Also stroked this 190kg/419lb bench today. This is 15kg/33lbs more than my current meet PR and is just 1kg shy of the current -84kg World Record. 😊😊😊😊😊 @usapowerlifting @theipf @beefpuffbarbell

All I wanted for Christmas were my legs back and Santa kindly delivered them to me early and then even spotted me for a set. 😊🎁🎅🏼 @lurchman76 -

Hmm I mean I wanted it a little bit above parallel but I'm not sure if it's too high, or the angle is just high on my tripod on top of a bench 🤔 Anywho 3×275lbs @ 9rpe pin squats when I was supposed to do SSB.. I remembered pin press from the last day and then I didn't look at my log and just went for more pins 🙈😂 #gym #fitfam #TeamRTS #southsidestrengthandfitness #powerlifting #girlswithmuscles #thickthighssavelives #flexfriday #57kg #usaplak #apemanstrong #liftangry #bukiya #SBD #reebok #adidas #baregrip #gangstawraps #engineeredathletics #strengthbydesign #EAstrong

97% (262.5kg/578lbs) moving as expected, and that was all I needed for this session in Atlanta on Tuesday night. 29 days to put everything together. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 thankfully no more overnight travel between now and my departure to the Czech Republic.

No rest for Lil Conda @randyhanson between Worlds, the Arnold, and then 2018 Nationals. #westaygrindin Quick work of 3 singles today at RPE 5-6: 227.5 (501lbs), 237.5 (523lbs), and then 242.5 (535lbs - video).

This weight was the American Record that I set in 2015 in my first equipped meet. #progress

Again with the dress trick because 1 article of clothing is easier than 3. 😉 @nordstrom what does the world have to do to get these dresses back on the racks? TIA.
#thirstythursday #ootd

...and repeat this cycle for 30 minutes. Not sure I’ll even be able to get into position in this thing to deadlift, but there’s only one way to find out. 🤪 @thevanillagorilla92

ALL TIME SQUAT PR 605. Just trying to run with the big boys. Smacked the rack on the walk out and took a second to settle but felt pretty smooth. Weighing a little heavy, sitting at 210 as of this morning. Thanks for the spot @caleb.powerlifting907.

BENCH GAINS, PR double at 295x2 then an easy but kinda sticky single at 315x1. For clarification, @nickfisherpowerlifting is making fart sounds as I’m lifting. I’m not actually ripping ass haha .

180kg/396lbs for an easy sangle.

Back to work. 235kg/518lbs 🤗 @thevanillagorilla92 #gorillasquad #asf2018 @randyhanson

Banded pulls felt good this evening. Had 405 lbs on the bar plus the bands. *

Throwback to feeling so thirsty that I almost drank from the faucet while I was washing my face. 😅 @aydin_tsa and I (I guess) have mastered my weight cut over the last few years and it’s very comforting to have a handle on that variable — even 4,000 miles from home. #thenutritionathlete @thestrengthathlete

Super light 5x5 front squats today. Front squats felt much better in the heeled shoe. *

The sign above this chair reads: “Reserved for those who have set World Records in international competition.” You can find me here. 😊

Honey I’m home! A few more days of unstructured training before beginning my training cycle for the Arnold Grand Prix on Monday. 😌 13 weeks is gonna flyyyyy! #gorillasquad #asf2018

500lbs close grip to a 2 board, this variation is right at my sticking point so it's harder than normal bench. Really happy with how these felt. •

Feeling much more normal after my first training session since competing at Worlds 10 days (!!) ago. Last set of 5x5 at 140kg, followed by 5x5 raw sumo (!?) and conventional deadlifts (3 sets sumo, 2 sets conventional). One more day of vacay before beginning the journey home. @thevanillagorilla92

This one. ❤️❤️❤️ @sarah_helenn does it all and I have reserved her as my forever right hand woman. She watches all of my boring training videos, gets down and dirty wrapping my knees, sets my bench shirt, and any other weird meet day request I have. She also happily does my makeup, my hair, and keeps me up to date on youngster trends. On top of all of that and most importantly, Sarah is an incredible friend and I feel lucky as hell to have her in my corner. #feels #fightmescott 😌

