Early behind the neck press (Colored, 300 B.C.)

I’m pink and sitting on rock. Call me Patrick.

My friend @_kailagrace put this awesome video together of my meet. This came out so cool, thank you Kaila!

Hiked up Sleeping Giant with this sleeping beauty. (Seriously, she always sleeps in 😂)

Hawaii scenery is A-1

Another big milestone for me, the 314 lb/142.5kg bench. This sucker was months of work in advance as well. I’ve always been able to arch, but wasn’t able to do so consistently. My man @roadtorecords hit me with some awesome cues at bench press nationals and it’s been linear from there. Also, my lovely lady @swoleesi was able to help me learn to grind through a short ROM by flicking my wrists if necessary. 145 may have been there on the day but I was still so thrilled to do this to comp. standards on the day. Thanks for a great liftoff @kung_fu_kenny_lifts.
The GOAT @evanchaffey peaked me perfectly.

My first 501 squat. This meant a lot. After years of battling knee injury, I really thought this milestone would never be possible. Also 5 spotters is weird.

Today was pretty much perfect.
Well, 7/9, 42.5kg PR total and winning perfect. But honestly, missing two deadlifts on balance isn’t the worst thing (waddup @hamstringpapi) I first want to thank my coach, THE GOAT, Mr. @evanchaffey, for dealing with all my neuroticism through prep. You made me believe I can be strong again, which I never thought possible. Next, to @nunez3dmj for helping me become a lean, mean, lifting machine. @team3dmj for life.
Next, thank you to all of my athletes and fellow coaches @thestrengthathlete. @bryce_tsa @hani_tsa @eric_tsa Your support and graciousness through prep means the world.
Next, @alex_barbellmedicine, thank you for the superb gameday coaching. @sbaker9412 @_kailagrace @trav_cope thank you for coming to support me. @jill_stanek and my fam too. ❤️
Last and most importantly thank you to my supportive, beautiful girlfriend @swoleesi for constantly telling me I could do it and being patient through my 3+ hour sessions. Opens here I come!

220kg/484lbs for an all time PR squat. This is the one I’m the most excited about it. 1 week out!

Happy birthday to this little borker. Ted is two today ❤️

3 plates...well sort of. 142.5kg/314lbs x1 @8.5 for another all time PR.
Need to pause this just a hair longer next week and I’ll be satisfied.
