Ladies and gentlemen of Internet land, we are now back to our regularly scheduled programming. My vacation legs have been thrown into the peaking fire by 8x2 squats at 270. Looking speedy but feeling a little wobbly for today. : :

First time back at stones since the bicep strain. Got a ton of positioning help from @kaybee_13_ and coach Dave. These felt easy and pain free. #strongman #usstrongman #gleasonperformance #atlasstone

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

First day benching since vacation and I feel like the wacky inflatable arm flailing tube man. Had to do 25 reps at 135 on as little sets as possible, so I went to failure each set. Thankfully @free_weight was there to keep me from smashing my face 😘
Then I practiced rowing weight up to my face, and then pushing the floor away from my face 👍🏻

An easy pezy 5lb PR, 160lbs! Funny thing is the sets leading up to this were not great, but I think this is my best set of the day. @teamgpt

Got to play with the hussefell stone today! Worked up to a casual 250. The weight isn't the issue but how the fuck do people carry this thing without feeling like your biceps are getting stabbed with very large butter knives oh yeah and you can't see shit! I have this event in my next two shows. I'm excited to see how far I can go with this. Thanks to @hobbit_dave for being my guide today. #gleasonperformance #teamgpt #strongman #hussefelstone #strongmancardio #bicepsbruised #fuckyourbicep #strongsleeves

So I got to do this really cool thing yesterday 😁😁😁I competed in my first USAPL meet!!! I loved every last moment of it. INCLUDING the lifts I missed!!!! I went 7/9 lifts and I know I worked my a$$ off prepping for the meet. Each lift that went ⚪️⚪️⚪️or 🔴🔴🔴 is a stepping stone to my next big goal. Always looking ahead and keeping the big picture in mind. THANK YOU a ton to Gleason Performance Training and being a part of your Team Gleason!!!! The support and guidance was amazing thru out all of yesterday. The meet was organized, well run and professional. Enormously proud to be part of it all.
I competed in the 57kg class and weighed in at 55.4kg. My best lifts went 215lbs squat, 126 bench and 270 deadlift (video). Clearly I was happy about my lift haha!! On the lifts I did miss I lost my balance on my last squat of 226 and nearly tipped over at the top and my bench attempt of 132 basically just stayed on my chest. 🤷‍♀️Oh well. Time to move on and get stronger. But for now, time to relax and enjoy a beautiful Sunday with my family.

Quick recap of the best lifts from yesterday's USAPL meet. Lots of huffing and puffing, hair flips and mean muggin faces from me in the videos. Usually I love smiling, laughing and being happy as a Minion. This sport however taps into the other side me. The side of me that can be obsessive, relentless and intense. In the words of the infamous CT Fletcher "This is my magnificent obsession". My balanced-imbalanced life.

Not sure if you can notice the difference, but I certainly can feel it. Sometimes I need a little reminder of how far I have come. I can get so wrapped up in getting stronger and getting my numbers up. That I can forget the little steps that I have taken to get better and it's hard for me to see. Every once in awhile I have to take a step back and look at the whole picture, look and see how far I have come. I have to remind myself to have patience (see what I did there), I have a long way to go. No doubt I have done well so far, but the work has just started. I am willing to go all the way.

It was supposed to be 300 for 5 singles, but I can't do math today. So I did 305 for 5 singles. Was hard but I was surprised when my coach told me it was 5lbs over what I thought it was lol. Thanks @teamgpt for letting me play my favorite deadlifting song on the radio, I needed it today with the 95 degree heat. "Feed the Machine" by @redmusiconline ❤️ my favorite band!

When deadlift day doesn't go as planned and you end up with a face full of blood as gravity bitch slaps your ego back to reality. #strongman #deadliftface #teamgpt #gleasonperformance #punisher #fuckgravity #getfuckedbygravity #bloodynose #bloodyface

The "I fucking did it right this time" walk after. 😂😂😂 #4daysout #deadlift #sumo #usapl #beetle #summershowdown #unhpl #hybridstrength #gleasonperformance

Big event coming up this weekend for me and I'm doing my best to stay the course. Lots on my mind and trying to keep that magical balance between work, family, lifting and mental health. Some days I have it together and life runs smooth. Other days I'm tired, loose my car keys, spill my coffee, run late for appointments and just want to eat cheesecake. It's called life and it's all part of the balancing act. I've put my time and effort into the nutrition, training and recovery for this weekend, only thing left to do is show the work.
Pretty salad I made with a boat load of grilled chicken underneath. Don't worry about the carbs..... I had a ton of those too today. I eat all the food all the time. #powerlifting #powerfood #usapl #gleasonperformance #squat #bench #deadlift #puttheworkin #proteincarbsfats #eattherainbow #eatingcarbslikeamonster

I had my first day back of programming and between the heat and not doing a full workout in about a month I got my ass kicked. I was suppose to go home and meal prep dinners. Instead I made a pizza sandwich so much noms. #strongman #gleasonperformance #teamgpt #foreverbulk #firstdayback #food #pizza #pizzacreations #bulkasaur
