🚨MAJOR MILESTONE🚨 Finally hit that elusive 300# squat with more in the tank. PRAISE BE! needed a win today like woah. Thanks to my solid coach and best bud @elitetowelfitness for always knowing how to push just the right amount. #squats #squateveryday #powerlifter #powerlifting #thisisfemalepowerlifting #strengthtraining #solcanastrength
Progress doesn’t happen at the speed I want. But watching videos of my deadlift from almost exactly a year ago is a reminder that there’s been progress. ✌🏼❤️💪🏼 #Repost @im_the_mb with @get_repost ・・・ Deadlift singles to 90% ✌🏼❤💪🏼 #deadlift #omrperformance #omrbarbellclub #4weeksout #uspa #831 #montereycounty

Today was the first day of floor presses at 110#/50kg that I felt confident enough to go without a spot (or liftoff). There was no one convenient around to ask, and I knew I wouldn’t get hurt or really stuck if I failed, but I also felt pretty certain I had it. And, despite a small grind on the last rep - I did. 😁💪 5 weeks out. #roadto135 #relentless #onerepatatime #earnednotgiven #headdowneyesforward #trusttheprocess
@jrstein18 making this post just for you since I deactivated Facebook today. Look at me trying to keep my wrists straight like I actually know a thing or two about powerlifting 😂😂😂 felt super unstable but I'll get there.
Back home, back to training 🤷🏼‍♀️
Can't fuck the program if there is no program. #MaxOutEverydayOrYoullForgetHowTo Regrann from @powerliftingmotivation - Fuck that program. Going ape shit. @zahirkhudayarov @gorilla_powerhouse Post it here 👉🏼 facebook.com/groups/powerliftingmotivation - #regrann
Down sets at 175/385 after single at 245/540. x1 6-0-0 tempo, x3, x5 low bar without belt. #BuildASquat
82.5kg mot 2.5cm kloss som en liten fjärt. #bänkyngel
Inte jättesnärtig onsdagsböjbänk idag, trots snickers i setvilan. Toppset 3x3x107.5kg i böj och 3x5x60kg i bänk. Set 2 på film på båda. Imorgon blir det både sumomark och fu-bänk med långstopp. Kan bli spännande. 😊 #styrkelyft #styrkeløft #linkopingsak #girlswhopowerlift #powerliftingwomen #gwpl #knäböj #bänkbrygga #bänkpress #powerlifting #squats #benchpress #archlife #knäböj #marklyft #styrkebyråncommunity #deadlift #friskislinköping #thisisfemalepowerlifting
Way too heavy Wednesday about to go down. #WayTooHeavyWednesday #JustDoIt #FiredTheFuckUp
✨220x5✨ Had a couple sets of these the other day after my squats. By this point my legs were basically numb 😂😂😂 • Strong, amazing, powerlifter and trainer: @kelleyfit
Morning pump 😏 feeling a little bit thicker, maybe the bulk is working? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Muscle building isn’t rocket science; you work and you eat and you rest and then you grow. Just gotta keep mixing and repeating. ✌🏻 —————— #plantpowered #lesbianswholift #womenwithmuscle #womenwholift #femalepowerlifter #powerlifter #girlswhopowerlift #thisisfemalepowerlifting #womanempowerment
First squats in a looooong time. 1st day of a new program from the amazing @its.me.courtp @aotearoastrong ✌💪 Paused squats. 3 x 10. Kept it nice and light and didn't go over 90kgs...but maaaaaaan they were hard. Still fighting my way back after being sick, but it feels bloody good to be back!
