@chasingkgs must’ve been working on some new coaching cues while I’ve been working on getting fat cuz snatches felt smooth today. 5x3 at 42kg (1/18 of BW) and 5x5 strict presses at 35kg.
Aannnddd the 10s have begun. If you’re scared of doing sets of 10 I recommend taking a bite of a poptart right before you start, then concentrate on chewing it through the entire set, makes the reps go by much faster IMO. yer welcome. @chasingkgs
First time doing a massing diet w the help of @jason.shields after cutting to and maintaining around 62kg for 8 weeks. Most days I feel fat AF but SOME days I feel πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ alright ok alright. @chasingkgs
Throwback to my third competition, moments before I shared the platform with one of my favorite people and biggest lifting inspirations @ladybug_11 while being coached by my friend @nextlevelweightlifting, also one of the most talented lifters I’ve ever met. Brooklyn is where I met my first wonderful big lifting family and I miss training at all the different gyms and seeing the same people at the local meets up there. I love weightlifting because it brings people together who have a passion for sport, regardless of competition total or athletic background. Training around likeminded individuals is one of the best gifts weightlifting has given me. Missing my New York and Nola training family today. Love you guys, you know who you are πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€ @chasingkgs #USAW
Went for an ugly lifting face PR at 5x4 pawssss deadlifts at 90kg/198lbz and some 5s skwattts up to 91kg/200lbs (85/187 in the vid). @chasingkgs #powerlifting #weightlifting #donuts🍩 #hai #itme
Swipe right to see how obnoxiously I loaded the bar for these πŸ˜‚. Just over here triggering the OCD weightlifters πŸ™ƒ. 5x5 block pulls at 115kg/253lbs and a single at 125kg/275lbs. 275 is the most I’ve ever pulled, now I’m curious to see how much I can pull from the floor...excited to see where my strength is once I get back into the classic lifts in 2 weeks. @chasingkgs
5x5 @ 85kg/187lbs with a 5 SECOND PAUSE. That’s 25 seconds at the bottom of the squat to reminisce on what life was like before your coach decided he wanted you ded. Split my workout in half so I could get some extra sleep, 5x5 bench and #pullsumoeatbutt from a deficit tonight. πŸ˜ƒ @chasingkgs #weightlifting #powerlifting #squat
Final set of 6x4 at 85πŸ”‘/187πŸ‘ŠπŸ½ back squats with a 5 second descent. Ditching the lifting shoes for a while to focus on fixing my flat little feet, trying my hardest to keep my knees out and glutes firing. Crazy you can see how tight my left shoulder/pec is in this video by how low my elbow is. Luckily I have an appointment with @pjbernhardt at @premierrehabdc next week πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½. @chasingkgs #weightlifting #powerlifting #eleikosport
What goes through your head right before you set up for a lift? Are you calm or hyped up in the warm up area before a competition? πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­πŸ’­

Just some paused deadlifts for 'murica. There seems to be a discrepancy between what I consider a pause and @chasingkgs considers a pause 😜😜😜 maybe I'll get it right tomorrow. 5x5 at 95 πŸ”‘/209 πŸ‘ŠπŸ½. I love #powerlifting and I wanna do it all the time @platinumpowerlifter @joshzog @jake_daddy504 @fluffzaddy504 @jtrapani

Back to work. First day of strength cycle aka death day. Some "light" pause squats 5x5 at 185. #sendhelp @chasingkgs
Today I went 1/6 with a 70kg clean and jerk opener and three misses in the snatch. For those of you not familiar with the sport...that's not good lol πŸ˜‚. But I had an awesome time and I'm so happy I came out to Michigan to compete!! No excuses for my performance today, my head just wasn't in it 100% but I had so much fun and can't wait to get back to training!!! Thanks to the fam @nquadzilla for helping me and for bringing literally an entire bag of ammonia tabs and a cooler full of candy. Next time we gonna crruussshhhhh it @chasingkgs πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺ🏽😬
Lifting tomorrow at 10 AM EST on the Blue Platform in the 63kg D session. Link for the live stream is in my bio. πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€ #chasingkgs πŸ“·: @liftinglife
Training today sucked but dis was pretty cool. 1kg snatch PR at 61kg/134lbs. I'm not impressed by this number and you shouldn't be either but I do appreciate signs of progress no matter how small. But like can I just snatch 65kg already please that would be great 😬. This makes a 10kg increase in my snatch since I started working with @chasingkgs less than a year ago. Not sure what to expect when I compete on Friday but I do plan on drinking πŸ‘πŸ½ all πŸ‘πŸ½ theπŸ‘πŸ½ beerπŸ‘πŸ½ after I lift. Eyyyyyy let's go @chasingkgs
Taking a rest day (bath house πŸ™πŸ½)to prepare for my last max day tomorrow at @5_rings_fitness before competition. I hope everyone's having a great weekend, are you homies lifting or resting or both? 😁πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ–€ #chasingkgs
Feeling in decent shape for Michigan. Worked up to 75kg/165lbs clean and jerk, 55kg/121lbs snatch and a 105kg/231lbs back squat single. The next week and a half is all heavy workouts so hopefully I don't die, the weights just keep going up from here 😈. Once I get fixed at @premierrehabdc on Thursday I think I'll be feeling πŸ’― % @chasingkgs
Since issa deload, I worked on some small fixes in the snatch with help of @chasingkgs and @yashakahn. The snatch has felt off and unstable for a couple of months now, and I respect the shit out of my coach for not pretending he knows all the answers and asking other people for help πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺ🏽. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into making me a somewhat decent weightlifter @chasingkgs 😁. Grand Rapids lehhhhgooooo #chasingkgs #weightlifting #snatch #snatched #cleanandjerk #aoseries
