“It’s this place, isn’t it? It’s why you’re so strong,” a friend commented while we crawled through the woods of Exploits Island, hunting chanterelles.

She’s right.
This little resettled community in the middle of nowhere is has been the home to remarkable people; it’s a place for those with vision who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty with hard work.
Artists, craftspeople, chefs, fishermen, carpenters, merchants, and native people have grown in this place and I’m incredibly fortunate to call it home.
I grew up here on Exploits island in the summers and spent my childhood hauling logs out of the woods for firewood (the heat is a wood stove), carrying a 5 gallon bucket of water in each hand from the well (there’s no running water or electricity), lifting rocks and lumber, and walking or paddling everywhere (there are no cars). I helped Dad and Poppy build things, gathered mussels at low tide, jigged cod, split wood, built rafts out of washed up pulpwood, crawled through the forest with map and compass, skinny dipped off rocks into deep, still water, climbed trees, rowed boats and learned to move and be strong and to delight in that feeling.
And I have learned that reconnecting with that makes me stronger. And it makes my daughter strong too, as she carries and hikes and paddles and climbs.
I brought more weights down this year because sometimes it’s just fun to lift really heavy things without a plan when the day feels right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Like this one pictured.
But mostly I did the things I usually do on Exploits because I now realize that those activities create a strength that adds to what I bring to the bar the rest of the year.

They are where it started and where it comes from and if I keep sight of that I will keep getting stronger in a way that is uniquely me.
It’s a rare gift and one that I now understand more than I ever did.
I could never give it up, but it gets bigger when shared.

New Deadlift PR ✅
385 lbs 💪🏼 in the bag

Well, it wasn’t the prettiest lockout I’ve ever done, but I didn’t let go!! I even made a noise 👀 which I never do!! -
The best part is that during my warmup (aka all the other videos), everything was pretty much flying (especially 315) until we hit 365, which kind of got away from me a bit at the beginning xD and I got leg shakes! Which hasn’t happened in a while.
-
Overall really proud of myself, I’m excited to become part of the 400 lbs club in two weeks at easterns 💪🏼 definitely planning to go out with a bang 💥

Nothing like losing all your powerlifting equipment to make you thankful for the SBD knee sleeve struggle 🙏
.
#TravellingAndTraining I always take my lifting equipment as carry-on just incase my baggage gets delayed I can still get my gains 🎒💪 Cuz powerlifting priorities!
.
Somehow this time I was so sleep deprived and so excited to be home and get off that I completely forgot my entire lifting bag in the overhead bin of the plane 😱 Silly me didnt realize til I was safe and sound at home 🙄 NEVER BE LIKE ME.
.
Lots of late night phone calls and panic attacks trying to track it down with little luck. But somehow the lifting gods were on my side and my powerlifting pal Kyra @spicypowerlifter was working at the Calgary airport at that exact time. After randomly reaching out to her with my freak outs, during her middle of the night break she managed to find it and collect it for me and save the day. The powerlifting community is a powerful thing 💕 And I cant thank her enough! #GratefulGains
.
#LiftingAndLearning Keep your powerlifting pack and pals close to you, and never take your lifting gear for granted 😉 So thankful to have Inner Strength Products @innerstrengthproducts keeping me equipped and looking good through every adventure 🌎 .

I'm still exercising, guys. A lot has been going on, so I haven't been posting much lately. From getting a promotion at work, to weddings, to moving at the end of the month, to just enjoying the Summer.
Still lifting decent weights, still enjoying life.

Derek Ng (@deadlifding) smirks at the weight after his third deadlift attempt of 274.5kg in the Open 59kg class. He just missed the attempt, but had he made it it would have been a new Open and Junior World Record. ⠀

150lbs / 67.5kg bench doubles with my fav powerlifting pal @biggestben10

I train alone a lot, but especially for bench days my best days tend to be when I have someone with me that knows me and believes in me. That extra bit of calm and confidence boost can make all the difference to not rushing the pauses and staying tight 🙏
