Little close up of my working set squats today πŸ’πŸ’ seem to be pushing with my right leg and swinging my bum so may need to have a little look at evening out the pressure but other than that pretty please with my form πŸ™ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ’ͺπŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Tried to focus on control all the way down and "ALL THE WAY UP" 🎧. Added on 10 more pounds to the squat today making it a total of 145lbs. This is the heaviest I could go without sacrificing the new form I learned for low bar squats. I also learned that when I breathe naturally I say "coo" every time I let out a breath. The dudes next to me were grunting like badasses and I'm over here cooing. How cute. πŸ˜’ This along with straight leg deadlifts has my legs πŸ’€. #livefortheburn #doitforyou #powerlift #powerliftingwomen #girlswhopowerlift #lift #strong #strongisbeautiful #transphormationchallenge2017 #1stphorm #transphormation #swuats #booty #coo #junk #junkbrands #underarmour

The left was 2012, where I was already lifting weights for a year. The right is just a couple of days ago. Five years of lifting between these two photos. I also weigh 20lbs more and am so much happier and confident.

A little tri and chest action this morning - not gonna lie didn't feel on my A game today, I have, what the doctor called, Eustachian tube dysfunction, so my ear was throbbing and I was sneezing most of this workout. I was wanting to get my first Spartan WOD of the year in today but running with blocked ears didn't sound fun...now comes time to take some prednisone steroids to get over this πŸ˜€πŸ˜“πŸ˜³ #girlswhopowerlift #girlswholift #bodybuilding #livefit #grrrlarmy #liftlikeagrrrl

Selfies 2 days in a row?! Yes so deal with it. Did my old "backside" (back & glutes) workout today. Traps, glutes, & quads with no calves... Yep, #bodybypowerlifting πŸ˜‚πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‘ #girlswhopowerlift #peachgang #trapqueen #fitfam #momstrong #likeagirl #swolelife #momsactinglikemeatheads

Sets of 8. Anything over 5 reps feels like complete death to me. This isn't even my top set. But training for powerlifting again starting out with volume and trying to drop some of this accidental bulk 🐷 however my ass has never been bigger πŸ‘πŸ’ͺ#cardiodeath #squatcardio #squats #volume #backsquat #powerlifting #gwpl #girlswholift  #girlswhopowerlift #accidentalbulk
Did a lil light bench work yesterday after my sumos and goggins stiff leg deadlifts. I really felt the activation of my glutes and hams when I did those goggins stiff legs. They were on πŸ”₯ especially after sumos. Haven't done those in a hot minute.

8x4x140 bench. Changing things up and showing myself failing my 7th set. Thanks @moe_ibrahim for the spot ❀
Bench used to be my strongest lift, funny how things change lol. My bench has been getting weaker for the past few months. So sleepy, my eyes are burning & closing by themselves. So ready to whip through accessories so I can go home πŸ˜‚

First time with 240# for reps, was able to get in 6. Might have had one more in me, but number 6 felt like a grind (more so than it looks) so I wanted to play it safe. 53 days out until meet! #strongstrongfriends #girlswhopowerlift #barbellsandbows #gwplgear #homegym #skwaats #legday #inzerbelt #romaleos2 #rpowerlifting #250kchallenge #bodybuildingcom
Pudding for those of us on poverty carbs: sugar free jelly, banana whey yoghurt and a few mini marshmallows because marshmallows are LIFE and even those of us who are too fat for our weight class deserve nice things. 🍨

Day by day. Week by day. Trusting the process. 4 sets of 145x7 followed by 4 sets of 75x7 bench #powerlifting #girlswhopowerlift #squats #volume #fitlife #onmyownjourney
Squats at 295x2, although @nbsfitnessowner thought one rep was just fine. Followed with deadlifts that ended up looking like RDL's wit chainz. #arnold #xpcfinals #youredonehereelyse #girlswhopowerlift #squats #walka5kwith295lb #powerlifting
The best days start with...
Peanut butter + Squats + Days off = πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ Felt strong under the bar today.
This is 4 x 4 @80kg.  Focus on good set up, breath and range. 
That neck vein though πŸ˜‚

Yesterday, one of the homiebros asked me why I started powerlifting. This is one of the reasons - all three of "the big three" lifts are full body movements. I don't think most people realize this. Squat and deadlift are sooooo not just leg or lower body and bench is not just chest or upper body. An effective powerlifter uses their whole body to power the entire movement.