This photo gives me chills every time I look at it. I am the first -84kg female to break the 600lb squat milestone in @theipf, but at the end of the day, the milestone numbers don’t mean anything outside of some street cred. My focus is on MY personal progress and winning overall. I still would have been absolutely elated last week if I hadn’t broken 600 on squat, 400 on bench, and a 600 Wilks, but had come away with a gold medal overall. Records and milestones are not permanent... they are meant to be broken. There is a small handful of women in my weight class (and even lower classes *ahem* @priscillaribic) creeping up on 600+ lb squats in competition as we speak, and I hope they “join the club” so that we can all continue to push one another to improve. #wearejustgettingstarted #worldchampion

Some heavier SSB work 5x3 at 476.5 (kilo plates). Left the dark of Fairbanks to experience some Anchorage sunshine over the turkey weekend. .

Today, I am #thankful for this sport and everything it has given and taught me. Sharing the platform with gracious competitors like @heididenville is what makes international-level competition special. Heidi is among the women who helped paved the road for women in @theipf, along with @priscillaribic, @lianeblyn, Larysa Soloviova, and many more. I feel thankful every day for the bar they set (and continue to raise) for the rest of us. -

I am thankful for my coach, James Townsend @gatabarbell. We’ve been through a lot in the last two years — there have been bad meets, we’ve made big mistakes, dealt with injury and setbacks, and life in general. His support never wavered. I can say with confidence that this gold medal would have been a hell of a lot harder to win if it weren’t for James. -

My squat gold medal and 2 world records are for my brother, @randyhanson, who has shown up to almost every single squat day the last two years to wrap my knees. The most challenging thing about equipped powerlifting is pulling together a consistent crew. Randy has been a constant for me since I started this pursuit. ❤️ -

Making weight is basically effortless for me now, thanks to many years with @aydin_tsa holding me accountable (and listening to me complain). I believe eliminating as many variables as possible is important, especially when competing in equipment at the international level. Chris has mastered the process for me and I give him 100% of the decision making power in terms of my nutrition and water / sodium manipulation during a meet prep. -

There is an entire pit crew associated with a lifter’s success. Every person deserves personal recognition, but I’ll save that for offline 🙂 thank you to @sarah_helenn for fucking up my knees (they’re still torn up 6 days later), @bryce_tsa for so much moral support and keeping me grounded / focused, and to my training crew: @lurchman76, @matt_kileyak, @the_husky_one, and @jhlebechuk for keeping me safe (and humble 😉).

Boooo after nationals I was able to hit 330/8.5rpe.. now just 308/8rpe 🙁 Deads have not been on point last few weeks.. training the day after boxing ain't working real well for my grip 😭 Gotta shift squats and deads a day earlier..

685 for a top single tonight, finally able to use my new @texasstrengthsystems rack and squat bar! Not a PR by any means but I'm finally getting back into heavier weight! •

From a Facebook memory from 5 years ago. I believe this was my first or second powerlifting competition. Shortly after this picture this awesome man would take me under his wing and really teach about powerlifting. 4 sometimes 5 days a week he’d be there coaching me, all for the love of the sport. I consider myself very lucky to have met Ron and to have learned so much from him.

2017 has been a defining year. It’s the year I have dreamt of and always knew I had in me, but needed the time to put the pieces together. It took effort — both physical and emotional — but most importantly, I learned to focus on the things I can control. On Friday, I became a World Champion and broke 3 World Records, and I already can’t wait to get back to work (after enjoying the rest of my time in Europe).

Bad bitches of Team USA.
🥇🥇🥇 #worldchamps @priscillaribic @bubblypowerlifter

Would not be where I am today without these two, and we are just getting started. Here’s to the future! ❤️ #GOLDmedalcrew

I showed up today for one thing: a gold medal. Everything else along the way was secondary. It all still feels so surreal and I need a few days to gather my thoughts for a full meet recap, but I finished with GOLD and an IPF Open World Record Squat (273.5kg/603lbs) and Total (671kg/1,479lbs). Thank you to everyone for the support and the kind messages — you all are amazing. ❤️❤️ #worldchampion

@priscillaribic pulls a new World Record for the win! Another gold medal, another WR Deadlift and Total, and another absolutely clutch performance. The definition of #GOAT. ❤️❤️❤️ @usapowerlifting @theipf #teamUSA

Almost that time. My session begins on Friday at 10 AM Czech time (midnight in Alaska). Link to the live stream is in my bio!

