Progress comes in baby steps ☺ Same weight 67.5kg/148.5 lbs. Happy with how this moved despite the lack of sleep because exams 😩 The grind literally doesn't stop. Top was my 2nd attempt from provs (I failed my 3rd lol). Bottom was from last night. Thank you @aliciaamac for the handoff!. . @afterburnbarbell @aserettt
TRX HACK COMIN AT YA. ... The TRX tricep extension is a great movement to incorporate into a full body TRX workout or into the latter portion of a traditional push workout. However, I’ve had many clients relay to me that the movement feels tricky at first and it can take some getting used to. This can take valuable time out of a session or if you’re preforming the movement yourself, can take valuable time out of your workout. To create a bit more stability and combat this issue, simply place a dowel across to two straps and preform your extensions from the dowel. The movement and muscles work stay exactly the same without the tedious process associated with learning the traditional extension. While you have that set up, end your workout with some push ups on the dowel- this will create a lack on stability in the push up position and will force you to stabilize your body with your core while you get the added volume for the chest and triceps through the push up itself 😏 ... TRX extension -2-3 sets of 10-12 reps at the end of a push workout TRX push-up- 2 sets of 10-14 at the end of a push workout
BIGGER BADDER BENCH MAX IN 2 WEEKS!! 3 Step program. Follow this simple program for 2 weeks and have a max rep day at the end off 2 weeks to measure progress. 1) BIG BENCH MONDAY 2) TRICEP DAY 3) SPEED BENCH. Each day has a significant purpose.Be sure to get proper rest and recovery from the amount of abuse your chest is going to endure. Becoming stronger is a challenge. Not everyone is going to be able to put in the work. Therefore not everyone deserves to reap the rewards for effectively trying to improve. @tuffwraps #tuffwraps #TBT #motivationalquotes #internationalchestday #benchpress #bench #powerlifting #strengthtraining #leroywalker #flexfriday #howmuchyabench #biggerfasterstronger #benchpress #bench
👉🏽Apparently the value of how hardcore you are depends on how big your bench press is. - 😂I don’t know if that’s true, but you’re going to be asked how much you bench eventually, so might as well get really really strong at benching. - 💪🏾Plus you’ll make epic chest, shoulders, and triceps gainz for the gram. - 👉🏽So here’s how to skyrocket your bench press numbers. - 1️⃣First, train your back every workout. Doesn’t have to be a lot, but your back can handle a lot of volume. It’s the foundation for every upper body exercise and is often far too weak and unstable in most guys. - 2️⃣Next is to add dips and close grip bench presses to your workouts. Simply put, if you can get stronger at these lifts, your bench press will go up. - 3️⃣And lastly don’t forget to deload every 4-8 weeks. This means reducing volume and/or intensity of your exercises for a week so you can recover like a champ. Be sure not to listen to people who say deloads are for wimps. Ironically these people are the same people who’s bench numbers stay the same year round. - 👊🏾Now get after it my friend. I’ll talk to you tomorrow. #bencheveryday #benchpr #benchpressfail #deload #deloadweek #deloadweekfeels #closegrip #dips #dipset #setsonsets #repsonreps #backtraining #backdayeveryday #howmuchyabench #howmuchyoubenchbro #howmuchyoubench #benching #benchpressday #benchpresspr #benchpressparty #bigchest #tricepsworkout #backwork #newpr #shouldergains #gainsongains

Good Morning Warriors - Leg Day Tip! 🙂👍 @drcaseychiro (@make_repost ) ・・・ FIXING THE FORWARD-LEANING SQUAT 🏋🏼‍♀️ One of the most common squatting mistakes is leaning too far forward. 🚫This can indicate weak glutes or tight hip flexors. This squatting error places massive stress on the lower back and takes the tension off the quads, which is the primary muscle group that you want to target with this lift. Here are 5 tips to help fix this problem: 1️⃣You may be going too heavy to engage in proper form- Try dropping the weight and focusing on *form*- this alone can adjust your squat. 2️⃣Sit back and press from your your heels when you squat. Shifting your weight to the balls of your feet will cause you to lean forward. If your heels come off the ground when you squat, you may have tight calves or poor ankle mobility. Foam rolling the calves, and performing ankle mobility drills will help! 3️⃣Tighten the upper back and hug your elbows towards your sides when squatting. This will force your chest up. 4️⃣When you come out of the squat, drive your legs outwards and upwards- sinking deeper into the squat will allow your torso to be in an upright position. If you require greater hip mobility, practice some of the drills in my previous posts! 5️⃣Try front squats to teach your body to sit upright. These tips will help reduce your risk of injury, and will also help you get maximum gains from this staple exercise! 💪🏼 TAG A FRIEND TO SHARE THE WEALTH! #olympicweightlifting #gymjunkie #sportsperformance #mobilitywod #olympiclifting #usapl #powerlifting #powerlifter #athletictraining #powerliftingmotivation #usapowerlifting #girlswhotrain #howmuchyabench #powerliftingwomen #powerliftinglife #liftclean #whyicompete #mastersathlete #conjugatemethod #squatlife #goldsgymsocal #clanginandbangin #strengthtrain #hipmobility #squatlife #bootygainz #legdayexercise #correctiveexercise #backpain #posturecorrection

