Not in any order but here are some of my passes on the slackline. There are many not worthy of posting. Still can’t turn around and come back.... New goals!!
Opps that didn’t go as planned!
For months I had been slacking in the gym. . It's the first time in 7 years that I've found it difficult to find the motivation to workout. . I’ve still be going, but the inconsistency has caused a significant drop in strength and volume capacity. Sure, it's frustrating, but that's what happens. . I found my love again. . My good friend @libowhunter invited me to join him at @rideandclimb09 gym to partake in some Strongman training. . It's not just your standard squat, bench, dead (Don't get me wrong, I still love them). We lift stones, kegs, flip tires, drag sleds, find different ways to move enormous apparatuses, etc. Strongman shit 😜 . It's so much fun. . It's going to sound silly, but much like a dog, when I'm really happy, or excited, I wiggle. Strongman gives me the wiggles. Haha. . It's seriously some of the most fun I've ever had in the gym, and the people I lift with make it even better. (Seriously, y’all are great) . If you want to come try it out, hit me up. The more the merrier ❤️ . Peep the last vid. My shoulders are fucked, but I’m proud.
Last nights strongman session with @libowhunter heavy stones over the bar. Las video is 5-4-3-2-1 133# stone over the bar Alternating turns
Right after climbing I coached another strongman session with @branden @libowhunter @missyme314 Check out Mellissa flipping that super heavy tire in the last video
Strength based circuit training drives the best “cardio” results with optimal efficiency.
Sometimes something so simple can go a long way. Barb has improved so much at stepping over these hurdles. This simple exercise is forcing her ability to bend, pick up, and plant her legs while avoiding an obstacle and maintaining balance. Such a simple movement skill that we all take for granted.
Cardio + Strength + Power + Hypertrophy + Endurance + Pain
Just a usual Friyay night at @farmingdalebarbellclub
This may be the most intense set of chinups you’ll ever watch!! 👀 These midfied chinups are a great way to improve your vertical pulling strength and work your way up to regular chinups. ⠀ Mike has been killing it for the last year pushing his limits everyday he comes steps in this gym. He’s changed how he looks, feels, and moves through diet and strength training, and continues getting stronger and healthier than ever at 56 years old! ⠀ ⠀ Contact us to start your journey to move better, feel better, and get stronger now!!
Don’t overlook or underestimate the basics. Finished up my workout on this fresh beautiful day today with a few sets of close grip pushups to failure.
Slowwww-moooooo take-off going⬆️
Here’s Jeff executing some perfect 1/2 kneeling landmine presses. One tip for the landmine press (no matter the type) is to press through the weight and allow your torso to follow all the way through the direction the bar is pivoting. Wrist, elbow, shoulder, neck, and hips should finish in a straight line stacked directly under the bar. ⠀ ⠀ Check us out on Instagram @farmingdalebarbellclub and Facebook (Link in bio), and shoot us a message to find out how you can start your health and fitness journey at Farmingdale Barbell Club!

Repost from @lydiagall yesterday ⠀ “I started working out with @farmingdalebarbellclub a year ago today and I just wanna say thank you for everything, for teaching and supporting me, for introducing me to powerlifting, for helping me carry all those 50 pound bags of flour, for making me feel good about gaining weight, for reminding me I’m an athlete, for making me laugh, for challenging me and encouraging me, for the muscles and the veins and the stretch marks. Thank you for being the place I can always feel safe and strong, even on my darkest days. I love you guys 💚”
315x1 Front Sqwaat ⠀ ⠀
Here’s one exercise you need to be doing if you aren’t already! The KETTLEBELL SWING! Such an amazing functional movement to work the glutes and hammies, yet can take a little while to truely master. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #humpday #workout #kettlebell #fitness #personaltrainer #wednesday #power
Middle tri-set of Jen’s workout. Her back and neck have never felt better since she started going hard in the gym lifting weights 3x/week and learning how to properly create tension amd spinal stability, even with multiple herniated disks throughout her entire back and neck. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Contact us and learn how you can start your health and fitness journey with us at Farmingdale Barbell Club today!

