A friend sent this to me! LOL!
She's a nurse. Must work.

I'm IN LOVE with these jeans. And Levi's online store regularly offers sales and discounts. This pair was only $30 and fits like a glove. Not a sausage encasing.
Oh, and I can squat and high kick in them. Super stretchy.
I'm not going to pay $150 for a pair of jeans, even if they are supposedly made just for athletes.

Curly hair mayhem.
Bobby pin life.

I could post a pic or vid of my 255 press today but this still-frame from right before the rep makes my pony and its luxurious waves look good, and 255 isn't that great of a press anyway, so #longhairdontcare it is. Also: before you ask - I got that shirt for free when they closed cause I happened to be walking by.

MOST RECENT

Technique Fridays
.
Front squat rehab - after a conversation with @sarahhoppingestrella, she put the bug in my brain that front squats aren't so bad if you stay upright. She used to have the same problem as I did, good morning-ing out of them.
.
Snatch Technique- I jump back significantly with the snatch, so I have this mat behind my heels as immediate feedback. Starting super light for obvious reasons.

TUESDAY TAKE TWO
.
After correcting technique, hit the same exercise at the weight I wanted to.
.
Now I need to work on not jumping back.
.
Accessories:
- Front leg raised split squats
- Towel bar rows
- Seated strict press

W1D3 and not as impressive as some of the pb's that have fallen this week @valhalla_strength_brisbane but this is a big one for me.
This was my opener at @gpcaustralia states this year and knocked out 4x3 tonight.

Furniture slider fun.

My goal is to combine these two moves as a progression into a press handstand.
.
Never mind that I don’t (yet) have a handstand. When that clicks, I’m gonna run away with the circus.

HOW TO PUT ON A WEIGHTLIFTING BELT
Using a post to get it tighter.

WHEN TO PUT ON A WEIGHTLIFTING BELT
.
Generally you want to put on your belt before the lift because it doesn't help much once the lift is over.

COOL DOWN
We all know we should do it, but it’s “boring.” So this is where I put rehab and skill work.
.
A - More jump rope to strengthen the calf and hopefully the stretch reflex. It doesn’t LOOK better, but I’m not in horrible pain as I do this as with the last video I posted.
.
B - More ankle rehab, this time to strengthen the anterior tibia muscle. I press into full dorsiflexion, then try to flex and keep my foot there as a rock back on the heel.
.
C - Ab work for aerial class. Keeping my arms straight and pressing my hands into the ground, I have to lift my hips and slide my knees under me. I tend to “skip” using my lower abs, and this movement won’t happen if I don’t fire them first.

CAN YOU SPOT THE DIFFERENCE?
.
Even coaches need coaching.
.
My snatches felt all over the place so I took video. I noticed that in SET A is was diving shoulders under the bar, leaving my hips back.
.
In SET B I focus on sitting straight down after full extension. Fancy that, the bar lands balanced over my body.

@SPSGYM has another introductory weightlifting class starting in Oct. Six Saturdays, 2 hours each, coached by @mikebodymechanic and @brandon_chien.

I acquiesced to eating at In n Out after last weekend's weightlifting meet.

Always underwhelmed.

Long femur problems.
.
I haven't front squatted in a year. I haven't done any squatting for nearly 2 months. Something in my gut said it was time to start retraining my front squat from ground zero.
.
So here I am with 95lbs (best ever is 315lbs) with a wider full hand grip, a wider stance, and forcing my body to stay up-right.
.
Followed by supplementary strength work for circus stuff.

I only lift to have guns when I pose.
