Last of some 6s on pause deads with 170kg. Everything is feeling good and moving well now I’m reacquainted with comp equipment.
My bodyweight is currently around 96kg, and that’s more or less where I aim to keep it for my debut in the 105s.

Last sesh for the week. 410lbs on blocks for doubles. For bench gots some 250lbs for 4x5s on 2 board @benchblokz 250s are like repping my comp opener bench and it’s feeling like cake at BW 146 😛 @charlesokpoko #powerlifting#uspapowerlifting#uspa#uspapower
Sleep has gone to shit again this week. Anxiety peaked this week. I rather it peak this week then later to be honest. MCAT in less than a month. I really hope I do well. Not sure where I’m going in life right now. Just gotta keep on truckin’.

That one time I had the pleasure of working with @timmylifts!
"Working with Coach Waylon was a great experience! I needed to get lose weight but still gain strength for my powerlifting competition. I needed all the help I could and I know Waylon from my past competition as he was a competitor. He helped me from the basics all the way to how sodium affects strength. Two things I love about working with Waylon is he is very approachable and he ensures your goals are met up to a point where he forgets to charge me for his fees 😬. Ultimately he is a great coach and a friend. Lost weight but still managed to gain 60lbs to my total!" -- Tim
Met the homie at a USPA powerlifting meet few years ago and he came to me interested in learning how to apply flexible dieting to his lifestyle, and manage his weight down to be able to compete in the 165 class while training through a meet prep to get stronger and hit PRs. Stronger and leaner? Yes it can be done. Since it was our first rodeo together, he managed his training separately while I managed his calories and macros -- we took a slow and controlled approach, dropping weight at a very slow rate at about 0.5-0.75 lbs of fat loss per week so performance wouldn't be hindered. Dropped -8 lbs in 12 weeks. No extreme water cuts required. No foods were restricted. PRs and hardware earned. Follow my ol friend and his fitness journey @timmylifts

Currently a little under 15 weeks out from my next meet and this is the strongest and leanest I’ve been in quite a bit. 162lbs, stronger, a little faster & thriving 🤗 Maybe it’s the added cardio, or finally eating right (thanks @jordanichole_smith 💕) or maybe it’s @t.clow’s programming — or maybe it’s a little bit of everything. 💎
Big things to come in all aspects of life this year, it feels good to feel less anxious and depressed and finally feel as though I have a purpose again. I can’t express how important that is & I’m so grateful. 😩🙏🏼
This is the best I’ve felt all year long; it’s crazy how much practicing some self love & working on yourself and the power of prayer can make a difference. I’m really out here living my best life ✨👑 But man, does it feel good to feel good 😭💛🤟🏼🌻
Sumo deadlift it is.
Keeping conventional volume going for a bit longer though. Even though it’s not my primary for this meet it is definitely my most valuable accessory.
Training by @brainsandbrawnathletics
I took a full year off. Today was week 6 of deadlifts and I’m back to 500 already. I’m proud of myself 👌🏾 1.) Paused Deadlift: 500x1. 5x4 at 410 (back off’s). 2.) Snatch Grip DL (from blocks): 345 for 5’s.
3.) High Bar Squat (no belt, no sleeves, no heels): 3x5 at 135.
4.) GHR’s until my hamstrings felt like they were literally ripping out of my body.