Adding a dynamic twist to core work with Sprinter Situps. Perfect to integrate into a workout for Mike, an ex-division 1 sprinter, who has loved challenging himself with different exercises while really learning and applying the ins and outs of functional human movement. #humanmovement #sprintersitups #core #abs #training
Middle tri-set of mama’s workout last night. Her back and neck has never felt better since she started going hard in the gym lifting weights 3x/week, even with multiple herniated disks throughout her entire back and neck. ⠀ Trap Deadlift 4x6 Single Arm TRX Row 4x8ea Plank Up Downs 4x:25 ⠀ . ⠀ . #momworkout #functionaltraining #functionalfitness #backinjury #liftweights #healthylifestyle #exercisemotivation #strengthtraining ⠀
First powerlifting experience was a success for Lydia! Nervous system was a bit fried from deadlifts when her squat came around (went with the deadlift first to get the most out of it and truely expose things we will work on heading into the next phase) but nonetheless she hit personal records with every lift. DEADLIFT: 215 BENCH: 115 SQUAT: 185 ⠀ . ⠀ . #powerlifting #powerlifter #girlswhopowerlift #girlpower #strengthathlete #strengthgym #liftheavy #squatbenchdeadlift
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Constant progression with @jasen_kohli. Enjoying these Sunday arms days with @tmozzarella14
John killledddd everything this week after increasing his weight by 20 pounds for all lifts every session he came in. ⠀ Trap Deadlift 405x3+3+3 Safety Squat 315x6 Floorpress 225x10
275x1 PR out of no where today. Bench sets went 245x3, 275x1, 245x3, then 225x6
Here’s one less-boring way to get your cardio in and feeeel the burrrn! ⠀ My dude Tristan felt it after finishing off his total body workout with 6 continuous rounds of 10 Med-Ball Slams & 10 Med-Ball Chest Passes. ⠀
Farmer’s Carries and Sled Pushes to finish up the 6am crew. ⠀ Dan killed 4 rounds of 229 pound carries as a finisher. Lydia pushed the sled for 10 minutes to finish off her low-intensity recovery day.
This man has been absolutely destroying everything in the gym for the past few months! Here’s 245x10... 50 lbs more than last week (strength and nervous system starting to get back into it forreal now).
Shoutout to Barbell Barbs continues to put in the work 6am 3x/week. She killed these 70LB (145LB) prowler sled pushes to finish this workout!! And she’s only getting started!
Here is Brendan doing box squats. Why? ⠀ The box gives him an external point to know when to stop descending (slow controlled negative to parallel) where tension is needed to push up into the concentric portion. ⠀ The kettle bell was added (was doing body weight for the past few weeks) to offset him, force him to create some upper body/core tension, and add some load to stimulate progress.
Crankin up some sumos @ 365#. Gettin back to em after trap bar and conventional deadlift for the past 8 8months and it feels goooood.
Lydia taking the 55# kettlebell for a smooth swing last night for the first time... it’s just about half her body weight!
Sometimes you just gotta stop for a few seconds and embrace the suck... and pullup holds definitely suck (really really great for so many reasons)
Brendan banging out his last set of pushups during his first training session ever two nights ago! First on the list: Build and instill basic movement patterns and body awareness. 💪🏼💪🏼
Tempo squats... Control, stability, time under tension, and strength! Rob with 215#, Mike with 155#, and @smitellz pushing it with a top set of 255# (swipe to see). 💪💪💪
Yo goodmorning! Coming at you with a simple motivational tool I use sometimes and have done for years on and off to push myself from within and use intrinsic motivation, rather than extrinsic motivation. Give it a try and GOOOO HARDDD!! 💯
Dan pullin 405# for a killer PR!
Tempo reps for a great combo of TOT, stability, strength, path of movement, hypertrophy, and anxious pain and suffering... oh and some fun
The Single Barbell Pendlay Row... Played around with a different row variation and i like this one a lot. Stagger that stance, load the hip, grip it and rip it! 💪🏼🔥
Stickin to the basics and one of the best forms of cardio... sled pushes! Dan always killin it
Mike slays it every time he walks in the door. Less pain. More gain
Are pullups a struggle? Try this variation with you feet planted on the floor. Try to keep your arms, head, and hips in line using your feet as little as possible as you control yourself up and down.
Farmer’s Carries. One of the simplest, functional, and most underrated exercises hands down. These, or some type of weighted carry, should be incorporated into the majority of workouts whether it’s a warmup to get the juices flowing or for some conditioning within the workout.
Some 5 second eccentrics early this morning after coaching. Tension tension tension...
