Congratulations, Mary and Joseph, on your immaculate conception!
Just over here trying to find my motivation again 😋😂 Second session of the week done and just training what I want when I want. Few weeks of doing what I like before getting back to business 🏋🏻‍♂️👋 . #irishfitfam #fitfam #girlswholift #pt #powerlifting #girlswithmuscle #diet #lift #shelifts #strong #fitness #fit #gym #happy #training #foodie #weightlifting #workout #girlswhopowerlift #gains #potd #yolo #selfie #muscle #rawpowerlifting #drugfree #aipo #powerlifter #iifym #gwpldoboth

#TRANSFORMATIONTUESDAY BEAST AND BEAUTY I am a women and I determine, dictate and decide the kind of women I want to be. I AM A STRONG WOMEN and no matter what I’m gonna get stronger 💪🏼❤️🚨 #gwpldoboth #peachgang 🍑member #girlswhopowerlift @girlswhopowerlift #STRONGbody #smallbutmight
COMP SUMMARY . So on Saturday I competed at the A/BPU Northern Qualifers at The Strength Therapy/SILA in Manchester. Best lifts: Squat 87.5kg (2.5kg pb) Bench 47.5kg (equal pb) Deadlift 120kg (equal full power comp pb) Total 255kg (5kg pb) At the start of the week I weighed a hefty 69.1kg so I reduced my carb intake and tried to do a bit more walking. Friday evening I weighed in at 67.7kg, just 200g over my usual weight class. I hadn’t eaten since 12pm so decided not to try and run it off and instead went home to scoff a fuckton of carbonara. Saturday morning I felt good, got me a delicious vanilla latte from @timhortons and powerwalked it to the venue. I had tabled here many times but never competed before and was worried about the warm up space as the gym isn’t the biggest. But everything felt fine and we were able to get everyone worked in. I think. Despite being put in the 75kg category I still scraped the qualifying total needed for Euros, and overall it was a jolly good day. It was an honour to share the platform with so many strong girls, and am extremely proud of @amandakins2 for snatching Best Lifter! Sunday it was back to regular duties on the table and again it was an awesome day with some magnificent displays of power. I’m very fortunate for the opportunity to work and lift alongside some truly remarkable people. I want to thank the brilliant @wookielifting for the expert bench hand jobs and being the most bestest and patient coach even when we barter about openers. Also huge thanks to @danthegrappler for being a superb bringer of things and calmer downer when I missed attempts. I would not have made it through the day without you ❤️ Massive thanks to @emmaylitalojames , Kalle, @jesspallot , @gemgems_92 , @danwhit_pl , @dommielouise , @quad_damit_neha , Tony, for making sure everything ran as smooth as silk. And finally to @captain_scarlift , @ploeynase , @aw.performance.coaching , @mikejoneswigan , @cindatraining , @faynorthcott , @tommartinpl , @13vivlet , @ladykyle , @sain1992 , @lizzytez , @lrboxerfan8 , @bobfielding , @ross_the_powerlifter , @jaseholmes , @will_newton_will.b.fit , @321strengthsystems , and many I’ve probably missed for bringing everything they had
COMP DEADS . By this time I was v tired . 120kg ⚪️⚪️⚪️ equal full power comp pb 125kg 🔴🔴🔴 125kg 🔴🔴🔴 . Not sure why 120kg felt so heavy as warm up felt nice again. Wanted to match my deadlift only best from the Andy Bolton Deadlift Challenge in October but it only went up due to a naughty little counterbalancing . . . #deadlift #singletsaturday #coachrimansaysso #teamwookie #beltflick #gwpl #gwpldoboth #9for9 #platformready #rawpowerlifting #sbd #powerdyke #britishpowerliftingunion #gingerlifts #powerlifting #abpu #powerchins #girlswhopowerlift #powerbelly #girlswithtattoos #openpowerlifting
COMP BENCH . Warm ups felt lovely so upped my opener from 42.5kg . 45kg ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 47.5kg ⚪️🔴🔴 47.5kg ⚪️⚪️⚪️ equal pb Quite happy with how the second 47.5kg moved since I flopped at Worlds in August and the same weight at Brits back in May moved like a sloth through cold porridge . . . #bench #singletsaturday #coachrimansaysso #teamwookie #beltflick #gwpl #gwpldoboth #9for9 #platformready #rawpowerlifting #sbd #powerdyke #britishpowerliftingunion #gingerlifts #powerlifting #abpu #powerchins #girlswhopowerlift #powerbelly #girlswithtattoos #openpowerlifting
COMP SQUATS . As I lay in bed with a tweaked back I suppose it’s time to show how I did on Saturday . 80kg ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 87.5kg 🔴🔴🔴 87.5kg ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 2.5kg pb First time using my new singlet and squat shoes in comp and in hindsight I probably should have done at least one training session in them. I wasn’t prepared for how high the legs rode up and I completely misjudged depth on the second attempt . . . #squat #singletsaturday #coachrimansaysso #teamwookie #beltflick #gwpl #gwpldoboth #9for9 #platformready #rawpowerlifting #sbd #powerdyke #britishpowerliftingunion #gingerlifts #powerlifting #abpu #powerchins #girlswhopowerlift #powerbelly #girlswithtattoos #openpowerlifting
I wasn’t always the most confident, in fact I was the opposite, it wasn’t until I really got into powerlifting 2 years ago, that I discovered this hidden beast in myself that I’m glad I let out to play. 💪🏽 In the fitness community I always want my lady friends to be empowered and to love themselves and to take no shit from a man. You wanna be a strong, badass woman who powerlifts, fucking do it! Then throw on them heels and slay girl!! Strong is fucking sexy. 💪🏽 #FlexFriday #GwplDoBoth #GWPL #LadyPittfiend #PittPowerlifting #StrongIsSexy #BeautyAndBeast #LoveYourself #IronTherapy #girlsWhoPowerlift #empoweringwomen #squat #bench #deadlift Thanks @thetinylifter_ for empowering strong women!! 🖤
Maybe she’s born with it...? Maybe it’s humid south Texas summer weather. Missing home a lil bit. #sweatorhighlight #youdecide #texas4ever (except in the summer....) #girlswhopowerlift #gwpldoboth

