Me and my new sumo deadlift - it’s a thing! Lots of work to do on this, but happy that I’ve finally found the position that’s going to work for me and my outrageously long femurs! Thanks again for having us @australianstrengthcoach @basebodybabes @basegym @manletmorrison #girlswholift #deadlift

When I was 16, I asked my Mum to pay for a surgery that would widen my eyes because I was tired of being teased at school for being Asian. .
For 4 years in my 20's I struggled with eating disorders allowing my weight to drop to a staggering 53kgs (at 165cm in height). I was obsessed with being skinny.
I always hated having broad shoulders and bigger arms - I thought it made me look manly and ugly. .
Now my broad shoulders are going to help me win a world title. I can put my own bodyweight above my head and pull almost twice that off the floor and that shit makes me feel pride. After a life time of being programmed to believe that I'm not perfect enough, I finally love the body that I have and all that it allows me to do. .
I can't go back and tell my younger self not to worry about all these things. But what I can do is continue to be grateful to be living in a time where, more and more, strong, fierce and unique women are valued and respected. .
Shout out to my GRRRL @kortney_olson - who continues to inspire and educate the next generation of women - who refuses to photoshop her companies models - who is here to change the game. My life wouldn't be this whole if I had never met you 💙

Yaall. I made James take a video of my last deadlift hexbar set. The blisters on my feet were killing me so I was standing funny. My hands hurt. So many hilarious faces were made. But I finished a full set of 10 reps (5 total sets for that exercise).
Overall today was fun. I just went quick and heavier since I likely won't be able to go tomorrow and the gym was closing. I'm already sore.
Here's what I did today:
Bench: 95 lbs, 4 sets of 10
Hex Deads: 155 lbs (70.3 kg), 5 sets of 10
T-Row: 90 lbs, 3 sets of 10
Leg press: 360 lbs, 3 sets of 10
Stairstepper: 5 min w/ leg lifts
Getting Timmy out of the well (fucking Timmy): 5 min

Killer leg day done ✅
@_jodeelee_ looking finer than a mofo with every passing day 😍

6 x 200kgs hip thrusts, I’ll take that! Last time I did weighted hip thrusts I struggled with 100kgs.
So I guess with commitment and dedication comes strength? 🤷🏼‍♀️
Here’s to more successful booty building days and lifting heavy shit!

Better than I was before

I’ve been staying busy the last couple of days. Upper body intensity yesterday, deadlifts, back and abs. Still no cardio other than walking,eating all the food!! 🥘 💪😍😜 #notyourcompetition #nocardioexperiment #notyouraveragegirl #160lbs #fivefeetfive #eatallthecarbs #eatallthefats #strongereveryday #gymlife #gymmotivation #workout #fitmom

On Friday, #wesquat ! Anyone else hit a hard leg day today?! No?! Just me?! I think I like legs so much on Friday so that I can walk around like a drunk baby giraffe on skates for the weekend and nobody is around to see the comedy (or agony) of the DOMS! And as always, R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) in support of our military members that are giving up their freedom so I can do my leg day in peace ✌🏻. Now excuse me while I use a handrail for everything 😬🤷🏻‍♀️

We love axels. And axles. 😍😍😍 @arielle_cocosgym - My Static Monsters prep is on track and I'm happy with how my lifts felt this week.
Axle Deadlifts 3 x 5 @ 130kg.

The most damaging game we can play in our fitness journey is the game of comparison. My goals are not the same as yours. Your PR is no less impressive than mine. Celebrate every success in YOUR journey. No matter how small.
I'm celebrating 315# for 3. The most I have ever repped. The last one is ugly, I know. But, it is there.

When you realize that there is no point in trying to explain who you are anymore, you take back your power.

“Let them judge you.
Let them misunderstand you.
Let them gossip about you.
Their opinions aren’t your problem.
You stay kind, committed to love,
and free in your authenticity.
No matter what they do or say,
don’t you dare doubt your worth
or the beauty of your truth.
Just keep on shining like you do.”

With all my friends posting their kids back to school pictures of or even the 1st days of Kindergarten pictures... Y’all been tuggin at the heart strings all week!! .
I love seeing the pure excitement on their faces, just makes my heart melt. .
But, it also makes me think back to when I was younger. .
I remember anytime the teacher said we were going to read something Popcorn style, wishing I would be invisible and no one would call on me. I am talking all the way through high school. . .
My mind didn’t process the words the same way as everyone else, so it made me a slow reader and I sometimes stumbled with words. I was teased, I was told I was slow, I was told I was stupid. .
To this day, I am still a slow reader, but my reading comprehension is above average. So something people thought was a weakness ended up being one of my strengths. .
I know what it’s like to be different, and just want to be like everyone else. .
My hopes is no kids experience bullying this school year, or ever for that matter. . .
But this something that is near and dear to my heart, if you are or anyone you know is being bullied, please reach to me or someone you trust! .
Don’t be afraid to be different! .

Happy FriYAY 🙌🏼⠀
Week 5/8 is done, and my face says it all 😂

What happens when you still have some left in the tank after a workout? You try that flip plate challenge thing...
Did it with my smaller plates first, and could have flipped all day. So... I grabbed bigger ones, and the challenge arrived. Concentration, timing, and finger tip grip is KEY. (These also are a heck of a shoulder burner)
Happy #FitFriday family!

Major sweat session happened this morning. It was hard, my heart rate was high even lifting those weights, hot through it and now I’m done for the day. One thing I love about the morning workouts is that I don’t have to sit and think about it all day long as to when I’ll get it in, or how tired I’ll be after my work day to do my workout. It isn’t easy to get up every morning, some days I hit snooze, but once I roll out of bed, drink my energize I’m ready to go. No more thinking about it for the day, no regrets if something changes and I can’t workout because one of my kids has to go somewhere, it’s dunzo.

Bench this morning benching with bands and feet up is tough AF 42.5kg 4x4 😩 and happy to be progressing with military press at 27.5kg 3x6 something so satisfying about holding the weight above your head like that I really like this move since tan @tattooedandstrong has been giving me lots of mobility work with my shoulders have been pain free which is amazing 🙌 and am able to do these again 💪🏻 #bench #militarypress #benchpress #grrrlarmy #girlswhopowerlift #squatbenchdeadlift #powerlift #powerlifter #britishfinals #gpcgb #phase1 #notyourcompetition #sharks🦈 #strongwomenmakewomenstrong #powerliftingmotivation
