🦄Rolling deep into unicorn world🦄 .

It’s been one hectic month so far. I have been spending a lot of time in nyc now that I am working at the @mffclubhouse which has been such a wonderful time!

And before my shift tonight, I got to hang out with my good friend @geoderice.
It’s been such a long time since we chopped it up but every time we get together, it’s always a glorious time talking about life and all the great things ThaT come with this gift

One thing he said that really hit me was that one thing we need to do more is go outside

And look up

When we look up, we see the sky

And the sky has no ceiling

That serves as a reminder that we have no ceiling either. So when we feel helpless, just go outside and look up

It’s a great reminder to me. Thank you so much for that knowledge bomb Geo!

I find it so important to be around great people like Geo

Because they bring out the best in us

Have a great Friday my friend!! #lifteachotherup

🤷🏻‍♂️WHAT COMES NEXT?🤷🏻‍♂️ .

I’m in an interesting phase of my life right now.

Where I decided to finally focus on me wholeheartedly
It feels weird because for so long, I have put so many people before me. Even when I was training hard and changing my life, it still didn’t feel like I was putting myself first

But this month, I took a huge leap and am now finding myself

I left many things I hold dear to my heart behind
But I know there is much more on the horizon

Things are uncertain right now.

And that’s ok
I have lived with uncertainty all my life
What I do know is that during this time

I’m coming alive
And in this new stage of my life

It’s become very exciting
Change is very scary

But thru courage, that change can become the best thing that has ever happened to us

☠️DO ALL THE DEADLIFTS☠️ I ENJOY SOING BOTH THE CONVENTIONAL AND SUMO DEADLIFT IN THE SAME TRAINING SESSION

I ALSO LIKE TO TRAIN DOUBLE OVERHAND WITH NO HOOK GRIP

A big reason why I do this is because I find it challenging.

I always find that the more of a disadvantage I am at during training,
Than when the day comes where I decide to compete, it’ll get much easier

What do you like to do in your training that exposes your weak points?

💥EMBRACE THE UNKNOWN💥

I have been thru a whirlwind these past couple of months.

I’ve had so much thrown at me that one feeling I have been accustomed to is being OVERWHELMED

Being overwhelmed to the point where like my world is crumbling.

But it’s also because of this feeling that I have found clarity

Of where I want to be, and who I need to become to step into the shoes of that person.

WHEN WE FIND OURSELVES AMONG UNCERTAINTY, WE MUST REMEMBER THAT AT SOME POINT, IT WILL MAKE SENSE TO US

And for me, that is something that I’ve been feeling ever since last May, when I went on that retreat to find myself

My fitness has increased

My body has changed positively

And now, my soul is becoming lighter

I still have a lot of uncertainty going on I. My life

But I know this

It will all be leading to something great

I just know it

So for now, I’m going to continue what I do best

Make people happy

And continue making myself a priority

Because I can’t be my best for others if I forget about myself

❤️BREAKTHROUGH❤️ Last Friday I took a trip out to Brooklyn to be a part of the new tv show BREAKTHROUGH WITH @lewishowes !
I only learned about Lewis through the mfceo podcast a few months ago and let me tell you how I immediately felt connected to him

When he was talking how his past experiences which helped him make some huge changes in his life, I immediately felt as if he was speaking directly to my soul

And a big reason why I wanted to to be a part of this experience is because he is such a positive light, that I just wanted to shake his hand for everything he has done for me emotionally.

It was a bonus to get to meet @jayshetty as well! He is like an Asian Zack Morris! Such piercing eyes☺️ It was a great experience that I’ll never forget and we all learned a lot in this hour of jay and Lewis speaking

That was a wonderful day!

🦄 RUNNING NEW YORK 🏃 .

TODAY WAS A GREAT DAY FOR A RUN

And it was even more awesome running in the streets of Nyc with my @nikerunning Approving me the game plan

I ran to the high line and around there and that was such a pleasure to run around all the people and thru the city.

The best part is that I KNOCKED OUT 3 MILES UNDER 1 HOUR!!! My pacing was much faster this time around and I’m so proud of how far I have come in 1 month☺️ I’m sliding into my grooving with running. And once my feet get stronger I know I’ll be able to push it a little more!
Happy Thursday!

🦄 TRAINING FOR GLORY🦄 .

This morning I got a chance to sweat a little bit at the @mffclubhouse before second day of orientation and it was glorious!

Swings and get ups were on the menu, but I felt like doing some big boy athletics☺️ So I got the jumping, and some fun kettlebell thangs

And of course, you got to end a sesh at Mark fisher fitness with a dance party.

It’s been a crazy week so far, but I’m loving every minute of it!

⛓WAGON UNCHAINED⛓ .

NOTHING FEELS MORE BADASS THAN DOING PUSH-UPS WITH CHAINS AROUND YOUR NECK AND BACK

Last week I wanted to work on a whole bunch of push ups

But doing it for reps is not fun to me

So when I saw these chains at @dieselgymnj , I had the bright idea to do a simple 5x5 with weighted push ups.

This was the last set
And was a lot of heavy ass weight!
Technique was a little off here but overall, I felt pretty awesome about doing push ups with around 60 lbs of chains☺️ THE ONLY THING THAT HOLDS US BACK FROM GREATNESS IS WHAT WE BELIEVE. NOT WHAT OUR BODIES LOOK LIKE

I love challenging myself
Because from challenge
Comes growth💪🏿 #bodypositiveathletes

🏋🏻‍♂️HEADLESS DEADLIFTS🏋🏻‍♂️ .

Now that I’m getting back into my deadlifts, I feel like my groove is coming back for technique
I like to always lift double overhand in training because it provides more opportunity for grip work.plus, I feel more badass when I do it this way. No hook grip. Just grip it and rip it

This time around, I’m doing both sumo and conventional. Let’s see how this experience goes☺️ Have a great Saturday!

🏃RUNNING BAREFOOT 🏃
The @nikerunning app told me to run 1.75 miles today

So I did run outside

And I did it in my minimalist shoes

It is way tougher than running in my long distance shoes

But I’m glad that my feet held up pretty well.

If it wasn’t for my calf cramping up, I would have done much better

But it’s another step forward

No pun intended

Another week down

Daddy’s gonna be running like Forrest Gump!! #nikerunclub

🏋🏻‍♂️YES I STILL LIFT 🏋🏻‍♂️ .

I know I post a lot of running pics

But here is a clip from this morning lifting session

I GOT THIS BENCH PRESS IDEA FROM MY GOOD FRIEND @gaglionestrength WHO IS ONE AWESOME POWERLIFTING COACH

Instead of using the typical bar for bench, I used the duffalo bar to do my bench work(which I always do paused reps in training). It allows for a greater range of motion in the bench which is awesome because I have short arms, so it helps me to work my chest a little bit better

And add in the @thompsonbowtie fatpad, which puts my shoulder blades in a good position to bench

And you have a recipe for a strong ass bench press!

This is 250 on the bar for 9 reps

And that was a little rough☺️ GETTING STRONGER AND FASTER!! #powerliftinglife
