Was training with my younger brother tonight. Working on speed 💪🏼 60kgs feels alright at the moment so time to up the weight next week!

My squat depth & technique has never been the greatest at my height - but that's why we #grind
To become stronger we must face our weaknesses

Really kicking myself for the way I neglected legs for my first couple years training. I had decided because I'm 6'7, my legs would always look shit and there was no point trying. So I'd train legs maybe once per week, if that, and only about 10 sets total.
I'm now realizing I actually have decent leg genetics for a tall athlete, and they've packed on quite a bit of size in the last 6 months consistently training them atleast twice per week. I've incorporated a mixture of high volume and low volume on seperate days and I think ultimately that's made the difference, along with the frequency of course.
The lesson from today to anyone still reading this small essay, is DON'T QUIT BEFORE YOU'VE EVEN TRIED. If you really want something, put in some effort! You never know what you could be capable of. 📸 is a few months old. I was training with box squats. I've since swapped to squats without a box as I feel the box inhibits quad activation and is primarily a posterior-chain based movement.

Few clips from back & bi's last night.
We hit 5 sets of each exercise with a minimum of 12 reps
Very short breaks in between to keep that heart rate up

Ble bare 2x2 med 147.5 kg i dag. Skuffende dagsform, men ikke rart med tanke på at kostholdet har vært "YOLO" de siste dagene. Jaja, back on track soon✌🏻

So we gotta make everyday count!

Experimenting with some upper body “push” eccentrics for the next several weeks or so. Holy soreness.
Pushups are easily one of the most underrated fundamental blocks for getting stronger in not only your upper body but core wise as well.
I tried some increased ROM decline pushups to promote full scapular movement and, well, all I can say is damn..
My chest, serratus , and lats were blown the f up. I really like the eccentrics with this as it mandates you to keep a good plank position the entire time. I actually filmed this twice, this was my last set of 4 sets, and the camera is a fantastic tool to make sure you are keeping a good plank. Still have some work to do.
Did some eccentric flat bench after this and that REALLY sucked after finishing this.
Looking forward to more of this masochist madness for the future.

Overhead squats are arguably one of the most technical and challenging lower body exercises out there.
Taxing not only on your lower body strength and mobility but also requiring total shoulder flexion and stability.
I’d argue that if you can perform them *well* you’ve got some pretty solid mobility.
Even with less than a full plate on each side, these were stupid challenging however I’m happy that I was able to do them without needing my romaleos.
Granted my mechanics were not spot on, I’m happy with how they went. Definitely going to work on them more in the future.
Doing these without the safety bars was honestly not the best and safest decision, almost gave up after the 6th rep, but I also wanted to see how they looked mechanic wise.
Also key note, I’m 6’5” so with my wingspan, that bar is 3+ feet above my head... Keeping the bar overhead at that height while getting into a full squat is hard as f*ck. So yes, I’m pretty damn happy with how these went.

To improve posture and mobility in squats as well as working on the posterior chain it is good to do front squats.

Taller people like myself have longer levers and mobility can be compromised in hips as well as knees and tibial translation over the ankle - front squats are a good exercise to isolate these issues.

Tough night
Tough morning
Tough workout
My mean girl was turned up on full blast today when this was my 2nd move into the workout.

Gosh I look & feel awkward in this specific exercise.

On someone that is pint-sized it looks automatic.

Not on an almost 6 foot tall woman that has really long arms, long legs, 1 bum knee & 2 left feet of you know what I mean.... Immediately I wanted to press stop on the video.. But I stopped myself.

You need to see this. You need to see my struggling & not just TALK about it.

This process is not easy I’ve been up front about that.

But it has been worth every penny & second I’ve put into it.

To the awkward athlete- you weren’t made t be like anyone else.

Embrace it & love it. That’s what makes you unique.

And that’s your way to spread the love to others who are like you!! So I’m spreading the love today! I want you to feel your best— even if that means you have to come to terms with your flaws & decide if they need to be improved or not.

I will be working on improving myself next month when we focus on getting us Summer Strong!

I’m looking to mentor 5 women who want to join me in looking & feeling their best!! Fill out the application below!! https://tinyurl.com/buildabetteryousurvey

*Physique Update*

Getting there! Strength is going up on a weekly basis and I’m getting leaner at a moderate pace.

I am tall. In high school, people always assumed I played volleyball 🏐 or basketball 🏀 .. nope, I played soccer ⚽️.
.
Now my sport is CrossFit. Also not ideal for being tall. But I love it!🏋🏼‍♀️
While shorter people may fly through most WODs with their ideal biomechanics and shorter levers, I gladly take my wins on the rower, rope climbs, and box jumps.
I used to complain that it takes longer for me to go through the full range of motion on stuff like squats and HSPUs, but I don’t care anymore.
I found a sport I love.
And that’s the key to staying active throughout your life. Find something that you love! Who cares if your body isn’t ideal for it, or if it doesn’t come as naturally to you. Just do it for the love of the game.
If you do, you just might end up being better than you thought. And certainly happier than if you didn’t try.😘 #justdoit