Happy #HumpDay
After a mildly inconvenient start to the day (overslept then bus wanker drama) I had a long overdue catch up with @ketogent and finished up with a good bonch and pull sesh . . . #bench #deadlift #coachrimansaysso #teamwookie #beltflick #grafthausgym #gwpldoboth #platformready #rawpowerlifting #sbd #powerdyke #britishpowerliftingunion #gingerlifts #powerlifting #abpu #powerchins #girlswhopowerlift #grafthaus #powerbelly #girlswithtattoos #openpowerlifting
Finally trusting my body and mind enough to squat 100 without a spotter (and in a gym I don't like squatting in haha)😍😍😍 Some sweet 80s after🙏 #happyhannah #squats #100kilos #comeback #herniateddisc #rehab #gettingstrong #grateful #trusttheprocess #workout #gym #girlswholift #healthylifestyle #gwpldoboth #littlesuccesses #legday 🍑 #powerlifting #fitgirl #fitfam #training #keepgoing #onestepcloser #cleverfit
“You look great! What did you change?!”... something I’ve heard all month from people who haven’t seen me in some time. Well, it’s not rocket science. I stopped eating to gain weight and started eating to lose weight. Aka eating a LOT less. ☠️ Did I look fine before to them? Probably not. But lucky for me, the important ones love both and I have goals that are more important 💪🏻 #gainingweightiscool #losingweightiscool #beingyouiscooler #transformationtuesday
If you don't post your meet vids to the gram did you even compete?? 🤔😜 here's my best lifts from Saturday with a bonus fail of my third attempt deadlift of 286 which would have given me an elite total for the 52kg class. Next time I'll have it. Best lifts were 215 squat (played it super safe) 121.3lb bench and 270 deadlift. I've added a touch over 30 lbs to my total so i'm pretty happy with that even if these weren't all-time PRs. Thanks to @bwscott89 for the killa meet prep and the rest of the @nbs_fitness fam for being awesome and bringing lots of hype to this meet. . . . #xxfitness #gwpl #girlswhopowerlift #gwpldoboth #legday #squat #squatbenchdeadlift #squats #girlpower #peachgang #strongnotskinny #noskinnychampions #girlswholift #girlsthatlift #powerlifting #powerlift #gwpldoboth #motivationmonday #rpspowerlifting #52kg #deadlift #deadlifts #deathlifts #fitfam

Jeg har i lang tid ikke syntes det var noget ved at tage selfies, fordi jeg ikke syntes at mit tøj sad så pænt på mig længere, og jeg syntes at jeg var blevet lidt for tyk i ansigtet. Nu er det begyndt at blive lidt sjovere igen 😄 Stik modsat af hvad der normalt sker, når folk begynder at træne, tog jeg alt for meget på, fordi min appetit voksede og jeg ikke lige formåede at holde lidt igen. Og når man så oven i købet konkurrerer i en sport, hvor det at være tung heldigvis ikke anses for at være negativt, så er det nemt at tage 10+ kg på. Jeg elsker tøj og at være pænt klædt på, så det er rart at vende tilbage til den gamle form igen 😄 #styrkeløfter #vægttab #fremgang #dressedup #gwpldoboth #girlygirl
All pics taken on the same day, lifting 150kg and at a boxing night. Women who lift can do both! I've said it before and I'll say it again for those that might still be under some illusion that picking up something more than 4kg is instantly gonna turn them into Eddie Hall (beard included) Lifting Heavy WON'T turn you into a man!! BUT it is the BEST tool to build a lean, toned physique. You want to say goodbye to bingo wings? Lift! You want a nice "jlo" booty? Squat heavy, lunge with weight. Want a strong toned core? Deadlift! It takes years and thousands of hours and very specific nutrition and often various supplements to look like the incredible ladies that people say are "manly" it won't happen just from weight training 3 times a week. BUT you can increase your metabolism, improve your long term health and fitness, sculpt your body and feel incredible! And if you're local to @opiumgymltd come see us and well help you get started! #strongwoman #strongissexy #gwpldoboth #strongwomendoboth #notjustgymgear #womenwholift #womenwholiftheavy #womenwithmuscle #liftingwontmakeyoumanly #booty #squatbooty #weights #weighttraining #weightsalltheway #weightsnotcardio #strengthtraining #strongmom #strengthissexy #fitmom #fitchick #fitness #findyourstrong

