What a way we've come. The mental battle through these stages is unbelievable. What is the biggest hurdle you've overcome? Physical or mental. (Edit: These are ALL old photos)

Quick prayer to Norse gods before a heavy squat #helpmeOdin

Bit of time between gym & clients this afternoon, catching up with @markbellspowercast , this podcast used to be part of my routine every day on the way to work but I've been slacking recently, the mix of great information from different lifters alongside plenty of πŸ’© jokes, makes it pretty easy to listen to.

This episode featured @jenthompson132 an incredible athlete who's benched 325lbs.

Very good session today but extremely tiring and sweaty (but the #barbellresistance tops don't leave sweat patches πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Working up to some 52.5kg dumbell presses today, still aiming for those 60s. β›·β›·πŸ‘

Sometimes you prep like a boss, other times you can just cook. Steak and spiced Brussel sprout/asparagus hash. Quick to prep, quicker to eat! #tastesgood #uglyfood #flexibledieting #iifym #barbellresistance #personaltrainer #randomhashtags #peaches

3 sets of 5 with 140kg. This was my opener last year; now it's my bitch πŸ˜†πŸ’ͺ #excusetheloading #squats #progress #gains #powerlifting #synergystrong #synergybarbell #barbellresistance

72.5kg snatch grip deadlift. Much easier than I thought it would be! #barbellresistance #powerlifting #strong #girlswhopowerlift #girlswholift #strongnotskinny #squats #deadlift #bodybuilding

An honest enough physique update. I'm up 3/4kg and actually kind of feel it. Bear in mind I've stayed between 73-74kg for 3 years for competing. I feel much fuller but not loving the fluff. I intend to slowly drop some of it off in volume phases but not quite yet. For once I don't feel constricted by my mentality, where my body once defined me, now it is just another measurable byproduct. For someone who fought anorexia, body dismorphia and bulimia I'd say that's a pretty bold improvement #embracethefluff

Had a play at the end of today's session creating and maintaining a more efficient movement with a greater arch. The arch relies on the flexion of the cervical spine and extension of the lumbar spine and /pelvic junction, being in this position drives the chest closer to the bar reducing range - largely dependant on the size of the rib cage- and allows for more efficient leg drive whilst maintaining glute position on the bench. The topic of arches is greatly debated and my opinion is - who the fuck cares. Debate it all you like and I'll do what I want πŸ‘ŒπŸ» not attempted to bench past 60kg in this position yet. #cheating #archfordays #callmelimbo #fuckstrength -------------------------

I'd hate to coach me ... #coach #athletesaretrickybastards #lovemyjob

My god people can talk. 100% dedicated to.. saying they're dedicated? Yet where are the results? You 'go hard', 'beast mode' and where the fuck are you. You work 24/7 yet have a part time job and no skills outside of it? You're madly stressed but have no responsibility?
Who the fuck are you? What are you working for. Don't tell the world, show them. So sick of hearing shit talk from people, how they could do it too if they had the time, they could smash it but it's not easy for them. It's not easy for anyone, this shit isn't easy for me! But I bet my actions show you who the fuck I am. I am a dangerously ambitious bastard, without filter and with a senseless drive for better, I give a damn how my friends do and actually fucking support them, I stand by those I care for, I build and develop and work.
What have you done lately.

Life is too short to try 1 protein flavour. (My inspirational post for the day.) I like this πŸ˜ƒβ˜•οΈ Follow the link in bio to check out @myproteinuk products.

I posted this long ago, back when I told people my dreams and they laughed, id like to name and shame but it isn't politically correct πŸ–•πŸ»πŸ–•πŸ»πŸ–•πŸ». I don't feel uncomfortable any more, my goals are 'unrealistic', 'silly', 'a waste of time'. Just fucking watch me.

When you're spotter is more excited than you are.. #dontworryistilldontsquat
