305lbs feeling light and FAST 🏋
First attempt will be slightly less than this at my powerlifting meet, and will hit a meet PR on my third attempt 😈 DM for coaching inquiries 🌞 #binch#speed#stronk#powerliftingmeetprep
NEW BELT WHO DIs?! Reverse order again. I look bloated af today. 🤷♀️ Tried weighted push-ups with 25lbs and only got 15 but I had done weighted dips (3 sets of 10 with 10lbs) and bench so was tired. And forgot 3 sets of wide grip pull ups.
🌞skwatz were 165x5, 175x5, 165x5 all paused. Working on knees but they are looking so much better. Hopefully paused are good enough. I could've gone heavier buuuut wanna have room to grow .
🌞bench was 110x5, 115x5,120x4 paused. Again hopefully pauses were long enough. Missed the 5th rep of 120 bec butt came off the bench. Did another set of 115x5 tng after .
New post ➡️ IPF World Classic Championships Results: Men's 66kg.
With 15 weightclasses lifting at the World's over the space of a week, it was difficult to keep up with all the news. So now we're working our way back through all the results, starting with the men's 66kg.
Reigning champion Sergey Gladkikh (RUS) won the title again this year, beating Sawyer Yandell's (USA) squat world record of 249kg from the Junior 66's a few days prior - hitting 250kg. He also extended his total world record from 670kg to 680kg.
Taking home the silver medal was Stephen Cascioli (CAN). After missing his opening squat for depth and having to adjust the game plan from there, he didn't get the opportunity to have a crack at the squat world record. Stephen went on to not have his best day at the office (by his standards) totalling 642.5kg.
In third place was Alexander Kolbin (RUS). The second Russian lifter in the top three, Sergey is a seasoned equipped 59kg equipped competitor. With weight gain on his side, Alexander is making inroads for the 66kg class and is a lifter to lookout for in the future.

This is by far the hardest working set I've ever taken in my year of powerlifting 4x4 @180kg literally felt like throwing up after every set. This was done in sleeves which is a huge PR gonna switch over to wraps from next week on in the lead up to the comp and hopefully see a huge carryover big things to come
That's my best friend ladies and gentlemen 😩👏🏼❤️ The girl who, despite being thousands of miles away, still made my junior year tolerable. I am so glad to have her in my life and I have no idea what I would do without her. She is there for me through all of my life struggles and I could never thank her enough. She is like the sister I never had, and her family is like my second family. I am so excited to see what our lives bring, and I can't wait for her to be my maid of honor at my someday wedding. I love her so much. ❤️ #bestfriend#loveyoutopieces#binch
NEW BENCH PRESS 1RM 🎉 🎉 💪 💪
5KG Increase over my old PB.
The focus these last 3 months was progressive overload (increasing volume/weight over time) and hardly ever working to complete failure. Also some tweaks here and there to my technique to ensure a safe lift and as much stability as possible.
Pretty proud of this new found strength!
Unfortunately Instagram won't play the video. :(
315lbs 4 sets of paused singles RPE 8.5
300lbs for 4x3 in the slingshot 💪
Less than 2 weeks out from my powerlifting meet and bench is feeling STRONK 💪💪 finished off with 225lbs 5x10 bent rows and some biceps 😈 should probably start the whole deload thing next week so wanting to get some heavy weight in now for those confidence gains #binch#skwot#didlift#stronk
Really good session with @blgstrength today. I was feeling really pumped after watching @theipf worlds this week.
Squats with 160 for some very easy 5s. Flats feel very good, I'm chuffed with how these were moving.
I followed this with 117.5kg bench for 5x5, which also moved very well.
Careless Whisper on for George Michael, who'd be 54 today 😎
Great session today with my boy @aliwoodwardstrength
High bar squats today as working sets to give my shoulders a break. Shown is 175kg/385lbs for a set of 7 feeling decent but again showing bar tilt and stuff - pretty annoying. Prior to this was 165kg/363lbs 1x8 and 155kg/341lbs 1x9.
Bench followed at 105kg/231lbs 5x3, which is a PR 😊
Moved my grip in today too to stop excessive elbow flare - felt solid.
As the 8 week mark until my next competition comes around, I like to reflect on who I am lifting for, other than myself.
The support and love I get from my team, clients and members at @silvermerefit is incredible.
I love my little tribe, and appreciate it more than anything.
120KG (3X2) So it's official. I am no longer competing in the U63kg class. Being 5ft 7' and trying to diet back down to 63kilo is possible but isn't worth it. I value my life, my training, my total, and my mental health. In the past year I've doubled my squat from 60kg to 120kg, I may be the weakest U72 lifter at nationals this year but I'm okay with that. I'm 24 and the aim for me is to be in this sport for long time. So here's to growing my glutes the size of the world and getting as strong as possible 💜 I'm super lucky to have two best coaches anyone could ask for @arthurlynch @dannylennon_sigmanutrition and with @citygymlk what could go wrong 🤣💚 #powerlifting#irishpf#calories#irishfitfam#strong#girlswhopowerlift#intutitiveeating#sigmanutrition#virus#ukfitfam#binch#MacNutritionUni#skwat#didlift#citygymlk