Today I did dad @skrongman proud and hit 6 reps @240. Basically added 30+ lbs to my squat in a month and some change. That's a massive PR (for now). 9 weeks out maybe I'll be part of the 3 hunna club. It was clearly real hard to breathe with a mouth guard. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’…πŸΏ #girlswhopowerlift #arlingtonstrength #americanbarbellclub #strongwoman

So I'm going to go ahead and continue with these weekly side by sides. One more thing to motivate me! On top of getting married this year & possibly competing again. 
Def more bloated this week, but I was bad and drank too much drank on Saturday and am still paying for it. Water, Protein, Lift, Repeattt

Banded kettlebell deadlifts are an excellent exercise to help with glute engagement! A great accessory lift on deadlift day :Dβ €

Bi's and tri's today when I should have been doing quads and squats πŸ™Š. First clip is one of my favs for triceps. Low weight so that you can keep your arm steady. I also do these with the cable over my head with my back facing the weight, pulling downward. 4 sets of 10 per arm. Second clip is one of the best ways (for me) to isolate my biceps and not allow my shoulders to take on some of the weight. That sometimes happens unintentionally when I'm doing standard curls with dumbbells or a bar no matter how close I pay attention to form. 5 sets of 12. These can be done single arm too if you only have one side of the resistance machine.

#bench from this morning. Two sets of 55kg x 3 but I failed the last rep. I couldn't quite set up right today and it felt a bit off but such is life. Not every day is going to be perfect. A non stellar lifting performance doesn't mean I'm a non stellar human.

I'M BAAAACKKK.
It felt like it was time. Well, honestly, it felt like time a few days ago, but this weekend was crap, so I didn't get back under the bar until today. Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―
No program. No plan. Just the desire to powerlift again. πŸ”₯πŸ’―
I did a 3x3 @ #205, not too bad for my first time back in, oohh, three weeks? And you'll just have to trust me when I say my first two sets were prettier lol #datstumbledoe This last set was my body saying, 'thx but I'm done ✌✌✌.' Anywho, this workout felt 2 parts great and 2 parts totally weird. 
I mixed in pull-ups, chin-ups, and push ups, because I'm narcissistic and afraid I'm losing my muscles. πŸ˜€πŸ’ͺ

Decent bench day- got 1 set of 135x4, dropped it to 130x4 for the last 3 sets. Then destroyed my chest and triceps with accessory work. Dead 😦

Comp squat @ 220 lbs for 6x4 and Touch n' go bench @ 120 lbs for 6x4. Skwaats felt on point today but I wish I could say the same for bench. My bench (especially my closed grip) felt like absolute garbage. My right pec felt VERY tight and it just wasn't a good time πŸ˜–. Gotta move forward, regardless. @ariantank .

Well, I'll tell you one thing for free... 1️⃣ After 16 months of lifting the heaviest weights I possibly can 4 x week
2️⃣ Doing zero πŸ‘ŒπŸΌcardio 
3️⃣ Reverse dieting up to 2300ish cals a day 
4️⃣ Intermittent Fasting
77kgs looks a LOT different now than it before. ~ 
I will say this though - being back in my routine for 2 days: training to a programme & eating like an athlete has done WONDERS for my mental health!!!