Had a change of scenery for yesterday’s training session. Then today was spent mooching around Manchester, eating all the carbs for a big squatto tomorrow with the @britishpowerlifting gang . . . #squat #fatfriday #coachrimansaysso #teamwookie #beltflick #gwpl #gwpldoboth #platformready #rawpowerlifting #sbd #powerdyke #britishpowerliftingunion #gingerlifts #powerlifting #abpu #powerchins #girlswhopowerlift #powerbelly #girlswithtattoos #openpowerlifting
Recently checked out @fusion3uk to find somewhere to olylift near my work. Worked up to a back squat of 115kg. Which at the time felt like it moved like a snail 🐌 clearly this video proves otherwise! I'm pretty happy with that after not being able to train anything but zombie squats for 6 weeks due to a wrist fracture. It's good to be back! #squat #girlswhopowerlift #comebackkid #legs #injured #injuriessuck #quads #quadsquad #tbt #gwpldoboth #girlswhosquat #powerlifter #powerlifting #olylifting #olympiclifting #train #lift #motivation #britishpowerlifting #girlswholift #diet #dowhatyoulove #dontgiveup #strength #strong #lifeandweightlifting
The lines are fading and all that remains from my show day physiques are the horrendous tan. 🍊The left is peak week number 2 physique where I brought my best to the stage but obviously can’t stick around. On the right I’m still shreddy... but I got a lot of growing to do. . And Now. The hard part. #offseasonstartsnow #butnotlikelastoffseason 😩#throwbackthursday #postshowfeels
#Flashback to a year ago when I was finally able to pull 325... fluffy and skrongggg but the booty doesn’t put itself on 💪🏻 #thatwasthirtypoundsago #fluffgamestrong #flexfriday #flashbackfriday

First show 2015 to my second show 2018. 3 years of mini bulks, diets, and one biiiiiiig bulk happened between these two photos just to get me some baby gains and changes. SHIT TAKES WORK AND TIME PEOPLE. #notdoneyet #transformationtuesday #slowassnattygains #worththewait
Managed to get my knee sleeves on tonight and these felt okay and then I watched them back and they are rapid compared to last week! 95kg 3x3. Gym was absolutely rammed tonight! Also worked up to a 105kg paused triple however someone decided to use the calf raise machine which meant I couldn't use it as a tripod 😂 Squats are back!

Absolutely love this jumper that I got to keep from modelling at the M&S Christmas Conference last month! Boots and jumper are both M&S! I polled this jumper on my story this week and it got 63 votes as "Yes yellow for the win!"

🌟135lbs x 2 for a new PR 🌟 Some people have asked me what I listen to while I lift and lately I’ve found that gettin in my feelings with some o’ dat emotional R&B helps me focus my mind. Of course I do have some hype up songs, but legit I was listening to “Fire & Desire” by @champagnepapi right before this 😂😅 #nowyouknow #funfacts #powerlifting
Yes I deadlift over 325lb, squat over 240lb and bench over 145lb. Yes I have callouses and yes I train with long nails. Yes I’m sweaty and covered in chalk for half the day and yes I can put on a dress for a night out. I feel feminine, badass, strong and empowered in and out of the gym and a big part of feeling that happiness came from lifting heavyass weights. So ladies, don’t be afraid of the barbell, don’t be afraid to be the only woman in the free weights area. Don’t be afraid of sacrifice and hard work because with that comes a strength and confidence I personally never knew could be achieved. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and never ever apologize for being your true self. 💪 #motivation #strong #makeyourmark #empoweredwomen #strongwomen #gwpldoboth #girlswhopowerlift #strongissexy #strongisbeautiful #girlswithmuscle #liftheavy #smallbutmighty #bemorenotless #realtalk #powerliftingsavedmylife #strongereveryday #mentalstrengthtoo
These glasses have a secret... 👀 ________ While I’m not in the gym, I’m a writer that works in tech. Over the past 4 months, I’ve been quietly writing for @focalsbynorth (formerly Thalmic Labs) - and we just opened preorders for your smartest pair of glasses! 👓 ________ This was a really proud moment for me, my North friends, and #kwawesome ! Who knew tech could look so stylin’ ✨

Get you a girl that can do both 😂💪🏼💁🏻‍♀️🏋🏻‍♀️
After an intense experience with finals, I come to my apartment to a package from @christopherhayes22 who sent me these. For anyone who actually knows me know that they are my favorite rap artists of all time. His simple gesture makes the last week and a half worth the long nights, shitty workouts, and zero eating worth it. 😊😎 I also decided to take a picture of me before school this morning because I don’t usually post anything other than me being sweaty and looking like a mess at the gym. I typically look put together every day for work or school since that’s kind of implied when you wear business casual errday (even though I’m flailing on the inside). Good talk 🦊 I don’t really know how to end these things still.. #wutang #gwpldoboth
