First meet day 😅 I went 8/9 with a 342 lb. squat, 243 bench, and 430 deadlift. These numbers were just a little short of what I wanted (thanks back cramps!) but overall I am extremely happy with the progress I’ve made these last couple weeks. My confidence is high and now I’m going to focus on putting some actual meat on my 5’11” frame and work on bumping up a weight class and not being a noodle boi! ———-
Thank you @froyoboi_
for being a great coach/handler and putting up with all my headassery during prep 🙂 and congrats to my iron wife @danielleraaee
for being a 52kg goddess. She has so many medals man we’re running out of space in our house
Came back for safety bar squats and accessories tonight since I didn’t get to them yesterday. Going to the gym straight from work has my legs feeling some type of way but I managed to safety bar squat some things I’ve never squatted before so that’s cool. This is 107kg/235# on my last set of 5x3, RPE 8ish 🤗 never pushed my SSB before now but heyyy it’s fun! @shane_drozdzak
Loving every aspect of your job and doing your absolute best to be THE best at what you do is how all jobs should be. Living the dream! Doing what I love and most importantly spreading my love with others and helping them live healthier and happier lives! 💙 Ready for a new week with new goals and a positive mindset as always 😊
Some light, high bar tempo pause squats after my 3x5@330lbs.
Maxing on high bar beltless next week 🤓
There are many benefits of doing tempo work on squats, but I do them to teach myself to control the weight in an upright position throughout the movement
‼️MAKING PRS DAY IN & DAY OUT‼️
Okay cool, I’m gonna be negative & say I’m not where I want to be at, and my workout did not go as planned. I really wanted 135lb today (yes, I want it & I want it now!!!! *2 year old toddler voice*). However, I have to take the fact that I made 130lbs (& I jerked it too.... somewhat, not posted 🤣). I made 125lb for doubles on Thursday, so I worked myself up to that point (first video). The bar is still crashing down HARD. I’ll still take it because 2 weeks ago I was running away from the bar instead of getting under it. I missed 130lbs on the first try (second video). To be honest, I wasn’t going to try it again. It was getting late, I was hungry, & I was a little upset. I took a 10 minute break & tried it again. I caught it (third video). It’s EXTREMELY ugly, but I caught it. I caught it. To think 3 months ago I couldn’t even clean with 10s on the bar 🤪
PS: since when do I own sneakers?. #ltemployee #endometriosis #weightlifting #weightlifter #powerlifter #powerlifting #positionusa #alpha #sunday #1stphorm #iam1stphorm

Some of my working sets on hammer strength bench , 320 x 8 , 270 x 11 , 270 x 10 going back to more bodybuilding style workouts for next little while ,, been really hard on myself the last few months both physically and mentally,, especially mentally,, been through a lot of shit this year ,, #bench #benchpress #chest #triceps #back #glutes #strengthtraining #powerbuilding #strongman #bodybuilding #bodybuildingmotivation #shredded #ripped #muscle #gainz #goals #determination #motivation #nevergiveup #follow #chestday #lifting #liftheavy #gym #gymmotivation #gymlife #gymrat #flex #pecs #powerlifting
Event 1 from WA’s Strongest Man was 200kg axle squat for reps. I managed 10
Didn’t really know what to expect here. Hit 100% of my prep right until singles and then it was al crap. I guess I’m a special snowflake that cannot take intensity very well 🤕
I’m pretty lucky because I was close to lose my grip on the 275. The 285 moved quite quickly (equal PB) but grip didn’t last. Not sure why it happened, but I’ll make sure it won’t happen next time.
Finished with 737.5kg (2.5kg PB) after the hardest prep I had physically. A part in me thinks why did I worked so hard for extra 2.5kg, but this meet is not the goal, it’s just a milestone. I’ve changed my technique in all of my lifts quite significantly, working with @tombro7 @zero_weakness
and it’s just another step to build longevity in the sport in a safe and efficient execution.
Originally, I didn’t want to cut weight since I’m not aiming for nationals (having a big holiday before) but thanks to @openpowerlifting
I can track my ranking in all time throughout the history of the sport.
Improved my total at the all time in the world from 755th to 432nd.
Improved my total at the all time in Australia from 54th to 29th.
I will crack top 100 world & top 10 Australia , just you wait.

Today, Nov 19th at 1:32am I've crossed of my list my first serious gym goal - to deadlift 90kg - a weight that was double my body weight when I wrote it down at the beginning of the year!
Apparently it's true what they say, you can do anything if you're consistent and work hard... This experience has been such a boost of self motivation and not just for fitness goals, for life in general 💪
Can't wait to set new goals at the beginning of next year.
2019 bring it on I'm ready!

Who loves Fizzies??! 🙋🏻♀️ You know I love them!! They helped me kick my diet Mountain Dew addiction 🙌🏻—and I love our super smart, clean ingredients! The green tea & ginseng gives me level energy, chromium helps support good blood sugar levels, B vitamins=happy, and rhodiola can help with adrenal fatigue.✨ I don’t go a day without them. 🎉 So excited about this new flavor!! It will be available on Monday and it will sell out!! Let me know if you want some! 🤗 And if you haven’t tried Fizz yet and want to, let me know and I’ll send Citrus, Pomegranate or Blackberry. #greentea #chromium #panaxginseng #rhodiola #b6 #b12 #noartificialsweeteners #noartificialcolors #cleanenergy