Yesterday, I got a membership at a powerlifting gym for me AND THE SMOL HUMAN CHILD!!! I'm thinking she'll be better suited for sumo deadlifts with her crazy long legs, but I definitely want her to nail conventional first. Moving forward, we'll be focusing on core stability, bracing, keeping the bar close, head position, and locking out every rep so we can earn @sirveyr approval 😂 in the set before the video shown, she pulled the same weight one time and I asked her how many times she thought she could lift it. She told me just once. So I let her take her rest, did my set, then told her to go take some big gulps of water and come back and give me 3 reps. I made it work with what the gym had, but definitely looking into investing in a technique bar and some training plates for her. We kept it light and fun. Top priority for her is nailing good form before pushing for big weights. I also don't want to push her so hard that she begins to resent training. I want her to fall in love with it the same way I did, so for the most part, I let her set her own pace. For my #deadcember day 11, I did conventional deadlifts instead of trap bar deadlifts since there was no trap bar at this gym 🤷 worked up to 80% with no pain 😁 I loved having a deadlift jack, but what I loved the most was that sticky competition bench 😍😍😍 I knew that the benches in commercial gyms were slicker than the benches used in competition, but I had no idea just how much it was affecting my ability to get into and maintain a good arch!! My arch had never felt so good and I don't wanna bench on a commercial gym bench ever again. 10/10 worth the drive out to Milton. @deadcemberofficial @penandpaperstrengthapp
Probably the best cut I've ever done. Lost 9kg/20lbs in two months, feeling mentally and physically fantastic and didn't lose any strength whatsoever. I will keep going for another two week, and than start a reverse dieting phase that will become a hypertrophy phase. ----------- DM for personal online training. ----------- #bodybuildingmotivation #bodybuilding #powerlifting #squat #benchpress #deadlift #strong #beastmode #strong #apestrong #gainz #gym #fit #fitfam #teenbodybuilder #stayfit #fitness #strongman #abs #bulk #huge #weightgain #transformation #motivation #nevergiveup #teenathlete17 #cutting #howmuchyabench #halfnatty

I've got a lot of weak points in my lifting, hamstrings, quads and calves. Here's the single leg squats to address quads from Monday's Max Effort Squat day. Single leg stuff sucks but everyone avoids it. I guess that's why @cal.dietz @drjohnrusin and @defrancosgym emphasize it, even for non-athletes like myself. Also fun fact, it's in the Vault 2 pdf from @elitefts so @underthebar and Westside new the usefulness and just rarely needed to implement it for their own training, or at least until the fixing Dave Tate series came out. #powerlifting #squat #benchpress #deadlift #strongman #crossfit #Bodybuilding #figure #physique #motivation #recovery #rehab #fitness #inspiration #rps #uspa #usapl #gym #exercise #homegym #fitness #howmuchyabench #conjugate #gnzszn #livelearnpasson #elitefts #instafit #muscle #gpp #conjugatemethod

