel good to be back in LA and even better to be back at #GoldsGymVenice I’m going to enjoy this week, and I’m looking forward to meeting many of you at the #LAFitExpo this weekend, at the SP_Aesthetics booth 1464 . Taken in Australia last year by taz_k_photographer Hope everyone has a great day, I’m looking forward to a good legs session. New sp_aesthetics SP*A ‘Essentials’ Stringer, now available Simeon Panda – It’s Arms house Friday and I cannot wait to smash it! I want an OFFENSIVE pump today ALIEN VS PREDATOR: Workout Warfare Coming Soon! Simeon Panda & Ulisses in the most epic, intergalactic training session you will ever see! Coming to YouTube very soon. I’ve never envied another persons physique, it serves no purpose. I have however looked across the gym floor, seen someone killing their session, and had to evaluate if I was really giving my all. When I train I aim to give my best, I would feel genuine disappointment if I knowingly slacked during a session. Nobody knows how hard you are working but you. You’re feeling each rep, you know if there was more in the tank, you know if you should have gone for extra reps or up the weight, don’t let yourself down.So whilst making constant comparisons to others physiques isn’t in your best interest, I see absolutely no harm in setting a standard, that you won’t let anybody work harder than you! – Simeon Panda My shredded cousin came down from China for a Christmas morning workout. Who remembers the last time he was down, when he took 3 scoops of pre workout if you don’t know, search ‘took 3 scoops’ in YouTube. I eat clean 95% of the time blah blah, stay lean year round blah blah BUT next 3 days the rule book will be slashed!I’m eating whatever I feel like when I feel like (will still be training daily though! Behave yourself) Let’s see if my abs disappearHope everyone has a great Christmas or just a great day if you don’t celebrate it Yes genetics plays a big role in the shape your physique takes, but do not for a minute discount the amount of work needed to grow.If you do not know your anatomy please learn it, learn the muscles being targeted in each exercise you do, so that every workout is structured for purpose. – Simeon Panda ‘Why so serious bro?’ Because I’d just finished a workout and felt like an absolute BEAST! I could not reflect this emotion with a smile. ‘Gotcha!’ A prime example of dialogue I would have, with those asking for smiles in every pic The PUMP! Firstly, what is it?The pump refers to blood volume increasing within the muscles as they require more nutrients and oxygen. (This post isn’t about to get remotely scientific, but you needed to know that basic info before I proceed.)So what is this post about? Well I took this picture on Monday after a powerful chest session, and noticed my chest looked like two luxury duck down cushions this was of course a result of ‘the pump’Now whilst I would love to walk around like this everyday, I am fully aware of the pump, how long it lasts and what I look like without it, BUT understandably many of you do not.So I’m writing this post not to lower your expectations of seeing your fitness inspo’s in real life (weirdly I get the opposite ‘you look even bigger in real life’ which I’m always confused and assumed by) but to just highlight that you won’t see us with ‘the pump’ in the supermarket picking up a bunch of asparagus, looking like we just re-racked 315 after benching a clean ten – Simeon Panda In the beginning there was no structure, then I learned anatomy and it gave every exercise a purpose. #Details . In the Zone! Just Mean…Just Lift. I judged yet another show last night, (Musclemania® & Fitness UK? Natural Bodybuilding Championships, congratulations to all who took part) I’ve found as always, that it has made me more enthused to be better and work even harder. I find when I watch/judge shows, while critiquing those on stage, I am doing the same to myself, ‘If only his Delts were a little bigger…’ Etc and then I think ‘I could do with bigger [insert body part] I leave the show energised to put more work in.For those of you who have never been to a bodybuilding show I highly recommend it, even if you have absolutely no aspirations to step on stage. I’m sure this feeling I always have after shows is shared amongst all who are seeking to improve their physiques. – Simeon Panda ‘2 Chainz!’ Peep the sign at the back, yes I destroyed arms with Bradley Martyn and CHanel Coco Brown at CT Fletcher’s new gym Iron Addicts Gym LV, I shot with Myprotein answering the questions you sent in, so be sure to subscribe to the Myprotein channel to see the Q&A and my YouTube channel for the workout vids that are coming (there’s so much great footage, SUBSCRIBE! Do not miss it)Catch me at the Myprotein booth 756 tomorrow at the Olympia Expo, looking forward to meeting you all. Expendables 4? 