By far my favorite picture from the #cetcusopen. This was after my third #squat of 733. #elitefts #powerlifting

Easing back into training with 500x8 on #beltless #squats and 625x2x5 followed by 585x10 on #sumodeadlift, plus an #abworkout on my YouTube channel. Only clips of each because Instagram won't let me do the multiple post thing. Excited to be pulling sumo again without #kneepain thanks to @kinetixbodyscience and to have not lost much #strength despite not having done the #movement in six months ๐Ÿ˜ณ#powerlifting #elitefts

MEET REPORT LINK IN BIO! Some awesome footage of the #usopen from @instabanger_productions ๐Ÿ˜Ž These are my best lifts from the meet: 733 #squat, 396 #benchpress, and 755 #deadlift. I had an incredible experience over the weekend and I'm excited to get more comfortable with #kneewraps, rehab my #pecs, and work back into #sumodeadlift ๐Ÿ’ช@elitefts also has a sale on my new #ebook, Think Strong, which explains the #strategy I used for my #meetprep training, so check it out if you're interested!

MEET REPORT LINK IN BIO I've been waiting to share some of my #workoutmotivation videos from #meetprep, and this 772 double is my favorite. Whenever my #confidence started to waver in the last couple of weeks, I'd rewatch it and remind myself that I could #deadlift whatever I'd need to for the win. @staciardison first suggested that I keep a record of #smallwins like this one, because they can be a great source of #inspiration whenever you need a quick boost. I definitely encourage everyone to try the same and see if it helps you improve your own training #consistency! #teamelitefts #elitefts

I had an awesome time at the #cetcusopen yesterday. It was an honor to meet and compete with @bilbo_swaggins181 @hollywood_hobz and all the other great lifters and even though it wasn't by best performance, I'm proud of the win and the improvements in my #mentalgame that I've made over the past year. I'll have a detailed meet writeup and tons of #thankyous on @elitefts tomorrow, but for now you can check out the #recap @vintagestrong and I did on my YouTube channel and watch this miss from my last #deadlift. Really, really wanted that 800 pull but it just wasn't there after a long competition. And huge #congrats to my teammate @joesullivanpowerlifter who put up a phenomenal performance in the 220s and took home second overall at 23 years old ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช #powerlifting #teamelitefts

NEW LINK IN BIO ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Training for the #cetcusopen is done. Here's some #lightweight work from the past week: #deadlifts, #beltless #sleeveless #pausesquats, and a variation on #bodyweight rows with the @trxtraining system. I'm not a fast lifter in general - I prefer #thegrind - but I'm glad my#lockout is looking speedy on my pulls! If you're interested in my #meetprep in general, I have TWO new articles on @elitefts today about both the physical and #mentalgame, so check them out, and check out my new ebook, #thinkstrong! #powerbuilding #speedkills

Here's a #throwbackthursday to #beltless #deadlifts from the very beginning of my #meetprep. I've worked a LOT this cycle on my #mentalgame, which held me back at my last couple of meets, and I'm excited to see the #payoff in ten days in San Diego. It's been a process, but I'm proud of myself for having done it. I'll be sharing some of what I've done in my coaching log at @elitefts, and I'd love to hear some suggestions for other topics y'all would like to read ๐Ÿ‘#powerlifting #cetcusopen #elitefts

Gotta say this #teaser for the #highdefinition livestream of the #cetcusopen is pretty sweet ๐Ÿ˜ฌ You can check it out at cetcusopen.com/livestream, I'll be lifting on April 16 ๐Ÿ‘

Here's a #throwback to the last heavy #squatworkout before my last meet. For that prep I focused on #beltless training, with the idea that using #lightweight would allow my body more time to #recover. This cycle I focused on #specificity instead, with fewer sessions overall but more using #kneewraps. Hopefully it pays off two weeks from today in San Diego ๐Ÿ™‚ #powerliftingmotivation

I decided to use my last #lightworkout to #accessorize with #beltless #pausesquats and axle #deadlifts for #grip ๐Ÿ’ชI really like using the @mbslingshot #hipcircle for #squats as a cue to activate the #glutes throughout the whole #rangeofmotion! Last singles shown here (swipe left for pulls) #powerbuilding #meetprep

The #cetcusopen is coming up and a few people have asked me about the #livestream -- it'll be at www.cetcusopen.com/livestream ๐Ÿ‘ I REALLY appreciate everyone's #support headed into the meet ๐Ÿ˜Š If you're going into your own #meetprep and have any questions, ask them here and I'll do my best to answer! #powerlifting
