Holly Stark  She is the strong cup of black coffee in a world that is drunk on the cheap wine of shallow love 🌸

After 4 years, I really don’t have the words. Damn... Sabrina I am beyond proud of you! Have living together for 3 years and nearly 9 years of friendship I couldn’t be be more proud of you. Congratulations on graduating and on finding an adult job before you even have your diploma in hand. It’s been a wild ride with you by my side and it will be sad moving into my next apartment without you! I have watched you grow into a beautiful, responsible, intelligent, authentic, and unique women and can’t wait to watch you continue to thrive! Good luck at your first day of work on Monday! Keep climbing your mountain babe, this is only the beginning! I love you 💕

Here’s to strong women! Happy Mother’s Day! 🌸

Who foolishly let us be in charge of teaching a class? Thanks for the laughs guys, I can’t wait for what next year holds. Good luck Mike as you become a real adult! Thanks @joepowell28 for bringing us together! What a semester 💪🏼🔥

Yesterday was the day. My life has completely revolved around powerlifting for the past 3 months!
A heartfelt thank you to my fantastic coach for not only programming for me, but for truly being my life person. You picked me up when I wasn’t able to, you made me stronger than I ever thought I would be. I know that I drive you crazy most days including yesterday, you have and continue to put so much work into me to make me the best that I can be. Thank you to my friends who have supported me while I disappeared from their lives to prep and for showing up to cheer me on yesterday. @burdi1me you rocked it and couldn’t be more proud to compete with you! Thank you to my family for driving all the way up here to watch me lift and for their continued patience while I rarely came home this semester.

When referring to results I left generally disappointed. I went 7/9. Overall squats went awesome and I couldn’t have asked for more. Bench was real funky and I missed my second attempt. My deadlift has been an issue for months and it showed today on the platform and I finished with a pull 12.5 lbs less than my PR.
Overall I weighed in at 77kg, totaled a PR, took first in the junior and second in the open 84kg class.
Squat: 325 lb / 147.5 kg
Bench: 149 lb / 67.5 kg
Deadlift: 330 lb / 150 kg
Total: 804
Winning a class is cool, but at the end of the day powerlifting is a competition between your old self and the self you create through training. Every time I prep and compete I learn something new about myself, this one was one hell of a learning experience. State championship is in December, and I have already got training on my mind. On to the next one.. never strong enough 💪🏼 #USAPL #girlswhopowerlift

Finally... 300 for a relatively smooth double. 20lb PR for my last real heavy day. 3 weeks out and feeling ready 💪🏼💥#USAPL #SpringBarbellum

51 never looked so beautiful! Happy birthday mom💕

I’m a little late, but happy 22nd birthday to one of my best friends! Thanks for all the memories! Stay unique KJ, so much love for you 💜🍾

Is national dog day just a validated excuse to show the world how you think you have the cutest doggo ever?

Things are finally starting to fall into place. Loving the transition to low bar. 5x3@265 today, AMRAP@7 (shown). I probably should have taken one more rep after looking at looking at this video. 6 weeks out and very excited for that platform! Spring barbellum here I come 😜✊🏼 #USAPL #DepthCheck

Thriving 💚

Anyone that knows me well knows how much I talk about how incredible my mom is. Today she graduated from the Executive MBA program at MSU. I wasn’t sure how she was going to do it, I’m not sure that she knew either. While maintaining a full time job, and relationship with her family, she finished in less than two years with her second masters degree (with honors). This is not the top, this is not the peek. There is more exciting and better things to come in her life! Her passion for her work inspires me. I love you mom, keep climbing your mountain! 💕congrats grad! #gogreengowhite 💚
