I recognise I’ve been quiet recently but that’s not the case. My coaching business continues to grow and clients are doing really well.
My controlling focus has been Platform Ready which to think only a year ago almost to the day we started producing samples then went on to launch in March this year! It’s been an insane journey so far and what started as creating myself some clothes for me has become something much more than that it’s now a lifestyle. To be around lifters constantly is incredible and to be around lifters we sponsor of the standard they are is a dream especially as they are so grateful for the support in a sport that receives nothing in terms of funding.

However let’s not forget that I have a day job and a tough one at that. I head up a highways design division that takes up more than 40 hours a week regularly. I changed jobs last year and earlier this year my boss left leaving me to get on with things. That’s great but we didn’t have much work so I had to work my ass off to keep it alive and keep my job! However in the last week things have turned and we are flying and the future looks bright.

With a lot going on and some potentially huge news for Platform Ready coming soon things continue to move forward. Now let me tell you this shit ain’t easy, I don’t stop at all and the one person that keeps me going and sane is @lynette_rice2 she really is my rock. Ain’t no chance shit like this is possible without the support of my amazing lady!

There doesn’t need to be a point to this, I just want to say anything is possible but trust me it takes hard work and sacrifice! I’m my case my training is my sacrifice but I’m ok with that for now. Do what makes you happy because this shit would be a drag if I didn’t love it!

Having a blast this year with Fifa 19! First year actually playing online started in Div 7 now in Div 4. Still learning but actually enjoying some down time!

Is that a little bit of leg drive we are seeing here! 180kg single.

Thank you to @wookielifting for the safe hands.

Today was band work, working on line and leg drive. 160kg plus reds which felt brutal.
-
180kg after this was failed due to lack of speed and leg drive. Working on the weaknesses!

Well today was speed work and everything moved very fast until this set which was 180kg plus purples that give around 20kg ish I think, who knows it could also add around 400kg and I’d never know.
-
It’s time for some fellas work and I need some scales for bands to review tension loads.
-
Oh and still no leg drive 😂😂😂

Had a chat with @wade_smith_doughnotts the other day about taking a step back, looking at where you’ve come from and enjoying it as well.

Well that’s one of three bottles of kraken drank (it’s taken months to drink 😂😂)
-
How often do you stop and look how far you’ve come?

Final session of the initial peak which ended with 230kg block press. Soft lock out so no lock out!
-
I’m struggling to get my line to blocks when using leg drive and when I concentrate on line I sacrifice leg drive.
-
Rather than keep working on this and it not click next week we start heavy band work. Leg drive and bar speed is a must so we bring it together.
-
I’m working on 3 week blocks right now for bench whilst my ankle settles back down after a flair up.

-
180kg for a triple, no sink and tough.

Safe hands from @amandakins2

220kg board press. Board press has been and will always figure in my training as the middle range of the rep is my failure mechanism.
-
If I bench from my chest the bar speed carries me through this sticking point a lot of the time due to leg drive and lat activation. Boards really help me maintain the correct path for heavier weights and this transfers over to my standard bench work within the 90-100% areas. I do however struggle to get my legs driving hard on boards.
-
One thing I’m doing now more than ever, working hard on areas I’m not good at rather than doing the stuff I’m good at and not progressing.
