201lbs Pr w/ the fancy commands! It’s only 1lb but I’ll take it. Thanks @aylathurstan for the lift off. And @teamgpt for yelling “back” lol. This felt WAY harder then it looked.

Oh, the places you'll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You'll be as famous as famous can be,
with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

Except when they don't
Because, sometimes they won't.

I'm afraid that some times
you'll play lonely games too.
Games you can't win
'cause you'll play against you.

All Alone!
Whether you like it or not,
Alone will be something
you'll be quite a lot.

And when you're alone, there's a very good chance
you'll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won't want to go on.

But on you will go
though the weather be foul.
On you will go
though your enemies prowl.
On you will go
though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many
a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore
and your sneakers may leak.

On and on you will hike,
And I know you'll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

You'll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You'll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life's
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never foget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.) KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

So...
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
You're off the Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So...get on your way!

Thank Odin finally a good heavy squat day! Hit 355 for a nice 3# PR, then moved to some light reverse bands for 370. Hardly any hip/back pain and no weird shifting. My goal for this meet is 363 and I'm finally feeling positive about hitting it. It must have been bc @emilyloola let me share her rack 😉

Should’ve checked the angle before I started, but oh well. 12 reps in ALAP sets starting at 225 ending at 240. @teamgpt

500LBx1 for a 25LB PR!!
So much emotion went into this lift. After not hitting a real squat PR for over a year, this really fired me up. Half of 2017 was plagued with injuries and set backs and now I'm finally in a good place to progress.
Huge shoutout to the @beetle_barbell and @teamgpt fam for always showing support and telling me to go for this. Special shoutout to @lukeduhamel for changing my entire mindset when it comes to lifting, it's been a huge factor in my progress recently.
About 12 weeks out and ready to kill it!

#deadliftsfromlastnight : team deadlift dumpster fire reporting for duty! @teamgpt had to trick me into pulling heavy by adding a chain every other rep and it worked. Total weight at lockout on the last one was 375ish, matching my forever gym PR. Maybe if I take enough shots whiskey I'll actually be able to pull this at the meet 🙃
More importantly, why do I still need to lift in winter clothes on April 20th? This is some bullshit ⛄️

Bodybuilding day fun stuff.
Goblet squat w/ overhead press (8kg) @teamgpt how do these look?
60x6 dumbbell bench press.
Kroc rows 75x15 thanks for letting me borrow your wrist straps, Ryan. My fingers didn’t feel like they were going to fall off. But look at those shoulders though 😎

#murderbench goal achieved with the official as fuck plates and the princess rack. Only 2.5 weeks to go! Thanks @april_sno for the best handoffs in the land and @maghanwilbur for being on butt watch duty 🏅

465@7! This was after many singles leading up to it. The goal was 430lbs for the day but I made the spontaneous decision to lower my rack height and that alone made everything feel massively lighter on my back.
After killing myself last week with the most volume I've ever done, this is a really good number to hit. 13 weeks out from my meet. Less go 🙏

#teamgpt #beetlebarbell #shouldawentfor5bills #khem

395x6@8 for my final set of 5x6. Wasn't feeling the greatest today but the GPT fam stopped me from sandbagging another squat session.
4th week back into lowbar and things are feeling great. Almost done with this volume block then its time to prep for my next meet 🌝

Today is deadlift day, but this deserves its own post. It’s officially official. I am in the 200 club for bench! No greater feeling then this. Can’t wait to see what else I can do. YAS! @teamgpt

Bench day.
190lbs front squat that is a PR. Eventually I would like to get a 200 front squat, not to far off.
Bench. 165x3 for 12 sets. It’s moving really well I think. 1st and last set recorded.
@teamgpt
And also these @girlswhopowerlift shorts are nice. Finally shorts that don’t ride up. And are super comfortable.

DEADLIFT PARTY!!!!!! Huge PR today about 3 weeks away from my next meet. Had to crush a bud heavy in honor of @huckfinnbarbell to celebrate. Only pulled 500 once before and decided to smash a 15lb PR to solidify my confidence with 500 on the platform. This is 3 times my body weight and then another 30lbs or so. Time to maintain conditioning and lock in my mechanics for May 6th at the USAPL Connecticut State Championship. #gleasonperformance Let’s fucking go. @deadlifttillimdead @jujimufu @nbctitangames @therock #usapl #74kgboiz #74kg #powerlifting #deadlift #deadliftparty #deadlifttillimdead #SBD #strengthtraining #strengthandconditioning #power #asics #fitnesshumor #fitnessmeme #powerbuilding #bodybuildingmemes #allamericananimal #animalpak #acrobolix @tomrboyden

I took it easy today. PSYCH. I did not take it easy. Squat PR at 280. Yay!!! I guess that whole #nofear is working. Just creeping closer to that 300 HB squat.

#deadliftsfromlastnight : not sure if @no_gainz_ralphie is doing an interpretive dance or making fun of me 🤔
Light singles with mashup of bumpers, iron, and chains bc I don't really care as long as my back doesn't hurt 👵🏻

Heavy goblet squats are looking real good same weight as last week, but felt better. 60 dumbbell benches felt rather good too. Today is the first day out of the week being migraine free.
