Fuck this shit, I'm outta here.
From 6 days of training/week to 1 day this last week. Without being sick or anything, just tired and busy. That's the way life is I guess.
I might have needed this rest. Maybe I could've cut it shorter, maybe not. But regardless, I'll get back at it tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to it 👌
Attempted a PB 70kg squat tonight but didn’t quite hit the depth. Physically my body was ready but mentally I just couldn’t get there. Can’t win em’ all I guess, squat rack I’ll be back 🏋🏽♀️😵🔥🤘🏽
Thanks to @aleisha.wells.pt for always pushing me and for being a pretty 👌🏽 hype girl 😅
It’s safe to say that I am enjoying what these are doing for my handstand push ups, but I don’t enjoy doing them.
Paused HSPU in the concentric phase of contraction (1 inch off the floor, half way, top of rep) helps with the sticking points throughout the rep, making them feel smooth and easy!! @jst_competeprogramming #jstathlete
90kg BABY!!!!!! Wooooooooooh! Considering my goal for the end of the year is 100, I think I’m well on my way. I need to work on keeping my lower back more straight BUT STILL! 1 and a half of me that was mate! Well done to Rudi for pulling some insane weight too! @cfaldermaston @hstlmade #hstlmade
ANZAC Day hike today - taking cardio outdoors. Even though it was bloody hard work climbing up some of those cliff faces, I feel so relaxed this evening. Was nice just to be able to spend some time with my better half @frenchfries.to.killerthighs. It took us just under 4.5hrs and there were some amazing scenes ⛰🌲🍂☀️🏃🏽♀️💦
Taking time off from training is giving me time to review a few things, and one of those is confidence with big lifts 😅
@victoriacharlotte_fitness made a great point about mentality dictating the weights that you lift, rather than your actual capabilities 🤷♂️ if you look at the second image, the bar gets more than high enough for me to drop under it 🤨 but I didn’t believe I could so I didn’t 🙈
It took me a long time to break the 100kg mark and a few of these things helped me out when progressing 😎
1️⃣ Do the related lifts - knowing that I could front squat more than 100kg for reps gave me the confidence to know that if I dropped underneath it then I could get it up 🕺
2️⃣ Not hanging around on the bar - take time in your set up to go through the cues you need to hit, but once you get to the bar don’t psyche yourself out by overthinking it 😓
3️⃣ Don’t think about how heavy it is - the main reason I missed this lift is because I told myself “holy shit, 105kg is heavy as hell” 😂 I told myself I wasn’t going to lift it before I even set up for it 🤔 With the 100kg PR I didn’t give myself a choice, I knew I was lifting it and I did 😎
Second day on the @teamtrainingprogramming was an absolute killer. ———————————————————————— Started off with a Back Squat PB of 132.5kg. 🏋🏻♂️.———————————————————————— Followed by 10 and 19 on the strict and kipping Hand Stand Push Ups. ———————————————————————— Finally killed off by the 10 Minute MaxCal Air Bike with a total of 137 Calories last photo being my sweat angel.
Today’s HIIT Circuit absolutely gassed my lungs. After round 3 I was so ready to call it quits but pushed on through and got the job done even if it took longer than I wanted it to 🙋🏽♀️✅
Thanks to @aleisha.wells.pt who almost killed me with this workout 😅🏃🏽♀️💦🔥
Workout tonight was inspired by @carrichey and the BIG Guys in one of his recent vlogs on YouTube.
Of course I modified the air bike for a @concept2inc SkiErg and DBall Front Squats G2OS 50lb Dballs.
Believe me, it was painful enough!!! #AdaptiveCrossfit#HSTLMade#ModifiedPain
