krissymaecagney Doesn't get much better than beach fruit + lime juice + chili powder. #RestDayBestDay with @michelehorn330 and @ceekayjones. 2w

krissymaecagney Made it to LA in one piece. Was my first time towing a trailer and I didn't kill us. First stop: @barbellbrigade with @michelehorn330 and @megsquats for some raw dog front squats. Get it? Because I didn't use protection. 2w

krissymaecagney Pause deadlifts are my least favorite thing ever. I would rather pull from a 2 foot deficit. My sticking point is just below the knee, so coach is having me hang out there for a while and make myself at home. I hung out here 8 times today with 295# on the bar. Gross. #HairFlipsAndDickKicks

krissymaecagney 311# squat from this week's training. I eat to perform. I can squat well over double body weight because I provide my body with the appropriate amounts of protein/carbs/fat from a variety of sources. I listen to my body. I prefer a mentally sound approach to nutrition opposed to a restrictive one. What does that mean to me? To indulge in moderation when my body wants it. Most of the time I eat grass fed meat/poultry, fish, veggies of all kinds, nuts, oats, eggs, etc. Sometimes I have a doughnut. Sometimes I have ice cream. Today someone said "doughnuts aren't good for you", but what that person is failing to see is that hundreds of thousands of women have an eating disorder and food shaming is incredibly wrong. We need to be progressive in order to internally heal ourselves of disordered eating habits. Maybe that one doughnut prevents binging on a dozen of them. Perhaps that one doughnut brings that person joy and keeps their nutrition on point 95% of the time when they aren't treating them self. Doughnuts (or any food) aren't what's "bad"; over consumption is. Over consumption of anything is bad for you (alcohol is a great example in this situation). There is a huge psychological component of both training and nutrition that often gets overlooked by uneducated and ignorant people who criticize things that they haven't even attempted to understand. There are better ways to educate than to proclaim, "doughnuts aren't good for you". As a sports nutritionist, athlete, and educator, I encourage you to look at food from its make up opposed to labeling it as "good" or "bad". If you're training hard, you WILL need more calories, likely in the form of carbs. Eat what you want in moderation, don't let food have any control over you, and don't let anyone tell you what they think is "bad for you". Take care of yourself and treat yourself. EAT LIFT LIVE. 2w

krissymaecagney 150# for 10 clean singles with long pauses. I think a human head could fit through this arch... do I have any volunteers? 2w

krissymaecagney When one photo can sum up an entire friendship: Bikinis. The desert. Atlas stones. Confusion.
Me: "What the hell are we doing?"

krissymaecagney The @mbslingshot isn't only good for benching, it's great for learning solid movement patterns for double unders. I have always struggled with connecting my dubs, but coaching cues from @mustbeaikin along with wearing the slanger backwards when I practice have helped me stay upright and keep my arms down and closer to my sides.

krissymaecagney Made a romantic dinner for the wife, @chlojonsson. Eating low calorie and high volume means more room for a little bit of ice cream later. If you want a sexy rig, you need to eat like an adult 85-90% of the time. Six ounces of grilled mahi-mahi, boiled then puréed red cabbage (blended with garlic cloves and coconut oil), broccoli, cauliflower, and sriracha war paint. No fucking clue why purple vegetables are called "red". 3w

krissymaecagney 295# for relatively easy doubles. I'm an incredibly mediocre athlete and I'm 100% ok with that. This is a hobby and one of the many things I enjoy doing. My happiness is not predicated on how much I can lift or how fast I can fitness.

When I jumped back into CrossFit full time about 5-6 weeks ago in addition to powerlifting, all my PL buddies made fun of me and told me to get ready to "lose my gains" (lamest saying ever, I mind you). Well when you know how to adequately nourish/fuel your body, have a good PL coach who understands that CF isn't the devil, and have solid CrossFit programming, you lose no strength. None. Especially when you are mentally and emotionally confident in yourself as an athlete. Approach training with balance and don't dig your own grave by overdoing it.

I do not do any of this for "gains"... I do it for fun, to inspire others to be the strongest version of themselves they can be, and to stay sober.

krissymaecagney Have hobbies outside of lifting and fitness. Learn new things. Read a lot of books. Talk to strangers. Be outside often. Explore the world. Build relationships with great people. Don't let your raw total, your BF%, or placement in the CF Open define anything about you as a human being. 4w

krissymaecagney 285# for a solid double. People ask what I think about when I approach a heavy barbell. Simple: "Just let it feel heavy and don't be a bitch".

krissymaecagney Haven't posted one of these in a while. Bench is slowly coming back strong. Hit some easy 142 doubles today for 5 sets. I think benching three times a week and a metric fuck ton of accessory work is finally paying off!
1- Yes, I know my butt came off the seat
2- Yes, I know there's mega side boob going on
3- Yes, I know I am wearing slides with socks
4- Yes, I know this looks bad for my back

krissymaecagney Thursday "rest" day meant a pool workout with @chlojonsson. Swimming at elevation... woof. Now bring on the uncontrollable hunger that comes with 35 mins of lap swimming. Where are the cheeseburgers???

krissymaecagney Solid training day with @that1legmonster at @blackirongymnv. Hit 275# skwaats for doubles then 315# rack pulls for triples. KC ate like 14 pounds of sushi then 8 doughnuts and is my new hero. Sure he can pull hundreds of pounds on one leg which is impressive and all, but his appetite trumps everything.

krissymaecagney I still pull from the floor, I swear. After I shit the bed with my deadlift at my last meet, I knew there was a lot of work to do. I've been pulling from a deficit every week since and it's been humbling to say the least. I'm incredibly weak from the floor so for me to pull 300 for multiple singles from a deficit today brought me a lot of happiness. I walked into the gym today expecting failure but having @sarah.lifts on the platform next to me was pretty motivating.

krissymaecagney 255# for triples. Didn't feel like doing cardio today so I didn't put my knee sleeves on. Unleash the comments about my hip thrust and mismatched shoes. 😴😴

krissymaecagney On this episode of "I'm a giant weak sauce pussy", we have thrusters. My least favorite move ever when there's actual weight on the bar. I bitched out not once, but thrice because my overhead strength is incredibly unimpressive. What I lack in overhead strength I also lack in dance skills. Here I demonstrate both for your viewing pleasure.
