Forgot how long a video the rack pulls were. Here's the second half. 
Rack pulls from this mornings session. Worked up to 110kg for 5-4-3-2-1

Sam's inner monologue
.
.
Has this got heavier? Count to 15.... I need to bring my other phone to record things, this music is pants. Fuck... Didnt count. And lift! Why are there so many of these? Was that the three or four set? I did too many last time.... Argh, lift. God I'm making so much noise... That poor lass trying to front squat, I must be so annoying.... only two reps... Go!! Fuck it... I dont need the last rep, no one cares. Pants... I care. Just do it. .
.
.
And the face at the end.... You twat Sam... You forgot to breathe on that last one.

It's legday! So here was me squatting at what is usually a warm up weight for me but wait for it.... Count those reps! Yup!! 21 reps per set! 40kg has never felt so heavy. Not the best angle but these were feeling strong and controlled if a tad horrific. This was followed by sumo deadlifts and loads of accessories. .
.

Motivation for this week's legday was brought to you by @grrrl_clothing and their glorious glute highlighting leggings of wonder. 12/10 fully squat proof

So apparently I forgot how to deadlift 😭 ...125kg feeling like 140kg. Took me four attempts to get it off the ground before this, and had to drop back to 120kg for some grindy singles after that. I think my brain hates me...

133lb for 5⏭148lb AMRAP for 7 Depth is there. Slowly breaking through the fear of grinding out a squat. -

My worst nightmare = losing balance during a squat or hurting myself during a squat. I remain conservative with my goals for squat for now, focusing on the multitude of technical aspects πŸ”¨

190lb AMRAP for 7. Concentration was off but I’m trying to be grateful and take it one day at a time. Some days all you have time for is deadlift and go and that has to be enough. Missing my accessories πŸ‘ πŸ˜ž

Forget 'farmer carries' in the gym, I do this kind of stuff every day πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Just kidding. Seriously though, powerlifting has some very real applications for me in my daily life. I get fewer injuries at work, shifting heavy stuff like this 200L drum of chemical go from a ten minute slog to a minutes gentle exercise (efficiency!) And I am just generally more mindful of my body, my posture and of moving and lifting correctly. I wish more people would take up this amazing sport! And who doesn't want to get stronger anyway? πŸ˜„πŸ’ͺ

Yesterday's last successful bench at 72.5kg. I should have just gone for 75kg for my last attempt as I know I can lift it, but where's the fun in that? Hopefully this will be my openener next comp. 80kg I am coming for you soon...

Easy deload bench 63lb with an arch that no one can see. Maybe one day I’ll have an arch so visible that random dudes will try to tell me not to hurt my back. -

High bar paused squats moving pretty easy today at 75kg. Anyone else use chalk to mark their hip so they can check depth, or am I just being obsessive? πŸ˜‚

What to do when it's getting later in the day and you are trying to get your act together and go do your least favourite compound. 1 - put your hair in no nonsense pigtails, 2 - put on your best quad highlighting leggings, 3 - get in a rack and dance about to your favourite lifting track, 4 - put your big boy belt on and nail the evil front squats, 5 - eat!! #bigboyseason #frontsquats #womenwholift #determined #strongwomen #barbellsandbadasswomen #slowlygettingstronger #progress

Overhead press, inverted row, a bunch of leg and back stuff and some core work which I have been slacking on recently. Bring on next weeks program before Adelaide cup on the 28th! πŸ˜₯😩😎πŸ’ͺ

It's been a really crap work week and I've been comfort eating a bit while trying to stay in my macros so I was hugely surprised when I hopped on the scales this am to see a loss. 
And this loss brings me to a total of 10kg since May!! This makes for a very happy Sam, see story for the happy dance proof. 
And as if that wasnt enough, these jeans are a size smaller than the old ones! Getting stronger and leaner, could not be happier.

#transformationtuesday The evolution of Sam. From very podge Sam, to thin killing herself with cardio so a man would love her Sam, to an unsuprisingly podge Sam... Again, to the Strong Sam who couldn't be happier, even if she can't smile on front squat day. 
It's taken me a long time to get from left to right (8 years) but I am finally feeling like I looking almost as strong as I feel.

