) his riveting childhood story about his father being murdered while trying to save a mother and her child. While growing up as a wild child, James found his stride in sports. As an adult, he would confront his father's murderer in a chilling face to face meeting in prison. James would find Powerlifting in his 30s and has quickly moved up the ranks as one of the World's biggest bench pressers. He now has his sights set on the ever elite 700 lbs club!
285 4x6 after a 265 1x8, either of these rep schemes seemed acceptable after 255 4x8 last squat day, tweaked a couple things in my set up and unrack that have helped tremendously, also took a side view angle of my depth for the pleb who said I quarter squat, this is after all of my sets so even fatigued I'm good!! .
Feet positioning needs some work on the first video, hips are slightly twisted and need to be corrected for stability.
But felt very good about today's squat, followed these with 235 pause squats for 4x5, gotta secure this bag.
Before we question my weight as well the squat bar is 55 pounds thank you very much. 😂

As a personal trainer and powerlifter, Moy already knew much about her craft. Yet she knew if she wanted to get her strength goals and training to the next level, there would have to be some extra guidance and support. We first got to meet her when we were presenting at a course for other personal trainers. She got so much out of just a few days of training that she knew we were the right trainers to get in touch with. Right away we got to work on a specialist program to increase her output.
We designed a program that already took advantage of her strengths and abilities, while helping overcome some shortcomings in her lifts and techniques. Finding alternatives, focusing on what suits her best, and working together, we were able to achieve results she never thought possible. That includes GOLD at the Australian Powerlifting Championships and a slew of new personal bests. Moy also took out Best Female Lifter!
Helping Moy has been incredibly rewarding. Her dedication to what she loves has shined through with some beautiful results, and we cannot wait to get her even stronger!

Interview with low key ninja @5.97__
1. What made you sign up or what were the deciding factors/qualities that made you join?
I wanted to improve my technique for my 3 lifts and also get stronger. I personally felt that maha would be able to help me achieve my goals.
2. How has your coach helped you develop thus far in both your lifting and your character?
It’s hard to find someone as patient as maha especially when im a stubborn person and will hardly listen to people once i think i’m right. His training not only helped me improve on my lifts but also taught me how to be patient in everything i do, be it lifting or in life. Rushing things would only lead to a higher percentage for failure.
3. How has your journey been like? Any personal changes you have felt/experienced?
Throughout my time with maha, i felt that i have a better technique and increased in strength. My ability to cope with heavy weights had also improved tremendously. I used to be afraid of anything above 80% of my 1rm but not anymore now. All thanks to maha!

took a 2week “planned” Deload and came back with a 2 rep 15lb pr!
So proud of her for sticking with her program!!!
Not at my strongest by any means. 130kg 2x3, how about those calves though?
Weighing in at about 187 in the mornings(: 200 on the way #bigboyszn
This was either the best or worst idea of all time...jury is still out.
100kg x 100reps 8min37sec.
The real question is whether or not I can walk tomorrow! 🤣
315x5 paused spoto (paused pr in general) top set. 2nd gym session today feeling gooood. @tomdkim98 @jaaydub7
Been a while since I posted, I promise I haven't been laying down being lazy😂 first video is my eighth set of 5 with 275 after something like 10 weeks not being able to because a small tear in my pec insert and a couple other main compounds throught the week.
🔥Advanced Hamstring Training 🔥
Nordic curls are one of the best ways to strengthen the hamstrings during knee flexion. A 2015 study found that introducing nordic curls into soccer athletes programming reduced the risk of hamstring injury. In fact, this exercise is one of the most researched within the strength and conditioning field and the results speak for themselves. The great thing about this exercise is that it inherently focuses on the eccentric loading of the hamstrings, which means greater time under tension. Combining nordic curls and hip extension movements for hamstrings (any deadlift variation or hinge pattern) will ensure that you're not leaving any stone unturned.
Keys to this exercise:
- abs engaged
- tuck hips under torso
- stay within an active range
In this video I am doing a band assisted version in order to make them slightly easier than doing them with my own bodyweight (trust me these are tough).
New PR with 195# ! Always celebrate the lil victories because life s too short. Happy dance over here! #24hourfitness #fitover40
Last set from today.
Been MIA because I was abroad for a month and didn’t really workout for about 5-6 weeks total. First time lifting around 200 in 3 months (mid August). Strength and endurance finally feels 💯 back to normal. Squats felt easy today. Motivation and discipline with my diets still not there yet..but I’m optimistic about cutting for my basic New Years resolution. 🤗 #crunchfountainvalley #crunchfitness
By using our specially designed excel template, Coach Jacob can track important data points to help organize and optimize your training. Our excel tracks crucial numbers such as relative intensity by lift, a weighted weekly average relative intensity by lift, the number of each lift performed, and total tonnage per session and week. For each athlete we have a rotating calendar to keep track of meet dates and map out mesocycles, microcycles, and frequency to plan optimally for game day months in advance. Each month you will receive a PDF file with your whole block presented in an easy to read manner. Our man behind the scenes, Evan @ensgoal
, is not only one of our athletes but is also the designer of our excel template. Evan has combined his two passions of Product Design and Powerlifting to create an excel template that is optimized for Jacob’s workflow. Additionally the excel outputs easy to read and use programs for our Limitless Athletes. But for us at Limitless Coaching, the work doesn’t stop after the program is completed as we continue to research more useful features that will help us to create the best experience for you as a client.
