Force yourself to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. How do you do that? Keep doing the same thing over and over until it is easy. It's really that simple of a process, however that process can prove to be very difficult.

Back on the grind.
Another block of @hybridperformancemethod
And this block I am fixing problems I had in my mock meet and keeping in mind that 300+ lb bench.
Squat and deadlift will be thought of, but I am so close to that 300 that I can taste it.
And it all starts with this 3x3 at 245 today!
Lets get to work!

Most amount of weight I've handled in a slingshot. Next week @zakwalden
is letting me use his black slinger so hopefully I can knock out 222-230ish 😈 3 and half weeks out from IPF Bench world's now 🌍 #93 #jnr
Cheers @ross_co_watson86 @julienlawes
for the spot
Milestone bench PR today!!!!! I finally, FINALLY hit 135 for one rep—twice!!! (This video was of the second set) Moving up to the big girl plates :) For reference, I weigh about 128lbs and only started training chest and bench pressing about 7 months ago with a 1RM of 85lbs. Super excited about this PR—hoping to be able to push 135 for reps in a few more months.

180kg bench miss. This would have just been a bonus but I wasn’t far away
Stop trying to stay the same or be what you used to be, because it’s comfortable. Be the better version of who you’re becoming. Don’t will the things you are afraid of into existence where they wouldn’t have previously. You making your fears a reality, doesn’t make you right about them. It’s the direction that you’re choosing and you’re waiting for them to happen. #HappyMonday @melrobbinslive
175kg competition bench pb. Pleased with this as I’ve failed it in the last 2 comps. This is the weight I planned to hit
Late night benchies superset with proof I’m actually doing my rehab. Please wake up glutes I know you’re in there 🤞🏼email@example.com
Dumbbell pressing 35kgs.
Form looking on point no half reps promise👍
Still on bodybuilding routine, 1st and 2nd set 6 reps and 3rd set 6 reps, 15 second break 3 further reps, 15 second break again followed by further 2 reps.
Felt good about this, funny when you lift weights off the rack and it feels light, the workout goes well 👍

bit of a cheeky one (in more ways than one 🙊) - I’ve had a bit of a topsy tervy time this weekend and it’s given me a lot to think about re: my training. I went bouldering a couple of times this last week and I really really enjoyed the challenge it presented and it made me miss doing gymnastics. SO I’m thinking of mixing it up a little with my old exercise-routiney-thing and doing a little bit of a less structured, more randomy type thing... if that makes sense? 😬😅 I’m not sure what I’m planning yet but I’m going to have a v productive day today and get lots of uni work and other work done and think about a new training plan - let me know if you have any ideas on how to balance things! 🌈✨
170kg opening bench press at the GPC Scottish Championships
Comeback bench #3
5 x 5 @ 90kg ✅
3 x 1 @ 110kg ✅
Bicep pump ✅
Been super hard to find the motivation for gym lately life can be a real bitch sometimes 🖕🏽Even sat at home after work today and cracked a beer 🍺 trying to find an excuse not to go. Next week I’m gonna start my strength comeback in all 3 lifts. I gotta stop being a pussy and putting it off just cause I’m scared how low my squat and deadlift numbers are gonna be after a few months off 🤦🏻♂️
Been avoiding them like the plague as I’ve had some serious pain in my hip/groin once again, which is also a lack of mobility work/stretching 🤕
I WILL REBUILD 🛠
Bench work -- 260 x 8 PR -- bw 172
285 x 2 PR
315 x 3 PR -
There's a clear vision of where my bench is headed .... All I have to do is stay healthy and I'll achieve it. -
For years I've lifted on blind faith alone....But now I'm starting to enjoy it .. I guess it's true what I've read: passion isn't something you're born with .... Passion is created through developing your ability in a specific skill set.
Do you think I enjoyed playing drums? Not really. But I can feel that beginning to change after being in a band for 2 years ... Imagine the difference 10 years will make. Gotta keep it moving.
No one likes trying something new from their lack of ability (i get it) they give up before they even get started ... -
Skills are developed through repetition....And having blind faith it'll all play out...
16 years ago I started lifting and it's gotten me to this point today. Trust me when I say you can make up ground quick. Don't waste time like I did.
I lifted off instincts since Day 1 and it showed me a lot....but nothing like I've learned in the past 5 years..
Surround yourself with people who gas each other up.
Recognize the best.
Learn from the best.
Anything is achievable.
It comes down to your reality and what you want, what you're after.
Have fun with it and believe in the process... #developyourskillset #inwhateveryoudo #bench #benchpress #weightlifting #powerbuilding #powerlifter #bodybuilding #strongman #crossfit #fitfam #motivation #persistence #heavylifting #HeavyMetal #loud #music #jam #AvengeSevenfold #hailtotheking #SOAD #chopsuey #ACDC #longwaytothetop #howmuchyabench #Slingshot @marksmellybell
Triples to the top at 635x3 @RPE
8.5 for a smooth PR
Hi Bar 495 for 5's
For some reason the bar would just not sit right on my back today and I never felt 100% locked in under the bar. But, I just felt so damned determined to rep 635 today that it was gonna happen no matter what. Either 650 or 660 for a triple next week to finish the block.
Seated Pin Press
Triples to the top again 275x3, tried 300 but made a right mess of the eccentric and never hit the groove. Still a very satisfying training session overall.
425x1 3 sets, 385x8 2 sets (almost- I'll explain) Swipe to see the 1st set of 385 after you read the story lol.
First off, bench felt great today and I'm feeling a lot better about this meet. 2 funny things happened today though. Last set of 425 I guess I pushed too hard and somehow caused both contacts to shift and get lost in my eye. My left one fixed itself but my right was stuck somewhere in my eye. I ended having to run around the gym asking people if they wore contacts so they knew what to look for in my eye. Eventually found someone and fixed it.
The second: I had to find a random person to give me a lift off. He actually gave a great lift off, but on the first set of 385 he reached out to grab the bar on rep 8. I yell don't touch it don't touch it! and he still grabs it to spot me, then I guess reacted to what I said and let's it go. At this point he's moved the bar and I've also let up so i'm not prepared for that and yell "well take it now" lol. All in all, pretty funny situation. It's the 2nd vid.
Last week of training this week for the meet! Feeling great! Decked out in my @a7intl
shirt and wraps which felt great today by the way💪

Immediate thought when I saw this post by @kmart_110kg
One of my @relentlessfitnessmodesto
friends and my coach @jesseburdick
after the SuperTraining seminar today. Sounds like we might be seeing Martin over at CSA for a workout someday.
Then he can make fun of my poverty bench where I train heavy. 😑😫😂

When your bathroom makes you look like you have contoured and highlighted your face even after a day at work then the gym 🌠
