petitefi What happens when you test your deadlift after an 8 month sabbatical from the gym and you've lost 20lbs?

Your positioning looks like shit but you still manage to pull 325lb off of 4 inches

Strength sticks around longer than you think. You can always get it back Now go lift something

  •   ghini Come back to instagram 2mon
  •   5um3rchar1ynn Mic drop lol I've been saying this for a while. As a big girl I appreciated the ads that displayed a plus size model with the tag line "this is what a real woman looks like". Then it occurred to me that not every skinny girl or model is in the bathroom throwing up to be that way. And in that moment I realized that while it isn't fair to discount fat girls for being fat, it also isn't fair to discount really skinny girls for being really skinny. They are just as real as I am. Cause the fact is, what makes me real is not my flesh and bones but my spirit and my soul. 2mon

Be conscious of your effect on the world. Make it pure and positive.

petitefi I've made a lot of changes in my life in the past few months. Evaluating your center and exposing your heart has a tendency to do that.

I'm headed down a new road. A better road. One that I fell safe on.

It's easy to place your marker in the sand and declare your place - what's hard is stepping back and looking at it from another view. Just because you once felt one way, does not mean you must ALWAYS align with those thoughts.

If we never look back, we can never move forward and are stalled in eternity.

Take a moment to reevaluate. Are you TRULY happy in your life today? Even if it made you happy yesterday does not mean you shouldn't change for tomorrow.

  •   abbail3y Funny how things work. I literally recently just started making radical changes in my life. Relieving myself of toxic weight on my life. Struggling with looking back; seeing a person I don't care to relate to anymore. Yet moving forward toward a better me. Crazy timing. I've followed you for sometime now. Randomly at 1am, actually stop to read a post, instead of aimlessly scrolling like a zombie we all are now. In a nutshell, thank you. Very well put. Wishing you all the best this holiday, and to continued growth and true happiness in 2015. 1mon

petitefi Dinner in 15 Seconds Flat!

Tossing a whole bird into a crockpot is one of the simplest methods for perfectly cooked chicken meat as well as a great way to start your first homemade bone broth!

Stuff a whole chopped onion (or apple) into the cavity of the bird to help keep it moist

Cover with seasoning! Here I used lemon wedges, basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary and some salt. This is totally modifiable so experiment with flavors!

Perhaps mash up some garlic and tuck it into that slippery bastard

Put a lid on the whole thing

Turn the heat on low and cook for 6 - 8 hours or on high for 4 - 5. You'll know it's done when the meat is falling off the bone.

Voilà! Dinner for two WITH left overs for lunch in less than 10 minutes (or 15 seconds in IG land)

Scrape all that meat off and keep all the cartilage & bone in the pot with the juices for a tasty, gut healing broth - coming up next

Enjoy!

petitefi 185lb bar weight + 266lb chain weight for an aprx 415lb top weight sumo Deadlift.

Not all the chain is lifted off the floor therefore it's not the true 266lbs at the top.

Working on strengthening my hips and posterior chain especially my hamstrings!

petitefi Hey you! How much ya bench?

If you're bench press is quite literally weak and/or if you need to get stronger in your overhead, try out this little accessory move for strength & hypertrophy: the JM Press

This is a tricep exercise invented by JM Blakely (a 700lb bench presser!) that is a hybrid move of a close grip bench press and a lying tricep extension. Added into your routines after a bench or upper body focused day, you'll get some much needed tricep work to help you lock out those big weights.
Lie flat on the bench just as you would in order to bench press with your feet firmly on the floor. Using either a standard barbell or an EZ curl bar, hold in a narrow grip at arms length (fully extended), elbows in, just as you would in the starting position of the bench press. Lower the bar in a controlled manner to just above the sternum. Rotate the elbows up allowing the bar to roll back towards the neck/chin. Keeping the elbows in, press the bar back up into the starting position.

Start with a lighter weight and higher reps to feel out the movement itself then go for strength and try out 2 to 3 sets of 3 to 5 reps with something heavy!

This is how I'm going to bench 200lb keep up
