Hit a new PR on my Bench Press Max with 1 board, check it out! Got 195#
I’m 2 weeks and 4 days away from the Texas State Powerlifting Competition. I’m feeling the most confident about my lifts than ever for this coming meet! Gonna smash some records!
Today was Kelly’s first max effort deadlift day and I’m happy to report that she is finally pulling me weight than me!
Like my band rig?! Ha
Busy morning with a max box squat session, maxing out at 140# followed by deficit deadlifts, stiff legged deadlifts & back extensions. Good morning low back!
We maxed out at 235 today! We’ve been training to break PRs but since she’s expressed interest in powerlifting in competition, moving forward we’ll be training the box squat to ensure we’re hitting depth every time!
I’m really excited for my friend and client, Chandler, who I’ve been working with since late December. With goals of weight training, Chandler followed an exercise program for her to do on her own. She essentially did it on her own, I just gave her some tools =)
I’m diggin’ this new training program I’m on and about 7 weeks in. I’m feeling really strong and progressing fast. I’ve changed my macros and seeing my body grow nicely. I max out in about a week to see where I’m at then I’ll have about 6 more weeks until the Texas State Powerlifiting meet in San Antonio. More videos to come, thanks for watching =)
Stoked about getting back into training! I’m about 15 weeks out til my next competition, the Texas State Powerlifting Meet April 18th 2015. I took a few weeks off after my last (and 5th ) competition of 2014 which was on Dec 7th and it feels like forever ago!
I’m looking forward to a new training program which will incorporate more Dynamic Effort days and working with band tension and chains. I’ll be strength training on M/W/F/Su as well as Spartan Race training with my team every Saturday morning. Cheers to year #2 of continued strength, breaking records and being a bad ass!!
Speed Pulls at 55% 10×10
Heavy ass shrugs 4×10-12
Pull Ups 4xfailure
Side Bends 45/15(5)
This event took place weekend of July 18th 2014 in Las Vegas. I was super stoked to have qualified to compete at this level. The whole experience was not perfect or close to it for me. My coach was not able to travel at the last minute so it was just my training partner and I. We did, however, hook up with an excellent coach and fellow powerlifter named Matthew Barba from Brownsville TX. I couldn’t have pulled through some of the lifts without his coaching. Overall, I was not happy with my performance. My goal was qualify for Worlds but I was about 30# short. I’ll try again in September at the Capitol of Tx Open in Austin. I did place 2nd and brought home a nice big silver medal, not bad for my 3rd meet 🙂 These were the only pics I took from the event. Unfortunately, I did not get any video or pics of my lifts 😦
It’s back to training, 6 weeks til the next meet!
Training videos to come…
