Back on my linear progression and feeling good so I decided to post one😜Started over pretty light with slower progression because I wanted to perfect my form. My back thanks me for doing pulls again! 230x5 #startingstrength#doyourfahves#deadlift
Another month of training compete in my seemingly never-ending 2nd LP. I have far surpassed the progress I made in my original LP (ran under less than optimal circumstances) and met most of my training goals for the year. #onwardandupward
None of these goals would have been met without my coach, @cody_coderedstrength He knows when to push me and does it well enough that I often don't even notice until afterwards. #ISeeWhatYouDidThere Sometimes I notice and hate it though! (I also need it) Thanks for all the help! #iamnotanisland .

Finally joined the 300lbs club tonight! I would never in my life think this could be possible. Major shoutout to @instakilo91 once again for his coaching as well as his motivation. Progression doesn't stop here, we can only get better and better each and every time. #startingstrength#doyourfahves#hipdrahve#barbellmedicine

July and August have been excellent training months as I've steadily progressed through what is hopefully my last trip through a novice LP (again). But as I've started negotiating the transition into advanced novice and beyond, life hit me with some outside stressors and I stopped training the last half of August (consistency when shit gets tough outside the gym is my biggest weakness). ########
But with Powerlifting for Pups coming up, I got back in the saddle in September and hit this long time squat goal during my mock meet yesterday. Unfortunately, all the heavy singles and grinding caused my shoulder and elbow to flare up something fierce and I couldn't put anything heavy up for bench. Will have to determine the best way to circumvent that at the meet (likely by just sucking it up and not chasing any PRs and dosing with NSAIDs). Regardless, very happy with this. Hopefully will got 405 in comp next Saturday. After that, training will shift in focus for the US Strengthlifting Federation's Fall Classic in October!
Thanks to @tonybuccilicious for the spot (and for not touching the bar despite my almost coming to a grinding halt) and to @haleyrdiaz for being my side judge (she was channeling her best @vera_nahce and keeping me honest). #startingstrength#novicelinearprogression#doyourfahves#usaplga#usapl#powerliftingforpups#pridesocks
Sitting in my La Z Boy all day long for nearly two weeks straight now, reminiscing about the days when I could even lift: 545x2 @7 on the last actual squat workout of my life to this point, December 2016, with @a.z.b and @reynoldsstrong. "That's a set of fahve, Wolf!" - Uncle Rippy providing inspirational commentary as usual.
On the bright side, I'm finally making the most of my @netflix and @hbo Now subscriptions.