Random mom at school pickup " excuse me ma'am your hair is so beautiful, how do you do it every day" 
Me honestly trying not to sound like a snarky bitch because I in no way wanted to " I shower at night and let it air dry in an untied braid and for the next 3-5 days between sweat and dry shampoo it just works"

Random mom at school pickup " excuse me ma'am your hair is so beautiful, how do you do it every day" Me honestly trying not to sound like a snarky bitch because I in no way wanted to " I shower at night and let it air dry in an untied braid and for the next 3-5 days between sweat and dry shampoo it just works" Her " that's crazy" #liftshit  #lift  #lifting  #alphafemale  #liftingladies  #momswholift  #liftingmoms  #prosupps  #pstakeover  #trusttheprocess  #momswithmuscles  #momswhopowerlift  #girlswholift  #girlswithmuscles  #girlswhopowerlift  #liftheavy  #gymlife  #liftinglife  #womenwhopowerlift  #powerliftingmadethisbody  #powerliftingwomen  #dryshampoo

My socks don't match but at least they're both blue ☝

Video won't post but I got some feedback after. There was a teeny break as I lifted and I used my arms a bit too much. But I'd skipped lunch and was starving after a day of no food, which isn't a smart condition under which to lift, so I wasn't on my game. *smh* gotta be more careful (DON'T DO STUPID THINGS!!! @cashewnutwhat) Not all lifts will be good lifts πŸ˜”

Ikkje noen syke vekter, eller masse reps, men 60kg fΓΈltes endelig lett ut igjen!! πŸ™ŒπŸ» 3x5 med mellombredt grep gikk som ein lek πŸ’ƒπŸ» #gettingthere #benkpress #benchpress #styrkelΓΈft #haugalandatletklubb #hulΓ₯ #powerlifting #jentersomlΓΈfter #girlswhopowerlift #womenwholift #skalblisterk #styrketrening
#transformationtuesday. I do miss being this strong. But hey I at least am able to keep PRing my bench until my back is better. 145 bench is awesome even if I can only deadlift 215.

Part ✌️of last nights workout - deathlifts πŸ’€ off 45lb plates. Definitely caught a ride on the struggle bus for these... my right hand kept getting stuck on my leg making the bar roll out which was beyond frustrating. But it is what it is. Really haven't moved 335 that much - because i suck at deadlifts - so at least this weight is moving.

I'm taking exercise physiology and it's SO interesting. #nerdstatus I'm curious to see how this class (along with the others I'm taking) will influence my approach to programming. In the mean time, check out my latest blog post for a glimpse into my current training block- link in profile!

Squat maxes today! My first attempt was 240, and the second clip is 245.  I'm still going really slow at the top, because I'm perpetually in fear of getting pain again. But I'm pretty happy with these regardless.  Besides, doesn't slow and steady win the race? 🐒πŸ’ͺπŸ˜„ #LiftNextLevel

Super excited to share that I'm featured on @gaglionestrength 's "Powerlifting for the People" podcast this week! In my episode, I talk about the transition from ballet to powerlifting, overcoming lingering dance injuries, and why I think every woman should lift weights!

I'm so honored that John asked me to be a part of this series, alongside some amazing and strong women that have inspired me throughout my powerlifting journey. John was my first "real" coach and I've continued to learn from him through the years. If you haven't heard of him, definitely check him out! He puts on a lot of really cool seminars at his gym in Long Island!

I was talking to one of my clients this morning about her deadlift feeling off, so we took a peek at her starting position to try to fix it. The deadlift set up and starting position are some of the most important parts of the lift (besides brute strength). If you set up poorly, you're setting yourself up for a bad time. It's kinda like that porridge we all heard about in the 3 bears: you need your hips not too high, not too low, but juuuusssstt right. And this "ideal" can look different for everyone, depending on their leg and limb length. Common things to see are: hips rising quickly if you set up too low (are aren't patient in the lift), rounded back if you aren't maintaining that tightness, or dying..because it's a deadlift.

Some cues/tips I like to tell people: 
1. Mentally prepare yourself to pull 
2. Grab the bar real freaking tight 
3. Take a deep breath 
4. Pack your lats//tighten your upper back. Think of pulling your shoulder blades down and back into your pockets, twisting your elbows, or even just squeezing your shoulder blades together. 
5. Lower your hips just enough so that your shoulder blades are directly above the bar or slightly behind. Think of being able to draw a line STRAIGHT down from your shoulders to the bar in a side view of a video
6. Pull and pray. (Jk I think drive with my legs and pull with my shoulders up and back to keep my chest up and avoid clip 1 or 3) 
TLDR: even if I suck at the deadlift, I've read a lot about it. I just suck.
