There’s something frightening and refreshing about the world of powerlifting. There’s a brutal objectivity to it. You lift the weight, or you don’t. You’re strong enough, or you’re not; and all the gym time in the world can’t prepare you for the platform if your mental focus isn’t also at its peak. @fitexpochicago, I’m coming for you.

Day 5: Why do my heavy sets of 5 take a full 50 seconds 🙀 Why do my hips swing to the left ↩️ So many questions. Messing with my deadlift setup ⚖️ Messing around with the pit shark 🦈 Struggle bud today so finished with the prowler. #legday #gtl #jackedandtan #squat #beltsquats #pitshark #squats #diadedeadlifts #prowlerpush #houseofpain #deadlift #doyoueven #liftheavyoften #squatlife #shesquats #beltsquats #barbellbabes #barbelllife #liftheavy #fitmoms #girlsthatlift #weightlifters #weightliftingisnotacrime #weightlifting #roguefitness

Get dat booty turned ON! If your glutes are not properly activated before you start heavy squatting your knees & back WILL NOT be happy!
I was loving these pause squats as an activator before my heavy squat sesh. Pause squats are exactly what they sound like- pause for 5 seconds at the bottom of your squat to feel the glutes work! Having weight on only one side of your body is also great for core stability activation
2-3 rounds 8 reps on each side 💀 💀

Here's my PR (72kg) clean and jerk from Sunday! One of these days my jerk will be on par with my clean and I won't just power it all the time 🙄

happiness is not a checklist. a dream job, a fast car, a good home, even love, mean nothing at all if you have not yet found a way to feel full and content in your own mind & heart ❥

Windmill action.

“The best advice I can give women on why they should train is to do so for themselves... do so not because you “have to” to burn calories, or because you ate too much or because society says you should, but because you want to be better and enjoy the process”
- Elle, head coach Tone Athletica
