Just trying to get on @seandanner
selfie level while I take a break from studying for my first biochem exam of the semester. 🙏🙏🙏 BW: ~123 (16+ pounds lost)
Hi yes. I tried bench first out of my big three today. It. Really. Sucked. I could only move my warm up 🙃 very unstable still. But probably due to still being in recovery and well.. malnourished. From state record holder to arm flab here. BUT THATS OKAY. Give me till December 1st when I step back on the platform. I’ll put up some good numbers that will probably still disappoint me anyways cause they always do 🙃🤷🏻♀️💀
Felt good to be back in some gear 😊
The work on the SSB continues and things are definitely moving in the right direction, shown is my final set of 600x2 which moved really smooth and clean, I'm starting to taste that 700...thanks @jettski13
for the spot and sorry everyone for the shitty camera angle...
350x9 after 4x8 with the same weight highbar squats. +75lbs from the beginning of this block. Tossed a belt on, since it’s the third training day in a row, two days after some serious deadlift volume. Absolutely loving the @ironrebel
performance sleeves, and can’t wait for our @elitefts
ss yoke bar to come in to start up the next training block. High bar still sucks, but I’m getting better, and that’s all that matters. I will never stop. @joaquinalvarezjr
on the loving spot
176x3x7 at RPE 7-7.5
Bench felt great today! Just lil positioning misgrooves bc i was overly excited lol. TUE WAS APPROVED TODAY!!! 5.5 WEEKS OUT😍👊🏻
It wouldn’t be peaking for comp if my upper body weren’t falling apart 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃 I got to lift at bae’s work though so that was cool ☺️ getting some work done on my shoulders/biceps tomorrow so hopefully that helps! 🤞🏻🤞🏻 @shane_drozdzak
One of my oldest best friends, the original homie, @kunalpres
has officially put a track out. Everywhere. If you like the genre, do me a favor and go get it on one of these platforms and give it a try.
If you're into it, give my man a follow and wait because he's just getting started.
This guy has come a long way since playing Diablo back in Mosbey's Landing in northern Virginia, and he's nothing but passionate about what he does. Let me know what you think of it.
And share this around. Infect your friends.
👨🏻🔬 Work= Force X Distance
🤓 Isometric contractions therefore don’t result in any work, but they do work!
🏋🏽♂️ The isometric phase is trainable just like the concentric, eccentric, and amortization phases are. .
💪🏽 Training the Isometric phase can have specific effects (among others) on:
1️⃣ Motor Unit Recruitment
Number of muscle fibers that fire
2️⃣ Rate Coding
Rate at which muscle fibers fire to increase muscle tension
⭐️ Bonus: Isometrics provide a great opportunity to coach position, tension, weight distribution, etc. Spending more time with a given position or movement allows for more neuromuscular feedback.
Bench 🌈 I am really enjoying training at the moment 👍🏼

I had about 6 people ask me how I got sick and if I caused it, looking for an easy way to lose weight 😹 yeah okay. I know there is controversy over this. But my body definitely went into survival mode and ate more muscle than fat. I can’t blame my body, it makes sense. If your body decides to burn an extra 7,000 calories a day out of no where, it’s going to do what it needs to do. BUT. I’m not all withered away. It’s just time to regrow. This time, it’ll be better. Some people will look at this photo and think I look great, which thank you, but it’s not me. I don’t think I’m meant to be small.
