Week 13, day 2
This first rep was okay. The rest was a battle between body and brain. Two aborted attempts followed this one. The SI joints feel fine but something else doesn’t, either a disc or piriformis? Not much of an issue while lifting but it made for poor sleep last night and the head games.
Last nights session.... 3x5x265 High Bar Squats, 3x2x235 Bench Press, and tons of lower body volume. I think I have strain in my Rhomboid or Lower Trap.... still getting pain during bar resting on traps during squats, as well as unracking bar on Bench. Pain is annoying, but manageable.... will try to work through/around it and do some soft tissue work. #evofitchi#hybridaf#squat#bench#deadlift
So guys if you haven’t check out the previous 2 videos, then go watch and then give this one a go! Side planks to target your obliques! .
1. Place your elbow directly under your shoulder, and line up your shoulders, hips and ankles before pushing up onto the side of your foot. (Option: Rather than having one foot on top of the other, try a split feet stance)
2. Push your hips high and point opposite shoulder straight up to the ceiling (DO NOT let your chest turn towards the floor)
3. Pull your belly button in towards your spine to engage your abs (See first video)
4. Control your breathing! .
*OPTION* Drop down onto your bottom knee! Keep hips high! .

My first 315lbs bench with the help of Jen Thompson herself!
Okay, not totally. 😂 but #tbt to that time @jenthompson132 made me do heavy holds with 315lbs and then 500+!! I nearly died 😅
I barely lasted half a second with 500lbs in my hands, but my chest actually felt it the next day when I went to bench! God daaaaaaamn.
Thanks again for having us! @jenthompson132 @jenniferthompsonshusband #LeaveYourLegacy
April 1, 2012. The first day I woke up clean and, by the grace of God, I haven't found it necessary to use any mind or mood altering substances since. Powerlifting is more than just a hobby for me. It's how I release the rage that burns in me, it's how I get revenge for all the wasted years and wasted opportunities I squandered away because of my drug use. I have a lot to prove to myself and to the world and through powerlifting I am able to reach some of those goals that I threw away when I dropped out of college and abandoned my football career. From 2006-2012 I made decisions on a daily basis that should have killed me, today I make decisions daily to better myself through strength. I still have work to do. I'm not finished.
THIS IS EVERYDAY SH*T !!!! 😻😻😻😻😻 it’s so fucking beautiful seeing you guys push yourself past your limits daily! Creating beasts all around the world !!! I love you guys 😭😭😭 hashtag #BodyByCookie so that I can see all your workout videos !!! ➖➖➖➖➖➖

Talk about a throwback (swipe right!). A little over 5 years between these pictures and wow, so much has changed.

But hey, I've still got a thing for shades of purple and Barbell Medicine was going strong at this time sooooo...maybe things haven't changed that much after all (besides these grey hairs coming in, lol)
Anybody need a doc who understands training, nutrition, and pushes lifestyle changes as preventative medicine? I know some guys... @austin_barbellmedicine , @drnadolsky , and I are trying to change that!

Etter mye grubling og mye tenking frem og tilbake, så har jeg endelig bestemt meg for å starte en sånn «treningsinsta» eller hva man kaller det. Grunnen til dette er enkelt og greit fordi jeg vil motivere, dele litt av mine erfaringer og tanker rundt dette med både trening, tankesett og kosthold. Har liksom aldri sett på meg selv som «god» nok for dette selvom jeg er utdannet pt og har jo trent en god stund (over 5 år faktisk)hehe. Men hallo, det er jo faktisk ingen «fasit» på hvordan en treningsinstagram skal være heller. Håper hvert fall at jeg kan komme med noe positivt og inspirerende for noen der ute. Peace out✌🏻
Kleiner #throwback zum diesjährigen Sommerulaub in LA mit meiner besseren Hälfte @_jeessi_ 😍
Wir zählen mittlerweile schon wieder die Tage bis wir im Flieger sitzen 😁
Ich komme grad aus dem Gym, heute stand ein saftiges Rückentraining mit @mareikechris auf dem Plan, mal wieder alles gegeben und einen PR im Kreuzheben aufgestellt.. Da geht noch was 😊👌
Ausserdem wollte ich mich noch bei allen bedanken, die mich hier verfolgen, 15.000 Follower sind schon ne Ansage für mich.. Hat mich heute Morgen dann doch ziemlich aus den Latschen gehauen.. 😲
Ich werde mir ein tolles Gewinnspiel überlegen, um euch mal wieder etwas zurückzugeben 👍
Ich hau mich jetzt erst mal auf die Couch und versuche meine Kalorien für heute aufzufüllen, da muss wieder einiges rein 😁
Ich wünsch euch noch einen schönen Abend - Und immer dran denken, das Wochenende ist in greifbarer Nähe! 😊✌
Top 4 reasons why your booty or legs isn't/stopped growing. 1. You're not training them correctly (consistently or allowing them to recover). 2. Your diet sucks. 3. Leg/glutes muscle don't fire (meaning you skipped your warmup) during training.
4. Lengthy cardio, which slashes muscle gains.
1 week post holiday -
And it seems like strength is coming back nicely. First session working up to a 9RPE in the squat and bench.
Squat 155kg x5@9
Bench 110kg x5@9
Things felt slightly heavier than normal but I've built some reasonable volume at the front of the week with lower RPE sets.
Deadlifts tomorrow 💪🏽 for 5s which is a pretty yucky 😷 number!!
