I can’t say that I am content with where I am, but that would be a lie.
Fitness and life in general.
It sucks but as long as I keep trying, it will get better.
Be thankful and carry on 🙏
운동도, 몸도, 지금 현재 제가 있는 현실도 만족스럽다고 할 수 없어요.
그 사실이 싫은 만큼, 계속 시도하다보면 나아지겠죠..
감사하면서 계속 꾸준히 나아가야지요🙏
추신. @beefsoup66 엉니 레깅스 고마어요 ♥️ 입고 열심히 운동해야지 😋

today was the first good training day in honestly about two weeks. after friday's training session my coach and i decided i needed to take a diet break. i wasn't hitting any PRs but not just that, i wasn't coming to the gym ready to train. i was tired, sore, and just really fatigued. everything felt slow and heavy. i already can tell a huge improvement in my training (yay carbs !!!) i will probably start my cut again after this training block (so 2-3 more weeks) but till then i'm focused on strength and overall performance. had a bunch of stuff programmed for today's workout, here's just bench and pike push-ups. this was my 4 set on bench and it felt super speedy 😫🙌🏽 for my pike push-ups it was my 3rd set and for the last set i flipped the box to be even higher. my coach said i'll do them against the wall next monday. #iatericecakesduringtraining#glucoseforenergy#imalittlefit#notarchingmyback#justtuckingmylats#pushthroughthebaddays#toexperiencethegreatdays#fitness#weightlifting#olympicweightlifting#olympiclifting
Today's strength training does OHP. Sets at 5. Work up to 95%. Today went exceedingly well despite the fact my trap was killing me. There was an awful lot of pulling this block. the fatigue finally caught up with me. Fortunately as I continued to go through and execute the sets, my back started to loosen up and it didn't hurt quite so bad. I made sure I did rotator cuff exercises prior to execution of today's strength training.
Today's conditioning came from the main site. It was an amrap 20. 15 burpees and 20 Cal row. This was absolutely brutal. I set a goal of trying to get through 7 rounds, and I was able to make it. Surprisingly, I found my sweet spot for the row. The hardest part ended up being the burpees. Especially in the later rounds.
Definitely been spending a lot of time listening to subject matter experts speak on different movements I'm struggling with. The row being an example. I always had an extremely hard time on the rowing machine, but once I learned some of the techniques and got advice from experts, it made it so that while it's still challenging and difficult, it's not killing me like it used to.
There isn't a whole lot out there in the fitness Community brand new or groundbreaking. Every once in a while someone will make an observation that stands out Above the Rest, but for the most part it's all same old same old. This is why we need to learn from each other. In the fitness Community there seems to be an awful lot of cliques forming. there is absolutely no need. Everybody's training the exact same thing, the human body. The human body behaves relatively the same across the species. We all have the ability to learn from each other. Mind you I'm not in the fitness community and have absolutely nothing to prove. Rant over. for the love of God stop telling women they need to stop strength training. They need to just as much as we do. Most of it just stems from the fact we're scared they lift more than we do. Again, rant over.
Ready for the rest day. And it's going to be a long day of work tomorrow. God help me!
🏋️♀️SPLIT JERK TECHNIQUE🏋️♀️
Left: Feet too narrow on the catch. I end up in a long lunge & my feet take longer to hit the ground. Right: Wider in my catch. Feet hit ground sooner so I can lock my arms before I feel the weight again. “If in doubt, widen it out" - It's a stronger catch position than a deep lunge anyway.

💥Chair Dance Your Pain Away!💥
Most of the postural stress is managed by decreasing the stress the spine takes throughout the day. No amount of adjusting or massage will fix your back if you accumulate a lot of poor posture throughout the day.
While not all poor postures are avoidable, you'll really decrease your risk of developing pain from poor posture by adding these movement snacks into your routine.
🔑 Fixed neck rotation using a swivel chair. If the neck is already tight, using this method is great at releasing tension in the lower neck and upper back. To loosen up the lower back, fix the torso in place and rotate just the lower body.
🔑 For flexion/extension, try to segmentally flex and extend to hit each area of the spine. Try to focus a little more on the CT and TL junction.
🔑 For lateral flexion, reach up towards the ceiling and take a deep breath. This will open up the lateral chain and decrease tension in the flank.
🔑 Seated hamstring stretches. Ensure you have an anterior pelvic tilt as you're trying to stretch the hamstrings here.
🔑 Hip Flexor stretch is a key stretch to for anyone sitting. With this hip flexor stretch, I try to reach the leg back as far as comfortably possible while not over extending at the low back.
Perform 15 to 30 seconds of each drill on each side.

Poor Randy just ain't built for volume (or high shelves). I'll force feed him what he needs and he'll become the man we need him to be to achieve the goals we have set for him.
After stepping off the weightlifting platform at @barbells.and.brews i made the decision to start following the programming of @coachmongosmash and @butcherbarbell . Today was my first day following their programming. It was not all sunshine and rainbows. ☀️ 🌈 But I survived to lift another day.
Get comfortable being uncomfortable :
One thing that I’ve enjoyed so much about focusing more and more on CrossFit, has been the learning process that comes along with it. Everyday I learn what I could be doing better and get to be surrounded by people who have more experience and knowledge than me. I’m not in my normal gym element, but that’s okay. Everyday I’m pushing myself to become better with every repetition. :
Still got a lot of improving left to do, but you can bet that I’m not stopping. #s2faction#neversettle#transformation#crossfit#snatch
3 rep PR on cleans after a week off of lifting
125/275 x 3
Body is feeling healthy again and my diet is back on point after I took a week off to travel. Changed my clean technique slightly and I like how it felt tonight. Time to build up again.
No bad days
