It's always a good bench day when the plates match your hair πŸ™†πŸ’™. On today's episode of GetMoreBigger: 4x3 bench at 140, followed by 2x8 at 120. Accessories of doom: 3x10 belt squats (I know they're high, still trying to figure them out), 3x8 RDL with bent over row, 5x10 db rows, 2x20 face pulls, and eccentric pull-ups.

This is why I love this sport! No better feeling than hitting a PR that you've been chasing. Smoked 385# so I jumped to 405#, which has been a goal of mine for a long time. Can't thank #teamgpt enough for their support, seriously an amazing gym. Thanks @markymark198 and Raphael for the spots! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ And @gleasonperformance with the cues #gleasonperformance

Got to work to some heavier atlas stones today at #lightningfitness finished with a 345 load to 54" attempted the 380 a few times but it just wasn't there today. Excited for what's to come. #startingstrongman #atlasstone #strongman #gleasonperformance

Good people of the Internet, I do in fact still lift. This weeks hi volume cycle of doom features 5x6 squats at 242#, followed by America bar bench, RDL's, Bulgarian split squats with suitcase hold, leg extensions (because I need more quads?), and some eccentric pull-ups bc one day I would like to do some real ones πŸ‘πŸ» #teamGPT #gleasonperformance #powerlifting #usapl #girlswhopowerlift #thisisfemalepowerlifting #highvolumecycleofdoom #squats #functionalthickness #downwiththethickness #getbigordietrying #manyfacesofpain #iliketocutmyheadoutofvideos

HOOK. GRIP. ALL. DAY. @no_gainz_ralphie with the flawless camera work #swag. BUT 3 weeks in with @gleasonperformance and I'm noticing a huge difference. We are attacking weaknesses and moving heavy things very fast. He is one of the most knowledgeable guys in the sport, and I'm amped for what the future brings. @gleasonperformance is now doing online coaching, support the cause and get strong af tbh. #gleasonperformance #ihateoverheadsquats #imgoingtooverheadsquat135for6

705 lb deadlift (4 lb all time PR) from last night. I had the perfect storm of events during the day that was setting me up to have a terrible training session, including an injury scare in warm-ups, so I'm glad I was able to pull this off. With the form changes I've made this offseason (simplified set up, higher hip position) and all the rep PR's I've hit in training lately, I'm feeling very confident for a much bigger pull than this at the #XPCFinals #ArnoldClassic2016. I haven't hit a 1RM deadlift PR in 2 years, as my training revolves around speed work and rep maxes, so this was an awesome mental hurdle to get over considering the circumstances. I still need to do a better job of pulling the flex out of the bar before my initial pull, so any tips are appreciated. Thanks to all my #TeamGPT teammates for getting me refocused to hit this PR! #powerlifting #gleasonperformance

330x9 - because I decided to do 16" pulls with the crazy strongman crew today while listening to George Micheals. These were after paused deadlifts and 320x10 so needless to say my posterior chain is shot. It sure was fun @grillmeacheese @neoprene_prince #teamgpt #gleasonperformance #freedom

Squats today with an AMRAP. I was able to get 160x17! It's in two separate vids, cause Instagram only allows 1 min videos. Of course I had to include @gleasonperformance flex in the end lol.

Today was pretty awesome. My ankle was still sore so decided to do a little sandbag and forgo atlas stones. Hit a pretty big PR at 275 for 100 feet and it felt super easy. This was the first of the two sets. Might play with bag positioning when picked but other than that felt smooth. #gleasonperformance #gracefulasfuck #sandbag #sandbagcarry #sandbagsaturday #bootyos #bootyfordays #strongman #motivatedtowin

Today I'm posting a #failurefriday. Even though I failed this lift on Saturday, I am still extremely proud of it. After my successful second attempt of 363/165, I walked to the table to put in 374/170. My coach had already written down 385/175 on my card. I decided in that moment that if @gleasonperformance thought I could lift it, then I would fucking lift it. Although I couldn't lock it out, I am still proud of myself for having the confidence to try. I am usually the first one to be negative and tear myself to pieces over a mistake, but my coach gave me something more valuable than physical strength this day, he gave me confidence, and I will be forever grateful.

Was a nice rest but now back to work. 95lbs belt squat for 3 sets, these are so weird. Then it was one of my first times doing sumo deadlifts, those were at 225.

Well Saturday was fun, but now it's back to work for 2017 Northeast Regionals. About 14 weeks out, this will be crazy insane! Time to smash some goals.

Despite having my ankle all jacked up I was still able to work up to a 320 push press on my overhead press for a PR. Overhead is definitely my weakest lift so it's nice to finally see some improvement. Followed by 2 sets of 4 at 230. Also I'm pretty sure I scared AJ #strongman #startingstrongman #overheadpress #axlepress #pushpress #gleasonperformance #norsefitness #strongsleeves

A little bit of a #transformationtuesday to last years spring classic. My openers then were around 154 squat, 121 bench, 253 deadlift. Openers from this past weekend were 207 squat, 143 bench and 297 deadlift, I would say that's an improvement. My last attempts from last year were 176 squat, 132 bench and 281 deadlift. Now they are 231 squat, 154 bench, 325 deadlift. Pretty cool! Best decision I have ever made getting @gleasonperformance as a coach ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Not only does he write your program, he is there for you mentally. Forever when I go to squat, bench or deadlift I will hear his cues. That's a good thing. WWRD (What Would Ryan Do) 😜

Finally recovered enough from two 12 hour plus days of lifting and judging to post how I did. I'm a perfectionist and not satisfied with my performance, but I did get a new bench and total PR (and won the 84kg class) this Saturday at CT State Championships.
My opening squat was so light that I tripped and moved my foot before the judge said "rack", therefore rightfully causing my coach to lower all my other squats to be safe. Tied my meet PR of 341/155, but I was expecting to hit 352/160.
Bench ironically went very well, 10# meet PR of 176/80.
My second attempt deadlift, a 5# meet PR of 363/165, flew up despite my having barely hung onto it two weeks ago. My coach thought I had turned into a magical deadlifting unicorn and increased my third attempt from 374/170 to 385/175 and I couldn't lock it out. I was happy that he thought I was capable of pulling a 10# all time PR, but angry at myself for not going with the lower number and adding to my goal total.
Far from the meet I wanted but I'm trying to be ok with not performing perfectly, and having a slight overall improvement. As always, the most thanks to @gleasonperformance for being the best coach and running out most successful CT state meet yet. Thank you to everyone on #TeamGPT for being the raddest bunch of humans on the planet. And thanks to @grrrl_clothing for providing us with some great prizes! (Special shout out to assistant coach/emcee/epic song picker/white powder applier @brianbellitto for all of the above.) Thanks for reading my book report.

#motivationmonday The way I see it the greater the failure, the sweeter the victory. Without failure you would have nothing to fight for or avenge. In fact failure is sometimes the best motivation puts a little fire in your soul, fight in your heart and determination in your eyes. Makes you work harder for your goals and maybe reach even further then you ever imagined, you just have to want it bad. BE RELENTLESS!
Go a head push me, I will show you my fight.
