So here's my opening deadlift at my first meet yesterday, an easy 100kg which is a world qualifier in my weight class apparently. Unfortunately my nerves got the best of me and I red lighted the next two attempts. That's a whole lot of people staring at you when you're in tiny spanky pants. I'm honoured to have lifted with 7 other strong ladies, one of which was only 7 years old! Can't wait to get back to the gym and keep building! Thanks @renfrewstrength for the fantastic meet and @lionshark1 for the coaching. Thanks to @girlswhopowerlift for giving me the confidence to rock #singletsaturday .
Was suppose to retest my maxes but everything felt off today. Ended up just testing my openers. 🔹Squat 225lbs opener
🔹Bench 95lbs opener (video failed @115lbs) 🔹Deadlift 265 opener
Have a little under two weeks to get my issshhhh together😐🏋🏼♀️
#RandomBoujeeThings I used to weigh myself every day because I felt it was necessary to adjust my macros properly. With daily weight fluctuation I did not want to rely on a single day. But I started getting drawn into the number on the scale and fixating on it to where it was becoming a really negative thing. So I cut that shit out and now weigh myself 1 day a week so I can still adjust my macros #reversedieting#ftw luckily my body responds well to gradually increasing carbs and fat and always seems to get leaner as I do this.. I just want to eat all the food and make all the gains 😍😋 currently 153-154 #progress#bestself
4 hours and one gold medal later, first powerlifting meet is in the books. HUGE thank you to my number one coach, best friend and boyfriend. Through all the blood, sweat, and many many tears you never once let me forget how much potential I have. Thank you for pushing me as any coach but also being there for me when I needed it. Couldn't have done this without you 💕
No matter what we do, we were training partners first ☝🏼 Thanks @amyamox for taking this creeper shot hehe. 🙈 For my RPE sets, I like to gauge the RPE based off 1. how it felt, then 2. off how the video looked, and lastly 3. some feedback from training pals who know me as a lifter. 👌🏼 @lvdjosh and I were rewatching my squat 12 times to decide an RPE yesterday 😂 #liftdifferently#twins @lvdfitness
Kastar tillbaka till november 2013 och min första tävling i styrkelyft: 87.5kg på stången. Sen november 2016, med 130kg på stången. (Fick inte med mig lyftet, men det struntar vi i nu 🙄✌) Nyttigt ibland att titta bakåt, och med tanke på att min höft strulade under en längre period mellan dessa filmer ska det bli himla kul att se vad för vikt som ligger på stången 2019 🙈😊♀ #powerlifting#girlswhopowerlift#styrkelyft#bambimark
When you say you're gonna pull 255 for 3 but @jennyallen817 and @brandon_allen88 has you going up to 8. 💪🏼😎 Finished up with filthy deadlifts with the vert pull going slowwwww on the negatives. Jenny and Brandon are one of the most down to earth people ever!! Make sure you visit them at his powerlifting seminar in Bakersfield this Saturday at the @naspowergym ! #deadlifts
Huge shout out to our GA strongwoman and a powerlifter @charity_witt doing #yoke sprints at 380!

So like... As much as I don't want to compare myself to anyone on this journey... How else do you judge progress/relative strength/whether you're wasting your time? I started lifting just about 6 weeks ago. I feel like my lifts are nothing when looking at all the bad ass competitive powerlifters I follow. But the reality is that most women will never even get under a barbell to find out how strong they really are. My mom was like, "YOU'RE BASICALLY WONDER WOMAN" and I was like, "No, I am not." But if this is what I'm starting with? I can probably get there. 💪 🏋 🐮 #girlswholift#girlswholiftheavy#startingstrength#girlswhopowerlift