Tried out the uni gym today with @charmcitychick - my favourite training pal! Gym is so sparkly compared  to when I was there. We took forever working out but it felt ace to have a good solid workout after a few days with a dodgy shoulder. 
Here's one of my supersets of barbell lunges - which are looking lovely and strong (when I don't hit the rack with the barbell!!) And evil jump squats. You can see the joy on my face when they are over!! #barbellsandbadasswomen #strength #legday #strongwomen #trainingbuddy #liftingheavier #progressnotperfection #girlsthatlift #edinburghuniversity

148lb AMRAP for 6, it felt good and looked better! No problems with pelvic tilt. Mentally, squats are difficult for me right now. I can’t push them the way I do my deadlift because I’m afraid of failure. I’ve never dumped a bar before, so pushing for an AMRAP has been a process. This one I wasn’t sure about the 6th rep and I went for it so #progressnotperfection -

This one I wasn’t sure about the 6th rep and I went for it so #progressnotperfection  - - - - #powerliftingwomen  #gwpl  #barbellsandbadasswomen  #squat  #squats  ##onerepatatime  #brace  #asics  #lifeisheavygetstronger  #asianswholift  #abgswhosbd 
93lb AMRAP for 10. Not able to get to the gym as often as I like but I’m just happy I made it today. Bench out some feelings. -

Back into it. 6 x 6 at 45kg. The Boss has suggested that, since I already have my #gpcaustralia membership, why not enter the #gpcadelaidecup next month? May as well get as much exposure to the sport as possible. It will be my first sanctioned event...scary but exciting!! That's if I live through the training...tomorrow's deadlift session is going to have me shaking at the knees...πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’ͺπŸ˜“ #gymjunkie #lifting #weights #powerliftingwomen #powerliftingaustralia #powerlifting #strongwomen #strongchicks #womenwholift #ladieswholift #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgoals #fpgmethod #fuzzyspowergym #barbellsandbadasswomen #benchpress #bench #press

2nd ever meet yesterday - 1st full power. Super ppl to be in the company of @universalathletics . Proud of my lifts and officially addicted to powerlifting.  Got 275#/124.73kg  squat, 145#/65.77kg bench (missed my 160#/72.57kg), 330#/149.68kg dead.  Sry if kgs aren't listed right. I used an online converter 😜
I'd be remiss if I didn't give many, many thanks to Brian Crowe for taking me under his wing and coaching me and, of course, @kaos61810 for always being willing to help coach and for the extra help yesterday at the meet.

193lb AMRAP for 10. I never jump up sprightly at the end of these sets, I don’t know how all these people on the gram do it. My style is more of a β€œlean over and almost fall down after deadlifts” πŸ˜‚

I've spent a lot of time over the last 8/9 years thinking I was too big and trying to get back to my pre-uni size 10. I almost got there once but it was super unsustainable. So instead, with my change in focus to lifting not cardio and trying to eat more real food and fuel my body I am seeing sustainable changes. All the curves coming out to play. 
However I will always have big beautiful soul crushing thighs (what else could balance out my E cups!!). And why would I want to change them! They carry me through life excellently, my soul crushers. Who needs a thigh gap. This is the way I am and I love it. 
Shout out to @nlhfit for the post inspiration

Pros: I finished the set. My form was better than last time. Overall not too shabby for first leg day in over a week. Top set: 180lbs./82kg
Cons: IT WAS SO GRUNDY. But I remain happy with it regardless (see above Pros). I’ll stick here again until it moves better.

This workout was much needed after that flaming dumpster fire of a week I had last week. Felt great. I also offered my first piece of unsolicited gym advice. It was to a couple trying to teach their puppy how to run on a treadmill. πŸ˜‚ #AlwaysHelping

This is the most I have squatted in the past couple of months. Due to my impromptu decision to enter the novice comp at the gym this weekend, coach had to make some quick changes to my training. Went from endless volume to a slow build up to 3 singles at 90kg. Can't believe how much better my squats look now to how they did a few short months ago...also hoping my new lifting belt arrives in time. This velcro POS has served it's purpose but time for a big girl belt πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚

What’s inspires you? #MYJOURNEY @billyfeben_myjourney @ballistixss ~
There’s a few people I can think of today who inspire me 2 are @steficohen and @quadzilla619 they are amazingly strong lifters both in different weight classes and both at the top of their game. Both more than doubling their body weight in their lifts and holding world records. I have come a long way myself but still have a long road ahead I want to be at that point where I can double body weight deadlift and squat for sure! But there’s so much more to it there’s my health and my mental health that benefit so much from powerlifting and my body is so much more than just fat, muscle and bones and lifting has made my confidence grow so much In the last year and though I’ve been beaten down I’ve never felt as strong. Keep it up ladies I will continue to be inspired by you! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ -

Full on upper body hypertrophy session today, followed by a 22 min, headspin inducing HIIT session on the tready. Trying to balance cardio (which I hate) with weights (which I love). Ultimately, I want to be fit, strong and flexible. Shedding 15kg of body fat would definitely be a bonus as well! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘£πŸƒ

I tend to measure my upper body strength by how many pull-ups and chin ups I can do/how high I can get. Not so long ago, the tally was 0. I decided to focus on banded sessions so that I can focus on technique without injuries (I pulled a muscle under my right shoulder blade a few weeks back). Just like anything else, increasing reps before increasing weight is a good plan and this has been a great way of doing it. Todays tally: 5 chin ups, 4 wide arm overhand pull ups and 4 narrow grip overhand pull ups as part of my bench press warmup.

