When you can’t train so you have to do something to keep yourself entertained... I decided to make a boxing ring for @gorilla_martial_arts and a prototype elevated lifting platform for @bangor_barbell_est2014 and then time flys past!!! #bangorsbestgym #bangorsbestgyms #bangorsstrongestgym #fabrication #welding #woodwork #manskills #gym

(Long Caption Alert 🚨)
After a certain point of a plateauing, you have to accept that your failure isn’t due to; stress, bad technique, poor sleep, inefficient programming or bad genetics. It’s a basic lack of work ethic and robustness.

This weight should be easy by now, but missing the occasional set, consistently getting poor sleep, missing training days and not putting 100% in has really caught up to me. Looking back at the last year of training in my head, I probably had about 2 months of consistent training and nutrition, and it shows in the results.
This to me is a real lesson that you only get out of life what you put in. Now it’s time to show myself how much I really want this. 4 Plates I’m coming for you πŸ‘€
Shoutout to @osian_davies8 and @mr_benchpress_ for hyping me up, making sure I don’t die, and then cheering me up too πŸ˜‚πŸ€™πŸ» #gym #powerlifting #motivation #motivationalquotes #truth #strength #training #squats #sbd #plateau #weights #fitness #bangorsstrongestgym #bangorsbestgym

When the gym is so busy that 6 combo racks are being used at once you are rather thankful that you have a trick up your sleeve that frees up another 46sqm of the gym 😎 this is what happened last summer just before the gym got an up grade and it’s at that capacity again that we have to do something ASAP!!! Keep your eyes out for the next evolution of #bangorsbestgym #bangorsstrongestgym @bangor_barbell_est2014

Haven’t benched in 5 weeks but thought I’d give it a little go today
160kg smooth
170kg not so smooth
180kg not moving at all!! not really fussed at the moment tho I’m sure it will come back when I’m focused on it again #benchpress #strengthtraining #bangorsbestgym #bangorsstrongestgym @harry_owen95 @smallweakandginger @rdr1980

Can’t win them all. Ffs. We’ve hit peak fatigue.
.
Nearly doubled the equivalent of 10kg more than my previous max though and form didn’t break down horribly.

Thanks for the spot @biceps_before_boys and @Kevinidontknowyourlastname

Well this hit me hard in the feels the other day and I’m not ashamed to say I screenshot @biceps_before_boys story... Nhiam (Neeeev) has been a member @bangor_barbell_est2014 for just over 12 months now and she is in almost everyday doing her thing which is quietly getting stronger and being involved with everyone else’s journey to greater levels of strongness, Nhiam posted these after a deadlift max sessions on Friday where everyone just all got behind eachother and encouraged the people that where lifting to do their best the atmosphere was electric and must of left an impression on her that night! Even tho she wasn’t taking part in the lifting she was the one taking the videos of my personal lifts because she got good angle game when it comes to lifting videos 😎
Really happy to have @biceps_before_boys here for at least another year at @bangor_barbell_est2014 #bangorsbestgym #bangorsstrongestgym #motivationalpost

210kgs actually happened so I hit an all time PB πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰I’m not going to lie I had to double check the weight on the bar because I thought I miss loaded it, this was not programmed in but 202.5kgs moved well enough to give it a go.

On the 13th of May I said next time... on the 20th of July (8 weeks later) next time showed up and I kept my promise to pull 600lbs off the floor!!! I wrote something down in 2016, I wrote down that 2018 I was going to have the best years training I’ve had ever in my life so far and that my body would feel the best it’s ever felt so far so good I’ve kept my promises to myself that I would train religiously and that I would make remaining injury free my number 1 priority! there’s 5ish months left in the year for me to get my goals of a 250kg squat 200kg bench and 300kg deadlift πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ Swipe to see how differently my deadlift went in the space of 8 weeks

First time doing sumo this year, maybe even longer. Worked up to 240kg but didn't record it. Typical.. dropped to 220 again #bangorsstrongestgym #bangorsbestgym #hybridizestrength #hookgrip #hybridizestrength #barbellend #pinkkitwanker #dyndufi

When @griffiths.josh pisses you off by giving up so it makes you hit an Impromptu deadlift PB triple #winning #thanksjosh #bangorsbestgym #bangorsstrongestgym

Mixed session today. Was aiming to smash band squats and deads. Band squats were bouncy but deads weren’t being my friend. Meant to be 200x4 but only achieved 200x3, twice. Probs tired from squats but also maybe because I haven’t had a lasagne in a while.

Big Terry is back and he approved so that’s a bonus I guess

When you know your squad has your back... YOU CANT FAIL!! Myself, Josh and Dan all went for some crazy PBs on Friday night and I can honestly say I don’t see an ounce of fear in any of our eyes because we trust everyone that has trained with us and around us, we know everyone in the gym wants us to make those lifts and if we don’t make them are there to pick us back up!
Mad love to everyone that trains down @bangor_barbell_est2014 for being part of something special for being more than just a member for being involved in helping others and for being open minded and accepting help from others! This small shed in the middle of Bangor is a place where we all get stronger fitter and better at whatever we choose and the support is there on tap!

Great day on Friday in @bangor_barbell_est2014 with @mr_benchpress_ and @rdr1980 all hitting PBs! Hit a huge PB for me with 230kg. Looked so smooth I thought I'd go for 240kg #yolo but it wasn't there this day. Thank you @smallweakandginger @rdr1980 @dean.insideoutstrength @mr_benchpress_ and the hype man @harry_owen95 for ensuring I didn't die. 240kg may not have been there but i have full trust in the coach that it will get smashed in the next few months. 250kg is the goal for the end of the year!

10 weeks ago vs Tonight
200kg in wraps vs 200kg in sleeves
Pretty happy with how this last training block has gone and looking forward to the next... I might actually get to complete a full block of low bar squats without being plagued by niggles!

Epic evening with the lads @rdr1980 @griffiths.josh @harry_owen95 tonight down the gym @bangor_barbell_est2014
Went for some PBs on the squats while I didn’t actually hit an all time PB it felt really good putting decent weights on my back first video of 200kg is my equal knee sleeve Pb then 215kg is 5kg less than my knee wraps PB but a knee sleeve Pb of 15kg and I felt pretty good training tonight so went for the 500lbs / 227.5kg squat and just missed it!! I think being able to see the spotter in the mirror while I was grinding the rep out put me off as well as it being an absolute max for me!! It’s no problem tho I know after the strongman event and the next block of squats that 500lbs squat will be mine πŸ’ͺ🏼
Big up to the video master @biceps_before_boys for the footage!

Been training highbar back squats for the last 6 weeks it’s been the longest I’ve been able to squat with a bar on my back without being injured... so I can front squat without injury, now highbar without injury and got my fingers crossed now to be able to low bar back squat... first video is highbar squat and second video is of my low bar back squat! Got a good feeling that there is still a lot more progress to come from my squats in 2018 πŸ’ͺ🏼
