MOST RECENT

225kg(495lbs) for an ego boosting touch n go double ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
Since the last meet and the break I took from heavy trainings I hadnt gone beyond 205kg so this was a much needed boost before I get back on a normal program again๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช
Competition-wise Norway and the West Europe Classic is officially off my plans cause I'd rather spend a week in Slovakia parachuting at the European Paratroopers Association๐Ÿ˜›...but Balkans Classic in Serbia is still an option๐Ÿ˜‰

As always I'm rocking an American as fuck t-shirt and listening to heavy metal ๐Ÿค˜(accept-screaming for a love bite)

Hybrid origins;
Great grandpa and great grandma Chadwell.
As you can see great grandpa was significantly darker since he was halfblood Cherokee, he also was one of the most stubborn human beings to ever walk this planet(yeah I get that from him๐Ÿ˜‡) and from great grandma I got that never giving up attitude as she attended college in her 80s๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ“š
That couple that-was together for more than 60 years- raised 3 boys,all of them military men( all 3 USAF) and all of them gun loving, god fearing, red blooded Americans๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
For sure they weren't perfect but they did a Damn good job.

Most of the things I know about life I learned from movies...80s action movies...So according to what I've learned so far all it takes for good to triumph over evil are some good guys wearing short shorts(my silkies haven't arrived yet..๐Ÿ˜ค),aviator sunglasses,having big muscles and above all demonstrating an America fuck yeah attitude๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
(That attitude can more often than not be displayed by wearing @gymfidel apparel๐Ÿฆ…)

So yeah...happy 4th of July fuckers ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธgo get drunk and preferably start a fight with some brits cause we're the descendants of men who would not be ruled ๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿ”ดโšช๐Ÿ”ต๐Ÿฆ…

"Are you free today?"
-Stares into the distance
-Thinks of 1776
-Bald eagles appear out of nowhere and start screeching as loud as freedomly possible

Today would have been your birthday, you'd turn 92 and I'm pretty sure you'd still firmly believe that when dressed formally you'd overshadow all the rest of us.
You were there since the day I came to this world,practically you raised me to be the man I am today. All the values I hold dear and define me have come from you,my manners,my way of thinking and my sense of duty towards the family name and myself.
For better or worse you were there to see me screw up repeatedly, you were there when I was a mess and every time I'd hit rock bottom you and mom were there to pick me up. You missed some great things though. I wish you were there to see me put myself together and finding my purpose. I wish you were there to see me apply to law school,getting accepted and then graduating. I wish you would be here to see me not settle for anything less than my dreams and not compromise when it comes to my goals. Soon enough I'll follow in grandpa's footsteps and put on the same uniform and I'll again wish that you would be there to see that.
You made me who I am today and I want to thank you for that.
Happy birthday Grandma.

Cause if you don't get out of your comfort zone regularly and try new things(in my case my comfort zone being powerlifting and strongman) you're not truly living๐Ÿ˜Ž

Since it's #singletsaturday I thought it would be fun to do a throwback to 2015 and my first strongman competition in Eretria.
The video is from the car deadlifts for reps event where I got 3rd overall with 10 reps and keep in it was an open division with me being the lightest, weighing in at about 81-82kg while all the other guys wereย  100kg+. As you can notice, since I am the beloved hobbit you all love and cherish, I had to stand on top of the cement suitcases we had made for the farmers walk event to be able to lift the car and Vagelis who is standing behind me had to hold his foot against the suitcase so that it wouldn't slip or something ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ
At the same time Kostas(the referee with the red jacket)was commenting every now and then that I'm a mini strongman and that's how this stuck with me alongside hobbit power๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

As of late I've picked up the habit of running 3-4miles daily, my favourite place to go run is the the place formerly known Iraklion Air Station. This place has had a significant impact on me and my family going back 2 generations. It was when my grandad was stationed here for the first time working with intercept machines(yes grandad did his part to defeat the commies๐Ÿ˜Ž) that he met my grandma, a few years later this was the station where he retired from and then worked at as a civilian. It was the honor guard from the Iraklion Air Station that presented my grandma with the folded flag that accompanied grandad to his last residence. This was also the place where my mom got her associates degree from and the place where I have some early childhood memories from. I do remember going there with grandma and mom before it shut down and having some of the best burgers Uncle Sam could provide.
Now let's move forward 26 years. That majestic place that I've been talking about has turned into a shithole with every building having been looted and vandalised. Luckily some of the building have been salvaged to some extend and are being used as schools and public services. It still saddens me every time I go there and look at all the abandoned and vandalised buildings, however it's still fucking awesome that I'm going for a run where my grandad did PT almost 60 years ago. As I was running today I stumbled upon a mural I had never noticed before, though there are weeds all around to the point that you can't get a good look at it I did my best trying to get a good shot of it. It seems to be a variation of the star spangled banner along with a plane but I can't really tell. So I took a couple of shots and when I got home I saw that last one, despite the weeds and the fucked up image of the building there's a ray if the sun pointing at the mural and for some reason this made me smile and made me think of the lyrics of the Star Spangled Banner by @madisonrising "For those unaware
That flag is still there"๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #starspangledbanner #madisonrising #familypride #chadwellclan #americanmade #appalachianmade #hobbitpower #traintobehardtokill #cherokeefamily #merica #unclesam

Seriously the next time I compete internationally I'm gonna wear this, approach random girls and ask;
"Hey babe on a scale of 1 to America how free are you tonight?"
Definitely the most epic t-shirt I ever bought๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

230kg(505lbs)x3 with only 3hrs of sleep,2 cardio sessions and heavy squats since yesterday and on top of that a full days work...I am feeling weak as fuck but still I managed to pull through ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ Time for an epic family pride rant;

So I guess that's happiness,the feeling you overcame adversity,that you didn't find a convenient excuse to quit. A year ago I was far from being happy with myself, I had let the circumstances of the time beat me down and the only thing I did was nagging about how unfair the whole situation was. A year later I have befriended my demons, accepted the circumstances and started building upon them.
So my paperwork is being delayed and I may have to wait for quite a bit till I get the honor of enlisting in the US Military?Good. Instead of crying about it I'll take the time inbetween to become better, bigger-stronger-faster. I'll take that time to start and perhaps even finish my masters in National Security Studies.
My personal life is all fucked up? Good. Time to focus on more important things such as bettering myself in any way possible.
For fucks sake I'm a direct descendant of Cpt.David Chadwell who helped establish a new nation, I'm the grandson of SSgt John Chadwell who decided to escape the poverty of his hometown in Virginia and at the same time serve the greatest nation on earth. That poor halfblood(Cherokee) boy from Ewing travelled all around the world combatting communism and financially helped his parents get their own farm.
I won't let my circumstances define who I am, I will define them instead. I'm American made and built to last. The blood running through my veins obliges me to be exceptional, to be savage not average.๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿฆ… #hobbitpower
