Great session yesturday considering I have been a bit poorly this week pushing me to miss 2 sessions. But it is always wise to take the time you need to recover to return to full health nice and quickly!! I am a bugger for being in denial when I am ill thus the illness drags out alot longer than it needed to. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ - But this time I listened to my body took rest when it was required and as a results only missed 2 days of training and almost back to full health 😍😍😍 - This training session was an amalgamation to try and get the most important work done that I had missed. - High bar pause squats Top set of 6 @110kg - Deadlifts 3x7@125kg - Deficit deadlifts top set of 5@120kg - - On to next week πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ - Β #epf #europeanchampionships #euro2018 #sbd #teamgb #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD #britishstrengthmagazine #strengthandconditioningcoach Β  #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete #britishstrengthmagazine #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #sbdpowerlifting #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward

Did not feel the greatest during yesturdays session, squats felt a bit all over the place and head space a bit foggy. However got through all that I needed to, the best I could on this given day.

BACK TO THE BLUE LINE!! Still using my tape on the floor for my squats to make sure my feet are level πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Consistency is key πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ - Going to be honest, Squats yesturday got me feeling frustrated as I did that thing where I go on to my toes. It's frustrating because it's "old news" and I KNOW it's something I can CONTROLE !! However it only becomes a problem if I let it, it happened, not that much at all (so just chill the hell out😱😱) , accept it, learn from, come back better! - Low bar squat top set of 5 @124kg - Front squat top triple PB πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ @110kg - - - Β #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD #britishstrengthmagazine #strengthandconditioningcoach Β  #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete #britishstrengthmagazine #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #sbdpowerlifting #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward
Finally after months of perseverance starting to find my groove again with deadlifts. The shoulder and hip issues I was having was certainly playing havoc with this lift, especially in the last 3 weeks running up to all England's. However, I can finally lift pain free consistently and I am almost lifting with the good form I had previously developed. - Deadlift used to be my strongest lift out of the big 3 (back in the day weighing just 53kg) but due to a multitude of unfortunate events that's certainly not the case right now. But I refuse to have a weaker lift and I'm going to keep pushing forward to get all my lifts better and better in What ever way I can. #passionfortheprocess #alwayslearning - Videos shown 7 reps @127.5kg reset deadlifts - 5 reps @155kg block pulls from the knee - Was exceptionally pleased leaving this session just from keeping my head in the game, evaluating what I can do better from previous sessions and executing it! - - #journey #stickwithit #beliefispower Β #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD #britishstrengthmagazine #strengthandconditioningcoach Β  #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete #britishstrengthmagazine #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #sbdpowerlifting #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward

Got some excellent feed back from the coach😍😍😍 @rhayes_strengthcoach says that it is noticeable my squat form and movement has improved!! Music to my ears 😁😁 Thanks coach!! - OH AND ALSO NO HIP OR SHOULDER PAIN WAAAHHHHH!

Straight forward bench session yesturday apart from a very poorly executed triple @80kg πŸ€”πŸ€” very inconsistent, decided to not let it sink into my chest, touching too low and basically not pausing πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ.

Brought the HYPE with me today been working off RPE for this bench session and I had a goal of 10x3 with 40-60s rest @75kg for feet up comp grip.... and I did it!! (Last set shown) - Wednesdays deadlifts also a 10x3 with 40-60s rest @127.5kg (last set shown) also very tough especially in this heat but buzzing I got through it with some decent bar speed 🌞🌞. First time using my SBD belt, which is such an honour to have and I love it as well the incredible sabo deadlifting shoes ❀❀❀ Feeling very fortunate and grateful 😍😍😍 - - As I believe I have mentioned before I am currently in an off season/ rehabilitation phase  really trying to get my body stronger,  moving more efficiently and ironing out some niggles and imbalances. So far, there are certainly ups and downs but overall there is alot of positivity and my head is staying in the game. Something that I know I take into every session and have done for along time is INTENT.  I attack every exercise with maximum intent because I want to get better at what I do every single day. Whether that be max out deadlifts, pelvic tilts, set of 10 on bicep curls or a 60s plank i want commit to performing everything as best as i can. Everything is in the programme for a reason and I want to get stronger at everything I do because I want to be the best version of myself I can be and be a champion ❀❀❀ Be your own champion and follow your own path to be the best version of yourself you can be!! - 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞 - #offseason #workonweaknessesanddevelopyoursstrengths  #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD #strengthandconditioningcoach   #deload #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward
Felt very matchy matchy yesturday in the new limited edition summer range by @sbdapparel !! I love the wrist wraps, these ones are the flexi ones in medium size and worked so perfectly for squats! - ❀❀❀ - Here is a set of 8 @80kg for front squats, first time doing full depth squats since all England's and I think they were quite a success. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ - Managed to do some pin squats (but forgot to record) 10x2 40s rest @110kg. Nothing toooo crazy with the weight just working hard with short rest periods πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯ and just testing out the hip. It wasn't perfect, which I didn't expect it to be, but it's another step in the right direction. - #sbdsummeredition #passionfortheprocess Β #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD #strengthandconditioningcoach Β  #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward

Just trying to load the shoulder girdle progressively. - Yes I am wearing my walking trainers 🀣🀣they are the only shoes I have currently where I can lift and have my insoles in; as I can finally introduce myself to training with my insoles in Whoop!! - Excited for my new deadlift shoes to arrive ❀❀❀❀❀ - #passionfortheprocess #alwayslearning  #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD #strengthandconditioningcoach   #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind
First bench session in 3 weeks, tested out my hip which not too bad still quite abit of work to do but progress is being made πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ - Here is a top set of 5 at 73kg definitely not executed the best but lots of technical que's to work on. Sets definitely got better as the session went on, getting in the groove and loved the new addition of pin press ❀❀❀ - Thank you @rhayes_strengthcoach for being there to coach me through these sessions!