Last training session as a 'Miss' unless I train before the wedding tomorrow 😂😂😂. Deadlifts feeling strong again now 160kg x3
Someone tried out my knee sleeves tonight. Squats never looked so pretty. 40kg for 5x5. #subsubjunior
Gym me and girl me 💁🏽‍♀️ because apparently powerlifting makes you manly 🤦🏽‍♀️ #transformationtuesday #tuesday #powerlifterswhogirl #transformation
I complained about this workout for literally an hour. THEN I stupidly made a 50lb jump before this top set of 115x5. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? 115 has never felt, and moved so easy. That's fucking weird. Life is fucking weird lol. Also, big thanks to @samirae_spartanbarbell and @not_uraverage_joe for creating such an awesome community and environment at @spartanbbell. Tonight was definately one of the most fun nights I had lifting with @melodyhorbach @keilanotkayla and @hamptonpelton . #girlswholift #girlswhopowerlift #girlswithmuscle #thisisfemalepowerlifting #strongisbeautiful #strength #colorado #igfitness #igpowerlifting #powerlifting #powerliftingmotivation #health #happiness #squatbenchdead #powerlifter #fitfam #uspa #uspapower #fit #fishish #strong #gym #gains #deadlifts #squats #benchpress   #notstrongforagirljuststrong #rpowerlifting #juststrong
I feel like when people post transformation images they're usually visibly drastic. The reality is it takes a lot of time, hard work, and persistence. I think people should celebrate the little mile stones as well! So here's a 6 month progress picture. Feeling thicc & juicy in both 😜 #transformationtuesday
Sometimes I see a contest come out and think #yolo , I’m ready to train for another show or meet- I can do a lot of things now and don’t have a lot of pain anymore. Seeing the events posted for this year’s Florida’s Strongest Man definitely gave me the itch to go for it. But then I try things that remind me just how big of a deficit I still have. Definitely hard not to feel like I’ll never compete again sometimes, but just gonna keep on keepin’ on. #powerlifter #strongman #kneesurgery #aclreconstruction #9monthspostop
Well... I managed to stay out of the gym for 2 full days after my meet 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ Back at it tonight to start off a hypertrophy cycle with some AMRAP torture. @natekinard88 and I already have programming and a plan in place for my next goals 👊🏼💪🏼 ~~~~~~ ~~~~~~ @runeverythinglabs “KSCS25” 15% off @garagegymbarbell “KSCS25” 15% off ~~~~~~ ~~~~~~ #teamkinard #teamruneverything #garagegymbarbell #kscs #livelarge #neverstrongenough #kinardstrengthandconditioningsystems #STW #powerlifter #offseason #hypertrophy #amrap #powerliftingwomen #thisisfemalepowerlifting #girlswhopowerlift #delts #girlsjustwannahaveguns #allthereps #OHP #homegym #gymlife #garagegym #femalefitness #instapowerlifting #conjugatestrong #trainharderthanyesterday #shoulders
C7W3D2 2x13 at 185 and an amrap at 175 for 16 reps. High bar felt really good, like I was actually using my quads to squat, but the knurling on the bar was killing my my back. I’m not usually a pain wimp but I nearly tapped out half way through the second set bcs of how bad it felt 🙇🏽‍♀️ #thisisfemalepowerlifting
This day could have been better. But, glad to be moving, I moved. I backtracked on weights to keep form good. I do not have any competitions coming up, so there is nothing to prove. 170 3x3 #squat #squats #powerlifter #powerlifting #thisisfemalepowerlifting #powerliftingwomen #womenwhopowerlift
✨100x10 with 1 second pauses✨ “So is it 1 Mississippi that’s 1 second or is the word Mississippi 1 second in itself?” We tested and it is in fact the word itself that is 1 second long. 😂 • • Trainer: @kelleyfit
Mam zezwolenie na starty po debiutach!!! 23 lutego wystartuje w British Classic Championships 💪🏼 Jakiś czas temu postanowiłam odwiesić singlet na czas nieokreślony - razem z @lewiswalker942 uznaliśmy ze jest to konieczne dla mojego ciała, dla mojej głowy i progresu. Jednak od ostatnich zawodów dokonałam spory progres w technice martwego ciągu, wzmocniłam core, zrzuciłam trochę body fatu i odseparowałam się od „numerów” na sztandze. I tu właśnie chce wspomnieć o off-season- do czego nam to w ogóle potrzebne? Wiadomo, że starty to esencja sportu i fajnie ciagle stawać na platformie i zgarniać medale. Czasami tez federacja niefortunnie ułoży kalendarz i nie ma wyboru. Ale bez off seasonu się nie obejdzie, bo, jak to się mówi czasami trzeba zrobić dwa kroki do tylu. Nie będąc pod presja ciągłych startów możemy skupić się na technice (która często wiąże się z odjęciem ciężaru ze sztangi), na akcesoriach na które zwykle nie ma czasu, na poprawieniu słabości i, naszego podejścia do treningu / trójboju ogólnie. Off season pomaga odciąć się od naszych maksów i skupić się na procesie i rozwoju. PS. Na wideo bench PR 68 x 4 @9. Muszę robić więcej zdjęć do tego typu postów bo jedyne co mam to urywki z treningu. #progress #progres #motywacja #offseason #powerlifting #thisisfemalepowerlifting #girlswhopowerlift #girlswhosquat #girlswithmuscles #dzik #dzwigajdziewczyno #theipf #scottishpowerlifting #trojboj #lifter
Knee valgus progress!!!! 6x4 at 240 and my knees are looking and feeling so much more stable at this weight/80% of my max. Incorporating pistol squats to work on my stability is paying off. . . . . . . . . . . . #powerlifting #kneevalgus #progress #improvement #squat #squats #girlswhopowerlift #thisisfemalepowerlifting #homegym #homegymlife #unbreakablegear
Personally very happy with these sumos today, felt like things clicked into place a little more.. @castironstrength @elysiumedinburgh @athena_personaltraining - . . #countingonyousumos
Pause at knees. Board presses. Block pulls. Can anyone guess what program I am running? . . . Oh and since it’s @bodyperformancecoach birthday I’m wearing him on my arse. #happybirthdayonmyarse
@rileypresnell finishing up some cambered bar squatting from last night with a really smooth 340 single. Yes, she had more in the tank. But we also have no reason to push heavy, hard singles right now. This was also a 10 pound PR. Her strength has come a long way in a short amount of time. The main goal is to push work sets in a specific range, build work capacity, and set her up to be as strong as possible on meet day. I’m a firm believer that not every training session needs to leave you borderline crippled. It may not be the best thing for your gram popularity...but it’ll set you up for a good meet. And help you remain in the sport for longer. Riley is squatting up into the high 300’s, benching well into the 200’s, and pulling in the mid 400’s going into this meet preparation phase. I’m excited to see what we can put together. Did I mention this will also be her first meet?
