Limlim  πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Mommy of 3 🌘πŸ₯πŸ‘©πŸ½β€βš•οΈICU RN, BSN πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ‘΅πŸ½ USPA 82.5kg Classic Raw πŸ₯‡Coach/Programming: @simmons_strength ☠️ Gym: @ironmongersgym

Trying to be better with accessories this off season. Boo thang @xavier_romeroelitepl showed me how to do these seal rows on this contraption (Cuz I guess I did the first set wrong and wasn’t fwd enough) & I’m still hella short even at the shortest foot setting πŸ™‚Feet up or super tippy toes it is! I’m trying Coach @simmons_strength! πŸ˜…

I am humbled by the incline bench πŸ˜‚ I don’t think I’ve done these since my 24h days 3+ years ago! The programmed 120 was NOT happening, so I dropped it to 95 so I could finish all the reps. Definitely room for improvement on these! πŸ˜… @simmons_strength @xavier_romeroelitepl

Yeeee! Off season programming started today πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Crazy to me that I did 140 for 3x10! 🀩 Set 1 got too wobbly by the end of the set, so I focused more on staying tight and controlled the last sets & it was much better! @xavier_romeroelitepl

Made it back in today πŸ† 225 for 4 triples. Tried to focus on this thing called bracing for this thing called core πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Feels good to be starting off season squats with 2 plates. Kinda proud of my gainz ☺️ The end.

1.5 weeks off since the meet and I decided it’s about time to get back in @ironmongersgym πŸ‘΅πŸ½ My goal for today was to work up to 135 and did 4x5 just cuz. Then I was completely lost on what to do next πŸ˜‚ Accessories it is since I skipped it all during SD Fit Expo prep 😬 Still PR’d on bench tho 😝 The end.

*Long post alert* Since I’m still recovering from the SD Fit Expo, here’s a little throwback. My very first meet Smash Weight Open 2016 in honor of my dad in his fight against stage 4 brain cancer (who you can hear in my deads video 😍) & for my grandpa who passed earlier that year, to this past Saturday at the San Diego Fit Expo 2018:
Squat 259 ⏭ 325
Bench 143 ⏭ 192
Deads 292 ⏭ 347
My love @xavier_romeroelitepl reminded me how far I’ve come in these two, going on three, years. Yes, things have changed like raw to classic raw, high bar to low bar, medium grip to wide grip, 165 to 148 to 181, but my ambition and hard work (and my coach @simmons_strength πŸ˜‰) remains the same. I’m continually trying to be the strongest I can be to improve my own personal bests. Now if my body would just cooperate that would be great! Lol πŸ‘΅πŸ½β™ΏοΈ This is the first time I haven’t been itching to get back in the gym in the week post meet. Tbh, I’m still beat! But, my body needs the rest, so that’s what it’s gonna get this week cuz I want to last a while in this sport. But don’t you worry, my off season training vids will return next week to blow up your feeds πŸ™‚ And if you made it this far, you da real MVP βœŠπŸ½πŸ’œ

Aaaaand that’s a wrap with the first San Diego Fit Expo! #NorthCountysStrongestGym @ironmongersgym dominated! So proud of all the Iron Mongers athletes & Iron Mongers family that came to support! Everyone put in that work and it showed! So now the question is.... Which meet are we going to dominate next?? πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏽😈

Here are all my attempts from yesterday. I posted the wrong squat (my opener) & deadlift typo for deads (it was 347 not 247) in my recap πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ I had so many videos and I was tired πŸ˜… Anyways, here it is:
Squat: 308βœ”οΈ, 325βœ”οΈ, 352 ❌; Bench 176βœ”οΈ, 187βœ”οΈ, 192βœ”οΈ; Deads 303βœ”οΈ, 330βœ”οΈ, 347βœ”οΈ! Looking forward to my long off season now! Time to watch our beasts @meathead_adam & @muchomalo_oside kill it today!! πŸ’ͺ🏽😈

Thank you to my family, BFFs & boyfriend that ALWAYS supports me in this sport! Even tho it may be boring to them they always come and show me love! Especially my daughter who made it known who she was cheering for πŸ˜‚ And again thank you to my coach @simmons_strength & the rest of the #IronMongers fam that came to support & those that supported/shouted out through text, IG stories and DMs. I shared the platform with so many strong ladies! Congratulations to all!! πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’œ

Here it is! Went 8/9 and PR’d on all lifts and finished with a 865 total, a 44lb PR. I was a little disappointed with squats going 2/3, as always, but finished with a speedy 325.2lbs, and I still PR’d 11lbs so I can’t be mad at that. (Edit* Oops.. my opener is shown πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ)
Bench I went 3/3 finishing with 192.9lbs, an 11lb PR. 200lb Bench coming soon! Deads I went 3/3 as well and finished with 347.2 (Edit* Oops again.. video typo not 247.2 πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ), a 22lb PR. I’m gonna leave back to meets for the youngins cuz I oooweee... I’m beat! Mama needs a break! I had a great meet prep and it came together beautifully on meet day, all thanks to my coach @simmons_strength! Thank you for your patience and expertise in dealing with my submaster ass πŸ˜‚ Also a special thank you to my #IronMongirls @powerfully_in_red @farahsfitness @kkaymmartinezz & @alyftssalot that supported me during prep and on game day with all the encouragement, positivity, loading and unloading weights & changing rack heights in the warm up room! Your team efforts definitely don’t go unnoticed & I appreciate you πŸ’œ Now it’s time for a long off season to build a better foundation for my next PL goals πŸ’ͺ🏽😈

We made it, fam! Weigh ins done! Time to grub then it’s go time tmw!! πŸ’ͺ🏽😈 #IronMongirls #IronMongersGym #NorthCountysStrongestGym
