Very excited to become a sponsored athlete for @victoryapparelandathletics! Thanks so much @victoryspencergraham for the opportunity to work with you. If you haven't heard of them, go check them out. They have some of the best equipment/apparel that I've used throughout my powerlifting career. I mean look at this hat though... #nofilter#justkiddingthereisafilter
Be careful what you hear. Because you never know what's true. Jealousy runs ramped and it's a sad thing. Even worse when someone listens to negativity and something that isn't true. But I digress. Today was some doubles with the safety bar. I wanna incorporate this a little bit more. Also decided to do some banded deadlifts. Only single sets there. First rep on the last set wasn't pretty at all but finished the lift. Second one was a bit better but defiantly thankful nothing snapped up. #blessed Safety bar squats 245 (or 255) 2x2 275( or 285) 2x2 only one set shown each Banded deadlift 315 (375 at top) 1x2 385 (445 at top) 1x2 (first rep very ugly)
Easy day just working up to my deadlift opener at 485. I've been on a keto diet for about 3 days trying to cut down a little before Battle of the Great Lakes in 12 days, and already feel like crap so I'm surprised it went up this easily
Week 1 - Day 1: Squat, Bench, Deadlift •Weights are lighter but doing this higher rep work was a challenge. I haven't done anything over 4 reps in months. • form got a little shaky toward the end of Squats & Bench but overall it felt good. #ph3#biolayne#programing#periodization#ontothenext
💥BENCH DAYYY. Prepping for the @joinarealgym meet on the 22nd. Big things coming! Working sets today were: 315x3/335x3/345x3/365x2/365x2/385x1/385x1 then hit touch and go close grip speed presses with 225 and roughly 60 in chains (video) for 4x6. WATCH ME💥
SSB Squats 💦 Everybody wants to be the strongest but nobody wants to put in the mental work... The mental work of letting your ego go and following a program that calls for squats at 57.5% of your 1RM and being a trainer while having another trainer yell at you 😢 @larrywheels
My workout today felt like 3% weights at RPE8 LOL. 😂 Mostly kidding but I definitely know my body was surprised to be back in the gym! It was quite the crowded night as you can tell, but got in a good sweat and definitely going to feel it tomorrow 😅 We back, fam! #LiftDifferently @lvdfitness @aydin_tsa @a7intl
So, a little bit about me: 20 years old, Sophomore at Milligan College. Collegiate swimmer, and lover of food- which is important, because during season, I burn between 4,000-6,000 calories a day. CRAZY amounts of food. Right now I'm in an off season, so I'm doing a lot of heavy lifting to try and bulk up between seasons, while at the same time try and maintain some of my cardiorespiratory endurance.
Bench Day 1 this week: Worked to a moderate paused single @ 415, did floor press up to 365 for 3, then did 3 sets of a superset with 106lb KB rows & 115lb OH tricep extensions. Good work done in a little over an hour. 💪🏽 #301Strong#301Barbell#ludusmagnus#chestday
another transformation (fall 2015 ⏩ like two weeks ago) 🤗 Kept my waist about the same, but added some inches to my thighs and around my 🍑. My hair also grew about 10 inches 💁🏻 Some motivation for myself to get back to/ stay at maintenance intake (with minimal cardio and heavy lifting) bc that's what helped me add size & strength AND become more toned 🤗
Here's what you need to know about the laws of lifting * Simplify your training. If your progress has stagnated, you don't need a more complex training plan. You need to get back to the basics. Because they activate more muscle groups and will give you a more effective calorie burn and foundation of strength * Save the isolation exercises for later. Focus most of your training on the six basic movement patterns: hinge, lunge, push, pull, squat and carry... This is how our body is made to move TRAIN MOVEMENTS NOT BODY PARTS * Order your exercises to match neural demand. Do complex and explosive exercises first. Do isolation work and conditioning last. * Use only those training tools that have been around for 30+ years. Stick to proven exercises using barbells and dumbbells, not trendy gadgets. * Be present and focus. Remove distractions and intensely focus on the quality of each rep. Stop mindlessly going through the motions. * Train consistently. Use the training split you're most likely to stick with. For busy people, that often means full-body workouts.
This prep has been an emotional roller coaster ride in a turd shaped car 💩🎢 - Every day is a learning experience and luckily I'm surrounded by people who teach me, want to see me succeed and do not allow me to settle for anything less. This is 205x3 that followed 200x2x3 - the week before I could barely press out 195. Im starting to realize that every day can't be gangster and even though there are bad days you boss up and stop acting like a little bitch. word.
