Deload behind me... So I got out the ol’ best belt for the first time in over 6 months today. I forgot how awesome this makes my back feel! I will be incorporating the belt for more of my regular training going forward to see if it helps done of this constant back stiffness I've been feeling. I won't be eliminating my beltless focus, just reducing the amount of it.

I am very excited to announce I'll be delivering a presentation at the Chicago Strength Symposium with some of my great friends on January 13th! Hope to see you guys there. Full disclosure I am less excited about Chicago weather in January, but I will soldier on.
Tickets are super affordable and available at chicagostrengthsymposium.com

10PM squatting is rough. I really wanted to get this session in before the weekend so I can stay on track. 365lb on the bar here which (I think) is the best beltless load I've ever handled for that many reps.. so that's cool. It's still 150lbs shy of my best set with a belt though so I have work yet to do. Always more to work on.

The load on the bar is less than exciting BUT I managed to deadlift from the floor last night with minimal to no pain in my hamstring. This is a big sign of progress and marks the point where I can start actually increasing my load tolerance and start training this sweet peach again nahmean? 🍑

Fun day today at my first open mat. It consisted of me getting my ass handed to me for 10x 6 minute rounds- including the one this photo is from with @omnomnomnomcookies that resulted in her catching me in a rather uncomfortable arm bar, not the ending I wanted 😉 Good day though! A little better every time.

355 for fahve today as the upward progression continued on my beltless squats. This is about the point my knee and hamstring crapped out previously so I'm excited that my rep work is back to this already. They felt harder than I expected but a concerned gym goer alerted me to the fact that the floor in this corner of the gym is slanted... Good to know. 😒. Maybe some singles soon...? 🤔

Nothing especially notable in terms of load on the bar here but this is the first time I've done full ROM squats without knee pain in several months. We makin' progress boys and girls.

I've made some big strides these past few weeks in my hamstring rehab thanks to some smart training decisions with the help of my trusted friend @quinn.henochdpt. I'm excited to keep the momentum up and get back into shape/

Turns out it's pretty realistic.

Sitting in my CPR class today and can't help but ask myself... Where's Michael Scott when I need him?

This is a bit of a flashback Friday repost... I was digging through my old posts looking for some training motivation and found this gem. This is my best squat set ever by a big margin. Things like this serve to remind me of what I can accomplish with focus, hard work, and the support of good friends like @bryce_tsa and @silentmikke spotting me here. I'll get back to this. Soon enough. No motivational quotes required... Just a reminder that I am never working hard enough.

Did some of the ol' #skwaats with 345lb last night. This real estate gig has been keeping me busy... This my training has been rushed and I haven't been posting much. I've still been quietly making progress though. I'm slowly getting back to where I want to be. One brick at a time!

What a weekend! @usapowerlifting Raw Nationals 2018 is a wrap and, as always, it was both awesome and exhausting. @thestrengthathlete team put in some damn good work and certainly provided ample challenge for us coaches. These guys all busted their asses all weekend long! Thanks to all the lifters who sought my coaching in preparation for the meet as well as on the platform. See you all in Columbus! 😎
