Scotland’s Strongest Junior competition today, I won the Log with a 145 kg press, and the deadlift with a 345 kg pull. Second place in the sandbags got me the overall win, despite a poor showing in the atlas stone. It was a great competition over at @hostilestrength which I think everyone enjoyed. Onwards and upwards from here
Been a while so let’s do a little progression pic 🤙🏻 first pic taken exactly a year ago when I did my second cut weighed about 206lbs there. Now the second pic is what I look like rn weighing around 230lbs. I had 2 goals I wanted to hit while doing this bulk one was add size to my chest which was severely lacking and the other was to try and keep my waist somewhat small. Training styles were also different, I did a lot more isolation work in the first pic and right now I’m focused on strictly compound movements(powerlifting). Very happy with the result and the way I look right now and just goina continue to get stronger and bigger 🤘🏻 #proplife
Progression in practice... Back when I first started yoga I had the same mentality that many new students do: “props are bad. I should be able to do this without them.” Years later I understand and love my yoga props. I understand that I’m able to get deeper in my practice (both physically and mentally) if I use them when I need them.
A friend recently gave me this foam wedge. I had never used one before, and now I love it! Especially with my tricky right shoulder, the wedge makes Urdhva Dhanurasana accessible even on days that I normally would avoid it. And which is worse: needing a prop to do wheel pose, or skipping an amazing backbend all together?
