Forgot to post this earlier
Pin presses felt super mediocre. Slept in a weird position so my collarbone area felt weird and couldn't get everything really tight.
285lbs/129.3kg x1 top single @8.5. went low but didn't want to push things too much bc of how weird everything felt
245lbs/111.2kg x3 first backoff, ezpz
Thanks @fonfonfit for the spot!! @barbellsandcats
Eeeek I am so happy!! Worked up to my top set of 140 lbs today at RPE 8 and 135 (first two reps) moved way easier than last week. So exciting to see small improvements despite the nonstop stress I have had all week between exams and furbaby problems. Just trusting the process and focusing on quality over quantity 😬💪
Kinda sorta hit a mini #PR of 115 lbs. Slowy getting close to squatting my body weight! 🤗 didn't quite hit depth which sucks. Oh well.. 🤷🏻♀️ #myfitnessjourney
3)115 lbs x2 vid cut off (PR)🎉
Not the greatest box squats or video quality but eh 🤷♀️
Did 5 paused reps on the small box at 95,100,105,110,125,135 and then moved up for sets of 5 on the medium box at 135,160,185, and 205 then 3@225 and 1@225. I was supposed to do 2x3 @225 but got out of line and that's why I only hit 1 that set...... thanks @northofvag.hh for always giving me the advice confidence to attempt it again and hit all 3, I couldn't let myself fail and look like a pissy after you smashed all your shit today's!
Finished with calves, superset leg curls n extensions, single leg press n cable kick backs, hamstring curls n lunges. #meetprep#ugetwhatuworkfor#neversettle#liftheavylovehard#coupleswholift#momswhopowerlift#strongnotskinny#strongissexy#buildabooty#skwaaats
seems like everybody's hit a 140kg front squat recently so I decided to have a go at 145kg 🌚
legs were no problem but my back was screaming "pls no" so we'll call this one rpe8 🙄 ps. still repping team no calves
✔️ LEG DAY 🐓
✔️ READ BELOW FOR WORKOUT!!!
✔️ FOCUSING ON STRENGTH AND EXPLOSIVE POWER!!! 🔘 Leg Extension - 4x25reps. 1 min rest between sets. Focus on squeezing the glutes and tensing the quads at the top of the movement. Used as a pre exhaust before the main lift.
🔘Front rack box squats - 4x6-8reps. 2 min rest between sets. Sit on box/bench, keep the core tight and drive your elbows up as you push out the bottom of the rep. 🔘Box/bench step ups - 3x10reps. 90secs rest between sets. Concentrate on planting the lead leg and driving through that heel as you drive your body on top of the box/bench. Try a few without weight to get you started. Can use dumbbells as an alternative.
🔘Overhead Kettlebell lunges - 3x10reps each side. Focus on driving the kettlebell to the ceiling and keeping your shoulder stable to enable you to keep your balance. Look forward, feet shoulder width apart and drive back up as your knee touches the floor. Again, try a few without weight to get use to the movement.
Again, any questions, don't be shy ✌🏽
I haven't been posting a lot of my gym stuff or anything really because I have a phone with the memory of a fish and I refuse to get a new phone lol, anyways- yes, I still lift fam 🙌🏼💪🏼😂 Btw, 125lbs today felt like 1025lbs. Fuck me! 😭😰 Happy Hump Day Y'all ❤️ #squats#girlswhopowerlift#skwaaats#legdayfeels
5-5-3-3-3-1-1-1-1 front squats
Today I totally felt like crap - this is by no means an excuse I'm very happy with my lifts which is still down a little since my injury in February but this is the 1st time I've gone heavy since. And as you can see some of those lifts were not pretty on the 325 I lost my grip but saved the lift because my elbows where "up" that's part of the reasons why I tell you all elbows up! Proof caught on video!
Truth be told I didn't want to work out today which is the 1st time in a long time just because how bad my body is feeling from that damn festival food! I am very very happy I did work out today. I honestly toughed this one out because I watch every one of my athletes work their asses off every day and I'm not gonna be the one to let them down because I got an upset tummy.
The main take away is, sometimes you don't want to but you should try anyways cause you might surprise your self and be very glad you did!
Finally got to take a video of some #squats . I had been fighting a stupid sinus infection, my shoulder is jacked up and of course there's that little thing called #work . Anyway, I felt sluggish AF today, but managed to work up to 260x3x3. Hoping my shoulder feels better soon, so I can find a meet to compete in. Not all days at the gym are good and when you haven't been consistent, it shows 😢 #powerlifting#strong#girlswholift#skwaaats#keeppushing#girlswhopowerlift#motivated
Mock Meet 6ta edición @powerliftingrd
Muchas horas de entrenamiento, que al final valieron la pena
The grind was real!
Gracias infinitas a todos los que pujaron conmigo para subir esa barra en cada intento.
Gracias a mi team 8pm por cada momento del entrenamiento y sobre todo gracias gracias a mi familia por apoyarme con todo en esta pasión. Las Quiero!

550x3 for my top set with probably the grossest wrap job known to the lifting world. One side with an extra wrap around than the other. Nothing is ever perfect, including the lovely knee dip on my last rep. It's a mind over matter deal. I have the strength to keep them out, but when a little fatigue sets in I stop thinking about it. Must force the habit. #squats#usetheforce#skwaaats#powerlifting#saiseisports#rektpreworkout#strongman
Bar was super slippery today, also was using liquid chalk instead of my normal chalk. Still feeling better than last week tho.
505lbs/229.1kg x1 last warmup
520lbs/235.9kg x1 top single.
I honestly think that this would have been right at 9 if the bar hadn't slipped at lockout. I've never missed a deadlift on grip before so I'm blaming this one om the bar + chalk lol.
500lbs/226.8kg x2 first backoff (1/4), bar was a little slippery
Also, I've been having a bit of forearm/elbow pain, I think from squatting. Anyone have some tips?