Had fun training stones today at @northsidestrongman with @matthewsadler54 and @akmeow_meow . Hit the 18 inch 280 stone for a pretty easy single, then couldn't get the 20 inch 280 for lack of grip. Need to use tacky next time. •

With 3 days to go until the last big competition of the year American lifter Natalie Hanson @natalie.907 is setting her eyes on the big prize, gold at the IPF World Open Powerlifting Championships!

Hanson's nominated squat is 2kg more than the current World Open record of 260kg! She sits on top of the nominations with a total of 655kg, 35kg more than the nearest lifter. She will be lifting against lifters from nations like Ukraine, The Netherlands, Norway and Russia.

Current world records:
Squat - 268kg (by Olena Kozlova)
Bench Press - 191kg (by Liane Blyn)
Deadlift - 250.5kg (by Olena Kozlova)
Total - 670.5kg (by Olena Kozlova)

Awww yeaaaah pin squats 3×253lbs at 9 PRE 💃 I seem to train better on my days off.. when I actually get sleep 🤷🏽 #TeamRTS #gym #fitfam #powerlifting #girlswithmuscles #ThunderThighsThursday #57kg #usaplak #FeedMeFightMe #bukiya #SBD #adidas #baregrip #gangstawraps #engineeredathletics #strengthbydesign #EAstrong

Beginning Saturday, I am taking my first *legit* vacation in a bunch of years. I say “legit” because I have always still been connected to my work email while traveling (and had my work laptop in tow), no matter the purpose / duration of the trip. This time around, I will be gone for 3 weeks and will not have access to my work email (don’t worry @beefpuffbarbell — you aren’t “work” to me). It may sound liberating — and I think it will be once I get out the door — but this week has been a challenge. Tying up as many loose ends as possible and accepting that some things will just have to wait until my return has been incredibly daunting... *cue anxiety*. -
Fortunately, I have been able to temper bouts of anxiety by reminding myself (more like being reminded by my amazing friends) that I need to shift my perspective. I NEED this time away for me, for my mental health, and to ensure that I can keep crushin’ it when I return in December.
#deepbreaths #mentalhealth

I am ready AF. Now just a few easy workouts, pack, and travel across the planet. 🤩
#letsdothis #roadtoworlds #pilsen2017 #teamusa

700 as a 3rd attempt in February vs 700 as an opener in October, really proud of the gains I've made in this lift as it is my least comfortable and seems like it is always brutally hard. •

196.5lbs - 70% cardio reps for squats don't move as smoothly as deadlifts 😕 But then again I just flew in at 1230am then had work at 5am, did not really sleep too well 🤷🏽 @ross_rts I should just stop doing cardio reps..

Let’s just say, it’s a good thing my meet next week doesn’t involve raw benching cause 110kg/242lbs was @poopy every set tonight. 🙃💩 ty for protecting my face @bryce_tsa ❤️

Forgot I was working with reds, wondering why it felt heavier than normal... then I can't count 🙄 @ross_rts At least the rest of my cardio reps I did correctly, just not this set 😂 330lbs at 8.5 and 242x4 plus another 5 sets of 5 🤷🏽 #TeamRTS #gym #fitfam #powerlifting #girlswithmuscles #ThunderThighsThursday #57kg #usaplak #apemanstrong #ferocityamplifiespower #bukiya #SBD #reebok #baregrip #gangstawraps #caffeineandkilos #engineeredathletics #strengthbydesign #EAstrong

325 for an AMRAP of 18 today on bench. Bodyweight ~311 This morning. Weight is going down and this is the heaviest bench I've touched since the meet, volume phase is going well and I'm feeling better each day. •
