Demetri says hi and apologizes for all of his dads training videos following your feed. He’s been so sweet and thoughtful lately! Too bad he doesn’t have any training videos of his own 🤔

GM! PR 1ct pause triple at 190kg @8. Not sure how much longer I can sustain this run, but this strategy seems to be working for now! Going for triples @9 next week- got a planned deload given that I’ll likely be FRIED post-meet-directing. #goodmorning #gm #obama #barack #yeswecan #love #usapl #powerlifting #lift #brooklyn #strength #deadlift #squat #bench #squats #nsca

GM. 217.5kg for my 1@8, trying to work on exploding off the floor as hard as possible 🌋. Weird thought- I generally listen to happy / hype music when I squat and bench, and tend to have a solid handle of my proprioception. That tends to f me over when I do deads. I try to listen to sadder songs to invoke more emotion to my single, primarily to gain that speed I so desperately need off the floor. I recognize that this may impose higher fatigue on me than necessary, but does anyone out there tend to listen to different music / have different thoughts depending on the movement they’re doing (of the big three)? #usapl #strength #fitness #love #brooklyn #nyc #community #squats #bench #deadlift #sbd #powerlifting

130kg for 1@8 smoother than the 127.5 last week. Now on to do copious volume work with only 20m left before my privates show up. 🌭😈🥝 #usapl #strength #brooklyn #love #fitness #benchpress #powerlifting #squats #deadlift #brooklyn #nyc

190x4 @ 8.5 (rep PR). Admittedly I got hyped for this set but it wasn’t anything too fatiguing (back off sets will be the big indicator of this lmao). I’m incredibly happy with this- 190 was my 3@9 during peaking before regionals!

GM. Cold is clearing, gonna have a much-needed night in with @feedme_tellmeimbeefy, and I’m benching with the homies @nthomas90 @croninstrength @restingliftface @mattressrob. Hitting 120x4 @8 for a 1” board Press. #benchpress #deadlift #squat #usapl #powerlifting #fitness #nyc #brooklyn #love #saturday

Full blown cold got me feeling weak AF 😂. This felt @8 even though the speed was pretty solid. Individual differences certainly apply here, but when feeling under the weather, it’s important to prioritize RPE over progressions, especially when you’re more than 8 weeks out from comp. remember, while RPE is an excellent tool to progress your numbers, it is also a safeguard against me being a total dumbass. It is important to remain pragmatic and focus on the macro-perspective: get the training “effect” in, work on your technique, get the volume needed to not regress further, and shake it off and focus on recovery more than the “loss”. Ultimately, the only singular performance that truly ever matters is on the platform. #strength #usapl #powerlifting #love #brooklyn #nyc #love #fitness #squats #bench #deadlift #powerlifter #lift

125kg / 275lbs for 1@8ish. Very good starting point for me as I go into the polarized phase of my programming. Hoping to touch 137.5 in training prior to sbwc. Late night benching with the homies @squatsinthecurlrack @nthomas90 after coachin’. Gotta get this work in! #usapl #strength #fitness #love #benchpress #deadlift #squat #brooklyn #latergram #nyc #crownheights #powerlifting

210kg / 462lbs for 1@8. Staying conservative since this is the first week implementing singles back into my program. Back-offs are 3x3. The catback experiment has already died- for some reason I feel significantly weaker, so I’m not entirely sure how @mattressrob does it. In utter awe and respect homie. With @mattressrob @forbes.huang and @kevintran410 on the squad, I’m just trying not to be the worst 74kg 😂🌭 #strength #usapl #powerlifting #deadlift #love #brooklyn #nyc #sotu @barackobama #obama #fitness #squats #bench

Squattin’ on my own this afternoon. GM. 185kg / 407lbs for 4@8.5. Mental fatigue can’t be much higher than it currently is atm, so I’m thankful I can progress this from last week. Small tip: when working with a coach (in person or online), it’s important to let them know about acutely-elevated levels of stress. This will mask your ability to display fitness, and needs to be managed just as carefully as macros, sleep, and adherence variables. Since I’m programming for myself, I unfortunately don’t have the benefit of this, but I’m committed to playing it smart and focusing on the macro-perspective since ultimately my career as an athlete is a marathon, not a sprint. #fitness #love #usapl #powerlifting #squats #squat #gm #74kg #strength #brooklyn #nyc #nsca

Caught a pump for the first time in forever and I couldn’t waste the precious opportunity of getting out-angled, and frankly, out-gunned, by these two studs. @nthomas90 @markluehringjones #powerlifting #bulking #lol #strength #usapl #cats #strength #74kg #proudcoach #bros #love