F&*k yes. Wanted to do some test lifts after yesterday's deadlift marathon, but had no juice left in the tank. And today, a new PB at 120kg. Reckon I could have gone 122.5kg but I don't have any baby plates that fit this barbell. Next time! 😎πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Today my soul is soaring
Way over mountains high
Though I can see the valleys
They’re all just passing by
It’s not that I am stronger
Look at my feeble wings
But I’ve been lifted higher
Yahweh’s lifted me in His own strength
- β€œI Need You,” Josh Bales

I was NOT feeling it mentally today. It has been a crappy, crappy week. I’ve felt like a punching bag filled with stress since Sunday. I came up with every excuse in the book not to be here today. But hey, sometimes you have to leave it at the cross before you can leave it at the gym. Tried to practice casting my anxiety on my Heavenly Father first because I know I am His personal concern. Thankful for this gift of yet another 2018 PR, 10lbs. off my current overall PR.

What is everyone else doing today? #barbellsandbadasswomen  #determined  #strong  #bench  #deadlfts  #strongnotskinny  #girlswholift  #liftingheavyshit  #strongwomen  #allineedisthegreyhoodie  #misstrunchbull  #liftingmakesmehappy  #puregymedinburghwest  #purrgym  #nailedit 
How to get a smaller waist... Don't. Get bigger quads and it'll look smaller!! Last leg day of the week was an absolute struggle but it's done. Slowly making weight progress with the back squats now the form is there... Even the night. #strongnotskinny #progressnotperfection #determined #puregymedinburghwest #puregym #legday #strongwomen #girlswholift #liftingheavyshit #squats #struggle #needfood #barbellsandbadasswomen
Learned several lessons today:
1) Don’t try to squeeze two days of exercise into one if you will be out of town the following day. I know you want to, but one or both workouts will feel like total poo. Especially if you do cardio first.
2) You lift better with just a preworkout, not breakfast. Breakfast = 🀒
3) You still a beast and got an ugly 2018 PR in spite of it all.
.
Top set of 180lbs./81kg for 3. Probably gonna hang here for the next workout or two until it’s a little less grindy. Also, Autocorrect changed that to β€œGrundy,” which I have never typed but like better. Squats felt Grundy today.

For about ten years, all I did was eat, sleep and work. Eventually it caught up and I had a major burnout. I felt exhausted, depressed and dead inside, like a shell of a person. Over the past 6 years, I have slowly introduced some balance into my life and started actually doing all the things that I kept meaning to do, instead of having a rolling 'one day' list. I bought a camera first and started getting in to photography. That inspired me to get back into art.  I jumped onto every dairy industry committee I could, and now work as a part time volunteer director on one. I kept on meaning to volunteer on a local Country Fire Service brigade, so late last year my partner and I did. And a few months ago I decided that the last missing link to feeling like a well rounded human being was to get into shape, and I discovered Powerlifting. Life isn't perfect, and there are always excuses for not doing the things you want to do. But sometimes you just have to make the time. You only live once. Stop talking and start doing. You won't regret it. 😚πŸ’ͺπŸ’•πŸ„πŸ“·πŸš’πŸ’―πŸ”₯

Aaaaand this is why Mom is having a hard time finding a sleeve size for my Ren Fest dress. She’s like, β€œYou better not let your shoulders get any bigger.” Mmhmm, β€˜kay Mom. πŸ˜‚ #PumpItUp #CantStopWontStop

Consistency: being there even when you don’t want to be. Doing the work even when you feel like you’d rather hide from the world. Facing your everyday fears and conquering them simply by walking through those gym doors. May you be consistent this week! -

A successful Sunday! 6am start, meal prepped for the week, had a great legs session with @charmcitychick where I tried to get used to my belt (this training shit is getting serious!) And a lovely 90 min recovery walk at beecraigs. Now for bed I think!! #balancedweekend #girlswholift #strongnotskinny #strongwomen #barbellsandbadasswomen #mealprep #alwayslearning #newfriends #recovery #lifting #squats #progressnotperfection #beecraigs #puregymedinburghwest #edinburgh
