170 lb push press pr! Finally a win for me. I really needed it after failing the deadlift and bench press. Followed it up with strict overhead press (5x3), pause face pulls w/ resistance band (3x12), and for biceps we did the 100 rep challenge w/ fat grips (as few sets as possible to hit 100 reps with just the Barbell which weighs 45 lbs). The pump is crazy and don't cheat because you are only cheating yourself! --- Shoutout to @kendricklamar for providing some great songs to get hyped to. The music you listen to is important in the gym. If you have that badass song that gets you hyped and makes you perform better, then listen to THAT music. If that music happens to be rock or pop or hell even country, it doesn't matter! If it gets you hyped, it's worth throwing into your playlist. I have my main playlists open to all on Spotify if any of you are curious 👉🏻West Coast Classics + [TRAIN] by erok1999. Give them a follow f you like them. Hope that helps💪🏻

March 2016 - April 2017
When I first started lifting, a 45 lb. plate was almost impossible for me to pick up and put on a machine. I remember wanting to push 45's on the leg press, but not being able to lift them high enough to load it, so if my boyfriend wasn't around I would just use 25's 😭
I used to always feel so weak. I felt like if I needed to, I wouldn't be able to ever defend myself.
Weight training empowered me like nothing else ever did. It gave me confidence, and took that weak feeling away from me.
It didn't happen over night, and it only happened because I made it my lifestyle. I have given it my all, even on the days I feel I have nothing to give.
This isn't a hobby. This isn't something I'm doing until I get to a certain point, and then I'll chill. This is my life.
And that is the reason I am where I am today. Because if you do it for all the wrong reasons, it gets old after a while.
Do it for you. Do it to feel strong. Do it to slowly erase every time you have ever felt powerless.
