Thx @cookiecali for letting me borrow your beautiful @hviiibrandgoods singlet. Thx @monkaycrak for helping me with this meet prep.
Thx @michelled0nut for being my head judge today.
Thx @fitt.katt for recording.
I appreciate y'all so much.
Tbh I just want to get this meet over with already. I'm literally opening with the same numbers (lower for bench) as I did at USPA nationals July and at a 10lb higher bw. So yes I am kind of disappointed in myself. However I am aiming to have better overall meet performance this time around. Last but not least ty ig and frenz for the support. 💕
Adding exercises to my aresenal before the serious programming begins.
Best I ever got in a comp was 227 so it was nice to grind through 230.
Weight jumps we're 175/195/215/230
Did 185 for 5s after that top weight.
I was doing rows and my camera accidentally took this haha wow! (@jospos21 )
DO THIS. HERE’S WHY.
E. Gram, #goldfishfitness athlete and representing the MMM team (Massive Mitzvah Men) demonstrating a textbook safe “full” squat. So what makes for a “safe” squat? Well... (SCROLL)
“Full” squats performed below parallel allow for balanced forces on and around the knee. They are safer and more beneficial for overall performance purposes. The 2 anatomical landmarks we are concerned with when it comes to determining whether or not we are below parallel are A - the apex of the crease in our shorts, and B - the top of the patella. Once A drops below B, several things occur. Providing that our knees are shoved out - our adductor muscles which originate on our medial pelvis and insert all along our medial femur and tibia reach a completely stretched position. This allows them to fully contract as we come up out of the squat, and thus effectively contribute to lifting the weight. Similarly, as we drop below parallel - assuming that our lumbar spine stays in rigid extension by our spinal erectors - our hamstrings develop maximum tensile force. Our hamstrings, which originate at the ischial tuberosity of the pelvis and insert at the tibia and the head of the fibula also reach a fully stretched position allowing them to contribute more to the movement and allow more weight to be lifted. .
As a result of this increase in activation, both the adductors and hamstrings contribute to applying posterior tensile forces on their insertions on the tibia which counteracts the anterior tensile force mentioned earlier exerted by the quads. This balancing of forces naturally eliminates any unwanted shearing or sliding forces on the knee during the movement and therefore stabilizes the knee joint. Furthermore, this totally eliminates any participation by the posterior cruciate ligament or the anterior cruciate ligament to stabilize the knee, and is what makes the full squat safe for the knees.

Deadlift day💀 **Started at 135 and slowly worked my way up to 225 for 2 and 235 for 1🏋🏼♀️ Today’s lift was a huge accomplishment for me, I woke up motivated - put everything behind me and killed my back day.
I used to hit 225 for fun but as of today I hadn’t lifted heavy deads in who knows how long. I can’t wait to get my numbers up✨
Coach asked if I wanted to max out with some others today for some fun I said sure. Then I couldn’t make it but I thought I’ll just do it any way. Coach said “If you want to do it for fun you can. you’re also not conditioned for heavy weight so it won’t go as well as if you were. Good experience though “
Well if you tell me I can’t do something I’ll try my hardest to prove you wrong.
So here I am, no hype, no music, no spot, no caffeine, no sleep, no supporters. Just me and the bar.
First vid 112.5 squat 2.5 pb
Second vid 115 squat lost it forward so had to stop.
Third vid 60kg bench!!!!!! 60 has beat me so many times but not this time!!! 2.5 pb Reckon I had more but spotter was trying to do own workout.
4th vid 140 fail deadlift. That’s my current max. Can’t win em all.
Harlem Shake Harder Than Me. 😏
595lb reverse band box squat
Stolen from @tuscanylt60 - this is me weighing in for powerlifting comps. 😭
Ba ba baby got back. Or atleast I wish I did. Today's workout was fuun! Tough but fun. Such a fine line between pain and pleasure.
