All day I keep thinking about how I’d rather be in San Diego for the Kern US Open, the biggest Powerlifting meet in the world to support my friend @partywitrj and watch him just kill it. Been planning on going for months but things didn’t turn out as I expected. Good luck to RJ and @tiny_n_tuff
Long day on the bench today, warmed up to my working sets starting at 215x3, then 3sets of 225x3 (shown). Spotter @mikeebarboza The finished off with 185x10 and 3sets of 135x15 followed by accessories. My next will be Dan Kose FitExpo ✅✅✅ #uspapower #usopen #KERNUSOPEN #powerlifting #rawpowerlifting #powerliftingph #benchpress #fitover50 #fitness #fitlifestyle #sanjosefitexpo #eastbaypowerdivision #maxmusclehayward

There is a thin line between success and failure, between winning and losing. Sometimes it’s painfully obvious, sometimes it’s an official that decides. People will judge, but in the end it's the athlete himself who becomes his own worst critic.❌ #gymfail or is it? Can’t say I #nailedit but I know I’ve done higher before. #iffirstyoudontsucceedtryagain #boxjumps #boxjump #boxjumpfail #explosiveness #explosivenesstraining #fitness #fitover50 #fitlife #powerlifting #powerliftingph #uspapower #maxmusclehayward #clubsportfremont #accessorymovements

I’d consider myself an experienced lifter, but believe it or not this is my first try at Pendlay Row with overhand grip. I understand my back should be flat and parallel to the ground so I had to stand on a plate to get full extension of my arms. Still working on the form so... I did 4x10 as an accessory. My gym just got new Eleiko plates. #pendlayrows #bentoverrows #bentrow #uspapower #powerbuilder #powerlifting #maxmusclehayward #fitness #fitlifestyle #fitover50 #backworkout #powerliftingph #eleiko

Today’s Boosted Board Group Ride from B8ta San Francisco. Great weather for a ride in the city today with the guys. Bombing down Gough Street was fun. Got to test ride Boosted’s new Mini S, now I want one. Really liking that #kicktail on the Mini S. #boosted #boostedsf #boostedboards #boostedmini #b8ta #b8tasf #esk8squad #eskate #electricskateboard @stephanye_west @gidsnicapoo

Powerlifting is a sport of relativity, the words strong and heavy are relative to the weight class and age category of the individual lifter. That said, it’s just another day in the gym and I’m trying to lift “heavy” so I can get “strong”. These are my last three sets ~325lbs@60kgbodyweight. #powerlifting #powerbuilder #uspapower #maxmusclehayward #pioneerbelts #hammerstrength #platformready #fitover50 #deadliftday #deadlifts #relativity #clubsportfremont

Working on my bench at CSA Dublin. Here are my last two sets trying to find that 5rep max. Handoff by @partywitrj right before he squatted 600lbs 😵 #powerlifting #powerbuilder #uspapower #benchpress #fitover50 #chestday #5rm Thanks @jesseburdick

There are the Calves and the Calves not. Genetic plays a part, but there is so much you can change with the WILL and KNOWLEDGE. One summer at a BBQ a NPI competitor asked me how I got my calves to grow. I told him that at my height I’ve spent a lifetime tiptoeing. I only work calves once every other year 😂 #legs #legday #calves #calvesworkout #uspapower #powerlifting #powerliftingph #tiptoeing #clubsportfremont #maxmusclehayward #calvesmuscles #fitover50 #fitnesslife #calfworkout #calfraises #followme

#tbt Throw Back Thursday to the first year I started Powerlifting, I visited Poe’s Gym in Nashville TN and got some words of wisdom from the Man himself Matt Poe. We talked about the role of Genetics and Diminishing Returns on muscle gains. For Powerlifters and Strongman competitors a visit to Poe’s Gym is an absolute must when you’re in Nashville TN. Where old school iron meets Southern hospitality- heavy Metal is always playing there. 🎶🎶 #powerlifting #uspapower #poesgym @poesgym #deadlift #squats #nashville #nashvillegyms #eastbaypowerdivision #powerliftingwatch #pioneerbelts #sbdkneesleeves #fitover50 #powerliftingph #slayercover #followme

Back at my main gym after a month. Been visiting different gyms lately and then the meet and recovery. It’s good to be back in the grind. After warmup, 3 working sets with 6 reps each. ✅✅✅ #powerlifting #uspapower #deadlifts #deadliftday #entersandman #clubsportfremont #matsumotoshaveice #pioneerbelts #eastbaypowerdivision #fitover50 #fitness #fitlife #maxmusclehayward #powerliftingph #powerliftingwatch

Video by @kamakanani0keanuenue from the Santa Cruz Open. As always coach @partywitrj got my back. Kamaka did an awesome job making the clip but IG removed my first post of it because of music copyright infringement. So I had to change the track, sorry bro. As a former Record Producer, I get it. Record labels and Producers submit mechanical masters to Gracenote, BDS, and ASCAP to protect their intellectual properties and to get paid. Original scores or remixes are one way to get around it. That said, here are The Fugees remixed by E.Y Beats 🔈 Let see if this gets past the automated ears. ⚪️⚪️⚪️ #uspapower #powerlifting #squat #bench #deadlift #squatbenchdeadlift #uspamasters #santacruzstrength #maxmusclehayward #pioneerbelts #sbdkneesleeves #eastbaypowerdivision
