100 lb. squat clean PR! I'll hit 105 lb. next time. I started crossfit 2 months ago after 9 years of being a skinny cross country runner. Although people at the gym call me a stick, maybe one day I'll have some real muscle πŸ™πŸ» #aetherarmy #aetherbarbell #utahfitfam #crossfit #squatclean

The Shredded Megan πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Feeling very grateful today ❀️☺️ The time has come and I wanted to say THANK YOU to my main squeeze πŸ‘‰πŸ» my coach @aether777 for all that you have done and sacrificed for me (and my teammates) the time and work you have put in to helping us be our own best - doesn't go unnoticed. I don't know how you deal with 4 girls in a deficit, emotions wack, nagging at you daily and you still haven't killed us off... yet haha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You are an incredible person inside and out and we are truly lucky to have you. Thanks to my teammates, friends, family and most importantly my boyfriend 😘 for being so supportive, kind, understanding and patient with me over these last few weeks. Competition prep is like nothing I've ever experienced before and I couldn't have done it without the support of all of you! I feel so blessed. Thank you again :) I love you all!

Sitting 2 days out and couldn't be more excited for this weekend and having the opportunity to compete with my team in Miami. Then some much needed r&r with the crew! βœŒπŸ»οΈβ˜€οΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘™πŸŒ΄β€οΈ #blessed #teamaetherbuilt #2daysout #NPCnationals #NPCbikini #competitor #grateful #letsgo #imready #functionalfitness #crossfit #bodybuilding #olympiclifting #weightlifting #IIFYM #science #hybridathlete #flexibledieting #leanmachine #healthy #lifestyle #goals #shredded #fitfam #r&;r #beachtime #thankyou #aetherarmy

Here's a nice little picture of me succeeding on a rope climb... which I want to point out is a semi deceptive representation of the day. We had a mock comp and it was hard for me. Mentally and emotionally I struggled and it affected my performance (which resulted in an internal pity party and a bit of an all day cycle of internal abuse). Yes, I had victories... but I also got a big fat ZERO on a WOD that I "should've" been able to get through because I couldn't hit the beginning snatch movement well below my 1 rep max. It sucked, I cried.
Idk why I'm posting this other than to just say we all post things that make our lives look so awesome when in reality we all have a shitty time sometimes. But keep on keeping on cause those are just moments in between successes. And also to just remind myself that I actually did have a great day with people I freakin LOVE who had major victories of their own and deserve positivity and love and support like they give me. #lovemygym #aetherarmy

It's crazy how a year ago I couldn't even squat with an empty bar above my head. I lacked the mobility, strength and stability to do so , and now my 1 rep max for an overhead squat is 130 lbs! In the time I was given to clean and overhead squat for two reps I hit 110 lbs at the @crossfit4cysticfibrosis competition.
Our bodies are incredible and capable of so much. And even though our progress may slow down on one thing , there is always more we can work on and work towards.

Milestone today: Tried strict handstand push-ups for the first time today . So excited to have been able to do them! Got 10 unbroken , and 30 total .πŸŽ‰πŸ’ͺ

My soul... and body did a little happy dance when he showed up to watch me. πŸ€— He gets to see me workout all the time but he knew this was a competition ... as soon as I was done he said , "Did you win?" And I told him no but I was having fun and that's what mattered... his response, "why?" πŸ˜‚ He's so competitive . Maybe in a few years lol ... And for real, he's not even 4 years old yet and is more than half my height. 😫

Today we fought in the name of #cysticfibrosis ... and what an amazing cause to come together for. This was my second time competing in this comp... I'm a completely different athlete than I was then... and it still kicked my butt. Always will. That's what it's about ... suffering through a few workouts to fight for those suffering day in and day out. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… I love this Aether fam that I get to be apart of and the entire CrossFit community. ❀️πŸ’ͺ @crossfit4cysticfibrosis @aetherbarbell #draesdreamteam #crossfitforcysticfibrosis #65roses #crossfit #goodtimes #aetherbuilt #aetherarmy #fitlife #fitfam #dreamteam

It was less than a year ago that squatting with an empty barbell over my head made me feel like I was going to break. I had never done it and I lacked the stability, strength and mobility to do the move. Little by little I've added weight and have only even tried 87 lbs once and that was yesterday. Today I told myself I would get a 1 rep max of at least 100 because my jerk max is 130 lbs . I kept pushing and hit a body weight overhead squat at 115 lbs. πŸŽ‰ I told myself once I faced my fear of having that heavy weight over me like that... that I would finally make some progress with my snatches and I'm determined to get strong in this position. I told myself I would get this and I fought hard to make it happen . .

First weight shown 105 then my max at 115 lbs . @aetherbarbell πŸ’ͺ
