Mattie Rogers 🍰  Team USA Weightlifting (69/71kg)🇺🇸 23. FL //You must sacrifice yourself in order to achieve greatness\\

Lifts from the floor, lifts from the floor!!! Building every single day & I’m so excited to be working my way back to regular training/percentages. Perks of taking time to let things heal: the 9 million hours of accessory/grunt work/rehab/the most tedious work possible has made me feel STABLE & lower percentages allows for so much more focus on technical aspects & refining and fine tuning movements is one of my favorite things about this sport.

Back & sweatier than ever. Body is healing, mind is antsy to get into heavier things. Nothing reminds you to be grateful for a healthy body & good training more than having to take a step back to let things heal. Spent HOURS AND HOURS (...and hours) rehabbing and giving extra attention to the small things these last few weeks & I can already feel it will pay off in a big way. Hungry & ready for what’s coming, but mostly excited to be able to just PUSH.

Thank you to those who have been working with me day in and day out. I don’t want to name names because I’m sure I’ll forget some because there are so many of you, but you know who you are & I am extremely grateful for all of you.

I really tried my best ok -

We’re on todays @romwod aaaaaaandddd Sean barely survives the poses in a crop top & I pretty much lose it :,) (sorry @theryryschultz) Link in bio to sign up.

Massage, recovery, warm up and now a super cool long haul flight feature for any long travel to help with blood flow. Can be a road trip, long day of sitting, flights of just any time you’re sitting for a long period of time. I’m really excited to try it out on next long travel day! Link in bio. @mypowerdot

My best belt squat solution with set up and set down included for your enjoyment. It’s not very graceful at all, but it’s effective!! (trust me I’ve tried every way aside from the belt squat machine because I’m not buying one) I don’t like holding on to anything because it completely changes the feel (also I swear I’m not swimming idk what arms are doing), but the @roguefitness loading pin worked really well! Since my legs are 20’ long and my stance is on the wider side, I could use 35# plates on the pin with room to add plenty more. 8’s with a slight tempo, super setted with whatever quad pumper I feel like doing that day on intervals + a burnout today. -

I’ve been giving some SI/low back issues their sweet, sweet time to heal from the damn 140 jerk/knee THROUGH the floor since I have the time. We tried to train through for a week to compete at Nationals, but decided to take this route instead. Usually it’s “feel GOOD ENOUGH to survive training or a comp” when you tweak something, but I want to take time and address the lil things so I feel 100%. Been doing a lot of these, body building (it’s SHOWING) & A TON of other not so exciting things. Still training 8 sessions a week & they’re actually even longer than my regular sessions, but most of them are find a dark corner and GET TO WORK. We don’t have any machines in our gym, so it’s been fun getting creative making my own “machines” & doing things I’ve never done.

My horn can pierce the sky

Really can’t wait to see this one again soon. (140kg/308lbs) 📸: @19stgram

From cutting to 63 (lol I’m 5’7”), gaining to 69, cutting to 69, gaining back to 69 again bc life, gaining to 71 and now still trying to gain past 71 (a solid 4kg heavier than this time last year), @rpstrength has been with me through it all. 4(?) years strong working together now & I just have to show them a lil appreciation! I’ve been bigger, I’ve been smaller, I’ve definitely changed shapes multiple times, been fluffy, been lean, been SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN, but performance is always the goal & the body is a result of that. I tried the new RP app which changed my numbers a bit, so I’m enjoying playing the fun puzzle game again of what fits into each meal. “MATTIE10” saves you on basically everything they have to offer & gives you 6 month access to the app for super discount (I 10/10 recommend trying the app if you already work with them and haven’t yet too). No fucking filters, just some real nice lighting in Guatemala :)

I’ve taken the last week to stay away from most social media. With this many eyes on me, it’s to the point where I could have a great day or a terrible day & get shit on regardless. And I know now that I have to understand & accept that. I’ve read some of the worst things that have ever been said about me this last week. All from people who have never met me. Don’t know a thing about me except for what they see on stage. The biggest suggestion is “oh don’t listen to the haters, so many people support you”, but when the hate is so strong and attacks you on so many personal levels, it’s impossible to ignore. I won’t pretend that it doesn’t suck that the weightlifting community has turned into some disgusting, hateful collection of people. Like it’s a fun game of who can come up with the most hurtful things to say to get some likes and attention. When this is such a beautiful and empowering sport that has helped and continues to help so many people in so many ways. “Acknowledging them will only make it worse”, fine. Let it be worse for now, so hopefully the next person under this much attention and scrutiny in the weightlifting world won’t experience these same things. There has never been this much exposure of our small, non mainstream sport. It’s growing, & not in the best direction. I was able to make this sport my career because I loved it, I worked at it & I dedicate myself and all my time and energy to it daily. I made a life for myself from this sport. And to almost resent it because of some people I don’t even know? Absolutely not. You’re not taking away the reason I am here. My love for this sport. So the biggest fuck you to those trying their best to tear me apart and the biggest THANK YOU to those who support myself and others chasing their dreams day in and day out. YOU are the people who matter. Here’s a vid of me loving what I do from a few weeks ago, hitting my first ever 300lb clean and jerk. I live to train. I live for the work & the tiniest of improvements. I live to be on stage to do my best & show what I work for, “good enough” or not. If you’re one of those people, I hope this really bothers you. Make a change. Be fucking nicer to people.

I wanted to wait until the dust (& my stomach) settled a little before putting my thoughts on social media. Am I proud of my Pan Am results? No, of course not. Am I proud of MYSELF for the fight and effort I gave? Absolutely. You can’t predict missing lifts. You can’t predict getting sick on comp day. You could have the best preparations and still fall short, or the worst preparations and completely surprise yourself. I can honestly say I have everything I had on my clean and jerks. I would have never guessed I’d have Pyrros holding my head while I puked between each warm up (I cannot thank you enough Pyrros). But no one sees that on stage. No one cares for that matter. I could have never guessed I’d have missed attempts I’d have to try and make up for. My body wanted to scratch my clean and jerks. My brain would never let that happen. I’m proud of myself for getting my shit together and going for my attempts with everything I had. For holding my fucking vomit in and putting 140kg on the bar. A number I’ve never touched. And it was damn close. We could have taken a safe jump to secure a 240+ total, but we didn’t. We went for it. And it’s still a 9kg total increase from last years Pan Ams. For those of you attacking me on every possible level, including those not even weightlifting related, I hope you feel good. I hope it gives you the satisfaction you’re looking for. “Everyone has bad days”, except when you have this many eyes on you & this many people rooting against you, a single bad day gets thrown in your face over and over. This does nothing but prove to me that I am stronger. I am capable of numbers I haven’t even tried yet. One lift away from doing something great on my worst day, so what happens on my best day? I look forward to finding out. Grit. 🎥: @hookgrip
