Lately, bulgarian split squats have been my favorite leg exercise. There are so many variations of this movement: dumbbells in hands, dumbbell in goblet position, barbell in front squat position, etc. They’re amazing for overall leg development.

Beyond blessed to have this beautiful girl in my life!

It has been raining every day for about the past two weeks, so we took full advantage of the beautiful day we had on Sunday and headed outside for a nice recovery workout featuring body weight movements and bands.

From #MaxEffortMonday yesterday.
William: 305 (+band tension) double-banded conventional deadlift
Aislinn: 235 sumo deadlift from a deficit
We hope everyone had a Happy Memorial Day, honoring those who have sacrificed themselves for our freedom ❤️🇺🇸

Incorporating different squat variations into your training is so important!

Yesterday we finally got to train together for the first time in months. 💪🏼 Our schedules are so busy and different that we can never seem to make it to the gym at the same time. The plus side of not training together every day is that seeing each other’s progress seems all the more drastic. I mean look at that back 😍

Happy 24th birthday to this amazing guy! Today also happens to be the day we went on our first date THREE years ago. March 11 is such a special day. 💓

My face when William says, "this is great, but let's hook a band up to it." 😂

Banded deadlifts are excellent for developing speed throughout the entire range of motion. As the bar moves farther from the ground there is more accommodating resistance so it gets heavier. These are great to teach you how to put max force through the whole lift.

Today I sumo deadlifted 255. Two weeks ago I attempted to sumo deadlift my conventional deadlift PR of 245 and it wasn't happening. Mentally, I wasn't there. If there's one thing I've learned from lifting, it's that lot of times we first have to overcome mental barriers before we can overcome the physical ones, and that's why I chose not to crop this video. As you can see, I made two attempts to lift this before I actually did. 225 had come easy, as did 245, but when I first went to pick up that 255 I realized, "dang this is heavy." So I stepped away and did something that if you don't do, I encourage you to try: I imagined myself lifting the weight. I got myself there mentally, and did it. I'm so excited, y'all!!

These are great for maintaining an upright posture in a conventional deadlift. They're also a heck of a trap builder.

A recent goal I set for myself is to get a 300 lb. squat and deadlift. I'm a full-time college student involved in research and I work part-time. Some days I don't have time to go to the gym so you know what I do? I make time. You can have results or excuses. Not both. What are some of your goals?