πŸ”ΉMealZ of the WeekπŸ”Ή 1.) lunch: spaghetti squash chicken pad Thai (added zucchini, bean sprouts, and almonds instead of peanuts) 2.) dinner: chicken/turkey meatloaf and creamy mashed cauliflower (you’ll need a food processor for this) So, the second meal isn’t necessarily paleo because I added Parmesan cheese to the cauliflower and breadcrumbs to the meatloaf. Other than that...you can modify it how you want it! πŸ’ͺ🏾 #fitandfiner #fitnessjourney #spaghettisquash #cauliflower #partialpaleo #foodislove #foodisfitness #fit #finer #mealprepsundays #gainz #menandwomenwholift #nomnomnom
Been loving experimenting with this exercise; seated over head press, top set of 7 reps with 42.5kg. - Embracing this off season and working on as many weaknesses as I can and fine tuning some technical faults. @rhayes_strengthcoach Giving me freedom to try many new things ❀❀ - Working very hard from a rehab perspective also. Now my body is able to rest and recover properly myself and @adam_uclan_physio are able to be very specific, focused, and shall we say thorough during treatment. I felt pretty exhausted after today's physio session, but in a great way! Been working with Adam at uclan for over a year now and couldn't recommend him enough to any athlete.

RECOVERY WEEK! Spent this week recovering from all England's comp and making sure my body has a proper rest. Doing as much rehab as I can for my shoulder and hip but mostly much needed REST! Here is a snippet from my session on Friday very hamstring dominant and all with my new insoles for my feet so lots of new things. - - The GHD's and good mornings have always been exercises I have struggled to incorporate for multiple reasons; mainly overactive spinal erectors, poor pelvic movement and simply very weak hamstrings!! Hoping to finally incorporate these into training and build up strength in my posterior chain, FINALLY! Very excited for this as it means my movement at my pelvis is making progress 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁 - - #consistencyiskey #believeinthejourney  #strengthandconditioningcoach   #passionfortheprocess #alwayslearning #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
All England's comp summary; I did exactly what I went there to do! Made weight at 56.8kg, actually ate alot of food to fuel the day (which I normally struggle to do so much on comp day) stayed calm and incontrol of my nerves better than I ever have done and got hyped at the right times! All of this I couldn't be happier with I am so flipping proud of my self. - Ended the day with a Gold medal πŸ₯‡, 412.5kg total and a 480wilks πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ Both all time PB's. And enjoyed every second !! - Squat 157.5kg (All time PB) - Bench 92.5kg (All time PB) - Second attempt Deadlift 162.5kg - I didn't take my third deadlift due to a sublaxation of my sternoclavicular joint 3 weeks ago causing lots of shoulder pain when I deadlift, so we new going in to the comp I was only going to take 162.5kg to reduce the risk of a dislocation. - Unfortunatly things havnt been plain sailing with injuries and niggles, which is very rarley is when you are trying to be the best possibly athlete you can be. Its just about making the most of what you have everyday! - A massive massive thank you to the best team an athlete could ask for; @rhayes_strengthcoach @joesadler97 @adam_uclan_physio I can't thank you guys enough for all your continuous help support and expertise and I am beyond grateful everyday! - Time to enjoy the victory, then back to the drawing board for the next journey! - #passionfortheprocess #keepmovingforward #strengthandconditioningcoach #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

My immediate reaction to this set was ahhhhhhhhh frustration because I new i didn't execute it as well as I could. However, pulled it back nice and quick and thought about it objectively and new my stance wasn't wide enough. Silly moo!!

Friday's squats session went really well, hip still isn't perfect and pelvis still not quite corrected but thanks to @adam_uclan_physio as always; it is making great progress !! Avoided high bars for about 2 weeks (ish) to let things settle down in my hip; so to come back and hit these numbers and to have maintained my new technique shows to me the progress I have made in multiple areas and came out of this session extremely happy.

Wasn't feeling too hot on my deadlift day this week @black_country_barbell lots of sitting and travelling are certainly not beneficial to lifting!! - However, very happy to have gone in and put my all in and come out feeling positive! People talk alot about mindset and how important it is and I am a huge advocate for this. It's ok to not feeling 100% and a bit sluggish going into the gym, work, college or what ever it might be. But knowing you put 100% effort into what you want to achieve should be goal for every day in and outside of the gym. - β–ͺDL Top Single 157.5kg β–ͺDL 3x3 @ 140kg β–ͺPause DL 3x3 @125kg β–ͺRow 3x7 @70kg - - #strengthandconditioningcoach Β  #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
