Success is only possible when you decide failure is not an option and structure successful habits that eliminate the amount of choices you have to make each day. And so success is no longer a choice, but the only option- the only path paved by a series of thoughtful and intentional habits and the discipline to see them through.
Pull to Position 1 + Low Hang Snatch
I’m very excited with my progress over the past few weeks. I haven’t had any pain in my wrist and I feel like it’s allowing me to focus more on my movement. Also without anticipation of pain I feel like I can really drive the bar without hesitation. This workout definitely felt like a bit of a milestone and I’m feeling very ready for my meet in Rome!
This is such a good movement for teaching proper positioning off of the ground and it really challenges the posterior. It’s a great variation and one of my favorites.

I’ve been in the mindset of ‘enjoy life and deal with the consequences later’
I’ve eaten what I want, drank what I want & trained when I want.
The last week it’s been a struggle, not gonna lie.
I’ve noticed the smallest changes in my body and I’ve found that hard to deal with, although outsiders would probably say I look no different. I’ve been watching what I eat more during the day and I’ve found myself restricting my food if I indulged the night before. I used to train 7 days a week, recently I’ve been doing 5 days or less, which is a big deal to me because training is my therapy.
I realise this isn’t a good mindset to be in & I'm slowly getting myself out of it, but it takes time.
I know my triggers and I know how to deal with them, but sometimes it’s a slow process.
The main thing I keep reminding myself of is how happy I am at the moment and I don’t want that to change. It’s just finding a happy medium 🤷🏻♀️
Don’t really know where I’m going with this waffle, but just remember to be happy because life is short so enjoy yourself ☺️
🌟Patience and TLC 🌟
Front squats 7 x 5 115kg/254lbs
after almost a month of no shoulder work (& weeks of feeling like Humpty Dumpty), today was the first day I was able to front rack a barbell with no pain whoop whoop!! HUGE thank you to @whole_in_one_pt for sticking a bunch of needles in my shoulder and helping me through this recovery process. Little steps in the right direction are helping me get to where I want to be. I’m hungry as ever and I am confident that the best is yet to come 🌟

So yesterday I went to the physiotherapist, with all of my symptoms it looks like Sciatica.
This is a health condition characterized by pain going down the leg from the lower back and often occurs after sudden activities like heavy lifting, though it can also gradually occur.
What this basically means is that due to a spinal disc herniation pressing on one of my lumbar or sacral nerve roots it’s causing an inflammation and therefore the pain.. 75% of the time it goes away after 3 months and if it doesn’t it has to be looked at again and worst case scenario it had to be operated 😢
So what that means for now is...
- No heavy lifting - Lots of stretching - I can train upper body as long as there is no pain.
Day2 of ‘not being able to do much of anything’
Did my *allowed* 15 minutes on the treadmill and a bit of arms... nothing like properly training but gets the blood moving. Probably did a bit too much walking around Exeter today but we life and learn 🥴
Very much in need of gin and chocolate but it’s Xmas so that shouldn’t be an issue 🍫
When is @adidas going to sponsor me 😂-
Does anyone else go to the airport in a poppin outfit ✈️😂 or I’m the only one ? -
What’s your favorite brand to rock yallllllll know mine !!! _______________________________________________________
Since I didn't get the best workout yesterday.. I made sure I made the best of today! Here's some back back exercises I did today that are really gonna make me feel sore tomorrow.

Overhead work has always been really challenging for me. In middle school I had a shoulder injury which put me in PT for an extended period of time. In college I eventually had surgery and unfortunately years of long lasting pain. I have been pressing more volume than ever, heavier than ever, and my shoulder feels better than ever.
I did not pass my SFG2 back in Sept because I wasn’t able to press the 24kg bell. Honestly, it was the best thing that has happened to me athletically in a long time. I got a TON of feedback& coaching at the event and have been working with @ieatkettlebells to help me accomplish my goal.
My focus on my pressing has been stability overall. Ribs down, actually using my legs, and trusting myself. There have been a ton of details within those but that has been the overall theme.
Best lesson from missing that press in September....... I need someone to coach me, I can’t be both coach and athlete.

Sometimes we lose hope or lose sight of the goal. Sometimes you wake up and just want to go right back to sleep. Well it’s times like these where you need some motivation to never give up and never surrender!! Shout out to my boy @ynottonypena for being that light this morning when all I wanted was to shut out the day. THIS ONES FOR YOU!! #staymotivated •
WINTER GOAL IS TO GET MY LIFTING BACK ON TRACK. I’m very motivated for this upcoming year. Kevin is busy with swim and I’ve got a busy schedule studying for the MCAT/school/work. I’m going to be focusing on what I need to do for me in 2020. Summer I’ll be able to play around a lil more but this year is gonna be GOOD •

First time ever trying an Olympic lift and she's already got a better bar path than me 😫 whatever that was at the end though has GOT to go...this isn't a twirling routine. In all seriousness, I'm very proud of her as she's brand new to lifting weights entirely, so today was a pretty significant step forward in her fitness lifestyle! She's always willing to work harder and learn new things and it's only one of the traits I admire most about her 👍 Next stop, Paris 2024 😎🏋️♀️🥇🇺🇲 #olylifting#olympiclifting#weightlifting#usaw#fitness#snatch#olympics#Paris2024

Hit chest one last time where it all started. January 2011 I stepped into this hole in the wall squadron gym and started lifting the first time. I hit my first 1 rep PR’s here ending one day finally with one ugly 315 Rep. I’ve been to a lot of gyms in the last few years and hit even more PR’s. Let’s take these rusty bars and chipped weights for one last ride. #chest#chestday#ilift#gym#gains#bodybuilding#weightlifting#iburneddowncherylssheshed

2019 is coming to a close which is a big deal because it’s not just the end of a year, but the end of a DECADE. 🤯 now is the perfect time to change your mindset and change your life. Think about how much you’ve changed and learned in the past 10 years. Now with the right mindset and focus, you can double that progress during the next 10 years. Work harder. Don’t listen to the outside noise. Have fun. Treat people how you want to be treated. Focus on being 1% better at whatever it is you do every single day. Anyways that’s just my motivational tid bit on this Friday. If you’re still reading I’ll talk about my hamstring focused leg day today. I moved 405 for a top set of 4 on RDLs which is crazy for me. Worked up to 255 for a set of 5 on front squats. (I think they were pretty as well🤩) I also did a BUNCH of lighter RDL movements, hamstring curls, and calves. Riding the bike for my 20 minutes as I type this. Let’s head into 2020 on the right note. 😎
FIRED THE FUCK UP, is the only words I could use to describe how I feel when I watch this.
Emotion/intensity captured perfectly.
Another amazing video from the talented @kendallshortphoto.
In work and life, networking is crucial. I am beyond pleased to be able to add such a talented individual to my network and look forward to working with him many more times on projects.
Lifters, if you see yourself in the video please drop a thank you to Kendall.
For others, let us know what you think about the video?!
Unfortunately he was only available Saturday, so for the Sunday lifters we apologize your lifting is not included. We can only hope he is free and available for both days on our next 2 day meet.