What I did today:
➡️ Pull ups
➡️Wide grip lat pulldown first behind your head and then straight after in front
➡️ Rowing with a straight bar palms upwards
➡️Single hand row (cables or t-bar)
➡️Skull crushers with dumbells
➡️Cable bicep curl
➡️ Tricep extension with a plate (from behind your neck)
➡️Bicep curl with a rope
Hoje fui @drfelipedonatto para acertamos os últimos ajustes até domingo, esse último mês foi o mais difícil pq precisava perder 2 kg pelo menos para o campeonato brasileiro de levantamento terra, já que queria competir na categoria 57 kg. Missão dada, missão cumprida...foram 6 meses de acompanhamento finalizando 5kg a menos de gordura(sabe aquele saco de arroz do mercado?!? Então...)aprendi a comer melhor, com melhor qualidade e aprendi a ler rótulo( é as vezes o integral não é integral e o sem açúcar tb não é sem açúcar) depois q vc pega o jeito, vai no automático. Adotei outro estilo de vida...escapando de vez quando( eu sou mulher, né?!? Adoro um doce) mas já sabendo o que fazer depois...no final tudo se resume a disciplina, foco e força de vontade. Depois é só aproveitar os benefícios! só agradecer pelo grande aprendizado mestrão! E vamo com tudo que domingo tem campeonato!!!!#nutricao#nutricaoesportiva#krausebrothers#cktreinamentopersonalizado#powerlifting#powerlifter#deadlift#fitness#liftheavy#hardwork#rawpowerlifting
I am officially 3 lbs heavier from my mini cut in August. And it’s not water. 🤷🏼♀️ I’m hoping it’s all muscle and it all went to the peach. 😜 🍑 #girlybutstrong
Excitement of the day:
8 sets of 3 with 132.5 kg / 292 lbs, followed by 3 sets of 3 with 120 kg / 264 lbs feet up. Shown is the 1st and 8th set of 292, and the 1st set feet up.
Excitement from last night:
Coming 1st on TimePlay in a packed theatre at Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
Banded deds at 130 today. Feeling a little slower than usual but at least my back looks better. Today’s workout:
3x banded squats at 95
3x box jumps
3x banded deadlifts at 130
10 banded KB swings at 44
10 DB rack lunges at 45
10 KB straight leg DL at 80
AMRAP low back extensions
AMRAP sit ups
Fun training today with @brendantakata @coachtaiters @sarvenazhm @purplebarbell @andysiy and #lukas . Woke up feeling very tired and couldn't feel my hands so I couldn't do the pauses but triples were still alright! This is definitely the best ive moved 70kg and the 55 and 57 snatch triples weren't bad either considering I haven't done a normal snatch in 5 weeks! Excited that this cycle is coming to a close.. onward! #dynastystrong#53kg
Respect the Beard. Bulking season has been very, very good to me :) @provinggroundscomps @delta_lima_charlie
#JSAChallenge Day 33/84: Bloody hell. I woke up with PMS pimples. The lid on my water bottle leaked all over inside my gym bag. I couldn’t get my headphones to connect to my phone. My watch screen is probably going out. And my phone battery is draining like crazy for no apparent reason. But, I still got to the gym. This is the last day of my training program before I switch over to my new one I created. I gave today 120%. I upped my KB deadlift by I don’t know how much. The number had worn away on the KB but I’m thinking it was 88lbs (40kg) which means I upped my 12x4 by 18lbs. And it definitely felt like it. I’m wiped. I have nothing left in me to give. But I’m also feeling fucking fantastic.
Treat yo self to a Mass Cast crop top.

These low bar squats are already feeling amazing - Really wish I made this transition sooner!
Decided to work up to a heavy-ish triple on paused squats today after some sets of 10 on bench. Finished up with this top set of 130kgx3. I think this is about a 20kg PB for paused squats!
Some big squat PBs are going to be flying around in early 2018 👊
Some dead lifting going on in Wednesday nights KB class, yes, you read that right! Strength principals can be applied to many movement patterns. Way to be strong everyone, great job!
