Throw up Thrusday! As in throw up some weight! Over 18 months ago when I hit my first ever 400# CJ. I was very proud and pumped as was my coach! Since then I've hit 400+ 2 other times. Once in training and another time during the #crossfit #liftoff
This is a performance I will repeat and progress even further past! Training has a fluid dynamic and will have peaks and troughs! Just need to really learn to surf! #cannotcontroltheseabutyoucanlearntosurf #nothingfortheswimback

Nice morning at the #randyjonesrun , running in memory of our good friend Travis, with his family and friends! Last year Travis did this run in preparation for his half marathon.

TEAM TRAV-ASS rocking the Team Parker run this morning...I know you're always with us Trav but seeing your fav TMNT Raphael at the end proved it! 🏅💚 #nothingfortheswimback #TNT

Accept it and do not expect it. If you go into anything with the attitude of being okay with struggle you will bring more effort than if you just expect it to happen.

Come join @ironclubathletics and myself while we help you move better with the help of @vulkanweightlifting and @crossfit503

Well @kaylor.hasbargen the hays in the barn buddy.

I've been lucky enough to work with Kaylor for awhile now. And while I've had some Jerry Maquire "Help me, Help you" moments when I get texts like "I did 100 Thrusters for time yesterday, almost got it unbroken" and I shake my head. I wouldn't trade workin with him for anything.

Kaylor is easily the hardest working and humblest athlete I've ever trained with. And the other great part is I also get to call him a friend. See you down in Portland boss, just about show time.

Use of a squat rack or a door jam to perform the 'metronome' scapular coordination exercise. To help with upper back strength and shoulder mobility! #shoulders #frontrack movment is called the Gene Kelly or the metronome due to popular demand.

@weightlifting_doc - When you play around with a strongman movement that was previously unknown to you! #duckwalk for adductor strength.
Cheers to @cohenry85 for the video inspiration!
@s_my_fit and @cowan.nicholas give this a go and post how it went!

Time is a human construct. Time is flexible. Time is moldable. Time is yours to control. When you run out of time on activities you love and enjoy doing it might be because you pissed away your time of exercises that served no purpose toward your goals. In my doctor scribbles and attempts at art I wrote "Priorities mold time to what is needed". So what are your priorities? You need to delete some events from your calender. Set deadlines on social events. If it your priority now something else can go or be postponed. #todayisagiftthatiswhywecallitthepresent #timelord #timeturner

Grit is a skill. Long term passion and persistence. Passion is not just bestowed upon you either. It is fostered, grown, and fed. You cannot simply follow you passion. You have to work at your passion and build it on your own! #growthofyourself #passionatepursuit

Last round doing TGU from the rack position. Anything that makes it feel like I'm training in 10x gravity to express the Saiyan gene in me! #vikingstrength #turksaremean @ironclubathletics gives the most fun when it comes to iron work!

The grass is always greener unless you're grateful for the days that suck the life from you!
I am not saying that it's all supposed to he happy go lucky. What I am saying is the suck is what makes you better! Hopefully all the students give 30 minutes to give this a listen!
#embracethesuck #grateful

Demonstrating the 'Elephant rack' here. Stumbled upon this when I was starting to lose my front rack while performing rack marches. Biggest risk here is the thunderclap of your head between the bells! That advice to not crush your head is from @ironclubathletics the hardest working man of iron I know! Stay tuned for more performance based support! Always fun to remember the sugar bowl incident while training to be better! #footstepsfalco #shanefalco #sugarbowl

Getting back into the swing of the competition lifts here! 130 kg while in the @vulkanweightlifting Training hall!
Stay tuned for more from @milwaukiespine and performance based support!

"Bully Wooly" modified from @adriannakara recent post and of course from the Pandora's box that is the birthday boys mind of @ironclubathletics

Kettlebell deads x12
More performance from @msathletics and remember to chase the wind!

Are you looking for some help with your competition lifts!? I will be at @strengthfarmpdx this Friday at 430 pm to help athletes move better and feel better! I look forward to working with you! If you have not had a chance to train at @strengthfarmpdx then you should give the community a visit and you will understand why they are one of the best training facilities in the Portland Area!

Life is hard.... "The Hard is what makes it great." - Coach Dugan #aleagueoftheirown
Accept that it can be hard. Accept that you might not like it. Accept that it will make you uncomfortable. Accept being stripped of your previous self. Accept growth.
Accept it. Do not expect it. After years of trying and pushing now feel comfortable in the uncomfortable. I chase the challenges. I lean into the wind. I know when I'm uncomfortable I'm going in the right direction. Sometimes that discomfort is overwhelming and we change course toward safety. Just as long as we realize we are resting for the next bout. Promise yourself to have the desire of the unattainable and chase the wind! #chasethewind #nothingfortheswimback

Moving the lifts once again after some time away. I'm excited to get them back in after some corrections to my own motion to give me more control and ability with the competition lifts.
More from @msathletics coming soon!

Practice your motions to become more proficient at all of them! Squat jerk for mobility. Split jerk for diversity! #anoldoldwoodenship
Be sure you vary your methods! Stay tuned for more from @msathletics and @milwaukiespine

When the sand bags aren't heavy enough modify your Turkish get up by not extending at the elbow. Still working the complex changing of planes and core stabilty. Stay tuned for more from @msathletics and of course join @ironclubathletics and myself @crossfit503 this Saturday from 9 am-1pm for the Agoge strength seminar. Check out the event Brite link in my profile!

Already posted this recently however if you want a big serving of humble pie then you want some sandbag TGU's in your life. However, give the previous core stability post a go from @bounceback_bros a roll!

Stay tuned for more from @msathletics
And Milwaukie Spine and Sport.

I'm a big fan of uni-lateral work. It makes the other side work harder to maintain stability and you can do twice as much volume! Taking a page out of the @crossfitkettlebell handbook and slanging 80 # for some scoop cleans!
Stay tuned for more from @msathletics and Milwaukie Spine and Sport.

Due to a smaller build up for planning of this seminar we are dropping the time from 8 hrs to a rapid and efficient 4 hours going over the same power and performance instruction of the Olympic lifts and Kettlebells to get you stronger and more mobile!
Check the event Brite link in my bio for more information!
Your instructors will be myself and @ironclubathletics lead programmer for Northwest Strength and Performance; lead instructor for Crossfit Kettlebell and Earl of the Iron Born!

Those looking to become better with the bell! Sign up on the event Brite link in my profile. This course will go over the Olympic lifts and many different kettlebell moments. July 15th 8-4pm!

Time to get stronger. Time for Bag TGU...want to learn how? Check out @ironclubathletics he's the coach with the plan to get you slanging iron and he'll be instructing this great movement next Saturday @crossfit503 during the Agoge strength seminar!
Stay tuned for more from him and @msathletics while we all continue to get you more resistant to mediocrity!
