CMS-DUP W2D3 - Easy 8's on the Trap Bar (finished with a set of 12) and 5's on Feet-Up Bench. Work capacity has shot ⬆️⬆️⬆️ these past few weeks. Getting through sessions much more quickly too. #feelsgoodman
Alright. So here is where I'm sitting as of today. 279. I'm down in size for sure due to my own carelessness (missing meals, not enough sleep, poor planning, lack of motivation, LIFE lol) We all have set backs but staying lean and keeping strength. But this pretty much starts my journey to nationals later this year. I have a lot of work to do but I won't disappoint #RoadTo305 😈 stay tuned lol
Yesterday's setbacks are today's motivation! Since I'm a little deeper in my cut, energy and strength are down. Yesterday, I struggled pushing thru my chest workout, just to hit 10 reps at 135lbs. Today was back day and nothing better to test the body than deadlifts. Grabbing the trap bar, I did the following progression: 140x10, 230x8, 320x5, 410x5 (pictured here). Finished of the set with a drop set (320x5, 230x8, 140x10). Needless to say, this is exactly what I needed to keep my spirits high. I even thru in a @murfbot inspired dance at the end! Moral of the story...you will have bad days in the gym where ya may not feel like you did your best. Just get some sleep and when you open your eyes, you have a new day to get back at it!!! . . . . #npcmensphysique#npc#physique#mensphysique#deadlift#motiv8nuelite#motiv8nu#murfbotworkouts#teammotiv8nuelite#teammotiv8nu#gains#gainz#gym#gymlife#dynamicfitness#dfc

Kicking off 2017 off right. I said that this is the year where nothing can stop me and fear of failure will no longer exist well today i hit a bench PR OF 295 at a body weight of 195# before this my highest bench was 265. Only more great things to come this year, more workouts, more goals being completed and more people being helped. Let's go!
"The ghosts of all the women you used to be are all so proud of who you have become, a storm child made of wild and flame." ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• We all have a past. We all have things we have gone through, both good and bad, that have brought us to where we are at this very moment, that have made us who we are today. We all have stories. Stories of struggle and pain. Stories of success and joy. We all can look back at old versions of who we once were. We all have ghosts of our former selves, some that may haunt us and others that may watch over us. We all were someone before we were us. •••• Your own history can serve two purposes. It can either drag you down and continuously inhibit your success, or it can be used to propel you towards your goals and ignite your fire to become someone you always knew you could be. It is entirely up to you. The people we once were are not demons, for they made you who you claim to be today. •••• Acknowledge who you were in order to celebrate who you are. Never be ashamed of your former self, but do not let it define who you will become in the future. It's up to you the part that your past, no matter how painful or joyful it may be, will play in your life. We all were someone before we were us, and all the ghosts of our former selves should forever remain a constant reminder of just how far we have come and how much further we are blessed to be able to go. . ••••• Today was a rough day, but tomorrow will be better. I am stronger than those girls I once was. . . . . . . . . . . . . #improvementseason#postshow#reversedieting#fitfam#fitchicks#fitgirls#fitness#fitspo#fitstagram#girlswholift#girlswhosquat#girlswithmuscle#liftheavy#traindirty#eatclean#npc#npcbikini#bikiniprep#npcbikinicompetitor#bikiniathlete#bodybuilding#bodybuilder#iifym#iifymgirls#cleaneating#flexibledieting#rememberwhyyoustarted#metamorphosis
Freedom - true FREEDOM - is found in the heart and soul. It is not a physical cage. . YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM - unless you decide you are. I am a survivor. I fighter. I realist. AND UNSTOPPABLE. Stand in my way, fine... I will find a way around you (or I will run your ass over). Don't like my words, my actions, or me? fine. - nothing you can do can affect me UNLESS I LET IT. Unless I begin to allow myself to become passive and complacent. I don't think we plan to be weak or passive... it happens over time. . Don't let anything and anyone to defeat you! . Comment below if you feel me on this one ☝🏻