Today's squat training was performed between rock climbing routes with @Stunt_Pirate. This was the last set of 225x5x5. The idea in my lifting is to keep everything EASY, which for me, is actually the hardest part. When I competed in strength sports, for the most part, I trained as hard as I could recover from. MRV (Maximal Recoverable Volume) was king. In a very broad way, as long as I could recover from training and avoid injury or movement dysfunction, more was more, and I always sought to push that boundary. After over a year off of lifting, I started my first workout at 135, and I'm slowly adding weight every training session. It's progression at a snail's pace, but it's light, easy and I can train without any negative effects; I feel 0 soreness and fatigue. It's like the lifts didn't happen. I'm not sure where the climb will start to slow down towards a maintenance number, so I'm adding no more than 10 lbs a session. Everything is going to be kept under an RPE 7 (minimum of 3 reps left in the tank) and I've permanently cut out the belt, sleeves, straps and any other lifting implements. The goal is to maintain some of the strength and resilience I built during strength sport competition, but in the context of combat sports. When I quit strength sports, a volume squat day would be 415x7x7, with 3-5 accessory lifts that had even more reps. In the same week, an intensity day would be 445x3x7, still with tons of accessory work. In the next 2-4 months, I'd be ecstatic to level out and maintain with 315x5x5. The goals are different, but strength is still important. It feels good to be back under the bar but it's nice to be able to have fun with it instead of engaging in soul crushing marathon lifts.

Low Bar 585x1 Just a little beat and I need to let somethings recover so I didn’t do much. Just hit some accessories after and called it. I will deload after this week before I go back into some volume work again. My low back strength is way up, but I can tell my leg strength isn’t where it needs to be. I’ll be working on that next cycle then after that I’ll be looking to peak for a meet.

5x3 280 with 5 reps on the last set. Form is feeling more locked in than ever! Pulling the bar further out of the rack, and getting my feet as far back as possible to keep my arch big and my touch point high. Super confident, and I’m sure some substantial training PRs will be smashed this meet prep. Followed up with 5s with 300 slingshot bench for some extra heavyish volume, and some chest and tricep accessories. Great crew tonight. Nothing better than having Iike minded people around you in the pursuit of your dreams. Fuck average (even though my bench is still pretty average)

650 vs 650 Incline. 6 plates #duffalobar & 25 + collars on side = 650 What a difference speed training makes. The top was set was from Monday. The bottom was last Monday. Both are #benchdaddy overloaded. The main difference was the speed off the chest. After the session on Monday last, I made a drastic effort to increase the speed training of several movements in auxiliary training. I feel the adjustment has paid off. I’m not completely done ✅. I’m still not satisfied enough with the overall groove . When ever I see a hitch or slow down I know I need to increase the load capacity of triceps. Adding more volume and pounds per set should do the trick. Stay tuned for next week to see what happens. This is a great example of how side by side comparison video can help you tremendously during meet prep. #isymfs #leroywalker #positivevibes #howmuchyabench #benchpress #duffalobar #gymmotivation #kabukistrength #ironaddicts @ironmusclenutrition @tuffwraps @kabukistrengthlab @lockjawcollars @handarmorchalk

The bench press tip today is simple and actionable. If possible, find a local gym that allows you access to a bar that you can parallel grip press on OR purchase one for your own use. . This bar has angled handle positions which allows for a total of six different pressing variations! . As many of you are aware, the more pressing variations / angles / grips that you can employ the more lagging weak points you can eliminate over time. . The fewer weak points you have, the wider your base foundation of strength which contributes to further gains along your individual continuum of strength and a lowered risk of injury. . It also happens to make training quite a bit more enjoyable when variation is frequently employed as it keeps you on your toes and constantly hitting personal bests (wide grip parallel press is of course counted as a separate life from a medium grip parallel press) which is much more rewarding than monotonous training where one executes the same exercise week in and week out. . For individuals who have beat up shoulders from frequent, high volume or heavy benching (or both) or from previous injuries often they will find that pressing with a neutral hand placement allows for pain free pressing. . Furthermore, pressing in a pain free range of motion often allows those same individuals to build up adequate strength in the pecs, shoulders and triceps to return to a traditional barbell bench press in the future if they so desire! (Not always the case, but frequently an outcome of employing this pressing variation for a solid block of training). . Have you ever worked with a bar that allows you to use a neutral grip pressing position? If so – did you like it? Why or why not?

Still lifting, doing my best to enjoy the reduced frequency and lighter weights. It’s actually been a nice change of pace but looking forward to hopefully pushing things again come the new year. Solid triple with 425lbs at an 8. Drop down 5s with 385lbs.

First set, heaviest single, last set. This is the shit I love, next to the actual platform. I love chiseling and hammering away at my form. LOVE IT. nothing heavy here. Just pushed my heels down and realllllllly (tried) focused on constant tension through the whole body. I have the tendency to just press with my upper body only, which isn’t bad (bro benchers, hold your applause 🙈), but it’s a full body movement. I might as well use the full fucking body. Love the journey and you’ll love the sport.