5 or 6 maybe? Sure there’s a role for me, someone shoot Mr Stallone a quick email Had a great time shooting at Battlefield Vegas if you’re in town go check them out! I cannot wait to show you guys the footage, it’s crazy#battlefieldvegas #expendables When you have patience, you get to enjoy some of the satisfaction of achieving your goal at the very start, as you know it’s only a matter of time before it truly becomes yours.The fitness industry can be very confusing, almost every ad tells you ‘you can achieve your goal in no time at all’ false bloody false! (I’m British, we say bloody as an alternative to straight up expletives) I never say you can look like X in X time, that statement has no substance. I am a realist, I know how long it all takes to build muscle or cut fat naturally, it’s not quick and it’s not easy. (Just so you understand, the natural distinction has to made, as there is a considerable difference in timescale and potential where muscle growth or fat reduction is concerned. Add to that I am talking from experience, so my points to you come from a lifetime as a natural bodybuilder)You’ll excuse my digression as it is the foundation my belief on patience stems on. Building muscle or reducing fat requires patience and hard work, and quite frankly if you lack the fortitude to exercise those two attributes, YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL.I’m at a stage where if I were to win the lottery, after the obvious jubilation, I would feel disappointment that I never got to carry out my blueprint to the end. Robbed of ever knowing my hard work in business and career would get me to the goal I pictured daily. I know everyone’s situation is different and that will effect your feelings on what I just said, however can you understand my thought process? That’s how you should feel about your goals, stop looking for the easy way, stop envying those who you perceive to have had it easy. Struggle is not something to be sought after, but if you’ve had it and made it through, that triumph gives an unmatched satisfaction.Work hard people, achieve, make yourself and the people that care about you proud. – Simeon Panda It was all smiles after completing yet another killer legs blasting session yesterday. I’m already looking forward to my first legs session of the week on Wednesday. Legs days are the best days Spent the day riding up and down Barceloneta Beach with Chanel Coco Brown mad fun! #goodtimes Wings. Ready to fly with my brothers Kai Greene and Ulisses There are many people chasing the possibility of being a recognised figure in the fitness industry. I was asked so many times while taking pictures with people who came to see me at my stand. The one thing I will say, is your physique is only one element, being personable and relatable are almost just as important.I met two IFBB Olympian legends at Emporium Gym Jay Cutler and had the pleasure of training with Kai Greene they both had the attributable characteristics I mentioned, and whilst it is their physiques that put them in the spotlight, I’m sure it is their humility and approach to those that elevate them that win the people’s hearts. – Simeon PandaAnyway, look out for the next pic where I flex back with Kai Greene and my boy Ulisses Hitting some poses with Kai Greene and Ulisses after our massive back session Emporium Gym Definitely one to remember. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to see the video, coming soon. Yes this just happened, we all just trained together and smashed back, subscribe to my YouTube channel, this is a video you really do not want to miss.Simeon PandaDana Linn BaileyKai GreeneUlisses worldBradley MartynKris Gethin I’ve seen Jay Cutler on quite a few occasions at Golds Gym Venice in LA, but never had a conversation as we’d both been hard at training every time. I took the opportunity today at Emporium Gym and I’ve got to say he’s a very down to earth cool guy; went around the gym greeting everyone when he came in, and said bye to everyone individually after his session.Catch me at Bodypower Expo the SP_Aesthetics stand E80 Fri 15th – Sun 17th ‘Those who do not move, do not notice their chains.’ Great arms session today! Ridiculous pump Photo requests at the Simeon Panda & Ulisses World ‘Muscle Training Camp’ went something like this: Can you do a front double bicep? Side chest? Front lat spread and as if they saved the best til last…Can you do the fusion dance? LolAnd there you have it! Dragonball Z fans will be familiar with this, for everyone else consult Google lol. Simeon Panda – Hit the Arnoldc Cassic this morning then destroyed shoulders with Ulisses world and Ana Delia this afternoon, great session! Will post highlights soon. The usual Suspects.Simeon PandaUlisses worldBradley Martyn Looking unapologetically swollen after a powerful arms session with my boy Ulisses world nothing like the pump!
