Last actual #workout before the #uspa #natty #fit meet next Saturday. Pretty #confident I could've hit one more but I took the nice #PR and called it a day since I hit heavy #squats 36 hours ago 😳 The #worldrecord will come down to #gripstrength again but I'm much stronger #sumo than #conventional so I feel good about it. Now off to #losangeles to talk #sportshistory and meet @chadwesleysmith at @juggernauttraining! πŸ’ͺπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘#powerbuilding #meetprep

Five days after my nice #PR at 750 I hit this #sumodeadlift set of 785x5. Had to use #straps but I'm still happy with it since a week ago the most I'd ever done was 725 for 5 πŸ™‚I've been training at under 200 pounds #bodyweight so I guess I'll stick to 181 for a while, but honesty after watching #guardiansofthegalaxy last night I really just wanna go 220 now so I can get that #bautista #physique πŸ’ͺ Oh, and if you want what I'm sniffing at the beginning, it's #smelling #salt coming soon from Cora Labs! #powerbuilding #deadlift

#throwbackthursday to when I threw on the #belt and hit up a big #sumodeadlift #PR with the legendary @davegoodin watching πŸ’ͺ Too bad I broke one of the plates, so the last two reps were only 747.5 πŸ˜‰I had an awesome time helping out @marksmellybell with his seminar at @onnitacademy last weekend and picked up some #powerlifting #technique tips myself -- they definitely helped out here! So did @kinetixbodyscience who has healed my #kneepain with #guasha and #sportsmassage over the past few months so I actually CAN pull sumo 😬 Now just gotta strengthen that #hookgrip a little πŸ‘#allthumbs #beastmodeon #elitefts

Incredible picture from @josephmcmillanphoto. Now if only I knew #poses half as well as I know how to #deadlift πŸ™ƒ We've got some cool #photoshoot ideas in the works and I can't wait to see how they turn out! #powerbuilding #physiquecompetitor??

#sumodeadlift getting better each week πŸ’ͺ This was an easy #PR on a #powerbar and I really wanted to go for 5 or 6 reps, but I've learned that a #conservative #mindset leads to more #gainz... it's usually smarter to leave some in the tank for next time. Swipe left for a #waybackwednesday to my #beltless #hookgrip PR of 775 -- I hit that immediately after pulling 725x3 so I'm #psychedup to see what happens when I transition to a #whippy deadlift bar!

Some #easywork from this weekend with #squats, #closegrip #bench, and #hanging #legraises to finish up my first block of my #thinkstrong #offseason program. I'll take a couple days off before starting the next one. Looking forward to some fun stuff with @elitefts and @animalpak next month, make sure you come see me and @worldbreakersavage at @bigtexgym on June 24 if you're in #austin! πŸ’ͺ#abtraining #abworkout

LINK IN BIO πŸ‘#sumodeadlift feeling better every day - 675 for a #beltless set of 8 here on a stiff #powerbar for an easy #PR. Bonus #throwBACKthursday pics and video in my new #Elitefts article about a killer #backworkout to build #thickness! Tried to post them here too but Instagram hangs whenever I try to upload multiple πŸ˜₯ #alldamnday #lightweight @king_of_the_lifts @deadlifttillimdead

WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE?!? #repost from @512trainer who lost his leg last year and yet smashed this 200 kilo/440 #squat at the #usapl #powerlifting meet at @austinsimplyfit last weekend. This guy has the most #positiveattitude I've ever seen and that's why he's been so successful -- definitely follow him for some epic #workoutinspiration πŸ’ͺ #powerliftingmeet #whatsyourexcuse #adaptiveathlete

@chefscutjerky was kind enough to send me #samples of their #beefjerky so @staciardison and I had some fun making this #promovideo πŸ˜‚ Real talk though it's excellent #jerky, super #moist and the #macros are on point, especially for the #chickenjerky varieties. Also how bout that #onehand #hookgrip #sumodeadlift πŸ‘πŸ’ͺ

@shredded.union @muscle.union best I could do on the #veins #popping after #weighin at the #cetcusopen

Camera #snafu today so here's a #throwbackthursday to my last #heavylifting before the #cetcusopen with a double at 730 on #squats in the @pioneer_fit #phantoms. Threw in some #hammercurls from today, too -- I like the cross-body style to help get a little #bicepworkout and keep my #forearms healthy. πŸ’ͺ #powerlifting #powerbuilding

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