Tuesday truth bomb...so recently I read that most of us women..,we try to lead from a place of strength, when rather, we should lead from a place of our vulnerabilities....Shew. That hit me right in the feels. I’m not going to get all philosophical, but here’s the just of today’s post. When I stepped outside to work out today, I wore some runners shorts. I struggle with getting dehydrated pretty easily which leads to debilitating headaches. (That’s why I HAVE to use an electrolyte / BCAA / antioxidants supplement in my water when I train). It’s HOT down here in Florida. I could feel my core temp getting dangerously high....and I just said SCREW IT. I changed into my swim bottoms and rocked it out. Here’s the vulnerability part...it may not come across like it, but I am PAINFULLY conscious of my body. I usually work out in my swimmies either INSIDE my garage, or behind my house. But you know what....hiding inspires NOBODY to get out of their comfort zone. Who knows. Maybe I’ll get a note from the HOA in a few days..Lol. But today I said ‘screw You’’ right in the face of my insecurities. And I felt pretty good about it! 💪🏼 Oh. AND I cleaned and push-pressed 24kg. So there was THAT! 😜

I could hold my head up high
and it’s been a while
since I could stand
on my own two feet again"

FINALLY Bringing you a full body weight clean and press @ 185 pounds! (~84kg) . I have been working on this relentlessly for the past few months and hitting this lift feels like everything I imagined it would be. Even with all the injury and inflammation sustained along the way. .
Next thing I need to work on is maintaining a front squat stance on the catch phase cause I cant help but spread my feet apart on the pull. Any advice on. This would be much appreciated 💛. .
🚨clean and press PR🚨.
(I'm not actually sure if that's what this is).
Also this is probably the world's UGLIEST clean and press! 225lbs.
It is very CLEAR to see that I have no idea what I'm doing 😂😂😂.
Before this I did my working sets of deadlift followed by some grip training
(Holding on to 315l s as long as possible) using double overhand and mixed grip.
7 seconds D.O.
20ish sec M.G.
My weakness in deadlifts (besides my whole body) is my grip so I've decided to do something about it!
Your body WILL NOT pick up what your grip is not strong enough to hold, hence why you can lift more with straps vs. Without straps.
Plus a strong grip is NEVER a bad thing.
Why do you hate to #cleanandpress !!!! Because you use so many #body parts at once ! The main #muscle you use is ur shoulders BUT you also use traps, biceps, middle and lower back , hamis, calves , #abs , #glutes , 🍑 and quads !!!! 🏋️♂️🙌🔥 Make sure to add them 3-4 X a week 3 sets of 12 👊🏾 #bodybyjade
I’m weak. This is completely unacceptable. Hit the clean on the fourth attempt but missed the press. Twice. Couldn’t transition out of the rack position correctly. Zero excuses for that. Not an assignment, obviously, but I don’t need to be an anthropology major to tell anyone that Homo sapiens respond to public shaming, self-induced or otherwise. HOW the human in question responds is up to the individual. Well here’s my admission of weakness. Here’s my willful public shaming. And my response WILL be to hit this. Hey, I wouldn’t be studying humans at all if I didn’t believe we’re biologically built to be strong, fastidious, and stubborn in the best possible way. Why? Because we would be very, very boring if we weren’t. Not to mention extinct 💀 #anthropology#visualanthropology#cleanandpress#fail#pathetic
