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
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
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).
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!! 💯
