krissymaecagney A very happy birthday to my dear friend and powerhouse of a female, @lil_riki_ (it also just so happens to be #WCW). Riki started as a client, was my first @doughnutsanddeadlifts sponsored athlete, then came to be one of my closest friends. It's rare that I find a female whom I trust and can always rely on. Thank you for everything, Riki. Me loves you! (In honor of her birthday, 20% all @doughnutsanddeadlifts orders with the code "lilriki20" until midnight EST tonight). 1d

krissymaecagney Last full day in Croatia was spent at Krka National Park. Hiked, frolicked in the waterfalls, swam, hiked some more. This trip with @dcanavero has been nothing short of amazing and I'm coming home even more centered than before. @savageswim @brute.strength @doughnutsanddeadlifts @black.iron.gym 1d

krissymaecagney Got to train at @crossfitsplit today in Croatia. Had an all around rough lifting day from what I can only assume was a product of lack of sleep paired with jet lag. Squats moved like shit, and pulls felt heavy. When I have a less than stellar training day, I try to end it on a more positive note by doing what I'm best at: conditioning. Topped of my programming with 5 rounds of:
10 OH walking lunges (95#)
20 double unders
Not enough volume to destroy me, but just enough to challenge me. I love pairing a weakness with a strength when I program my metcons as it has helped me develop into a more well rounded athlete. I also like my metcons like I like my life: uncomplicated.

krissymaecagney I love cooking, even when on vacation. I don't really do hotels when I'm out of the country, I stick with Airbnb in order to be able to do things like: cook, do laundry, etc. I absolutely LOVE grocery shopping in non-English speaking countries. The thrill of having no clue what I'm buying is the best; intuitive grocery shopping where my label & ingredient reading skills are truly put to the test. After a 6mi hike, swim in the Adriatic Sea, and a quick lift at a local gym, I decided to cook instead of eating out to ensure I got adequate carbs & protein in. Simmered chicken breast with mushroom in balsamic vinegar and threw it over couscous with a fried egg. Paired with an arugula salad. (If you want to see my Croatia photos that don't involve food or lifting, most of them will be on my personal feed @krissy_mae.) 7d

krissymaecagney Leftovers egg white frittata. Took leftover sweet potato, lean brisket, and green beans from last night, threw it in a skillet, then covered it in egg whites and let it cook. Cooking isn't hard. Keep it healthy, keep it simple, eat like an adult 90% of the time. Quick post workout meal (@dcanavero made me do the @brute.strength interval weight training on my rest day at 7am, yuck) and we are off to Croatia! 1w

krissymaecagney Pulled 328 for 5 singles this morning (a little bit more than initially programmed because I shit the bed and loaded the bar wrong). New DL technique is finally working in my favor! I failed rep five twice and about gave up for the day, but then remembered I ain't no punk bitch and locked it out on the third try. But in all seriousness, something I always tell people is to let the bar feel heavy on the days training feels a bit rough. Lifting isn't supposed to be easy and when I find myself getting upset that the bar feels heavier than it should, I remind myself that it's part of the process and letting a training day defeat me is completely out of the question. @koenreichpowersystems @poweredbyicecream 2w
  •   danielnedelcu @krissymaecagney so in these competitions, how do you fair against ladies about your weight class. 328lbs seems like an incredible weight to lift 1w
  •   krissymaecagney @danielnedelcu I'm not very strong on a national level. I do well in state competitions, but most girls in my weight class pull over 400, some in the 500s. Crazy because I compete in a tested, drug free federation. There are a lot of really impressive ladies in the @usapowerlifting. 1w
  •   danielnedelcu @krissymaecagney honestly, you blow me away..I've been in the gym for two years, 5 times a week, never seen any woman able to do what you do and still look like..an attractive woman. Why powerlifting instead of crossfit competition? Aren't you more prone to back injury doing what you do? 1w

krissymaecagney @savageswim butts drive me nuts! Severe separation anxiety from my squad. It's always refreshing to be put around strong, ambitious, like-minded women. I'm very thankful to call each of these beauties a friend and I look forward to what all ladies have in store this year. @_lewest is opening her own gym, @jackie585 is traveling the world, and @chuckiewelch @livinpaleo @colleenfotsch are all professional athletes gearing up for their debit seasons with the @gridleague. How'd I get so lucky to be on this team?! Thank you @mamadeeez for including me on your athlete roster, I couldn't have asked for a more inspirational team. 2w

krissymaecagney Non fitness related post. Sometimes I like to get personal with you guys as lifting and eating is a very small portion of my life.
I am very fortunate to be able to say that I got to spend two years finding myself in the heart of Manhattan during my mid twenties. I moved here in 2013 and will be gone by the end of the year. I splurged on my place (hello private roof top terrace), I lived life to the fullest, and I found peace with myself. As many of you know, I own a gym back home in Nevada, @black.iron.gym, and I get a lot of comments asking what I'm still doing in NYC. When it came down to asking myself where I want to end up permanently, opening a gym in Manhattan didn't seem practical as my family is in Nevada and the man I plan on spending rest of my life with has roots there as well. I didn't see longevity in the city-despite my efforts to fool everyone into thinking I'd be here for good- and a few factors weighed heavily on my decision to open to the gym in NV opposed to NY... like affordability haha. I'm still in NYC because my other business, @doughnutsanddeadlifts, (aka my "baby") was founded here and is currently based here. We will be relocating it to NV as well at the end of the year. It's hard. I'm good at making my life look easy because I want to be positive, but it's usually not easy. Owning and operating two businesses from separate coasts has been my biggest challenge yet; but waking up to read on my roof on mornings like this allows me to reflect on this crazy life and give thanks for the people who love and support everything I do. The combination of hard work, my sobriety, my team, and sheer determination to not be the person I was for many years have allowed both businesses to flourish despite me always having to be absent from one. Today I am thankful. I'm really going to miss this city, but bigger things are in store.
(Thanks to @mamadeeez @savageswim for the mug)

krissymaecagney What's worse than pulling 305 for 6 reps at 6:30am on a Sunday while on vacation in Florida in July? Nothing. Nothing is worse. Got the work in with @colleenfotsch @chuckiewelch @livinpaleo and @_lewest bright and early this morning at @theacademy.fitness. Now it's time for more @savageswim fun in the sun all day.
