β€’ With a kick in the nuts/back I’ve had to pull out of the YNE open.
β€’Yes it’s only a divisional.
β€’Yes there will be other competitions.
.
....However.....
.
β€’ This decision wasn’t taken lightly at all and I won’t lie it is absolutely gutting especially with all the hard work we put into this but I know deep down I wouldn’t hit the numbers I want with the injury I recently acquired no matter how much I roll on balls and could potentially put me in a worse place in the long run.
.
β€’Big thanks to @annaloots @the.injury.specialist For seeing me so fast and getting me at least able to walk.
.
β€’And a big apology to coach @harry_owen95 And everyone who helped me through this peak @bangor_barbell_est2014 (you all know who you are) .
β€’ Nature of the beast I guess πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ just gotta come back stronger than ever πŸ’ͺ🏼
.
β€’ This bread still needs to be got and this time we will make it into toast.

When training has been piss poor all week... then a big squad sesh down at @bangor_barbell_est2014 restores your faith that you can do the lifting thing. .
.
Today’s banded bench and spotto hitting many a PBs.
.
Thanks to @smallweakandginger for the angles and everyone ft in film and off camera πŸŽ₯ .

Technique tonight was as sloppy as a soup sandwich.

.
Not particularly happy with any of my presses but
Hit my max for a few reps though so some positives as well as @cheeriows saving me.
.
.
Sorry coach @harry_owen95 I got too greedy. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Tempo dubs with a tan PB. .
First three weeks of prep going surprising well.
.
Many factors... is it the Gummy bears? 🐻 is it the hat? 🧒 is it actually following the program? πŸ“
Who knows πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

If I stare at the bar long enough it may just lift itself .

Some say I’m still there waiting.
