There may be a blizzard outside (like probably more than 5 inches accumulated) but the grind never stops 💯 loving these halting snatches at 90kg/198lb for a few sets of 2💪🏼
After having a really bad day on Saturday I told myself this week was going to go well no matter what. My body feels meh and I have a new puppy to take care of, but the competition won’t care about those excuses and neither will I. Attack your training sessions and forget any of the other stressors in your life for a few hours, the results speak for themselves. Have yourself a merry little Monday my friends 😉🎄 ...
desperately wishing I was @ the gym 🥺
Still consistently and slowly losing weight, enjoying a moderate activity level that I’m not used and let me tell y’all what. Hardcore powerlifting is difficult when you can only lift 3-4 days a week 😂
Anyway happy Monday to all my loves & i hope y’all dominate this week! xoxo 💕 ...
Can you spot the difference between these two photos? Not really?
The photo on the left was taken a year ago, photo on the right today. Since then I’ve put on about 5kg - hard to tell right?
Often we think that putting on weight means putting on body fat but that’s just not what happens when your powerlifting or doing any kind of weight training. I hate it when people say lifting weights makes you bulky - it’s just not the case! ...
As a quick recap, I tried starting the whole official training process in June 2018. Hurt my groin muscle and stopped for a couple months then hurt my shoulder badly and stopped chest and shoulders and arm workouts for about 6 months total, then took off another 2-3 months of training to focus on finding a job and doing the moving routine. So I’ve only had about 4-6 month period of hard training😒
FINALLY, I have moved, have a support system, spirits are high, enthusiasm is high, and I love working out again. I am now training chest, arms, and shoulders again, but afraid I will never do flat bench press again nor can I yet do pull-ups to this day. But now the progress is coming and I can physically see the changes and look forward to each week as another challenge to beat the last.
This lifestyle is definitely not for everyone, with all the sacrifices of time and relationships that get neglected, but on the flip side u will learn way more about yourself during the entire process, like patience, discipline, organization, time management, nutrition, how close of bond u have with ppl, cooking skills, structure, planning, faith, trust, selfishness, pride, and I’m sure much more. Whether good or bad, you get to find out more about yourself and get to choose the good or bad when it’s all done. .
I look forward to dropping the fat 1st, then seeing where I can have my debut next year!
This is my new beginning and can’t wait to just see the progress over the next couple months! Let’s git it 💪🏽
