Every body wanna be a bodybuilder, don't nobody want to lift some heavy ass weight... and be skinny/fluffy/small. Changing the game one catabolic day at a time πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Legit though - how great is it that... this doesn't bug me. Me and my body are at a point of understanding. I give it goals, it performs, I feed I as needed and care for it, it performs. I no longer judge, tear it apart or hate on it. I have one body and I'll not waste another year hating on it.

New @barbellresistance shirt drops today! 'Fat & caffeinated' πŸ˜‚. Yes it's a play on an absolute stereotype of strength training. If the joke offends you.. maybeeee avoid this page! Β£18.99 orders going out this week!

Chilling in my happy place πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ŒπŸ» #gym #barbellresistance #gainzfordayz

Throwback to finally hitting a 200kg deadlift followed by a game of test the bar πŸ‘€πŸ‹πŸΌ #strengthtraining #gainzfordayz #iifym #barbellresistance #instafit

Potato camera- Double at 195kg (75.3kg bw) from today after saturdays 5x3. Hip tightness felt a bit restrictive so not best pleased with depth. Will drop another inch or so for the next session.

Let me get this straight, you want to teach others, make them better themselves but you don't study or better yourself? What kinda bullshit is this. Your work as a coach or instructor whatever doesn't end at the walls of a gym. You need a great deal of experience and a great deal more education. Constantly strive to be better and better informed. If you're looking for a coach, pick the one who is keeping up with research, is constantly building the experience and educational base. Edit - if this offends you... you're probably a bit shit

You can't underestimate the power of being part of something bigger than you.
Regardless of personal ambition, surrounding yourself with people with the knowledge, energy and passion to push you there is imperative.

I'm fucking proud to be a @barbellresistance athlete, and I'm proud to call @c_j_barney my coach. BR is much more than a name on a shirt, it's an identity. It's a moniker for change, knowledge, discipline, humour and family!

Form check #2 from gem here. Okay so a few things to cover - 1 - your elbows need to be in a stable position, to create that upper back tightness required for a stable squat I suggest that you try to pull your scapula together to engage your lats. The the squat, you have clearly got great depth but ATG isn't really needed. Similar to the last post you're somewhat slamming your knees forward, where your furthest knee position should be established in the first half of the squat. In part I think this is down to intra-abdominal pressure. I suggest you go through valsalva breathing practice to make sure you are bracing well. Then for depth, cut it a little higher, say an inch and work on controlling that movement. Also that glute tension at the top I am not personally a fan of, but be weary of tilting your hips so much as you'll apply more pressure to your lumbar. Suggest paused work and beltless practice as an accessory for the bracing.

Form check #3 sent in. A deadlift this time!
So my boy does a lot well, bar position over midfoot, neutral spine, shins just forward of vertical, bar under scap ect.
Only a couple things I can spot from the video and one I'm less sure of. One thing for sure - I would say your bracing and setting is a little loose, you hold yourself well but don't take much time to create tension on the bar or set your brace. Before the pull you should feel like if the bar was taken away you would fall back from the amount of tension out into the bar. A belt may serve to help with the cue but just a matter of getting in air (I myself hold the bar, raise my hips to take in plenty of air and then drop back into position). The other point that I am less sure of is your foot stance. Hard to tell from the angle but it looks a little overly narrow and your foot looks overly externally rotated, optimally is widen slightly and straighten just slightly to allow optimal force output, however if need more footage to say. Over all a strong pull, just the brace and positioning I'd say foremost and possible upper back tightness to look into - belted work as an assistance/ main movement may help.

So today saw a PB for me, after a failed 155kg I went for a new PB at 161kg and it went up. I know I have more in the tank, so here we come competition in July

So not only a new PB but at over 1 stone lighter than last time I hit near these numbers. So for those who say you can't loose weight and gain strength, up yours 😜 feeling bloody amazing right now
As always a massive thank you to my amazing coach @c_j_barney your commitment to me as your client is amazing. I really do appreciate everything you do πŸ˜‰ you are a 🌟 here's to July and team barbell resistance smashing it together πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯ #squats #squatqueen #strongbody #strongmind #warriors #bdfpa #training #warriors #noretreat #nosurrender #barbellresistance #Motiv8 #squatgoals #depth

Going to be taking on clients in prep for another powerlifting meet this year as well as for those taking on their own goals of strength/weight loss/muscle gain. If you want to put your work into something, to step up your game and get on the platform with some experience behind you (me) hen get in touch- callumbarney@gmail.com - I offer coaching that covers your nutrition, programming, meet prep, video coaching and 24/6 messaging. I myself have experienced a dozen times, set 11 British records, became 2x British, European and World champion inside 2 years competing. As well as my masters in Sports Rehab, having over come eating disorders and depression. Wherever you are starting, I'll get you to where you want to be.

My mind isn't in the game. Time to reset and figure out who the fuck I am again. This version of me is getting nowhere fast. Time to bring back the fire.

Yesterday involved a crap bench session with a Krispy Kreme from @elitestrength followed by chilling with my missus and an evening of my favourite people over drinking/playing games and hot tubbing. I might spend most of my time under a barbell or getting others under the bar, but I'm finding 'balance' as they say.

When life gives you lemons, squeeze that fucker in your eye and use the pain as motivation to be the best version of you! 5x5 @ 130kg. This time 6 months 120kg was my 1RM.

I get my girl back today and alcohol later 😳 it's gonna be a good day.

140kg 2x2 from last night, training is cracking on and looking forward to Max testing 😜

Also on a personal note for me weight loss is coming along and getting my shape back. I will always have big hips and bum but I'm good with that.

She's been featured twice recently.. in feeling kind. My client Vicky has been with me two months, this WAS her PR. Today she pulled it for multiple triples and a touch and go AMRAP of 9. One very driven client with a genuine thirst for knowledge.. at 17.

Another day, another strong ass client. Helen has been with me for over a year now! Having come from a cardio bunny, turning up with some... not so strong lifts? With these now all pretty much doubled helen has come on massively. A mum, a teacher and now a now a national competitive powerlifter.

The demons at my door should fear the demons in my head. We perceive so much in life as our downfall, the comments of others, their opinions or reaction, the hurdles thrown in our path and the doors closed in our faces. But these hold nothing to that of the hurdles in our heads. If we can silence our own demons those the world presents us with can do us no harm (aka you might hate me but if I am at terms with who I am, I don't give a fuck what you think)
-------------------------
235 4x4.

Our boy Tom killing some strong OHP work in his @barbellresistance shirt. New orders incoming.

Another day, another client to show off. This time @saragellett. Sarah has made a move from the world of bikini to the world of strength and taken t in her stride. Her technical work is a step up from the basics, executing each lift pretty damn well. Her first comp upcoming and can honestly say I'm proud to have her on my team.
