Huge thank you's to everybody who reached out to me.
The previous post was never about likes, sympathy or attention. Just being real and vulnerable on my own page.
So thank you. 💖
Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Key points to think about...
..
Pacing is everything. ..
Know your capacity in these movements. ..
Whoever you are this is a long time to do these movements for. ..
Transitions will be key. Wasting time will add up.
..
Start steady!! ..
This will either be limited by aerobic power or muscular endurance. Know your limiter in this and discuss the strategy with your coach accordingly, both will require slightly different approaches.
..
FOCUS ON YOU. Fuck the pace everyone else goes at. Know what you are capable of and stick with it.

#squateveryday 2.42
Six weeks down and I’m still kicking. Came in super focused for this session and knocked down this 445 with authority. Hit some chins after that and then 275 for a quick 5 on the bench. The issues I came with when I started (lazy right leg, hip shift) seem to have all but disappeared. But let me not jinx myself. I’m getting closer and closer to my goal each week. Gotta sharpen the blade every single day.

Had a tough workout today. I decided to see how heavy I could squat with low bar. I got up to 215lbs, but my form looked horrible and I called it quits (folding like a table still). This video is one of my warmups at I think 175lbs, before I really started folding over. I decided I'm not going to worry about how heavy I can lift for now and just keep working on my form. I finished off the squat portion of my workout with 3x5 box squats using 135lbs to help cut my depth and focus on keeping my core braced on the ascent. After squats I did 5x2 deadlifts using 215lbs. I finished off my workout with a 2500m row.

2 second paused bench...well, it seemed like 5 seconds...isn’t it funny how perception of time can change so easily? In any case, 205x5x3 RPE 7. I’m ready for deadlifts tomorrow. .

#tbt to Battle of the Berserkers when I cut 18lbs in 6 weeks. Training like this isn't for everyone..it takes a great deal of time, energy, and prioritization. It's uncomfortable, challenging, and will test your limits. Training like this is so much more than showing up to the gym in a cute outfit and having social hour by the water fountain. Often times, I am in here by myself, struggling to get the next rep, hoping today won't be the day I die alone under the bar 🤣 .
Training like this is also the most rewarding, results getting, fulfilling, empowering, life enhancing thing I have found for myself. I do it because it is what lights my fire, and truly is my "life multivitamin". I am confident in who I am and proud of what I've accomplished, yet humble enough to know that there can always be improvement. The key is to keep showing up each day. Little by little, day by day, it DOES add up. What are you choosing to build each day? .

#tbt to the Grid Invitational in Anaheim and testing out @eleikosport ‘s version of “The Pig” with @ajordanjr. The weight was between 400-500# I believe, but the pros got to play with 600# I believe. The coolest part of Grid for me, outside of the unique team concept, was that it incorporated all sorts of odd object elements not involving a barbell. That sort of stuff is my jam so when you throw in a competitive element it’s a party! Good times for sure. #thestrengthagenda #grid #strongman #gripandrip #tagteam #barbellspecialist #strengthathlete #throwbackthursday #tillthewheelsfalloff

🚨585lbs x2 PR🚨 It’s been a loooong time since I had this weight in my hands and damn it, it feels good!!!! Having 585 as a working set has been a goal and I hit that mf on a commercial gym bar lol. Can’t wait to pull consistently on a deadlift bar again @leskeyes .

What is the dumbbell urlacher? Read below ⬇️
-
-
The dumbbell urlacher is a much better alternative to the typical upright row that has long been deemed as being a high risk low reward exercise to it placing your shoulders in a position for impingement.
-
-
It works the same muscles as the upright row and is an excellent finisher to any upper body routine. I usually aim to perform 2 to 3 sets at 10 to 12 reps.

Credits to @athleanx for posting a video on his YouTube channel and giving me the idea to use this excercise!!

Had a moment of extreme anger and frustration that these deadlifts did not move fast enough. Then I remembered that if I can pull 325 on a bad day then I’ve got nothing to complain about. #NOTHINGSPECIAL


325x2
315x2
310x2 (last set shown)

#tbt to a non-lifting moment (weird, right?) Halloween nails! Lol I *might* get my nails done like... 1-2x a year. I'm actually not even sure I've done it this year at all. I don't enjoy it, it's insanely boring and not relaxing whatsoever. But I do enjoy the end product for about 48-72 hours before it starts coming off 😆 And yes, I know about gels and acrylics but they just aren't mah thing. My lifestyle is not conducive to lovely, constantly painted nails lol
💅
