Goal was to grind out a triple @500lbs tonight but that third rep got me seeing birds and lightheaded as hell. Dead game felt strong and tonight was definitely one of my best sessions I’ve had in awhile. Maybe it’s cuz my gym partner @bigdaddyhazy bailed on me 🤔😂😂 #deadlifts#backattack#grindhardstayhumble#powerlifting
Its funny how life works itself out because 18 years ago I was at this same point looking out to a very similar view but in the twin towers with my dad and brother @cbar94 What I saw that day vs. now was from a different set of eyes, never would I have thought of half the things that I know now or understand the capabilities of my actions. Our thoughts and actions can lead us to some amazing places and also to do some amazing things. In this moment this was the after celebratory gathering from the JACK plane pull I was very grateful to be a part of this event with my team @dr.ivanpt and the 41st precinct Fort Apache 🙌🏼🙌🏼 We pulled a hella amount of weight (a damn 757!!) that day and helped raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer 🙏🏼 I look forward to the next one and getting furthering the cause, what a great event and great people 💪🏼 🙌🏼 #fitness#fitnessmotivation#aesthetic#aestetics#powerlifting#bodybuilding#crossfit#olympiclifting#weightlifting#strongman#physicaltherapy#training#muscle#gainz#DrBarrow

Last heavy single before my competition. Pulled 315 twice, second was a dog fight.. but I got it, and goddamn if I didn’t want it. Supposed to be a deload week but hey if you feel strong, you should lift heavy. So I did. .
65% front squat doubles from yesterday. Felt some weird muscle tension up under my scapula while doing these. Ultimately had to readjust my set up and roll the piss out of my back with a lacrosse ball.
Hoje foi dia de subir a carga no supino
Não sei porque mas toda vez que faço supino me empolgo e subo um pouco o peso kkk
Hoje o treino foi:
Na última repetição quase não subiu e acabei precisando de um toque, algo que indica que o peso não estava correto... Algo que tem relação direta a um teste de RM bem executado, como faz tempo que não faço nenhum, estou sem uma base sólida, mas semana que vem isso será corrigido!! Porém... Acho que tive uma evolução dês do campeonato de supino, e vou focar para melhorar cada vez mais 💪
Still working on sumo for #deadlifts .. Actually starting to feel pretty decent. Here's a little snip of my last set of 5x5 at 545lbs. Went beltless up until the last set. BW is sitting around 245lbs.
W5D2: Bench Press
Bench press @ 185x1x3; 190x1x2; 195x4x1
Close grip bench press
Bent over row
Chesticle tingssss. These FLEW up. I was actually really surprised. I guess my strength is coming back in for real. What a mood booster 😅 can’t wait to see what I bring to the table come June 30th. Let’s get it
Wrist wraps: @elitefts
I was kinda bad #tonight I shouldn't have gone as #heavy as I did, but I was feeling #strong
Worked up to heavy singles on #deadlifts
Definitely would be 🔴🔴🔴 for 585lb major kipping, but first time ever locking in out. So I'm #happy about that.
#honestreview of @rxbar’s NEW flavor, Peanut Butter & Berries! 🥜🍓
👉🏻Macros: 200cals • 25C | 7F | 12P
👉🏻Where I bought: @rxbar was nice enough to send these, but they’re available on their website!
👉🏻Comment below 👇🏻 if you've bought elsewhere for others' reference!
🤗 texture: typical @rxbar texture - if you haven’t had one, these date based so they’re very thick and chewy. This one has little chunks of peanuts (more so than others) and berries! See those little pink chunks?!
😛 taste: OMG this is a strawberry PB&J version of an RXBar. Wow I loved this flavor because both the peanut butter and berry flavor shined through. As well, this bar isn’t overly sweet. It reminds me of a peanut buttery, more chill version of the Mixed Berry flavor 😍 (which is like my 3rd favorite flavor)
🤔 would you do it again? YES YES YES. I *think* this bar may be my number 1 favorite flavor now 🙊 replacing Maple Sea Salt. WHAT! It’s just perfectly fruity and peanut buttery and I love it. 10/10!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Focus on what really matters!
Too often, when people start out, they focus too much on the little details rather than what will really make the biggest impact to their results.
Get to terms with fixing the factors that’ll truly make the greatest impact towards achieving your fat loss goals and stick to them over a long period of time.
MEAL TIMING is important but not at the expense of total CALORIES consumed. If your calories outweigh what you burn, your fat loss progress will coming to a halt.
SUPPLEMENTS are precisely that, to supplement not substitute. If you lack energy, prioritizing SLEEP, NUTRITION and HYDRATION will do more for increasing your energy than any Pre-Workout/Fat Burner ever will.
Nailing down the basics will do MORE than any of the little details ever will. You don’t have to be perfect because let’s be honest, this is the real world and nothing is ever perfect but seeking to improve and progress over time will get you the results you want.

Just another shitty day of deadlifts. Sharp impingement in my lower back made my deadlifts feel like crap again and made it real difficult to generate speed on the lockout portion. I actually couldn’t fully lock them out because of the pain.
525LBSx1 (this was an amrap option set but obviously I didn’t have an amrap in me today with the back pain so I hit the minimum.
4x20 barbell shrugs at 495LBS
4x15 seated cable rows
20 minute row (4100 meters)
Well it’s been about 1 year now since I begun powerlifting. My buddy @typick invited me to some gym (@brutestrengthgym) when we were stationed in Virginia and I was pretty skeptical and didn’t see the point of not just going to the base gym... little did I know... Needless to say, a year later my life has changed so much, and I believe I’ve grown so much as a person from it; physically and mentally. I’ve met some great people along the way and developed some lasting friendships as well it has given me great opportunities. I’m also beyond blessed at the teachers I’ve had in the sport. The difference I’ve found in this sport compared to others is that almost everyone is willing to help you learn, grow, fix an issue you may have, or just hangout at the gym for 5 hours and support you.
It ain’t cheap, it doesn’t often feel good on the body, and most people get irritated at you and think you’re a “gym bro”. But at the end of the day it’s the best feeling in the world doing something you love and are passionate about.
So if you were apart of my journey, you know who you are and thanks for the support... 10 weeks from now I’ll be competing in my first competition at @kogymca and I can’t fucking wait. 🤙

If you've spent hours researching different pre/post/intra/outtra? supplements but have no idea where your average daily calorie or protein intake are at... You need to re-evaluate how you use of time.
Supplements are, by definition, SUPPLEMENTARY. They may contribute 1% to your overall results... Perfect the 99% stuff first (consistent training & quality nutrition) then worry about the rest later.