Bench feeling smoother, arch getting bigger, leg drive is happening. Getting better at benching is making me feel like a real powerlifter @ariantank #girlswhosuckatbench #benchpress #bench #usapl #squatsandscience #scientistswhopowerlift #thisisfemalepowerlifting
And just like that 165, my oldax which I only ever hit 1 time in the gym, has become a number I can rep. It wasn't pretty. But I did it! ... After my surgery I was told I'd lose the ability to bench press. Big THANKS to @berserkr_strength @mfswede @emery_mullen @therangersteve and everyone who has helped and encouraged me. From rehab work to easing me back into training, I couldn't have done this without a village behind me. 💙💙💙 ... #iam1stphorm #1stphorm #neversettle #nextlevelshit #legionofboom #legionnaire #wedothework #duespaid #taketwofitnessapparel #taketwofitness #gwpl #girlswholift #powerlifter #thisisfemalepowerlifting #girlswholift #s2faction #s2factionistas #brca #brca2positive #brightpink #breastcancer #cancersucks #girlswholift #powerlifter #taketwofitness #masectomy #doublemasectomy #breastreconstruction #brca2
My squat session was nothing fancy today. After a week off and being sick isn't the best recipe for a solid morning in the gym. But even the worst squats are better than the ones that don't happen. #fitfam #Fitness #Progress #Squats #SquatRack #powerlifting #womenwholift #girlswholift #girlswhopowerlift #girlswithtattoos #AssToGrass #TrainYourAssOff #ThisIsFemalePowerlifting #GettingStrongAsFuck
2016 --> 2017 --> 2018 -------- Today’s lesson: gainz and clothing are directly inverse 🤓 -------- In all seriousness, I'm really proud of what I've achieved over the past 2 years, athletically, physically and mentally. Some bits have been utter shite, but I wouldn't change a thing, because it's made me a better person 💕 -------- Programming: @tdmcgurl_pt Witty caption: @lucyp0203
Final 3x5 squat session of the cycle and everything is moving smoothly and feeling strong. Just as it should be for 6 weeks out from my next comp. Thanks @strength.university and @roonstagram for creeping. #FuckWeightCuts #EmbracingThe84Class
I've been laying on the couch for half an hour doing nothing but drinking coffee and listening to music. I almost decided to sleep in this morning because I didn't *need* to wake up early to get anything done. I could have taken my coffee with me in the car and laid in bed longer. But I thought about this time that I have to myself before the day starts. This time before I get swept away in the stress of being an adult. This time I have to just sit and think about life. I enjoy this time. Even if I'm not gonna do anything with my morning but sit and drink coffee, just getting out of bed is so significant to me. Some days, depression grips my mind and makes just getting out of bed a huge task. Getting out of bed every morning feels like a small victory over depression. Laying in bed or sleeping in feels like giving depression a way in. I struggle to find the balance between working hard and taking the time I need to relax, rest, and recover. I've been told I would never make anything of myself. I've had people look down on me for struggling to do simple things that don't seem so simple when depression gets ahold of my mind. I have fallen victim to thinking that if I just work myself to the point of exhaustion that it somehow proves my worth and shows people that I'm capable of doing things. But that road only ever leaves me overwhelmed and exhausted and it makes life harder than it really should be. I feel guilty taking time for myself sometimes because I feel like I should be making the most of my time. But am I really making the most of my time if I don't give myself a break? So I get out of bed early, even when I don't need to, so that I can have this therapeutic time with my coffee. Getting out of bed is enough to make me feel like I'm doing something productive, while sitting on the couch doing nothing but drinking my coffee gives me the pause I need in my life. I read in a book once that you can't fill anyone's well if your own well is empty. It feels good to work hard and accomplish things. But it's crucial to make time to take it easy too. Relax, rest, recover. Life is hard. Don't make it harder by running yourself into the ground ❤️
Falling back in love with lifting after a couple months off is pretty damn easy when you have an awesome coach @austynryan @apex.power and training out of a pretty dope gym @24sevenfamilygym 5x3 at #130 #potatoeswholift #baconandbarbells #lululemon #apexpower #powerlifting #girlswholift
Your favourite potato is back in her natural happy habitat 😊😊
Sunday funday with 3x7 at 205 and a hot lil 120 for a RPE 7 single 🙃🙃
Starting to learn that lifting is just as much of a physical challenge as it is a mental game. Finally got up the courage to try 200lbs for a shady single. Shoutout to @jayanderson_92 for being the hype man of the night. #baconandbarbells #potatoeswholift #suckless
Snappy lil 230lb pull for 8RPE! Feeling pretttti Gucci after cutting 12lbs so far thanks to @apex.power
