Final set of some super slow doubles last night ft. The encouraging words from @nickm_strongman.
Having always been a conventional deadlifter I'm used to the bar popping off of the floor quick. The hardest thing mentally with the switch over to sumo has been patience off of the floor, but I'm slowly getting there. Not currently expecting massive strides in my deadlift in time for the British, but even a small PB compared to conventional will be a big positive!
See what our member Nate has to say about training at 413... "For me, 413 has become a place that helps me prepare to be a better leader & has created a community that encourages me in healthy living."

Comment gardez-vous la motivation de continuer à vous entrainez dur? 👊
Personnellement, je VISUALISE mes objectifs (j'imagine mon corps avec l'évolution que je souhaite, je regarde des physiques que j'aimerais atteindre) ✅
Je me RAPPELLE du chemin déjà parcouru (que ce soit niveau temps passé à la salle, depuis quand j'ai ce mode de vie sain, l'évolution de mon poids, de mon physique, de mon mental, de ma vision de la vie) ✅
Je PLANIFIE mes entrainements de la semaine le dimanche le plus souvent suivant mon travail et ma vie privée. Une fois planifié, c'est certain que je respecterai ces jours (sauf exceptions) et ce que j'ai prévu de travailler, je me fixe chaque semaine des objectifs plus hauts et j'essaye de me challenger! ✅
Je PARTAGE sur Instagram pour motiver et ça me motive également d'avoir vos messages, vos commentaires... Je découvre également des personnes très motivantes chaque jour ✅
Je NOURRIS ma motivation lorsque je reçois un compliment sur mon évolution car parfois j'ai tendance à ne plus voir mes progrès. Un commentaire de ma famille, de mon chéri, d'une amie, d'une collègue, de l'un d'entre vous est toujours très enrichissant ✅
I’ve learned two big things in the past month: feeling sorry for yourself can affect you just as much physically as it can emotionally and I sure miss having a barbell on my back
I’ve lost quite a bit a strength not being in the gym for some time now but I’m glad to be back
Slowly getting back into the swing of things with:
3x5 squats 255
3x8 pause squats 185
3x4 deadlift 275
Deadlift video was to check form and make sure my butt isn’t shooting up before I lift
Feels good to be home
3 meses entrenando con @sapepe07 , desde entonces he aprendido a exigirme cada día más, a cargar pesado, a ser un atleta eficiente, y he logrado obtener algo de confianza en mi mismo, pero todavía no se lo que es ser fuerte... lo mejor esta por venir GO HARD
240kg dead lift, no wraps just a dusting of chalk. Back in the swing of it now, finished off with some 100m sprints pleased with the little bit of pace I’ve held onto while this stage of my training is going on. Getting the food side of it right now too. Thanks again to @scottchippendalept #deadlift#gym#training#personalbest#pullday#backday#underarmour#weights
Lifting at lunch today. Wanted to maintain a steady pace as I rebuild my anaerobic base. Tried to pull a calorie every two pulls on the rower. Broke deadlifts up in 5 rep sets. Kept box jumps unbroken each round. 15:08 with rest.
10 Deadlifts at 225#
10 box jumps at 30”
10 calorie row/ or bike
1 minute of rest after each round.
"All of this disorder, no addressin'
The crown is broken in pieces, but there's more in my possession..." Currently 12 weeks out from my next competition in Fort Valley, Georgia at the Savage Open. This will be the most competitive competition yet so my mental focus has to be there. These next 3 months will be something serious. My effort has always been 100% but over these next 3 months it will have to be up to 200%. Thanks to all my friends, family, and strangers that support me being a strength athlete. Never forget to thank the man above 🙏. Let's keep these ten toes down and keep grinding my G's! @sir_gymratfitness @claj_1991 @aupowerlifting @virusintl @sbdapparel @usapowerlifting @recon_ro @junkbrands #WeakSquatBros#SGF#aulift
I’ve been powerlifting for a year and a half now. I got into powerlifting because I’m a personal trainer and I felt tired of working out without a goal. I’m not a size two, and I felt like I was constantly striving for some “ideal” and “perfect” body that was always out of reach. Since I’ve started powerlifting I’ve realized that my body will never be a size two, I’ll never look like the Instagram models I always see... but damnit I’ll out lift them 😂⠀
Powerlifting isn’t about what you look like.. no one cares if you’re a size 2 or a size 12. What matters is that you push yourself and you support each other. There is no better feeling than walking out on the platform and hearing everyone cheering for you. ⠀
The community is unbelievable. Wherever you’re from, whether you’re lifting an empty bar or going for a world record, everyone cheers the same. ⠀
From powerlifting I’ve made amazing friends who are more like family. I wouldn’t have done it any other way and I’m so happy I found a sport I love.
Realizing as of late, how our circumstances and our surroundings can really cause a shift in our emotions in the blink of an eye. Seeing a particular person can fill you with rage or excitement. Seeing a number pop up on your phone can create feelings of regret or optimism. So much as hearing a certain name can completely change the course of your day.
And often times we can’t control our surroundings. We can’t control who we see when we decide to go to town for some shopping or the the gym to train. And we cant live in isolation forever. But what we can do, is to do our best to change the way we think and react. To rewire our brains to the extent that we have better control over our emotions, to become more logical thinkers.
So next time something silly like seeing a certain someone or even hearing a certain song gets you feeling some kind of way, stay mindful and react accordingly. Take control of your emotions, don’t let them control you. That’s my thought of the day, but there is a lack of blood flowing to my brain due to just training legs, so I’m probably talking shit 🤷🏼♂️

My friend @flap.jackk_ gave me an idea of making a post about the teenager in Quebec,Canada.
Here are my thoughts on the whole thing predicament.
It was wrong for the man to assault the teenager in the middle of his set he could have caused him major injuries to his neck, back, arms, and his wrist etc...but if I were in that situation I would have either reported the man to the gym manager or to authorities or either sued the gym and man all together for not using correct and professional procedures. I watched the video a couple week ago and @bradleymartyn made a video on it as well and he said that if the teen was being too loud only thing he would have had to do is ask someone that works in the gym to confront him instead of himself. (Share in the comments below what you think about this.) #gym#canada#teenager#deadlift#fail
"One drop of oil can ruin an entire vat of fresh water.. Just as one ounce of doubt can ruin an entire well of Faith.." 🙌🏽🖤
Never ever doubt your ability to succeed.. there will always be plenty of others doing that for you. Prove them wrong😈🤘🏽
252.5kg / 555lb x3x3 HUGE PR 🇺🇸
Thanks @andyherstam for the hype 🕺🏻
So check this #transformationtuesday . Left is about 7 weeks ago and the right pic was this past Sunday. Noticing some good body composition changes while eating more. I’m looking a bit leaner in my upper abdominal area, back, and hips. But I’ve had some bloating and digestion issues and my weight is up about 1-2lbs this last week. My carb sources were about 90% from rice and potatoes but I had started to incorporate more processed carbs like oats, granola, and some breads. I’ve switched back to the majority of all carb sources being rice, potatoes, and some fruit. Bloating has already been reduced and weight has come down nearly 1lb in two days. I will be having donuts next week for my birthday though, bloat or not.
Craaazzyy!! It‘s gonna be a very exciting @mrolympiallc this year....

Conventional PR from 545 to 565lbs. Hips shot up but still got the lift. Form work is going to be implemented in the powerlifting program from @hybridperformancemethod go subscribe to one of their many programs & Nutrition 🤘
Today was my press day, however experiemented with conventional again and tried a more comfy wider sumo - sumo feels stronger and faster but conventional was very surprisingly easy. Log press was better than last week but still poor.
